Monthly Look-Ahead: FEBRUARY

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Agh doesn’t the spelling of February just annoy you? That R is unnecessary… It looks better as Febuary… Wait… I don’t think it does…. NOW THE WORD HAS LOST IT’S MEANING AND IT LOOKS WEIRD AS HELL WHAT

Anyways, since it’s February tomorrow, it’s time to write my ‘Monthly-Look Ahead’, which I love to do very much. But, February (Oh god I’m pronouncing the r in my head) probably won’t be too eventful… March will be, but we’ll have to wait another month for that ๐Ÿ˜€

So, here’s what I’m looking forward to in February:

Bagels

I know, completely random right? Well, I haven’t had bagels in months, and my dad bought some while he was at ASDA last night, and THANK YOU VERY MUCH DAD. Unfortunately, we don’t have cream cheese… Which really depresses me… If you haven’t tried cream cheeses on bagels then you really should! It’s AMAZING โค

Valentines Day

Yeah, yeah, lovey dovey stuff. I’m not dating anyone. Never have been, probably won’t any time soon…. Crushes always gotta have the girlfriends, right? But anyways, none of my friends are ‘dating’ anyone, so we can all have a single valentines day! YAY! Plus it’s really cute seeing all the couples with big teddy bears and flowers ๐Ÿ™‚

More Snow?

*crosses fingers* Where I live, in the UK, we’ve had a few snowfalls, but only enough to play in it once. If my memory isn’t playing tricks on me, there was once a really deep snowfall in February, so I’m hoping that this year is the same! Winter just isn’t the same without snow, right?

The Last Time My Braces Will Ever Get Tightened

So, I have two more orthodontist appointments to go, and that makes my next one, the last time they’re getting tightened! THE LAST TIME I WILL EVER FEEL THE PAIN OF MY TEETH LITERALLY MOVING!! Okay if I just terrified people about to get braces, don’t worry, and I’m sorry… I’ve had them for almost 3 years and I think it’s about time I get rid of them so I’m exaggerating a little bit ๐Ÿ˜€

FOR THIS FREAKING SPOT TO GET OFF MY FACE

So, for the last week, if not more, I have been living with the most annoying spot on my face (I know, maybe a bit too much information but seriously). And it’s fairly big. I realised this morning, that it has finally started to go down, which means that in February, at some point, it won’t be there, and I won’t have to use a bucket of concealer to hide it. Or the redness at least.

Time For a New Concealer

As some of you may know, I don’t wear much makeup, and if I do, it’s only concealer. And thanks to the spot on my chin, I’ve gotten very close to running out. Which means that at some point I really need to get out into the shopping centre and buy a new one. I’ll probably invite Bob next weekend. But I’m not completely sure it’ll last until then… Anyways, my point is, I want to try a NEW concealer, if they have my shade (THE palest) and see how different it is, because the only concealer I have ever used is the Seventeen Stay Time one. Don’t get me wrong, it works well, but I don’t know of anything to compare it to. ๐Ÿ˜€

And that is everything I can think of at the moment! What are you looking forward to in February? Let me know in the comments!

Let’s Not Do That Again

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. You’re probably wondering what in the world this post is about; the title is quite vague I know… BUILDING THE SUSPENSE, RIGHT? But anyways, as you can tell, it’s something I regret. Not deeply or anything, just it probably wasn’t an amazing idea. I was going to post this on Sunday, but then I posted the recipe, and then on Monday I did the award and now it’s Thursday so I thought it’s about damn time I write it ๐Ÿ˜€

So, I shall finally reveal the ‘thing’!

I stayed awake for about 18 hours.

“Haha yeah big deal Jatm” I know, I know, itย  doesn’t sound like much. But considering 1) I didn’t get much sleep the night before and 2) I am usually only awake for about 14/15 hours a day, I was so tired. So, in this post, I’ll basically be saying why it wasn’t a good idea, and what I do when I’m so tired.

I literally didn’t feel emotions

I was watching the last episode of OUAT (so far), which I literally sobbed watching the first time I saw it (I actually had to pause it a few times to compose myself) but on Saturday, I didn’t cry one bit…. WHAT? I have no idea why, since I was paying attention to it… The emotions part of my brain must have fallen asleep… Do we even have an emotions are of the brain?

