5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

5 Things I'm Loving Right Now |
Hello world, I seem to have jumped back on the blogging train. It's not that I've run out of inspiration, you should see the length of my blog post ideas list, but it's the lack of time. And daylight. How do you all find time and enough light to take decent photos? Please tell me your secrets.

I've been so busy. It's my final year of university, so that has definitely been keeping me occupied, and that alongside working, trying to maintain a social life and not stressing myself out too much has kept me from finding time to blog. But yeah, here I am.

I've actually had an enjoyable few weeks. My sister came to visit last week and us two and Caitlin went to see Catfish & The Bottlemen. Despite the next level disorganisation from the train companies (note: 1 train to the venue with 1 carriage every hour is NOT enough, and having the last train at 22:30 is also not very convenient), it was SUCH a great gig. It's my second time seeing Catfish and they definitely did not disappoint. I also went home for a weekend which was really nice and it was good to chill out for a couple of days. I've had a couple of fun nights out, my best friend visiting, a shopping trip to Birmingham, another gig (keep reading for more about that) and I've just felt pretty content. I'm doing my best not to let Uni stress and post-uni-life worries get to me, and this post has helped to remind me that there are some lovely things in my life right now.

My New Bullet Journal Setup for University

Bullet Journal for University Setup |

My favourite thing about starting a new academic year was always stationery shopping. In anticipation I bought a new bullet journal in my fairly large Paperchase haul just before university started, and I've finally finished my old one so I thought I'd give you a little, photo-filled tour of my new one.

My last bullet journal was quite different, as I was mostly working full time while using it, but now I am back at university I wanted it to be more study focused and less blogging/life focused (I also mostly organise blogging on my laptop anyway and it became a bit underused). I also wanted to incorporate more art, especially watercolour, as I love having an aesthetically pleasing bullet journal, it also gives me reasons to get my paints out which is very therapeutic. However I'm trying to keep my daily/weekly logs a lot more minimalistic and practical. I guess we'll see how this turns out!

University Room Tour

University student room tour |

Another university year, another room tour post. I think one of my favourite things about starting a new year is having a new room to decorate and make my own. I love trying to make it as cosy and homely as humanly possible. I'm so happy with my room this year, I think it's my favourite so far and I wanted to share some snapshots of how it's turned out. I hope you're prepared for a lot of pics!
