Welcome all to 2017! I know that a lot of people were REALLY looking forward to 2016 being over, and although I can empathise with making the most of the new year, a lot of great things happened in 2016 for me. 2016 was my first full year of being employed (yay!), and my first full year out of education (even if I am now studying for a graduate masters degree…). In November, Matt and I reached four years of being together, which was such…Continue Reading “Hey 2017!”

I started off this post last week, and was planning on doing something totally different. I was aiming to do a kind of summary of last month, the ups and the downs, and what I’d been up to. However, I was reminded recently of a rule I’d set myself regarding tweets a couple of years ago. I was constantly tweeting out negative things, and as well as no one actually being interested in reading my depressing tweets, it also put me in a cycle of…Continue Reading “6 Happy Things”

Last weekend, I turned 21! I have to say, I definitely don’t feel it! If anything, I think my mental age is probably getting lower… Hehe 🙂 Anyway, it was bit unfortunate that most of my friends are now in Finals mode at uni, so I knew we probably weren’t going to have a proper night out. Instead, we went to a cute little restaurant called Zheng, which does quite a few types of Asian food, although I definitely go for the Chinese cuisine they…Continue Reading “21”

Okay, so this post is majorly late! But I love reading these so I thought I’d do a quick one now. My Youtube video on the same subject is at the end of the post, so give that a watch if you’d prefer! The first thing I got was a brand new camera, a Fujifilm S8650 (I think). This was from my parents and it’s such a cool looking camera! I got it in white, which my mum thought was bizarre, but I think it…Continue Reading “What I Got For Christmas!”

I’ve had quite the break from blogging since Christmas! To be quite honest, doing Blogmas wasn’t as fun as I’d anticipated – I often struggled for inspiration and many of the posts weren’t up to the quality which I’d have expected. From now on, blog posts will be when I’m inspired to write, and when I actually have a subject matter to blog about! This means that there won’t be a set-in-stone schedule, like many bloggers have. I’m not a fan of stating exactly when…Continue Reading “Back to Blogging & ASOS Delivery!”

So, first up, apologies for this being a day late. I will do my absolute best to get a second post out tonight so that I’m back on track. The reason for writing this a little late is because I had a terrible day yesterday. Fortunately, it wasn’t because anything horrific actually happened to me or anyone I know, it was mainly due to anxiety. I’m only just coming round to accept that I might have some kind of anxiety, so it’s pretty scary for…Continue Reading “The Importance of Dealing with a Bad Day (Blogmas Day 2)”

Following my 100 happy days post a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to do a bit of an update. I know it kind of goes against the whole idea of the challenge, but I am awful at remembering to get pictures of things, so there are a few gaps. Oops! Anyway, here are all of the photos I’ve managed in between my last post and now, and if it didn’t go without saying, this is going to be a very picture-heavy post! Day 12…Continue Reading “#100happydays No2”

Nearly 2 weeks ago now, I signed up to do the 100 Happy Days challenge, where you find something happy about every day for 100 days (duh). I chose to post about it over Instagram, which has actually been harder than I thought, because there are a lot of little things that make me happy that I either forget to take a picture of, or it’s just a conversation with friends, or some kind words from someone, which are difficult to capture. I’ve been quite…Continue Reading “#100happydays”