Too many emotions

Yeah, so after I decided I should go to bed, went downstairs, had a hot chocolate and came back upstairs, my emotions were crazy. I think it started off as “WHY IS CAPTAIN HOOK A FICTIONAL CHARACTER” and then just sat there both silently laughing and crying at myself… And then it was like “WHY IS THIS GUY AT SCHOOL IN THE YEAR ABOVE AND HAS A GIRLFRIEND” and I just lay in my bed dying from too many emotions…. And it even got to the point where I’d think to myself “THIS JUMPER IS SO SOFT” and sit there cry-laughing…. So yeah, I think the emotions part of my brain woke up at that point… Too much… ๐Ÿ˜€

Sore Eyes

This is kind of the usual thing that happens when you’re tired. Although, it was sort of worse because I had been staring at my computer screen for hours up until then. It hurt to look in other directions for a bit; my eyes were just so dry they couldn’t move as smoothly… But it got better after I had looked around and woken up a bit..

Dead Legs

I do not recommend sitting at a desk chair at the end of the day for hours… By the time I got out of my bedroom, my legs were tired because I was, and because I hadn’t moved in so long… ๐Ÿ˜€ So yeah… I probably looked drunk ๐Ÿ˜€

And that my friends, is why you shouldn’t stay awake for longer than your brain and your body can handle… See, this is why I don’t do sleepovers or all nighters ๐Ÿ˜€

What happens when you get sleepy??

My Favourite Recipe Ever!

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Today, as you have probably got from the title, I’ll be sharing my favourite recipe ever. I mentioned it in my last post, Relaxing, and I thought I would bless you all with how to make it. Trust me, if you like any cake (Who doesn’t?), you will love this as much as I do โค

I should probably tell you that it’s a chocolate mug cake, so a cake, in a mug. Perfection.

 

If you want to make this (please do if you have the time!) you will need:

1/4 cup of flour (all purpose)

2tbsp Cocoa powder (I love to use the Cadbury’s hot chocolate one)

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt (I usually skip this one out, though, don’t want too much salt in there!)

2tbps sugar (you can add more or take some if you want)

1/4 + 1tbsp milk

2tbsp vegetable oil (NOT olive oil! I used olive once and it was disgusting – don’t do it ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Hazelnut spread/Nutella (if you want. I like it normal, though)

 

And here are the instructions!

  1. Get a bowl, and mix together the flour, chocolate powder, sugar, baking powderย andย salt (if you’re using it).
  2. Mix in the milk and vegetable until there are no clumps or dry bits, making sure to get the powder from the edges of the bowl! It’s quite easy to make this one smooth so it shouldn’t take long at all.
  3. Find a big, microwave-safe, mug (the biggest one you have, to avoid overflowing and big messes)
  4. If you are using chocolate spread, put it into the middle now. Just drop it off the spoon, no need to swish or push it around.
  5. Put a paper towel/ kitchen roll into the microwave, so that if your cake overflows, it won’t trash your microwave
  6. Put the mug in, and microwave for around 70 seconds. If it isn’t ready straight away (still soft and gooey, which sometimes I like if it’s only a bit, it’s safe because there isn’t any egg) then put it in for another 10-20 seconds and check again.
  7. Be very careful because it will probably be quite hot!
  8. ENJOY!
  9. Make it again because you will want another ๐Ÿ˜€

And that, my friends is how to make heaven in a mug! I hope you try it out, and love it as much as I do! Let me know if you make it! โค

Relaxing

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Before I actually start, if this post seems rushed, well, it probably is… My internet hasn’t been working amazingly so it took me a while to start today… But, I’ll try my best to make it as good as I can!

From the title, you probably know that this post will be about relaxing! I’ll be telling you some of the ways that I chill out, and unwind.

SO…

Nails

I really like doing my nails, but not with nail polish or any of that… I mean keeping them nice naturally! So, I file them (not the metal nail files oh my goodness they make me cringe so badly I’m cringing just at the thought oh dear) and buff them, which actually does take a while but the results are SO worth it! And it’s quite therapeutic (as a lot of the things in here will be) I also trim them, which would be before the filing or buffing, and never too drastic. I don’t like to have really short nails… But then at the end, I have nice nails, and I’ve passed some time!

