More Fiction ft A Very Extended Metaphor!

Hi Guys,

So this is my second non-fiction post! My first was in April and it's taken me this long to upload another. I've had every post scheduled up to this post but I really wanted to upload this so I'm doing it! I  hope you enjoy it; I'd love to hear your feedback in the comments! Here it goes...


Through the glass window it was all clear to everyone. We were the perfect group. The loud one, the funny one, the pretty one, the smart one and the mess. Don't look at the individuals, in fact, look at the collective. Look through the glass at the people who love each other, but don't forget the most important rule. Never break the glass.

Once it's shattered, you see what was behind it all along. Then you start to realise that it was never clear to begin with. From the start, it had been opaque. The image of he group was distorted: warped to our advantage. Looking in, you thought you saw the whole thing but we positioned ourselves. We were the queens, with each move perfectly calculated to take out the pawns. The game had always been black and white for us. The colour was on the outside.

We didn't want it in. The bright lights and the spectrum of shades just wasn't for us because we were conditioned against it. Having the colour meant letting in the pain. We were told not to invite it, just to stay in the shade. The chess board was where we were meant to be. It was where I was meant to be. At least, I thought so, until someone broke the window. 

Then I could step out. The sun hit my face; the colours flooded to me all at once; I was free. It was relieving. Until it wasn't. All at once, I became overwhelmed. I wanted the board back so I could calculate the play. I wanted the board back so I could contemplate other moves. I wanted the board back so I could have the other players. 

Out here, I was alone.

And that's it. I tried to create an extended metaphor, and ended up with two very messy ones. To be honest, I'm still quite proud of myself! Please don't forget to add me to your circles on Google +. Have a great week!

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.

Bags:
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…
