Where Have I Been?!?!

Hey everyone!

I am so so so sorry for not having a post uploaded for the last couple of weeks, even months.  Lately I have been super busy. This will probably be a short post, but all this is, is to tell you guys what I've been up to and why I haven't uploaded anything. However if I stay organised, I will hopefully get back into regular uploads! So, I'll get into discussing where I've been...

Firstly, starting back at college...like I mentioned in a previous blog post, I started a new course, and I have been trying to stay organised with that, and I have have quite a lot of work to do since starting.  I do really enjoy my course though, which helps! If you have started new subjects, courses or new studies, how are you finding them?

I also recently got a job, which I absolutely love! And I've been quite busy with that too, which I do not mind because I'm enjoying it so much.

So, I am definitely working on managing my time better so that I have more free time to …

College Experience

Hey everyone!

I'm very sorry that there hasn't been a blog post for the passed two weeks, I have been busy with college and getting back into the routine. Better late than never I suppose?! But I will be trying to get a post up every week when I have time and get into a routine.

Everyone has been back to school/college for three weeks now (well in the UK), and I hope you've had a good time back so far! So as the title says, I'm going to share my experience of college this year so far, and hopefully it may help some of you for when you are faced with similar situations.


Last year I was in college, I had friends in college that had been my friends in school, however, I never really had the chance to make friends.  Obviously part of this is down to myself not being confident enough.  So after thinking about my career path, I decided that the course was not for me and there was a more suited course to me.  However, despite me not enjoying the course very much, I passed th…

My Favourite Quotes

Hey everyone!

If you've just gone back to school/college, I hope you had a good first week back!

I've always been into reading quotes, and absolutely love anything that has a quote written on! I could spend hours looking at quotes, and recently I have been going through a stage where all I want to do is look through and read quotes.  I have so many favourites, and I find each ones can mean a lot. Obviously everyone has different opinions, and you may think differently to me, so I will just say what I think of these quotes. The quotes are in no particular order as I don't think I could really choose an order! Also, none of these quotes are mine.

Lets get into the quotes...

'Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise' - I love this one because it's so true...whatever problems you face, they will disappear, and soon everything will be fine.  It just takes time.

'Train your mind to see the best in every situation' - I think this quote is good becau…

How To Stay Organised and Motivated

Hey everyone!

As it's getting closer to the time where everyone goes back to school/college after the summer holidays, I thought I would try and upload a helpful post of how to stay organised and motivated. I will list the tips, and I know they might be obvious, or maybe silly, but it all helps right?!

Tip 1: Buy a new bag

Buying a new bag isn't a necessity, but if like me you love bags then it's always nice to get a new one.  If one year I bought a really good bag, I haven't always needed to buy a new one every year, so I kept the same bag.  Like everything, there's just something exciting about having a new bag!

Tip 2: Buy some new stationary

One of my main reasons for loving going back to school/college after the summer is because I LOVE stationary, and love watching back to school hauls on YouTube.  I feel like when I buy new stationary before starting a new school year, it motivates me, and I'm the type of person who spends absolutely ages looking at what st…

Reading List

Hey everyone!

Recently, I have been reading a lot as I have been enjoying it, so I decided to share the books I am wanting to read after I finish my current book, which is Anne Frank - The diary of a young girl (which I bought in Amsterdam at the museum).  And also, reading has always been one of my hobbies. I've always been a big reader, but I find I go through stages of wanting to read loads, and other times I only want to read a few pages or not at all.  So, I'm just going to list 10 books I want to read, and I will link them all.  Once I have read these books listed, I may do a book review post, so lookout for book reviews!

1. The Fault In Our Stars - John Green
Ever since watching the film, I have wanted to read the book.  I recently purchased the book, and cannot wait to read it! I would also like to read more of John Green's novels.

2. What You See Is What You Get - Alan Sugar
After watching the apprentice this year, I wanted to read an Alan Sugar book, and came acr…

My Trip to Amsterdam!

Image
Hey everyone!

I hope you enjoyed my last post, which was 'Places I'd Like To Visit'. As you can tell from the title, this post is about my trip to Amsterdam. I will talk about my whole experience, from flying, to arriving, to the things I did and leaving. I'm just going to go straight into the post because I'm so excited to be writing about this!

It was honestly the most incredible experience, and I definitely would like to go back there.  I had been waiting for months to go, since it was booked, and when the time finally came to leave for the airport I was ecstatic! I went for 3 days, so 4 nights, but I will talk about the day I went and the day I left. I will also include some photos I took. 😊

Day 1:
I wasn't really nervous about flying until we were queuing to board the   plane. I didn't feel that calm until we landed but the flight overall was really good, and it was a short flight too.

When we arrived in Amsterdam, I was still a little nervous as I had…

Places I'd Like To Visit

Hey everyone!

Earlier this week I was kind of torn on what post to upload today, so I decided to run a poll on twitter (@mydailylife_123) and the idea with the most votes was 'Places I'd like to visit', so I will just talk about a few of places I'd like to visit (no particular order), and any sights I'd like to see, as I LOVE sightseeing! Who doesn't though?! I decided to have this as one of the posts to upload, because I am very interested in travel/travelling, and one day I would like to have the opportunity to visit many different countries.

