The Weirdest Thing About My Period #TalkingPeriods

I had my first period on the 6th September 2006, when I was 12 years old. Don’t even ask why I still remember the date, I’m just cool like that! I really struggled with my period through school: they were really irregular, could be heavy and painful one month then light and pain free the next. I underestimated my flow and ruined a nice pair of pants so many times that I just took to wearing my “period pants” constantly while at school. One thing that was always  ...

Not Everyone Enjoys Their Time At University

So this post is basically inspired by a tweet I saw from the lovely Sophie (PetalsOfPerfection) that said: Beyond excited to graduate… sorry but if anyone says to me that uni years are the best years of my life. YOU ARE WRONG. I couldn’t agree more! I’m so sick of hearing that your days at university are the best of your life, that it’s where you’ll meet your best friends for life and you’ll always wish you could go back. Because it’s just not true  ...

Life Update- August 2017 Roundup

If you’ve been with my blog from the beginning, you might remember waaaay back when I used to do a goals and dear diary style post every month. I kind of fell out of love with them, especially the goals part, so I stopped writing them. Well today I’m bringing them back…kind of! I’ve been thinking about doing a weekly roundup post for a while now (either on my blog or as a separate newsletter) but I quickly realised I might not have the time to do one  ...

Technic Cosmetics Brush Cleaner Review

If theres one thing I am ridiculously bad at doing, it’s cleaning my makeup brushes. I know its a must but I always end up forgetting, especially as in this heat I’ve just been applying a BB cream from Kiko with a blending sponge, rather than a full coverage foundation. So when Technic Cosmetics sent me over their new brush cleaner to try, I knew I couldn’t put off cleaning them any longer. I’m so lazy at times it unreal. Now until now I’ve just been using a Superdrug own brand spray to  ...

What I’ve Learnt From One Year of Blogging

So once again I’ve proved that I’m an idiot: when I first started blogging I didn’t bother to record the date I stared it on, so I had no idea when my blogiversary was! I knew it was some point in June but not a clue on the date. Now any normal person would have just written this post in advance and waited until the WordPress notification telling them it was their anniversary, then just upload the post that same day. Easy! Not me. In all fairness this was my original plan  ...

Surviving University When You Have a Mental Health Condition

One of my teachers once said that I soak up knowledge like a sponge and in all fairness, she’s not far wrong! I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with education: I love learning but I’ve always hated the school environment. From the day I started school to the day I walked out of my final exam, I was bullied & it’s had a pretty big impact on the rest of my life. I’ve already covered that little sob story in this post here so I won’t go all that  ...

My Experience At Boots Opticians & Why I Hate Wearing Glasses

I’m one of those lucky gals who had to wear glasses. Day in, day out since I was 4 years old. I remember there was a fashion trend a few years ago where people would wear fake glasses and all I can remember thinking is “why would you wear them if you don’t have to?!” I hate wearing mine, they’re just so inconvenient! I can’t wear false eyelashes (well I can’t put them on without nearly gluing my eyes shut anyway but, yano, if I could then I  ...

I’m Not A Fan Of Halloween

Okay so I’m a bit of a Scrooge (or whatever the equivalent is) where Halloween is concerned. I’ve always thought I was the only one as it seems everyone else loves it, but thanks to Twitter I now know that there are a few other people out there that agree with me. Not many, but at least I’m not on my own. I just don’t do horror. At all. I have a seriously over active imagination and in all honesty I just don’t understand the concept of frightening yourself for  ...

“Anxiety &” Series List

For the last month or so now I've been running a series on this blog called "Anxiety &", which basically covers a bunch of topics that can cause anxiety. The point of this series is two fold: I want to give advice to people who may struggle with anxiety, to try and help them cope in that situation, but also to try and give out the massage that you aren't alone. I remember when I was growing up I always felt like I was weird because certain things caused me anxiety but didn't anyone  ...
