Song Lyrics F - Faded

Hiya!!

I was looking through my old posts and I realised that I hadn't done a song lyrics for a while, so I thought I would. I'm trying  to get a bit of variety to my posts at the moment, so please let me know any time if there's any particular topic you want my views about or advice on. 

So today its Faded by Alan Walker. I'm going to try and do more current songs, but F is hard!! Comment if you have any requests for upcoming letters... 

Also if you give me a shoutout then I will be haply to do so back! 

You were the shadow to my light
Did you feel us
Another start
You fade away
Afraid our aim is out of sight
Wanna see us
Alive

Where are you now
Where are you now
Where are you now
Was it all in my fantasy
Where are you now
Were you only imaginary
Where are you now

Atlantis
Under the sea
Under the sea
Where are you now
Another dream
The monsters running wild inside of me

I'm faded
I'm faded
So lost
I'm faded
I'm faded
So lost
I'm faded

These shallow waters, never met
What I needed

The Mess Of Our World At The Moment

Heya again.

I know this is the second serious post in a row, but I need, must say something about this issue. It has been bothering me for ages, and when would be a better time to post about it than now? I promise you guys that I will do something a bit more positive next time. Also I was thinking - maybe I should start doing slightly more personal posts too? Let me know in the comments if you'd like that!

Anyway. One of  the things that disgusts me the most in this world, (and yes there is A LOT) is that there are loads of people that have so much money that they're doing nothing with, and then on the other side of the world there are starving, dying people with no help at all. I find it awful when people clutching purses, or with a handbag over their shoulder, buying lots of expensive stuff, walk past a homeless person without giving them a second thought. Can you not spare one of your millions of pounds for a dying, lonely and starving person who has nothing? I heard a fact…

My Thoughts On The Manchester Attack

Heya guys.

Today's post is about a serious, sad topic that gets me so mad to the point of crying whenever I think about it. I'm sorry that it's not as upbeat as my usual posts, but I just had to let my feelings out about it, and what better place than on my blog?

May 22nd 2017. The day 22 people lost their lives to a suicide bomb in Manchester.

That is what that date will be remembered in history as.

And it makes me so angry! These innocent people, just going out to have fun at a concert - some were probably trying to escape the press of exams, some just having fun. They had no reason to worry about their safety. No reason to expect that that would be their last evening in the world. Because some stupid, selfish, HORRIBLE group thought that the best way of getting what they wanted was to murder people.

And the 59 injured. 59 people possibly never to walk again, or be able to use one or more limbs. Because one steupid, selfish group thought that the best way of getting what…

Piano Tutorials : The Hanging Tree

Hey guys!

So I was thinking about this blog, and since its supposed to be a lifestyle blog, I feel like I need more varied content. I already cover song lyrics, book reviews, random top 10s, fashion, hair and all that, but one of the other main things that I love to do is play piano.

Does anyone else ever get really annoyed by this? Often I really want to learn a new song or piece to play, but i've already tried to work it out myself and its just not right, and i've been searching on the internet for hours trying. to find the right notes! Well I want to stop this for other people - if this happens to you I will try my best to find the notes for you and put them on my blog! Please comment or contact me if you have a request.

So in the meantime, I will post the songs I already know in case you just want a song, any song, but you don't know what! I'll start off with The Hanging Tree (from The Hunger Games - I am OBSESSED with that series right now!!) but I'll probably…

How To Fall Asleep Faster

Heya guys x

If you're anything like me then it's a real pain trying to fall asleep - im always tired but as sonn as i get into bed my mind is taken up by random thoughts and it takes hours for me to rest! I have to wake up at 6 am to get to school on time, and most nights i dont get home from dance until about 9 and still  need my dinner afterwards. This makes it really hard to get enough rest, especially with practice and homework to fit in as well! So here's some tips to make the most of your time in bed and to maximise your sleeping time...

1. Stretch
Scientists have proven that stretching helps you fall asleep faster as your body can find a comfortable position quicker and easier. I find it also helps with dancing; if you get into a daily routine of stretching morning and night it will improve your flexibility so much, so fast!

2.  Drink loads of water
To be honest, I don't really know how or why this helps, but it does! It will leave your body feeling refreshed an…

Creating Characters - Guest Post By IndigoSky

Heya guys! Sorry again for being inactive lately I just had a complete writers block and couldn't think of any post ideas. Today's post is actually a guest post by IndigoSky (link at the bottom) about how to develop story characters. This is really useful if writing stories is your thing, as it's easy to make them typical, boring personalities with nothing to make them stand out. So here we go!

