Top Ten Enemies To Lovers Books

Hey Girls!

So I am sure all of you your like to read Y/A books have all read the classics or at least heard of Fault in our stars, to all the boys I loved before, love Simon, we were liars etc I not saying those are bad books they are amazing but there are so many other great reads that just aren’t talked about that much. So actually my favourite book genre is actually Y/A romance but Today I decided to share my favourite enemies to lover to be specific, as I love to read if you want to find what books I am reading at the moment or what I have read I have my goodreads account linked below. I know it’s hard to pick just 10 but I figured I’d talk about some of my faves. 

I hope you’ll enjoy reading my top ten favourite enemies to lover books . I’m also super excited to hear your books recommendations, since I’m always looking for new books to read. What is your favorite book at the moment?

The relationships in these books always start off with a bit of hate stewing between the main characters.

This initial hate often leads to great banter between characters as the sparks inevitably fly and as those feelings begin to turn from hate to love.

The saying is that there is a thin line between love and hate, and that couldn’t be more true when it comes to romance books in this popular trope.

I’m partial to the romance novels where there is true animosity between the main characters due to a misunderstanding or an incident that occurred when they first met, setting their relationship off on the wrong foot.

It’s also fun to read enemies to lovers books that are based more on a healthy dose of competition rather an all out hate stirring up the relationship.

If you love enemies to lovers books, you may also be a fan of friends to lovers books. I know I am!


There will be some SPOILERS !’!!!!!!!!!!

10. Meet Me There

I loved this story with Ashlyn and Luke. So sweet. They are rival pranksters but when Luke’s mom dies everything changes for him. No one knows that it happened and the only thing keeping him with a smile is the pranks between him and Ashlyn. Until one day he breaks down in a dark room and she walks in. She doesn’t know it’s him because the lights are out in the room. And in the moment Luke Gave himself an accent so she wouldn’t recognize him. Talking to someone about what he was going through it felt so good. Soon it got out of control as he was falling for her and she was falling for him. So he had to stop the charade. Could she still like him if she found out the truth or think he was lying the whole time for a prank? Great story

9. All The Things We Were

The third book in the River Valley series is focused around Michelle, the not so nice girl from previous books. I hated Michelle in the last book, like seriously thought she was a cold hearted bitch. 
However appearances aren’t everything, this story allowed us to peek inside her not so perfect world. This was the ultimate redemption story. While Michelle is seemingly perfect, we quickly learn that’s not case, she is very insecure and has her own family dramas going on. Then her father cuts her off, and forces her to get a job. Michelle obviously thinks this is the end of the world, but enter Rainier. This is where things get interesting. These two could not be anymore different but somehow they find each other drawn to each other. Can two people so vastly different fall in love?

8. Meet Me at Midnight

Sidney and Asher should have clicked. Two star swimmers forced to spend their summers on a lake together sounds like the perfect match. But it’s the same every year–in between cookouts and boat rides and family-imposed bonfires, Sidney and Asher spend the dog days of summer finding the ultimate ways to prank each other. And now, after their senior year, they’re determined to make it the most epic summer yet. 

Their truce should make things simpler, but six years of tormenting one another isn’t so easy to ignore. Kind of like the undeniable attraction growing between them.

7. Making Friends With Alice Dyson

This one is like a very very Soft™ “enemies”…more like Alice is this Straight As perfect student and Teddy just ANNOYS HER by breathing wrong. And they do a spontaneous dance off in the street which goes a bit viral and she’s scared it’s ruining her image of being sensible. While Teddy is over here being a huge loveable dork. 

This one is cute. Not hardcore like some on this list, but we are here for diverse types of this trope HURRAY.

6. I Hate You More

Ally and Chase have always had a disliking for each other, but this is only amplified when Chase moves into the Lockwood household. Ally’s friends help her come up with a plan to get Chase kicked out of her house. The plan is interesting to read and watch it and the drama unravel. Both characters are very likeable as well as the friendships depicted in the book.

Things are slow to progress and I wish the pace of the book had been faster. When you get to the end of the book, it only feels like the beginning. Maybe Alexandra Moody is planning to write a sequel to follow Ally and Chase.

