My Summer bucket list ♡

The past few months have been a whirlwind at my school - being a prefect, house captain , student council rep & exam taker was a lot to handle as a year nine in the last few weeks of school. It's fair to say though my work payed off as I managed to achieve the only goal I set myself for the start of year 10 - to land myself into set 1 English. I'd like to say the same for maths but unfortunately I managed to nail myself right in the middle of upper band (exams that take you to a*) and got set 3/10... All my friends are either in set 1 of 6. So I have quite a lot of work to do this year if I want to catch up with them (with maths being my weakest point I'm going to need all the revision guides in the world).

During the last few weeks I took a cute trip to the zoo with some of my year group for a day my school all get together and do 'fun' things. Lucky for me I actually got to do a fun thing unlike the previous year when I got stuck doing a collage of the word 'belive' for 5 hours &i also said goodbye to a few pretty amazing people that have been on a very roller coaster inspired 3 years - my performing arts teacher who was one of those teachers you go to about anything in the world , my form tutor who put up with me every morning for the past 3 years ( despite his attempts to get me to do things like mentoring he was one of the best going) & kayley a friend who a few of you  remember from when she blogged we had a crazy experience together we went from friends to hating each other so often we ended up forgetting why we fell out. 

But enough of the life updates. Here's my summer bucket list for this year ( I made this a while ago and I've ready completed some of them but let's pretend you don't know that ).There might be a post about my summer in a few weeks *winks terribly* -

  •  Go camping with friends - even if it's just in my garden it's a great way to make new memories with the people who mean most before we all get lost in the stress of year 10 that is inevitably on its way *shudders*
  • Go to a fair at night - does this need explaining really? Like can you imagine the Instagram potential?
  •  Read more - I used to read all the time but school and all my commitments got the better of me and left me with no spare time. Summers my perfect opportunity to get reading again, if you have any suggestions of good books leave it in the comments below and I'll check them out :) 
  • Go to the great ecc show- it's a tradition is my friendship group to go and it's so much fun. I actually went like 2 weeks ago and I love it so so so much ahhhh!
  • Do more of what I love- for me this is photography, I love capturing moments that will bring back memories to life, and being able to see the most intricate details of life.
  • Try and stay on the same theme for instagram and not change it every other week (its safe to say this one is going quite well at the moment).

What do you love? 

What are your goals for the summer?

 Let me know!

The bag ♡


Everywhere I go, it follows- alike a lost puppy if you will. It's become a part of me. It's constantly dirty and one of the straps has broken ( don't trap your bag in a car door, it will break ). But I love it. And I use it everyday. Literally.

I originally bought this bag in October 2014 and instantly fell in love with it. I'd wanted a vans rucksack (or backpack - whatever you want to call it) for a few months, but at £30 for a rucksack  it was a bit out of my price range. I was only 13 okay? 

Anyway, my mum tried to convince me to wait for my brother to come home from university so I could use his student discount but I had waited so long and I had finally found the one I like, with my local vans shop being a 2 hour drive from me I didn't really fancy:
 a) waiting for my brother 
b) the possibility of turning up and it not being there 
c) ording it online and having it flat packed because I cannot stand that for some reason. I JUST DON'T LIKE IT!
Anyway back to the point, after having a debate with my mum over it and telling her I would pay for t all if I could just buy it now I made a joke about it to one of the sales assistants who then at the till had over heard mine and mother dearest little debate and decided he would give me the discount anyway! I was over the moon. 
Since getting the bag, I have become more and more in love with it and don't leave the house without it! I've even attacked it with all time low badges that i got in HMV a few weeks ago. It genuinely couldn't be more perfect - ATL, comfy , purple & black.

So for £30 I recommend EVERYONE to go and buy a vans bag as they are literally the comfiest, lightest, nicest shaped & best quality rucksack EVER. I can't find my exact bag and colour online but you can get tonnes of different colours and styles at vans and online - THEY EVEN HAVE A NEW DISNEY RANGE! The grey mickey mouse one is killing me, i need it so bad you have no idea :")
p.s this wasn't sponsored but i am literally so obsessed with this bag so i think you should all grab yourself one!
