AoK May: Week 4

Hello and welcome to the last week of my Acts of Kindness theme for the month of May.

In all truth I haven’t really had Acts of Kindness on the brain. I guess that just shows how consuming life can be sometimes.

If you read week 1, you may remember the quote:

‘No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.’

Aesop

This quote sums up my reason for doing this theme. Sometimes we do kind things that may seem insignificant or we feel like they go un-noticed. On the other hand, there may be times when people do kind things for us but we don’t make the effort to let that person know that we are grateful, even though we really appreciate it.

So to end the last week I just want to say ‘Thank You!’ for reading and liking my weekly posts for this month, I definitely appreciate your kindness!!!

The last day

wpid-img_20140523_170527.jpg

 

So this is what I wore for my last day of college, its pretty simple but it did get me some compliments 😀

Also even though I’ve had my last official day at college, I still have to go in for exams. I have 6 left!

I hadn’t really made any plans in advance, as I didn’t really know who I wanted to spend my last day with or what I wanted to do.

As college was over and we were all heading out, I began to feel kind of sad, the end of college means the start of change. I’m not very good at embracing change, despite my best efforts, I often find myself looking back on the way things used to be.

In a few weeks I’ll be 18, in a few months many of my friends will be off to University in different cities all over England and I currently have no solid life plan.

Anyway, as I walked out  I was actually going to go home but then I went to say goodbye to a couple of friends who I’ve known for over 10 years. It’s so weird to think that I’ve known them for more than half my life.

Then I ended up going for lunch with a group of friends then to see ‘X-men: Days of Future Past’, in the evening. The movie was amazing by the way, so if you’ve been thinking about seeing it, go for it as you wont be disappointed.

I’m the kind of person that puts a lot of stress/significance on little things like ‘my last day at college’, so it was imperative to me that the day turned out amazingly.

The day didn’t turn out anything like how I thought it would though, it was so much better. Definitely a memorable day!

Man-go Team!

Hello 🙂

I got this beautiful colour a couple of days ago and I absolutely love it! Its my first time using a Sally Hansen nail varnish and I wasn’t disappointed.

This shade of orange is called Man-go Team,it’s super bright and although not a colour I would usually choose, I think its perfect for summer and I’ll definitely be wearing it a lot.

I’m hoping to do some nail art posts over the next few weeks, so look out!

Lover of lace

There was a time when I wouldn’t have worn this outfit, just the mere thought of it would have made me wince. I’d have worried that my stomach wasn’t flat enough, my thighs were too big and I would walk around with constant fear of what other people thought of the way I was dressed.

I feel like as I’ve gotten older,  I’m more confident with the way I dress. It’s actually a really great feeling because now I’m not as restricted with what I wear and I can be more experimental.

I must admit that these shorts have definitely grown on me. I still think they are super short and I doubt I’ll ever wear them without tights or leggings, but I must admit that I like them a lot.

I paired the shorts with black leggings a black crop top and my lace tee. I feel like the high neckline of the lace tee provides some modesty even though you can see right through it, but I would have felt naked without it.

I really liked this outfit and felt comfortable wearing it.  I threw on a navy oversized shirt just in case I got a little cold or I felt like covering up!

Aok May: Week 3

Welcome to week 3!

Yesterday was my last official day at college, although I do still have to go in for exams. Over the past week I’ve been thinking a lot about college, all the people I’ve met and the friends I’ve made over the past 2 years.

I got thinking about all of the nice things these people have done for me. Even just over the past week, (or maybe even just 24 hours?) I’ve been dealt more acts of kindness than I can count on both hands.

I guess I’d say the message for this week is to be grateful for things that others do for us whether its a stranger, a relative or someone in between.

I think its important to appreciate the kindness that we receive from others because its easy to take the little things for granted that are just part of daily life.

Life Snippets: The end is near

How do I say goodbye,

When I don’t want to let go?

How do I say goodbye,

When there’s something I need you to know?

So my last official week of college is approaching. I’m in year 13/A2 (the equivalent of a high school senior), so this really is the end.

I find it all pretty scary but a little exciting too. Over the next few months so many things are going to change.

AoK May: Week 2

Hello and welcome to week 2!

So the first half of the past week was good and the 2nd half, not so good.

Basically I wasn’t really in the ‘kind’ mood but then I thought even though I’m not in a good mood, it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t still extend my kindness to the people around me.

I guess the past week was an example of how when your in a not so good mood it can have an effect on the way you treat other people. My thinking was along the lines of ‘I’m in a bad mood so why should I be nice to you’.

Anyway, right now I’m feeling refreshed and ready to take on week 3, which is also my last week of college ever.

To end this post I have 2 qoutes on kindness:

Kindness consists of loving people more than they deserve.-Joseph Joubert

It is a man’s kindly acts that are remembered of him in the years after his life.-Ptah-Hotep
