Girly advice part 2 Boys and Boyfriends.....

Hey everyone I'm startingto get under eye bags no full stop just no..... School is clearly killing me how are you finding it. Well hey whose excited for Christmas I've started reciting songs ( not sad ) and Christmas present shopping but hey I love Christmas but this blog isn't about Christmas but Christmas is coming ..... So I hope this post helps you a bit if your in a relationship and needing some advice.

Ground rules and things I hate in relationships

DO NOT BE THAT COUPLE WHO CANT SPEAK OR MAKE CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER IN SCHOOL !!! this annoys me sooooooooooooooooooooo much I can't stress I think to myself what's the point your wasting your time but hey your choice.

Don't go in a relationship if you don't want to. Dares are stupid and don't feel peer pressured to have a boyfriend.

Don't think its cool having a boyfriend, if the rest of the crowd has boyfriends doesn't mean you need have one.

Make sure the boy respects you for you and your NOT in a abuse or hurting relationship. If you are dont hide away behind locked doors leave and never look back and make sure you tell someone.

I've had a few not big relationship
They were fine and im happy with all outcome
Most boys are stupid self assured prats and they smell sooo bad but I do have some friends which are boys and they are awesome and the best. Its alright to have friends which are boys.

The most important thing in a relationship is that you respect each other and you get along. You have some of the same personalities but a few different so you try new things. Make sure the boy is kind and caring not cruel and abusive.

Don't be scared to leave a relationship that's fine if its not meant to be then ok. You will one day fine the perfect match don't rush it love will come around for now enjoy having a boyfriend or be a single pringle either way as long as your happy that's what's important.

I hoped this helped if your a taken bacon or a single pringle make sure your happy and remember it's only 34 days till Christmas! Christmas posts coming soon :D

Paper Towns review

HI everyone how's everyone feeling about the weather cold strong winds, the sky getting darker earlier but hey Christmas is nearly here YAY. Who's excited comment below what you want. Hope my friend post was helpful if you like advice post. Anyway this is a little different but I did mention that I was reading Paper Towns by John Green but I finished it about a month ago so I thought I would write a short review.....

Paper Towns by John Green
Paper towns is a mysterious, detective book with humour through the book with extra love I really liked it. Paper Towns is based in Florida around a group of teens but mainly around Margo and Quentin who have had a friendship since toddlers but when a disturbing event split hem apart they didn't see each other as much but Quentin had a secret rush and when Margo goes missing Quentin has to discover the truth before it's too late. This book is full of plot twist and creepy bits but is definitely a page turner. I rate Paper Towns 4 **** and is a read if you like a mystery other John Green books are good what is your favourite by him and what are you reading at the moment comment below. This is a quick sum up did you like my review ??

Not long till Christmas YAY

Some girly advice

Hey everyone guess what I went shopping today went shopping yesterday and going shopping tomorrow just a brief sum up of my life. Anyway in previous post I've mentioned that I will do a girly advice post. This one going to be about friends. I'm lucky enough that I have a small group of friends which I can truly call them mine my angles my BBFS but I also have a friendship circle who are friends and they'll be their for me but not the same as my BFFS. We all have our small girly cat fights and we act all ahh their stupid I hate them but then you realise ahh that's stupid to fight over and run back to each and bake each other cookie. Ps love cookies but not always the best option. So this blog post will help you with the problems you may have and how to resolve them and more ! Hope you enjoy !

Fights and how to resolve them 

Trust me I'm no friend expert but sometimes you need to look at the fight and say to yourself is it worth stropping over or should we just forget sometimes it that easy but not all the time and sometimes the fights and little bigger and you can't just simply apologise. When fights like these happen the best thing to do is give each other some space don't go spreading a rumour that such and such is horrible just walk away and have sometime to think but make sure it doesn't look like your ignoring them just have some time to think. After this you may think oh we are both stupid and get back together but that's happens in dreams it doesn't always happen in reality. Another thing you can do is talk talking helps again if your friend doesn't talk give him/her some more space but sit down together and talk have a certain time each say 5 minutes to let out everything in your head and then swap at the end hopefully you will come to an apologise but here's the catch no one wants to apologise first but apologising is the only way in life you will get to move on so either say we'll apologise together or be the bigger person and just say I'm sorry. If none of this works keep following these steps and if still no success leave walk away and make a new friend theirs no point worrying over a friend who doesn't respect you for being a friend as you've tried so hard to fix the wall of your friendship.

