Things My Friends Do That I Like :)

Hello everybodyyyy

How are you doinggg? Hope you had a Happy Holi if you celebrate (I did celebrate, it was so much fun. Except my scalp is still pink but oh well)

Ages ago one of my friends did this cute thing where she wrote down ‘things her friends do that she likes’ and I thought it was very sweet so here is me doing it on my blog for a few of my best friends.

Noelle

  • calls people by cute nicknames (e.g. lovie)
  • what a feeling by one direction is literally our song
  • can talk to her about anything and she gives great advice
  • her taste in music is so versatile
  • always makes me laugh even over text

Netra

  • loves analysing and really understanding people
  • super observant, she notices like the tiniest things
  • practically adopted this cat that keeps visiting her house
  • eats anything and everything (also smarties that have fallen on the floor)
  • does whatever she wants/ makes her happy

Simran

  • sends us a picture every time she gets her nails done
  • always giving hugs and playing with your hair
  • does her eyeliner so nicely
  • has a necklace she made with the name of her favourite book character (idk where it’s gone but she wore it for a long time)
  • is always so herself

Misha

  • gets so excited whenever she sees a dog and shows pictures of her dog at every opportunity
  • her laugh is a very cute giggle
  • always calls me hreemy
  • gives the best motivational speeches

  • if she ever puts on nail polish it ends up taking an hour and then she takes it off and tells me about it afterwards
  • makes the most unique acronyms while we study for business and biology
  • acts and looks like the main character in school
  • her spontaneity and ability to do anything at any time

Varshitaa

  • we attempt to have full conversations in French for no reason
  • once wrote me a 10-point list of reasons why she is β€œa material gworl”

Aaand that’s the post.

I hope you liked it! Took SO much time not gonna lie it’s hard to come up with stuff on the spot but I like the end result lol.

Comment stuff about your friends, family or even yourself (self love guys) that you like or just chat because I always love your comments 😊 Ooh which one of my friends do you think you relate to most or find the most interesting??

Song recommendation of the post: ICU by Phoebe Bridgers is my FAVOURITE song of hers and maybe one of my favourite songs of all time, it’s just that good. I love love love the feeling of the song and the production and the way it builds up then calms down then builds up then calms down then explodes with that amazing guitar and whatever amazing chord she decided to add into the song 😫 Also the lyrics. I mean “if you’re a work of art I’m standing too close I can see the brushstrokes”??? Insanity!!! In conclusion, listen to the song because I’m IN LOVE with it.

Love, Hreemy xx

Let’s Talk About Fangirls

Hello guysss

how have you been??

I’ve just been super busy and tired which is annoying.
Last we had our Personal Project exhibition in school and it was pretty fun because my board was next to most of my friends so we were just chatting and laughing most of the time but it was also extremely exhausting so there’s that.

Anyways, quickly moving on to the topic of today’s post because it’s something I’ve been noticing a lot recently:

✨fangirls✨

If you’re following my blog and are interested in the stuff I post, I’d say you are most likely also a girl, probably a teenager, and probably a fan of something or someone because I know I am. And if you’ve ever expressed this admiration you have in front of other people you’ve most likely been made fun of for it at least a little bit or been called a “fangirl” in a derogatory way.

For some reason, society loves to hate on girls or women who express their love for…anything really. If a girl goes out of their way to do something for a person, band, book or whatever that they love, or if they express any emotions towards this thing, they are immediately dismissed as obsessive. I mean, I remember One Direction fans being hardcore bullied way back when just for liking a group of five teenage-ish boys? Oh and when people got upset about Zayn leaving or the guys taking a break, the entire internet labelled them as overdramatic and moved on. That doesn’t sit right with me because majority of the people that had something to say were full grown adults like dude let children live and enjoy what they want please and thank you 😐.

What makes all of this even funnier and more interesting is the fact that sports fans get away with the same behaviour – if not much worse – without any criticism. Sports has generally been seen as a more “masculine” thing, especially before (obviously I don’t immediately associate sports with guys, I just mean in terms of history and the fact that all sports used to be male-dominated) and that suddenly seems to make things okay. Like 15-year-old girls who cry at their favourite artists’ concerts because they’re just overwhelmed with emotion (which I’d say is very sweet) and do no harm to anybody are “hysterical” and “crazy” but screaming and swearing at a sports event just shows that you are “dedicated” and “passionate”. Make it make sense.

