The Ultimate Relaxation Playlist



I haven't done one of these for a long time but I always love writing these playlist posts, since I love sharing music as much as I love receiving new music suggestions!  I've done a few of these 'Ultimate __ playlist' type posts in the past (so if you haven't read those you can find a few here, here and here!) and I decided it's about time I wrote another one! Today I've decided to share some of my favourite songs to relax to, these are the songs I listen to when I've had a stressful day, usually whilst soaking in the bath, candles burning, a lush bath bomb fizzing around my feet and an unhealthy snack at hand! We all have those moments where we need to chill out and spend time looking after ourselves so here are my recommendations for the perfect songs to get you into that relaxed mood! I've also tried to be really tech-savvy and include the playlist so you can play it straight from this post, so be sure to have a listen as you read - there are loads more songs in there that I haven't mentioned! As always, feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments below - I'm always looking to add more songs to my playlists and I hope you guys enjoy! 

June Book Haul 2017 | TBR


Can you believe my last book haul was back in February?! I definitely can't.. where has the time gone?! To be fair, looking back at that haul I've realised I've only barely finished some of the books from back then which proves just how little time I've had to read recently - I guess when I was in full swing with writing my dissertation back in April I definitely had no time to read and after it was handed in... once my brain had turned to complete mush.. I wasn't really in the mood to read much! But I'm back and I've ordered some more books and I'm excited to be writing another book haul first impressions-ish post! I'm excited to get back into reading and I need more book recommendations, so if you have any amazing books you've read recently that you would like to recommend you definitely should leave them in the comments below.. we all know I love a good psychological thriller book too, so if you have any psychological thriller suggestions that's a huge bonus! 

Current Lush Collection #2


Guys! I'm back doing my favourite type of post.. I am of course talking about a cheeky lush haul! I have to admit though, instead of this being a first impressions type Lush haul where I haven't had a chance to try anything out yet, I have literally had these products for over a month now and I couldn't resist the urge to have a fair few baths.. so I'll be doing more of a review of all the products I suppose, haha! I've really been into Lush again recently - I feel like I place orders so so often nowadays, especially since I've gotten more into bath bombs as they only last one bath, compared to bubble bars that I can usually stretch out to 2-3 baths.. I'm just really loving all their bath bombs recently! This collection also features quite a few exclusives and also a cheeky lush kitchen product so I'm not 100% sure if those are going to be available anymore, but I'll be sure to leave a link to as many as possible. But yeah, that's about a long as I can drag this intro out so let's get onto the reviews - I hope you guys enjoy!

Update #19 | What Happens Now..?


Hi Guys! I hope you all enjoyed my recent series where I talked all about my three years at uni, I keep saying it but I had so much fun reminiscing on all the good times and looking back at the three years - since they seemed to just go by in a blur! (If you haven't had a read, you should - start here!) But if four parts wasn't enough for you and you wanted to read a little bit more about my life then you've come to the right place! I've decided to do a little update post and talk all about what happens next with my life now that uni is over and done with. (Also, apologies for anyone who isn't as hyped about these uni update posts - normally posts will resume in two days... starting with a lush haul, woo!... Also, I promise there's only like one more photo of me in this outfit that'll be up on the blog lol) I thought it would be fun to write this little post just so I can look back in the future and see what I thought I'd be doing versus what I'm actually doing because honestly at this point I don't have a set path I want to take so in a years time I could honestly be doing anything... which is a bit scary really. But yeah, enjoy this little update post and if you're in the same boat as me at the moment - just out of uni, not really sure what to do with yourself, let me know in the comments, maybe we can help each other out! 

Part 4 | Reflecting On My University Experience


So here we are, the fourth and final part of my reflecting on university series. I really can't believe this ended up being four parts, haha! I genuinely didn't expect this end up being so long, I originally planned this out to be either one or two parts actually... but as per usual I ended up rambling a little too much, I hope you guys don't mind, haha! But yes, if you haven't already read the rest of the series you should - (start here at part one!) I've talked all about anxiety at uni, what it's like moving in with strangers and so much more.. so you should go and catch up for sure, haha! The last part is all about my third and final year of university, this year was pretty tough for me and as you guys all know (because I didn't shut up about it!) I had to write the dreaded dissertation, so this part will pretty much be discussing how the struggle was real when it came to writing my dissertation... since it took up most of my time during this year! Also, if you want to read more about my dissertation experience you can read another blog post I wrote all about it here - I talk all about what I would do differently if I could do it all over again. (God forbid, haha!) So anyway, I hope you guys have enjoyed this series - I have definitely enjoyed writing it and looking back at everything, it's surprising how much I had forgotten already so I'm hoping that I can look back on these posts in the future as a little reminder! I actually have an old planner out for writing the last part so I'm hoping that'll help me a little for this part too.. feeling very reminiscent! So, let me know in the comments below if you have enjoyed this and as always feel free to ask me any university related questions, I'd be happy to answer them!

Part 3 | Reflecting On My University Experience


Guys! I'm back, apologies again for another short break! I had a bit of a lapse in motivation so I've been patiently waiting to start feeling in the mood for blogging again.. as much as I love blogging I feel like there's no point trying to force out blog posts when I'm not feeling up to it - so here I am, blaring Taylor Swift through my headphones (because she's back on Spotify, woo!) and I'm back at it again! I say it every time but I've definitely missed blogging - it's weird how much it becomes part of your life and I definitely felt a bit lost not scheduling tweets and interacting with you guys on twitter! I've actually had such a busy few weeks away though we went to go and see Emma Blackery in London which was SO amazing, I enjoyed every second of that! I've also definitely been making the most of the gorgeous sunshine.. and may have bought a few too many bardot dresses in preparation for summer, oops! But anyway, I left you guys with my last post which was all about my first year at university (and part two of my reflecting on university series!) where I talked all about the terrible exam I had to sit, my anxiety and my bad relationship with my housemates so if you haven't already had a read of that you definitely should! Part 3 is all about (you guessed it!) my second year at uni, some really exciting things happened during my second year of uni so I can't wait to reminisce and share all the good (and bad!) times with you! I hope you're enjoying this series, let me know in the comments - I would love a little feedback! 

Part 2 | Reflecting On My University Experience


So welcome back to part 2 of my little reflection on my university experience - if you haven't already read part 1, you should because it's a good place to start! I talked all about my experiences before university - all about how I felt forced into university, how I wasn't accepted into halls and how I almost ended up living with four third year boys, it's a real treat! But yes, in this part I'm going to talk all about my first year at uni; my first ever lecture, how I made new friends, my first night out as a fresher, and getting diagnosed with anxiety As I said in the last part, my three years at uni went by in a blur so it's really nice to just sit down and reflect - I feel like my first year especially went by super quickly so I look forward to writing this and reminiscing on all the good and bad times! I'm actually sitting here writing this on a gorgeous little spot on the sea front, it's such a gorgeous day.. So naturally I'm embracing my pasty legs and working on my tan while the sea literally laps at my feet - today is a good day! (Update: I'm burnt.. what a surprise, haha!) But yeah, enough gloating.. As I said in the last part I'm always happy to answer any questions you might have whether you're already at uni or you're thinking about going - so feel free to ask away in the comments! And I hope you enjoy this little part!
