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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

7 Places I Want To Travel To Before I’m 30

I spent my childhood watching all the other kids going off on holiday every year while I stayed at home and, in all honesty, I never cared. My parents couldn't afford to go on holiday. We never had much money while I was growing up and they never saw the appeal of spending what bit of spare money we had on holidays. As such that's how I grew up: having no interest in holidays...until I discovered Pinterest!

Anxiety and Shopping

Shopping can be wonderful, especially if you’re meeting up with your friends, having a look round at things you’ll never be able to afford and then go sit with a coffee and have a good old fashioned catch up and gossip. The problems can start when you need to go shopping on your own and when you have anxiety.

Dear Diary: So Much For Organised

Oh my days, this week has tested me more than any other! You would think that going to one of the largest and highly recommended universities in the North that they would be organised. Ha, no! Not even close. As I've mentioned on here I got accepted onto the Digital Media Production course, straight on second year (level 5) as I'd already done two years of graphic design. As such I needed the direct entry timetable which would put me in with the other level 5s. Did they send me  ...

Beat the Kink Bobble Review

For months all I've seen and heard about is the Invisibobble and I have to admit I was intrigued. Now that my hair has grown to the point where can (finally!) start tying it back, I realised that I actually needed to invest in some new hair bobbles- most of my old ones seem to have gone for a walk. The pet hate that I've always had with traditional bobbles is that they kink your hair. Since I have very thin hair I only have to have it back in a ponytail for a few minutes for this to  ...

Anxiety & Travelling

I did a post last month on eBay and Anxiety, after I started selling a few things on there myself and realised it triggered my anxiety quite badly.  I think this post actually got featured on Bloglovin as I woke up one morning with 40 odd views on that post- all referred from Bloglovin! This was absolutely amazing and by the end of the day I had over 90 views on this one post, weeks after I originally released it!  This got me thinking about other things that can trigger anxiety and I came  ...
