Autumn Edit


I was going to create a September favourites, then I decided against it. I furthered this decision by rounding the entire idea into autumn favourites, the season of pumpkin and leaves; the only way I am changing this plan is by calling it an autumn edit so I sound that little bit professional in my writing. Anyway, this is my edit of all things autumnal; reasons I love this autumn in particular and hopefully most autumns to follow.
In the life of nature, autumn appears to be the beginning of the end, the wind-down to the year. I always feel it’s a beginning of sorts even if it does sound overly cliché. Autumn marks the start of a new academic year, new challenges and roads paving their way to a future I am uncertain of. I love this though. The idea of decorating a new room and reading hundreds of more passages that help me navigate essays and the degree they are completing.  I suppose that is reason number one as to why I like autumn, for the challenges and mystery it brings by starting off the new academic year.

Student Room Tour




I am embarrassed by the amount of time I have let slide by since my last post, nearly a month! This post was supposed to go up on Monday, but since this was ready and today's post still needs a little editing you can have a room tour instead. Sorry about the brief death of my blog, and I hope everyone is having a good day.

You’re all probably thinking, I swear she did a post on this not too long ago and that’s true, but like the disorganised person I am, I didn’t do a room tour until I moved out. Well, this is my new room for year 2!! (Well second year since year two makes me sound like I am back in primary school.)

August Favourites



I had been planning on posting this earlier in the week but between catching up on sleep from my weekend in Edinburgh and working I haven’t gotten round to it. Apologies as now I am behind on content, a break was needed though, just some time to enjoy life and blogging as two separate entities. Leaving this post though has changed the order of things as I thought I would partake in the obligatory, at least once, monthly favourites.

Fashion Statements

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”-Coco Chanel

I am writing this post in the dead of night before getting up at 2am to take my sister to the airport; is this a good idea? We’ll see. It was started in one of those eureka I thought of that moments, that  moment where  no matter how much you jot it down in your trusty planning notebook it needs to be started. That’s where I’m left, starting a post on an idea I am quite passionate about, I have no idea if I’ll finish it before I need to sleep but we will have to see.

Fashion has always been a place of self-expression and opinion, it has always been a place to demonstrate your loves and style. Bearing this in mind and the current political discourse that encompasses the globe; I thought a post of showcasing your political beliefs through clothing was needed more than a written f**k you to President Trump. After all, why shouldn’t you showcase all your passionate thoughts and feelings through your wardrobe? These aren't necessarily on trend but they are just small ways you can help causes if you wanted to show your views or support openly.


Making your halls a home

Bedding and Cushion are from Dunelm

The next instalment in my university advice series isn’t about whilst you’re there, it’s the bit that comes before. You’ve collected your results, you have a place and now you need to prepare yourself for the big move to wherever you have gotten into. Choosing a theme for your room is hard enough, I mean most people I know want
ed a set colour scheme at least to brighten up the basic layout halls give you, here is a basic idea of of a room in Pooley house so you can plan ahead how much you wish to bring with you.

Tips to save money at university


This isn’t really relevant to me at the moment since I am on my summer break but come mid November with the need to buy Christmas presents looming I am fretting over finances. As a student, and a student in London, this isn’t too uncommon as everything is crazy expensive. Moving on from my financial status most of the year I thought a useful post for prospective university students was helpful ways to save money. Most of these things probably will seem trivial or obvious, but these are just some of the things you can do to budget and save in first year so you aren’t swimming in your overdraft by the summer.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette: Six Month Review


Equipped with vouchers from Christmas I decided to venture into the realm of Too faced in my local Debenhams as for once I could afford another high end beauty palette. I originally had planned on getting one of the Naked Palettes as I already have a few Urban Decay eye shadows and lipsticks. In a post-New year mindset though I left my beauty comfort zone to try something new.
