Christmas 2018 – Wish List and Plans

It is finally December and I can finally not get judged for having my Christmas tree up! Advent has started and I’m absolutely loving my wax melt calendar from Pick ‘N’ Melt! Although I’m not taking part in blogmas this year I wanted to start off the month with a festive post, with a fun wish list of things I would like to receive or that I am treating myself to this year and what my plans are for this years holiday season!…

I’m Getting Help

I’m Getting Help

It feels like it was only yesterday since I walked into the reception at uni on the verge of tears. It was the day of my first personal tutor meeting and I had told myself I wouldn’t cry. I wouldn’t unload everything on my personal tutor. All it took was for him to ask if I was ok and quite frankly I lost it. The night before I had had the meltdown to end all meltdowns and I finally opened…

Alcohol and my Mental Health

Alcohol and my Mental Health

These two are not best buddies. In fact, it is safe to say they are the most uncomfortable pairing known to man. Recently every time I have drunk I have either had a full-blown panic attack or a not so nice wobble. Number one this is really not fair on the people I am with but secondly, these episodes are incredibly exhausting and take me a good few days to recover from. A Decision Because of all of this I…

How I Learnt to Love Myself

How I Learnt to Love Myself

For as long as I can remember I haven’t been confident in the way I look. I never thought I looked good in what I wore and quite simply I just felt awkward. As a child, I dressed in what looked like boys clothes; board shorts and garish t-shirts. As I grew up my fashion sense developed into baggy hoodies and skinny jeans. As the hoodies got baggier my weight increased and then I quite simply hid. I hid behind…

Closing That Door

Closing That Door

The other day I had a dream. I was sat in the refectory and my sister came and sat down next to me. I woke up before we could talk but ever since I have had this niggling feeling in the back of my mind. If you know me or if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know a relationship with my sister is something that doesn’t exist. Am I sad about this? Usually, I…

These items have been gifted but all opinions are my own and I would only ever share products I…

A New Chapter – Freshers Week and Discovering Journalism

A New Chapter – Freshers Week and Discovering Journalism

It feels as if it were only yesterday that I got the email to say I had been given an unconditional offer from The University of Gloucestershire. But on Saturday 8th September I moved into halls. Admittedly I spent the entire journey with tears in my eyes; when my friend had finished helping move all my stuff into my room I cried my eyes out. It was all real. I was finally here and I could finally say I was,…

Independent Buys August 2018

Independent Buys August 2018

It is the end of another month so it is time for another round up of all of the indie goodies I bought! Despite being on a tighter budget this month I really did spoil myself! Bumble and Be I had to start off with what is probably my favourite buy this month! I am a self-confessed Harry Potter obsessive so when I saw that the lovely Sophie had some new gorgeous PygmyPuffs up for adoption I just knew I had…
