Revision Tips

Hey Internet Friends,
For me, exams have already begun so I thought I'd share with you some of my top tips for revision.

1) Writing and rewriting your notes.
This is a personal favourite of mine as I find this the most effective way of learning things. It's so simple and quickly helps you remember vital information.

2) Posters
Creating posters to stick around your home can also be very useful, particularly if it's equations and/or diagrams you need to memorise. These are also slightly more creative and fun to make.

3) Flash Cards
Now, I personally don't often use flash cards, however I have a load of friends who do. Easy enough to make and effective if they're right for you.

4) Other methods
Some other methods you could use are:
Creating PowerPoints
Completing past papers
Quizzing yourself with friends and family

I hope this helps some of you.

Love and Hugs,

Thoughtful Thursday - Animal Testing

Hey Internet Friends,
Today's topic for Thoughtful Thursday is animal testing. Just a quick note before I begin, no images will be used on this post as I can understand how upsetting and disturbing they can be.

First of all, I agree with testing on animals for medical research if there is no alternative option available. Ground breaking results in the medical world can come from testing on animals and save so many lives.

On the other hand however, I am against testing cosmetics on animals. So many brands manage to make safe products without testing on animals so why should others still be allowed to test? As much as I love cosmetics they are not an essential thing for survival. I always try to check my products haven't been tested on animals as it's cruel, wrong and unnecessary.

I'd love to hear what your opinions are about animal testing and whether you try to avoid products that have been tested on animals.

Love and Hugs,

Top Tips - How to Prepare for Exams

Hey Internet Friends,
Most of you (I'm guessing) will have exams approaching like me, so here are my top tips on how to prepare for exams.

First of all, create a revision timetable. Make sure it's realistic so you stick to it. Leave plenty of time for breaks as it's impossible to learn everything in huge chunks.

Secondly, make sure you sleep well. Be active during the day and go to bed when you're tired. Try not to stay up too late as you need plenty of rest.

My third tip is to keep hydrated when revising. You won't be able to concentrate properly if you're becoming dehydrated.

Finally, spend breaks doing things you love and treat yourself after exams.

Good Luck!

Thoughtful Thursday - The Internet

Hey Internet Friends,
So, it's Thoughtful Thursday again and this time it's about the internet.

Ok, call me a typical teen but I love the internet. It's so nice to be able to find out whatever I want with just a couple of clicks. People may say we rely too heavily on the internet but think about how much knowledge we can gain from it; it's amazing. Also, without the internet, we wouldn't have social media and so wouldn't be able to run blogs or YouTube channels. Imagine that, no YouTube! The internet is also brilliant for discovering so many new things. It helps gives us a quick and easy way to research different symptoms if you're ill which helps if it's a while before you can go and see a doctor. The final thing I love about the internet is that you can go online shopping! I love browsing through my favourite stores online, especially when I'm planning a shopping trip with my besties!

Sorry that this isn't particularly long but at least it's better than nothing. I will be starting my exams very soon and so am trying to prepare a whole load of posts that I can schedule for you guys. Hopefully I'll be able to stick to my posting schedule as I have currently all year (GO ME!!) which doesn't happen often.

Love and Hugs,