What to do if you think your friend is lying to you

Wait don't confront her/him immediately if you see something small your friend will find you annoying. and admit it we all tell lies but remember they will all come back to you and back fire so try to be honest with each other as this makes a really good friendship. But sometimes friends aren't really friends and they'll may be lying and people who lie may not be the best people to be around. Friends may lie as they don't want you to find out about something ie family issues or other friendship issues but sometimes they may be lying to get attention or just being mean. The best thing to do go up to them a talk ask why and if they say I'm not really try to persuade them and if not walk away and say your lying then and maybe when you've both calmed down try to speak by speaking you can actually help your friend she may be clogged up fall of emotions and is too embarrassed to say anything but by doing that that what makes you a good friend by trying to help. But on the contrary she may be hiding things from you and knowing them will help your friendship or if you guys can't resolve then leave she may come back and if make a promise try to build up your friendship wall until its strong again but if not she/him not worth it.

Hope these points have helped and if not then contact me -
If you want anymore advice then comment below remember I can always talk and help.

My De-stress routine

My de stress routine 

Hi everyone hope you are having a good half term. Hope you lit a pumpkin scented candle or drank something in Starbucks . Anyway this post is always useful for us girls ( or boys) but mainly girls. School can be stressful through exams, friend issues or family so sometimes you need some me time and to get all the stress of your shoulder so I will take you through what I do to de-stress.

I firstly change out of my day clothes into some comfy over sized sweatshirt and sweatpants and take of any makeup I have on and jewelry I take off.  Then I make myself  a hot drink either a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate and cream with MARSHMELLOWS. Then I curl up in blankets and watch Netflix but I recommend a comedy or romance as this will help to clear your mind don't forget to light the candles. Then I have a pamper session lush and bubbles face mask and skincare routine. After that I go onto rituals and that is an awesome relaxing app which is great for de stressing their is also a shop so bonus and make sure you do some online shopping than I like to write a to do list or write down any thoughts on my mind in my journal and then I like to have a early life. Remember exams won't change your life you can only do your best so relax and breathe breathing helps.

So I hope this was helpful and don't worry your amazing enjoy your half term and don't forget to treat yourself ☺

Why I started blogging

Why I started Blogging
Hi everyone at last half term has come before us YAY. We can now sleep in not here that annoying alarm clock in the morning, not bother doing our makeup or hair and just stay in our PJS all day drinking coffee and tea while watching your favourite Netflix series on repeat in the dark like a vampire.( guilty pleasure) welcome to my life. Anyway this blogpost isn't about me venting to you guys about my sad but everyone does it half term but why I started blogging. My last post was my dream for the next 5 years blog related I thought I tell you why I started. Here goes hope you like !
I was watching YouTube like any girl my age does looking at all the inspirational video these pretty girls do and then I heard my mum say Zoella ( big inspiration) has just gone and bought a million pound mansion. I thought to myself I love Zoella's blog and YouTube channel and thought to myself why not it will be fun. So I started my blog. I was bit sad at first when no one was reading it but I waited I joined bloglovin and my blog started to grow I so happy when I started getting such and such pageviews a day and I didn't want to let you guys down I started to commit more and make this something big and I really am from the bottom of my heart so passionate about my blog. When people comment I so pleased as I love reaching out to you guys. You can ask me anything email me about friends, advice anything I'm always happy to talk and trust me my friends will tell you that I certainly not afraid to talk! I'll put my email address down below. At school I love English anyway and blogging is a great way to get things of your chest and improve your English skills. So all these reason add up for me blogging and I'm definitely not gonna stop now so tell your friends and keep reading and we can have a chat. Gossip Girls we can be bit all good things ( Netflix reference I'm so bad!)
Hope this enlighten you about why I'm sitting here at my desk typing away on my laptop when the smells of onion come from downstairs to blog for you. I'll do a girly advice series if you like giving you advice with friends and some personal experience and other good stuff keep reading and have good half term and make sure you have some me time.

