My Life in 8 Pictures

Yay!

Another picture post.

Although I’m sure some of you guys have mixed feelings about picture posts because they can be a little bit BORING.

But today is kind of like a challenge/tag post. Basically, you go through your photos and pick 8 pictures which more or less represent your life. You can also randomly pick them (like I am) which can be more fun, but also embarrassing! You can explain one or two of the pics if you feel like you need to. But otherwise don’t even bother. Here are mine:

Yaaaayayayy.

So now I nominate all of you guys to do the same challenge!
I promise I’m not lazy I just want to see Y’all do it too 😉

Describe your life in 5 emojis down below!

Do What You Love

                    DO what you LOVE and LOVE what you DO

If you think this post is really cheesy then SOZ NOT SOZ!!

There is always enough space for positivity, motivation and just good vibes in this world so why not add some more?Anywhoo, this post is just about happiness and being proud and confident and sharing it with other people.

It’s the summer vacay so you have ages (which passes by extremely quickly) to try out new things and find out what you’re amazing at. Or just do what you love! Write your blog posts, songs, sing at the top of your lungs, dance and run around the room until you collapse. Just do what makes you happy because you’ve only got this one life to do it, and you don’t want to waste a second.

Also, be PROUD of who you are. If you love wearing a piece of clothing or a hairstyle or a makeup look which everyone hates, wear it anyway because YOU’RE in charge of yourself and what you feel. And honestly, a few years into the future they’ll feel bad for laughing because that style will be sooooo in trend and you’ll have started it!

So goodbye my lovelies xo

Do at least one thing that makes you happy today (or tomorrow if it’s evening rn) and comment down below what it was! I don’t care if it was eating a whole tub of ice cream hahah 🙂

Plans For The Summer

Can I get a “whoop whoop?”

( “whoop whoop!”)

It’s finally summmeeeerr, yeah!*cue ‘What Time Is It?” from High School Musical*Our school year was actually extra long this year which is why it ended so late; it ended today if you hadn’t realized yet. But thanks to a friend who will be going anonymous *cough* *cough* Milla *cough* my days were slightly more boring because she had to leave early.

Anyways yeah, as the title says, this post will be about my plans for the summer:

Of course, I want to Travel but there are tons of other stuff I want to do or get (shopaholic alert!). Firstly, I’ve already started making my summer playlist and pool playlist because I literally cannot live without music. I’m currently loving <<Girls Like You>> by Maroon 5, and the music video is also really great if you haven’t watched it already. I also want to get some new furniture like a wardrobe and a dressing table because my current ones aren’t too great! I would like to do a bit more baking this summer and not be so lazy as I have been last summer when I didn’t travel. I’ve already finished Friends (why? WHY) which I can’t believe because… TEN SEASONS PEOPLE! So now I’d like a new show to binge so if you have any good recommendations then please tell me in the comments ♥️

Finally, I really want to work on and improve my photography skills because honestly, they can be much better.

Where are you travelling to this summer?

* BTW this new style of editing my picture is inspired by <<Emily Clare Beauty>>. I need to give her credit cause I love, love, LOVE it!

A Day in My Mind

Rose || Day in my mind

Now THAT’s a sentence (or title) I never thought I’d write.

But that is what this blog post about! My thought process on an average school day.

I thought it would be fun to do a post with questions and thoughts I think of on a daily basis. I got inspiration for this from <<Emily Clare Beauty >>who did ‘Inside The Mind Of A Blogger’, and I really liked that post but didn’t want to do the exact same thing soo… here we are!

“Wait no, it can’t be time to wake up. Oh thank god, it’s just three.”

“Did I get everything? I think I forgot something.”

“Oh no, oh no, did the bell go yet? DID THE BELL GO YET?!”

“Great I got the wrong books.”

“Nooooooo it’s Arabic”

“Finally, it’s time to go home!”

“Let’s find food and watch Friends!!!”

“Oops I have homework, let me just finish thaaaat.” *back to bingeing*

“Ugh, I’m hungry again.”

“Have any bloggers written anything new? Ooh, good inspiration.”

“Crap, I need to write another blog post now.”

”Can I sleep now? YEEEEEah; here I come blanket!”

This is literally my life described in *goes back to count* 12 questions and statements. And I think there could be loads of variations on these kinds of blog posts!

