Photos From My Night


Hello lovelies!

So in today’s post I’m going to be showing you what I got up to Saturday night! I went to see Steps, which are one of the first bands I ever listened to. I’ve done an entire post about how much I love Steps’ music which you can check out here. This was one of the very first posts i wrote! We went to see them at the Liverpool Echo Arena which is an amazing venue which overlooks the Albert Docks. Walking along there at night is the best thing, especially because all the Christmas lights are up which makes it so magical!


The support act for Steps was The Vengaboys, which were the best!! I absolutely love 90s dance music and I was non stop dancing. Steps were absolutely amazing and so sweet! They sang all their old classics and did all the dances. The sets were so cool and so colourful and the whole show was so well done. I’ve loved their music for as long as I can remember and to hear it live was so special for me and they all sounded so amazing.

This was honestly one of my best nights of my life and I definitely want to see them again soon!

I really hope you enjoyed this post. Thank you so much to everyone that takes time out to read my posts, it means so much!

A Short Story – Pt 6


Hello lovelies!

Ahh!! I’m so excited for you to read the final part of my story! Make sure to check out Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 & Part 5 before reading this.


When we were only a short lapse away from the damp surface, I raised a hand and ever so gently executed a little pressure. The glass started to waver. I turned to Adam. Pure astonishment looked back at me.

“Do you think it’s possible?” I whispered. Without even saying anything else he knew immediately what to do. He raised a pallid hand towards the glass and took a deep breath as he applied pressure. His hand passed though the glass. By now, out hands were only part of our bodies that had entered the portal.

“Let’s go through together.” I said with a gentle voice. Adam took one last look at the place that was his home. For painful moment I thought that he wasn’t going to go through with it but he gave me a reassuring smile and grabbed my hand. Out hands linked inside the mirror and we passed through easily. A cooling sensation sweeping over us. As my feet touched the ground, I recognised my surroundings straight away.

I was still linked to Adam’s clammy hand. His fingers were applying too much pressure, it almost felt painful. I got my free hand and lightly lifted off his fingers. His hand left indentations in my hand.

Adam’s eyes opened. “Sorry.” He went red. I smiled.

He looked at our surroundings , and frowned. “Are we in a cleaner’s office?”

“Yeah…I  know it’s strange.” I grinned.

“How did you end up in here?”

I hesitated. “I…was running away. I needed  somewhere to hide.” I knew he was going to ask next.

“What were you running from?” He sounded concerned.

One word would clear this question. “Bullies.”

He went silent. I looked at his expression. His lips parted slightly; his eyes were fixed on the dusty ground. His eyebrows pulled together, he looked almost angry.

“What’s the matter?” I asked.

He spoke very faintly. “Someone was trying to hurt you?”

“Yeah, it happens a lot. It’s been going on for a while now.”

He looked at me, full of sympathy.

“It’s okay. Don’t worry.” I said, reassuring him.

Adam scanned the pokey room, and spoke. “You’ll explain later yeah?”

“Yes of course!” I assured him.

“Okay. But right now I think we should focus on finding your family.” He paused and slowly looked back at the strange mirror we had just come through and placed his hand on the cold glass. “I wonder how this works. I never realised there was another world that existed apart from the one I live in.”

“Back at you.” I smiled 

He smiled back. “So, which way do we go?” He took his hand off the mirror.

I didn’t answer straight away. My first thought was to go to my house, but something caught my eye. Without thinking I walked the opposite way to the door. I carried on walking until I was facing another mirror that was similar to the one Adam and I had just passed through. The frame was bronzed enamel, with flowers joined together all around it. At the top, a sparrow had been sculpted, resting in between two moulded candlesticks. I could hear shuffling feet behind me. 

“Cassie?” Adam approached me.

I turned around. “Can you believe it?” My voice was muted.

His eyes widened at the sight of the mirror. He stepped closer and nearly gasped.

As I looked closer, concentrating on the transparent appearance of the shiny surface, I saw something that made my eyes widen in alarm.

“Is he the caretaker?” Adam asked.

I just nodded, staring at the caretakers gawking expression. 

“Do you think it’s possible…? He cut off. I knew what he was thinking.

…”to go through it?” I finished. He nodded. We stared at it in wonder. Just like before, I raised my hand and applied a bit of pressure to the surface. My hand went straight through the form of the caretaker. My hand felt cold.

Adam did the same without a word. We nodded at each other and pushed ourselves through. Only this time we didn’t end up in a destination. The images around us blurred.

“What’s going on?” I asked Adam desperately. He looked as shocked as me, but was unable to speak. He just stared around at the swirling scenery around us. When will this end? I yelled in my head. Just at that moment, the scene around us changed and took sme form around us. As it clouded together, I realised what it was. I recognised this scene, I was in it. It was the day that I first went through the mirror. The scene started with sneaking past the caretaker, hiding behind the filing cabinet. I remember this scene so well, I almost felt like I was there again.. As the image showed me falling backwards through the mirror, I looked over at Adam. His face was entranced in the image. I was half expecting the scene to end when I fell through the portal. But it continued to when the caretaker returned but all of a sudden he disappeared. From the mirror i’d fell through, a light exited from the surface, the caretaker’s form swirled into the glass and stood still. Everything went quiet. I stared in shock. The scene disappeared and me and Adam were back to where we were. 

I was unable to speak. “I…don’t understand.” I had a sudden thought. “Hey, erm…do you think that, maybe my family are trapped as well?” I heard Adam’s intake of breath.

“Well…I wouldn’t want to upset you, but maybe.” He admitted.

