Review | My first tripod - Hama Star 61

If you have been reading my blog or watching my videos for a while then you will probably know that I used to use various objects to film my videos with. I usually use a stack of books however I have been known to use DVDs, storage boxes and whatever else I stack to create a "tripod" for my camera, iPad or iPhone. 

However I now feel like I'm beginning to become a real Youtuber as I have now brought my very own tripod I still have a Macbook Pro, filming lights and a big girl camera to get. Originally I was going to get the Manfrotto BeFree Compact Lightweight Travel Tripod which is £147.90 after a while I decided not to get this one. I thought to myself that there would be no point in buying a tripod which is a lot more money than the one I chose when you haven't even used a tripod before. That's why I ended up with this tripod which I don't regret getting at all. 

I am so happy that I actually got this tripod instead of the other one it's such a perfect one for a beginner. First of all it comes with a bag which you can easily put on your shoulder and carry around with you. It only weighs 1220g which is very light for a tripod as they can sometimes be very heavy. I love the handle feature on it as it enables me to film pieces smoothly. The additional features of the tripod such as the function to move the top bit up and down also allows me to film a section without it being shaky or out of focus.

Although the tripod is very light it does make it easy to fall over which is why I would recommend hanging something heavy at the bottom with the provided hook. In addition to this although the tripod seems like it's quite a tall one in the photos provided on Amazon it's actually not that high. It's only 153cm tall which means that filming look books or fashion videos can be quite hard. However don't let this put you off buying it as that would be silly I would just recommend using a box to place it upon or using a friend to film you with by using the handle feature.

Overall I'd definitely say get this if you are a beginner YouTuber or even if you want a tripod which you can take away with you. It has so many great features and it's only £14.50 at the moment so you may as well get it while it's on offer!! It's such a fantastic starter tripod and I understood how to use it in around 10 minutes it's that easy to figure out. 

The only thing I would be careful of is I'm not sure if a DSLR or a bridge camera will fit onto it apart from that I am one happy YouTuber. I no longer have to use a stack or books or DVD's which makes me very happy. I used to spend around 20 minutes just setting up my "tripod" because it kept falling apart.


Wishlist | I Were To Spend Money #4 - South Beach

Hey guys so today's blog post is another "If I were to spend money wishlists" because yes I am still trying to save up money. I want to try and save up so that I can buy an Apple Macbook Pro.

First of all I'd like to introduce the website South Beach to you guys. I can't quite remember how I came across them but I am so happy that I did. They have some amazing pieces of clothing and accessories at such reasonable prices!! They have five main categories which are swimwear, beachwear, accessories, fitness and lounge wear. 

The majority of their products are brightly coloured which means that they are a great source for holiday clothes. Make sure to go and check out their blog too as they have lots of posts on "inspiration, guest posts, healthy living, latest trends, competitions, exclusive discounts and more!".

The first thing that I would really like to get my hands on this week is this beach bag. It reminds me of all thing's beach related such as ice cream, the sea, the sun, sunbathing etc..not just because it's a beach bag but because of the colours of it. I just think it's super cute and would be a perfect size for all of your beach essentials. They have a few other colours however this one was my favourite.

These bikini's remind me of the Triangl ones however I think that these ones are of a normal swimwear material whereas the Triangl ones are usually a rubbery material. I personally prefer the normal material as well as this these bikini's are so much cheaper than the Triangl ones and almost look like they belong to the same brand. 

I really liked these two bikini's in particular as I thought that they were different to the normal pattern that I usually go for. However South Beach offer many styles, colours and patterns when it comes to their swimwear section. 

Last of all is this sleep shirt which would be perfect for Summer I love wearing shorts and a top in summer as pjs however I would also think that this would be super comfy too. I've always liked checked patterns and this one is especially cute so I think that if I got this I would wear it quite a lot. 


My Adoption Story Part 2 - Finding My Real Parents

Hey guys today's youtube video & post is a very personal one and is very close to my heart. It's the second part to my adoption story if you haven't seen the first part then I've put the links down below. I really hope you enjoy finding out more about my story if you have any questions feel free to ask them!! If you liked this video please give it a THUMBS UP and make sure to SUBSCRIBE.

Adoption story part one:
Hey guys so if you don't already know then I was adopted when I was 10 months old from China. I don't know any of my real family and in today's video I will be discussing if I would ever like to find them.

