My University Experience

So if you’re reading this and you’re getting your A-level results today and thinking about university, good luck and congratulations! University will be a time in your life where you really do discover who you are and what you want in life. Before I go all philosophical on you guys, let me share a bit about my university experience. This time, two years ago, I was at my college getting my A-level results at 8am praying I’d got into my first choice uni, Salford. When I got  ...

Book Review: The Everygirl’s Guide To Life

See, I even bookmark my favourite pages! This is my Bible. And the author, Maria Menounos is one of my idols. It covers everything a girl/woman would need from organising your living space to beauty and fashion, love to health and fitness.

I struggle to wear anything high-waisted as I have a bum and no waist. I  ...

Yesterday’s Mini-Beauty Haul

Despite being at work all day yesterday, I did manage to squeeze in a small spree. Because I get two half-hour dinner breaks, I don’t have time to venture out into the clothes shops as they’re all too far away but my local Wilko is a two-minute walk. I’ve seen several bloggers mention a new brand Essence that has just launched in the UK so I took it upon myself to visit its only stockist, Wilko! It’s a place I often go for my beauty and skincare products as I find  ...