“There’s only one way to know.” I said quietly. Adam paced over and put his hand on the rusty door handle. He turned it with deliberate slowness; a worry line crossed  his smooth forehead.

As I followed him out of the small room, my heart sank. The scene before me was not what I was expecting. It was very dark. My mum and brother was nowhere in sight. I took a step forward to see through the darkness. I gasped. In front of me was a winding maze of mirrors, reflecting off each other, glimmers of light covering every wall. When I looked closely at the mirrors, I nearly choked with shock. In every glass surface of each mirror, there were reflections of people. Their eyes were fixed in different directions; their bodies hung limply, hair swaying above their heads, looking almost…dead. I dared a look at Adam’s expression. He was swallowing hard, his hands shaking at his shades. I walked over to him.

“It’s okay.” I whispered, trying to comfort him.

He just simply looked at me, dazed. Then spoke. “I just thought.” He cleared his throat. “Your mum and brother might be in one of these mirrors, we could find them.”

“Make sure we stick together.” I said. 

He nodded. ” Let’s start looking for them.” He whispered. We made our way through the first row of mirrors, scanning every single one. Their swaying bodies were painful to look at. We turned a few short corners and I started to recognise some of the faces. There were pupils from my English and Maths classes who never gave me any problems. This thought was in my mind when I suddenly came across my worst nightmare. It was Sarah. Her body was swaying ,her face expressionless. Adam noticed me pausing. 

“Do you know her?” he asked gently.

I hesitated. “Well…she was the one who was bullying me at school.” Hatred flickered in his shiny eyes. “It doesn’t matter now. We have more important things to think about.”

“Okay, let’s keep searching.”

It was very immense. We’d wandered around this darkened room for an increasingly long time. The flowing light saturated every mirror surface, which made it harder to think clearly. Just as all my hope and determination and hope nearly ran out, I spotted something familiar to my left. My heart was racing with suspense. Could it be the right one?

“Hey, I think I see them.” I said calmly. My eyes were fixed on one of the antique mirrors just a few feet away.

“Are you sure it’s them?” His face was fixed on the two figures, hovering in the mirror.

“Let’s look” Hope was rising in my voice. Without hesitation, I grabbed Adam’s hand, pulling him behind me. As I got closer and closer I knew it was them, I recognised the way my mother’s hair was floating. At her side, there was a small figure. My brother. He looked focused  on something far away. His little strands of golden hair, swaying gently.

“It’s really them!” I panted.

Adam was silent next to me, struggling to breath.

“Let’s go through.” I said as we approached the glinting surface.

“Okay.” Adam replied. sounding optimistic.

I plummeted through the portal with desperation in my movements, and landed on a carpeted floor. I realised something wasn’t right. Adam’s hand was still bonded to mine but he grasping so hard, my hand started to twinge. I noticed the portal was disappearing behind me. Adam was still on the other side; he hadn’t come through. The portal had nearly gone now; his hand still grasping mine. With all my strength I kept my grip and pulled it towards me. It was no use, it was closing on our twined hands, pushing his away.  I kept straining desperately, not thinking about the remaining seconds I had left.

“Adam!!! Adam!!!” 

This was a grim trailing for sure. His hand left mine.


Well there you go! That was the final part of my short story. I’m so happy I decided to share this with you, it’s crazy looking back on this as I hadn’t read it since I was 16!

The Best Red Nail Polish


Hello lovelies!

So in today’s post i’m going to be showing you THE best red nail polish that i’ve discovered recently. With my nails i go through phases of colours, style, false nails and sometimes i just want them bare with a clear coat. I absolutely love wearing statement colours like red because i feel like they look amazing and go with pretty much any outfit. They also look gorgeous when put with a bold, matte red lip. For ages i’ve tried so many different red polishes and i never found one that i love. In the past there have been great ones that i still like today, like Miss Sporty red polishes i still think are brilliant, but the colour has never been one that i wear again and again.

So my current favourite is the MaXfactor Max Effect polish in “Red Carpet Glam.” This colour is absolutely gorgeous! I don’t really buy much MaXfactor make up but i noticed this shade and i could tell it would look amazing. This shade of red is so different as it’s so bright and has a lovely glossy finish so you don’t even need to apply a top coat. The brush is also the best shape, it’s small and wide and the bristles are all straight so that you get a nice neat finish. There’s nothing worse than when the bristles are all different sizes, it’s a nightmare to try and get right!



I also really like that it’s a mini bottle. I find that with large bottles, the polish is harder to store and dries out a lot faster. Having a small pot is great as you actually end up using it all! The consistency of the polish is also amazing, it’s not really watery so when you paint it on it doesn’t move as much and can be spread across the nail very easily. You also need only one coat of this to do your whole nail and it dries sooo quickly with no bubbles—i love it! What’s also amazing is that this polish doesn’t stain your skin or nails. We’ve all done it where we accidently get it on our fingers and the polish stains your skin. This one doesn’t do that as a lot of red polishes do.

I’m definitely going to try some of the other shades! One thing I would say is that MaXfactor don’t have that many different shades. The colours they have are like one gold, one blue, one red etc. I’d love to see lots of different pinks, greens as the nail varnish is so amazing it would be incredible in more shades.

I really hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried this nail polish and what you think of it.

A Short Story – Pt 5


Hello lovelies! Time for Part 5! Make sure to check out Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 & Part 4 first.


When the final bell rang, Adam and I strolled out of school together. I was quite excited to meet his family, though I didn’t know what to expect.

“Do all your family have your hair colour?” I asked, trying to picture what they all looked like.

“Yeah but my dad’s isn’t as blonde. ” He explained.

