Daily Challenges – Halloween Challenges – Please stop associating black cats as witches cats!

What annoys me is that people have this idea that black cats either bring you bad luck or they are witches cats. Firstly it’s an urban historical myth back in the day when people are tryed for being witches and lead to think black cats bring bad luck. Today’s society people still believe that black cats bring bad luck or some lame excuse to either not adopt or want to kill them etc. 

They actually done nothing wrong firstly I have two gorgeous black cats with a hint of brown in; they have not once giving me a bad day or bad luck, they are just gorgeous little creatures been rescued from adoption rescue centre and if it wasn’t for them I would still be in a dark place by now. 

They are just the same as every other cats out there. People just need to stop listening to the old wives tales and get over it all to perfectly honest with you; in my research that I did the other day into black cats, British people actually think that black cats give them good luck and yet people think otherwise. 

Just stop listening to the historical myths people have been talking about black cats because clearly we would still have witches to this day we wouldn’t we. Just grow a pair because black cats are the best things ever; in my opinion everyone just scared that they can’t see them in the dark yeah and what’s the matter with that, their personalities are more important than anything else. My ones spook me out when I don’t shut the bedroom door; I don’t hear them come in, and they just sit there quietly or just be a ninja and creep up behind you. 

That’s just them to be honest they are my ninja cat’s at the end of the day no matter what they do. They are just gorgeous black cats and just need to remember to turn on the lights before you trip over them trust me the amount of times they’ve tried to do that or scare the crap out you because they are silent. They give you that look of what? What did I do? I didn’t do nothing? When you know perfectly well they did but their cute adorable face changes everything. 

So the conspiracy theory about black cats aren’t true in my opinion whatever the culture is means to them about the black cats.

Daily Challenges – Halloween Challenges – What’s the most frightening experience you ever had?

The most frightening experience that I’ve ever had has to be delivering newspapers in October onwards when I was a teen because I hated the dark doesn’t matter if it’s around Halloween or not. Delivering newspapers aren’t the great job to say the least along with not getting paid enough when you delivering more than 100 houses around your area. 

There’s a few houses I hated the most and still do to this day where you get houses sit side by side and their front doors facing each other. I always think I’m going to get murdered, raped, or kidnapped especially when it’s dark because I never knew who was behind that door when I posted the newspapers through. 

The other two houses where they have very long driveways without lights on to see where you’re going until you reach the property; that always scares me because anyone could jump out at no matter if they know me or not, I have always had that at the back of my mind because of it. 

Last but not least my road when it becomes dark and I’m either walking home from work or somewhere else the cars that parked along the sides making it more condensed and by the time you reach the first lamppost I’m home. I’ve only have two lampposts in my road. Do I use my phone torch when I go down my road? No not really I just hope for the best that I’ll get away with it. 

Daily Challenges – Halloween Challenges – Why do you love or hate Halloween?

To be perfectly honest with you Halloween hasn’t really bothered me in the slightest;   I don’t understand it because I haven’t really much celebrated it, I’ll explain the reason why in another blog and I have a value good reason for it. It’s only when I’ve hit my late teens early adult hood that college friends and when I was working in a job that celebrated it.

I was always put on at the Halloween nights so I had to dress up as something but I wasn’t perfectly good at as I never knew how to do it. I felt like a spare part to be honest haha a spare part. 

At the end of the day people can celebrate it if they want to or not it’s up too them at the end of the day. I’m not going to stop them by all means they can have fun as much as the next person. 

I do like to create scary stories and what not because it’s me and being creative. I am currently working on one for Halloween for my other blog; going to take me awhile to do but I’ve got it started for now, I’ll let you know when it’s up and running so you can check it out.

Daily Announcements – Short Stories – Tom Kennedy Series

Love stories. Short stories. On followthefootprintsinthepages.wordpress.com you will find short stories series of Tom Kennedy. Many years ago throughout college I had this series and another series based on one another; never shared it with anyone else other than my sister, and cousin mainly my sister. Over the years I’ve  been rewriting and rewriting them; I had decided to create series of Tom Kennedy to begin with to see how it is goes, and then start the other series from other stories that I have created back then. 