The truth is not really I know that many people would like to find their real parents if they have been adopted or fostered. However I have my reasons for not wanting to find them. I guess the only real reason that I would want to find them is because I would like to see who I look like most so that's not really a valid enough reason to begin the search now is it?

I also have such a loving family already that finding my real family could confuse my a lot and create many complications within my life. As well as this because I was adopted from China it would be extremely hard to find my real parents as Chinese people are the most populated in the world. Not to mention the cost, time and effort it would take along with the possibility of them not even living in China or being dead.

I am also very realistic when it comes to this topic as I think about it daily so I know that the possibility of them not wanting me could be true as I was put up for adoption in the first place. However I also know that I could have been put up for adoption for many other reasons such as the one child policy which was very popular in China at that time. In addition to this something may have happened like my mum could have died at birth and my dad didn't want to raise a baby on his own all of this could be possible. 

If I ever did want to find them later on in life I would wait until I'm stable enough so that means I have a good job, a supportive husband & family (I already have this) and I am most importantly emotionally ready. I guess if you are not adopted or don't have any friends that are then you won't know how emotionally stressful it can be at times. The thing that weighs on everybody's mind when they are adopted is the fear of rejection which could happen. 

Although it's easy for people to say it would be simple for me to find my real parents. It won't. I mean first of all China at that time were mainly paper based which means that all of my records will probably be lost by now. Secondly the only real way of finding if someone was really related to me would be through DNA. I can't go around the whole of china asking people to take a DNA test now can I it would be unrealistic, costly and pointless. The whole thing would cost thousands as there would be many stages to finding them. 

This slightly puts me off as there's no point in my opinion in wasting that much money to get rejected or to find out that they are dead. I know that I probably sound selfish as they could want to find me but at the end of the day I was adopted so ultimately it's my decision. I don't have that much of an urge to find them as other people do I'm quite happy with my family life at the moment I have a loving family.

So that's the end of the second part in my adoption series if you would like me to do a third part then please let me know. I hope you liked understanding my thoughts and feelings on my adoption. I'd also like to say a massive thank you to my mum for allowing me to upload this as it's personal to her too.

Wishlist | If I Were To Spend Money #3 Feel Unique

Hey guys so today's blog post is another "If I were to spend money wishlists" because yes I am still trying to save up money. I want to try and save up so that I can buy an Apple Macbook Pro which I'm thinking about paying for monthly.

I would really like to get these as I already own the Pro Curl 210 by BaByliss which I absolutely love. I suck at curling my hair when I have to use the curlers that don't have the clip bit. I also would love to get a hold of this one as it's a 32mm whereas the one I own is only a 25mm. 

I'm a big fan of big curls so the extra 7mm would be useful. I also am keen to try it out because it's got a titanium barrel which I have never tried before. It also has many features which appeal to me such as it automatically turning off after a certain amount of time. This is handy as just the other day I forgot to turn mine off luckily I smelt the burning before I went out ooops.

Next of all is this leave in conditioner spray which I think would benefit my hair a lot. Recently it's been quite dry although I do use conditioner I think that this leave in one will make it a lot softer and healthier. I have heard a lot of good things about the sexy hair brand however I myself have never tried any of their products. I also think the packaging helps as it's bright and eye catching. I think that it will suit me a lot as it provides a lightweight moisturiser. I think that I would only use this once or twice a week as a treat for my  hair. 

Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask £9.55
I decided to go for the smaller size of this hair mask as the larger one was almost £40! I have never tried a hair mask before however I like the idea of them and I have seen the results that people get after using them. It says that it will help bring out hair's inner health which sounds interesting. I've always loved the smell of Moroccanoil it's just such a unique but lovely smell. Again like the leave in conditioner I think that I would only use this once a week as it's more of a weekly thing rather than a daily thing. 

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Oatmeal Mask £7.50
When I read about skin care routines or watch youtube videos on them people often use food in at least one area of their routine. So getting an oatmeal mask seems normal and not weird or crazy. I've heard that oatmeal is a great way to repair and revive the skin. I think that I would really like this as I usually prefer thicker masks rather than thinner ones. I have always seen first aid beauty in blog posts and youtube videos however I have never tried any of their products myself. 

First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Eye Cream £23
Recently I've started to take more care when it comes to my eyes as I've been noticing how important this actually is. It's also a great hand bag size product which means that you can easily take it with you wherever you go. I think that this eye cream would be brilliant for this as it does five things in one. 
It helps with:
- Helps to prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Improves skin radiance.
- Corrects uneven skin tone.
- Nourishes, moisturises and soothes the skin.
- Combats free radicals.

