Pumpkin patch!+OOTD

As you can read from the title  I went to a Pumpkin patch! I was actually super excited because I’ve never been to one before!

I was drastically overdressed for the occasion though; in the morning I decided to wear my new dress which I’m in love with for fun as I thought we weren’t going anywhere and I wore quite a lot of makeup too. Please tell me I’m not the only one that does this! haha!

I got my dress for ¬£15 in TK maxx. It’s a lovely dark green shade, I’m obsessed with dark green at the moment!

You can’t really see my shoes but I got lace-up boots by ASOS.

And I got hoop earrings from accessorize.

(Hahaha I just realized there’s a little kid hiding behind me, I didn’t notice until writing this post)

 

When we first got there I was so excited, my eyes were watering; I was about to cry. I’m not joking. I just felt so overwhelmed seeing so many pumpkins in one place. It was like pumpkin heaven. If I happen to go to heaven I want a huge pumpkin field which I can have very long walks through. I just remembered why I was so emotional: It was the day before my period.

Cast_20171022_14617_PA220946.JPGI mean look at this beauty isn’t it beautiful? Pumpkins everywhere!

It was a great day, we picked one massive pumpkin, two medium ones and 3 tiny ones for decoration.

We haven’t carved them yet because I’m looking for good recipes to do and also because we don’t have any cinnamon at the moment. I think I’m going to end up doing cupcakes and soup.

After we picked up our pumpkins, we went to get hot cinnamon doughnuts which were amazing, they tasted so much like autumn and Christmas. It made me feel so damn festive indeed.

We were going to go to the Maize maze but it was really expensive for all of my family so we didn’t go instead we took loads of photos in front of it which wasn’t to bad as it was really windy and cold we didn’t want to stay for to long, plus we wanted to watch a film and have a hot chocolate at home.

Have you done anything autumnal lately?

Have a nice rest of your day.

Oh and Stranger things is coming out today and I’m so excited!!! ūüėĀ

Original vs New (films)

At the moment there are loads of film being remade, and it’s kind of getting annoying even¬†though¬†some are great I just¬†wished they stopped and came up¬†with new ideas.¬†Anyway I picked 3 film remakes to ramble on about.

Cinderella:

cendrillon

I used to love Cinderella when I was a little girl. I even¬†used to have this Cinderella costume, it was amazing. When I heard there was going to be a remake of Cinderella¬†I was happy but sceptical about it. Turns out that I really enjoyed it! I thought Lily James was a perfect match! I love how they made Cinderella’s story seem really sad. I love the darkish colours they used. Even though it’s the same story, it looked really different which I loved.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:

charleandchocolate (2)

I know that a lot of people grew up with the older Charlie and the chocolate factory so they prefer it because of sentimental reasons. I saw the newer one 1st then read the book and I thought the book was really similar to the film. Then the film became my favourite film and still is one of my favs to this day. When I watched the old one I thought It was nothing like the book, they were weird bits which wasn’t need and that I absolutely hated!

Beauty and the Beast:

beautyandbeast (2)

A week before the new Beauty and the Beast was going to come out! I urged myself to watch the old¬†film as I had never seen it before and I loved it. I was listening to the beauty and the beast playlist for weeks. I’m pretty sure I know all the songs by heart. When I saw the new one I was extremely disappointed (as you could have read in my unpopular opinions post) I thought the film was a bit like a person that was auditioning for the¬†X factor with a really famous song with no twist so it lead to it¬†being boring. You know what I mean? I think some films are meant to stay animated and untouched.

There you have it! What are your opinions on remakes?

Photographing Decay

I’ve always enjoyed photographing decay, I find the results of the photos tend to be quite mysterious and intriguing for some reason. I also find that it’s one of the easiest photos to take and edit especially when I was a beginner.

I prefer them in black and white, I either take them with the monochrome setting on or I just put a black and white filter over the photo.

IMG_20170825_173136_026.jpg

I think I took this one with a VSCO filter.

Screenshot_2017-08-26-18-15-32-1[2].png

This photo I took in my early years of photography, I was extremely proud of it! Now looking back at it I’m not so keen about the editing.

I tried to take one with colours instead of B&W.  This one is my least favourite I think, although I do like the way I edited it, I just think it’s a bit boring.

Cast_20171007_14508_PA070802.JPG

I’m actually really proud of this one which I took yesterday. I used the B&W setting on my camera, which I love.

Which one was your favourite? Do you have any tips? What do you like taking photos of at the moment?

By the way I’m at the dentist while you’re reading this post. And I hope your day hasn’t been too unlucky! 

How do I manage my time.

Hey guys!

So I have to say I think I’m the best person I know at managing time. Loads of people complain about how they find it soo difficult but I just ace it! Well, because I’m such a wise woman, I’m going to share loads of tips with you! ūüėĀ

My number one tip would be to watch a lot of youtube because that doesn’t take much of your time at all. I personaly think that there is loads of content that you¬†can watch purposely.

I always have to remind myself that I have loads of time on my hands,. So yeah don’t worry about a thing.

If you feel stressed about time. Just stop everything that you’re doing and do it tomorrow.

Procrastinating is okay, I feel like there is so much pressure out there in the media about doing everything in one day and one time . Well I think procrastinating should be embraced! It is not wrong to procrastinate. It’s nature and innate.

A great thing which I do when I get back home from school is just relax at home and then wake up incredibly early to finish all my work. This tip never failed me! Plus it gives you an excuse to sleep when you get home from school/work! Go to bed early wake up early.

