Mid- April Update… |High Street Spy|

25 Apr

Hello beauties,

Yes, it is that time again where I scroll through my phone and give you a cheeky insight into what I’ve been up to (or not up to) this month.

mid april update

Revision, revision and more revision…

B.O.R.I.N.G. You all know what it is, but that’s all I’ve been doing this half term and I can not wait until my GCSEs are over and I can have the longest summer ever! If you do want to read about how I’ve been revising, I wrote about it here. After I’ve finished writing this post I am off to revise science because it is officially my worst subject, damn my scientific dreams are crushed. 😉

I’ve been getting all Blogilates…

A while back I discovered the fantastical world which is Blogilates when I was looking for some easy exercises I could do at home to slim my legs a bit, and I am in love with it, not only has the way too perky Casey has the amazing website, (www.blogilates.com) she also has an app and a YouTube channel. All of these have super easy you follow YouTube videos for every bit of your body you can think of, but also diet plans and recipes to coincide with every exercise too and also a workout calendar if you really want to stick to it. I have been slacking this week due to the realization of how much revision I had to do, but last week I was following the Perfect legs workout everyday, and surprisingly I do it the whole way through. Promise. For some reason I find her really motivating, and you don’t even have to leave your house and get sweating in front of people, it feels like she’s giving you her own private class which I love. I really recommend giving this a go, as there is literally a workout for everyone!

Happy Birthday Lauren & Lauren…

Last week it was fellow bloggers and friends in the real world Lauren and Lauren’s 16th Birthdays. Firstly it was Lauren W’s birthday, where we ate way too much food and I watched Frozen for the first time which is now a new favourite of mine. I got both Lauren’s giant cards I picked up from Asda that week but I got Lauren W a Jack Wills bag which my mum picked out. (Good choice mum.) Then on the Friday of that week we all popped round to Lauren A’s and for once I was the first one there! The idea for her present came from when I was going through the thousands of pictures on my phone and realised the majority of which were of Lauren or Lauren and I, I would say a good 70% of them, so I decided to make her a scrapbook which I was pretty pleased with. It took me all week and my kitchen table being covered it pink glitter to make it, oh and all my brother’s colour ink from his printer! I also gave her a Ted Baker body set because she smells and a tampon. (Long Story.)

I tried out my prom hair & make-up…

Prom is coming up extremely soon, and I have to say I am excited, I only have a few bits and bobs to pick up and I am ready to go! I know a few of you have seen my hair on my personal Twitter but if you haven’t, sorry you can’t see it. 😉 This is because I am going to post a Get Ready with Me Prom edition very soon, so you will just have to wait until then! I am doing my make-up myself and my super clever hairdresser/ beauty therapist mother is doing my hair, the other day I literally just gave her a picture of how I wanted my hair and she did it literally identically! The hair is copied from a very well known YouTuber so there’s a hint for you.

I went all mermaid…

I’m normally pretty boring but due to a lot of procrastination I ended up painting my nails like this, using a Fearne metallic polish in green and a pushing a gold glitter from the tips upwards. I might do a proper tutorial of these but for now here’s just another teaser for you.


So far this month has been beyond boring, due to the exams once again! I hope you find you have a lovely Easter, tucking into chocolate eggs like me. My prom look will be up very soon, as I know a lot of you have asked me about it all.

See you soon,

Maisie x
