Going Vegetarian

Going Vegetarian - My Experience + Tips |

Since having a break from my blog, I've been trying to decide whether I want to talk about this subject on here or not. It's definitely not a usual topic of mine, but it's something I've become really interested in and definitely want to discuss with you guys.

One of my New Year resolutions was to cut meat out of my diet. Before Christmas I had managed to cut it down to eating meat only twice a week and honestly, I didn't find it that hard, so I vowed in the New Year to stop eating meat altogether. So since then, I've been a vegetarian.

Bullet journal walkthrough 2.0

Bullet Journal Walkthrough |

I've been so excited to share this post and so eager to prepare it. I love sharing my journal with you guys and from the feedback I get, I think you guys seem to love seeing it too.

I bought a new bullet journal after filling my second one and decided to change things up. Normally I go for this Paperchase journal which I love for the variety of pages, but I wanted to try something new. I chose this Muji notebook - it's thinner and lighter to carry, dotted pages and still ringbound. It's also cheaper! So far, I love it.

Anyway, here's a (rather picture-heavy) look through my bullet journal:

Hello strangers

Hello humans on the internet. 

Where the hell have I been, you're probably wondering. Or not, who knows.

Well, to be honest, I have been super busy, but not with anything that exciting to report on. I'm super sorry for neglecting my blog for this long, but I'm back now!

The most exciting thing I can tell you is that I'VE FINISHED MY MOTHER EFFING DEGREEEEEE. I've been working so hard and now I've finally finished, I have so many emotions right now. Relief, excitement, sadness, pride, nervousness. So many feels.

I've spent 4 years at Warwick and with that I have had the BEST time of my life but it's been so tough too. I won't hide that fact. University comes with a lot of challenges, not just multiple deadlines in one go and difficult coursework and stressful exams, but personal challenges as well. You grow a lot as a person.

I've had so many amazing opportunities though, I've met my best friends (shout out to Caitlin and Melissa for being my absolute rocks this year), played polo and got to ride in some university tournaments, travelled lots, lived for a year in Germany, studying and interning and I started my blog and that's been a whirlwind of fun itself. I've learnt so much, not just with course content but about myself. I can't quite get my head around the fact that my education is over. I'm not sure I'm ready for it to be over. But here's to the next chapter of my life!

Now my exams are over and I can think about other stuff than German grammar and international business frameworks, I want to put some of my energy back into this blog. I'm looking forward to returning to this creative outlet again and I hope you'll enjoy some of the posts I've got lined up.

Thank you for sticking around guys. I can't wait to share the next bit of my life with you all.

Getting my first tattoo

First tattoo experience |
Last week I got my first tattoo. It’s something I’ve been working the courage up to do for years. I’ve always admired them and think they can be incredibly beautiful, and I’m so proud of myself for finally taking the plunge and get one done.

I found my artist on Instagram, she was based in Coventry and I loved all her work. Then I noticed one of my friend’s tattoos on her feed so I dropped her a message and he couldn’t recommend her enough. Decision made.

I love botanical tattoos and I had an idea in mind of a little bouquet of flowers, black and grey and dotwork shading. My journal is filled with drawings like this and it just felt very ‘me’. Before you wonder, there’s no real meaning behind it. I just love the design. I was quite adamant I didn’t want my first tattoo to be one with a deep meaning, and I think I made the right decision as I’ll touch on later.

University Bucket List

University Bucket List -
I can’t quite believe how quickly time has gone. It barely seems like a year ago I was excited about going to uni, and now in less than 2 months, I will have walked out of my last exam and my education will be over. My degree, that I’ve put so much energy and time into for the last 4 years, will be finished.

I’m busy writing my final essay and revising for my exams, but I thought I’d put together a little bucket list of all the things that I’ve done at uni and still want to do, partly for me, partly for you guys. Whether you’ve been to university and you want to see how much you’ve ticked off, or you’re heading to university this year, I thought this might be fun to share.

A London Photo Diary

London |

Back at the beginning of February, Luke and I headed down to London for a little weekend away on our weekend off to spend some time together. Between work, uni and other stuff going on, we don't actually get to spend that much alone time together so it was really nice to just enjoy each other's company while exploring London and visiting some favourite places there.

5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

Shelfie |
I haven't yet done one of these posts this year, and I love writing them, so I thought I’d fill you in on some of the things I’m currently obsessing over.

My life got a bit crazy recently when I had 3 deadlines all within a couple of weeks of each other, and stress hit me hard. I’ve also been pretty ill since the start of term with a horrible cold that I've only just managed to get over, so January wasn’t the best of months, but I still managed to find things that boosted my mood.
