Scrapbooking | Lifestyle.
Hello and welcome to a new blog post, in todays blog post, I am going to dive into a new blog post which I haven’t done before; its quite a creative one here on my site.
For about half a year now, I have had the tools in order to create a scrapbook however, I only recently had enough time to actually sit down and start one; all thanks to university work.
Photos are a good memory holder and they can last forever with the right care given to them; I feel that photos can capture a moment beautifully without any need for words. Photos can also speak a thousand words in one simply snap-shot.
That is why I wanted to make a blog post about how I created my scrapbook and what you will need to create your own scrapbook if you choose to do one for yourself.
Also a scrapbook can also be a perfect little gift idea for any family member or friend, I recently made a scrapbook for my Dad for Fathers day, it was quite easy to make and it is such a thoughtful gift.

Exercise | Heat Edition.
Hello, I hope you are having a good day or night.
Well in todays blog; I am going to talk about how to survive exercise in hot temperatures; which England is currently having hot temperatures. I wrote a similar blog post back in December where I talked about how to survive exercise outside when it is cold, this one on the other hand is quite the opposite.If you live in the UK (Which most of my readers do); you will be experiencing a heat wave, which is what I too am experiencing at the moment.
You may think it is good as its bloody hot temperatures for once, rather than cold drizzly rain that England is used too.
On the other hand, you may have liked the heat for the first week; you know going out on the weekend to a local park etc, BBQ’ing and enjoying the weather.Then after the week, you may have wanted England to get a little colder.
Well if you agree with the second statement, then you my friend are in a similar boat with me, drifting down the river, hoping that England gets just a little colder or at least some more air so we all can breathe and walk without having buckets of water dripping from our bodies.

Loneliness | Taboo, Lifestyle.
This is quite an unusual blog post of mine, especially on the internet where people post about their lives like it’s such a ‘perfect day’ everyday that everything goes all swimmly etc etc.
I too want to challenge this but write about loneliness so here it is.
But I don’t want this blog post to sound whiny and full of complaints; though I go through some days where I feel so alone even in room with a bunch of people.
However, I have noticed over the last couple of months, people try and challenge this image of the ‘perfect’ life and post pictures on the internet about problems of their daily lives. Such as – postpartum stomach for instance; this was done after Kate Middleton was photographed just hours after her birth without a hair out of place and basically looking like her former self before she was pregnant.
I know that little paragraph doesn’t really fit into this post but I wanted to say that not everything on the internet is real; however, I do feel that people are trying to open up about thief ‘issues’ (I hate that word) and try and knock down taboo walls.

Things That You Never Knew You Needed| Bag Edition.
I was going to call this post – ‘What I Take Everywhere With Me’ but it didn’t feel right so it’s stuck with the current title.
What do you guys think of the title?
As I am writing this post, I am on a train travelling to work without my headphones. Without me drowning myself into the world of music or the world of Greys Autonomy which I have been obsessed with over the last couple of months.
I never knew how much I depended on an object like my headphones until they are gone (Milly they are not dead, they don’t have a mind of their own!) or until I have left them at home.
To stretch this matter further, I always tend to take a phone charger with my wherever I go as we all know that iPhone batteries aren’t the best but we would never change them for the world. In-fact I take two charges with me wherever I go so I won’t loose battery on my phone.
This little rant bring me onto the purpose of this post is to show you what I bring in a small-ish size makeup bag whenever I go outside (obviously if I only take a small bag, this won’t work but I take a big back with me so this problem never happens).
Let’s get into this post blog about what I carry with me every time I walk out of the house.
Year Two | What I Have Learnt At University.
Hello and welcome to another blog post, it is me again and I am trying to get back into blogging.
As I found recently I complete my blog posts on Monday night, the day before I usually post a new blog; what can mean two things –
- I am busy but this isn’t true as I tend to only focus on watching Greys Autonomy.
- The week goes that fast to the point of not remembering what day of the week is.
I tend to go with the latter, as come on I aren’t that busy as I just binge watch Greys and I am nearly on Season 9, there are 39 minute long episodes long with about 24 episodes in each season.
In today’s blog post, I am finally getting round to completing this blog post in June even though I finished university back at the end of May; but hey ho, its never too late to be honest.
This post will be about my second year of university and how I have dealt with the workload and fake people; I hope you enjoy.

Proactiv+ | Lifestyle.
Hello and welcome back. This week I am finally talking about my skincare products that I use and why I changed up my the skincare products that I used to use.
I used to use garnier micellar water quite a lot like every-time I wash my face. Now don’t get me wrong, I still think its quite a good product to use however, it wasn’t helping my skin whatsoever.
My friends and family told me about a brand called ‘Proactiv+’ which is an American brand with a three step process. I tend to ignore what they say and just go with what I think hence it took me quite a long time for me to buy the products. Anyway, I did end up buying the products and ever since then I have purchased the products again as I really like them.

