Autumn is here

Autumn is finally here and I am so so so happy! The late nights, hot chocolate, Halloween, my birthday, leaves falling from the trees, it is my favourite time of year.
One thing I absolutely love about this season is the clothing and accessories.

Jumpers out, coats on, scarves wrapped around your neck and hats keeping you head warm, I adore the styles that come out now.

Here are my must haves in this cold season.

Say Cheese

One of my favourites things to do is taking photographs of absolutely everything and anything. Varying from people, places I have visited, flowers, food or even random things I find pretty, I absolutely love photography.

Not going to lie, I have no idea why or where this passion came from, I just used to take photos on my camera phone, edited them and hope for the best that they came out alright.

This post will show you how to take a good pictures form some of the things I have learned over the years and at university.

10 things I love at the minute!

Since the last couple of posts have been quite serious, this one wont be.

These are 10 things I love at the minute. This is how it will be written: 2 songs, 2 films, 2 books, 2 TV shows, 2 items of clothing. Simple as that.

So let us begin!

Don't worry about a thing

This post will be on a number of different things that you might experience in your life.
Stress, depression/sadness, hate, anxiety and fear are some of the things I have personally experienced during my teenage years and some of the things you may/have felt too.

So to help you (hopefully), I am going to be writing about how they affected me and how I coped with it.

Note I am basing this post on my own experience and if you are worried about yourself or someone you know then please go talk to someone and to your doctor.

I'm coming for you Alzheimer's (Part One)

This post is very personal so I am going to keep it short. One of the reasons why I am writing this is because I need to release some of the emotions I have had for the past few years due to it. I need to get it off my chest basically.

 If you are a family member and you are reading this and you don't like it then I am not sorry. Like I said it is personal but I am purely doing this to spread awareness about this awful disease and that is what I plan to do.

This is the story about Alzheimer's Disease.

Getting ready for a new term

On the 30th September, I am going back to university having had 2ish months off and I cannot wait! No, really, I am so excited to go back!

However, I am not that excited buying all of the things for my course as I am now poor.
I spent way too much money over the summer holidays and have about £10 in my account for the train to get me to uni.

So this is my guide for getting ready for uni or if you are going to school/college but on a budget!

Truman Capote, Penguin

Breakfast At Tiffany’s is one of the all-time classic must read books.

The Adventures in London 2014

Between the 27th to the 30th August 2014, my mother, my nanna and I went on a 3 night stay in London. Now, we do this every year because if we didn't then we wouldn't go on holiday anywhere.
However, I am not complaining as I love this capital city and this trip was crazy and fun and just the best trip so far really!

SO here is 'Travel| The Adventures in London 2014'...

20 facts about me...

According to my statistics on my blog, I have had almost 1000 page reviews (thank you, I wasn't expecting so many) so I thought it would be nice to post 20 facts about me that you may or may not know. Useless and weird information about moi.

So here we go.

Get the vintage look

This week, I am going to show you how to get the vintage look.

I, for one, adore anything vintage. From clothing and accessories to furniture, I love it!

Since I am going to Scarborough Vintage Fair on Sunday 24th August, I will most likely be dressed up in my vintage inspired things (clothing and makeup).

So this is my basic guide to dressing vintage.

Mackerel with tomato sauce and salad

For my next recipe, I am going to do a savoury option that take roughly 20-30 minutes to prepare and cook. Although not likely to appear in Great British Bake Off, this recipe will get your taste buds turning (in a good way).

This weeks recipe: Mackerel in a tomato sauce with salad.

It is a perfect meal for the summer time. quick and easy to make and cook, you can substitute mackerel with another fish or even some meat.

I do not keep calm, I'm a fan girl!

Since most of my other posts have been slightly serious, this one definitely wont be. Although you will think I am crazy and weird etc by the end of this if you don't already, this will be on the subject on being a fan girl.

Now, if you know someone or if you are one yourself you will probably know that fans do not keep calm if it has anything to do with their fandom (what they obsess over basically).

A fan girl or fan boy can obsess over a television show, a band, a film, characters or even a book. And I mean obsess over...

The Sweet taste of Strawberries

Since the Great British Bake Off (GBBO) has returned to our television screens, for the next few weeks I will be posting some of my favourite baking recipes in honour of it.

This week: Strawberry Mousse Cake.

Now, this recipe is by GBBO very own judge, Paul Hollywood! Taken from his 'Pies and Pubs' recipe book, this simple dessert is perfect for the summer time and for a quick, light treat for all of the family and friends.

Making the right career choices

Sorry, I haven't posted in a while- it's the summer holidays so I have been busy. However, I am back and for my next blog post I am going to be writing about making the right career choices.

If you know me personally then I am currently at university, studying a Foundation Journalism degree. Obviously by looking at my course I am doing, I would love to become a Journalist, working in a magazine or via a website. But how do you find the 'right' career for you.

During primary school and secondary school, teachers would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. This varied from being a teacher, a vet, a dancer, an actor, a CSI (crime scene investigator) or a business woman etc, so I have wanted to become a lot of things in my life so far.

But what made me choose to become a journalist and how do you choose what you want to be?

SO here is 'Lifestyle| Making the right career choices'...

Previously mentioned in another post, I love to get creative when painting my nails. Here are a few designs I have done. I would have posted more photos but I could not find any photos to show them to you.

All you need is love

For my next post I wanted to write about something that intrigues me. Love.

Love in general is becoming more and more publicised about. You can read it in books/magazines, see it on the television, watch it in a film/play, listen to it in songs or discover it in a poem. You can pretty much find it anywhere and this is what intrigues me about it. Although you cannot physically see it, how do you feel it, when do you know you feel it and why do people fall for the concept of being in love?

So here is 'Lifestyle| All you need is love'...

My Bullying Experience.

This post is really personal to me and I probably have a tear in my eye writing this but I feel like I need to write it. This is my bullying story. If you are thinking that I am publishing this for sympathy and what not then I am not. Throughout my childhood, I was bullied at school and at home.

Hearing about these teenagers, who had all of their lives to live, killing/hurting themselves due to bullying makes me really upset because they didn't deserve that. No one does. Bullying is a huge problem nowadays. With the creation of the internet, cyber-bullying has become more common. Most of the time, the bullies may not think that they are causing any harm by tweeting or messaging a person hate but they clearly don't understand how it affects some people, both mentally and physically. Although I have never been cyber-bullied, I have been bullied face to face.

So here is 'Lifestyle| My Bullying Experience'...

London's Calling

 A brief outline of this post: For my university assignment, I had to write a travel feature in which I chose London. I wanted to share a section of my finished article with you because out of all of my assignments this is the highest grade I got (42/50), something in which I am extremely happy about. Another thing is that it informs you about London and all the cool things to do whilst you are there. I hope you enjoy it.


So here is 'Travel| London's Calling'...

A new start. A new me.

It's half way through 2014 and as cliché as it sounds, I want to be healthier and more happy with my body.

So because this is my first post, I wanted to write about something in which I am currently doing, exercising and trying to lose weight.
