You asked Me…

Heyyyy,

On my social media accounts, I wrote saying that I wanted questions for a Q & A and I received some questions! So now I’m going to do my job…Which is to answer them, here we go:

Q1 If you could step in the shoes of a celebrity for a day, who’s would you? (@littleblogofmakeup on Instagram)

This is a hard question because there’s so many things I’d like to experience. I’m thinking maybe someone like Zoe Sugg to find out more about Youtube as a career as it’s a very new thing, or maybe an olympic gymnast to see what it’s like to be that good!

Q2 Is blogging your hobby or profession? (@Geek_of_All on Twitter)

Right now, blogging is my hobby as I’m a student and therefore don’t really have time to have a profession! Also I don’t currently earn anything from blogging but I think it would be cool to one day!

Q3 What is your favourite series of all time and why? (@SavanaRae098 on Twitter)

I don’t really watch that much TV, but I do like Friends and occasionally I watch soaps. I even have Netflix, I just need to learn to utilise it more!!

Q4 What’s your dream vacation? (@The_Happy_Diary on Twitter)

Well, I went to America when I was about 6 for a wedding and haven’t been back since so I’d really like to go back there because I don’t remember much as it was over 10 years ago!

Q5 What camera do you use for your blog photos and any editing apps you use? (@imhayleydotcom on Twitter)

Currently I use my camera (Nikon D3200) and my mum’s camera (Nikon D750) to take my blog photos and I edit them using Adobe Photoshop CC and the Photos app on iPhone (depending on where or what I’m doing with the photo)

Q6 What’s your favourite thing to do apart from being sarcastic and photography? (My friend, Sofia)

Hahah! Well obviously I like to blog a lot, otherwise I wouldn’t be doing this! I also like to do gymnastics and I practise on my trampoline all the time (when it’s not raining!)!!

Q7 What’s your favourite Disney movie? (My friend, Ellen)

Hmm, I dunno, I like them all!! My favourite changes a lot! My favourite movie (s) is definitely the Harry Potter series buttt I don’t know which Disney movie is my favourite…

Q8 How old are you? (Anonymous)

I am 16 and my birthday is the 9th November (hint, hint!!)

Q9 Why did you start blogging? (Anonymous)

I started blogging when I was about 12 or 13 and I’m not entirely sure why I started. I guess I just thought it was pretty cool. I think Zoella was just beginning to become pretty big and I guess I was just inspired by her!

Q10 Any tips for new bloggers? (Anonymous)

Yes, first of all, PLAN! Plan what sort of things you’re going to share or you will not get anywhere! Also, relax, be yourself! I literally type how I talk and I say things I would normally say. Make sure your blog is easy to read and appealing to your target readers. Finally, post what you want. Don’t be pressured into writing something you’re uncomfortable writing!

I hope you enjoyed my Q & A! I will definitely do another one in the future so please send me more questions if you have any!

Byyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

Update-September 2017

Hello!

Soooooo, today I had my enrolment at college… I’m officially a college student! I’m doing A Level English Lang & Lit, A Level Photography and a BTEC L3 in Health & Social Care.

Now that I’m going back to school, I need to get back into a proper routine and so I’m going to have a regular posting time. Right now it’s only preliminary because I haven’t got my timetable yet but it will probably stay the same regardless. So I will be posting:

Every Wednesday @ around 5pm

Most Saturdays OR Sundays @ around 1pm

I’m hoping to publish a post bi-weekly but I cannot guarantee what day it will be at the weekend but I will try my very best to stick to the Wednesday Post. The posting will only be different if there’s a particular special event happening or there’s something I need to post that I believe to be time critical.

Thanks for understanding!

Seeee Yaaaaaaaah Soon!

Reviewing Mug Food

Heyyyyyyy!

So today, I’ve decided to do a review….. of Mug Food… Interesting. I tested them to see if they were worth their convenience!

In case you didn’t know mug food is a form of food designed specifically to be eaten out of a mug. I’m doing a review of three different types: Mug Shot (Pasta), Cup A Soup and Pud in a Mug. Quick Disclaimer, all these views are my own and no I’m not being paid to give a good opinion. My unhealthy bank balance of £0.91 proves this, I think!

First up, Mug Shot:

Mug Shot, a convenient pasta meal, ready in five minutes? Is it too good to be true? I have to admit, I’m a bit of a sucker for the Tomato and Herb Mug Shot (above). For a five minute mug pasta meal, it ain’t half bad is it? It comes in different flavours though and I have to admit, as much as I flippin love Mac n’ Cheese, I wasn’t a massive fan of the Mug Shot Mac n’ Cheese but I guess for under a quid and ready in five minutes, it is what it is! My mum had the blue one, I think it’s Chow Mein or something and I think she liked that! Oh yeah, all you have to do is add a splash of boiling water, stir, leave it to stand for for five minutes and bob’s your uncle (or whatever that expression is). It ain’t perfect but for the sake of five minutes, you can’t fault it much! I’m now going to rate the Tomato and Herb one:

Convenience: 7/10 (very quick, easy)

Taste: 7/10 (I like this one but not some of the other flavours)

OVERALL RATING: 4/5 STARS (I like it, it’s clever and easy and makes a nice meal when you’re a bit mehh)

Next up is Cup A Soup:

Just like the Mug Shot, this is quick and easy, no faff required. Just add hot water and leave it to stand for a few minutes. These also come in different flavours, this is a tomato and vegetable one but I also have chicken and vegetable and there’s a few others too! When I tested it to write about, I was having one of those days where everything tastes weird and nothing is appealing (thinking about it now, I probably chose a bad time!) so I now need to pretend what it would actually be like. Again, for the sake of five minutes if you need something quick, its perfect. It tastes slightly watery because it’s not exactly like real soup but can’t fault it otherwise. I like to pair soup with some crusty bread and it works well with this kind of soup too so that’s a plus!

