April Favourites!

Hi Guys,

Today I'm back with a monthly favourites. But first, an apology! I'm so sorry that I didn't manage to post anything last week: school just got really on top of me. There has been so much revision to do, it's literally been killing me! Luckily- before I went insane!- I managed to get some me time and write this post. So without further ado, here's some of what I've been loving this month...

Hard Times by Paramore- I've just started getting into Paramore so their new releases are coming at a really good time. I started listening to them through Emma Blackery's top 20 Paramore songs playlist and just dived further into their work. This new single is the first one that had been released from their new album (called After Laughter ) and it really sets the tone. I'm so excited for a full album of their new sound because it will be great to see where they take it.

Young and Menace by Fall Out Boy- Again, a music favourite! FoB new album MANIA comes out on the 15th of Sepetember and I am counting down the days. I love all of their music and this single really solidified that for me. If the album is at the same standard- which it definitley will be!- then I really hope they tour near me. Seeing 'Sugar, We're Going Down' live would just be incredible.

Star Trek- A while back, I decided that I couldn't properly call myself a nerd if I hadn't seen Star Trek. I got the third one on DVD just after new year and it was so good! I've watched them in a bit of a stupid order now, though, which is a shame. I've got the second one left to watch which I am very excited for! I really want to get that done this weekend so I will definitely be Instagramming about that! 

Morphe 35O- This was a birthday gift but I forgot to mention it in my post! The 35O has really revolutionised the way I do my makeup. The shades are so complimentary to green eyes: they just look so great. I'm not the most skilled at makeup but even I can 
manage to make these colours work! Honestly, just all of the Morphe palletes are amazing.

Next Flowers Perfume- I can't remember if I've mentioned this in a previous post or not! It smells amazing! I've been putting it on before school and it honestly stays on all day. Perfume just isn't something I'm into but I get so many compliments about this that I can't stop. I would definitely recommend going into a store and picking one of these up.   

And that's it. Obviously there were more but I've got the worst memory. Keep checking up on my Insta for more posts through out the week, and make sure to follow it! Also, add me on Google + so I can reach 170 followers by the end of the month. Hope you had a great week!

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…
