Open up

This is me at "cringey" 15 no one knew i was so upset
When I was small I had a lot of trouble . When I say small I don't mean 5 or 6 i mean 13 , 14 , 15  and 16 . I had a hard time growing up .Compared to other family issues it wasn't major, but it was a pretty hard time for me as an individual.I'm not looking for sympathy from this post that is not what i want at all .From tweeting about how i felt in the past when i felt depressed or alone , my followers would  write to me in respond to a tweet to make sure i was okay . I would pour my heart out to a random person but it would actually make me feel so much better because they see the situation from a total different perspective .Ehm..Ye i am a typical teenager that had her hard downfalls over the past few years .Body issues, family issues, depression , types of bullying , heartbreak,betrayal ,lied to , used  .These are all things that not only me but half the world go through in their life . When your 15 or 16 you feel like its the end of the world when you can stop crying at night .Some people are shocked when they find out what ive been through because right now i post everyday happy cheery cute fashionable stuff on my facebook page but thats only because i got out of the tunnel.Young girls write to me when they are feeling suicidal, upset or insecure .I've had plenty and plenty of people do this .Its a horrible situation to be put in but i understand what its like to be in their shoes so i talked and talked until i made sure they were okay  because there's nothing worse than waking up in the morning with dried up eyes from crying all night .I seen a few doctors in the past three years even though i've been sick for 5 years .I did it behind my parents back because i had never been so scared in my life but i was so proud of myself for doing it because i never spoke about it before it was a very big deal for me and some people might not realize that.My moods would change every 10 seconds and it would be a scary dramatic change .I would have panic attacks. I felt like i had no one , even thought i had loads of friends . If you are ever upset or feel like its the end of the world make sure you talk to someone because i can promise there is someone that is going through the exact same thing as you.Its scary but once everything is out in the open ,things start to get better from there . To this day i've never been so happy in my life, been so proud of myself and ive never felt so good about myself.
.I thought it was impossible to get out of that state of mind but nothing is impossible .Two organisations that helped me was "minds" and "pieta house "and two celebs i looked up was Demi Lovato and Frankie Sandford .Two young girls who were strong enough to admit their problems to the public and like this article, its not easy for me to write . You never know who is going through a hard time so be there for your friends and family because they might consider you as someone who isn't actually there for them.

'One night, I got upset because Wayne hadn't bought the right yoghurts. I manage to convince myself he didn't know me at all.
'It set off this spiral of negative thinking – that if I disappeared, it wouldn’t matter to anyone. In fact, it would make everybody’s life easier. I felt that I was worthless, that I was ugly, that I didn’t deserve anything.'

“I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay up.”

This article is dedicated to a young follower of mine on twitter who is always writing to me looking for help . This mightened be everyones cup of tea but it is a very important topic .Not all childhoods are bad but there is alot worse .So be thankful for everything you have , keep healthy and remember nothing is impossible .This article was hard for me to publish so i hope it helped and i hope i dont get a lot of criticism for it .

10 steps to get over a guy

Before I tell you how to get over a guy in 10 steps I would like to point out that these are not all the steps I had to go through . Some of these steps I advise you to do will be from my experience but as well experiences I have heard worked in the past . 

Right these are 10 ( easier said than done ) steps that will help you get over that boy. 

1. Number one is DO NOT. Do not get all dramatic , given yourself sympathy , lying in bed crying listening to Taylor Swift . That is not the way forward .That is one of the worst things you can do your only breaking yourself more and feeling sorry for yourself . Do you think he's at home crying in bed listening to Bruno mars ? No he's not .

2.Get Active !! If you never exercise start now ! Going for a run every evening with motivational music bursting through your headphones is a great way to boost your confidence and feel better for yourself . Exercise takes your mind off everything around you it's a time to focus on yourself and your body . If you sit at home on the couch watching tv you are going to get depressed everything will be scattered in your head , it's not good and you probably won't sleep well cause you will have something bothering you .But if you Exercise you come home feeling so good about yourself and you will fall asleep the minute you hit the pillow and wake up fresh as a daisy with a care free mind .

