Yellow Jumpers & Turtleneck Tops | What I Wore Wednesday

For a long time now I’ve being trying to perfect the art of layering one jumper over the other, but now with the rise of the adorable flute sleeves/jumper combination, I decided that I should probably just go for it and hope for the best.

I wish that I could say that I came up with this outfit idea after looking in my wardrobe and getting a wave of inspiration because I’m just so #stylish, but it actually came about because I was freezing in my poorly-heated student house and just decided to whack one jumper on over another.

What I Learned During Dry January

I’ve always been a fan of drinking. When I finally reached the age where my dad started letting me take more than one Smirnoff Ice to the “parties” my friends used to throw, I would always take any opportunity I could to get at least tipsy and have a good time with my pals.

When I got to the age of 18, where I could legally drink in clubs and bars, I wanted to be out every weekend with my friends. And then when I got to university, I found myself in the bizarre situation of being able to go out almost every night of the week because, and here comes the most frequently spoken sentence in of anyone at university, “first year doesn’t count”.

Milk and Honey, Rupi Kaur | Review

PSA: This “review” isn’t going to do this book justice.

The friend who recommended Milk and Honey to me (who’s review of it you can read here) and I sat around one night discussing how we weren’t sure how to talk about Rupi Kaur’s poetry on our blogs. We both knew we wanted to review it – we just didn’t know how, because anything we wrote about it wouldn’t be written the way we wanted it to be.

Work Experience Outfit Guide

A couple of weeks ago I took part in two weeks’ work experience at a publishing company near my university. I had so much fun learning what each department does and although two weeks was better than one week would have been – it caused a lot of problems vis-a-vis my outfit planning. How on earth was I supposed to look sick af when I only had 3 work experience outfits in my wardrobe? Disaster – but luckily I managed it.

So for anyone with the same problem – here’s how to style yourself for a whole week without reverting back to a waitress-inspired, black on black style.

How to Make a Bullet Journal (for non-creative types)

Bullet journals (or diary, which I am going to refer to it as from now on because I’m too British to use the word “journal”) have been increasing in popularity over the past few months. So before returning to university to do my third, final and most stressful year I decided it would be best to invest in one in order to help organise my life more (or at least make itย lookย like my life is organised).

Tried & Tested Home Remedies for Getting Rid of Spots

When it comes to trying to clear up my skin, I can confidently say I’ve tried the majority of home remedies for getting rid of spots. Now, at the royal age of 20 (nearly 21), I’m using my experience with all these “remedies” to give a succinct list of the one’s that actually did help my skin, rather than leave me stood in the mirror the morning before school wondering how on earth that massive spot managed to appear in the middle of my forehead overnight.
