New Beginnings!

Everyone in their life go through new things all the time, whether it's big or small it happens every day. It can always be very overwhelming and this is why I haven't been posting as much recently. SO much has been going on, new things that I have either loved or not, and it isn't just happening to me.

Recently, I moved house. This was a big thing because I was moving out of the town that I have lived my whole life. It is very different moving into a new house. Boxing up and unboxing everything you own, learning how to use the gas and electric, learning to use all the new things involved in this one house that your going to live in for years. Some people do not move house there whole lives until they grow into adults which is a even bigger step because it's all new. I defiantly am scared of what the future will hold and having all those grown up responsibilities that will come with growing older in only age, just a number effecting your whole life. Voting, paying debts, moving, getting bigger jobs, having families. So much to do in just one life. Moving house made me have a different view on many things including money. In costs so much so now I have started applying for more jobs to let my parents focus mainly on the house, bills etc. rather then spending unnecessary money on me but it is all new which is scary but exciting!

Also new things that have been happening is that I started college. For 5 years, I have been going to high school, having the same way lessons go, having the same people in my year, same friends, falling out with the same people over and over again. I rarely met new people until the two sides (Until year 9 the year was split into two sides). I then met new people in my classes but it still all felt the same. Now college has started, the year, friendships have gone to different 6 forms, colleges. It's all changed. Especially the way college learns. Doing a BTEC, they're no exams, only assignments and coursework. It is harder work but if your doing a subject you love then it is all worth while. Also meeting new people. I have made some new amazing friends and I still talk to everyone from my old high school that are not there or are not on the same course anymore. It's a big step in your life especially if you are shy and do not have all the confidence to do these things but there's nothing to be scared of. It may be different at first but as you get used to it, it becomes a amazing experience and can be very enjoyable.

As well as that, this year I went on a cruise for the first time. This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had and I am defiantly going on one again. It was the first huge holiday I have been on as it was going to 3 countries and there was so much to consider when going on a cruise. Money exchanges, if you need a visa, where to go, times to go and how much it will actually cost over all. I learnt a lot from this holiday which will lead into my future.

Finally, job interviews. Everyone has to go to a job interview at least once in there life. Whether it's a full time. part time, summer job. It can always be daunting and I was very nervous at my first one but one you get in there, you will be confident and be able to answer anything they asked. As long as you have told the truth on your application form/CV, it will go a breeze. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. It is new to everyone and if it is a group interview, it might be new to them as well. They may only last about 10-20 minutes so it isn't that big and it can lead into something bigger.

New beginnings happen every day, every year for everyone. There is nothing to be scared of. It's life and it can lead to something things. All you have to do is take the risk and you will see in the end that it will all turn out either as you planned or something even better.

Growing lashes faster!!

Every time I wake up in the morning after either taking my mascara off or not, my lashes always seem to look damaged or thinner then they were before. Since I have been using this product every night, they have become thicker, better condition and less prone to break.

This is Palmer's cocoa butter formula with Vitamin E.

  • Provides 24 hour moisture 
  • Proven to soften dry skin
  • Suitable for eczema prone skin
  • smoothes marks and scars
  • + more
I absolutely love this product and it wasn't that expensive either, with it lasting a very long time, I have hardly used any of it but I have had it for weeks. Also it smells amazing! I also use this product for my ache which it does work wonders because it has cocoa butter in which is a natural extract from the cocoa bean which softens skin and smoothes away dark blemishes.

I suggest if you want better quality lashes or even brows and a quick way to help with ache I suggest you buy this!!

Hey guys.
I have posted in a while and this is just a lets say, little catch up. This week a been a bit hectic, I have had college which is 3 days a week, a job interview and also moved house. Obviously moving house is crazy especially with college on the top. As well, I only got internet today (almost used all the 3G whoops! Only got it on the 10th) so once I get everything sorted I will try and post more often but at the moment it is hard so bare with me xx

Procrastinating is one of the things I do most whether I need to do something important or not. (And I don't think it is just me). Procrastinating is always seen as 'wasting time' but I think that you can do a lot of useful things. I have got a list of things to do during it rather then going on your computer instead of doing homework or in my case, packing to move house. 

  • Looking at photos of dogs dressed as humans
  • Watching netflix
  • Writing a list
  • Cleaning your room
  • Getting up to date with emails
  • Painting your nails
  • Start a hobby
  • Look at old pictures of family or holidays
  • Practice doing your make up
  • Organise your clothes in your wardrobe
  • Do yoga
  • Water plants (in my case cacti)
  • Pamper yourself
  • Read a book
  • Start a blog/if you have a blog, brainstorm ideas
  • Look at clothes on the internet 
  • Make a music playlist 

Some of these are useful but some are not but I hope this list was good in anyway.

What are the ways you procrastinate??

Chanel Overload!

Perfume ft cuddles the cactus 
Hey guys, so in July for my birthday I got the Chanel Chance Eau De Toilette perfume which I literally use everyday but it has lasted a long time for me. It is a bit on the expensive side costing around £40 - £50 and it is the smaller bottle. I do not buy perfumes until the other one has run out so I do not mind spending that around every few months on perfume. It also smells amazing! so I defiantly think you should go buy it if you have the money or are looking for a new perfume. It is now my favourite one I have ever brought and I will be re-buying it when it runs out.

Q&A with Daizy!

So today I have a collab post with Daizy from BrightDreamerz and we have decided to do a Q&A with 5 questions about blogging and 5 random questions about us.

BrightDreamerz is a blog run by two girls named Daizy and Zya (not their real names). They have got a range of posts uploaded like baking, photography, travel, reviews and each has their own separate posts which they have done on their own and not together. Also the posts are have very interesting topics which I love. They always post something that will make you happy, inspiring and something to put a smile on your face.


Why is that the name of your blog?
Zya and I both made up a lot of names and in the end we combined two of her ideas and chose one of my ideas then did Ip Dip Doo to choose! Haha

Why did you start blogging?
I personally started blogging because i wanted to make people happy and if they were having a tough day they can come to our blog, read a post then feel instantly better.

Was there anyone that influenced you?
Zoella, Niomi Smart and Tanya Burr really influenced me to start blogging as i really enjoyed what they were writing and i thought it was really cool!

Any upcoming posts your thinking of?
I have a lot of new posts coming soon like reviews and something to do with Disney ;)

How do you come up with new posts?
New post ideas just come to me randomly! They happen so often i need to carry a notebook with me so i can write them all down

Favourite tv shows?
Recently i've just finished season 6 of PLL so i'm hooked to that also Once Upon A Time and finally the Bake Off cause who doesn't love cake?!

Any secret talents?
I'm quite good at writing and also photography my family say i have a good eye and apparently i'm a natural! (I don't know if they count as talents but they're the ones that popped into my head!)

Favourite animal?
I love pandas i think they're adorable!

Can you speak any other languages?
Sadly not fluently but i do know a bit of Spanish, French and Filipino but only bits and pieces

Do you have any hobbies?
I really enjoy karate which people are a bit shocked by when i say i do that as i don't come across as someone who would enjoy such a tough sport