EcoTools Fresh & Flawless Brush Set £11.99
This brush set would be a great starter kit for your face as they have all of the brushes that you would need. I also like that they are able to be used with liquid, powder or mineral foundation. This means that they can be used a lot more than if they could only be used with a liquid foundation for example. I would also like to try them and compare them to the brush set that I got myself from Amazon. 

Tanya Burr Nail Polish Trio Set 1: Mini Marshmallows, Dark Magic & Fairy Tale £14.99
I have yet to purchase any of Tanya's nail polishes as I do think that they are quite expensive for a nail polish. However I'm more likely to pick up one of her trio sets although we are fast approaching Spring I really like the colour of these nail polishes. I think that they would be great for the evening especially the pink glitter one as bold and unique. 

You can really tell Tanya's spent a lot of time on her products as each nail polish is named differently which I love. I think that some of the names of them are just so cute and they really fit well. I probably won't get around to getting any of these in the near future but they will be something I shall ask for my birthday which is in May.


Video | Tower Bridge Glass Walkway + A Day in London

Hey guys so today's blog post/video is a vlog of my time at London's Tower Bridge Glass Walkway and also the rest of the afternoon/evening I spent out with my mum and some family friends. If you liked this video please give it a THUMBS UP and make sure to SUBSCRIBE.

First of all once we had met up we all made our way towards Tower Hill as we had booked tickets to go on the glass walkway. Before going on it I had heard about it as I had read it in the newspaper a while back. I was a bit anxious as I'm not very good when it comes to heights. I know that it was safe and everything but it still made me feel queasy when I actually stepped on the glass itself. 

If you want to find out more about that then take a look at my first ever vlog. I have to admit it was pretty fun filming it as I have never done anything like it before. I have filmed vlogs before but I have never featured in them before so talking to a camera was pretty weird. I got a few odd looks but after a while it was fine so I continued to do it. Although it's not exactly the worlds longest vlog I did manage to capture the experience which is going to be nice to look back on in a few years time. 

Outfit of the day:
Jacket - Boohoo
Boots - New Look
Skirt - H&M
Shirt - Hollister
Tights - Primark (The extra cosy ones)

Dinner settings
 After the Tower Bridge Glass Walkway experience we all made our way to our dinner reservation which was at Le Pont De La Tour. I have to admit when I first entered the restaurant I was taken in by the whole feel of the restaurant. The restaurant is a very posh but very friendly place all of the waiters are either French, Italian or Spanish which was pretty cool. They were so accommodating and it was the type of place where your chair would get pulled out for you when you came back from the bathroom (weird but unique experience). 

The menu
I wasn't sure I would like any of the food as it was a posh place however the choice was very open as they had a few choices which I knew I would like. First of all I went for a passion fruit non-alcoholic cocktail as I'm not really a drinker. For those wondering I am allowed to drink if I wanted to in the UK as the legal drinking age is 18. 

I then chose the salmon which was just a small helping of smoked salmon with pomegranate, chilli and red onion. I then went for the beef with potatoes, vedgetables and a Yorkshire pudding. I decided not to have a pudding as I didn't really like any of the options available. So I had some of the small chocolate gifts that they gave to us they were super yummy as some of them were small chocolate brownies. 
All of our drinks mine was a passion fruit cocktail (non-alcoholic)

Once we all finished at the restaurant we made our way along the river towards the Shard. Ever since I moved to London which is about six years ago now I've always wanted to walk along the river at night time. I'm so glad that I got the chance as it's such a wonderful experience. I couldn't help myself I had to take lots of photos as it's probably something I won't do in a long time.

We then went to the bar at the Shard which was on something like the 42nd floor so it wasn't all the way up but it was high enough. The photo that I took really doesn't do the view justice as it was just breathtaking and I'd love to go during the day. If you have the chance definitely go and check it out it's a great way to see the view without paying for a ticket to go all the way up.

Five Things Friday 13.02.15

So I thought that I would start this series called Five things Friday now it's not like I just made it up myself I've seen many bloggers do exactly the same post but on their blog. If you haven't already guessed what it is then I'll let the cat out of the bag every Friday I'm going to be looking back on my week and sharing with you guys five good things that happened that week. I think that it's such a lovely way to keep a mini record of my life as you often forget those little things that happen on a daily basis.

