So every week I volunteer at a charity shop called Barnardoes. I love 'working' there and i think it's a great thing that anybody can do! It's really easy to find out about different ways you can volunteer, you could just use google for your local area or just pop into the charity shops - that's what I did!

So if you have a spare couple of hours in your week or weekend - i only do two hours on a Saturday, but every little helps(!) - find out about volunteering and see if you can! :-)

Happy blogging!

New haircut!

Just thought I'd share with you my new haircut! It's not that much different, but basically I had about two inches off and have had a little bit of a side fringe cut in!

Thank you!

The moon!

I don't know if it's just me, but I think the moon has been particularly bright recently! What do you think? Anybody else noticed? Please let me know by leaving a comment below. 
So here are my shots of the moon being what i think as brighter than normal:

So is a brighter moon the start of the end of the world we've been threatened with? Will 2012 really happen?
As much as i doubt it, let me know what you think and post any pictures you have!

Please let me know your thoughts in a comment! :-)
Thank you

So, so sorry!

SO SORRY! I haven't posted in half a month! I've been so busy with school lately and i really do apologise for not posting.
It is the half term now though, so I will try to post as much as possible!

How has everyone been? Up to much? Hope all is well :-)

I will post again soon,

Valentines day

Just a quick note,

I have just realised that I have had this blog for a couple months now and I have restrained myself from posting about JLS! So i thought I'd do my first JLS blog post now!

It would mean so much to me if you could spare five minutes to vote for them for the Brit awards; you can do so here:

JLS love to help people (most of the reason I love them as much as do)
Here they are cheering up children in Uganda:

JLS have just released their charity single 'Proud'. You can listen to it here:

It's a really heart warming song that I'm sure you'll love it just as much as I do!

Having a laugh all in the aid of charity!

JLS are also nominated for a BRIT award! They have already won two, and are now nominated for a third; best UK single for She Makes Me Wanna. You can listen and watch the video here:

Here is where you can buy Jukebox their third album:

It would mean so much to me if you could spare five minutes to vote for JLS for the Brit awards; you can do so here:

You can follow them on Twitter here:!/JLSOfficial

Thank you!
Hope you enjoy JLS as much as I do!
Please vote for them for the Brits! (Link above)

I made a baaag :)

One day my Mum said she was going to throw out this old plain bag, and for some strange reason I decided to keep it and sow about 100 buttons on it! Took me a loooong time, but I like the result :)

Happy Blogging!

I'm drinking tea.

So where I am (Devon, England) it is literally FREEZING cold! I have double layered fluffy socks on, my pj's, dressing gown and all, and i'm still cold! So what better to do than have a cup of tea?
As I was making the tea I strangely wondered the history of tea, so here you go!
There are various legends surrounding the origins of tea. Perhaps the most famous is the Chinese story of Shen Nung, the emperor and renowned herbalist, who was boiling his drinking water when leaves from a nearby tea shrub blew into the cauldron. He tasted the resulting brew, and the beverage of tea was born.

For more tea related info you can visit:
-Yes, a site dedicated to tea!

Thank you,
Happy blogging,

I met a writer.

In school today a writer called Jodie Lee (male) came to our school, you may not of heard of him -yet!
But he was very insightful into the world of script writing, books and novels. A novel has to be more than 60,000 words,otherwise it is a book, well I never knew that!

He does have a website where he runs short story and poem competitions, so when I find it I'll be sure to post it for anyone who asks or comments! So please do if you would like any more info :)

I'm surrounded by piles of homework, so I best go! Sorry byeee!

Happy blogging,

Giveaway timeeeeeeeee!

Stuck In Books' blog is 1 year old! Come celebrate with her & enter to win a book:

Good luck!

Only 2 pieces of homework.

We have a new headmistress, well she's actually been at our school for about a year now. She has set a new homework 'schedule' where we are supposed to be getting 3 pieces of homework a day; we've been at school for almost a week now, and how much homework? Only two! But hey, who's complaining? Not me!

I have my Prefect interview coming up in a week and surprisingly I'm not actually that nervous! I'm aiming for head girl, but I'd still be happy with the title of Prefect. My Mum was a Prefect and my sister - one year older - is a Prefect, so I have to live up to that!
Anybody else aiming for Prefect or has been a Prefect?! Let me know in a comment :-)

Hope everyone is alright,
Happy blogging,

Just me again

So sorry I didn't blog yesterday, I am currently in year 10 (my GCSE years), which means I need to revise a lot more than I used to and do a lot more homework, etc. So I won't be able to update my blog as much as I'd like to.
Hope everyone understand, really sorry. I should still be able to blog every other day or so though.

Happy blogging,

I thought I'd share with you the amazing hand signed book I have. It was signed about 3 months ago in London. I didn't get the meet the author personally but managed to get the book signed, forever grateful!

The personalised signature 

The cover of the amazing, must-read book!

This book is actually SO amazing! I am currently reading the third in this series (The Mortal Instruments).

Thank you,
Happy blogging,

A slight technical error, but it's turned out okay :)

So it has took a lot longer than I wanted it to..but here is the picture of my new room :) PS If you don't like JLS, skip these pictures, haha :)

Thanks for looking,
Have a nice day!

The first day back at school..

I haven't read ALL day! Well a book anyway..
It was my first day back at school (a year 10 student), and to be fair, it wasn't really that bad; almost like we'd never even had the Christmas holidays. Everyone was cheerier as they now have things they didn't the last time I saw them, seems like everyone had a great Christmas -including me!
How was your day? Please comment
I will shortly upload pictures of how yesterday went (the post I wrote: ). But briefly, it did go quite well, although it did take A LOT longer than i wanted and expected! :p

Thank you so much for reading,
Happy blogging,
Laureeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen. (woah, a few more 'e's' than i usually write :p

Here's a random fact for you!
On April 15th (my birthday) it's Easter!! I forgot to 2063..hahaa :) In 2001, when I was four, it was Easter on my birthday, which was pretty cool, presents and Easter eggs all in the same day!

That's all I wanted to say really! :)

Happy blogging,


So I made my own Tumblr months ago, but only just started to really use it recently, it is mostly about fashion, JLS, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, and other things I find good and funny! :p But I would love to follow you! So please leave your Tumblr address in a comment and I'll follow!

This is my Tumblr: Please check it out and follow if you like!

Leave your Tumblr so I can follow! :)

Thank you,