He led me up a very quiet street to a small row of pretty detached houses. All of their brickwork completely unique, no two houses were he same.

“This one’s my house.” He said as he guided me to the house right at the end of the row. It was an average sized detached property with discoloured orange brickwork and a pretty stone archway, above he entrance. As we made our way to the front door, I noticed the beautiful patch of grass, each long strand, wavering in the gentle l, summer breeze. The ever growing tulips, Wigan their blushing petals inclining their stems towards the incandescent light, sheering from the glowing sun.

Adam unlocked the door and led me in. I stepped into the warm, inviting hall. The vibrant light from the twinkling chandelier lit the whole room, reflecting off the magnolia walls.

“Do you want to put your stuff here?” Adam smiled. I removed my coat and handed it to him to hang on one of four elegantly placed coat hooks. I then put my bag on the carpeted floor.

“Just through here.” Adam said as he led me past a twisting staircase and into a darling little kitchen, where stood his mum.

“Hello Cassie ” She said with a big smile.

“Hey.” I smiled back.

“Tea will be ready in a few minutes.” She said.

“Cool, we’ll go sit down.” Adam showed me to an oak table. I took my place next to him and inhaled the lovely, warming smell coming from the oven. I didn’t actally know what we were having but I didn’t care. I was so hungry I’d eat anything. Adam’s mum put a pair of oven gloves on and brought out a ceramic tin from the oven. She placed it in the middle of the table nd removed the lid to reveal a home made pie. She cut it into large pieces and put one on each plate. It smelt amazing! It was full of fresh vegetables, steaming roast potatoes covered in crumbling puff pastry. I was so excited. When I finished my plate, I looked up. Adam was still eating and so was his mum. He looked up after he realised I had am empty plate.

“You’re fast at eating Cassie!” He laughed.

“Yeah I had a small breakfast.” I tried to sound spontaneous.

“Would you like seconds?” Adam’s mum asked.

I thought she’d never ask. “Yes please.”

“Help yourself.” She smiled and gestured to the pie. I leaned forward and spooned a rather huge piece onto my plate, digging in.

After we’d all finished, Adam’s mum started collecting the dirty plates “We have chocolate mousse for after.  If you’re not too full Cassie?”

“Ohh I would love some!” I sounded so enthusiastic, it was almost embarrassing.

I looked over at Adam.  He was looking down  to the wooden table, tracing the grain with his finger. His mum came back with three pots of mousse.  I peeled the lid off mine and peeked inside. The Whipped cream on top, the chocolate mousse and the small pieces of dark chocolate on top. I couldn’t wait for this.

“Where the bathroom?” I asked politely.

“Yes love it’s upstairs, turn right.” Adam’s mum said.

“Thank you.” I made for the stairs and found the bathroom easily. It had attractive black and white tiles overlooking the bath. As I looked at it, I noticed piles upon piles of sweet smelling shampoo and conditioner. I was so tempted to have a bath but I sighed and turned the shiny, metal hot tap and started washing my hands. I really loved this bathroom, the decoration is…

“Ouch!!!” I yelped. I realised that I wasn’t paying attention to the water and ended up burning my hands. I quickly got hem under the cold tap trying to stop the pain. As I turned off the tap, something caught my eye. I looked up cautiously into the bathroom mirror.thr steam from the hot tap was behaving most oddly. It merged into a misty cloud and stuck itself to the mirror. As I kept gazing, words started forming on the glass…

Thorough hero or grim trailing?

I urgently grabbed some toilet paper and an eye pencil from the shelf and carefully wrote down the startling message. When I was finished I wiped it off with my sleeve and stuffed he paper in my blazer. I calmed my breathing before I went back downstairs.

Adam’s mum was washing up.

“Erm..I’m goin take my eyes back now but i’ve had he loveliest evening.” I said lightly.

She turned round. “Are you okay getting home?”

“Ohh yes fine thanks.” I replied

“Do you want me to walk you back?” Adam appeared from the living room.

“Oh that’s okay. I’ll see you at school together. Thank you for the amazing dinner.” I waved to his mum.

“No problem love, pop back whenever you want.”

“Thank you. I’d love to.” I turned toward the door. Adam followed. I slipped on my coat, he handed me my bag.

“Cassie?” He looked at me seriously. “Has something happened?”

“No, why?” I swallowed. I so wanted to tell him but that’d lead to loads of questions.

“We when we were eating you were fine but now you look a bit worried.” Why did he have to see everything?

“No I’m fine. Well I did burn my hands on the hot tap, that was a bit of a shock.”

“Ohh are you alright?”

“Yeah I’m fine honestly, don’t worry. I’ll see you tomorrow yeah?” He smiled and opened the door for me. I stepped out into the chilly wind, then paused. “Oh yeah, thanks again for the book.”

He grinned shyly. “I’m glad you liked it.”

“Well I haven’t read much of it but I’m gonna carry on with it.”

“I haven’t read any Jane Austen books. I might try one sometime.” He folded his long arms. ” Bit cold isn’t it?”

“Yeah, luckily I’ve got my coat.” I dug my hands into the deep pockets. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Yeah, get home safe and I’ll see you outside form tomorrow.” We smiled at each other. He stepped back into the house and gently closed the door.

I lay on my stomach, the piece of toilet paper in my shaking hands. Those words were playing around in my mind over and over again. Thorough hero or grim trailing? What does that even mean? It doesn’t make sense? The written words sounded almost menacing to me. I felt queasy. After a few minutes though, I got up and retrieved Sense & Sensibility from my bag.

