New friendships

hi guys! It’s been a while!

New friendships are an interesting thing, and it doesn’t have to just be meeting someone new, it can also be that you know someone, and you realise you are friends. πŸ™‚

It’s an uplifting feeling when it clicks you are friends with someone and you can get this feeling with anyone!

Making friends is easy, and not as difficult as people make it out to be, it can actually be pretty simple, it depends on how engaged the other person is to you, and if they want to be Friends with you as well

I have some small tips to help:

Smile

Laugh

Talk to said person

Hang out with them, or walk with them if you can

Don’t become to committed to someone who isn’t responding to you

Be chill about it!

Today it clicked to me I’ve made more friends this school year rather that any other year, and I think this is because I’ve not been in the same classes as my other friends I already know, and I think we can feel tied down by our friends sometimes and not even realise it, because it’s the norm to you. Making new friends is extremely important, but so it being friendly to everyone, and many people forget this, since you have your own friends, and don’t need anyone else!

In a way you could take this advice for crushes as well, since, from personal experience, you can commit and feel tied down to one person, because you like them, and even if so and so’s friends say he likes you, or this and that builds up the courage to ask you out, and you let her down because you decided not to like her instead.

A big part of it is when you get ignored by someone/ someones, but as soon as you get a small bit of attention, to keep you interested you get hooked again, and that’s most likely the dilemma for most people when it comes to this topic in general

In the end it falls into keeping an open mind and not being held down by one person or a group of people, as there are so many new friends or crushes out there you are avoiding, all because you never thought to switch your sight from one person to another

My posts nower days do seem short! This is a topic close to my heart, as I have been like this and so have many of my Friends. Hope you have a lovely lovely day!! Keep strong guys, and enjoy yourself!

Friday the thirteenth!

How to start this…. πŸ˜„

For the superstitious, I may be starting to agree with you all haha

Our fire alarm went off today, but there was a real fire!! (Minor, not major), and let’s be honest, that hardly ever happens!

Next, my pen exploded. In my pocket. Everywhere. I think I’m just seriously unlucky, not gonna lie πŸ˜„ I take it out of my pocket, and inks all over my earphones, and my hands πŸ˜‚ disaster! There wasn’t enough time to go to the toilet and wipe my hands, so i end up walking into French class covered in ink πŸ˜„

Luckily I had hand sanitiser (soap and glory, really good!) and eventually it wore off, thank god!!

On the good side I had the best day yesterday, and today the new Netflix series I’ve been ranting on about has FINALLY come out!! It’s called ‘a series of unfortunate events’ and I’m on episode 5 at the moment * cough binge watching cough* it follows the books way more than the film, if you have seen it, and it very interesting!

I’m sorry this post isn’t going to be long, the weeks been long (everyone can agree with that I’m sure!) I hope you have a splendid day or night, keep it real and love you all πŸ™‚

Candles ❀️

Hi guys! This was a long time coming,, if I’m honest πŸ˜„

candles are such a lovely way of lighting up a room and relaxing!

Let’s go!

img_1705

(Sorry the photos aren’t amazing haha)

This is a very clean and fresh candle, called blue lotus, by la jolie muse (I believe) and burns very well!!

img_1710

My fave! This is gingerbread, by next. when I was in the shop with my friend, who I’ll call Shally , we were smelling nexts candles (we go candle shopping together way more than the normal human being should) and she found this one, made me smell it and I HAD to get it πŸ˜„ I hadn’t got a xmas candle before haha!

Very Christmassy, smells just like cookies and gingerbread (duhhhh) and is good when cooking!

img_1712

This brilliant candle is plum blossom and vanilla, and it’s from primark (no. 15). So fruity and and delicious! If you like bright, rich smells, this is for you!

img_1717

Madagascan scan vanilla, also from primark (no. 17) light and pretty sweet, another lovely one for cooking or baking πŸ™‚

img_1714

So this is lotus flower, from primark (yet again..πŸ˜‚) and is, like the blue lotus, very fresh and calming

img_1718

Now I can’t remember what this candle is called, but I got it from an adorable little hop in Filey, which is such a gorgeous place by the way!! Anyway, this candle smells herby and JUST like a garden!!

img_1719

These candles are my bigger ones ( the wicks lost in 2 of them 😦 ) and the purple one is lavender, and I think I got it from clintons, and lighting it before you go to sleep is a great idea! The white one is called fresh cotton, and is so cleansing and beautiful! The pink one is called rejuvenating spa, and is a little stronger than fresh cotton, but they are just as lovely!

Cute candle holders

img_1721

Everyone needs cute little candle holders in there life, to make everything look even better!

img_1722

Tea lights are the nicest things, and if you want to light up your bath, or have a romantic setting, these are brill!

Candle snuffers

img_1724

Useful and practical! I don’t think I can count the amount of times I’ve tried to blow out candles and wax going everywhere πŸ˜… for clumsy people! I guarantee these a lot!!

Hopefully I get to do this again! Sorry again the photos aren’t the best quality, but I hope you like it!! Have a brilliant day or night, bye!

Random talks 2

Hey guys! It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for an update and chat of the day!

This is a lovely thing to do right now, actually πŸ˜„ I’m really tired, so any slip ups, you know why πŸ™‚

At the mo I’m reading young samurai, the way of the warrior. So amazing so far!! I really guarantee it! I believe I mentioned it in my fave books post (very long, and only for the brave book heads haha) so I’d give the way of a warrior go!!

I took my earrings out for the first time yesterday, and it was all good! I didn’t like putting them back in at the time because it’s quite an odd feeling at the start, but I think now my ears have felt air (XD) they are better with it. I could do some sort of jewellery post, though I’m not really into loads of jewellery, but let me know if you are interested in it!

