It’s coming up to exam season for me. I’ve just finished my lectures for this semester, and I’m now officially in study leave, and my first exam is in 3 weeks, and PANIC. So, in true procrastination fashion, I’m writing a blog post instead of attending to my massive list to-do list. To try and keep myself in the study mindset, I thought I’d gather all my study essentials together and talk you through them.
Whether you just love stationery or you’re about to sit exams yourself – hopefully you’ll enjoy this post!
Hi lovelies, and welcome to my April bullet journal set-up! I’m not very arty, and so my bullet journal isn’t as beautiful as most bloggers and YouTubers out there. Actually, I’ve always used mine more like a diary rather than a bullet journal, but I am starting to make more of a effort to plan out my month and stay organised.
Not only is it calming to take some time out to draw and plan the month ahead, but it can also keep you on track for any goals you have for that month. Since my exams start at the end of April, I have more of a study theme for my journal this time round. Since my timetable will fluctuate depending on how much I achieved the previous day, I haven’t planned out the entire month just yet, but only week 1, however I will be keeping the same layout each week. Also, I mentioned that I use my journal as a diary, too – another reason I keep space at the end of each weekly spread as well.
So, let’s get into it!
I popped into Lush last month and got myself a couple of products I had never tried before, at the recommendation of one of the girls working there. It was a quiet day in the shop so she was very helpful and tried the products out on my hand! (I love this! It’s like a mini spa treatment that only lasts a few minutes, but I feel so relaxed afterwards.) She also talked me through all the benefits and how she personally uses them! So, I thought it would be fun to do a Lush products review on what I picked up for you.
Last month I went to a Vintage Kilo Sale in Edinburgh where you pick up as many items as you want and pay by kilo rather than for each individual item. Hence the vintage clothing haul!
I went with my best friend Abbi (her blog is over here if you want to check her out) ((I don’t know why I’m shouting her out because she is SO more experienced and popular than me but she is AMAZING so I can’t not)) and maybe went a bit crazy with the spending…
However, it was totally worth it as I picked up some really cute pieces – a few of which I’ve worn multiple times, already – so I thought I’d share them with you guys!
Hello lovelies! Today I’ll be taking you through some of the places on my travel bucket list.
I’ve been very lucky to have parents that took me away on holiday every summer to loads of different places. However I still wouldn’t say I’m “well-travelled”, but I’d like to be. Most of those holidays were your classic sitting by the pool, being shoved off to Kids Club in the hope that mum and dad would get some relaxation time for at least a few hours. (They didn’t; sorry mum, dad, I was never good at separation). A few of them, as I grew older, were more exciting. There was more exploring involved, and we even started going on snow sports holidays which was a nice change of pace.
Last summer I went inter-railing through Europe with my friend from Uni. If anyone were to ask me what my greatest moment/achievement/experience of my life was, it would be that. I found my taste for travelling when I was there, and it really was a self-finding experience but on a more chilled level than you expect. It wasn’t as if I found a whole new me, but I definitely learned a lot and improved on myself because of it.
After that experience, I now want to visit so many more countries and places. So I made my travel bucket list! It will be forever growing no doubt, this is just the start of my journey, but I’d love to share a few of the places off my list that I hope to visit soon.
