Being happy!

Evening my fellow reader chums!

Being happy is hard when you've gone through tough times and are feeling low, I know exactly what that feels like as this year hasn't exactly been a walk in the park. I've overcome some really hard things and am still overcoming them, its just a case of staying positive and knowing you have friends who will always support you through everything! I don't really want to go in to detail about what its been like as I hate looking at the past and like to look forward with hope! You never know what the next day is going to bring so don't dwell on the past, live for the moment and be spontaneous.

My advice for you if you're experiencing a rough time is to talk it out, even though it may be hard to tell people your problems, I promise its  easier to deal with them knowing you have support, as they say a problem shared is a problem halved. You shouldn't have to feel alone and keep it all bottled up, somebody out there does care and don't think otherwise, talk to your friends/family/teachers etc, there will be someone who will listen!  You're all loved and deserve to be happy as you are good enough.

For a long time its been hard to keep smiling and not think of the hard times, however I'm lucky to have my dance girlie's at school as they never fail to cheer me up and always make me smile even if I don't want to! Today was such a good day, we had a great laugh in dance, I couldn't control my laughter!

Ha ha, love this! My Chummy and I in Frankie and Bennie's last month, I do love her! I don't think I would've gotten through this year without her, she's been my rock!
 
Therefore, stay positive and strong, it will get easier, there was times this year, I'd never thought I'd get through but I have and I'm smiling again! Talk to someone, don't keep it all inside. Live your life to the full and try and appreciate what you have! Don't look at the past at the mistakes you've made but look to the future with hope and a positive outlook and don't forget to smile! Follow those dreams and make something of yourself.
 
Be the change you want to see in the world <3

Makeover on Maria!

Well hello my fellow bloggers and readers!

Today, I spent the whole day doing my English coursework, such fun! But then I did a little make over on Maria, exciting times! I really like testing out new make up looks and its even better doing them on someone else! Here's some pictures:


Before:
 After:



 
I really like this look it uses subtle brown and gold colours for the lid and crease with a creamy colour to highlight the brow bone and inner corner to make the eyes  pop! I then lined the lash line with liquid black liner and the water line with black coal liner. I hope you like the look :)
 
Thank you for reading! <3

Let the sun shine, let the sun shine baby!

Evening my fellow reader chums!

Today, the British weather decided to be sunny, yay! I actually wore shorts for the first time this year, I did get many strange looks though.. I guess not everyone thought it was as warm as I thought, oh well! I went to play tennis today which is weird as I'm usually more of a dance girl. It was actually so funny, I was crying with laughter! I'm terrible at tennis, I have the worst aim ever! I went with my twin Maria, and my besties Jess and Paulina. It was amazing spending time with them as I never get to anymore. I've realised how much I miss them, Jess and Paulina are two of my oldest friends so its sad I don't get to spend that much time with them... It makes me appreciate life more to know I have good friends that are always there for me, even if were not as close anymore I know they're there for me.

I can't believe its already the end of April! May is nearing, meaning exams are coming up ahh so nervous, a levels have been so much harder than i ever anticipated. However I'm determined to get through the next month and achieve the grades I want, as all you could do is try your best! After exams means summer is coming baby! Happy times, I'm really excited this year, my aunt Helen and my cousins are visiting from Greece and i haven't seen them since I was thirteen!

             My family and I in Greece 2005, the first time i visited them when they moved to Greece <3

I'm also excited about summer because it means creating amazing memories with all my friends, that will stay with us forever! Bring on the sun and beaches! <3

New friends!

Evening my fellow reader chums!

As you probably already know, i began sixth form the September just gone and am studying five a levels: English, double dance, history and Philosophy & ethics! Yes it is a lot of work but you just have to plough through it!

Since i began sixth form, I've become more confident as a person as I've got to meet loads of new people and as were only a small sixth from, everyone is quite close and its easier to talk to people. In particular I've gotten closer to everyone who studies double dance, were like a little family and i love them so much! They have defiantly brought me out of myself and made me like more me, if that makes sense? I feel more comfortable now being myself with people, i feel like I'm not as shy as i used to be, which i love!

Even though i have known most people in the sixth form since year 7 I've never really had the chance to speak to them as we were all in our own friendship groups, there still is some divide but its easier to talk to everyone! I never had the chance to get close to the dance girlie's in earlier years but I'm so happy i have now! Also, to have new additions to our group: Gee and Laura as they have defiantly changed us but for the better! As i said I'm so happy this year has brought upon new friends, who I've gotten so close to and brought me out of my shell more! <3

Here's some pics with me and my dance girlie's:

Love all the dance girlie's loads, we are family! Kisses <3 xxxxxxx

Everyone is beautiful!