Chapter 4

“What a pity it is Elinor,” said Marian new, “that Edwards hold have no taste for drawing.”

“No taste for drawing!” replied Elinor, “Why should you think so? He does not draw himself, indeed, but he has great pleasure in seeing the performances of other people; and I assure you he is by no means deficient in natural taste, though he has not had opportunities of improving it. Had he ever been in the way of learning, I think he would have drawn very well. He distrust his own judgement in such matters so much, that he is always unwilling to give his opinion on any picture; but he has an in the propriety and simplicity of taste, which, in general, direct him perfectly right.”

I let the classical story flow over the distressing thoughts in my mind.

I bustled up the stairs and into form. Adam was already seated, looking relaxed. If only he knew what I was going through. The threatening word still sat in y pocket, filing me with confusion.

“Hey Cassie. Adam grinned at me, his blonde hair reflecting the sunlight from the open windows.

“Hello.” I smiled brightly. Giving him no sign that there was anything wrong.

As we walked to maths, Adam was chatting about how much his mum liked me. I nodded and replied in the right places but inside I was dying to tell him everythin.  We took our seats.

“Okay everyone, today we’re starting a new topic…” The teacher’s voice groaned on and on. I wasn’t paying attention; my hand gripped the piece of paper in my pocket, the words still spinning around in my head… Thorough hero or grim trailing? Thorough hero or grim trailing? What does it mean? I substituted the words around in the head. Trailing hero or thorough grim? That didn’t sound right…just then one sentence crossed my mind, it almost sounded like an instruction.

Go through the original mirror.

I realised that it was an anagram of the original sentence. My heart was pounding; I tried to keep my hands from shaking. This could only mean one thing. Something had happened to my mum and brother, something’s wrong.

Without thinking I put my hand up.

“Yes Cassandra?” The teacher said.

“May I go to the toilet please?” My voice was shaking.

“Yes of course Cassie, let me just give you a pass.” I got up from seat and collected the pass. I sat one wary glance at Adam’s troubled eyes and flitted out of the room. He knew something wasn’t right, he knew me well enough. But I couldn’t think about that now, I had to go. I started rushing down the corridor, across the PE hall and out of three back door. I was very careful not to slip on he stone steps.

Fighting against the strong gusts of rain, hammering my worn out body. Making my cheeks number and tender as I repelled against the weather. It had got so cold; the sky was as great as the worn out pavement, with an outburst of lightning, tearing through the sky, causing it to rumble with fury. I knew the current in the trees as here somewhere, but it harder been so long since I’d last been here. I racked my brain for that memory that would save my family. But everything was cloudy. If only I could remember. I could see that it wasn’t going to come back to me immediately, so I decided to have a look round for any clues, anything that would help me. The rain wasn’t making it easier. I drifted through the teeming bushes, pushing the damp ferns out of my way. My hand stubbed on a thorn. Blood was gushing from my pulsing hand. I tore the hem of my school jumper and quickly tied it round my palm tightly. There was nothing else I could do for now. I’d near enough mutilated this tree that I was tearing at. It was immensely difficult to get free; I thrashed through another tree, ripping at the branches.

No mirror. Nothing.

I went for the profound way of thinking and came out of the shrubbery so I could have a full view of the trees. I ambled up and down the length of he field, still looking. I stepped through the trees, stumbling through the damp grass. As I got to the rear fence, I came across something brilliantly bright, a light even. It glimmers gently and stood out. I slowly deliberated towards it, I was so close.

“Cassie!!” Ohh no. I saw Adam running in the distance, getting closer and closer to me.

I was speculating whether to make a run for it but he’d reached me by then.

“I’ve—been—searching—for—you—for ages.” Adam rested on his knees, panting.

“Yeah, well there was no need!” I said harshly.

He looked hurt. “Why did you run off?” He’d composed himself and stood up to his full height. I didn’t know whether to tell him the truth, he might try and follow me but I couldn’t stand to lie anymore.

“I have to go. It’s really important. There’s no time to explain, now please let me just do this one thing?” I pleaded.

“Well…why didn’t you tell me? If i’d just disappeared you’d wonder what was happeneing”

I could see his point. “Look…I understand and I will explain everything, I promise but right now I need to go.”

He lowered himself onto the damp grass. “I can see this thing is important…” He drifted off.

“I’ll be back in no time, you’ll see.”

“Where are you going?”

Oh. This was one question I didn’t want him to ask. “It’s hard to explain.” I admitted.

“Well I need to be able to understand at least, some of this.”

“You won’t believe me.” I said with dismay.

“Well…just try.” He encouraged.

“I really don’t have any time. I’m so worried.”

He got to his feet. “Let me come with you.”

“What? Definitely not!” I was outraged at the thought.

“Please? I want to help you. ” He walked towards me with  serious face of understanding. “What is it that you have to do?”

I hesitated. As I looked at his intensely sparkling, emerald eyes I realised that I needed help.

“I’ll show you. It’s over here.” I led the way, running towards the glint of glass, shimmering with the reflection of the sun.

I recognised it now. It was covered in dead leaves, just as I’d remembered it.

“Slow down!” I could hear Adam puffing and struggling to breathe. I stalled and waited for him to catch up. He stumbled to my side. His cheeks were red and his floppy, unkempt hair was clinging to his damp forehead. “What is it you wanted to show me?” I didn’t answer his question, I just slowly rotated my head to face the mirror in front of us. His frustrated expression melted away as he followed my gaze and was replaced by bewilderment. I walked forwards. I could hear Adam’s soft movements as he followed me. We stopped a few feet away and just looked at it in wonder.

