Just Relax

Hey there!

So I know I said i was going to write three or four times a week, well turns out I can’t post on Wednesday so it will be three times and/or whenever I can write. I have taken down a countdown because the blog post have to be written in advance and writing in the week is a struggle.

Life can be full of stress and there is no point ignoring it because it just builds up more and more until finally you become overwhelmed in anxiety and that can often came a person become constantly miserable and no-one wants that. But don’t be afraid of stress because cowering away from it can also make it build up, so the best way to deal with stress is think what is it I’m stressing about, what can I do to stop myself stressing about it, do I need to stress about this now. Answer these questions and then do whatever it is that you need to do to stop stressing about it whether it is doing a piece of work, telling someone about it etc. Another good way to deal with stress is write about it: fix any of it that can/ needs to be fixed, do whatever it is you need to do and then rip it up and throw it away, it is no longer something to stress about. Also if your stressing about something when your trying to get to sleep you are most lightly tired you can always deal with it in the morning.

As well as those techniques something I’ve found useful is to take your mind of all of it: friends, family, school, work. However hiding away from everyone and everythingI’ve found that writing both on this blog and in a journal. Everyone has something that will take there mind of the things their struggling with and no matter how busy you are make sure you have time to just chill and relax (sleeping or reading  are very good ideas) .

There are loads of ways to deal with stress these are just some of my best and I’m sure they will work with others. Comment any tips on dealing with stress that you have.

Bye for now,

7 June Favourites 2017

I’m back again with another monthly favourites this is , I think, my sixth monthly favourites and although it says that I posted in December but if you click on that post then you’ll see that it hasn’t been written on.  I hope everyone has enjoyed the first month of summer and enjoyed the hot weather (well this depends where you are). Anyway let’s get on with the monthly favourites:

  1. Riverdale- It came out in January but I have only just started watching it. I recently finished watching my favourite show Pretty Little Liars, the finale of which came out this week, and a lot of my friends where talking about it and recommended it too me. Riverdale can be found on Netflix if your interesting in watching it.
  2. Pretty Little Liars- Now if you’ve been reading my monthly favourites or you have a look back on them, then you will see that I have mentioned this one before but I thought as this amazing show has come to an end recently that it would be good to mention it again. Again Pretty Little Liars can be found on Netflix.
  3. Scones- I recently made some sweet scones which were delicious (if I say so myself). I’m thinking of sharing some of these recipes with you but I will get more into that later in the post. As well as scones tasting really nice there also quite enjoyable to make. If from reading this you now want scones then either go out and by some or read till the end of this post.
  4. Jane the Virgin- Firstly try to get past the name it is rated G which I’m pretty sure is a twelve in America. Now that your starting to get over the name let me tell you some more about it: Jane the Virgin is about a women called Jane and her life, that sounds very simple and boring but I don’t want to give too much away. It is a comedy, romance, telenovela(look it up) and a mystery! I really enjoyed this series and if your 12+ or watch twelves then I recommend this show.
  5.  Skinny Love- Skinny Love is a song by Birdie not a latte in case you were wondering, it isn’t a new song in fact it was released in 2011, 6 years ago.  I just keep hearing this song a lot so then I looked it up and listened to it and now it’s always on coz I’m always listening to it.
  6. Tennis-This is another one I’m surprised I haven’t mentioned yet as I do it twice a week and it is probably my favourite sport. I have always loved d tennis but since a year or so ago I have also loved playing tennis. I’m not a performance player but once I am hitting all shots instead of 90% and can serve I will most likely move on to that.
  7. Lemonade- As its summer I thought I should put in my got to summer drink. Lemonade is a summer classic but when its hot theres nothing I want more than a lemonade and it to cool down a little bit. I have made lemonade before and therefore know that it is literally water, sugar, ice and lemons but its still delicious.

Thats another monthly favourites done and dusted now I just need to make sure I post again this month. I think as well as posting a bit more on my friends series and this monthly favourites series I will be starting a series of my favourite recipes so I will start with scones. I will try to this at least once a month and then that will hopefully two or three a month. I really value your input and as you are the ones reading my blog if there is anything you want me to post then feel free to leave me a comment or dm me on instagram.

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading my favourites from this month if you have leave a like, tell me what yours were by commenting and make sure to follow me on here and on instagram.

7 May Favourites

Hi guys I’m back with another monthly favourites. Just a quick recap back to my last blog which is called Contact me which you can find in the May section.

