New Things :)

Today I tried aerial yoga. This combines a mix of traditional yoga ,plates and a hammock. To be completely honest it looks terrifying and i was nervous. I am an extremely clumsy person so my initial thought was that i was going to die or tremendously injure myself. However i enjoyed it so much that im doing another class next saturday.

You do a lot of stretches and traditional yoga poses but on the other hand i was upside down as the rest of the class for a good portion or the session. I would think that having blood to the brain was a bad thing yet it’s actually good for your brain cells, warning you do get a bit dizzy when you come back up. surprisingly i wasnt that horrific, i do have a background of acrobatics and cheerleading. My mum was also able to do what was asked with no similar background, so even if you have never done anything like that i throughly recommend it.

After that was my hairdressing appointment. My hair hasn’t been light for a good couple of years so i had no idea how it would turn out. I love it is all i can say ,my hair feels great and not tremendously damaged. Quick side note; i forgot how long it takes colouring hair (i didn’t get it cut) and i was in there for about three and a half/ four hours. So tell me what colours have you or do you want doing to your hair and whats something new your willing to try.

Have a nice rest of your weekend,

Summer :)

So as a normal person before summer begins i make an imaginary list of what i think will happen. However when it gets to the time you hardly ever end up doing any of this.

Since summer let out i have been religiously watching movies ,binging shows and reading. I have had a couple of sleepover’s ,cinema trips and lunches but it feels like i havent done anything. Not that im complaining i probably need to relax with all the stress and stuff ive been up to recently.

With some thinking i have decided as tomorrow was my last day of being a full-blown dark brunette i need to do something and once im blonde i’m going to carry on doing things.

Yoga is something im trying out on saturday and im surprisingly exited. Although it’s not just normal yoga its aerial which is when it’s on a rope or something like that. I’m doing it with my mum so it’s going to be hilarious. Than after yoga i’m going to dye my hair.

nervous and exited are the words i would describe towards my feelings of the occasion. Yes, i have dyed my hair before but not to this extreme i guess. The first time was couple years ago and i dipped dyed it to a lighter brown but got bored a couple of months later and cut my hair short. A couple of months ago, now that  my hair was long again i went for a dark purple. So now going blonde i guess is the most adventurous because i can’t get my natural colour back that easily. Not that id admit that to anyone because i had to fight hard to convince everyone it was a good idea. If you cant tell changing my hair is my way of being different.

So that’s all i really have to say about this, might have gone a bit off topic but thats me. Let me know whats the most crazy thing you’ve done or what you want to do?

Get to your summer plans,

My Anxiety :\

So this is something i hate talking about but mental health is important and people should be discussing it. This is something i still struggle talking about with close family members and friends. To be completely honest im finding it hard to word myself now. But maybe if one person can relate to this it might make them feel not so alone because i know i do sometimes.

I can’t remember exactly when my anxiety kicked in, however i remember in year six having my first panick attack. When i look back at it the situation it’s self wasnt that bad but i guess it had to start somewhere. It was like suddenly the air was knocked out of me and i couldn’t breath and then people around me started to panick. Next thing you know im in the office laying on the ground feet elevated with the school nurse trying to get me together. The memory its self is quite blurry so i think that’s all the detail i have of that.

Anyway as time went on i was slowly learning to control it but that was knocked right out of the window last year. Id rather not go fully into depth about this but lets just say i went through some major family problems and changes . So because home life wasnt spectacular i counted a lot on my friends ,but then one day they just flipped. Bullying started and the anxiety just starts getting worse. On the bright side i was out of that school just before christmas when my mum decided the best choice was a change .

You would think new start new me , unfortunately that’s not how it works. Anxiety doesn’t just go away it needs to be helped rather than discarded and everyone around me thought just because the problem was over i was better. So while everyone ,myself included, ignores it the anxiety doesn’t go away .

So finally about a little over a month ago i asked my mum if i could see someone because i could see that it wasnt just going to disappear anymore. With a bit of an explanation why and the past year not being so great for me she agreed and thought it was fine. I’ve been seeing my counselor/therapist for three weeks now and its hard hearing a professional tell you what you already know and i bet its hard for my mum to start accepting its nothing.

What im trying to say is anxiety isn’t something you can just brush under the rug and pretend it isn’t there. It can come in all different forms for all different people. There are ways to deal with it which can make your life that little bit easier.

So just a quick tip if you ever suffer from anxiety major or not ; whenever you start to feel a bit anxious take a deep breath and start counting down from ten or twenty, whatever you prefer. Believe it there is a scientific reason why this works i just can’t put it into words.I hope that with me being a little more honest with you ,could possibly help yourself.
if you have any advise to share with me or others please and if you’d like me to do another post like this let me know.

remember it’s okay to put yourself first sometimes,

Sorry :(

Hey to anyone who has bothered to stick around, it has been a long time and I can’t even remember what I last wrote about or when it was.