After a few moments of hesitation, Adam spoke in a low voice. “What’s this?”

“I have to go through it. It’s where I originally ame from. My family’s in danger”

He stared at me with confusion. “What?”

Adam wave of silence washed through both of us.  I was unable to speak.

He broke first. “So…you haven’t been honest with me at all.” He said in a cracked voice.

“No! That’s not true! I haven’t lied about anything else.” I felt the tears coming through; I held them back, swallowing.

He wiped his damp forehead and spoke again. “Right…if you only lied about that one thing then…I can forgive that. But I career about you Cassie and after this is over I want you to explain everything. Yeah?”

“Yes. And I promise to tell you everything. You can trust me with that can’t you?”

He nodded. “I trust you but right now I think we should focus on keeping your family safe.”

I threw my arms around him. “Thank you for understanding.” I whispered in his ear. He returned the pressure of his arms. Then I had a sudden thought and pulled back. “Hey, I know that is sounds silly but…” I was thinking how to word it. “Can you go through this mirror? Because, you’re from here so I’m not sure?”

He thought. “Well let’s try it! If I can’t though we need a plan b.”

I nodded. “Should we try?” I urged. He smiled in encouragement. We said nothing else and walked forwards.

A Short Story Pt 4


Hello lovelies! Sorry it’s been a while since i posted the next part of this! Had some other posts that i needed to put up first but we’re back, and i hope you’re excited to hear Part 4! Check out Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3 first so you’re up to date with the story. Let’s go! 


He had an immense amount of text books spread over the small table.  His face was very focused. I got out my English homework and started writing. After a few minutes I sensed that someone was watching me. Hesitantly I peeked up from my work, and sure enough I was right. Adam had his pen in his hand but he was gazing at me with a slight frown on his face. I felt really self consious and started shifting about in my chair.

He almost undertood this and decided to finally speak. “Hey, erm…Cassandra?”

“Yes?” I answered. We were the only ones in the library talking. I kept my voice low.

He didn’t seem to notice. “Sorry to bother you, I was just doing these English questions on ‘Sense & Sensibility’, and I was wondering if you could help me with something.” That was unexpected.

“Yeah sure, I’ll try my best.” I answered.

“Ohh thank you. Well it might be easier if I came over.” He gathered up his textbooks and sat down next to me. When he saw my work, he grinned. “You’re doing your English too?”

“Yeah I can concentrate better when it’s quiet.” I said. “So, what are you stuck on?”

“Ohh yeah we’ll it’s question five. You know about why some people think that the relationship between Cornel Brandon and Mary Anne may be considered inappropriate.” I’d already answered this question.

“Yeah , I’ve done that question. Do you want to look at mine or do you want me to tell you quickly and you can put it in your own words?”

He thought for a minute. “I think it might be easier if you explained it to me then I can just write a quick answer that’s different to yours.” Ohh why did I give him two options? I’m going to have to explain it to him now.

“Okay, so I thought…”

Hey drew his full attention to what I was about to say which made it more difficult.

“…some people who either read the book or watched the film may think that it’s inappropriate because Cornel Brandon is a good couple of years older. Like most people think that you should only be a few years apart from the person that you’re with. I disagree though. I think that it doesn’t really matter.” I wasn’t really intending on adding my own opinion into this but it just came out.

He looked at me curiously. “Well I think I can get together a pretty decent answer.” He smiled. “Thanks a lot.”

“Anytime.” I smiled back.

He glanced at the library clock. “We’d better get to form.” He went back to his table and started assembling his books. This reminded me of when I bumped into him yesterday.

“What’s so funny?” He turned to me.

“Ohh, well I was just thinking of when I bumped into you yesterday.”

“Ohh yeah, I completely forgot that was you! I was in such a rush. My mum always gives me a hard time when I’m not on time for form.” He picked up his bag, shoving in a huge pile of books and forcing it closed. He tucked his chair under the table and waited for me. I quickly put my bag on and walked alongside him to form.

We weren’t late and nearly half the form hadn’t arrived yet.  We took our seats at the empty table. I engrossed myself in the silence for a while, planning when I’d next get to go on the field and look for the mirror again. I wanted to try and do it at night when no one was around but I knew in myself that I couldn’t do it. I had so many things to worry about. Mainly where I was going to live, I couldn’t keep sleeping in the library. Also I hadn’t worn clean clothes for three days now! I couldn’t carry on like this.

“Are you okay?” Adam’s voice brought me back to reality. He gave me a friendly smile.

“Ohh, I’m fine thanks…just…tired.” This was half true; I hadn’t slept well last night.  The cold store room floor had given me a chill.

Adam and I had all our lessons together. The more time I spent with him, the more I became aware of how people treated him. He wasn’t particularly accepted, an outsider almost. Passers by gave me weird looks when we were walking to our lessons or going to the library. Almost as if to say, “What are you doing talking to him?”

Nearly every break and lunch time we went to the library. We would either do homework at the round tables or go on the computers upstairs. The library was usually empty apart from the occasional year eight doing some homework. I find myself completely at ease when I was with Adam.  We would talk about pretty much anything. I feel like he’s the friend I’ve never had and really needed. There were times when I did have to be a little careful about what I said, like this lunch time…

“Do you live close to school?”

I decided to keep this conversation light “Why? Are you planning on stalking me or something?”

He laughed “No course not, I’m just wondering”

I was really panicking now. To make things worse, he stopped looking at he computer and turned his full attention towards me. He did this a lot, and it made me feel uneasy; having his shiny eyes watching me. “I…don’t live too far away.” I said gingerly. He was about to just like when the bell rang.

