Who doesn’t love a good shopping spree? Well, besides my purse, I think most people would agree that splurging is so therapeutic, even if it only moves my worries from school life and friendship dramas to the sudden drop in my savings. 😉

A couple of weeks ago, I had a rather daring day out and managed to fill a huge Primark bag with both Primark things, and a few bits and bobs from elsewhere (that’s a lie, it was a lot of bits and bobs…).I think we should get into it!

First stop: Primark!

Turquoise Summer Print Tie Top – £6.00 (UK Size 4)



High-Waisted Blue Jeans – £9.00 (UK Size 6)



Cropped Purple Hoodie – £7.00 (UK Size 4)


Button-up Denim Shirt – £8.00 (UK Size 4)


California Print T-Shirt – £2.50 (UK Size 6)

Onto Boots!

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – £4.19 (Shade: Fair 1)


Collection Speedy Highlighter – £3.99 (Pearl Sheen)


Barry M Feature Length Mascara – £4.99


Barry M Mist & Fix Setting Spray – £4.99 (Matte)


Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit – £6.99 (Shade: Blowout)


And that’s what happened when I took to town! To save boring anyone, I took out a few oddball things like grey t-shirts (gotta have some, am I right?), socks and razors, etc/.

What are your favourites?

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Welcome to Day 5 of Blogmas!




Less than a week to go; we’re really getting close now! As it’s round about the time that people are frantically running around shop after shop, trying to find the last gifts for family and friends, I thought I’d give you a little hand – with the friends part, anyway.

Having to buy Christmas presents for my own friends, I know how awkward it is when you really have no clue whatsoever what to buy, and how nerve-wracking it can be. For this post, though, I shall step in as your Fairy Godmother, and hopefully give you a few ideas to use! 😀

Selection Boxes

I get how easy it is to overlook the most simple gift ideas when you’re speed-walking around a shop with no idea what to pick up, but selection boxes are literally presents (already made) and are bound to be in countless shops nearby. Who doesn’t love chocolate?

Their Favourite PopTarts

PopTarts: Gods of the breakfast world. I don’t think I’ve ever met someone that doesn’t love them, and if you’re in the UK, where not all the shops sell them, it’s even better, since it’s more of a surprise. Honestly, I’d be more than happy if someone bought me a box of PopTarts for Christmas, so that’s exactly what I’ve done – for my friends, not for me.

Tiny Christmas Decor

Since it’s Christmas, why not splurge on something that’s actually Christmassy? For instance, last year, I bought little lava lamp (kind of?) things with a snowman and a lot of glitter inside. This year, I bought some jar/mug things with a straw coming through a screw-on lid. If your friends are very pinterest-esque, and like to take photos of things, these would be a great idea!

Something Arty

If you really are running behind, and don’t have much time to head out to the shops, but you do have some spare artsy skills that can be put to good use, then grab some paper, a pencil and make something! It could be a picture, painting, or a comic strip of something funny that happened between you. You could use technology to make it, or do it by hand. Whatever floats your goat (yes I said goat).

Personalised T-Shirts

This one’s super easy if you have a little longer to spare, or if you can get it shipped within the timespace you have left, as most of these will have to be ordered online. If your friend has a crazy celebrity crush, you could buy a Mrs *insert celebrity’s name here* shirt, or if you have an inside joke/codename you could use that!

That’s everything I thought of for todays blogmas! Hopefully it was helpful to somebody out there!


Happy Blogmas!

I’m Just Average Teen Me. After several weeks of not posting, I am finally back! For those of you who don’t follow my blogging twitter, I have been abducted by the world of aliens. If revision counts as aliens, that is. Hang on, I’m just going to check how long it’s been.  *** 25th April. So, about 2 and a half weeks. It feels like so much longer! Let’s just say, I’ve missed your faces, well not your faces because this is a website but hey! I’ve missed blogging, and it’s nice to be back!

Let’s get on with the actual post then, shall we?

