Beaconwood Bluebells ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On a sunny hunt for bluebells with my daughter Isobel and @soprano3 around one of my favourite places today, Beaconwood and the Wincel nature reserve, near Rubery. It's beautiful right now, lots of flowers already out, but so many more to come. These places are so precious. I think I'll be going back again very soon 😍📸 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #westmidlandswildlife #igersbirmingham #bluebells #bhamgram #thisisbham #b31voices #52frames #visitbirmingham #iluvbrum  #independentbirmingham #birminghamweare #weallshootphotos #bbcwm #focalbirmingham #seebirmingham #englandsbigpicture #ukpotd #bigonbrum #bhamupdates #iseebirmingham #hellobrum #igersworcestershire #westmidsphotocollective #bbcmidlands #uk_shooters #brimfulofcurious at Beaconwood Nature Reserve

THE WEATHER OF LOVE Love Has a way of wilting Or blossoming At the strangest, Most unpredictable hour. This is how love is, An uncontrollable beast In the form of a flower. The sun does not always shine on it. Nor does the rain always pour on it Nor should it always get beaten by a storm. Love does not always emit the sweetest scents, And sometimes it can sting with its thorns. Water it. Give it plenty of sunlight. Nurture it, And the flower of love will Outlive you. Neglect it or keep dissecting it, And its petals will quickly curl up and die. This is how love is, Perfection is a delusional vision. So love the person who loves you Unconditionally, And abandon the one Who only loves you Under favorable Conditions.

Recently I’ve been keeping myself entertained on my commute shooting one second exposures, trying to capture that half asleep feeling on the way to work. Only proviso is I need to be moving at the time! I’m finding it interesting how it picks up the lights you don’t always notice and also how it deconstructs everyday life. Grey days are better as they don’t overexpose 😂 #onesecondcommute at Grand Central, Birmingham

HAPPY SUNDAY!💕 • It’s been raining a lot this morning, in fact, hailing!😬 The weather has been so unpredictable this last week!🤦🏼‍♀️ It was snowing last weekend!!😂 Only for a short moment, but even still! • Yesterday I had such a great day! I met up with my best friend from back in year 11. We hadn’t seen each other in so long because life had been so busy and it was difficult to find time when we were both free!😬 Anyway, we had such a great day in Birmingham! We had a look in a few shops, and I finally replaced my bullet journal! I’ve had the leuchtturm bullet journal in my basket on amazon for months, but I just can’t justify £12.99 on a doted notebook. However, I found one in Tiger for £5! Tiger is one of my favourite shops to just go and have a walk around 😄 • I just want to apologise for being so inactive on your accounts. I say that I’m going to read your blog posts and like/comment on your posts but I never get round to it 🤦🏼‍♀️ I hope you guys understand. I will be far more active once my A-levels are out of the way!💗 • This morning I’ve got some psychology work done and I’m currently writing an essay for English!🤷🏼‍♀️ I’ve done 2 out of 3, so once this is done, I just have some research to do and then I can focus on revision (until I get more homework lool). I feel so unproductive when I keep doing homework!😟 I keep forgetting that it actually counts as revision 😬 • I’m going to go now and have something to eat (I’m so hungry haha) and carry on writing this essay!📝💪🏼 • QOTP: WHAT IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVOURITE MEAL?🤪 at Birmingham, United Kingdom

📍Victoria Square, Birmingham —————————————————- Hello everybody, it’s been a hot minute since I posted!🤯 I guess life got in the way, whenever I get round to posting, I always type a caption and then press cancel!😬 • I have been pretty busy these past couple of weeks (story of my life!) focusing on my school work 😅 My photography work particularly is stressing me out SO MUCH!😩 I have been having to rip pages out of my sketchbook and rearrange it so it flows a lot better 😬 It’s starting to come together again now, but I think I need to get a few more pictures this weekend! Just a tiny shoot focusing on reflections 😌 • The past couple of weeks has been full of highs and lows!😅 My major high which I’m only going to mention once, and once only, because I’ve kept it quiet and I haven’t told people unless they’ve asked. I don’t want people to think I’m bragging or stupid... I got 47/50 on my English coursework!!!! You guys know how much it STRESSED ME OUT and I would’ve settled for a B happily! All of the tears were worth it I guess 😁 I feel stupid for worrying but I want you to know that I am a natural worrier. I overthink everything. Just because I was in top sets throughout school, I still worried about failing all of my GCSEs. Surely that’s slightly irrational, right? It’s just who I am! I guess I’m just lucky. But I’m still allowed to worry and be upset if I don’t get a grade that I want. That’s one thing that annoys me about the education system - it is only accepted that people who are failing can worry, but others are seen as stupid for worrying! Anyway, onwards and upwards! • If there’s one thing that you take from this caption, it’s that hard work DOES pay off. You will make sacrifices in your life but it is so so so worth it in the end. Success isn’t just placed in your hands, you need to strive for your goals and work towards them. Not everything in life goes to plan, but everything happens for a reason. Do your future self a favour, make the little changes so that you’re closer to your goals and work hard!💗 • QOTP: WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT?🏆

