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  ...

Lush Cosmetics Giveaway

So this is it, I’m running my first ever give away! This is just a really quick post to let you know all the rules and such that I won’t be able to fit in the pinned tweet. Not going to lie I was going to buy a shit ton of Harry Potter merchandise since this is going live on the 1st September, but I couldn’t find enough House neutral items. Getting pretty sick of the Gryffindor bias. So instead I decided to pick up a selection of Lush products. Not just any products- these  ...

6 Ways To Practice Self Care During Winter

A lot of people really struggle with depression during the winter months, which means practicing self care is a must! It can be hard to know where to start though, especially when it’s dark for most of the day and the weather is so wet even a duck wouldn’t love it. I had a full blown meltdown yesterday and I’m still feeling the effects today, so this is going to be a bit of a shorter one than I’d usually post. I had my driving lesson this morning and while my  ...

Learning To Accept Who I Really Am- #ILiveItIBlogIt

Fair warning: this is one of those really rambling posts that I just sort of wrote, rather than planned out in advance. If it doesn’t seem to make much sense- sorry in advance! One of the main problems with blogging is that there seems to be this expectation for everyone to be exactly the same. Everyone should love the same things, write about the same products, have the same opinions…the list just goes on. I went through a stage of trying to be like that and it nearly made me quit  ...

How To Combat A Fear Of Going To The Dentists

I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t terrified of going to the dentists. To me all I associate them with is a lot of pain and fear: just the smell or the sound of a drill can make my palms sweaty and send my heart rate into overdrive! When I was little we used to get reminder cards through the post ever year and occasionally I’d be the one to find them first…so I’d hide them in my room in the hopes that they’d forget to go that year! It sounds so bad but  ...

What To Expect When Sitting Your Theory Test For The First Time

So unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week (or you know, don’t follow me on social media) you’ll know that this week I sat my theory test and passed it first time! I can’t explain how happy and hyper I still am about this, I’d been panicking about it for nearly a month and honestly expected myself to fail. Thats not because I thought I would as such, its just a coping technique I use to make sure I don’t become overconfident and also stops depression taking over if I do  ...

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  ...

Little Life Update: Why I Took a Break From The Internet

So as you may have noticed, I’ve been pretty much absent from both my blog and social media over the past two weeks. There are a couple of reasons why and I thought I’d take this time to give you all a little life update and explain my absence at the same time. Two birds, one stone. So first up- I’ve got my theory test coming up next week! I’m absolutely terrified that I won’t pass first time but I’ve passed all of the practice tests I’ve taken for  ...
