New Blog sites to recommend? + more social media networking


Good evening everyone! Long time once again!
As I haven't had much time to any sort of blogging, I yet again have opened another social media account to help keep me alive on here! I have SO many things to update, including my AMAZING trip to Taiwan and Japan! A truly wonderful experience (with thousands of photos to remember them by heh...) Although the photos will have to wait as I have other new and exciting things to get on with for now!

I also wondered if anyone knows anymore exciting blogging sites for me to exploit, please do tell me!

Feeling SO outdated! ごめなさい!!

After I thought I have returned to the blogging world, I sometimes find it so difficult to escape the reality of other things that really get in your way of free time, relaxation and other things you may normally get up to, and to be frank right after I handed in my final project during my last year of university... well, I thought I could return back to my normal lifestyle of happy gaming and catching up with friends, blogging and working but in fact things turn out so different when you realise how many friends have moved on in life.. like moving away, finding a new job, completely changing their dream jobs for the happy family lifestyle, getting married, having kids, quitting drinking/smoking (note- some of these things are actually positive things) but all that has left me with is - WHERE AM I!?! What have I been doing? What have YOU been doing? I am filling out my 5 year diary plan, and looking at some of the things I have written last year.. I haven't actually said any different this year.. which I suppose isn't so much a bad thing, but when I think about it, it's not actually a good thing either.

So before I go yapping away with my life stories, I am going to leave my facebook page and twitter for those who just feel to follow someone new or with a similar experience or just to make a new friend! I am more alive on those things, but its sometimes nice to escape the facebook chains and cages, for something a little more, how can I say it, away from it all?

Facebook page:

I should probably share some new good news and all that, so for anyone that knows of the infamous Gaming industry SQUARE ENIX, would most certainly know of the magical game called FINAL FANTASY!
I entered into a cosplay competition, to create a costume to celebrate the soon-to-be-released notorious Final Fantasy 14: A realm reborn, and well, I CAME TOP 5 runners up, out of, what was probably hundreds of entries across 5 countries around Europe! I was so ecstatic, sitting in front of my laptop on the day of they announcement, and what do I see when I look on the Final fantasy facebook page, my winning entry photo!! It took me one month to make, nearly 1000 feathers and without any previous cosplay/costume making experience!!

And here it is on the official Final Fantasy; you can also view the other winners, special awards and runners up too! Fantastic competition!! I wouldn't have wanted to compete with any others!! website: If you got a facebook or twitter, please feel free to share and perhaps inspire others to do the unexpected!!

Funny I think the last time i made a blog was also about one of the final fantasy competition that I entered previously, but anyhow, I will stop writing about Final Fantasy and time to get on with other things in my life! More blogs to come!! Please feel free to share any comments with me!

(I've returned! How is everybody?)

So it has practically been a year since I last made a post as my last post was about Christmas/New years time last year! My my, how so much has happened over the year - I don't even know where to start!

I suppose a quick run through is in order:
  1. Finally in my third year of studies, so my head is faced down with focus! (The F word!)
  2. My holiday this year was practically the Olympics! 
  3. Lots and lots of gaming - catch up with friends!
  4. Gym time.. which has slowly decreased over the last few months. I blame uni!
  5. My hair has grown! ^^
  6. I lost some friends, but gained some friggin awesome ones! (My life still in it's hunting ground for happiness and success!)
I guess I can always catch up in bits seeing as I can easily sum everything up in photos!
But for the mean time.. I must importantly spread my video, for the love of my favorite RPG (Role playing Game) Final Fantasy! 

I entered into a competition to be the first ever Final fantasy SUPER FAN! not expecting to make it into the top 25.. however I did! So Wherever means necessary, I must show my love to the world and earn some votes, which will give me some amazing prizes! Like going to France to See Final Fantasy Orchestra! And my Name being in the New Final Fantasy Game! Along with an amazing goodie bag!

So if anyone has the time to do an AWESOME favor and Vote for me!! My name is under Emiii12 - even sharing my video will be pretty awesome!

I will be back to post more frequently hopefully!! Everyone, see you soon!!

Christmas and New Year Resolution?


I hope everyone had a wonderful christmas; stuffed with masses of food and wonderful pretty gifts!! I had a wonderful christmas even though I am SO very ill right now :( Quickest way to get better suggestions please? I'm already wearing two my gifts from my friends - cute warm penguin socks and a wool wrap!!

Here are a few quick pictures of my christmas overall ~ Get comfy!

Christmas Caroling in Trafalgar Square.

Iconic lights of Picadilly Circus.

This years decoration on carnaby street.

Sparkly Westfield Shopping Centre in the Village.

The EXTRAVAGANT SHOPPING spree at HARRODS, Mayfair London and its wonderful decorations *twinkletwinkle* They never fail to impress and stun me with it's richness!

My dream make up desk...

HARRODS FOOD HALL (forget about the make up section lol!)

All the wonderful presents given and accepted over christmas! yay!

My Christmas Tree!

Present of Baklawa (Traditional Arabic sweets) from my Jiddo! (Grandfather)

Gifts I received this year :) I'm so delighted with all that I have!

And of course not forgetting (probably the best part) THE FEAST!!!

A few arabic dishes I had in restaurants! (yumyum)

My little Meeka waiting for the food to arrive hehe~~

And.. HEY PRESTO!! The food on the table was all cooked by my amazing mother! (on note, there was still more food in the kitchen as this was all we could fit on the table!) I'm so blessed to have such a loving and giving mother :) I wish my dad could've been there..

And Last but not least.. THE TURKEY!!! Bon Appetit! ^^

Before cooked...

And after cooked!! TA-DAAAA~~~~!

My brother and cousin in for the kill.. haha~

I would have put some photos up of myself but I look atrocious!! Especially because I am ill :( But when I get better I hope to put up some photos of myself as I have a few make up practising to get on with!

But now I'm starting to think about my New Years Resolution. Quite a tricky one as I haven't thought too deep about it. However I hopefully intend to do a few on this little list (inshallah):

  • Save Money
  • Work hard, Play less
  • Get cracking with my Japanese and take on the JLPT test!
  • Grow my HAIR! And keep avoiding cuts and colouring (for now - until it's at a certain length I can really get some styles going)
  • Learn some Arabic (as mixed as I am.. I only know the english language sadly- But I intend to change that and do something about it!!)
  • Lose weight / or if there's no time - Actually shape up and get some Zumba time for summer!

So that's it for now but really as i said, I haven't thought too deep into it just yet :\ So if any of you want to share some of your ideas for a realistically - better change, then please do share with me! As I'm always intrigued with new things to do in my life and to keep myself busy!!
