Southwold & walks

Hey again lovelies,

During the time I've been away, I was having a wonderful holiday in Southwold with my mum, brother, sister; aunt and cousin. It was all amazing and it's a very beautiful place but I'm glad to be home now.

Since I don't think a full description of the holiday will be particularly interesting to you guys, I shall
summarise it for you instead- using this poorly edited, though thoroughly entertaining collage:

in the corner you can see [left to right] my cousin- Katy, myself, and my sister- Mabel all looking smokin'

All in all, it was amazing, and yeah you guys should visit there at some point, if you can. Also-- if you do go there you HAVE to visit the 'under the pier show' which is located on the pier and is full of one of a kind "slot machines" (?) and is hillarious. You can find their website here.

Other than that I haven't done all too much. Earlier today I went for a walk (well actually I had to get home somehow, but I seem like a better person if I imply I did it volentarily). I decided to try to appreciate where I live a little more; you know- if you live in an area for a long time you get so used to it you don't notice things about what's around you anymore. So I decided to try and do the whole 'be a tourist in your own town' thing that numerous lifestyle magazines etc. have been praising (? I guess). In a marginally less bad collage- here is the result:


Sometimes I forget about how stunning that part of the walk is, and from these photos it looks pretty impressive. So I think that that experiment was successful. Of course- as much as I trust you guys- I don't want to tell you where I live, but these photos were taken were taken between the Eastleigh and Winchester section of the river Itchen. The walks along the Itchen are all pretty impressive, and the water is beautiful- you can even swim in some sections- which is heavenly in the summer.

And there's the song of the post ^^. JJAMZ are so under appreciated and we need to change that.

See ya,

The happy list

Hey again my beautiful friends,

Sorry for leaving you with no update for a month or so- I have my year 8 exams after the easter holidays in a couple of weeks so have been doing lots of procrastinating revising. Also, I have to choose my GSCE options pretty soon which has been rather stressful... generally life has just been too much and it's annoying me.

Therefore, due to the afformentioned build up of stress, along with gaining inspiration from some super masterposts on tumblr- I now present:
The definative list of dealing with life generally (aka I like finding cute things and am using this as an excuse to force them upon you). (Though I hope this helps if you're feeling less than great).

- if you're bored 
- find some cool books to read
- nothing can be sad if you have strong eyeliner game trust me
- a brownie in a mug recipe that's in my favourites tab for emergencies
- a website where you can watch anime for free  
- a program that blocks websites for certain amounts of time so you can clear your mind
- coffee shop soundtrack (no, actually)
- find new funky jamz
- make a flower crown so you can be tumblr
- another person's happiness guide
- poke some cats
- nutella hot chocolate :3
- get a hug
- pretty words 
- emo games because you're probably an angsty teen 
- calming manatees 
- livestream of the ocean
- play the guitar in 10 hours and be a punk rock god/ goddess/ whateveress
- a playlist of songs to sing along to too loudly
- things to draw
- more things to draw
- simple happiness 
- how to love yourself (because you should, you're great)
- compliments 

There you go, sorry it's not that long- but I wanted to find things that I thought were genuinly awesome and had time to check out other than random, impersonal links.

Again, I really hope this could help cheer you up or just make your day slightly better, though if you ever feel bad you're completely able to email me and I'll try my best to make you smile. Seriously, I love all of you guys who take the effort to read my mainly off-topic, ramble-y writing and genuinly hope you're happy.

Ugh, I'm so cheesy I know.

I really love you guys, and I'm sorry about being an unreliable poop (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
