Healthy "cookies" - diet snack

Hey guys!

I'm on study leave and spent the day at home. So I took a small break from revision and watched some videos on Youtube.
I found this amazing cheap and quick recipe which I tried straight away. All I needed was 3 ingredients and it is super healthy!

So here are the details:
Time needed:
8 minutes preparation
15-20 minutes in the oven

1 Banana
1 cup of oatmeal
a hand full of raisins
Substitute tips;
IF you hate raisins leave them out
IF you don't like bananas add anoter fruit instead which is easy to either mash up or any type of berries e.g. blueberries

HOW to do it:

It's pretty straight forward (if even I'm able to do it anyone should be)
1) put the oatmeal into a bowl
2) add  the banana and raisins
3) mash up the banana and knead it in with the oatmeal and raisins
It won't look like bread doughbut it will get a sticky texture
4) Put baking paper on the tray
5) Take some of the oatmeal mixture and form little cookies
6) Finally, putit in the oven and let it bake for 15-20 minutes
If you have a gas oven it should be on gas mark number 4 when baking
If you live in the US it should be 350 fahrenheit
If you have an electrical oven with temperatures in Celsius it should be around 175 Celsius

Try it! The raisins and banana smell deliciously in the oven and the best bit is that you don't have to add any sugar and it is absolutely healthy!
This is my final result and I was even able to make a vine video, that's how quickly you can make these!

School stress

Anyone that lives in the UK will know that this is one of the most important years of my life. I have to sit my GCSEs. They are exams that every 16 year old in England sits. 
The main question is : "How do I keep up with my social life, have time to work on my blog and study as well?" 

Honestly, I don't have a social life anymore. These times are over. But I do have time for my blog. Well not really but I manage my time so that I still get to spend some time on social networks. 

So these are some tips that I believe will help you guys to cope with your studies but also "have a life". 

1) Time Management - have a revision plan which covers all the subjects and include breaks 

2) Use your breaks well - instead of wasting time to text your friend about something very useless just do something that you enjoy but never get the time to E.g. If you are a girl I'm pretty sure that you waste some time of your day talking about that one guy that most likely doesn't even know that you like him. 

3) Wake up early - don't sleep till 11 am. Honestly, you don't need that much sleep. 5/6 hours of sleep is enough for survival. Once your exams are over you can sleep as much as you want. That's what summer holidays are for. 

4) Use your nights well. Don't go on Facebook or Twitter and end up just reading every single tweet. What kind of progress are you making in life by doing that? I'm not saying that I don't do it all but don't spend HOURS on social networks. 

5) At last: Do something that actually is indirectly a way of gaining experience or knowledge. E.g. Blogging helps me a lot for my English language exam. You can maybe blog, read books, write a fan-fiction or if you are sporty practice your sport or you may just go jogging. 

One final time: USE YOUR TIME EFFICIENTLY!!! (I wrote this article on the bus while I was on my way home from the library where I studied - better than starring out the window right?!)

Demi Lovato Gig - the ticket mess @Vevo_UK unorganised

I told you guys already that I tried getting tickets to the Demi gig and I was right at the front of the queue with  Bethan ( @Demi_Lovatic_UK ). It all just ended up being a very disorganized and unfair process. There were reporters and here's is what happened in more detail:
