Going Dairy Free

Anyone who knows me will know that cheese is my life and I would do anything for a cheese and ham toastie or a camembert. So this is probably quite an alarming statement I’m making. Before you ask, yes I am okay, and no I have not been taken hostage and am being forced to be without cheese.

The Beginning of the End…

Bit of a dreary title, but I’m nothing if not dramatic. What I mean by ‘the beginning of the end’, is that this week is my first week of my last year at University. Hence, the end being near! I feel the dramatic tone is justifiable, more because I actually have no idea where the time has gone and how I have now become a scary Third Year. Seems a kind of weird, grown up term that applies to people who know what the hell they are doing with their life.  Continue reading “The Beginning of the End…”

Guess Who’s Back

Long time no see, hey? Have no fear, I am still alive! It actually saddened me to see that I hadn’t blogged in 5 months. Not good. I don’t even really have an excuse for it, I just got caught up in assignments at the end of the semester and I’ve been working full time in the pub over the summer ever since. I have had so much I have wanted to share and have wanted to write about but lets face it, I’m super lazy. Then more and more time passed and my poor little corner of the internet was left abandoned. But hopefully for no longer!

Sometimes I find it hard to find the motivation to blog, and to think of content and I hate the laziness in me that stops me from doing the things I love. My site makes me happy and I love looking back at all the things I have done and so I need to get my ducks in a row and get back to it!

I have also missed all of you guys in the wonderful blogging community and I hope you’ll have me back!

Much love x

London Fashion Week 2017

Last month I was lucky enough to be able to attend a couple of shows at London Fashion Week, with Backstage Tales. I’ve recently started writing for the online magazine and was actually pretty nervous when I was asked to go along and write an article! I’ve never been a fashion kind of person. I love clothes and tries to keep up with trends but I will never be cool enough to wear all of these weird and wonderful designs.

What we did for my Birthday

The January blues never hit me too hard as my birthday falls at the end of it! This year I didn’t really feel like I had much of a run up to my birthday. Usually the weeks drag by and the birthday excitement builds, but this year I have been so ridiculously busy that the time went by so quickly. I barely even blinked after Christmas and then it was my birthday weekend! I say weekend – no one ever just has one day for their birthday – but my birthday was on a Saturday this year which is always fun, and definitely means you need the whole weekend.

Liebster Award – We’ve Been Nominated! 

Wow! I always see these types of awards going round the internet and never thought that one would come along my way. But thanks to the wonderful Victoria C Rae , Life of Lauraa has been nominated for the Liebster Award. From reading a bit about this I found out that it’s an award to promote bloggers and to discover new blogs and make friends within the bloggy community!

2017, lets do this!

Last year I set myself resolutions and I don’t think I achieved any of them. In fact I can’t even remember what they were. It was the only year I think I have ever set resolutions, as it’s something I don’t usually do, and apparently for good reason! So no resolutions for me this year. But just some more positive thinking, letting go of the past and focussing on me and my life.   Continue reading “2017, lets do this!”

Countdown to Christmas

Anyone who knows me will know that Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year. I’m currently writing this post in my overly, in-your-face festive room, next to my mini Christmas tree and my three advent calendars. Excessive doesn’t even cover it. But what is the point of trudging through the year without a massive celebration at the end to celebrate that you made it through another year!

Surprise Weekend

So it turns out I have the best family any one could ask for. This semester of uni has been a bit of a roller coaster for me, both emotionally and physically and I would never be able to get through it without my wonderful family and amazing friends. This has been the longest time I have gone at uni without visiting home and it was getting to the point where I just needed a break and was really home sick.

The Mid-Semester Slump

I feel quite ashamed at myself for letting myself slack on blogging. It’s bad and I should get back into dedicating more time for it. But I’m not going to dwell too much on that. This is kind of how I think every university student is feeling about life right now. It gets to that stage in the semester where you’ve had the first few weeks of having fun and getting back into a routine, and then the assignments kick in, and the hard work starts.
