Monthly favourites | May 2015

Hello
I just wanted to say quickly that I'm really excited to write this monthly favourites. I have tried a lot a new products this month that I cant wait to share with you.


Beauty product:
I have two lush favourites this month. my first is the charity pot which is a body lotion. Now this smells fantastic and it makes my skin feel really moisturised and soft. 


Lush product;
My second lush favourite is the love lettuce face mask. Now I don't normally use face masks but I got chatting the the women in Lush who very kindly gave me a free sample to try. The first time I used this I was amazed. Now after my bath I couldn't stop stroking my face. Its okay, I'm not some weird lush fan but I was just really impressed at how smooth it made my skin feel. It also made it feel really hydrated. I would really recommend this to anyone looking for a face mask for combination skin. 


Film;
I have been loving father of the bride 2. I love this film and it was on TV this weekend so I was really excited to watch it again. Father of the bride 2 is where his wife and daughter are pregnant and its just such a funny film.


Food;
Walkers sun bites in the sweet chili flavour. These are really delicious and they are really low in fat. They are quite healthy for you but then again I did have several bag, so I guess that doesn't really count with me. 


TV series;
The Goldberg's. Now I know this was first aired in America, I think. This is a great show about the life of a boy in the 80's. I find it so funny and all the characters are so relatable. Its based on this boys life and at the end of some episodes it says who the episodes dedicated to and has an old home movie of them. Its a great show and I would recommend you all go and watch it. Its on E4 at 7.30pm Monday to Friday.


Book*;
I'm still reading this book so its exactly the same as last months, sorry. Carrie Hope Fletcher's book 'All I know now' and I'm loving it. I'm only about a quarter of the way through but I am loving it. This book is exactly the thing I needed when I was at school and its even helping me now. I would recommend that you all get yours self a copy because I think you will all love it.


Youtubers;
Those Rosie Days | Youtube | Twitter
I found Rosie's channel while browsing the British try's American candy videos and I couldn't wait to share it will you all. Rosie is so pretty and her personality shines through in her videos. Her content is great and the video quality is up there will all the big youtubers. I think you will all love her, so pop over to her channel and leave some lovely comments for her.
Bills by Lunchbox Lenny. So in England there was robbery at Hatton gardens which is where jewellery is kept. Me and mum found it hilarious that they managed to get away with stealing from a high security place. I know its wrong what they did but they didn't kill anyone, no one was hurt so even though its a crime it wasn't the worst there is. Now the reason why I love this song is because my mum pointed out how funny it would be if in court, if the judge asked why they commit the crime they played this. I couldn't stop laughing and now that's all I think of when I hear it. Click here to take you to the video.


Clothing;
My harry potter top. I got it from primark and I love that it has a copper colour on it. Its just so pretty.



Random;
So this Tuesday I may have gone out and got myself a lion head rabbit. When I say may have, I mean I did and its the most adorable thing I've ever seen. I'm struggling to think of an name though, I like belle and I like Fearne. So I'll update you what it becomes.


Thanks for reading.

Bye for now xxx

A puddle of tears | I'm only human

Hello
If you follow me on twitter then you may know that yesterday was a very stressful day for me. If you don't, then let me explain. My mum and dad went to see Fleetwood mac, my dad loves them and it was his anniversary present from mum. They went to London for the day and my sister went out. Now I went to leave for work, set the alarm but that decided to go wrong and the burglar alarm went off. 

Like I'm going to burgle my own house. Firstly I didn't have time, I needed to get to work. Secondly, there nothing in my house worth stealing. Now no mum, no dad and no sister meant that I had to deal with re setting the whole bloody alarm system all by myself while the neighbours thought I was robbing my own home. After frantically mashing things into the keypad I screamed several times and called my mum. Now what my mum doesn't know is that while I was talking to her, I was on the brink of crying.

My dad talked me through it but at this point I was really angry and about to burst into tears. Once I'd done it, I then fell down the last two steps on our stairs and twisted my ankle. Fast forward ten minutes and I was hobbling to work. When I got to work it turned out it was just me and one other women closing down. I didn't have a break for my whole shift and came out half an hour late. 

On the way home I walked while my head was replaying the scenes of the day. My eyes were filled with tears and I knew I was going to cry at some point. I kept it in though, I didn't want to look weird. Stress never normally gets to me but today it just didn't stop. The minute I got home I checked no one was in, went to my room and sat on my bed and cried for 10 minutes. I'm not even ashamed to say it. It was like I wanted to give up, everything that has been stressing me out over the last few months came flooding out. As I sat and sobbed I felt my stress go away. It was like my mind was this big bath tub and I'd just pulled the plug. I hadn't cried a river, more like a small pond.

