Friday notes & happy halloween!♥





Hello everybody and happy halloween today i thought i would do a chat style post today as they are quite popular on my blog. This morning i have been lounging around in my onesie (there so comfy i just never want to get out of it). But finally i'm up and ready for the day. After the weekend its the end of the half term and its back to reality, but i honestly dont care i dont mind college and its life we have a couple of days of then its back to normal. I'm all ready thinking about what course i should take next year i will be doing media again just a higher level. I love doing media it really interests me i would love to gain experience in editing videos because if i ever chose to start a youtube channel it would come in handy to know. At first i was really shy to do things like record my voice for a radio task but thinking about it, why should i be everybody else is doing it. Now im not bothered at all! i find it funny listening to myself. My plans for halloween are not that much i want to watch the Adams family film thats the best haloween film. Halloween was the best when i was younger getting dressed up and all excited to go trick or treating. When you get older halloween it's no where near as fun:(




This afternoon I went and had the nicest latte ever I love coffee, such a coffee addict!
 





                                                      My cats are so lazy!




Woke jasper up taking the picture!


This is all my cats do all day pretty much is sleep and eat!
look at sooty here he sleeps so weird aha.
Anybody else's cats lazy as mine because there snoring away next to me right now!


Hope you have a fun Halloween and weekend let me know what are your plans for tonight in the comments

Be more of a confident blogger ♥



Yesterday i did a post which was 20 thoughts during my time of blogging, i wrote on my list that i get really worried if people i know find my blog. I got a few comments on that post and people agreed saying they feel the same. So i thought i would address this problem with a post. I have Insatagram and facebook and twitter all of the social media platforms! but i do not advertise my blog on any of them because  i always have it in my head that my friends may find it stupid. The odd persons knows about it and they think its a good idea. But why should i think like this! i might get the odd laugh but honestly so what i'm doing something meaningful with my life. If they want to laugh then let them its what you want to do so carry on with it. As long as it makes you happy which it really does for me then that's all that matters!. If there true genuine friends then they will support it. My goal is to become a lot more confident about my blog to get back on my twitter or create a new one. And start to advertise my posts it might introduce new readers to my blog and that's all i want, for people to enjoy reading my blog!.

Everything is dominated by social media!
Take a look at celebrities or big bloggers they all use social media and advertise there latest post/albums or what ever there doing. The reason they do this is because they know everybody today has twitter/facebook/instagram so they know people are going to see it. Then people share it to there friends they share it and it goes all they way around. This is the best thing for  a new blog like mine i just need to build the confidence up to do it.

Lets all be more confident bloggers
This is something a lot of us need to do there's people reading this probably thinking the same and why let other people get in your way! Its something i'm working on.

Don't do what i did at the beginning 
At the beginning i used to create blogs put one post on then delete the whole blog, i just always had it in my head that people would think its a stupid idea. But i do not think that at all now, i love blogging and enjoy it i would never think of deleting this i'm so happy with how its turned out.

                             






Do you have the same issues do you need to be more of a confident blogger let me know in the comments

20 thoughts during my time of blogging♥




So I was reading Taylors blog at another fashion fanatic    and she did a great post its was called 25
thoughts during my blogging time. I thought it was a really good idea, soon as I read it I really wanted to do it myself so I thought I would mention her in this post as it wasn't really my idea this post. You should go check out her blog its really good.

Going back to August when I first started my blog, I some how had it in my head that blogging would be so simple and I could blog every day! Flash back to now I do not think blogging is easy at all there's so much time that goes in to a blog post there's planning , picture taking , writing and editing this can take up a lot of time so its a lot to blog everyday!. Anyway here is my list.

1. The stress of the layout, There's all these computer terms with the layout widgets, navbars , html codes and css codes. At first I look at it like it was some sort of foreign language. I did what anybody else would do and GOOGLED IT. Slowly it started to make sense.

2. 'Omg why doesn't my blog look like that' Is exactly what I say when I look at some other peoples blogs. I just think to my self I have no idea how they even got it looking like that I'm so bad with computers!

3. Right blog post done, why isn't nobody reading it no views , no comments , no shares is it really that bad. Is what I thought at the beginning but it all comes with time you have to get your blog out there and get it noticed.

4.  Omg , there is so many people with the same kind of blog as me!

5. What do I write about today I have no idea!! this blogging everyday thing is not going to happen.

6.  What if people who I know find out about my blog will they laugh? (at first I set up a blog put one post on then deleted everything)

7.  Maybe one day I could start a youtube channel.

8.  I wonder how Zoella got so big and recognised .

9.  I always think my blog background needs improving (im never happy with it haha)

10. My make up looks good today maybe I could do a fotd post?, gets camera out to take a picture omg I look so bad that is not how I look in the mirror. (puts camera away and thinks of another post)

11. A comment on my blog OMG SOMEBODY FINDS MY POSTS INTERESTING!

12. A new follower OMG IM SO HAPPY THIS IS THE BEST DAY EVER.

13 . A new share OMG SO PEOPLE DO LIKE MY POSTS.

14.  I love blogging it makes me happy.

15. I wonder if I still have this blog when I'm 20? I hope so.

16.  Ooh a new make up review, yes I need to go to boots to buy that now.

17. I could of picked a better blog name, oh well to late.

18.  I could just blog about my cute cats everyday, I don't think people would be happy about that though. (haha)

19. People from all over the world could be looking at my blog, omg!

20.  I cant believe at first I deleted all my posts and thought they were stupid, I love blogging now and im so glad I stuck to it.

