Diaries ?

hi guys,
After watching the likes of My mad fat diary and imagine-beyonce-life is but a dream, i have realised how important getting your feelings out is, especially if they are clouding your judgement or your not one for talking about your troubles. It can allow you to reflect on whats bothering you, make sense of whats going on and that what your thinking is or isn't that crazy, as well as actually getting it out of your system and consequently feeling that sigh of relief. It just feels that bit better, like you not stupid or alone.
Like in my mad fat diary, she writes things down, everything including other people with drawings also. Though she may have been in a mental hospital i still feel that writing things down and expressing yourself is good for absolutely everyone. Writing things down can be a bit of effort but afterwards you can see what was/is troubling you, allowing you to reflect. It becomes you own little world, a comfort.
If your always on your computer and would prefer to talk i suggest doing what beyonce does(I'm not trying to be like a celebrity, this is genuinely a good idea). The idea is that you use your web cam as a way of getting your feelings out and saying it out aloud makes it feel more real and as if the problems are actually leaving you and make more sense. Watching it back can be good to see how you were feeling in terms of what you looked like and your mood. It definitely feels as if the problems left you or made it better and that what you thinking is/isn't stupid. It's all very therapeutic.
So i really hoped this helped and gave you some inspiration.
Are you going to try this? x

Time warp :s

As a youngster i only really knew of one band and i loved them to pieces and still do. I watched all their tv programmes and films when they popped up on the telly. So i thought this post to help you get to know me and delve into my childhood a bit. Unfortunatley i never went to one of their concerts but i still listen to their music, it makes me super happy. I think the band were so lovely and i love all of them.
So i was born in the 90's that should give you a good guess, there were 7 members, have you guessed yet........Yep its S club 7 !
Heres one of my fave songs of theirs and hope this makes you think of any happy memories from your childhood.
Who were your fave band as a kid ?
thanks for reading

Home sweet home

hi people,
Recently i have been aquainted with the process of having to move house and for some strange reason i associate moving house with moving away because i have only really lived locally except for the one time me and family took the plunge to try a more countryside feel. I loved it there, everything seemed so calm and simple.
The reason for the move now to a bungalow conversion  on a hill is because my mum has always wanted a house that feels like a home as we quickly out grew our family home and have since been renting. Our family home was one of those houses with the steep stairs although that house will always hold memories and its not too far from where i live now.
You may be thinking why are you living in a bungalow (ahh the memories of dick and dom in the bungalow,haha) well to be quite honest with my lovely readers is that it isn't all that small and my imaginative mother has a dream of turning this so called shack into a palace with the help of some extra walls here and there. I think its fair to say she has been watching too and i exagerate on too much grand designs but i have to admit i do love a bit of grand designs. Its amazing what you can do with a few carefully placed materials, hey. 
I am totally aware of what moving house can do in terms of not feeling comfortable but as for the recent move things are looking up. At first i thought the bungalow/house was horrible a kind of messed up hansel and gretel house if you get my drift, but now that we are in i feel much more at peace and its nice to have all your things everywhere, that defo helps. I can't wait till i can actually decorate my room after the building work is done, oh what a joyeous day that will be and i already have a plan, me .... a plan.... already .....yes!
In terms of the stress as a 15 year old girl i just wanted all my things to arrive safely and to get my room sorted out. As you can probably tell i like to feel comfortable in my surroundings especially my own home and i can definitley say i am happy now in a house i can truly call my HOME! To be honest in terms of stress on my mum and dads side i hope it wasn't too bad although having cardboard boxes everywhere is very fustrating! i am also a big believer in relaxing and not worrying over anything  even moving house, things are only stressful if you make it stressful. I hope i can always be a calm and rationally minded person who people can talk to about anything.
I hope you enjoyed this more personal, lifestyle-e post
thankyou for reading, feel free to leave a comment

My mad fat diary

My mad fat diary is a programme that has started on e4. Its all about the diary of Rae Earl, a girl who has recently left a mental health unit and is now trying to find her feet. It is both a emotionally moving and funny programme to watch. 

I love programmes like these, ones that are inspiring and trying to enlighten people with the help of characters like Rae Erl. Its so different to anything I've seen before the only thing i could possibly find similar to it is skins. I do love e4 for all their amazing programmes.

All of the actors are amazing and all though Rae is the main character the others are played so well. i honestly treat the people like how i see you definitely can't tell there acting. The characters fit into the story so well.They all have different personalities. It is also wonderfully written and i can't think of a bad thing to say about it.

The programme is very honest probably because it is told from a diary perspective and that's what makes it so personal for Rae and the viewer. I haven't read the book and now I'm scared to because I'm worried it won't live up to my expectations. I also find it very relatable because i too am now a teenager and although it is set in the 90's i love it because i love the 90's and it puts a different spin on things. It covers so many troubles and i love how she always goes back to the hospital and we get to see what it is like because it makes you feel privileged to be allowed so far into someones life. I also like her relationship with her counsellor they seem to get on so well and have a bit of banter but still seem to be able to talk about stuff that matters. Some of the show consists of Rae being on her own and giving a voice over which i find very endearing and more relatable.

This show has become so special to me and its only had 3 episodes that's what i love too they seem to fit so much into just one hour and there are only 3 episodes left, i will have to keep re watching it though. This programme isn't a fairytale there are sad bits and awkward and it makes you feel accepted and not as much of a weirdo. i hope people are enjoying it as much as i do. I love you Rae! (did i mention fins a total hottie!)
Thanks for reading

What do you guys think about the show?

i got my new shoes on....

Now every girl likes a new pair shoes, some have loads others don't- like me because i usually end up buying clothes instead. As long as you have a decent black pair of shoes, boots especially-like i have my h and m Chelsea boot wedges i got back in august and cost me 30 pounds i wear them as much as possible obviouslynot now because I'd be toppling all over the place.
Recently i have heard some hype around the brand DEANDRI who are a shoe company, specifically for shoes with a stunning wooden wedge and leather top. Out of all the shoes i love the helga platform as they are not too high
 and are in a beautiful nude colour which they call blush. If i were to get them i swear i would never take them off and i don't have a pair of expensive shoes as i don't have docs or
Jeffrey Campbell's or any high end shoes brand you can think of.
              they cost £113.59 on nastygal. I also think that there so unique and can be paired with so many different things. Hopefully i will get them for next birthday or sooner if i save and i will be oozing glamour step after step!
Be sure to check their other shoes out and if you go to solestruck they have the helgas in different colours.
have a great day