I forgot to mention I didn't upload a Five Thing's Friday last week as my week was pretty hectic so I didn't really have time to upload one. I also think it was quite boring as all I did was school work, work and relax. 

I've finally told everyone about my blog/youtube channel which was a pretty big thing for me. Only a few of my friends and family members knew and of course all of you who already read my blog knew. I guess I kept it quiet for over a year as in my own mind I thought that people would be like why are you doing that. I completely understand that people don't understand the whole world of blogging. 

However saying that I was overwhelmed with the response I got from friends and family who all loved what I did. When you keep something quiet like that for a long time and get a response like the one I had it was quite emotional because I was afraid of the label and judgements that people would have because I put so much of myself on the internet. I can honestly say now I've done it I feel like a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I feel so much more happier in myself. 

I picked up Fleur De Forces new book which has brought a new sense of inspiration into my life as it's filled with many tips and tricks. I have already done a blog post on it which was a general overview of the book and my first thoughts which you can find here. 

Each chapter is filled with text, beautiful illustrations, diagrams and photos of Fleur. I especially love the balance of the text as it's not too much or too little. I find that books which have lots of text can often be overwhelming and hard to read. As well as this the combination of photos, illustrations and diagrams helps you to understand each topic a lot better than if the book just had photos for example. 

I got to see one of my closest friends whom I haven't seen since before Christmas. It was lovely to see her and catch up with her as she'll always have a special place in my heart. She's one of those friends that no matter what life throws at you good or bad she will always be there. Even if we don't talk for days, months or years I know I'll always be able to call her up if I needed her or even just for a chat. I can't wait to treat her for her birthday which is next week but she's going to have to wait until March for it. 

I have found myself watching Playlist Live vlogs over and over this past week. They are just all so entertaining, funny and capture the whole experience in the way that it should be. My favourite ones are from Ellie & Jared, The Daily Bumps, Zoella & The Sacconejolys. I would love to go to it one day maybe in a couple of years as I think the whole experience would be amazing and a wonderful insight to the whole world of blogging/youtube. 

I was supposed to do a presentation on Monday for my ICT course however it got cancelled which made me feel good and bad. I say bas because I thought I was fully prepared and I just wanted to get it out of the way. I felt quite anxious on Monday morning so I definitely just wanted to do it and then it's done. However now I look back on it I wasn't prepared so I'm glad that my teacher did push it back as it gives me an extra week or so to fully prepare for it.


The Glam Guide - Fleur De Force | Overview & first thoughts ♡

Hey guys so today's blog post is going to be an overview and first thoughts on Fleur De Force's new book "The Glam Guide". I just got this today as I was planning on going to Whsmiths anyways to go and grab my Dad his birthday presents. However I was not planning on getting this until I saw it in store and I just had to pick it up. I've always loved Fleur she's so down to earth and I find it easy to relate to her. She lives in the country but comes to London often I grew up in the country so I especially love watching her vlogs. 

"Fleur De Force is one of the most successful beauty and fashion vloggers in the UK. She started making videos on YouTube in September 2009, and has been building her global audience ever since."

I can't quite remember when I first started really getting into Fleur's videos or blog posts I think it was around two years ago now. I just love how she's always so positive & fun she's also so welcoming and I never feel like she's forcing herself to produce content. When I heard that she was coming out with a book I was super excited just like when I hear Zoella was coming out with a book too. I couldn't wait to get my hands on either of them and I'm so glad that I have managed to pick it up today. 

The Book
Before I even saw any photos or seen any sneak previews on either her blog or youtube videos I had this image in my head that her book would be similar to Lauren Conrad's books. If you don't know what her books are like they're very well put together and easy to read as they have the perfect balance of text and photos. 

I was right Fleur's book is just as good as Lauren's and they both follow the same style. I have included some images of the book above however these are just a few as I didn't want to ruin it for those of you who don't yet own one. 

The book has nine different chapters which are:
- Introduction
- Beauty 
- Hair
- Fashion 
- Travel
- Health and fitness,
- Life, love, dreams and everthing in between
- Youtube and blogging
- A note to my subscribers
- Acknowledgements

Each chapter is filled with text, beautiful illustrations, diagrams and photos of Fleur. I especially love the balance of the text as it's not too much or too little. I find that books which have lots of text can often be overwhelming and hard to read. As well as this the combination of photos, illustrations and diagrams helps you to understand each topic a lot better than if the book just had photos for example. 