Hey guys, it’s IndigoSky here. Thanks to Apple Tree for letting me do a guest post on her blog! Anyway, let’s get on with this post. I love reading and creative writing, and I know that one of the hardest parts of writing a story is coming up with good, realistic, believable characters. So I’ve put together a list of rules to follow when coming up with characters: Rule 1: People aren’t perfect. It can be very tempting to make your characters have only positive characteristics and no negative side, especially if you’re writing a romance story, or something to do with superheroes. Don’t. …

Confidence: How To Boost Your Self Esteem

Heya guys x

Sorry I have been so inactive recently I've just had a lot going on.

Today's post is about self confidence. This is crucial in life as no self esteem=unhappy life. Especially going through 'the teen phase' can be super hard, with all the pressure from school, media and pretty much everything else. I'm trying to help you make the most of your life, and to feel confident within yourself and your body.

Know Your Strengths
This is the first step to building self esteem, because you have to be able to accept your talents and the fact that you are amazing. There is a difference between being vain and knowing that your talented, so don't be afraid to show off a bit! No one likes someone who is always putting themselves down, so lighten up a bit, take compliments and shine through your skills.

Improve Yourself
If you see something that you don't like about yourself, work on it and change it to make it better. For example if you don't like your hair, t…

It would make me even happier if you could please please please follow and comment, I am trying my hardest to make it easy for you to do that. It really makes my day to see that I have interaction with my viewers and I would love it so so so much if you could comment, follow and share. Thankyou!

The Top 10 Best Songs For Lyric Pranks

Hiyya guys x

Have any of you done a lyric prank? I'm obsessed with them! I've probably done a lyric prank to all of my contacts by now. The thing with lyric pranks is that you have to get a good song which has realistic lyrics that sound vaguely like normal conversation. So here's some songs that I've used and work so, so well and I've also put who they would be most suitable for.

1. Treat You Better - Shawn Mendes - anyone with a boyfriend/girlfriend)
2. Oath - Cher Loyd - friend (preferably if their going through a bad time)
3. Never gonna give you up - Rick Astley - boyfriend/girlfriend
4. Wings - Little Mix - friend/enemy
5. Don't Stop Me Now - Queen - friend
6. Into You - Ariana Grande - crush
7. I hate you I love you - Gnash - crush/boyfriend/girlfriend
8. See you again - Whiz Kalfa - a friend you haven't seen that day
9. Sorry - Justin Bieber - mum
10. Confident- Demi Lovato - bully

So there is my top 10 list of good songs to prank people with! Be re…

New Year Resolutions

Hiya guys, and happy 2017!!

It's finally 2017! Whoop whoop! I know everyone is saying how bad 2016 was,, with all those celebrities dying, and brexit and all that... but actually for me it was a pretty good year! I got my first boyfriend (and my first ex but that's a different story), started y8, got my braces, done lots of dance exams, and grew a lot personally and physically. Thinking back to this time last year, I can't believe how much I have changed!

Do you make New Years resolutions? I do. Most people only make three, but, being me, I have to go that extra step. Last year I did 18, but this year I did 27. Yes. 27. It's probably because there's so much in my life that I want to change... I won't bore you with all of them but here's my 5 most important ones...

•have more self confidence
•try and make my friend Christian
•get my forward walkover
•get over £20 in my bank (that doesn't sound like much but I spendk faster than Taylor Swift breaks up wit…

Best Friends Forever? - Update

Heya guys

In my last 'Best Friends Forever?' post I talked about my friend who I feel like is being a bit weird toward me. This post I will update you on the things that have happened recently.

So I have just had another sleepover with her, and it was ok. Apart from 90% of the time she was playing roblox on her laptop. She was actually addicted to it! Whenever I suggested anything she shrugged and ignored me. Even when I got to and left her house she didn't come to the door, she stayed in her room to play roblox. Please help!

Making The Most Of Your Christmas Holidays

Heya guys.

Now Christmas has been and gone, we have a week left of holiday! Yay! But after a few days of no school it can get a bit boring, just sat around all day with nothing to do. So here's some ideas of boredom busters, some indoor and some out, that don't involve 16 episodes of your fave tv show, or endless hours on social media. Use this however you want - you could do exactly what I say or maybe add your own twist to it to adapt to what you want. I don't mind. Just have fun and make the most of your time off school!

