Back to Blogging


Hi everyone! I apologise for the lack of posts recently but I had two essays due in for the taught component of my masters so I’ve been a bit busy getting those done! Hopefully you’ve seen me around on Twitter though – unfortunately I wasn’t able to resist the lures of scrolling through my Twitter feed!

So the taught component of my masters is over, and now I have until October (or January if I take the free extension) to do my dissertation. I will let you know how I get on with that with updates from time to time. Would anyone who’s considering doing a masters after their undergraduate degree like to see a post about the differences?

I have a couple of events and products that I want to blog about this week, so there will be lots of lovely new posts to sink your teeth in to. I’ve also got a giveaway coming up so if you’re going on holiday this year you might want to keep an eye out for that!

I’ve got a really good couple of months ahead of me, lots of events planned and things! Tomorrow I’m hosting a Macmillan Night In with my mum, which a few companies have kindly donated gifts for so I will be doing a post on that and letting you know how much we raise! The aim is £100 but hopefully we will get more!

I’m headed to an event by Oriflame on Saturday in Leeds, I haven’t travelled to Leeds by train before so I’m slightly nervous but I’m sure I will be fine! I will be there again at the end of May too for the Leeds May Meet, as well as an event called House of Fashion. I’ve also got a Pandora eventand a Laundry Boutique event in my calender, I love having a packed diary!

Finally, my dad and my stepmum have finally adopted two lovely girls who I am enjoying getting to know, one of them has her birthday on Tuesday so I’m excited to spend it with them. I am thinking of doing a post on adoption from a siblings point of view!

Sorry for the long winded post with no pictures but I wanted to let you know what I had going on recently and coming up, I’ve missed blogging! What has been going on in your life?


Tag: The Boyfriend

2014-01-19 21.48.04

I thought I’d kick this week off with a tag post, why not eh? I’ve had this one saved for a while, and as I’m currently half way through a lovely 4 days off spent with my boyfriend, it’s perfect timing.

Firstly, a little about him. My lovely boyfriend of  nearly 5 and a half years now is called Christopher O’Neill, he has a degree in media production which he isn’t using any time soon and he wants to be a teacher. I am trying to persuade him to start his own blog at the minute and was thinking of starting off with him doing a fortnightly post on here. Let me know what your thoughts are on this!

Review: Mr Nutcase iPad Case*

2014-04-16 15.45.20

Before I got picked up last Wednesday for the Paul Mitchell event I talked about in my last post I spent a few hours in Starbucks with a caramel macchiato, doing some reading for my masters. I’ve not been taking my iPad 2 out and about with me recently because the case I was using was pretty knackered and I didn’t want to risk breaking it. However, last week I received my new iPad case* from Mr Nutcase.

Books I’m Reading


I apologise for the lack of book related post yesterday! I had it all written up but forgot to schedule it… Oops! Here it is now for you though.

Lectures for my masters finished last week, and I had missed a few down to health problems. This had meant the past few weeks I’ve been concentrating on writing up lecture notes and getting prepared for assignments, in the times I would usually spend reading. So instead of a book review today I thought I’d show you the books which are on my reading list at the minute!

The Bloggers Snail Mail

never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game

The Bloggers Snail Mail is another box swap I did this month, organised by Gemma of Lipsticks and Lashes. We were paired up with another blogger and after a month of getting to know each other we had to send a box of little treats up to the value of £5. I have to say though it was tricky sticking to the budget!