Songwriting

Lately I’ve been doing some song writing.

“Oooooh Laixica you must be a good singer then!”

Wrong!

“Ooooooh I bet you write loads of poetry and is great at writing!”

Wrong Again!

*Very long sigh*

To be honest I don’t know where this hobby has come from. Or why I am wasting my time practising singing my childish songs in my bedroom with my bad singing voice. Who knows maybe I’ll be the next Sia. By the way did you know that Sia wrote “Chandelier” in 45minutes! Crazy I know!

Song Writing is so hard! I’ve accumulated loads of song writing problems:

Problem Number 1: I can never find a good Chorus! Only intros, my song-writing notebook is full of intros.

Problem Number 2: I start writing a song take a break, comeback, find song completely embarrassing, rip page out of notebook, throws in bin, eventually throw up.

Problem Number 3: Every song I start creating turns into a dramatic theatre love song where there is more than one character. To be honest I should just write a musical.

Problen Mumber 4: I only know 4 piano chords

If you can easily song write, well you are a very lucky human/alien. I think you should send me your talent in exchange for my talent of making perfect nutella pancakes.

 I’ve also realised that my rhymes are extremely cringy. Basically at the moment I’m really bad at songwriting hahaha.

Anyway yeah I don’t know what this post was for I’ll probably delete it at some point. I haven’t proofread it so sorry for any mistakes.

If I ever do get better I’ll let you know and post a covet!  Hahaha I’m joking that will never happen.

Bye

My unpopular opinions

Hi Guys!

Yes.. Today I’m going to talk about my unpopular opinions.

I apologise in Advance if I offend anyone because there is a big chance that you’ll probably hate me after this. #Sorrynotsorry

I hate Ed Sheeran . Don’t kill me. I think he’s so overrated. Each time I reveal to someone this dark secret they can’t believe their ears, they just stare at me for a good minute and then they come out with all the reasons why I should like him; “He does every genre of music!” “He’s so talented” “His songs are so meaningful”.¬†This situation becomes quickly awkward and embarrassing. The sort of moment where I wish I never told them that.

I didn’t like the new beauty and the beast even though I absolutely love Emma Watson, I didn’t think she was the right person for the role. I love the old one though!

I hate Riverdale with a passion. I hate the characters. I hate the way it was filmed. I hate all the useless moments. I could give you a long list with everything wrong with riverdale.

I love gremlins!¬†A lot of people I know hate that movie. They find it terrifying. I have to say when I was younger I was traumatised by it, but now that I’ve seen it again I love it.

grem.png

I love flossing my teeth. It’s just sooo therapeutic!¬†Finding leftovers in¬†between your teeth while saliva is running down your shirt. *sigh* What good memories.¬†The dentist never¬†has to remind me to do it because I think I might be doing it a bit to often.

I hate the little prince. I used to have nightmares about him. The way his eyes had no pupils terrified me. It was like he had no soul! I remember I dreamt that he had transformed into fire and he was chasing me around my school. When my dad starting reading me the book, I started crying haha.

Please don’t unfollow me! Let me know your unpopular opinions!

Why it is worth buying a micro lens.

Hi guys!

About a year ago I bought a micro lens! Why? because I wanted to experiment, I got bored about the pictures I was taking ( I always go through a “this hobby bores me phase”) Was it the right choice? Yes! I love taking micro pictures! All I have to do is go out¬†in my garden and find small things to take photos of! It’s great especially if you’re super lazy like me! I remember when I first got my lens I was obsessed!¬†¬†However it can be really hard to focus on things especially if it’s a windy day because you have to be very still! Another tip is that it’s easier to take them on a sunny day, it will focus more easily and look great!

Here are some photos I took with a micro lense:

I hope you enjoyed these! Snow is a great thing to take close ups of! Did I made want to buy one? Am I an inspiring role model? Am I amazing? Oh wait I already know the answer to that (yes).¬†I took loads of other micro photos¬†but I’m just to lazy to look through my unorganised computer. Which picture is your favourite? By the way butterflies look gross in close-up.

Oh I heard that they don’t only sell them for cameras but for I phones too!

Stress free quotes

I’ve been feeling a bit stressed recently, I’m not really sure why.

A lot of the time when I’m stressed I just proceed to do nothing aka watching YouTube aka procrastinate life. But when I don’t have a lot of time,¬†one thing I love doing while I’m stressed is to read loads of¬†anti stress quotes! I just feel so much better afterwards, they just cheer me up! I also read¬†motivating ones when I can’t be bothered to finish homework. haha They always help me out!

I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my favourite stress free quotes with you guys!

So without further a due ( I sound like an American YouTuber)¬†let’s¬†get on with the video post!

“Don’t stress.¬†Do your best. Forget the rest.”

“Take a deep breath its just a bad day not a bad life.”

“Worrying means you suffer twice”

 

“We must have a cake. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a cake.”

 

“Exhale the bullshit”

 

“Feelings are just visitors. Let them come and go.”

 

I love all of these quotes so much! The last one must be my favourite one though, I just relate to it so much! Some day I can feel like a slimy banana in a trash can and other days I can feel like I happy fruit salad!

Oh by the way, I watched some “Good mythical morning” on YouTube the other day and they did¬†a video about how talking to yourself in 3rd person calms you down. This is so true! When I get really¬†stressed I have to give myself pep talks. haha

Which one is your favourite? What do you do when you feel a bit stressed?