Learning How To Drive | All Abroad |Tips & Tricks.
I hope you have had a good weekend wherever you live. Here in the UK, last weekend’s weather was awful, thunder and lighting all night on Saturday night and through-out Sunday too. However, this weekends weather as I am writing this blog post is quite nice – I think we can officially say its summer time – hopefully I won’t jinx it.
Before I go into this post, I do have a post that I posted last week about my driving test, check it out by clicking here 🙂
Anyway, for this second lot of blog posts to go into the series ‘all abroad’ I wanted to talk about the driving test and what you may expect throughout the test such as stressful situations and the usual stuff like panicking and what to do if you express this etc etc.
I promise this post will be shorter than the one last week.

Driving Test Experience | All Aboard | Lifestyle.
Hello and welcome back, this is going to be the first blog post of the little series called ‘All Aboard’ on my blog; I know how original. Anyway, this little series is going to be about my driving experience which is today’s post and then tips and tricks about passing your test.
Today’s blog post is going to be about my driving test experience; who to bring with you on the test day and how to tackle nerves.
Before I get into this post, for the UK tests, you can have fifteen minors in the test with no major things (like knocking into things or doing anything ilegal). Some of the minors you can have in the test is – move off from your vehicle, control of your car such as moving off and in general life I believe and any of the manoeuvres they may ask you to perform.
Let’s get cracking, shall we?

Hello and welcome back, for the last couple of months I have undergo a ‘diet’ change; if you are triggered by food or stuff like that, I don’t suggest you read this post.
Whenever people do a diet change that is quite dramatic or something that they aren’t used to, a lot of people would say to take certain foods out of a diet throughout a period of time rather than all at once in order to give your body the time that it needs to adjust.
However, I didn’t bother to do this, as on Monday (back at the end of April); I went vegetarian then on the Tuesday I cut of dairy.
Don’t get me wrong, I sometimes do eat dairy products (mainly chocolate cake or small portions of milk in quorn products or products that I didn’t know had milk in) but I do try to eat mostly freefrom dairy products as much as I can. However, there is a lot of things that have traces of milk in which I can’t control.
It feels like ages since I cut out meat however, at this point in time I feel that I won’t go back as I am not harming animals and I can honestly say my diet is so much better now as I am eating more fruit and vegetables. The other day I started to eat apples again after about eight years of not eating them and when I used to eat them, I took off the skin as I didn’t like the texture of it. That shows how much time can do for a person, it can make them eat the skin of an apple!
Now I eat apples and the skin of them haha.
Little Life Update | Royals, Wedding & Cross-Roads.
Hello and welcome back.
I first want to say sorry; sorry I haven’t really been active on here recently but I have been quite busy with university. I have had exams and assignments to complete, as some of you may know I am currently in my second year at university and May is exam season for university students, hence why blogging has taken a back seat in my life.
However, I wanted to make this blog post tonight (going up tomorrow) to let you guys know that my last exam finishes Thursday (time to cheer) and I cannot be more excited about finally getting to upload blog posts as I have missed it and I have been away from you guys (fellow bloggers) for the last month.
I also have had time to come up with a few blog post ideas which I cannot wait to share with you over the course of a couple of months.
But without further ado, this blog is like a little chat, a little mini update on what has been going on with my life. I just want to share some ideas I have for summer and what I have been up to apart from revision and assignments which isn’t much.

Gran Canaria | Holiday | Lifestyle.
Hello and welcome back to another little blog post, in today’s blog post, I just want to share some photos from my little holiday last week.
I also want to say that I am sorry that this blog post wasn’t on my usual day which is Wednesday but I didn’t want to rush this post so I thought I would post it on Friday instead.
Just before I go on, I just want to state it now that I am going to take a month of blogging as I am overloaded with work and I need to focus on revising for my exams in May but I will be back in May / June time.
So as some of you guys may now, I was quite stressed with university, to the point where I wrote a blog post about it (haha), and to cut a long story short all my family were going away for Easter and I decided to go with my Mom and step-dad.

However, I am currently away on holiday for a week but I took my laptop here so I can do some university work.
Anyway here is the blog post, below.

Easy Guide To Student Meals.
For the past couple of days I have started to feel quite proud of some of the dishes that I have made. In today’s blog post, I am going to share some of my (basic) knowledge of meals.
I was going to go through breakfast, lunch and then dinner but then I realised that I don’t have that many meals to put it into groups so it’s going to be random as per usual.

