Pinterest Round-Up

Instead of reading in the evenings, I have been on Pinterest because I find it requires less mental energy and, at the end of the day when I am exhausted after school and revision, Pinterest is just calling me.
From a selection of prom outfit ideas to summer plans to food I will most likely forget to ever make, these are the things I have been pinning recently.

Churros con Chocolate is a very popular pastry sold in Spain. It is served as breakfast and as a dessert. It received its name from nomadic shepherds who herded ‘Churro Sheep’ in the mountains of Spain. Because they were nomadic, they could only bring what was necessary; therefore the churro was a popular choice because of its small size and simplicity. Today, the churro is often served with and dipped into Spanish hot chocolate, which is thicker than hot chocolate normally sold in America. #1A

I practised with HTML (lol big mistake) and attempted to link the photos to their subsequent Pinterest pictures (woah steady on) but being a technology noob, some of it doesnt quite link up but forgive me, it was my first go. You can find everything here on my Pinterest page, which please do follow if you love Pinterest as much as I do so I don't feel quite so sad and we can appreciate its beauty together. Also, fyi, my likes are so much more interesting than my pins.

I apologise in advance for the horrendous writing in this post, I am exhausted.
Over the past few weeks I have accumulated a couple of things that I would not normally buy as I have been treating myself for all the revision I have been doing (or at least that's what I have been saying!) so, as I hadn't posted in ages and I have a bit of spare time on my hands due to it being half term,  I thought I would show you. Plus I was dying to get my camera out as it feels soo long since I've done anything creative or fun.

Secret Garden Colouring Book
My mum bought this for me just before exams started because I was desperate for something to do where I didn't have to think, where I could just sit and escape for hours without having to think about exams. I had been admiring this book for ages, its so beautiful and, even if you aren't a fan of colouring (it isnt childish I promise) its still a gorgeous book to have. I have already bought this for two of my friends as I knew how much they would love it and we are all hooked!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
Since I last blogged, I lost and found all my makeup. It was a pretty nightmarish time, not because I rely on my makeup but because I had all my nicest bits in there as I was using it to get ready for a party. I then found half of it but none of my mascaras (I did eventually find it) but it was  a great excuse to go out a try a new one as I had been stuck in a rut for ages. I really like this, its very thickening, almost clumpy and creates a very full look.

Zoeva 102 Silk Finish Brush
This was the order I was most excited for. I had been debating with myself for ages as to whether I should buy this and which one I should buy but I decided upon the silk finish brush because I needed a brush like this for prom (and other events) and was going to buy the Real Techniques Core Collection but then I only really wanted the Buffing Brush so I thought this was a much better alternative.
It is amazing. Honestly, its so soft and perfect for blending in literally anything, I use it for my concealer. I will definitely be buying more of these very soon (I have my eye on the Luxe contour brush). Also, sorry you can't see the actual brush, it was really dirty but I was desperate the take the photos but here's a link if you want to check it out)

I had a sudden realisation in one of my sentimental moments (I just can't seem to get over the fact that I have a week left of school-its gone so god damn fast ahh) that if I lost all my digital photos, I would have no way of remembering any recent memories because I haven't printed any photos out in ages. So I made a SnapFish order. I'm not sure if snapfish does the best quality pictures but they give me 50 free prints a month so its worth it. I ordered around 100 and wrote the dates of every memory on the back so in a couple of years when we have all left school and drifted away, I can remember all the fab times I had and adventures we embarked on. Pretty emosh really.

Topshop Floral Tile Print Shorts
I desperately need some new clothes, I am sick of either black jeans and grey tops or a hoodie. I need some variety but I just can't seem to find anything at the moment. I did pick these up however a while ago with my sister and, while only wearing them twice, love them. They are very loose fitting and flowy but have a lovely pattern and hang really nicely. I also love the trim along the edge-I am hoping to get a lot of wear out of these if it ever gets warm.

New Balance 620 Trainers
These are my happiest purchase. I have been lusting over a pair of New Balance for ages but just never really got round to getting any because I live in my beloved Converse. But my mum said she fancied some too and seeing as neither of us knew how much we would wear them and as we have the same size feet, we decided we would get a pair to share. We got the navy with pink, grey and gold (I think they are exclusive to Office) and ahh they are all kinds of awesome. They are so comfy and nice to wear and I think I am going to have to treat myself to a black pair too so I can alternate (as I don't wear any other colours than black, blue and grey).

So there we have it, a couple of things that I have treated myself to over the past few weeks. I have also been buying some things for prom but I reckon I'll put that all in one big post nearer the time.

As if this post wasn't long enough, I thought I would ramble on a little more. I have now become notorious for the amount I write. There was a rumour going round that I wrote 13 pages in my English Literature exam but I can't help it, I just have a lot to say. Even my teacher has started saying I am 'wasting trees'...Speaking of exams, I am 14 down and 8 to go. I had 4 on one day which was horrendous but I am slowly getting through them without too many panics. I don't feel like I've completely messed any up but it all seems a bit of an obliviom anyway. I plan to do little more this week than shop, Pinterest and revise with only English language, Maths, Further maths (ahhh), history and geography to go.
I hope you all have a nice week,

p.s that post was ridiculously long I know-ahh feels good to be back.