There are adult men out there throwing a whole tantrum, vandalising property and literally harming people because their sports team lost and the other team was obviously cheating it was so rigged!!!!!!! but people point fingers at teenagers getting excited about seeing BTS live. Cute.

So yep, those are my thoughts on this topic and I had so much more to say but we can save that for another post.

Let me know your thoughts on what I said. Do you agree? Do you disagree?? I love to read your comments so please leave one 😊

See you next timeeee

Song recommendation of the post: Feels Like by Gracie Abrams came out a few months ago I think and at first I just thought it was like an okay song but I started listening to it more and now I love ittt. I feel like the melody is so nice and her voice is so pretty. I’ve listened to it more than any other song this year so check it out and let me know what you think!!

Love,

Hreemy xx

Goodbye 2021 ✨

Hellooo

Happy new year!!!

Maybe 18 days too late but I have a valid reason and that is that I had my mock exams immediately after winter break so I had to just study for a while. I mean I could have written about price elasticity or the process of aerobic respiration or something but I doubt you guys would be interested so … I didn’t.

Anyways, the point is, it’s 2022 now! 2021 was definitely a very interesting year which means it kind of sucked but also had some great moments here and there; a huge combination of things. So this post a very short one where I talk about some highlights and maybe some things I learnt in 2021?

  • Improved a ton in my singing and guitar playing because I was pretty much always at home for the first 8 months
  • Journaled a lot more which I always forget to do (finished 1 and a half notebooks for the first time wow)
  • Came first place in my school’s talent show! The show actually happened in 2020 but I only found out I won in 2021 so it counts.
  • Grew my blog a lot more (hit 200 followerssss) and finally got around to and figured out how to change the way my blog looks. I love the redesign a million times more than the old theme.
  • Hung out with my cousin a ton before she left for uni πŸ₯²
  • After finally returning to school in person I realised that doing school online for a full year was terrible and I was not enjoying it as much as I thought I was (seriously why did I think I was vibing at home)
  • Started learning to play the electric guitar which is SO COOL! Also got my own electric which looks and sounds amazing I’m still obsessing over it
  • It rained a ton on new year’s eve and I had been waiting all year for that
  • Started becoming more confident
  • And lastly, one of the best parts of 2021 was making a new friend group :))))) Only one of them is actually a new friend (hi Misha if you’re reading this, which you should be) and the others I’ve known for quite a while actually but yes the combination of people is new and they’re very fun. so yep, definitely a highlight.

aand that’s everything

I mean there’s probably more but nothing else is coming to mind at the moment so I think I can leave it here.

how was your 2021? what were some of the highlights for you? as always, talk to me about those questions or literally anything else in the comments, I love to chat.

Song rec. of the post: Babe by Taylor Swift. THIS SONG has been on repeat since it came out, it is so catchy. Even my mom loves it which is slightly irrelevant but I think it’s necessary to mention. Oh and don’t even get me started on the bridge of the song 😫. Point is, listen to it and let me know what you think.

Love, Hreem xx

“You never know what someone might be going through”…so?

“You never know what someone is going through. Always be kind.”

I’m sure we’ve all heard some variation of that quote, right?

Like I know growing up I’ve heard and read many people say stuff like “ohh be a kind person. don’t bully anyone because they might already be fighting their own battle”.

And obviously it’s a great sentiment because it’s great to be a considerate person and to be kind to someone because they might have other things in their lives that are not as kind.

But honestly, who cares if someone is going through something? Why should that matter?

How about we just be nice because … it’s nice to make people feel nice?? Literally what’s the point in being mean. It makes no sense. Maybe the person is living the life and vibing and super happy and all that jazz without a single worry in their life, or maybe they hate everything. Either way lets just be kinder people πŸ’žπŸ’ž.

SO yep a random topic that I wanted to rant about because why not.

