If you know nothing about the HUGELY TRENDING child-star turned twerker Miley Cyrus, I'm sorry to say, but you have been living under a rock...

Plenty of people have more than enough to say about her, a lot positive, mostly negative, I just want to say, that out of the blue I have been OBSESSED with her, and I really don't know why?

I grew up loving Miley from the start. Watching the ever famous Hannah Montana TV series on the Disney Channel, listening to her music, going to see the Hannah Montana Movie in the cinemas. (Okay, I have just realised that I have always been pretty obsessed...)

I just can't get enough Miley!! I read interviews, I read articles about her, I read her tweets, I listen to her music (I think I know every word to We Can't Stop by now,) I even have pictures of her on my wall, I don't know what's happening to me...

From reading stalking her Twitter, I have found out that she is quite a Barb (The name of Nicki Minaj's fanbase) as am I, and hope that herself and Nicki will collaborate in the very near future!!

There's not really much meaning to this blog, just thought I should share my recent Miley obsession to the world. I know obsessing over celebrity culture can be time better spent, but to be quite frank, I don't care.

I would love to know if anyone has their celebrity obsessions or crushes, or what you think on the matter, if someone is actually reading this!! Also, the We Can't Stop video is below!

Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings!! :)

Over the last year and a half, I have been wanting to change my health and fitness regime, and overall my personal appearance. And to be as least modest as I can be, I have. Since January 2012, I have lost my weight lose goal of 2 stone.

Admittedly I have been slacking since I have had my GCSE exams and have lost the motivation to get exercising, and put on those sneaky extra pounds (I wont tell anyone if you don't!) But today, out of nowhere (My sister harassing me for this months gym money) I have found my lost motivation. I am back in the mind-frame of watching what I eat and drink, and what I physically do.

Before anyone makes the presumption that going on a "diet" can be more bad than good, like I have stated, I have undergone this over a long period of time and taken stages in my "diet" slowly and progressing to the next step when I, personally, feel ready to do so.

In January 2012, I was having to go into larger clothing sizes, and was fast approaching the stone of weight that I DID NOT want to be. So I did something about it! For the first 4 or 5 months, all I did was change my diet. I changed what I ate for healthier options, cut down on how much I ate and limiting stacks to a minimum. But the way I done it was I still ate what I enjoyed! I still ate chips, I still ate carbs and dairy. And in that way I didn't get bored of my diet, and I started enjoying my change of diet better than my diet before. I started a food diary, and calculated that I had minimized my average daily calorie intake by around 1000 calories (I seriously ate over the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) and very high calorie foods).


Me before I started my "diet" and me now (I hope someone can see at lease a slight change...)

I then started fitness classes with the high motivation of my close family and friends, but mostly my sister Emma. We truly motivated each other to work hard and get what we wanted to achieve, and I truly appreciate what she done to keep me going! As well as the help from my other sister Donna, my niece Chloe and my friends who exercised with me)

After a while I truly started to enjoy exercising! (BIG SURPRISE!!!) In regards to the fitness classes, I started with low intensity classes like Aqua-Aerobics and worked my way up to Aero-Biking/Spin Classes, Circuit Training and a brief encounter with Kettle-Bells and more.

I will admit that since my GCSE exams, I have lost motivation and become a utter lazy slob! My exams came first, and once they ended I vowed to get back to the regime, but I didn't... My diet has slipped a little as I am now off school and am not moving as much as I should. BUT this is changing TODAY! I haven't eaten any high-calorie snacks and have booked a badminton court with my niece Chloe for later today. I have found the motivation that I thought I had lost, and WILL get back on track!

A "diet" is different for everyone, and everyone finds their own unique way to deal with one. Too me I haven't undergone a diet, but a change of lifestyle that was drastically needed! Like I said, I wanted to loose 2 stone in weight by the time my Year 11 Prom, and I did that! I'm still not happy in how I look or feel, but now my goal is to get my body into what I want it to be.

I'm sorry if this blog entry was a bit long and I rambled on a bit, But I feel as though I needed to post something like this to get me back into my health and fitness mind-frame! 

Thanks to anyone who lovingly taken time out of their day to read this!:)

So a couple of weeks ago was my end of Year 11 Prom, I've been pretty busy since then and this is the only chance I've had to post. (Not the best beginning of a blog, oops...)

Me and my friends before we left :)

It was an amazing evening, it exceeded my expectations so much, it was nothing like I was expected and enjoyed myself so much more than I though that I would.

The place was decorated beautifully! It was held at the Heritage Park Hotel in the Rhondda, a ten minute drive away from my house. (That was a big plus for me).

The tables (Equipped with party poppers and disposable cameras.)

Our room! 

Everyone looked amazing and so sophisticated and mature in there suits and ball gowns.

Everyone enjoyed the night (as far as I am aware of), and it set a positive atmosphere from the start, and throughout the whole night. The DJ got everyone up on to the dance floor, playing the classing 'kids party songs' and 'Butlins anthems' like The Macarena and The Cha Cha Slide. (Well it got me up anyway and I had a blast!) 

We even had a CANDY CART! Full of sweets and chocolate!! Mmm:)

I truly appreciate my best friend Hannah and her mother, as they organised the true majority of the whole event. They organised everything perfectly, and the fact that everyone enjoyed was a major plus for them. 

Me and my friends had to thank them with a bouquet of flowers each, it was the least we could do!

And on top of that, she even won Prom Queen.

Here are a selected few of my favourite pictures from the night.

Me and my lovely mother, on the left. And me and one of my best
 friends Paige, on the right.

Me and another one of my best friends - Kate.

 Me and my best friend the PROM QUEEN - Hannah.

Me and another one of my best friends - Mollie.

Overall, I had a truly thrilling experience, and will never forget it! :)
