quote, you, and be image

Hey Lovelies,

This is just one of those days where I feel the urge to pump out a load of MOTIVATION!
I was just thinking about life (yes, instead of revising), when I thought I world is messed up. Not in terms of politics, global warming or poverty (which are really serious, don't get me wrong), but in terms of beauty.

Hey Lovelies,

I can't believe it's gotten to the point where my first Christmas post is in the middle of December, but here we are, so we might as well start with a December Playlist post!

Lifestyle | Perfect Tee Quotes

Hey Lovelies,

I'm sorry for my erratic blogging schedule, I promise in the new year to post at least once a week.
Okay, with apologies out of the way, back in March, I did a post about My Favourite Quotes and they were (mostly) serious, so today's post are quotes I would definitely have printed on a T-shirt!

Photoshoot Saturday!

Hey Lovelies,

I know, I know. It's been 3 whole weeks since my last post and I'm sorry. I've been so busy AND I had a slight case of writer's block, but I'm finally back!
Back in July, my friends and I got together for an amateur photo shoot! It was meant to be a fashion post, but we got carried away taking ridiculous photos, that I didn't actually get round to asking everyone how they would describe their style, where they got their clothes from, etc.... So here is a round up of the best most style worthy pictures!

Why the future isn't so bright (if you don't know what you're doing)

Hello Lovelies,

So, most of us don't really think about the future. We tend to live in the now and don't really contemplate life when we're old and too frail to make up complicated routines to the new One Direction song (by the way, Drag Me Down is really good!). I was told recently that 53% of women and 63% of men have started planning for their retirement! This is not nearly enough as it will be harder to come into money when you are no longer working. So for today's post I 'm going to talk about my wonderful aunt and how she saves money, not necessarily for retirement, but just to keep a budget.

The Struggles Of Being Left Handed...

Hello Lovelies,

I am so sorry for my absence, but I've been so busy since school began. I promise to make time in my schedule to post every week. If I mess up in the first month, you have permission to call me out. Being back at school reminded me off all the problems that I, as a left hander, have to face on a regular bases. Being part of the 12% of the population that are left handed definitely makes you look at the world differently. Everything is make for the majority right handers (now known as Bob). *sigh* So here is a list of SOME of the hardships that left handers have to face...

1 | Writing in spiral notepads (or binders)
There are 2 problems here that I have to deal with. Not only does my hand keep hitting the binding in the middle of the notepad, causing me to write awkwardly, but when writing (and it doesn't matter whether it is a fountain pen or a ball point pen), my hand never EVER fails to smudge my work. I regularly have black marks on my pinky as evidence. I can't even begin to tell you how annoying this is.

Lifestyle | Being A Teenager # 1

Hey Lovelies,

After surfing the Internet (I shouldn't have time to, but...), I came across this photo and it made my laugh hysterically. Mainly because I thought it was just me. My earphones are permanently jammed into my ears, so counting songs has become useful for everything. 'Have you revised quantum physics in Latin?' 'Oh Yeah, I remember doing it while listening to Pretty Hurts by Beyonce!' Anyhow, it gave me the idea to talk about being a teenager. So here I am, ready to destroy the dreams of pre-teens around the world (sorry)!

Music | My August Playlist

Hey Lovelies,

It's the end of another month, which means another of my playlists!

Lifestyle | Back To School Outfit!

Hey Lovelies,

I know I haven't posted in 2 weeks and I'm sorry. I've been so busy doing NCS -The Challenge and results day that I had no time to blog. Forgive me?

Yesterday, I realized that there was only a week of the holidays left. In my opinion, this was the fastest summer holiday ever. I literally feel as if I only started the holiday 2 weeks ago, but I am happy to go back to school. Yes, I know, I'm an absolute weirdo. Who actually WANTS to go back to school? But, in September, I start sixth form! I know the work will be way harder than GCSEs, but I know I can keep up with everything if I work hard.

The Audacity!

Hello Lovelies,

As you all know, I was gone for a week, but now I'm back from my "exotic" trip to Wales. The trip itself was okay, but the people I've met are awesome! Like proper amazing.

Anyway, I've realised that I have stopped doing rant posts, so here I am to put a stop to that. This rant is solely focused on the new London buses.

Lifestyle | Favourite Instagram Accounts

Hey Lovelies,

Yes, I'm sorry. I know that you are well aware of my addiction to Instagram, so this is my last post relating to the topic. Probably. But you never know. So today is about my favourite Instagram accounts.

I love this account because they post lovely pictures of anybody who uses the #brandyusa could appear on their account. It showcases the photography and modelling talents of the budding.

This account makes me laugh. You can always find relatable posts that make you feel as if you are not the only person in the world that does something. Like sing badly.

3 | Heidi Petite

I love Heidi's account because all of her posts are colourful and who doesn't love colour?

4 | Isabella
Isabella's posts are perfect if you are in need of fashion inspiration or you just want to sigh at her seemingly infinite wardrobe.

5 | Meli Lau

I follow this account because of the unique style that Meli has and she's so pretty!

So, this is my top 5 favourite Instagram accounts. I hope you love them as much as I do! Follow me on Instagram at mylifeinatab.

