Horror Films

Hello friends!

Long time no post! I am so bad with this blogging malarky it's unreal. I apologise for anyone who is expecting regular posts, you're not going to get them here!

So me and my sister have made a deal - if I watch 12 horror films with her during October she will take off some of the money that I owe her. Being someone with no money, I can't really turn it down. I have never been into horror films, I watched 'Haunting in Connecticut' once and that terrified me. But as I'm hoping to be a film student next year, I need to get on it a little bit more.

We started with Nightmare on Elm Street, which wasn't scary at all. Plus, it's got Johnny Depp in it, and we all know how much I adore Johnny. Then we watched Scream, that also wasn't scary at all but I think it's because I had watched Scary Movie before and I kept remembering scenes in that and just laughing. The most recent one we have watched was the Evil Dead. I was the most terrified about watching this one because I heard that it was really really scary, but after watching it I was fine. I was a little bit on edge, but it honestly wasn't that bad. 

There are still loads of films left on the list, the next one that I am really petrified about is 'Grave Encounters'. My sister told me that when she watched it she was scared for months. Can't wait for that..........

Thank you for reading, I will keep you all updated on how this horror movie-ing is going. I can't wait until it's over! 

Until next time.

Summer in the City

Hello friends!

I have FINALLY got around to writing this post, I'm not sure what took me so long to be honest! 

On the 17th and 18th August, I went to Summer in the City. Many of you have probably heard about it - it's a youtube gathering/convention that took place in Alexandra Palace in London. Pretty much a British, (much) smaller version of Vidcon. It was absolutely fantastic, despite being pooed on by a pigeon on the way up to London!

I met so many people (most of them being youtubers) and attended some really helpful panels with people such as Tomska and Jacksgap. Here's some of the pictures from the whole weekend!

The lovely Cal and his pal (Luke). They were walking around with the coolest t-shirts, so I had to ask who they were. 


Selfies with Chai (MyNamesChai)

Emma Pickles! She told me flash was her worst enemy, but I think she still looks incredible!

Joe (ThatcherJoe) and Jim (JimChapman)! Can you tell from the photo in the bottom left that I didn't realise Jim was going to spam my phone with photos of us!?

Oh my goodness graci-anya-ous! Love Joey Graceffa!

Oli White! He was cute!

Tanya Burr *falls on ground and cries happy tears*. She was so sweet!

Fab-u-lous *z-snap*. Can we take a moment to appreciate this?

I wasn't going to put this on, but I don't even care! Me and Hannah being special...

More selfies!

Me and Amy finally met!

EXTREME close up.......

This was be before it even began, look at the happy face.

It was such an amazing weekend, and already I can't wait for next year. I feel so lucky to have met all the people I did meet, but there were a few I would have loved to have met that I probably could have done with my friends, Hannah and Aimee, such as Alfie and Marcus and Troye Sivan. As well as all of this, I high-fived Chris Kendall (Crabstickz) which is one thing I will continue to boast about for the rest of my life. 

Anyways, that's all! I hope you enjoyed reading this post, and I hope that it has made you really want to come along next year. Just looking over these photos makes me excited for next year! 

Until next time...

My Bucketlist!

Hello friends!

Time to update my bucketlist! Obviously, this is only the second post I have done on this! I keep meaning to ask my sister how to add another tab onto my blog to keep track with all the things that I end up putting on my bucketlist as she's the one who is good with all this stuff, but I keep forgetting!

So, what do I want to put on my bucketlist today? I have a few more to add today...

I'm not the kind of person to be completely depressed about my weight and let it get me down. However, every time I go on tumblr I find a picture of a really slim girl who looks amazing, and I want to be like that. Let's be honest, I'm not ever going to be stick thin, but I'd like to be a little thinner than I am now. 

This has been at the top of my 'want to do' list for such a long time. I have so many friends that have done it and I envy them. I love elephants, and riding one would be such an amazing thing to do!

This is quite similar to the riding an elephant one, but I really want to go on a safari in Africa. African wildlife amazes me, and I'd love to go and see everything in it's natural habitat! That's most definitely something I plan to do in the future!

Thanks for reading, it's not a very long post, I know, but it's just an update really. Hope you enjoy reading these posts, and I have so many things to add in the future!

Until next time...

Hello friends!

Recently, I have been doing a little promotion mainly on twitter for a new company - Bobbl. Bobbl are a range of interchangeable hats and Bobbls, and ever since I heard about the idea I have loved it. I received my hat just hours ago and I haven't taken it off! The Bobbls are made with racoon fur which is so SO soft, and come in five colours - natural, teal, yellow, purple and pink. The hats are a wool and acrylic mix (50/50) and also come in five colours - green, cream, grey, maroon and black.

And yes, it is interchangeable. So you can mix and match any colour hat with any colour Bobbl depending on your oufit - there is a popper on the top which is more than easy enough to unpop. Furthermore, each Bobbl is handmade, meaning that the size and shape is unique. I absolutely love the idea, and I plan to buy some more Bobbls so I can change it around a bit! Who doesn't love the idea of interchangeable Bobbls!?!?! Like their facebook page ( and have a look at the different combinations you can get! 

