I have learned a lot about friendships over the years. When I moved away from home to study at uni, I began to realise the importance of friends that will always be there to help you through the harder times, as well as being there to enjoy the best bits. Friendships naturally come to an end, often allowing others to begin. One thing that I have noticed on social media over the last year is an increase in the number of people that say you should ‘cut people out’ if they ‘don’t deserve you’, and similar inspirational quotes. I completely agree with this. In fact, at times I may have gone too far.
Here is my advice to you.
I went on an adventure at the weekend. It was technically a work trip, as I had to write an article for one of my magazines we create, but it was a lot of fun. I got to stay in a lovely country hotel, eat incredibly fancy food, and have a spa day. As far as weekends go, it was pretty great.
I vlogged the whole trip especially for you, so put the kettle on, sit down, and have a watch. Then come back and read my review of the trip. Enjoy!
It has been a fairly long time coming, but I have finally found the time to answer the ’25 questions tag’ after Kat so kindly tagged me a few weeks ago.
If you’ve ever wanted to know a bit more about me, prepare to be amazed.
From the best burgers to dream holidays, all shall be revealed!
It has been over a year since I finished my University degree. Writing that feels bizarre, as it seems like the last 12 months have stretched into feeling like a lifetime, and yet it still doesn’t feel that long ago. If you’re graduating in 2016, I know exactly how you’re feeling. Excited about new opportunities, incredibly sad about leaving uni life behind, and also terrified that you’ll never make anything of your life. It’s a tough time, but I’m here to promise you that it will all fall into place somehow.
If you’d told me that I would have moved to London within three months of finishing my degree, got a job that I absolutely love, and be living on my own, I don’t think I would have believed you. And yet all that did happen, and I’ve become completely self-sufficient.
There’s no denying that the first year outside of education is terrifying – but you can get through it. Here’s how.
My fringe and I have a love-hate relationship. When I sat in the hairdressers chair back in October 2013 watching my long side fringe falling on the floor, I couldn’t stop smiling. Dramatically changing your hairstyle is always worrying, especially when you have no idea what you’ll look like after the change. Luckily for me, I’ve decided that I suit my full fringe and I’ve kept it ever since.
But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have our issues. Since then, I’ve wanted to grow it out every few months, but never seem to commit. Yes, there are definitely good parts and bad parts…
