21 things I’ve learned at 21

So, I turned 21 a couple of months ago meaning I’m now officially an adult so I need to sort my life out and that I can legally drink in America which came in handy when I went to NYC a few weeks ago 😝 Let’s be honest here though, I love having a drink. There’s nothing quite like being wine drunk on a Monday night with your best pals 💞 I’ve been thinking about something to post for a few days, especially as I’ve had a huge loss of motivation because I’ve been really unwell, stressed with uni and just generally stuck in a bit of a rut, so I thought, why not write about some things that I’ve learned as I’ve moved from teen to adult? Keep reading 👉🏽 1. Sometimes you just have to cut people out of your life in order to progress 2. Getting a tattoo didn’t hurt half as much as I thought it would 3. Learning to be comfortable in your own skin is one of the most …

Autumn Playlist

AUTUMN. IS. HERE. Sorry, I felt the need to capitalise that statement because I’m *so* very excited about my favourite time of the year being in full swing. Sure, Halloween is over but that doesn’t mean the spooky celebrations have to stop. In fact, I’m about to go watch Hocus Pocus so spooky it up, folks! On the other hand, Christmas is next month so maybe get cosy and watch an iconic Christmas film like The Elf? I dont know, you do you.  Anyway, whilst we’re on the topic of Halloween I may aswell share a pic of my Halloween outfit (any excuse, right?) I spent a good deal of time planning my costume not to mention the dangers I experienced whilst getting ready! I literally got glitter in my eyes. Yep. I went as a devil, duh. OK I’m done! Let’s back to the actual topic of this blog: providing you with a fiyah Autumn playlist 🔥 1. DVSN – Don’t Choose 2. Mabel – Ivy 3. Krept & Konan – For Me 4. Tom Odell – …

My Final Year of Uni

Guys, I am SCARED to graduate and enter adult life. It seems like only yesterday I was sleeping in, watching too much tv and doing absolutely nothing with my life. Wait, that WAS yesterday. But still, you know what I mean. Life is about to hit me hard and honestly, I’m not ready for it. What I’m going to do with my life is a question that crosses my mind a million times a day yet I still manage to find new ways to avoid dealing with it (like spending 3 hours researching which new face mask to buy) … a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. 🤷🏻‍♀️ My life might be a shambles, but I WILL have clear skin! Moving on, I have some big choices to make about my future which realistically should already be made but they’re not, and I’m ok with it. I don’t want to rush into something that I regret and I also want to spend a little time enjoying my life education free. In the words …

October Favourite: Rescue Remedy

Hello lovelies! How are you? I’ve recently arrived home from a week in Spain and besides from getting busy tanning and swimming with tropical fish, I did struggle with a little bit of anxiety in the airport.  I love going on holiday, but I’m not a huge fan of airports (apart from duty free shopping, obviously) so when Rescue Remedy offered to send me out a few products to try, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them!  Rescue Remedy specialise in creating products to aid in soothing anxiety and I found their products to be extremely effective and they’re something I’ll be using regularly from now on!  Keep reading to see what I got sent 👇🏼 1. Soothing Pastilles  These work. I took one as I left to go to the airport because I was feeling anxious and after about 10 minutes I felt a lot more at ease and relaxed. If you suffer with anxiety I can’t recommend these enough! Though they are not a cure, they really do help ease symptoms of …

I love BESSIE and you should too

Hello all! Welcome back to my little corner of the world.   I recently became a blogger for BESSIE (an amazing company that make bags) and to put it bluntly, I am obsessed! Their beautiful creations are heart eye emoji, affordable and completely unique.   The flowers, the colours, the people What draws me most to BESSIE is the clear love and dedication that has gone into making this beautiful brand a reality. The sheer passion behind BESSIE is the ultimate driving force propelling this brand forward, and you can’t help but appreciate it for what it is – sophisticated, stylish and smart.  They recently hooked me up with a stunning new bag and I think I might be in love. Actually, scrap that, I AM in love.  As soon as I got home from work I rushed to the huge cardboard box in my passage and was not disappointed. I opened it up to discover the most GORGEOUS bag I have ever seen in my life. Seriously, it’s perfect. Wanna see pics? Of course you do. Keep …

New Look Shopping Haul 

Hello lovelies!  Autumn is coming but my summer isn’t over just yet because I’m going to Spain at the end of the month! I NEED new clothes (and a tan) 💃🏻 I bought a few things from my faves New Look recently.  They have an amazing deal on right now (buy one item get one free) and my bank account is hurting because of it. Oops.  Keep reading to see a few styles I’m loving right now and what I bought!  I’m so in love with this dress! I got it for the bargain price of £10 and honestly, I’m obsessed.  I’m planning on wearing this during the evenings in Spain as I feel it’s a little more formal and sophisticated. Plus, there’s no point in making much of an effort with my appearance during the day as I have more important things to do, like sunbathe. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I think that a pair of heeled sandals are the perfect option for this outfit as it’s a midi dress and the extra height balances out the proportions.  …

How to Stay Motivated, Happy and Healthy at University

Hey guys! I can’t believe it, but I’m about to become a… third year. HELP. I’m finally starting to enter the dreaded world of adulthood and life is coming at me FAST. It’s chill tho. Looking back, having to pick a degree to undertake at the age of 17 seems absolutely ridiculous seeing as I’m now nearly 21 and still none the wiser on what I want to do. Maybe its just me, but the pressure placed on me at such a young age was terrifying and stressful, and I ended up picking a course that I enjoyed, not so much wanted to pursue a career in. To top it off, university isn’t something that I’ve massively clicked with and the majority of my university experience so far has been spent in coffee shops whilst I skip a seminar, or out with my friends doing anything other than studying. I’ve really struggled to stay motivated and interested in my course. However, I’m going into my final year and I’m determined to throw myself into my …
