Crazy cat lady or crazy fox lady?

It dawned on me today that my mum is truly a crazy cat lady. (I mean the signs have always been there, 6 cats, the endless supply of treats, the fact she will go out of her way to make them comfortable) However she doesn't just love cats she seems to have developed a love for two foxes that visit our house every single day! The foxes alternate their visits. They either come together or once at a mum seems to think its her duty to go out especially to  buy food for these foxes. I mean they are cute! But its getting kinda obsessive.
With out doubt every single day they stroll down our path and just sit outside our house, waiting for my mum to come along and feed them. I can't deny that they are adorable! Because they truly are, the cats seem to not be fazed by them either. Which just adds more bonus's on the list for my mum.

Ive heard a lot of negative comments about foxes and that you shouldn't feed them because they are vicious. Despite the comments they have not shown any signs of adverse behaviour. Which makes me wonder why some act out and others are just well normal. Ive also been reading a lot of things about David Cameron wanting to revoke the ban on fox hunting..which makes me sad! The thought of men going out with the intentions to kill foxes is an awful picture. I know its just a small thing to some people but the fact the human race has made an impact regarding the fight to stop animal cruelty and now they just want to take ten steps back! Which is annoying.. I just feel that its unnecessary to go out and kill these animals when the majority of them don't do anything bad to anyone. 

Everyone has their own opinions on matters such as these and someone will always disagree with other individuals, so id love to hear your views on fox hunting! You can reach me on my social media sites below:

Box swap with Bex!

A while ago I was involved in a box swap with a youtuber called Bex! I received the package a long time ago.. although I have been extremely busy and I was unable to take time out to write this post. Im sorry for the long amount of time its taken me to get this blog post up! 

We both agreed on a maximum amount of money we could both spend, we also decided that we would get to know each others likes and dislikes by going through each others sites. After literally stalking Bex's  sites for a few days I thought I was ready to start buying products I thought she'd like. 

When I received my package I was still finishing my exams and was on a revision I was very excited when I answered the door and saw I had received my swap already. 
The first thing I noticed was the beautiful pink tissue paper it was wrapped in! It was adorable. Opening the package I realised that the gifts were wrapped in the same tissue paper. It was all very fancy and cute. 

Baking products: 

As you all know I love baking..Im always looking for new things to add to my collection. So when I opened these I was ecstatic. 

-Cupcake cases
This are different to the normal plain cases I usually buy. I love the colours and the quirky patterns.

- Tea cupcake silicon cases
Ive used silicon cases before and found they are so effective and don't waste paper cases. Ive seen this sort of cases on Pinterest before and I could never find any! I was very very happy to say the least. The box contains two silicon tea cups and two plastic dishes to set the tea cup on. I love them already and I can't wait to try them out. 

- Cupcake boxes
I always find single cupcake cases very handy to have around incase I may need them. Guess what, ive already used 3!

- Silicone chocolate mould
Ive never used silicone moulds before, although I'm sure they are handy when making decoration for baked goods. They aren't too big either so I will definitely get some use out of this.

- Egg timer
You basically put it in the saucepan with your egg and it will change colour and you just follow the instructions to how you like you egg. I don't tend to cook savoury foods because I'm pretty useless at cooking..however I will get some use out of this in the future.

Beauty products:

-Exfoliating gloves
Ive already used the gloves with my soap and glory 'smoothie star breakfast scrub' and I honestly can't get enough of them.

- Nivea lip balm
I always carry a lip balm around with me and I go through lip balms like theres no tomorrow, so having and extra one lying around is very handy.

- Fake eye lashes
I don't wear makeup/lashes but I do attend different events/parties, so I am definitely going to use these very soon. 

- Face mask
I really enjoy using face masks they make my skin so smooth and fresh. I've used this specific mask before and I've always been left with excellent results. 

- Lush sweetie pie shower jelly
If you know me you will know my love for all things lush.. this is by far one of my top favourite products from lush! It smells amazing and a little goes a long way. Plus you can never have enough shower jellies.

- Rimmel london nail varnish
I paint my nails a lot although my normal shades are brighter! So I can't wait to try this shade out.


- Yankee candle fruity melon
I love yankee candles a lot! Ive smelt this scent before although I always hesitate when going to buy it. As I feel it isn't strong enough. Although I really like it! The scent gets more distinct when burning it.

- Yankee candle cherry vanilla
Ive had a full size version of this scent before and it just smells divine.

- Yankee candle vanilla frosting 
This tops all of the scents I've ever had before, I love it so much! Ive nearly burnt the whole candle which makes me sad..So I'm going to have to go out to purchase  it very soon. 

