20 QUESTIONS ABOUT ME TAG

Hello blogosphere!

Today, I was nominated by the lovely Regina aka Diversion3000 to do the 20 Questions About Me Tag. These questions seem quite fun to answer, hence the getting onto it so quickly (shocker, I’m actually posting – this is not a drill)

Since there don’t seem to be any rules for this tag, let’s get right to the questions, shall we?

1 – Are you named after anyone?

As for my first name, I don’t think I am. I know my middle name came from my mum’s sister, so my auntie.

2 – When was the last time you cried?

I’m actually a really emotional person, when I’m alone (I’m pretty good at keeping stuff to myself and haven’t actually cried in front of anyone in YEARS). Anyway, last time I cried was probably a few days ago when I watched Everything Everything. I loved it, but it did get me a lil bit emotional!

3 – Do you have kids?

If you count the many celebrities I’ve mentally adopted as my babies, then yes I have many kids. Biological kids? Hah, I’m 15 and the most interaction I’ve had with any guys I like is discussions about school… So no, I don’t have any kids.

4 – If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE – I’m kidding, I think? I actually think about this kind of thing a lot. Wondering how other people see me has always been kind of interesting, and I guess I’d have to be in the situation to know. To be quite honest, I honestly don’t know.

5 – Do you use sarcasm a lot?

I do indeed. A lot of the time it gets taken out of context and slaps me straight in the face, which isn’t great but it’s all good; I make myself laugh, at least.

6 – What’s the first thing you notice about people?

Posture. I seem to pick up on body language and how a person holds themselves in situations quite quickly. So, if I’m trying to talk to someone and they’re slouchy and uninterested, I’ll notice that pretty soon.

7 – What is your eye colour?

I never know whether to say blue or green. My eyes are mainly blue I guess, and that’s what it says on my passport, but I have a ring of green around my pupils, that then merges into the blue. It’s all very confusing, but my eyes are one of my favourite things about myself, physically. 🙂

8 – Scary movie or happy ending?

Happy ending, all the way. I’m not a fan of scary movies at all, and I’ll avoid them as much as I can. There’s something about happy endings that just put me in such a good mood, and fills my heart for quite a while after! I’m thinking of getting a post up about some of my favourite happy films, so keep an eye out! (shameless self-promo)

9 – Do you have any special talents?

I can binge entire TV shows in pretty short spaces of time and quickly become emotionally attached to celebrities and fictional characters…. I guess I can play guitar quite well , too.

10 – Do you have any pets?

I have two doggos, and a bunch of fish. 🙂

11 – What is your dream career?

See, I’m not exactly sure what I want to be when I’m older. I used to want to be a doctor, but I kind of grew out of that, since I’m not all too interested in it anymore, not to mention I’m quite squeamish. I know I want my job to have something to do with Geography, because that’s probably what I’ll be doing at university.

12 – Who was your first best friend?

Ohhh the nostalgia. When I was three or four, I met a girl at playgroup (similar to Kindergarten I think?), who I ended up being really close with until I was eleven. When we switched to high school, she changed so quickly, and we just drifted apart.

13 – How tall are you?

I’m 5’6, which is 167cm. I’m fairly average height, I think? I’m happy here though, and I haven’t grown in years so I reckon this is my final height 🙂

14 – How many countries have you visited?

England (I live here), Wales (I had to google if it was a country), USA (My dad’s family all live there, so we’ve visited them a few times, and I went to Disney World Florida once). And that’s all! I’ve not been abroad in almost 11 years, so I’m pretty nervous about getting on a plane!

15 – What was/is your favourite/worst subject in High School?

Currently, my favourite subject is Geography. It’s a super chilled out lesson (and we still manage to get work done?), and it’s topics that I’m actually interested in for the majority. A lesson that I really dread is English. I know, I’m a blogger, I should enjoy English, but I just really don’t like the way we have to learn it. The fun of reading and learning to write more creatively is kind of stripped away if you get me? SCREW YOU EDUCATION SYSTEM!

16 – What is your favourite perfume?

I don’t really use perfumes, but I have a Superdry body spray, and I LOVE it!

17 – What would you name your children?

