1 Year of Blogging - A letter to my future self!

Hi Guys,

Today is an exact year since my first post went up! I cannot believe how fast it has gone. I struggled to think of something that would encompass the whole of a year; I decided to write something for the next one! This letter is not to be opened until 3rd of October 2017...

Dear Runnerella,

How's you're year been? Did it go as quickly as last time? This year was insane! I swear it's only been a month since last October! Wait, no, make that two: one for Christmas and one for my birthday!

Have you joined any more social network? This year you got a blog, Google+ and an instagram- @runnerella_ - (#shameless self promo!) which you are very active on. How many times a week do you post? Up until March (I think!) you posted on Wednesday and Saturdays; now you're just onto Saturdays. 

The reason I stopped posting on Wednesday was because most of the posts that went up mid week were terrible! I didn't get enough time to properly think about them and it was so hard getting enough ideas to go twice a week! Uploading on just Saturday (although this is going up on a Monday!) means that I can focus on everything I upload and can write bits of it all through the week. What days did you upload on this year?

On to a more personal note, what's going on with your sister? Is she enjoying uni? Which one did she end up going to? This year has been a mix between wanting to get away from us or wanting to stay with us so the student debt doesn't pile up. Either way, I'll be taking over the big room! I guess that I've got a lot of work piled up now that I'll need more space for. Why are you reading this... Why aren't you doing homework?

I'm pretty good at studying, though. Apart from maths. We're only a few weeks through the school year and I'm not particularly liking it. Do I end up liking it, or does it stay this easy and boring? Also, how's philosophy and ethics? I get so stressed out during the lessons but I really enjoy the course. I'm excited to move on to the next section because it's Buddhism and (fun fact!) if I was any religion I'd want to be a Buddhist! 

Finally, have you told anyone else about your blog? So far my family and three friends know but that's it. I'm not embarrassed by this, I just don't want to go public with who I am! I started this blog anonymously and when I finish- whenever that may be- I hope I still can be. 

Maybe one day I'll tell all of my internet family who I am but for now I'll stay Runnerella.

Thank you all for reading. This year has been one of my favourites. Here's for the next one! I hope you are all having a fantastic day and please add me to your circles. I'm going to figure out a goal for the year so the more of you that follow me, the better my chances of reaching it will be! All of your support means the word.

Thanks for Reading

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
