Hello. I'm sorry I haven't posted on this blog in a long time. I sort of forgot :/ I'm planning on making a better quality blog filled with posts about things I care about (more information about it soon!). However, today I need to ask for your help.

I need money. I know this is what every girl my age says when they need more money for makeup, clothes, etc, but I need money for school supplies. I don't have much money and it is now affecting my school. My parents can't pay. If anyone gives even 1 or 2 pounds I will be very grateful because I could buy some pens and pencils.

I know I can't meet any of you in real life so I made a paypal account so you can give money on there.

Thank you for any support you give :) what goes around comes around and I hope I can help all of you in the future!

Lots of love,

First Day At Secondary School

So today was my first day at Secondary school! I was a little bit nervous but mostly excited because it's a big movement forward in my life... it also means I'm getting older X( .

So I will tell you things I liked things I didn't, things I regret and things I'm happy I did.

What I liked:

  • That the teachers were nice (let's just see how long that lasts, though...)
  • That you have a lot of freedom. Not like my primary school where you have to ask to do mostly everything you want to do.
  • That the teachers made the lessons even slightly fun.
Things I didn't like:

  • That you have to ask to take your blazer off,
  • That you have to be absolutely perfect or you get a detention,
Things I regret:

  • That I put too much stuff in my bag thinking I'd need it and I'd get a detention if I didn't bring it when I didn't use any of it (except pens, pencils etc.)
  • That I didn't get dressed for PE quicker (because then my tie ended up being a mess and my shirt was all scrunched up and I had to go on a hunt for the toilet to fix it.)
  • That I didn't have my planner out all the time (It has a map on it...)
Things I'm happy I did:

  • Put my hand up for stuff even when I didn't know the answer (I might have seemed nerdy but you know I'm probably never going to do it again - why not take advantage of this moment?)
  • Acted like I liked the teachers...
  • Talked to people I didn't know.
  • In my break, went on a mini - tour (with my friends... not with an actual tour guide) around the school in our break and after lunch. It definitely helped me get to know the school better!
So yeah, I already love it and I can't wait to go tomorrow. I'm not sure if by next week I'll still feel the same but I feel like next week will be better. At the school I'm going to, there's a two - week rota and next week I have music two days in a row! Yay! I also have a dance lesson! I feel like I can make a new start at the school I'm going to and don't have to worry about stuff I've said before. Even though some people are going to the same school as me, only the people who see me for me are in my main tutor. Other than that it's a new start. I'm so excited. I'm sure most people will have already started their Secondary (maybe a couple years back?) but if you've just started just know that everyone is as nervous as you are and maybe even more. Good luck! Hope you have a great year! If you've already messed up, go and fix it :) You never know... it could get you out of a detention :P

Film reviews | Finding Dory

So I have decided (after watching this film) to do a blogging series called Film Reviews! If you like this series then be sure to comment and tell me! In case you were wondering, I won't be telling you about the whole film, just some parts that weren't important to the story or parts that you'll already know about from the times you've glanced at the tv when the trailer was on!

So Katie (you can check our her blog here, they're pretty good!) invited me to go and watch this with her. I'm not going to lie, at first, I thought it was really babyish but then I looked at some more trailers online and I fell in love with it. It's such a cute yet emotional film.

The basic storyline is that Dory suddenly thinks that she must have a family somewhere out in the ocean so she sets off to find her parents. Along the way she slowly remembers about her childhood which helps her along the way. She travels with Marlin, Nemo and finds other friends along the way such as Hank. 

Personally, my favourite character is Gerald. His face is so... weird and he's always got a bucket. 

I also think that Disney's next film should be... 

Don't judge me. I want to see a film about how he got hit by a bus and his face got disfigured. He's hilarious and definitely brings the film to life and adds humour. 

Altogether I think this film is a great family film. It's heart - warming and anyone can watch it whether you're 2 or 95.

The colours are very vibrant and the characters all have very bold personalities which made it easier to relate to the characters.

The only criticism I would give it is that a lot of the same stuff happened more than once. Such as how she got stuck in the pipes more than once. Other than that I think the film is fantastic.

If you enjoyed this review and you want me to do more then comment any films you'd like me to watch. Hope you have/had a good day! Bye <3

The Perfect, Feel - Good Spotify Playlists:

So recently (seeing as I've had a lot of spare time) I've been listening to a lot more music via Spotify. I have picked a few of my favourite playlists - that I've been listening to - and I'm here to share them with you! Enjoy.