Hello my fellow reader chums, i hope you're all well!

Today's blog is going to be a serious one. Bullying is a horrible thing that nobody should have to experience, it really sickens me when people feel its okay to put another person down and make them feel useless. I have been bullied before and its one of the worst feelings in the world not thinking you're good enough and people laughing at you. What right do you have to judge someone? Everyone has their own story to tell, you don't have the right to judge them because of it.

Words hurt. Saying things such as 'fat', 'ugly', 'useless', 'slut' etc, these words that you think are 'funny' could seriously  hurt and affect someone. You have no idea what that person could do to try and change themselves to try and get your acceptance. Bullying is no laughing matter, even if you say this as a joke some people will take it  to heart as they could already be really insecure so by saying this it would lower their confidence even more. Think before you speak, you have no idea the pain you could cause from one word.

If anyone has ever said anything like this to you, just ignore them, they are wrong. You are all beautiful in your own individual way no matter what size or shape you are. You don't need to have a stick thin figure to be beautiful, just be you its the best person you  can be and people will love you for it. Stand out from the crowd and be different! Society is going to judge you no matter what you look like, just embrace those flaws and appreciate life!

Nobody's perfect, please don't change yourself to reach society's idea of 'perfect' as it doesn't exist! Your always going to see girls and think oh my gosh there so much prettier than me, but how do you not know that someone else is looking at you in exactly the same way?!

My advice for you is just embrace those flaws and try and be comfortable with your body, i know its hard. Go to the mirror and look at yourself, tell yourself everything you do like about you and think about that every time you look in the mirror rather than all your insecurities.

Please don't take any drastic measures if someone is bullying you, talk to a friend/parent/teacher, there is someone out there who will help you! If you need any advice dm me on my twitter @DellaLoves1Dxx or message me on my facebook page Girly teens that's all <3

Thank you for reading beauties, remember to stay true to yourself! <3

University talks ahh!!

Well hello my fellow reader chums!

Today i visited a university fair with my sixth form which is basically where you go to all the different booths to receive information about different unis in the country. May i say what a selection like where do I begin?!  There were so many different courses available and making decisions is just extremely difficult, its bad enough i have no idea what i want to do in the future but seeing all these choices is making me panic more! Ahhh help!

I'm only sixteen years old and its weird to think next year I'll be choosing decisions which are going to decide what I'm going to be doing with my life! I honestly don't feel mature enough to be deciding such vital things, i miss the days where your parents picked everything for you! I genuinely miss being a child and i don't get why we wanted to grow up its so much harder than i expected! They say teenage years are hard and they definitely are, its been such an emotional time for me recently, i really just want to go back to the good old days!

My twin sister Maria, my brother Matthew and I <3

My family <3
 
The good old days where the hardest thing was choosing a ice cream flavour! As much as i argue with my family , i do love them dearly and have no idea what I'd do without them! I guess as I've had such a hard time lately and all the stress is getting to me I'm taking it out on them..

My advice i would give to you is to don't panic like me, it'll get you nowhere trust me! Look into all the courses that take your interest and work towards it if you really want it! I'm not entirely sure if I'm going to university or not but whatever i decide, I'm just going to appreciate what i have and try and enjoy life more! As you only do live once so live for the moment, be spontaneous and have no regrets! <3

Wicked review!!

Evening my reader chums!

Last month i was very lucky to go and see wicked at the west end with all the dance girlie's, and i can honestly say it exceeded my expectations! Ever since i went to see it my sister and I can't stop singing the songs, its a must see! Wicked is certainly wicked, its in the title! :)


The acting singing and dancing was phenomenal and in particular Elphaba's voice it was outstanding, one of the best I've ever heard! It gave me goosebumps and brought tears to my eyes when she sang defying gravity! This was one of my first experiences of a west end show so i had no idea what to expect, i knew it would be amazing as I've heard a gazillion good reviews on it and they were certainly accurate, its one of the best things I've ever watched, I'm definitely going to see it again.

Wicked is outstanding, with flawless singing, dancing and acting its a must see that anyone would enjoy to watch, i definitely give it 5 stars and would happily see it again!
My best friend and  I before the performance, happy times! :)
 
Hope you enjoyed this blog! :)
 
 

MUA undress me too palette review!

