Springtime Splendours

30 Mar 2014


  Hey Everyone.
So if you live in the same part of the world as me you will know that the clocks went forward last night and summer time officially began! Hmm I have a feeling we have a lot more wintry days to come though. Nonetheless, today was a beautiful spring day. It was bright, sunny and warm. For the first time in months I could go outside with just a cardigan without turning to ice! 
So I thought I would share some photos with you, of daffodils, lambs and my beautiful little nephew who just loves being outdoors. The day came to a close with a gorgeous sunset which illuminated the sky, an apt finish to a really great family Sunday.
P.s. Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there, I hope you were spoilt.

When life takes over...

23 Mar 2014


Life is pretty mental at the moment so I am taking a break from blogging, hence why I have been missing in action for the last couple of weeks. I literally have assignments coming out of my ears! well no, not literally...that would just be weird and I should probably see a doctor.
I don't really know the point of this blog post other than just to say 'hello', 'I'm still alive' and ask you how you have all been? I miss talking to you and being a part of the blogging community.
I would also like to ask what you would like to see on my blog when I come back, because I will be back with a bang in a few weeks hopefully :) I feel like my blog doesn't fit into any one category and I get bored of doing the same things really quickly. I'd like to do something that involves photography so I can use my fancy camera, but I just don't know what direction I really want to take my blog in! I think it will always be a mixture of different kind of things. I want to come up with something quirky and unique, hopefully I will have thought of something fun by the time I come back! In the meantime, follow me on twitter (on the sidebar) and Instagram @naydeen_93. I'm a little bit addicted to Instagram at the moment so I would love to see you over there. 

Love you guys!

Fresh Start Sunday #3

9 Mar 2014


Back to teaching practice I go tomorrow. I'm nervous. I really find myself doubting my capabilities a lot when it comes to teaching. It is so challenging I can't even explain. I have to prepare around 3 lessons a day, write lesson plans for each one, then I have to go into the classroom and deliver it whilst trying to keep their interest, trying to keep them quiet and so on. It is extremely hard, trust me. I have to notice the behaviour of each individual, are they working, are they learning, do they have their homework done, I have to keep track of so many people. On top of that I have to do a load of assignments for Uni, talking about my learnings and experiences in school. Being a student teacher is incredibly intense. 
I am sure all of you face challenges every day too. Whether it be school, work, parenting, house-work, looking after a love one, the list of challenges people face are endless.
What we have to do is remember that we can do it. We have to take one day at a time and tell ourselves that we are capable of doing everything we have to do, and doing it successfully. I think a positive mindset of our own abilities is the real secret, after all if you just believe in yourself you can do anything.

Interview with a blogger | Hanily

5 Mar 2014

Hey Everyone!
Time for the final edition of 'Interview with a blogger' I have really enjoyed doing this series. My all time favourite thing about blogging is getting to interact with so many amazing people. Everyone I have met through blogging have been nothing less than courteous, pleasant and forthcoming. Doing this series was one of the greatest ways to interact with you all. The whole process of tweeting each other, emailing each other, coming up with questions that are in some way personal, and reading your answers has been so much fun. I hope I continue to get to talk to you all whether it be in comments, over twitter or wherever, I hope I make lots of new blogging friends throughout this year. 

Anyways, sorry for rambling on. Now onto the stars of today's blog post Hana and Emily from the blog Hanily. These girls have been so sweet since I started talking to them. They are 14 year old best friends. They are only over a month blogging but I really hope they keep it up and are finding it as fun as I am. And girls, never be afraid to ask me any questions! blog related or otherwise, I have just got out of those terrible & wonderful teenage years and I am sure I have some wisdom to share :P 

Could they be any more gorgeous? 
1.Why did you decide to start a joined blog?
 We decided to start a joint blog because it was on our best friend bucket list for 2014.

2. Where do you get your inspiration for your posts?  
We get our inspiration from topics that we tend to talk about, and just our lives in general. We also get some of our inspiration from 'beauty gurus.

3.What is the best thing about sharing your blog with your friend?
 We love sharing a blog together :) we always have motivation to write posts and the job is shared so it's not as heavy going. We share ideas and love blogging in our spare time together.

4. Give a brief description of your blog that will convince people to go and check it out
Our blog is by two best friends that love each other to pieces. We write about general life, and also beauty so there is definitely going to be something that everyone can hopefully enjoy. We have so much fun writing our blog and hope that people will have the same enjoyment reading it as we do making it! 

5.What do you think are the most important qualities in a friend?
 The most important qualities in a friend is for them to be: funny, loyal, easy to talk to, nice, outgoing, bubbly, and caring :)

6. What do you think are your biggest achievements in life so far?
 Our biggest achievement in life so far is our friendship. We have come so far with each other and have got through some really hard things that we know we wouldn't have got through without each other :)

7.If you could each be someone else for a day, who would it be and why?
 Han: Katniss Everdeen because she loves her friends and family unconditionally and protects them. She's grateful for everything she has and she's strong and loyal.
Em: I would love to be Ellie Goulding because I think that she's so talented! She's so pretty and so successful and I would love to be that successful in the music industry. Her voice is so unique and she has had so many amazing opportunities, and she seems so lovely too! 

8.What picture is on your phone screensavers right now? (describe it or include it if you like)
 Han: My phone is in repair atm *woops* but I had a slideshow of all my favourite pictures from my phone (most were of me and Em).
Em: My lockscreen is a picture of me and Han when we went shopping. We tried on these gorgeous dresses from Miss Selfridge which I ended up getting for half price in the sale!

9. If you could clothes shop in one store for the rest of your life, where would it be and why?
Han: New Look because it sells everything I could ever want to wear.
Em: I don't clothes shop in just one place so this is hard for me! I would probably say Zara because the clothes there are quite elegant and sophisticated which is the style I tend to wear.  

10.Where do you see yourselves in 10 years from now?
 Han: I haven't a clue, who knows where life will take me? Hopefully I will still be blogging and maybe will be a qualified midwife.
Em: I'm exactly the same - I have no clue... But hopefully I'll be doing a lot more blogging and getting into the industry and journalism and the media. Hopefully I'll be living in a studio apartment in London :)

I think those girls have such a lovely friendship, I think we all dream of a friendship like theirs!

Check out my previous 'Interview with a blogger' posts - A whole lot of Chitty ChatThe Giggles of LifeMaking Things Alive,
All of these girls really seemed to enjoy getting involved and I'm really happy to have had them and to have made them smile even just for a minute, that's what life's all about after all :) 

Kisses,
    ♥

Fresh Start Sunday #2

2 Mar 2014


I love this quote. If we all just enjoyed every moment imagine how happy we would be. I think people spend far too much time regretting the past and worrying about the future, in the meantime we are forgetting to appreciate the moment we are in. 
This is especially relevant for me. This week coming is my last week in University, ever. Instead of regretting not making the most of my four years in Uni and worrying about what I am going to do next year in the big bad world, I am just going to try and love every moment of this coming week. Going to the library, getting a coffee in Smokey's cafe, taking in the atmosphere of the college bar, having a chicken and cheese panini in the Bialinn, sitting in a lecture, walking across the bridge on my way home. All such small things. But things I have done every day for the past four years. Things that I will miss. So I am going to relish every moment of my last week on campus. Wow I'm feeling kind of emotional writing this. It's difficult to leave behind a life you are used to. I remember feeling exactly like this when I was moving from secondary school to Uni and that literally feels like yesterday. Life moves scarily fast sometimes, make the most of now.
