Tea and Things // 02


Hey lovelies! Since it's the start of a new month I thought a little catch-up was due and so here we are with another 'Tea and Things' post. Although there have been a few shitty days where I've felt awful mentally (what's new though!) 2017 has been LOVELY so far. I honestly don't much to complain about and at the moment I'm in a really positive mindset, but that may be due to the fact I'm currently watching Dodie's latest vedif video in the background hehe. Anyways, as usual this post has hardly any structure, just a lil' ramble for you to enjoy and me to cringe looking back on in a few months time aha!

- GCSE's eek!
The number 1 thing on my mind at the moment, I'd have to say is GCSE's. I am picking my options this week and ahh have already had that scary moment of 'Oh god, what do I want to do with my life' that I was not expecting to have, age 14. Although I know GCSE's aren't the be-all-and-end-all It feels so strange to be forced to think of the future like this and have to decide on a career path and subjects that I'm not even sure I'll use in 5x years time. What if I hate them? What if choosing the wrong subjects means I'll do bad in the exams? Ohhh boy. In case you're interested though, the options  I think I'm going to pick are: History, French, Geography and Product Design. Any extra advice from you guys would be much appreciated though!

- Internet Buds
Lately I've also been chatting to my blogging friends a lot more and I feel like I've gotten a lot closer with all of them. It's so frustrating because even though I talk to them every day, we live so far apart and aweee I just really want to meet them! I think that's another one of my goals this year. To meet at least one of my internet besties in real life (no matter how many trains I have to take to get there hehe!) Another exciting lil' thing coming up this month is a big Spring Collab with some other bloggers + I'm doing a swap box with my absolute fave Charlotte (from vieaveccharlotte) which I cannot wait to post. 

- Gym Lovin'
I've always been really into health and fitness but it wasn't until about 2 months ago I actually joined the gym, and now, no joke, I absolutely love it. I never really talked about it on here (mainly because I thought it was going to be one of those 'failed' New Years resolutions!) but it's become a solid part of my weekly routine now and I couldn't be happier. I now go 3x a week and although I'm definitely no fitness junkie I've really felt the benefits lately in my mood as well as just body. 

- Dodie Dodie Dodie!
And finally, something I'm literally counting down the days for this month... THE DODIE CONCERT! I'm seeing her on March 18th in Islington with one of my best friends and oh myyy am I excited. She recently mentioned her set list for tour in a video and it includes all my favourite originals of her's + Rusty Clanton is performing as her tribute wooh! Do let me know if any of you guys are coming to any of her shows too, I'd love to know.


QOTD: GOT ANY ADVICE FOR GCSE'S? 
In other words, HeLp mE

  4. Product Design sounds like a fabulous GCSE to do, I wish I'd had the chance to study something like that when I was younger! I have a big love for all my blogger friends as well - box swaps are such fun, I'm sure you'll love yours!

  6. Don't stress too much about your GCSEs, just choose subjects you enjoy and that's the best you can do! They are important, but not the most important choice you'll make in your education! X

  8. The fact that you're choosing your GCSE's makes me feel so old hahah, but good luck with them! I remember being so scared that every decision back then was so important but don't forget to have fun and enjoy your education if you can.

    This was such a cute post, really enjoyable read!

  9. For the subjects, if you can, ask someone that are taking those to tell you what they are doing or maybe show you what they do in class. That could help you see if what they actually do would interest you or is not quite what you thought it would be :) the design one looks so interesting though! x

    These look sooooo good! However, don't really agree with the recipe for the crêpes :S

  10. Don't worry too much about your GCSE's. Just make sure that you are picking subjects that you like and will want to learn about for the next few years. If you get a feeling in the first couple of weeks that you don't like it, I'm sure you will be able to change (at least I could have if I wanted to). And I hope you have a lovely time at the Dodie concert x

  12. I have my GCSE's this year and I'm going to tell you know... these last few months of year 11 are S T R E S S F U L so make sure you choose subjects you enjoy. HOWEVER, GCSE's are not the end of the world and as long as you keep you options open for picking A-levels everything will be fine. I chose triple science, history, geography and french and I also have to do maths, re and english.

  15. My advice: keep drinking tea. Joking(or am I)?? I wish you the best results for your GCSES. Just be 100% sure that you're prepared for any curve-ball thrown and I'm pretty sure you'll strive through such stressful exams.

  17. Best of luck with your GCSEs! The best advice that I can give you is the chose your subjects for you, chose the subjects you enjoy already or are really interested in studying, like you said they're really not the be all and end all so just make sure you spend two years enjoying them over anything :)

  18. My only advice for GCSE's is to pick things you like. They really don't matter much in later life so enjoy them (as much as possible) I wish I'd picked geography and art as I loved them but at the time I was pressured into languages as we thought that they wouldn't be more beneficial. xx Always pick what you love and the rest will follow xx
