I’ve been working for myself for a little while now, so obviously that means that I have to self motivate a lot and ensure that may days are well spent. There’s no better feeling than shutting your laptop and plonking yourself on the sofa for an evening with Netflix after a productive day. So with that in mind, I thought I’d do a little blog post of some tried and tested (by me) tips that I find really help me get through my daily to-do lists.
Hello and Happy New Year! It’s slightly (very) belated but better late than never eh? My January, as I’m sure is the case with many others, has been accompanied by the dreaded winter cold/sickness bug/general feelings of unwellness. My very generous boyfriend, always eager to share, passed me over his cold symptoms and of course I just had to top it by adding in some vomit too – charming, I know. So whilst I’m feeling sorry for myself on the sofa, I thought I’d share a recent outfit I shot with Dan last week, aka the good old times when I had my health.
I don’t know about you but I’m always drained and exhausted in January. It’s back to work, throwing yourself into your new year’s resolutions and trying to restrain yourself from ordering that pizza (I did fail at this yesterday). You feel like you should be refreshed after a week off at Christmas, but let’s face it – it’s never a relaxing period and you feel like you could do with another week to recover.
I’ve got to admit, I was never one of those people who invested in classic pieces. I’ve been a student for the majority of my life so far so it’s only been in the last year or so that I’ve been able to do so. To be clear, I by no means have the money to spend hundreds of pounds on a piece of clothing, but with a bit of budgeting I can occasionally fork out that little bit more on pieces that I know will stand the test of time.
September has come around again (how???) and that means thousands of 18 year olds are travelling to unfamiliar cities across the country to start their next chapter. Liverpool is no exception and as students are starting to arrive I’m becoming painfully aware that this is the second year that I’m not one of them. When did I get so old? I swear I just finished my A-Levels five minutes ago. Don’t get me wrong, I’m SO thankful that I’m past the days of staying in the library until the early hours of the morning before a deadline (5:30am on one occasion – F U dissertation), but there are some things that make me envious of students.
