A Big Ol’ Favorites

Hey there friends. Yes you guys are my friends. 

I was thinking yesterday, and I realised that I haven’t done a favourites post in way too long. Im not sure how long exactly, but I don’t recall writing one for December.
Since it’s now March, I have a pretty solid opinion on a bunch of Christmas gifts and new splurges so it’s the perfect time to share them! Not to mention, I do love writing these. 😀

Imperial Leather – Mouthwatering Fruit Chew Shower Cream

I know, that’s a mouthful of a name, and could be a mouthful of soap if you don’t read the packaging! Rachel bought me this for Christmas, and I’ve used it every shower since. It claims to revitalise skin, and leave you feeling refreshed and smelling great. It smells incredible and definitely makes my skin feel super smooth. 

Ferrero Rocher

I’m not sure if you can get your hands on these outside the UK, so I’ll give you a little description. They’re basically a roasted hazelnut, in a ball of gooey chocolate, with a hard chocolate coating and then more hazelnut pieces around the outside. If you’re anything like me and would gladly live off hazelnut chocolate for the rest of your life, you’d probably like them. 🙂

MoonCup

If you read a recent post of mine, you’ll know that I have been introduced (by buzzfeed) to the blissful world of menstrual cups. I won’t ramble on too much, when you could just head on over here to read, but these are an absolute game changer. Mine’s Size B, which is for under 30 y/o who haven’t had any kiddos. 

Infinity Rises and Infinity Reborn – S. Harisson

You might remember that around a year ago, I read the first book in the Infinity trilogy. The entire plot captivated me from start to finish, and I was so excited to read the next two. Now that I finally have, I can safely say that they certainly lived up to my expectations, with the third one definitely exceeding! If you’re at all into sci-fi I really recommend checking them out! Even I’m not usually the biggest sci-fi fan but these are easily my favourite books!

Mistik Fragrance Diffuser 

This one’s a slight oddball one, but I thought it’d be nice to throw into the mix. I was in Aldi (British supermarket) with my mum a couple months ago, and stumbled across an ‘Apple and Cinnamon’ scented diffuser. I’d owned one diffuser (rose scented, if you’re interested) and really loved the whole idea, so I decided to buy it. Not to mention my undying love of anything cinnamon. It smells amazing, and has been lasting really well!

Snapchat

With Christmas being just a few months ago, I got a new phone (thank the lord). That meant I could finally get Snapchat. Having used a pretty disfunctional phone for two years prior to then, Twitter was the only social media I really used. So, Snapchat was pretty confusing at first, but it’s quickly become one of my favourites. If you’re wondering, the black and white sunglasses is my favourite filter. 😉

Teen Wolf Season 6

Anyone that knows me well is very aware that I’m a huge fan of the MTV series Teen Wolf. Every season has such an intriguing plot, and this season has been no exception. The ghost riders are really elaborate characters and the storylines are EMOTIONAL (Stydia shippers, I feel you) and I’m really hoping the next half of the season will be just as amazing!

Lacrosse Hoodie

While we’re on the topic of Teen Wolf, I thought I’d mention one of my Christmas presents. It’s a lacrosse hoodie from Beacon High (the school on teen wolf) with Lahey 14 on the back. Isaac is easily my favourite character in all of the 6 seasons, and I really hope he comes back at some point soon! But anyway, it’s a size too big, which makes it quite baggy, and pleases my fangirl heart since I can imagine it’s Isaac’s hoodie. Yep, I’m depressing, but you probably would too 🙂

Nspa 

As a Christmas gift, Britt got me a chocolate bar and a set of lip balms, because I’m always complaining about my dry lips. They’re made by nspa and it’s safe to say that they’ve quickly become a staple of mine! It came in three variations: Raspberry, Coconut, and my favourite, Shea Butter. They’re super moisturising and I haven’t complained about my lips nearly as much since I started using them! Definitely recommend!

That’s all for now! I guess I’ll see you next time then 🙂

Monthly Look-Ahead: MARCH 2017

BACK AGAIN HEY THERE

It’s been way too long since I did a Look-Ahead post, and I really do love writing them, so since it’s the first day of March I thought I’d get back into it!

Wow that was a pretty long sentence.

Anyways.

There’s a good bit to look forward to this month, so let’s get right into it, shall we?

