New School Year Resolutions

Although our whole " fresh start" "change your life around" " give up stuff" inspirational resolution phase was almost 9 months ago, for kids, a new school year might as well just replace that. Actually, what is the point of school starting again in September. Oh the summer holidays. I think my theory is somewhat correct so discussion to myself is now closed. But shall we just get onto this post? Yes. Yes we shall. --->

Life Through The Lense | DaliRae

As you probably know if you've been reading my recent blog posts, I was a away for the week. Right down to the South of England where I am formally known as Dally. 

So basically, I went down to Somerset and stayed on a farm. Hehe yeah. I come here every year (sometimes twice) but this time I had a blog... and an iPhone. Those two mashed together plus a sprinkle of my time equaled this post you are reading right now...

Currently On My Mind #1 | DaliRae

EXAGGERATED WARNING: I am not currently, currently, doing this at this very exact moment you are reading this as I had to post  this when wifi signal was in reach. 

Currently //
I am sitting in a car on my way to Frome. If you don't know what Frome is, it is a city in the South of England. That's about all I can say if I'm honest. Recently we've been going on quite a few long journeys as the countryside is far from any remote destination. Oh yes I forgot to say where I am in my last post. Well if your detective skills are up to scratch, you'll know I'm in the south of England for a week, Somerset to be exact. 

I am actually quite annoyed right now as the reason for me grasping for my phone to write this very post has somewhat flew out of my mind. It was a thought, a question. Bleh. 

Well this section would be filled with my forgotten ponderings (don't think that's a word) however as you just read, I have simple forgotten them. So, I'll think of something else. 

Has anyone been watching all the "ice bucket challenges"? Hehe I love them. Seeing celebrities drenched all for a good cause. If you don't know what it is, someone donates ten dollars/pounds for pouring a bucket of ice water on themselves. They then challenge three other people to do it within 24 hours. If they chicken out, they have to donate one hundred dollars/pounds all to charity. You can find so many of these on Instagram and youtube. I'm telling you now, once you've started, it's difficult to stop.  

My personal favourite thing is seeing celebrities nominate other people, as that feeling you get when two of your favourite people know each other or are just friends is just something I love. The connections are real. To be honest, that's probably the only thing I really like, all the reactions to the icy, dangerously refreshing water were the same. Screams, shaking, some would just simple stand there and just say "that was cold" well noo. 

The reason I came across these in the first place was due to my "stonefield" shipping as Taylor swift nominated one half of the couple. Now, if you don't know the couple known as stonefield, you don't know what shipping is. Andrew Garfield + Emma Stone = Perfection. The amount of times I've internally died due to the cuteness I can't even. 

Okay so we just arrived in Frome so I shall have to take a short break off his post but I will come back where I may be in a completely different mindset or even have remembered my original thoughts!

So I'm back even thought it makes absolutely zero difference to you. If you're interested, we only walked around the farmers market and auctions with livestock and that stuff. 

Where was I? I know exactly. 

STONEFIELD! So I watched the amazing spider man several days ago and I just loved Andrew Garfield so I did it a little research, haha research (typing his name in google images). Through that I found that he was in a relationship with Emma stone, who plays Gwen Stacey, his girlfriend in Spider-Man. I kicked myself when I found out they'd been together since 2011. Why didn't I find them earlier?  There is nothing that I love more than couples who are also play fictional couples too. Example, ian somerhalder and nina dobrev. Nian I believe. So they are just cute. Like really cute. 

Let me bombard you with gifs and pictures ---->

Some things never change:

The way andrew looks at Emma 

They are the same people:

Well that's it for now. This was just a little talky post which I actually enjoyed writing more than usual. I genuinely have a tonne of posts in my drafts which I've written but just need pictures taken and banners making. Ugh can time just come to me idk. 

Byee see you whenever

Back To School Wishlist | DaliRae

Unfortunately for us British kids, school uniform is a very common thing for there to be in a lot of schools. That means, when I say "back to school wishlist or haul", clothes will never be mentioned. Now that I've mentioned that, we can get started! Oh and I literally spent around an hour trying to think of some of these and I am actually quite happy with the end result so yeah! --->

Boored In Suumerrr! | DailRae

Sorry for no post yesterday I was at Alton Towers! We went on the smiler twice and when I came back I still felt dizzy. :| BUT IT WAS AMAZING...

Unless you are a social queen, I highly doubt you will have your calender booked... completely. And unless you have a loooong to-do list (I do actually), you will probably be bored. Hmm. Well, today I am going to tell you some ideas on things you can do when you are bored!

Let us goo --->

DIY Washi Tape Page Markers | Back To School | DaliRae



Okay then. I don't know what just happened. 

Buuuut I do know that I have another DIY for you today... with washi tape... again.... ooh I do love my tape don't I?

So who loves these?


Although I am not "obsessed", I must admit they are as cool/useful as a bit of plasticy paper can get. They are also slightly overpriced  as a bit of plasticy paper can get and patternless. Not once have I seen a patterned page marker (I don't know about you though!) That is why I decided to do a DIY page marker made entirely out of washi tape! I thought of this a few days ago and have since then fell in love. Let us go then shall we? ---->

Back To School Hacks | DaliRae

Oh hi! I'm doing pretty good at this back to school thing aren't I aye? But I tend to find that my "amazing ideas" which I totally am up for last about a few days. Luckily for you guys, those few days give me enough time to write and schedule posts, posts and more posts. That is my theory anyway. Call me Einstein (or Darwin I don't know). 

This post will hopefully be marginally longer than my most recent post. But we shall find out shan't we? Anyway get ready to be mind blown by these hacks I gathered from a mix of the Internet and my beloved brain. Let's go! --->

DIY Washi Tape Pencil | Back To School | DaliRae

To start off my "back to school" series (although I am thinking of changing the series name, Yes that is probably allowed) , I am going to do a DIY. Mainly because I actually haven't done a DIY in a while. oops. aha sorry. Aanyway, well that was every so slightly virtually awkward in a weird way (for me anyway). But enough of whatever I was going on about, LET'S DO THIS TING --->

Back To School Series + update?

Literally, about a second ago, I decided to start a back to school series. Obviously it's coming up. You know you scroll down your youtube feed only to be greeted by "back to school supplies haul!" and "DIY School Supplies!"  Yes, okay, that would probably be me if I was a youtuber but you know... Meh. 

Anyway, I literally just decided to do this so expect DIYs, Tips, Hauls, probably more DIYs but yeah! I will aim to get a post out maybe every two days but I can aim high and I'm telling you know, my procrastination levels are at an all time high so maybe lower your expectations slightly.  oh and 


Yes I had to eccentuate that with caps. 

Anyway, I shall get onto writing posts! 

Just a quick post to update! 

Dali! x

Un-Executed Ideas

If you may ever find yourself in the "back end" of my blog, you will be blown away by the amount of drafts which live in my posts section of blogger. I counted and I found 22 posts which I started and never finished. I mean, I may find myself, one day, going through and finishing them off but something that you might of not know about me, is that I am quite impatient. Starting things and never finishing them is a bad habit of mine which I kinda need to stop.
