Day Out At The Zoo

I told you I'd be back on Friday and here I am ;) Recently, I was looking through pictures on my laptop and came across these pictures I took in the easter holidays when I went to the zoo and I thought I'd share them with you. I am not usually a zoo person at all I absolutely hate seeing animals in cages, you could argue that its the best for them but it's still like they could be running free but instead there locked up. Anyway, enough of my opinion, I went because my little sister really wanted to go and she really wanted me to come... It was hard to say no, as then you feel bad is you do, so I just thought what do I have to loose.?

My day went like this, my sister started getting really excited in the car which was really sweet and cute. Then we went inside and saw all the animals. I'm still amazed how hunters or just people want to kill animals, they are the most precious things, what did we do to deserve them?! I saw it all from giraffes to tigers to penguins. My favourite was definitely the orangutang, I just think they are so sweet. We got to feed the elephants which were so cool, sadly we missed feeding the giraffes. Anyway, I shall let you enjoy some of the pictures I took.

Revision Guide

So I thought of this, as the reason I haven't been very active, which I'm very sorry about, is because of school, tests and revising. Therefore I thought as I've been doing loads of revision, and found some really good apps and websites I thought I'de share them with you! Everyone has to revise and if you have a good site and app it just makes it more enjoyable, I thought I'd just give you a heads up and hopefully this will help you with school....

Books: Personally, I really adore the fact of working from a textbook, however sometimes I don't understand it very well but when I do I love it and i really try. I find its a lot better than working from a screen. I love the AQA GCSE ones you always see in WHSmith I find they are the best and cover everything you need, also include practise questions.

Websites: I find going online the most helpful though to be honest, its just easier when everything is explained to you, however at times it is a bit confusing as theres like a thousand different websites for one thing, and some are never good websites, so at time you do get a bit overwhelmed.

I found the website Memrise, this is great especially for languages, if your learning one it helps with your listening, speaking, translating and writing. It also has other things too but people mostly use it for languages. Its a really helpful website, its also an app too.
Also GetRevising I love as you can get past papers which is so important, because as people say 'Practise makes perfect' and you should improve until your at the best of your ability.
This isn't a website to revise from but I always think being organised is really important, and this website does really cute printable calendars and organisers, i find they really make you want to work so you can fill it out. I found this really helpful, I've been printing them out loads, they also look so tumblr! ;)

Quizlet is an app, which you can make your own flashcards, also browse other peoples thats they have made which I find is really helpful, as flashcards definitely help me remember stuff.
Khan Academy is an app which covers everything and also explains in videos and it has practise questions, this app has basically been savour to me.
Finally- Fit Brain, this isn't a revising app but I always find its really good to excersise your brain when you aren't revising so it keeps your brain working.

Other: I also love watching videos to motivate me and I found this amazing youtube channel which is Study With Jess, she's helped me so much and you should definitely go check her channel out its really helpful.
Also a tip its better to work with classical music with no voices as its not as distracting and you can really concentrate. Also don't forget to get comfy and always try to revise as soon as you get back from school, as your still in the school mood.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope it helped in any way. Leave me comment of your favourite app/website you use to revise from, I'd really appreciate it :) I will see you on Thursday, I'm thinking of having another upload day like Saturday...?? Tell me what you think, so it would be Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays? I don't know let me know what you think. Remember don't get to stressed about school. Everything will be fine. See you soon

Mini Haul

Today I went into town, I didn't buy much however I did buy somethings, but I didn't want to spend much, as I'm trying to save up. Therefore I'm trying to be good and not buy anything/much. Although I did let some slip but you have to treat yourself once a while, so I treated myself as I haven't bought anything for months, so I am pretty proud. Anyway, so I popped into town with my friend and bought a few things I needed. I thought I'd share them with you...

2 BarryM Nail Polishes- Black and White
First I got 2 nail polishes, these are just basic colours as I always think white and black look so good on everyone else and I felt like I was missing out, and I had wanted them for a long time and I want to try with my nails more and paint them. I do think you need at least 2 coats with white especially or its a bit faint and streaky. Also a tip; Put your nails under cold water, they dry quicker. And at the moment its if you buy one get half price at Superdrug.