I could have just carried on without telling you all, but to be completely honest I wanted to tell you. I'm not doing it for attention or sympathy. I wanted to share it because this is me. My blog could be filled with happiness all the time, but that's fake. You need to see the good and the bad and know that I'm not a robot that just writes blogs and posts them. 

I'm only human and I sometimes I need to just cry and sit in a puddle of my tears. Like the Christina perri song says "I can take so much 'Til I've had enough. 'Cause I'm only human And I bleed when I fall down. I'm only human. And I crash and I break down. Your words in my head, knives in my heart, You build me up and then I fall apart.'Cause I'm only human.

I hope you all understands why I posted this.

Growing up | Periods

Growing up | periods
Hello
So I started this little series about two weeks ago and I want to make it a weekly thing, just until I run out of ideas, haha. Now growing up can seem like a scary thing. Especially when you are expecting big changes to your body. Now I'm going to be writing this from a female point or view because I'm a girl and I haven't got a great idea of what growing up is like for boys. Periods can be scary when you're young. I was so scared to get my first period and I never liked talking about it to anyone, not even my mum.

Now I know most of my readers are of an age where they have already started their periods and don't need to be told any of this, but I want this information to be here if there are any younger readers. Now girls, I want you to remember that there is nothing to be embarrassed about. Every woman in the world has a period and it's perfectly normal. Now I still get embarrassed talking about periods around the men in my family and I think that's understandable, but I used to be really embarrassed to talk about it even with my sister and my mum. 

I never wanted to tell my mum because I was scared and embarrassed. There's no need to feel like this, even when talking to your dad. Now if your mums not around for any reason then if you don't feel comfortable talking to your dad or whoever it may be, talk to some of your female relatives, a doctor, friends or anyone your feel comfortable with. 

No I remember my first period like it was yesterday, now if your a boy reading this then you may feel a little grossed out but I know all your lady's won't mind me telling you. Now I was 12 when I got my first period and I was terrified, there was no need to be though. Now I didn't tell my mum in the morning. I had a sanitary towel in my bag just in case. Now that morning at school I had an hour of P.E. The last few lessons we had been doing discus which didn't really involve much movement but to my horror we had to do aerobics. We were using the gym mats doing sits ups, leg stretches and I was terrified I was going to come through. Ladies you will all know what I mean but for the boys, basically I didn't want to bleed through. Sorry for being graphic. 

Now luckily that didn't happen but every time I got up throughout the day, I thought I was going to leave blood wherever I went. Some girls will know what I mean, but if not then I'm not going to go into detail. Now I was in a lot of pain and I just wanted to go home. At the end of the day I got home and just cried to my mum and told her. I don't know why I was so scared to tell her. She'd been there and done it. 

Now some girls will have their period and not have any pain but then again, some will. Whatever happens just know that it's perfectly natural and you shouldn't be embarrassed. Now I'm not regular, there's nothing wrong it's just the way my body is. If you are worried then pop to your doctor and talk to them. 

Now if you haven't started your period yet, don't worry! It will happen and just enjoy the time you have before it happens. Now when it does happen just make sure your prepared. Feminax is great for pain relief, now I get bad period pains but some girls don't. Everyone is different. My advice would be to get a hot water bottle, some pain relief and chocolate of your choice. 

I hope that post wasn't to graphic, it's a part of growing up for girls and I wanted to share my experience to make people feel more comfortable about talking about it.

Shopping haul |

Hello
So last week I had the weekend off so me and my mum went shopping. Now I hadn't been out shopping in months and I was looking forward to going and getting some new bits and pieces. I was also looking forward to going out with my mum, we spend a lot of time together but it was nice to go out and actually do something.

First we went to the retail park where I popped into TK Max and Asda living. I got a really lovely notebook from TK Max which was £5. As you probably know, I am a massive stationery lover and even though I definitely didn't need any more notebooks, I still came home with a lot of Pads I didn't need. There wasn't really much in Asda living that I wanted so we went to the other retail park instead.


So the next place we went was Homesense. Now I've never been in Homesense so I was very excited. There was so much nice stuff in there and it was actually really good prices. Once again I found the stationery shelf and grabbed so much I almost dropped it all. I did have to work out what I actually wanted because I only had £30 cash and I wasn't near a cash machine.
Now I got some gorgeous notebooks and anyone who shares my love will appreciate these. If your not weird like me then you will not see the appeal of my notebooks.