Lenten Cake Stall

As you may already know, today is the first day of Lent (the buildup to Easter). I go to a Catholic school, because my family are Catholic, so our school does a lot of fundraising for charities. One of those things happens to be a lot of cake stalls. Since Year 7 (first year of high school) I’ve been a faithful customer to the graphics teacher’s tuck shop. That makes this year the fourth year of buying dozens of blueberry muffins over Lent. I love blueberry muffins, so what’s not to be excited for?

My Birthday

Another year has rolled around, and my birthday is just over a week away. I’ll be 15 on March 9th, which is next Thursday. Thankfully, it’s the one day of the week that I don’t have English. Actually, I’d say it’s one of my favourite days, lesson-wise! And then a few days later it’s Ashley’s birthday!

Mock Exams

Sure I’m not too thrilled by the prospect of sitting in an exam hall for hours taking exams but it gets me out of some lessons, which could be a bonus? Plus, I guess you could say it’s my only time to have lessons with Flynn, since we’ll all be in the hall at the same time! 😉

Passport Arrivals

You might remember that I’m going to Italy in October as a Geography school trip to the Bay of Naples (Pompeii and all that jazz). After the third time of sending passport forms off, we finally got a text to say that it had been posted and was on the way back. The first time, they needed proof that my new photo was still me, and the second time, the signatures weren’t right. Quite the hassle, but now that we’re finally there I’m just quite excited to have a passport for the first time in 10 years.

The Space Between Us

On February 10th (not sure why I remembered the exact date, but it’d be nice if I could remember my French that well), The Space Between Us was released in the UK. It’s a romance film about a boy who moved to Earth from Mars to be with a girl. I’m a huge sucker for romance movies and I’m not sure why I haven’t gotten around to seeing it, but I plan on doing in the next month!

Fixed Heating?

Since Saturday, the boiler in my house has broken, so we have no radiator heat, no hot water, and I’m pretty dang cold. I’ve been sat under several blankets the majority of the time, since it’s currently the coldest it’s been in a few weeks here in the UK. Tomorrow, though, there’s someone coming to take a look at it to see if they can fix it. Fingers crossed!

That’s everything (I think?) for March 2017!

BYEEEE 😛

P.S. Let me know some of your favourite romance films!

MAY FAVOURITES

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. First of all, if I come off as irritated or lazy in this post, it’s because I wrote it days ago, and my WiFi hasn’t worked since. I’m guessing it’s because of that, but the post isn’t even in my drafts… Not to mention the stuffy nose and cough I’ve been dealing with lately. 😦

Sorry about that, I’ll try as hard as I can to make this post as similar and entertaining as the first version…

So, a few things in this post will be revision related, with it having been exam season and all.

Handy Notepads

In early May when I was doing most of my revision, these were out constantly. I bought two of them at the start of the school year: one in pink, and another in purple, from Tesco if you’re wondering. If you’re looking for a good quality, supermarket notepad, I definitely recommend these, if they’re even still in stock at this time of year…. If not, I saw some really nice ones in BnM Bargains! Anyways, I’ve been using those a loooot this month! 😀

Gel Pens

On the topic of revision, I’m the kind of person who likes to visualise things when I’m trying to remember them during a test. I’ve found that the best way to do that is through colour coding everything. I code the different types of plate margins, types of R.E. questions, you name it! So, as you can imagine, I was slightly worried when my fine liners (If you don’t have any, I really recommend getting some of these too!)  ran out… until I found my several year old pencil case filled with every coloured gel pen you can imagine. Aside from the smudging, these worked just as well! And everyone knows, if you have gel pens you’re winning at life! 😉

Sherlock

Recently, I’ve been rewatching the BBC Series Sherlock. If you’re a Sherlock fan, you’ll know that it’s been years since season three, and probably understand how it feels to have to wait all that time. During the hiatus, I’ve re-watched the whole thing several times, which really doesn’t take long since there are only three episodes in every season. Anyways, even hearing the soundtrack made me realise how much I’d missed Sherlock for the last 3 or 4 months where I hadn’t watched it. I’d missed Moriarty, too.