In honour of this uncalled for post, let’s all do something kind today. Maybe compliment someone, maybe give them a hug, maybe do something nice for them, maybe spend time with someone you don’t usually make time for or maybe give someone a random little gift (me being lazy and listing the five love languages). Or just make them laugh, whatever you want. Just be kind besties because kindness is nice πŸ˜‰ (that includes being kind to yourself, remember that)

Give me a life update in the comments!! I don’t care if we’ve never talked before, tell me the best thing that happened to you lately. How’s school/ college? Did my title trick you for a sec? How is your friend situation going at the moment? What is something you’re looking forward to? What act of kindness are you planning to do?? Tell me pleaaaase I’m bored.

Song rec. of the post: in your wiiiildest dreeeeams ahaahahhhhhhhh β˜οΈβœ¨πŸ‘ΌπŸΌ 1989 era is on it’s way guyss. Idk if we’re crying for Red or dancing for 1989 so maybe a combination?

All the loveeee, Hreem xxxx

my guide to having (or faking) confidence

hey everyone!!

I hope you’re all doing amazing on this fine Sunday evening

I was initially going to do a post on my favourite lyrics ever but I realised that would take quite a while for me to write and I really wanted to post today so I’m saving that for another day (just so that I can pour my entire heart and soul into it, you know?).

So instead of that, here is my guide on having/ faking confidence.

Anybody who knows me in person knows that confident is NOT one of the first words they would use to describe me. In fact, it probably wouldn’t even be on the list because I lost any shreds of confidence I may have had before during the pandemic. HOWEVER, I have been feeling a bit more confident lately for some reason so this is me talking about things that make me feel confident or fake confidence (I mean fake it till you make it right? right. because law of attraction and you attract what you think about and all that jazz).

Firstly, I think body language is super important. Certain things might make you seem insecure or nervous, even when you’re not. Try not to cross your arms or slouch. Instead, pretend you’re some kind of royalty and everyone already loves you so all you have to do is look cool for them. It’s random but quite helpful.

Secondly, eye contact. I KNOW. I know. Eye contact can sometimes be one of the most painful things to exist but if you can try to maintain it, you’re going to look like you’re one of the most amazing beings on Earth and aware of it. I’m not saying look the other person dead in the eye for your whole 10 minute conversation (it definitely won’t last that long if that’s what you’re doing) but you can try to keep eye contact for at least 7-10 seconds and then look around for a bit and then look back for a bit again. Just make sure it’s not like two seconds and very quickly looking away as that makes you seem scared.

(now for the tips on actually being confident, not just looking)

Then we have affirmations. Saying affirmations like “I am extremely confident” or “I am always fearless” will over time actually make you confident and fearless because you’re telling your mind that is what you are and you just assume that identity (once again, law of attraction. search it up). I try to say affirmations related to confidence (such as this list) every morning and perhaps that has helped? I think it has soooo try it out.

The next tip is one that you might hate me for but I had to say it because it’s the truth. Do things that you are scared to do, or things you don’t think you are good enough for. Because you can literally do anything. I’m telling you. It is what it is so believe it or don’t believe it. When you do something you’re not very sure about doing you’ll realise that it’s not too bad after all and you will get practice doing unfamiliar things until eventually they become familiar. Even something as simple as answering a question in class is a great place to start off.
I actually did that recently. In music class in school we learn and play songs as a class and obviously for that we would need someone to sing. All of last year and the first week of this year the teacher was the one singing but last week he asked me and this other person to sing instead and I was about to be like “hahaha no it’s fine” because that thought scared me and I didn’t feel confident enough to. But another tiny part of me was like “this is how you BECOME confident” so I said yes and I had to sing into a microphone in front of the whole class (with my friend who very kindly offered to make me feel less awkward. shoutout to Netra) and lol I hated it but also loved it. I think I’m going to have to do that every time we play now, so by December I’m going to be ready for the Grammys; watch out guys πŸ˜šπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

Aaand last but not least, my favourite tip; LISTEN TO HYPE MUSIC. For me, songs by Little Mix, from Reputation by Taylor or songs by Abigail Barlow make me feel like I rule the world. I highly suggest listening to any upbeat (bonus points if they’re self-empowering) songs in the morning that will set a great tone for the rest of the day. Here are some personal favourites that I actually dance to while I brush my teeth every morning lol:

