I'M A TERRIBLE BLOGGER

Ugh, so I was on Bloglovin reading all these amazing blogposts and I couldn't help but to compare my blog ois other people's (I know big maitake but I couldn't help it) and for some strange. reason I felt the urge to write this down and share with the Internet in the hope of athe negativity going away (like that's gonna work). Now, I know I'm never going to have millions of followers and become the next Zoella and I am 110% ok with that but it doesn't mean I want to put everything I have into this blog. Firstly my photos are terrible and most of the time only only use photos when I have to because I don't have a really nice camera and I take my photos of my father old iPad so the quality is a little meh in comparison to others. I also have no idea how to edit photos ... Seriously if you have any tips please let me know. The problem is the picture is the first thing you look at on a blogpost and if it's terrible (or missing) you're going to think that person is lazy or just incredibly stupid and untalented. 

Secondly, I don't have the time to post everyday to keep people interested. I'm lucky to post four times a month. I'm an 18 year old girl trying to finish college and get into (hopefully a deccent) uni whilst trying to earn money in a terrible part time job that demands too much of me. It's very difficult juggling everything and you want me to add blogging on top? Mate you are having a laugh. I don't not handle stress well. I actually have a lot of respect for daily blogger who have full time jobs/edu action because it's very difficult to come up with creative ideas and post daily and earn money and learn (hence why it's been about a month since my last post) It's a struggle. 

Also with blogging becoming more mainstream, how is it possible to come up with new and creative ideas. I like posting reviews, tags and terrible stories from my life which, let's face it, is not the most new and creative thing out there. So when I see bloggers coming up with really cool and new posts, part of me wants to read the whole thing, follow them and binge read every post, whilst the other part of me wants to slap them for coming up with that idea before me. it sucks having no creativity.

I also find several topics that I would love to talk about that are slightly controversial (and we all know how easily offended everyone is on the internet) and I can't be dealing with those hate comments. I'm actually quite afraid of what people will say so I chicken out of doing it. Do you know how many times I have deleted posts because I don't think people would like to read it/ruin my life with hate comments. ughhhhh why. 

Ok so leading onto my last point is that I'm broke. And before you say "you don't need money to be a blogger" let me explain where I'm coming from. Firstly, I can't afford my own URL (hence the crappy blogspot.co.uk) which I feel makes my blog look cheap and unprofessional. In the future I would love to own my URL but it's expensive and someone who plans on going to uni in two years that will probably never happen. There are so may products that I see and I think "oh damn that would be so cool to review" but all the products everyone wants to read about are super expensive which is why all my reviews are mainly drugstore. I earn £6 and hour so I'd have go work five hours to afford a £30 product and before anyone says "that's not many hours" I have to be necessary items such as school books, my phone bill, Netflix ect. so working less than ten hours a week ain't gonna pay for that. No sir. 

So I'm not trying to make excuses for my terrible blogging schedule but I just wanted too see if anyone relates to my points. Ugh so much to do and no free time! 
 
Let me know in the comments advice for me or (to make me feel better) the bits of blogging you struggle with.

DRAG RACE ALL STARS 2 REVIEW

*contains spoilers*

Heyyyyy guys! Ok so I've never done a TV show review but I thought I'd make an exception because I've never been so excited for a TV show. So anyone that knows me knows that I am a Rupauls Drag Race superfan. I've seen every season at least three times (I have a lot of free time and not a lot of friends) and I was so excited by the line up. So going into this I had pretty much made up my mind that I wanted Katya to win but I was also kind of rooting for Adore and Alaska as well. I knew it was going to be close because all the queens are so good and so talented.

So to start off lets talk about the entrance outfits. I'm just going to say I wasn't really a fan of Detox's look, it was just very meh to me and I think she could of done better. I didn't really like Coco's either because the hat was a huge distraction but I loved the mirror, I think it just shows she has a sense of humour and is making fun of her mistakes. I really like Phi Phi's look because I, a huge comic book nerd and the riddler is on of my favourite DC villains so I was super impressed. And her line linked with character which I loved. I was also a huge fan of Roxxxy's dress because that is something I would totally wear. I think it showed her figure nicely and it was just amazing. I also really liked Katyas outfit because it was a different version of her look from season 7 which I loved and it suited her Russian character very well. I also loved Adore outfit because it was, again something I would wear ( I'm either a gothy punk or super girly .... no inbetween). 