I haven't fully read it yet just flicked through the book however I'm already liking the end of each chapter which all have 10 quick tips. I think that these are really useful and a great way to round off the chapter. I am definitely going to be using some of these tips as they could become quite useful for everyday life. 

Overall it's a very beautifully put together book and I think that I shall be referring back to it throughout the rest of my life. I like that it doesn't just include one topic but many therefore a wide variety of people will enjoy it. I am so proud of Fleur as I know from watching her videos and reading her blog posts how much effort and time she has put into producing, writing and putting together this book.

Video | My Pamper Routine February 2015

Hey guys so today's video is my pamper routine February 2015. I hope that you like it as it was one of the first videos I have shot with my new tripod which I am loving!! I hope you liked it if you did please give it a THUMBS UP and SUBSCRIBE for more videos.


The Me Time TAG - Nominated by Hey Lucy

Hey guys so today's blog post is a tag themed one I usually do these on my channel however I don't want to do all of them on there. I was nominated by Hey Lucy to do this tag a while back but I've never gotten around to doing it. I really like the idea of having a tag completely based around relaxation. I think that it's personally so important to have me time especially with all of the hectic and chaotic lives that we all live.

What do you watch or read during me time?
I normally either catch up on TV programs that I have recorded or YouTube videos that I haven't had a chance to watch yet. I also watch movies that I haven't seen before or I haven't watched in a long time as they usually bring back good memories. I love reading the Daily Mail as I always find interesting articles on there as well as the magazine New. However at the moment I've been really into books so I'll usually just carry on reading the book that I'm currently reading. 

What do you wear during me time?
I either usually wear my pjs or comfy clothes such as leggings and a hoodie or just some tracksuit bottoms with a warm jumper.

What are your me-time beauty products?
I'd have to say carmex because you don't want to get chapped lips and also a face mask from Superdrug they always put me in a relaxing mood. 

Current favourtie nail polish?
I'm currently not really loving any as I've kind of gone off nail polish. I'm not allowed to wear it to work so I hardly paint them any more. However my all-time favourtie nail polish would be raspberry from Barry M.

What do you eat/drink during me time?
I usually eat a lot of rubbish if I'm honest it could either be a take-away, crisps, chocolate or sweets. However I am quite good when it comes to drinks I rarely drink fizzy drinks but I always drink tea or squash. 

Current favourtie candle?
As well as nail polish I've also gone off candles I don't really put any on that much any more as I've always got other things on my mind. However when I do I just love plain simple tea lights as sometimes scented ones can give me headaches.

Do you ever have outdoor me-time?
Definitely I often walk home from various places if I feel like I need to clear my head or if I'm not feeling like taking public transport. I find that this type of me-time is especially worth while as it helps you to re-evaluate your life and to see what's important in life and what isn't.

Would you ever go to see a movie alone?
No never. I'm one of those people that sees people who go and see a movie by themselves kind of weird (No offence if you're one of them!) it's just the way I see it. I mean a movie should be seen with two or more people so you can discuss it after and maybe go for a meal or go shopping. 

Favourtie online shop?
I really like to shop at either H&M or New Look as they're good when it comes to the delivery part. I also like to take advantage of when they cut down on postage and packing prices as sometimes it can be pricey. 

Anything to add? What else do you do during me-time?
During me-time I like to write blog posts, film videos, play computer games, think of ideas for future blog posts or videos, work on my book, tidy and organise my room, try different outfits out and many more things which I cannot be asked to write down.


Wishlist | If I Were To Spend Money #2

Hey guys so today's blog post is another "If I were to spend money wishlists" because yes I am still trying to save up money. I'm doing well so far I'm trying to use up more products instead of buying new ones before my old ones are even finished!! 

I really want to try these out as I saw It's Judy Time review them the other day on her channel and she liked them so I thought I should try them out. However I do think that they are quite expensive for the size of them which is why they're on my wishlist. I also want to try them out as they claim to be transfer proof, light weight and flexible so they sound great for a day or night out. Rimmel have also selected a nice range of colours as there's at least one colour for someone. I'd love to grab some in time for my Spring haul that I'm doing with another youtuber (keep your eyes out for that).

If you've been reading my blog for a long time now then you'll know how much I love jumpers like this. I love simple jumpers that have a picture, some words or a slogan on them. I think that they're super comfy and you can either wear them night or day. They're just perfect Sunday days when you just relax at home and watch movies all day while eating lots of junk food.

