Life Update | How Have I Been, Teespring, Blog...

June 30, 2016



I thought that I would write a little life update so that we could catch up a little! How does that sound?

Teespring
So if you didn't know, I sell bookish and blogger-ish shirts on Teespring. I try to make my shirts affordable within reason and I personally think that they are really good, but I designed them, so hopefully I would.
If you are interested in checking out my shirts (and I would really love that!), then please check out teespring.com/stores/creativityandcrazy
Selling has been a little slow, but I don't think I have personally been promoting them enough. I have been doing some research so I will be promoting them more soon.

Blog

I have been considering doing a real spring clean on my blog for a while. My very old posts from Rachel Rules The World and 45th Fashion Road don't really drive traffic anymore, and only by some heavenly chance they will ever again. I also need to delete dead links and other things, so I am going to start soon, if posts begin to disappear from a while ago, don't worry!

Also, if you have a request as to what you want to see more of, less of and of anything in general, I would love to hear your comments on my blog!

Hair

I don't really know where I was planning to go with this segment. I am well, I've got a job, so I am working now (finally). I also want to do my hair, I've seen some amazing ombre hair which I would love to braid, not really sure what colour to go for though!

What colour would you get?

EU Referendum

So if you are from the UK you would know that we have recently had a Referendum (a vote basically) so that we could decide whether or not to leave the EU.
I wasn't able to vote, but if I could I would have voted Remain, because we would have been able to reevaluate the clauses in which we are in the EU, and therefore potentially gained a stronger place.
So I don't agree with the majority vote who voted to leave (although, yes I do understand their views) I don't think it will get us anywhere by leaving. We are once again going to become one of the most monolingual, isolated countries in the world.
What erked me about the election was that I wasn't allowed to vote on my own future. The older the people go, the more voted leave, and I would understand that to be caused by a plethora of things, but it isn't fair that seeing as it is the future of my generation, that I wasn't allowed a voice. I really wish I was old enough, but it shouldn't be the case as it was my generation
This will affect the teaching services (there is already a shortage of teachers in the UK and sending them back to Europe won't do us any good) and I study two languages and a lot of my teachers are European and they are really good, and therefore don't really deserve to be forced to go to make space for jobs that no one wants to fill anyways. To me, that is very unfair. (but that's my opinion) and seeing as our education system is near enough to bust, we need the EU to supply us with workers for the fields we as a population aren't interested in.
I also disagree and would like the idea of some of the Vote Leave Campaign leaders running the country, I don't really want to discuss those views here though.
I've never really been that into politics as much, although I consider it a potential future prospect. That's my opinion and feel free to disagree. I am not a person who will drown out voices so mine can be heard.

Me

I added in this segment because I just thought about it.
Recently, I applied for a job within school. I was really excited and did my best to ensure that what I did surrounding it would show me to be a good student.
I was taken out around the first round of interviews for that job placement, which at the time really upset me. I found the majority of the people given the job undeserving, spoilt and almost went to the point of labelling my school as favouring those particular people (which in ways I still feel that they do).
I'm better now though. Two weeks ago, I would have been very upset and I was impulsive in my actions (which I now regret). But now I feel more open and happy, and I think that I learnt a serious life lesson and I've learnt something about myself.
No, there isn't an opportunity for me to get that place. But I am going to show my school want they are missing out on. I feel like I am being boastful in saying that I am a really good student, but I am and they really missed out. I felt robbed of my opportunity to speak and now I think that I understand why I was. It was my first chance to speak, but it won't be my last. I am not prepared to sit down and allow major decisions to go over my head.

I think thats all right now!

4 Chokers I'd love to own | Fashion Wishlist

June 22, 2016


Recently I have really been into chokers and necklaces. I don't have the nicest jewellery, a lot of it is old costume jewellery which I am not really into anymore from a while ago. I probably haven't been shopping for jewellery in particular (as well as clothes, hence the lack of fashion posts) for quite a while now. That means jewellery shopping time!

Last Minute Dad Gift Guide | Fathers Day Gift Ideas

June 14, 2016

Today I wanted to share some last minute gifts that you can get for your Dads, Uncles, Grandpas and more! I know Fathers Day isn't always for your Dads, it is for any family member that you have. This was requested by the brand Tommy John, a men's high end fashion brand, so thank you for your request!

1. Socks
Good Quality, dark coloured socks are a great universal gift, especially for any man in your life on Fathers Day. They are really useful and can have colourful flairs and twists for someone who wants some colour in their life.

2. Mugs and Flasks
If your Dad is in the go all the time, try a flask! Especially on chilly mornings,(or when you live in a country where you have torrential rain in mid June). Mugs are also a really good option for Dads who love a good cup of coffee in the evening too. They are also a very affordable gift, usually less than £10, so I would recommend them!

Personalised Vistaprint Mugs

3. Experience Gifts
Definitely I would recommend this one if the gift that you're looking for needs to be thoughtful and heartwarming! Experience gifts are fun and are memorable for those gifted, so check Groupon for good deals!

4. Slippers
If your Dad is the kind of man who likes to kick up his feet in the evening and relax then slippers or sliders are a great idea and will be a much appreciated one! These are quality, inexpensive and affordable for anyone!

M&M Matira Sliders White

5. Books
Even if you Dad isn't an avid reader, books and audiobooks are great gifts for Dads all around. I can't recommend what sort of book the man in your life in particular would like, but there are many options to pick! Try out Waterstones or Audible or visit a library for some recommendations.

I hope that you enjoyed this gift guide and found it useful!

I received this book in the form of an ARC free for review, however all opinions are my own and the review is completely unbiased.

You Know Me Well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour is an beautiful story of two people, Kate and Mark, who meet each other in a bar during Pride Week. It follows them as they become friends and face the trials of being in love for the first time together.