“We’d better get to form.” I sprang from my plastic chair and collected my bag. OK, i’d had a lucky escape that time but I knew he was going to be asking a lot more questions. Soon enough I’d have to think of some kind of cover story.

That same day, we we were walking to History, he asked me if I wanted to go to the public library after school. This sounded fairly innocent until I realised that I’d been living there for the past few weeks. Also if we stayed there until closing time, Adam would surely offer to walk me home and the truth would have to be told. I could never let that happen.

“Sorry, I’m busy after school. I offered to help…my…mum with the…housework.” He couldn’t argue with that.

“Oh, okay. Some other time then.” He suggested.

“Yeah sure” I replied, giving him a soft smile.

Another issue was clean clothes. For the past couple of weeks I had been washing my school uniform in the public toilets sink. Someone nearly caught me once. I quickly ran into a cubicle and dried everything under the hand dryer. I had also lost a lot of weight since I’d arrived here, and lived off 1p sweets from the little shop in town; Adam’s left over lunch and water from the drinking fountain at school. I had barely any energy.  I couldn’t carry on like this.

One night I was lying in the chilly library storeroom. My hand -me-down blazer draped over me. I was creating a scene in my mind: I was at home, my mum was making a cup of coffee, I was sitting with her on one of the small breakfast stools, my little brother, Jack was watching television, giggling every now and then, and his pudgy arms were waving above his head. The strong sun was streaming through the crisp, white lace, catching his golden curls. I just wanted to hug them and tell them how much I loved them. Would i ever get to do that again? Just then another image took form. It was me, racing down the school corridor Sarah’s gang pounding after me.

My eyes snapped open and I looked up at the gloomy ceiling with disappointment. The last scene made me realise just how glad I was to get away from that. The difference was, that at this school, I had actually made a friend who I had grown quite fond of. But, on the other hand, just thinking of my brother’s round, glowing face made the tears spill over.

I bustled out of the library, stopped off at the public toilts to clean myself up, an made my way to school. This felt ie a routine in the making. Adam was outside our form room, looking through his planner.

“Hiya.” I went to his side.

He gave me a soft smile. “Hey”

Miss Whineman came up the stairs. “Sorry guys.” She unlocked the door. Adam and I took our seats. I was so hungry. My stomach grumbled and everyone around the table noticed. A couple of girls giggled.

As I recovered from the embarrassment, Miss Whineman went to the front of the classroom and brought out a box of cakes. “Now I’ve noticed lately that our form in particular nearly always have the best attendance. I’m very proud of you all so I decided to give you a reward. Now I’ll call each table up and you can come and get a cake.”

As the first group got up, I almost felt like this was a miracle. I’d been living off sweets and now I’d finally get something that I truly loved. I didn’t realise how much I missed cake since I arrived here.

“Adam’s table next.”

I got up eagerly and chose a cupcake wit pink icing and rainbow sprinkles. I was debating whether to eat it all now as I was so hungry, but I realised that this may have to last a long time. I reluctantly placed it in my bag and gazed enviously at my classmates.

Adam’s cake had nearly gone! I wish I could mine as he did. In my way to Science, I was planning In my head how I was going to get through the mirror.

At lunch time in the library, Adam and I found a website with optical illusions. We started looking through pictures, finding the magic in each one.

“We should make up our own optical illusion.” Adam said thoughtfully.

“Yeah, that’d be cool.” I said

“Ohh, try this one.” He said. “Put your hands at eye level with your index fingers facing toward each one.”

“Okay.” I put my fingers at eye level. “What next.”

“Leave a two centimetre gap between them and look into the distance between your fingers. A sausage should appar. ” Adam read.

“I can see it!” I said with delight. “Try it”

“Wow! That’s crazy!” He laughed. “I love these.”

“I just feel sorry for the poor person who has to make the up.” I giggled.

“Yeah, that’s not really a dream job.” Adam grinned. Then his face turned serious which usually meant that he was going to ask a serious question. “

What do you want to do when you’re older?”

I wasn’t sure; I hadn’t had time to think about it. “I’ve been asked that a lot and t’s difficult to answer.”

“I know.” He said with a faint smile.

“What about you?” I asked.

He rested his head on his hand thoughtfully. ” Well I change my mind all the time. One miute I wanna be a scientist and a couple of weeks later I’d change my mind to something like, I font know…a writer. ” He grinned.

“You know, if you can’t think of a career you could always go into making up optical illusions.” I smirked.

We both howled with laughter.

“Can you please be quiet?” We looked round in surprise. It was the librarian.

“Sorry Mrs Larson” Adam said seriously, but when he turned back he was struggling to keep a straight face.

“Hey, can I ask you a personal question?” I said, unsure.

He looked up in surprise.”How personal?”

“Is that your natural hair colour?”

He looked t me surprised. He definitely wasn’t expecting that. “Yeah, course it is” He laughed.

“Oh…” Was all I could say.

“Why, did you think I’d dyed it?” He was still laughing.

“Well…Yeah. I don’t mean in a bad way, it just looks so…”

“Blonde?” He finished for me.

“Yeah, I’ve never seen a shade like it.”

“Yeah I got it from my mum.” He put a hand through the messy fringe.

“You’re lucky, I wish I had such a cool shade”

He looked surprised. ” I like your hair colour, it’s you.”

“I know. I’m not sure I’d suit your colour.” I said thoughtfully.

“Well, try it.” He took a piece from his fringe and placed it near my forehead. Our faces were an inch apart. I could hear his soft breathing. It was strange being so close to him, his soft hair brushed my face shape we looked up at the mirrored ceiling.

