My 2015.

Image
2015 has definitely been a year to remember, from having no friends to the best friends, crying at College to passing with flying colours; this year has been a whirl wind of emotions and events. I believe on this blog that I highlight my highs and lows, no matter how silly they are.
I passed my driving test which was one of the happiest days of my life, I don't think I've ever felt prouder than holding that certificate in my hands. You'll always pass eventually, no matter how long it takes you. Don't give up!This blog got 6000 (It's now currently 6895) subs, which is amazing. I made this blog to tell people how I felt, to express myself and share my ranting moments and lush highs, to be called 'Passive Aggressive' and to be slagged off at dinner tables throughout Cumbria. I went to Paris, Disney Land and seen the Eiffel Tower (That's another story, check out my 18th birthday post for more on that). A dream came true when I was able to go to Paris to cele…

Christmas want list- 2015

Image
Christmas is on the horizon and I'm getting very excited, Costa have their Christmas drinks out (minus the Hot Apple, to mine and my Mams great disappointment). Around this time everyone tells me "Anna, I just don't know what to get you for Christmas!!" "Money, I'm poor."

Below I have created my top 5 things I wish to receive off the big fella, I don't care if these are a bit strange, I want them, okay??

Unicorn
Okay, so maybe this one is the most unlikely present I will receive but a girl can wish! I love Unicorns as you all may (or should) know. I have 5 Unicorn teddies on my bed at all time, apart from when Austin is staying because he just throws them on the floor- how rude! I would be a very happy girl if I could pet a Unicorn and call it mine, so Santa, you better get your thinking cap on!

Urban Decay ultimate palette
This palette has been floating around the internet for a while now, I hate a very known love at relationship with Urban Decay but…

I do Engineering, but I'm still straight.

I get a lot of messages, emails and comments about my sexuality; because I do engineering. People new to my course asked me and I can see why, but that doesn’t mean it’s right to ask.At college I am the scruffiest person ever, I’m lazy, I talk about un-lady things and I quite happily eat a burger, chicken nuggets, strawberry milkshake and a mcflurry in front of the boys. But I’m still straight.I am basically one of the lads and I get told things which are disgusting and probably shouldn’t be told to girls, but I’m still straight.I wear docs, a staple piece of footwear which I love and I get recognized by. I wear black but I’m not a Goth, I wear docs but I’m still straight.90 per cent of my friends are boys, they know me better than anyone, I hang round with them, fist pump them and tell them off when they swear in front of me, but I’m still straight.I genuinely do have a strange passion towards designing buildings and bridges, I love working out mathematical equations about loads and …

6000 SUBS!!

This post probably won't make sense, sorry. Even though I've been blogging under the name as Unicorns and Fairy Dust for a long time, I still find it weird that people read it. I find it even weirder when people read it who I'd never expect to. I still think they are taking the piss when they said it was a good post this week or they message me to tell me that the post really helped them.

I'm no way Zoella or Gabby or even Tanya burr. I'm Anna and I blog about things which get on my nerve and the fact that I'm fat.
This post is a thank you post, a post to say how much I love you all and how much you all have changed my life. Yeah it is nice to have this as part of my job, it's lovely to get free stuff but I never set up this blog to get that, I set this up to help you. If you're reading this and contemplating whether or not to make a blog, do it. Even if you never publish a post, just do it. I have 30 unpublished posts because I know they are just rant…

Having 2 friends is ok, trust me.

I’m not sure where this blog is going to take me, I’m not sure of the content or how I’m going to word it. One thing I am sure of is that this post is going to be a appreciation post, a post to celebrate the fact that I have 2 friends, and I’m okay with that. I’m okay with having two friends because of what they really are, my friends. These are the two girls who I can text at half 8 at night, on a Wednesday and 20 minutes later we are revving my engine far too loud whilst I try to rap. These are the people who I twine to, get advice from and get me very drunk at any possible second. These are the girls who I send ugly snapchats to, screen shots of strange and a bit sick things to. I don’t need 20 friends; I need 2 friends who I can rely on no matter what. Now, to the people who have made me feel this way, to the people who had the power to ruin me, to break me; and to make me feel like I had made the worst possible choice. To the people who have pretended to be my friend, who have let …

Blog Advice | What, How, When?

Image
I recently got my blog seen/ noticed and since then I have been bombarded by emails and companies wanting me on their side. I didn't say no. It's hard, exhausting and sometimes I want to quit, but I never.  A few people have asked me to explain to them how to get noticed, so this really makes the prefect blog post!
Really, find out what you want to blog about. If that's beauty, lifestyle, photography, tips, I love cats appreciation, food or anything you want. You need to figure out what you want to be known as.Find a blog site which is easy to use and free. Don't be fooled with sites which asks you to pay (other than WordPress which can be free, but this site has packages.) Some good ones to use are either blogger (which I use), WordPress, which many people use, Webly and many others. I signed up to a few and played around until I found one I was comfortable with.Get a note pad. I have a note pad which I carry around and write down any future blog post ideas or anything…

Having a step family.