Hi everyone this term of school is going so sloooowwww it kills me but anyway sorry for no activity but I'm coming back this week little series is all about my blog. I'm going to write about my dream for my next five years blog related.

I'm 12 at the moment so in 5 years I'll be 17 17 how scary is that. So this is this.

1- obviously popularity to grow that would be amazing my page views are already high but I want to pay you guys my regular readers some pay back blog more, social media more does that even make sense ? But this one is a no brainer popularity.

2- To reach out to you guys don't be afraid to comment down below it makes me real happy when you do, or comment ideas for blog post, I give good advice as well so if you want to chat in private than just email me- . If my blog gets more popular than I want to start polls and maybe even a giveaway......

3- More than a hobby, start to commit more and turn this day time into something big which relates to my next one which is where I need you guys to comment what you think.

4- To earn and ads- would you guys be annoyed if I put ads on my blog as I want to earn from my blog but at the moment I writing because I love it not because I want to earn.

5- Get someone to design my blog so the design looks real nice and professional which hopefully will grow the popularity if you know anyone comment and also comment design ideas as looking to refresh.

Red Magazine review

Hi everyone here I'm back and I won't let you down but today I'm doing a review. I haven't done many reviews so if you like let me know. I like writing what you want it helps me come up with ideas so don't be afraid to comment or contact me for advice. I'm on instagram- Vintage Haxs and I'm on 24/7 so that's the best way to get in contact. So to this post.

Red magazine, I've been reading them from June and they realise a new copy every month, when I go to the shop I can't wait to see it on the shelves I get so excited. Red is a fashion, beauty, makeup, lifestyle, travel and lots more. There is everything packed into it and is a go back magazine. It's £4
so I think it's reasonable price for the quantity and quality. If you want a curl up in bed, hot chocolate or tea to hand this is the magazine for you. They sometimes have small gifts but are high end so you get a little treat as well :). I highly rate this magazine and would definitely check it out, comment below your favourite magazine and I'll check it out too.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned and if you want something new to read this fall read this

10 things all girls should know

Hey everyone. It's now June and nearly the summer holiday. YAY! This post is going to be 10 things all girls should know. If you like this blog comment below and if you need to talk I'm here if you need any advice I'm willing to help as well. Don't forget to check out my YouTube channel Vintage Haxs and subscribe and go check me out on Bloglovin and follow me there. This is a longer intro than normal if you like them say and not also say. Now into the blog. ENJOY !

10 Things all girls should know

  1. Don't rush into having a relationship. It may seem cool but really it's better to be single and waiting instead of taken and faking. Don't rush and only marry a man if you would be proud to have a son like him!
  2. If your life gets rough from friendship, family or school work, make sure you have some quality you time, you time is very important if it's just going on a walk or having a pamper evening de stress.
  3. Don't let anyone take advantage over you, they may be a writer but your not a piece of paper to be written all over. Stand up and make sure you have several good friends who will back you up in these times.
  4. Don't think about what you did wrong in the past think about what you could achieve in the future. If someone hurts you and you think why bother remember cry a river then build a boat and get over it. I promise you it will get better but you have to keep moving forwards.
  5. Remember don't be afraid to get rid of people in your life if there bringing you down. Make sure that your not treating them like your priority when your just an option.
  6. Don't try to be like someone else, you are awesome just the way you are born you are unique. Don't try to be like the crowd be yourself weird or quiet. You have to be odd to be number one. So don't be afraid to be who you are as you are the most amazing person on this universe.
  7. Smile and keep going it's going to be OK.....
  8. You only have one life so stop worrying about what could go wrong and think about what could go right. Remember always choose happiness don't do anything you feel uncomfortable doing but do try and change you cants into cans and face some fears.
  9. Don't let the world change who you are. Don't let the world and the people into treat you the way they want to treat you stand up and make your life ran by you, your life is under your control and your control only. So enjoy it.
  10. And the last one you are beautiful and amazing just the way you are. Remember your world will be tough so don't let it change smile but let your smile change the world.

Hope this has helped. Hope you've enjoyed reading it. Love number of pageviews.

