Hello everyone!!!

I apologise (again) for my delay of posting, i have had so much on and haven't had any time to blog to you!

Over the past few weeks i have been doing some amazing things, as a lot of people do in the summer holidays, one of them being my amazing week at Norjam! Norjam is a jamboree held in the Norfolk show ground for scouts and guides - i met some awesome people and did amazing things!
                  Me and three of my friends took part in 'Norjam's got talent' - there were three days in which you could audition and at the end of each of these days was a semi-final. We didn't audition the first day as we were at pleasure wood hills but on the other two days that we did audition we got through to the semis! Unfortunatly, we didn't get through to the finals but the entire crowd wanted us to, which was amazing!!! We called ourselves Prescripted! Our band continues and we would appreciate it if you subscribed to our youtube channel and took a look at our website!

The week after i went to Devon with my mum, my grandad and his wife. It was amazing! It was beautiful! I swam in ice cold rivers in my bikini, stood at the edge of a waterfall, climbed haytor and loads of other fantastic things!

Since i have been back i have been focusing on my youtube channel - i have done several videos that i would love you to check out!!!

Update - quick flick:

What's in my school bag? 

Shake it off by Taylor Swift - cover by Ellie and Connie

Also, it's back to school week so i have a new school bag and new stuff to go in it! If you're struggling with what to put in your school bag, check out my video!!!

Thankyou so much for reading, it's been a pleasure to write for you today x

What I've been up to

Hey guys!

Firstly, i would like to apologise as it has (once again) been a while since i last posted so this is going to be quite a long one!

The reason i have not been posting as regularly as i would have like is that i have been very busy doing, well, doing this:

Yesterday me and my mum went to Wells, which is a beach in Norfolk (I live in Norfolk so it only took an hour and a half.  We went up the town, bought fish n chips (below), took pictures, went on an extremely (!!!) long walk around the woods that took us about an hour because we got lost. We also went on a little noddy train from the town to the car park so that we didn't have to walk - lol! 
I went almost no makeup yesterday! You proud?

On the noddy train

I decided to have a little fun with dramatic cat eyes! 

I have also started getting out the Wii fit + every day x2 so that i can do better in PE! It's really good fun and wakes me up in the mornings! It makes me feel like i am achieving something when I'm exercising as it shows how you're doing, which is brilliant!

Today i've also been sewing a skirt!

Love, Ellie xxxx

Create the perfect hair-bump + Summer concert at OBHS

Hey guys!

It's Jelly, obvs! Today I'm going to tell you how to recreate a style that I have been using a lot lately - I used to do this style a lot when I didn't have a fringe (bangs for the non-British of you) before, but I always found it quite difficult, but since I got my fringe cut in it's become a lot easier.

You tend to see this style in soaps like Corrie and Eastenders because it's seen as a bit chavy but you can make it looks how you want.

With a fringe
This is a very easy tutorial and I hope to make it easy to follow as it is to actually do. 
1) First, curl or straighten your hair to what ever you prefer, but, if curling, do not curl the fringe as you want that to be smooth
2) Get your fringe and arrange it so that you have formed a bump on top of your head, if your hair tends to fall flat you can back comb the underneath but make sure you smooth the top afterwards.
3) Twist the bit of hair which isn't bumped (the bit you should be holding) and twist it lightly, making sure that the bump stays big. 
4) Get two miniature crocodile clips and clip one in either side of the twist.
5) Hairspray! Try not too make it crunchy as it won't look smooth.

Without a fringe
It's the so similar that I'm not even going to bother with numbers!
You get bits of hair from each side of you parting and do the same as above, the only difference being that you. You just might need a bigger clip!

You can also mess it up a bit, like the picture above. Make your hair wavy and big so that you don't look so pristine.

Straightening your hair adds a touch of 'modern' and 'mainstream' to the hairstyle.

Summer concert

On Tuesday there was a Summer concert at my school and I performed in it by myself for the first time!  It was really fun, even though I was up really nervous before hand.

The video of me singing is now on youtube and included below:

Going out for dinner + the Norfolk show

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I went to my Nan's and we went out for dinner - I just want to tell you how lovely she looked and how I did her makeup.  I will also tell you how I did mine 😘

1) First I did her foundation, I used Garnier bb cream in medium.
2) I then put concealer under her eyes and on her blemishes
3) I then got her blusher (sleek - ) and applied it on her cheeks
4) I then applied her bronzer just below
5) Next, I filled in her eyebrows with the body shops eyebrow kit
6) After that, I brushed her eyelashes (she has fakes from Angelite in kenninghall) and then applied her special mascara
7) I put a turquoise eyeshadow on her lower lid and on the outer half above. 
8) I then got a light blue and filled in the inner half to create a blended effect
9) I then put her special fake eyelash mascara on, only one coat.
10) I then put on her bourjois lipgloss, it's very light and really suits her!

My makeup: 
1) I don't put foundation on because it's bad for your skin and I don't need it anyway so I went straight to my eyes. I did the same kind of style as I did with my Nan's (steps 7 and 8) I put purple on first and then a different light blue
2) I then applied my mascara - I use maybelline's newest mascara (I do NOT reccomend it, it's rubbish!) I put on about five coats
3) Next I got my sleek - flamingo blusher and applied it lightly on my cheeks as it's quite strong
4) I then used a sparkly nude lipstick before filling in my brows lightly with the body shop eyebrow kit.

Nanny is wearing a white dress from the Norfolk show, a necklace made from the Dominican stone and earrings from a craft shop in Attleborough. She is also wearing black heels.
I am wearing white, frilly socks from Topshop, white pumps from primark and a red/orange superdry, strapless dress, which is around £50 and should still be in store. 

The Norfolk show 

Me and my family (mummy, nanny and my bff Carys) went to the Norfolk show last Thursday. It was loads of fun!
There was the actual Tardis!!! I am a really big whovian (but not of the old school doctors, I have seen every episode since the first Christopher eccleston) so this was huge for me!  I cannot stress how exited I was!
We went inside the Tardis and there was the thing! It had all the right buttons and everything!it had the big red one, the pulley thing and the the little flicks things! It was amazing!
Here are some selfayyyys:

I wore:
- spoilt rotten socks from Primark
- black jeans, also from primark
- a black lace jacket from Kylie at m&co 
- a cropped, pink tank top from New Look
- a pink, floral scarf, I have no idea where it's from! Lol!

Me and Carys on the sky flyer! Weeeeeeee!
