My friend

How do you tell a friend that they are doing the wrong thing? I pride myself in being a good friend but sometimes that feels impossible. I know my friend is doing something wrong that will only end up in tears; her tears. Yet I haven’t said anything. Then again, I am selling myself short, I did try. I tried to tell her that he wasn’t worth it and that he is going to hurt her. She doesn’t listen. I’ve tried.

What can I do about it?

I have decided I have to just leave her to get hurt then be her shoulder to cry. As much as this hurts me, I know this is what I must do.

I hope this makes me a good friend.

Healthy Living

You are what you eat.

 

So we always here about living healthily and eating the right stuff but is it really important?

Well recently, I have become more interested and concerned about what I eat and how much I exercise.  As most of us have just resumed into school, our bodies are probably still used to the lazy summer holidays. If you are like me you spent most of your summer eating and sleeping. I piled on so much weight (luckily for me, it doesn’t show). I have now joined a gym, every Monday and Tuesday, and I am walking more everyday.

Now I want to get rid of the stupid idea that snacking in between meals is healthier than eating full meals. I used to do this everyday. I would receive lunch money and would spend it on snacks, such as crisps, popcorn or pastries, and I would eat then in between meals (and sometimes in lessons;). I did this because I thought I wouldn’t put on weight this way and I could eat as much as I want. This idea really DOES NOT WORK. In the short term, you lose your appetite and in the long term, you put on some much more weight. I advise you to stay away from snacks, expect once in a while obviously, because what you put into your body really does matter.

As I go through my healthy living challenge, I hope to share my findings with you. I will try and post ways on staying fit; healthy and to eat well. And do not worry, they will be NO pictures of me looking sweating in the gym.

Coldplay – The Scientist – Lauren & Austin North

So my favorite brother and sister combo, Austin and Lauren North, are back again with a new cover.

To the well known Coldplay hit, The Scientist, Austin and Lauren recreated the track.

Via Twitter, Lauren and Austin fans (like me) could probably tell something amazing was brewing as Austin tweeted, ‘Uploading a new cover tomm. #LateNightEditing‘ with this picture.

So when I logged unto twitter to see both Lauren and Austin tweeting about this new cover, I knew I need to see it. Of course I wasn’t disappointed, it was amazing. Lauren’s voice is absolute bliss and Austin’s drumming could get anyone moving to the beat. They are amazing.

I did know the song before they made a cover but I must admit I didn’t like the song that much until I watched this cover. I love the simplicity of the cover; Lauren singing and Austin playing the drums. They look so involved in the song, in the video. They made the song their own.

Without giving to much a way, watch it for yourself.

French bread: Brioche Recipe

Its been a long time since I did a post about cooking and food.

So tomorrow at school, I am cooking.

My design brief is a product which could be sold at a coffee shop and has yeast in it. So I decided to make a sweet french bread called Brioche. Brioche, when it’s made well, is absolutely amazing.

So I was looking online for a easy recipe to follow and I found one at http://eastcourtmanor.co.uk/a-brioche-recipe-which-really-works/

THIS RECIPE IS NOT MINE. I FOUND IT AT http://eastcourtmanor.co.uk/a-brioche-recipe-which-really-works/

 

 

 

Peace&Love.. and french bread;)

20 years later

My friend gave me this really cool idea to write about what I think I’ll be like in 20 years time. So I’m writing this. Most of it, by the way, is made for your entertainment.

Right now I am completing my GCSEs, which I think are extremely important. I am an A-student in every subject, which is definite added pressure.Right now, I live in a small town in London, England but in 20 years I see myself living between homes in LA (USA), Melbourne (Australia), London (England), Abuja (Nigeria) and Madrid (Spain). I will be married to a lovely husband who is also my best friend. He is a singer, rapper and music producer. We will have 2 kids, one boy and one girl (twins are also an option). Our main family home would be in LA. The kids would get home-school everyday except Wednesdays and Fridays where they go to public school. We will have one dog (named Buddy) and 3 rabbits (named Un, Deux & Trois, which is one, two & three in French btw).

Career wise, I see myself doing many things.

I own a worldwide magazine name Flow. It covers everything  and every topic so nearly everyone in the world reads it. I started creating it at 16 years of age until it became the huge multi-billion empire it is. I have 508 employees and the headquarters are in London. There would be a kids version (FlowKidz), a teenage version (FlowDem’ ) and an older residents version ( The Flow) just so the news and content is relevant to the readers.

As well as that, I see myself being a world famous chef. If you have read my all about me page (which you can read here) you will know that cooking and food are one of my passions. I love cooking food. I love watching Masterchef Australia. Half the chefs there began cooking when they where like 13 years old and it inspired me. So I see myself as a famous chef with restaurants in lots of different countries. I don’t really know what my restaurant would be called but I know that it would be something memorable and cheesy, pretty much like me.

I also see myself as a fashion stylist and consultant. I don’t know everything when it comes to fashion but I know what looks good on different people and I love shopping so that pretty much qualifies me to become a fashion stylist.

I love music so I indefinably see myself doing something in music. As my super cute husband is going to be a singer/rapper/music producer, its only far that I am signed to his record label. I want to put a smile on people’s face, and if I could do that with my singing, I would love to. Check out my YouTube videos  and tell me what you think.

Obviously, I exaggerated most of the things I wrote to be entertaining. My overall principal in life is to be happy. If any of these things happen, so be it. If they all happen, Praise the Lord. But if none of them happen, life will go on. See this is the thing about everything, you cannot expect too much because if it doesn’t come, or turn up like that, you feel deflated. Just expect to have a happy life because no matter what actually happens in your life, there is sure going to be a point that will being your heart eternal happiness, that you remember forever.

Peace&Love.. and DREAM.