Is this picture a bit too over-edited?👀 I feel like I need to put more effort into my feed this summer so I'm going to do that, I've let it slip a little during exams and NCS!🤦🏼‍♀️ I've finished NCS now though, woooo!!🎉 This week we've been working on our social action projects. So on Monday we did a scavenger hunt and it was so much fun! Our team won and it was down to me for leading the team (I wasn't even team leader haha) 😜 One of the tasks was to perform a movie to the public in under a minute and we did Romeo and Juliet 😂😩 We had to have loadssss of team photos too 😂😂 On Tuesday we bought the resources for our volunteer day which we did at an old people's respite home, and the campaign day where we went out in town and promoted racial equality 😋 They all went really well except I was so fed up of my team being so lazy 🙄 On the volunteer day we were doing gardening and I found two of my team members sat inside eating... I flipped 😂😂 I'm so glad to have finished though, I was getting so fed up of my team as they were pretty lazy and didn't want to co-operate. The member of staff running my group felt sorry for me so she gave me the £20 Nando's voucher which was meant to be for the whole team as a prize for the scavenger hunt 😂😂 Today I've had a really lazy day. I've tidied my wardrobe all out and I seem to be attached to certain clothes 😂😂 I need to go and finish it off now, so I'll keep you updated over on my story!💗 Would any of you be interested in me going live any time soon?🤷🏼‍♀️ at Selfridges

TAGGED SOME OF MY FAVES😜Aloha! Long time no see eh?😳 July has been such a busy month and we're not even half way through!🙈 Yesterday I finished my second week at NCS, we were at a university about 5 minutes away from my house!😋 After the first week I desperately wanted to stay at home in my own bed and to be honest, I didn't even want to go away again. When I got to NCS it felt like I was back home again because it was so strange having been away from my team and the rest of the NCS wave for 3 nights but I had some time to recover (and prom) and then I was back!😌 We had to cook all of our own food for the 4 nights, I did most of the cooking because nobody else in the flat could really cook. I didn't really think I could cook but I'm actually not terrible!🙃 We had spaghetti bolognese on the first night, then fajitas on the second, we were meant to have sausage and mash on the third night and then we had a massive pizza feast on the last night. My friend forgot to drain the water out of the mash on the third night so we couldn't have sausage and mash, instead I had a sausage sandwich. The program leader was staying with us and she sent a video to all of the mentors and other NCS staff for our wave on the "NCS group chat" and then my mentor was like to me "did you enjoy your mash last night?" Everybody kept taking the mick 😂😂😂😂😂 we also set off the fire alarm on that same night, somebody else had set it off on the night before 😂😂 On the last night we made pizzas, cooked some garlic bread, made salad and I also had a go at making chips which were actually alright!😂😂😂 I've had such a confidence boost over the last few days, especially when it comes to public speaking. We did a dragons den thing yesterday and one of the dragons in particular pointed out me for my confidence and speaking skills, I was over the moon! I did a speech about world peace to the rest of the wave, so about 50-60 people. I also did one to the whole wave and some parents at the showcase! I've definitely become a lot more confident when it comes to speaking! We also went to an old people's home and we're going back next week to volunteer 💗 QOTP: what are you doing this weekend?✨

BONJOUR MY LOVELY PEOPLE! I hope you've all had a wonderful few days, I've been away in Northumberland on my first week of NCS!🙈 I thought there may have been some sort of wifi there (that works) but I couldn't even get a service!😩 I had to go to other people's rooms for a service 😂😭 I went away on Sunday and we sat in this nightclub in my town (which was the meeting spot) playing a load of ice breaking games and it was pretty fun tbh but it seemed to drag on FOREVER! We set off eventually and on the way we stopped off at some services in Leeds, I got a doughnut from Greggs 😜🍩 We went to our rooms and the rooms were very basic as expected, but the bathrooms were DISGUSTING!😷 Of course it's not going to be The Ritz but it was so unhygienic. There were 2 showers and 2 toilets between about 40 girls... Also there were posters about STDs and Sexual Health EVERYWHERE 😂😂😂 there was this one about an app to find condoms 🤷🏼‍♀️ The food in all honesty could've been worse but it was pretty bad. It got to the point where I stopped eating 😂🙈 The pasta was nice there but everything else made me feel so so sick. We had a barbecue on the last night and that was good but I didn't feel like eating too much 😂 On the first day we did a 6 mile hike up some hills and I've only just recovered - fell over 3 times, it was so physical 😂 On the second day we did crate stacking (me and this girl in my group won with 14 crates), rock climbing, archery and the zip wire. The weather wasn't too great on the Tuesday so we couldn't do a lot tbh ☹️ On the last day we went gorge walking. Basically we had to jump off cliffs into water and walk against the force of the water in the rivers - I hated it sooo much! Luckily it wasn't too cold but I couldn't do any more than one jump 🙈 It scared the life out of me because I couldn't breathe or see. I thought I was drowning 😂😂 Somebody pulled me up but let go of me too soon and I fell so somebody else pulled me up and ugh it was so frightening!🤦🏼‍♀️ I really enjoyed the evenings because I got to mingle with people out of the other teams, we all just sat around and got to know each other whilst eating a load of crap 😂
