Ça roule ma poule // thoughts

Hello everyone,

I hope that you have all had an absolutely splendiferous (yes I made that up) week. Mine has been pretty okay, but I'm especially looking forward to this weekend because I'm meeting up with my best friend from primary school who I haven't seen in person for five years! The irritating part is that my social anxiety is going a bit mad, and I really don't want to turn up and just start having a panic attack in front of someone I haven't spoken to in person for half a decade, so hopefully I will stay calm enough that everything will be okay. Hopefully. I'll let you know next week. But, nevertheless, I'm super crazy very much excited.

Fun ways to work out that aren't the gym // tips

Hello everyone,

I hope that you have had a fantastic week, and that you fall asleep early tonight and your skin clears up. Just spreading a few small wishes (although asking my skin to clear up seems rather a large wish). I have had a great week (thank you for asking), I'm feeling very positive at the moment, and also very grateful, which has put me in a joyful mood all week. Today I'm here to talk about exercise! Yay! I'm sure that some of you love it and some of you equally hate it. Some of you might even want to shoot me when I say that I love exercising. I really do though. I love the exhilarating feeling and noticing muscles in places I didn't have muscles before. While I do go to the gym once or twice a week, it is not my primary form of exercises, mainly because if I go too often I get extremely bored. Inspired by this, and the difficulty of exercising during winter I have compiled some ways to exercise that aren't just running, but by all means run if you enjoy it. Sadly I can't any more because I was injuring myself badly :(

My top book series of all time // list

Hello everyone,

I hope that you have had an absolutely splendid week, and even if you haven't I hope that you can take some time to look of yourself this weekend. I realised that I haven't actually spoken about books yet on this blog, which is strange because my old blog was purely focused on books. So today I'm going to do a post that I have written before but I always enjoy reading these lists, so here's a lovely list for you lot today, and maybe you'll find something interesting to read!

My (kind of) epiphany // thoughts

Hello everyone,

I hope you've had a lovely week so far! I'm very much looking forward to tomorrow because I am going to see my best friend who lives a while away from me, and I don't usually get to see her very often so I am very grateful that this opportunity has come up and I am going to have a great day tomorrow. Also, I'm on holiday this week so yippee no school!

How to spend Valentine's Day alone + a little history lesson

Hello everyone,

I try to be a positive person; I really do. I want this blog to be a positive place online. I’m not afraid to be critical, however I don’t want to focus on the negative. Despite all of this, I’m going to begin this post by saying how much I absolutely hate Valentine’s Day. There are many reasons why. First of all, it’s just an arbitrary day. February 14th is just a normal day like any other but for some reason somebody decided that that would be the day to confess your deep, undying and eternal love for someone. Personally, I think anniversaries are much more meaningful than Valentine’s Day. Second of all, I hate how commercialised it is, although this can be said of almost all holidays. While chocolates are nice, don’t get me wrong, are they really the best way to show someone that you love them? I’ve never been in a relationship, so I’m not speaking with experience by the way, but I think that doing something personal to you and the person that you are in a relationship with is much more meaningful. Lastly, I have spent almost every Valentine’s Day since I was ten years old wallowing in my own self-pity (though I confess that this is completely my fault). It’s hard not to feel bad when so many people around you have a special someone to spend the day with, and even when I was younger the day just reminded me that maybe I wouldn’t find anyone when I was older. Maybe I would be alone forever.

Arty favourites // things I've been lovin'

Hello everyone,

as you have probably noticed, I'm going to talk about music that I've been liking recently. It's a simple concept, but I quite like these type of posts so I thought that you might. Be warned, I have a rather eclectic taste in music, so you might be a little surprised.

Why am I a slate? // Brain diary

Hello everyone,

Again, I'm sorry for not posting. I realise that I don't seem particularly reliable, and perhaps I'm not however I do have a legitimate excuse because Blogger changed their format slightly but I meant I got locked out of my account and I was also ill last weekend so not really feeling like blogging, but I promise that this will get better. Zero out of all posts being uploaded on time is a very sorry score.