Like I said, since I received mine (it's been a matter of hours) I haven't taken it off my head, it's so comfortable to wear. I liked the cream hat and teal Bobbl, and the colour of the teal is so pretty.

It's more than perfect for when it comes round to the autumn/winter months, it's so snuggly and warm. And you can change it to go with ANY outfit. 

The retail price for a hat and a Bobbl of your choice is £40.00, but if you want to buy a Bobbl/hat separately they are £20.00 each. I really recommend Bobbl hats, they're just so cute! Plus, they're not just for ladies - men can also wear them! 

Plus, there is a something special coming up the beginning of September, so go register your email addresses at! Follow their twitter, also, for updates - @BobblUK

Until next time...

August Wishlist!

Hello Friends! 

Little wishlist for you today!

I love all these items - obviously or they wouldn't be on my wishlist! Number one is a iPhone case, and the print is loads of little cats! I love cats so much, and I thought this was a perfect fit for me. It's so cute, I love it! Number 2 is a Nikon Coolpix L810. I have been wanting a decent camera for ages because I want to start making youtube videos, and because I can't afford a really expensive one that all the big youtubers use *sob*. Also, the picture quality is really good which is always something I look for when buying cameras... ;) Number 3 is a flower crown. I have seen so many pictures of people wearing a flower crown and they pull it off so well, I want to see whether it would suit me or not. The rest of the items are all 'bedroomy' things! I have been on tumblr recently and all I see is really cute bedrooms, and it's inspired me to get my own cute bedroom at some point in the near future. So I started off with a really nice dressing table and mirror (number 4). Now obviously I'm not going to buy this anytime soon, but I think it's so girly and cute! The cushion (number 5) and storage boxes (6) would look so good in the bedroom I have in my mind, I just hope that one day I have the chance to make a bedroom like this! Last, but by far my favourite and cheapest thing on the list is the fairy lights - a vital component to any girly bedroom. I currently don't have any on my bedroom, therefore they have been put on my wishlist. I think a room looks so much more adorable with the fairy lights on instead of the main light, and these ones are perfect because they're little flowers. I plan on buying this very soon! 

To give you an idea of the kind of bedroom I have in mind, here's some pictures! 

Imagine a mixture of those two bedrooms... how perfect is that!? Tumblr is such a good place to get inspiration for things to decorate your bedroom. For example, hanging up a bit of string in your room and pegging photos onto it. I know it's such an obvious thing to do, but I didn't think of it until I saw it in tumblr! So yeah, that's my plans for when I move out and I have my own bedroom! 

I hope you enjoyed reading and much as I enjoyed looking for things to put in my 'dream' bedroom! I'm going to do a wishlist every month from now on, which I really look forward to doing! Until next time...

My Bucket List!

Hello friends!

I have been reading some bucketlists recently, and it's really inspired me to do my own. I have always been meaning to make one but I have never actually got round to doing it, but now I have been looking at some I have really wanted to do one. So I thought as a new segment to my blog, every so often I could add something whacky (or maybe not so whacky) to my bucketlist. Every time I complete one thing, big or small, I'll write a little post about how it went etc...

So what's my first thing on my bucketlist. It's a very, VERY optimistic thing to aim to do, but I think it would be so cool. 

I think anyone would agree with me that meeting Johnny Depp would be THE coolest thing ever. Anyone who knows me could tell you how much I go on about Johnny Depp. He is, in my eyes, the most amazing man on this planet and god do I love him. Now, I know that it's such a big thing to start with, and the likelihood is that this will never happen, but let's stay positive. Go big or go home! Plus, I'm not too bad at meeting celebrities, so it's not completely out of question... I hope. If the day ever comes, it will most definitely, without a doubt, be one of the best days of my life.

As this is my first post of my bucketlist, I'm going to add two things! 

This is something that I think would be so cool - climbing a mountain. I think it would better to fly out to somewhere different to the UK, so that would be ideal, but if I end up climbing Mount Snowdon then so be it - it's still a mountain. Getting to the top would be such an achievement! One day!

Well, that concludes my bucket list post for today! Hope you enjoyed reading, and I hope you're as excited as I am to see what I put on my list! I'm looking up things as I go, so I don't actually have many more ideas after these two... oops! Ah well! Until next time...

Hello friends!

Well, I've had a very boring start to the summer holidays! I have done next to nothing in the last week, other than finally finishing Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It's taken me ages to finish the book, but I finally did it. I watched the film only minutes after closing the book and I was impressed with that as well. However, the third film still stands as my favourite. I haven't seen the last three though! I also went bowling yesterday with one of my school friends, my brother and my sister. I managed to score one strike in two games, pro-bowler right here! I never realised how bad I actually was...

So today I went down to my Nan's to do some baking. I cheated a little bit, as in I bought packet stuff and I just had to add a few little things. I made a vanilla cheesecake with strawberry and chocolate on the top, it turned out really nice actually. However, I used the wrong tin size, therefore it was really thin... It still tasted delicious!


