Stop this train I want to get off and go home again!

Stop this train by John Mayer is one of my favourite songs right now because it literally describes exactly how i feel. I've never really been someone who likes change although I've always accepted that it is inevitable however this year so much has changed that I'm back to wishing that it wouldn't. First of all I'm still amazed that it's September like when the fuck did that happen?! seriously i swear it was Christmas just last month. The change that is the biggest is definitely that I've started sixth form this year, it may be a part of my school however the change is still huge, it means less subjects, new people, new teachers, more responsibility and having to actually work hard and think about the future. i say work hard as I luckily am one of those people who sort of just sailed through school and now I am in sixth form I actually have to work so much harder to do well ( and i should really be writing a sociology essay rather than this) but although this is a huge change and it scares me quite a lot i really am looking forward to the rest of this year and all the amazing things I'm going to get to do.

August favourites!

I've done this once before but then for some reason i never carried on doing it so i decided today as August is unfortunately (or fortunately depending on which way you look at it) coming to an end that i would post my august favourites so here it is:
My first favourite is definitely maybelline's baby lips, these came out in America ages ago and i had been hearing loads about them so when they finally came out here in the UK i knew i had to try one so me and my friends went to boots and when we finally found them we were so happy that there was 3 left, enough for each of us to get one, the first one i got was the mint fresh one and since then i have picked up the pink punch and cherry me ones as well because i love them so much!
My next favourite is my Soap & glory smoothie star body milk which was great for after i had been on holiday and my skin was starting to peel, I've also been loving my soap & glory sugar crush body wash which i have just bought my third bottle of as it smells amazing!
my next favourite isn't beauty related it is actually a film (i might actually have a film of the month each month) it is monsters inc/university, i have been obsessed with anything monsters inc related which is driving my mam a bit mad i even have monsters inc fluffy socks which i am in love with!  Another film i loved this month is The conjuring although it did terrify me i guess that makes it a good film.
For my favourite TV shows this month i couldn't pick between these two so I'll have to say Teen wolf and Supernatural as i have been obsessed with them both.
Finally my favourite song of the month for August has too be all the little lights by passenger as it is such a beautiful song.

My escape!

I've been thinking about making this post for a long time but well the topic of the post itself pretty much explains why i never got round to it, I've been watching TV shows. I love watching TV (technically i watch on my laptop but you get what i mean) i don't really know why i guess i just love getting to fall in love (or hate) with the characters and getting to see them grow, of course i love the plot as well but i like to go into the characters world to get away from my own in a way. i have this thing where i either really love something or really hate it so when i love something i sort of become addicted to it, there's two TV shows i want to talk about in particular but i figure i might as well tell which shows i watch as well. 
so here's a list of shows i watch: One tree hill, Friends, Gossip girl, Pretty little liars, Twisted, The fosters, The big bang theory,How i met your mother, The o.c, 90210, Teen wolf, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, Awkward and Suburgatory, Im sure there's more but i can't for the life of me think of what they are. 

I've spoke about One tree hill and Friends on this blog in the past and i still stand by that they are two of my favourite shows and i can and have watched them over and over again but i've also came to love criminal minds i only started watching it at the beginning of this year after hearing so much about it from one of my friends and i'm so glad i did because it allowed me to build on something i love which is psychology and more specifically criminal psychology. (it also introduced me to Matthew Gray Gubler which y'know i'm not complaining about).



This is such a long overdue post and i don't really know why i never got round to posting anything when i got back from portugal but i decided why not do it now. On the 12th of July my parents and I went on holiday to Portugal, this holiday was also long overdue as we actually planned to go last year but ended up not being able to. We stayed in a hotel in Albufeira which was in a lovely location with an amazing view over the cliff edge and a beautiful beach just a few minutes walk from our room it was amazing to finally have a holiday after doing all my exams this year and it was an amazing holiday, i'm already looking forward to the next one!

music always helps no matter what you're going through

i fell in love with music, ever since i can remember I've had songs that i loved whether that song was spirit in the sky by Gareth gates, five colours in her hair by mcfly or baby one more time by Britney Spears there was always one song that i loved and many of them i still do love although obviously the songs i fall in love with have changed a great deal from when i was just a kid but the point is i still have songs that i love.
I'm going to take another quote from Peyton sawyer it's a bit of a long one but it's true and it gets across my point pretty well so here it is "You know I've got this theory, there are two kinds of people in the world. There are lyric people and music people. You know, the lyrics people tend to be analytical. You know, all about the meaning of the song. They're the ones you see with the CD insert out like 5 minutes after buying it, pouring over the lyrics, interpreting the hell out of everything. Um, then there’s the music people, like Brooke. Who could care less for the lyrics as long as its just got like a good beat and you could dance to it. I don’t know, sometimes it might be easier to be a music girl and not a lyric girl. But since I’m not, let me just say this. Sometimes things find you when you need them to find you, I believe that. And for me its usually song lyrics." So basically i believe what Peyton believes, some people care about the music and some people care about the lyrics and me I'm a bit of both but mainly I'm a lyrics girl because i like songs that mean something to me and usually songs mean something to me because they have amazing lyrics.
I've already made a post of 100 songs to change your life which were literally my favourite songs of all time (well at the time that i posted them)  and that post is my most viewed post on my blog so I've decided i would do a bit of an update, not another 100 songs but my favourite songs right now so here it is, my songs of the moment. 