What makes a true friend

Random !
We all have friends that have betrayed us and we have friends that are like sister.
This post is all about what makes a true friend.

It's important that you can have a laugh with them.
That they care for you like your sister.
Is willing to be seen with you in public.
Eats your friends food without asking.
Only goes to school to see each other.
True friends stab each other with straws.
You know when there true as when you have a fight it can only get mad for a short period of time because you have to tell them something import.
Know your completely insane.
Is willing to stand in front of a train.

These are the main points. I have some amazing friends which make my world go round.

This post today is going to be all about What if and it may turn a bit weird, as always I hope you like and comment below any opinions and views and request on post as I happy to do so.

What if- The air we breathe in is actually a drug and we see the world we see and when you take drugs you see the real world and that's why drugs are illegal.

What if- We are living in a dome and we are a fake world and the real world is looking down on us.

What if- The things you forgot to thank god for last night weren't there when you woke up.

What if- A mass killer sickness wiped out the world and you were the only one to survive.

What if- The world stopped spinning and darkness came upon.

What if- The sun got to close and burned the world and all of it's population.

These are just a view of the many things we need to take time to think over. I hope these have made you stop and think.

Bye for now xx

About me

Hello my dear blogging family. I'm here today to write about me. On your profile you have a very small space to write about yourself so I thought I write a more in detailed one so you guys and me can become real good chums.

Lets get into it.
I'm Erin, and I'm in secondary school. I'm loving life at the moment even though exam are coming up it's great having my friends with me. So if you didn't know I get on with most people and have a large friendship bubble. My favourite subject at school is either Drama or History. History because of the teacher, he is the best teacher I have had in my whole life. He's funny and has that olden day way of teaching and I learn a lot from him. As I'm quite a confident person I love letting it all out through drama, I love performing in shows and competion. I'm taking Grade 3 acting in June... I'm rather musical I love having a sing in the shower and in there I sound like a international popstar, I don't know about you but we all do. I play piano and cornet I have passed my Grade 3 cornet and taking grade 1 in the summer. I love beauty and fashion and LOVE going shopping, I like learning about new styles and trends and finding out new techniques. If you have any tips on makeup etc comment below. I love animals and I want to be a vet when I'm older. My obsession is pugs they are my life and unicorns. Without Wifi and internet by world doesn't function. Instagram is my social media world so go follow me on that which is a new name tumblr_.girl16. Netflix makes me happy loving gossip girl, lush baths make my day. My bed is my my heaven, coffee keeps me alive.

This is all I can get of the top of my head but I hope it has helped you understand my craziness a bit better.

Something close to my heart

I was debating writing this blog today but finally decided to write it. I haven't wrote a blog before  about something so related to my life, today I'm going to tell you about my granddad who sadly died in 2008. My Grandad was the best, I have so many great memories with him even though I only spent a little while with him. My granddad was quite young 61 I think he died overnight from suffering a stroke out of nowhere it came as a shock and was really sad at the time. Now over 7 years later I'm pretty much over it but if I'm ever in doubt or worrying about something I can always talk to him. Wherever I go I know he will be in my heart.

If you want some tips on how to easy grieving comment on one of my picture on instagram. My account is tumblr_.girl16.

Hope you liked this post even if it was depressing but I wanted to let my fellow bloggers into my life a bit more.

How to face your fears

Hello World. The time is coming when it is nearly time to go back to school, the dreaded time is only a few days away, but to cheer myself up I'm going on a back to school shopping haul and other bits and bobs.
So this blog today is going to be about how you can face your fears, I'm going to give you 5 tips on how you can help conquer your fears once and for all.

I'm going to start of by telling you my fears and you may have friends that act all brave but actually they are most likely to have the most fears, you also might  have other friends who don't admit they have a phobia but they do. Now there are so many phobia you can have such as the dark or being home alone or phobia of always being alone, these are just a few of them.

Now my phobias and fears
1- Being home alone and hearing creaks, I don't mind being home alone say with my dog or something as you can say oh it's just the dog but when your completely alone and you hear stuff that always creeps me out. But this is a tip I've learnt, put some music on or the TV, sound is a great distraction and will make the room feel less tense.