5. Falling For My Nemesis

Mia is a sweet strawberry blond girl in her senior year of highschool whose family life is falling apart. She is waiting on an advanced admission letter to Duke just hoping to get out of town and move forward before the chaos gets worse. She keeps all this hurt hidden from everyone, painting a happy face on and being the sweet, smart, kind girl she is to everyone at school. She doesn’t join any one group but gets along with them all and spends her time talking and enjoying everyone… everyone but Carson. He is the bane of her existence, her nemesis, she still can’t quite forgive him for almost drowning her on the day they met when she moved to Sweet Water as a young girl. But that is also where she met Ethan, her best friend, even if he is a year younger and Carson’s brother. Their family is her home away from home the haven from the chaos and fights of her parents. 
The boiling point comes when Carson accidentally or intentionally… hits her in the face with a basketball during gym while she is distracted thinking about all the difficulties at home and discussing the Snowflake ball with her friend. This is the breaking point and she snaps, running at him and grabbing him around the neck in an unsuccessful attempt to strangle Carson. Of course this winds them both in the principal’s office and the story begins…
Rather than suspend them which would ruin her chances at getting into Duke and Carson’s at his swimming scholarships, the principal offers them an alternative, run the charity event for Christmas, the Angel tree and christmas boxes for families in their areas. 
As they work together, grudgingly, Mia finds out more about Carson, who isn’t quite how she thought he was and she discovers that maybe he isn’t her Nemesis after all..

4. Perfect On Paper

Darcy Phillips can give you the solution to any of your relationship woes―for a fee but might not have the best judgement when it comes to her best friend, Brooke, who is in love with someone else. She also cannot stand Alexander Brougham, but when he catches her removing the letters for her questionably legal, anonymous relationship advice service, he offers her a deal. He’ll keep her secret if she becomes his life coach to get back his ex-girlfriend. She agrees as if word gets out that she’s behind the service, Brooke might never speak with her again. 

3. Scared

A serious car accident left her scarred physically and emotionally. Her “friends” left her abandoned and alone at a time when she needed them most. For seventeen-year-old Sloane Munster, the life she had known was gone, only the memories and her hopes and dreams remain, crushed and shattered. When she begins her senior year at a new school, she already knows what to expect and she was not disappointed. The bullies came out in droves, the gawkers would stare at her face with expressions from revulsion to pity as they saw the long, jagged scar. But the worst reaction came from a boy she had known at her other school, a boy she had crushed on from afar. His rage was almost touchable, the venom he in his voice was brutal and cold, and Sloane wouldn’t find out why for a long, painful time.

2. Can’t Beat Chemistry

There are only two things MJ wants in her final year of high school:

1) Glowing grades and …

2) to convince uber-smart, chiselled-jaw Jason they’d be a winning team outside the science lab as well as in.

Tutoring deadbeat drummer, Luke, isn’t part of the plan. After all, he has average intelligence, takes disorganised notes and looks like a partied-out zombie at their study sessions! Not even his taut biceps will win MJ over.But MJ learns that she could be tutored in a few life lessons too: That sometimes there’s good reason to skip chemistry tutorials. That intelligence is so much more than a grade average.And that sometimes you can’t beat the chemistry.

1. Letters To The Lost

ALL TIME FAVOURITE BOOK ALERTI swear I can’t love on this book enough. Plus it has a fantastic twist on the trope where Declan and Juliet are enemies in-real-life…but really close as anonymous penpals. And they’re only enemies IRL because of expectations. He’s known as the gruff, problematic loser who causes trouble and is doing community service. She’s the prissy “good girl” who is really standoffish. But what isn’t on the surface: both are suffering extreme loss and dealing with grief and depression. I sob over this book. Every time.

And that’s my top 10 favourite enemies to lover book . Did you agree with any of my choices? Did you disagree with any of them? Don’t be afraid to post a comment about either. You can also post comments for any other lists you want me to make. What are your favourite enemy to lover book ? What’s your favourite book genre?

    5 Irrational Fears of Mine


    Hi!