My mam got married to James (shoutout to James, peace) and with him came two children, Theo and Olivia. This meant we had to move house, move in together and share the same bathroom. As you can may tell, I hated the idea and ordered that I would have the largest room in the house. Having step siblings can be the best and worst thing to happen. Suddenly I had these two kids in my home, using my bathroom, sharing my bread and stealing my Nutella. This is what I've learnt whilst having a step family.
Number one. Never leave Nutella unattended, it will be eaten. Number two. You will always have to queue for the toilet in the morning, you just gotta pray it's for a wee. Number three. Accept that the toilet seat will always be up when any boys have had a wee, just accept it and move on. Number four. Just because one might be around the same age does not mean you have to be friends. Trust me, I don't even speak to my step sister. Number five. The first Christmas together will be the w…

UPDATE!

Image
I like doing updates, it means I don't have to tell people over and over again about the same old crack. Just a few updates about life, University and this blog. Enjoy!

Life in general.

Now I'm 18 (Did I mention that I'm 18? Well, I'm 18) I can legally go out and get drunk, Isn't that right Mam? I bought a shirt dress from Select because it was cheap and for once I actually felt nice in something. I just felt grown up and I looked my age for once. I had a great night which was filled with Private Bin, fish bowls and me getting stalked by my ex. Classic night out! I was going to take loads of pictures but we just had a really good night and I hardly looked on my phone! Cheers for the great night Caitlin and Jade, sorry about them photos which I 'made' you look at!


The hair of doom.

Okay.. Now don't all shout at me but.. ikindofbleachedbyhairandnowitsgreen.. Okay I'm sorry. My hair faded to this pink/grey colour which, if it was all the same colour woul…

Look at me now- One year on.

Image
I often spend most of my nights looking at old photos because I have no friends and there is a limit of how much Netflix you can watch without going crazy.

Timehop reminds me every day how much I've grown, not much in size but as a person.

Last year I was sitting alone on a bench at dinner time thinking "What the feck are you doing here Anna?" This year I'm sitting with a bunch of freaks who I love dearly, eating Nandos and actually have something in common with them. These people, these people are my friends, not my acquaintances.

Last year I hated my body, I'd put on all my weight and I wasn't in a very nice place. This year I love myself, for once I actually love myself and it's great. Go Anna, go!
Last year I was holding on to my old friends by the skin on my teeth, literally doing anything to keep them. I failed, obviously, because now we don't really speak. That's okay, because I have new friends and a new life and so do they. This year I re…

Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette| First Impressions.

Image
This is the first post I've actually wrote in ages. My other posts, bar my birthday post have been hiding away in my other folder, but now they have run out and I need to blog!


Whilst I was in Paris (which was amazing) I visited Sephora and picked up a palette I've been eyeing ever since the date came out. I can spend silly money on foundation, concealer and even mascara, but I feel sick at the thought of spending £38 on some Eye shadow. As it was my birthday and you're allowed to spend a silly amount of money on things which you don't really need, I bought it. Okay, so maybe I did buy it because the packaging is beaut and maybe I did buy it because.. Hello? Urban Decay.

Truth is, I don't really like it. the colours are too dark for my skin tone, they are so hard to blend which means you can't even blend them out to a lighter shade. I wanted to love this product because so many beauty gurus love it, obsess over it and I've wanted it for so long. The packagi…

My week- 18th Birthday special.

Image
This is a new type of series I will be starting.. Well starting it now. A blog post to tell you about my week, upcoming events and posts and just a general reminder of my week so far. It is going to be the raw Anna, the Anna who always goes into McDonalds and gets a Chicken Nugget Happy Meal and a Chicken Burger and the Anna who sings the same song every morning to Dan. The real Anna.
I turned 18 on the 18th September 2015 and it was one of the most 'normalish' days of my life, fun and exciting and all that but I was the same old Anna, just a year older.


I had my birthday party the week before, best night ever. Thanks again to everyone who bothered to turn up! My Mam put this photo up on Facebook, I mean what can I say? I was a cute baby!

We took a family selfie because we are cute like that, can we all just look at Oscars face please? I think he's had enough selfies at this point. We may not be the biggest family there is but we sure are the best!

I love stucky toffee pu…

Q&A 3.

Image
I asked you guys ages and ages ago to ask me questions for a questions and answers, sorry for the very, very late reply. The girl's been busy, okay?!

