What I got for Christmas 2016

As I did a 'What I got for my birthday' I thought it would only be right to show you some of what I got for Christmas! I know you've probably read this so many times but I'm not in any way bragging about what I got I just love these posts and know you guys do too!

Brother vs Sister - Blogmas Day 23

Christmas is about spending time with your family and loved ones, there is nothing I love more than coming home for Christmas and spending it with my younger brother and sister! Blogmas Day 23 was the only one that I hadn't written yet and I really wasn't feeling the idea that I had! So I thought what better way to celebrate family Christmas than to put my brother and sister head to head and see who knows me best, haha!

The Christmas Tag 2.0

So I know I've already done the Christmas Tag during Blogmas but my lovely friend Katie tagged me in a different one so I thought why not do it again?! So here's an extra little Christmas Tag treat!

DIY Christmas crackers - Blogmas Day 22

I love doing crafts at Christmas its such a nice way to chill out and have fun! My housemates and I decided as we weren't making Christmas dinner this year that we would make crackers to pull before we open our table presents once we are back from our meal! So we went to The Works and picked up a cracker making kit, they have loads of different ones and they're only £3.

My top 6 Festive lipsticks - Blogmas Day 21

The Christmas season isn't complete without Festive make up, lipstick especially. The traditional Christmas lip is bright red but if you're like me that doesn't really like wearing red lipstick finding an alternative can be difficult. So I've made it easier for you by posting my 6 favourites, please bear in mind that I'm an Avon Rep so most of these are Avon lipsticks you can buy them here! I've also lost every lip liner I own and my lips felt like they were going to fall off by the end of this, I've never moisturised so much in my life, so in some photos the lipstick isn't perfect!

Going to the garden centre - Blogmas Day 18

One of my favourite things to do at Christmas is to go to the garden centre! I've always gone with my grandparents and parents and as I've grown up my younger siblings and cousins have come with us so I'm able to vicariously live in the magical moment through them! We had a magazine for our local garden centre posted through the door and we got so excited that we decided to go when the Reindeer arrived, even if it was a 3 mile walk! So for Blogmas day 18 I thought I would show you my favourite pictures that we took while we were there! Enjoy and get yourself to a garden centre if you haven't already!

Tips for Christmas present wrapping - Blogmas Day 5

If you're like me and present wrapping is the worst part about Christmas then this post is for you! As much as I love wrapping presents I'm just not very good at it, I'm not terrible but it could be better and I'm a perfectionist! So rather than stressing over how shoddy my wrapping can be I use things to detract from the paper itself! Today I'm going to let you into my present wrapping secrets!

Hump Day shopping haul!

Versatile Blogger Award!

It's been a while...

I really took a knock with my blog last month, I absolutely loved the last post I wrote but every time I've wrote something since I've felt like its been utter codswallop. I read so many other peoples blogs and always compare mine to theirs and criticise my own because theirs are 'so much better'. After a long chat with my housemates they managed to convince me that mine wasn't utter crap and who gives a shit if it isn't as pretty or savvy as others, people from all over the world are here to read what I write. So I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has took their time to read my little corner of the internet! There's big things coming so keep your eyes peeled!

Rainy day outfit!

Today we've had the most disgusting weather in Cambridge, its been wet and dreary and just before we went to take these photos we had a flash hail storm and a few claps of thunder! To make myself feel a bit better about the shitty weather I decided I was going to put my face and a pretty dress on.

Why I love my job!

Sometimes its so easy to get caught up in the negativity of things and not look at the positives, especially when it comes to your job or education. I know some days all I do is moan about my job and the past week or so its all I've done. This week hasn't been the best week at work, things haven't gone to plan and one lady even made me cry with how rude she was to me! So I thought I would write about why I love my job so when I'm having a shitty week I can look back on this and remember why!

Facing your fears

Today I thought I would share with your my thoughts on fears and how you face them. I'm the kind of person who is scared of everything, anything smaller than a rabbit, except birds, creeps me the hell out, I'm a massive wuss but my biggest fear is spiders. Its something I've been scared of for as long as I can remember and its in no way a nice fear to have as I'm 99% sure they can smell your fear and harass you even more because of that.

Lucy Spraggan concert review

So a little while back I said I was going to see Lucy Spraggan and might do a concert review, now it's been a little while since I saw her but I've decided to write it tonight while sat listening to 'Top Room At The Zoo' eating caramel digestives. I saw her on the 23rd February at the Cambridge Junction. I went with my flatmate Laura as she is really into the whole 'gigging scene' and we had never been to the Junction before so we wanted to check it out as a venue, it's literally a stone throw from where we live and want to use it as an opportunity to find new local music.

When will we act and start saving our world?!

The other day I was sat scrolling through Facebook and came across a post on one of my hometowns forum pages, a newspaper article stating that the town are petitioning for more burial/cemetery space. This is obviously such a controversial topic and the people on the post are all talking and debating about it, but one person really stood out to me with what they were saying, about their right to be buried.

Gone Girl book and film review

Today I've decided I'm going to do something a little bit different to what's normally on here, I'm going to review the book and film 'Gone Girl'. I absolutely love reading but since I've moved to uni I have just abandoned reading and I was really starting to miss being able to relax with a book so I went charity shop hunting for books as this is such a good place to buy them especially if you're not sure you're going to like them as its only a few pounds max that you're going to spend.

My university experience...

So I'm currently sat in bed scrolling through and refreshing Facebook&Twitter trying to entertain myself which at 1 in the morning isn't really working as most normal people are asleep at this time so I decided to be productive and write a blog post! This post is about the whole process I went through to get to where I am now!

Wednesday, 6 January 2016


Today is one of those days where I just don't want to face the world, I want to switch everything off and just be left alone but on the other hand, I want someone here to comfort me and tell me that everything is going to be okay! :(

What is this feeling?

Lately I've been feeling really uninspired about writing on this blog, I've got numerous posts sat in my drafts that I haven't published because I don't feel like they're good enough or like they are the wrong sort of content to post on a blog and people would judge them and then I sat with my Chummy last night talking about it and I decided that this is my blog, its my outlet and I'll post what I want, no matter what people think of it! I also got a new laptop for Christmas so its a hell of a lot easier to blog now! So I'm back!