    Welcome beautiful people to another blog post sorry I missed last weeks upload it was my birthday weekend so I unfortunately was unable to upload but today is my first upload of April. I pray you are all having such a blessed and great day and if that is not the cause and you woke up on the wrong side of the bed that you can turn it around. Happy Easter today is Sunday the 4 April I just finished my Easter mass and spending time with family and practiced the piano a bit and here I am.

    I’ve been enjoying writing about myself. It’s been easy to write and fun to share things with you about me. I am scared of a lot of things – I am a HUGE coward but some things scare me more than others. Here are my irrational fears – Many if these things may not seen like such a big deal to you all but they do truly frighten me and sometimes it may be really hard to explain why they do but here we go….

    1. Birds – These creatures are pretty common in city they are everywhere . Infact you’re bound to find them in every single street or corner. I am TERRIFIED by them to the extent that I can’t even walk on the same pavement or perimeter if there’s a bird. When I mean that I am petrified of all birds I mean from seagulls to robins any type terrifies me. Most people seem to be able to ignore them but they creep the living hell out of me.  I just don’t get this species of birds. They are so unpredictable and do the most brainless things (like fly straight into the fan or straight into glass). They just freak me out so much! 

    2. FAILURE – I just can’t lose or fail. I used to be such a sore loser while playing sports. I also used to take every failure to heart and beat myself up about it. It’s taken me years to get myself to be more accepting of my failures and mistakes. Something I will try no to even do things are I am so scared of failures I will not do certain things and not take chances.

    3. People Not Liking Me – It is really something important to me for people to like me otherwise I try really hard for them to like me. I don’t make an effort towards having a lot of people in my life but I totally fear that the people in my life won’t like/love me. It is a fear that makes me do irrational things to make sure they stay. I go out of my way to do things for people and hate if I’m not appreciated. I know this in itself is a very unlikable quality and I’ve been working on caring less about being appreciated/liked. 

    4. Meeting New People I can usually interact easily with family and a few close friends. But meeting new people, talking in a group, or speaking in public can cause their extreme shyness to kick in. With social phobia, a person’s extreme shyness, self-consciousness, and fears of embarrassment get in the way of life. Instead of enjoying social activities, people with social phobia might dread them — and avoid some of them altogether. It really works me up

    5. Getting Skin Cancer – Look I completely understand how low the changes are of me a teen living in Ireland where we barely get any sun would get skin cancer. But you have no idea how terrified I am of getting skin cancer I just put on sun cream every day and make sure my skin is covered. I don’t stop worrying about getting skin cancer.

    What are some of your irrational fears? Spill the beans in the comments! What do you think about my irrational fears can you relate?

    Top Ten Friend To Lovers Books

    Hey Girls!

    So I am sure all of you your like to read Y/A books have all read the classics or at least heard of Fault in our stars, to all the boys I loved before, love Simon, we were liars etc I not saying those are bad books they are amazing but there are so many other great reads that just aren’t talked about that much.

I know it’s hard to pick just 10 but I figured I’d talk about some of my faves. 

    I hope you’ll enjoy reading my top ten favourite friend to lover books . I’m also super excited to hear your books recommendations, since I’m always looking for new books to read. What is your favorite book at the moment?

    I myself and partial to friends to lovers romance books that are based on childhood friendships. The history between characters is strong so you usual find characters completely comfortable with one another and with whom they can share the most intimate details of their lives.

    The best part is when one character has that moment where they see their friend in a completely different light, and are curious about taking their lifelong friendship in a new direction.

    Then of course comes the understandable concern in all friends to lovers books whether it’s worth risking the friendship to try for something more.

    Many friends to lovers books can also fall into the category of second chance love stories.

    While I love these stories too, this book list only includes friends to lovers books, not those that may also have a second chance element. That will be another book list so stay tuned!

    If you love friends to lovers books, you may also be a fan of enemies to lovers books. I know I am!


    There will be some SPOILERS !’!!!!!!!!!!

