So my birthday passed over a month ago but as we all know, this post always goes up late due to later gifts. I'm always grateful for any gifts at all and I'm always so astounded by how much thought went into them! I also did my own treat-myself spree on the weekend of my… Continue reading A 21st Birthday [Mostly Beauty] Haul
Hi Everyone! Yeah, that's right. Somehow, I managed to go an entire year spending less than £100 on makeup for myself as a result of the lipstick ban due to a knock-on effect on the rest of my makeup. I did notice, however, that I acquired a Very Tall reading pile that I haven't touched… Continue reading A New Year, a New Challenge: BOOK BUYING BAN!
Hi Everyone! Another year has passed and we are at 20S' FOURTH year! That's insane. I know, I say this every year, but that's really just amazing. Life for me is getting much, much busier now but I am hoping to keep up the blogging at least - I've realised this blog is how some… Continue reading Four Years of Twenty Swans!!!!
Hi everyone! I have something a little different today - I wanted to share my experience seeing a play recently. I have always wanted to see more theatre - my Royal Shakespeare Company discount card and loyalty card remain unused at the moment! This was a short-notice event for me but I don't regret a… Continue reading Spotlight: Orange Polar Bear at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre

Hi everyone! I think it's been AGES since I last did an editorial like this, so I am really eager to share what I have been watching, reading and listening to over the last few months. Netflix First off, I have recently gotten Netflix, and by that I mean my boyfriend's. I had a trial… Continue reading Autumn Media Edit 2018
Hi everyone! Just like that, the summer is gone. My new timetable is here, the new academic year is well on its way and for the third year in a row, I have not blogged almost all summer. I spent most of it at work and playing games... I didn't actually wear that much makeup… Continue reading [Makeup and Chatter] Back at University
Hi everyone! It's been a good month and a half since my last post. I made sure to take some time off after exams to chill then ended up diving into part-time work in a slightly drastic change to my routine that took some time to adjust to. I've managed to get a little bit… Continue reading Another Catch Up
I think over the last year or two I may have attempted to draft out this post four or five times. As I wrote this very first paragraph for this working draft, it was January of 2018. I knew I wanted to put this up eventually, and I felt like it was approaching the right… Continue reading [Chatter] At Last, Let’s Talk About Depression.
I'm sure it happens to a lot of us. I've noticed recently that I go through these phases of being very talkative, oversharing and social, then feeling very very quiet and reserved, and wanting to keep to myself as much as possible. Even now, I don't feel like writing a lot. I don't particularly feel… Continue reading [Chatter] A Quiet Evening
