The Chronicle

Someday Summary?


- I'm back with another 'Chronicle' post. For those of you who haven't seen this kind of post before, it is basically a reoccurring feature of my blog that isn't necessarily 100% beauty or fashion related, whereby you can get to know me a little better through things I'm thinking about, wishing for and such. Sometimes it includes pictures of my week and pictures that inspire me and answers to questions I have been asked via twitter or on YouTube etc etc. :)  

I know that it has been a long time since I last posted a 'chronicle' so I hope you enjoy seeing this little feature making a return.


001 I can't believe that it is November already! My favorite month ever! Why? Because it is my month of birth? Well... not entirely I love bonfire night eating yummy toffee apples and the smell of smoke in the air on a crisp, cold night. And I absolutely love the lead up to Christmas too. My Stanford Blach and I have our tradition whereby as soon as the Christmas lights are turned on we visit Costa every Thursday for large hot chocolates with  marshmallows and chocolate christmas tree dippers THE FULL WORKS. We like to sit all snuggled up in our winter coats watching everybody hurry around the Christmas market. I love it. My dad and I also start making our Christmas cakes ready for testing on Christmas eve! Some say that I chose a tricky time to be born, but I love it! I think this is the BEST time of year.
First and for-most though, I am super excited about my birthday! I am having quite the celebration, SEX AND THE CITY STYLE. Yes that's right I am having the ultimate Sex and The City themed party. I don't want to say too much now as I actually want to do some vlogging that night but it is going to be one glamourous affair. I bought my dress from Lipsy a few weeks ago. It's not my usual style but I was persuaded by it's gorgeous purple, jewel tone colour, soft flowing chiffon, sparkly rhinestones and it's cut away back.
I cannot WAIT to wear it. My shoes match also..those I will show you they are from Next. :) 

I won't be wearing the sparkly stiletto's all night though as we are planning to head out in Leeds afterwards. 
So I am swapping them for a more comfy platform ready to dance the night away! Over the coming weeks I will be having my hair re coloured, a SU-do tan (if anybody has tried that kind of airbrush tan PLEAAAAAAASE let me know what you think) my eyebrows re-sculpted by HD brows and my gel nails popped back on...if that isn't enough to cheer me up I don't know what is!

002. Aside from this future excitement the past couple of weeks have been so crappy it's unreal. I know there are a lot of you in the same boat as me and some of you are interested in my future plans however what I don't know is what has overcome me alate. Finding that crucial and desperately needed motivation to get up on a morning and drag myself into college to work has been so, so hard. Both myself and my friend Chloe have said that the pressure has been upped considerable amounts this year and my hugs go out to anybody else who is in their last year of A Level. You guys already know how seriously desperate I am to pop off to university to study Journalism. I just want to be a journalist. It just feels so depressing when you have an essay pushed infant of you, with a big fat D slapped on it. This month I have sent off my UCAS form to Sheffield University, Sunderland, Northumbria, Nottingham Trent and Leeds. I am just in the waiting game now to see if I get any offers. I am absolutely petrified I won't and I think this is why this year I'm on the edge of a mental breakdown. I need to bag myself outstanding grades to set me apart from the rest. But I know me, and I know I am not naturally intelligent, I need to work super, super hard to achieve those vital AAA grades - However, with this sheer lack of motivation I feel this goal is a million miles away! Not only this but I had an incident with scraping and making a bit of a mess of not only my car but somebody else's today which has been the icing on top of a very mouldy cake! Eek! [ I know he will never read this] but a huge thankyou to my dad for not shouting and me today after my driving incident. Calling your dad up to say you've had a bash is never a good call to make! Love you Dad!

Oh, and I wish for my skin to clear up! :-( These stressy times have caused havoc with my face! Eek! 
Sooo i'm spending the night watching SATC again, yes again and drinking tea. All I want to do is just chill out on my own and forget about all the bleurgh! Who needs hassle ey! With all this stress I can't wait to go out and party EVEN MORE!

Love, Holl x