Convenience: 8/10 (good, quick meal)

Taste: 8/10 (I prefer proper soup but this is a good quick alternative)

OVERALL RATING: 4.5 Stars (not much to fault for what it is)

Last but definitely not least, Pud in a Mug!

The only one I’ve tested is the Chocolate Chip sponge cake one, but again, it comes in different flavours such as chocolate and sticky toffee pudding. Some supermarkets do their own ones as well. I have to admit, I’m quite a fan of this! For a cake that takes 90 seconds it’s like heaven on earth! All you do is add a splash of milk, and stick it in the microwave! Admittedly not the best cake ever, but for what it is and the convenience *mwah*. I’ve had this twice and the first time it was a little soggy, I think I needed to let it cool for a couple of minutes first! The second time, I did, and it was soooososo much better. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I even added a small scoop of ice cream for that extra kick! Nom! This is probably my favourite out of the three and I’m excited to try the other flavours.

Convenience: 9/10 (a hot pudding in 1.5 minutes, yes please!)

Taste: 9/10 (when left to cool slightly and cooked perfectly)

OVERALL RATING: 5 stars!! (and the best part is, it’s less than £1!)

These are available at any good supermarket (Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, CoOp Etc.) for less than one pound! (Except the Cup a Soup but it comes in a pack of 4) See the links for Tesco (the prices vary but are very similar in all supermarkets):

Tesco- Choc Chip Pud in a Mug 

Tesco- Sticky Toffee Pudding Pud in a Mug

Tesco- Choc Cake Pud in a Mug

I’m not adding all the flavours but here’s Tesco- Tomato and Herb Mug Shot

Tesco- Tomato Cup a Soup (again I’m not adding all the flavours there’s so many!)

Hope you get inspired to try some of these, they’re quite good really!

See yah

GCSE Results Day 2017

Today was GCSE Results Day! My entire secondary school career has built up to this day and I’m happy to announce that I think that I did pretty well, better than I thought I would anyway! In celebration of this I have decided I want to share my results with you! Here we go!

Maths: 5 (equivalent to a low end of B and the high end of C)

English Language: and a Merit in a Speaking task (equivalent to a C, Standard Pass)

English Literature: 5 (Strong Pass)

Business & Communications: B (I got an A* in the coursework though and then a B and a C in the exam)

Biology: B (I got 2 A and 2 C so it equalled a B overall)

Chemistry: B (I got 3 B and an A)

Physics: C (Not as good at Physics than the other sciences!!)

DT Textiles: B (A in coursework, B in exam)

French: D (It’s difficult for me to understand unfamiliar language, even English sometimes, hence why I got E in the Listening and Speaking and C in the Writing and Reading!!)

Citizenship: B

History: B (got A and A* in the exam but got a D in the coursework even though my teacher told me it was a B!)

So yeah, I’m pretty happy with those results! I don’t have to do any re-sits, yay!

The Liebster Award 2017

So, I was nominated by Hayley from imhayley.com (Thanks for that!) for something that is a big part of the blogging community and a great way for bloggers to share their work.

The Liebster Award is given to bloggers by bloggers and it is a way of bloggers being to help each other. I was asked some questions by my nominator and now I’m going to answer them because, well, I feel like I should

MY QUESTIONS 

Q1 What are some weird food combinations you enjoy?

I’m not sure if it’s a particularly weird combo, but I like macaroni cheese and toast… I think anything else I like is pretty normal because I’m boring like that!

Q2 Who is your biggest inspiration in life?

Hmm, well I’m going to be a little bit basic here and say my mum, because, she is! But also my friends and people who live to help others such as doctors and charity workers.

Q3 When did something start out badly for you, but in the end it was great?

Well, when I started gymnastics I was pretttyyy rubbish, I always managed to create some kind of injury! But now I have improved so much and it has made me so much happier and stronger!

Q4 What’s the best/worst practical joke that you’ve played on someone or that was played on you?

I don’t think I really have much of an answer for this from personal experience, but my Dad was part of the prank played on Stephen Mulhern by Ant and Dec on their Saturday Night Takeaway show a couple of years ago as it was in the theatre he works in!

Q5 When was the last time you got to tell someone ‘I told you so’?

It was just the other day but I can’t remember what it was about hahahah!

Q6 What are you interested in that most people aren’t?

In the entire population, I’m not sure! But out of people I know, I’m the only person that has, and in interested in a Bullet Journal…. (if that counts)

Q7 If you could have an all expenses paid trip to see a world famous monument, which monument would you choose?

This is a difficult question… I want to see all of them so that I can take photographs!

Q8 What was the last song you sang along to?

*checks spotify* Galway Girl, Ed Sheeran… I think

Q9 What languages do you wish you could speak?

As many as I could so that I can communicate with many amazing people!

Yeahhh, so I guess it’s my turn to dish out nine questions, here we go:

  1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
  2. If you could only read one book/book series for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  3. Who was the last person you called?
  4. What’s your favourite drink?
  5. What is your favourite hobby/past time?
  6. What is one product you can’t live without
  7. Would you rather have no jumpers/sweaters or no socks?
  8. How long have you been blogging for?
  9. If you could go into any career in the world, what would you choose?

I nominate for the Liebster Award: (I don’t follow that many bloggers yet I’m new to this!) (Also you don’t have to answer the questions, you just need to know your blogs are great!)
