The other day I was invited to go out in town on a student night with my friends as I'd said I would go with them at least once before I left to go to University. However, I did not have an outfit as such that I felt either comfortable in or that I would be able to fit into. I'm currently through my weight loss journey therefore I have not been out in town for a while nor drinking, so as you can imagine I felt rather self conscious when trying to find suitable clothing. Then my friend Jess found this gorgeous checkered black and white top which was so comfortable to wear with an inbuilt bra support which is great for not having to try to hide bra straps! Not to mention it was only £6! I then came across a black skater skirt (which I have been looking for one for 5 months or so) which was also £6! I love the skater skirt because now I can use it with so many tops I have and be able to use most of my wardrobe again! Whole new outfit sorted with £12 out the bank (brilliant!) and I'm rather happy for the choice made as I loved wearing this out the other day!
We are now in the second month of the New Year and I realised I hadn't done a post on anything to do with New Years. Instead of goals etc, I thought I would start this year with what I have learnt from 2017. As they say, better late than never!
1) Cats are the best - For those of you who follow my Instagram and Twitter you may know I have two little fluff balls (Oryx and Nala) that are a pain sometimes but I love them to pieces. I have always wanted cats and when my husband suggested we got our little Oryx it meant the world to me. So towards the end of the year we couldn't resist getting another little fluff ball, who is now our little Nala. They both can be annoying little sods from time to time, especially at 3AM. In December we looked after Lola, my husbands' families jug (Jack Russell/ Pug), which really made me realise that in our current situation I definitely prefer cats!
2) Festivals are awesome - For Christmas 2016 my husband surprised me with tickets to Downloa…
Today I would like to touch on an issue that is so often forgotten about. That is the mental health of students who have completed their degree. Now, you would think that the health of these ex-students would improve now that they have less stress from assignments, exams and their dissertation. You would also think that because they are moving back home (for the majority) that they would be feeling great to be around family and friends again.
However, this often isn't the case for ex-students. Don't get me wrong I know that quite a few students end up staying in their uni town due to jobs, liking of the location and partners or friend they have chosen to live with. Even so for these individuals they might not be as relieved or as happy as they appear.
Unfortunately, with some ex-students they are often exposed to stressors which lead to the development of stress and depression. Whilst I was at University I found that myself and other people I knew were anxious and e…
It is super close to Halloween now and I am extremely excited for it. I hope you all have big plans, whether that be a party, trick or treatin' or watching spooky films all night. No matter what you guys do I hope you all have an awesome time! This year myself and my fiance decided that we are going to be hosting a party (Kee has never been to a Halloween party so we thought it was necessary to have one). I absolutely adore having parties/ social gatherings (for anyone who always used to say that to their parents to make sure they knew you weren't drinking) and I love decorating the house and preparing goods (especially for Halloween)!
Today I will be showing you how to (attempt to) make some creepy cookies. I apologise in advance for my baking skills, they aren't quite up to scratch yet. But then again if you don't try, you'll never know eh?
So first of all you'll be needing to gather your ingredients for the biscuit dough. I always follow a recip…