2- Phobia of failing, I work really hard at school and always want to impress my teachers and parents, but when a test comes up I always worry so much and get so stressed over not passing and doing really badly. But most of the time I get a good score. Recently I've passed my Grade 3 cornet exam, so thrilled about that.

I don't have a lot of phobias but these are some I've wanted to share. Now to the tips on how to face your fears and phobia.

1-  Be positive, if your scared of heights and your decide your going to try to go up high and conquer that fear go up feeling positive when you get up there you'll have a little extra boost, say something like I can do it and repeat it. But if you go up there like Oh no I'm going to die, you'll get to the top and want to get down.

2-  Do it with your friends- If you have a fear of camping out, invite some friends round and do it together make it fun, play games, make it comfortable. Make sure you don't tell scary stories because then you have a doubt in the back of your mind, also make sure you have access back into your house if your not happy outside.

3- Distract your mind- Back to the fear of heights sometimes when I feel unsecure, I hum or sing a song which distracts my mind of the situation I'm in.

4- Find out some information about what your about to do- This will make you feel more comfortable about what your about to do and then you'll know what your about to face up to.

5-   Don't let your fears stand in front of your dreams, this quote says it all.

So I hope these tips have helped and now you will go out and start facing your fears.

How to achieve your goals

My lovely new candles
Hey everyone, so sad that easter is nearly over, ;(. But we still have time to enjoy the sunshine until we get cramped up in a classroom for 5 weeks. Went to Ikea today, new candles= Lush. new clock cool. Pretty good day.

This blog today is going to be all about How to achieve your goals. In this blog I will be giving you tips on how to soar to the stars. Also Go check out my YouTube channel which I have done a blog on before hand. Also comment if you want a Q and A. Lets get started.

1- DREAM BIG- Follow your dreams and don't let anyone stop you from fulfilling them.

My new alarm clock
2- Be positive- Never look down, always look up. If you feel your plans or dreams are failing smile and keep on going because if you keep that positivity up you WILL  reach your goals and dreams.

3- Try Try and Try again- Never give up, if you have failed the first time get back up and try again, if you give up you'll never give up. Resilience is all you need.

4- Plan- Don't go into a struggling situation and not have planned in advance your more likely to succeed if you have an action plan.

5- Don't try to achieve a goal which you don't like- Achieve a goal related to your passion, if your not passionate about it you won't give a hundred per cent of you true capability to make this dream come true.

These are my five top tips on how to achieve your dreams and goals, never give up and keep going.

My favourite room

I thought I would tell you about my house and my favourite room in my house. I think it is the same for everyone. My favourite room is my bedroom.

My bedroom is my favourite room because it lets me have privacy. My bedroom is the room I film my videos in. OMG it has my bed in and my bed is my life. I love hanging in there and going through social media. I love watching Netflix up in the comfort of my bed instead of in front of everyone. I've recently just decorated so it matches my style perfectly.  It makes me feel safe and homely. I always sleep well in there. Overall it is great it is comfortable and sweet.

This is why my bedroom is my favourite room. I love being at home. My house is bigger another for what we need. Even though it is sometimes messy, it's our home and I love it.

Why I'm feeling great at the moment

Hi, I'm feeling great at the moment for several reason. I thought I tell you all about it. Yesterday was just the start of why I feel great, I went on a shopping spree with all my gals and bought lots of nice items. Then I came home and decided to go on a run. I ran round several fields, it felt amazing getting out and getting fit. I came home to a lovely lush bath, which made my body feel great and totally relaxed my body. I watched Netflix and YouTube videos before going to bed. I woke up to clear blue skies with a gentle breeze which really uplifted my spirit. Later I'm going on a walk with my dog and my friends dog. It feels great getting out and getting fit. I'm also getting my hair cut and will post a pic of it when it's done. It's only 11 o clock but I'm feeling great and looking forward to the day ahead. :)

So these are the reason on why I'm feeling great and I wanted to blog about it because maybe this blog will give you some happiness to carry on the day with. Don't forget to smile and remember if your feeling down think positively and smile, this will boost your spirit, and good luck as it's April's fools day, hope you don't get pranked. :)

Plant for the Planet

Hi guys. Hope you are well. I would like to make an announcement that this blog that I'm writing today is not written on my family computer it is actually written on my laptop. Yes I got an early birthday present. I'm so happy this laptop has opened up so many more opportunities. I will be blogging more and setting up a youtube channel. Yay. so now unto the blog.