“No, I don’t think you do.” He said.

“No.” I agreed, and slowly pulled away. “I’ll try it someday.”

“Don’t ruin you’re hair. You never know, it might turn green.” He laughed.

“Oh my gosh, that’d look crazy!” I grinned.

At the end of the day, I walked out of school with Adam.  His mum was waiting for him outside reception. Her long hair fell past her shoulders. As Adam had said, her hair was he same colour as his. She was sitting in a racing green Ford KA, waving for Adam to come over.

“I’d better go. I’ll see you tomorrow.” He gave me a warm smile.

“See you tomorrow.”

He climbed into the small car. I watched it until it had disappeared out of sight.


I trudged round the field, searching. What the Caretaker’s didn’t know was that I wasn’t searching for my watch, as I had told him.

After a few minutes, the Caretaker’s approached me.

‘Did you find it?” He said gruffly.

“No…but thanks anyway.” I knew that it was a lot further back but I could go there with him watching me.

On my way back to the he library, I went to the public toilets. It wasn’t the best way to wash your hair but this was my only option. I got some soap out of the dispenser and vigorously rubbed it in my damp hair. I gave it a quick rinse and got the hand dryer going. An elderly woman came in and looked at me confused.

“My mate poured water over me.” I explained to her. She looked me up and down and went into a cubicle. My hair was nearly dry now.  I quickly combed through it and headed to the library. Thankfully it was still open.

I stood outside; staring into what was effectively my new home. I wondered ow long I would be able to stay here. Surely they would find out sooner or later. I walked slowly through the automatic doors and started to circle he countless bookshelves. I turned a corner and what I saw made me stop in my tracks.

There, sitting at one of the reading tables was Adam and his mum. I tried to sneak away but he saw me instantly.

“Cassie! Hey! What are you doing here?” He rose from his chair and walked toward me.

“I erm…was just gonna have are look are round, you know.” I tried to sound casual.

He looked as if he didn’t believe me. “Cool, well I’m just here with my mum, she likes cook books. Oh and I got you something I think you might like. I was going to give it to you tomorrow, but since you’re here.” He reached into his bag and brought out a thick, cream book. He handed it to me. It was Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen. One of my favourite novels. I looked up at him. This is the nicest thing anyone’s ever done for me.

“How did you know?” I asked quietly.

He looked confsed. “What?”

“It’s like, my favourite book.”

He smiled. “Well, I just remembered how much you knew about the characters when you were helping me with that question.” I wanted to give him a friendly hug but I knew he’d get embarrassed.

“Did you get it from here? When do I have to return it?”

“You don’t. I bought it for you.” He was blushing ever so slightly.

“Thank you” I smiled at him. His mum broke the silence.

“Adam, who’s this?” She looked at me wit kind, powder blue eyes.

“Mum this is my friend Cassie. “

“Well, nice to meet you Cassie. Adam’s mentioned you quite a lot.”

“Mum!” Adam said in a lowered voice.

” I hope you can come over for tea sometime.” She said.

She was lovely. It made me realise how much i missed my own mum.

“That’d be great! If it’s not too trouble” I replied.

“No of course! That’d be nice wouldn’t it Adam?” She patted his shoulder.

“Yeah I’d like that” He said embarrassed.

“Well we’d better go. I need to start tea.” Adam’s mum said.

“Alright then.” Adam replied. His mum headed toward the door.

“Enjoy it” He said, tapping the new book I  my arms.

“Thanks, I’ll see you later.” I replied.

He swiftly exited the library. I looked down at the front cover of the book in my hands and held it to my chest. I glanced up at the huge, chiming clock, hung on the library wall. It was twice minutes until closing time. I hurried to the store cupboard and shut the door. As the lights went out, I felt a sense of relief.  My charming little cupcake was waiting for me; Sense & Sensibility lay on on my lap. As I opened to the first chapter, the words flowed through my mind like a musician laying a soft symphony.

‘Chapter 1

The family of Dashwood how long been settled in Sussex. Their estate was large, and their residence was at Normandy Park, in the centre of their property, where, for many generations, they lived in so respectable manner as to engage the general good opinion of their surrounding acquaintance. The late owner of this estate was a single man, who lived to a very advanced age, and who, for many years of his life, had a constant companion and housekeeper in his sister. Buy her death…’

I woke the next morning, the book lay open on my chest, my protective hands wrapped round the front and back cover.  My daily routine began again. And when I met Adam outside our form classroom, he came out with something that strangely, I was expecting.

“…so my mum said that you can come round for tea of you like.  That’s if you’d like to come, I don’t wanna force you, though mum will be disappointed if I come home without you.”

“No I’d love to come.” I replied.

That was the truth.

“Great! We’ll go straight after school.”

Jumper Love


Hello lovelies!

So for today’s post I’m going to show you 3 new jumper additions! As it’s getting colder I’ve been on the look out for some great jumpers and i feel like i’ve found three that are gorgeous! I absolutely love bright colours and I was so excited when I saw these.


This one is from Primark and it’s half light cream and half orange. I’m obsessed with this shade of orange, it’s so bright and autumny. You may recognise this from my recent Outfit of the day post.



This is the softest material and these type of jumpers are eveywhere in every colour. I have it in this mustard yellow shade which I love to wear tucked into blue mom jeans with a chunky belt.



This is the same jumper as the orange but this one is half light grey and half red. It’s honestly so snuggly and keeps you so toasty! I wore this the weekend just gone and it looks the cutest with a black faux fur coat!


I really hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments if you have any of these jumpers!