In the last one that says Doodles and Scribbles, I am using this to write down a list of all my blog posts. I have filled it out already and its ready for more posts.

After my mum getting lost in the retail park, driving in the wrong lane and going round the round about twice we finally got to the shopping centre. We didn't go in a a lot of shops but we went in some of my favourite's. 

The first was Lush. My mum had to get my aunt some bits for her anniversary so I helped choose my favourites for her. I was also talking to one of the friendliest women in lush about the face masks. Now I wasn't sure which one to go for so the women kindly gave me a free face mask to take home and try. The face mask I was given is called love lettuce and I have to tell you how amazing it made my skin feel. I also got the charity pot which is a body lotion that smells absolutely incredible.



 After we had popped into Paperchase (i was so so excited to go in there) we went into primark. I got a few bits from there and it was all really cheap. I got a manicure set which was £2. I needed a new one because I somehow manage to loose all my sets. I got a new phone case which I forgot to take a picture of. That was only £2. I got a new pack of bunchy's (Everyone else calls them hair bands but I've always called them bunchy's since I was little.). I also got a platform 9 3/4 top which was £6. I love this top and cant wit to wear it.




The last place we went was cinnabon. Now me and my mum have wanted to try these for ages. Me and my mum got the caramel and pecanbon. There were the most deliciously fabulous scrumptious (I could go on all day) treats in the world.

That's it from me today. I'll see you all on Tuesday for a new post.

The Book tag |

Hello
I saw this tag a while ago and I cant find the blog I found it on. If it was you who did this tag or created it then please let me know as I want to read more of your blog. Im going to tag Lou (Lou's world) first as I know she loves books and also the rest of the lovely beau bloggers.

1. Favourite book?
I have a very big list of favourite's but I would have to go with Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher. I just love the romance in the story and I feel like I can relate to the character Sophie in a lot of ways.

2.Favourite author?
J.K Rowling, Giovanna Fletcher and Roald dahl. I love J.K Rowling because of the fantastic world she created though Harry Potter. I love Giovanna Fletcher because her writing style is just beautiful and I cant get lost in her words and be transported to a whole new world. I have also had to include Roald Dahl as he was the creator of so many brilliant books that I grew up reading, my favourite was always Matilda and I think they are brilliant book's for children.



3.What genre do you prefer?
Fantasy and romance. I love that with fantasy anything is possible and it really opens up your imagination and takes you to amazing places. I also love a romance novel because I think its nice to indulge in that once in a while, we all want a bit of romance in our lives and if that isn't possible in real life, then its nice to escape into a world where you can live it.

4.What is your favourite book series/trilogy?
Harry Potter, without a doubt. I only read the books last year and I was so amazed at the effect they had on me. I feel like this series has so many great life lessons and it takes you into a completely new world.



5. What book did you hate reading in school?
Romeo and Juliet. I hated this book, partly because we each had to read out loud the part of a character but also because everyone knows what happens. I just down think this was for me, I know its a brilliant story that's been read for years but it just didn't really interest me. 

6. What is one of the first books you remember reading?
When I was really little I know my mum read us Dr.seuss books but the first book I read on my own was probably the Amelia Jane series. I also used to read the 

7. Bookstores or Libraries?
Book stores. I feel like you can actually speak in a book shop without getting the look of death from the staff. I also love the smell of new books and what better place to go. I also love browsing through the hundreds of books they have in different sections.

8. How many books do you own?
About 30. This doesn't sound like a lot but I have quite a few on ibooks. I want to get more but I don't really have the room to have hundreds of books, I would love to have my own library but that's just not a possibility's.

9. Do you read before you go to sleep?
I do like to read before I got to sleep but I get really distracted by my phone. I know this is really bad but I am going to start reading more before I go to sleep. I think it will help me relax before I go to sleep, my minds normally in overdrive when I go to bed.

10. most comfortable reading position?
Laying on my bed on my stomach. Its just easier for me as If I sit up and read I get a really bad pain in my neck form looking down for hours at a time.

11. Most recent book you read?
The most recent book I read was Love, Tanya by Tanya Burr but I'm currently reading "Loves me not" by Samara O'Shea

12. What is one quotes from a book that you love?
“I think it’s funny how life can lead you down certain paths which you wouldn't have taken otherwise.” Billy and Me

13.  Science Fiction or Fantasy?
Fantasy. I feel like with science fiction there has to be a reason for why things happen but with fantasy there's no end to what can happen. I think fantasy gives your mind the freedom to create your own world within the book.

