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 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!

 

The French goes shoppping!

HEY!It’s a beautiful day today! Nice and warm , I hope where you are the weather is nice! I told you in my last post my friend from France was coming! YAY! Well she’s here! Let’s call her Lola. She always wanted to be called Lola when she was little.

Anyway Lola and me went to visit a nice big city, we went to an art museum which was beautiful plus it was free! Then we went shopping! To be honest we visited a bit too many shops, basically there was the main shopping centre but there wasn’t any Primarks , bearing in mind that we had already walked a lot and we weren’t quite sure how to get back to the train station so we went to ask two girls who were carrying a Primark bag where the shop was, and then we went to Primark which was quite far away so at the end of shopping our feet were hurting like mad. By the way the two girls were fantastic at giving directions!

Anyway we thought that it would be a good idea to show you what we bought! 🙂

(Hopefully you can see all the photos because lately I’ve been having quite a few problems with uploading photos, I don’t know why).

This is what Lola bought:

(I’ll be translating what she says, keep in mind that I will not be the one talking.)

#Facetheday by COLLECTION

I wanted a palette like this for a long time but I couldn’t find one which was good and quite cheap. My favourite colour is the one next to the pale pink blusher I guess, It’s a nice suttle shimmery gold colour . (boots)

Think Pink by Lush.

I’ve never been in a Lush Store so I really wanted to get a bath bomb, simple.

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANail lacquer by KIKO.

I’ve been in quite a few shops looking for this nice dark green colour but none had it even Sephora didn’t, theirs wasn’t pretty. When I saw this one in KIKO was perfect I was over the moon! It was only 1£.

Primark!

I love the cut on this t-shirt and the faded grey or black.

Very Pink by Impulse.

We don’t have this brand in France so I just wanted to try it out. (boots)

All the t-shirts I’ve bought are from Primark in this haul. Haha

Okay so in this photo the t-shirt kind of looks like a bat. Anyway there’s like holes on the arms. ( I don’t know how we call those) I also like the flares on the arms.

So I love all the camouflagy things at the moment! So yeah I couldn’t resist this Jacket. The Jacket looks better in real life.

 

 

What can I say I love jewellery!

 

Well that’s her hall done let’s get on to mine! As you will notice our sense of style is quite different!

Butterball by Lush.

I chose the butterball bomb so that my skin will go all soft. I’m planning to use it on the last day of the holidays. I was so happy to find out that they are against animal testing.

Bronze Glow by COLLECTION

I love this so much it must be my favourite makeup bit. Though I don’t have any brushes, I can still use my fingers. hahaha, It’s a beautiful light shimmery bronzer it’s kind of like a cross of highlighter and a bronzer.

I had a big crush on this nail varnish, I just couldn’t resist. It’s a nude with gold shimmers. (Kiko)

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Tea tree witch hazel Charcoal mask. Let me tell you a funny story about this mask, basically at first we were going to share it but at the till. The women told us that there was an offer, they had a buy one get one free. So she got us another one! We were lucky. Things like this makes my day 100x better. (boots)

I love this kind of boho style at the moment as you can see with the bracelets which I got from Primark.

They are not pyjamas! My family keeps on telling me that they are. Okay on their own they kind of look like them but I’m sure that I can rock them with a nice pair of black jeans. (Primark)

I haven’t been to Germany yet but when I do I’ll wear this T-shirt! (Primark)

I don’t wear a lot of bright colours but this one had a nice cut so why not? (Primark)

A nice summery light green t-shirt, I love the cut and simply how airy it is. (Primark)

 

 

I think that’s it! I just realized that I should probably stop buying T-shirts and buy warmer stuff instead. I think it was a successful shopping trip usually I don’t buy this much but this time I found a lot of things that I liked. My favourite purchase must be the highlighter/bronzer it makes my skin so shiny and glowy I love it! I’ve never done a haul on my blog  I think, do you guys like hauls?

Have a nice day! Bye!

Ramble Scramble Bramble.

This post is going to be about whatever comes to mind!

YAY!!!! The Olympics have started! I loved the opening ceremony, I liked how it was about global warming and taking care of the earth together, I thought that planting a giant tree was a brilliant Idea! I had to watch the ceremony on replay the next morning because it was at night time. The time difference kind of sucks .I’m very happy that they have made a refugee team! I got quite emotional about that, I hope that they’ll do well, it will be great for their future and the future of there families. Plus it gives a lot of hope to other refugees. I’m probably going to support there team. My favourite sports to watch on the Olympics are Weightlifting, Diving ( Those men are so hot…) and synchronised swimming. What are you favourites?

