Dealing with Exam Stress

The topic is in the title. Revision, timetables and lots and lots of good ol' exams. Brill!

I hated revision and could quite easily play Sims 3 than revise how earthquakes are made (Sorry Mr Haslop!). I drove my whole family crazy with my lack of revision and motivation. Getting C grades can't be that hard can it? Wrong! 

Eventually I did revise, so here are my 10 top tips for every student out there!

1. Don't think you will be able to know everything in 5 minutes of opening that text book. Trust me, it won't just all sink in your head with one quick read!

2. Just because your friend can revise from a text book doesn't mean you can! Try new things, I found after me nearly crying because I simply couldn't remember SOH CAH TOA that I learnt better if I read something and wrote it down.

3. Plan when you are going to revise and stick to it. Don't decide at 6pm the night before your English exam you should start revising. It does not work. You will panic and nothin…

Body Shop skin care routine

Hiya Guys!

As promised, here is my Body Shop routine. I was going to do a haul but all I really buy is my skin care and some body butters for peoples birthdays/Christmas, so it was a bit pointless. I will try and do a mini review on each skin car product though.

Firstly, I always use tepid water (probably too cold for every other Beauty Blogger, but I am Anna so.) and then I use the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Cleanser, This product costs £5.00 and for me, it has lasted what seems a life time. I have combo skin as I have mentioned in the past, so when I do have spots my skin really goes for it. I'm talking about a full face of nasty face gremlins here. This Cleanser really reduces redness and strips your skin off all the oil that is hanging about. Only problem with this is, when your skin does start to clear up it can be pretty drying on your skin, so I would only recommend using this when you have breakouts or you have oily skin.

P.s a lot of people have been asking about my other blog, that's my space to write down how I'm feeling and right now, I don't really want the world knowing my stuff. Sorry guys! Although I did trust my ex looking at it, when a very big chunk is all about him! Maybe one day... just not yet.

Have a great Thursday!! Remember its FRIDAY T…

My life as an Engineering student.

As a lot of people know, I do a Engineering course at Carlisle College. Over the past 6 and a bit months I have cried, smiled and made the most amazing friends. This is my story.

I am sure most people in my year never expected me to do Engineering, to be fair it wasn't until I seen a advert for Gen 2 I thought about it. My Grandad Dave made me believe that if I wanted to do something, I had to out there and get it. No matter how bumpy the road may be. My Grandad never seen me get on my course or cuddle me when on my first day no one would speak to me. Thank you Grandad, for believing in me.

I got into Carlisle College and I thought it was going to be amazing, new friends, new people and most importantly, a fresh start. I am generally a bubbly person and I talk to everyone... Until a bunch of lads from my course came over to me and abruptly told me 'Erm Hair and Beauty is over there.' I was alone. I was scared and i thought that for the whole year this was going to be it. I…

Lush Haul

So as promised, my LUSH review. Over the past 6 months I have made myself quite a collection of LUSH products. So, here are my 5 favourite products and what I love/hate about them.
Cupcake face mask.
This is my all time favourite face mask, the smell, the texture and how it makes my face after is yummy! It's got coco in it what helps our skin be the best it can be. For me, it also helps to prevent breakouts and combat spots when I do have them. I only have a couple of downfalls with this product, one being the size of the pot. As you may know this is the mask which you keep in the fridge and the pot is visibly smaller than the normal face masks (Which I also keep in the fridge because I personally think it works better.) Please correct my if I'm wrong but they are also more expensive? Overall I think this face mask is a must have for all skin types and budget. Love, love, LOVE this!
Shampoo bar (Montalbano).
This shampoo bar is my hair God send! My hair has been bleached, dyed e…

What I wish I knew BEFORE prom

Hiya guys!
So LOTS of people have been requesting my prom series on my blog, so here it is! This is just what I as me wished. Some of it won't apply to some one you, but I hope this helps you.
PROM VS. EXAM RATIO.
Oh man. I so wish i knew this, maybe then I would have revised photosynthesis (sorry Miss Fye!). But really, just remember that prom lasts 6 hours but them exam results last a life time. I would rather have a A in Biology than have my prom hair practice.
THEM FRIENDS.
Prom is the time when everyone is everyone's best friend and you take sooooo many pictures with people who really.. you hardly know. then they will say 'OHHH MYYY GODD WE ARREE SO KEEPING IN TOUCH' a drunken promise is not a promise, Everyone is friends for the night, I know this. I made friends with all my year but the next day it went back to my normal group. Not gonna lie though, it is good to be friends with everyone for a night.
FAKE TAN NO NO'S.
I got a fake tan. I got a fake tan and r…
