OCTOBER INSTAGRAM ROUND UP.

Monday, 31 October 2016

I've been meaning to start this blog series for ages. I thought it would be a interesting to actually show you guys what I get up to in my personal life (not like it's necessarily that interesting at the moment) and I can always keep it as a diary for myself to look back on. So here is a little round up of what went down this month! 

HOW TO DO HALLOWEEN, WHEN YOU'RE TOO OLD FOR TRICK OR TREATING.

Either you've become too old for trick or treating and have no younger siblings to chaperone , or are now a full-time adult and can't spend your evening downing bloody Mary's next to the Joker in the pub. Halloween is probably my favourite holiday so I believed it should be spent in the spirit whether you're going out or staying home. Here are some ideas for a fun filled halloween in the comfort of your (or somebody els's) home.


10 MOVIES THAT WILL SPARK SOME SERIOUS WANDERLUST.

Saturday, 29 October 2016

The only thing that sucks about autumn is the fact that university takes priority and travelling has to take a back seat for a while, so the best thing to do in the meantime is watch other people having fun on holiday and make plans for next year. My personal favourites have always been those that involve some sort of road trip through America with a sick playlist and a bunch of pals #futuregoals. Anyway here's a list of some of my favourite travel movies that will make you want to drop everything and get on a plane! 

THE KEY TO BEING TRULY HAPPY, OR AT LEAST SOMETHING CLOSE TO IT.

Thursday, 27 October 2016

It seems that all my deep and meaningful blog posts seem to stem from my sadness. Okay that's a bit of an exaggeration, but the times that I feel upset, angry or hurt are when most of my ideas seem to blossom. After having a bit of a breakdown tonight because of a combination of stress, grieving and anger towards the world, I finally calmed down, turned on some Lana Del Rey and opened up blogspot to create this post. Here's a list of things I've compiled that I think I need to remember once in a while, and for you guys to keep in mind too.


TEA WITH AMY | WHAT'S IT LIKE TO BE A PUBLISHED AUTHOR?

Saturday, 22 October 2016

When I made my bucket list for 2016, one of the things on there was to start writing a book, but it's now October and I still haven't got round to it. One young lady who managed to do just that and get it published is Amy M. I caught up with her to find out all about her book Mother's Milk, which is filled with a series of gory short stories to do with motherhood and all about the process of it from beginning to end. 

PRODUCT REVIEW | SKINCEUTICALS' PHYTO CORRECTIVE MASQUE.

Thursday, 20 October 2016

Hi guys! It's been a while since I've done a product review and the lovely people at Dermacare Direct reached out to me about reviewing one of their new products. I love changing up my skincare products after a couple of months and the Phyto Corrective Masque definitely intrigued me, I mean it's green! If you travel often, are sporty or simply suffer from red face syndrome, then this might be the product you need to add to your shelf. 



TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF AT UNIVERSITY & KEEPING A POSITIVE STATE OF MIND.

Sunday, 16 October 2016

Every university student can probably refer you to a time where they've been sat crying in bed with 10 sheets of paper in front of them and two cups of coffee. University might be the best years of your life, but that's not to say it doesn't come with its hardships and blood, sweat and tears (slight exaggeration). It's so easy to get caught under the workload and feel like you physically and mentally can't cope anymore and with it being Mental Health Day last week, I wanted to make this post to highlight how your state of mind is just as important as your physical wellbeing. Having dealt with depression in the past, I know the worst thing you can do is not tell anyone what's going on and just try to keep going on with your day to day life even though its killing you inside, or locking yourself up in your room and staying in bed all day. I know this post won't solve every problem, but I hope it can give you a little pick me up when you need it! 

SURVIVING UNIVERSITY; KEEPING YOURSELF MOTIVATED AND ORGANISED.

Tuesday, 11 October 2016

The fact I'm writing this blog post instead of reading my dissertation handbook means I probably need to read this post more than anyone else, but I need to motivate myself too! Having spent a semester away and then going on placement for a year means that my days of referencing and citing journals seems like forever ago, so you can say getting my nose back into an academic book hasn't been the easiest. If you're just starting out or are well into your time at university, here are a couple of tips for time management and getting through uni! 

10 PEOPLE CONFESS THE PETTIEST THING THEY'VE EVER DONE.

Sunday, 9 October 2016

I'm probably the queen of being petty - all those posts on Buzzfeed relating to petty people are all me. I mean I wouldn't go as far as to throw everyones food in the office away like that guy did because somebody ate his sandwich, nevertheless it was still hilarious to read. Which is why I thought It would be very entertaining to ask you guys what some of the pettiest things you've ever done are. As always, one of my stories is hidden in there somewhere and if you know me well, you'll be familiar with it. 

SPENDING QUALITY TIME WITH YOURSELF & ENJOYING YOUR OWN COMPANY.

Thursday, 6 October 2016

Being alone doesn't mean you have to be lonely, I consider myself to be quite the extrovert and even though I don't like to be alone with my thoughts for extended periods of time, I do quite enjoy the odd evening or day to myself. I for one find I can't go on a shopping spree if I'm with a friend, I either get bored waiting around for them or feel like they're waiting on me and I can't spend 20 minutes in Urban Outfitters picking up every book. When I moved back to Bournemouth mid September most of my friends still weren't down yet and my housemate Meg was still away galavanting around Canada, so I had to find ways to entertain myself and here are some of the things I found/find most enjoyable and relaxing. 

5 THINGS TO GET EXCITED ABOUT IN OCTOBER.

Tuesday, 4 October 2016

October is probably one of my favourite months. Mostly because Halloween is my favourite holiday, but also everything just seems to start making sense again and I'm finally back into a routine with University and life in general. If some of you are still feeling a bit glum because summer is finally over and you now have to crack on with work, here are a couple of things to look forward to this month!
