I love inspirational books. I love books which teach you how to better yourself or tell the true life stories of how inspirational people got to where they are today. It's pretty clear that I want to work in the fashion industry when I'm older, so there was no second guessing when I purchased #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso, the CEO and founder of Nasty Gal clothing!
Since I started my blog and YouTube channel earlier this year (which the majority of the videos...
What was your first impressions of each other? Olivia: When I first met Chloe I was at first really intimidated by her. She was really pretty and so cool and confident and I remember attempting to complement her and absolutely failed and then thought that she would never like me because she thought I insulted her...
Me: I was actually so excited to meet Olivia because she was the "new girl" in our year and our school was soooo small so it was like a godsend when new people came. I remember thinking she was really pretty and I loved her hair but the first thing she said to me was about my shoes being too high because I was wearing heels and I got so defensive... Let's just say we weren't the best of friends at the start hahaha! What’s your favourite memory together? Olivia: Oh my God there are so many I can't pick one! But I have to say the two are:
- Making a bed out of pillows because she was to scared to sleep in the spare room after watching a scary movie at mine.
- The time we decided to go to a party and ended up pre-pre drinking and eating so much food but still being the first there!
- Literally every lunch time at school I'd just eat whatever food Olivia had because she always had the nicest food.
- Whenever she'd stay at mine and wake up she would literally just throw herself on top of me yelling "I WANT COFFEE!!"
- Dancing on the podium of the DJ booth in a club in Barcelona when everyone else got kicked off by security (they clearly loved watching us nearly fall to our deaths)
Do you have any nicknames for each other? Olivia: We call each other so many things like "bitch" "bestie" and "princess".
Me: "whatup hoe"
What is something that annoys you about the other person? Olivia: The fact that she knows me so well means that sometimes I don't know what I want and she does, ahaha.
Me: The fact that she decided to move all the way to Amsterdam for uni and leave me when we could have gone to Newcastle together hunting down Scotty T.
If you could go anywhere in the world together, where would it be and why?
Favourite inside jokes?
So the week is finally here where everyone goes back to school and Summer is basically declared...
Popularity really isn't a thing.
Don't deny it, everyone wants to be liked and "popular". Theres always the "popular kids" in school- the ones who everyone wants to be friends with and everything they do seems to be the best thing in the world. But haven't you noticed that the most of the time the ones who are considered "popular" are the ones who surround themselves with gossip and drama? A lot of the time in school this is considered "cool" but deep down we all know those people are the ones everyone secretly hates. We're judged on our company, not just by ourselves, and the most down to earth, nicest people are usually not the popular ones.
Once you've left school you won't ever speak to the majority of people ever again.
Once you've left school you'll quickly learn who your friends really were and who just spoke to you because you were there. A lot of friendships don't last after school but that's ok because everyone changes and peoples true colours definitely come out after they've left!
High school relationships aren't everything.
Theres always that one couple in school who everyone adores and thinks they're going to get married, have kids and live happily every after. They're the couple who makes everyone else feel like they're going to die alone if they don't get into a relationship asap. But let's be honest, relationships are unnecessary hassle and most of the time, everyone decides to get involved and stick their nose in. You have the rest of your life to get into a relationship, being single and young is way more fun anyway!
Don't get too stressed over exams. They really aren't everything.
We're taught that exams are literally the biggest deal in the world and if we fail then we may as well just give up on life and accept that we're forever destined for failure. But exams really aren't everything and once you've got your results, you never really think about them again. I know a lot of people who have failed their exams but still got into ALevels, college or uni. I even know people who quit education all together and went to get jobs. Exams really aren't the end of the world, so don't stress about them so much!
Don't be afraid to ask for help! You won't look dumb.
School may feel like the worst thing in the world right now, but you'll honestly miss it when you're gone.
It wasn't a surprise to anyone that I hated school. I made that very clear when I was there. But honestly make the most of it! Don't take people/friendships for granted because you'll miss them when they're not there everyday. Don't get too caught up in drama and gossip because it's soooo unnecessary! Just take every day as it comes, have a laugh with your mates and don't take everything so seriously!

I'm not going to lie to you, this month has been the most boring month of them all. I've done absolutely nothing, my motivation for absolutely everything went down the drain and I only got drunk twice... I know, shocker. (ok maybe it was 3 times...)
For the majority of this month I've been housesitting for another family looking after their dog, 3 cats and 2 chickens, yeap eventful. I hated it, I hated sitting in a strangers house all day everyday not being able to leave because I had to look after the animals. My bad mood because of this rubbed off on everything I did and my motivation to blog just completely disappeared, so that explains my shitty posts/lack of posts this month. Soz.
I guess this whole summer my blogging game has not been on point. When I finished my exams I was DETERMINED that I was going to be blogging everyday, that I was going to be creating better content and be truly happy with my blog. HA what a lie. I've basically spent the whole summer lying on the sofa and getting fat- another thing which has basically made me feel like poop.
I've done a lot of thinking this month about my blog- what I want to share with the world and how I want to be portrayed. I post a lot of my personal life on the internet (e.g. this post) and if I want to be seen seriously in blogging I need to find that balance of what is and isn't okay to post on my blog to make it seem more "professional". I don't know it makes sense to me. But what do you guys think? Do you enjoy the more serious posts on fashion and beauty and all that or do you enjoy the more personal posts of what I go through in my life? Let me know! But in an attempt to get the split right I'm no longer going to be posting my "photo's of the month" on these posts. If you want to see what I get up to though, make sure to follow my instagram @clxelouise because that will always be a personal account for me! Shameless self promo.
Sorry for a wingey post but yeah this last month of summer has been shit and this little space on the internet is where I document it so :)
I'm hoping and praying that next month is going to be so much better since I'm moving to university, getting my first ever tattoo and getting a new piercing, ee I can't wait! Oh and I'm going to try and up my blogging game... emphasis on "try"...

It's no secret that I love to party (how many times have I started a post like this?). Even though at the time jager bombs, vodka cokes, spiced rum and goodness knows what else sounds like a great idea, the next day I'm always contemplating my existence when hit in the face with the hangover from hell. I've noticed that each time I have a hangover I seem to have the same thoughts, so today I thought I'd share them with you before you go and damage your liver even more than it is this bank holiday weekend!
I cannot believe this time next month I will be in university, like what? I'm pretty sure I'...
