Today I'm bringing you another guest post from the lovely Meg from 'Simply Meg'. I've been loving her posts and she's been nothing but lovely every time we have spoken, so definitely show her some love. As always, all of her links will be linked at the end of the post.
Hi, it's Meg and I'm from my blog 'Simply Meg' which you can check out here. I hope you're all having a good day and enjoy this post! 
I love the idea of this series going on on Emily's blog and was so happy when I found out she was looking for people to guest post and that's how I ended up here! Anyway, lets just get on with this.

This is my favourite quote and it means a lot to me. I practically live by this quote and even have it in a small polagram style photo on my wall! 
It means so much to me and I put this quote into use about a week ago when my little sister came to me asking for help on her homework because she didn't understand a new topic she w…

Little Things #ThursdayThoughts

Hello lovelies,
I hope you're having a lovely Thursday!

I'm fortunate to have a job in which my employer is lovely and I enjoy it because I learn something new every time I step through the door. There are so many pros and cons to working when you're a teenager but I definitely feel the positives outweigh the negatives.
Work can be difficult, it's something you have to do to earn money because money is what keeps you comfortable (sadly, most things cost) and there are many benefits to having it. It just makes life easier! We put ourselves through jobs we really don't enjoy to earn money. This is my second job and although my first was better paid, it got repetitive and I wasn't enjoying the early mornings: 6am starts are not the best! Although these were only little negative things (and there were far more positives) it wasn't something I couldn't continue with due to my hours.  However, I now work a job I enjoy a lot more.
However. this post isn't…

Freak? #ThursdayThoughts

Last Thursday I launched a new series called #ThursdayThoughts (you can read the first post here). It got a wonderful response and as a result I've opened it for you guys to share your thoughts too. Today's quote was chosen by the beautiful and brave Tara from Dancing Through Life. I'm going to leave all of her links at the end of this post, so make sure to pop over and say hello.

Before arguments start about how messed up the Heathers movie is and how it romanticized teen suicide (which it really doesn’t), you must listen and see the musical (it’s on YouTube) to fully understand why I love it so much and why I am writing about a quote from one of the songs. Underneath all the drama of the movie and musical, there are some really good underlying messages one can take away from it. The main one being: our differences. Throughout the whole musical, characters are being bullied for what makes them a “freak” according to society. And in the end, they finally learn how to celebr…

Plymouth & Pont-Aven | Holiday 2016

Holidays are the perfect time to take a deep breath, sit back and relax. At the moment I'm two weeks away from half term and couldn't be more ready for it. I'm trying my best to work hard but I have to admit I'm getting a little tired (this is partly my own fault because I've ended up staying a little later that usual). So I'm going to take my free time and spend it have a look at my holiday photos this year and, of course, there seemed like no better time to share them with you too!

Passion #ThursdayThoughts

Hello lovely people,
I hope you're having a wonderful day and have spent moments doing something you really enjoy.
As you're reading this I am helping at my Sixth Form open evening and last Thursday I was doing the exact same, except that it was for the entire school. Whilst wondering the Chemistry department I came across a year 7 boy, short in height, friendly and, more than ever, passionate about what he was doing in that moment. 
He asked me: 'can I show you how to do this experiment?' and although, I've done the test for hydrogen many times over the course of my school career, I said yes because I could see the excitement in his eyes to talk me through what he was doing. As he added the Magnesium to the Hydrochloric acid I placed my thumb over the test tube and he lit a wooden splint in the bunsen burner. He swiftly brought the splint over and got me to move my hand a squeaky pop sound could be heard, indicating that hydrogen was present. Hearing the pop his …

My Everyday Autumn Make Up

I like to keep my make up single, defining my features and looking as natural as possible. Occasionally adding a bold lipstick to venture out of my comfort zone or embrace the weather outside, which is why I reach for a darker or berry tone in Autumn.