What are your favourite Instagram accounts?

Love, Peace and Snickers xx }|{

P.S. Quote of the day: I'm not addicted to twitter. I only tweet when I have time: lunch time, break time, off time, this time, that time, any time, all the time.

Take my Survey

Aloha Lovelies, Please take my survey! I want to know what you guys think of my blog!

Lifestyle | My Favourite Apps

Hey Lovelies,

I hate to be a stereotype, but I am the epitome of teenhood. I'm always on my phone, no matter what. When I wake up in the morning, I immediately check my social media and throughout the day, I constantly check to see if anything life-changing has happened within the space of 10 minutes. So here are my list of apps that I am obsessed with:

Music | My June Playlist

Hey Lovelies,

Do you know those days or weeks or even months where you have a whole bucket-load of music on your phone, but you keep listening to the same playlist every single time? That is me. So here is my June playlist!

Lifestyle | Prom!

Hey Lovelies,

Sorry for the delay, I'm still trying to slip back into blogging. So, as you know, I had my prom last week Friday. I was skeptical at first, but it turned out to be a great event! So, without further ado, here are my prom photos!

Lifestyle | The Creative Blogger Award

Hey Lovelies,

I AM BACK! I have finally, FINALLY, finished my GCSEs and I feel amazing. I'm dreading results day though. I have nightmares about seeing ungradeable for every subject. Can you imagine? 2 years studying a subject and you don't even get the grade?

So while I was gone, I was nominated for the Creative Blogger Award by Zoe Marie!

I designed this myself!

Lifestyle | Blog Essentials

Blog Essentials

Hey Lovelies,

Every blogger has a list of equipment they need before they can start a blog post. Whether it's hot chocolate or their warm, fuzzy slippers, a blogger can't start until everything is in order. It's the same with life in general. I, for one, can't leave my house without my phone or my lip balm.

Blog Anniversary!

Hey Lovelies,
If you cannot tell already, it is my Blog's Birthday! I can't believe it's been two years. I very rarely have the patience to finish what I started, but this must be one of the rare occasions.  I have 100+ posts and most of them (from what I remember) are just random pieces of craziness that I deemed acceptable to post. But, as I've grown up a little, I'm not too sure. So I've decided for my Blog's Birthday post to reminisce on old posts.

The 100

Hey Lovelies,

I promised and now I deliver. The 100 is an American post-apocalyptic drama television series on The CW. It is based on a book of the same name by Kass Morgan. So, all formalities are out of the way...

Lifestyle | Life Is Beautiful


Hey Lovelies,

Sorry for the late post. GCSE's keeps getting in the way. You all know I love quotes. I end every post with one and a few simple words can always make my day. So, I've compiled a list of my top 11 quotes.

Fashion | Your Light Is Ultraviolet...

Hey lovelies,

So this is my first ever OOTD post! I don't know if I'll do anymore, mainly because I usually dress for comfort. Style too, but mostly comfort. I'm still trying to balance it.

Happy Valentines Day!

Hey Lovelies,

It's that time of year again. Chocolate is exchanged, cards are handed out and kisses are given in abundance.

HTML for your blog!

Hey lovelies,

Since I started this blog, I've always been finding ways of improving it. At first, everything was crazy! I had a purple checked background and my sidebar was cluttered. Shudder. So I've decided to share my secrets with all of you!

Review | Studio London Vintage Minx

Hey lovelies,

So, for Christmas, I got a nail varnish set as a Secret Santa present. If you don't know already, I love to paint my nails. I don't know why, but they are just so cute in their little bottles!

Guest Post | Being A Blogger

Hey lovelies,

So guess what? I have got my first guest blogger ever in the year (and a bit) that I've had this blog. Her name's Vicky and you can find her over at VVNightingale.

At the beginning of last year, I took the plunge and decided to start blogging. When I started I felt like I had no idea what the hell I was doing. I was excite, scared and apprehensive at the same time. It felt like I couldn't really let my guard down, I was so worried about what people would think of me! Eventually I ended up giving my blog up because I hadn't really found my voice yet. 

Fast forward 3 months, and I suddenly started to realise what I wanted to blog about and that I shouldn't be afraid to have my voice and use it. From that point onwards, blogging became so much more exciting. It became my main creative outlet and a platform for me to express and share my passion for all things beauty, fashion and homeware! 

The thing that I most enjoy about blogging is being a part of the community. You only have to start socialising to realise how great and supportive the blogging community can be. 

My best advice to any new bloggers would be, first and foremost, just be yourself and blog about things you love. That's the most important thing (by a long way)!

Lifestyle | Brownies Make Life Good

Hey lovelies.

So today, after a long and hard day at school, I decided to make brownies. When I say make, I use the term loosely. This was the most hassle free recipe I've ever followed and I made it in 10 minutes!

Lifestyle | New Year's Resolutions!

Hey Lovelies,

Happy New Year's! 2014 2015 is hopefully going to be an awesome year and I will try and enjoy it! So, a new year means new resolutions and a new me and all that jazz. I know you've heard that whole spiel before, so sorry, but this probably won't be the last time you hear it!