*Prays that there’s a Sherlock fan out there who understood that pun* But really, Moriarty is one of the reasons I watch Sherlock in the first place. 😀

7/27 Fifth Harmony

I’m not sure if I mentioned it in my last favourites post, but I’ve been loving 5H’s music lately, as of about April. If you’re a fan of them too, you’ll know that their album, 7/27 was released late in May. I downloaded it the day it came out and fell in love with every track. Apart from the early releases: Work from Home (one of my favourites ever), Write on Me and The Life, my favourite newer songs are I Lied and Scared of Happy. I absolutely love the vibe of all the new songs, and can’t wait to listen to them all Summer!

Once Upon a Time Season 5

Back to TV shows again! Some of you may already know – who am I kidding, all of you probably know by now – about my slight obsession with OUAT. If any of you guys are up to date with it, you’ll know that the season finale aired in May. IT WAS AMAZING AND THE PLOT TWISTS AND NEW CHARACTERS AND RUMBELLE! Basically, it’s a slight overload on my emotions, but not as much as the several month wait we have until season 6.

Also can we just talk about Lea Michele and Dean Geyer’s harmonies? Totally of topic, but I just ended up on their cover of Give Your Heart a Break…

Stack – Ketchapp

Although I deleted this app to make room for others, that was in this month. In May, I loved it. If you’re a fan of quick arcade games to play while you’re on the bus, I really suggest checking out a few ketchapp apps if you haven’t already! I played this one for days and days when I was on the bus!

That’s everything I can remember from the first time I wrote this! I hope you enjoyed reading! Make sure to let me know what you’ve been loving last month!

BYE! 😀

MARCH FAVOURITES

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. As most of you, or those that have been here for over a month, will know, I do a monthly favourites post, which I love to do very much. And since today is almost the end of March, I thought I would write it now!

First of all, I am very sorry for missing the last two post days…. With Sunday being Easter, it was really difficult to squeeze in any time to blog, with all the family stuff going on and whatnot. And yesterday, the WiFi was dodgy, and everyone was upstairs… Which obviously makes blogging in secret kind of difficult… So today will be my post that should have been written for yesterday! Just in case you don’t already, following me on twitter (@justme292929) will mean that you get told when I am not going to be posting, and  any other random things that are happening in my life.

So at this point, you all know that it’s been my birthday before now since a lot of these are birthday presents… 🙂

Okay I know I’ve been rambling forever, so here we go!

Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

This was something I got for my birthday. It’s a book, if you didn’t already know. It’s very relatable, extremely adorable, very emotionally intense (it makes me ship Cath and Levi so much) and I love the pictures on the inside cover. It’s so cute. If you aren’t someone that reads a lot, I would definitely recommend this book, because it isn’t written as creatively (with long words and confusing sentences) as some other books are.

Infinity Lost – S. Harrison

This is another amazing book that I received for my birthday. Being the first book of a trilogy, it really does a good job of hooking you in. I would say that this one is quite the opposite to Fangirl, although I loved it nonetheless. This one is definitely very intense, and so unpredictable, which is one of the reasons I love it so much. As of now, I’m pondering whether to spend £8.99 on book two….  And I’m not the type who enjoys spending my own money… 😉

Kit Kats

I know this is a totally random one to throw in here, but I always have oddball ones floating around, right? I mean, once it was bagels, then pancakes – now Kit Kats! So, since it was Easter on Sunday, one of the Easter eggs I got was a Kit Kat one. For some reason, since I was little, I dug myself into a hole of “I don’t like Kit Kats” So I guess since then I’ve just given my Kit Kats to other people? I don’t remember eating many in my life. Anyways, I tried the Kit Kat Crunchy that came with the Easter egg and it was actually really tasty… Lesson learned: Don’t trust your younger self’s assumptions ❤

The Vamps

Never in my life did I think I’d be saying this. If you showed this to a 10 year old me, I’d have physically recoiled and been utterly disgusted. But I’ve been listening to The Vamps… Quite a lot… It started in late February, when they were on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and it’s still going now. Some of my favourites are Shout About It, Volcano, and Brad’s cover of Hallelujah. So there you guys have it, I have been listening to a band, of boys. :O

Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway

As I mentioned in the above one, I watch Ant and Dec. I’m not sure if it’s finished or not yet though…? Anyways, it’s really funny, although nothing will ever top when they had Louis Walsh on a couple of years ago. Find it on youtube! It’s hilarious! But yeah, so I have been loving that every week!

