Hi guys kloe here
Some things this week have kind of shaped out what I was going to write about in my blog and thing is being who you want to be and not being like everyone else or being who people expect you to be & being judged constantly .
Honestly one thing that drives me crazy when I’m out shopping or something is the amount of people that look at me and look at other people and judge me/you when they don't even know who you are and your situation and not everyone is super confident like they seem confident but like me my confidence needs some improving but when people are judging they forget that and if you too feel judged know your not alone buddy.
I hate looking at people when I’m eating for the fact that I’m thinking what if I spill this or something like that because I think or know people would laugh and judge which Is something I’d like to overcome with a bit more confidence.
Being who you want to be is such a powerful sentence but I do feel that there is a certain way people have to be and act at certain ages and I feel like some people can't see past that. Like at 18 I feel people think 18 year olds should wear certain types of clothes and should be a tiny size but not everyone including me is size 8 and I’m all for supporting bigger sizes but in todays day and age people aren’t so supportive of that which needs to change.
Be who you want to be if that means bright hair or expressing your self in another way well i give you a big high five ✋ kloes lil corner is where I express part of me and I hope this blog will help someone trying to express them selves and I also hope this post sends the message that everyone is different and people need/should except that .
I hope this helps you , and that you can relate in some way .Comments below I'd live to know how you deal with other people's judgement

Hi guys kloe here ...
As i sit here in my Christmas socks yes i know were in February i decide it would be the perfect time to sit down and write this weeks blog about winter colds because you've guessed it i have a cold (blows my nose again ) .
Here's how i deal with winter colds ❄
Even after you look like rudolf after blowing your nose for like the hundredth time i will esure you that its definitely worth it once your germ free .
Soft tissues are a must no one including me wants to be blowing they're nose on what feels like sand paper.
Honey and lemon with boiling water is a must when you have a sore throat and all it feels like you've swollowed razor blades honey and lemon with the occasional half a paracetamol helps too .
I'm a great lover of honey and lemon and i think it does work i must thank my mum for making this when I was sick .
Flu tables help quicken up getting rid of your cold so i definitely advise you take them when you have a bad cold and read on them when is best to take them for you has some can make yiur tired and that would be dangerous if you were driving or using machinery (be careful readers ).
When your nose is so sore and hurts when you blow it put on lip balm after you've blown your nose and yes I do agree that at the time it feels pointless because your going to be blowing it again soon but its definitely work it .

