Get Ready With Me: First Day Back at School!


I finally finished my first day of Second Year! Woop woop!
Now like 9 more months to go... Yay... :( 
But I like school so yay/nay :/


Anyway I'm here to present to you what I did to get ready for my first day back after three months of summer, and I also what I did in school, which isn't much. I went back two days ago, on the 27th. I was so excited to see all my friends again and all. I was only in from 12 to 3, so I was able to take my time that morning since I woke up at like 8 (I'm a morning person :D).

Without further adue, here is my second Back to School post!

The night before, after washing my hair, I plaited my hair into four, as you can see. I was planning to rock the look the next day... Just kidding! I did it before last year and it made my hair curly and frizzy (in a cool and different way). I wanted to try it out again for my first day.

I sprayed this on to my plaits for a nourishing treatment. I can't even tell if it worked yet.

In the morning, I had my breakfast first (Rice Krispies!) and watched a little TV (since I was up quite early and I didn't have be in school till 12, as I said). I went up stairs and changed into my uniform. I don't wear a hoodie to school (we're not allowed) but I wanted to cover up my school shirt.

I tied my hair into my signature side ponytail, and as you can tell, the plaits did make a difference.

I added a little hairband from Penneys to finish it off.

Hair: Complete!

You gotta brush your teeth y'all!

I washed my face with this great refreshing face wash.

And with my Benefit moisturizer, I primed my skin for my make up.

I didn't want to do photos for what I used for makeup since I used the exact same stuff as I did in a previous post. Click the photo above to see how I did it!
Also I don't wear a face of make up everyday.

I am not really allowed nail polish in school but I tried out a French manicure the night before. It is pretty natural so I doubt will notice straight away. The most trouble I'll get in is being told to take it off, which isn't that bad as there's a girl in my form who was told to take it off every week last year but still continues to wear coloured nails.

I can't show you my outfit unfortunately (Irish uniforms aren't very exciting anyway) but I can show you my school shoes! I love them; so comfortable!

Then I was ready to go! Of course I organised my bag and books and all that and brought them, but no one really cares about that... I'll do a Supplies Organisation post soon.

When I arrived I got to see all my pals again which was great and said hi to a few other girls. There's a new girl and she's Mexican! She's not in my form though, so I didn't get to talk to her.
We had a Study Skills day which means a few guys came in (not from our school) to talk to us and gives us ideas on how to study and note taking. It was very helpful I thought. I might do a separate post in a few weeks on study tips.

Today I did my first proper day! It was a bit different because it was a new timetable and I was separated from my form class for my choice subjects, business and Spanish and into new classes with different teachers. It was grand.

Also, I played hockey today! I play for my school, and it is the best sport EVER! It really keeps you fit and is so fun!

So that's all guys! Good luck in school!