    10. Epic Fail

    Elise Benton moved to a L.A. with her family and the changes of course are taking some time. Elise is going to a prep school where everyone knows a movie star, and her mother is the principal. Ouch. There is one class in particular, Astronomy, that will be the most interesting. On the one hand in this class we have Derek Edwards, the brooding hunk with famous parents, and on the other we have Webster Grant, the easy-going guy with a fun attitude. Elise is a girl with a steady head on her shoulders and will not be wowed by the rich people environment, but there is just something about Derek. Grant says he’s trouble. Her sister Juliana is all doe-eyed with a boy named Chase, who happens to be best friends with Derek. What ensues are misunderstandings and misjudgments that create a big mess. A mess Elise is going to have to figure out.

    9. Coming Up for Air

    Maggie’s entire life is swimming. Since she was a kid, her focus has been on the sport and hopefully qualifying for the Olympics one day. Her best friend, Levi, also swims, and the two spend most of their time together. As they enter their senior year, however, Maggie starts to realize how much of typical teen life she’s missed out on because of swimming. In particular: relationships and being with a guy. So Maggie turns to Levi for help. After all, her best friend is well-versed in randomly hooking up with girls at swim meets, so she asks him to teach her to hook up. Maggie doesn’t think anything will go wrong with this plan–and that the two can maintain their close friendship. But is that really the case? And can Maggie still focus on the most important year of her swimming career? 

    8. The Summer I Turned Pretty

    Belly is this awkward teenager I couldn’t help relating to because at her age I was just as clueless, if not more! She turns pretty one summer and everything changes, her two life-long “friends” begin to act differently and tensions rise as further complications threaten to ruin the tradition of Summer. Let me start off by saying Cousin’s beach is a place I most definitely have to go!

    7. Kiss & Break Up by Ella Fields

    Dash and Peggy have been best friends since the day Dash demanded it when they were in preschool. He was her constant companion and protector whether she wanted it or not. Peggy reluctantly allowed it after realizing resistance was futile. Thankfully, he grew on her, and they developed a strong friendship comprised of video games, gummy candy, and Dash sneaking into Peggy’s window on a regular basis. 

    6. The Fine Art of Pretending


    According to the guys at Fairfield Academy, there are two types of girls: the kind you hook up with, and the kind you’re friends with. Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Reed is the second type. And she hates it. With just one year left to change her rank, she devises a plan to become the first type by homecoming, and she sets her sights on the perfect date—Justin Carter, Fairfield Academy’s biggest hottie and most notorious player.

    With 57 days until the dance, Aly launches Operation Sex Appeal and sheds her tomboy image. The only thing left is for Justin actually to notice her. Enter best friend Brandon Taylor, the school’s second biggest hottie, and now Aly’s pretend boyfriend. With his help, elevating from “funny friend” to “tempting vixen” is only a matter of time.

    But when everything goes according to plan, the inevitable “break up” leaves their friendship in shambles, and Aly and Brandon with feelings they can’t explain. And the fake couple discovers pretending can sometimes cost you the one thing you never expected to want.

    5. Second Kiss

    Gemma Mitchell is your typical, self conscience fourteen year old who simply wants to fit in at school, with friends and at home. But as much as she tries, mishaps as innocent as forgetting her class schedule, inviting a few friends over for her non-birthday party, trying to open the wrong locker, and jumping into a freezing lake seem to land her in precarious situations. Lucky for Gem, her best friend Jess Tyler is always close by to rescue her or simply lend a shoulder to cry on. But Jess and Gemma’s worlds couldn’t be more different. As they battle the struggles that come along with growing up, they find themselves in a relationship that means more to them than simply just fitting in.

    I liked how their story is steady and yet captivating the whole way through. It was great to see how honestly Palmer depicts her characters when it comes to first love, family trials, and friendship tribulations. 

    4. Adorkable

    The nicknames in this book were hilarious ! Our heroine is Sally Sue Spitz and her classmates call her Spitz. And her best friend is Lillian Hooker, who Sally calls Hooker. Loved it! So Sally was forever single and Hooker, trying to be the best friend ever, always set Sally up on blind dates. But these weren’t regular blind dates. Or even regular guys it would seem. Each and every interaction Sally had with them had me laughing, groaning or doing both out loud. After a horrible double-double date (you’ll see what I mean lol) gone terribly wrong and a misunderstanding, Sally comes up with the idea that she needs a fake boyfriend. It was the only way to stop Hooker’s attempts. So she begged Becks, her best friend forever who’s been in her life since grade school, to be her fake boyfriend.

