Life | Student Life: 5 Things To Be During Freshers Week

Hello! Firstly, those of you following me on social media might have noticed I've been a little bit off the radar recently. I've been extremely busy this past week, for one good reason - Freshers Week! And although this post comes a tiny bit late for most first-years and rather early for next year's freshers, I thought there was no time like the present to blog about my experiences of Freshers Week and how I think you can get the most out of it.

Entertainment | Once Upon A Time Tag

If you've spoken to me on any Twitter chat that involves discussing TV shows, you'll know I love Once Upon A Time. With the fifth season starting in a few days, I decided it was a good time to do the 'Once Upon A Time Tag'. I'm super excited for season 5, as it's looking like it'll be the best one yet! So without further ado...*
*This blog post will contain spoilers for seasons 1-4 of Once Upon A Time.

Homeware | Room Tour!

Hello! First of all, apologies in advance if this post ends up sounding a little rushed. I'm super busy right now with Freshers Week getting into full swing so I've just been blogging as and when I get the chance. I also apologise for the quality of some of these photos as I haven't quite got the hang of the lighting in my new flat yet.
Well, enough excuse-making, let's begin!

Two days ago (Saturday 19th September) I moved to Sheffield to attend the University of Sheffield! I'm staying in some lovely accommodation near the city centre and the university campus, with four of us sharing a kitchen/living room. It took a lot of decorative work to make my room feel a bit more homely but I'm pretty proud of how it's turned out so thought I'd give you all a peek.*

Fashion | Pins I Love #4: Accessories

One of my favourite posts to do, if you hadn't guessed already, is Pins I Love. They're fun to write and very convenient too. So as I work my way through my pinterest boards, here's the fourth instalment. This time, it's all about accessories.

Entertainment | Musical Theatre Tag

Many friends of mine, if asked how Paris feels about musicals, will probably roll their eyes and remember the countless times that I've turned everything they've ever said into some sort of musical reference. And that's me just getting started with musicals. I've always enjoyed them, but recently that love of musical theatre has gone up a notch, and I'm in the fun process of trying to discover even more of them. I'm really excited about doing this tag so, "Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention please"*...

Stationery Haul

With me starting my first year of university very soon, I happily embraced the opportunity to get myself some cute and practical stationery, and expand my existing stash of cute and practical stationery. I thought I'd talk you through what I've been buying recently, and the rest of my stash will likely make an appearance in the flat tour post I'll be doing in a few weeks.

Money | The Waterstones Card

Continuing on from my review of The Body Shop's loyalty card, I decided next to review that of Waterstones, as part of my loyalty card review series. This card has been a vital addition to my purse for a few years now and I think it's a great loyalty card to have, both for points and for other perks.

Fashion | How I Wore: Luxêmme Lilou Jumpsuit

Hello all! With Freshers Week fast approaching, I noticed rather a gap in my wardrobe. That is, a lack of 'night out' outfits. So I was delighted when Luxêmme approached me and offered me 90% off one item in exchange for a review*.

Fashion | Pins I Love #3: Outfits & Shoes

Hello everyone! Welcome to the third instalment of Pins I Love. I love showing you all the outfits I love most, whether they be my own or inspiration from someone else. So for this post, I've sorted through all my favourite 'pinspiring' outfits and shoes.

Eight Apps & Websites You Need In Your Life

In an age of smartphones, there's an app for pretty much everything. In a lot of cases, there are apps for things you didn't even know you needed an app for. The same can often be said for websites as with not everyone owning a smartphone, the world wide web is far more accessible.

Money | The NEW Body Shop Reward Scheme

A few weeks ago, I posted a review of The Body Shop's reward card. Not long after, the company completely revamped the card - making my post rather redundant. So, after my trip to London last weekend when I tried out the new card, I decided to post an update on my old review.
