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 planning..so 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.
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 life..like 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!
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 head..it 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.
Recently I've been loving all kinds of different accessories! I thought id share with you all what accessories id love to own.
1: Aldo Paris clutch- Asos: Okay, so I was scrolling through asos and I came across this clutch! I literally fell in love with it there and then. Mostly because its Parisian, but I just also love its shape and its so unique. Ive never seen a clutch like this before. Which is so appealing to me. I love the colours too, they are so warm and inviting.
2: Reins leather purse- Asos: This purse is so different to what I normally go for..my normal purses are big and elaborate. Although this is just so simply and I really like it! What screams buy me with this purse is the little triangle detail. Its adorable! Its so simple but I just love it.
3: Heat necklace- Forever 21: I never really wear necklaces, although when I do they are sparkly and big. I really love this necklace. Its got the sparkle factor and its a heart. At the moment I'm just loving simple things! Haha.
4: Is it Friday yet? phone case: This is literally my whole process Monday to Thursday. I love weekends. I also like to change my mobiles fashion accessory frequently. So I will most probably be purchasing this in the future.
5: Faux stone cuff- Forever 21: I don't tend to wear any bracelets/cuffs. Just my pandora bracelet. And Id really like to change that. I love the detailing of this cuff, the small band and the squared stone. I especially love the colour..
6: Black cut out lace up platform heels- Newlook: I really love these heels. The way they are cut, the fact you have to lace them up! Its just so different to normal slip on heels.
7: Giraffe charm necklace- Forever 21: This necklace is super cute! I just love it! I love how theres two little giraffes connected to each other.
8: Black satchel bag- Michael kors: I think every girl dreams of owning there own Michael Kors bag some time or another. Ive been dreaming of owning one for years and years. Firstly they are gorgeous, secondly have you seen the quality! They are just the perfect bag. And I am in desperate need of one!
9: Crown ring- Pandora: The girls brought me the bracelet, so now Id really like a ring to add to the collection. I really like this one. Its so cute and I really like the little rhinestone in the middle of the crown. And as I can't own a real crown this ring is the next best thing right?
10: Sunglasses- Raybans: Summers approaching and I've been looking at a lot of different sunglasses..although I decided id like to buy sunglasses I might as well go higher end and buy some that will actually work and last. Im not very adventurous when it comes to sunglasses, so standard black ones are the ones for me!
This is the most exciting post EVER. Yesterday I received the most amazing package. A company called Eat your photo had sent me 12 cupcakes. I love cupcakes so you could probably imagine my delight. I opted for the chocolate cupcakes with an Eiffel tower photo on the top and I am so glad I did they are delicious. The cupcakes were boxed perfectly, none of the cupcakes were damaged during transit either. So I was very impressed. When they came to my front door and I had to sign for them I squealed in delight I was so excited. They also didn't take long to come so they are great for occasions.
The first thing I noticed whilst inspecting the yummy treats was the quality of the image. It's amazing! It's so clear, the colours are all right and It's not blurred like other edible photos I've had before. Which was a definetely a plus.
I chose the Eiffel tower picture however you can choose whatever photo you'd like.
When I look for cupcakes I like to have cupcakes that separates from the case easily, which they did! I was so surprised. The cupcakes are also moist and full of flavour. Which I didn't expect at all. The cupcakes were completely different to what I expected. (which is a good thing!) When trying them I was rather hesitant, although I was definitely pleasantly surprised with how good the product actually is! They taste amazing.. I honestly can't describe how tasty they actually are, you'll just have to go buy some and find out for yourself!
I think I'd go far to say they are probably one of the best cupcakes I've tried!
Id highly recommend you going to purchase these right now! They are so yummy you can't not!!
You can visit there website for more details.
For 12 cupcakes It's only £20! (I know I know its so great value for money). Or you can buy more/less.
Overall I'm very impressed with these cupcakes. They are everything you want In a cupcake!