I have given this quite a bit of thought actually, and I love the name Quinn for a girl. I used to be pretty self-conscious (I still am, I guess, but it’s miles better), and I found that giving myself a little alter-ego seemed to help that, so I’d try to get into the mindset of Quinn Fabray from Glee (she’s a really strong character, and she dealt with a lot on the show). I guess I’d just hope that my own child can feel comfortable with herself, too. 🙂

18 – What sports do you play/ have you played?

I’m really not that sporty. I work out alone, at home every now and then (I’ve been useless this holidays) but I guess I play tennis sometimes in the park. 🙂

19 – What phone do you currently use?

Moto E 3rd Generation (White)

20 – Tell us one of your bad habits!

Oooohhhh, I crack my knuckles a lot….. It drives my mum insane, but I just can’t help it! Anyone else who cracks their knuckles will definitely understand! 😀

And that’s all the questions answered! Onto the nominations!

BLOLIDAYS #4 – 44 Shaving Things

It’s been a damn while since I last did one of these posts (if you’re relatively new, I sometimes do posts where I’ll list 44 things to do with a certain topic), and with it being summer, more people will be shaving than in winter, I’m assuming? Unlike me, who literally never leaves the house anyway, and wears jeans 24/7. It’s all good, though, I live in the UK so it’s never that warm anyways. 🙂

HOWEVER, with being a fifteen-year-old girl, who has to do PE in a short skort (hybrid skirt and shorts?) I’ve come up with a LOT of things that either happen or go through my head while shaving. Let’s get into it, shall we?

  1. Wondering which razor is the newest out of your many ongoing razors – does that one even work anymore?
  2. Thinking “screw it”, and taking several razors to see which one works the best once you’re in the shower
  3. Shaving cream? Hah, I’ve literally never owned any in my life. I usually end up using shower gel suds and bubbles
  4. The art of choosing a speed to shave that actually works
  5. Shaving too quickly and not taking off a single hairs
  6. Shaving too slowly and also not taking off a single hair while slowly sending you into insanity
  7. The little strip thing (still zero clue what it actually is) slowly disappearing
  8. REMEMBER TO GET BEHIND THE KNEE
  9. ANKLES ANKLES ANKLES
  10. Literally, ankles are the most problematic areas to shave, and I always end up managing to nick my skin there
  11. Damn near yoga poses trying to reach all the areas whilst keeping your balance on wet feet and slippery surfaces
  12. The ridiculous, stinging pain of the tiniest cut somewhere but you can’t seem to find it anywhere – it’s literally like finding a needle in a haystack
  13. Or the cuts that never stop bleeding???
  14. I didn’t know I had this much blood????
  15. Oh, you’re still gushing?? I’mma name you Niagara Falls!
  16. POWER THROUGH I AM A STRONG WARRIOR
  17. Only shaving the parts of your leg people will actually see 😉 😉
  18. What will actually motivate me to shave when I don’t have to wear a P.E. kit anymore??
  19. INGROWN HAIRS, I HAVE A LOT OF NASTY WORDS FOR YOU (I will refrain from using them here)
  20. When it’s been five million years since you last shaved and you look like Chewbacca’s long lost cousin
  21. And then actually getting rid of it is so difficult and takes SO LONG
  22. Putting on soft pj pants with hairless legs ❤
  23. FEEL MY LEGS GALS
  24. Feeling like a dolphin when you’re finally finished
  25. I am so streamlined I could swim faster than Phelps
  26. Lies – I definitely couldn’t I’d be like a sunken potato
  27. When you shaved reaaallllly well, and your friend also did – Rachel and I have actually stroked each other’s smooth legs before
  28. Advertisements for razors shaving the smoothest freaking legs I’ve ever seen?? uMM???
  29. Having to turn your head and strain your eyes at horribly uncomfortable angles purely so you can see your own armpits
  30. Lord knows I’m not shaving there without seeing it – I’d probably die
  31. What if I’m shaving for nothing? What if we don’t have P.E. tomorrow?
  32. One more leg to go
  33. WHOAAAHHHHH WE’RE HALF WAY THERE
  34. WHOAAAHHHHHHHH LIVING ON A PRAYER
  35. Swiping hands up and down freshly shaved legs as fast as possible, sending water flying all over the place like you’re in some sort of
  36. – honestly I don’t know what sort of anything  would involve that so I’m not even going to try
  37. The calm before the storm
  38. Aka the few hours before the razor bumps show up
  39. I AM A QUEEN
  40. Feeling like a princess walking around with your super smooth legs
  41. And then realising you missed a stripe on your shin
  42. DAMMIT
  43. Nobody will see it, right?
  44. Last but not least, this meme:

