University of Leicester Freshers Advice and Tips

freshers

I know a lot of these university posts are going up at the moment and they’re all kind of generic and offer the same sorts of advice, so I thought I’d make mine a little more University specific, for anyone who might be heading to the University of Leicester in October. There is some good general advice for anyone going to university but if you’re headed to UoL then hopefully this’ll help!

Mid Month Favourites: August 2014

april 2014

Now I don’t know about you guys but at the beginning/end of the month my blog feed is always clogged up with monthly favourite posts (which I enjoy reading, but I hate that they all come at the same time and get a bit repetitive). So I’ve decided I’m going to do mid-monthly favourites. Now I’m not trying to claim this as some new kind of innovation but I just thought I’d let you guys know my reasoning behind the change! So here are my August mid month favourites; beauty, fashion, tv and other!

I have to confess that Zara has been one of my favourite clothing stores for a very long time but if there is one thing they are getting bang on the money right now it’s their necklaces! I hate to say it but they are the bomb dot com, if you don’t believe me then why don’t you  take a look for yourself?!

Empties: Love, Like or Loathe

empties

This is my first ever empties post on the blog and it’s really only a smallish one. Since I’ve never done one before I haven’t really been saving up many of my empty products to show you, but I came across a few all at once and decided to give it a go. If it’s a success I might have to start storing things up for these posts!

The Maze Runner Triology Review

the maze runner review

I finished The Maze Runner Trilogy a little while back and I thought I’d do a review of the books before the film gets released in September. I may do a follow up review on the film depending on whether I have an strong feelings about it at the time. What I will say at the moment is that I think the casting is pretty good visually, I guess we’ll have to see if that carries through to their acting, and I hope they do a good job on the villains too!

MY THOUGHTS ON THE MAZE RUNNER TRIOLOGY…