Tom Kennedy is based on a child who has special needs, has a special ancient ball inside of him that nobody knew until one day an evil presence had be brought into the world by his grandfather. Who still didn’t learn the last time what happened; yet there was more to meet the eye where the evil presence wasn’t just after the ancient ball, he wanted to dominate the world but the only people that stood in his way were the Kennedy family. However as Tom was growing up he was managing his special needs, knowing that he had it and he had lots of things waiting for him that he didn’t know that it was waiting for him.

“Tell me it’s not true Stanley…say it’s just a story” whimpered Daisy as Stanley crawled her face resting his head on hers. “I promise you we will find him when this is all over okay” he whispered. 

“So did you hear the story of the Kennedys family life is in danger once more; as it’s like each other as two new pins, either one must die on the self same day and yet one was kept in the strong family who had more power than anyone else. Yet one was given away. Yet have you heard how one of the Kennedys died not knowing that in years to come in distance future one evil person shared one name taking on the legacy. Until they died. When a mother once cried “my own dear son lie slain” did you never hear of a mother so cruel her own father placed a curse stone in place of her heart? What brought her on to bring up her son like he was a peace of dirt. Come judge for yourselves how they all played these parts” exclaimed the chief

Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – How do you know what’s hurting your blog?

How do you know what’s hurting your blog? Basically you don’t because people say this is hurting your blog or this is hurting this and so on. Actually it can be anything lots of things can hurt your blog but at the end of the day the things that they tell you that are hurting their blog actually works for yours. 

It’s basically a trial and error people are just giving you advice at the end of the day but you won’t know what’s hurting yours until you learn yourself what it is. It’s good advice to watch out for but you also got to learn yourself what works and what doesn’t work at the end of the day. 

I basically learn all the time on how to improve, where it goes wrong, how to change it, how to conceal and improve your content. It’s just basically challenging yourself to do new things all the time. I like to challenge myself all the time learn how to do things in away that’s better for me and for my readers.

The sense of pride takes place within yourself than through other people. People can comment negativity and positive; all you got to do is throw away the negativity and keep the positive is the best thing to do, positive helps build your pride and confidence knowing that you’re blog content is worth while. 

All I can say is keep working on it. Take the advice of other people that give out where they say what’s hurting your blog but it’s done to you to know what’s what. So don’t give up or let people say anything different.

Everyday Post – Navigating Around – Trying to find a place that I didn’t even know existed

(27.9.18) Today’s  explore that I did was due to an appointment that I had to attend too; being me for living in the same town for all my life things have changed over the years, where certain things were there and now not there anymore or things have existed and didn’t know they did until now. 

I pretty much did that to be honest because I knew roughly what area where this community centre was but didn’t know for sure where. I brought it up on to my maps on my phone giving me a few options on how to get there either by foot or by bus. I thought I’ll take an easy option of taking the bus a few days ago so that I knew I was there in plenty of time and to look for it. 

When today came I was pretty much barely got home this morning I was in and straight out again which pretty much confused the kittens seeing me arrive then see me leave again. Started my sat nav on my phone got to one of the buses that it told me to go to and get one of the buses that would arrive there. Got a single to where I needed to go but it only took me 14 minutes to get where I needed to go; still following the sat nav, found the sign saying the community centre but wasn’t really signed very well where it was perfectly honest with you. 

I wasn’t too sure if that was it or not but it was after I went on a bit further because stupid sat nav said it was on my left but it was on my right when I arrived. It was now on my left which was really stupid. So I adventured on to find this place following the path in the distance I could see silver mini buses for community and I knew that I had found the place that I needed to be.

After I had finished my appointment an hour and half later which felt like it but not too sure what time I arrived but it felt like a long time. I knew where I was and how to get home as I use to walk to a sports park from my area via that way so I knew pretty much where I was and over all steps I did today was 6,710 steps. Don’t normally do that much a day. 

Star Light Categories – Teen Lifestyle – When you hit that hormone stage!

Blah I remember that day when my hormones kicked in I felt like I was dying. Yet it got me out of school most of the time because my excuse was I’ve got a tummy ache and I feel sick. They literally took it and I just went home had a paracetamol and fell asleep to sleep of the dreaded period pains. 

