Organising

Image
Today I have some help writing this post from my friend, Lottie. We are launching a series all about organising! This post is all about keeping track of homework and handing it in on time.

The first method is the cork-board...
Set up a cork board with three different columns. I use post it notes to label each section but any piece of paper would do. You could also use a chalkboard or whiteboard. I recommend having three columns...
- Homework that you have just been set and you still need to do! Update this every time you come back from school.
-Homework that is in progress. If you have a project for example that you have started but haven't finished, write it in this section.
- And homework that you have done. By using this section it helps you to have a sense of achievement. Once you have handed in the homework you can remove it from the column.
This is the board that I use...


The other method is to use a planner or diary and some coloured pens...

Use a planner to write down ALL …

Life hacks

(advice column)

So today is Tuesday - advice column! I thought I'd give you a few life hacks to help you out. I have now set up a pinterest account. Just search Sophie Stephens! I have pinned many a life hack on there  - some of which will feature in my blog. I haven't posted many myself but I'm getting there!!!

These life hacks are a tad random I'm afraid. But I've tried to find ones that will really help - let me know if you've never heard any of these and if they help you out at all.x

1. Life hack number one is something I think helps. I think it will work for some and not for others unfortunately but it's worth a try! If you have the hiccups, inhale through your mouth then swallow two to three times without taking a breath. The breathe out of you nose slowly.

2. If you have a sore throat try eating some cucumber. Apparently it cools down your throat but I've never actually tried it - let me know if it works!!

3. If you don't like the core of str…

Revision

(Advice column)

So I posted a schedule then din't stick to it. I'm sorry but I've been so busy with revising it's unbelievable. I started this blog as something to do - to fill the time. As a kind of hobby I suppose but there just isn't anytime. But my exams are soon so after that I should be running at full speed!!
So on the topic of revising, I thought I might give you some tips on it.

1. First of all, relax! Trust that you have already learnt everything you need to learn and all you are doing is revisiting that information. If you have a plan - whether that be in your head or on paper - you will be alright. You just need to settle down into a nice routine and sought everything out in time for the exam. Which leads me into my next point...

2. Make sure you know when your exams are so you can prepare yourself in advance. I think it is best that you do your revision over a period of time - 2-3 weeks is good -  rather than cramming it into the last couple of days. T…

Beauty

Image
This post is probably really cliche. It is also probably only going to by a few people but to those people - read it. Take it in. Realise that hundreds of bloggers write about this thing because it is an issue that needs addressing - beauty. What is beauty? I am both amazed and horrified that one small word can change so much. But really? Everything is beautiful and special in its own way and no-one has the right to change that. Things are the way they are and that's just the way it is. So stuff people who judge you and pressure you into being someone else because you are you and you look like you and you should be you. Be your own kind of beautiful. Beauty isn't about how you look on the outside - it's how you really are on the inside. Love one another and treat others how you would expect to be treated. Find something nice to say to people and it will brighten up their whole day because you made them feel special. Unique. And that's how you should view yourself. Yes,…