Skin/Face Care

Sometimes, if I feel like it, I’ll go full out and pamper my face. When I say full out pamper, I really don’t mean it. I mean for myself. Usually, I’ll use an Olay face cleaning towel (you put water on it and the soap comes out) and Olay beauty fluid (basicallyย a moisturiser). If I have one, I’ll use a face mask too. I very much so prefer the peely ones, because the wash off ones are SO messy! There was one face mask I had, that was cucumber flavoured? Scented? I don’t know how to word it but it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Colouring Books

This one was a gift to me for Christmas, and it has become one of my all time favourite ways to unwind. I have the Enchanted Forest book by Johanna Basford and a Harry Potter one too. So far, I have only started the first one, and I am in love with it! I thought that colouring in would be really frustrating because it takes a LONG time (especially with all of the intricate designs in these books) but it’s really not!

Music

Obviously, listening to music is one of the best ways to relax. If I don’t want to specifically listen toย a song, which sometimes ends up with me swishing my hair around and dancing crazily to Taylor Swift, I’ll listen to soundtracks from TV shows like Once Upon A Time (which is coming back in less than 2 months and I can’t deal with the wait). But if I do want to listen to songs, I have a playlist on my ancient iPod touch, that I love dearly, called “Chill Out Music”. It’s filled with the slowest songs in my Albums. So no crazy dancing!

Read

Another fairly obvious one,ย grab a book that you’re interested in, and read it. Engross yourself! Sometimes a book is exactly what you need to escape from the real world and enter another! Forget all of your problems, and worries for a bit, and submerge into the land of fiction! Or non-fiction if you sway that way, but to relax, I prefer a good fictional story!

Eat

I know, I know. This is really bad advice because eating all the time is not the answer. But really? Is once in a while ever that bad? Smuggle a packet of biscuits into your bedroom and eat away! Not too many though, I’d hate to have gotten you sick… ๐Ÿ˜€ And drinking water will make you feel less sick! Just a quick tip! Also, cake is amazing for stuff like that. Cake in a mug is my favourite. If any of you are interested, leave a comment and I’ll post my favourite recipe!

That’s most of the stuff that I do to relax, unwind, chill out, whatever you want to say. But what works for you? Let me know in the comments!

Primary School Things

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Today, I wanted to do another post like my ’44 Teenage Girl Things’ and ’44 Childhood Things’ posts. Not sure if I’ll be able to come up with 44, which seems to have become quite the tradition… But we’ll see! And just in case you were wondering, this might kind of merge with the Childhood one, but I want to focus on things that actually happen at school. So here we go!

  1. The worst, most corny jokes in the entire world…. “Where do cows go on their holidays?…. MOO YORKK” -.-

  13. That one kid (in my case, Bob) that was already terrified for GCSEs but was also able to chant the periodic table whenever, wherever
  14. THOSE TINY STRAWS FILLED WITH SHERBERT OMG
  15. Those gooey aliens! Although I was the only one that didn’t like them
  16. And high school musical… I didn’t like that either… Literally the only girl that didn’t crush on Troy ๐Ÿ˜€
  17. Speaking of crushes, girls crushing on just about every male teacher there is
  18. You haven’t had the full primary school experience without some hyper kid pulling their pants down or something :’)
  19. Stories of a kid that died from swinging on his chair ๐Ÿ˜€
  20. Starting every story with “Once upon a time….”
  21. The struggle of choosing which WordArt to use ๐Ÿ˜€
  22. Finding out all of the teachers’ names
  23. That kid who had an iPhone in year 4 :O
  24. Wet paper towels everywhere
  25. Looking at shoes in heads down thumbs up, but everyone’s shoes were basically the same ๐Ÿ˜€
  26. That brief moment of insanity when a dog somehow gets into the playground and everyone goes nuts
  27. Snazzy new pencil cases making you literally the Queen
  28. Black on the end of a yellow felt tip… A moment of silence please…
  29. Those few times you were in the staff room and oh my goodness life was amazing
  30. That kid with the Nativity costume that didn’t fit in at all ๐Ÿ˜€
  31. Gggggooooooooooood Moooooooooorrrnniiiiiiinnng Mrrsss lalalalalala
  32. You know Christmas has come early when you have fruit winders in your lunchbox!
  33. ‘Shatterproof’ rulers that definitely weren’t shatterproof…. One of mine snapped into 5 pieces ๐Ÿ˜€

  35. Writing two whole pages for a story and it doesn’t get a stamp… WHAT IS LIFE?!?
  36. Smuggling toys into your tray ๐Ÿ˜€
  37. Getting to sit on the benches in year 6 and finally reining over the little peasants
  38. Being just so crazy when you come into school with nail polish on :O

How to: Procrastinate

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Yeah, I ended up deciding to keep the name ๐Ÿ˜€ I know some of you didn’t want me to change it, so here you go! No changes in this department!

