OFF TO FRANCE

Saturday 23rd July 6.36AM

Dear diary,

I am so sorry that there was no post on Monday, I honestly forgot and my the time I realised, it was too late and the post would’ve been awful. I have some good post plans ready for this summer that I’m so excited to share with you guys.

So it’s currently 6.38AM and I’m awake in bed typing this post because in a few hours I will be making my way to a place called Normandy in France. That means one thing and one thing only… The Waughs are off on their holidays. We will be gone for 13 days (I think?) but expect some posts even if they are just short ones because I’ll need am excuse to go to the wifi hotspots ( mainly because I WILL need a break from my fam at some points hahahah).

From what I’ve read, Normandy is quite a rural but beautiful place with lots of history, museums and stunning architecture so you better be excited for some pictures and blog posts about what I get up to.

Again, sorry about this weeks post but I promise I will catch up on posts and most weeks when I return from France there will be more than one post a week.

I’m almost at 300 followers as well… That’s crazy so thank you so much, it means a lot when people read these.

Lastly, feel free to comment as always or message me on any of my social media, don’t be shy. If any of you have been to Normandy or anywhere near it please leave a comment with suggestions of where to go, that would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading, till next time,

Anna Saccone necklace review

11th July 2016

Dear diary,

As some of you guys may know, it was my birthday just under a month ago. One thing that I asked for from my generous parents was a necklace with my star sign on it (Gemini) from Anna SacconeJoly’s range with Stilnest.com. The necklace arrived a week late which sucked but we left it a little late to order it, it takes around 3-4 weeks to arrive as it needs to be shipped etc. My necklace is a Gemini gold silver plated medium length necklace…. and I loveeee it! It looks amazing with every outfit and I’ve had many compliments about it. The products is slightly pricey but it is amazing quality and I can tell it will last many years, so worth the money if you’re willing to take the splurge.

There are silver and rose gold options also available but I decided to go for the gold as this is what Anna wears and it looks so lovely and flattering on her. The package was  very lovely, with a little not from the company telling the context of the range and giving a touching picture of Anna and her father, which I have kept (I hope that’s not creepy haha).

So I’ve had the necklace for a few weeks now and I’ve worn it almost every day! It pulls every outfit together and makes it appear that I’ve put a lot more effort in to choosing my outfit then I actually have.

Overall, it is a fantastic purchase, a durable and lovely piece of jewelry that I would recommend having in your collection. Well done Anna, I for one love your collection and admire you as a person. (if you happen to be reading this).

Here is the link to Anna’s collection with Stilnest (including bracelets and necklaces): https://stilnest.com/en/annasaccone/

A little note… I’ve broken up for summer holidays now. Job hunting, holiday packing and trying to start youtube! Exciting times but that does mean I’m not sure how often posts will be. There will be AT LEAST one per week. Mondays will not stop, I think I can do more, maybe 2 per week. I’m just not sure when that second day will be, it may be different each week. Please do talk to me on any of my social media, tell me you came from my blog! Need some pals hahaha. Ps. I’m filming my first YT vid tomorrow YEY!!!

Till next time,

A little University talk

Monday 4th July,

Dear Diary,

Let’s start with an update. First things first (I’m the realest), I finish my first year of sixth form on Thursday. That’s 3 DAYS WHATT!!! I honestly still feel 12 years old no way do I only have one year of education left. Its been a crazy year and in 2 weeks time I will be writing a post on everything I have learnt from my first year there, so look forward to that. Secondly, I have over 100 followers WOW thank you. That’s amazing I couldn’t have asked for more. Thirdly, and for me the most exciting, I WILL be starting my own YouTube channel! I will be uploading on a Saturday at around 7pm from the 16th July so head on over and subscribe please, I will sub back of course. I have literally wanted to do this since 2012 and so any support is greatly appreciated. Last;y, this summer is a summer of change. Starting from this Friday, I am going to live a much more healthy lifestyle and hopefully shift some unwanted weight. I will be recording my progress through this blog and hope to be a transformed person by the end of the summer. Now onto the actual post…

So I am now at the end of my AS to A2 transition weeks (the time between the first year and summer where we are introduced to the second year of sixth form- which is intense). Throughout these 4 weeks I have been bombarded with coursework and content for next years exams and its driving me crazy. I have had to complete an application to do an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) which just requires more work and I’ve already had to write my first draft of my personal statement for university (OMG). I have applied for UCAS and shortlisted my universites and courses that I’m applying for, that’s terrifying!

Writing my personal statement was tough because you have to think about yourself and what makes you so great. All fun and games until you realise you’re a boring nerd who’s talents include: Finishing an entire season on netflix in one sitting, eating a whole tub of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream in one sitting and being able to cry on demand. Actually not on demand, or by choice, just all the time. hahhahah i’m kidding (a little).

I actually ended up asking for help with my first paragraph, seen as the furthest I could get was writing my name. Once I was past the dreaded first paragraph I was on a roll. The maximum was 4,000 characters and mine is near 5,000. Good luck future me on cutting that down. I had too much to write about ans my fingers actually ached from typing so fast. As the woman in the UCAS video says “no one knows you better than you do”, so write everything you can think of, even if you thing you’re the most boring person in the planet, some one else won’t. There’s always someone who finds you captivating even if its only your mam, so ask around and find out why you’re interesting! You’ll probably get some amazing answers.

If you are going into your last year of sixth form and are in the same position as me, leave a comment or message me on any of my social media that I’ll leave at the bottom of the page. Also if you are currently going to or at university (especially Leeds, Sunderland, York St.John or Newcastle) let me know what its like because maybe it’ll calm me down a bit. I’d love to hear whats happening at your schools or universities/colleges wherever you are in the world so don’t be a stranger!

Sorry for the crappy post this week but I’m suffering with hayfever (a petty illness i know but I get it really bad okay!) so I’m not feeling great and I’ve typed this whole post with a “I’M GONNA SNEEZE” face which I’m sure you all know of and my head hurts so goodnight and till next time,
