What I have learnt from GG challenge

My golly gosh can you believe it? We have come to the final blog challenge post and to the end of September! How crazy is that and how fast did that month want to go?!?!??!

For the last post, its about what we learnt during this 30 day challenge.

Due to this, I have made a list of all the things I will take away with me and what I have learnt about myself in the process of writing all of these posts out!

So here is '#TheGirlGang Blogging challenge (Day Thirty)'...

One for banoffee lovers

So we have had our craft in this month's bake and make series so now it is time for the bake!
Now who loves a good cupcake to sink your teeth in? If your answer is yes then do you love banoffee (banana and toffee)? If yes again, then this recipe is for you!!!!

Because, I have made these scrumptious banoffee cupcakes to delve into!

The recipe was from Good and although I have changed it slightly, they are so easy to make and look so so gooooooood, perfect for a treat after a long, hard day or for an event!

So here is 'Banoffee Cupcakes'...

A memory I hold most dear

Almost the end of this GG blog challenge and it is so sad! I have been really enjoying it and cannot believe how fast it has gone!

The penultimate post now and it is all about our memories but one that we think about a lot.

A picture perfect house

Can you believe we are coming up to the end of September? This month has gone so fast! Actually never mind this month, this whole year has gone so fast!

For today's post, it is all about our dream home. From a penthouse in a big city or to a beachside home with a stunning sea view, everyone has their dream home and I am no exception.

I like me.

After so many years, don't ask how long because I have lost count, I haven't liked me. From having zero confidence to getting bullied at school and at home, I knew (and still know) that others had it so much worse than me therefore I just got on with it so to speak, if that is the right way to put it but it really affected the way I saw my life.

In other words, I felt crap about myself all day, everyday, 24/7.
And today was one of those days. I am feeling really down about the fact that I still haven't got a job yet after months of looking now and I am feeling really down about it.

Cheesy picture but ahhhh wellllll
But because of some amazingly lovely people on Twitter tweeting me saying it was alright and that it will all be worth it in the end and if these past couple of years have taught me anything, it is this.
I like me. And here is why.

So here is 'A Realisation, I like me.'...

Becoming a burlesque dancer?

Things in life are often quite scary, that is life! But it is even more annoying when you would love to do it but cant because of the fear!

I have a number of things that I really want to do, even if it is just once, but the scare factor often comes into play and it puts me right off it.

However there is one thing that does come to mind when I think about it!

First 10 songs on shuffle

Music is a wonderful thing... Sometimes. It makes you forget about your troubles and sing your heart our and dance like no one is watching! It is one of life's greatest pleasures!

For todays post, I will be showing you the first 10 songs on shuffle. Fingers crossed I don't get any embarrassing, cheesy ones because there are a couple of them!

My day in gifs

Oooooo I have been looking forward to todays blog challenge post for ages now! If you follow me on Twitter then you will know how much I love using Gifs in my tweets. Heck, I am the queen of the gifs haha!

When I found out that we had to post using words and gifs to explain our day for the challenge, it was mission accepted. This is my kind of mission.

My current go to outfit

All about fashion today in this GG challenge post! I love finding a piece of item that you can pretty much wear with anything or that you can just put on and feel comfortable in. Doesn't happen to me as often as I like it too (I suppose that's good in a way since I have zero money) but when it does it is fab!

Due to this, I have conjured up a little go to outfit that is simple but colourful and stylish.

Hello ten year old Caroline

Day 23 now in the Girl Gang blog challenge and it is to post a picture of yourself under 10 and say why you choose it.

Luckily for me, my mum took loads (and I mean loads) of photos when I was younger so picking one that I liked was hard as there was a lot of choice!

Let's talk about today

Day twenty one in the GG blog challenge and I am currently sat at my bureau wondering what to put about today's post.

I want to meet a warlock

Can this month just slow down a bit please?! Going far too fast for my liking!
Anyway, day nineteen of the GG blog challenge and this one is by far one of my favourites in this. There are a lot of people I would love to meet. Actors Christian Bale, Peter Capaldi, actresses Jenna Coleman and Emma Stone and I am not even going to mention the whole cast of Merlin... I think I would die if that ever happened.

However, there is one person who automatically springs to my mind, putting a huge smile on my face as I am typing this post out. My Irish Charm.

My three favourite films

We had the option of either top three favourite books or top three favourite films in today GG challenge and well, naturally I went for the latter one! Anyone who knows me knows I love to watch a good film!

It was hard to witter it down to just three but I finally managed to after god knows how many umming and arghing moments!

The Liebster Award

Don't you just love a blogging tag?! I know I do, I have done a couple before and have loved doing them! They are so much fun and well, when I got nominated to do the Liebster Award tag again by Jordanne from The Life of a Glasgow Girl, I was so happy!

Image taken from Jordanne's post
Who am I kidding? I am so excited to do this!

So here is 'The Liebster Award'...

Trying something new

Trying something new is always nerve wracking. From starting school, learning to drive to joining a group or even just trying out a new product, it is scary. You have no idea how it will turn out.