3.Surround yourself with your best friends. Your friends are guaranteed to put a smile on your face .Having fun with your friends makes you realise life gets so much better and everything will be okay . This is a very important step . Your friends will be there for you but don't depress them with your sad stories . Show them you are fine right now and mean it . They will be proud .

4. DO NOT go out with the girls on a night out and make it a goal to get with as many lads possible just because you can now . That is the worst thing you can  do , it won't look good and I promise you you will not feel good afterwards . When your going out with the girls you go out with the girls and that's it . You are out to be free and stupid with your friends not out to get a name for yourself for stupid mistakes . 

5.Start some new activities . Find new hobbies and work on them until you are a pro !Make it a goal. This will help you focus on yourself and what you want in life . Helps you find who you are 

6. Be cocky . Everyone is entitled to be a little bit cocky . Do your make up buy new clothes ! This will boost your confidence and make you realise you are better off without him . You will feel good about yourself .

7. The day will come when you see him with another girl. If you pass this step  You are WINNING !!! This is the hardest step out of them all because your watching someone take your position . It will hurt but the best way to handle it is to think about how much happier you can be and how much you have achieved without him. Be happy for him and be proud of yourself . If you don't take this step like a breeze (Which I don't expect anyone to ) do not cave ! Just because you feel a little weak doesn't mean you failed and have to go back to step one it just means you have been so strong for so long . If you get through this step you are flying .

8. When you are ready for a new lad in your life do not down grade from what you had or you will be miserable ! Make sure he treats you the way you've never been treated before and makes you feel good about yourself . If this fella doesn't then don't waist your time going through the same shit again . We're not getting any younger . don't have to throw out everything you have that reminds you off the boy . Your not in a movie so stop making things dramatic . If some little things do upset you put then into a bag and put it away somewhere you usually don't look and take it as a memory to look back on . 
10. The most important step out of then all is number ten ! You have to remember all this takes TIME . It will not happen over night , a week , a month . When you are over him you will know but don't give up and break down because its taking a long time to work . Everything takes time

I hope people find this useful if they are going through a hard time but at the same time I hope not a lot of people need to read this cause its a hard process but you will come out stronger in the end . Thanks for reading this it won't apply to everyone but I hope you still like it :) x

Will boys ever be satisfied

I sometimes wonder what does be going through a lads head when it comes to finding the perfect girl .
We are given the Impression that boys want a girl with big boobs , a big bum,a flat tummy ,Perfect hair , clear skin , Tanned , long legs,glowing eyes .. the list could go on and on.
Do they think we are fucking magic ? We cant all be those things it doesnt matter how much we try by putting on sally Hanson / coco brown , Putting in hair extensions ,Wearing high heels , covering our freckles on our faces with foundation ..All girls do this to be in competition with each other .
We all know we're not perfect so we try our hardest to look like that "Perfect" Image guys want.
But if you stand back and think about it for a second , lads never know what they want .
Listen to this ...

 "I want a girl that has an arse Like Iggy Azalea 

"I want a girl that has an arse like Ariana Grande"

"I want a girl who has a boobs like Hellen Flanagan "
"I want a girl who has boobs like Rihanna"

"I want a girl who has a a thigh gap"
"I want a 
girl with toned thighs"

  "I love a girl who is all natural looking"
                                                 "Shes class with make up on"


                                                "I love a girl who is half cast"                                    "Shes so pale"

                                               "She too Rock chick"                                              "shes too girly"

                " she looks like a boy with short hair"
                       " I would"

       "the body on her "
  "I love a girl whos curvy"

What im basically saying is at a young age boys dont know what they want , well the majority of them . Very little are looking for something unique.I Might just wait a while until I grow up a bit to go searching for a man because they will never be satisfied at this age no matter how much effort you put in.
You can try and try again but why waist your time doing that.Trust me its not worth it.Stop chasing and be chased!

I read a quote today in Heat magazine from Vicky Pattison that really stood out to me .
"You see these Victoria Secret models and girls from Made in Chelsea in bikinis and they're so skinny and gorgeous and made up, but that's not normal.Its not sustainable.If you want to live life to the fullest, you've got to go out and get drunk sometimes "

My favourite hair products

Is your hair hard to brush , dry, split ?? These products i mention below ,are the best products I have ever used for my hair ! 