Stress Stress Stress.
It’s a horrible word, a word that no one wants to associate with, I personally don’t believe there is something called ‘good stress’ as stress in general is bloody hard work.
But hello and welcome to a little blog post, I have been struggling to managing this blog over the last month due to university being crazily busy and stuff like that. But I am quite proud that I do upload each week on this.
This week, I want to talk about stress, not just ‘stress’ but ‘stress stress stress’ – hence the title, as I believe that whenever I feel stress, it comes full force and that’s all that I can think about.

What I Pack In My Car.
So I will be going over what I put into my car and why as you may be thinking ‘Milly you don’t need a pair of trainers or soft mints’ but I have my reasons so yes I don’t know how to end this sentence.
Sit back, grab a drink as this will be another long ass blog post.

Surviving The Snow.
Let’s be real, there are half of the country that loves the snow, they can’t wait to get out to the snow, play in it, make snow humans and well the other side hate it. To put it nicely, they don’t enjoy the snow.
Whenever I can remember memories from being a child (which isn’t a lot of memories unfortunately); I didn’t mind snow. But now, being nearly twenty years old (dam where the heck has time gone!) I can honestly say I do not like the snow, nor do I actually enjoy the presence of the cold and white little droplets forming everywhere.
Especially now that I can legally drive (the blog post is here by the way); I drove the other day, first time by myself in the snow and I was a wreck.
A journey which would only take me about ten to twenty minutes actually took me half an hour; and this doesn’t count scraping off the ice and snow from my car.
So today, I am going to attempt try to give you some words of wisdom of how to survive the snow, if you are a new driver, hate the snow or just walk everywhere and still dislike the snow. On the other side, if you enjoy the snow, but get cold too, this post may become your friend.
I know, I know the snow is mostly gone now so this blog post is basically nearly irrelevant but I want to still post it as its March so I didn’t think there would be anymore snow (especially in March); so imagine my surprise when I woke up one day to a blanket of snow outside and minus how many degrees out there.
Anyway, if there is
still snow where you are living, then this post may be beneficial for you, so here it is.

The Greatest Showman.
Todays blog post wasn’t going to happen due to the fact that I have so much university work to catch-up on but I couldn’t resist writing a blog post about one of the best movies that I have seen in a long time. It is ‘The Greatest Showman’ if you haven’t guessed by the title.
The Greatest Showman came to theatre’s last December and I can honest say it is one of the best movies that I have watched in a long time.

Mental Health and University |Taboo.
Today’s blog post is a blog post that I have been thinking about for a while, mental health is still a taboo subject, even in the 21st century; so lets far it, not many people speak about it.
You would have thought by
2017 2018, it wouldn’t be a taboo subject due to the events that have been going on in the world but hey ho here we are.
Also it is University Mental Health Day on the 2nd March (Friday), which is important for mental health amongst university students.

Passed My Driving Test.
I’m so happy at the minute, it is all down to the fact that I have passed my driving test!
It only took me a couple of attempts however, I have finally passed and that is all that matters. As I have said beforehand, I have taken it a couple of times before and sadly didn’t pass due to the fact that ‘I didn’t look right’ or ‘didn’t do the roundabout right’ – okay the second one was a little bit bigger issue but oh well.
I have been taking lessons for over two years (since I was 17 and i’m now 19) so I was quite happy about it.

Detoxing Your Life |Lifestyle, Tips, Tricks and Advice.|
Do you know when you feel that you want a detox, I would just go for it.
Don’t think too much into it or you won’t do it, take it from me, I procrastinate too much about these little things.
Just do it, take the plunge, if you regret it, you can always go back, nothing is set in stone after all.
So random start to the blog post today, but over the last few days I feel that I want to get rid of things, it’s January so many people are trying to complete their New Years Revolutions still or many have given up.
I on the other hand don’t listen to all that and just decide what to do about my life as I take it.
Disclaimer: So technically it’s not a social media detox but it is a start and it’s something. I will say this now, I don’t want to get rid of my social media’s, I just want to try and live in the moment. For instance, not going on them as much as I do.
Do you get me, if you do, continue to read, if you don’t then please do still continue to read on!

Snack Attack | Lifestyle.
To be honest, I had this idea for a blog post and the title came instantly, I just think it is really simple and quite funny.
Well well well, since becoming
Ova Vegertian (well I do still consume milk products but only in really small doses) but lets just stick with Vegertain as it’s so much more simplier; I have been on a path to complete a handful of things:
- Gain weight so I feel happy in myself.
- Tone up; this one may come hand-in-hand with gaining weight but I am going to make another blog post about this as I want some help.
- And finally if I want to gain weight; I have learnt that I want to consume more snacks through-out the day as I can go without eating for about six to nine hours which I know is quite bad.
Now that you know some of the little goals that I set myself to hopefully accomplish in the future; I am going to now move onto the whole blog post.