Onto today’s post. Today I will be sharing a part of my expertise with you. How to Procrastinate. Trust me, I am one of the biggest procrastinators in the whole world. Yet most of the time, I get stuff done eventually, so I’m not terribly lazy… I thought I’d share some of the ways that I procrastinate.

Just to let you know, if this post isn’t crazy detailed, it’s because I was writing this other post, decided it was no good, and started a new one now, as it’s 9:05pm…. Well done Jatm ๐Ÿ™‚

Read Old Texts

I do this a lot, especially if I’m feeling reflective, and want to go through how awkward first texts were with Penny to how comfortable we are with eachother now. Our WhatsApp chat is like the world’s Top Secret folder…. We share everything from guy talk to gossip and just about anything you can imagine…. Which mostly consists of our love for fictional characters…. This brings me onto my next point!

Look at Pictures of Attractive Celebrities

Another one, that I also do a lot! Just in case you are really wondering who I look at pictures of – it’s Captain Hook from Once Upon A Time. Ifย  you haven’t seen OUAT before then this will sound like the weirdest crush in the world but don’t worry, he doesn’t have wax moustaches and perms; more like guyliner and leather… To give you an example, on Christmas Morning, I woke up at 4 (yeah 4, I couldn’t sleep AT ALL), and was getting rather frustrated and bored with lying in bed doing nothing. I googled pictures of Captain Hook and I was occupied for quite some time.

HOOK OUAT
Sorry, I really thought this was necessary… I mean LOOK AT HIM โค

 

Social Media Stalking

I won’t tell too many people about this, other than Penny, and Brittany (another friend of mine) because I know very well that they do it too. But since I’m anonymous on here, it doesn’t really matter ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Usually I’ll start with someone that crops up in my twitter and they go to my school, and then it’ll lead to someone else, and someone else. Before you know it I’ll have gone through 10 twitter accounts and wasted about 20 minutes of my life… But sometimes that can be beneficial… Like the time I found the OUAT character look alike’s twitter account…. That was a jackpot!

Not Quite Stalking but Reading Accounts?

You know those accounts that just post really relatable, or just plainly hilarious tweets or pictures? Well, I’ve spent at least an hour before flicking through them, and cackling away from my bedroom. A couple of weeks ago, I was flicking through a twitter account, while my room was lit from theย daylight, and when I looked up from my phone, my bedroom was almost pitch black….

Trying on Random Things in your Bedroom

Sometimes, I’ll just get all of my earrings (like last night) and try them all on, twiddle and see which ones look nice, and in the end put he ones I was wearing originally back in… Sometimes it’ll be clothes, although pretty much the only things I own that still fit are superdry jumpers and primark jeans ๐Ÿ˜€ I basically just live in them…

Getting Deep into Youtube

Do you ever end up on a video on YouTube and wonder how on earth you got to that speck of the internet? Yeah, I do that a lot! I’ll start on one video, go to another, and another and another! Sometimes I’ll watch random tutorials that I don’t plan on using in my life, or hair tutorials that I’d love to use in my life but A) don’t have the stuff and/or B) I can’t do it. But let me tell you, the first time I did a fishtail braid was one of the most proud moments of my life

Google your Emotions

Again, this is another one that I have done on SO many occasions. If I’m missing Bob, for example, I’ll google “Missing your best friend quotes” and read through them, probably missing him even more by the end… But sometimes I find some really good ones that’ll make my twitter nice!

Doodling on Whiteboards

Two of some of my favourite things! If you knew me, chances are you’d probably know that I love using whiteboards (which makes my English teacher quite amazing because we use them most lessons… Thank you!) and I am a pro doodler. When I was younger, it was more faces (that probably looked terrifying), stars and superman logos (did any of you think you were a complete genius when someone showed you how to do that with the lines?). Probably a few failed attempts at drawing animals and cartoons too… But now, I’ll just doodle shapes and lines, or stuff to do with OUAT, or random words. But the whiteboard side of it is really good too, because it means that there’s less paper floating around your room!

Those are the ways I usually procrastinate, along with some music in the background usually! How do you procrastinate?

Chatting – and a big question for you!

