Life Lately #3


Hello again! Apologies again for the slightly messy blogging schedule that is going on just now. It looks like it may be a while before I get back to my regular schedule again with my own technical difficulties, sigh! Anyway it is a little later than usual for one of these posts but better late than never, eh! Since I haven’t been blogging much, I thought it would be nice to update you all on life-y things at the moment. So obviously with lack of IT going on, I have been having plenty of non-techy, less online beauty browsing days which in a way has been nice to have more time offline and has made me realise how much I waste time online browsing! So once I am back to normal, maybe I will see a little reduction in the amount of time I actually spend online! I am thinking of doing a post about spending time offline so check back soon for that!

March saw things dramatically change from a storm to quietness. I am just about finished my second year at university (except exams) with the start of the month looming with coursework deadlines til now were I am trying to find something to do! It has been such a relief though getting a ton of work out of the way and it means I can focus on finishing the year! Also, it has been nice to have a few holidays with Easter Break to finalise everything!

Other than uni, I am still on the spring cleaning front. My wardrobe has took a major hit since I have cleared out a ton of clothes over the last few months but I still have a lot of things I want to clear out. I may do a post in the future about my wardrobe and cleaning it out etc. if that is something that anyone wants to see? Speaking of my wardrobe, I have also been having a clothes moment, pretty much wanting to buy a new thing for everything I throw out! I am really trying to find perfect pieces that fit my wardrobe tastes now and just have a small quality collection of clothes. Quite the contrast from my makeup collection then…

On the topic of clothing, I have felt really inspired lately and been in thought about what I buy and where from. I watched the documentary ‘The True Cost’ which I truly recommend to watch as it gives you a great insight as to how the clothing we wear is made and essentially the true cost behind that less than a fiver tee from Primark. I don’t want to go into too much detail as I may cover the topic of ethical clothing in a separate blog post. Essentially though, the documentary has changed my viewpoint of where I buy clothing and my viewpoint on consumerism. It is a highly interesting watch and the scene showing the crazed shoppers on Black Friday really puts things into perspective.

How did you spend the month of March?

Life Lately #2

Life Lately FebruaryAnother month of 2016 coming to an end, crazy eh! February has been fairly quiet but busy at the same time (does that even make sense!?). I never really got up to anything too exciting but as usual life took over and I’ve been feeling rather overwhelmed with blogging, work and uni at the same time. I am kind of preparing myself to be hit with a ton of workload over the next month as uni deadlines are looming. Sigh. I am trying to be a lot more organised though and get on with the work much earlier so hopefully I won’t be suffering too much! In terms of blogging, I have to admit I have been feeling like I am in a bit of a rut lately. I have been trying to mix things up a little and move away from constant reviews after reviews although I am struggling for ideas and I always feel a little out of my comfort zone with some things. It’s difficult trying to add a little more creative edge to my posts when I don’t have a lot of time to work on them so hopefully this is something that I will conquer in the next while especially when I have more free time. Of course, if anyone has any feedback on what kind of posts you like then that would be much appreciated!

Anyway woes aside, I’ve been getting pretty organised this month. I am pretty sure I have mentioned before how I’ve been trying to downsize my wardrobe and basically de-clutter all my junk. I’ve really cut down the amount of unused clothes taking over my wardrobe which feels like such a relief and weight off my shoulders. I am also at the moment trying to rearrange how I organise all my clothes too and after watching a Lily Pebbles video I discovered a much better way to organise my t-shirts in my drawers. Using Marie Kondo’s method, my clothes now sit upright instead of stacked which means I can now see all my clothes in front of me rather than simply picking the first in the pile. After cleaning out one of my drawers I also made some room for my nail polish collection. I’ve always wanted it stored in my drawers so I am super happy to have it laid out like this. Hopefully over the next month I can do some more organising and get my wardrobe sorted! Can you tell I take pride in weird things?

My organising ways couldn’t come at a better time too as Spring is definitely on the horizon. I don’t know about anyone else but I am forever getting sick of the cold and rainy weather. The last week though has seen the sun come out and much lighter mornings and evenings too which has me super excited for the new season to begin! I can’t wait to start wearing lighter clothing and start on my Spring clothing wishlist! So hopefully next month there will be a lot of Spring stuff on the blog!

Catch up on February posts: Tartelette 2 palette review, Mac 90s nude lip edit, Skincare empties, Tips for on a budget, White chocolate chunk brownies recipe, Inside my Beauty sample box and How to overcome Winter blues.
