25 Things #2

Back in the day, ’50 Facts About Me’ posts did the rounds and unable to think of fifty things about myself, I wrote 25 things here. However, that was two years ago and since then a few more things have happened! As there’s been an abundance of beauty related posts this summer, I thought this…

If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of, it’s creative journals. Nothing get the creative juices flowing better than a unique notebook with exciting pages. Perhaps that’s just the organisation freak within me, but hopefully you’ll know what I mean! Here’s some great ones I’ve found on the net recently… A Five Year Memory…

What better way to inspire you today, than share four of my favourite reads with you… Cider with Rosie I discovered Rosie’s blog a while ago, and have since…

Siblings and Secondary School

Almost Famous Take 2

Back in October 2012 I headed to Almost Famous with Matt and a few friends (post here). Unfortunately they had a fire a few months back and had to close, now they’re back up and running. So previously Almost Famous was in some obscure building in Northern Quarter, a building that could easily be mistaken…

Eva Solo Tea Maker – aka the best invention ever.

Eva  Solo Tea Maker £52.99 I’ve got a tea-maker. This might not seem like a big thing for you normals out there, but for tea fiends like myself this is a fabulous creation that I can’t seem to prize my mitts away from at the moment! The Eva Solo Tea Maker is the ideal size…

Nokia Lumia 925 Review

A fortnight ago I was given the opportunity to try out the Nokia Lumia 925*. At the time I was looking to renew my contract so said yes as I thought it might be worth seeing if I’d want to get it. It turns out I ended up going for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini…

Managing Workload at University

Starting a new course at university can feel like you’re a small fish in a huge pond, and the workload piling on doesn’t make this any easier. It doesn’t have to be as daunting as it seems though, and I found that keeping organised removed unnecessary stress and worry from my university life. Keeping a…
