At the edge of the world, the furthest point to go
How would you get there? Walk, run, row?
When you arrive, what will you see?
Swirling, whirling clouds of space and me
I’ll wait for you there, right on the edge
Leaning over threatening to jump off the ledge
Until I see you, come to rescue me
together forever, this is how we are meant to be.
In your arms, we would watch the sun set
Entwined together, like when we first met
Once again you’d pull me back from the brink
You’re my savior, my missing link
And we would sit there curled
together, at the edge of the world.
Okay so I lied, I didn’t do a post over the weekend but there is a good reason for that! Firstly I’ve been really busy getting everything ready for my Photography deadline which you’ll be pleased to know is Monday! And secondly I now have picked a rather nasty stomach bug of some sort which feels like someone has stabbed me in the stomach repeatedly, so I am sat here writing, hunched over, in my dressing gown, probably looking like a total twit but I really want to do this post!
Anyway onto the main post! Today I thought I’d do a bit of a fun post, you seemed to enjoy my beauty favourites (I plan to do another of those in Feb sometime!) so I thought I’d do a similar sort of thing and show and tell you about interesting things in my bedroom. I’ve tried to keep anything I’ve mentioned in earlier blog posts out just to keep it fresh, also there’s no CD’s or makeup/ beauty stuff simply because I want to do that in a separate post. This are just things I like in my room! So let’s get started!
First up is this!
So I got this for my 18th birthday last September by a very good friend who knows only too well just how much I adore Doctor Who, yes I am little obsessed! I can not wait for the new series with Peter Capaldi! Ahh it’s gonna be good! (But that’s another blog post!) Anyhow, I really love this mug and even though I’m not really a hot drink drinker I’ve found a place for it in my room. It usually stores some of my many pens and pencils on my desk!
Next up we have!….
I went through a period of being obsessed with art work and photography in or about New York and I still do to a certain extent. I’ve always loved New York, and after going there with my school for the first time in 2011 it just made me love it more! We went to all the art galleries and did a whole lot of site seeing which was simply amazing, it is my dream to return one day and share the experience with my family as they haven’t been yet. I love this image, its like a photograph collage including the statue of Liberty, the classic yellow taxi and road signs and streets all behind glass giving it a beautiful shiny finish. I just love it! I have another photograph from New York in my room, but this one is my fav!
I’ve had this in my room a loooonnnnggggg time. I’m not sure exactly how old he is in this photo but he must be under a year old. I look so young too! He used to lie on my stomach like that and snuggle into my neck, ah I love him so much! For those of you who don’t know I have a dog (obviously) and his name is Rudie and he’s a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and he’s adorable! I don’t know what I’d do without him. He’s five now, six this June which is scary to think we’ve had him that long! But yes, so this picture will be staying in my room for a very long time to come!
Although some these little stones have somewhat pride of place on my desk. There a lovely little pick me up and just nice to hold. The little owl one saying ‘You’re a Hoot!’ was given to me in my stocking at Christmas and the ‘Hope’ one I’ve had for quite a while, but I think I bought it at one the many craft fairs I love going too!
So I have a lot of shoes and these are not all of them! I have more Doc Martins and other pumps that aren’t in my room, again that’s another blog post! But here are just a small selection of my wonderful shoes! Going from front to back, firstly I have a pair of the shoe Doc Martin’s in patent leather white. I really love this and find they look great with tights and dresses/skirts or ankle grazer jeans with little socks. Then I have some little heeled boots in a sort of caramel colour. I think they were from New Look a while ago. Then there’s a pair of slightly more expensive boot, with a bit more of a heel, they’ve got a lush furry collar with multicoloured fabric round the back. I then have a pair of Doc Martin boots in a brown leather that lace up at the front with a small heel. Finally there’s my pink patent leather Doc Martins! As I said I have many others and plan to do a full blog post on my shoes in the near future!
Whats next you cry?
This is my ever growing wall of stuff! There’s everything up there from bands I like, for example, The Vamps, Ed Sheeran, Little Mix. There’s post cards from friends and photos I’ve taken on holiday or for photography at college. There’s also my Christmas card from my parents and images of my FAVOURITE actors like the beautiful Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne, including my hand written picture from him!!!! CHECK IT OUT!!
Yes the day that arrived I quite literally lost it 😉 It says, ‘Lucy, thank you for your kind letter, best wishes Eddie.’ Oh man, I still can’t believe it 😀
*Okay calm Lucy, calm….*
Right, moving on!
On a much more serious note, this is an exceptionally important piece in my room. This mushroom was made by a very well known and pretty famous I would say glass maker, but that’s not what makes it special. My granny decided to have her husbands, my granddads ashes put into a piece of glass for each one of her children and grandchildren and I decided to have a mushroom. It’s a very special piece obviously and means a lot to me, its nice to have something to remember him by and to always know that he’s there.
Okay, nearing the end now…
This is the lid from a another birthday present as it happens! This one is a little silver plated box engraved with the above caption. I love it as it’s really personal and special to me. I’ve found great use for it, storing all my kirby grips and slides that usually just get eaten up by the floor or something…. So thank you Emma! I really love it and it’s being used well! 😀
This ones just another fun one really. I do really love things like this though. It’s an apple made out of fabric, checked type fabric for the apple itself and then like green felt for the leaves and a real twig (I think!) for the stem! I just think it’s really cute!
I don’t honestly remember where this came from, but it’s very likely my mum got it for me. It’s a mother and daughter figurine that fit together, it’s got like a dappled effect over it and its very simplistic but I think it’s really sweet, it certainly reminds me just how close me and my mum are and its a lovely reminder that she’ll always be there for me 🙂 I love it dearly.
