Be in love with yourself 

So, I was standing next to a girl who’s in lots of my classes at school the other day, and there’s this bus stop on the opposite side of the the road and there’s this girl standing there. This girl is beautiful, skinny and blonde hair right (I’m not gay, but I’m just saying she was pretty). 

This girl I was standing with was like 

Look at her, I mean she sticking her bum out to make it look like it’s actually bigger than it really is. I mean all she has to do is workout. Is it that hard to do some squats? 

And to be totally honest I was absolutely outraged like how can someone stand there and be like that. Everyone and everything has built up this image you have to be, the figure that you must have the bum the boobs. And it’s just so wrong and awful.

Society has created a “perfect” image for us all to look like and that’s terrible. So if you don’t look like that you’re wrong and not perfect. That’s not how it should be. 

You should be happy with what you like.  You shouldn’t change to make others happy, you should only change d you want to change. You shouldn’t need to do “some squats” to make someone else happy, and why should you? 

Don’t change for someone else just because they don’t like the way you look! 

Cookies 

Recently, I made the most amazing cookies with some lovely friends. It was so great attempting these with such bubbly and great people. I feel like baking with friends is way more exciting than doing it by yourself, so find a baking friend! It was so fun to do and they turned out really well, so I thought I would share my recipe with you! 

Some really good chocolate chip cookies 

Ingredients: 

3/4 a cup of Caster sugar 

1/2 a cup of Brown sugar

2 cups of Self raising flour 

1 and 1/2 a cup of Chocolate (chips or chunks: either way is super tasty) 

3/4 of a cup of Butter (we used salted) 

1 Egg (medium) 

2 teaspoons of Vanilla extract 


Method: 

 1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease two baking trays (we used exta butter from the block) or line with baking paper.

2. Cream the sugars and the butter together until pale and smooth. ( we had to mush them, with a wooden spoon, a little bit before the were “creamed”) Beat in the egg, but don’t over-mix ( I think if you over mix it  will curdle the mixture – although how can you tell if cookie mixture is “curdled”?) 

3. Add the flour and the chocolate chips. Hopefull the dough should be a little sticky, if not add a teaspoon of milk until it is a little sticky. Place blob (or rolled up balls of dough if I’d didn’t turn out stick and you have no milk) of mixture on the prepared baking trays.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, (until golden but not too golden though) then remove from oven and leave to cool. 
If you make them please send photos love to see how they turned out! Hope you enjoyed this recipe!

Btw. They taste really good warm with vanilla or chocolate ice cream, and chocolate sauce or Nutella! 

Goals For 2017

Hello 2017! It is actually 2017! Oh my goodness!

After 2016,  think we are all hoping for better things from this year. Even though all the awful things that happened last year (that’s weird to say, well type) I think 2016 has made us all stronger for whatever is to come.

I have never really made “New Year’s Resolutions” and I’m not about to. But to be honest I don’t think they really work for anyone. Who actually completes their New Year’s Resolutions though? WHO?

So, I’ve decided to set myself GOALS FOR 2017 instead of resolutions (however only 3 of them, if I set more than 3 I don’t think I’d achieve them).

  1. Not to be scared To become less scared of what people think and say about me.
  2. To improve in photography
  3. To be more confident and believe in myself more

What are your 3 GOALS FOR 2017? Love to know them, leave them in the comments section!

 

 

Farewell 2016

Farewell 2016, lets just say I’m glad to see you go.

For all of us, I think that 2016 has been a pretty bumpy journey. It’s had its highs and lows. This year we have lost so many inspirational figures. Not only that, the political world is going crazy, all the terrorist attacks and last of PPAP (why?) 

To be honest, I actually cannot believe that we are only 6 hours away from a new year! It is exciting yet still extremely scary, I don’t know how this year has passed so fast. 

Even though it has been rough we’ve got through it all (somehow), however in-between all the awful stuff that has happened there’s been some awesome and fantastic stuff woven in-between it all, for me it has been:

  • I’ve met some amazing people, who have become really great friends
  • My mum has had the all clear for brain tumours
  • I’ve started this blog (YAY)
  • And I guess so much more, like finding a shop right near your Dad’s office where you can buy 250 fortune cookies for £13.95. Even the little things count.

Can you think of 3 wonderful things you’ve done/that had happened this year? Let me know in the comments!
