Things I am tired of hearing about Long Distance Relationships

Image
Hey !
If you have read my A-Z of me blog post then you will know that I have been in a long distance relationship for 3 years. Being in a long distance relationship is one of the difficult things in my life at the moment but I fight through it since I know that in a few years it will be worth it. However, people around me love being negative about long distance relationships. So without further ado, I present to you Things that I am tired of hearing about being in a long distance relationship.


"You are basically single 85% of the year."
I don't think people realize that being in a relationship isn’t all about being in physical contact with them. Having that lack of physical contact makes us more open to talk about our feelings and conflicts.

"How do you know that he isn't cheating on you?"
I hate this one so much because people could be living together and they could be cheating on each other. The truth is I don't know if he's cheating on me but I tr…

Scents in my air.

Image
Hey ! As you know, with different seasons you would want a fitting scent in your room.  Over the past few months, I have been trying out different candles and wax melts, and I loved them all so much that I am going to talk about them now.

Pink Grapefruit Wax Melt. UNICORN KING HAS PROVIDED ME WITH THE YUMMY FRUIT SCENT THAT I SHALL USE EVERY SUMMER. Yes, I said Unicorn King. No, you cannot comment saying "There is no such thing as a Unicorn King." This beautiful wax melt smells delicious. It smells yummy. Yes, I know that they mean the same thing. Please don't point it out. It's just a really good scent and it reminds me of summer. Like, you know in the summer everyone is drinking Slushies, or whatever they call them wherever you're from, and they smell really fruity? That is what this smells like, which I guess makes sense since Grapefruit is a fruit....I am not doing well with this review. Let's start this again.
*deep breath* This wax melt is the perfect s…

Ever miss your self?

Image
Hey!
I am sure that many of you relate when I say that I spend an enormous amount of time on Pinterest, and on one fine night I came across this quote *look at photo below* and it got me thinking about my first relationship and what I was like before….

The truth is I don't miss how I was before we broke up. I had the most cliché idea about relationships that I got from films and books, and I needed the kick of our breakup to make me realize that relationships are nothing like that. I mean, I knew they weren't like that but I still acted with that mentality.
Another thing that was a good result of my relationship was the fact that I fought my Trichotillomania harder than I ever did before because the guy I was with hated my short hair. So for some reason, it was easier to fight the urges after the break-up. It made me want to make him see what he missed out on. I feel so much more confident now that I have successfully managed to grow my hair out nicely since our breakup.

2017 Summer Beauty Essentials

Image
Hey !
This summer has been a mess. Trying to juggle work with a social life when I mostly work evenings has been a total nightmare. However, Between the late hours at work, long hours of sleep, and minimal energy to do anything productive, I have ended up having a few staples in the beauty department.


Boots Body Spray.
These yummy scented body sprays have helped me so much in this heat. Just one (or a few) quick spritz and that nasty subtle smell of sweat is gone. POOF ! I have these in 3 scents : Vanilla, Mango, and Strawberry (listed in order of preference). I discovered these beauties back in May when I was in London, and when I went back to London in July I bought a few more. My friends had also asked me to buy some for them as they have ended up using mine when they are around.


Soap and Glory Dry Shampoo.
I have never relied so much on a product. With temperatures soaring up to 40 degrees Celsius, the oils from my hair have just been pouring out. And quite frankly, I don't ha…

Death's that I can't get over : Book version.

Image
Hey !
If you remember, I had posted a blog about Deaths that I can't get over: TV Show version. Since then I have been thinking , when a book fictional character dies, for some reason, it hurts more than when you watch it on screen. And in honour of that pain, I have written Deaths that I can't get over : Book version.



WARNING : SPOILERS AHEAD. * * *

Fred Weasley (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)
This is the most recent death that I have witnessed, and yet I know that this death will haunt me for the rest of my life. Fred Weasley was a good humoured man with great ambition to make the world a less serious place. Even at times of grave danger he and his brother attempted to cause a smile. AND BELLATRIX WILL FOREVER BE MY ENEMY FOR TAKING HIM AWAY FROM ME ! It was the most heartbreaking death in all of the series !



Augustus Waters (The Fault in our Stars)
It has been a few years since I've read the book AND I STILL CRY THINKING ABOUT IT. Me and Augustus share the fear of obl…

Review : Dinki Belle Nail Wraps

Image
Hey !
As a girl one of my biggest problems is chipped nail polish hours after applying it. So I normally have chipped nail polish any time I have nail polish. This little problem is why I decided to purchase 2 sets of Dinki Belle Nail Wraps. Nail Wraps are basically stickers that make your nails look fabulous.

As I mentioned before I got 2 sets : Blue Haze , and Candy Girl.
These products come in a small package that easily fits through your letterbox (wherever you may live because DinkiBelle ship internatationally). In my package there were 20 nail wraps in 10 different sizes, so I can rock out each design twice !

They are quite easily to apply as you literally simply have to apply the nail wrap to your finger, then smoothing out the wrinkles and file off any excess.  Obviously there are a few more tiny steps which are written on the back of the package.
These nail wraps are waterproof as soon as you apply them. SO you can shower and go swimming without worrying that they'll com…

Things that I regret now.

Image
Hey !
Let's start by stating the obvious : We are humans and we make mistakes. Some mistakes we forgive ourselves for and learn from them, others we'd wish we could go back in time to change what we did. Today I am going to mention three things that I regret that I wish I could change.


French At Secondary School we were given the option to choose between Italian, French, Spanish and German to be the foreign language we learn. I chose French because all the other kids in my class in Year 6 did so I did the same hoping that I'd end up in a class with them when we started the new school ( I didn't) I don't regret choosing French (duhh) because it is a beautiful language. What I do regret is not paying that much attention in class, besides the Culture (I loved French Culture), and I regret not taking my assignments more seriously.
Top Tip : If you're trying to learn a new language, don't use a translator when doing an essay because you will learn nothing. :)
