Summer reads.

I really need to get in the blogging routine again… I always used to schedule my posts and I have to say life was a lot easier when I did that but since the holidays started I haven’t been doing it and now that I ‘m back to school and have loads of homework it’s quite hard to go back into that routine.

The reason why I didn’t post my weekly post on Friday was because I was on my period and it was the very painful kind where you can’t move so you just watch YouTube videos instead and cry your eyes out because your watching an impression video of the characters from Tim Burton films which was beautiful… Basically when I’m on my period I get highly emotional and anything can make me cry.

Anyway, Anyhow… Here is a list of the books I have read this summer!

The face on the milk carton by Caroline b. Cooney

This has been one of the most annoying series I have read.  Let me explain…

So the first book I thought was brilliant, the second was okay but started to get boring as nothing was really happening so as nothing was happening I thought that they would be an amazing plot twist at the end. Guess what…There was non…But the ending just forces you to read the next book so much so your in a vicious circle until you’ve read all the 4 books and you just get very disappointed at the end of the series. The only thing that got me going was that it was very easy to read and of course the suspense. I give this book a 3/5

missMiss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar Children. by Ransom Gibbs

Everyone needs to read this book at least once in their lives especially if you like fantasy/ gothic books ( actually gothic in only some parts).

I give this book a 4/5.

The night itself by Zoe Marriott.

I read this book because I wanted to read something different so why not try a book about a Japanese samurai girl living in England. I loved this book! It was easy to read. There was loads of film and book references which I loved even though I didn’t see the matrix. There were some Japanese spirits which I discovered. I learnt that Sonic the hedgehog’s friend is a spirit! ( the brown one) I don’t blame you if you don’t remember that cartoon.  Plus all the characters in the book are so loveable!  I give this book a  4.5/5

We were liars by E.Lockhart. 

I mean this book is completely beautiful! READ IT NOW!

I give this book a 5/5.

noughts and crosses.png

Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman.

Oh my god this book I’m reading at the moment is incredible it’s about segregation which is the first book I have read on this topic. Please give it a read!

I give this book a 5/5 so far.

 

That’s it! Have you read some of these books?  Which was your favourite book you read this summer? Has anyone read J.K Rowling’s new book? Have a great day and remember to read loads!

Bye!

 

My bucket list.

For me the beginning of a new year is when I start school, not when the number of the year changes. So yeah and each beginning of school year I make myself a mental bucket list which I usually don’t manage to achieve. So today I’m going to share it with you guys and maybe sharing it will make it more achievable.

Revise each evening what I have learnt in my science lessons.

Me and Science we are not friends, you could call us enemies but not friends. Don’t start talking about chemistry because that’s the worse one…I’m rubbish at science and if I don’t start improving now I’ll probably won’t pass GCSE science which will suck because Science is pretty damn important. I want to start revising now because I have chosen quite hard GCSEs and next year if I have to revise loads of science I might give up or cry everyday.

Take photographs whatever the weather.

Last year I had a phase where I didn’t like taking photos anymore, I just found the world boring. This happened just after summer ended it lasted until this year’s summer started so I think I just don’t like taking photos in bad weather. I need to make the most of Autumn, winter and spring because all seasons are truly beautiful, I just can’t see it yet.

Read more.

I feel as if I choose YouTube over reading a bit to often. I feel so bad for doing so, it kills me from the inside. If you have any book recommendation I would love to hear them!

Do more art.

I just want to improve my art skills especially in drawing. And also I want to draw/paint other things than faces because that’s the only that I’m drawing lately.

Be more confident.

A year and a bit ago, I changed school and country, I think that lowered my confidence a lot, I’ve became a super shy person who felt awkward and felt like nobody new the real me. The past week, the first back to school week , I felt a change, I was more confident which I was hugely proud about, I don’t know what made me confident again. It could of been because the fact that I met a lot of new people or maybe the fact of restarting. Whatever the reason I’m happy about it.

Go swimming.

I love going swimming but I don’t go that often because most of the time when my family wants to go I’m on my period so that’s great, so when I’m not on my period I need to organise swimming pool trips. Plus swimming is the only sport that I actually like.

Yep this year I didn’t aim to do more sport and get healthy because I know I’m not going to achieve it, it’s been  3 years that I’ve wanted to be healthier and sportier though thinking about it I have managed to be healthier so that’s a good thing I guess. I know this post have been posted on Saturday and not on Friday, I don’t have an excuse for that so sorry.

