guess who's back,,,

It honestly feels so weird to be back here but I've sure missed it! This post is just a big catch up really, and an explanation as to why I've been gone for so long. It is super chilled, and non-edited/pre-scripted or anything like that! In all honesty I'm watching The Apprentice: You're Fired and the guy who got fired is 21 and very very good looking so I apologise if this post makes no sense because I get distracted! The main culprit for such a big absence is sixth form. I started on the 5th September and I literally haven't stopped!
I take 3 subjects at Sixth Form, which are PE, Psychology and Maths, as well as something known as Pre-U, which is set up by Cambridge University. They are starting to get tough but I'm just trying to stay on top of it all, which I am doing pretty well through the use of many, many to do lists! But I'm happy to be taking a little break from it now that it's half term! I am going to try to get a couple of posts written an…

a week in oufits! - collab with bethxkate

I'm finally back after 2 weeks of not posting and I just want to apologise for this because ever since starting sixth form, it really has been non-stop! I also want to apologise for the quality of this post, in particular the photos because I really have struggled to take pictures this week, as I haven't really told many people at sixth form about my blog!
Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy this post as it is in collab with one of my lovely friends Beth from BethxKate! She is doing the same post as me, as we are both in sixth form but the difference is that she doesn't have a dress code whereas I do! I will leave the links to her blog and her post below and it would be amazing if you would check out her blog, as she has amazing content, and she is very talented!
My dress code as sixth form is just classed as 'smart', so you'll see over the week that I wear the same style of clothes. Some of the clothes, particularly trousers and shoes are the same, as I don't …

bts stationery haul!

Stationery is one of my favourite things and when back to school runs around, I am so excited to buy lots of stationery. I am going into Year 12 this year so will need a lot of stationery, but having said that, this haul isn't that big as I had some stationery that I received for my birthday that I hadn't used, and some that I didn't use at the end of year 11! Never the less I am so excited to show you some of the stationery items I have for the upcoming year!

The first things I got were from Wilko, which is basically where all of this is from! I bought 2 folders, one lever arch file and one ring-binder, and these are part of the 'Sassy' collection which I am IN LOVE with! I previously had two folders which I am going to continue to use next year, as subject folders. I think the ringbinder will be for my maths work and the ringbinder will be my day folder. I just love them!

The next things I have are some essentials- I have an A4 ruled refill pad, and I only have …

wearing mom jeans for the first time...

I have wanted a pair of Mom jeans for the longest time, and when I recently saw a pair in my local Primark in the sale, I couldn't resist! I wore them for the first time in Leeds last week and I was a little nervous I won't lie but after an hour or so I started to feel a lot more comfortable! So I thought I would get some pictures whilst walking around Trinity Kitchen, and write a little post because I love them sooo much!

My Mom jeans are from Primark as I said and they were FIVE POUNDS!!! They were reduced from thirteen pounds which again is not very expensive either but a bargain like that can not go unnoticed! I have never tried Primark's jeans but from wearing them a few times in the past week, I can say they are so comfortable! I love the massive back pockets and I just love the fit, although I do have to wear a belt as I have a small waist, but I think it adds to a look most of the time! I love the frayed bottoms and I just think they look really edgy. The colour i…

bullet journal set up- september

New year, new bullet journal. In all honesty I haven't used a bullet journal since the end of March, because I fell out of love with it a little, and I found that I wasn't using it as much as I should, and this is because of GCSEs and also the fact that my secondary school gave me a planner! 
So now that I am starting Sixth Form, I thought I would get a new bullet journal because my old one, as much as I loved it, it was really small! My new bullet journal is from Wilko and it was featured in my Back to School Stationery Haul (read here). I've decided to have a simple set up to my bullet journal now as I think it will look more clean and crisp! 

The first page of my bullet journal has this quote because this year is a new adventure, starting Sixth Form! I just thought it was a fitting way to start off my bullet journal!

The first 2 pages I just have a calendar of the month and my personal calendar which I will fill in before September begins! This will be useful to see wh…

ncs week 4 & what the experience has taught me...

One week on from NCS and it's fair to say I've missed it! The initial thought every day of thinking 'oh what are we doing with the team today' has still been in my mind for the past week and then I realise that we're finished. This post is just explaining the last week, what happened and what the experience has taught me over the past 4 weeks!

As mentioned in my Week 3 post (read here), Team 2 and I as well as Team 9 had the task of helping to renovate a local youth centre. Throughout the week we had the task of painting a fair few of the walls, the skirting boards and a massive panel! I think it went pretty well, even if it was 23 degrees and extremely hot! Both teams worked really well together and I was very happy to see the end result! I hope that the next team carried on our efforts and that the team that will be taking it over this week will finish off this project on a high!

And to top the week off, we went ice-skating which was a new experience for me, but…

year 11 advice: exams, stress and motivation!


room tour 2018

I'm back after NCS with a post I have been planning to do since I got my room re-decorated back in April but I haven't got round to it until now! I wouldn't say that my room is extremely aesthetic, but I try to make it! it is also very light which I like because it makes my room seem very fresh and airy.

As you walk into my room, there is 2 wire racks on the wall and these were from Wilko (£4 each), which I just stick important documents on (I actually don't have any right now!) and then the first bit of furniture you come across is a set of Malm drawers from Ikea. On the top of the cabinet, I have a set of 3 cacti from Ikea also, along with my Newton's cradle, a picture of me and my boyfriend at Prom in a floral frame, and a 'Dream' sign which I think is from Matalan, and I will try and link it! 

 Above the drawers there are 2 flower pictures, and we have had these for years so I don't know where they are from but I think they work so well with the r…

ncs week 3

Week 3 and we're finally back at home after 2 weeks of being away from home! This week we have been based at a local college, planning our social action projects that we will complete next week! I would have to say this week has been the most stressful with many ups and downs but as always we bonded as a team and managed to push through raising a significant amount of money at our fundraiser!


Our first meeting as a team for the week and it started on a high, learning that we could take the project we originally wanted, working on renovating a youth club alongside the team that originally had that project. I am looking forward to working with them, but I hope that we get on well as the teams have not really mixed as of yet! We began to plan our fundraiser also, before heading out into the town to play Grimopoly, Grimsby's version of Monopoly, which was a lot of fun! It was nice to talk to some members of the team I have spent less time with over the past 2 weeks, and al…
