Let’s talk about bullying. It’s better out of your head than in it. 

This week has been Anti-Bullying Week throughout the UK, so I kinda just want to talk about it. Whether it’s happening to you or someone you know, face-to-face or online I want this post to be helpful so you can make your voice heard.

Personally I feel that everyone goes through some sort of  bullying at some stage in their lives, especially when they are younger. You go through questioning everything that you do and whether you're going to be bullied for it or not and whether or not anyone's gonna pick up on it or say anything to you. But we need to stop living in constant fear of bullies and stand out against them.

Bullying can leave you feeling anxious, sad, lonely and sometimes depressed but it doesn't have to be that way which is why I've got some tips to help anyone through it.

#1 See the best in you

Bring out the best in you by reflecting on the good stuff in your life. I know for a fact it's not easy to do as you're made to feel like nothing is right with who you are and what you're doing. But everyone has something that they like about themselves. Even if it's something silly like making a really good cup of tea.

#2 Look to the future 

Keep looking forward and imagine that day when bullying isn't around in your life anymore and you're striving for something that you really want and the idea of who you what it be. So if you keep hold of that idea it gives you something to keep going for.

#3 Reward yourself

If you've achieved things but also if you've done anything that's positive. As we are always so harsh on ourselves when we make a mistake but when it's goes right we never give ourselves the credit for it.

#4 Do things that make you happy

Listen to music, read your favourite book, watch movies. Or make a list entitled "things that make me happy" and write down all the things that make you smile, and don't stop till the page is full. Because trust me there is a hundred positive things that make you more positive and upbeat for each negative thing.

Finally... Make someone feel better by small random acts of kindness. Smile at people in the street, it might make their day. Or message / tweet someone who says their having a bad day, by saying 'keep smiling, things will get better soon x'

Just remember if you're being bullied you're never alone as their is always someone to talk too, whether its family, teachers, a  best friend or someone on the internet. It's better to speak and share you're issue than to keep it bottled up until things get worse.

Move aside Cara Delevingne

I don't tend to talk about my studies on here much but for my A2 Media course I needed to get original photography for my own made up female celebrity who will feature on my magazine front cover and article.

Last week I had organised a mini "photoshoot" with a friend of mine, and our outcome was pretty good, I was happy with the shots we took and so was she. We based ourselves in one of the studios at Razzamataz Theatre School, cranked up the music and had a laugh while we took photos. All I want to do is share a few of my favourite photos from the shoot.

This or that | Beauty Tag

I was searching around for different tags and I came across this one, which I'm guessing is pretty popular as a lot of people have done it. I thought that I would do the 'this or that, beauty tag' so you can all get to know me better. I love doing tag posts and it looked incredibly fun to do!


Blush or bronzer- I tend to use bronzer more as it just gives you a warmer glow than blusher does.
Lip gloss or lipstick- Definitely lipstick. It's just more practical than lip gloss, especially when the wind blows your hair and it gets stuck to your lips and it's just a disaster.
Eye liner or mascara- Eyeliner any day because for me just sets me up for the day and they say never mess with a girl who wears winged eyeliner.
Foundation or concealer- I use a matte mousse instead if that classes?
Neutral or color eye shadow- Neutral, it's what I use on a day to day basis as I fear coloured eye shadows take me back to the younger me when I wore blue eyeshadow *cringe*
Pressed or loose eye shadows- Pressed as it's much more easier to control.
Brushes or sponges- Brushes, I've never tried sponges yet...

Long or short- Short nails, which aren't too short neither are they too long.
Acrylic or natural- Natural, I feel acrylics just ruin your nails.
Brights or darks- Dark or neutral colours, as they go with most outfits which means one less thing to worry about when going out.
Flower or no flower- No flower, just keep it simple.

Perfume or body spray- Perfume, although I do love the Hollister body sprays which smell like summer and the beachy.
Lotion or body butter- Body butter as it gives you softer skin.
Body wash or soap- Body wash (I don't have a reason why).
Lush or other bath company- Lush products smell and look amazing, so why not!

Jeans or sweat pants- Always black skinny jeans if I'm going out places but sweat pants are just easier and comfier at home.
Long sleeve of short- I prefer short sleeved tshirts.
Dresses or skirts- I like both, depends on what the day is, occasion and weather,
Stripes or plaid- Plaid, but I wear both.
Flip flops or sandals- Flips flops for ease but sandals definitely look nicer.
Scarves or hats- I used to hate hats but recently I like wearing hats more, so hats.
Studs or dangly earrings-If you've read one of my earlier posts you'll know I have a lot ear piercings and since that post I've had another 3 piercings (oops) so I'm gonna go studs as it's a lot easier to manage when you got loads of piercings.
Necklaces or bracelets- Can I say both?
Heels or flats- Flats, give me a pair of Vans anyday and I'll conquer the world.
Jacket or hoodie- Again for comfort hoodies but jackets like my denim or Harrington if I'm going out.
Forever 21 or New Look? Forever 21, is one of my favourite shops for reasonable priced clothes that are perfect for the time of year.
Abercombie or Hollister? Hollister (and that's not because of their bags, okay).

Curly or straight- I have natural 'wavy' hair but I always straighten it.
Bun or ponytail- I rarely tie my hair up but when I do it's a ponytail.
Hair spray or gel- hairspray (I mean who even uses hair gel)
Long or short- Since cutting my hair short I love it even more!
Light or dark- I'm dark brunette so dark
Side sweep or full fringe- Side fringe.
Up or down- Down unless it needs tied up.

Rain or shine- Shine, the sun instantly makes me smile.
Summer or winter- Summer, Summer, Summer!
Fall or spring- Y'all should know this, fall because who doesn't love getting out scarfs and boots to go walking through the autumn leaves.
Chocolate or vanilla- Vanilla.

If you managed to get to the end of this post then well done, I didn't realise it was sooo long. I tag anyone who wants  to do it! Thank you.

Sparks, explosions, flames

Remember remember the 5th of November, also known as traditionally, Bonfire Night! This time of year has to be one of my favourite times of the year! I mean who doesn't love fireworks, sparklers and bonfires. Even just the thought of the sparkles and a warm roaring fire just gets me all excited.

Typical British weather it was raining so we wrapped up warm in scarfs, hats and boots and went out with pretty sparklers and had fun then headed to the bonfire and firework display. There is something very magical about fireworks and sparklers, they instantly fill me with happiness.


I hope you all had a fun night last night whatever you did!