14. What book do you regret reading?
I don't think I have ever regretted reading a book. Even if a book hasn't been to my liking, I'm still glad I read it. I think you can learn a lot about yourself through books you don't like. Like books that have different opinions to you that you would have never thought about, it could be something little but you can learn a few things about yourself and what you like and don't like, if that makes any sense.

15. How large is your book case/shelf?
My book case is quite small and my books have to share the space with my DVDs. Take the size of a regular book and I would say its 16 books wide and has 4 shelves to put them on.



16. On average how many books do you read a year?
Probably about 4 or 5. I want to start reading a lot more, if you click on the bookshelf tab at the top of my blog then you can see just how many books I still have to read and review.

17. what book so you read hundreds of times without getting bored?
The Harry Potter series and Billy and me.

18. do you like to read outside?
I love reading outside int he summer. Although because I live in rainy England that's no much sun around, even in the summer.

19. what is the biggest life lesson you have learnt from a book?


20. What is the best book you have read so far?
Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher, I know I've mentioned this book several times during this post but its my favourite and really get me into romance novels.

Bye for now xxx

Growing up | Leaving childhood behind

Hello

I have been planning this little series type thing for a while now. Growing up means a lot of changes to you mentally and physically and I want to chat about that with you all. Even though I have gone through all the physical changes of growing up, I still feel like I'm in the process of becoming an adult. I still feel like I need that guidance from my parents on what to do, is that strange?

In this little series I want to talk about everything, changes to your body, emotions, friendship's and everything else that goes with the whole growing up process. I personally don't want to be an adult and that's weird considering I am. I don't feel ready for that yet, I have such Sweet memories of being little and having that innocence of the world. Although I want to do my own thing and be independent, I just don't feel like I'm ready.

When were younger we have this idea that the world is full of excitement, that when we grow up we will live in this fairytale world with our own prince charming. Its not like that at all, that's why I miss being that innocent little girl that believed in the fairy tales. I've come to realise that while the world can be exciting and filled with fair tales, it doesn't just happen. Your going to struggle to find what your good at, you can struggle to find what you really love and want to do and your going to fall in love with people that aren't yours to love. I think this little series will be more for my own benefit to just talk about the growing up process and get a better view of it.

For me I feel like now I've grown up and have been given freedom to do my own thing and am in charge of my own life, I feel disconnected sometimes from my parents. I feel like the decision's I make are the wrong ones, the choices I made were not what they wanted and I just feel like I'm letting them down at every opportunity. I make these decisions because I feel like they are right for me but I don't know if I'm wrong, my my and dad have always made the big decisions because they knew what was best for me and my sister. I doubt my own ability because I don't think they would understand my choices.

To me, growing up isn't just physical changes. For me it involved my whole world getting a new view, it meant not playing with my toys anymore and things like that. In am dreamer, I always have and always will be. I don't think there's anything  wrong with indulging in that. I just feel like now I have this label of being an adult, I shouldn't indulge in those dreams. When I was younger I would sit and laugh for hours about something that wasn't even funny, I would play for hours with my Bratz dolls creating a world in my head for them all to live in. I would develop crushes on my boys in my class without know the true feeling of love and heartache. I miss all these little things from when I was little and I don't like the fact that I see the world as it is. You can see why our parents chose to tells us these fairy tales when we were younger, they can see the world for what it is and its not full of magic and excitement for most people. Childhood is the only time we truly believe anything is possible and then one day the magic starts to fade and that saddens me. I'm not saying that I want to think the world is full of rainbows and unicorns but there's a part of me that wants my innocence of the world back.

Everyones growing up around me but I still feel like that's not happened for me, I don't feel any different but I know every things changed. I'm at the age where I should have grown out of the fairy tales, given up on the dreams and faced reality but the truth is I still live in my own little daydream. I have dreams that sometimes can seem way beyond my capability but to me, I'm still the little girl who believes in the fairytale's. I want to be able to live my dream but I know that everyone else will see that as silly. Am I wrong for wanting to do something I love, I want to put my dreams into actions and I want to try and  make it happen. I don't want to work for forty years in a job I hate and always be wondering what if. Granted it could all go wrong and I can learn that my dreams just cant be reached but surely I should take that chance while I'm young, I don't want to be filled with regret.


Some of the topics I want to cover are:
Hormones.
Body changes.
Periods.
Relationships.
Friends.
Family.

If you have any other suggestions then I would love to hear them. Please let me know in the comments.