Blogger Recognition Award


Hello lovelies!

Oh my goshhh i’m so so excited because this is another award post!

I was nominated by Jenny – Jen’s Life and style for the Blogger Recognition Award so thank you so much Jenny and you can check out her post here



So what exactly is the Blogger Recognition Award? It’s an award given by bloggers to fellow bloggers to reward their hard work. Let me tell you, it feels amazing to earn the recognition of the blogging community.

Once nominated, you can either accept or ignore the award. Upon accepting this award, there are few rules you need to follow

  • Write a blog post to show your award.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers to nominate.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created


How My Blog Started

Writing a blog came about from my 1st trip to Brighton. If you’ve read my posts you’ll know how special Brighton is to me and is the place i want to eventually live. It is so creative. Everyone is just themselves and don’t care what people think. It showed me that i can do something different and express myself online. I’d always documented my life on Instagram like my outfits, where i was, a product i was loving and i thought, i can turn this into something more. I write about what i love like music, beauty, fashion, lifestyle and just anything else i want. I’ve even started a series where i gradually upload a short story i wrote years ago! I started my blog towards the end of July this year and it’s already grown so much!


My Advice For New Bloggers

Be consistent – I’ve only been doing my blog for a few months but this is something that really helps. You have to consistently post in order to gain a steady following. I actually uploaded daily to start with which i know sounds scary but i found that it really made a difference. Also regularly update your Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc talking about your blog.

Enjoy it – This is so so important. When you start your blog don’t just think about how many views/followers you’re getting. Just enjoy writing and posting and when you start to get views/likes/comments/followers (which will happen!) that’ll be a lovely surprise! I remember my first post which was about my first Brighton trip, i spent days writing and putting my heart into it and i didn’t event think about views or anything, i just loved writing it!


Here are 15 blogs I would like to nominate for the Bloggers Recognition Award:



Life With Kirsty

Alexa Ceza

Julie Sofie

Rachael Stray

Hollie George



Chloe Luye

Perplexing Purple

The Somnambulist


Luci Cee

Beautifully Organised


Make sure to check all these blogs out! They’re all so lovely!

My Favourite Childhood TV Shows


Hello lovelies!

So today’s post is one I’ve had down on my ideas list for ages but i’ve only just got round to it! Honestly, when I started blogging I had no idea how much I would enjoy it but I’m absolutely lovin’ it. So this post is going to be showing you my favourite TV shows that I watched from childhood to when I was a young teenager. I think TV shows when I was growing up were the best! Some of them were about real life problems and they really helped you to learn. Other ones were just funny and entertaining which I loved.

Today I feel like there aren’t many shows like these and I know that technology has developed a lot, and obviously we have YouTube, Netflix etc now so I feel like more people would watch these (including me) instead. I’ve put my favourites below and if you used to watch any of these, please leave me a comment letting me know! I’d love to see how many of you remember them.

The Basil Brush Show


This show was the best! I know that Basil Brush goes way back and in this he lives with a family: Uncle Steven, Molly and Dave and it’s so funny! I love the humour even today.

The Story of Tracy Beaker


Oh my gosh I think this show was the one I watched the most. It’s based on the amazing book by Jacqueline Wilson and it really is a great show about the realistic life within a care home and their struggles.

Mona The Vampire


Such a fun show with really cool story lines. Go to YouTube and listen to the theme song! It’s so catchy!

Chuckle Vision


Awww aren’t the Chuckle Brothers such legends?! I love this because they’re put into the most random jobs and have to figure out what to do, being so sweet and hilarious along the way.



This show I watched when I was older. It was set in a studio with presenters Barney Harwood and Nev! Please tell me you remember Nev? They had guests, games and music it was so good.

The Queens Nose


This is an oldie! It was a show about a magic coin where you rub it and get 10 wishes and I remember watching this so long ago!

Demon Headmaster


This one was pretty creepy. It’s a story set in a school with a Headmaster that can hypnotise you when he takes his glasses off.

Ghost Hunter

Aww so cute! I loved this so much. It was about a character called Olli who makes friends with a “Shoe Shine Boy” ghost.



I’ve loved art my whole life and I watched this constantly! It taught you art tips and had funny sketches and also at the end of every show there was a big art piece that was amazing.

Fairly Odd Parents


Such a fun cartoon and I love the animation style.

Cramp Twins


This cartoon followed two Twins who don’t get on and are always fighting.

Wild Thornberries


I’m sure some of you have seen this? It was about an Explorer family where the main character Eliza can talk to animals.



Another fave! This was a story about babies that go on adventures and talk without their parents knowing.



Okay this is the one that i watched when I was very young. I was obsessed with La La!



This was a show where different schools compete on obstacle courses to win a trophy.

Get Your Own Back


This show had kids bring their embarrassing parents to complete challenges. In the end one of them would end up in gunge!



“Everyday when you’re walking down the street…” Aww I love Arthur! This was another show that was about real situations between friendships and family.

The Simpsons


Alright admittedly I still watch The Simpsons today! It’s honestly one of the best shows ever and is hilarious but does have a lot of heart.

Big Kids


Ohh myy this show was everything! It was about a family who’s parents got hypnotised and act like kids whenever anyone says “Ming” The actors playing the parents acted like kids so well!

I really hope you enjoyed this post and it was a bit nostalgic for anyone who remembers watching these! I think that what you watch when you’re younger really shapes you as a person and I’m grateful to these shows!

Thank you so much to everyone that tales time out to read my posts, it means so much. Hit the little follow button if you’d like to see more from me and I’ll see you in my next one.
