New Discovery!

Today has been my first lazy day since I finished school last week! So, I have done nothing productive! I’ve been playing the Kim K game, watching the Recess movie and listening to Spotify!

Whilst on Spotify I fell in love with Lucy Hale and her album, Road Between! Lucy is in Pretty Little Liars but I have only just listened to her album. It is sooo good!! Her songs are country pop, I really love country music. Some of her songs remind me of Taylor Swift’s early music. My favourite songs already are Loved and Kiss Me!! They are so cute and I just love them.

It’s Hairspray!

At School, I am part of something called Arts Award. It is basically similar to Duke of Edinburgh but focuses on the arts (so there is nothing outdoorsey thankfully!!) There are three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

As part of the qualification we have had to produce the play, Hairspray! And today was our performance! We started the process in January with the casting and slowly starting rehearsals. I was in charge of the production (including the media and props). To pass our Gold level we had to direct the play fully by ourselves. The whole cast and production team have worked so hard over the last few months and I am so proud of what we have all achieved.

The play went amazingly this evening (despite a few mistakes). As a result of this play, I have made so many new friends who I will hopefully keep in touch with now this is over! We have had such a good time, I’m going to miss it so badly!

Some warm up exercises before the show!

The final run-through!!

This has been such an amazing experience and has really got me thinking about whether I want to venture into the production of musicals as a career! It has definitely given me more confidence and better leadership skills!

Surprise, Surprise!

Today me and a group of friends went to a shopping centre near where we live for our friend, Miranda’s, birthday. She is going away for a month to Borneo and her birthday is while she’s out there so we wanted to give her a few surprises before she left!

It’s kind of hard to explain but… basically, we had planned for Miranda to go with Phoebe. Then me and Tasha would turn up and surprise her! We agreed that they would sit in Starbucks and we would walk in. I filmed her reaction.

Then we did a bit of shopping and went for a cheeky nandos.

After our nandos, we had another surprise for Miranda! She loves Lola’s Cupcakes, especially their red velvet cakes. We brought this into Nandos for her birthday.

Summer Update!

Hello everyone! I am back to blogging, FINALLY.

The main reason why I’ve been absent is that I have been doing my GCSE’s (these are exams you take when you’re 15/16 yrs old). I am so happy that they are over, I can now relax and enjoy the extra long Summer holidays! As I now have more time I will definitely be blogging more. On what you may ask? Well that is what I am here to explain…

I am going to be doing a series called Summer Bloggin’ (like Summer Lovin’ from Grease! (wow my sense of humour is awful!)) I guess it’s kind of similar to Vlogmas. Basically I will be blogging every day, if I can, it all depends whether I do anything interesting or if I have Wi-Fi!!!!! I want this Summer to be amazing and really productive. I have been writing a list of things I would like to accomplish over the next two months.

I finish School in 3 days time, once that’s over the blogging begins! I am excited for this as I will be able to look back at these posts and remember what I did each day, it will be like a diary entry for you to enjoy. I hope it’s not going to be boring!

Within these posts there will also be generic posts, e.g my ootd (outfit of the day) or make-up favourites! My main aim is to create content but also enjoy it at the same time.

Now and then, depending on the topic, I will vlog the day or just take pictures (or even a bit of both). Hopefully they will be a bit more interesting than me rambling on about me going to the beach or something! As well as this some days I will write a review on a film I saw that day or a book I’ve finished. The best thing about this is neither of us will know what tomorrow will bring so it’s a surprise (I do love a good surprise!)

I hope you guys will enjoy this little series.

Lots of Love Em x