Soap & Glory Body Spray
I got a new body spray as I had run out of my old one and I was in real need of a new one. This is the classic scent of Soap&Glory, so I thought its not anything too strong. Personally, I am very disappointed with this product. Normally Soap & Glory products are really good, however I would not recommend the spray. I find the spray smells really chemically at first especially and doesn't smell like the normal scent it says it should be. I hate to say bad things, but its true,  and i do feel bad but overall I was very disappointed!

Random Stuff
I finally picked up a few random things I needed like the classical things for school. I picked up a a3 pad of paper as I really needed a3, because I couldn't keep on sticking two a4 pieces together all my life, so I thought why not, I'm here, also as I have been needing to make posters recently and you can't really make them on a4, I just needed it. I barely ever go into town and I needed it so yeah... I picked up some 'white blue tac' which is so I can stick posters on my wall and it won't make a mark on the wall as the blue ones leave a blue mark, therefore the white ones i think leave a white mark, sort of, but my walls are white so it won't matter, I can't wait to put some posters up, I might even do a post on it. ;) Finally I got a pencil case as I didn't have one and I've really been trying to be organised and I thought a pencil case would motivate me. Plus, I just wanted a plain one so you can see what you have and I just prefer them really! :)

I hope you enjoyed this post. I'm really so so so sorry that I haven't been uploading too frequently but school has just got crazy. I really enjoy blogging however school is a priority but I am trying. Thank you for sticking around I really appreciate it. I may even have a little extra post coming up soon, so stay tuned! I'll see you soon!

My New Favourite Dress

Recently I went into London to see the play Thriller, which was really good by the way. It finished earlier than we thought, as we booked the table for a bit later, we had some time to kill. So we went walking around and we went into Zara Kids to look for some clothes for my little sister. When we were in there this particular beautiful dress caught my eye and I thought at first, ohh I wish I was like 8 against I could fit into that Zara Kids dress. However I looked again and this dress looked bigger than the other clothes and I walked over, saw it was 13years and I thought 'I think I might actually be able to fit into this' and it was on sale, what more could you want?! Therefore, I tried it on and it fitted me almost perfectly! I was over the moon, its my new favourite dress and I thought I'de share it with you, as its so pretty... Sadly its not on the website, however it may still be in the shops. Its a swing dress and has a really cute pattern, full of colours- blues and reds. I love it. Its really flattering and flows so well.
Heres the dress...

This dress is sort of similar but not really the same at all, but I tried it was the closest:
I hope you enjoyed this post.
I shall see you on Thursday at 8:30pm British Time.

Winter to Spring

I'm sure we all created some beautiful memories in Winter but its time... Spring is on its way and winter is slowly going, although the other day it did start snowing?! For some reason, I always think Spring is a odd season, as no one really gets very excited for Spring, which is really sad. Its true though, if I were to forget any season it would probably be spring :( However I thought I would't write this post to make me more excited for spring as there are actually a lot of brilliant things in Spring. Also I find spring is a happy season, I don't know why but it always pops in my mind when I think of spring!

Reasons I love Spring:
Flowers start to bloom- I always feel like flowers make you happy and the famous daffodils bloom
Trees start to get their leaves back- Which I find always makes the world more lively 
Colour starts to appear again- Colour always makes me smile and it makes life bright
Easter and chocolate ;)- Of course the chocolate eggs are a classic and very yummy
More light in day- I feel more productive when its lighter and I can do more things in a day
The temperature starts to rise- Which means you don't have to wrap up so much
Strawberry picking- This is a classic and you always eat as much strawberries as you can
Spring Cleaning- This is a chance for a fresh start, to clear out and start all fresh

They are only a few. Dn't be afraid to comment more down below. I love reading all the comments.
I hope you enjoyed and I shall see you soon!

Happy Valentines Day

Hello Happy Valentines Day!
Today is the day... Its Valentine Day. I hope you are all having a lovely day with love ones or just on your own, whatever, just a nice day genuinely. Personally, I don't mean to be a downer but I, me personally, I'm not a massive fan of Valentines day, I just find it too over commercialised, but I know some people who love it so I just wanted to wish you a nice day. Don't forget to treat yourself aswell. Just remember if you don't have anyone, its all fine because your way too special, I don't have anyone either don't worry and don't rush. If you do have some one lucky you, treasure this day! Still don't forget to tell them you love them, and not just on Valentine day.

