My 2016 Favourites!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to my 2016 favourites! It's been 21 days since last year, but it feels like only yesterday that I was counting down the seconds. In the world of politics, celebrities and, well, pretty much everything last year wasn't too great! Personally, my 2016 was quite good! There were a lot of things I loved throughout the year but I've condensed this post into just nine . If you look back through the archives, most of these things will probably have been mentioned, but I thought I'd put them all together! After that very long intro, let's get started...

  • Cosmopolitan- Before this year, I would really only read Vogue. That was literally the snobbiest sentence ever but it's true! Then, in Mayish, I picked up Cosmopolitan and absolutely loved it! The articles are fantastic; they write for the average person; Inge the beauty editor is sooo nice (I met her at Clothes Show and it was fantastic!). Seriously, just pick up a copy!
  • Prison Break- Moving straight on to something completely different! This show is incredible! I only started watching because Wenworth Miller was in it but I'm so glad I did. Although it's extremely violent, there is still a plot which is great; in programmes like that it can sometimes get lost. Just like Cosmo, I cannot recommend this highly enough! 
  • Instagram- I started an Instagram account for my blog! I feel like I talk about this every week but go and follow me. I'm trying really hard this year... I have a theme and everything!
  • Nakd Bars- The Coco Nakd Bars are incredible! I never really though I'd like them but they are fantastic. They taste great but are actually healthy. It might be an acquired taste, to be honest. I think it's just normal chocolate but a couple of people have described it as tasting like grass! 
  • Nomination Bracelet- My Nomination Bracelet has really filled up this year. I have six charms and all of them have an individual meaning. That is one of the main reasons I like it: it is so personal! Nobody's bracelet is the same which gives them a really unique twist. I hope that in 2017 I'll be able to fill mine.
  • OGX Argan Oil- I have super curly hair and this has helped to make it 10000 times less frizzy. I recently spoke about this in a post, so I'll link that. If you don't have enough time to read it, the gist was: it's AMAZING!
  • Believers Never Die by Fall Out Boy- Possibly my favourite album ever. I was never into Fall Out Boy until early spring. I listened to this album and fell in love with their sound. At the time the album came out, this music was revolutionary and it's changed my whole opinion on pop/rock. My favourite song in this album is 'What a Catch, Donnie' but my favourite FOB song ever is 'Uma Thurman'.
  • The Pretty Little Liars Book Series- The only reason I bought these books is because I didn't have Netflix and wanted to know what all of the hype was about. I found out through this series! They are well written, hilarious and just an easy read. I actually watched the first couple of episodes of PLL and couldn't get into it. Never mind, I've always got the other 3 book arcs to read!
  • Converse- Words cannot do justice to how much I love these shoes. I've gone through about 3 pairs and loved every single one. I'm currently obsessed with the rose gold ones I got for my birthday. They are soooo pretty! And super comfortable. Again, go and get yourself a pair!
So that is the end! Congratulations, if you reached this point! That took some commitment. If you got here leave a comment and don't forget to add me to your circles on Google +. With that said, have a great day and come back next week if you'd like to read more!

Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

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…
