    Pre-Christmas Checklist | Blogmas Day 11

    Christmas is creeping up on us at an alarming rate and with just 2 weeks to go it’s time to be thinking about those last minute preparations that somebody always forgets. This year I’m feeling reasonably organised, I’ve wrapped all my presents and written most of my cards so hopefully there will be no last minute present buying for me! So here’s a little reminder of some things you might still have left to do! Wrap all your presents Some people will already have everything wrapped, others will leave it all until Christmas Eve, each to there own. I sit firmly in the first camp, me and Amy sat and…

    How To Stay Organised

    Ask anyone I know and they’ll tell you I’m a pretty organised person, I have a diary, I take my readily prepared lunch to work with me and I know where I need to be…but what happens when I let this slip? Despite appearances, half of the time i do not have my shit together, I have been known to finish an assignment half an hour before the deadline only to have to run to uni to hand it in, or miss a whole week of blog posts as I had failed to manage my time and schedule far enough in advance.

Now that I’m in my 3rd year I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what essentials you actually need whilst at Uni and what is a waste of money. Over the next couple of weeks I’m planning a Back to Uni series so if you have any requests or questions please let…

    What to Pack for a Festival

    We are well and truly into festival season here in the UK, we’ve already seen Isle of Wight and Glastonbury pass us by, but we still have a few left to see us through the bank holiday weekend, including my favourite, Leeds Festival. Having attended 5 festivals (including Leeds 3 times) I feel like I’m pretty damn experienced and have got the essential packing list down. In this post I’ll share my top tips and packing essentials to tackle the great British weather. If you’re from the US and are used to the likes of Coachella, just close this post now, you will be baffled by the need for 10…

    Makeup Collection and Storage

    So as some of you may have seen in my recent New Room Tour, I have slightly altered my makeup storage since moving house. Not only that but I have seriously streamlined my collection to contain only products that I absolutely love, so today I thought I would talk you through my makeup collection. If I had told my past self that all my makeup would fit in and around 1 set of drawers and a basket in 2017 I would have laughed. I have had a passion for makeup since leaving school, I loved reading about it, wearing it, playing about with it to create new looks, I just…
