Firstly I just wanted to say how grateful and amazed I am by all your lovely support and comments! It honestly means so much! Today I just thought I would share some recent thoughts, dreams and feelings ✨

So it’s been today really that I have finally started to feel a lot more positive than I have the whole of 2017! really! This week has been quite a rough one, I’ve been feeling all over the place, but it hasn’t been the worst. I think I’ve slacked a bit this week lol with school; my sister ended up doing a few pieces of my homework somehow as I just couldn’t deal with it haha! But overall, my friends especially today and yesterday have made me laugh so much and have just generally been amazing friends. I think sometimes we forget just hoe much fun and happiness we can have when we’re with the right people.

Do any of you have any advice for life in a- levels and degrees? I felt like I needed some inspiration and motivation to work harder and get the grades I need so I’ve been looking into different ways I could go. Let’s just say I have a bit of hard work to do to get to where I want, but I feel in the right mood at the moment to work hard, and nothing will stop me now.

I’ve spent some much time daydreaming recently it’s untrue! I think about everything and anything, but I’m not so sure some teachers and people like it as I feel like I’m often in my own world and you can literally tell by looking at me that my minds elsewhere 🙂

Anyway, I’ll probably end this here before I carry on rambling haha. I know I’ve sort of already said this but I just want to thank everyone so much! I’m determined to return all the love and kindness everyone has given me recently, I owe everyone so much! I have next week off so I’m determined to catch up and become more positive. I hopefully have a tag coming up soon too.

Sunsets – happiness 



Today I thought I would share something that makes me happy: sunsets! I was going to go and take some pics over the fields as I just love days like that but it’s the most grey, dull day ever! Plus, I have a huge amount of homework to do- so much fun! So instead I will share some snaps of sunsets (I think there is also one sunrise too!) I’ve captured on my iPhone 5s over about the past year. Sorry this isn’t all of them, it would not let me upload them all 😦  Hope you like them!

Tough times!


Sometimes when you think things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place. A quote that has helped me so much in the past few weeks, well the whole of 2017! really!

I’ve had another rough few days again; my head spinning and just not feeling myself, at all. But I have done it! I have made it through another school week, where yet again my strength has been tested to my limits. Yes, it’s been pretty awful but lets focus on the positive: I did it! So can you.

Do you guys ever try to be positive but you just can’t, like you feel almost stuck, helpless and so confused at the person you have become? Do you ever overthink constantly and just literally watch the time tick by, knowing you could be spending those few seconds, minutes, hours feeling happier and much more positive? Well lets just say I answer yes to all those questions! Here’s a different question though: do you guys have any advice? I know I should probably be giving the advice on here, but I guess I just want to see if anyone can help me further haha!

Moving on, I just wanted to quickly mention anxiety. I sometimes feel like it’s taking over my life, like there’s no escape. To be honest though, putting on a smile and hiding everything does help sometimes, though it’s probably not the best haha. I’m sort of struggling at the moment, but I know that it will get better and I think I just need to stop being so hard on myself, like everyone keeps telling me. Oh and quickly, is the feeling like your going to choke a lot of the time and then stressing about it even more a thing to do with anxiety? I don’t know if any of you will know haha but I tried googling it and I could not really find anything, only anxiety again 😦

Sorry if it looks like I’m just moaning lol I just kind of felt myself like writing down my emotions, and I also want to look back on this and be proud of how strong and far I have come.

I hope all of you guys are okay, and please feel free to comment, oh, and I hope to post some things on fashion and other little things like that soon,

10 things I can’t live without! 



Today I’ll be listing 10 things that I can’t live without, as recently I’ve been thinking a lot about what things and people make me happy and how lucky we all actually are. They’re probably not going to be in order btw! 😊

  1. My parents! My world, well I wouldn’t be here without them and everything they do for me. 
  2. My brothers and sisters! I guess I have quite a big family; I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters but I absolutely love it! 😊
  3. All my other family ❤ The people that makes us smile, laugh and live better. 
  4. My friends. We all have rough times, but these always show us whose worth keeping in our lives and who makes them better. 
  5. This probably sounds really sad but technology! It’s not all bad, you could say I’m on social media a bit too much though 🙁
  6. Good food and drinks: well it’s more of a necessity but still!
  7. People in general, whether that be teachers or just those nice people that do little kind acts, whether good or bad, they help us live better. 
  8. The beautiful world I live in. Looking outside everyday and seeing magical things like sunsets ( like the one above haha I’m a bit obsessed!) .
  9. Learning. Even though I moan a bit too much about school, I love it really and am so grateful for all the opportunities I get offered to help me lead the best life I can.
  10. Being able to experience new things and being healthy and happy, I’ll forever be grateful ❤

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope your all good,

Being organised (for once ;)



As some of you will probably know, I am currently studying for my GCSE’S in 2018 and today I thought I would share some of my tips and tricks! I’m actually trying so hard at school right now, as since Christmas I have felt that I’m falling behind a bit 😦

img_5223I know many people say this, but it works! Pack your stuff the night before, to save yourself from that last minute rush, often forgetting things.

In case you were wondering, I bought this backpack from River Island just before Christmas, it was £20 I think 🙂


Revision is key! As everyone says! I have big dreams and I have very high expectations of myself, so I am trying really hard to revise and work hard to get the grades I want; never give up!img_5233

Plenty of pretty revision cards make it slightly more bearable and you can easily take them anywhere. These were about £1.50 each I think from wilkos.