Ally Carter – I’d tell you I love you, but then I’d have to kill you

Oh it’s my favourites, by the way.

As insane as that may sound to any of you who haven’t read this book, it’s actually extremely entertaining, and relatable for that matter. As I do with a lot of books, I’ll type up the blurb.

“Gallagher Academy isn’t a school for geniuses, it’s a school for spies…

Cammie Morgan might be capable of killing a man in seven different ways, but she’s about to begin her most dangerous mission yet: falling in love”

And now you probably understand that it isn’t as violent as it seems. If I’m not mistaken, there are 5 other books in the Gallagher Girls/Ally Carter series. I’ll definitely be trying to get my hands on a few of the others when I can! As well as Infinity Rises, which I am DESPERATE to read!

Black Jeans – Primark

As I said in my April look ahead, I planned on buying some black jeans, and that’s exactly what I did. Just a couple days later. Unfortunately, I couldn’t see any high waisted ones, which if you know me, are my equivalent of heaven. Normal jeans are fine too though. So, they’re black, have a little button at the top, and belt hooks, which is always a good thing. Obviously, they’re skinny ones, too. In case you’re wondering, I bought them in UK size 6 long, which actually is a little too long, but I quite like having them thick/ruffled/bunched at the bottom. And if I ever feel like it, which I’m sure I will at some point, I could always roll up the cuffs. 😀


As a huge hot chocolate fanatic, it’s only reasonable that I am always in utter love with the coffee scented haven that is Starbucks. In April, I went twice, one time I got a hazelnut hot chocolate, which was incredibly delicious (and also 600 calories – no regrets) and then the other time, I opted for my usual – Hot chocolate with cinnamon.

Easter Eggs

Fun fact: I like to make my chocolate last as ridiculously long as I can. But who doesn’t? I had my Easter eggs for about a week, which meant that they lasted into April, so they count, right? Who doesn’t love chocolate? It deserves to be in here 😀

Chocolate in general

I know, it has now been about 2 months since my birthday, but in April, I finished my birthday chocolates. I’m not actually sure if I’ve told you the excessive amount that I ate but I think now’s a good time anyway.

  • 6 jam tarts from my Grandma (I know, not chocolate)
  • A box of Viennese Chocolate Fox biscuits
  • A box of Lindt Lindors (my absolute most favourite chocolate EEEVVAAAAARRRRRRR)
  • 8 single Hot Fudge Sundae Pop Tarts
  • A pack of double stuff Oreos
  • A big dairy milk bar
  • A rather large box of dark chocolates (double layers! 😉 )
  • An Easter bunny
  • The rest of my Easter eggs

Honestly, I’m impressed my body even managed to keep itself functioning and alive after all of that 😀

A Certain Somebody

I know, I’m anonymous on here, but I’m still  not comfortable with letting you in on this massive secret, just in case any of my friends secretly stalk my blog… Basically, for the last few months, I’ve been head-over-heels in love with this ‘celebrity’. Within my friendship group, we call him * insert celebrity’s name here *. Ashley’s pretty sure she knows who it is, but I’m hoping she’s wrong. There’s something about having a secret that nobody knows that just makes me so happy, you know? That you’re the only one in the world who knows!

Kelsea Ballerini

On the topic of music, I’ve been loving Kelsea Ballerini (a new discovery of mine)! She has a song for pretty much every mood you can possibly be in. My personal favourite is Yeah Boy, which I may or may not completely relate to. Stilettos is also a very relatable and empowering one. And Xo is perfect to bounce around your room like a superstar to. Make sure to check her out!


Need I say any more? I’m just repeating myself 😀


A recent download of mine, which has definitely taken over my life, is Spotify! It’s actually how I found some of the new music I’ve been listening to lately (Kelsea, Lawson and revisited old McFly)

That’s everything I can think of, and this post is getting pretty long!


Do you think I should do a May look-ahead, since we’re already almost half way through May anyways?