Anyway I have to go to town now so bye ! Oh and tell me what you want to achieve this year in the comments!

5 tattoos that I love!

So tomorrow I’m going back to school and to be honest I haven’t really prepared myself, today all I have been doing is chasing flies with a newspaper and going on my phone scrolling through Pinterest and I may have discovered that tattoos can be cute… Basically I used to be against tattoos, I couldn’t see the point but at the moment I’m seeing some beautiful ones on people’s bodies. So I decided to have a little look on Pinterest to see if there was a tattoo which I would have an immediate crush on. Let me show you what I have found…

 

This one is so pretty! I think I would either have it done on my arm like on the picture or going all around my ankle. flower-500x500

This second I don’t want to have it but I just want to ask why would someone tattoo a bobby-pin on their body? I just don’t get it.27b3bd1d3f39ebdb1120987ed96je98d1

This one I could actually see myself having, I would have it on my big toe. In 4 years if I still like it I would get  it tattooed. It will represent all the happy memories at the beach and the happy summer days plus I find it cool so yeah definitely loving that one!

This is just freaking adorable! I love it so much. I would get it on the side of my 4th finger so that it’s nice and discrete. And if I don’t want to show it to some people I can just close my fingers.

This is truly beautiful. I admire the person who has that tattoo. It’s the most beautiful tattoo I have seen on the internet. I really want to walk past someone in the street with that tattoo, I love it so so much. This watercolour effect is great.

Well that’s it! I am becoming way more acceptable about tattoos, of course I still find some which shocks me quite a lot. I find that you can tell a lot from a person by just looking at their tattoo, you can see how intelligent they are, what they are into or what is important to them.

Do you want a tattoo? Tell me what kind of tattoo you want in the comments!

Wish me luck for my back to school!

Bye!

 

Smoothie recipe+ 100 followers!

This is going to be a two part blog post as you can see from the title I think I’m going to start with a nice smoothie and finish with 100 lovely followers.

Every Summer I get obsessed over making smoothies, I get my inspiration from YouTube videos and Pinterest, most of them are disgusting, I mean why do I put kale in my smoothies when I don’t even like it!? or why do I add carrots to my smoothies when I know each time it doesn’t blend properly so it ends up me having to drink carrot bits. One thing I have learnt about making smoothies is to not add vegetables or to not try to aim for a green smoothie unless you are a smoothie master which I am  clearly not.

This time, for once, I managed to master the smoothie art! I finally made a fantastically yummy smoothie! I am so proud of it that I am going to share my recipe on the internet!

You will need:

75 ml of Orange juice.

75ml of Mango juice or you could also use mango chunks.

2 Bananas.

1 Nectarine.

Well I don’t really need to give directions for a smoothies because it is fairly easy, Just blend everything together and Voila! Oh I like freezing my bananas 1 hour before the blending so that I get a nice cold smoothie. I also like to add a small handful of red fruits to give it a bit more colour, if so I will sieve it because I hate having blueberry skin stuck between my teeth.

Well that’s the end of part 1, Shall we get started with the second part? I don’t know about you but I think we should.

On Monday something exciting happened to me, I reached 100 followers!Yay!

Honestly I did not think I would of been this happy, When I got the notification on my phone I started dancing around the kitchen ( I was making my lunch) grinning full of happiness.

I know that I am not the best of bloggers, I do not post more than twice a week, I forget to comment on posts that I love, my grammar is not the best, maybe some people don’t even like what I write but that’s fine by me. I didn’t get my 100 followers as quickly as most bloggers do but I don’t mind because blogging is not a big part of my life, It’s just a small hobby that I do to spend time apart from the real world, so I do not put my all into it like some bloggers do which I totally admire. I like it being a small hobby then I can concentrate more on my other hobbies because to be honest I’m quite bad at keeping hobbies.

I find the blogging community nice and cheerful. I think if people weren’t as nice, I would of probably given up. When I go on WordPress I feel as if I’m entering a crowd of lovely people smiling at each other and being supportive. It’s truly wonderful.

I just wanted to say thank you for all the lovely comments and thank to all 100 people for clicking that follow button. It means quite a lot to me.
