Positivity Reminder

Hey everyone!

Yeah I haven’t posted in ages but I just had to take a short break because my schedule has been pretty busy and overwhelming lately. I realised I say that almost every post and it’s probably really annoying so I’m going to work on that.

But I’ve got a bunch of posts written for me to post anytime, I just need some pictures to go with the post. It’s getting kinda difficult now because the weather in Dubai has been craazzzy. One minute it’s nice, then it’s cloudy, then it drizzles, then it pours down and then it’s sunny again. Like whaaat?

Okay but this post is just mostly a reminder to be happy and positive and get a break once in a while. WE WERE ON A BREAK! Sorry, just had to add that in there😊 Recently (well, not so recently) I uploaded a post and in school my friend Yana (check out her blog) said: “I know it’s kinda weird to say this but I really look forward to your posts, I mean, they’re really interesting.” And that actually made my week because I couldn’t stop thinking about it! Then later my friend Noelle said that I post really interesting and original stuff and I’m like ♥♥♥♥

Anyways, I just wanted to add that because well, it feels good to know that someone out there really likes what I write. Even if it was only one person. BTW Yana wa the one who isnpired this post so go go go give her blog a follow <<here>>

Compliment the next person you meet

What I Got For My 13th Bday

IMG_7556I know, I know.

This is one of the most cliche posts and is long overdue.

Buuut, in my defence, some people gave me my gifts this week because they didn’t deliver or for other personal reasons. JUST SAYING: I didn’t write this post to brag or show off, I just enjoy reading other people’s posts/watching videos about this as it gives me some great gift ideas! Also, it’s just really fun.

Here are a few things I picked out! (I gave everyone credit because I knew they would ask for it)

  • Porcelain Rose beats from my mom (which are sooooo goooood)
  • A little set of baby blue makeup brushes from Sakshi that are super soft
  • A Cropped ‘Friends’ hoodie from Milla (!!!)
  • A black and white striped romper from Maya & Mia that I really love ♥
  • Bright and pastel Tombow brush pens from my little brother
  • A loveeely Pandora gift card from my aunt
  • A cute little Superman Phoebe Funko (also from ‘Friends’) from Yana
  • The cutest little denim top which me and Yana bought together
  • A few little goodies from Icing from another one of my aunts
  • A Wreck This Journal from my cousin
  • and a few more little things that I don’t want to bore you with

Another thanks to everyone that wished me and gave me these gifts because I had an amazing 13th birthday!

London Photo Diary

Hey there!

I am back from London and Prague,

So I am sitting here, trying to deal with this tragic breakup while I reminisce over the BEAUTiful sights.

Which basically means that I’m looking back at all the pictures and the *shopping* (woop woop). If I put all the pictures from London and Prague in this post then I’m afraid you won’t make it ’til the end because you would’ve dozed off. Just to make sure you don’t fall asleep now, I’ll get started; just remember it’s supposed to be a photo diary so there won’t be any writing!

Monday 6th August

Tuesday 7th August

Wednesday 8th August

Thursday 9th August

Saturday 11th August

aaaand thank you everybody!

Are you a fan of pictures? Or not so much…

10 Things You May Not Know About Me

nita-shared-a-sketch-with-you.pngHeyya!

BTW: I did not buy balloons especially for this post, I took this picture on my brother’s 10th birthday and I finally found a use for it.

I started this blog more than a few months ago so this post has been due for a while. Sorry!

Things like this are all over youtube and WordPress so I’m sure you’ve all seen them. Things like: ’25 facts about me!’ I’ve even seen a post with 100 facts!! But I’m not interesting enough for that many facts so I’ll just do as many as I can 🙂

I Severely Dislike Cinnamon

This might not be like OHMYGOD SHE DOESN’T LIKE CINNAMON, IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD! But most of the people I tell this to are extremely surprised because, well, I guess cinnamon is a popular spice. I remember once it was my hamsters birthday when I was about 6 so my mom and I made cupcakes and later when I tasted it I realised it was cinnamon and I got so mad 😂

 I am a Vegetarian

I think I mentioned this in one of my first few posts but I didn’t really have many readers that time so you wouldn’t know unless you were here from the very start! Comment if you were :)) Basically I don’t eat meat or eggs but I can still have stuff like milk and cheese.

I Have a Food Blog

Last year me and a few of my friends started this recipe blog and then told the teacher it was for school so that we would get extra credit (insert an evil girl smiling). This year we restarted it on WordPress and here it is: <<DIY Kitchen Diaries>>

I’m Learning to Speak French

No comment on this because we don’t really learn things that are helpful in life. That puts you in an awkward situation when you’re the only one in the family who knows the least bit of French and everyone’s staring at you expectantly but you have no idea what the lady is saying…

I’m Obsessed With Notebooks

I think many bloggers and YouTubers can relate to this (or maybe not) but I just love some notebooks and how they’re planned out and their covers or page designs. For that reason, I have about 6 notebooks and I’m wondering what to do with three of them…yikes…

Me is a Neat Freak

Sometimes I feel like a Monica (from Friends) but I’m not as much a freak as she is haha. It’s just really satisfying when everything is organised and when notebooks have all these dividers and an index and stuff.

To This Day I’ve Had 16 Pets

It sounds cool but it really isn’t. All the animals are: 7 fish, 7 turtles, a hamster and a dog. So now you realize it’s not actually that amazing.

I Love Friends

I lurve Friends so much because it’s just the funniest show ever! There’s also an episode for every feeling emotion and celebration. My favourite characters are Monica, Phoebe and Chandler; no offence to the other characters 😉 Tell me your favourite character if you watch it!

Pictures are My Thang

It’s the coolest thing ever (for me) to print pictures and stick them up on the wall because everytime I look at them I remember what happened at the time of the picture which I love ♥️

One Day I’d Like to Visit All the Countries in Europe

I’m sure someone else can relate to this because travelling is amazing.

Thank you, everybody, if you have managed to read until the end of the post, and congratulations.

Share a fact about yourself in the comments!

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?

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?
