My Last 4 Weeks!

It has just occurred to me that starting tomorrow (13th of April) I only have 4 weeks until summer!!! Yep just four week left of fourth year and then I off to Italy for a week with my school and then my summer holidays officially begin. This is both a great thing and a terrifying one. If you’re not from Ireland than this might be hard to explain, but once we enter Secondary school or High school we have six years until we graduate. On our 3rd and 6th year we have state exams but there is an optional year just after your first state exam called Transition Year. This year is more about personal development then getting the curriculum done. Its more project based and there are loads of outings and guest speakers that come and talk to you. You get to do work experience and enter competitions and you have a bit more tie on your hands to do the things you enjoy because you don’t have homework every night. I personally have loved fourth year and got so much out of the year and I really don’t want to go back to a normal school environment.

I have made three lists below one for the good things about fourth year, one about the good things of only having four weeks left and one about the bad things of only having two weeks left. My personal pros and cons to Fourth year and school in general. So here I go.

Good Things About 4th Year

  • Meet new people – we are put into different classes so you get to mix with more people from your year group and get to know them a little better.
  • School trip – Unfortunately not everyone always gets to go on the school trip but fortunately myself and literally all of my friends got chosen to go to Italy and I’m so excited.
  • Guest speaker- we have had some amazing guest speakers over this year some funny and others more serious but it’s always great having people tell you about their experience.
  • Outings – being brought all over the country for walks, talks even farms! It’s great to get out of the school and just go somewhere new for a change.
  • Competitions – there are a load of competitions you can enter from fashion, science and law there are loads of things to get involved in.
  • The Play- most schools put on a fourth year play or musical and it was just so much fun. I had a pretty minor role but did have a couple of solo singing parts and it was just so much fun
  • More time – without fourth year I wouldn’t have had the time to start my blog, to learn the ukulele to kind of figure out what I want to do in college, to get a part time job! (Which I got from my work experience) none of that would have happened if I didn’t have that little bit of extra time to just get things done.
  • Try new subjects – this was both good and bad because I personally hate accounting and business subjects and you have to do it as part of a module but then you also have subjects like enterprise where we have literally just made card and arranged flowers and in PE we have had dance lessons, first aid training and self-defence training all of which we get certificates in.
  • Fun – I don’t think I have laughed so hard in ages just having that extra time to do things with friends and other people in your year you end up just having so much fun.

Good things about only having 4 weeks left

  • Only having a limited number of certain classes e.g. I only have 16 more Irish classes and only 8 more accounting classes!
  • There are usually loads of last minute outings and guest speakers over the last few weeks.
  • In four weeks I’m off to Italy!!!
  • It’s the last time I will have to do certain subjects and have certain teachers. (some I will miss but others I’m okay not seeing again)
  • At the end of 4 weeks I have 3 months of summer holidays!

Bad things about only having 4 weeks left

  • It’s my last chance to do certain subject with certain teachers
  • After the summer I have to return to the normal school environment
  • 5th year is the hardest year in secondary school
  • Between school, homework, part time job, friends and family I don’t know will I be able to keep my blog going.
  • I won’t have as much free time.
  • I won’t have as much time to do the things I love to do

All and all I am both nervous and excited about finishing fourth year. I would however encourage everyone who can do fourth year to do it. Now unfortunately all transition year programs aren’t the same and some are better than others, so if you are considering doing TY then maybe try to talk to fourth or fifth year student who have already done it and see what they thought. And if there is one thing I learned about fourth year it that don’t expect things to happen, join things, enter things, and put your name down for everything otherwise you won’t get out of it what you could.

March Favourites

March was a great month filled with lots of amazing things and people. So today I will be sharing with you some of my favourite things of this month and telling you a little about them.

Clothes – So first off my new yoga pants! I got these around the start of the month and I’m in love, they are so comfortable and look really nice on. I’ve started running so these really got me enthusiastic about starting. I always feel more enthusiastic about working out and getting fit after buying some new workout clothes.

