Now this morning, I was perched in bed just having a good old think about my past. At school the year 11's have just left for their study leave, meaning that for most of them they are entering a 13 week summer holiday before going to college or coming back to sixth form. A lot of my year (year 12) are saying how they best enjoy it because they are going to miss all the parties and all the celebrations when they are in the next year. That got me thinking about my friends. 

Now for the past few years I have swapped friendship groups so many times... I moved around the year having friends in all groups, although now I have settled into a huge group who are just the very best of people. Although throughout all this time I have met one person, who was there for me all the time... he is now my boyfriend surprisingly... anyway! I was thinking this morning that the best time of the past year as not the parties that I went to.. it was the friends that I had with me. At the moment I have 6 very close friends, we are all mad and weird, that's probably why we get along so well.. we know what to say to each other to cheer us all up, and we know whats best for each other. Without all the soppyness... I love my friends, they are people who I want to keep close to me throughout life.. no matter how much they say that we won't stay in contact after sixth form (they have no idea how good a stalker I am) 

For those of you my age out there... keep your friends close... you will never know how much you need them when something happens.

Baking some cupcakes.. yum

Well hey there :) Today, I had a whale of a time baking... I was going to do some yesterday but came across the small problem of there being no sugar *gasp in horror*... so anyway, I decided to do plain cupcakes.. then I had a better idea... I was going to spice it up a little ;) I then decorated them, now you may think they look terrible but my friends... this is the best I have ever made cupcakes and I personally impressed myself. Although mum wasn't impressed considering her kitchen looked like a bomb had hit a flour factory (everyone has to agree that stuff goes everywhere) Oh and also I have died red hands and also tints of blue, I look magical ^_^ This is the outcome! :)
The very first two decorated

Spicing it up with red and blue and two hearts...
The top 12 ;) 

Reserved for the boyf :') 

The not so good lot :( 

We had a breakage... Mr. Duck got a snapped neck...

My ingredients are a simple 4 things... 4 duck eggs (they are meant to be better for baking, so I might as well use them as I have egg laying ducks in the garden) 8oz of self raising flour, 8oz of butter and then 8oz of sugar :) Although today I did about 12 oz of everything to match how much the eggs weighed.. smush all that together my friends and the outcome are some pretty yummy treats :) add your own toppings, icing, sugar, sweets, sprinkles! You name it, whack it on :) 

I would do the complete recipe but I have already done it on a past post.. so if you want to know how to do it flick back on my blog to a couple of months ago :)

I haven't tried one yet... I probably should before I let others eat them. I could be murdered if they don't taste okay after all the mess I made haha :) I must defend myself and say that I did tidy it all a way myself, even if it did take about an hour and mum was having to shimmy around me to make tea. Happy baking readers :) thank you for your time ;)

New bedroom! :)

Well this is going to be a little post me thinks again :) So recently my brother, Ben, moved out (whippieee)! This is kinda sad as I don't get to see him as much and I do really miss him (I hope he doesn't see that) although.... It also means that I get his old room! Now my friends this is very good news because I basically had a box of a room, no lighting really apart from my desk light and now I have a room so much bigger and lighter! We just finished it this weekend and I have to say it looks so much nicer than I expected :') Here it is.... 

Pillows and Teddies

Duvet Cover



Crafts Elephant

Pretty picture

Heart lights

Best Frame
Now I know you might all be thinking, why am I doing a post like this? Well truthfully it's because I am amazed at what I have managed to do, I did most of the painting in here, and also helped build everything (my dad did that hard parts) and I am pretty damn proud of myself :) I have never had anything so pretty and fun before and I intend to keep it all clean and lovely this time :) this is one thing that I have managed to cram in before my exams... (starting tomorrow eek) 

Well thank you for the read :) TTFN <3

Exam time

Now as every other 17 year old in school we are coming up to exam times... YAY... I joke, not yay at all... All this means is about 2 months where we want to scream, cry and rip our hair out. This is not a fun time of the year. Every teacher believes that their subject is more important, no matter what order the actual exams go in... for example, this weekend I had a psychology revision session at school, fair enough, although the exam isn't until NEXT month and my history exam is TUESDAY this week.. so I missed a day of revision for my nearest exam, hmm, I do not see the logic in having the revision session so far away from the exam, but hey :) 

For now, I have decided I am going to get early nights in bed, relaxing with a candle on my bed side table and my pretty little lights... this will be my de-stress time as I will spend from 6:30am until 8pm stressing, crying and wanting to rip out my own hair, much like everyone else :) 

So for all you readers out there who may have exams near now, I wish you all luck and the very best :) remember, be calm, don't be too much of a moose and rip out hair etc... deep breathing and possibly eating too much chocolate is the way forward from now me thinks :) TTFN <3

A return & the zoo

Well hey there my readers and fellow bloggers! :) I think it has been about 5 weeks since my last post! Although I have to say not much has really happened since then, I have been very boring... although this post is one I wanted to use to show my journey to the zoo :) So here goes... 

It was my 17th birthday on the 1st of May, so as a present mum and dad took me and my boyf, Chima, to the zoo! :) YAAY! Well I know many of you may be thinking that this is a bit of a silly present for a 17 year old, BUT my friends, the zoo is amazing no matter how old you are. Besides we mainly went for the photos, as you may have seen I love photography, and my parents much more so! :) ANYWAY, Saturday the 4th we went to Chester Zoo! It was about a 2 hour drive, but it was very very very worth it :) twas a sunny day too! I will share some photos with you :) 

The sun was reflecting off it's feathers.... 

Blue Butterfly :) 

Close up of another Flutterby :) 

Yawning Cheetah

Pretty butterfly!

Tiger.... LOVE this one :') 

Zebra... omnomnoming :)
Licking it's nose? YUM.
So there you go :) these are the photos I took, not all obviously, I think I took about 300 :) As you do... these are the best I think that I can show :) I particularly  love the tiger and the cheetah :) although they are my favorites, I don't know about you :) I hope you enjoy them all too... 
Anyway :) the actual day was lovely! We got there about 11 after a 2 hour journey, although dad was moaning so much that he was hungry we had to eat before we got to look at any of the animals, sadly, the giraffes were being cleaned out when we wanted to see them, so mum was a little miffed because they were what she wanted to get a photo of the MOST! Sad times.... Other than that the day was great :) it was fun and the sun was shining on us! Yaay :) 

So I think that's enough blabbering for now :) I hope you enjoy the photos again, just to say... GO TO THE ZOO PEOPLE, IT'S SO MUCH FUN. TTFN :) hope to do another post soon.... :) BYE! <3
