Where have I been | GCSEs, Prom, 16, School


Hello friends! I've been finding it a bit hard to get back into the blogging spirit again. There were literally days where I've stared at my blog trying to figure how I can start posting. That's the reason yesterday's blog post was so bad. If you haven't seen it, go look at it. It was basically a shameless self promo to my YouTube channel the entire post. I'm sorry. I hadn't been blogging because I had exams meaning I had to study. Even though it seems like no amount of studying would make those papers any easier. This is way it was so awkward to take photos for my blog agin too. I haven't camera whored in ages, which is why my posing is a bit awkward too. Arggg! Even writing is weird. I don't know what to talk about!  So here's the things I've been up to in the months I haven't been blogging.


GCSEs 

My GCSEs were so hard. Like, super hard! I'd never been more stressed out in my short life before. I took history, ICT, art for my GCSEs and  everyone in my school had to do math, science, religion and English literature and language. I hated all of those papers. I honestly hate doing exams. I'm so much more of a practical gal. I guess if I had to choose the papers that went okay I'll say; art, English language and science (I haven't actually done science yet but I have a really good feeling about it). Do you do GCSEs? How'd did they go?


Prom

I guess the only good things about doing your GCSEs is that prom comes right after. Yours truly were one of the little group of people that planned prom. My friend Hazel said that it's super weird to plan the prom in her school. But not in mine. It's exciting! I kinda basically did it to be that girl who plans the prom in one of those all-American movies. You know the one! So I've been pretty stressed with planning that. I'll make sure to blog about prom when it finally happens on the 29th of June, so stay tunnel for that! ;-)


My birthday 

I turned 16 years old on the 2nd of April. Which is honestly STILL the weirdest thing to say since I look like I'm 13 y/o. I did have a birthday party despite not liking parties dedicated to me. My mum wanted to me to have one because she though eating Chinese food in our living room while we watch Eastenders wasn't enough. Even though a couple sweet and sour balls  and the remote to myself don't seem all so bad. I ended up going to the Global Buffet in Watford for a dinner party with five of my closest friends. I loved it so much! Probably even more than the Chinese and TV idea. Below are a few pictures taken from my birthday. 



Last day of school

We had our last day of school right before the exams stared. It sorta lasted for two days though. Our last day in school uniform and our last day overall. It was so emotional. It's weird because I never really like school but having a last day of anything will probably even make you a little bit emotional inside. Emphasis on the 'INSIDE'! I didn't cry. Well, I haven't cried yet but prom will be the last day everyone in my year will be together so maybe... Below I inserted a few pictures of the last two days of school. 



I can't really think of any more things that have happened which were worth blogging about. I promise I'll get better at blogging and keep to schedule. I also hope you enjoyed this blog post which was a bit more personal to be honest. Thank you for reading!

Yours Truly, Arabelle Akinfe

Summer Makeup Routine

Hey everyone! Woah I haven't blogged in ages! Summer is just around the corner and I don't know about you but I'm very excited! It's not like I'm going to be doing anything exciting during summer. I plan on taking lots of pictures for my blog and my Instagram. If I haven't mentioned this before I'm trying to grow my Instagram account. I honestly feel as if Instagram is becomes such a great way of social networking and growing bigger so that's what I want to do. I'll be taking pictures for my blog just because it seems like people like it. I like it. It's sort of like a visual diary I get to share with everyone who reads my blog. 
But, for now I've filmed a summer makeup routine that I posted on my YouTube channel: ugharabelle a few days ago. This will give you an idea of the makeup I'll be wearing in the photos. I rarely ever change my makeup so I'll always be current unless I say so. Have a great day! Thanks for reading and don't forget to check out the video below! XOXOXO

In random

5 minutes, lets go.

 It is currently 13:15pm and lunch starts at 1:20pm meaning I five minutes to write something on this blog that might be eligible to upload. I like having control. Is that weird? Having control of things makes me feel powerful which tbh is probably a bad thing since I’m pretty sure that how bad world leaders begin. 1:17pm. Wow, I take long to write. Lunch is about to start yet here I am sitting in my schools ICT room, blogging. Dang! I am a weirdo. Normal people wouldn’t be doing this. I won’t really be doing. This isn’t me. But lately, I’ve enjoyed being the girl sitting in the back of the room not saying anything. It’s been exciting, weirdly. 1:19pm. One more minute. Just one more minute till lunch begins and this computer room becomes filled with a bunch of year 7s ready to playing Club Penguin or Stardoll or MovieStarPlanet. That’s probably an inaccurate prediction of what 11 and 12 year olds are doing but oh well. All I know is that when I was their age, online games were the sh*t ! Then again, I’m speaking from a girl who really only had one friend. 1.20pm. It’s already full in here and I’m starting to feel self-conscious. Ewk! I should go because I honestly feel as if someone’s going to look at my computer screen and think I’m crazy. They may be year 7s and not even know me but I still sort of feel weird about them seeing me blogging.

new me, new blog name


Oh hey! You most likely don't remember little ol' me, Arabelle because I haven't blogged in ages. I've been busy- and I know that's like my number one main excuse but I actually have been busy. I can't exactly say what I've been doing but you'll know soon enough. In other news' I'm not happy with what my blogs become. Before my blog was a place where I can share my personal thoughts and ideas of stuff and I guess now it's become someplace where I have to post, or I have to post that. not anymore! Don't get me wrong I looove blogging and talking about fashion, but I would loove to make my blog more personal. I first made this blog because I loooved talking about my random situations, inspired by my favourite (and still favourite) tv show, awkward. So, now I'm going back to my old roots of blogging, but don't worry I'm still gonna be a 'fashion blogger' I guess. I just gonna be more 'personal fahion blogger'- get it?

I'm a different person now. Wait, that sounds so cringy. I've changed my blog name and you're probably wondering why. Calling my blog, Arabelle Akinfe, sounded like such a cliche thing to call it. From now in, I'm not gonna be a cliche person. I'm gonna be myself. I'm gonna blog the things I wanna blog and be...normal? Now my blog is called 'The Arabelle Diaries'. Why? Because of the TV 'The Carrie Diaries'. T.v. shows have always had some way of inspiring me. I'm not really sure, but I just finished re-watching that show and now I'm feeling inspired, which I guess is why I'm blogging right now on an old computer, that you have to press the full stop button twice for the button to work, Yep, how amazing!

So, if you want to know about me, myself and I or all the fashion stuff, usually bloggers do. Then stay tuned. Read my blog every Sunday and Wednesday and I'm pretty sure, you'll be impressed with my horrid, modifying, awkward yet normal life I live and my horrid, modifying, awkward yet normal style I have.

THANKS FOR READING! GO LIVE LIFE, EAT CHEESE AND BE HAPPY!
XOXO
