• Goodbye 2014!

    Oh, 2014, don’t leave me. This year has been the most mentally challenging year of my life without question, from previous years I didn’t think I could get any worse but this year proved me wrong. I have gone on the biggest roller coaster ride of my life, although mentally challenging this year has been the most fun and life changing!  I’ve done so much, I’ve left home, I’ve learnt how to look after myself, I’ve travelled from my home to Sheffield, to Reading and London all on my own, I’ve been to many a gig (mostly 5 Seconds of Summer) and met the Australians lots of times too which…

  • What I’ve Learned In Semester 1 – Tips From Me To You.

    Hiiiiiii! Semester 1 is almost over and the past three months have been a very huge learning curve, it’s been an emotional roller coaster if I’m honest. I’ve met people, I’ve had little mental breakdowns and it’s just all been very strange – but also very good. I learnt a lot, some humorous things in fact that I’d like to share with you so heres what I have learned in the past three months and things that I simply want to pass onto you, like tips in a sense I guess? ENJOY.1. No one knows where Suffolk is despite it being an hour and a half drive away from London. 2.…

  • 15 Festive Favourites: IT’S (ALMOST) CHRISTMAAAAS.

    Hiiiiii! It’s kinda, almost Christmas so I wanted to get into the spirit and after watching Tom Fletcher from McFly’s v festive video I thought I’d join in (but not on video, I’m not at that level) here we go! 1. Festive foodPigs in blankets rule so hard and so do parsnips, one year I think my mum forgot to put the parsnips on and I honestly thought Christmas was ruined. Not really, I could never be mad on Christmas even in such a parsnip disaster. 2. Reindeer Rudolph is the man. 3. Day of Christmas 8, 8 mades a milking, weird but free milk in my eyes. NOT LITERALLY IN MY…

  • The Vamps Headline London!

    Last night my friend Libby and I got last minute tickets to go and see one of our favourite bands, The Vamps in London! The seats were right up in the circle and we were next to two very drunk and merry adults, so that was quite fun. You see, I’ve loved The Vamps for a super long time, since they were on YouTube and had no original songs…that was a long time ago in my eyes. I even made a blog post about their first single coming out way back when, you can read that here! They put on an amazing show, it was electric the whole time and…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Eight.

    Hiiii! Once again, I’ve not been in the best state of mind ever but I’m taking steps to make it better – working on CBT skills I once learnt and just generally looking after (or trying) myself. I’ll get there eventually, I must keep that mentality up! The past week has held some good times mind you and of course, it’s Positive Tuesday I’m going to share all of those things with you! You know, happiness is all about the little things isn’t it? Well, my flat mate and I ordered our first university Dominos and it was absolutely beautiful. Things like that are truly the most wonderful moments, anything…

  • Autumn Has My Heart.

    Hiiii! October is well underway, in recent years it has become one of my favourite months of the year. The last few months of every year are always the best in my eyes, I just love the crisp mornings, the events and all that comes with them. I could happily live in autumn/winter all year round, screw summer give me hoodies or give me death (this was an extreme over exaggeration, don’t give me death at all just give me jumpers and artificial warmth from fires and stuff). Here are a few things I absolutely love about autumn… 1. The trees and all the leaves… IT’S JUST BEAUTIFUL, LOOK AT…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Seven.

    Hello! Yep, I missed another week didn’t I so let’s start a fresh, let’s not focus on the weeks I missed. This is now week 7 okay, but it’s probably 7 and 8 I don’t know…I’M CONFUSED, JUST IGNORE ALL OF THAT.  The past couple of weeks haven’t been my best mentally, I’ll be honest. I won’t lie and say I’ve been a radiant ball of positivity because I really haven’t. I’ve been having a tough time, questioning a lot of things but I’m figuring it out or at least trying. I’ll get back on my feet, I always manage to even when it seems impossible. If I’ve done it…

  • Positive Tuesdays: (Not on a Tuesday) Weeks Five and Six.

    Hiiiiiii! Yes, I understand it’s actually Friday and I haven’t done one of these in 2 weeks now but hey, I’m now a student and I have things to do, people to see, Doritos to eat. It’s been a mad couple of weeks, I’ve been finally settling in after week four of ‘Positive Tuesdays’  and it now kinda feels like home here in my little bedroom in London with my flatmates who already feel like family. We can just talk about anything and everything, I love it. Okay so here are all the good things that have been happening… last week my best friends India and Damian got engaged!!! We’ve literally…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Four – UNIVERSITY.

    Helllooooo! As you can see in the title this one is about the thing I’ve been going on about for months and months, my good thing for the week is that I am finally at University! I moved on Saturday, I actually did it. On Friday I had the biggest wobble of all, even contemplating not moving at all and just giving up before I’d given it a chance and I stayed in bed all day when I had jobs to do before leaving but I couldn’t face doing anything because that meant everything was real and it was actually happening, very scary. But I did it, my dad packed…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Three.

    Hiiiiiii everyone! How are you doing? It’s quite a miracle that I have actually committed to doing this ‘Positive Tuesdays’ for a 3rd week running, well done me, I deserve a pat on the back for doing such a simple task, gosh! It’s been quite a week for me if I’m honest, anxieties and such were all over the place but all quite valid if I’m honest – I leave for London on Saturday! And with that my mum wasn’t well, neither was I at the beginning of last week so it’s all been a little bit crap but why would I possibly dwell on the negatives on a post…