avicii - wake me up 
miley Cyrus - we can't stop 
robin thicke - blurred lines 
one direction - best song ever
Florida Georgia line - cruise 
One Republic - counting stars 
passenger- let her go 
passenger - all the little lights 
passenger - things that stop you dreaming 
demi lovato - warrior 
wakey!wakey! - dance so good 
wakey!wakey! - light outside 
jacks mannequin - the mixed tape 
clouds - Zach sobiech
Ben Howard - only love 

so there it is my top 15 songs at the moment, these obviously aren't all because i love the lyrics and they aren't in any order but they are the songs I've found myself listening to most often through out this summer.

I haven't made a blog post in quite a while because well i've been doing exams for the past couple of months which meant a lot of revision, but they're all over now and i'm officially left school and have 10 weeks of summer which i am so happy about!
After my exams finished on the 19th of june i had one day off and then it was prom which i had been looking forward to ever since my brother had his prom so like for the past 7 years and well the whole night was amazing! As well as loving the actual prom i loved getting ready, having people do my hair and make up, doing my nails and getting ready into my dress was so much fun. Once i was ready i went up to my friend katie's house where me and my friends were meeting to go in our limo to beamish hall where our prom was, while we were there we took lots of photos so these are just some of the ones i love
from left to right, Amy, Sophie, Beth, Me, Ellie, Chloe, Katie, Harriet and Zoe

Once we arrived at Beamish hall we took more photos and waited for everyone to arrive so we could see everyone's dresses, we then went inside and had a meal which was surprising really nice. After that there was a disco but we ended up spending most of the night sitting around outside and taking more photos
Standing: Jamie, Ellie, Chloe, Alex, Me, Beth, Katie, Zoe and Harriet
Sitting: Glen, James, Evan, James and Matthew 
 When it was time to go home we all got back in the limo and went back to my friend Beth's house for the after party, where we just had a few drinks and sat around talking until around 5/6 in the morning when we eventually fell asleep and woke up around 5 of 6 hours later when Me and Katie then left to get ready to go to North East live a concert which lasted for the next 9 hours! This was such an amazing start to the summer and i really hope it continues like this!

May favourites!

I actually can't believe it's already june, this year seems to be going far too fast on the bright side though that means i'm almost finished my exams and i'll have around 10 weeks off school! Anyway i figured seen as though it's now June i would post my May favourites so here they are.

My first favourite has to the Essie mint candy apple nail polish, i heard about this from Zoe of zoella and bethany of macbarbie07 and i just knew i had to have so i went out and i bought it and i have been in love ever since and every time i want to paint my nails this is what i reach for i basically just love this nail polish.

my next favourite is a product i got for christmas in the benefit sexy little stowaways set and that is the bella bamba 3D brightening face powder. I've been loving this lately as i've had a lot of exams which means a lot of late nights and early morning and generally when i have an exam i can't really be bothered to do much make up this really helps to brighten up my face.

my next favourites go together and they are the rimmel wake me up foundation and concealer which again are amazing on those early mornings when i want to look a bit more awake. The real techniques buffing brush also goes along with this as i have been loving this brush for applying my foundation as it gives amazing coverage!

my final beauty favourite is the wella thermal image heat protect spray, i've been loving this as i've been trying to use less heat on my hair as i had been straightening my hair every day and it was starting to have an effect on my hair however there's still odd times when i want to straighten my hair so this is great to avoid damaging my hair too much.

Now onto my non beauty favourites, first of all my favourite tv show for may has to be one tree hill, i've been loving this show since january but i finally bought the season 1 dvd and i've just been watching it whilst doing my revision and i love it just as much now as i did when i first watched it.

My favourite book of the month this month has to be the last song although technically i finished this book yesterday so not in may i started reading this on friday whilst sunbathing in the garden and i loved it so much that i read it within two days! i've loved the film ever since it came out but for some reason i had never read the book so i'm so glad i finally read it!

And finally my favourite songs of the month, this is really hard to chose but i thinking i'm going ot have to go with imagine dragons on top of the world which is just one of the many imagine dragons songs i've been loving lately and mcfly love is easy but this version -  as i saw it and completely fell in love with mcfly again. so that's it these are all of my May favourites :)