1. The workout remix - 2016.

I like this album because it includes a lot of summery, upbeat remixes of, some, slow songs. Some of my favourites include Talking Body (KREAM Remix), Hands To Myself (Fareoh remix) and This Girl (Kungs Vs Cookin' On 3 Burners). You might have noticed that the last one isn't a remix! I guess I forgot to add that they also add in some not - remixed songs!

2. Hozier

This one is made by my favourite male singer Hozier. This album is more for one of those rainy, typical English weather days, although, I still listen to it on sunny days! His songs are quite deep which I like for some reason... Some of my favourites from here are Cherry Wine (Live), Sedated and It will come back.

3. Trap Nation

Some of you might already know this name from youtube! I love their youtube channel and recently discovered their Spotify playlist. They do some great hip - hop style songs and some remixes. I personally love Feelin' Good and Stranded.

I have also been listening to some other songs that aren't (that I know of) in a Spotify playlist.

1. Who Knows (feat. Chronixx) [Shy FX Remix]

That was really complicated to type. -_- I heard this on Radio 1 a week ago and thought it was pretty cool so I decided to search it up and guess what? It came up!

2. Travelling - Paper Lions

So this was on an advert (I can't remember which one - sorry!) and I fell in love with it. The one on Spotify is a slower one to the original (which can be found here) but I love it as much!

I hope you enjoyed my blog! Be sure to comment any playlists/songs that you like! If you like any of the songs or playlists I mentioned be sure to tell me by DM me on Instagram and (singster_blows), message me on Snapchat (singster_blows) DM me on Tumblr and Vine (Stella Blows) Google + (Stella Blows).

Have a good day!

Camping at Weymouth/Rosewall

(In this blog I will be quoting things from my diary, when I do I will be putting the quoted text in " so you know! Hope you enjoy!)

So for 6 days (Sat 28th of May to Thurs 2nd June and partly Friday 3rd) my family and I went camping at a campsite called Rosewall in Weymouth. It had stunning sights and we did a lot there so I figured I would make a blog about it!

Day 1: Moving in

So the first picture is of when Coral and I were completely bored but we couldn't be bothered to help so then I got my camera out and took a wobbly selfie. The reason it blurred is because I dropped my camera as I took the picture... oops?

Then on our 2 - 3 - hour journey our car's 'safe mode' thing decided to slow down so we could only go a maximum of 20 mph which was annoying. We went into a car place (forgotten what it's called) but they didn't have anything to help so we carried on being a snail; we had to go even slower because we had a trailer! 

After we had to wait for my nan, mum and dad to put the tent up... it took a little while seeing as it's quite a big tent but they did get through it. At one point they asked me to hold a part of the tent and then I made part of the tent into a semi - good hat! 

Then I took a few selfies and whilst I was bored I went into the tent and started doing random gymnastics in the tent (I had a video but it didn't work) and then went outside to play football with Coral. She's quite good but it gets tiring when you have to run around to get the ball!

"After we went on an adventure to the beach. I wanted to go down a path but it was too steep and I wasn't aloud. Then we found a different path and we got to the beach. The stones were humongous and there was a really pretty waterfall." So yeah you can see the waterfall in some of the pictures - It's really pretty! I did manage to get to the middle of it (I stepped on a stone) but in the process, I fell into the water. My shoes got a little wet but luckily they dried quite quickly! I then took some photography of random things. If you're wondering why there's a picture of a cow it's because my nan was scared of it (we had a dog and she thought the cows would run after her) but they didn't even move! They just ate their grass! 

There's also a really creepy boat that never moved as well...

After we went to a pub called the smuggler's inn. Coral and I got ice - cream (which was quite expensive) and then we went off. Just so you know, Coral hacked my camera and took these 3 pictures.

Day 2: Unexpected swimming in the sea

So we started with a Friday - fry - up (even though it was on a Sunday) which was really nice. I had a bacon sandwich and a plain croissant. "Then we played outside until we decided to go to Halfords to fix our car. We found a beach and went there - the water was soooooo nice!"

 Coral and I decided we would go and swim in it, therefore getting our clothes wet, Everything about that was good except for the fact that I was freezing cold afterwards! Luckily I brought my jumper...

Also, we saw Punch and Judy (the show) there! They were quite funny, a little more inappropriate than you would expect but only mildly. They were one of the best Punch and Judy shows I've ever seen!

Then we came back and my dad got the kite out. It was quite hard to control because it only had one string but I did manage to move it around a little.