Flowers – Now that spring is upon us everything feels almost alive again. The forest seems greener, there is this consent smell of freshly cut grass in the air and most of all there are flowers EVERYWHERE! I love flowers and in school we have been doing flower arranging (yep flower arranging! Thank God for 4th year) so I get to enjoy them even more. For me nothing beats having fresh flowers in our home I just love the look of them and how they can look as simplistic or complicated as you’d like.image3 (2)

Movie- This month was the release of the second film in the Divergent series Insurgent. I have read all the books yet I couldn’t remember anything that happened in that book (I did read it well over a year ago so…) It was an incredible movie and the graphics were amazing! And how could you not love Shailene Woodley and Theo James. I loved the movie but I’m pretty sure that ending didn’t happen or it did and I just cannot remember. I am rereading that book again so I will hopefully be reminded soon of the truth.

TV – This month has been filled with dramatic tv moment especially for any of you who watch Pretty Little Liars! I’ve been watching this show for 5 years now and waiting for the big A reveal and we finally got it! But then there’s a new question….. Who the hell is Charles!!! I honestly don’t think we will ever know, but I really enjoyed that episode and I thought I might even have been the best yet. I have also started watching Once Upon A Time and I’m just in love with it, I’m only on the first season but I’m really enjoying it so far. It is one of those shows you have to wait a while for it go get good but when it gets good IT GETS GOOD!

Friends- This month I’m particular was spent laughing and having fun with a bunch or my friends. Because of all the breaks and stuff we’ve had loads of time to just hangout in a place that isn’t school and just have that long overdue chat which is great every once and a while, also laughing to the point you almost wet yourself is fun to. I’ve also been able to see my friend that moved to Limerick which is great because I hardly see her anymore. All and all lots of lovely memories with lovely people.

Spring weather – I love the weather we’ve been having lately. Warm and sunny one minute, wind and rain the next minute. It still means I can wear my beloved sweaters when it’s slightly colder and I can whip out the beloved Ray Bans in the sun. I can take some really cool and interesting photos using all the different filtered light.

image2

This is a photo I took whilst running in the woods. The way the light reflected created this incredible effect onto the picture I love this photo so much (and there is no filters/effects)

Smoothie- I have been having a smoothie most mornings this month and they are just do delicious and easy. They are the perfect morning pick me up!

image1 (2)

Concert – This month started off amazing with me going to see Hudson Taylor (I have an entire blog post about that if you’d like to read more about it) and I just found out I might be going to see the Coronas!!! So I’m super excited about that!!!

How to get through a Sick Day

Obviously sick day are the worst possible days but there are a few thing I do that help me make them better and make me feel that I wasn’t just sitting around all day doing absolutely nothing. From food items to perfect movies, pamper sessions to great movies this post will have it all. So I hope you enjoy and maybe this may help a few of you with nice ideas to do on the days you can’t really do anything. And as I’m writing this I really am sick so this is literally what I’m doing.

Foods I like to eat when I’m sick

Soup- nothing beats a hot bowl of homemade soup and a bread roll (the picture below is actually homemade soup and bread I made myself at this retreat thing a few months back. It was delicious!)

image1 (2)

Natural Jellies – I’m not actually sure if that’s the actual name of the sweets I’m on about but whenever I’m sick my parent always come home with a bag of them for me. I don’t know why or how but they do make me feel better!

Fruit – I try and eat as much fruit as I can just because they contain so many vitamins and healthy bacteria that help fight of colds and flus and I love smoothie (recipe below)

Drinks I love when I’m sick

Smoothies- I love smoothies any way but when you are feeling awful a smoothie is perfect. It can contain so many helpful fruits and vegetables that will help you fight off colds and flus and they taste delicious here is a simple recipe for those of you who are just venturing into the smoothie world and for those of you with a little extra experience.

Strawberries
raspberries
blueberries
banana
Greek Yoghurt
Orange juice
image2

And if you want you can add a little bit of honey to sweeten. I tend not to measure out my ingredients so just add the amount you’d like and make sure you add enough liquid (orange juice) to loosen it there are similar more accurate recipes on Pinterest!

Green Tea- I also love drinking green tea (everyday of the week) but especially when you are sick it tastes even better. To be honest I think any hot drink will do it.