  • Girl Almighty – One Direction
  • All Me – Boys World
  • Wings – Little Mix
  • just like magic – Ariana Grande
  • Getaway Car – Taylor Swift
  • Nobody Cares – Abigail Barlow

tadaaaa!! I hope you guys made it through and enjoyed this post because I really enjoyed writing it!

chat with me in the comments about whether you think you’re confident or not and things that help you feel more confident because trust me, I still need advice. or talk about other things too, what was the best thing that happened recently? what is your favourite type of weather? when is your birthday?? πŸ’ž

Song rec. of the post: Ocean Away by Barlow & Bear. This song is my favourite right now but the entire concept album is SO GOOD MY GOSHHHH. Abigail and Emily are insanely talented, my queens πŸ‘‘ Currently going crazy for this song along with Every Inch so go on and listen to them and fall in love with them. or don’t, your choice.

Lots of love,

Taking Care of Curly Hair

*look at that title, I’m a songwriter ayyyy*

Hellooo super cool person reading this post.

Tomorrow is my first day of year 11 πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ

There are so many different thoughts going through my mind right now and it’s really a combination of “omg I’m in year 11 I’m practically an adult”, “ew I really don’t want to be an adult”, and “ugh I actually have to wake up early and physically go to school every day, how on earth did I do that before???”.

I’m also still processing the fact that August passed by so fast?? (august slipped away into a moment in time, cause it was never mineeeee. I listened to august while taking my dog on a walk yesterday evening and wow it was really an experience. it’s such a great ‘lonely summer evening’ song. I actually passed by my school while listening and was just like 😐). Oh well, at least this summer was better than last summer, for me at least. I don’t remember doing a single thing last summer, like at all.

Anyways, moving on to the actual topic of the post.

I always used to have wavy-ish hair as a child and I didn’t really mind that. But when I was around 12 to 13 years old my hair started growing curly and I was “WHAT is this”. I was very annoyed because at that time I was hoping my hair would become dead straight like most of the people I knew and instead my hair just decided to go in the totally opposite direction. I remember searching it up to see if it would go back to normal once I was done being a teenager and cried when I saw like a dozen blog posts of women talking about how they decided to just love their curly hair instead of trying to straighten it. Yeah I was not having a great time.

Here I am now as a nearly 16 year old who doesn’t search up “heatless hair straightening tutorial” on YouTube anymore. *cue the applause πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰* I know, I know, character development. I now like my curly hair (I mean the front half of my hair is curly and then the back half is straight but I have zero control over that so I’m just going to accept it) and for a while have been trying to find out how to take care of it properly.
So here are some tips that I found on the internet or other curly-haired people told me about. I don’t implement all of the tips every single time but I do try, it’s just a lot of effort 😭😭 Also I’m not a professional so yeah don’t quote me on any of this please I’m just a 15 year old child.

Okay here we go:

  • DON’T brush your hair when it’s dry: Curly hair is quite delicate so brushing curly hair while dry will cause a lot of breakage and destroy your curls. Plus you know how frizzy your hair gets. Instead you should…
  • Comb your hair in the shower: I always comb my hair with a wide toothed comb after having applied conditioner because I feel like it helps the comb glide through the hair a little bit better. It also helps to spread the conditioner.
  • Use a cotton t-shirt instead of a towel to dry: The texture of towels makes your hair weaker and more dry so it’s a lot more beneficial to use a cotton t-shirt or a microfiber towel, those are good as well.
  • Apply a curl cream after washing: I still don’t use curl cream because I just CAN’T FIND A GOOD ONE (recommendations are much appreciated) but everyone I know has told me to get one so I think you should too. Curl creams condition and moisturize your hair so they allow the curls to stay pretty and stay longer.
  • Use a silk pillowcase when sleeping: Cotton pillowcases apparently absorb the moisture from your hair, once again leaving it dry, brittle and frizzy. Also, the cotton fibers can tug on your hair and cause friction. I started using a silk pillowcase a few months ago and honestly my hair has been softer and less frizzy, HONESTLY. Silk pillowcases are also supposed to be better for your skin so that’s pretty awesome.
  • Wash hair 1-3 times a week: I think each point I mention basically has the same effect; shampooing your hair very often can dry it out and therefore ruin your lovely curls. I usually wash my hair once or twice a week because of this point and also because it’s such a hassle to wash my hair, gosh. My arm muscles should be much stronger at this point.
  • Curly girl method: The final point is the curly girl method. I personally haven’t tried this out because … I don’t know. But my cousin has really curly hair and she said the method worked out pretty well for her. Her curls look great so I can offer that if you don’t believe her. The method might not work for everyone and you will most likely have to modify a few things as you go along but I’ve mainly heard good things soooo. If anybody has tried this method PLEASE comment and let me know if you liked it or not.