What's your favourite MAC lipstick?
My favourite lipstick is Cyber, because I love berry lips and this is almost black. Not many people have it and I think it's a really grungy colour, which is the style I mostly wear. MAC haul coming up soon!

When are you and Corey going to go out?
Thanks for this really awkward question Karl! I'm going to say never, purely because life problems, we have different lives and goals for the future. He will always be my bets friend, he will always be my Corey, no matter if he's single or not and I'll always love him unconditionally. Maybe when we are older, wider and a little more comfortable around the word 'relationship'. Maybe.

Are you going to prom?
I'm taking you mean the College ball? No I am not. Why? Because I refuse to spend as much money as I did for my Southfield…

Happy Anniversary!

Image
I still find it strange that it's been a whole year since I first encountered the world of Engineering. A whole year since I first took a giant leap into the unknown and very nearly backed out. And most importantly, I can't believe or even understand because it's that crazy that I've only known Corey and co. for a year!
I thought it was crazy when I finally got my certificate through and I seen that hard work, tears, tantrums and a shit load of Millie's cookies and hugs off Dan pays off. When I seen my grade I was so happy and I wanted to throw my results in the face if the guy who made me rethink this whole adventure. Now, if you're new to this blog, please go and check out my Engineering student blog post. If you're lazy and can't be bothered though, I'll quickly explain about these guys. 
It was my first day, I was alone at this point and had no friends, no friends full stop to be fair really. These guys were sniggering at me, really loudly and m…

UPDATE.

Image
I thought I'd take the time and sit down and do a quick update for everyone.

College.
I start college tomorrow, I'm only in for 3 days, woohooo. Down side is that it's three full days, super full days. 2 days I'm on 9 till 6 and the other I'm in 9 till 4. I'm back doing my beloved Engineering with my lovely class, plus a few newbies, who I'm sure will be great and as fun as last years group. My group has gotten smaller, Corey is in Newcastle getting all dirty being a Blacksmith, Ryan works at Nestle, Karl and Dan still work at Nestle but I will only see then 2 times a week which makes me sad. So this year it's just me, Dan, Dan, nice Dan, Wu and Cameron. I'm also starting to do a A level, which is the reason why 2 of my days are super long, God damn me trying to be extra smart! I feel creative writing will help me along with my blog and the content I write and hopefully it will make more friends (maybe some of them will even be girls!) My blogging d…

The one were I talk about death.

Image
I don't know what made me want to write about this, maybe it was recently talking about my Grandad or maybe it's the fact that I'm nearly 18 which means it's nearly been 2 years since he left me. Death is a horrible thing, it's even worse if you never get the chance to say goodbye.

My Grandad was my world, he took me on so many adventures, holidays and spontaneous trips away. He taught me to ride a bike, even though I would give up and fall off, even then he would give me a hug and make me try again. He would ring every toy shop in the county to make sure I woke up with the doll I wanted for Christmas, even if it meant having to drive to the nearest city. He would pick me up from school and help me with my geography homework. My Grandad was and is the reason why I smile very day. Because, some people don't have a chance to have a Grandad as cool as mine was, one who would build swings for me and make my wellies which light up, literally.
We used to argue, Gran…

Top 5 Books!

I love a good book, I love a book which will make me want to read in every possible hour. I love a book which will make me forget about my phone and social media and want to go to bed and read 'another chapter' hmm, haven't we all heard that one before?I have to admit, my top 10 books are mostly all about love stories or kissing your bestfriend.Where rainbows end- Cecilia Ahern.
I love this book, more than any other book in the world. I have a copy of it which you cant even buy anymore. I love the start, middle and end of the book. I love each and every letter, text message and email which has been sent. What i don't like is the awful flim which was made from it. To even call it a re make was disgusting, big fat no from and my Mam who got very excited and then very dissapointed. I like that in a book you, as the reader can make up your own images of what everyone looks like, how they eat their dinner and how their voices change when they relaise their bestfriend is get…

Yes, I'm the only girl.

I go back to college soon which I am so so so so excited about!! I get to see all my friends again, have an actual routine and will be awake before midday. This time last year I was shitting myself for results which turned out pretty good and I was even more apprehensive about going to college. On the 26th of August 2014 I went to college for my induction, which lasted around 20 minutes. That was the day I finally seen who I was going to spend two years of my life with.

Surprise, surprise I was the only girl.. Great. Fast forward to now, I've made friends with most of my course, obviously some of us didn't click and I don't have a interest in computer games apart from sims. But anyways, I love college now and I love the people who I now call best friends, even though they went traveling with me and didn't invite me.nno hard feelings though lads.
