My Year At A Glance | 2017

It’s officially the last day of 2017!
I can’t quite believe that an entire year has passed by and by midnight tonight a brand new one will have begun. I’m actually having quite a relaxed evening in tonight with my family as opposed to a big night out. We’ll be drinking lots of champagne and playing lots of board games and I cannot wait!
I figured I would end my final post of the year with a chatty look back on 2017 (because right now I seem to be loving the casual, rambly posts) and talk through any of the significant things that have happened to me/see how well I did with my goals.

Small Ways You Can Make A Difference This Christmas

I can’t quite believe that tomorrow is christmas eve and there’s only one more week left of 2017! I know people say this every year but I honestly feel like I have just blinked and 2017 has gone. I’m so excited for the festivities over the next few days though and to end the year on a positive note! For the past few months my posts have been very all over the place (I blame university), but I couldn’t let christmas pass me by without getting at least one festive post up, so, today I thought I would share some small but wonderful ways that you can help to make a difference this christmas!

5 Life Lessons I Learnt At 22

If you follow me over on instagram *which btw I’m way more active on right now than this blog*, then you may have seen that last month it was my 23rd birthday! For the past 2 years I’ve acknowledged my birthday on this blog with a chatty post about my birthday celebrations but I though this year I would shake things up a bit and do a post about 5 life lessons I learnt in my year of being 22. I know a lot of people do things like '22 things I learnt at 22' but the older I get the more difficult that will become so I figured it was best to just stick to 5!

A Rambly Post About Pushing Yourself

I said in my last update post that I was hoping to not go weeks without posting anything… turns out I’ve ended up taking a whole month away! I have felt so much guilt these past few weeks over not posting anything on this blog but I’ve had to put university first for a while. I’m thankfully now gearing towards my final deadline before the christmas break and I shouldn’t have another huge surge of work again until January so, hopefully, I can get myself on top of things!
I wanted to write a post today about the topic of pushing yourself, as this is something that’s currently very important in my life right now and I feel like I need to share all of the thoughts currently going on inside my head. I don’t really have a structure for this and I haven’t written in a long while so apologies if this is super rambly/makes no sense/a complete mess!

Book Of The Month | Uprooted By Naomi Novik

'Agnieszka loves her village, set deep in a peaceful valley. But the nearby enchanted forest casts a shadow over her home. Many have been lost to the Wood and none return unchanged. The villages depend on an ageless wizard, The Dragon, to protect them from the forest's dark magic. However, his help comes at a terrible price. A young village woman must serve him for ten years, leaving all she values behind. 
Agnieszka fears her dearest friend Kasia will be picked at the next choosing, for she's everything Agnieszka is not - beautiful, graceful and brave. Yet when the Dragon comes, it's not Kasia he takes'.

Life Update | University And Birthdays

I can’t tell you how nice it is to finally be able to take a minute to myself and sit down to write a blog post. I haven’t uploaded anything for the last few weeks because I’m a completely unorganised person and I didn’t think to get some posts pre-written before the craziness that is my third year at university began. I have felt quite guilty at the fact that I’ve had to neglect this blog, but I keep reminding myself that this is after all just my hobby and that I need to not make myself busier and more stressed than I need to be.
Given that I have been absent for a few weeks, I thought I would take todays post to update you guys on what I’ve been up to!