Well hello fellow bloggers and readers!

As i said in my previous blog i was going to do a review on the MUA undress me too palette to here it is! First of can i just say i love it, it has such beautiful pigmented, natural colours which are easy to use for a natural day to day look. I've used the previous undress me palette which was amazing and i could easily create shadowy eye effects from, that i didn't think MUA could get much better but bam here this came! This palette only costs me £4 what a bargain, making it easily affordable! The palette comes with twelve colours ranging from creamy to darker colours such as dark metallic browns and black.


I personally use this palette on a day to day use because it creates a natural looking eye effect. the colours aren't too bold and stand out too much but are rather subtle and flattering, as i have blue eyes the brown bring out my eyes even more! I find the creamy colours useful to highlight the brow bone and in the inner corner making your eyes stand out that little bit more. Here's some pictures of my favourite look with this palette:














To achieve this look i use four of the colours, one on the lid, two in the crease and the outer corner and one to highlight the brow bone and inner corner. As soon as my channel is set up I'll do my day to day make up routine which will be this look. I find this look natural and subtle that can be worn as a daily thing without looking too extravagant.






The MUA palette is a must buy in my opinion, its affordable and in anyone's price range if you don't want to splash out on high end make up brands such as Mac. This palette has twelve pigmented and natural colours which can easily achieve a shadowy eye or effect of a daily look. The uses of this palette are endless with multiple looks being able to be created. Therefore, go out and buy it as i guarantee you'll enjoy it as much as me, i mean with it costing £4 where can you go wrong?

Hope you enjoyed reading! :)

Sun, sun, sun!

Evening fellow readers!

Today it was actually sunny, spring is finally here! I went out the house without a jacket for once, happy times! :)

Did a little make up shopping today, getting a few bits to test out! Exciting times! I think I've gained a bit of an obsession with make up, i just love trying out new techniques. I'm currently into winged liner, i love the look of it! Here's me today:

 
You can't really see all my eye shadow in this picture but i have a current obsession with the MUA undress me palette, its got such beautiful colours! Will do a separate review on it soon! :)

Goodnight all my readers, stay strong, positive and don't give up!

Exams worries and chocolate!!

Evening my fellow readers!

Its Friday yay, so happy the weekend has come! Had a hard week coming to terms with the fact that my A level exams are next month, so stressed and scared if I must say! I'm really happy i have supportive friends around me though because without them i don't know how I'd get through all this, its been a tough year! Today i received a little present from my friend from her recent visit to Poland, happy times!
Ahh polish chocolate, its the nicest thing ever and it has such a cute packaging! :)

Now in the upcoming month I'm going to need to keep calm, if your like me and having a little panic about exams just take a moment and breathe. It'll all be okay in the end because, as they say if its not okay its not the end. Don't overwork your self into a state, create a timetable and plan when your doing revision, pace through it, don't rush or it'll all get jumbled in your head. Its also important to have a break, if your constantly thinking about this work and the panic, you'll stress yourself out more, so my advice is spend some time with friends/family away from it all and then continue working.

Most important thing is to just do your best, its all you can do! If you know you tried your hardest, nobody can knock you for that! Don't give up!

Make sure you remember to breathe, it is a stressful time and i just can't wait till its over! Roll on summer 2013! :)

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

Evening my reader chums!

Decisions, decisions, decisions aye?! One of the many reasons i hate growing up, there's just so much to think about! I'm now nearly at the end of my first year of sixth form and let me tell you it hasn't been easy, people were right about the big jump from GCSE to A levels, they are so much harder! Which means the end of school is nearly coming to an end with only a year left.. sad times if you think about it, I've had many good and bad memories there! However the real thing to think about now is what i want to do in the future and i can honestly say i have no idea, there's just so many things out there to choose from!

Everyone says do what makes you happy and follow your dreams, this exactly what I'm trying to do, I'm one of those people who dream big! Don't think your dreams are just automatically going to come, you do really have to work hard if you want to be at the top. Now if your like me and are clueless about what you want to do in the future here are some tips:

1) Talk to your local career adviser and see what jobs are available in the interests that you have.

2) Before you set a complete plan of what you want to do go and have a look at many universities/ colleges to get an idea of the multitude of courses out there.

3)Talk to your  teachers and family about career advise as they were once in your position and know what it was like.

4) Do what makes you happy, its your life after all so there's no point in doing a job that your parents think is best for you.

5) Get some work experience in that area of job you are interested in, so you'll get a feel of what its like and learn the trick of the trade.

