How to be Me (a complete and utter idiot)

July 31, 2014 0 Comments

From what I have established about my life is that I'm a complete and utter idiot. I sometimes wonder how I even have friends because if I could be friends with myself I'm sure it wouldn't go down too well... I mean I would annoy myself beyond the point of it being bearable. 

So here are some tips if you want to be just like me (a complete idiot).
  1. When it comes to having you photo taken, don't look serious nor happy. Look like you've either been possessed or you've had too many sweeties and are completely bonkers because of all the additives and E-numbers malarkey. 
  2. Say foolish things - I'm notorious for saying things without rational thought. For example the other day I asked my dad how to grow an apple tree and he replied the seeds from the apple. I mean I didn't believe it and I still don't fully believe. As a child I always did put the seeds in the garden and they never grew into a beautiful meadow of apple trees. 
  3. Act like the smallest things are the biggest of disasters - I go overboard over the smallest of things. For example if a bug flew into my room I would refuse to go within miles of the room before I am convinced it is gone. 
  4. Don't apply makeup properly - It doesn't matter if your eye-shadow isn't blended in properly and you look like a 3 year old has done your makeup. After all the only important thing is that you are confident and happy with your appearance. At the end of the day I'm no makeup artist so I'll just leave the makeup business to the professionals.
  5. Do things because of impulse - I do things without the slightest thought of the consequences. Almost like that 'You only live once' malarkey everyone used to believe in. Again, this is notorious of me. Impulsive behaviours is what lead me to the bright colours in my hair.
  6. Listen to anything generic - I don't keep up with all things music. When I find an artist I like I will listen to them forever. So I just listen to the top charts so I think I'm all hip when it comes to musical taste.
  7. Eat your sorrows away - Eat anything remotely chocolately or of a ice-cream substance and just devour until you've drowned your sorrows in fat.
  8. Don't open you eyes in the sunshine - I literally cannot open my eyes in the sunlight so nail your squinting eyes. I probably need lessons in how to keep my eyes open when I'm exposed to the sun.
  9. Do weird things - Unexplainable actions are great, no one asks. I do things my friends classify as a 'Molly thing' like running around like a riot or rolling across the grass. I must have lost my marbles ages ago.
  10. Do anything for comedic circumstances - Whenever I want to do something ridiculous I do it and post it to any media platform with a justifiable explanation so I don't feel silly when really I am. 
TOP TIP // Just be silly and live life without regret. If people don't find you interesting and fun just say

You know you're petite when...

July 29, 2014 0 Comments

1) Shops don't cater to your size because they want to provide for people bigger than you like Matalan which caters for size 8 upwards even though their size 8 is still pretty big. Primark, Select and New Look are also culprits for sizing their clothes up especially the size 6's which could obviously fit a size 8.
2) You are able to fit into kids sections resulting in cheaper clothing, win win win! Though sometimes the kids parents give you a look of disapproval.
3) Body-con skirts and dresses look big on you and give you no shape whatsoever.
4) Dresses and skirts are way longer than they were on the mannequin because you're way too short.
5) People associate you with being younger than you really are because of height and weight.
6) You feel really offended when guys say they like curvy girls than slim girls. Talk about body-shaming.
7) You are "cute" because of your body.
8) People say "wow, you're short". Like I didn't already know.
9) Your feet just about or don't reach the floor.
10) Pay children's rates on holidays, day trips and bus fares.
11) Having to have your trousers altered because they're too long.

Reading List

July 28, 2014 4 Comments
I'm starting to love reading books especially fictions as they are an escape from reality. 

Paper Towns - John Green
Quentin has always loved Margo Roth Spiegelman, for Margo (and her adventures) are the stuff of legend at their high school. So when she one day climbs through his window and summons him on an all-night road trip of revenge he cannot help but follow. But the next day Margo doesn't come to school and a week later she is still missing. Q soon learns that there are clues in her disappearance ...and they are for him. But as he gets deeper into the mystery - culminating in another awesome road trip across America - he becomes less sure of who and what he is looking for. Masterfully written by John Green, this is a thoughtful, insightful and hilarious coming-of-age story
I've been wanting to read it as it is said that John Green books get repetitive and I would like to read it to see whether is any proof within the statement. 

Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephan Chbosky
Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
Seeing as I've watched the movie I think it's time that I read the book as I enjoyed it so much. The story is empowering and I really feel for Charlie as he is misunderstood by peers of his age. The book must be better than the movie. 

Diary of a Young Girl - Anne Frank
The author and her family fled the horrors of Nazi occupation by hiding in the back of a warehouse in Amsterdam for two years with another family and a German dentist. Aged thirteen when she went into the secret annexe, she kept a diary.

The books seems so inspiring and is sure to educate me about the traumatic life she led. 

Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher
"Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher is a phenomenal "New York Times" number one bestseller. It tackles the aftermath of teen suicide from the critically acclaimed young adult author Jay Asher - perfect for fans of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars". You can't stop the future. You can't rewind the past. The only way to learn the secret to press play. Clay Jensen returns home to find a strange package with his name on it. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker - his classmate and first love - who committed suicide. Hannah's voice explains there are thirteen reasons why she killed herself and Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. All through the night, Clay keeps listening - and what he discovers changes his life ...Forever. Bestselling US author Jay Asher had the idea for his debut young adult novel "Thirteen Reasons Why" at a museum. Whilst taking an audio tour, he was struck by the eeriness of the voice in his ear - a woman who described everything he was looking at but wasn't there.

When I read this I am sure I won't be able to put it down. The storyline is really intriguing and makes me begin to wonder what drove this girl to suicide.

Truly, Madly, Deadly - Hannah Jayne
When Sawyer’s boyfriend, Kevin, dies in a drunk driving accident, Sawyer is stunned. But that is nothing compared to her distress when she finds a note in her locker that reads, “You’re welcome.” Is it possible that someone else knew about Kevin’s violent tendencies? Who would be so desperate to protect Sawyer? In TRULY, MADLY, DEADLY, author Hannah Jayne weaves a web of suspects, clues and red herrings that will keep readers guessing until the end.
I think out of the books on my reading list this is a more teen content book. The book seems to be full of enigma which would drive the reader to stay interested in the storyline. The note on the locker sends chills down my spine.

Would You Rather?

July 27, 2014 2 Comments

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
Lose palettes and eyeshadows, at least I would be able to use the rest of the beauty products.

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Chop all my hair off, hair grows back and the hair cut off could be donated to someone who really needs it.

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Coral looks more subtle than pink, pink can be taken overboard.

4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Clothes for sure, I'd first head of to Topshop.

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
I think I'd use lipstick as eyeliner. Eyeliner on the lips I don't think will be very pleasant.

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Considering in the UK there is no Sephora, I'm going to change it to boots as that's the closest alternative. I don't shop at MAC so Boots would be more convenient for me.
7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
One eye-shadow so I could change up my lip colour plus I could use a neutral one the lids so it'll be more natural.

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Summer clothes in the winter, it's more comfortable to be cold that hot. Well me personally.

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Bright nails for sure, definitely a favourite of mine.

10.) Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
Give up favourite eye product. I love lippies far too much.

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Ponytails, I love them. Buns always look weird on me. 

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
Never use lipgloss again, I don't like it really.

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
Sharpie them in as long as the colour is brown.

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Live without nail polish would be a lot easier.

My Favourite Blogs

July 26, 2014 14 Comments
The following blogs are my favourites and beneath are genuine people with lovely personalities and would be just as amazing in real life. 

Her blog is ever so lovely. she blogs about beauty and lifestyle and I cannot stop flicking through her blog. I always check it out everyday. Here posts are so real and any teenager can read them and actually enjoy doing so. 

This is a complete biased favourite, being that I know Pauline makes me enjoy her posts. The things she writes about makes me chuckle. I actually cannot take her blog seriously but I'm sure she does likewise. She posts about celebrity trends and her fashion wishlists.

Discovering her blog a couple of weeks ago, I have literally fallen in love with it. She writes incredibly and her beauty posts are on point. She really sells the products she reviews and has a way with words. She keeps me up with the music world also.

Her blog is fantastic for DIY projects. Here ideas are so creative and unique and the finished artefact is absolutely fantastic. Her fashion based posts are always beautiful and so stylish. She deserves more followers and you should definitely check her blog out.

Being that she is a newer blogger she's taken off to blogging with a bang. She is so real and is so interactive which is definitely something I look for in a blog. I love her candle holder DIY as it is so creative and so cute. I love reading her thoughts as you can kind of understand and relate to.

Weekly update #1

July 24, 2014 6 Comments
Miserable selfies, why not?
This week has been pretty chilled out and I know I should post this on Friday but I'm going to be terribly busy packing for my holibobs, so I won't have time but there is a scheduled post, woo!

Monday - Basically this day would seem pretty saddening for the majority of socialites but me, well I'm no socialite. I spent the whole day watching TV shows on Netflix and DVD's like My Family, oh my! It was my favourite childhood TV show, though to parents it was deemed as inappropriate for a 5 year old but hey ho I loved it and was hooked. Now, I'm hooked on it again. The power of television and nostalgia. 

Tuesday - This day was more outgoing and I went to Weston with my grandparents. See post here!

Wednesday - Another lazy day, this is becoming a repetitive thing for me. Anyhow I found out I got the job after 2 rejections for other establishments. How fantastic! I had almost given up on hope of ever getting employed. 

Thursday - Well today I went in the paddling pool fully clothed with my brother because I couldn't wear my swimsuits as I'm on laundry clothes because of my holiday on Saturday. This was after I applied my make-up and curled my hair in style of beachy waves. Oh well. At least this time I didn't look like a panda. 

Friday - I will be packing, oh the joy!

How has your week been?
