This quote from Ghandi really jumped out at me recently. It was used in the Minimalism documentary I wrote about in my last post and ever since I saw it I just can’t get it out of my mind.

So my last post actually inspired me. I was shocked and appalled at myself for my utter reliance and, let’s call it, addiction to my phone. And as I said, I don’t think I’m alone in this situation.

Part of my nightly routine is snuggling into bed with a cup of tea to watch a film. Whereas previously it would be some crappy rom-com that 9/10 would put me to sleep. Recently, however, I have broadened my horizons to documentaries and I’m kind of hooked!

Ah yes, my scatter brain strikes again. On the morning of my first exam last week I made the stupid decision to put my phone in the washing machine. Well, I say decision, it wasn’t until a good few minutes into the cycle that I realised that that banging noise was in fact my mobile, as opposed to “a heavy item of clothing” like my brain thought…Oh how I love myself for that one… Read More

feminism feminist

For those of you that have followed me for a while, you might recall that I wrote a blog post on Why I Am A Feminist back in the day. But I feel, that although the post is still incredibly relevant, both myself and the world have changed since it was published and so I feel an update is necessary. This is because in that year (or whatever time frame it is) I have educated myself so much more about feminism; different types, different movements, different public figures, different perspectives. And I really wanted to share it with you because I really feel feminism is something everyone should identify with. To be honest, I can’t see why you shouldn’t. Equality of the sexes surely is a concept everyone can get behind right?

When it comes to blogging, everyone thinks there’s rules and ways of doing things. We all do it. We all try and get those perfect bright blog photos, the frequent content and the brand collaborations. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t try/want to do these things. I enjoy them, I guess it’s par for the course. But I’ll be honest, if you judge a blogger on these standards, I’m a bad one.

Okay so I know I’m not actually 20 years old yet, but I will be in June, and I have really been reading some fab books recently as a way to escape from the heavy weight of my looming exams. Reading is something that has always been a bit of an escape for me and have if I find a good book you won’t see me until it’s finished! I definitely don’t get enough time to read BUT I’m really trying to increase the frequency in my life. When it comes to the types of books I read, I love a good crime thriller but also enjoy personal development books. I’ve never been one for romance novels, but that’s just me! So, I thought I would compile a list of 3 must reads for people my age, and, if you haven’t read them (regardless of your age) give them a try!

vegan cruelty free skin care

One thing I have always struggled with is my skin. I have oily, dry, spot prone and sensitive skin, so you know its fab…It has taken me so long to find a routine that works for me and I’ve found that by combining diet changes and different products my skin has improved massively. I know I’m not really a beauty blogger but I feel this links into wellness which I do like to write about. I think confidence in what I’m putting in and on my body is safe is so important so for any of you out there looking for vegan and/or cruelty free products to help with you skin this might just be the post for you!

I cannot believe I only have one more week left of lectures for this academic year! That means one more week of lectures before I officially have to be panicking about exams! This year is going crazy fast, and after spending some time thinking about this past year in particular, I’ve realised I have learnt so much about the world around me and myself. As with any blogger, I, therefore, would like to share these 7 things with you!

Today’s post is slightly different to my recent ones, but it is probably THE most important post I’ve written and probably will ever write. That’s because today I’m talking about boobs. Yes, boobs. But not just how awesome they are, but how knowing them could potentially save your life. And I think that’s pretty damn important if you ask me.

This is a post EVERYONE should read. Male or female. This post is about breast cancer and what you can do for at least 5 minutes every month, anyone can get breast cancer, not just females!

It’s International Women’s Day, and today will be a day like never before. Usually, today would be about celebrating women and women’s history but this year things are going to be different. The organisers of the Women’s Marches back in January are calling for this year to be another day of action. And it’s something that every woman can take part in.

Any one else seriously confused by how fast this year is going? Like it’s MARCH! I swear I only just got back to university, and now all my deadlines seem to be far too close for comfort! I don’t know why but the days just keep flying by, which is good and bad. Good because it means I’m closer to my holiday of a lifetime with Josh, but bad because it means my deadlines and exams are even closer!

I’ve really taken some time out this week to sort my life out. By this I mean I haveΒ finally taken steps to put things in place for my future; meetings with University tutors, careers services and career workshops are all filling up my diary. I love being busy especially for things for my future. With my life being so incredibly busy I thought I’d give some of my top tips on how to stay organised!

So three weeks vegan, one to go. And I have to say it has been so much better (and easier) than I expected it to be. I thought as I’m now this far in I thought I would give a little summary and a few recipes of things I have been eating over the week. A reflection if you will, what I’ve liked, disliked, learnt etc, etc. Now ***spoiler alert*** I won’t be going vegan long term/full time. But I am going to try and incorporate it as much as possible into my everyday diet as I have felt some incredible differences in myself over the last few weeks, but I feel I would have difficulty maintaining it when going out with friends or round people’s houses for meals. I’m sure some vegans out there are frustrated at my reasoning, but for me I think eat vegan as much as possible is better than not doing anything at all!
