June Favourites


I didn't post last week (if anyone actually noticed) because I've been feeling really stressed out recently and yeah. Anyway, I thought I'd do a June Favourite's post because I've never actually done a montly favourites and I've been loving a few things this month, so I thought I'd share them with you. 


My first favourite is this nail varnish. It's from Avon and I can't remember what exact shade it is in, but it's a gorgeous mint green colour and I really love it. 

My next favourite is the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. It gives a lot of length and volume and really seperates my lashes. I got it in Superdrug and they were doing a deal, I think it was 2 for £10 so my mum and I both got one. I think it's the perfect every day mascara and I would definitely recommend it. 

Books, TV shows and Music

My book favourite is 'Looking For Alaska' by John Green. I've read this book before but I recently re read it and I forgot how much I loved it. It's about a guy called Miles and he's bored of his life at home, so he decides to go to a boarding school in Alabama to 'seek his Great Perhaps'. There he meets Alaska and his whole world is turned around. Also, fun fact (not sure it's actually fun but whatever), the book is split in two parts: before and after, so that's cool too. 

My next favourite is Orphan Black. I started it on Friday and I finished season 1 on Sunday and OH MY GOD. I have no words. It is literally amazing and if you're looking for a new TV show to watch, then Orphan Black is it. SERIOUSLY GO AND WATCH IT! 

My music favourite this month is the album 'Like I Used To' by Lucy Rose. I recently re discovered this and fell in love with it all over again. It is a very acoustic type album and I always like to have it on in the background. If you like this type of music, then I would definitely recommend this. 


My final favourite this month is this candle. It's in the scent vanilla and it's from Wilkinsons. It literally smells amazing and I love it so much. I think it was either £1 or £2, so it's also very cheap! 

So that's all my favourites for this month. I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments what you've been loving this month. Thank you for reading!

Hever Castle


I wasn't quite sure what to do for this blog post, but then I found these photo's I took from last month and I thought I'd share them with you. 

A few weeks ago, in the May half-term, I went to Hever Castle with my mum, my brother and my two sisters. The weather was absolutely awful, it was pouring down with rain for most of the day (we were completely soaked when we got back home!). Despite the terrible weather, we still had a good day. The gardens were really beautiful, and the castle was lovely too. The quality of a few of the pictures aren't that great because my phone died whilst we were there and I had to use my sister's phone (her phone camera isn't the best). But I thought I'd share them anyway. 


Thank you for reading and I hope you're having a lovely day!

Things I Want To Do This Summer


So, I was reading Tanya Burr's blog and she did a post like this last month and today is a really lovely day and it's really starting to feel like Summer, so I thought why not do a blog post on the things I want to do this Summer? Wow, that sentence was really long. 

Go for a walk in the mornings when it's nice. I think that taking a walk in the mornings would really start my day off and just be a good way to clear my mind before the rest of my day begins. 

Read more books. Like I said in my last post, I really love reading but I find that I don't make enough time for it. So this summer I'm going to make time to read, even if it's only for ten minutes before I go to sleep. 

Go outside more. I'm always inside on my laptop and phone and I really do need to be outside more. Even if it's just for walks, or a picnic with my family, it'll still get me outside instead of sitting in bed on Twitter, Netflix and YouTube all day. (oops haha) 

Make a summer scrapbook. I think this would be a really fun thing to do since it could be like your little summer memory book. It would also be cool to look back on at the end of the summer or even at the end of the year and see what you were up to. 

Take more pictures. Pictures are moments in time that have been frozen, preserved forever. You will never get the same moment again. The pictures that we take are our memories and they allow us to go back and experience the feelings we once had when we captured them split seconds in time, good or bad. I just think it's really important that you take a lot of pictures and I will definitely be doing that this summer. (wow, that got really deep) 

So those are my plans so far. I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know what you want to do this Summer in the comments down below. Thank you for reading!

A Friendly Introduction

Hello, World! (or whoever is actually reading this!) 

I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, but I've always been too nervous. However, I've been recently reading a lot more blogs and I really like writing, so I figured why not? 

I want this blog to be somewhere I can write about whatever I want. I want to feel as if someone, somewhere is actually reading about what I have to say and (maybe?) enjoying it. 

Since this is my first post, I thought you might want to know a little about me. 

My name is Shannon, I am fourteen years old and I live in the UK. I really like writing and reading, although I don't do neither nearly as much as I should. I watch YouTube and Netflix way too much, but what teenager doesn't? I'm obsessed with 'The Vampire Diaries' (that's all I'm going to say or this blog post will end up being way too long because I love the show so much, I could literally talk about it for hours on end!). I love watching the sunset. I want to travel the word someday. And lastly, I adore taking pictures, so I'll probably be posting lots of those too. 

I guess that's all for now. Thank you for reading (if anyone actually has been reading) and let me know what you think in the comments below (if you want to, that is). I'll see you soon!