    3. Catching Jordan

    I always rave about this book because it is so good. What girl doesn’t want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn’t just surrounded by hot guys, though–she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys and that’s just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university.But everything she’s ever worked for is threatened when Ty Green moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing QB, but he’s also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan’s feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart’s on the line?

    2.That Boy

    he story is told from JJ’s (Jadyn Reynolds) point of view. It starts with her telling us about her best friend Phillip, and the horrible day Danny the Devil moved into their neighborhood. 

    See Danny being the devil that he is thinks JJ can’t keep up with him and Phillip since they are big tough boys and she is a wimpy girl, she proves him wrong when she lays him out with a punch. From that day forward a friendship formed. 

    The story is told in chronological order and we follow JJ as she goes through middle school and is made fun of for receiving her first kiss from one of her best friend. High school when she must go on her first date-date with a senior and doesn’t know if she knows how to kiss, so her best friend teaches her how. Then to college where her two best friends help her get through college life. 

    Their friendship helps JJ through some of the most difficult times in her life, they love and protect her but only one can be her boy .

    While this trio would immediately make you think…love triangle, drama, angst, big mess – you couldn’t be more wrong. Each person has a role in their dynamic group, and they fit together perfectly.

    1. The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen

    Childhood friends who reconnect as teenagers and then fall in love? Sign us up for this cuteness.

    Emma Saylor’s mother was at times both larger than life and withdrawn. She died five years ago, when Emma was 12, but her parents were divorced much earlier than that, and she lived with her father and grandmother.

    While there are many things about her mother that Emma has forgotten, she always remembered the stories her mother used to tell her about the lake community where she grew up and met Emma’s father. But while it was one big lake, it was like two separate worlds—her mother grew up in working-class North Lake, while her father worked at the yacht club on the prestigious Lake North side. 

    When Emma goes to stay with her mother’s family for a few weeks one summer, it is the first time she has been back to the lake since she was four or five years old. Her large family—maternal grandmother, aunt, cousins—have never forgotten her, but Emma has little memory of any of it. Yet the more time she spends there, the more she feels like she belongs, the more she learns about her mother’s life, her parents’ relationship, and the stories that she has never heard.

    While she was born with two names at birth, Emma Saylor, her mother used to call her Saylor, but it’s a name she stopped using years ago. But she realizes that Saylor is just as much a part of her, and since that’s the name her new-found family calls her, she feels a connection to her past that she hadn’t before. And that bridge between the past and the present is embodied in the relationships she builds with her cousins, and the friendship she rekindles with Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when they were little, and whose spell she can’t seem to resist now.

    It’s hard to be caught between two different worlds, especially when there is so much history that transpired which left those you cared about full of hurt and sadness. Yet Emma is determined to have the life her father wants to give her, while at the same time, she doesn’t want to lose her connections to her past, or the people who were such a special part of it. But that won’t be easy, and others may get hurt in the process.

    What is your favourite season? What are your plans for Easter ?


    Just an Average Teenage Girl trying to get through life xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Plan with me!

    Hey Girls!

    It is so crazy that we are on our 3rd month of 2021 which is crazy to say I fells like only a week time really flies by, I hope that you had a great start of the year if not it’s the start of March winter us ending spring is coming, spring is my favourite season it just signifies rebirth and coming of life I God swing the blossoming of flowers. We will soon be hitting 1 year of Covid-19 which is just crazy!!

    So another aspect of Spring that I just love is that many people in my life are actually born in March my younger sister, aunty, uncle , cousin, friends and Myself!!! We are currently in lockdown so we cannot do much but my sister is born the 18th of March which is very soon, I decided upon myself to plan a surprise party for her as she deserves it. So for today’s post I am going to be brainstorming and create mood boards just overall planning of how my sisters party will turn out! Hope you enjoy this post!

