My exam results + a burst of motivation and advice

 (Quick disclaimer: Obviously this post is more intended towards people younger than i am as i can't comment on a-levels, but who knows maybe if you're older than me you will also benefit from this. I'm in no way trying to show off, i worked hard to get these results and i know some people probably did better, but i'm super happy with these.)

Hey guys, so i got my GCSE results on Thursday and i love finding out what other people got so i thought i'd share mine with you all, how i got them and to offer you all a bit of motivation and advice.

I got 1 A*, 4 A's, 4 B's, 1 Merit and 1 Distinction, wowwwwwww! I am so happy and proud of myself, but  this time last year i was definitely not on these grades. I use to be so awful at maths i left year 10 on an E grade, but in year 11 i worked hard, was determined, had a great teacher and in November(3 months in) i bagged a C, and in March i got my B and if i didn't drop it i think i could of got an A. So i just want to encourage/motivate you all with this, nothing is impossible, you can achieve the things that seem impossible to you! I'm a living example.
Also some more advice i'd give is to speak out if you've got a rubbish teacher, at the end of the day these are your grades, switch classes or get tutoring, anything that will help you.

Finnally, RELAX. A lot of people need to just calmdown. Just have some time to relax, get in the right mindset; yes exams are very important, it may determine a part of your life, but it doesn't determine your whole life ever. Also getting stressed isn't going to help anything at all, just do your best, your best is enough and all anyone can ever ask of you. You will be ok.

So to summarise, workhard, do your best, relax and just enjoy it! Nothing is impossible for you. I hope this has been been helpful to some of you, comment below what you think, lots of love.

The land of beautiful blondes, vikings and cycling

I've recently come back off holiday from Denmark, we were staying with some of my family and apart from being homesick i had a lovely time and i thought i'd share it with you. 

When we arrived we went straight to Lego land, it was so fun, i went on so many rollarcoasters, which isn't very like me, but i had a bit of a "yolo" moment... In all honesty it is beautiful though, i mean everything is made out of Lego!!! It's pretty cool.
 We also went to a cherry tree farm and picked lots of cherries(and ate alot too), i didn't get any pictures though because i forgot my camera, but that too was SO much fun, i love cherries. 

Whilst we were in Denmark, i really wanted to go cycling; i don't really get a chance to here in the UK because of the lack of cycle routes, but Denmark has SO many, everyone rides their bike. I was riding in the sunset aswell, it was so picturesque(until i crashed in to a hedge, it was dignifying)
 In the city we were staying, there was a really old village they'd made sort of museum-y which i found really interesting. I'm really in to history and culture, it was quite surreal seeing how people use to live.
 And of course, you can't be on holiday and not go to the beach; it was B-E-A-UTIFUL. White sand, clean blue sea.
So, that was my holiday, comment below how yours was, i love hearing what you guys have to say. Thanks for reading!

L'Oreal Hair Expertise EverRiche Nourishing & Taming Shampoo & Conditioner (very dry rebellious hair) review + my hair routine.

2 for £9 at Boots. [Shampoo] [Conditioner]
This is quite an odd thing to review, but i was reading essiebutton's blog, she did a review about these products and loved it so i went out and got it to see for myself.

This is the best highstreet/drugstore shampoo and conditioner I've ever used. It just scores points in everything. It claims to: "leave hair feeling nourished, protected from dryness. Your hair feels satin soft and incredibly silky. Instantly tamed, your hair is easy to style and flows sumptuously with a brilliant shine." Usually i find if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is, but no, this actually did what it said it would do. It left me with really soft, healthy looking, shiny, alive hair. It's sulfate-free aswell which is a bonus, it has botanical oils too and anything that sounds natural just instantly grabs my attention. It smells great too, it's sort of like a vanilla smell, but not a sickly one,  a really natural vanilla, not too overpowering at all and the smell lasts aswell. They also do one for "dry and fine hair." I really recommend these products if your hair fits in to either category, it's amazing.


Whilst we're on the subject of hair, i thought it would be fun and even helpful to some of you to find out my hair routine. I have curly hair, because of the structure it's very dry and very frizzy, so i only wash it once or twice a week, which sounds disgusting, but it just doesn't really get greasy or dirty, it's just so dry.

 Before i wash my hair i brush it out, this makes it so much easier to wash and reduces tangles when you're finished. When I've finished washing my hair i rinse it with cold water, it just makes it a lot shinier. Then I just sort of grab my hair with a towel so it's not dripping wet, but still really wet and then i apply the John Frieda Frizz-ease Extra Strength HairSerum, after this i just sort my parting then leave my hair alone to air dry, (if you're in a rush use a diffuser) I don't brush or comb it when it's wet as i'm sure most of you know why, but when your hair is wet basically it's at its weakest which means it breaks a lot easier.
When my hair's damp/mostly dry i finger comb it (or you can use a wide tooth comb), because it's easier for me to remove tangles, i don't know if it's the best thing to do, but it's what i do.  I don't use any heat on it, occasionally i might straighten bits to flatten it down or make it look longer, but that's quite rare. I don't recommend using a brush at all if you have curly hair, it's going to make it go frizz-crazy.

That's basically it really, once a month i also deep condition by using a hair mask, it's a home made one and consists of coconut oil, avocado, honey and some other ingrediants, i'm planning on doing a post about this at a later date.

This is all just stuff I've picked up, i hope you found this interesting or helpful, leave me a comment below if you have any questions or tips for me or even if you just enjoyed reading this.

10 things about me you may or may not know

  1. The meaning of name is "like the moon" which i LOVE. It's a celestial name and I think it's beautiful and holds a lot of symbolism in a way? a lot of encouragements I've got from people have been about that, which is lovely.
  2. I wasn't born in the UK, I'm full Persian, i think it's pretty cool now, but i use to hate it when i was younger.
  3. I tend to have a lot of outspurts of love, i just  love love love people, i just think people are amazing and i really genuinely enjoy getting to know them. I also have the bestest friends in the entire world.
  4. You probably did know this, but i'm a Christian.
  5. I use to play the piano, once upon a time i was really good, but i quit and that's probably my biggest regret. I can still play a little, but obviously not as good.
  6. I get told a lot that i'm really weird, but i think it's because i just speak my thoughts.
  7. I am bi-lingual.
  8. I actually really care about the environment, and i'm really in to healthiness and natural/organic things
  9. My favourite place in the entire world is this little building on t-street.
