Starting At A New College/University?! Read on...

Hey peeps,
Seeing as it is the time for starting at school, college and university; I thought it would be perfect timing for me to talk a little about my tips/advice for starting somewhere new; specifically a residential place. We all know how excited, scary and apprehensive it is when starting somewhere new hence why I'm doing this blog post. It was fifteen years ago when I first went to a residential college, I was just sixteen years old and it was my first proper time away from home besides my many hospital stays. The college I went to was Beaumont College and it is run by Scope. I was a student there for three years and I made memories that will stay with me for a lifetime.
As it was residential and I was very lucky in having my own room, I was able to take whatever I wanted with me. I wanted to create a space that was my own and felt like home, so I had photo frames of my friends and family. I had posters up on the walls (the walls were bare!) and I also had my own bedding. I t…

My First Beauty Post

Hey Peep,
Yesterday I bought the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation and decided I wanted to try it today. Many people I know have a 'Day' foundation and another one for special occasions which is usually more expensive. I recently started using my Make Up Forever foundation and it is soon going down. I love it! It doesn't smell funny and has a lovely coverage. It feels nice and light on my skin. It's also a good match for my skin which is important. Now this Rimmel one is great for just every day wear and I much rather spend £8 or £9 regularly than £40+ which I think the Make Up Forever costs. Here is my #motd look for today 😊 Hope you like it!

Knowing Oneself's Worth

Hey peeps!
I really need to be more consistent with my blogging and I truly wish I was. The main reason why I am not is because I struggle with fatigue. It's something that I'm coming to terms with but I know with my terrible sleeping pattern; this doesn't help matters!
Right now, I'll give you a brief summary of what I've been up to since my last post. There's been birthdays (including my own), appointments, catching up with friends and spending quality time with my family... can you believe my niece is now six months old (today)?
On personal matters, I have been trying to understand myself that bit more. Ever since I went to senior school, I have been plagued with having a lack of confidence and self esteem, and I want to change that. I know my self worth. I think anyone can understand when I say that some of it is in our own heads. We may experience difficult times that leave an after-affect on us; for example I always felt like I was awkward and didn't r…