    You know what? I love party planning. I realize not everyone feels this way and though that is very difficult for me to understand, I’m trying to cope. I love the process of planing a fiesta form start to finish. From brainstorming to seeing the results on the day of your event; it’s all so exciting for me. Sometimes when I plan events, I have a tendency to overthink things. So to help you not do that, I’m sharing a few really easy party planning tips.

    Theme

    One thing I’ve found that makes party planning manageable is having a theme. Your theme doesn’t need to be overly complicated – that defeats the purpose. Determining the theme for your party narrows down the list of foods to serve, music to play and drinks to have. For instance, hosting a pineapple themed party,you’ll obviously have lots of pineapple inspired food and drink.

    So for my sister theme I chose to do a movie night theme, I choose this because it really gives you a lot of moving room and different ways to organise the party I am just so excited to see how it turns out. My sister is a big movie buff she loves anything from tv to movies so I thought it would be really fitting for her I am certain that she will just love it!

    This is just inspiring not my picture

    Invites

    I was so excited once I finally chose the theme that I wanted for my sisters party I decided to create the invitations which I love so much they really go with the theme so I made ticket type of invites I just finished sending them out. The invites I think are really important.

    Stock up on party supplies and decorations

    This is where the real fun starts! Decide whether you want to go simple or all out (why wouldn’t you?) and pick decorations that match your party theme. So since my theme is movie night I am doing this on lower budget I hit up my closest craft stores and food stores.Stick to a few main colours to guarantee your party decorations look perfectly colour-coordinated.

    Order a birthday cake

    If you’re planning a birthday party, you mustn’t forget this!!! Order it a couple of weeks in advance to make sure it’s ready on time and if you’re making your own, it’s a good idea to do a trial run on new recipes to avoid any baking disasters!If you’re no Mary Berry, you could always buy a pre-made supermarket cake. I will be ordering a cake just do it will look more put together as I can bake but not sure I am up to that standards

    This is just inspiring not my picture

    Plan your party food (but don’t buy anything)

    Whether you’re on a budget or not, plan out what party food you’ll need in advance to make sure you’ll have enough to feed everyone. If you’re sharing the role of caterer, planning things out in advance will help you organise who’s bringing what. So I am going to budget but this is an easy party of get food for as it will be mostly consistent if sweets, popcorn and sodas which are relative cheap things to purchase

    This is just inspiring not my picture

    Decorate the venue and get the party started!

    Thanks to your amazing organisational skills (and our handy party checklist), everything should be sorted by the day of the party! All that’s left to do is decorate the venue, get ready and have fun!

    Why I am not Dating…

    Hey!

    I pray that each and everyone of my readers and followers are having such a wonderful life and trying to make the best of these unpredictable and weird times. So I have decided not to post as much due to life getting so hectic but I am trying to get back into the blogging rhythm I have been going through a idea rut I can’t think of anything good to post so I have been only posting once of week usually a Saturday it’s a great way to just express and lay out any of my crazy and overcompensate thoughts from my week as a teen. Right now it’s the midterm for me so no school, I decided what better to do with my time the post a blog I have been wanting to do more in-depth personal blogs so here I am.

    So for today’s post I would like to make more of a journal/ conversation post as I have been wanting this blog also to be a keepsake to look back on and reminisce on the good old days of my teenage struggles. The topic that I want to discuss is dating as a teen , you probably already know that because you have read the title. I have had this on my to do list for months but I have been meaning to write this post but have pushed it at the back of my to do list. The wait is no longer as here I am writing it.

    17th February 2020

    Today is about 3 days post Valentine’s Day, I did in fact spend Valentine’s Day of 2021 single. I know it’s really weird or kinda unheard of a high schooler who isn’t dating. So throughout my entire high-school years I haven’t dated anyone and I wanted to bring this to people attention because I know some other people who may not be dating either and feel a bit isolated and like a weirdo for not dating but it is completely normal. I wanted to share my experience of not dating in highschool and all of my reasons.

