First Day back at school can be so hard especially if you are starting a new school, or even new a job, you are not always sure of the people you are going to meet or what you are going to have to do! I know i never get any sleep the night before school, but then in the morning everything is fine! So here are just some tips if you are feeling nervous:
What should you bring with you?
-Pencil case and basic stationary- its important to be prepared and you don't want to get told off for not taking the right thing!
-Deodorant/body spray/ mini perfume
-Your make-up bag if you are allowed to wear make-up, if you aren't sure what to put in your make-up bag check out our blog post http://beautyknowitalls.blogspot.com/2011/09/what-in-my-school-make-up-bag.html.
-Plain notebook or jotter pad, some schools provide these.
-Mints or a snack
-It is also a good idea to hide £5 or even just £1 somewhere in your bag in case you loose your purse and you need emergency money, don't spend it in the vending machines, just forget it till you need it.
-ipod and phone if you are allowed them.
That's all you should be needing but if you are starting a new school here are some tips on making friends!
- When people approach you or you approach them try to make sure you keep a smile on your face because that is so welcoming and will automatically make people want to talk to you more than someone who is not smiling.
-Don't be afraid to mingle with all different people, girls and boys alot of them will be in the same position as you and might not know people!
- Be yourself, you don't want to pretend to be someone else when your around your real friends, it's important for people to just get to know the real you so that you don't come across false.
- Ask questions, people love to talk about themselves. Just listen intently and remember points that they make, so you can bring them up at a later time.
- If you are interested in netball or science or any hobby, join a club where there are people with the same interests as you and you can build off that.
Hope this helps you all in any way! Not really a beauty post but be expecting another post tomorrow! ;)