I don't think you know that I'm part of a worldwide program/charity called Plant for the Planet. I have been a part of Plant for the Planet for a year and have done a lot. The first step is becoming an ambassador, which I am. I have led to academies one in which in London in front of 80 odd children. I have done a presentation in front of our mayor and council members and have received a reward as well. I have probably planted over 300 trees and definately got muddy along the way.

But what is Plant for the Planet. It is a program which wants to get kids involved as the adults aren't doing anything apart from talking. A boy in Germany called Felix was doing research and wanted to make a difference. He told his teacher and they started it. From then on he has spoken to 100 of world leaders and it is now in every continent. What we want is to decrease the carbon dioxide emission down and make the world people produce the same amount at the moment it isn't. Trees help us do it as they take in the carbon dioxide. We also have a chocolate which is called the Change chocolate it was made without using any co2 and it is fair-trade at the moment it isn't being sold in Europe.

This is a basic sum up of Plant for the Planet. Not everyone will like it but I wanted to let you know about it.

Hockey Tournament at Brockenhurst

Today I traveled up to Brockenhurst. Yeah I'm a chic with a stick ! Yeah I've been playing hockey since I was probably 5 maybe 4. My parents play and they have influenced me to take it up. I love doing it. It gets me going on a Saturday and really do recommend hockey if you are looking at joining a sport club. It is great for exercise. So if you are interested than take it and do it.

We started at 10:30 but are match wasn't the first. It was fun. We started of well. Our first match we drew 1-1 which was a good score. We had to wait for ages until are matches though. At least we had sweets and chocolate. The only bad thing about the day is that it was freezing. Bad. We played are second match which sadly we lost 4-0 but they were a very good team with more experience players. We only got to play 3 matches and sadly again we lost the last match. So we didn't win anything but it was fun and I had a good time.

I'm now in my onsie. I will be watching YouTube videos after this blog and then good old Sunday roast. Yum !

P.S Join a hockey club, you'll love it !

Why I started blogging

Hey hope you week has went well and you've learnt something. HAPPY FRIDAY !!!!!! Luckily for me this week has went quickly for me it has as well. but I'm so glad the weekend her, YAY. This is blog is all about why I started blogging. Hope you enjoy. Please read to the end as I'm holding a special thing at the end.

The reason I started blogging is because I saw Zoella book at school and I fell in love with it. I started of just reading it and then starting watching her YouTube videos. She is my inspirations which got me to start blogging. I then found Tanya burr and other blogger and vloggers and that's when I wanted to give it ago myself . I asked my parents and they were all up for it. I was so excited and over joyed. I was already loving journaling and wanted to express my feelings, thoughts and tips out to the nation. At first I didn't know what to blog about and thought my blog was rubbish. After a while of writing blogs I thought it was getting anywhere and know one was looking. I went to Google for advice. Then they told me about BlogLovin and set up an account on there that has helped me massively. I now have over 225 page views which makes me happy that at least people are looking and 5 followers on my blog. It may not seem a lot but to me it's like the world. All I want from my blog is to get more and more followers like Zoella and Tanya Burr. I hope my YouTube channel will help and that I start having lots of people watching and reading. If the type of things that i'm writing you don't enjoy then comment and give me advice or ideas. This is why I started blogging. :)

To anyone out there who is considering thinking about starting a blog then do it. It is great just letting what you think out. You may not think that anyone is watching but it will take a while it did take Zoella 3 and a half  years to get where she is. Don't hive up and try to blog as much as possible and believe in yourself. You will get some mean comments along the way ignore them and carry on strong because I can promise you there are people out there like you and have the same personality as you. Remember to smile and BLOG BLOG BLOG !!!!

So this is why I started blogging. I hope I've encourage people out there to start blogging, it's great. now the special surprise thing.
Comment on this blog a question you want to ask me and I will answer on a blog on the 1st of April. On a blog all about your question. So get thinking and comment or email me.

Have a good weekend. Again HAPPY FRIDAY