YouTube Culture

Hello

Today I want to chat to you all about the YouTube culture. For people my age and younger, YouTube has become one of the biggest sources of visual media. Now I know YouTube is meant for videos, but I mean in the respect that people are building a following by uploading videos of themselves, they are creating a brand and getting hundreds of thousands of views each day. I think kids now spend more time glued to their laptop screens watching the latest Zoella video than they do on other media like TV.  

Don't get wrong, I can spend hours watching videos online from my favourite YouTubers but I think there should be an age that you cant watch it. I think its amazing the brands YouTubers have made for themselves but I just fear that this is giving young children and unrealistic view of life, and they want to be a YouTuber as a career. Now I think teenagers understand the work the goes into being a YouTuber as they grasp the concept of editing, filming and everything else that goes with creating content. Children under 10 are watching YouTubers and wanting to have that as a career without realising the amount of work that goes into keeping their brands and channels at such a high quality.

I think YouTube is a fantastic platform for people to share their work and for a lucky few, it has become their main income. I think people who have seen people like Zoe Sugg rise to fame through her channel have decided that they want that to, the trouble is we are going to have a whole new youtube generation that's filled with people who want one thing, and that's fame. Now all the best Youtuber stars never set out for fame, they started uploading as a hobby.

Because of this I feel like older people see this whole YouTube culture as nothing more than a hobby. They don't see why someone making videos can manage to make money and younger viewers think that they are rich just for recording a video. I'm not a YouTubeer but I seen enough to know that all of the Youtuber's are self taught in editing software, photography, lighting and writing. People like Louise and Zoe created their blogs where they clearly learnt about blog layout, making content that people wanted to read, networking and I feel like people just don't understand this. None of the current Youtube stars asked for fame, they started making videos as a hobby and because they are extremely likeable people, its just escalated into this new breed of celebrity's.

I think YouTube is such a great platform to share part of your life but I worry that it will influence children and we will end up with thousands of Zoella wanna Be's. It wont work simply because its already been done. Zoe is amazing but problem is shes already doing it. Do we want to see thousands of people making videos just for fame. Lets face it, after a few years of YouTuber's being in the spot light, the media will move on. The Youtuber's will remain successful but I feel like brands wont want to use anyone new. Advertisers have seen the viewers YouTuber's get and have jumped at the chance to work with them which is great, it means they products will reach new people. The issue is that in a few years time the advertisers will stick to the people they know can bring them attention.

I don't think YouTube is the place for young children, they are getting ideas of becoming YouTube famous without realising how much work goes into the content. What do you all think?

Superfans

Hello
So about a month ago I watched the documentary that Tom Felton did that looked into the Super fans. I found this really interesting and wanted to look at it from a different perspective. Tom looked at the super fans of Films starts but I want to look at the super fans of pop stars. 



I follow a lovely girl on twitter called Connie who is a very big fan of the McBusted boys, she meets them quite a lot and I wanted to know a bit more about it. Now I've seen Connie receive hate comments for waiting to meet McBusted and I don't think its fair, granted I know it must be upsetting to see someone meet your idol quite a lot but why should she receive hate for it. Connie kindly agreed to answer some of my questions and here are her answers.

When did you start meeting celebrity's on a regular basis?
15

Do you feel like you have a better relationship with the celebrity's you meet compared to others?
I'm close with the friends I go and meet them but I have a close bond with the people I meet.


Do you ever get bored of meeting the same people or do you just re live the excitement?
No it gets better and better each time and they just say stuff that honestly makes you happy inside


Why do you think you receive hate comments considering your not doing anything wrong?
I receive hate because people are jealous and if they had the chance they would do the same


Do the people you meet ever get annoyed with people waiting?
They never get angry, they always stop to chat and make the waiting worth wile


After meeting them so many times, have the nerves gone or are they still there?
The nerves are still there but I can talk to them more now and feel comfortable around them


Now Connie makes some good points in her answers. We can all get jealous and say how bad it is to spend our time waiting for our idols, but I guarantee that if we had the chance, we would do exactly the same thing. I think its okay to go and wait venues in the chance you could meet celebrity's because I think celebrity's expect to meet fans outside but I think its wrong when people go and wait outside their houses. I saw on twitter the other day, Alfie deyes said that fans were waiting outside his and Zoe's home. I think its wrong to do that, that's almost like stalking. There have to be boundary's between the fans and celerity's, they are people just like you and me. When does it become okay to sit outside their homes? 



