Fabulous frocks

 

There is something very special about a dress. No other piece of clothing 

The Party Dress!

 is   as beautiful as dress or as elegant as dress not even a skirt. As you probably already know there are many different types of dresses. There are three main ones:

  • The party dress 
     
  • The little black dress

 

 

And, of course

 

 

  • The wedding dress

 

The LBD!

   It has been more than 80 years since coco Chanel invented the little black dress, but every woman still has one in her wardrobe. Its decades since women discovered trousers and separates, but every woman dreams of wearing a glorious, glamorous gown at least once, whether it’s on a Hollywood red carpet, or on her wedding day.

 

 

 

As I was reading through the book fabulous frocks, I came across a really nice saying:

 

     “ the dress must not hang on the body but follow its lines. It must  accompany  its wearer and when a woman  smiles the dress  must  smile with her”

This saying was said by Vionnet, a very famous dress designer.

 

The ultimate must surely be … The Wedding Dress!

HOW MAKE A TREE SWING

 

WHAT YOU NEED

  •  A large tree with a thick overhanging branch.
  •  A tyre-about the size of a car tyre.
  • Rope –about 1.3cm thick and long enough to reach the branch plus3m.
  •  Twine
  •  An eyebolt long enough to go through the branch, with a washer and locknut
  •  A quick link
  •  A lighter

 

WHAT YOU DO

  1. Find an appropriate tree. It needs to be a large tree with a sturdy  overhanging branch that can hold you when you swing . It needs to be 9ft high. A hardwood tree would be ideal.
  2. Tie one end of the rope with a bowline knot or attach an eyebolt with a washer and locknut. Then tie the rope to the eyebolt with a bowline knot. Then attach the quick link to the eyebolt.
  3. Drill a few holes in the tyre to let rain water get out.
  4. Tie the rope to the tyre  with a bowline knot.
  5. Climb on the tyre and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):):):):):):):):):):)

Obviously, get an adult to supervise … etc etc

 

Check out the tree below,  this is where  Thomas and I are hopefully  going to build our tyre swing – what do you all think?

Animals

DOGS

As anyone who has ever seen crufts on TV will know, every breed of dog falls into a different group depending on their original job description or, in other words, what they were originally bred to do.  Anyone searching for their perfect dog should start by  looking at the breeds in these following groups to find their ideal dog:

  • Working dogs
  •  Patrol dogs
  •  Gundog
  •  Hounds
  •  Terriers
  •  Toy dog
  •  Utility Dog

 

RABBITS

Rabbits are small mammals in the family leporidae of the order lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world. There are 8 different genera in the family classified as rabbits, including the European rabbit, cottontail rabbit and the amami rabbit.

There are many other species of rabbit, and these, along with pikas and hares, make up the order lagomorpha.

The male is called a buck and the female is called a doe; a young rabbit is a kitten or a kit.

HORSES

Generous, willing and patient, horses have served people well for thousands of years. We have ridden them, driven them, use them to pull heavy loads and to plough our fields. There are many different types of horses:

  • Heavy horses
  • Carriage horses
  •  Cob horses
  •  Working hunting horses
  •  Polo horses
  •  Show horses

DOLPHINS

Dolphins are marine mammals that are closely related to whales and porpoises. There are almost forty species of dolphin in 17 genera. They vary in size from 1.2m and 40kg, up to 9.5m and tons. They are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves, and are carnivores, mostly eating  fish and squid. The family Delphinidae is the largest in the cetaceans order, and evolved relatively recently, about 10 million years ago, during the Miocene. Dolphins are among the most intelligent animals, and their often friendly appearance and seemingly playful attitude have made them popular in human culture. They love in and out of the water and have races with each other in the water.

SHARKS

Shark attack!!!!

Great White:

Torpedo shaped with a pointy snout, the great white is the only shark that can hold it’s head up out of the water. It can seek prey at the water’s surface and then attack from underneath, swimming at speeds up to 6km per hour; 8.5 times faster than an Olympic swimmer.

Relaxation – Create your ideal space

How to turn your bedroom into a sanctuary

Your bedroom should reflect your personality and say exactly who you are.  It is the one place where you must feel safe and relaxed. You should just come home from school, leave your worries at the door and relax in your bedroom.

Here is how to turn your bedroom into a safe, soothing sanctuary:

First of all, clear out all the clutter. Your  bedroom should be calming to the mind – and to the eye!

Try to avoid working in your bedroom, maybe homework could be done in the kitchen or studyroom. If this is impossible, place your desk or workspace behind a screen so that you are not reminded of work while you are in bed.   Most importantly,  keep bookshelves out of your bedroom and ornaments to a minimum.

Keep it funky but tidy, de-cluttering is key!

X-box Games

SAINTS ROW

THIS GAME is one of three, and it is a follow up to Saints Row two. It has great music and you can make your own cars, but this game is over 18s so you would have to careful with the graphic images. I played this game in my cousin’s house and it was quite hard to get used to playing this game, the levels were a little hard like every game.

 

 

CALL OF DUTY MW3

YOU ARE playing as two people Frost and Yuri. Frost is with The Task Force and Yuri is with The SAS and it is the best selling game in XBOX History.

Dating and teen relationships

What can we really learn from dating in the past?

What can we really  learn from dating in the past? Or can we learn anything at all? If you are thinking no, then you are absolutely wrong!!

While I was reading Jane Austen’s guide to dating it struck e me, just when I was reading the rules about dating that we still have the same rules about dating that they did in the past:

 a)                   If you like someone, make it clear to them.

b)                    Don’t put your feelings on public display.

c)                     Don’t play games or lead people on.

d)                     Have faith in your own instincts.

e)                     Don’t settle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
