    Festive Films to Get You Ready for Christmas*

    Ok, I know it’s not December yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about Christmas, right? I’m already getting a festive feel when out and about, whether it’s seeing gifts in the shops or the Christmas decorations adorning town centres. With that in mind, I’m thinking it’s acceptable to start off the Christmas blog posts. What better way to do that than with some festive films. No doubt we all have a list of movies that are a must-watch this time of year. I love cosying up in front of the TV in my pyjamas when it’s cold outside. A mug of tea or hot chocolate wouldn’t go…

    How to Survive January Exams

    At last, laptop is fully functioning and I can sit down with a big mug of tea and write a blog post. I am no stranger to the world of exams. Starting with SATS in Year 6, tests have since been an annual occurrence at the end of the school year. However, come GCSEs, not only do you have to endure your spring and summer time in a haze of revision, but January suddenly becomes a dreaded month of studying too. Whether you have mocks, resits, or like me, an essay and an end of module exam, January examinations can be the worst. Unfortunately, Christmas sends you into a false…

    My Winter Favourites

    Apologies for blogging being so messed up as we approach Christmas. Schedules have gone out the window in favour of random blogging when I can. I have never done a ‘favourites’ post before, so thought I would get this one in before Christmas. L’Oreal Paris Ultra Precision Eyeliner Although I only got this eyeliner yesterday, I have had my eye on it for a while. I wanted an eyeliner where the colour was strong, like a liquid eyeliner, but the application was in a pen style, as I find that easier to apply. This is the perfect combination and it did not disappoint when I used it. 2. Rimmel London…

    My Top 10 Christmas Food and Drink

    Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of posting over the past couple of days, but I was not feeling too great so spent most of my time curled up on the sofa. How good was the Strictly final though?! I would usually do a video today, but I felt in the mood to write and I am also going to see the new Star Wars later, so do not have time to film and upload! I have not done a foodie post in a while and as it is Christmas, what better time than to talk food and drink! I will be giving you the run through of my Top…

    Christmas Decorations

    Hello everybody! I am not calling this a Blogmas post, as I have decided to do Vlogmas instead. However, it is that time of year when we are getting festive and going all out on the decorations. This year in my house though, I feel that it is noticeably more subtle. Of course, we have all the usual Christmassy delights such as the tree, tinsel and lights, but there is a more sophisticated feel. We have waved goodbye to the tacky decorations that were no doubt picked out by me and my brother when we were three, and instead are sticking to the neutral tones that already fill the living…

    Fireworks and Festivities

    I do apologise for my absence on the blog over the past week. I think I had hit my metaphorical brick wall in terms of work and writing, so spent the first half of the week in bed not being able to do anything! I am back though, and hope to catch up with everything! During this time of the year, there are lots of celebrations going on. Halloween was on Monday, it is Bonfire Night tonight, and come on let’s be honest, everyone is already feeling Christmassy. Halloween             Last weekend and Monday saw the return of the spooky festival. The shops were filled…
