Saturday With The Gals

​If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen that a few weekends ago me and a couple friends did the ceremonial burning of the books and revision we used throughout the year. 


It was just me and about 5 other friends sat in someone’s back garden reminiscing over the final years of school, the good, the band and all the weird mixed emotions in between.  We spent majority of the night just talking and sharing memories while burning away the books that got us through our GCSEs and essentially all the knowledge that we learned in the two years leading up to the exams. 


The outfit I was wearing was stylish yet casual enough for a one off night with my friends. The top was a one off charity shop buys that I got my mom to crop and hem to give it that 90’s look. You can get cropped shirts with cool prints/strips like mine at Chinese Laundry, they’ve got two shops that I know of one based in Hull and the other in York so if you were thinking of purchasing a cropped shirt, I’d suggest them or other vintage shops on your area. Chinese Laundry have a website as well so if you want to see what else they’ve got going on here’s the link (www.chinese-laundry.co.uk) The jeans I think I’ve mentioned in another blog post were Riley jeans from Matalan that I cut myself, but were originally inspired by Caitlin Heath on Instagram (caitlinheathxo) who bought a pair of already ripped jeans from Missguided, so if you don’t want to rip them yourself you can get them from there.

Last Day of High School 

Friday, 17th of June 2017. I’ve finished, that’s it high school is over! Those 5 years flow by so quickly, from first starting school being so scared to move up to a big school and only having a few friends to being in my final year stressing about GCSEs and prom.It was definitely a difficult day for everyone, whether they realised it or not. I think for me it was more difficult leaving the teachers that supported me and stuck by me for 5 years and being able to see my friends everyday and being surrounded by people I know everyday. I’m excited for future prospects, to go to college and meet new people who want to study the course and are interested in it. 

(K + L – February 2016)(The OG’s- March 2016)(Post 5SOS w/ Tal- May 2016) (ICT before Summer- July 2016) (Freedom Festival- September 2017) (Blood Brothers in York- November 2016)(New Years Party- 2017) (Minion Party- March 2017) (East Park on the Last Day- June 2017) 

The past 5 years been a rollercoaster of mixed emotions. I mean when you look back at the petty arguments and how upset you got over the smallest things it seems so stupid, like I remember being in Year 7 and falling out with someone I thought was my best friend over a red pen,like how stupid is that? I’ve grown so much as person while being at that school, I’ve gone from being the shy kid who sat at the back of the class to someone who’s secure with themselves and knows what they want and don’t want from life. I have experienced being surrounded by people who just put you down and just aren’t about what you’re about and I’ve got rid of the toxic people in my life and gained people that love and support me.


I also have to give a major shout out to the teachers who made sure I got through my GCSES without a complete meltdown and reassuring me that I would be able to make it. Though there were a few subjects that I definitely wish I could avoid, there were also subjects that I loved and that was because of the teachers. So I want to thank them putting in an effort to make the lessons enjoyable and looking out for me, making sure I understood what I needed to do and was confident going into my exams. I cannot express how thankful I am for everything they’ve done for me, and I hope they know I appreciate them. 

(RE – around March 2016) 

For everyone still in high school, my only advice is don’t stress out to much or be afraid to be yourself! Take a break and just enjoy the moments because before you know it, it’ll all be over and you’ll be moving on to the next stage of your life. 

Also I know your teachers make out as if your exams are the be all or end all but they’re not, you’ll get into college and you’ll have a life just do your best! That’s all you can do, that’s all they can ask for and whatever happens at the end of it know that you’ve done all you can do and that you should be proud of yourself because those grades do not define who you are! 

And if you are stressing out of feel like you need someone to talk to, please find someone, your teachers are there to help you and so are your friends don’t let it all build up and get to much for you! Please be aware that there are many forms of help like  anti- bullying and Mind which helps with mental health support. Your heads of year, your form tutors, in my school there was a school nurse and teachers specifically there to talk to if you felt you needed too. Please just make sure your mental health is a priority and if you see someone who’s been looking sad and is not being themselves, check in on them especially during exam time.

Finally, thank you to all the people who have come in and out of my life all I want  for you is love, happiness and success. We all made it through 5 years of what we all at some point considered the worst years of our lives and stripping as our only option, I’m kidding…..Only slightly. We’ve done it! 2012- 2017!

Movies to see Summer 16.

Follow My Bloglovin 

If live in the UK like me you’ve just broke up for your Summer Holidays which last around 6 weeks, give or take a week. What better way to kick off summer then with a blog post of movies to see this summer? 

1. Ghostbusters 

If you’re like me and was  dying to see this movie since the trailer for released this will be at the top of your to-do list. I definitely recommend getting a friend and going to see it. The female leads in this movie kick ass, it’s funny and spooky at the same time with a great cast. I’ve loved Ghostbusters since I was like 5 after a levitating Sigourney Weaver scared me shitless and I think this re-boot is amazing. I’m not saying it’s better than the original but it’s damn close.

2. Suicide Squad 

Suicide Squad comes out on the 5th of August and it’s another one I’ve been dying to see since I heard about it. The cast for the movie are all incredible actors from Jared Leto and Margo Robbie as The Joker and Harley Quinn to new actress Cara Delevinge as Enchantress. I’ve always kind of been an anti-hero kinda gal, so this movie is pulling at my heart strings. A little trouble never hurt nobody.

3.Deadpool

As if I didn’t love Ryan Reynolds enlighten, he had to go out and play Deadpool. Another snarky comic book antihero that had me in dying of laughter, well done Marvel – These so called superhero’s really need to step up their game and be just a little more irresponsible.

4. Finding Dory

The sequel to one of my all time favourite childhood films,Finding Nemo.Its another one I recommend to see, it’s a continued journey on repaying favours like Dory helped Marlin find Nemo its now their turn to help Dory find her family. 

5. The Shallows

So from the trailer, it seems like Blake Livley’s Characters a boss ass who survives a shark attack while visiting what’s called as “paradise”.Seems like a good movie, definitely one that I’m going to be seeing when it comes out in Juneo

Bring on the rest of Summer 2k16, follow my  socials if you want to be kept in the loop!-K