    My first reasons and probably my biggest is the fact that I attended an all-girls Catholic school and there were slim pickings anyways.A lot of my friends who are dating often date people in their class because it is an easy way to met people. Maybe it’s because I was socially awkward and didn’t know how to talk to boys. Maybe it’s because I was too busy with involvements and friends and everything else. Sure. While those reasons are all part of the answer, there’s a better reason (actually a few better reasons) why I didn’t date in high school… and why maybe you should do the same.  I could blame my none existing dating life on many variables which I cannot change but I know deep down I am not dating because I have made it a personal choice for myself.

    Don’t get me wrong — I’m not saying that dating in high school is a bad thing. Sometimes dating in high school is a good learning experience. Sometimes — rarely, I’m afraid — high school sweethearts can turn into long-lasting relationships and marriages. But typically, when we’re in high school, we’re not ready for serious relationships. Highschool relationships are just fun no lasting relationships which most likely won’t overcast a year then when you break up it’s awkward with your nutrias friends. Heartbreak can really bring you into a dark road which is unintentional but some people find it hard to get back in track while dealing with just basic teen strugpghkes and stress like college grades, who we are etc

    In high school, we’re trying to figure out who we are and have so much to learn about ourselves before they can really share life with another person.
    When I discovered this, I decided that the most valuable thing I could do with my time in high school was to invest in myself and in my friends, and let me tell ya sisters — I do not regret a single thing. A saying which I live by is Highschool is where you meet your bridesmaid not your groom. I totally love this as I have made so many valuable and lifelong friends which could have been patronised by some guy who’s name I won’t remember 5 years later.

    What I’m trying to say is… How can you love someone else, be a life-giving friend, or foster fruitful relationships if you’re not taking care of yourself first? By building up your character, resting in your identity, and investing in yourself, you become more of the person God created you to be, and you will be more free to love another person more fully in the future. You can’t rule live someone if you haven’t yet learned to God yourself you need to be able to make a whole from two people not a whole from broken pieces hoping I they will fill over time.

    I am here to tell you that being single and being young is a gift. Instead of spending your time pining over a boy or wishing you weren’t single, take advantage of your single years to invest in building a community of empowered and holy women. While my guy friends are some of the absolute best people in my life, there is simply nothing like having a good group of gal pals.

    I am a devout Christian and my faith holds a big party of who I am and what I do .The truth is, God hasn’t promised any of us marriage. Time after time, we’re told, “God has someone who will be perfect for you!” when God has promised no such thing. God promises to meet our needs; He doesn’t promise us a husband or a wife.

    It might take some time to process this truth, to let this sink in and to grieve the potential loss of a dream. But the value in accepting this harsh reality is that it allows you to begin to dream new dreams for your life and to live fully the life you’ve been given today

    There’s a big different between a Christian Guy and a Man of God. A Christian guy might say that “he loves you” but a Man of God will love God more than you. A Christian guy might send you Bible verses or have a tattoo of them but a Man of God will live out those verse and have them written on his heart.

    Valentines Heart Jam Biscuits

    Hey!

    So on my my absolute favorite things to do in baking I love to experiment different recipes and the one of by very favorites happen to be cake ! So I thought I would share with alll of you my recipe to make my Cookies .

    But since it’s the season of love which I love I thought why not set the mood a bit and share with y’all with a super easy Valentines treat to make during the weekends. And I just love biscuits. One of the funnest and tastiest thing about Valentines is the chocolate and food, am I right? It doesn’t matter whether you are single, taken or married these can be used for Valentine’s Day.

    Ingredients:

    • 250g unsalted butter
    • 100g granulated sugar
    • 350 all-purpose flour
    • 2 tbsp milk
    • 1 lemon (for its zest), grated
    • 100g jam (any flavour)
    • icing sugar (to dust)

    Directions:

    1. In the bowl of your mixer, CREAM butter, sugar and lemon until smooth. Sieve the flour and pour the milk.
    2. With hands bring the dough together. Wrap the dough with cling film and place in the fridge for 25 mins. In the meantime line the baking trays.
    3. PREHEAT oven to 180°C. Roll out 1/2 dough on a flour surface at about 3mm, using heart cutter cut out as many as possible. Squeeze any leftover dough back into a ball, roll and cut out some more hearts
    4. Take the second half of dough, cut out some more heart shapes and this time, cut smaller hearts in the middle of the larger hearts. Repeat until all the dough is used
    5. Place biscuits on trays. Bake for 12 minutes. Once they are a light golden colour take them out.
    6. When cool, spread jam onto the whole biscuit shapes and place a cut-out heart shape on top. Sprinkle icing on top.

