Sisterhood Of The World Award

I am very happy to announce that I have been nominated for the ‘Sisterhood of the World Award’. This is where female bloggers nominate other female bloggers that feel like sisters to them or have helped them out with blogging.

I am very grateful for my nomination from Lindsey  as I am fairly new to the blogging society, however I like the fact that you can make so many friends and meet so many new people through blogging.

 

Here are my questions

  1. Do you have any pets?– Yes, I have two cats.
  2. What would be the first thing you did with 1 million pounds? This is a tough one, at the minute I would probably save it as I want to go travelling after college, so I would probably put the money towards that, a house and a car.
  3. What was the last book you read? It was my driving theory test book- I read 10 pages and gave up.. don’t think I’ll be passing any time soon!
  4. What’s your favourite flavour of ice cream? I love mint, or just plain vanilla. The best ice cream I have ever had was in Croatia.
  5. Why did you start blogging? My auntie blogs, and I always wanted to do it as a hobby, and I thought about making one with my sister a few years ago, but I was too young and I didn’t have enough time on my hands, so when I started talking to my auntie about blogging during the summer holidays, I realised I would have enough time before college started to sort my blog out, write a few posts and see what happened.
  6. Tea or coffee? Herbal tea or coffee.
  7. If you could travel anywhere on earth where would you go and why? Back to Australia, because It’s a huge place, I’d go and see my family out there, I’d like to go back and see more of the barrier reef and maybe travel up north.
  8. If you could marry any celebrity who would it be? David Beckham. He’s just wow.
  9. What would your superpower be? To be invisible, I think to spy on people or go to places you shouldn’t be would be cool.
  10. What piece of advice would you give your younger self? That even though some girls are horrible, do not let it get you down, do what you want, do what you love and If people want to judge, let them judge. Don’t do something to satisfy someone else.

The Rules…
1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award, and link back to their blog
2. Answer the 10 questions given to you
3. Nominate a further bloggers for the award
4. Write 10 questions for those nominees to answer
5. Display the award on your blog, or post!

The questions are

  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. What is/was your nickname and why?
  3. What would be your perfect date?
  4. What did you want to be when you were growing up?
  5. What are your hopes for this year?
  6. What’s your guiltiest pleasure in life?
  7. What’s your favourite film?
  8. What is your biggest regret?
  9. If you could only keep 5 possessions, what would they be

Just to let you know..

Hey guys,

College starts on Monday, and I couldn’t be more excited to get back into training and be around my friends again.

However this means that, I will only be posting once a week; mainly on Saturdays at 6PM GMT, and occasionally I might post during the week.

Thank you for all the support

New Year Resolutions

I’m fairly good at writing new year resolutions and sticking to them, so this year I have decided to share mine with you guys so that I can go back to this post at the end of the year to see if I managed to stick to all of them.

  • Drink more water

Drinking water is very important and unfortunately I know I don’t drink enough, especially as I’m a runner. So I want to purchase  one of these cool drinking bottles that say how much you should be drinking through out the day.Drink-More-Water-Brita-Water-Bottle.jpg

  • Create a memory jar

Me and one of my old friends did this one year; It’s where you have a jar, and every day you write down a memory or something that made you smile, and then at the end of the year, you look back through the jar and relive your memories.

  • Think less/ do more

This year I spent too many nights over thinking and making situations 10x worse in my head than what they already were. So this year I want to try and stop myself from thinking too much, and try to live life in the moment, say yes to doing more things that I enjoy. A spoke a bit about this in another blog post.

  • Get the grades at college

As I still don’t really know what I want to do when I’m older, I want to try my best at college and get all Distinctions in my coursework, so far I have managed to do this, but I want to ensure that I always try my best to allow me to take the next steps with my education or career.

  • Get a job

Now I have settled into college, and I know what the work load is like, I need to start looking for a job. I babysit and do extra jobs at weekends, but I think I need to have a part time weekend job.

  • To step out of my ‘outfit’ comfort zone

After talking to Martina, from awardrobeinprogress, I realised that many of the clothes I wear are boring-either white or black. Mainly because I don’t have the confidence to wear bright colours, so this year I want to experiment with my clothes.

  • Have fun

This is the most important resolution that I am making. It’s not because I wasn’t having fun in 2015, or I wasn’t happy, just looking back I didn’t enjoy the year as much as I should of.

My best memories of 2015.

So 2015 has been a whirlwind year for me, and I’ve decided to relive some of the happy memories with you through pictures

Enjoy:)

For the last few years my family and I have gone for a weeks holiday during the May bank holiday to sail with some of our best family friends. This year we sailed around the islands of Croatia. I love these holidays because It is a week full of laughter and fun. Although we did have one sail where the winds were 50 knots (about 55 mph winds) .. thought I was going to die.

When I was 6 years old, my Grandpa and Grandma moved to Spain, It’s difficult to see them often because it’s not that easy to fly/drive over there for a weekend. However this year for our summer holiday we went and stayed with them. It was so nice to have a catch up, learn about the new bugs that Grandpa had caught over the last few years and all the new plants Grandma had planted (I lost count after 50!)