Pamper session

This is your perfect opportunity to really go all out and treat yourself! I love lighting a few candles and taking a hot shower (I don’t have a bathL) and using all those product you only like to use on a special occasion. Then grad the biggest cosiest dressing rob you have and get all cosy, and face mask it up! I love using a Deep cleaning face mask just to remove everything and make you feel almost normal again. I also take this opportunity to do a proper manicure and pedicure. I love going all out it makes me feel so much better.
image3 (2)

Things I love to do

When I’m sick I usually just camp out in front of the tv and laptop and catch up on all those shows everyone else finds time to watch. I’ve started watching Once Upon A Time and I’m in love! I’m only on season two so now is the perfect time for me to catch up! I also enjoy watching old Disney classics todays choice Pocahontas! Or tacky, chessey chick flicks they always boost my mood.

I do also use this time to catch up on school projects. I know they are the last thing you want to do when you’re sick but after you finish you do feel like you were productive that day. Then you can also tell your parents you weren’t sitting in front of the tv all day.

SLEEP – for me nothing beats a cold more than a good nap!

So that is a few things that help me get through a sick day! I hope you liked it be sure to check out my social sites (below) and I’d love to know what you guys like to do on the days you’re sick so leave a comment and be sure to subscribe to know when I post next.

Photography Friday #1

Photography Friday is a new segment that will be occurring on this blog. It’s pretty much me just putting up pictures I’ve taken and telling you a little about them, ALL PHOTOS HAVE BEEN TAKEN BY ME! I am very proud that I have taken these and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! I will not be posting a Photography Friday every Friday just maybe once a month or so. I hope you like them I will also be putting them up on my Instagram (they will be better quality on there because of their size, so go check it out (link at the bottom)

image1 (2)

‘Up In The Air’

this photo was taken when I was traveling to Italy flying over the Alps you could see mountains for miles it was incredible.

image2

‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’
When I was in Italy I was able to visit the beautiful city of Venice and I instantly fell in love! From its calm and relaxed atmosphere to it’s breath taking architecture and I’m extremely lucky to be visiting there again in late may! But it just kills me  that the water levels keep rising and that in the future this beautiful city will  probably be covered in water.

image3 (2)

‘After the Storm’
This picture again was taken in Italy just after this huge storm and if there is one thing I love most in the world is a STORM! So I was going crazy seeing all the lightening, rain and even a small twister out at sea. Afterwards the sky just opened up and looked incredible I find it amazing how thing can go from hectic to calm in the space of seconds. Tis is probably one of my favourite pictures I’ve ever taken because of the colours and memory that comes with it.

image7

‘Sunday Sunset’
Most Sundays my family and I go for a walk either in the woods or at the beach and on this particular Sunday in November there was this beautiful sunset! It was freezing  cold but I remember not wanting to leave until the sun had set because I didn’t want to miss the perfect shot.

image8

‘Blackbird’
I was taking a walk in the woods and on my way back the sun was just setting and there were these two birds that just kept flying across the sun creating beautiful silhouette.

image10

‘For Those Below’
I was walking in the woods and looked up to see just a really cool picture of trees against a grey sky. I love waking in the woods and there is always something new to take a picture of.

image11

‘Forest Floor’
Yet another picture of a sunset and the woods. I don’t actually remember taking this photo but I like it and I like how the light just comes out from behind the trees.

And that’s it! My first Photography Friday’ I hope you guys liked it let me know in the comments which photo was your favourite and send me some of your favourite photos on Instagram or twitter. Thank you for reading!

A Little About Me

If you don’t know my name already then, Hello my name is Lex. I am 16 years old and this is my blog. I guess this is just a little outline of my life so far, so you can get a better understanding me.

First my real name is not Lex, it is similar but Lex is just a nickname. My mother is American and my Father is Irish. I was born in America and lived there until the age of 7 when my parents decided to pack up and move to a small town in Ireland where my father is from, and I’ve lived here ever since. Most people think it would be better to be still living in America, but I like Ireland and it means I’ve had the amazing opportunity to travel a bit of Europe. So I’m currently in my 4th year of secondary school. And for those of you who are not Irish I’m just in my fourth year of high school. Fourth year in Ireland isn’t a normal year in school. It’s a year that gives students a chance to try new subjects and get an opportunity to do a number of different things such as work experience and project work. It is not and exam year and is very relaxed in the way you’re not learning for a certain important exam. You are just learning for the sake of learning something interesting, which I in particular love.