  1. Goat Grenade- If you’ve heard of and/or watch Jack or Conor Maynard then you will probably have heard of their new single Grenade. I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure that G.O.A.T is a company that does parodies with people and thats what Conor and Jack have done. In the comments a lot of people were saying that it was degrading to women and it is but it’s not serious, it’s a parody and watch till the end. That is my opinion but I would love to here yours.
  2. Smurfs the lost village- Now as one of the slightly older fans (so older than 7 or 8) I really enjoyed the film I thought it was great that we got to be reunited with our faavourites and also introduced to more smurfs. Without being a plot spoiler I will just say that it is quite different from the other smurf movies and that they have opened up a door to take the franchise further.
  3. Netflix- I still can’t believe that I haven’t mentioned this one yet seeing as I love it so much. Thing is with Netflix is that it isn’t free and everyone loves stuff more when its free but Netflix is definitely worth the dosh we pay for it. They have lots of greats shows and movies.
  4. What to expect when your expecting- Now I know this is a movie that it was released in 2012 and this month wasn’t the first time I’d seen it but it had been a while and I’d forgotten how funny and enjoyable it is. It can be found on Netflix and it features a huge amount of my favourite actors like Anna Kendrick, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez etc.
  5. Mother’s day- Another movie which is also on Netflix, I clearly watch far to much Netflix. Again this movie didn’t come out this year, it came out in last year, and again it wasn’t the first time I’d seen it. I introduced it to one of my friends when we were scouring Netflix for something new. It also has a large amount of my favourite actors like Shay Mitchell and Jennifer Aniston (two of my all time favourites), Kate Hudson, Julia Roberts, Britt Robertson and more.
  6. Online shopping- Well whats the point in getting up, getting dressed, leaving the house, going into town and going shopping when you can skip the hassle and do it from the comfort of your bed in your pyjamas in only a few minutes and you don’t even have to buy anything it’s a much quicker and easier way of browsing your favourite shops. I have no objection to going shopping in the actual store but if you go shopping to the actual store to much you end up spending lots but when your online shopping you can just find stuff to look for on your next shopping trip.

Now what I realised at number 6 was there was nothing I new for me to put for a seventh favourite so next month (well this month) I will be back with a full set of seven. You have probably come to the conclusion that I’m a really lazy person who spends there days watching films, online shopping because I can’t be bothered to go to the actual store and who can’t even think of seven things she’s enjoyed that month, and I’m not gonna lie that when I’m feeling tired that that is basically what I spend my time doing but when your tired from a long week of work or school who isn’t looking forward to a good movie night. Remember to leave a like, a follow and a comment of what you want more of, what you want to read in the future or any advice you want. Remember you can message me privately on my Onegirl-Onejourney Instagram account. Check out my other posts and check back in next time for another post (hopefully this month).

7 April favourites

Oh boy what can I say about April? Well first of all not enough blogging, this is not a habit I want to get into out of also the amount times I have said this is insane it’s probably getting really annoying. But as it is now May and April is just less than 12 months away I need to do a monthly favourites, so here they are:

  1. Guardians of the galaxy, volume 2.- Now don’t kill me when I say that I haven’t seen the first volume but let me tell you I absolutely adored GOTGV2 it was hilarious, action-packet, not as serious as other sci-fi movies. I laughed the whole way through and cried for the last 20mins or so it felt. I strongly recommend this movie and am hugely looking forward to seeing the first one.
  2. Diversity- Wow, these guys are sooooo good I can’t believe it has been eight years since they one BGT (Britains got talent). For those who don’t know them they are a group of amazingly talented dancers who won BGT as I said eight years ago. I went to see their Genesis show a couple weeks back and it was just fantastic. They have had they’re own tv shows, present other shows like the Nickelodeon slime fest is presented by Perri Kiely and Jordan Banjo, two of the dancers in Diversity. Jordan was also on I’m a Celebrity get me out of here.
  3. React bros- React bros is a Youtube channel made by two boys who just react to other  You tubers videos. This may not sound entertaining but I find it very entertaining and if I was you I would just watch one of there videos and if there not for you then at least you checked them out.
  4. Wishbone- Wishbone is very simply a voting and comparing app, it has wyr’s (would you rathers), you can compare things like prom dresses, celebrities, pranks and much more. You can see what other people have voted for and how close or far apart the votes are.
  5. Walking- This sounds lame but in truth walking is a great way to exercise especially if your not the sportiest person. Walking can be a great for other things like:
    • Thinking- Need to dwell on something and also do something then walking is the thing to do
    • Catching up with a friend- Go for a walk and chat the whole time is much better than talking while both sat on devices.
    • Photography- There are often some great photos to be taken of walks.
  6. Marcus Butler- Marcus Butler is a You tuber who does short videos which are very useful when you don’t have long to watch or want a quick video not something to spend ages on. He does reacting videos, weekly vlogging,he has does done raps, try not to laugh, Youtubers in bed and more. He does a large variety of things which makes his channel appealing.
  7. Pretty Little Liars- This is my absolute favourite show and it is back with Season 7b which is sadly the final season, it is a mystery, drama, romance, comedy and all round great show. It is an ABC family show about four teenage girls. I love this show and so do many others you can find it Netflix.