BLOLIDAYS #3 – SUMMER HAUL

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!

latop

 

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

denimtop

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

Onto Boots!

conc

high

Barry M Feature Length Mascara – £4.99

lashes

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

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?

MONTHLY LOOK-AHEAD – AUGUST 2017

Hello blogosphere! I’m back again, and it’s currently 11:09PM. Why am I writing a post at this time? I’m not sure, especially since I’m surviving off very little sleep after a huge TV marathon last night until 4:30AM…. I should be sleeping, but I’ve ended up here.

So what has August got in store for us? Probably nothing very eventful, since I’m not in school until September, but there’ll definitely be some littler things to look forward to!

Back to Blogging

It’s no secret that my blog has been lacking posts in the last few months, and I’ve been even more useless at reading and commenting on other bloggers’ posts. With school out of the way, I’ll have a lot more free time, and a lot less homework (although teachers had really been slacking in that department anyway this year, thankfully). I’m planning on getting way more posts out than usual!

Blolidays

If you were here last year, and I still haven’t managed to scare you away, first, thanks for staying, but more importantly, you might remember a series of posts I did last summer, called Blolidays. It’s a hybrid word of blog and holidays if you hadn’t already noticed, and although I don’t really go on holiday (thanks mother for the huge family), I write a post once a week themed on the holidays. It might be a summer playlist, my favourite clothes, a haul (that one’s coming for sure!) or even just a rant about the things I love in summer.

Brunch Outings

Like last year, my friends and I have planned to meet up a bunch of times in the holidays, and I’m hoping we actually do! Last year, it got to the last weekend of the holidays and we all got hit with “oh sugar we haven’t been out once” so ended up going out then. Regina wants to go to some little cafes for brunch a few times, and I’m a sucker for all things breakfast-y, especially smoothies!

Everything Everything

For those of you that haven’t already gathered, I’m an absolute hopeless romantic, despite never having been in a relationship or anywhere close to one – ever. It’s heartbreaking, I know, but I survive purely off romance movies: the Notebook being one of my all time favourites (even though it makes me ugly-cry so bad). This month – I think – Everything Everything comes out in the UK Cinemas, and I’m so so excited to watch it.

Teen Wolf Season 6B

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I was on a huge TV marathon. Now’s the time where I tell you it was Teen Wolf. I’d planned to rewatch the entire series in time for the new episode that I could watch on Monday (thank you, timezones), but by Sunday morning I was really pushing whether I’d make it in time or not. To make sure I did, I stayed up until 4:30AM. From Wednesday to Monday morning, I’d watched ninety-one episodes of Teen Wolf, which worked out to about two and a half days straight. It’s easily the biggest binge I’ve ever been on in such a short space of time, but I made it, and the new episode WAS SO EXCITING I CAN’T WAIT TO WATCH THE REST OF THE SEASON!!!

Back to School Shopping

As usual, late August comes with restocking on stationery, school uniform, shoes, and the lot. Some people find it really tedious, and a bit depressing, but since me and my friends are all dorks, it’s so exciting, and we set aside a day to go out to a bunch of stationery shops in town. There’s something so refreshing about starting a new year with a whole set of new equipment. Who knows, maybe I’ll even keep my ruler this year? I’ve never managed to keep a ruler – ever; it always seems to go missing, or snap and I end up using those triangle things in maths sets that I still don’t know what they’re used for…. If anyone knows, enlighten me!!

And that’s what’s ahead in the next month! Hopefully, we’ll have some nice weather, and be able to get some outside time! If you’re in the UK, you’ll know our summers usually last all of a three day heatwave and then we’re onto autumn. Let’s see!

