Why I Love Dance (yet another essay on it!)...

Personally, I believe that the best feeling on earth is walking into a room full of people and all of them cheering your name. Don't look back through my archives because I've probably claimed something else was better. No matter, I take it all back: I'd tale anything back if I could feel that great all the time. That is how amazing it is. Every Wednesday, and ever Saturday, I can feel that, because that's when I have dance. 

I'm not a late person, but somehow I always over run on the way to dance. Walking into the changing room with 45 seconds to spare and so many voices will light up. Normally, having more than one person trying to talk to me would stress me out but with them, I don't mind. Everything feels different with the girls at dance. You're forced to form relationships at a level of closeness that is so much higher than usual. Forced seems too aggressive a word. Obviously there's a few people I don't get on with but with the group I do, nothing is forced. Everything just slides into place.

It hasn't always been like this, though. I've been at my dance school for six years and only really settled into a friend group in January. The whole experience of dance is a lot better now. It feels especially good because I have people to share it with. To be honest, now I have people to share everything with. No one in my class actually foes to my school so some serious tea always gets spilt! That just brings us closer together because nothing in our lives is off limits.

Another thing that keeps us together is dress rehearsals. WE have a running joke about our friend, Ella, being the Mum of the group... she just is! Ella's actually a year younger than us, but looks after the other four of us so much. It's the caring and consideration that let's us feel so much love toward each other. Dress rehearsals are always when that care comes out! After one tap dance we were all so hot and sweaty that someone got out a powder, we all sat n the floor and shared it around. Other people putting makeup on your face is such a satisfyingly special feeling!

That, as well as so many other things, is why I love the girls in my class. Everything feels so special. The moments that are shared are so special and unique. We've been working on a routine that involves giant feathers (stay with me, the story gets good). Anyaise- my dance best friend- and I made a feather barrier in front of ourselves and the others. At first it was funny because of the weird intimacy of the situation but then we embraced the weird intimacy. For the first time, we said 'I love you' to each other.That's the kind of weird moments that dance lets us share.

And I can say, without a wall of feathers, that I love every moment.

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…