As for my interests I have many. I love music and I play guitar, ukulele and am teaching myself the mandolin. I’ll pretty much listen to anything if I have to but when I get the chance to choose the music it is usually a huge mix of alternative, indie, folk, singer songwriter and acoustic and if I’m in that kind of mood maybe a little pop might be in the mix.

I love photography and I’m always the one who has to stop in the middle of the road just to get a picture because the lighting if perfect, or the way the sky looks is just right. In other words I piss some people off but all to capture the perfect moment so it’s all okay.

I love fashion and make up. I do love shopping and building my wardrobe with a few key pieces and a bunch of nice accessories and basics. I love creating outfits that show of both my personality and creativity and I feel the same when it comes to makeup a few basics and then pops of colour and liner to add a personal touch.

Art. Since as young as I can remember I’ve been holding a paint brush in my hand. I’m not any Picasso or Lichtenstein but I do love drawing and doodling in sketch books. And I love going to galleries and see the work that people have dedicate their lives to and put so much of them self in. I love how art is so personal and can mean so much too so many people (And wow I just sounded too pretentious but you get what I was trying to say)

Traveling. I haven’t done a huge amount of traveling. Yet. But I intend on doing a lot over the next few years. I’ve caught the traveling bug and there is no going back now. I already have plans of going to Italy (Venice, Verona and Lake Garde) in late May which I am very excited for. And hopefully there might be another trip at some point over the rest this year.

And I think that’s it, well that I can think of at this moment! Thank you for reading. Be sure to check out my social media sites to be informed on new blog posts and anything else I’m up to. And if you want to be updated on new blog posts be sure to follow. Oh and I’d love to hear a little about you guys as well so leave a comment with a little fact or something interesting about yourself! Hope you enjoyed

Junk Kouture 2015

Junk Koture is a nationwide completion in Ireland where students in secondary school have a chance to make a dress/outfit using 100% recyclable material. Junk couture is not just an opportunity to make a pretty dress it also help raise awareness about the huge problem we have with JUNK! This competition is a great way to raise awareness using a fun and creative outlet. I have loved this completion for years now and this was my official year to enter it. We are only allowed to compete when we are in our 4th year in my Secondary school so two of my friends and I created a dress using recyclable material, and entered into the competition along with 5 other girls/teams from my school! Over 900 people entered in our district (south) and unfortunately we didn’t get through but two girls from my year did! Which meant we were able to go to UL (University of Limerick) and watch the Southern Semi-Finalist Junk Kouture Competition 2015. And so sum it up in one word it was, INCREDIBLE!

Dresses made from Rubber Gloves to Human Hair, from Bullet Cartridges to Mc Donalds happy meal boxes, from Soccer Balls to Coffee Cups and so much more! The amount of unique and outrageous materials used and clever and sophisticated designs mean that this year’s completion was not only amazing but was extremely difficult especially on the four judges who had to choose the top 18 dresses out of 82 unique and outstanding designs!

So here are some of my favourite dresses and the winners of the 2015 semi-finalists with a little information and stuff! Hope you enjoy.

Junk Kouture 2015

image1 (2)

‘Genesis Reborn’ made of paper and feathers. gave a beautiful interpretation of a bird with its bird like wings and feathers and the performance was incredible.

image2

‘An Coileach Dorcha’ this dress was made out of different plastics, feathers and bin bags and has beautiful greens, turquoises and purples that reflected off the light beautifully, and the performance was equally stunning.

image4 (1)

I Think this dress was called ‘Lady Lolita’ but the dress was simple and elegant and the performance was just stunning to watch.

image5

‘Touch of Glass’ this dress was beautiful and it had over 6000 pieces of glass on it the performance was good and the dress was just breath taking!

image6

‘Power in Pink’ this suit was not only amazing to look at but it also came with a statement with music such as Beyoncé’s ‘Run The World’ and with Emma Watsons UN speech about women and gender equality this suit was all about empowering women and equal right. And the dancing an performance was incredible as well.

image7

‘Independence’ this dress was all so a statement dress leaning towards the right to freedom of speech and the freedom to write. With music that included Martin Luther Kings ‘I have a dream’ speech and the giant pen the girl was carrying this dress was great to promote the right to freedom of speech!

