Leaving School 2018

Yesterday was my last day of school! I have left year 11 now! It was such a lovely day which was so sad but so happy at the same time is deserved a blog post dedicated to this memorable day.

I designed my shirt the day before and obviously I couldn't just go in with a sharpie to mark out my name...I had to be more extra than that so I got the train into town and went to poundland to pick up some gems for my shirt which I used to mark out Tay on the back of my shirt and then my attempt of a fancy font I wrote I did 2013-2018. At my school like most schools we do shirt signing which is so nice because everyone gets to leave you a little message which is so nice to look back on. We also had an assembly at the end for the teachers to say their thank you and goodbyes as well as display some awfully embarrassing photos from our first day as well as all the other photos taken over the years from all the sports days and trips till today and recently. I will miss the friends and laughs and things I have enjoyed for the last five years but I'm ready for the next chapter now.

Montoire Football tour 2018

Last weekend was my favorite weekends of the tour!!!

The football club which I am part of ever ear does a trip to France for a two day football tournament. This is honestly one of my favorite weekends of the year as it is thoroughly enjoyed by all players, parents and general spectators.

We had such a good outcome this year and we had multiple teams make it to the later stages in the competition with some of our MCFC teams making the final and others winning their age category. I was so proud of the boys that I coach who made it to the final and should have won if it was not down to poor decision making by the referee but it just goes to prove the rule, you must always play to the whistle. We even had an 80s night on Saturday evening which was such a laugh with everyone who took part. On Sunday night we all went out for a nice meal and then finished of the evening at the funfair where everyone had a great time and it gave everyone a chance to get even closer and make new friends, as although everyone who went was part of the same football club you all belong to separate team and different age groups but it has been the best opportunity for everyone within the club to become closer and so many new friendships have been formed.

Overall I think it's such a good idea for grassroot football clubs to hold trips like this for their players, as it is such a good experience and helps the players to bond and spend more time together as a team. Some of the boys who played in the tournament played the best football I have ever seen of them and it was very rewarding with the support and progress of all the teams.

Looking for a new up do?

So I have never attempted to do a hair post before as I'm not great at explaining what I do so here goes my first ever try! Here is how I have been doing my hair recently as an alternative to the common styles

1. Twist into a bun 
This is one of my favourite hairstyles which I have and will continue to wear it is more of a dressy hairstyle but it can be made really casual by pulling bits out and dressing it down.
  • take all your hair and part it in your natural parting, mine is to the left side of my head.
  • Go to one side at a time and just take two small bit of hair and twist them round adding in small strands of hair every time going down until you get to the bottom. 
  • Then get a bobby pin to hold it together an repeat on the other side.
  • Once you have finished both sides take the bobby pins out and get all you hair into a low ponytail at the bottom of your head, twist it to get it into the bun shape and secure with a band.
  • Pin and secure your bun how you like it and if you want to make it more casual you can pull out bits at the side like I did, and its as simple as that!

2. Twist side braid
I think this is a lovely hairstyle but for longer hair, however you could adapt this if you have shorter hair and do it on both sides.
  • Party your hair deep in one side of your head.
  • Just like in the previous hairstyle you are going to pick two pieces of hair from the top of the side with the most hair and twist them picking up more and more hair as you go along.
  • When you get to the bottom of that side of your head pull all the rest of your hair round that side and divide all your hair into three sections.
  • Braid normally but pull your hair tight to keep the twist secure.
  • Tie with a hairband and if you want to make it looks more casually messy you can pull out little bits at the side and loosen the end of the braid a bit.

3. Single French Braid
This one is very simply just a single french plait, I think that it is something like all the rest of these hairstyles make a change to the usual plain hair down looks that most people go for and this look has serious detail from behind but doesn't take away from your gorgeous make up.
  • This is better on two day old hair
  • Take a small bit of hair at the very middle front of your hair and divide into three sections
  • Do a normal plait then add in more hair and cross the hair over again.
  • Word down your head until you have included all the hair in the braid.
  • Then just plait like normal until you get to the end and seal with a hair band, hair spray your fly aways if necessary.
