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

It’s brutal out here

hey everyoneee!!

this is a very tiny post because my end of year exams start tomorrow and I’m very stressed 😭😭

I also have to go to school to take them which freaks me out because I haven’t physically been to school like at all, yeah. all my social skills (not that I had many to begin with if I’m being honest) are GONE and I can’t stand the thought of actually having to walk into my classroom for the first time this year knowing everyone else already has like met and stuff but I’m like the random girl there.

Can you tell I’m introverted and insecure?

ALSO GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO HAS THEIR EXAMS!!!!

We’re all gonna celebrate when they’re over (I definitely am, not sure how but in some way I have to)

so yeah I’ll see you guys next week when I finally (🙄) get around to doing the Q&A post that is like a month overdue already.

Oh well.

Love & luck,

Hreeemyyyyy

The Post-Exams Post

*credits to Milla for giving me this title*

Guess what, guys?!

My exams are over! Finitooooo (didn’t I say that in my exam post last year? I’m sure I did)

Anywaaays I’m super free now and I have more free time than I can handle because even the teachers have given up on teaching so we have no homework or anything. It’s actually quite boring tbh.

So now all I do is practice my guitar and learn new songs which is interesting until it gets to the point where I realise that all my favourite songs have super unknown chords like B minor or something like that. Some chords that literally aren’t humanly possible.

On the bright side I also have so much more time to have fun and hangout with my friends. Summer vacation starts in two weeks which is sooo exciting except for the fact that the weather in Dubai is already burning hot and it’s only going to get worse. I can’t wait to do some traveling too because I LOVE to travel!!

Have a great day 🙂

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!

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 🙂

A Guide to Dubai

Dubai Guide

Evening everyone!

Well, not so much evening for me but it is the evening for a lot of people around the world so…

ANYwhoo, I am extrEMEly sorry for not posting in over a week. I mean, who does that? But now it’s spring break ( hooray! ) so I will be able to post normally again. Also, I was a little bit jetlagged and sick after coming back from Switzerland so I’m not quite sure you’d actually want to read the posts at that time…

So, here’s a little post of stuff you should do in Dubai if you ever come. BTW, if you do then you should definitely tell me because I can give you more advice 🙂

Visit the Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa is obviously very iconic because it is ginormous, so you should visit it because the view from the top is great. But I don’t really advise this for people who are scared of heights because man is it tall!

Visit a Shopping Mall

I don’t know if you know but Dubai is full to the brim with great big shopping malls where you drop while you’re still halfway through your shopping list! (shop till you drop) In my opinion, the best malls to go to are: Mall Of the Emirates (MOE) or The Dubai Mall. Dubai mall is bigger but MOE has a few things that Dubai mall doesn’t so it’s just to get even.

Go to the Beach

UAE is a very sunny place so you should probably take advantage of the extra degrees by just dropping by at the beach because a) who doesn’t love the beach, and b) there is some delicious food and nice shops there too. So why not?!

Now here are a few things with shorter captions-

Visit a theme park: The weather’s perfect, you’ve got the chance, honestly why not?         Go to Ski Dubai: Come on, indoor skiing, that’s pretty self-explanatory.                                Dubai Aquarium: You can almost go inside the aquarium, how cool is that?!

The most important thing is probably to go on a bus tour because you’ll get more of your sight-seeing desire fulfilled too!

What’s a country you really want to visit?

February Monthly Round-Up

Hai everyone!

Today I’m going to be rounding up February in things I did and liked and random stuff like that. Please comment if you liked this and whether I should do it again/what I should add. Here We Go!

Something I’ve Been Enjoying

Lately, I’ve been really enjoying writing in my journal because it’s very calming. It’s also a great way to let some thoughts escape. If you don’t already write in a journal then I suggest you try it out for at least a few days, write in great detail though, or else you won’t get anything out of it.

Best Songs

These are the songs I listened to the most. They aren’t all new but I’ve been enjoying them anyway! I’ve listed them in order of how much I like them:

  • Gorgeous           by Taylor Swift
  • Complicated     by Avril Lavigne
  • Hit The Lights  by Selena Gomez

Blog Going-Ons

Since February started I received 7 more followers which is awesome and I now have 20 followers, including an email follower 🙂 In February I also reached 200 likes on my blog. Thank you guys so much for making February a great month for my blog stats!

What’s been the highlight of your February?

Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie

Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie

Already?! It’s not even spring yet gurrl!!!

I know, I know, it’s still winter, don’t worry about me…yet.

Firstly can we celebrate the fact that I am now chiclifethrumylens.com! No .wordpress.com. This may not be the coolest thing for you but it’s awesome for me so pls don’t burst my bubble.

Anywhoo, this is a recipe for you guys who plan your drinks early (i.e. me); if you don’t do it yet, I think you should probably start creating your summer drinks list. So here I’ve started you off with a Strawberry lemonade smoothie which is soooo refreshing!

 

Makes: 1|Time to Make: 7 mins|Difficulty: Super easy

 

What you’ll need to make this amazing drink:

  • 5-6 strawberries
  • ½ a tiny lemon (trust me, they’re very sour)
  • Around 34 cup milk
  • A few spoons of sugar
  • These measurements are not exact because they are for you to play around with and find the perfect taste for yourself!

How to make it:

  1. Cut your strawberries into halves and put them into a blender.
  2. Squeeze out the juice of your lemon half and add that to the blender as well, then blend.
  3. Now add your milk and sugar in the blender and blend it once again.
  4. Taste your smoothie and see what else you need to add to make a taste you like.

E N J O Y ! ! !

Do you prefer smoothies with milk or without?

 

 

 

 

Buddy the Pug

This week’s photo challenge topic is ‘Beloved’.                                                                              So obviously, I used a picture of my dog I found from a while ago.

His name is Buddy and he is a Pug. He is also just about the cutest thing ever but I’m pretty sure you got that figured out by now 😋 We’ve had Buddy for just a few years but he’s part of our family and he does some very hilarious and stupid things which make us all laugh.Beloved WPC

He does things like:

Roll in our rangoli (as seen above)                                                                                                    Roll on carpets                                                                                                                                Bark at balloons and cherries

The list could go on for a while so I’m afraid that’s the end!

Who else is excited that Zoella’s making her blog daily again?