Ever since I got a bunch of my friends some Vs fantasies for Christmas I've been wanting to get some for myself. I've always seen these on Tumblr but never managed to get a hold of any. Until a Pink shop opened up in Westfield London which I was super excited about. I really want to try and get all of them (over time of course) as they all  fabulous both in packaging and scent. I chose to pick these two scents as passion fruit is one of my favourite scents and the other one because valentines day is coming up.

I really like this skirt it's super cute and I think it will be a great addition to my wardrobe. I don't own many skirts like this maybe one or two I also love the patterns as I've heard that floral is going to be really in this spring. My aim for this year is to save up but also when I do purchase any clothes I want to purchase ones that will last me a long time and not ones that stay in the back of the wardrobe.

The last thing on my wishlist is this polaroid camera I have seen these everywhere over the past few months they have just become so popular. I think this will be one of the main presents I would like for my birthday as I don't really have anything in mind I mean I'm only turning 19 it's not that big of a birthday. These cameras are just super cute and I'd love to have one so that I can then add the photos to my collage on my wall. However the only thing putting me off is the film which is quite expensive so if I ever got one I'd only use it for special occasions.


The Sunday Topic No.4 - Jobs

The Sunday Topic:
I wanted to start a series that I'm going to be running for the whole year one that's going to inspire people, make people happy and make them realise how beautiful life actually is!! So each Sunday I'm going to be posting a lifestyle post about something. This could be anything from good topics to dark topics that no one ever really talks about. By doing this I hope to open peoples eyes about how beautiful the world is but also how dark and lonely it can be. 

So here in the UK you are able to get a official job when you turn 16 however some people get a job earlier if they have a family business for example. In life we all go to school, college and then maybe university or do an apprenticeship in order to get a job. It's like main aim in life other than finding love, having a family, living in a nice house and generally having a comfortable life. 

There are many jobs that someone can have and I know that sometimes amazing jobs are handed to people on silver platters because their family have links or they take over from their mum or dad's business. However I guess that the majority of us have to work bloody hard in order to get the job that we want by climbing up the work ladder until you get to where you want.

The Good
Okay so the best thing about having a job is getting money right? Well I guess that's what most people think anyways which is true it's nice to be rewarded for your hard work. On the other hand a job offers you so much more from friendship to experience to having a new outlook on life. 

I personally think that jobs are a great way to help you grow and develop as a person. I have found myself to have grown and changed so much since I started my job back in August of last year. I'm so much more confident when it comes to talking to people I've never spoken to before as my job has encouraged me to speak to new people each day. I have made so many friends that I know I'll keep in contact with throughout the rest of my life. 

The Bad
Okay so sometimes you can have a job where the people aren't nice. I have experienced this when I had my first ever job I was treated badly just because I was the "newbie" and everyone thought they were better than me. I cried most evenings after I had finished my shift because I hated it so much. 

I managed to stay there for about a month before I quit because it made me so unhappy. Why should you stay in a job that doesn't make you happy well you shouldn't!! At that time in my life it was okay I was just about to start Sixth Form so I was going to be busy anyways so quitting my job wasn't that big of a deal. 

I was constantly being put down at work so I thought I'd rather be happy than be un-happy. I know that quitting your job when you're unhappy and you have to try and look after a family etc... would be especially hard but I would say if you're really unhappy then maybe consider quitting because there's always going to be a job which is much better than the one you have out there for you.  
Also you can have jobs that you just don't find fun or entertaining but these jobs are ones you kind of have to go through before you get to your dream job. I know that some people like to sit at a desk and do their work (that would be my type of job) whereas other people like to be active whilst working.

Do I have a job?
Yes I do have a job which I've had for around six months now and I honestly love every minute of it. Although at times it can be quiet and some times it can be mega busy you never get bored. The people I work with are all lovely and I'm so glad that I get to work with them on a weekly basis. 

Is my blog my job?
No. My blog is 100% a hobby and I'm hoping that it will always be don't get me wrong it would be cool if it was my job but that's not for me. I feel that sometimes when people get the chance to have their blog or youtube as their full time job their content can become all about advertising or sponsorships. It may be just be but sometimes I feel like some of the content is more forced than it would normally be. 

What do I want to do in the future?
My overall job dream would be to own my own business however I can't say what it would be about. In the nearer future though I'm planning on doing an apprenticeship in digital marketing which I should start later this year. I would then like to do a few years working in the media/marketing industry where I could pick up some skills and generally gain experience in that industry. 

What's your opinion?