Afterwards, Coral and I decided to actually make use of the skateboards we got so we sat on our skateboards and skated down a hill that was there. Shortly after, my dad came and he taught me how to ride it standing up - seeing as he had done it when he was younger - and by the time we left the campsite I had got to the top of the small hill (which is a big thing for someone like me). Coral gave up straight away but it was quite funny, in a way...

Day 3: Walking up a mountain

"Today I woke up later than normal because we were only going climbing up A GIGANTIC MOUNTAIN! It took a little exploring but we managed to find a trail to get up get up to the top." My dad also made it funny! He had got new 'walking shoes' and (as a joke) he kept saying how great they are. Here's an example: I said, "This mountain is so steep!" he replied with, "Not if you have these walking shoes!" Eyeroll. I did manage to get quite good pictures and I found a new filter on my camera where you can have a subject and a blurry background and also a landscape filter. The first one is my favourite but I used them both quite a lot. I also took some pictures of Millie (my nan's dog) and she was really cute on this walk!

Then - I had to put this photo in - we came back and I talk a photo of Coral. I think she was getting into a stupid pose or something but when I looked back at the picture she had a really funny face! I am NEVER deleting this (it's also a good thing to keep for blackmail...).

Day 4: Bad golfing

Today was one of those days where you didn't know what to do. We didn't want to do anything too special (we were saving that for tomorrow) but then we didn't want to do anything boring. We decided to go to Henry VIII's stronghold but then it was small and apparently there was 'no point' so then we went on a hunt for something to do. We went to a little area that had Sea Life but that was too expensive (£80) so then we went to a golfing place next to it. I wasn't very good at the beginning but I think I got better as time went by. I came 3rd place (out of 4 places!),

Afterwards, we got ice - cream. I got a smarties pop - up (like old times) and I asked Coral to take a picture of me but then she took it unexpectedly and I don't look very good! Well done Coral!

We came back and it was raining. Millie really wanted to go outside but my nan didn't want the 'smell of wet dog' in the tent so she had to stay inside. I took a picture of her for blackmail if she went outside (yes you can blackmail a dog! :D). 

After my dad tried to cook a barbeque and because you can't have that type of thing in the tent he had to do it in the rain. He looked funny... I had to take a picture...!

Day 5: Too cold for swimming and shops

So we first turned up to the beach expecting to go swimming! We had our swimming costumes, towels, everything! Although British weather thought differently. We were so cold we couldn't! My nana and mum went off to the shops and we were left at the beach, looking after a dog. Coral seemed to enjoy it and I did a few things (like writing my name) and we also saw a really good sand statue by Sir David Attenborough. He's the same person that created Sand World so it was no surprise that he would make something like this. There was also quite a cool part where you could chuck money down a thing and it would make different machine sounds! It sounds weird but it was cool - I promise. 

Then we went into the shops ("which surprisingly wasn't boring") and I bought a postcard and a snow globe of the beach? I only realised it afterwards!

"Later, we went to the Springhead (a pub) and had really nice food. Apparently, (according to Coral) my mum's onion rings were really nice but I didn't try them!" The pub had a sort of nice, old theme. However, when I stepped into the toilet it was completely different. It was a lot more modern and had Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn on it! Then Coral wanted to take a picture of me on one of the poshest chairs I've ever seen! 

Day 6; Monkey world and last day

"Today (for our last day) we decided to do something special, We woke up later then decided to go to Monkey World! My nan couldn't come (dogs weren't allowed, for obvious reasons) but the monkeys were still awesome!" Some of them were really funny, such as a posing monkey which was posing for everyone taking pictures...

Some of them were just plain grumpy, though!

Also, I went on one of the biggest climbing frames in southern England! Seriously, though, what was anyone else going to expect? It is an ape world! Apes climb things... get it? :D

After we went to a little beach and I went in but it was freezing so I decided I would (to my parents dismay) do parkour on some nearby rocks! It was fun and by the end I was quite fast!

When we got back we played a bit of badminton and as the sun set, we saw a beautiful array of colours in the sky. I had to take a picture! It's beautiful and the clouds looked SO FLUFFY!

After that, we went home... I figured I wouldn't make a whole day of that because I didn't have any pictures (due to my camera running out). I did enjoy our camping and I hope you enjoyed reading this blog! I hope you had a good half term and if you didn't (the next one you get) make it fun! Do things that challenge you and make yourself proud and happy. See you soon!

P.S. Sorry this blog is a little bit later then I thought, it took a little while to put all the pictures in and type everything up! <3