So two weeks ago as you may know I went camping, I went on the beach and went stone picking so I painted TOTORO on a rock!! I love Totoro so much he is such a

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

loving character! He’s a spirit in the film “My neighbour Totoro” which is one of my favourite films ever I could watch it over and over again. It’s a shame that not many people know who he is. I was on Instagram the other day and there was this picture of Totoro in form of a bed and nobody knew who he was! They all thought that he was simply a big cute cat. 😦

Yesterday I went swimming! I haven’t been swimming for so long maybe more than a year! Because each time I was meant to be swimming I was on my period so yeah that sucks. But this time I wasn’t on my period and I could go swimming! It was so nice just playing around in the pool unsuccessfully trying to teach my brother to swim. After that we had a barbecue yay! I made this sort of banana split-smore thingy. Basically I opened up the banana and I put two pieces of chocolate and a marshmallow then I wrapped it up with tin foil and chucked it on the barbecue. Just let me tell you that this was proper FOODPORN, how everything just melted in your mouth… mmmm.. It’s better than cake.

My best friend from France is coming Tuesday and I am so SO excited!!! I might make posts with her but I’m not sure yet. She is extremely bad at talking English so it’s going to be a funny experience. I’m quite nervous for her because she’s taking the plane for the first time alone to a place where she won’t be able to understand anything! Send her telepathic luck please!

That’s all of my Ramble Scramble Bramble! I’m sorry if the title was to cringy for you. I hope you are having a great summer and that you are having loads of barbecues! BYE!!

July favourites.

Yep I’m back with a monthly favourites! It feels like I haven’t made one in ages. I love monthly favourites they are my favourite kind of blog post!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

1-TEA! I couldn’t make the comeback of this series without tea! I never tried this brand before and I’m impressed. It feels as if I’m drinking fancy tea, I  find the packaging so pretty and fancy with the royal botanic garden mark-print-thingy-with-the-crown. I love the taste! It’s like a super yummy strawberry tart but after a dozen of sips you completely forge about the tart and just think about how nice this tea is. (Also can we just celebrate the fact that I actually went outside to take this picture–Go me!)

 

2- Book: We were liars by E.Lockhart. I loved this book! A few years ago I tried to read it but I didn’t understand it so I gave up (I know weird huh) I decided to give it another go , I enjoyed it and it was totally understandable, it’s so different from what I usually read. I adored all the characters from the book they each had a different kind of personality and I could relate to a couple of characters.

3-Pastel pink nail varnish. Throughout the year I always go for darker colours but every summer I buy one bright nail varnish. And this year I chose this one, I find this one beautiful and summery and it stays on for quite a long time! I got it from TK maxx for £2, so yeah I got lucky. (The colour on the photo is darker than it should be)

 

4-Tilted by Christine and the queens. I love this song so much, it make me so happy. So this is a French group (which are equally amazing in French by the way) they made their way onto British radio by mixing their song with English and French, when I first heard them on the radio I was over the moon! We never hear other languages on British radio! So please please Please go and check them out!

Cast_20160727_9180_P7270196.JPG5-Stripy vans! I love these shoes so so much! I have been wearing them all month! Though at first I as worried that they were to small because they were so tight so I tortured myself for a week by wearing them all the time to make them fit, thankfully after a while they  did.

 

Hope you liked this post! If you have something that you really liked this month please tell me in the comments I would love to know!  Bye! Have a good day!

My fab weekend

 I don’t think that this was a successful week-end to be honest.. I had loads of homework to do, The weather was too warm to do anything, I made burnt cookies…

BeFunky Collage.jpg
The cookies were originally by Tanya Burr ( you can find them on her blog)Here

But one thing that I loved about this weekend was that summer clothes made their way back! I love summer clothes so much I feel free and I’m always in a good mood when I wear them! I mean sleeping in soft shorts is the best! Actually I think that being able to go outside barefoot without being cold is the best! Feeling the grass between your toes…

(Sorry if you have podophobia)

 

I know people don’t usually take pictures of their naked feet but the camera was in my hands and I thought that it would probably make a cool photo; I was wrong of course.

I have searched the internet for a poem about summer as I am super excited! Oh look the poem must be about me!

Barefoot Days.

In the morning, very early,
That’s the time I love to go
Barefoot where the fern grows curly
And grass is cool between each toe,
On a summer morning-O!
On a summer morning!

That is when the birds go by
Up the sunny slopes of air,
And each rose has a butterfly
Or a golden bee to wear;
And I am glad in every toe
Such a summer morning-O!
Such a summer morning!

Rachel Field

I hoped you liked this post that I made for you, It is not what I usually write but I was in a good mood and sometimes a little change is good :)!

I hope you are having a fantastic day!

Bye!