Ok so thats my 7 monthly favourites comment if any of those would be yours or what yours would be. As always remember to like, follow and comment.

7 March favourites

I’m back and it’s that time of the month where I need to do another monthly favourites. It has been such a long time since I posted a blog, I need to get into the habit of posting every week. I might start a countdown for each blog post so that I post regularly and on time.

  1. PRIMARK- This month I have absolutely adored Primark this month, not that I don’t normally like Primark it has always been great obviously but this month I bought my new favourite jumper which I will leave a link to below.
  2. Bitmoji- I re-downloaded it this month and was surprised at how much I now use it. For those who dont know Bitmoji is an app where you design your self as an emoji and there is all sorts of funny pictures with your emoji in. There are some example I found online below. You can make it Bitstrips style or bitmoji style I have made mine bitmoji style but having seen these might try Bitstrips. I recommend downloading Bitmoji especially if you have snapchat as you can sign in through it.
  3. Ed Sheeran songs- Ed Sheeran has come back from his year off with a bang. His new album Divide came out on Friday 3rd March since then he has had a huge success. I have been a fan of his since his first album and was disappointed when he took a years break.
  4.  4’o clock club- Now I’m not talking about detention it isn’t something you should be proud of but it does make a good TV programme. I’m talking about the CBBC show that has come back with its fifth series. It’s filled with jokes, raps, friends, family , school, teachers etc.
  5. Temple run 2- My dad and I absolutely adored this game when I was about 7 or at least I adored it and he had it on his phone! Still it’s a great game and I recently downloaded it. If you don’t know what temple run 1 or 2 is then I’ll explain: basically you’ve stolen the idol so this monkey, demon dude is chasing you there are obstacles and coins to collect. You slide, jump, turn and tilt to obtain a high score.
  6.  Shopping-I actually can’t believe I haven’t put this in a monthly favourites yet. Shopping is so much fun because you can do it with friends, family and it’s a great way to get to know people, I know: what! how does shopping help you get to know someone? Well it can coz you can learn someones fashion sense and tastes from going shopping with them, weird I know but still it’s an excuse to go shopping!
  7.  Sims freeplay- I have had this game for years but haven’t mentioned it yet so thought I should now. It is basically Sims 4 but as Sims 4 is £49.99 and Sims freeplay is free. Despite this fact Sims freeplay is still sooo fun, you can design cool houses, make families, build relationships. I recommend downloading it however it takes up quite a bit of storage!

Hope you have enjoyed this months favourites. What are your 7 march favourites? Do any of these make your 7 monthly favourites? Also is there anything you want me to blog about? Any tips you want about, well general life? Comment down below and remember to like, follow, tell your friends and most of all enjoy!

Gifs part 1?

Hi guys be warned this blog post contains a lot of humour so beware cause your about to laugh a whole lot. So this post is gonna be a bit different to anything I have ever posted on my blog but it is something that most people love and it’s just a bit of fun. It’s a new blog content idea for me and I don’t know if maybe it should just be at the bottom of my blog with the blog calendar, follow button etc or if you like every so often for me to post something a bit more humoured, let me know in the comments. Anyway here are the gifs:

dancing-banana.gifIt’s a dancing banana with a huge smile what’s not to love!?

triangle-shape-moving-animated-gif-5.gifI just don’t get it it’s so cool!

ba-awesome-colorful-fireworks-animated-gif-image-s.gif                       I love the colours and also fireworks are too loud but so pretty so having a gif is perfect.Dvdp3.gif It’s actually hypnotizing!