Firstly, one place I would like to visit, and have always wanted to is New York, and I'm sure everyone else wants to go too.  I would love to visit New York around Christmas time, I just think it would look amazing.  Of course it would look amazing anytime of the year, but I just think being there around Christmas time would be nice, as it would look pretty.

In New York I would like to see a few of the well known at…

My Pamper Night Routine

Image
Hey everyone!

I am very sorry that there hasn't been a post for around a week, I have been very busy recently.
For this post, I thought I would share my 'pamper night routine'.  We all know how nice it is to have a night to completely relax, and do whatever you feel like.

Firstly, if I am wearing makeup, I like to remove it with my Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil. I really like this to remove makeup and it makes your skin soft, and definitely removes all the makeup, however you do need to ensure you wash all the product off as it is oily.  I would recommend this product though!



On a pamper night I also love to have a face mask.  As my skin is quite sensitive, I am still looking for a face mask that doesn't agitate my skin.  One of the face masks that is fine for my skin is the Tea Tree Witch Hazel with active charcoal mask.  I like this face mask as it really makes your skin feel soft.  While the face mask is drying, I like to either watch YouTube or read a book, which …

My Favourite Youtubers and Bloggers

Hey everyone!

For this post I have decided to share my favourite Youtubers and Bloggers.  I'm not sure about you, but I love finding out new Youtubers to watch, or new blogs to read, so it is why I decided on writing them in a post.  Most of the Youtubers I am going to mention are quite well known, so yoou have probably heard of them, but I still wanted to make this post anyway.  I hope you enjoyed my post last week, which was 'Ways To Destress' and if you haven't already, please go check it out! http://mydailylife1231.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/ways-to-destress.html

Youtubers:

I love watching Youtube, so I have quite a few different favourite Youtubers. I'm not going to mention them in any particular order, it's just going to be random.  I will link their channels to their names.

Firstly, one of my favourite Youtubers is Alfie Deyes (PointlessBlog Vlogs).  When I first started watching Youtube, I watched Alfie's main channel videos and vlogs, but then I found …

Ways To Destress

Hey everyone!

This post is going to include different ways to help you destress and relax.  Obviously everyone is different, and may not find all these things destressing, but these things help me when I feel stressed, if I feel like I need a little break from what I am doing, or even if I am feeling a bit nervous.  I think taking time out to relax when you are stressed is so important, as it helps clear your mind.  When I was doing my exams, I feel like I didn't take enough time to relax, as I was so stressed and worried, I just felt like I had to revise all the time, which meant I got even more stressed out, but when I did take a break I would be thinking 'I need to be revising'.  So even if you just take 10-20 minutes to sit down, away from work, I think it still it helps.

I feel that moving away from the place that you are feeling stressed in can help you unwind, for example if you are completing work at a desk, move from the desk and take time to chill out.  I find th…

Liebster Awards - Discover New Blogs

Hey everyone!

This post is slightly different from my other uploads.  I was nominated to answer questions for the Liebster Awards by AnnieChanie, so thank you for the nomination Annie! Also, go check out her post and blog, which I have linked to her name.  I have been so excited to do this post and to be involved with this since I saw I was nominated, as not only to help others gain readers, but also to make new friends who all have a passion for blogging!

I am an early bird, I…

Favourite Healthy Snacks

Image
Hey everyone!

How was your week? I hope you all enjoyed my post last week which was my June Favourites! If you haven't already, please go check it out!

I love snacks, especially healthy snacks.  I am interest in cooking and food, and I think the interest has come from watching Jamie Oliver and YouTuber and blogger Niomi Smart. I have obviously got inspiration from my family, but when I properly started watching Jamie Oliver's TV programmes, in particular the Super Food series, that is when I started gaining an interest in cooking and food.  So for this post I will be sharing some of my favourite healthy snacks.

The first healthy snack that I love are Eat Real Quinoa, Lentil and Hummus crisps/chips.  They are my favourite crisps ever to have! All the flavours (some are: tomato and roasted garlic, sour cream and chives, chilli lime and sea salt) and different types are so delicious. If you have the chance to try any, definitely do! I do find when I go into different shops and su…

June Favourites

Image
Hey everyone!

I'm sorry my blog updates haven't been consistent and the same every week, however my schedule is going to be every Saturday, unless I change it. I'm also sorry that this post is uploaded a day late, I didn't have enough time to finish it for Saturday.

Anyway, I thought I would show you some of my favourite products and things I have been loving throughout June. Here are all of my June favourites!



Firstly I have a beauty product.  This month I purchased the No7 Extreme Length mascara and loved it ever since I first wore it.  For a while I had been looking for a mascara that wasn't clumpy and also added length to lashes, and this mascara is not clumpy at all.  I find that this mascara is great for everyday wear, and for a natural look. This is definitely one of my new favourite mascaras!



My second June favourite is a skincare product.  I have always used Simple moisturisers, however in the past I have tried a few other brand's moisturisers, and oth…