image8

‘The Nutcracker’ Another very interesting dress t dress was made out of Pistachio nuts and I saw this dress up close and the amount of detail that is in it is outstanding and it was a beautiful performance.

image10

I think this dress was called ‘Couture Parfait’ and was entirely made out rubber gloves and feathers it looked amazing down the run way but unfortunately the performance was only ok but it was a beautiful dress.

image11

‘Titanium’ this dress was made out of Coca Cola cans and tin foil the light reflected off the tin beautifully and the performance war really good!

image12

‘Blue Lagoon’ this dress was made out of hundreds of water bottles! to be honest I love the idea more than I love the dress.

image15

‘Forrest Fire’ this was one of my favourite dresses of the night it just looked beautiful down the run way the performance was incredible to watch with her bow and arrow in hand and the perfect music ❤

image16

‘ A Breath of  Fresh Hair’ yep this is what your thinking this dress it made of Human Hair!!! Don’t ask me how they got it or how they made it! Personally I don’t want to know.

image17

‘Populishious’ Yep another slightly weird yet wonderful one this dress is made of Popcorn and popcorn crenels. Her performance was really good ant was just a really good idea!

image19

‘Plume De Paon’ This dress was made out of Peacock feathers and it was just amazing from the performance to the dress its self! I loved it

.image20

I cant remember the name of this dress but I love it! with its Egyptian Godess feel and cool use of material I just found myself loving this dress!

image26

So here are the final 18 dress that were chosen to go to the finals all the dresses were amazing and the ones above are only a fraction of the many I thought should have gone through! Unfortunately the girls from my school didn’t get through but there as=re still two wild card places so fingers crossed I hope you enjoyed this post. I am sorry for the poor quality in the pictures the lighting wasn’t great and the voom on my camera sucks! Feel free to leave a comment about which dress was your favourite and go check out my social media sites for more info on future post or you can just follow I hoped you enjoyed this post and don’t forget

First month of Blogging!

To be honest I don’t think I can put into words just how I feel about the past month and what blogging has done to my life. One word I could use and probably have used for every moment I have been blogging is confusing! I don’t really know or understand why so many people have looked at my blog, or why they are following me on social media, or why they take time out of their day just to write me a nice comment or like a tweet. It astonishes me but at the same time makes me so happy and grateful. I always loved writing but it hasn’t always been easy for me to get what I’m thinking out of my head and on a black piece of paper. It has really boosted my confidence and I have you to thank for that.

Your support has been amazing! I’ll let you in on a little secret, not one person I know knows about my blog! Not one family member, not one friend not even my dog knows about it. It is my space and my space alone everything I need/want to write is being written and I couldn’t ask for anything more. And because of your support on social media and on the blog it has really helped and encouraged me to continue it. I must say there have been hectic days where I just think oh who will care if I don’t post anything today or no one will even notice and maybe you won’t! But there are some of you out there who do care or enjoy reading what I have to say and for that I thank you!

And to all the amazing people I’ve spoken to and become friendly to. You have been amazing in giving me tips and ideas and have really encouraged me to keep going so thank you!

This really isn’t a post about my thoughts and opinions on blogging it’s more of a thank you, to all of you who have really made me believe that I could do this. (I say whilst trying not to sound like a typical over emotional teenage girl) I mean this blog has been read in 6 continents in over 30 countries which is incredible!!! And my social media sites have twice as many people than my private account!

This is incredible and for the last time (on this post anyway) I want to Thank everyone! For just being lovely people. Hopefully I have said everything I’ve wanted to say in this post and don’t worry my next post will be really interesting! (I have BIG plans for the next blog) so be sure to Follow or go follow me on Twitter @Waitingflowers or my Instagram @waitingwallflowers to be updated on future post and general stuff.

Hope you enjoyed this little post

Love Lex.

(PS you can call me Lex now I feel it suits my personality more than Lexi)

Liebster Award!

The word ‘Liebster’ is of German origin; meaning dearest, sweetest, nicest, kindest, etc. The purpose of this tag it to help promote and welcome new bloggers to the community.