Revlon equave .
I bought the set of revlon equave for blondes for only 9.95! In the set there is a shampoo Detangler and purple spray Detangler which keeps those brassy orange tones away from bleach in your hair !  There is nothing worse than getting bleach in your hair and in a few weeks later it turns orangey! 

These two products have made my hair so soft and healthy looking . I've noticed a huge difference from using Pantene to Revlon . I highly recommend this set for blondes because our hair can be so dry and unhealthy at times with the bleach this totally repairs it all! 

This set can also be bought for brunettes and other shades for the same price . It keeps your hair rich and healthy looking.

When I went on Holidays I bought the revlon sun protection spray . I sprayed it in my hair twice a day and it kept my hair protected from 32 degrees . It also kept it so soft and non greasy . With the weather now it would very handy to have .

Joico shampoos 
The best shampoo for keeping your hair the same colour as you left the hairdressers with is the joico shampoo . It looks like you've got your hair done every time you use it . It's absolutely brilliant ! It saves you getting your hair coloured every few months .This shampoo helps bright the colour of your hair .
 All these products can be purchased in most hairdressing suppliers or most hair salons .

Late night thinking

Do you ever stay awake at night and re run incidents , events , conversations , moments in your head ? That's what I was doing right before I wrote this post , it was moments from the past that I will never forget and will never experience those kind again. 

These moments in our heads might be days we would like to relive again or maybe your thinking about something you should have said in the middle of that conversation or simply just taking a totally different perspective of how your life is going ; college, boyfriends,girlfriends,family,work and so on . 

The majority of people that stay awake at night thinking are the ones that have something bothering them like me . People that had a brilliant day might look back on the last few hours , smile and close their eyes  because their day was full of success and happiness . 

If your wide awake one night with something bothering you stop and think about that whole day you lived . It might have been the shitest day of your life , but the positive thing you can take from it is that you are still here and alive and they are the best days you will ever get . There's a reason to smile :) sleep tight  guys x

Loving him was Red

Guys just a quick post to tell you where I got this simple outfit !!
The dress is from new look . It's just a long cami top but I loved the colour I had to get it ! It was €8.99

The shoes are from penneys . They are €15 euro . I also got a pair of these sandal heels in black from New look they were a bit more expensive but they were much more comfortable than the penneys ones ! They are a very awkward shoe . If you have an arched foot like me you might find it difficult to walk in them . 
This outfit is so cheap and simple for a night out .

inspired by Rihanna .

No one is ever going to be 100% happy with their body or face , I mean absolutely no one !! I thought when you're skinny and have a flat tummy your going to be delighted with your shape ,until I met one of my best friends in college . She had it all flat tummy , the thigh gap ,everything girls desire to have these days , she is a model . But as I got to know her better  , and as I let out my insecurities about my body to her she began to tell me hers . We would both get ready together on nights out together. As we both try to cover our "flaws " I realised that no one can ever be happy with the way they look . 

60% of woman in the world are not happy with the way they look why ?? We should learn to respect and love our bodies . I used to get very upset when I looked in the mirror at myself .I have just as many insecurities as anyone else and it doesn't matter how many of my friends or followers on twitter try to deny it , I will always be insecure about my skin and figure .

When I was younger I never used to leave my house without wearing make up. Now I'm starting to post pictures to the Internet of my make up free days and go to town with not a patch of make up on . Wearing make up does give everyone that bit of confidence but people should have confidence in themselves before they put their mask on. 

If reading magazines and seeing pictures of girls that have tiny figures upset you stop and think they probably have different insecurities than you but they are dealing with it and pointing out their best features . Everyone was born unique , there is no point trying to be someone your not . Copy a celebs style if you like it , that's grand , but be yourself. Be different, be quirky , be stylish , be cute , do rock chick , be sporty because at the end of the day that's who you are . So whenever you see mascara running down your face , grab a wipe ,wipe all your make up off and smile :)

My skin , no filters no make up #beconfident
