PERSONAL | THE NOTEBOOK KIND OF LOVE

notebooklove

Most people go through one epic love. You know, that one where the pair of you are inseparable. Those kind of loves can last a week, a year or a lifetime. It could be a summer fling or a marriage for the ages. And even if you haven't experienced it yet, there's always time.

LIFESTYLE | JUNE GOALS

june-goals-01

My Masters’ degree is finally over. Well, sort of. I still have a project to do but that’s not due in until September. Now I can get a bit more overtime at work, it means I need to plan everything else around work. I’m lucky that I get my shifts for the whole month and it rarely changes so I can get things put in my diary. I've been given my shifts up until the second week of August which is pretty impressive! It also means that if I want to visit home for the weekend, I can just plan it with work and they let me work more hours during the week to cover.

PERSONAL | THE NEXT CHAPTER

tee-the-next-chapter

Why does the future have to be such a scary place? Yes, it's also super exciting but it's so terrifying too. It's so weird but right now, I'm in a state of limbo. I've just finished my final exam and I've literally no idea about what I'm doing next. I mean, I have my journalism project to do to complete my Master's degree but that's not due until September. But then what? I have my part-time job (where I'll be able to get overtime if I want it) and I have my rent paid up until I have to move out in September; however, it's from that point on that I'm pretty much stuck.

LIFESTYLE | MAY GOALS


How is it May already? 

Yes, I know everyone's been saying it but 2018 is speeding up, I swear! April was a little bit all over the place; one minute it was snowing, then we had tropical sunshine. I can't cope with theses changes since I took all of my winter clothing home already!

PERSONAL | SUNDAY SERIES: HANGING ON


Welcome to the very first post in my brand new Sunday series. I'll be posting every Sunday (obvs) with just my general thoughts for the week and what I've been up to. Some may be just more like a brain-dump, some might be more of a personal, reflective post. I've been saying I wanted to switch up my content so more personal posts is just an idea!

FASHION | SPRING CAPSULE WARDROBE PREP


I've had this post sat in my drafts for a couple of weeks now and was constantly dreaming of spring. Then Snowmaggedon happened and my dreams went out the window. Now it looks like the worst of the snow is over (fingers crossed), I can finally start planning my spring wardrobe!

LIFESTYLE | THE WATCH-LIST: MARCH 2018


Having dealt with snow days and having quite a bit of free time lately, I've spent most nights doing uni work or freelance work whilst watching the TV. I've found that there hasn't been much on actual TV that I've been hooked on so I've stuck to watching a lot of DVDs. How I get through some series so quickly, I do not know. I guess it's because there are no adverts! Here's a look at what I've been watching during March.

LIFESTYLE | APRIL GOALS


Happy Easter Sunday, everyone! I hope your Easter is filled with family and chocolate: the two most important things about Easter for most of us who aren't religious! I haven't written a goals post since Christmas time and I really do think they help me to stay motivated. It's a way of keeping myself on track and holding myself accountable basically! April is a busy month for myself: I have exams, assignments, a new job, new freelance work, a blog to run, theatre shows to attend, events to go to. Packing it all in is going to be a tough task but I like to keep myself busy!

BEAUTY | MY LATEST KIKO MILANO HAUL


Working in Meadowhall and around the corner from Kiko is extremely dangerous for my bank account. Luckily, I work a lot of night shifts so I tend to just go straight from the train to work and then back to the train so I avoid going past it. However, I am all about the motto TREAT YO' SELF so I try to get in every once in a while!

FITNESS | PREPPING FOR A NEW FITNESS CHALLENGE

fitness-challenge-01

It might be Valentine's Day but for me, it's all about loving yourself. How about some self-love instead? Loving yourself can in fact be more difficult than loving others but it is equally, if not more, important. For me, loving myself is all about looking after my health and well-being and that includes keeping fit.

BEAUTY | THE ULTIMATE NAIL COLLECTION: AUTOGRAPH COLOUR FULL DAYS


I have to admit, I'm a nail polish hoarder. I have so many different shades but had to cull over half of my collection when I went cruelty-free (Essie, here's looking at you!). Because I've been researching those brands that are CF, I was thrilled to find that M&S' Autograph range was.

LIFESTYLE | 26 BEFORE 26


Now that I’ve reached a quarter of a century on the planet and am now the wise old age of 25, I really need to start getting my shit together. I’ve always been someone who strives for the best; in fact, my ambition has got in the way of relationships and friendships before with people in my life not wanting me to reach my full potential or reach my dreams.

LIFESTYLE | THE GREATEST SHOWMAN REVIEW

Photo credit
I used to live in the cinema. Well, not literally, but when I was younger, I was there on a weekly basis. In senior school and college, especially during the holidays, I was there multiple times a week. In recent years, the price of cinema tickets has risen and I’ve not had the time to spend a couple of hours watching the big screen.

LIFESTYLE | 24 ACHIEVEMENTS AT 24


Yesterday was an exciting yet equally terrifying day for me: I turned 25! I'm excited to become a proper adult but the idea of being halfway to 50 (as my dad likes to remind me frequently) scares the crap out of me!

BEAUTY | BRAND FOCUS: NO7

bf-boots-01

I've been a fan of No7 for a while now; it's the only brand I buy foundation and mascara from. I've always been a budget, drugstore brand but for certain products, I believe it can be better to pay a little more than a couple of quid if they're what you're looking for.

LIFESTYLE | THE WATCH-LIST: DECEMBER 2017

December is usually a month where I watch a shedload of TV and films; however, with uni deadlines, extra shifts at work plus travelling to and from Sheffield for both Christmas and New Year, I've not watched a great deal!

PERSONAL | 101 IN 1001


Happy New Year everyone!

I'm one of those people who doesn't celebrate New Year itself but who loves any chance of a fresh start. I always use the first couple of days in January to get my shit together, organise my life and try to start how I mean to go on. However, I am also someone who usually fails by the 4th or 5th and has had enough of everything and has a lazy year after that point.
