Simple hair knot style.

 Hello, hope you're having a good day. I've recently started doing a really easy hairstyle where my hair is down but the front section are out of my face which I love for school. You only need a brush or comb and a few hair slides depending on how thick your hair is. I need one for each side because of my thin hair but sometime a few stray strands need to be pinned.

You start with your hair brushed or you could curl it if you wanted, whatever you like. Take a triangle section from the front then split it into two strands. Tie a normal knot with them and pull them as tight as you want.


Once you have tied a knot add more hair to the two strands and tie another knot then pull it tight as you want. Pin the strands to your head. You can hide the pins under the knots you have made but it takes a fiddle and a bit of practice.


It should hopefully looked a bit like these pictures but the good thing about this style is that you can change it to suit you.
Have fun with it.

Flower power.


Hello, I love to be creative and especially when i can be create things for others. When my niece was born I really wanted to make something that she could keep for a long time. I got inspiration from things that have birth dates on but since i cant sow; i had to think of something else. I collected flowers from my garden and put them in tea towels in heavy books with bricks on top if them. I had no idea how they would come out since I had never done flower pressing before but I had faith.
After a few weeks I unwrapped them I was so happy with the results so stuck them down in a bit of a random fashion, but yet pretty.
I mounted the paper on red card and framed it in a Ikea white frame which was a reasonable price.
I wrote her name and birth date in the center and gave it as a present. Obviously she couldn't enjoy as much as my sister did, but hopefully in the future she will love it. I would recommend this to anyone no matter whether you are crafty or not. Its simple but effective.

Leaving.



Warning. Very chatty and emotional.
It's a mixture of my leavers day and things I have learnt that I want to tell you.

Hello wonderful people. Hope you are having a nice day. On Friday it was my last official day of year eleven. (I still have exams) it was a day filled with weird emotions that were all very different. I am going back to the same school that I have been going to for five years in September to start sixth form, where I will do my A levels and wear my own normal clothes. This is where the emotions start. 
I have to get five Bs to come back which for me is not an easy accomplishment. What if I don't get the right grades and where will I go. I have never considered going to college or to do an apprenticeship. I don't want to go to another school either. 

The picture underneath is my best friends and I with our signed shirts. Another thing is that without noticing sometime I compare myself to my friends who are all very clever and can get easly get all A*s. What if I have to leave them? I hate all this uncertainty. 

If you forget all this waffle I have provided( wouldn't blame you.) please take this away with you; don't compare yourself to other. You are great as you are!



My school provided a fantastic day where we talk about memories and basically play together like children! They bought inflatable games for us and they were well used. I was rubbish at all them apart from one where I won a silly game against my friends. 
This was great because I have never enjoyed school unfortunately. I wish I could but causes too much stress and unanimity for me to feel truly comfortable. I was excited through out the day at being one step closer to leaving, but I do appreciate the eduction I have received. I very lucky but I also think a home eduction would of suited me better.
Another little message please appreciate what you have because there are so many people who don't have anything.




Many people in my year are going in different directions and lots of them I will miss. Some not  so much. My bestest friend my be going to a different school in September which breaks my heart a little but she hasn't fully decided. I've told her that I would much rather her leave and be happy then stay and be miserable. She made a jam jar with slips of paper with our saying, jokes and general lovely things about me to make me happy. She is the kindest person I know and I don't deserve her.
Next thing I've leant. Always think of people's feeling before you act or say something and try not to be selfish. It doesn't end well. 




I may only be young but I do feel like the big bad world is getting ever closer. Responsibility is becoming apparent. I have so many feelings right now and I'm glad I've been able to get them out.
Tell people that you appreciate them because you don't how long you will be with them. 
Sorry for having to read this. What leaving experiences do you have? How do you deal with too many emotions?
Love you all.

April favorites.




Hello, I thought this week I would do an April favorites, because I usually just stick to talk about one thing, so I'm going to talk about a few things. Here are the things I've been loving this month even if they a bit random without explanation.



So these are my new walking boots that I have bought for my Duke of Edinburgh award which I shall be doing as you are reading this, so please think dry warm weather thoughts for me. I already have walking boots which are extremely comfy but they do not have ankle support with is really needed. I shall be walking 48k this weekend so they have to be broken in otherwise my feet will be covered in painful blisters.I bought them from Go outdoors which is fantastic for things outdoorsy. (Obviously) But they are really good for clothes, tents and all sorts. I really hope these boots live up to my expectations.


As the sun is coming out to say hello I am looking forward to getting more colour in my skin. I never have and probably never will be a fake tanner, mostly because I'm scared it will go wrong knowing me.But I discovered this from one of my older sisters (perks of being the youngest child). It is a great moisturizer and as you can see it gradually helps you tan. I have found you actually have to go out in the sun, because it won't suddenly appear overnight. I do think it helps as there hasn't been that much sun to give me the more tanned look I now sport. When I mean tan I don't mean orange ,but I'm just no longer paper white. 


I wore these in a previous post when I was playing with my new yellow coat. I love them so much because of the shape and colour. They are cat eyed and brown with speckles on. I found them in a shop called pound stretchers which isn't usually the kind of shop I go in, but I'm so pleased that I did. They were 99p! I don't know how long they will last but I will enjoy them while they do. 


Loving this foundation is nothing new for the internet. I haven't been able to where has it had been the wrong shade but now its perfect. I love the consistency, the feel of it and how it looks. I only have to use a small pump on the back of my hand to cover my face. It lasts as long as I won't it to and it has SPF in so I know my skin will be protected. I would recommend this foundation to anyone. 
What have you been loving this month?