    Friendships…

    Hey!

    I pray that each and everyone of my readers and followers are having such a wonderful life and trying to make the best of these unpredictable and weird times.

    So for today’s post I would like to make more of a journal/ conversation post as I have been wanting this blog also to be a keepsake to look back on and reminisce on the good old days of my teenage struggles. The topic that I want to discuss is Starting a new School, you probably already know that because you have read the title. I have had this on my top 5 blog post for the past 6 months but I have been meaning to write this post but have pushed it at the back of my to do list. The wait is no longer as here I am writing it.

    6th February 2020

    So I am only a teen and I comprehend that I have a lifetime ahead ogpf me with so many choices and changes that are way behind my control but instead in Gods hold I must just sit back and wait for such occurrences. But as I teen I think that they are the years which people really change and find out who they are we develop so much from style, haircuts, school and friendships.

    I have recently started a new school , back in September I had began a new school it was a big change from the other school which I had transferred from deciding to change schools was a really scary situation for me and the hardest thing to do was leaning my friends behind. At the time I was part of a large group of friends we were so close about 15 if us and considered fairly popular. I knew that in my heart changing schools would change the dynamic which I had with them. I expected for us to still be able to hangout text and FaceTime each other. The first couple weeks it was the same but due to the pandemic I was unable to see them safely while they saw each other at school I missed out in conversations and memories. I slowly saw the decline in calls and texts my way. I see that they meet up without me and have group chats which I am not part of it hurts. But what really hurt was that one of my other friends also transferred schools but she was still way more involved in that friendship group. I know and now except that friends drift apart it us the cycle of life. I have done it so many times in my life first time moving from France then changing from elementary and then transferred from secondary school. But guess what it is happening again. I know I am going to lose my friends again. So as I have mentioned in one of my previous post updates was that I will be skipping one year of school and moving from freshman to junior. So only 25 people in my year will be doing the same that I am doing. But as we only had 3 months in real school and the remainder was online I was unable to from that many friendships but I do have 2 friends who I will know moving the same year as me but I will have to restart again.

    I do want to talk about why up I have changed in friendships to many times in my life. I have recently came to the realisation that God has removed me from friendship for a reason he was seen and heard things which I was unaware of. So I am in a group chat which my friends from my past school have been complain and taking bad about a girl wanting nothing to do with her being really two faced acting like her friends in front of her than complain and talking about her behind her back. I really don’t tolerate such meanest I haven’t realised in the bad how they acted but nice with a different view u really am blessed to no longer be involved in that behaviour. This has been something that I have prayed to God about and thanked him for showing me the light and surrounding me with people who are good ✨vibes✨ . These people are still my friends I care for them dearly and I still hangout with them but no longer involved in gossip or meanest which they are unconsciously involved in.

    have learned that sometimes God removes people from your life for a reason. If you have come to this post I can almost guess that you are trying to figure out if God is trying to remove someone from your life.

    Or should you continue to try to hang on to the person in question? Because after all, it is human nature for us to try to hang on to someone that we love and that we care about.

    God can be sending us every single sign in the entire world that he is trying to remove this person from our life but we still try to hang on to that person. Now, why is that?
    When God removes someone from your life.  Do not be resentful that they left, but be glad.  Be glad that you see their true colors.  I know what you may be thinking “But it is hard to see someone be ripped out of your life that you care about.

    So through teen years we fluctuate with friendships style and moods so often but I think it is a process we all really must have to except and understand how these are things which we need to do in order to grow as people. Friendships are so complicated but true ones will last. At this very moment I am terrified of life moving past me o quickly but I don’t have any close friends at the moment but I gave many friends but instead focus on my faith and relationship with Jesus all will fall into place. I have friends from different parts of my life which I am so thankful for