I want to thank Connie for answering my question's and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments

D.I.Y | Old candle jars to cute storage pots

 Hello
I have been wanting to do this post for a few weeks now and I have finally got round to writing it. Now I really love candle jars like the large Yankee candles ones. About a year ago I got two large candles from a cheapy shop but they smelt disgusting. To be honest I only really got them for the jars. Now I wanted to make use of the lovely jars so I set myself the task of making something that I would love. And here's how I did it.

What you will need | 
1 Large candle jar (Any jar will do but that's what I used)
A knife.
Newspaper.
Hot water.
Nail varnish in the colour of your choice.

Now these might sound like rather odd things that I used but I will explain along the way.

Step 1 |
Lay out newspaper on the surface you are going to be using. This just helps to protect the surface from getting wax all over it. Get your candle jar and clear all the remaining wax out. You can car fully use your knife to carve out the wax. I'm just using a picture of a Yankee candle for decorative purposes.


Step 2 |
If there are any labels around the candle then peel them of and clean the jar of any residue that's left. On my jars the labels were printed onto it so I carefully used a knife to scratch the print off. Please be careful when doing this.

 Step 3 | 
Use some glass cleaner to clean your jars inside and out.


Step 4 | 
Get the lid of your jar and paint the inside of glass. I used some old nail varnish for these. I used a glittery Barry M and then did another coat of purple. For the green I used a gold sparkly nail varnish and use this mint colour. Now each coat took around half an hour to dry fully, so some patients in needed for this part.



 Step 5 | 
Once the paint is dry clean them one more time with glass cleaner and then leave them with the lid's off to air overnight. It will help take the smell of nail varnish away.

Step 6 | 
Pop in the bits and pieces you want to keep in your jars and pop them somewhere on display. I like to keep a collection of my nail varnishes in mine. I'm also going to clear one out to use it to store all my hair bands in. I always lose them so it will be good to know where they are.


I really hope you enjoyed that little post, let me know if you would like to see more DIY type posts in the future. If you liked this then leave a comment, share it or don't (No pressure).

Monday 11th May 2015 | Dream journal

Hello
I'm so sorry I haven't posted one of my dream journal in over a month! I just haven't been remember my dreams and I have been quite stress. When I'm stressed I either dream of the thing I'm stressed about, or I just don't dream at all.

So last night I had a bit of an odd dream. I was going shopping with my mum and my aunt at our local shopping centre. It wasn't like normal, the lights were off and the few lights that were on kept flickering. My dream then jumped ahead to me in my room. I had just woken up to see that I only had 10 minutes to get ready for work. I knew I wouldn't be able to make it but I still tried. I was walking the streets for ages, the area had changed and I was lost. I was panicking that I would be late for work and I couldn't get there. The last part of my dream was in my work place. I was clearing up the cups and plates from behind the dishwasher when my manger told me the name of someone new starting. It was a girl I knew from school who hated me, I just froze and didn't know what to do. I woke up after that and just felt I wanted to update this dream journal.

So I looked on Dreamforth to see what it said about my dream. here's what it said about shopping centres. Now I could only find so etching for the term mall which is just the American version of England's shopping centres. Here's what it said "To dream that you are at the mall implies that you are trying to create a favourable impression for somebody. The mall also represents that you covet and desire to acquire what your peers own." Now I wouldn't say that I'm trying to make a favourable impression of somebody, well not that I can think of. I also don't desire the things my friends have, I don't really think this part of the dream meant anything special.

Now I looked up about being late for work and here's what it said "To dream that you are late suggests apprehension for change in your life. It also indicates your ambivalence about conquering opportunities in real life situations.  To dream that you are tardy projects your feelings of unworthiness. It also means you get a sense that people do not support your participation in an endeavour; perhaps they do not see that you are mature enough to handle the problem. Moreover, you may be overwhelmed or hesitant about certain choices you should make that will affect your future.". Now I wouldn't say there's going to be any change in my life but I do feel like because I'm new at my work, people don't want or need me there.

The last part of my dream involved a girl from school. Now I looked to see what it said but I know exactly why I dreamt it. Now whenever I start something new, I always dream that someone who made my life miserable re appears. I guess it's just my mind trying to make me feel more afraid of what I'm about to do. I've had this type of dream before, when I started my first job I was so happy but I guess I just thought that something would ruin it. That's why I always dream things like this.

We'll kill you enjoyed this post. I had to write it on my iPad so I do apologise is auto correct has turned words into something really weird. It won't let me edit my post properly later on I will edit it properly but right now I'm off to work.