I didn't get a picture of it out of the tin, but it was only like 1cm thick! I think with a tin this size I should probably use two mixes. Or just get a smaller tin! 

The brownies came out really well! Last time I used one of these mix things it didn't work at all, I'm not sure what I did wrong. However this time they are delicious. They're perfectly gooey in the middle and crispy on the outside. We also added cherries.. mmm! 

I'm no expert, but the mixes were actually really good, and really cheap. I'd recommend them to anyone who likes to bake occasionally, or needs them for a party or for friends or something. Really impressed, especially with the brownies! 

Other than baking, I took a few pictures of my nan's new puppy. Well, I say 'new', nan has had her for a good few months now. Her name is Pippa, and she's the cutest little lady I've ever seen! Here she is!

Just after a little groom!

Pippa selfies!

I think she wanted my chocolate...

That was a bit of a jumbled up post, one minute I was talking about Harry Potter, then baking, then dogs! Ah well, that's just my last week summed up in one post! Hope you enjoyed reading! 

What's your favourite thing to bake?

Losing Weight...

Howdy friends! 

Now, it's been a while since I've been frequent with my posting, but it's summer now meaning I have all the time in the world to find things to blog about! YIPEE! I have a long list of things I can blog about over the summer, so expect more posts from now on. Another thing, other than time, that's been preventing me from blogging is that I have another blog for my media coursework for my A-Levels, and I've been focusing on doing that more. Therefore, I write a post on there then get to writing one on here and I can't think of how to start anything. But now I have a long break with hardly any work to do on there, so I can work on this blog more! YAY! 

So, from the title you can tell what this is about. I have been trying to lose weight for such a long time, and any time I try I give up after a couple of days. I just like food way too much! However, I was searching through the App Store on my iPhone and came across one of the best apps I have ever seen. I have tried weight loss apps before and they have been useless as all they tell me is how to do exercises I don't have the time to do. However, this one is brilliant. It's called 'myfitnesspal', and basically all you do is say how much weight you want to lose, how much you weigh now, and you input what you eat and it tells you how many calories you should be eating a day/how many calories you have left to get to your desired weight. I have such a good feeling about this diet this time, really hoping I can lose some weight! 

It has such a wide range of foods listed, and if the food you've had isn't on there you can add it yourself. It also has a lot of exercises from 'mowing the lawn' to a full on run. I have been going cycling, and even 25 minutes of that burns quite a lot of calories. I tend to go in the morning/evening when it's not too hot, if I was to go when it's its hottest I think I'd die on the spot from heat exhaustion.

So yeah, I really do recommend this app for those trying to loose weight. It takes no time at all the fill in your calories, and it tracks your progress over time. Plus, it's free!

Hey there friends!

What a long while it's been since I last wrote a blog post! I don't even have the excuse that I have had loads of school work, because I haven't had that much! I just haven't got around to writing anything... sorry! 

So what have I been doing since my last post? I went all the way to Dale in South Wales for a Biology Field Trip. 'Biology Field Trip' makes it sound so boring, and I thought it was going to be horrible but I actually had so much fun! The weather was brilliant all week, and the place we stayed was gorgeous. I learned all about snails and other crustaceans that live down there and I ended up doing my whole coursework investigation on beadlet anemones. I now know more about beadlet anemones than I know about Biology itself! Here's a few snaps I took! 

Back onto what the post is about, GRADUATION! No, not mine, my sisters! She's graduating from university on Friday, so I thought I'd use this opportunity to buy some more clothes! I have been looking out for something for a long while now, and I have had my eye on a few dresses. But when I went to town on Saturday, I went in a completely different direction with what I wanted to buy! I went into New Look (as you may know by now New Look is the only place I shop for clothes), and had a good look around. In the end, I went for a pink maxi skirt, a lacy, cream top and some accessories to go with it!

Excuse the quality of the photos, the lighting is rubbish in my bedroom! Putting that aside, I love this outfit. I didn't think I was going to suit a maxi skirt, but as soon as I tried it on I fell in love with it. The pink one wasn't my first choice, there was two blue ones that I wanted - a turquoisey-blue and a dark blue, but they didn't have my size *sad face*. However, the pink one still looks really nice. Plus it was only £14.99 - bargain! When I picked the top up, I was a bit doubtful about what it would look like on me, seeing as it's a crop top - I don't want all my flabby bits on show! However, with the maxi skirt you don't see any flabby bits, and the colours go so nicely together! The top came in at £12.99, another bargain (this is why I love New Look). The shoes I already had in the wardrobe, from a christmas meal I bought them for. They're also from New Look, but I'm not sure how much they were... The jewelry is quite simple (it doesn't look it, but it is). The spikey necklace is something I've wanted for ages, and I thought that it would look nice with the skirt and top so I went ahead and bought it, AND the matching earrings - I regret nothing! 

Well there you go! I can't wait to go down to Aberystwyth and have a short little holiday away from school and stuff, exciting! I better go and finish me some Biology Coursework! Thankyou for reading, and let me know what you think, or whether you've got something nice and exciting coming up soon! Until next time...