Aaaand that’s all the tips I have for this post. There aren’t very many but they’re pretty useful.

If you have any other advice or some more tips for me to add to the post, let me know in the comments! I really do need more tips lol. Even if you don’t have curly hair, just talk to me about anything at all. What kind of hair do you have? Do you like it? What’s the worst haircut you’ve ever gotten?

Song recommendation of the post: Something In The Water by Boys World is such an amazing, summery and vibey pop song, LISTEN TO IT. I wish they would’ve released it at the beginning of the summer because I could’ve listened to it more but I can handle it. Go listen now and let me know what you think of it!! πŸ’™

Love, Hreem xx

Dear Future Me…

hey guyss!

*a literal 5 minute pause where I try to think of what to write because what on Earth are you meant to write in an introduction?? my mind has gone BLANK*

how are you doing?? well, hopefully ☺️

recently me, my cousins (hi Anushka and Jaanvi if you’re reading) and my aunt were talking about how we think we’re going to be in the future and what we’re going to do. So I was like hahah we should write this down somewhere and then look at it in 5 years and see what’s changed. And THEN I remembered a lovely website called futureme.org where you write yourself an email and then choose a date for you to receive that email. if that makes any sense.

Basically, first you write a letter to yourself talking about anything you want. Then you pick when you want to receive this email (it could be a certain amount of years or even a specific date) and send the email. The email will then be sent to you on the date you chose and you have no way of reading it before the specified date. That’s pretty great because I know I’d get a little curious and impatient and try to read a bit before I’m supposed to actually get the email oops.

so yeah we ended making predictions about how we thought we’d be in five years and whether we’re still doing certain things we do now (e.g. I wrote that I’d better be still blogging or else I’m throwing hands 😀) and it was extremely fun.

I’ve actually written two other emails on that website. One I wrote I think 2-3 years ago that I’m going to get on my 18th birthday (I don’t even remember a single thing that I wrote in that lol I’m so curious) and another one me and my friends Simmy and Maia wrote together in school once that we’re supposed to get when we graduate school (yikes but also yay).

To the person reading this, I want you to go to that website now and write yourself a letter.

It can be as long or short as you want and you can receive in in 10 years or a week (a week would be pretty pointless but you do you bestie). Just do it because it’s honestly so much fun and you can write about anything in the world because you’re the only one who’s going to see it. Plus imagine how fun it would be when you wake up 5 years later to see an email from yourself. It sounds pretty great doesn’t it? yeah it does.

This website could also be an amazing way to manifest what you want because you can basically script. (if you don’t get what any of that means, here’s a short video you can watch). I hope I explain this well 😫:

So you can choose a date in 1 year and think of all the things you want to have by then. e.g. more friends, better grades, have travelled somewhere etc.
Then, pretend to be you in one year and write a letter to your friend or past self or really anywhere you want and talk about all of these things like you already have them.
For example you could be like:

Dear 15-year-old me,

hey it’s 18 year old Hreem and you won’t believe all the things that have happened! I finally went to a Taylor Swift concert and it was the best experience of my life!!! It was like a dream and I went with five of my new best friends ☺️☺️…

I’m sure you get the idea. I really do want to go to a T Swizzle concert tho.

Just talk about it in so much detail as if you really have everything you want and then just send it and forget about it and it could happen! I suggest you watch more youtube videos on that for a better explanation because obviously I’m not an expert, even though I seem like one 😚😌

aaand that’s all for this post. I hope you liked it and that it inspired you to go write (do it now, do it do it gooo).

Talk to me in the comments about if you have done this before or literally anything at all!

Has anything interesting happened in your life recently? What did you dream about last night? What’s the last movie you watched and did you like it?