That’s the only time I used to get out of school when it came about because I genuinely hated school; I would try anything to get out of class and school because of it, I don’t know what they do now these days but I just use it against them and I would never complain or anything. 

The worst part was the spots/zits but people say don’t pop them but no one genuinely don’t tell you why not until you realise you do pop it and leaves you scared well unless you’re me and get anxious by picking at it. Generally people use zit products or toothpaste but I never really see the point of that to be honest with you because a) it never seemed to work b) I didn’t have the patience to keep doing everyday. 

Boys be boys will get silly and will shoot up nice and tall. Their voices break due to hormones so girlies don’t think they don’t get much they will also break out in spots too. Yet they don’t understand the pain of period pains and what not. Unless you kick them where it hurts so they can get some sort of an idea but I recommend not to do this unless you’re under attack be a stranger.

Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – 2 blogs for each blog! Say whaaat?

I’ve become recently writing for two blogs two is my max on each one if I can; you must be thinking why two blogs when you barely have time to concentrate with this one, I know but since having kittens is giving me great opportunities to write stories, poetry, comedy and many more. 

To which I love writing stories so writing stories and etc for the other blog has made a hit for me because on here it didn’t really take off how I really liked of done to be honest with you. Since I made Follow the footprints on the pages sharing my sisters Comedy Kittens on there and on here; comparing them on each other I’ve noticed that my viewers on that blog likes that sort of thing more than on here. 

It’s alright I’m not going to stop this one; I’m still continuing to work on this one but having other things, like keeping my regular Star Light Categories, Hauls, Everyday Online Diary Entries, and the others. So don’t panick Mr. Mannering! Stories and poetry are quite hard to do and take time to write but bouncing between the two I can literally make it work by helping myself to improve one way or another. 

It’s like teaching myself all over again. Trying to improve how to do things better and differently. It’s not a bad thing to be honest it’s the only way to learn at the end of the day because you may end up in a rut and do the same thing over and over again. It’s good to have fresh new eyes at the best of times just sit back and rest for awhile. To be able clear you’re mind and collect new thoughts. 

 

 

Daily Comedy Kittens – Kittens Sundays – Adorable but mischievous

For now I’m going to leave you this thought. Until the next time they do somethings that are very comical to write about for the bubbas; no matter how much of a handful they are when they want to be, I still love them more than anything in the world and we all do at the end of the day. They just keep us all going one way or another no matter how stressed, upset, laughter and etc. They are there to pick us up no matter what and visa. Probably missed a word out there but my head literally hurts and can’t think straight. 

The pair can be so adorable at the best of times but when they can be a handful they can be a handful; you pretty much can’t do anything without watching them continually, even though you have loads of things to do but you just have to be there on guard at all times. 

Bubba 1 is pretty much chilled out kitten to be honest because you know when you’re in trouble or you upset her; she’ll let you know where meow at you if you done something different or you don’t give her a treat as same as her sister. Trust me she did that to my sister earlier for pay back she ignored her and got into a box that my sister was trying to throw away thinking that bubba 1 wasn’t to bothered about the box. 

Until this evening (23.9.18) where she just got into the box that wasn’t big enough for her but she still managed to get into; she wouldn’t even budge or seem to be bothered that my sister picked her up in the box, and put her at the end of her bed. Bubba 1 still hasn’t budged a bit. Trust me you really don’t want to be on the wrong side of her at the best of times. 

Yet she can be up to other mischievous things when she gets a chance but not as bad as her sister. However she’s become very relaxed and affectionate towards me, my sister and one of my parents since she’s been here. Still on her terms though but the fact that you get use to her following you about; nicking your socks, nicking your shoes and creep up on you to give you a heart failure because you genuinely don’t know that she’s there until you see something black move. 

Bubba 2 is starting to settle a bit more but can still cause mayhem at the best of times because she is so adventurous, brave and full of laughter like nobody knows. Trust me she is adorable when she does the whole toothless face from how to train your dragon. Just to win you over if she’s done something that she shouldn’t be doing. 