I hope anyone with a winter colds feels better soon , do you have any remedies please comment them below .
Until next time happy reading
Hey guys kloe here
This week has been pretty crazy with starting my new job and thinking of what I should write in today's blog which I wanted to post earlier this week but I was stuck on what I was going to write todays blog post about so I thought I’d write part two of my epilepsy blog , read part one here ( I'd advise you to read part one before part two so you can make sense of it all )
Before we get into part two of my epilepsy blog I just want to say again thank you to my family & friends for always being there for me I wouldn’t be writing this blog let alone be the person I am today .
Here’s how’s my life’s changed since out growing epilepsy
Learning to drive
Learning to drive was such a huge thing for me because I never thought i would be able too because of my epilepsy but when it happened I was so excited but also nervous because I thought stressing about my test and everything that comes with learning to drive . At the back of my mind I thought what if I have a fit and all the past few months was all for nothing because I knew how close I was to my test i could taste the finish line , at one point I was so worried I could smell burnt toast ( when I had epilepsy before I’d have a fit i could smell burnt toast ) and also I had a few headaches but my AMAZING family reassured me that I would be fine and that I could do it . I had to not let the possibility of epilepsy coming back get in the way of learning to drive because it meant so much to me I wanted it to go well .
I know this isn’t something I have to do regularly now that I don’t have epilepsy but I wanted to put this bit in this blog post . I remember clearly at my last consultation feeling happy and sad all at once happy because I could have just said oh well I have epilepsy but I fought it and didn’t let it rule my life and sad because the doctors that helped meant so much to me and I can’t thank them enough for doing they’re best and helping me ( I know it’s they’re job but maybe it’s who I am but they felt like more than just people ) . I couldn’t believe how far I’d come in that moment I wanted to cry happy tears and to make it even more perfect I could reach the handle yes I did say handle ( because it was a kids ward the handles are high and I could finally reach them ) .
Getting a job
Getting a job felt like a big achievement and I recently got a job at primark and whilst on my shift my mind was thinking of random things and thought if I had epilepsy still I wouldn’t be here now most probably and made me Want fists pump the air because I couldn’t believe it and how far I’d come .
I could finally go to concerts with out closing one eye because of the flashing lights before could have made me have a fit . It was nice to go to a concert and watch it with both eyes and not worry about flashing lights etc . If I’m honest I did worry or at least think about what if I had a fit during the concert because I hadn’t been to a concert since coming off my medication which I was cautious about but I was also excited to see Charlie Puth and my family reassured me that id be fine which I was .
As much as I hated having epilepsy it made me the person I am and everyone has they’re journey and epilepsy was part of my journey .
I hope you guys have enjoyed todays blog , as of Tuesday I’ll be in Portugal so expect some sunny pictures in next week’s blog post .
Until next time happy reading
Hi guys kloe here...
As I sit here about to start writing my blog about the stresses we go through for job interview Selena Gomez's "Rise" comes on and it makes me think that all the worrying I did especially the days before my interviews , and how I dealt with the rejection was all worth it and no amount of worrying is needed you need to believe in yourself .
Well I was so nervous about my first interview as I didn't know what to expect and I asked a few of my friends , family and fellow bloggers if they had any tips for me and they really helped so if any of you guys have a job interview soon ask your friends and family as that really helped me . As silly as this may sound TRY and relax and if your like me and all you can think about is your interview then try and do something where your mind will be thinking of anything but your interview for example read a book, I found this took my mind off my interview .
Questions asked at your interview
Don't make the silly choice like me and look on google to see what questions you'll be asked at your interview because I knew once I'd hit the SEARCH button I shouldn't have done that because 1. you might not be asked those questions and 2. every interview is different and so is they job you are applying for , in theory it was a good idea looking but I would advise not to and its good not to know because once I looked I was thinking of what to say , I didn't want to sound rehearsed so I think its best not to think about what they'll ask you and you should take every question / interview as it comes .
Depending on your type of interview is to whether you'll go straight into your interview as my first interview at Topshop I had to design an outfit with a country club theme I remember panicking because I wasn't sure and I don't know a lot about fashion yet (I'm learning) so I winged it and I was kind of thrown because I thought I go straight into my interview , like this just breath and take every situation as it comes .
I was pretty much prepared for my interviews but I was too busy worrying about what I was going to wear and what the interviewer may ask that I forgot to do my research on the company as sometimes they do ask you about the company its good if you know a little bit so again I'd advise to do a bit research just in case .
What to wear / Make up ?
Hmm this was quite difficult for me because I've sent a lot of clothes to Portugal so I had to look for something smart with what I did have , its also depending what the job is for is too to what kind of outfit should go with . Make up wise I decided to go with something subtle so I used light colours as I didn't want a heavy looking make up and I think a more natural make up look is definitely the go to look for interviews .
Overanalysing / Rejection
This is something after the two interviews I went too I was constantly thinking about what I said and what I could of said . Waiting to hear back was the worst part because like me I started doubting my self could I really do this job things like that which didn't help my confidence much . Rejection was one of the things that for anyone is hard but the rejection makes you more wiser and as much as its hard at first it definitely helps . At my interview for Primark I was doubting myself because of my Topshop rejection and I just like my mum said sell your self because anyone can sound amazing on paper and that's what i did and I'm so happy to tell you guys I got the job yay and I have the training day this Saturday which I'm excited about I'll keep you all updated on how it goes.

I hope I haven't bored you half to death with my interview blues blog post ? , i'd love to know if this blog helps you at your job interview ?
Until next time happy reading
