Hi everyone:)

Hope everything's great in your lives and that everybody who's on holiday is making the most of it cus exams are soon!!

So this post is about my injuries and how I've been recovering and also the best techniques to get back on track with your life. So my first injury was when I was about 9 I think, I fell and stretched a knee tendant I think. It was easy to recover from seeing as it wasn't very bad. I had to take a good month and a half off from training but otherwise I was fine.

On the 2nd of January 2014, I had probably the worst accident I'll ever have. It was physically the most painful experience I've ever been through and I definitely do not want to repeat that. I was at skating practice and collided with another girl. Her blade went into my lower leg, shattering the skin of the tibia (the bone). It killed all the nerves and two years later, I still can't feel the skin. I definitely don't blame her for it, it was both our faults. I was honestly very lucky considering I could've lost the skin that was sliced and if the blade had hit my leg any harder, I would've been leaving the hospital with several screws in my leg and not just 42 stitches. I was off training for a good two months and started going back into sport in March. Every day I went a bit further, trying a bit harder. I took a bit too many pain killers and honesty I feel I went back in too quickly. I should've given it more time to heal, let the bone recover completely. According to my sports doctor, I still have little fractures on the skin of the bone, that might never heal. My first competition was 3 weeks after coming back and it was the French national alpine ski championships. I preformed surprisingly well. I had been expecting a worse time than what I got. I continued on with competitions for another year and then decided along side my coach that I should take a year off skating competitions. I continued on with skiing but didn't do amazingly. I always managed to mess up my competitions and it didn't go so well I guess.

I've also had several problems with twisted ankles and knees, leaving me with quite a sensitive body haha. The best way to recover in my opinion is having friends and family alongside you supporting you through it all. So if you have any bad injuries or are recovering from it, take all the time you need. Don't force yourself, do what's best for you.

Hi everyone, I might not be active for a bit due to a personal reason but that's just a maybe:)

So my friend came back from Canada a few weeks ago and yesterday we met up with some friends and spent the day together. We had lunch at this super nice Italian restaurant and then we went walking and took a ton of photos. There was also this market thing going on so we looked at that ( Kat ended up buying socks lol). We also spent like an hour in Sephora and my hand was covered in lipstick by the end. I'll add the nice photos we took to this post:)

Happy holidays to everyone who's got them and sucks to be you if you have school

Hiiii, thanks for reading my first post and I hope you enjoyed it. Here's the second one. I put a lot more time and effort into this one so yeah I hope it's worth it!!

Friends - people who are aware of how retarded you are and still manage to be seen in public with you. people who make you laugh till you pee your pants. people who cry for you when one of your special items disappear. when you dont have enough money to get a ice cream, they chip in. knows all of your internet passwords. who would never make you cry just to be mean.

Your best friend in life could be someone you grew up with, it could also be someone you meet at Uni. A lot of friends come and go in life and the length of a friendship doesn't always determine the strength. You could be closer to someone you met two months ago than to someone you met 5 years ago. You also have to accept that people change and that people changing could potentially change your friendship and sometimes letting it go is for the best. A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become and still gently allows you to grow. A lot of teenagers have a lot of fake friendships that lead to trust issues, yes it's good to have a lot of people you can trust but make sure they are people who will be there for you if you're feeling low or just need someone to talk to and not someone who talks behind your back to other people . If you're in a friendship where you're always the person making efforts and not getting anything out of it, why should you continue putting time and effort into it? If your friend isn't someone that sticks up for you when your not around, someone that doesn't try to make you feel happy, someone that doesn't surprise you or make you laugh, are they even a proper friend at all? Everyone makes mistakes and there are always other people out there in the world.

Real friends will stick by you, put up with your endless crap and love you for who you are.

Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time to read this.

So I've been kinda nervous about starting this but here goes nothing. I know me doing this is slightly cheesy but oh well. I hope you actually like this and this works out. This website was recommended to me by a friend and I've got to say, some of the blogs I've seen are amazing! Today's post is just going to be a bit about myself and my life.

So I was born in London but moved to this tiny country for my dad's job when I was still quite young. I left behind my whole family and quite a lot of friends but luckily I still have contact with most of them. I like it here but I also feel quite trapped sometimes. It's such a small place, I feel that if you mess up everyone hears about it and you don't get a chance to restart even if you change schools. It's such a small place, you can't go into the capital "city" without seeing somebody you know or someone you've seen on social media. It's a very safe place and environment to grow up in though. I go to one of the five big private schools and I have a lot of "friends". I constantly meet new people and make new friends. I have quite a lot of close friends but it's not always easy to trust people.

I started figure skating at the age of 6, which in my opinion was a bit late but in my club I was definitely one of the youngest. I developed very strong bonds with some of the skaters but many, over the years, have left. Skating is definitely a tough discipline that requires huge amounts of efforts. I stopped working hard one year when I'd had enough. I regret it because it's effected my trainings and it's also part of the reason I stopped competing for the season. I had a horrible accident on the 2nd of January 2015. I crashed with another skater and her blade cut into my leg, shattering the skin of my tibia and killing all of the nerves In the process. Still to this day I feel as if I haven't recovered, I still get panic attacks when skaters come too close to me, my leg still gives me huge problems when I do exercise. Enough of that, I'll do a separate post for my skating life.

I live quite a complicated life and at times it feels difficult but comparing it to some children's, it's heaven. Both my parents are successful buisness workers meaning they don't have all that much time for me and my siblings. I have one sister and a brother, both younger. I grew up with a full time nanny who had two daughters and even though we have an 11 year and a 9 year gap between us, we still get along really well. They're kinda like half sisters to me though I rarely see them seeing as they're at uni. I'm honestly really grateful for everything I have.

I've been a bit down over the past couple of months, this is one of the reasons I'm doing this blog. I'm really hoping that this willhelp get my mood up and stuff aha:)

So that's basically it for my first post but please feel free to ask me anything,

E xxx