See you next time 🙂

An Optimist Amongst Pessimists

Hey… I’m writing this super late, since it’s actually past midnight here in the UK.
Within my friendship group, there’s been all sorts of dramas in the last week, and I’ll definitely get another post up soon to explain it all and whatnot, but for now, it’s probably useful to know that there’s been a slight fall out between two halves of our group. 

SO, naturally, the majority of our group are pretty bummed about it. As I’ll explain in the next post, I’m not so much affected since I managed to KEEP MY HEAD OUT OF THE DRAMA (apologies, ahem.) but the rest of the girls in our group seem to have took a big hit from it. 

Bare in mind, this all began last Saturday, and escalated rapidly on Wednesday. Friday (although now it’s Saturday) rolled around and my friends are being painfully pessimistic.

Before I get into the details, I’ll mention that I’m an optimist. I’m a positive thinker, I firmly believe that everything happens with purpose, that nothing is entirely bad and that everything will turn out good in the end. 

My friends however, are quite the opposite. They seem to let one negative thing outrule the entire year of good memories we’ve had in Year 10, saying that “Life is so shit” and “I thought this year would be better”, to which I replied saying that life isn’t bad, and that they were just ignoring all the good that had happened this year.

Just because I don’t outwardly show sadness or pain in person or through dramatic paragraphs, doesn’t mean I don’t ever feel it, so what Britt replied tugged my nerves a little. She’d said that my life is all fine and happy, seemingly implying that everything to happen for me is all sunshine and rainbows. Any frequent reader of this blog will fully understand that that’s not the case. The difference is, as an overall, I try to focus on the things that make me happy. You’ll know that this year I’ve dealt with a lot, including the separation of our friendship group recently. 

“Nothing bad has happened to you this year”. To assume that someone has it perfectly, is a hundred percent unreasonable, if you ask me. So by this point, I was getting a little annoyed and ended up saying “JUST FOCUS ON THE GOOD JESUS WHERE IS YOUR OPTIMISM?”. She replied with “What good?”. 

I understand that people might have stuff going on that we don’t know about, and that it’s perfectly reasonable to feel down from time to time (as we all do), but to blatantly ignore all the times you’ve laughed until you couldn’t breathe, smiled so hard your jaw hurt and physically not been able to hold back from making a little inside joke or smirk is just unfair. Unfair on all the people that would then feel as if they aren’t good enough for you. If nothing is good, then surely that means the friendships aren’t good either?

Being a positive person, surrounded by so much negativity is getting to me a little, and I’m feeling slightly squashed so I needed to have a little rant on here. 

Thank you for listening, and if anyone is hurt by anything I’ve said, I’m sorry.

HAIRCARE 101


It’s me again, Awkwardsaurus 🙂

I’m trying to get back on top of posting as frequently as I can, so if you’re confused by more regular posting then this is why. 

(Editing note: I’ve had this post drafted for ages and I know, at this point in time REGULAR POSTING HAHA WHAT IS THAT?)

Anyways, my Sims is loading (Sims 3 if you’re interested), so I thought I’d pass the time by writing another post. 

Ever since being about seven or eight, I’ve had longer than average hair. Currently, it goes down to about two inches above my hips, so frankly, there’s a lot of it to deal with. 
In this post, I’ll be sharing some of my (extremely unprofessional and 100% personal experience/opinion-based) insight on the world of hair. 😀

Know Your Hair Type

Before you go out and try products or methods to look after your locks, it’s important to know what type of hair you actually have. It’s similar to skin types, most falling into either dry, oily or normal. If you find yourself having to wash your hair often because it gets greasy quickly, chances are you have oily hair. If you’re the opposite, and it takes a few days to build up oils, you probably have dry hair (hello, me too). If neither seem to fit, then you might have normal hair.

Buy Shampoo Designed for Your Hair Type

Don’t be wary to buy Shampoo with rather long names or claims. Mine’s the L’oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo for Very Dry, Dull, Rebellious Hair. How’s that for a title? The point is, you shouldn’t be intimidated by all the words and end up buying a simple looking shampoo that doesn’t suit your hair type. Trust me, you’ll know when you find one that does!