1. Go to the park
Going to the park can sound slightly boring and babyish, but especially with brothers and sisters it can be quite fun! Get rid of some energy that you're not going to use by watching tv, and burn off that chocolate while you're at it. Challenge your siblings to a race across the field or see who can swing the highest... the possibilities are endless!

2. Hit the shops
Grab your purse, bag and some mates and make the most of the po…

Becoming A Successful Blogger: How To

Heya guys x

So I know how hard it is to write a blog that people will enjoy and follow, and if you are new to blogging it can be really difficult to find viewers. Obviously I don't have very many followers yet but I have some knowledge which can help anyone looking for advice. I have been blogging for just under two years now and I have become more confident and comfortable in it and myself as time has gone on. So here are some tips on how to become more confident and better at blogging.

1. Be chatty
People like a friendly person who makes them feel at ease and happy. Use language you would use normally, use it to impress your readers not your english teacher! It might help to pretend that you're talking to your friend, so that you feel more relaxed and more cheerful.

2. Post what your viewers want to see
Your viewers are only going to read your blog if the content interests them. Mine is a lifestyle blog so I post a bit of everything, with a few areas that I know more about. Ch…

5 Things Not To Do On Christmas Day

Hey guys.

Doesn't everyone love christmas? I do. It's a time of year when you can relax, chill, have fun, not have to worry about school or homework or exams. However sometimes a few tiny things can just spoil the day for you and your family or friends. So here we have the ultimate list: 5 things NOT to do on christmas day. This will help you enjoy your day to the max!

1. Don't wake up too early
So this can be a hard one to avoid, especially if you have over-eager younger brothers or sisters (trust me I know the struggle - I have a 10 year old brother and 2 year old sister 😬 ) or even if you are just so excited to get the day started and prezzies opened! However setting your alarm for unreal hours (we're talking 3am - thanks bro) is the first way to make you ill all day and yawning over the turkey. A few years ago I woke up at about 4 by accident and therefore became ill and lost my voice for the whole day. Not amusing.

2. Don't overeat
This is an obvious one, but …

Top 5 Makeup Products

Heyyyy x

So in this post I am going to do another top 5 - this time of beauty products! I know some people say that you shouldn't wear makeup at this age but why not? There's no harm in it! Anyway mini rant over, lets go...

1. Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara
So this was actually one of the first pieces of makeup that I got, together with two other items - a lipgloss and a concealer (which will probably come up later), as it was in a 3for2 offer. Who doesn't love offers? About half the things I have bought in my life were on sale 😳 . Anyways. I love this mascara because it has the most amazing wand which distributes it equally! A lot of other mascaras that I have tried don't (probably because there was only one other which was from primark...)

2. Kiko lipstick no.902
Ok so this lipstick was recommended to me by a friend, as she has it and wears it to school everyday and looks amazing. It is the perfect shade as it is not too bold but also has an amazing shimmer and tint …

Pop Song Lyrics - E

Hiya guys

Sorry if i post a lot today, I can't really post regularly so I usually do a lot in one go!

Today it's pop song lyrics - E. This is quite an old song, from 2013, but you'd be surprised how little (recent) songs there are beginning with E! So here we go... its Elastic Heart by Sia.

And another one bites the dust
But why can I not conquer love?
And I might've got to be with one
Why not fight this war without weapons?
And I want it and I wanted it bad
But there were so many red flags
Now another one bites the dust
And let's be clear, I trust no one You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace Well I've got thick skin and an elastic heart
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubber band until you pull too hard
But I may snap when I move close
But you won't see me fall apart
'Cause I've got an elastic heart
I've got an elastic heart
Yeah, I've got an elastic heart And I will stay up through the night
Let's be clear, I won't …

Best Friends Forever?

Hey people (please please please comment ideas of names for you guys🙏  )

Have you ever had one of those amazing friends who makes you smile 24/7 and you really cannot imagine your life without?

I have. I do. In fact I'm having a sleepover with one now😊

She (lets call her Abi) is the one person I treasure the most in the whole world. I have known each other since we were 4 years old and ever since we have been the bestest friends in the whole wide world. I know this sounds really cringy but its true!

However recently it feels like we're not such good friends anymore. Last year when we started year 7 we were put in separate halves of the year which meant that we weren't in any of each other's classes. Since then she has made a lot of friends in her classes, which of course is fine, but uses my group as a kind of backup. It feels like she only comes to us when there is no one else.