I shall see you soon

A Sick Day Routine

So everybody has those days when the are really ill and have to stay at home, and you expect it to be all fun when actually its the opposite, well for me, I actually want to go to school. Being ill such a horrible thing, when your fine you want to stay at home, however when your actually ill and stay at home you want to go to school. Its confusing, I know. Well anyway, today I am ill, so I decided its a perfect opportunity to write blog posts, and tell you what I do on my 'Sick Day Routine'
I normally sleep for a lot of the time as I'm usually really tired and ill, so all you want to do is sleep, but thats quite boring. Also I always have a shower once I get up as I always find if you clean yourself you always feel better as you feel a lot better about yourself. An essential is you must get comfy: get a hot water bottle, a hot chocolate, just give yourself a treat as your ill. This is your day to relax; get your laptop out and do whatever you want, maybe have a youtube marathon, watch a movie... Whatever you want.
My essentials are always some warm nice socks, hot chocolate of course, warm comfy clothes; jogging bottoms and a comfy jumper and top, movie and some facial wipes along with your favourite fragrance, as that always makes you feel better and more normal. Personally, for me I hate missing out so I have to know whats going on at school and look at it at home as I hate being behind, I know thats strange but its me! That is what I do and some essentials, I hope you aren't sick especially over the holiday.

See you soon, I may be posting more as its the half term. Shhhh. So don't forget to stop by.

Baking Triple Choc Cookies

So I was in a baking mood and I just decided I shall bake. I wanted to try a new recipe and I thought what a better idea than to try Tanya Burrs Cookies. They are amazing, its hard on the outside but chewing and soft inside its like the perfect combination and they taste amazing! I have tried the milk and chocolate chip cookies but not these triple chocolate ones. I do have to say I do prefer the milk and chocolate chip. However, they both taste so good. I got the recipe from her book, which I recently got 'Love Tanya' which is so good, also I believe she may be releasing a new book just with recipes?! I could be wrong?? You may correct me. It would be so good, I'd definitely buy it, she could be a professional baker, I've never tried anything like them. Anyway, the cookies are delicious you have to try them...

This is how you make them:

You will need:
200g butter
300g caster sugar
1 large egg
275g self-raising flour
75g cocoa powder
a little dash of milk
a large bar of milk chocolate
a large bar of white chocolate
a large bar of dark chocolate  (you don't have to add all 3)
Preheat your oven on to 200 degrees celsius
Mix together your butter and sugar
Crack in your egg
Stir in all the dry ingredients
Add a dash of milk if your mixture is looking dry
Break up all of your chocolate and throw it in the bowl full of mixture then mix it all together
Line 2 trays with baking paper (the cookies will spread in the oven so don’t place them close together)
Break the mixture into balls and place them onto your trays, bear in mid they will grow
Pop them into the oven for 11 minutes – However when you get them out they will not look cooked, it is very tempting to leave them in for longer but they’ll be hard and overcooked once they are cool, and won't be as nice. Take your cookies out after 11 minutes and leave them to cool for about 30 minutes.
Now enjoy a biscuit, you will now be amazed!
I hope you enjoyed. I will see you on thursday at 8:30pm British time.
See you soon

The Lake District

I was looking through my old pictures and I came across this folder "The LakeDistrict" I was looking through it and as I was, I was thinking of how beautiful it is and how photogenic everything is, even the wall are so rustic and are just made with such beauty. For me,I always find it so fun, going some place new. Being in the same place gets boring and its so cool to do something different. In the Lake District, we do a lot of walking which of course is great for you and you see some fantastic views and of course theres a picture opportunity around every corner. So you can always guarantee some great pictures, and you can explore. Its always so fun and is such a good holiday destination for the family, especially if your active, its perfect. However you can get tired, walking up mountains, so bring plenty of water and food!

I hope you enjoyed this quick post, now I thought I'd just share with you some of the photos and show you the beauty of the place.
Also, I'm so sorry that I didn't post on Tuesday and Thursday. It will never happen again, I've just been really busy with school. I'll definitely do extra posts this week to make up. I'm so sorry
See you soon,

I just thought I'd write this quick post, as I decided to get Snapchat. I really wanted a way to communicate with you guys. Without jumping right in the deep end head first, and its more chilled back than actually only blogging/uploading on set days and I find it quite formal, while Snapchat is more laid back, which is great. I thought Snapchat was a nice starter than going in with Twitter or Instagram straight away. I definitely want to get them sometime but not straight away. So I decided to get Snapchat and I'll post stuff on my story and snap you, of course, as I want to learn more about you. I just think Snapchat is perfect

I am 'mifantasy' on Snapchat. I'd love to chat to you, so if you want add me and we can talk, I'm really excited!
I'll see you Tuesday! Have a nice weekend.

