My Skincare Must-Haves



Skincare and taking care of my skin is important to me. Everything has an impact on skin; what you eat, drink, and especially what you use for it. These three products help me with not breaking out.

What's in my Bag?

I think I may win the award for the most useless stuff carried in a handbag, but not this time!

I had a clear-out, and decided to show you what's in my bag.
Face powder, keys, hair tie, hand cream, and hand gel.

On being #teamnatural...



In 2012, I made the decision to stop relaxing my hair. For those not aware, relaxing is chemically straightening your natural hair, so it is free from its curls and coils. For many people, especially those with small children, it makes styling and caring for hair much much easier. However, I stopped this because I watched a video on Youtube of a woman who went to get her hair relaxed, only for it to go horribly wrong and fall out...

Hello again...


Unbelievable! 

It's been almost a year since I last wrote a blog post, and embarrassment does not even begin to cover how I feel right now. 

First and foremost, the main reason I stopped blogging was because I had no new ideas to bring to the internet. I felt like every idea had already been exhausted, and I had nothing new to bring to the table. I felt insecure in my writing abilities, and the posts I was making were not up to scratch. So, I decided to just quit. When September came and I started my second year of sixth form, I had no time to blog, as I was focusing on improving upon my AS year. 

Which brings me to where we are today. I finished my exams last month, and I've been school-free since then! The freedom was exciting, and the prospect of blogging again crept up to me, and I've decided to start blogging again! I'm going to completely revamp my layout and make it into something I would be happy to read and write. 

Since my last blog post, I've discovered new things I'm excited to share in future posts. I'm waiting for the 18th of August (eek!) and confirmation as to whether I will be going to university in September or not. 

I hope you all enjoy what is to come!

My 2015 Goals Re-Visited!



We're (more than) halfway through 2015, and I thought I'd do a quick catch-up on the goals I wanted to achieve this year. If you cast your minds back to this blog post, you'll remember I gave myself 5 goals to achieve by December.

Writing an Effective To-Do List



I don't know about you, but I cannot get through a day without referring to my to-do list. What started as small scribbles on my hand have evolved into long lists in my notebook, that (hopefully!) by the end of the day are ticked, highlighted, or crossed off. Now, I think I have mastered the art of making effective to-do lists.

Homespiration Monday #5!



Parisian decor, anyone?

This week's Homespiration is inspired by, obviously, Paris! I have a huge love for Parisian style, especially the homeware.

New Look Wishlist







Long time no see?

Exams are finally over, and I am at last free to breathe! I took time off to focus on both my mock exams, and my real exams, which I finished on Thursday last week.

So, it's back to the ol' grind!
