10 Things That Made Me Happy in September

  This month has been difficult; I’ve been missing my boyfriend a lot, I’ve moved to a new residence in London to start the academic year, met new people, and student finances are more of a challenge this year. Last month I decided to start a ’10 things that made me happy’ series because I’m trying to have a more positive outlook on life, so here’s what made me happy in September… Starting my YouTube channel. I’ve wanted to do…

Must-Have Autumn Makeup from Seventeen

I recently joined the new Seventeen Bloggers Network, and they sent me a couple of items from their collection to review. I told them to surprise me, because I didn’t have anything in particular that I was lusting after, and I’m so happy with what I got sent! 

Epic Nerd Haul featuring Star Wars, Disney & Adventure Time!

Last Tuesday I was supposed to have my first lecture of my 2nd year at uni, but for some reason the lecturer didn’t show up. Of course everyone was a bit annoyed about travelling into central London expecting to learn about the Romans, with no email or notification about that lecture not happening. Anyway, some of my flatmates are new to London so I decided to text them and ask if they wanted to go to the British Museum (I study Classics), and…

The Bloggers Hangout LFW Beauty Bar

Last Monday, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the Bloggers Hangout LFW Beauty Bar in Shoreditch. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was excited to attend my first blogging event in London. The upstairs of Beach Blanket Babylon was filled with brands and bloggers, with City Swish (pictured above) giving massages in the middle of the room! I didn’t have one myself, but it looked really relaxing. 

The Pandora AW15 Style Clinic

Firstly I just want to say that my MacBook has stopped charging, so I’m writing this post on my phone and I’ll have to go into Apple tomorrow to sort it out. ? Anyway, a few days ago I was invited to attend the Pandora AW15 Style Clinic in their flagship Marble Arch store. It was pouring down with rain, so I ended up looking like a drowned rat, but a few glasses of prosecco made me forget that! Chloe…

Edgy in Autumn with Deichmann

A few days ago, Deichmann released a new shoe range in collaboration with Hanneli Mustaparta, a gorgeous Norwegian fashion blogger with impeccable style (seriously, check out her blog!). There are 10 different styles in the collection, ranging from brogues to knee-high boots, and I was lucky enough to sample some of them. Of course I gravitated towards the biker-esque ankle boots and the grungy chunky zip-up shoes, because I’m really into 90’s edgy fashion right now. I unfortunately don’t have a…

The Cutest Pyjamas! ?

Recently I was looking for some cute new pyjamas for uni, and found these adorable Despicable Me fluffy unicorn ones in Primark. Cute and fluffy unicorn pjs to keep me warm in my student halls, how could I not get them?! I love the “It’s so fluffy” quote from Agnes on the front, she’s my favourite character (except for Gru of course!) It turned out that getting these was perfectly timed, because I joined a Twitter sleepover for bloggers that night!…

My favourite shampoo for curly hair

It’s quite difficult to find good hair products for curly hair that don’t break the bank. Sulphates and silicones are awful for curls, so I set out to find a sulphate-free shampoo, and a silicone-free conditioner, but most of them are pretty damn expensive. I’m a student, and I get through shampoo quite quickly because I have so much hair, so I can’t afford to spend £10 per bottle. I ended up browsing the ‘world beauty’ hair section in Sainsbury’s, which is…

10 things that made me happy in August

August was one of the hardest months for me ever. My boyfriend left on the 20th for his study abroad year in California, while I’m stuck here waiting to go back to London for university, knowing that I won’t enjoy it as much as I would with him. As I mentioned in my Life Lately post, we tried to make the most of the time we had left together by doing lots of fun things over the summer, so I’ve decided…