The next thing: notebooks! As you can probably tell by now, I have a bit of an obsession with pretty things and for me notebooks work so well, and I can use all my notes to keep revising old topics.


My fave notebooks ever! The Gabriella (velvetgh0st) primark range, which I am honestly in love with (notice the matching duvet cover as well haha) . I think these were about £2 each, and they are absolutely gorgeous!




Next is one thing I thought was really cute. My friend loves making origami and she made me a lovely butterfly. Me, being me, decided to turn it into a revision butterfly at the time haha!                                                                                                             Here it is!img_5230




img_5228Finally, I generally just think that lovely stationery makes you much more willing to do work! Here is a little corner of my desk, which I guess sounds kind of sad but I love it!




Anyway, I think the most important thing is that we all work hard to achieve our dreams and goals. I hope you enjoyed this post, and never give up!

It genuinely feels crazy that it’s already February haha! So for me this week has been quite a big week in terms of my choices and just generally making myself feel better and happier in such the big hopes and dreams I have planned for 2017.

January, was definitely not my favourite month lets put it that way! Looking back, I think that January was out to test me, my friendships, my happiness untitled-77and in a way to help me find myself a bit more. There were moments when I honestly felt like giving up, crying, and just shutting myself away, yet I could just never relax. Ever! Have you ever felt just not yourself, where your mind would just continuously think the worst, where you would spend nearly all your time worrying and almost walking around in a daze? That’s exactly how I felt!

I was constantly overthinking and just worrying about EVERYTHING. I would say I knew something wasn’t right when I just didn’t feel me, when people would always ask me if I was okay as they knew something wasn’t right. I ended up seeing a teacher about everything, more than once (before the lowest times she knew about everything) but I think that one time was probably the worst I got, when I felt like I could no longer eat and went through a few days of eating next to nothing and having sleepless nights. It just so happened that that day I was at my worst, when I hadn’t slept the night before and hadn’t eaten anything was the day of my parents evening. My parents, me and the teacher discussed it and I finally came almost like at peace with myself that I was most likely suffering anxiety.

From then on I had a rocky few days, but after not eating anything kind of scared me, I began to think myself into the right place and something clicked within me, when I finally started to realise how maybe things could actually be falling into place and not falling apart.

Just over a week on from one of my worst times, I can now say I am feeling much “better” if that makes sense, in myself. I know I still have a way to go, but I also know that things from now on can only get better and I’m determined to make this my year. I think that as they say, we are all much stronger than we believe and we’ve all got this.

I’m sorry this post was quite long, but I hoped you liked it 🙂

My fave photos!


Today I thought I would share some of my photos and my love for taking them (especially of the beach and sunsets!)


Here is the sunset at Blackpool in October, but unfortunately I live quite far away :(. Nothing beats sunsets, especially beach ones!img_2681

MY FAVOURITE PLACE! St Ives in Cornwall! Do you have a certain place where your happiest memories are made? This is BY FAR mine! I’ve spent many happy holidays here making memories and having fun with my family. Nothing beats this place!

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

This contrasts a fair bit to the beach theme, but another of my loves has to be London! I honestly just love the buzz and amazing vibes you get there, no matter where you’re visiting.


This again is taken at my fave place St Ives with my fave person (most of the time haha) my sister!

Sorry there weren’t many photos, but I definitely hope to post more in the future and definitely do more posts like these! Looking at some of my favourite photos has definitely made me feel much happier, and I can honestly say there is something so magical about how special photos are.

Please feel free to leave any comments as always,

Doing the right thing!

Just before I get started, I would just like to say that this probably won’t be my normal type of post, I just really wanted to write something like this! Sorry if it is a bit long haha!

Recently, I have been through quite a lot of things that have made me question who I am as a person and have tested me quite a lot. I ended up reading a huge amount of Pinterest quotes, which unlike me normally, have made me think (probably a bit too much!) about myself as a person and what are my limits.

All of this helped me to make quite a big decision about whether I should actually be a bit fairer on myself, and do the right thing, even if it could lead to many consequences. I am writing this with my head filled with worry, but somehow I do feel proud of myself for doing the right thing. More to the point anyway, I would just like to sum up my overall message if you get what I mean. Fear. We all experience it, me probably more than some people. Fear should not define your life, however, and even if you know something will probably hurt in the short-term, it will be the best in the long-term.

Finally, I just want to say that I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason, however cliché it may sound!  At the moment, I don’t wish to go into what has made me think like this, (maybe it will be a future post who knows haha)  but I do want to say that it does get better, and in 5 years time will it even mean anything to you?

We’re all human and we all make mistakes, but I think people overlook the impact that tiny kind acts have on people! So just think more, about the journey, it will all be okay in the end and everything along the way is there to teach us something new.

Why did I start my blog?

I decided to finally start this blog after a while of considering whether to do it or not. After seeing many people start blogs and have so much fun whilst doing them I realised that there was actually nothing stopping me from creating my own!

You may be wondering why I chose the name “dreamsandwavesxo” so here I will explain it! the “dreams” part came to be after I decided that I wanted this blog to be all about inspiration, and one of the biggest parts of my life right now is my dreams and aspirations as I have my whole life in front of me and I want to be happy for the rest of that! The “waves” part is all about the general flow of my life and the waves that come and go. I guess that the name is quite meaningful haha!

Anyway, I just thought I’d let you know what I hope you will see on this blog. At the moment I would like to put a bit of everything, whether that’s life, make-up, revision, fashion, photography and so on…

Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions, I would be very grateful!