She even nearly tried to trip one of my parents up on the stairs this morning (23.9.18) as she ran through their legs to beat them to the bottom of the stairs. I pretty much try and wait until they get up the stairs or downstairs before me but sometimes it doesn’t always work. I always say “move it, move it move it,” firstly I hate stairs in general secondly I hate carrying things up and down the stairs, thirdly they run full pelt up and down the stairs along with balancing act on the banister on which I hate the most in the first place. 

However bubba 2 can be really cute and adorable where she loves the whole cuddles, strokes and etc because she’s just loveable along side with she will sleep next to you to keep you safe and you keep her safe. She knows when your upset because she will keep you company no matter what. 

Pretty much is it for now of their comedy at the moment. Will write more at a later date when they’ve done something else funny.

Autumn Hauls – Superdrug Haul – September 18 mini haul on a tight budget

When you’re on a tight budget of £25 which means you have to prioritise which certain things you really need at the time. There’s me when I need a lot of things to get but on a really tight budget because the wage you have isn’t enough to cover you for a month nor the things you need. If you’re going back to uni (university) soon or right now this might help you out; if you’re not but here to find out what I got, along with how I budget for it that’s also great too. 

Being a typical person as it was raining at the time I went to go and get these items I was pretty much not in the mood of walking 45 minutes in the rain. I can tell you that now because my hair was already wavy and frizzy before I left.  

I wanted to try ultra face base primer by Revolution because E.L.F primers are good but I just find that they run out quite quickly and enough product inside. I do have to say from just walking around my house to the car and from the car to somewhere when it’s been raining my make up hasn’t run off my face nor when I’ve had been getting really hot and sweaty or my make up has literally coming off. This product has been really great so far. I’ve only used it once but I personally feel like it’s good thing to have. Not saying E.L.F primers are bad or anything I do prefer to have my make up staying on my face. 

Revolution primer cost me £5.00 and I brought 2 of them because I wasn’t so sure how long it was going to last or how long I will need to wait to get another one so my best bet was to get two. All together for both at £5.00 each came to £10.00. 

Revolution Concealer and define C5 which is a Rose sort of colour. I thought I’ll give this ago as I asked my sisters advice of what’s a better concealer than Collection Concealer which costs £4.19 something like that. I was running out of Concealer at the time; I tend to find that I was replacing Collection Concealer a lot more than anything as it was pretty much hardly anything in it I found, so my sister recommended me this one by revolution as she uses it and she had told me that she found it quite easy to use and it seems to last longer than she has used others in the past. By the way my sister also said that the primer that I just talked about is pretty good too.  My sister works in a make up store so she pretty good at knowing her stuff.  

Again I just liked the feel of revolution and the amount that covers my face than collection does; I have been with collection for a number of years now, I do find mixing it up and trying knew things really good because you never know what’s actually good for you and get the make up that you in away you want it to be. I prefer to get the cheapest first to see how it goes; if it works out better than I think then I may consider getting the next one that costs a bit more than the one I’ve got at the moment in which is okay. 

Revolution Concealer and define for a small one cost me £4.00 it’s pretty neat little thing where you can even put it into your small hang bag on your night out or your weekend away too.  

Imperial Leather bubble bath has to be one of my favourite brands when I need bubble bath but like when I have the money and on offer at the time. I do have one current favourite which is marshmallow bubble bath; just the smell of marshmallows in the bath is so nice and scented, especially when it comes to  this time of year when you just need some chilling out and having relaxing bath with the warmth of the bath. 

Currently Imperial Leather has brought out a limited addition of cosmic unicorn. I thought it be quite cool and intriguing what it would be like because to me it doesn’t smell like anything to me but it could smell really nice. Yet I wouldn’t know without trying so I thought I’ll give it ago to see and find out. 

Both were on a deal for any 2 for £2 on the whole imperial leather bubble bath stuff. So I decided to choose these two because one is unique and different the other one is just my favourite at the end of the day. 

Please remember that I am not being sponsored by Superdrug or any of the brands I’m just sharing my interest, what I like and what’s the best things to try out that’s different.