I can't thank you enough for everything you brought me! I love every single item. I really appreciate you taking time out to do this box swap with me. 
I really enjoyed picking out all your items and I hope you love them all. 

I highly recommend you all going over to Bex's youtube channel and twitter page! 
She's such a lovely person and makes the best youtube videos. Her channel is pretty great. 

Bye for now..J x

Party planning

Incase you didn't know I'm the maid of honour for my brothers wedding. And I've been enlisted to plan the hen do! Which is super cool. Im so excited! But its soooo hard thinking about appropriate activities for everyone. You have to think about everyone and every little detail.  However I have so many great ideas.            

Growing up I've always been interested in events and this is probably the best thing for me. Although I don't think ill take event planning up as a profession, its so stressful!! 
Making sure everyone can make the chosen date, supplying the right type of food, making sure the venue is right, ensuring it will be a memorable night. Making sure I have all these little details in place to make up the night is exciting though. I can't wait!! Eeek.

But the hardest part of planning this event is not telling the bride! Although its probably a good choice so it  can all be a surprise to her. I will not be telling her a thing, which is probably irritating her!! Hahah.

Now I've finished school I can put the majority of  my attention/time into making sure this party runs smoothly and efficiently! 

Today we spent the morning writing out the invitations for the wedding with her grandad..and we ate lunch and cake in the conservatory which was so cute! I can't believe its all finally coming together.

Leaving school and moving on..

Today was the end of my schooling journey.  Which seems so surreal. I don't know whether to be sad or jump with joy..the fact school has now come to an end means I'm finally out in the big wide world. Which is daunting, I honestly don't know where the time went. It only seems like yesterday is my first day of year 7 and I was feeling apprehensive. 
The past 5 years have been a whirl wind of lots of different aspects that make up your school  friends,teachers,arguments,dramas. So much has happened during these 5 years, that have helped me become the person I am today. Ive learnt a lot from school..not only educational facts but also life lessons. It seems so strange that 5 years of work can come to down to a few exams! I will never agree with the educational system but yano, I suppose it works. 

Ive had  some good times but also bad and I honestly wouldn't change it for the world. Ive bonded with some amazing people and Im so glad I did. Although I feel sorry for all the people that had to tolerate me day in and day out! Haha. Im thankful to everyone who put up with me, helped me through bad times and helped me excel in school. 

I think the only reason I'm sad is because I'm leaving the little bubble I've been in, I've been protected if you will and the fact now I've got to leave is scary.  Also all the people, Ive spent most of my teenage  life with my peers and teachers and for it all to abruptly end is weird.  However I will not dwell on the past and I will not wish I did anything differently because its all part of the experience and growing up! Over all I'm rather happy! Im especially excited about all the bigger and better things that will come up in the future!

Not feeling good about myself..

The majority of us all feel crappy about ourselves from time to time.. Myself included. Whether it's your appearance, people around you, social media or just events that have occurred we have all gone through that phase that we feel useless, unworthy, flawed..and I don't think it's a bad thing, I just think it shows we care? Right?

Throughout my life I've spent the majority it feeling crappy about myself...feeling negative about my appearance, what I wear,  whether I'm good enough.. I think a lot of things have contributed to these feelings. Like social media, celebrities, people around me. I've realised all the decisions and things I've done are to fit in and feel accepted. Although the truth is i've never actually felt accepted, not only in myself but also with people around me. I think I will always feel like this until I become more confident and happy. Until then I will continue to try and help myself snap out of this frame of mind. Not feeling happy about myself is just creating a bigger negative image in my will also block me from doing things in the future. Which will probably make me feel even worse.. not only will I be feeling shitty I'll also be thinking what if..

I've always been convinced mentally and emotionally that this pain will continue until I die to be honest. I don't blame anyone for these feelings. Some people blame their parents, or how they've been treated previously. Although I've realised I have no one to blame but myself.

So I've decided I'm going to help overcome and cancel out these feelings by doing several different things..
Firstly stop caring what other people have to say! It's definitely easier said than done..I'm a sensitive person and what people say about me affects me emotionally. But I've decided to block it out and carry on with my life. 
Secondly do what makes me happy! I can't feel good about myself If I carry on doing things I don't want to do..
Thirdly I'm going to stop looking at other people wishing I had their life. I've realised I have a good life and I should stop wanting what others have and just make a life for myself. 
Additionally I'm going to accept who I am and reflect on what I've accomplished. I've accomplished a large amount of things during my life and I should be proud of all of them! 

This is a personal post.. And I hope if you are feeling the same way you should follow the steps I will be to overcoming them. It will make you feel a lot better doing so. Because your amazing and don't let anyone tell you any different.