Also I have a 2 year old sister (who to be fair is SUPER cute and adorable) who 'Abi&…

Pop Song Lyrics - D

Heya guys x

Pop Song Lyrics D today! This time it's 'Don't Let Me Down' by the Chainsmokers. This is my absolute favourite song... don't ask me why I just like it.😀

Crashing, hit a wall
Right now I need a miracle
Hurry up now, I need a miracle
Stranded, reaching out
I call your name but you're not around
I say your name but you're not around I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
I think I'm losing my mind now
It's in my head, darling I hope
That you'll be here, when I need you the most
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
D-Don't let me down Don't let me down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, don't let me down, down, down Running out of time
I really thought you were on my side
But now there's nobody by my side I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now

Pop Song Lyrics - C

Heya X

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I have been really busy! Here comes pop song lyrics - c. Today it will be... Change Your Life by Little Mix!



She captures her reflection then she throws the mirror to the floor
Her image is distorted screaming, "Is it worth it anymore?"
No-oh-oh
Are you scared of the things that they might put you through?
Does it make you wanna hide the inner you? You're not the only one so let them criticize, oh oh oh
You're untouchable when you realize, oh oh oh Change, change your life, take it all
We're gonna stick together, know we'll get through it all
Change, change your life, take it all (yeah, take it all)
You're gonna use it to become what you've always known
(Become what you've always known) His body starts to flicker like nobody wants to know his name
Just another soul with feelings but nobody's there to feel the pain
No, no, no They can rip you, bring you down, down to their size
But they will never get to the heart yo…

Pop Song Lyrics - B

Heyyyyyyy


Here comes no.2 of the pop song lyrics challenge! B is going to be ... Bad Blood by Taylor Swift!!




 ...'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
 You know it used to be mad love
 So take a look what you've done
 'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
 Hey
 Now we got problems
 And I don't think we can solve them
 You made a really deep cut
 And, baby, now we got bad blood
 Hey
 Did you have to do this? I was thinking that you could be trusted
 Did you have to ruin what was shiny? Now it's all rusted
 Did you have to hit me, where I'm weak? Baby, I couldn't breathe
 And rub it in so deep, salt in the wound like you're laughing right at me
 Oh, it's so sad to think about the good times, you and I
 'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
 You know it used to be mad love
 So take a look what you've done
 'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
 Hey
 Now we got problems
 And I don't think we can solve them
 You made a really deep cut
 And, baby, no…

Pop Song Lyrics - A

Hey guys x


I found this thing on the web where people post every day, each day writing the lyrics of a song from A-Z, so I thought I would try it!!


So todays song (A) is .... A Thousand Years by Christina Perri!


Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt, suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer
I have died everyday, waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything, take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath, every hour has come to this
One step closer
I have died everyday, waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
And all along I believed, I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love…

I'm Now Loving - Front Tie Tees

Hiya again x


At the moment I am so obsessed with Front Tie T-shirts, I think they are so cool and stylish, and feel amazing. I have two (neither of which can I find a picture of 😢). One is from Zara, it is green at the top going down ombre to red with teardrop shapes on like a watermelon 🍉. The other is grey and says 99% unicorn 🐎✨. They are amazing, I absolutely LIVE in them like all the time and they suit my style so much. Also while I am doing a fashion blog I need to just point out something else I live in - my burgundy Jack Wills hoodie - expensive but AMAZING!!! I actually cannot remember a non-school day which I have not worn this hoodie it is so warm and comfy and relaxing and soft... Could not NOT point that out😆


So that is the end of todays blog, see you soon and have a great half term may I just point out😆😆😆😆😁😁😊😊😃😃😊 😊 😊 😊

My Top 10 Dance Music Playlist

Hey guys x
I thought I would do something a bit different today, which I haven't done before... I'm going to do a 'Top 10'. And that is in quotation marks because that is now a ' thing'. If this goes well. So I'm basically going to tell you my top 10 of the given subject, and you will go and see if you like it! Please comment for me to see if it worked... 😊 So this is my top 10 of music easy to make a dance routine to, I hope you like! A lot of these are very emotional and I think that is really important when you dance, to get across the feeling and the mood of the routine as soon as possible. This is for all dance lovers like me who choreograph their own routines at home and cannot find any more songs they haven't already choreographed too (I really need one of these ;D) 💖❤