Can you relate to any of these? If you write a post like this please comment below because I’d really love to check it out!

May Wrap-Up

A bit late?

Definitely.

Sorry about me, I just scheduled this post and then didn’t wonder for a while why my “post” wasn’t getting any likes. Yep.

SO………….. May was definitely a very busy month; mostly because of my exams but hey, who’s counting?

This year was the first year that I had ‘End Of Year Exams’ and it was extremely stressful. But now I’m really excited for my results, as I’m sure you guys are too!

Also this month I had that sleepover and really fun mini photoshoot which pictures I have previously shared with you guys. I love love LOVE them so much.

*Hreem thinks for 10 mins and then realizes how boring this month has been*

Now we can just have a nice, friendly chat about life. I did watch two great movies last month though; Overboard and The Kissing Booth (I’m sure all you girls with Netflix would have watched this!), The Kissing Booth was such an amazing movie, and you should go watch it right now if you haven’t already.

Next thing……… I cut my hair!

I didn’t cut it in May but I just had to add that in because I’ve been growing my hair and keeping it long for aaaaaaaages and I finally had the guts to cut off a bit. That and the cruel summer heat of Dubai, and summer is only getting started ☀️ How’s that working out for you guys by the way?

Anywhoo, check out the roundup in pictures because I’m adding some 🙂

Exams Over! And How to Survive Them When They Return

IMG_3608

You heard it, no more exams! woohoo!

Obviously I have them next year, but for now, I’m done, finito! It’s like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders nd

So here are a few tips that really helped me:

Have a Schedule or Timetable

This helped me a lot and is great if you have many subjects that you can’t keep track of and also saves you time so you don’t have to worry about what to study next! I also gave myself little stars so by the end my calendar was covered by a constellation of stars ⭑

Reward Yourself

Whenever I finished a week’s worth of studying I treated myself to a little Pinkberry (yum!) or ice cream or something delicious just so there was something to look forward to.

Get Comfortable

You won’t learn anything if you don’t feel comfortable so go on, grab some cushions and scented candles; just make sure you don’t fall asleep…

Music

There are two options for this: listen to soft studying music (which distracts me) or you can do what I did and go on Ambient-Mixer and listen to some sounds like ‘Gryffindor common room’ (which I absolutely adore) and ‘rainy day’ and stuff just so it’s not too quiet 🙂

and finally…

DON’T STRESS

My science teacher is all about the meditation and peace so she always said “don’t get too stressed over work. If you can’t bear it, take a break, go to the park and take your dog for a walk. Stress just leads to more stress which is just unbearable.”

What studying tips helped you lately?

Best Friend Battle |Best Friends Do my Jennyfer Shop

Hey everyone!

So… I know we’ve all seen those posts on youtube like “Best friend/boyfriend does my ASOS shop!” But you know, I ain’t got a youtube channel. Although, I do have a blog, which is why I am doing it here.

BUT I am also trying to save money so I decided to let my friends do window shopping online.

Yes. friendS. Two of my best friends are going to find me two outfits; one which is casual and one which is kinda dressy, then at the end I pick whose casual outfit is better, and whose dress outfit is better. Sooo yeah!

Mia’s Outfit No. 1

The first thing Mia picked out for my top was this <<Cream Croptop With Zip Detail>> which I think is pretty cute. But I don’t really think it would suit me too well…

For the bottom, she chose these << Black Super High-Waisted Jeggings >>. These I do like because, well I like high waisted now. I also really love those shoes though!!

For the shoes, Mia liked these << Floral Print Canvas Shoes >> which I also really like and I now desperately wish I had ♥︎

Top for Miajeans | Miatrainers-mia.jpg

And finally, for accessories, Mia found this << Black Mixed Fabric Backpack >> and          << Black Skinny Belt >>. TBH I’m not too fond of the bag because, as I said, zips aren’t really my thing, but it is cute. And also the belt, I don’t ever wear belts but this one isn’t bad so *insert shrugging emoji*.

Noelle’s Outfit No. 1

The top that Noelle picked out for me is this really cute << Light Pink and White Crush Camisole >> which I absolutely adore. I think if I went shopping in the store by myself I would pick this up!

And this pair of << Light Blue Distressed Mom Jeans >> which I think are pretty nice. With the jeans, she gave the instructions “cuff these, roll them twice.”

