Hello October- Autumn Staples

Hello lovelies! I cannot believe it is already October, where has the time gone? I have had some exciting things happening behind the scenes of my blog and I have not posted in a while but I am sort of back. I am very busy so my posts may not be consistent but I’m trying to start this new month off positively and optimistically. October is truly the month of autumn and there are so many autumnal things. I thought I would share with you some autumn staples!

TV & movies that I have been obsessed with

There is nothing I love doing more than watching tv (actually there might be but tv is great). So I thought what better to do than to give you a rundown of what tv I have been obsessed with since my exams finished. 1. THE VAMPIRE DIARIES I am currently on season 4 and it is so good. I have been told by nearly everyone I know to watch this but because it has 8 seasons I said I would wait until summer because education is important kids!!

How I take my notes- TIPS & EXAMPLES

Hello lovelies! I have been at school for 3 days now and have already got back into my regular habit of taking notes. I thought it would be good to share with you how I take my notes and some good tips for taking pretty notes quickly. Firstly there is the title. Now this is going to sound very strange but I actually recommend writing the title last or later. Sometimes the title on the board ends up being the subheading so I normally wait until the end of the lesson to note it down. However, I like my notes to look neat so I actually write my titles at home which is something I will talk about a bit later on.

September goals

Hello lovelies! I've just got back to school like a lot of you might have already and I spoke to a lot of my friends about their futures. We had results day a few weeks ago and not everyone got what they wanted but... despite this, some of them still had the brightest smiles on their faces. This small setback hasn't stopped them from trying to achieve their goals. Instead of letting themselves being pushed off their road to success, they got back up and took a different path to reach the same goal or a new goal. I admire them a lot for that, which is why I thought I would start doing a "my goals" post every so often to remind you all as well as myself that although we may have setbacks, always keep your goals in mind and find another way.

L’Oreal Paris Paradise Mascara

Hello lovelies! Today I am doing a makeup product review which I never normally do, but... I think it is something worth sharing. I am not a huge makeup products and only ever wear it when I go out. If you know me, my everyday routine involves moisturiser, lipbalm, spot concealing if I'm having a bad day and sometimes mascara. I am not a fan of thick clumpy lashes but the L'Oreal Paradise Mascara is far from it.

DIY Calendar + Free Printable

Hello lovelies! This morning I sat down and decided to make a calendar for next month because I have a very hectic schedule as I prepare for this examination I have to take for university (the UKCAT). On top of that I'll be back at school studying my final year of A-levels and I'll be preparing to apply to university. As you can see, I am a busy bee at the moment. When I went to make the calendar, my mum asked me why I was spending time on that when I could just print one out. I like being creative so I wanted to do one myself and I thought it would be a good DIY for my readers. I also thought that not everyone wants to or has the time to do this, so... I have included a free printable calendar for this month that I designed myself! If you want to DIY, then keep reading.

End of summer lookbook

Hello lovelies! I know that it is the end of summer and autumn is approaching, therefore I thought that now would be the perfect time for a lookbook on the "transition" clothes (as the seasons are changing). These are some of the outfits I wore in my recent holiday to Thailand, however I wouldn't say they are all summer clothes because often we had to cover up to avoid the mosquitoes. Also some of the items are repeated, but I thought it would be interesting to show you how you can style the same piece of clothing to create different outfits. I hope you enjoy the post!

How to create pins for Pinterest

For blogging, Pinterest is one of the best social media platforms to get involved in. Although it may seem quite time consuming, you can create pins quite quickly if you know where to look and what to do. Therefore, today as my final post in the Pinterest series, I am showing you how I create pins for Pinterest. Firstly let me talk about the app I use which is Canva. It is free to download on your phone, or you can use the website, I personally like to use the app because I use the photos I take on my phone but it's your choice. This is pretty much a tutorial on how to use Canva to create your pins so I'd like to point out that this is not sponsored, Canva is just an amazing app/website. Also, you can use it for so many other different things like creating headers for your blog, featured images, banners (basically anything).

Things Pinterest made me want to try

Hey guys, today I am bringing to you the first post in my Pinterest series this week. As you may know I love Pinterest and I have been using it more since I am blogging now as well. I have a bunch of totally different posts lined up for it so I hope you enjoy! I have seen so many pins on 2 pieces- especially the ones from Zaful. I really want one for my holiday but in the UK we never really have the weather for it so I would wear it like twice in the whole year. However they are really cheap on Zaful so I might give them a go. Read more...

July favourites

I say this every month but honestly time is flying by. I haven't done a monthly favourites since April but I am back with one and I'm not sure if I will do it every month, I'll just see how it goes. I have been loving loads of things this month and am excited to share them with you in this favourites post. First thing I've been loving is my Rimmel eyebrow pencil in the shade black brown. This is the first and only eyebrow pencil I have ever used because it is so good.

Being healthier

When I first started my blog, I did a post called 6 things you can do to be healthier; admittedly that was months ago and I've introduced quite a few new things to be healthier. The first one is green tea. I have been drinking this nearly every day (as and when I remember to). I am going to say that I hate the taste, but the changes it has made to my skin are worth it. It has kept my spots under control and they've not really got bad at any point since I've started drinking it. It hasn't got rid of them though so I'm still on a hunt to solve that problem. I just drink the ASDA brand green tea which is like 79p for a box, I think.