Lotsss of love,

Hreem xx

11 Years of One Direction πŸ₯³πŸ˜­

*credits to my cousin Jaanvi for keeping me company while I wrote this*

hello my bestiesssss

happy 1D day!!!!!

very bittersweet because obviously they are not together at the moment *wooowwwww nobody knew that*.
I do still believe in a reunion because Niall and Liam basically confirmed it and I trust them (honestly I don’t because they said 18 months and look where we are now but whatever lol I’m willing to give them another chance).

Anyways, in honour of 11 lovely years, here is me talking about my top 11 One Direction songs (in no particular order) with two honourable mentions because I feel bad for the songs I don’t pick that I still love.

What Makes You Beautiful (DUH)

What Makes You Beautiful is iconic and a classic so you know I have to start off the list with it. Can’t believe the first thing we heard them sing from an original song was “you’re insecure” ’cause like yeah I know but did I ask guys πŸ™„ In short, I’m never going to stop jamming to WMYB. (I am mad that Louis and Niall never got a solo though, that was extremely rude).

What A Feeling

THIS SONG. I need to someday drive in a convertible at sunset in summer with the roof down with my best friend and me blaring this song while singing it at the top of our lungs. It’s very specific but it has to happen because this song is such a good carefree song with a guitar riff in the background that is so *chef’s kiss* and perfect harmonies. This song is my best friend Noelle and I’s song because we found out that we both really love it so that makes it even more important to me lol. She’s gonna be the one in the car with me in the previously mentioned scenario 😚.

Strong

Strong is so 😭😭 I love Strong very very much because idk it’s just so asjsjsdh and I’m in love with the whole chorus but the line “you make me strong” really pushes it over the edge. I had a phase where this song was on repeat and later found out that my friend Simran had that phase for a while too so that solidified its place in my heart because the fact that both of us were unknowingly obsessed with the same song is pretty cool.

18

18!! ALSO!! OWNS!! A PIECE!! OF MY!! HEART!!!!! Yeah I hope that says everything. It’s just so sweet and romantic, plus I love the line “all I can do is say that these arms were made for holding you” because how could you not? 🌹 Oh and who could forget “we took a chΓΆnce”.

Hey Angel

At first I didn’t really love Hey Angel and thought it was kinda boring (😀) but now it’s one of my favourites so I’m glad I came to my senses. Literally everyone’s voices sound so good in this song and the rasp in Harry’s voice in “to come to the other siiiiide” gives me life. Omg and the bridge is bridge city because it starts off already great with Liam and then Louis decides to bless us with his harmony and take the bridge to another level. Thank you for writing this masterpiece Louis and Liam πŸ₯°

Olivia

Olivia is a very summery-springy song that’s super β˜ΊοΈπŸ’žπŸ¦‹βœ¨πŸπŸŒΉ and because of that I love it. The violins and slight trumpets in the song are so prettyyyy. Apparently there were meant to be horns in the chorus but then they took them out 😐 what was that for 😐

Right Now

I think we can all agree that Zayn owns Right Now, it’s literally Zayn feat. everyone else because he carries the choruses and the bridge. Plus his vocals are always on point so thanks bestie. The fact that Louis starts this song makes it so much better because his 1D days voice is very comforting to me for some reason and in this song he sounds perfect.

If I Could Fly

If I Could Fly 😭😭 Who doesn’t love a good sad love song? This song is so sad but I just really love it because it’s super stripped down with just the piano and then it starts to like build up from the bridge. Once again everyone sounds amazing in this song and I literally have nothing else to say except … ouch.

Midnight Memories

I don’t know why I love Midnight Memories so much but I just do. The pop/rock combination in the song is so great and I remember being obsessed with it years ago. It’s a very very fun song and I’m never gonna stop loving it, that’s for sure. I’d also consider this another bridge city because Harry and Niall slayed it 😌.

