5 Saddest Books That I Have Read

It is pretty easy to make me cry whether it is from a book or a film.

1. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.
If you have not yet read this book, I seriously think that you should. The film comes out in June and I am 100% sure that I will be sat sobbing.

2. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.
This is one of my all time favourite books. Everyone I spoke to about this book have all said they they cried.

3. Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman.
This book is not exactly a sad but. However, one the book got towards the end, the tears came. I won’t spoil it by saying what happens though.

4. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.
I cried at the film as well as crying at the book. It’s such a heartbreaking story that it is hard not to cry.

5. The Declaration by Gemma Malley.
This book is not one of the saddest that I have read but I wanted to put it in the list. Towards the end of the story, it turns heartbreaking. While reading it, I had to put the book down because I couldn’t read through the tears.

Cheshire Ice Cream Farm

A Trip to Cheshire Ice Cream Farm

Since today was such a lovely day and the sun was out (which is rare for Britian) my family and I decided to take a trip to Cheshire Ice Cream Farm.

20140418_154507After looking around and realising that the queue to get ice cream was way too long, we decided to take a seat in the cafe until the queue went down. The cafe was so cute. After taking a quick look on the menu, I decided I would get a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows. Not exactly practical considering how hot it was out, but I don’t think I cared.

It was the most amazing hot chocolate that I had ever tasted. Not only did it taste good, it just looked so cute. I now know my favourite drink from Cheshire Ice Cream Farm.

Next stop was to get our ice cream. Who could go to Cheshire Ice Cream Farm without getting ice cream?!
After a long, hard decision of which ice cream falvour I wanted, I finally settled for ‘Choc Fudge Cookie’ and ‘Chocolate, Raspberry and Oreo’.

My two little sisters both decided to get ‘Bubblegum’. The blue colour of their ice cream was crazy!

Oatmeal Banana Cookies - Clean Eating

Oatmeal Banana Cookies – Clean Eating

The other day, I decided to bake myself  some cookies. I wasn’t prepared to make normal cookies and have to spend hours burning them off a the gym so I made a healthy alternative.

These cookies are soooo easy to make and they taste so yummy.

Ingredients:
1 cup of Oats
2 bananas
1 tablespoon of coconut oil (optional)
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
1/4 cup of raisins (optional)

It’s really that easy! I decided to add the coconut oil and chia seeds just for extra health benefits. The raisins were purely because I love them. You could add anything you like. Next time I will be trying things like peanut butter and cinnamon.

All you have to do is mash up the bananas and add the oats. If you are adding anything else, add them after mixing in the oats.

Bake them in the oven for around 10-12 minutes. You may need to experiment with the time as it will depend on how thick you made your cookies.

Enjoy :)

Stahp

Annoying Teen Phrases

Although I am a teenager, I noticed that a lot of people my age and slightly younger keep coming out with such strange phrases.

What brought this to my attention was when someone called me ‘bae’. I’d seen people say this on Twitter all the time but I assumed that everyone had forgot how to spell Babe. I then realised that I had absolutely no idea what it meant. I then looked on Urban Dictionary for the definition and it literally made my day. My favourite definition was; Word used by ghetto people to address their significant other because they have found themselves too lazy to pronounce the entire word “babe”.
After looking into it more (I really need to find something better to do with my life), I found that it was a shorter way of saying ‘babe’ and it also mean ‘before anyone else’. Apparently, just typing the word babe is too hard these days.

Another word I heard which made me seriously concerned for our generation was ‘stahp’. My 12 year old sister came running into my room and screamed it at me. Why can’t people just say the word ‘stop’? I don’t understand why it is ‘cooler’ to stay ‘stahp’. People who say ‘stahp’ need to take their own advice.

‘Cray’ seems to be another word I’ve heard. I think most people can work out that it means crazy. Why can’t people just say crazy?

I won’t even get started on words such as swag and yolo.

I feel like I’m such a sorry excuse for a teenager but I’d much rather talk in English.