Face Masks

I hadn’t used a face mask in so long, until about a few weeks ago. It was pale blue, and I think it was called dead sea? 7th Heaven are a great face mask company thing if you don’t already! The one I used was made out of stuff from the dead sea, which I thought was quite interesting, and strange to have on my face. I’d type some of the ingredients but the packaging is in the bin… :/ Anyways, if you’re getting a face mask, I’d get one that peels off because the others can be a little difficult!

Once Upon A Time Season 5B

As you may know, OUAT returned for the second half of the fifth season on the 6th March. I was beyond excited, and needed my fill of OUAT desperately. Every episode gets better than the last and it’s getting very intense on my emotions – yes I have cried a lil bit on the last two episodes… It isn’t even anything really sad; I’m just emotionally connected to these characters! NOBODY UNDERSTANDS! RUMPLE 😥 Anyways, it has been awesome, and I can’t wait for more episodes!

And that is some of the things I have been loving in March! I’ll have my April look-ahead on Thursday, which I am very-much excited for!

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!

What have you been enjoying this March??

SEE YOU ON THURSDAY! 😀

FEBRUARY FAVOURITES

Hi,

I’m  Just Average Teen Me. As you’ll know, it’s that time of the month – hang on, I need to rephrase that. It’s the beginning of March, which means that February is finito, which also means that IT’S TIME TO WRITE A FAVOURITES POST! I’m not completely sure what I’ll be putting in here, but we’ll see as I go along 😀

1010 Block King

I got this game early in the month, and rarely stopped playing it the whole time. If you don’t know, it’s kind of like Tetris, but you don’t have to drop it to the bottom; the blocks can just float around. Also, there are a bunch of different modes to play in. Personally, my favourite is the ‘Stages’ mode, where you complete a bunch of levels (I’m on 50). The others are: Classic, Arcade and Time. If you’re someone that has to get on a bus to school, and it can take a good while sometimes, this is a great bus game! I warn you, though, it’s very addictive!

Beauty Blenders

I know, I’m super late to catch onto this craze. Just in case you aren’t sure on what beauty blenders are, then let me enlighten you: they’re basically weird shaped sponges that you use to blend your makeup, instead of a brush. In the week off school we had, I was out in the town centre, and I nipped into Primark with Bob (I had an awesome time out with him). While I was in there, my eyes were caught by the beauty stand, and although I’m not crazy about makeup or anything, all the brushes and blenders did kind of excite me. In the end, I wound up picking up a two-pack beauty blender set. One is lighter pink, and wobbly shaped like a peanut (Sorry; I’m useless at describing things) and the other is a darker pink and more egg shaped? But anyways, I’ve been loving how easy they work! And it was only £1.50!

Collection – Lasting Perfection Concealer

Along the lines of beauty, while I was out with Bob, I decided to venture into the realm of Superdrug, which was a first for me; previously, I’ve been more of a Boots kind of girl. I won’t lie, I found the layout of all the shades of makeup really satisfying but anyways, I bought the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (in fair 1 if you’re interested). I’ve been using it for almost two weeks now, and dare I say, I LOVE IT! It stays on for longer than my old one, which may or may not be kind of ironic because that one was called ‘Stay time’. By the time I get home from school, I don’t look like a trainwreck yet so all is good. Although the tube is slightly smaller, the consistency is thicker and goes further with better coverage, so it will probably last me a similar length of time. For anyone interested, it was £4.19.

Lemon Muffins from Costa

Some of you might already know, but for those of you that don’t, I am a massive Costa-goer. Usually, I’ll go for a hot chocolate, but when I was out with Bob, I decided to get myself a lemon muffin and obviously a hot chocolate (I can’t just go to Costa and not get one). As a huge lemon cake fanatic, there was only a slim chance that I wouldn’t like it. Which probably would only have happened if there was something alive inside it or something. But there wasn’t anything alive in it. Lemony flour dust or something was dusted on the top, and on the inside, there was a lemony gooey thing that tasted amazing! It wasn’t too sour, as some things like that can be, but was strong enough for the aftertaste to last a whole day, which I am not complaining about!