Turn Down the Heat

Straighteners, curling irons, hairdryers. They’re all pretty hot. Sure, you can’t exactly cut out straighteners or curlers from your life if you’re a frequent user, but hairdryers usually have a heat setting. The coldest one is impractical, since it takes about 5 years to dry all of my hair, but the middle setting is the compromise I settle for. With styling tools, make sure you protect your hair with a heat protector!

Be Gentle

I once read a saying that said to treat your hair like it’s your best silk dress. I can’t remember when I came across it, but it’s stuck in my head ever since. Don’t tug it violently when you’re brushing out tangles; don’t scrub it aggressively with a towel; and try not to have it constantly in tight styles (I know that one’s tough when you literally live in ponytails).

Sleep With Hair Down

Tying (hehe puns) in with my last point, too much straining of your hair causes the strands to point in unnatural directions, essentially stunting their growth. If you want to grow out your hair, it’s definitely a good idea to give the bobbles a break and take it down while you sleep!

Get it Cut!!!

Without getting your hair cut, you’ll develop split ends, which – for those of you that aren’t aware – are hairs that have, well, split down the centre and become two thinner ends. Cutting your hair keeps it healthy, and prevents it from splitting!

And those are some of my tips! What are some of your hair hacks?

THE UNIQUELY ME TAG

Helllooo again!

Three days in a row, I’m really on a roll!

Today’s post (and probably tomorrow’s, too) is a tag. Tags are easily one of my favourite things to write on my blog, so thank you so much to the amazing All The Jazz for nominating me for The Uniquely Me Tag. For those of you that don’t already know, this tag was created by the fantabulous Elm, to spread a little self love! It’s such a great idea and I’m super excited to get into the tag!

First of all, the rules:

1. Thank the person that nominated you for this tag and link to their blog (spread the love, basically).
2. Write as many things that are unique to you as possible: these can be things that you do, say, like or have that make you different to other people or let you stand out. It can be what defines you as a person, a little thing about you that is just simply you or something little known that you think makes you up as a person.
3. Nominate up to 10 bloggers or as many as you like; there isn’t a limit.
4. You can take this tag as seriously or non-seriously as you like; you can laugh whilst doing it or feel contemplative: this is about you, after all.
5. After you’ve written this and if you ever feel like there’s nothing to you but what other people have already said and done, look back to your post and remember that it isn’t true.

Okay, so some unique things about me:

  • My eyes are blue on the outside, and green around my pupils (although it makes it really awkward to decide what colour they actually are)
  • I have a strange love of bagels (especially with cream cheese) ❤
  • When something big happens or I hit a personal milestone, I’ll draw a little circle on the corner of my page in school, so I can look back at my books and see what I was up to
  • I like to learn the real choreography to songs so I can dance along while they’re playing
  • I rarely crush on more than one person at a time (which other people seem to?) so everything is all on one person. It can be stressful, but it’s so fun
  • I have a folder in my gallery of positive quotes to look at when I’m feeling down
  • I still sleep with a big stuffed bear in my bed (his name is Cuddles, and I’ve had him for about 11 years)
  • My dad is American (from Michigan) and my mum is British, so I’m half of both, but living in the UK
  • I have a crazy number of hoodies (mainly Superdry) in an array of colours
  • The Sims games and expansions on my shelf are all in order of release date, and my box sets for TV shows are in season order
  • I’m an avid fan of Fifth Harmony
  • At my age of 15, I’ve never once had a sleepover or gone on a school trip where I stay the night…
  • I’m obsessed with checking my horoscope
  • I love one-off Geography things on TV, like when Leonardo DiCaprio did Before the Flood! ❤

Nominations:

Regina @ Diversion3000

Jenny @ Jenny in Neverland

Jess @ Kisses From Jess

Kiya @ Flawed Silence

Sherina @ Sherina Speaks

And that’s all for this post! Thank you so much to Jazz for nominating me, and to Elm for creating such a beautiful tag!

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 🙂

BLOGMAS DAY 4 | CHRISTMAS MOVIE MARATHON

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Welcome to Blogmas Day 4!

**********************************************

7 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

**********************************************

There’s only a week to go! Almost there! Christmas is never complete without Christmas movies, so let’s get into some of my favourites!

