20 Before 20

20 Before 20

I did one of these before I turned 18 and the results actually weren’t as horrific as I thought. I managed to do about 15 of them I think? It was all pretty fine and dandy. I like setting goals. I like writing goals down. I like achieving goals even more. I have a notebook which says “Goal Digger” on the front (spy it on my Insta here) and it makes my heart go fuzzy and warm every time I look at it.

It’s probably on my list of ten fave things I own besides my laptop and long pendant necklace from DP. But yeah WOO to goals am I right?

Five Friday Things

Five Friday Things

I made it to week two! YAY! I stuck with something! Congrats to me! I didn’t leave it to the last moment either, Mrs Very Organised over here. It it the last week of semester two (how the flippity flip did that happen) and as when this goes live it’ll be Friday, I’ll be tootling on to last. ever. class. of. second. year.

Only got 3 exams to trundle past between now and freedom so hm, maybe not quite free just yet. I’ve had a strange week, all of my coursework is now submitted and I just don’t have anything pressing to do, which feels weird. I mean I have like revision for exams to do but nothing which is draining the life out of me just yet.

A Lil Beauty Update

A Lil Beauty Update

I’ve been really trying to up my skincare game this year because my skin is gross and horrible and I spend 2488 minutes moaning about it. The weather is a little grim today, I’m sitting in my bed and my Classics work is staring at me in the face as if to say “HELLO REMEMBER US.”

I’m going to those guys next but at the moment, I’m sorting through my beauty products and deciding which ones I love and ones I like a little bit. I’m also watching Criminal Minds because <3. I’m watching season 8 which I don’t think I’ve seen before and it is soooo good. All the characters are so great and the storylines seriously, seriously, seriously, creep me out. View Post

Five Friday Things

Damn, almost got that alliteration.Back in the older days of this blog, I used to sometimes do a weekly favourites post. They are my favourite to read on other people’s blogs as it is just nice to see joy being spread and is also a super good way to accidentally spend money.

“Oh so-and-so and from that blog is loving those new shoes from River Island, I can see why, SO PRETTY” and then *accidentally buys*. Yes, maybe that was why. These posts help to fuel my shopping addiction and money spending habits.

I have been trying to read more books since 2017 began. Am I succeeding? In parts, yes. During the Christmas holidays, I managed to smash through quite a lot of books but as I expected, when I returned to university, I fell off the bandwagon again. I had a trip home at the end of January for some family things and a bit of chill time so I treated myself to a new Kindle book to read on the train.

I have four/five books in Glasgow which I haven’t got round the reading yet and every time I think about buying something new, I always feel guilty that I wasn’t reading the ones I had.