5 Tips For Revising

So,I'm not sure about you but I excel at some subjects but NOT at others at all! Thats when the thought popped into my head... I'm just the person to give advise.. jks... I'm not at all. However I am going to give it a good dam try! :) I'm still in school, I get it, I know how hard it is, so I thought I'd help you be more successful with revising. To be honest, I think I should take some of my tips on board too. First of all, I am no expert trust me... But I like collecting different tips, so I thought I'd  just share them with you and they may not be any help to you or they might?! I don't know.
I get easily distracted, so this one for my is perfect, I always find my mind wandering off, especially my hands seem to often reach to my phone... 
1) Turn off devices
I am really bad at managing time, for me I created a schedule and made it all pretty and put it up on my wall and then I know when I have to do it, as I'm basically a time freak and like everything to be on time, so if I plan something and don't do it, I just get really.. you know ;)
2) Set a set time when you are going to revise
Remember, this is your chance in life. Also your social media is here forever, your grades are important they will stick with you forever. I can never do work if I don't feel like working...
3) Get motivated
I personally love quotes, they really inspire me.
If I'm not aiming towards anything I think "Whats the point?!"
4) Set yourself a goal
Once you reach your goal you feel really happy and good about yourself and its a challenge which is fun and it makes you work for it.
If I'm not comfy, I seem to be uncomfortable and fijit a lot and can't concentrate.. So do what you want to make yourself comfy, then hopefully you should be more ready to work.
5) Find a comfy spot
5 Revision Tips DONE! Also I just thought I'd add one more: For me buy some new stationary and books, that really makes you want to work, as you want to use them, which makes you WANT to work!
Final one I promise ;) Make sure you're organised.. I'm the least organised person EVER, I'm always late but I try not to be, as when your organised you have a clearer mind.

I Hope these helped, or I just entertained you for a few minutes or just thank you for being here!
Tell me if you want another post on school/revising/tips//////... BTW Feel free to rant about your bad subjects I'm sure we can join in and agree ;D I am currently about to leave for parents evening wish me luck.
I'll see you on Tuesday 8:30pm british time. See you soon! Hang on, can I just say thank you, I've really been enjoying blogging and I love reading through the comments. I love you! 
Happy Revising!

Smile, You are beautiful <3

A Walk In The Park

Today is quite a casual post, but I think you might enjoy it... I went for a stroll around the park and I decided to take some photos, as I thought this might be a nice post to write...
When I was walking around, I started thinking, just thinking... I always find the park to be a nice place, where your not caught up in the circle of stress and life, its almost like an escape route, which I think everyone need so often. The park its calm. If you want you can just sit, breathe in and out slowly and feel the fresh air go in and out your lungs taking deep breaths, watching the ducks or the lake or even time walk on by, just relaxing. Theres no cars whizzing round creating multiple noises, which really are distracting and there is no way to become calm. For me its a place where you can just go if you feel a bit anxious although, you/I may not suffer with anxiety you can still feel anxious sometimes. You can sit there watching people play, hearing people laugh with smiles on their face. To be honest, sometimes the odd tear ngl! Mostly happy people running around playing with their friends, for me it releases any angry feelings or whatever and just goes, when you look at other people filing, it melts my heart! 
Which leads me onto my next point, on this particular day I was having a bad day, lets say. It got my thinking though looking at everyone else... You may looking at someone and you wouldn't know if they were hurting. I heard that somewhere on the online world. Its true! It got me thinking, you don't know whats happened in the person who is sitting next to you or just walked past. This just shows how you should treat everyone with kindness as you don't know whats gone on in there life, they may be hurting and you wouldn't know. Always be nice and treat people how you would want to be treated! I know any of you here wouldn't be mean as you all seem so nice. It did just get me thinking.

I hope you enjoyed this post, it was something different, did you like it?? I will see you Thursday 8:30pm British time. Also what do you think about me creating an Instagram page? 
See you soon
