Study Techniques 2018:

Hello Everyone,

Exam season is upon us and one of my most requested posts is surrounding the topic of revision and studying for exams. I just want to make a quick disclaimer and say that these techniques may not work for you and I'm not saying that these are the only ways that you can revise. Also if you do know of any other techniques that I haven't mentioned then please leave them in the comments.

1) Past Papers: This is personally my favourite way to revise because it takes into consideration the application of knowledge rather than just reading over your notes. However, these past papers can be quite difficult to get hold of with the new GCSE's and the linear A-Levels, but I'm sure if you ask your teacher they can provide you with some sample questions. When using this method, you also have to keep in mind that you can then use the mark scheme and previous student responses to the exam questions.

2) Flashcards: There are two main ways that you can do this, firstly…

University plans:

Hello Everyone,

I'm at that stage in my educational journey where university is looming and I have to begin seriously thinking about whether I want to get myself into thousands of pounds worth of debt or enter the workplace. My career prospects have varied, to say the least... when I was younger I wanted to be a beautician, then I wanted to be a vet so I took all sciency academic subjects at GCSE - later realising that I hated anything to do with science, developed a fear of needles and almost pass out at the sight of blood (so definitely not the career for me.) After that, for a while, I had my heart set on becoming a barrister which I still love the sound of however after going to a taster A-Level lesson in Law I found it incredibly dull. Inevitably leaving me with my backup career... journalism specialising in either politics or fashion - both of which were realistic considering my passion for the subject areas.

Now over 6 months into my A-Levels (which I have a whole post on)…

Coachella/Festival Essentials

Hello Everyone,

Festival season is fast approaching and fashion outlets have started to stock up on the chunky sequin dresses. In today's post, I will be going through what I believe to be festival essentials!

1) GLITTER... LOTS OF IT! ⭐
If you've been reading this blog for a while then you would know that last year I went to SITC and I went full out there with the glitter, I have a tutorial up on how to recreate my glitter roots if you're interested. There are so many ways you can incorporate glitter into your festival look + you can pick chunky glitter up super cheap on places like eBay! I would recommend that if you have a slightly higher budget perhaps looking at Gypsy Shrine because they are the go-to store for all things glittery!

2) COMFORT! 👠
If you are going to a festival, expect to do a lot of walking or standing, therefore I would recommend investing in a pair of shoes that you will be comfortable in. Obviously the type of shoes you choose will depend on the sty…

Daytime - Evening Fashion Transformation:

Hello everyone,

The transition between daytime to evening styles can be complex especially if you're always on the move; however, I've found that you can easily dress up a pair of jeans to suit the majority of occasions...
Like always I will try to link everything I'm wearing so that if you're interested you can take a look.

Firstly the daytime outfit consisting of a fairly casual look with the ripped mom jeans and a slogan tee. I layered this with a leather jacket - a top tip when it comes to switching up outfits with perhaps a capsule wardrobe (which by no means do I have 😂) is investing in good jackets. I like to call these transitional jackets - you can wear a standard outfit, for example, a pair of jeans and a white tee then make it exciting and unique with a nice jacket. If you would like to see a jacket collection post then let me know! Then, in terms of accessories, I wore my black patent backpack so that I could have my hands free then had my black old skool…