We went for a day trip to Gibraltar, finally fulfilling my dream of actually meeting a monkey and now I know where the expression ‘Cheeky Monkey’ actually comes from!

London Anniversary games
London Anniversary Games
Going to the London Anniversary Games was the first Athletics event I had ever been too. I honestly felt like I wanted to cry every time someone won because I know how much effort you have to put in every training session just for once race. I have to admit this has been one of my favourite memories from 2015 and I will never forget it.

I will never forget prom. It was the last time I will see the majority of my friends from secondary school as we are all going our separate ways, but  even though it’s sad, I will always look back at prom and the last 5 years on all the laughs and memories that I have created with everyone and it will always make me smile.

 

Merry Christmas

Just a quick post to say Merry Christmas to all of you.

I hope tomorrow is filled with peace, joy, and a little bit of magic and hope for 2016.

I’d just thought I would say thank you for everyone who has taken the time over the past months to read/like/comment on my blog and I hope you have found it useful!

Wishing you all the best

See you in 2016!

The beauty Tag

I hope your all having a lovely holiday! Thank you for the support on my previous blog post.  I love doing tag posts, so when I came across this tag from ‘Make up by Kaila’ I knew I would just have to do it! She also mentions doing a ‘What I got for Christmas tag’ in which I may do the same!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?

My hair is naturally wavy but I’m lucky that I can curl or straighten my hair and it will stay in until I wash my hair.

Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?

I’ve never actually dyed my hair as I have natural blonde highlights, and plus I’m way too scared because what if it looks awful and I can’t get it back to the same colour it naturally is:(
3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?

I change both my hair and clothes every day; some days I throw my hair up into a bun and wear comfy clothes, others I might be wearing boots, jeans, and a crop top with my hair straight, or I might dress up girly and wear a dress on a night out with my hair curled and obviously when I’m training I just wear my training outfits with my hair up, so it depends on the day or situation.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?

Nails in the one thing I do every week or every other week without fail because I find it quite therapeutic and it makes me feel more girly.

5. How often do you change your nail polish?

Once a week or once every two weeks, It depends how chipped they are or if I get bored of the colour.
6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just in the summer?

I only paint my toes in summer because I always wear socks so I don’t see the point.
7. How long does it take for you to put on your makeup?

During the week, I only wear mascara occasionally because I don’t have enough time in the morning to get ready but also I’m in the gym or I’m running everyday so I don’t really see the point. However at the weekends, It can take me 20-30 Minutes depending on what look I want.

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?

Face then eyes..

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?

I collect it. My nan, bless her, always buys me/gives me make-up that she brought but doesn’t use or just thinks I might like it, and whenever I’m out I always end up buying at least 1 piece of make-up that I really don’t need!

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?

I have never worn false eyelashes; I tried to wear them for a Halloween party once and before I even left the house I had re-stuck them 5 times so in the end I just wore mascara. I think if I knew how to apply them I would wear them more often.

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?

No I don’t. I think it’s good to let your skin breathe and plus, like I said, I’m training everyday so it would all just come off.

12. Do you wear makeup when your home alone, or with family?

If I’m staying at home and I’m not going to see anyone other than my family then no, I don’t wear make-up.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?

Yes! I’d rather have 20 minutes more sleep before college!!

14. How many high-end products do you have?

My nan gives me quite a few higher end products, and I buy a couple of things, however I also love quite a few drugstore brands.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?

It depends, If I’m going on a night out I tend to plan my outfit as soon as I hear about the event. However normally I stick to my 3 favourite pair of jeans and just decided what top I want to wear when I get dressed.

16. How often do you change your handbag?

I have hardly any handbags:( I think 2016 is the year that I invest in some handbags!

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?

Weekdays- I get up at 6:30 and sleep at 8:30-9pm (Yes I am very tired and yes my friends like to call me a granny) However at weekends I tend to wake up at 7-7:30 and go to sleep between 10-11pm

18. How often or when do you workout?

Everyday except Mondays.

19. Left handed or right handed?

Right handed, although I did have my arm in a sling a few years ago so had to learn to write with my left, so I can sort of write with both.

20. How tall are you?

I’m 5’5.

21. Do you speak any foreign language?

I Took French for a GCSE but I managed to get a D.. so I didn’t even pass it..

22. How many pets do you have?

I have two cats, but fingers crossed my family in Australia have convinced my parents to re-home a dog in the new year!

23. How often are you on wordpress/tumblr?

I check wordpress/tumblr at least once a day, I’m always scrolling down my feed checking out posts and pictures.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?

All the time.

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?

Yeah, If someone writes a review on a product and I enjoyed reading it I tend to go into the shop to buy it and try it!

26. How did you come up with your Blog name?

I’m not actually to sure, parts of me wants to change it, but I have no idea what to change it too.

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?

Either my Iphone 5c or I borrow my Dad’s Nikon D300.

28. How often do you clean your house?

My Mum is the main cleaner around the house, however we all do jobs around the house to help.

29. What’s your favorite color?

Duck egg blue. But I’m loving black and white clothes at the minute.

30. Do you swear?

Since I have been at college I tend to swear more around my friends, but I hardly swear at home.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?

Well I’m writing this at 10pm so I think I’m just going to go straight to sleep!
