October's Look Back

This month I learned how much pressure I could handle. It wasn't because I was put into a particularly intense situation, it was just from my own mind. All of the little things that I had bundled up ended up tying themselves into a knot. It was a knot so tight that I couldn't untangle it: even trying was too much. Eventually, I told other people about it, and they all helped to undo it. Obviously this is a metaphor, however October did feature an unpleasant untying experience for me!

It was the day before a dress rehearsal for 'The Crucible'. It's basically, if you haven't heard of it, a play about the Salem witch trails which meant we were all dressed in attire from the 19th century. That included what can best be described as a circular bib. It was horrendous. Before the show, my friend Eliza tied it onto me (you can see where this is going) and we started the performance. It got to the end, everyone was getting undressed, and we realised that my circular bib thing would not come off! After, seventeen minutes- SEVENTEEN MINUTES- and so many tears of laughter, we finally got it undone. 

I honestly thought that it was going to turn into The Breakfast Club. Eliza and I would be sat at the back of the changing room all night, confessing our deepest hopes and fears, whilst struggling to undo my *beautiful* costume. To be honest, if there's one thing I'll miss from this performance, it's the cast. At the start we were all just strangers trying to learn Arthur Miller; by the end we were friends, who were still trying to learn Arthur Miller! A particular moment that stands out to me was being sat behind a curtain with a lad I didn't know and just talking about life. Sharing things with a stranger is a weirdly nice feeling.

I'm not recommending spilling your guts to someone on the street but it's nice having someone impartial to talk to. The trust you can mutually put into someone shows a lot about two people. He's now one of my friends, and I think that's an amazing thing. Friendship is something that this month has really taught me the value of. Before now, obviously I had friends whom I love and cherish, but I feel like this month has created a lot of new relationships for me. I've rekindled some old friendships, which was surprisingly invigorating and strengthened some new ones, which I love dearly. It's great to have a support network behind you.

Sometimes you need someone to chat to when you're at a bus stop (too relatable, love a good day rider) and there's a person for that. Sometimes you need someones to blend your foundation past your neck and I promise there are girls that will do that! Sometimes you need someone to learn lines with, or put mini cheddars into your mouth when your hands are full, or tell you your nail colour is good. Sometimes you need people to help untie the knot growing in your mind and I promise, you will always have someone who can do that.

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…
