A letter to the school bullies

I feel like every single personal post I do includes the fact that I was bullied at school and at home and while it really did affect me, my mental health and my life, I feel like I just need to end it and leave it in the past and move on.
Due to me wanting to do this and just let go of it all, I am writing this post. This will be the [hopefully] final post about my bullying experience and that's it.

Me and my friend Loz after school on cold winters day!
I thought the best way to write down everything about those incredibly hard years is to write them a letter. Now, this is going to be focused on the bullies at school and not at home so it will be in two parts.  [Note there is a bit of swearing in this post, sorry guys]

But here is my letter the school bullies.

Spring has sprung

Spring has finally arrived and it is my favourite season and I am so happy right now YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
I love this beautiful season for many reasons. I love seeing the flowers bloom, the not to hot-not to cold weather, Easter, pretty sunrises/sunsets, sooooo many things I love about it!
However, you cannot beat a bit of spring fashion. Pretty dresses/skirts, pastel clothing everywhere and flower prints on everything, I absolutely love it and so here I am, with this outfit perfect for those sunny days!
Spring has definitely sprung in my wardrobe...

Five things I hate about blogging

Ahhh the wonderful world of blogging certainly has its ups and downs. One minute I love it, the next something annoys me. For the most part though I blooming love blogging, it has given me so much confidence in myself and my skills, I have met amazing people through it and had a lot of fun along the way in terms of writing and designing!

However, it isn't all flat lay photos, pretty flowers and unicorns as aspects of this world annoy the hell out of me.

So here are the things I hate about blogging...

My weird hobby part 3

We have had the original. We have had a little catch up. But now it is time for my weird hobby part 3. How exciting is this wooooooooooo! Now, if you have noooo idea what I am talking about then where have you been?!?!?!? I'm joking of course! My weird hobby is that I collect coins. From 50ps to £2s [and sometimes £1s], I have an ever growing collection that I am sooo super proud of!

Due to the fact that I have had such a lovely response to them two posts and because I have collected more since the last time, here we are!

Can you tell I am super duper excited about this because I have got some crackers!

Why journalism wasn't for me

From 2013-2016, I was at university studying journalism, something in which I had been wanting to do since year 11 in secondary school. I was so excited to get into university [especially after messing up my A-Levels] and yeah, it wasn't the one I wanted to go to, but I was just thrilled to be able to put something I am interested into motion and actually study it.

However, after first year was over, I hated it. I hated going to uni. But more importantly, I hated the course and journalism. I realised it just wasn't for me, and as much as it hurt knowing that, it just isn't and here is why...

Little home touches

Over the past few months, I have had such a massive clear out in my bedroom. And the prize for worst hoarder of crap goes to... Me! I have thrown out/given to charity a total of 20 bin bags full. Like whyyyy am I like this?!

Anyway, due to this, I got rid of loads of duvet sets, toys, old makeup/beauty products, clothing, random boxes I had for storage and a hell of a lot more! However, I did buy a few things as well as reusing others I already had. Because of this, I have came up with this little post to show you have I have cut down on the crap whilst adding a bit more me in my bedroom!

Nothing like a bit individual and quirky home touches...

It is the little things

Sometimes we often forget about the nice things in life due to busy work life. We forget the little things. The things that make us happy when we are feeling sad or in a crappy situation we don't want to be in.

When I am feeling horrible, I try to remember why I am here and the things that often escape my mind in times of doubt and self hatred so because of this, I have came up with this list so that they can (hopefully) add a little smile on your faces and remind you that there are things in life that make it all worth while.

Here are some of my favourite little things...

Top three female crushes

A few weeks ago, I published my top three male crushes and since I enjoyed the fangirling and most importantly, drooling over them, I am back with my three main female crushes!

Yes, I, for one, also have a lot of celeb crushes that are the same sex as me and I don't care about that because these three are absolute perfection and drop dead gorgeous!

From an actress from my favourite ever TV show, Merlin, and a GoT star to my favourite ever person on this earth, these three will always be up there for me and here they are...

Globetrotters| Jiamusi, China

Kicking off a new post series here on my blog [woooooo] and I am soooooooooooo excited for it! A couple of weeks ago, I treated myself to a pink and silver globe from M&S like yessssssss! I tried to find it on their website but I think they might not sell it anymore, not too sure!

I have always wanted a globe in my bedroom because even though I was crap at geography at school, I loved learning about new places, other countries and different cultures, I found it all so fascinating!

Due to this, I thought I would put my new bedroom addition to use and here I am! After spinning the globe and putting my finger on a random place [with my eyes closed of course], I will research wherever I pick and bullet point some facts about it oooooooo! Now, I haven't decided yet whether this is going to be a fortnightly, monthly, just post whenever I want kinda thing, I am yet to make my mind up.

However, I thought I would kick it off now and well, I have our first city to explore...

Sweet Potato Brownies are a thing?!

Yes you read that right, sweet potato brownies. Two of my favourite things in life combined into one. On Twitter, I am probably know as the crazy girl who is obsessed with sweet potato fries [they are love, they are life] and I love anything that has this beautiful vegetable in!

Obviously, when I found out that these treats were a thing I was proper buzzing but even more intrigued. Since when were sweet potato brownies are a thing?! What the hell would they taste like? More sweet potato then a chocolaty brownie? Or vice versa? My taste buds just needed answers! Due to this I found this recipe by Lisa Harris and I made them!

So let us all feast our eyes on these beauties, find out how to make them and of course answer that all important question on our lips, do they actually taste nice...