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Today’s post will be a little more on the chatty side, so we can just talk? I haven’t done that in a while…

BUT! Before I get onto that (just saying, I don’t actually get onto that), I have a couple of things to address (oooh fancy! What’s up with me? ๐Ÿ˜€ )

  1. My school reports came home today :/
  2. SSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOO SOOOORRRYYYY
  3. The most awkward thing in the history of….. EVER

Okay so the first one, my school year got our reports given to us today, and well, let’s just say some of them are a little awkward ๐Ÿ˜€ Specifically – Drama. As a lot of you may already know, I’m not the most confident person in the world… So, being me, I find drama really difficult, and well, my report kind of just says that ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s basically, she can do “some” of this and has “some” ability in that… Oh deary me ๐Ÿ˜€ …

Well, yeah.

Another awkward, yet unknowingly awkward, part of the report was English. My English teacher said that to improve, I should startย a blog…….. I already have?? And I’ve been posting since July? ๐Ÿ˜€ Little does he know…

Since my blog is in fact – anonymous, I’m not comfortable with telling him about it… I just feel like it’d crop up in lesson, or at a parent’s meeting or something… And my mum would be rather awkward about that. Plus, I’m not completely comfortable with him knowing all of the personal things I put on here…. Like the panic attacks I had in October, or something I’ll be talking about in this post, if I ever get on to it… Teachers aren’t supposed to know that much about your life… Right? And, I feel like he’d be marking it all the whole time… Not a good idea

I should really split that up into paragraphs because that isย a very intimidating chunk of blog ๐Ÿ™‚

SECOND THING! I am SO sorry for not posting since last Thursday…. I’ve been very lazy lately and have just been sitting around watching OUAT non stop (I watched about 40 episodes in like 4 days…..) and that probably didn’t help with the writer’s block I’ve had. SO, I’m very sorry that I’ve already broken my new years resolution, and I’ll try as best as I can to get back on track.

THIRD

If you follow my twitter (justme292929) then you’ll know that something very awkward happened (I should really stop saying that) last Friday…

The tweet said:

“Logged into my personal email account at school, forgetting it was linked to WordPress… Big mistake… There were so many emails oh my god”

First of all, this was not just at lunch time. It was a literal lesson, with people (that I wouldn’t trust with any secrets) sat either side of me. So, we had to use our emails for converting this file thing, and I completely forgot that mine, was still linked to WordPress. Worst of all, that I haven’t touched it in forever. Literally.

So, there’s me, completely oblivious to what I am about to see, my gmail is taking forever to load (not surprisingly but it was at the time) and when it’s finally open, all’s I can see is

WordPress

WordPress

WordPress

All across my screen and I panicked. In my head. I panicked a lot. I said out loud (not actually sure why because it just would have drawn in more attention duh) “Let’s not go there” and exited the tab. Phew. Nobody had noticed.

“Just Average Teen Me? Oh god” said the person next to me.

I had zero idea how to respond, or what to do or anything in the entire world. So I pretended I hadn’t heard. I’m hoping he didn’t realise that was a blog, or that it was MY blog, or just that he remembered in the first place. He hasn’t brought it up so I should be okay. But then again, I haven’t been around him. So, hopefully he’s forgotten. But that doesn’t mean I have… He must have thought my blogging name was very clichรฉ and cheesy… Which made me think –

Should I change my blogging name? What do you all think? Please do leave your thoughts in the comments, and any names you might think would be good? Or should I just stick with Jatm?

Okay so what I had planned on posting about will have to be in the next post, because this post is getting pretty long!

Thank you SO much for reading! Make sure to like and follow if you like my blog and leave any thoughts or suggestions in the comments!

In 50 Years…

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. This is the first normal blog post I’ve done since the start of Blogmas! It feels like so long ago! Actually, if you count my favourites and look-aheads as normal then I guess this isn’t the first.

So, I thought I’d post something that might spark a bit of a conversation, where we can all share ideas. I thought something we can all relate to is time? And the future? So I decided to make a post on things in 50 years.

50 years ago, it was 1966. My grandparents were around my age. They definitely didn’t have the stuff we have today. So now imagine in 50 years from now. What will teenagers in 2056 have? And will we be the old people that don’t know how to use technology? New technology?

School

As I’m guessing, most of us are in high school. We have normal high school stuff. But what about students in 50 years? That could be our grandchildren. What will they have in their schools? Will they be in school for the same days and hours that we are? Or will they have school all week?ย  Could our generation be the old teachers that don’t know how to work the technology? Will they have new subjects?

