Whilst my university bedroom, as I’ve mentioned many a time before, is the pits, there are some changes that can be made to even the most dire of rooms to freshen them up for spring. So whilst I should be revising for my impending exams in the next few weeks I am instead thinking about all the things I can and can’t do to my bedroom.
Interior blogs are my absolute favourite at the moment and I am feeling really inspired by the likes of Apartment Number 4 and Rush & Teal. I’m in no position to have a home as gorgeous as the ones I see floating around my Instagram but I can make tiny subtle changes which start from as cheap as £1.89. Lets discuss how we can freshen up our bedrooms shall we?
My favourite thing about holidays is having the excuse to do absolutely bloody nothing. I do that most of the time anyway but then end up feeling guilty for y’know, not getting on with my life. Ibiza provided to the perfect excuse to forget about everything for a few days and completely relax. I’m into that.
I never read much during the semesters as I’m usually bogged down in academic texts for my modules or watching Netflix on a procrastination binge. I’m an avid reader and can easily finish a book in a few hours so I made sure I packed ample for my time in the sun.
I’m a bit shit at skincare most of the time, to be honest. My laziness shocks even me and the amount of time I’ve gone to bed with a face full of make-up purely because I can’t be bothered to walk to the bathroom is alarming.
But I’ve been slowly getting more in to it recently – taking the time to note my cleansers from my toners, finding a moisturiser that I like and scrubbing like crazy in the shower. My skin has felt a lot healthier aside from the odd hormonal break out and I love discovering all these new brands.
Just to clarify, I don’t know that much about the science of skincare but I am v good at putting all my money into the pockets of the people who own Boots. I love reading beauty blogs like Laurzrah but I just fancied throwing my ‘hi I know nothing’ card into the mix.
I’ve just returned from a week of sunning myself in Ibiza with my little sister and surprise, surprise, we didn’t kill one another. There was a lot of bickering but no major blow ups and I had a really lovely time on the island.
Ibiza has never been my first choice of holiday destination but when I was looking for somewhere cheap to take my sister a few months ago I couldn’t ignore the £20-ish flights to this Balearic island. A decent enough looking hotel was then found on Booking.com for a very reasonable price (breakfast included!) and it was settled – to Ibiza we were going and off-season too. The flight time is only 3 hours from Edinburgh airport so it doesn’t feel too far away when trying to find some sunshine.
It’s been a while since I sat in front of my screen and had a bit of a natter. I’ve been blogging pretty consistently three times a week since 2018 began and have recently added a newsletter to rota as well but I’ve haven’t done much nattering about my life in general. Probably because it is quite boring but seeing as third year classes have drawn to a close, I thought it was time to catch up. So hello, how’ve you been? How’s 2018 going?
This semester has been intense. It’s been busy. It’s been non-stop. Everything has. I’ve drank a lot of alcohol, spent a lot of time hungover, ate a lot of shite food, hardly been to the gym, spent a lot of money on useless crap and everything has been a bit of a roller coaster.