However, it can also be a thrilling experience and as cliché as it sounds, you never know until you try it.

Due to this, I am trying new moisturiser for the first time. I did want to do something a bit more exciting than this, believe me, but I didn't have time to think about it so here we are!

That's my goal

But what is my next goal I want to achieve I here you ask?! Well here it is!

Makeup products I live by

It is alllllll about the beauty today in this GG blog challenge post. I have quite a few favourite makeup products, most of them are lipsticks.

But I thought instead of just writing about them, I would just write about my favourite products I use in my daily routine for face, eyes (including eyebrows) and lips!

Embracing change

Change is a huge part of everyone's lives and for today GG post it is all about it!

I am not going to lie, I spent a lot of time thinking about the one thing I would change and why.

At first I was going to say all the bullying I went through in school and at home but then I realised that is what makes me who I am, without them I wouldn't be me in a way so thought of something else.

So here is '#TheGirlGang Blogging challenge (Day Fifteen)'...

It's time to stop avoiding things

I avoid doing a lot of things. Mainly tidying up my room because I am lazy and can't be bothered. The tidiness doesn't last long anyway.

However, I thought long and hard about the thing I avoid doing at all costs for day twelve's post in the blogging challenge.

And I came up with this.

The time I accidently broke my oven

Right, before we get onto today's post, I just want to take a moment to remember 9/11. It doesn't seem two minutes when I was watching the attack on the news, horrified and scared for all those people affected.
15 years later. 2 buildings. 1 city. 2,977 innocent people died. Never forget.

Can you believe it is almost two weeks into September?!?!?!?! How fast does this month want to go!? Anywayyyyy, today's GG challenge post is about food (yessssssss) but the worse meal/experience you have had. How very interesting!

Cause of the problem!

It's a no from me, Justin

First things first, you may or may not have noticed that my blog header has had a bit of a colour change! I am so excited about Autumn, its my favourite time of year so thought why not change it to some Autumnal colours!

Anyway, on with today's post....

The Girl Gang is a positive space where bloggers can share anything they want. From things they are loving to things that don't like. There is no judgement here and this is one of the reasons why I love it! This post is all about the latter. In particular, a song we don't like.

Don't get me wrong, my music taste is crazy. I love pretty much everything but there are a few exceptions to this.

A letter to my 16 year old self

Another day, another post in the GG blog challenge.

For this, we have to write a letter to our 16 year old self. A lot of things happened when I was 16 and I haven't really talked about them, not in full detail so this should be interesting.

Exploring Bath (Part One)

On the 22nd August, my lovely mother and I visited Bath for four days! Now, my mum has wanted to visit this beautiful city for a while and we haven't been able to go (London was calling our names ok?!) but I am so glad we finally made it there!

Nichola's Gardening Adventures

Two posts today, aren't you a lucky lot?!
I have some exciting news today in this post as I kick off my monthly guest post series! I have been wanting to do this for a while now, have a month spot for any blogger to fill with their wonderful posts! How it will work! Every first Sunday of the month there will hopefully be another blogger's post. Their post is their own idea, own photographs and it can be about anything. If you are interested in guest posting with me, then please contact me! I would love to hear form you so don't hesitate!

I am so happy to say that this month's and the first guest post in this series comes from Nichola, from Gardening Adventures! Now, as I have recently become a keen gardener myself, I love this blog! It is so refreshing to read something that isn't fashion or beauty etc.

So here is 'Guest post| Nichola's Gardening Adventures'...

Now, if you know me personally or follow me on any social media links, you will often see pictures of food (yes, I am one of those people) because food is life.

Naturally, when I found out that today' challenge is what is your favourite recipe, I had to think long and hard about it, I have loads!!!!! But I finally managed to cut it down to this delicious recipe that I could quite happily live off for the rest of my life.

YMAS are the best

All about the music in day three's #TheGirlGang challenge!
I don't know where I would be with music. It helps me to relax, to have fun and to forget for a while.

My music taste varies a lot, from Disney, 90s cheesy pop and jazz to rock, punk-rock and many more!

But there is one band. One band that defeats any other.

I am grateful for...

Hello you lovely lot! Day two of the #TheGirlGang 30 day blogging challenge now and it all about what we are grateful for!

#TheGirlGang Blogging challenge introduction

Ahhhhhhh The Girl Gang... Spreading positivity and happiness around like confetti. I LOVE IT!
Formed by Jemma from Dorkface, The Girl Gang was set up to create a space for bloggers to communicate and share their posts etc. GG do movie nights and regular chats and they even hosted their very own event, which I am so jealous about because I really wanted to go!

Anyway, as I was scrolling through their Facebook page I stumbled onto a post about a 30 day blogging challenge Aimee, from Everyday Aimee, has set us lovely lot!

Image from Aimee's blog!
Of course it was challenge accepted and here we are! For the next 30 days, you are stuck with me posting every single day in September, aren't you a lucky lot!?