For the shoes, she picked this pair of << Black Slippers With Faux Fur >> which I’m pretty sure ( I hope ) were meant to be a joke. Along with the link she said “they’re kinda ugly but you will pull them off.” Wow Noelle, just wow.

Finally, for the accessories, a << Small Black Mixed Fabric Backpack >> and << Black Belt With Oval Buckle >> which are exactly like Mia’s so… not too bad!

Mia’s Outfit No. 2

Because the second outfit had to be a bit dressy, Mia chose a << Black Floral Wrap Dress >> which is actually very pretty. Except I think that the V cut of the dress isn’t really my thing. Other than that I really love this dress.

And for all the accessories she decided to use all the same ones as the first outfit, including the belt.

Noelle’s Outfit No. 2

Noelle’s << Black Tube Dress With Strap Detail >> which is really nice but I think that it’s a little slim fitting which I don’t really like. But the design at the top of the dress is something I really like.

To go with the dress she found a << Long Light Blue Denim Jacket >> which I think looks really chic and makes me want to wear the dress now! Oh, I reallllyyy want the jacket now.

To go with the dress, here are some pretty << tights >> which obviously I like.

and finally for accessories and shoes:

<< Black Pointed Heels >> which I don’t really like because the heels are too pointed.

Along with the << Small Black and White Zipped Cross Body Bag >> which is cute because it fits stuff but is tiny.

For the finaaaalllllssss….

Noelle wins for outfit no. 1

and Mia for no. 2 because of the reasons I had stated.

What is your favourite clothing store?

The Weekend

HOi, everyone!

How you doing?

I know, I know, I haven’t posted in ages. But I had already warned you that my exams are coming up at the end of the month and most of the times I won’t have time to write a blog post 😦

Anyways, this weekend my friends Mia and Yana came over for a sleepover and we had tons of fun so this is just a little summary!

 

So, the first thing we did after they came home and ate lunch, is going on Pinterest and finding some cool photo ideas for a mini photoshoot kind of thing. There were some awesome ideas like rainbow, glitter and sparklers and stuff.                                                      After that, we took some gorgeous pictures with some flowers and neon lights and I must say it was really was amusing!

Soon we watched some Friends while transferring and editing the photos we took, which btw, were AMAZING. For dinner, we ate some mouth-watering, homemade pizza and peri-peri fries and then watched ‘Flushed Away’. Not  my choice of movie 😂

And then my friends and I were chatting and playing games until about 3 am when we finally decided it was time to sleep. It was really fun! Here are some of the pictures we took (these are only mine):

Do you have exams for the end of the year?

Blogging Pet Peeves

Goooood afternoon everyone!

How’s life?

I know I’m posting a lot less now but I’m starting to get a lot of homework and revision for the upcoming exams. So, unfortunately, you won’t get very frequent content for a while 😦

Anyway, here are a few things I dislike that some people do on their blog posts. I am in NO WAY trying to say that my blog is completely flawless, I am just expressing my opinion. If you might get offended then I recommend that you do not read this post.

Formatting on a Phone

Some people write or design their posts on a phone, which might be handy but not the best idea in terms of presentation. Maybe not everyone owns their own laptop or computer but they definitely have access to one, so it’s better to use a laptop/computer if you don’t want the presentation of your post to be all over the place.

Grammatical or Spelling Mistakes

This might be a teensy bit hypocritical, but whenever I’m reading a post and I find a random spelling or grammar mistake and I cringe sooooo bad. I didn’t want that for my posts so I got Grammarly, which I definitely recommend to people who often type a word wrong or structure a sentence wrong.

Bad Quality Pictures

I don’t know about anyone else but the picture quality is one of the main things I look at before following a blog because sometimes one picture can really represent your efforts. It’s really annoying when the picture is kind of grainy, not in focus, taken in the dark, taken with very bright light etc. etc. I know that my pictures aren’t that amazing either but I know I’m much better than when I started off.

Not Very Interactive

I love it when bloggers start off their blog posts like “Hey!” or “What’s Up!” or things like that at the beginning of the post and they go ” how’s your day going?” and other questions because it’s like they actually care. And then they put questions at the bottom and reply to every single comment. It annoys me when people don’t actually take the time to talk directly to their reader rather than an audience of people. I understand if they don’t have time to respond to all of the comments, but they could at least reply to a few.

That’s alllll!

Do you do any of these things? Be honest!