# Give credit and appreciation to the blogger who nominated you # Answer the 11 questions set by your nominator # Nominate a maximum of 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers # Create 11 questions for your nominees # Notify your nominees via their blogs/social media accounts

Thank you oh so much to the lovely Zoe (Zoe’s Musings) for the nomination! Just like her this is also my first nomination/award I’ve received for this blog and I want to thank her for even considering me! Here are my answers to her questions I hope you enjoy!

Q1) What’s one beauty item you cannot live without?

I find this really hard to answer but I would have to say my………… Bare minerals powder foundation. It is just amazing it cover everything whilst not feeling like your caked in makeup. It also allows my skin to breath and doesn’t cause breakouts.

Q2) Favourite Disney film?

I would have to say either The Lion King, Pocahontas or Mulan or wait there is also Beauty and the Beast and The Princess and the Frog! Oh god it’s just easier to say I love them all. Yep I love every Disney movie! (Oh god I’m such a typical girl right now)

Q3) Your favourite feature/body part of yourself?

I really like my eyes! I have really dark brown eyes which is weird because my father has blue eyes and my mother also has brown eye but they are much lighter than mine! It’s kind of weird but I still really like them. But I do also like my lips, bar the fact that they can get really dry in cold weather!

Q4) Favourite Disney Prince/Princess

My favourite prince would be Aladdin and or Eric and for princesses I always loved Belle, Pocahontas and Rapunzel.

Q5) Your Favourite Song?

Asking me a question like that is like asking a mother which child she prefers! IT AINT HAPPENING!

Q6) Dream Holiday destination?

I want to travel the world one day so I would like to go to so many different places! Scandinavia, Thailand, India, New Zealand, Peru, Chile, Morocco……… the list goes on and on and on.

Q7) Favourite Makeup brand?

High end I would have to say either Urban Decay or Bare Minerals and for High street I would say either Rimmel or Sleek!

Q8) Your Favourite dessert?

Dark Chill Chocolate……. Ummmmmm!

Q9) Favourite Designer

I’m not really sure to be honest I tend to just love clothes more than brands, if that make any sense. If I like something I don’t really acknowledge if it’s from a certain brand or shop I just like it. I haven’t come across a brand that I have loved all of their designs but when that day comes you’ll be sure to know about it.

Q10) Celebrity Crush

Andrew Garfield, Douglas Booth, Eddie Redmayne and Paul Wesley Love them all. There are more but if I list them all we will be here for a while. And to be honest I’m in love with most of them because of the part they have played in a movie/TV show. If only that were really them!

Q11) What accomplishment are you most proud of?

I also found this question extremely hard! In fairness to myself I have accomplished quite a few things in my life. Some smaller than others and some most people wouldn’t really acknowledge. I have help raise huge amounts of money for different charities, I’ve preformed in amazing venues (school choir), I’ve just gotten my first real job and at the moment I’m happy! I have nothing that really stands out because I see all my accomplishments as being equal no matter how big or small.

Wow sorry that last one got a bit cheesy and over emotional sorry about that! I hope you all enjoyed this little post. I would again like to thank Zoe for nominating me and I would like to nominate………..

Hudson Taylor Concert

For those of you who read my last blog post you would know that I went to see Hudson Taylor perform over the weekend, and can I just say that they were AMAZING. I was really lucky and was three rows from the stage so could see everything. They were so energetic and gave everything into their performance. It was also the last night of their first headlining tour and you could tell it was a special moment for them. They also had two incredible opening acts that later joined them on stage. It was a great concert and I would definitely go see them again, in fact they are actually returning to Cork soon so I am really looking forward to that if I can go.

So for this post I thought that I would share with you a few photos from the concert. Hope you enjoy!

Everyone on stage including Jack Morris and Southern

The concert was amazing if you haven’t checked out Hudson Taylor I would highly advise it! They were incredible to watch and even better to listen to. Its great seeing a band I’ve loved for ages now grow in popularity and grow as artists. Their New album ‘Singing for strangers’ is must have on your Ipod! Also go check out Jack Morris and Southern, since the concert I have had them none stop playing on Youtube!

I hope you enjoyed this little post and I’m sorry if the picture quality isn’t 100% I have better photos up on my instagram account @waitingwallflowers and on my twitter account @waitingflowers so go check those out! be sure to like or leave a comment I love hearing from you! and if you’d like sure to subscribe. Thanks for reading.