6) If your  like me and considering opening a business, do some research on business and make sure you know the industry before taking drastic steps. Also research about loans and support as you have to start off somewhere, nothing can come from nothing!

I hope these tips help! Growing up is a pain, i just want to go back to being five again with no worries and knowing your parents chose everything for you all you had to choose was your ice cream flavour! Good times, so for now I'm going to keep researching into what i want to do and see whats out there.

Be the change you want to see in the world <3

The moments we live for!!

Well hello my fellow readers!

Had a little realisation today about everything, I've been so lucky this year, despite all the bad news I've been to loads of amazing places and did things i never thought i would do!

 Best day of my life going to see my idols live, One Direction! Ahhh it was just too amazing for words and I'm so happy i got to experience it with my best friends!

When you've waited for something for so long and it finally comes, its the best feeling in the world, i even cried when they came on stage it felt so surreal! If you were lucky enough to go to their Take Me Home Tour you'd know what I'm talking about! The boys are my idols and always will be <3
If that wasn't good enough in the same week i went to see wicked on the west end with all the dance girlie's as well as having a workshop at pineapple dance studios! Just wow! Seriously, anyone who reads this go see it, its beyond phenomenal, definitely recommend it! 5 stars!!
My best friend and I just before the performance :)
 
Today, i realised how amazing my friends are they're always there for me and always make me laugh i honestly don't know what I'd without them! I had a lovely catch up with two of my oldest friends on the train and i realised how much i missed them and the moments we used to have! All those inside jokes with your besties are the moments we live for, cherish life as time is a precious thing and you don't know how long these good things will last. Try and appreciate what you have more, i know its hard as you always think people have it better but trust me this is something I've been trying to do lately, look at your life and you'll realise you are lucky, people do have it much worse!


The moments we live for, love my best friends forever and always <3 :)
 

Don't give up!


Well hello my fellow reader chums!

Today was like a 'study day' in my sixth form, meaning we had the day off, exciting times! I guarantee everyone else was enjoying their day off and then there's me at home doing coursework, oh the joys of A levels!

Today was also the semi colon project, which i took part in here some info about it:




















People say suicide is a selfish act, but whats really selfish is making someone feel so low about themselves that they'll want to take their own life. Everyone out there you do have a purpose, don't listen to all those haters, stay strong and positive, i promise it'll get easier! Put your hand over your heart, you hear that its your heartbeat, you're living for a reason and you are loved!

If you are feeling down or low there are people who can help you, don't keep it all in, its better to talk to someone!

Stay strong and don't give up <3


Stepping out of your comfort zone :)


Evening, my fellow readers!

Hey there... so time for some wise words! I'm quite a shy girl when it comes to new people and new experiences and lately I've been trying to brake out of this shell which i usually hide away in and take on these new experiences and things life throws at you! Who knows where it can take you? Like they say everything has to start from somewhere, meaning if you want to do something go and give it a try as it could lead to something amazing that you'd thought would never happen before! Follow your dreams and don't give up, it may be hard at first but you just need to plough through it to get to the top!

I know its only a small thing but saying 'yes' to a big social gathering is really good for me, i only usually talk to people who i feel comfortable around and won't judge me, however for once i decided to go out and meet up with a big group of people that i don't really speak to! I suppose its brought out my confidence more and realised that maybe those people aren't that bad after all and don't judge me for who i am.

This year i have definitely become more confident as a person, I've taken on many things which i didn't think was possible and been to places I'd never thought I'd go! I've met so many new people when i started sixth form which I'm really happy about as they've made a big impact in my life and help me be me more if that makes any sense?

What I'm trying to say is if you feeling low on confidence, try and brake out your shell! Talk to new people, say 'yes' to opportunities that life throws at you and live for the moment! Time is a precious thing that you don't want to waste, so don't dwell on things that you could of done, do those things, have those experiences and most importantly enjoy life! :)

Back to school for the spring term!

Well hello to you fellow readers!

I've now come to the end of the Easter holidays...sigh! Back to school for me for the spring term which means work, work, work! Tip for you never do 5 A levels, just don't, if you want a social life that is! ;)

But, what a great way to start off the new term is with a new bag, yaay! Happy times for Della :D


New look £16.99! Not bad i have to say, i love it! I think the majority of my wardrobe is from New look, its like my favourite shop :) If you need a sophisticated cute bag like this, New Look is the place to go! <3
 

 
 
 


Childhood memories :)