10. 'We're all in this together' by High School Musical - just had to put this in, its a great and uplifting song, for a performance its good as a last song. This sho…

Book review: Girl Online and Girl Online:On Tour

Hiya guys

In my last post (that I actually posted like 10 minutes ago) I said I would do a book review on both of Zoella's books. They are both really inspiring to me, as a blogger, photographer and secondary school student, as Penny (the main character) is too.
Girl Online is about a girl called Penny who has an anonymous blog which she posts on weekly. She has suffered from panic attacks since she was in a car crash as a young child, which seem to get worse as she publicly humiliates herself in front of boys and massive audiences. Penny is struggling to get back into her normal life again, until her parents announce a surprise trip to New York to organise a wedding! Her best friend Elliot helps her get through everything and anything, until she meets mystery rock-God prince Noah. Will he be the answer to her dreams, or will it all come crashing down in front of her feet?
In the next book, Penny is offered the chance of a lifetime- accompanying her popstar boyfriend an tour around …

I've been thinking...

Hiya guys 😘😘

I really need to tell you something  (🎤 I really really really really really really really like you 🎤🎤🎤😂) 
No, joking.

Anyway. 
I'm not happy with my blog. 
I don't feel like I'm connecting with my readers enough. 
I feel like I'm here to provide info, but I want to be regarded as a kind of Internet friend you can ask for help on anything, and can just cheer up your day.
Reading Zoella's two books (Girl Online and Girl Online:On Tour - if you don't know you should do, I might do a book review later...😀) has really inspired me, how Penny can write and the words seem to flow out of her fingers, how she always knows exactly what to say and exactly how to say it, how she connects with her readers and gets lots of lovely comments asking her for advice.
I want to be like Penny. 
I'll make you a deal.
I will try to be more friendly and chatty to you and help you, and post a mix of interesting posts.
Please can you (whoever you might be) feel f…

I'm Now Loving: Roll Neck Batwing Jumpers!

Hi guys, and welcome back to my blog.

Ok, it's a bit of a handful to say, (Challenge: try saying roll neck batwing jumpers 10 times as fast as you can!) but seriously they look AMAZING. Mine's grey (Isn't that the best colour for a jumper? It goes with everything...) and I wear it almost EVERYWHERE! As well as looking so stylish and now, they are so cosily gorgeous and warm. Mine is from GAP and with the intricate knitted pattern it just fully completes any Autumn outfit.

Can I just now say, I'm not going to be doing Fashion of the Week anymore because as you can see I've not done very well at keeping up with the monthly thing! Instead I'm going to do I'm Now Loving every so often without promising my readers that I will post every month.
That's all for now. Bye!

Seasonal: Christmas Traditions - New and Old

Hi guys, and welcome back to my blog.

Do your family have any Christmasy traditions that you always do every year?

Mine have loads. One of them, my favourite, I am going to tell you about today. Basically, instead of a normal advent calendar, we have parcels with the date on, all mixed up in a chest. Every day of advent, we (me and my little brother, and sister now,) have to find the right parcel and open it. Inside will be a note, along with some sort of object. This object might be, hmm, in fact I'll give you an example. Maybe for the 1st, we might have a note saying watch a dvd with popcorn and it might include a dvd and popcorn. Actually that's not a great example. Or if the note said go and buy a Christmas tree it might include a bauble. That's better. But basically this gives a great build up to Christmas, like getting a present or activity everyday instead of the same small chocolate or sweet. You really should try it, we've been doing it for about 5/6 years now…

Hi guys, and welcome back to my blog.

The Naughty Spoon Stealer

Hi guys, and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm gonna show you a story I wrote when I was younger.Its short but cute, but when I'm older I want to be an author in my spare time so It'll be nice to see what you think!

The Naughty Spoon Stealer The sun shone down on Summer Valley like a glittering diamond in the sky. It was a beautiful day, there was no sign of rain, or hail, or snow. As she woke up, 10-year-old Lulu Blaze was wondering just how long this wonderful weather would last, before it started pelting with rain again. “I wish this would last forever,” she sighed, pulling back the curtains. Just then her lazy, 8 year old sister Lily, groaned and slowly sat up. “Is it time for breakfast yet?” she asked greedily. As an answer to her question, a voice sounded from below; “Come down for breakfast, girls!” Mrs. Blaze called. The two sisters sprinted down the stairs as fast as lightning to the kitchen. Leaving Lulu to do all of the work, Lily panted over to the table. At that…
