Tips For Going Back to School

Hey Internet Friends,
So the time has come when the summer holidays are almost over and it's nearly time to go back to school. But don't panic; I'm here with my top tips for going back to school.

One thing I find helps me with school is packing my bag the night before. I also get out my clothes and shoes the night before so I don't have to run around trying to find everything right before I need to leave. This way I can stay much more relaxed in the morning.

Another thing I find helps me is colour-coding my timetable and keeping a copy at home as well as at school. This way it's so much simpler to know what lessons you have at a quick glance.

I have a weekly plan that I fill in with what homework I need to do and when to ensure I don't miss deadlines and limit stress. This also helps me schedule days where I can relax or go out with friends.

Finally, I like to have these stationary items either at home or with me at school in my pencil case as they always come in handy:
  • Pens (Coloured as well as black and blue)
  • Pencils (Coloured and grey)
  • Highlighters
  • Ruler
  • Rubber
  • Pencil Sharpener
  • Sticky notes
  • Glue stick
  • Stapler
  • Hole punch
I hope that helps those of you preparing to go back to school.

Top 10 Films

Hey Internet Friends,
Today I thought I'd share with you my top 10 films. Now, this was very difficult to make such a short list as there are so many films I love (so this is just my top 10 at this moment in time). Feel free to suggest any films you may think I'll enjoy and let me know which ones of my choices you agree with.

At number 10 is Mean Girls. A classic girly movie that's so easy to watch time and time again and still enjoy. Perfect for watching alone or with friends at a sleepover.

My choice for number 9 only just tops Mean Girls and I had a difficult time deciding which I prefer. Clueless is another sleepover classic with tons of memorable quotes.

The Devil Wears Prada sneaks in at number 8. I fell in love with this film after my sister persuaded me to watch it. I adore Anne Hathaway which helps boost this film above the previous two.

How to Train Your Dragon is in 7th place for its simplicity to watch, making it suitable for everyone. Admittedly, Hiccup is a fairly attractive cartoon character, meaning this film is given extra points. Despite being a children's film it's so enjoyable which again helps it to appeal to everyone.

In 6th place is The Nightmare Before Christmas. I only recently watched this for the first time after hearing loads about it for years and it most certainly didn't disappoint. Perfect for everyone at all times of the year this will always be one of my favourite films.

Stardust comes in at number 6 with its typically happy fairytale theme. It's such a magical movie that never gets old and is brilliant to watch with the family.

Next with its catchy songs is The Little Mermaid. I adore the variety of accents and styles of songs this classic Disney film has making it one of my go-to films.

At number 3 is another Disney film. Tangled just tops The Little Mermaid due to its amazing story line and the amazingly powerful voice of Mother Gothel (and not to mention Flynn Rider - the hottest thief around).

At number 2 is Corpse Bride. The first time I watched this, admittedly the ending made me tear up. It's such a beautiful film done in an amazing gothic style thanks to the incredible Tim Burton.

And finally, my number one film; directed by Tim Burton and staring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson, is Batman. Now, I love Batman (there are a few films however that could make the 10 worst films list but lets forget those for now) and this is where my obsession started, meaning this film will always be loved by me. Jack Nicholson's characterisation of the joker is incredible and never fails to make me laugh.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Top Summer/Holiday Buys

Hey Internet Friends,
Today I thought I'd share with you some of my top things to buy during summer and/or on holiday.

If you're on holiday, maybe buy some memoirs to remind you of the amazing time you had. This could be something simple, like a pen or magnet, or even a mug. It's always nice to have something specific to a place that holds memories for you.

Summer quite often requires cooler clothing so I often buy floaty tops and skirts made from light fabric. I also tend to opt for lighter colours in order to really help me stay cool.

In summer I often find myself wearing much less makeup. For this reason I tend to mainly buy and wear moisturisers, especially ones that help you tan or give you a slight glow (always good if you don't naturally tan easily like me). I also like to buy brightly coloured nail polish to really help me get in the summer spirit.

What are your top holiday/summer buys? Let me know by commenting or contacting me through social media?
