Starting high school tips!

Hello everyone, 
So I'm going to start off this post by saying I'm sorry I didn't post anything sooner, I have had a few family problems at home so I have been putting things on hold. 
Anyway back to the post, so many people will be back at school,college or sixth form or even university now and I can remember my first day at high school and I was Truly terrified. It was so much different then my small lower school, so I'm going to share with you lot my top tips for starting high school. 
1- My first tip for you all would to be, not to panic. On the first few weeks at high school I did get lost and was late to lessons on a few occasions, but if you are lost don't start to worry and get upset, look around and ask for help. If there isn't anyone in site just knock on a classroom door and ask politely if you could have some help, they won't bite, promise. 

2- Tip number two would be don't be afraid to talk to over people. Starting a new school means new people around you all the time so and having to sit with people who you had never spoke to before. Say hello and introduce yourself, you may be nervous about talking but the other person could be feeling the same too. 

3- organisation, this is key when you are going to high school. At primary you always get your pens and pencils given to you and if you lose them you could have another. However in high school this is different it's always good to have 2-3 pens and pencils on you so if one runs out you will have a spare pen. 

4- when you start high school you will be waking up very early so to help your morning routine easier prepare your school bag and dinner ( if you take it ) the night before so the next morning you know it's all ready for the day and you don't have a to rush.  

I hope these 4 tips help you on your journey to high school, the next 5 years are some of your best and will fly by! I hope you all enjoy school and make plenty of friends.

My bucket list!

Hello again,
So over the past few years I've started to create a bucket list. I decided to create one because there were  lots of things that i was dying to do or places where i would love to visit, or simple things that i would like to accomplish. So in this blog I'm going to tell you a few things that are on my bucket list so far and then explain why i have them on there, so here goes....

1- On the very top of my list is to 'visit Bora Bora', i have wanted to visit Bora Bora since i was on instagram and i saw a photo of the sea huts and i instantly fell in love with the place! It looked very piecefull and i love gong on beach holidays and Bora Bora is full of beaches.

2- The second on my list a lot of people that i have told seem to laugh at ,but it is to 'win at a game of bingo'. I am only 16 so I'm not old enough to yet sign up to bingo as you have to be 18. So as soon as I'm 18 I'll be signing up to bingo. The only reason i can think of why bingo is on my bucket list is because it seems fun and you can win money.

3- Thirdly on the bucket list is i really want to go to London and 'have my photo taken with a beefeater', for the people that don't know a beefeater is one of the guards outside the Buckingham Palace with the very large hats on and that show very little emotion. This again is on my list because when i have seen photos on Instagram they kind of make me jealous that i haven't seen one in person.

4- The fourth on my list is what most people will probably have on theirs too (that's if you have one),and that is to 'buy my own house' .  I look forward for the day when i can have my own home and decorate it how i like and choose the furniture that i want to have and make it my own.

5- 'Buying a coffee machine'  is the fifth thing on my list. I'm not a huge fan of tea and coffee but i do love having coco-chinos, also tesco near me has started selling Oreo mocca for the coffee machine,and i just really want to try it. A coffee machine,i find,makes your home look very friendly and homely. The smell of coffee is divine!

6- The last two things on my list are to visit places. The first one is to 'visit Pairs( Disney, Eiffel tower)'  i visited Paris last year and was lucky enough to take part in the Disney parade what was an unforgettable experience!

7- The last thing on my list is to visit ' Puglia in Italy'  I've wanted to go here since i watched Walking on sunshine on Netflix. The views there are beautiful and the weather looks amazing too. I have never visited Italy so it would also be amazing to go there.

I hope you enjoyed reading my random but unique bucket list, but maybe we have a few things in common! If you have had experienced any of the things I've mentioned or you want to experience them let me know in the comments below. Cya in my next blog,bye xx

Body Shop Haul xo

Hello readers, 
Every time i go into town the one shop that never fails a visit from me is the 'Body shop', it is simply one of my favourite shops to visit to simply buy from there or just go in and have quick look at all their lovely products. So in this blog i will be doing a 'Body shop haul'! 

This is my box full of many products that i have bought from the body shop, obviously i have had a lot more products from there but they have been used up. One of my personal favourites from body shop is the coconut range, coconut is a weakness for me and i have bought a lot of their coconut products in the past and its always been well worth its money. 

The coconut products i have at the moment came in a Christmas gift box that i got last year for Christmas, it came with a Coconut body scrub, Coconut body butter , Coconut shower cream ,a scrunchy and a Coconut hand soap ( that has been used up ). I adore all theses products and as you can tell they have all been used and once they are finished ill be buying them again! Out of 10, i would defiantly rate them a strong 10 as i have noting negative to say about them. 

I love having lip balms in my bag when I'm out on my travels,and the ones i have right now from body shop are from the 'born lippy' range that cost around £4. Starting from the top, i have watermelon lippy, that smells like a melon melody and and once it hit your lips you feel like your eating watermelons. The next two are the strawberry (left) and raspberry (right) lippy's. The strawberry smells strongly of strawberry's and gives your lips a pink shimmer when its applied,the raspberry lippy smells very sweet and also like the strawberry, it gives you a pink shimmery lip. The last one i have is the satsuma shimmer, this is my favourite of all the four, it strongly smells of oranges and has glitter mixed in with it to give your lips a shimmer. All four lip balms are amazing and small super fruity! Out of 10, i would give them a 9 because they do leave your lips feeling a little bit sticky when they are applied.

The vanilla brulee soap smells beautiful and only costed me £5, i love the smell of vanilla and find like coconut, it leaves you with super soft smelling skin. I have not yet had chance to use this because i am using the coconut version, but i cant wait to use it and share with you lot my experience with using the soap. 

I am a bit of a clean freak and i always like to have a hand cleansing gel with me when I'm out. The two that i have right now from body shop are the satsuma hand gel and the strawberry hand gel that cost me £3:50 each. Out of the two, i have used the orange one the most, this smelly very strong of oranges when its applied to your hands and as well as cleaning your hands they leave them feeling soft. The strawberry one  smells very sweet and isn't as strong smelling as the orange one. Out of 10 they would get a good 10, as they are good value for money. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

This product i had actually bought by mistake as i had thought it was coconut, but actually it's cocoa butter. I am not a huge fan of the cocoa smell so it very rarely gets used but when i have used it, it has left me with lovely soft hands. The hand and body lotion only costed me £4 and out of 10 i would give this a 7, just because i don't like the smell of cocoa,but it is still a good hand lotion to use.

 Thank you for reading my 'Body Shop Haul' i hope you enjoyed reading it. Leave comments now below and also don't forget to leave me any questions you would like me to answer in m Q+A blog. 
Cya next time xo
