I’ve got a nose piercing!

As you could of read by the title I have indeed gotten a nose piercing. I now think it’s acceptable of me to listen to the Arctic Monkeys and to Florence and the Machines all day long.

“Oh my God! Emmalyn! You’re so edgy” No one has told me this yet but I’m still waiting for that compliment.

Why have I made this crucial decision which will no doubt change the entire course of my life?

Firstly I can look cool without making an effort which for me is everything! I can not wash in the morning and people will assume I’m a grunge.

“But Emmalyn… piercings don’t make you cool”

Stop judging me random person in my head which I like to argue with. (I’m not crazy, I promise)

Secondly it gives me an incredible confident boost because I feel like a different person like a cool version of Emmalyn. As I’m going to a different school for Sixth form it gives me a fresh start to a more confident and chatty Emmalyn which I know it seems totally weird and maybe I’ll go back to my normal shy self. I guess I’m faking it till I make it.

Thirdly I’m in love with people who have ring piercings but I learnt that my piercing has to heal before I can put a ring in and that’s at Christmas. ūüė¶ Oh well It will be worth the wait hopefully.

By the way the pain was worse than expected but worth it.

It feels like I have dried snot constantly in my nose which is very annoying.

The weird thing is I thought that I would look completely different with my new piercing but unfortunately I don’t, I look the same, I was oddly disappointed, not that anything is wrong with my appearance. Haha I don’t know why I thought my whole face would be transformed.

I’m not sure if I’ll get any other piercings, I think I’m content with what I have because piercings are expensive and I always lose my jewellery.

I’m leaving you with a picture of my piercing, it’s quite small which I really like:

Let me know if you have any piercings and what’s you opinion on them?

Have a good day. ‚ėļ

Failure.

Failure a word so hard to hear, so hard to say, so heavy to feel as if an anchor was weighing you down at the bottom of the ocean.

I never really meant to fail, I promise. It was nobody’s fault but mine really. I admit it. I could of done better, should have done better.

The day before it didn’t seem so important. Maybe my trembling fingers took over me.

I just ripped my heart out with my own hands.

My voice was too quiet. My mind too loud. I was out of control. Could this still be used as an excuse to push away the responsibility?

I feel like I’ve betrayed you. I feel embarrassed. I want to go so that you won’t look at me in shame. I heard you sigh with disappointment. You are not the only one and you will not be the only one either. I don’t know if I can bare hearing those sighs over and over.

How can you fail something you love?

“I’m sure you didn’t fail” “Oh but you’re so good at it” . “You’ve tried your best”

Stop!

Maybe I just don’t care enough.

Sorry if some aspects of this post don’t make any sense to you but they make sense to me and I just needed to vent. I failed my piano exam.

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!

Cast_20171022_14638_PA220971 (2).jpgOTTD:

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

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! 

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?

Summer favourites

Hi! How’s it going?

I really can’t be bothered for an intro. You read the title so you know what this post is about. Enjoy! (I just made an intro)

Rimmel London lipsticks: These lipsticks are so cute! I love their colour! They are really pigmented which is great! However they don’t stay on for that long time, but I don’t really care.Cast_20170901_14380_P9010668.JPG

Wonder by¬†Rachel Palacio : This book is so amazing and heart warming and sad. It’s also a really easy read. I read it in 3 sittings! I¬†heard that the film was going to come out soon, so I had to get my hands on it.

Wonder_Cover_ArtLes miserable: I was meant to watch this film for years but I couldn’t find it until I got Netflix YAY!! It’s amazing, I cried a LOT. The next day I listened to the playlist on Spotify, it was the highlight of my day.

The box: This is a horror movie with Cameron Diaz, there are no jump scares or anything it’s just a bit disturbing. I’m not so keen on all those religious horror movies with jump scares. This film has a great story! It’s also in the sci-fi range! I just loved it! I definitely recommend, this is a great movie for those who do not usually like horror movies.

Selena Gomez-Bad liar: ARRRGH I’ve listened to this song so much that I know it by heart. I’m usually not so keen on Selena so she did good. Plus the music video is the best one I’ve ever seen!selean.png

Strawberry and Raspberry ice tea: This tea was supposed to be a warm tea but I¬†absolutely hated it! so I made it into Ice tea instead and it’s so much better!¬†I love having it on those really warm summer days! I once tried it with lemonade, it was great.

Banana bread: Holy Moly Joe Lee! I love this so so much! It’s the best that I’ve ever made!I’m happy to have banana bread as my birthday cake! Thanks Mary Berry!

Cast_20170902_14382_P9020670.JPG

Yes… I don’t have a loaf tin so I used this thing instead. And yep I went outside to take a photo because I was so proud. I was like a proud mom who had just given birth. I couldn’t stop admiring it after that! Haha I’m so lame. I just need banana bread to make me happy.

Yep those were it. What were your favourites this Summer? How was your Summer?

Bye bye! Don’t miss Summer to much!
