What I Got for my Birthday...

Even though this is the classic blogger post, I'm pretty sure I've never writen anything like this before. I was actually pretty shocked when I got to this date in my blogging book and realised that I'd scheduled in a 'What I got for my birthday' because it's unlike me to think of something like that. However, I feel like some of you would actually like to read this, just to get some inspiration for your own birthday, or just random bits you'd like to treat yourself with...

-The biggest present that I got was my new phone! I've been a Samsung girl right from the start, however, I believe there are two types of android users: those who 100% adore their phone, and those who've always secretly wanted an iphone! Being the latter, I though that my birthday was the perfect occasion to change camps. My parents put toward and I used some savings to get this glorious girft! Mine's the gold 6s and I bought a glass screen protector just to be extra careful.…

Monthly Look Back...

This March, I have discovered that I like to be in control. It's not particularly a brand new realisation; I vaguely knew it before. Many a group project has suggested that I like to know what's going on just a little bit too much. For example, two years ago in English we  had to give a presentation in front of the class in groups that the teacher had picked. I was in a group with a girl I kind of knew and a boy that we will refer to as 'cod fish' (because he looks like a cod fish. Is that mean?) Cod fish was ridiculously annoying and kept deleting slides that were actually good. So I made back up copies of the original presentation and handed them in instead. That all sounds petty, but I assure you that it came from a place of wanting to know what was happening and not making a fool of myself in front of a very rude group of twelve year olds. Apparently, however, that fiasco wasn't enough for me to know that I like to be in control.

Red Carpet Reaction: Kid's Choice Awards...

This is the kind of post that I've wanted to write for the longest time! Fashion had interested me for a while (although looking at me, you probably couldn't tell!) so I think it's nice that I'm making this content to reflect it. Red carpet reaction posts are always some of my favourites to read, purely because I love finding out people's opinions. I thought that I would react to what everyone was wearing but do it with a friend, to add a twist to the classic idea. I managed to persuade Mel- my longtime best friend- to talk through some of our reactions together, so I hope you enjoy this!

And the heels because they're orange and you know I love orange.""Yeah, you do. She's turning sixteen on the 8th, you know?" "She d…

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