Recently I thought of some small tips for bloggers starting out that I learnt, so here we go!

1) keep a notepad for ideas

Ok, this is important for the forgetful ones *slowly puts hand up* because I tend to forget ideas, or like if you saw my 40 fave songs post, I had to write up the songs in my book. Having a list of ideas, and a place to jot down stuff so you can remember them, like if you are at school or work!

2) don’t give up!

Seriously soooooo important! Remember you most likely started up your blog as a hobby or a passion, and it’s not about having people read your stuff (that’s just an amazing plus!!❀️) it’s about spreading joy and happiness onto something that could end up like a scrapbook in a few years, if you keep it up!

3) talk about what you love, not what people love

You’ll attract people who are similar to you, so do what you like!

Hope this helps anyone starting out!!

Recently I’ve been thinking about doing a drawing talk, for my fellow artsie peps, coz art is such a big part of my life, and I think art has so many beautiful messages in it!

So, drama. Mainly girl drama. Honestly, the worst πŸ˜„ I love all my friends so much, but I’ve always got along with guys easier, I think it’s coz I’m very blunt, and, in my experience, girls are a lil’ bit…. sensitive? No hate to sensitive people, I can be sensitive sometimes too, but I guess you could say I’m insensitive to people πŸ˜„
I find boys easier to make friends mainly because I kinda ,ok sounds odd, but insult ( jokingly and sarcastically) and sometimes, with some of my friends, they take it the wrong way? πŸ˜‚ no idea what I’m on about, I hope someone relates

I’ve always been a tomboy, but as times gone on I guess you could say I’ve got more girly as such, but, as some of my other fellow tomboys experience, my more girly friends tease us if we act more girly, which makes us rebel even more πŸ™‚

I’m one of those people who get told they can’t or shouldn’t do something, but then that makes them want and or try to do it πŸ˜„ I think what I’ve learnt from this post is that I connect with boys more than girls, interesting!

Gonna cut this short, but I enjoyed this post, kinda rants, but oh well! Let me know if you like any of the ideas I mentioned above about new posts :p have a lovely day/night πŸ™‚

Studying

Hiya!! 

As I sit at my table,  writing up stuff and tying loose ends,  I thought pop back to my blog and talk about it😂

My art homework is definely almost finished!!! I need to get the images for it,  but then we are done!  We are doing notan, which is a Japanese art is which  you use dark and light paper and cut out shapes in the dark paper,  and put them on the flip image on the white paper. hope that made any sense,  if not i’d look it up πŸ™‚ 

I’d love to learn more about Japanese culture in the past, like 1600s ish. It’s very interesting,  from what I know ☺ 

Not finished my design food homework yet,  which is about food around the world. So far I’ve done Italy, and I only have to study up 5,  but my idea was to do one country from every continent (maybe not Antarctica thou) πŸ™‚

 

Also been writing up in my diary,  I’ve written in it everyday so far,  and for me that’s amazing!  Suprised I remembered to be honest πŸ˜„ I recommend a diary to you sooooo much,  they are so lovely! My diary has a lovely quote on it,  and I think it’s good you love how your diary looks because its got all your memories and feelings in it,  so it should reflect that! 

^one of my favroite quotes! 

One of my biggest wishes is to visit Italy, the culture, the history and even re essence of it just sounds perfect!  

In Easter I’m going to south Africa,  and I can’t wait to take photos of the animals and the scenery πŸ™‚ expect a post on that!  

Talking of photography,  I had that today!  I love just being able to keep them forever,  and look back on memories,  just like my diary!!  

It’s still winter,  but you can start to see spring ‘springing’ (I’m hilarious😂) through the frost on the grass,  and the blossom tree outside my Nans is blooming! Springs not my favroite season (autumn is) but it’s one of the most beautiful ☺
Hope this isn’t to short,  I can’t really tell since I wrote it on my phone,  but I really enjoyed writing this,  and just having a little matter,  you know?  

Hope you have a beautiful day!!

Music is life 🎢 + Sunday roasts

Evening! Titles a little bit exaggerated

No it’s not

It is! Anyway, if you’d like me to do a post on my fave songs, then let me know, but for now let’s get started

I honestly think life would be so different if music wasn’t around, you know, like it’d be so boring if music wasn’t always on the radio!

I mean, I’m listening to CeeLo Green right at this moment, what gets better than that!

What if music was never created, people like Beethoven wouldn’t be remembered, and it’d be quite bland really.

What would you be doing instead of listening to music? Pretty sure I’d just be sitting in silence πŸ˜„

My fave genre of music is alternative rock, and a lil bit of pop (teeny weeny bit), and I’ve really got into 1990-2000s music recently! Personally I’m not really keen on much music on the radio right now, I like some of it, definitely, but meh.

Another question I have is why do people hate nickelback?! I honestly have no clue why, and love some, of their songs (maybe not all, but most!) I think I just like the speeds and tempos of their songs, as their very similar to other bands and musicians I like πŸ™‚

If anyone’s looking for song recommendations, I’ll say you should listen to (was 3 but changed it to 4 picks):

Livin’ la vida local by Ricky Martin

I believe in a thing called love by the darkness

Kryptonite by 3 doors down

When you were young by the killers

I realise all the songs are quite old, 2000ish and mainly rock,such varied taste πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I threw in Sunday roasts coz about half an hour ago I just had one 😊😊

Beef and pork, carrots and broccoli and the most important bit, Yorkshire puddings!

Seriously if you’ve never had one you NEED TO!!

I’m not gonna rant about dinner, so I’ll stop myself now before it gets heated πŸ˜‚

Hope you have a great day or night, keep listening to music, enjoy your dinner, and bye!!
πŸ™‚