Nativity

As overplayed as this film may be, it never fails to liven up the Christmas mood. Not to mention, the entire time I imagine Sherlock walking in to see John (Mr Maddens) dancing with a bunch of 7 year olds. 😀

Elf

Without a doubt, Elf is my all-time favourite Christmas movie, and if anything can ever overtake it… let’s just say I’d be very impressed! Will Ferrel is absolutely hilarious, and paired with Zooey Deschanel is just perfect!

The Holiday

I watched this for the first time last year, and it’s safe to say that it’s easily my second favourite Christmas movie. I’m an absolute sucker for romance, and Christmas is by far my favourite season. Put them together, and that’s a pretty good movie if you ask me! 😀

Home Alone

Classic. I don’t think there’s been a single year that my family hasn’t all sat together to watch Home Alone. Kevin is adorable, and the whole plot is so cleverly planned out. Not to mention, the wincing and cringing throughout the whole thing! 😀

Love Actually

I haven’t ever seen this before, but since I plan on watching it in the next few days, so I thought I’d let you know that it’s on my Christmas Movie List this year. I’ll update once I’ve watched it, and say what I thought via my twitter! It seems to be about romance, but that’s really all I know so far.

The Santa Clause

Being one of my dad’s favourite Christmas movies, we watch this one without fail almost every year. Charlie is so freaking cute, and the plot is so entertaining!

If you haven’t seen any of those films, I really would recommend checking them out, and if there’s any of your favourites that I missed, make sure to let me know in the comments! 😀

November 2016 Favourites

Hi,

 I’m Just Average Teen Me. We’re already a week into December, and slowly getting closer and closer to Christmas but for the next few minutes let’s look back to November. It was pretty insane, not going to lie, but there was some good stuff 😀

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Most Harry Potter fans will have seen this by now, but I’ll avoid spoilers; don’t worry! Although I would say I prefer the Harry Potter films, fbawtft (abbreviation, if you’re wondering) was super amazing, and Eddie Redmayne was a fantastic actor for Newt! Definitely recommend!

Lindt Hot Chocolate

As an avid fan of both Lindt and hot chocolate, I more than likely squealed when I found out Costa were selling Lindt hot chocolates as a part of their Christmas range of drinks. I went with Ashley after school one day (coincidentally, we were right behind Flynn for a good ten minutes which I am not complaining about at all) and although it’s just shy of £3 for a pretty small sized hot chocolate, it was beyond worth it! One way I found to describe it was: like chocolate cake mix before it’s been baked. Heart eyes all over ❤

B&M 

If you live in the UK, you might be familiar with B&M Bargains, if not, let me enlighten you. It’s essentially a shop with a lot of cheap things. It’s a lot of the things that you’d get in other shops, but for considerably cheaper in price, not to mention the insane variety of stuff there. You might remember that it’s where I did my school shopping this year! It’s also where I do the majority of any birthday and Christmas shopping. Check it out if you have any nearby!

Shawn Mendes

Ashley, being the insane Shawn Mendes fan that she is, has got us two tickets to see him on his Illuminate tour next April. Sure, I’d heard the more famous songs like ‘Stitches’ and I had ‘Treat You Better’ saved to my Spotify along with a few others like ‘Life of the Party’ but I hadn’t properly listened to the majority of his music. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by it, and have ended up knowing all of the words to them all within about a month and a half! Lights On is definitely my fave 😀

OUAT Season 6A

I’m pretty damn sad to say, but OUAT has just broken up for the mid-season break (cries river of lost souls). That doesn’t at all take away from how amazing the first half of the season was! So many new situations literally had me begging for more after every new episode, and now I have to wait until (probably) March for the next half of the season.. 😦

Teen Wolf Season 6

As you might remember from previous posts, I’m a fan of the MTV series: Teen Wolf. The Final Season started earlier this month, and while I’ll no doubt miss it, I can’t wait to see where this season is going! The new villains, the Ghost Riders, are some of the most intriguing characters they’ve had yet, and I’m just hanging onto hope that Daniel Sharman will come back as Isaac at some point! 😀

That’s most of what I’ve been enjoying this month! Let me know what you’ve been loving in the comments!

BYE! 😀
