A Huge Homeware Haul & Room Tour

I went shopping the first week I was back in Glasgow to spice up my life and buy lots of lovely new bits from my room. Our flat is a tenement flat and I really wanted to make my room as comfortable and “me” as possible so that it felt like home. Most of the furniture is black which I’m not overly keen on, the wardrobe is a bit rank and I didn’t have a lamp so I was facing a bit of a challenge on my hands.

Having a space I feel safe and happy in is so important to me, I love curling up with a book or binge watching Suits with candles burning and a good blanket. I do that all the time at home so I needed this space to be like that too. Cue a double SAAS loan and a couple of good friends to help carry stuff, I embarked on said quest. I’m gonna do this post by shops as I visited a good few and in case you wanna snap anything up.

Recently Reading

Man, reading is hard when I’m back at university. I know I’ve mentioned this like 6723 times before but I feel so guilty when I read things which aren’t related to my degree. Like if I can find a spare half hour to read my book, I could be using it to read The Origins of the Peloponnesian War or Reformation, Europe’s House Divided. Both riveting reads but man, sometimes my brain just needs a break from all the academic jargon.

This post has been in the works for a while as these books have been super spaced out over the last couple of months. We have a mix of thriller, self-help and young adult mystery. I’m hoping to do some reading on yoga and tarot and have a couple of thriller books lined up so maybe my next Recently Reading will be more extensive.

10 Little Things #13

Another week, another Little Things. I don’t know why I’ve started capitalising the title but I just think it looks a little better and more of a thing? I can’t believe I’m about to start week three of the semester (eek I’m not ready so much work to do lol and I can’t stop watching Suits) and boy, it’s a busy week. A lot of coursework and preparation to be done and then Home with a capital H at the end of the week – eek! But here is last weeks Little Things …

A Summer Of Slow Living

I guess I could say I’m trying to cling onto the summer by still wittering on about on here at the end of September. It is October on Sunday, that is most definitely autumn, Hallowe’en is just around the corner and Christmas is on the horizon, so why am I still obsessed with summer?

I learnt a lot about myself this summer, I accepted things, I cherished things, I agreed to disagree with things. I want to take what I learnt forward into the rest of the year to keep feeling the positive effects. One of the biggest changes was my embracement of slow living. Slow living is a phrase I picked up on Instagram due to the numerous hashtags circulating showcasing beautiful pictures of “slow living”.

4 Things I Am Aiming To Do This Academic Year

Crikey, I really can’t believe that I’m back in Glasgow for a third year. I am starting third year, junior honours, I’m more than half way through my degree. I can’t quite believe it to be honest. It is blinkin’ exciting and terrifying all at the same time. One of the good things about university aside from the ginormous three month break over the summer (seriously, how I am going to cope when this isn’t a thing for me anymore?) is having the chance to start afresh when heading back.

I have started my third year of my university degree. I started junior honours, grades actually count now, I chose these courses because they interested me, my degree just got hella relevant. Well, I mean it has always been relevant but everything feels very amped up right now and I just want to curl up in bed and watch Suits on my iPad.