Ridiculously Fluffy Pyjamas

For Christmas, my Grandma bought be some reaaallly fluffy pyjamas. Lately, the UK has been really cold at nights, or so I’ve been feeling, and my normal pyjamas just aren’t cutting it. So I resorted to these. In case you’re wondering, they’re from BHS. I tried to find a link to them on the website, but I can’t see them in the pyjama section… Sorry about that! 😦 But anyways, I sleep so much better in these and don’t wake up freezing! ❤

Listening to the tiny bits of songs that you can listen to on iTunes

Okay so I’m a strange person and listen to the short bits of songs that you can listen to on iTunes. I didn’t know you could actually do that until earlier in the month, and since then it’s kind of become a little thing I do when I have nothing else to do. As weird as it is, I don’t actually mind only having to listen to a bit of it. Although it does mean you need WiFi. Or your mobile data if you’re on a phone; I’m on my iPod. I have spent about an hour doing this before so if you’re anything like me it could become addictive. Just in case you don’t know how to, just go onto the album, click a song and it should start playing a preview! 😀

That’s quite a long post so I think I’ll end it here!

What have you been enjoying this month?

JANUARY FAVOURITES

Yes the capitals were necessary don’t question me

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. At the moment, I’m finishing my big Galaxy bar (currently eating the last piece) before the pain from my – awh it’s gone – braces really kicks in and I can’t eat anything other than eggs, porridge and yogurt. And my next appointment is in April and it isn’t even the last one and I thought it would be. How nice. And depressing.

BUT ONTO SOMETHING POSITIVE!

It’s time for my monthly favourites ❤

I absolutely love these posts, and I’m not completely sure why but I just DO

So, here are some of the things I have been loving this month.

Once Upon A Time Box Sets

I have seen all of the OUAT episodes out as of now, but I got the box sets for Christmas so I can watch them on my TV, and for about a week or two, all I did was sit and watch them. I did literally nothing. Probably the peak of minimal exercise and laziness, but who cares I loved it. All of the weekends, until late at night, before school in the morning and after school in the evening. Yeah, I’m past there now so I’m moving around again 😀

Geometry Dash – Meltdown

So, last time I played Geometry Dash, was probably about a year ago, and the last level was “Time Machine”. I am quite sure that I completed all of the levels, if not, then I only missed the last one. But I was on that all the time too (This favourites has become an addiction post 🙂 ) And when I was on the Play Store the other day, I saw that there was another game called “Geometry Dash – Meltdown”. It’s kind of a smaller version of the first Geometry Dash, but it’s still fun and I am currently 64%  through the last level. If you haven’t played Geometry Dash, then go for it, if you don’t mind having your life taken over 😉

THE TINY BIT OF SNOW THAT WE HAD

So, part way through January, we had some actual snow. There wasn’t much but at least it was something. And with the size of my family, it was all squished into the ground and muddy within 10-15 minutes of being outside which is always a bonus. Gotta love that gross slush stuff 😦 But while it lasted, it was really fun and exciting, because we haven’t had actual snow that we can go out and build snowmen in for a looooong while. Crossed fingers it will snow a little lot more this month?

Seventeen Stay Time Concealer

If you read my previous post, you’ll know that I have really nearly finished my concealer, and I’ll be needing a new one very soon. And since I have enjoyed it while it lasted, I thought it would be appropriate to throw it in here with my favourites! It lasted since the beginning of July, although I haven’t worn it everyday. But that’s quite a while! And I’m hoping the next brand I get will last just as long!

Vaseline

I’m not sure why I’ve chucked this in here; I guess I have been using it a lot. My lips have been really dry lately, and I thought I’d just use Vaseline, which I have bee doing for a while now. It’s kind of annoying in the wind, with my long hair and such, but it’s better than not using any and having sore lips. Although, it isn’t working amazingly well. So, if any of you have any suggestions for lip moisturizers/balms or anything like that (quite cheap please; I don’t like spending my money)  then make sure to let me know in the comments!

This Weird Pen

So, at an enrichment-sort-of day where we were talking to colleges and stuff in school, I was given a pen from one of the representatives. And at first I was like yeah okay it’s a pen. But after using it on my Religion homework, I literally fell in love with it. For some strange reason, it makes my writing look really even and nice (I get told I have nice writing anyways, but I don’t see it. The pen made me see it) and I was so happy. Sad, right? OH MY GOD THERE’S A MOTH ON MY DESK WHAT DO I DO? I’LL BLOW OH NO IT’S FLYING. Phew it’s a little higher now so I won’t get murdered. ANYWAYS, on the topic of that pen, get your tissues ready. I lost it. *claps* well done me. I think Ashley may have inherited it but I wont bring it up to save the awkwardness

And that my friends, is everything I can think of at the moment. And quick shoutout to Elm who did AMAZING on her mock exams *claps and cheers*

What have you been loving this January?

