Secrets to a successful sleepover

Chloe, Anna and Lydia
As today's the official start of summer, and the three of us are having a sleepover, we thought we'd give you our tips on a successful sleepover! Enjoy;

1. Photos
So the first key to an awesome sleepover is pictures. The funnier/weirder, the better! Ipads, cameras, computers or just anything that has a camera is fine, just grab your friends and snap the photos! Filters finish the pictures perfectly and here are a few of the ones we've taken:

2. Films
chick flicks are always the best films to watch with your buddies!! 
  • one of our favourites is mean girls... we know all the words back to front & on our tops! haha. 
  • we also like wild child & its a really funny film that is really great to watch with ya gurlss. 
  • pitch perfect is another great film to watch, its funny & has a great cast! 
  • angus thongs & perfect snogging is so funny & its a really girly film! 
  • mamma mia is a perfect sing-along film which will get you in a the mood for a PARRRTAYYY
  • 21 jump street is not really a chic flick but its an action & comedy film with the cutest cast (channing tatum)
3. Food
basically, you need to get the most sugary sweets ever!! haha. 
  • popcorn-sweet,salty
  • sweets-strawberry laces, fizzy fangs, cola bottles, haribos, flying saucers
  • chocolate-buttons, galaxy, wipsa, milky way
  • cok,pepsi,lemonade
  • smores
  • marshmallows
  • hot chocolate
  • crisps-doritos 

4. Outfits

My sleepover essential is a good pair of pj's (or if everyone has one, a onsie!) With the photos and make-up, your pajamas need to look just as fabulous! I always wear an old top with a cheeky pair of bottoms, which last night had monkeys on. Anna and Chloe opted for the shorts and vest option, which is very good for when we are partying to our party shuffle!
The morning after the sleepover is just as important, since where we were going to see people from our primary we had to dress to impress. I wanted to show people that i am a lot more fashionable then 11 year old me!
Anna is wearing; A Hollister top, jeans from new look and a barbour jacket complete with a pair of vans
Chloe is wearing; Jacket from primark, top from primark and leggings from sainsburys and to finish it off she is wearing new look black boots
I am wearing; jeans from M&S (posh stuff) and a sweater from H&M with a vest top underneath from primark. I am wearing it with my customized converse.

5. Playlists
Robin Thicke and Pharell- Blurred Lines
Eve- Tambourine
Avril Lavigne- Here's to never growing up
Miley Cyrus- Party in the USA
Macklemore- Can't hold us
Kanye West & Jay Z- In Paris
Ke$ha- We R who we R
Icona Pop- I love it
Rudimental- Feel the love

Chocolate Cake (Chocolate Victoria Sponge)xx

My mum made a Chocolate Victoria Sponge & put strawberries & icing sugar on top.
I have to say it was delicious - with cream or ice cream its the bees knees!

She got the recipe from a book called 'Baking Book' by Good Housekeeping. 

This book has recipes for cakes, cupcakes, muffins, tray-bakes, cookies, biscuits, cheesecakes, tortes, non-bake cakes, tarts, pastries, breads, special occasion cakes & it shows what baking terms mean. 
I think its a great book.

Ben & Jerry's

I absolutely love Ben & Jerry's ice cream! My all time favorite is Cookie Dough but i didn't have that in my house but i did have Phish Food - which is also extremely delicious. 

i thought i would make a post about it cause i love it so much :)  

I didn't have the whole tub or anything...

which is your favorite ice cream?

After Earth...

Me, Lydia & Chloe went to the cinema on Friday to see After Earth.

Will Smith wrote the film & is also one of the main characters called Cypher. His son Jayden Smith (who is so hot) plays one of the main characters called Kitai.

Its about a man & his son who crash on Earth & everything on the planet will kill humans, they have to try & retrieve a distress beacon which was on the end of the ship that came off when they crashed, will they survive? you will have to see it!!

It is a very action & moving film.
me & my friends started to cry when Jayden was - it was kind of embarrassing but oh well! i definitely recommend you go & see it.

New Jacket

I ordered a new jacket from asos which my friend joni recommended. Its £38 which is £10 cheaper than Topshop & it looks so much nicer! I'm going to wear it to the summertime ball this sunday, and im going with joni, lydia and chloe. I'm going to wear it with a floral skirt, like shown in the picture but blue & a lace holister top with blue vans...

what do you normally wear to a concert?Xxx

Dinner outside...

It's been really hot this week, which is great as its always cold & rainy!! So my mum made me & my sisters a great dinner.

We had pasta with corn & cod!!
I had a salad cause i'm the only one in my family that like it, with a french dressing on - posh!

I enjoyed the rest of the evening by reading a book called Adorkable by Sarra Manning. Its about a girl called Jeane, who doesn't really fit in with people at school & she dresses really weirdly, her boyfriend doesn't like her anymore & likes a girl called scarlet who is so pretty but she is going out with the most popular boy in school, Micheal! so why does Jeane & Micheal keep snogging when they hate each other?