I’m not gonna do to many because if you guys think it’s a bit boring then there is no point me doing loads. I have really enjoyed making this, there were a lot of really funny ones but I can’t post anything racist or political really because I don’t want to offend anyone getting offended by anything I post. I’m gonna make a gifs widget at the bottom of my page so they will be there as well. If you enjoyed it like and tell me your favourite gif, if not then tell comment some ideas of what you would enjoy reading.

Thanks for reading,

Friends p2! Groups

Hi guys I haven’t posted in quite a long time and the reasons are what this blog is about. Recently I posted part 1 of Friends but it wasn’t called part 1 because I didn’t know that it might be quite fun to start a series that will go on for a long time. The first of this series was very stereo typical and I’m wondering if it was too stereo typical, comment !!! if you think yes if you think it was too stereo typical, comment !! if you think no it wasnt too stereo typical. Anyway here is part 2:

So the reason I haven’t posted in a while is one school, but that isn’t blog post worthy, two I have been having a bit of friend drama. I think I mentioned it before but I recently started a new school which means new classes, new teachers  and more importantly new friends, I started off in one friendship group, then that group moved into another which then broke into one 6 and one 3 leaving me holding the pieces in the middle. I pinged between these two groups and finally got tired of be stuck in the middle of everything. So I stayed with one friendship group but we were a seven and I kept getting left out which got very tiring. These things happen with friendship groups and it can be hard but they just keep changing over and over again like man kind we evolved. I should probably also mention that just because finding a secure friendship group was hard didn’t mean  I still had friends and a lot of fun at school.

Adults will tell you that friendship groups are bad and they can be if the friendship group is excluding people. But having close friends that hang out isn’t bad as long as you let anyone in.

This has been quite a short post but I’m rushing to get as many blogs out as possible! I’m going to try to post once a day until I have done 5 posts this month. Go check out yesterday’s 7 February favourites and I will see you tomorrow with another post!

Remember to comment on whether my last Friends post was too stereo typical if you can’t remember it was in the first paragraph. I love hearing your ideas I guess you have anything you want me to post about any advice your in need of. Thanks for reading I’ll see you tomorrow with my next blog.

 

 

7 February favourites

Hi guys, it’s the beginning of March which means that I need to do a February Favourite’s. Last month I only posted once!! I have a lot of unfinished blogs saved up which I will post as son as possible. I’m starting a blog series as well as this one of monthly favourites except about friends. You will have to wait a couple of days for my next load of blogs but for now here is my February Favourite’s:

  1. The Space Between Us- I went to see this movie with some of my friends it is sooooo good. It is a heartbreaking, romantic film that is sure to make you cry both with happiness and sadness. I’m not sure if I’m a loud to say it but personally I think the age certificate of the film is wrong it should really be a 12 but I’m not a film producer so I maybe wrong.
  2. Flappy Golf 2- This game is so fun. It is basically golf but you have to get into the whole in a certain amount of jumps or you can play online or you can play local against your friends and the past part is to play local you don’t even need wifi!
  3. Costa- I have always loved Costa but I didn’t mention it in my last monthly favourites so I figured I would just have to mention in this one. For those who don’t know Costa Coffee is an amazing chain of cafes.
  4. Paper.io- Paper.io is another game which is one of many .io games where you have to draw out paper. It’s hard to explain really but it’s soooo fun and it’s free! You can also buy cool avatars using the game money you win while playing. You don’t need wifi for it and it’s super fun.
  5. Memories- Recently my friends and I have spent a lot of time talking about the past. It is really fun recalling all those good times and going back and it’s happened. One thing I love about memories is that you don’t have to remember the stuff you don’t like and you can just think about the stuff that was fun and you enjoyed.
  6. River Island- My local river island doesn’t only sells women’s clothes and I do often shop their but I found that out a long time ago so kinda of didn’t go back but recently went into another River Island and I loved it, I bought £80 worth of clothes and I’m now obsessed with it.
  7. Cbbc- When I was a kid (here I go with my memories again) I adored CBBC and didn’t watch much else, then I kind of watched Disney Challenge, then YouTube and now I’m back at CBBC. I generally watch 4’0 clock club, Dumping Ground, Millie inbetween but it changes all the time. I love all there shows but those are the ones I and watched recently.

So those are my 7 February Favourites. If you haven’t already seen my last one of these then go check it out like it, comment, follow the whole package.