So moving in to the main challenge which was the talent show extravaganza. Andddd to make thing more interesting the winner gets eliminate another queen *gasp* which wasn't a huge shock because that was annoyed in the trailer. If you want people to be surpriSed actually surprise them (I know it's a difficult thing to understand). Anyway, first off, I think they were super harsh on Adore. I know they all (with a few exceptions) performed well but I think she deserved to be safe. Her voice is so good and I don't think her outfit was that bad. It reminded me of her black and white look for the advert challenge and she won that challenge. But anyway you can't please everyone, espically Michelle (like I love her but damn girl). I think Phi Phi and Coco deserved to be there because they were defiantly the weakest during the show. Personally, if I was Coco I would of done a fierce lipsync and she probably would of one. So moving on to the top two. I was surprised with Tatiana because (just like Phi Phi and Roxxxy's) I thought she was a bitch in her season and I was so happy when she was elimated and I was actually very surprised she wasn't like that in this season. When they said her talent was spoken word I was like 'well we know who's going' but I was surprised. Did she deserve to be in the top two and not Alaska .... Maybe not. I think that Roxxxy was deserving to win. She looked amazing during the show and she deserved to win that lipsync (which was to my queen Taylor ... omg I died) and I think she was very fair in her choice of elimation. I was very surprised she chose to play fairly and elimate the weakest queen and I did agree with her.... for once. I'm joking. I've been very suprised with Phi Phi and Roxxxy and I actually can't wait to see them being their non comeptive selves. 

Are any of you Drag race fans? If so what did you think of the first episode of All Stars 2? Also what was you favourite season (mine was season 6), let me know in the comments.

I NEARLY QUIT BLOGGING

So, if any of you have read my recent blogposts (If you haven't I don't blame you) you might know that I've hit a slump with blogging recently. It got so bad that a few days ago I was ready to delete my blog and be done with it. I got as far as deleting my twitter account (that's I've reactivated). The problem is I used to read blogs and get inspiration from other bloggers. For example one of my favourite bloggers is Rachel Coco I've watch her become popular (in my eyes) and meet people through her blog. This made me want to be like her in a way and it pushed me to write more and I enjoyed it because I felt like I was part of a community. However, recently I haven't been doing these things and I started to think I was just writing these posts for myself and no one was reading them. In crawled self doubt and I started to think what's the point. If no ones reading my posts why bother. I'm never going to be like Rachel so why bother. I even got as far as deactivating (then reactivating) my twitter account. It took me a few days to realise that all the things I had previously said don't matter. Because the truth is I wanted to become a 'blogger' so badly that I was willing to post about things that didn't interest me and that is what got me down. I was also comparing myself to people and I realise now that I am my own person. I don't care if no ones reading I want to start writing things that I want to share and (in some cases) write about things I can't tell anyone. Things I can't say out loud to get things off my chest. So to all the small and new bloggers out there stop looking at the numbers. If you want o become the next Zoella then that's the wrong reason to start blogging. Don't get me wrong, that would be nice but if you have that attitude you will hate it and you will see blogging as a chore rather than something you love. Trust me. If I have learnt anything from my two years of blogging is that you should write your blog for you and on one else.

So this means I'm keeping my tiny space on the internet. I'm not going to be posting as often but I'm going put more effort in to my posts. This still means I'm going t be posting beauty  reviews because I love to do that (sorry if you hate that).

Have you ever hit a slump with blogging, let me know in the comments.

p.s. Rachel, if your reading this I love you and your content girl and I hope that didn't come off as shadey.

A LEVEL RESULTS 2016

So I'm just going to put this out there, I think exams are stupid. They test your memory rather than your knowledge and understanding of your subject. Unfortunately, much to my beliefs in order to get to uni I have no choice in the matter. So results day was a few days ago and I was freaking out (internally obviously - never let them see you sweat!!) because ,much to my heartbreak, this year has been my backup plan as I didn't really want to fail my first year of college. I mean overall I was much happier with my subject choices and just with life in general but it still would of been nice to have passed with all of my friends. But anyway I thought I'd share my results and feelings because I have a few things to say about them that I maybe can't say out loud. So I got ABC (which is better than DUU which I got last). A in EPQ, B in geography and C in environmental studies. I'm over the moon with EPQ because I worked so hard on that but I was little bit disappointed with the other two. The truth is I had been getting A's in those subjects all year. Don't get me wrong, I could of gotten worse grades but I know that I could of done better. I want to study Environmental at uni so I would want at least a B. I feel like I worked so much harder than a C and to me that's disappointing. \Also completely off this subject, can we make it illegal to brag about your results/uni offers on facebook because when I failed last year that was the hardest part. If I care enough about you to want to know your results... I'll ask. Please don't rub it in because, like I said before, exams aren't a measure of intelligence. There are some people that crumble under the pressure but are super smart and have common sense. You are literally bragging about your memory. Ugh. Anyway, back onto what I was originally talking about, I didn't want to say these things to anyone because I'm happy I passed (finally) but it just sucks that I didn't get my ideal grades. I Ideally need BBB so I'm going to have to work even harder next year.

Were you guys happy with your results, let me know in the comments.
