Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017…

Well goodbye 2016, hello 2017.

This year has flown by and I can’t quite believe it is the end already; to be completely honest I’m glad it’s over because a fresh start is just the thing I need.

I can’t imagine that this year was great for anyone. The amount of celebrity icons that have tragically died this year has been horrific. Such legends that we will never forget.
I’m not going to write some sob story about how awful this year has been for me because quite frankly that would be unfair. There are so many people out there in this world who have risked their lives just so that they could get to a safe country. Since when did the world come to this?

I’m over in the corner crying because my parents decided to get a divorce but even I will learn to accept that it is for the better, even if I can’t see that right now.
But my point being that my life isn’t all that bad. Yes, I have things to overcome but my problems are minuscule compared to those living in poverty or living with life threatening diseases.

Generally I don’t ever stick to my New Years resolutions but for 2017 I am setting a goal that I will want to achieve. I want to help others. I’m not saying that so that people think I am a ‘good girl’ but because that is genuinely what I want to do. I want to know that I have made a difference. On Christmas Day I could help but feel guilty because I was receiving such lovely presents while there were people out there alone, on the streets, in hospital or fleeing their country. Next year I want to know that I have helped someone out there to have no worries for once in their life.

I hope everyone has a great 2017!

Happy New year!

November Faves…


Hello fellow bloggers/Blog readers,

I wonder… what did I love in November?…

It’s time for my November favourites, I’ve never done a blog post about the things I have been loving each month and I think its about time I jumped on that train and joined in. I hope you can be inspired to think about the things you have been loving in this chilly November.

To start off I would love to say a word or two about Benefit’s Porefessional. This might be a bit TMI but I have very open pores that can easily be clogged and this pore filler really helps keep my pores clean and empty. This primer lets my foundation glide smoothly over my skin with no lumps or bumps.I tap this onto my ‘problem areas’ before I apply my second primer and foundation. I would really recommend this if you have easily clogged pores.


My next favourite is the ‘Zoella Lifestyle On My Travels bag’. Now I am not just saying this because I am a crazy fan but because the bag is genuinely what I have been looking for, for quite a while now. Anyway, the bag comes with a gorgeous travel mug, a keyring and some adorable pencils. I use this bag for shopping, travelling and anything under the sun. In my opinion it is like Mary Poppins’ bag as there is never-ending space inside! It is a great bag for anyone who needs to carry a lot of things with them.


Last month I also loved my MAC lipstick in the shade ‘cosmo’, which I believe is an amplified creme (the texture). As described in the formula it is very creamy and moisturising. It is a pretty nude shade with hints of pink running through it. this has been my go to lipstick throughout November as it goes with pretty much anything.

My next favourite is my new laptop, I won’t say too much but I did get my dream present for my 14th birthday. I was very luck to have received a macbook air, this is not only amazing for me but it also means there will many more blog posts than before, so happy reading!

Another thing I have been loving is Benefit’s Roller Lash (I know another Benefit product…). I have very short, stubby and practically non- existent eyelashes that never hold a curl. I find that this mascara lifts my lashes beautifully and holds the curl all day, as well as this it really lengthens them and when I say really, I mean REALLY. (The picture is of the sample size version – I got it in a birthday pressie with a bunch of of other things.)


My final favourite isn’t actually a physical thing, I have just been loving writing! It is something i have really loved doing and for me is quite therapeutic as I can indulge myself in what I love and get lost in a story or piece of descriptive writing. I know that english and writing isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but, even if it’s no through writing, you should spend some time to do what you love.


What have you been loving? I would love to know! Tell me in the comments…

Happy New Year- 2016 Here We Come!

Happy New Year from Amelia O'Toole

Hello fellow bloggers/blog readers,

I wonder…what are my New Year’s resolutions?…

Happy New Year everybody, how did you celebrate?

Well, 2015 certainly has been quite overwhelming- what with finding out I had GHD (click here to find out what that is), all of the hospital visits, starting year 8 and I turned 13- So I am now a teenager.

I am going to give myself 2 New Year’s Resolutions and they will be:

  • To grow
  • To be more organised/tidy

Now the first one is pretty self explanatory, but I am still waiting for my medicine, meaning that I am still worrying a lot because I don’t really know much about the air pressure pen yet and I still have more questions to ask my doctor. But when I do get the medicine I will be hoping to see a difference in my height after about 6 months and I am really looking forward to that.

The second one is going to be easy to maintain at sometimes but it will most likely be hard most of the time. My room is so messy and I never tidy it. Within the first two months I would like to find a day where I can clear out my room and reorganise my shelves and then put everything away- although I do have a lot of stuff (Birthday and Christmas) to put away.

Anyway those were my New Year’s Resolutions, What are yours?

Never stop wondering…

Amelia Xx