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 pink 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), a whole advent calendar (24 small pieces of  chocolate) and 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! 😦

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! 😉

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 😀 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!

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!

November Favourites

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Today, I am writing my November Favourites! Yay! The last few months have gone insanely quick! So, I’m not entirely sure what’ll be in there just yet but we’ll see what comes into my head!

Old School Taylor Swift

So at the moment I’m kind of addicted to Taylor’s first 3 albums (Taylor Swift, Fearless and Speak Now). In particular, Sparks Fly, Teardrops on my guitar and Better than Revenge. You might think they’re all sort of linked. And you’re right. I might tell you about it in another post!

My Noticeboard

Well, the part of this that made it go into my favourites was the whiteboard part. My noticeboard has two sections: one for pinning things up and the other is a whiteboard. I’ve had it for a few years now and it’s only just struck me that I could use it for revision! If you’re like me, and revise by writing out WAY too many notes (once I filled a whole notebook on one test) then you should totally invest in a whiteboard! If you want to keep your notes, then just take a picture on your phone! Coloured pens I found are good for revising too!

Pop Tarts

If you don’t know what Pop Tarts are then read this! It’s the description on the box!

“Apple and cinnamon fruit filling in a pastry with a sugar topping”

That’s just the flavour that I have at the moment. They’re SO tasty! But I don’t recommend eating too many at once… I felt a little sick after eating

WhatsApp

I have had WhatsApp since early January this year. And I’ve used it since then. But I’ve decided to put it in my favourites because I’ve been using it A LOT lately! If your phone contract doesn’t let you send picture messages then you should totally get whatsapp! You can send voicemails, images, emojis, have group chats, or single chats, see when people have read your messages and best of all it’s free for the first year! Oh and it has no ads! If you decide to keep it for another year it’s only 69p! I’d say it’s completely worth it!

Gloves

This probably sounds a bit weird… Basically now that it’s getting cold , my gloves have come back out! Yay! Weirdly, I find that wearing gloves even without a coat makes the rest of you a whole lot warmer. It’s probably physiological but still! Mine aren’t anything  special, just plain light brown gloves. And wearing gloves makes me excited for wintery weather!

B&M Bargains

For those of you that don’t know about b&m, it’s a shop, that sells things for really cheap! Kind of like Home Bargains. Anyways, I’ve used it for Regina’s birthday present (that might sound really evil but it was actually a good present and she loved it) and for the whole squad’s Christmas presents! And it’s all quite cheap! 2! Not to mention they’re probably

That’s everything I can think of at the moment! I’ll have another post coming either tomorrow or Monday but it should come sometime soon!

October Favourites!

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Happy November! Since October is finished, it’s time for my monthly favourites!!! YAY! Actually, I’m not that sure what I have been loving this October…. I guess I’ll have to remember!

Reggie ‘N’ Bollie

reggie and bollie

So, if you don’t watch X-Factor, then you won’t know who these guys are. Basically, they’re a duo, and they’re just so energetic and fun! They’re my favourites to win on X-Factor this year!

Girl Online On Tour

goot

If you don’t already know, a YouTuber called Zoella aka Zoe Sugg released a sequel to her first book Girl Online earlier this month. I was so excited to be getting a signed copy and to read the book. Within 48 hours of the book arriving, I had finished it… That’s pretty quick for me! It was amazing!

Glee Forever

GLEE_GLEE_Forever!

So, glee is one of my all time favourite TV shows and they released a game for android and apple called Glee Forever and I’m addicted… :/

Pop The Lock

pop-the-lock

Okay so I literally just installed this about 5 minutes ago but it’s SO fun so far! I couldn’t not add it! I’m not sure how long it will stay fun but for now it’s really addictive!

Once Upon A Time Season 5

So now that Once Upon A Time is actually getting into the season I’m questioning whether it’s the best season they’ve had so far…. The plot is so different to what they’ve had before and it’s just so exciting! I actually just finished watching a new episode and it was AMAZING! RUMPLESTILTSKIN WHOOOOO!

