Winter Holiday Reading 2015: More Than This by Patrick Ness

So a friend of mine throughly loves Patrick Ness, and whilst I've seen his books around for the entirety of my secondary-school life, I haven't picked any of them up. Mostly because his books don't sound much like my 'thing'. This is one of, if not the, newest of his books. 'More Than This' is… Continue reading Winter Holiday Reading 2015: More Than This by Patrick Ness

Winter Holiday Reading: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

I finished a book as the winter holidays began. (Over a month ago, I know!) The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is, by far, not the most appealing title, and the blurb reads like a supernatural rip-off of the Hunger Games. Seriously, I hate YA blurbs these days. I thought marketers wanted the book to stand out,… Continue reading Winter Holiday Reading: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

Reflection: Mock My Week.

(Featuring sheet masks and insta-crafting.) Mock exams are a roller-coaster of emotions. Psychology was fine other than that I didn't write enough,  and didn't know my arguments well enough to write more. I know full well I am capable of at least two sides of writing for topics I definitely get,  but for now I'm… Continue reading Reflection: Mock My Week.

Kbeauty Hauls!

    Ordering things from abroad is always full of tension - they give such a broad range of delivery dates that I have no clue when to expect them. So it was a real surprise when my K-beauty Holiday Hauls all came in over the last two weeks. First of all, HKCPlaza. The items… Continue reading Kbeauty Hauls!

A Year of Twenty Swans!

Hello everyone! First of all, since I missed the chance, I would first like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, which I hope is much better than 2015 was for me. I am very happy to see the back of it, personally. Today's an extra special day for 20S,… Continue reading A Year of Twenty Swans!

The Things I Have Done Instead of Hibernation.

I am still strangely content with the progression of life and things right now. How strange is that? It's true that I am tired, though. We are approaching the end of term and right now we all just want to hibernate until Mock Exams are over or something. But despite those exams looming I don't… Continue reading The Things I Have Done Instead of Hibernation.

It does not feel like it’s 4:50pm.

I feel like today, even though I didn't do anything significant, has tired me out a lot. The caretaker at school was handing out a lot of tinsel and my friends got armfuls each to decorate our booth with. We had seven heated games of benchball, five of which my team won, all the while… Continue reading It does not feel like it’s 4:50pm.

Updates: Haulin’ Cuz I’m Ballin

... Ballin under the definition that apparently, I'm rich, according to Q. I'm not rich, it's just that I seem to be spending all my summer-earned money on Christmas and Little Black Friday Things. My collection of lip things had grown considerably over the last year - read: since I started blogging - and I… Continue reading Updates: Haulin’ Cuz I’m Ballin

National Novel Writing Month, we meet again.

During Inktober, I was perfectly content with drawing and stressing out over drawing. Writing and stressing out over writing, however, is another matter. I'm perfectly okay with explaining what NaNoWriMo is by now, because I keep snapchatting my word count and tweeting about it and nobody seems to know what I am talking about, anyway.… Continue reading National Novel Writing Month, we meet again.

Friday 13th – A Day of Good Luck?!?

I didn't remember that it was Friday the 13th until I got home and my sister told me! It's been a pretty good day. For one, today is Children in Need day. Millions of people nationwide will, like me, be tuning in to the BBC telethon which is always a lot of fun. I do… Continue reading Friday 13th – A Day of Good Luck?!?