Finally! (cue the chorus of *thank god* 😉 )
This is my watch! I wear this one everyday now, but it used to be my ‘expensive one, for special occasions’ however the battery on my everyday one decided to stop and I’ve just not got round to getting another one for it yet so I’ve been using this one. I really like this watch, it’s got a nice weight to it and its just feminine enough with being too girly. However one thing I have noticed about it is that if I bring my hand up to brush my hair away from my face or whatever, my hair gets stuck in the strap bit and then as I pull my hand away it rips out my hair! Ouch! So I do have to be a little careful! But I love it nonetheless! ❤
And there we have it! The hopefully long awaited blog post! I hope you enjoyed having a peek around my room and taking a look at some of my favourite things! If nothing else this blog post has given me some brilliant ideas for my next post which is great because I’ve been suffering from the dreaded writers block a while! 😦 boo! But anyway, I hope you liked it and please do leave me a comment about what you thought, feedback is much appreciated!
So it’s the sacred day! It’s FRIDAYYYYYY! And it could not come soon enough, today has been hellish!
Anyway I don’t have many plans for the weekend, just going to chill and probably do some college work as usual. But one big thing I want to do is write a really good blog post. Rather write a rushed one now when I’m tired and not sure what to write, I’m going to do it over the weekend so stay tuned! I may even do a vlog too! Again if you have any requests for me please leave them in the comments and make my day!!
Okay, so I recognise I haven’t been posting about how my 500 words a day has been going and that’s simply because it hasn’t really been going anywhere…
I’ve had a hundred deadlines recently at college especially with photography as it’s very time consuming getting together a final piece. However tonight I will try desperately to get back on track, but no promises! I hope though I will be able to keep up my blogging 🙂
I want this post to also be a opportunity for you to tell me what you would like me to blog about next, if you have a blog I will also shout you out at the end of the blog post 😀
Today has not been a good day. I’m feeling immensely tired and bogged down with all the stresses and deadlines of college and general life. Eighteen is not an easy age by anymeans that’s for sure!
However I don’t want to burden all you lovely blog readers with my dreary problems that I’m sure a lot of you share. So today I’m going to talk about positivity and finding the good, however small, in the bad. What makes you happy when your feeling just that little bit down. Just by writing this blog post is improving my mood, and that’s mainly why I decided to start a blog. Obviously its also because I love writing and sharing things with people who share my passions, but its also a bit of a release for me. I’m sure other bloggers will agree, it’s just lovely to get a like on your post or even better a positive comment. You know by being nice to someone it makes you feel good too.
So one thing for me that makes me feel good is writing a good blog post. I don’t think I’ve got it completely down yet, I don’t sit for hours and script it out, (I literally don’t have the time!) but I do put a lot of effort into it, and it’s fun! Another thing I really enjoy doing when I’m down is having a nice hot bath, with lots of beauty products in it! When I have a bath, I make an evening out of it! A good book is also a great pick me up, at the moment I’ve just started reading Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl which is obviously immensely powerful and a good reminder that however bad you feel, there’s always someone worse off than you.
Finally I really like just taking time and watching some good old fun Youtube videos! There’s plenty out there, something for everyone! I totally recommend some Youtube therapy!
Well, I certainly feel better now 🙂 I hope everyone out there has had a better day than I have but if you haven’t then use some of my tips to get yourself back on track! I’d love to hear some of your best ways to pick yourself up after a hard day!
So I have quite an obsession with organisation. Now on reflection of this statement I think it’s more the ‘feeling’ of being organised. I love have lots of notebooks and sticky notes to hand just to write a quick note to myself or a longer To Do list. I find these essential for general life and especially college life
Now on a recent trip into town with my friend we popped into Waterstones and wow! I haven’t been in there for a while but the amount of stationary and note pads was awesome! I have to admit I got quite excited!
I couldn’t decide between all the brilliant note pads and sticky notes I finally settled on the orange pad you can see in the picture above. It’s got six sections on it for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Next week, with little tick boxes on each line for you to tick off what you’ve done, which is always satisfying!
It was £5.99 which is quite steep for a pad of paper, but if you get as excited by this sort of thing as I do, it’s not the end of the world. It’s relatively thick as well so you wouldn’t have to go out and buy another anytime soon.
Anyways I would really recommend this company as they had some really funny ones as well that will make you chuckle! The company as far as I’m aware is called Knock Knock, this is whats on the back…
So yeah, I really like it and think it’s a bit different from just a plain note book or a stack of sticky notes. It would also be really useful for setting out a writing schedule, giving you set times to just sit down and write. Let me know what your favorite organisational tips are in the comments!
It’s been a few days, but today I have a blog post that hopefully many of you can relate to…
Teachers. Whether at school, college or university, there are some you love and some you loath. But why is that? What makes a good teacher? What do you like about the ones you love? What do you hate about the ones you loath?
I had the idea to do this post after a particularly hard day at college, with a few annoying teachers…
I can tell you what I think makes a good teacher:
Someone who has authority but doesn’t take advantage of that fact
Someone who understands their pupils
Someone who gives constructive criticism
And then there are the teachers who just don’t have any of these qualities…
Teachers that pick on you for answers, which just makes you panic and then you can’t think of the answer even if you know it. The teacher that instead of saying, ‘I can see where you’re coming from, but…’ or ‘not quite right…’ just says ‘No, that’s not right’ and then starts having a go at you about how you should know the answer because ‘I have taught it to you’.
Yes, teachers like that annoy me, which makes me not want to go to the lessons and makes me nervous when I’m in lessons, so I don’t learn anything anyway, don’t they get that?
Anyways, on a more positive note, I had some brilliant teachers at school that everyone loved, but they were still able to keep control of the class, I don’t know if its like personality factors or just the fact some people should not be teachers…
Well, let me know what you think on the whole good/bad teacher thing, what makes a good teacher? What makes a bad teacher?