New Coat!

Since it’s getting quite cold from time to time, I decided to buy a new coat! This was quite early in October I think… But anyways, I bought it from Matalan and it’s called a Borg Lined Parka. I’m not really sure what any of that means but it’s a nice coat! The inside is really fluffy and warm and the whole thing is just amazing! Except the hood is a bit too big for my head but that just makes it cosier! If you would like the link then

Costa

This isn’t something I do all the time, it was just a one off for in the holidays… I went to Costa with my best friend Bob because we haven’t seen each other since my birthday back in March. We had an awesome time, it was amazing to be back with him and the Costa was delicious too! Hot chocolate is perfection. And I was wearing my new coat. And I was sat with my best friend. Actually, I even managed to drag him into Primark! 😉

A Teeny Weeny Christmas Tree

Okay, you’re probably thinking I’m insane, but Christmas is my favourite time of the year, and I just so happened to find a teeny Christmas tree (it’s only about the size of my hand) in my wardrobe! So I have put it by my bedroom window and it’s making me very excited!!! AHHH I JUST LOVE CHRISTMAS!

That’s everything I can think of at the moment! Sorry I couldn’t get very many… 😦

September Favourites!

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. I know this post is quite late, but better late than never! Everything has been quite busy lately if you were wondering why I’ve took so long to write this post. Let’s start!

  • Nail File

I know a lot of people cringe at the words Nail File, me included, but I have found one, that doesn’t actually involve the cringing. When I say found, I mean my Grandma bought it me last Christmas (along with a whole nail set thing) and I just started using it… Sorry Grandma… But thank you! It isn’t one of the metal ones, that’s making me cringe just thinking about it! It’s more like sandpaper but not as harsh… And on a flat oval-ish bar thing. Basically what I’m trying to say, is that I have been using it a lot!

  • Raspberry Sundae Yankee Candle

It’s getting nearer to cold time, and my mum bought a box of Yankee candles. This one was my favourite. It smelled incredible. She only bought the really tiny ones so I was quite disappointed when we’d ran out… I love candles, how they just make everything so cosy and warm even though that tiny flick of fire probably does next to nothing to warm up the room…

  • Apple Crumble Yankee Candle

This was my second favourite candle out of the three that she bought (the other was vanilla something… I can’t quite remember but I didn’t like that one. Too sickly sweet). It literally smells like someone is baking an apple crumble in the kitchen. It smells like cinnamon, with a bit of apple. This one is the most cosy smelling (I don’t think that’s really a thing but never mind…) out of the three.

  • Once Upon A Time in Wonderland

Earlier in September, my dad introduced me to Once Upon A Time in Wonderland. It’s made by the Once Upon A Time people, but set in Wonderland and Old England. It’s about Alice trying to find her true love (Cyrus the genie) and prove to her father that Wonderland is real. I was quite disappointed that it was only thirteen episodes long but it was amazing! The plot was really interesting and the characters were amazing. You should totally watch it if you like stuff like that!

  • Sticky Back Plastic

Since it was back to school month, my sticky back plastic got used a lot! I backed most of my books with it, and on my own! There were a few awkward air bubbles but never mind… I’m only stuck with them for another year!

  • Planning stuff

This might actually sound a bit weird, but I have been planning things a lot better now. I have started using my notice board again, and it makes everything so much easier! And I made my timetable to put up on it too! It’s all colourful and looks so much nicer than the one’s school gives us!

  • The Sims Resource

If you play the sims, and use custom content in your game, you’ve probably heard of TSR/The Sims Resource. It’s a website, where you can download free custom content for all of the sims games, for free! There have been rumours, that it contains viruses or malware, but in the couple months that I’ve been using it, nothing has happened to my laptop. It seems to be the easiest way to download cc for sims anyway!

  • Halls Soothers

So, there are some quite nasty colds going around, and typically, I got it. 😦 I’m getting a lot better, but my throat isn’t feeling the best because of the coughing that comes with the cold… So my mum bought a pack of Halls Soothers, in blackcurrant flavour. They’re really minty actually (almost too minty) but they work really well! 😀

That’s everything for September! What have you been loving last month? I’d love to hear in the comments! 😀