Bye for now,

7 January Favourite’s

So at the moment my blog has been mostly advice which is great and I love doing it but I feel like I want more variety on my blog. Also you guys might get a bit bored of advice.

This post is called January Favourites because I was watching Zoella while thinking about my blog and suddenly thought that as it is the beginning of February and so to give my blog variety I should do January Favourites. I will try do one of these every month.

This month I have been loving:

  1. YouTube- I’m loving youtube at the moment it is my life after school. If I had done a December faves it would have been Netflix but now I just can’t watch anything else I’m obsessed!
  2. Sims 4- Same as before in December I was obsessed with Sims freeplay but now I’m saving up £50 to buy Sims 4 because I love watching people play sims 4 and it looks so cool.
  3. My blog!- I love this blog and as January has been the first full month of my blog I thought it would be important to mention to you guys reading that I love writing as much as I hope you love reading it. I would like to shout out to Maylia, Charlotte and Lucy you guys are the most amazing fans I love you and your support is so important to me.
  4. New look- I have always loved New Look but I have and still love a lot of shops but now my online browsing is only ever on New Look. I personally love trying to be as original as possible and wanted to find a shop and a style that I like and was mine but I just love New Look too much I know it is very much a popular brand but I love it.
  5. Zalfie- I love watching their vlogs but also other people make slideshows to songs of Zalfie and it is adorable!!! I just love them they are just sooooo cute. One of Alfie’s most recent videos is called girlfriend voice over or something and I was cryin gwith laughter!!!
  6. Reading- Ok so your all probably thinking NERD ALERT!! But I love reading and I feel like  a lot of people don’t like it which is fine but reading so fun and also means you can concentrate on someone elses life rather than yours so reading has become an escape for me and anything that means I don’t have to think about life is just great.
  7. TEA!!!- Lots of my friends quite like coffee, hot chocolate or sweet drinks but no I just love love love tea so so so much. (i don’t have much to write about tea)

So those are my January favourites! Comment what you’ve been loving this month, follow my blog, like all my blog posts and tell your friends! (I sound really desperate but I am right now) Also comment if it is wrong that I want more followers and likes! I think it might be natural but what do you think?

Friends

Friends are the most amazing things to have because they feel like family but the best thing is they’re not your family which means they except you for you and you shouldn’t have to change for them. If you do have to change for your friends this is peer pressure and it isn’t good unless your changing for the better.

Everyone has different friends, thats what makes you like them so much because there not all the same! I will apologise in advance if anyone finds this stereo typical.

Here is a list of different types of friends (you will probably have at least one of these amongst your friendship group):

  1. The kind one: I’m not saying that you and all your friends aren’t kind but there is always one who is one of the loveliest people you’ve ever met. It may be hard not to get annoyed at how kind, generous and forgiving this type of person is but they are the kind of friend you need who will always support you.
  2. The sensitive one: I had a friend like this she was hilarious (this will be another type of friend) she would get touchy about everything. This type of friend offend understands your problems and support you because they have probably been through it too! These people can be difficult but supportive.
  3. The leader: Adults don’t like you or them to admit this but with every friendship group there is a leader it is a natural part of friendship group but the problem starts when the leader controls everyone else’s life. The leader is often the most confident person or the person who brought the group together.
  4. The shy one: The shy one tends to also be the cute one but not always. Some times talkative people like quiet a people because you can just talk and talk to them, other reasons too. I have a friend who is quite quiet and she is really really lovely but also surprised me when I first met her because of how funny she is! These people can surprise you in many ways but they often have beautiful little quirks.
  5. The mature one: Sometimes mature people start thing they’re more intelligent and better than everyone else but when they’re in a group of friends where everyone in the group loves them (as a friend or not) they can start not to feel that way. Mature people can be mature in different ways: maturely .developed, intelligently mature, inappropriate etc.

These are just a few types of friends there are more, some can be combined, more complicated and many more. As I was saying above adults don’t like you or them to admit to having friendship groups but it is natural to have a close nit group of friends the problem is when groups are exclusive.

If anyone has a friend like one of these comment! I’m going to start mentioning comments in my blog I only didn’t before because I didn’t have any! I really appreciate all the support you guys are giving me but I would love it if you could help me on my quest to find good advertising skills, I’m not asking you to dot the advertising or do research but if you have any good ideas that you think of while reading this, then I would love to here your ideas.

Also shout out to all my amazing friends who probably aren’t reading this but still!

Thanks for reading,