Steal My Girl

Steal My Girl mostly holds sentimental value because I remember vibing to it with my mom when I was like 10. I do still love the song though but I am aware that it definitely is not one of their best so my views on it are probably biased. It reminds me of simpler times β˜ΊοΈπŸ’ž

Temporary Fix

Don’t think anyone expected Temporary Fix to be on here but here we are 😊😢 I just think it’s cool how they kind of tested the waters of rock music and did it pretty well in my opinion because the melody and vibe and all are pretty cool. I wish they would’ve at least released some kind of rock album or even an EP before going on hiatus because I would’ve LOVED that (me acting like I listen to rock music at all. I’m just kind of enjoying the vibe lately because I love drums and the electric guitar ahhhh).

HONOURABLE MENTIONS

Through The Dark

Through The Dark really deserved to be on the list and it definitely would have if it was my top 12 1D songs so just keep that in mind. There’s just something about the song that I find very comforting and it’s funny because the song just randomly grew on me out of nowhere.

Girl Almighty

aaand the final song on this post is the lovely Girl Almightyyy. I might not have a clue what 80% of this song means (Her light is as loud as as many ambulances as it takes to save a saviour? She floats through the room on a big balloon?) but it’s still a great song to dance around to. Me and my mom love listening to it in the car while aggressively dancing to it and asking each other what the lyrics mean for the 57th time. I actually listened to it before my exams this year to get more hyped and confident lol, I’d say it worked. So here’s to staying young and made of lightning ⚑️

*Formal apology to the Take Me Home album because I didn’t include any songs from it. Still love you*

And that, my loves (my loves???), is the end of my 11 years of 1D post.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it and please please PLEASE comment your favourite One Direction songs below because I love seeing what everyone’s favourites are ☺️✨ If you haven’t heard any of the songs I mentioned, I highly recommend you listen to them because I’m crazy for them.

A random question to end this post: What Night Changes date would you go on? (from the music video) and guess which one I’d pick lol.

Also, for the heck of it, here’s a picture of me and my mom with the 1D wax figures in London back in like 2015.

Loads of love and reminiscing-ness,

Easy (eggless) Tiramisu Recipe

Fun fact: it’s hard to take good pictures of tiramisu because the angles are so random

hey everybodyyyyy

I recently realised that it’s been so long since I’ve done a recipe post and those are so fun so here we are today.

The recipe is actually from this website but I wanted to share it with you guys as well so just saying this is not my recipe πŸ™‚

This recipe does not include eggs and is super easy (I said that in the title but still pretend to be shocked please). Like literally I made it all by myself with a teensy bit of help from my mom because I don’t know how to make coffee lol. It’s also quite quick if you exclude the refrigerating time.

Okay so here’s the recipe (you HAVE to try it out, it’s pretty good)

Ingredients:

  • A box of plain McVities Digestive biscuits (you can probably use any kind of plain biscuit but I always use digestives)
  • 1 cup of mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup espresso (you may need more or less but you’ll figure it out as you make the tiramisu)
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder

Method:

  1. First, beat the whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks.
  2. Next, mix the sugar, vanilla extract and mascarpone together and then mix in the whipped cream too. Use an electric mixer to ensure that everything is well combined.
  3. Bring out your dish or cups that you’re making the tiramisu in. Dip a biscuit into the espresso for around two seconds (not too long or else it’ll get soggy) and then put it into your tray/cup. Repeat this until the whole thing is lined.
  4. Then, evenly spread half of your mascarpone and whipped cream mixture on top of the biscuits.
  5. Put another layer of biscuits dipped in espresso and then the cream on top.
  6. Lightly sprinkle a thin layer of cocoa powder using a sieve.
  7. Wrap the tray/cups in cling film and leave them in the fridge for around five hours to overnight. (overnight is usually better if you make it in the afternoon or evening).

Aaaand that’s all!

Told you it’s a really easy recipe 😌

Let me know if you try this out and if you like it or not! I definitely recommend you to try it out because it’s summer sooooo why not?

Also just wanted to let you know that from now on I’m going to include a song recommendation at the end of my posts because it’s really fun and also I recently recommended my cousin a song and she’s basically in love with it so that made me very happy ☺️

Song recommendation of the post (?? probably gonna change the name): Till Forever Falls Apart by Ashe & FINNEAS. Well aware that this song isn’t new but it’s been stuck in my head lately and I really love it πŸ˜­πŸ’ž so CHECK IT OUT and let me know what you thinkkk.

Lotsss of love,

Hreem xx