Technology

Speaking of technology, do you think the technology in 50 years will be like the things in sci-fi movies? With holograms and hoverboards? What about phones? Will they even exist in 50 years? I’m not even sure when phones were invented in the first place! Let me google it quickly… In 1876 the first phone call happened. But that would have been a brick. Literally ๐Ÿ˜€ The first smartphone was made about 20 years ago, and it was no iPhone ๐Ÿ˜€ Now imagine 50 years! Who knows what it’ll be like!

Social Media

Social media is a huge part of our lives! I use mainly twitter, and wordpress – if you count that as social media. But it hasn’t been around for that long. The first social media site, called Six Degrees, was created in 1997. Almost 20 years ago. Will social media have died out altogether? Or will it just be an old people thing? ๐Ÿ˜€

Transport

I would LOVE to live to when everyone gets around in flying cars! Maybe even broomsticks but I doubt that will happen anyways. Will we all fly around in little personal aeroplanes? Or little helicopters? Could we end up with cars, that turn into boats and can fly? And are completely resistant to damage when crashing?

Entertainment

Entertainment is also a huge part of our lives. From video games, to TV, to listening to music, and going to concerts. Entertainment is EVERYWHERE except the history and Spanish lessons. But will people even have TVs in 50 years or will it just be us old people? What games will people play? Could it be even more realistic than the Oculus Rift Glasses? And what kind of music will they listen to? They’ll see Taylor Swift as we see our grandparents’ favourite singers!

Us

Will we be the typical old people that don’t have any idea what is going on? In 50 years, I see myself either retiring, or coming very close to it. Hopefully after a nice job, preferably a doctor. And I’ll hopefully have a husband and children (that will be older by now) that maybe have their own children!

Where do you see yourself in 50 years? And where do you see the world?

December Favourites

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. I know it’s kind of weird doing this post because December was kind of last year but I didn’t do in in December because of, well, blogmas, and New Year etc. So, now it’s time for my December Favourites (finally!)

Shower Lily

For Christmas, Penny bought me a shower set thing, called: The Pampery, Bath Time Take-away. Okay, I guess it was a bath set thing then. It came with a pinkย shower gel (which I have been using), a shimmer thing, actually, a shimmer body lotion (which I used once and looked like the queen of fairies or something so I probably shouldn’t use that again) and a shower lily/scrub thing. I haven’t used one of those before and now that I have used it, it’s so much better. I feel like it keeps your skin softer, and cleans it better than your hands would so YAY!

CHOCOLATE

Since it was Christmas month, I ate a LOT of chocolate! To be specific, 2 Galaxy Selection boxes (2 ripples, 4 smooth milk bars, 2 caramels, 2 minstrel bags, 2 counter bags and 2 bubbles), a Cadbury’s selection box (Curly Wurly, Chomp, Fudge and Dairy Milk), another Cadbury’s one (a crunchie, double decker (that actually I didn’t eat because it was disgusting), 2 dairy milks, buttons and fudge),ย a whole advent calendar (24 small pieces ofย  chocolate) andย almost 2 boxes of lindt lindors….. I have been terrible… But I loved it all! Except the double decker…. I didn’t love that at all!

Stocking Slippers

So, my grandma bought me some stocking/slippers that I have been wearing literally everyday since Christmas. They go about 3/4 of the way up your calf, and are SO FLUFFY on the inside! But they don’t appear to have a tag or anything so I can’t link you to it! Sorry! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Lucid Dreamer App

I have been using this app for a while, just for the journal part. Most of you will probably know I want to lucid dream, and to do that you should keep a dream journal. The problem is, I don’t have any spare notebooks around, and I’d rather not have several pieces of paper floating around. So recording them on my iPod is a much better idea! The app is just called Lucid Dreamer

The Christmas Candle

So, in my family, we have this amazing candle that we bought last year, and still had it this year. But we bought another too. It’s the ‘glade apple spice’ one. We got ours from B&M Bargains. The link is here if anyone wants a Christmas candle after Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enchanted Forest Colouring Book

My aunty got me one of the Johanna Basford books for Christmas, and I’ve done two of them. I did one on Christmas Eve and one the day before that. They’re really relaxing and surprisingly don’t make me frustrated at how long it takes ๐Ÿ˜€ And they look so pretty too! I really should do some more of some of them when I get the chance!

That’s everything! As you can see, there isn’t too much but hopefully January will be a little more interesting! I’m really sorry for not having a good thumbnail type thing, because I just really wanted to get this post up… It’s really late already!
