So it's been a while..

I am very aware of my recent absence. I decided to delete my blog around September because I needed a break, even if that break was 3 months long. A complete break. No attachments, and that's what I got. I'm not sure if any of you are still around now, but I thought I would pop in and say a quick hello.

I decided to change my name from Emily's Beauty Thoughts to Written to You by Emily. I thought the new name suited my content a little better.

I can't promise anything about my updates on here. I don't know what will become of this blog in 2017, but I hope to experience the joy of blogging once again. I love it and I want to be active again. I am now in year 11, with many exams and school work ahead of me. I'm not sure if blogging will be a distraction or a release when it comes to revision, we shall have to wait and see.

I am open to suggestions for posts, so on. I want to know what you'd like to see on here. Maybe I might do a whole month of blogging in January or February, but my mind is bubbling up with ideas for posts.

I hope my return is welcome, and I am sorry for my lack of activity.

A Sucker for Sunsets

What? Is that another photography post I see, Emily? Well, yes I'm not feeling the beauty/fashion thing at the moment - and I rather write photography posts. Anyway, yesterday evening I went for a walk to go and watch the sunset and it was very pretty so here is what I saw..

I'm trying to get back in the swing of things on here, just give me a little time. Anyway, I hope your have a good day and I will see you in my next post

Sort of Artsy Pictures

Eeek! I have been away from this blog for a little too long so I thought I would post some sort of artsy pictures for a quick post. I went for a walk this morning with my friend and these were taken (and lots more, but I can only get hold of these right now!).

To give you a quick catch-up on where I've been, I went on a family holiday to France which was lovely - lots of fun was had. Then I went to a festival, Soul Survivor, and I honestly think it was one of the best experiences of my life. Anyway, that was a quick catch-up and I will be back to the usual posts soon, I promise!

6 Back to School Life Hacks

The first of my back to school series is here, some life hacks to help you through the school year.

1. Want to make some extra money from just browing the web?

It can be hard to make money whilst in school, but by using QMee you can get paid 5p for just clicking a website (I will link the website, to explain it a little better)

2. Searching for a particular word/phrase in a document or website?

You can use CTRL F (for windows) to get a certain word highlighted to help you find it.

3. Struggle with your alarm?

There are two ways I use to get around this- put your alarm the other side of your room, so you actually have to ge up to switch it off or you can use this great alarm app - Sleep Time (free), which records your sleep movements and plays an alarm when you're in your lightest sleep, so getting up isn't so hard..

4. Lost or forget your schedule?

You can set your timetable/schedule as your phone background so you can see your schedule by just unlocking your phone.

5. Headphones tangled?

Pick a spot half way down the wire and shake it (for at least 10 seconds) (this actually sort of works) 

6. Need to block a website to stop procrastination?

By going to keepmeout.com, you can block a website (facebook or youtube etc.) for however long you like.

What's your school life hack if you've got one?

I hope you enjoyed this quick little post, I promise more posts in this Back to School series..