Incase I haven’t written about this I changed school back in January and things have been hectic. I’ve had end of year exams, music lessons and I even joined a band. So to say things have been busy would be an understatement. It was also my birthday recently so that was pretty good.

Anyway back to the changing school thing, I have met some amazing people but I still don’t feel like I fit it. I just don’t have anything in common with anyone which makes for a lot of small talk. I have this friend and don’t get me wrong I really like her and she is one of the people in the group who I actually can talk to but she confuses me. It’s weird one minute she is being really sweet and the next she is calling me unpleasant names with a serious tone and look in her eye. she can also be pretty vicious which always seems to catch me off guard and she kind of threatens me when I don’t do what she wants. To be honest I know how bad this sounds but this is the first person who i feel like i could have a friendship with but with the way she acts I’m not sure how i could deal with that.

Music wise however is going amazing and I have never felt more passionate about anything else. I write occasionally just to unload but unfortunately i can never find the right words to continue it. School work is also going really well all of my grades were above expectations and I have been invited to the awards ceremony to celebrate achievements of students; no idea what mine is for.

There is a boy. We get on the same bus and over time we have started talking ( in person only he doesn’t have social media 😦 ) and I have kind of caught feelings for him. My friends are convinced he flirts with me but I just don’t see it. He is in the year above so what would he find the least bit attractive about me. Did i mention his mum is my vocal coach and my piano teacher. It’s quite awkward really, anyone with a music teacher might know you talk to them quite a lot and i unload to mine. I found this one boy attractive next thing you know the whole school finds out and then he calls me ugly.  So that’s what i talked to her about this one day and then i suddenly noticed how she constantly mentioned her son ( don’t have a code name so if you think of one be sure to tell me)and how i should like him and how he’s so sweet. Just things like that and once i started noticing it, i couldn’t stop. Only a few of my friends know and i have no idea what to do.

apologising once again for not posting in forever and if this was a bit of a ramble.If you have any suggestions to help with my current problems please let me know I could really use the help. By the way it has reached 30 degrees celsius in England to da o i am pretty impressed.

Hope some of you are still around,

Fan Girling

Fan~ a person who has a strong interest in or admiration for a particular person or thing

Fan Girling ~ behave in an obsessive or overexited way.

I am a fan girl. I am a fan girl of multiple fandoms. With this comes getting very emotional about people who don’t recognise your existence. which is sad never the less especially when certain groups split up. But in most cases you continue to obsess over these people continuously anyway,

As for these people you will follow them on every social media platform with your notifications on. You will try to be one of the first people to like their tweets/instagrams and comment adoring messages hoping they will recognize you.

Some people follow a group/person from the beginning , others join later on. However we all love them the same. When you see them you smile and instantly feel giddy sometimes these people help others with the most simple things sometimes just by tweeting hey.

I think that’s the most incredible thing i find about these people. They are helping others with out realising it and its spectacular when you think about it . On click of a button and they can turn someones day upside down in a positive way.

Sometimes you can be teased for having a large interest in someone but in the end if they make you happy who cares? I know I don’t.

As I have gotten older i have grown to learn that what ever i want to do in life i want to make people happy. Hopefully one day i will be able to do it through music,  just to make someone  smile like these people have done for me .

I think that’s why I took such an interest to them because thats what i wanted to do and i still do.

Are you invested to any fandoms? what is your opinions on it ? What type of fandoms are you into?

ps sorry for not updating I will try to get better.

Sorry and what i’ve been up to

Hey sorry for not posting for a week. If I am being honest i just wanted some time to relax and focus on me and my friends.

So this past week has been such a nice break as I mentioned in an other blog post i had a ridiculous amount of tests which was stressful but i got a couple of results back and did quite well which is always amazing. Back at school today, it was nice seeing people who i wasnt able to see over break.

Changes. Over the past week i have really thought about what i want to achieve and do. To start that of is getting my body to look how i want it to. I am not over weight however i am not where i personally want to be so i am working out in the mornings before school , eating well and im going to the gym with a couple of friends on Thursdays.

Music wise I still hav’nt written anything new as i just have no inspiration at the moment which is a bit annoying but i have learnt some new songs .I have been really focused on my ukulele which has been lots of fun and being able to play some of my favorite artists is awesome. Also i had to re-string one of my guitar strings as it snapped. Proud of my self as it went well surprisingly .

Another thing i have been focused on is my art work. It is really coming along and experimenting with different equipment from ; paints, oil pastels and pencils. I concluded with some really nice pieces that i am proud of. My favorite piece was of a high way and at the end of it was jupiter. I actually had to buy a new art book because i ran out of space. It is gorgeous and from paper chase. It is the biggest i could get and has maps mixed together on the front.

So i had a couple of other things to mention but i don’t want to bore you so ill save it for next time.

What have you done in the past week?  How are you? Any exiting news?

love yourself {Justin Bieber reference :]}, little british girl xoxo

Music

So if you have not picked up on this yet I love music and when i say love i actually mean obsessed. As far as instruments go i can play piano, guitar and ukulele. I also like to sing.

