Why it's ok to be a teetotaler

At the ripe old age of 22, I am a teetotaler. As someone who doesn't drink alcohol (unless I want to -which is very rare- or it's for a special occasion), most of the time I get people saying 'you are sooooo boring' and 'why don't you ever come out', especially whilst I was at college a few years ago.

Society has portrayed how certain age groups have to be like or are like specific things. From 18 years old and onwards, we should be going out, getting drunk, having fun. I like to do these things, minus the middle.

Due to the fact I am sick and tired of people saying I'm boring because I don't like to get hammered, I am here writing this post here.

Awesome Blogger Tag

Today's post is a blogger tag and I am sooooo excited for it! I haven't done the Awesome Blogger Tag before so when the lovely Melina, from her blog I've Found Waldo, nominated me to do it, I was thrilled!

Thank you Melina for tagging me in this, it was so much fun to do and the questions made me think about things, whilst spreading a bit of positivity and fun!

So let us get on with the today's blogger tag...

Dear friends...

Another day, another Dear... post. I just love writing these, as stated before in previous ones. It gives me a chance to write whatever is on my mind about something or someone and just let it all go.

Today's one is for a number of people that I hold most dear in the world. My friends. Growing up, I wasn't in the popular crowd. I wasn't friends with people just so I could say 'ooo I have so many mates', I was friends with others because I liked and appreciated them as human beings.

Friendships come and go, that's life, but these people have been with me through the thick and thin and I don't know where I would be without them. So featuring some really old photographs and some soppy words, here I am.

Here is my letter to you, my friends...

Top three male characters (TV)

Being a professional fangirl and all certainly comes with its ups and down (mainly ups though). You become involved in the story, ship two characters so hard it hurts [yes, I am looking at you Merthur] and you just fall in love with people in it. And then they end up either alone or they die.

There are sooooo many characters I love on TV, too many to even begin to tell you the precise figure. However, these three in particular are definitely my favourite, for very different reasons. Today I am focusing on male TV show characters but don't worry, there will be a female version post coming up as well!

So here are my favourite gentlemen on the small screen...

Why I am putting down my mobile phone

In today’s society, technology is everywhere. There is really no escaping it. Our generation is the generation where the world has come on leaps and bounds technology wise and it has given people so many opportunities because of it. From watches that you can call people on to your phone actually talking back to you, it is crazy how far we have come in the past 50 odd years.

However, due to this, we have just been staring at the world through a screen and I am no expectation to this. This is why I have started to put down my iPhone 4 [shout out to the oldies] and starting doing this and actually living in the real world and not online for once.

A splash of [pastel] colour

I love pastel colours, they are hands down my favourite! So of course pastel colour clothing are automatically the best.

Due to this and the fact that it is actually nice outside for once, I have came up with this little outfit that is just a splash of pastel colour!

So let us begin...

A makeup studio heaven blogger event

On Thursday 11th May, I attend a blogger event and it was so much fun. Hosted by the lovely Amanda Bell, it was set in her brand new and very beautiful makeup studio in Norton!

It was such a lovely event! I got to see some of my favourite bloggers and have a much needed catch up and got to meet new bloggers, which is always nice!

Because I had such a fab time on Thursday night, I thought I would share some snaps I took of the pretty studio! Get ready for every blogger's dream studio for blog photos.

A fabulous bright and white studio...

A splendid birthday trip out

Yesterday was one of the best days ever. Before you ask, it wasn't my birthday yesterday. However, it was my amazing mother's special day and it was just beautiful. After finishing work at 11:45am and getting back home 45 minutes later, I decided to make her a cute, spontaneous afternoon tea to celebrate her big day!

As soon as she walked in at 14:18 precisely, my mum goes, 'you know what I would love to do Caroline, I would love to go to Great Ayton and just relax for my birthday'. Awkwardly saying, 'oh well, look what I did for ya' and her being so overwhelming happy [which made me cry because it makes me so unbelievably happy to see her happy], we actually packed it all up, dropped it off at my nanna's and went to Great Ayton. Due to this, I thought I would create a photograph based post today and share some snaps I took yesterday because they just fill me with happiness!

It really was such a splendid birthday trip out...

Me, my insecurities and I

Since setting up my little space on the good old internet, I have let go of things that had got me down and were holding me back. Personal posts are one of my favourite things to write and even read. Don't get me wrong, they are proper hard to write and even harder to publish but I like to express myself as well as reading about other people's opinions on areas that may or may not affect me. They makes us human.
From my bullying experience to liking myself to many others, I have come along way since my first ever post but I still have a lot of insecurities.

I don't know why I thought this might work, but I thought that by writing -typing- them down, it would kinda help me focus on them and seeing if I can overcome them.

Due to this, I have come up with this honest list of my insecurities...

Tips for a Spring cleaned wardrobe

With Spring in full bloom, it means that the flowers are saying hello, the sun [hopefully] is shining and well, the Spring/Summer wardrobe comes out after half a year of being shoved to the back of the closet.

I don't know about you, but I love a good Spring cleaning session. A day where you just get rid of the clutter in your house and treat yourself to some bits n bob. There gives me no greater pleasure than getting rid of them 'Oh I am sure I will wear this again' clothing items, that, let's face it, I won't wear again.

However, sometimes [most of the time] we wake up and think 'not today' when it comes to cleaning out our wardrobes and well, this is where this post comes in. In collaboration with Dia & Co [I have NOT been paid for this to clarify], I was totally up for this collab as it got me thinking about sorting out my overly filled wardrobe.

So here some tips to get your wardrobe looking Spring ready...

Why I have never had a relationship

During my 22 years of existence, I have never had a real relationship. I have had a couple on/off ones and will they/wont they situations but not a real boyfriend and girlfriend deal. Growing up, most of my friends had a partner and then there was me, just chilling. Like I am the queen of third-wheeling.

Not going to lie, this used to get me down, like why did I not have a boy holding my hand? Was it because I was this fat, weird kid that was annoying? Probably. However, growing up and looking back on it all, I can safely say I wasn't ready to have a boyfriend and that I realllllllllllllly did not want relationship.

And here is why I have never had dated anyone...

My weird celebrity crushes

After a couple of personal posts [gosh, I am rolling them out like aren't I], I thought I would post something a little more light hearted. A fangirl post... Yesssssssssssss!

We all have crushes in life and we all have crushes on famous people [I am looking at you Colin Morgan]. Whether it is the opposite sex or the same sex, we all drool over them and say 'how can one be so perfect' and have a bit of a cry at their amazing talent and beauty. And when I write we, I mean me. That's just how I roll evidently!

However, we all have our weird celebrity crushes, where when we tell people they normally tell us to get our eyes checked. My eyesight is pretty fab for your information!

Due to this, I have came up with these four celeb crushes that people just say 'what the hell Caroline'...