                So there are my thoughts on blogging let me know what you think in the comments.

All about my hair! ft old pictures♥

Today I thought I would do a post completely about my hair what colours have I been do I dye it now how do I keep it healthy etc.. So lets get started. The first time I dyed my hair was having it highlighted which I loved I couldn't find any pictures to show you which is a shame:(. I had my natural hair colour which was a caramel brown with blonde streaks I was so happy with it, I did not do it my self a hairdresser did it because I did not want yellow/orange hair. Anyway a couple of years later the highlights where grown out and I didn't touch any sort of dye until 2012 when I dyed my hair completely JETBLACK. I had it that colour for about 3 years I loved it at the time it made my hair look shiny and healthy, but I wanted to lighten my hair up and make it look more natural as black made me look washed out and pale. SO I thought It will be so easy to get rid of black hair I will get some blonde bleach then a brown dye!. Omg what was a thinking I made such a mess to my hair I ended up bleaching my hair 3times and putting at least 5 box dyes on it!, my hair at this point felt very dry. So I started deep conditioning my hair and taking extra care of it. But I knew it needed cutting so I went and lucky I only needed abit of my hair off  hardly anything. So now I had a lovely brown hair  colour a total change from my jet black locks.
Me with jetblack hair (this is my school shirt by the way haha I don't wear horrible shirts)
I used to have a fringe too!

I have no pictures of me when I changed my hair to brown but I remember it wasn't a big change it hardly showed up on camera!. Anyway about Christmas time 2013 I decided I wanted to go red.

At first it was this dark red colour I wasn't happy with this because I wanted BRIGHT red so
I carried on dying and dying and dying!



It then went this bright red colour ( I also went through a phase of wanting my nose pierced if you look
closely you will see I have it in but then took it out a couple of weeks later it did not suit me haha)
I have totally changed now!!

My hair was so badly damaged at this point I had to have a lot cut of it because it snapped of I cried because I hated my hair
I then gave my hair a long long rest let the red fade then a year later I stripped it and It went back to my natural colour then
I left it like that for months  and it grew a lot from the length I had to have it cut too





This is my hair colour now its fully recovered from all the dying and is really healthy. I do still dye it
but very rarely I dye it dark blonde from nice n easy. I dye it every 2/3 months
I hardly ever dye it now ive learnt from my mistakes
to keep it healthy I use hair masks get it trimmed every 6-8 weeks
drink lots of water and eat healthy most importantly don't over dye it!!!

So that's my hair history of dying I've learnt a lot on the way what colours have you been let me know in the comments

UPDATE: How is your confidence today?♥

Last month I did a blog post about how to be confident and got some good feedback on it. It actually turned out to be my most popular post which I was very happy to hear. So I thought it must of helped some people out, so why not let you know how my confidence is today and how those tips have helped me. (If you haven't read my confidence post read it here).

                                           So how Is your confidence today? 
              I feel I have changed so much since I posted the confidence post those tips helped me a lot. The main issue with me was being shy, i found it very hard to speak to new people. Since i started college I've been pushing my self more and more to go up and just speak to people with confidence. When you have confidence in your self it shows and you become more approachable.  I also explained how Confidence = success because your feeling great about your self and most importantly thinking positive then more and more good things come to you.
                                                  
                                              I think differently now!

                           Instead of feeling down and rubbish about yourself and forever moaning, why not turn it around, be positive about your life think of all the good things you have to be great full for. When you think this way people will start coming up to you more to talk to. Because they will think what a lovely person always happy and smiling, lets think about it though really your not going to want to speak to somebody who's down and moaning are you.   "positive mind positive vibes positive life" i still live by this quote as i said in my last post, you should too!. I try and do new things what are outside of my comfort zone a couple of months ago going up and speaking to new people would be hard thing to me, so to achieve that is so good to me personally, the more things you do and achieve out side your comfort zone the more confidence you gain.  I just would like to tell people who are going through the same thing as I did, that its so possible to over come it. I can give you as much advice as I have and that's all good, but you have to get out there and do the things for yourself I promise you it will help in the long run.

                                        Remember when I said your not born with confidence

So do you remember on my last post when I explained that your not born with confidence? well that's so true obviously, its all about gaining it your self. You gain more and more experience the more you grow up. As I said last time (I sort of feel I'm repeating my self a lot on here haha) your not on your own there Is so many people today with confidence issues, you may not believe It but even big celebrities suffer with it. That is why I addressed this problem as it's such a big thing today
                                                           

A quote to live by

 Have you read my how to be confident post did help you and is this post useful let me know in the comments

Sunday notes 26.10.14♥.

Today has been a lovely day i went up to see my family which i love doing, its always nice to spend time with your family. My little cousins make me laugh so much i always think spending time with your family makes you feel really lucky to have people around who love and care about you, it always puts me in a good mood. Is it just me but because the clocks went back today just seems to be dragging?, Haha but when the clocks go back its truly nearly winter which means not long to Christmas which excites so much I love Christmas! ive been listening to Christmas songs already(should I even admit that). Now the weather has got so much colder ive been living in my pink coat which I love so much. I remember buying it when the weather was warm and being excited for winter to wear it. I defiantly love autumn/winter a lot more than summer there's just so much to look forward to.  Oh and I've kind of started of my addiction for costa coffee again, I used to have so much of it. I've been loving there hot chocolates there gorgeous!