With music it is great to have idols/inspiration. My major ones would have to be; Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran, Tori Kelly and Ariana Grande. Just putting it out there also big on One Direction and Justin Bieber just saying. Anyway i love a lot of other artists but these are the ones i dream to have a career like.

My Spotify playlist is too long. As in 2648 songs currently. However this is because my wide range of music choices from classical to rap and everything in between. It is nice having this mix as you can really mix it up and your bound to have an interest of each category with someone , so there is a great sentence starter.

Back to what i play, i adore being able to do this. I also write music which has been my best way of expressing my self as im so passionate about it. There is a song called Ten Toes Down by TeRae and if you haven’t heard of it i strongly suggest you give it a listen. Anyway there is a challenge called ten toes and its all about people rapping or singing about their experiences and how they feel. Some of those people are so talented that i get lost in the internet for hours. I would love to post one but i simply do not have the confidence. One day hopefully i will

Some song I’ve been loving are; I Was Made For Loving You by Tori Kelly ft Ed Sheeran ,Ed’s new songs [so exited for the album] and his old ones , dont i a personal favorite i can also play it on guitar, Shawn’s album’s because they are amazing #been there since day one !

Whats your favorite song/album at the moment? Can you play an instrument? Who is your musical idol?

Have a listen to some music, little british girl xoxo

Half term

Whoooo I have made it through my first half term at my new school. For those of you how don’t know what half term is it is a one week break through out your school term. So yes i am of for a week and im glad.

Things to do. Major one is obviously to catch up on sleep. I like many others am a night owl. Bad things that come with this are going to bed a few hours before school ,meaning you will be a zombie for the first couple hours. Let me tell you that is not an attractive look on me as i only have twenty minutes to get ready , pack my bag, make my coffee and have a smoothie.

Secondly, i want to learn some more songs on the guitar and maybe piano. Maybe even write a couple as i have had no time to do such things lately. Also i am going to make a t-shirt. Its going to be black, cropped , lose fitted and have a black and white Aztec print pocket.

unfortunately due to teachers not wanting you to have fun i have homework. There is evidentially too much Spanish work and three pages of math revision. Also i need to do design and technology work. Dont teachers realise we have a social life or have things we would rather be doing. I have done at least one test in every subject the last two weeks but obviously that’s not enough work for them.I would love to be able to take some good photos aswell but who knows.

What are you doing ? Do you think teachers want to torture us because they were ? What are your hobbies ?

Ps. im starting cheerleading again on Tuesday and im supper exited to get back to it.

Have fun, little british girl xoxo

 

 

social media

I like many other teens in this day and age have social media. From snapchat ,to instagram to twitter ,Pinterest and any other platforms you can think of. However is social media a good thing.

Sometimes it is. I have friends across the world and it helps me keep in touch with them easily. Which is great because without it we wouldn’t be able to talk now its just a click of a button. Also you can express your self posting your thoughts and feelings or pictures of you and your friends. Fan girls/boys like my self can keep up to date with our favorite celebrities which has helped me get tickets for concerts as i know exactly when they come out.

Anything good has its bad sides and social media can have quite a few. Last year i had to come off it for a little while. It made me enjoy life a bit more not living through a screen and i talked to people face to face more often. There is also quite alot of negitivity online so as soon as your out there anyone can judge you. Many more reasons as well as this but i wont get into them now or thiss will be a while.

In the end there is good and bad points but it also depends on how you use it and whether you are responsible. Yes i will continue to use social media but i will always keep in mind the negitives.

whats your opinion? whats your favorite social media? Are you sad vines gone [i am ]? What do you want to read about let me know.

be little social media geeks, little british girl xoxo

Photography

Photography is another one of my passions. I love the though of being able to capture moments of our lives.

To take the photos i use generally three different thing ; my phone,fuji film instax mini 8 and canon 1300D. However if you want to get into this you don’t need it you can simply use your phone if you want. Each piece of equipment has its own use. My phone is to capture unexpected moments as it’s with me all of the time. Fuji film for certain group photos of landscapes and my canon for pictures i want to be high quality and more precise.

My favorite photos to take are landscapes of beautiful places; sunsets, beaches, city’s, the country and anything else like that. I like to be able to relive the view ive seen as some of them are magnificent and positively breath-taking. Sometimes the simple things are most effective instead of something extravagant. One of my favorite photos is one of a lock. I went to watch the rugby and after the match when they closed the gate to the seats I had an idea. Yes i did look ridicules but it was worth it. Saying that another favorite of mine is a sunset a climbed some rocks that go past the shore towards the ocean. The focus was purely on the sea but the waves ad rocks compleated the photo.

You can also express yourself through it. A stormy night can represent anger and gorgeous sunny day can show joy. Of corse those are just some obvious examples and there are so many other ways.

Do you take photos, if so what of? How was you day and what are you doing at the weekend?

Snap away, little british girl xoxo
