Hello September

September, autumn, and hello image

I wouldn't be lying if I said I was ready for knitted jumpers, boots and scarves.
Sometimes I just feel autumn and winter suits me more!

This September holds a lot of promise for me and I could not be more excited;
starting my masters course in Cosmetics Branding and Promotion is something I've looked forward to since I applied.

Having completed the dreaded student finance and enrolled, I am now looking for some new clothes and stationary to get me in the uni spirit!

What does September hold for you?

5 Vegetarian Recipes You Must Try

Not eating meat is something I've considered for a long time. I've never been keen on cooking it and I used to pick it out of meals a lot and eat whatever was remaining.
So around 6 weeks ago I stopped altogether for numerous reasons. Since then I've wanted to spice up my meat free options and try lots of new things.

I picked 5 exciting recipes I’ve come across that I think would be great for veggies or meat eaters!

5 Problems I'm Facing in my 20's

The phrase "being in your 20's" is one I've heard millions of times but now that's me...
I'm "In my 20's" and it's come around so fast I almost feel like it knocked me off my feet.

Even though I've only just began this 10 year journey, I can feel the problems and stereotypes weighing me down already. I want to talk about them and see how everyone else is coping with the "best years of your life".

L.A Splash are a brand I discovered last summer. They came out with a range of liquid lipsticks, brightly coloured and named after (or loosely based on) Harry Potter. I ordered a few and loved their pigmentation and staying power.

Kikki K is a brand I have admired for a long time. Many afternoons at university were spent flicking between my dissertation and the internet explorer where I'd be scrolling through the pages of the Kikki K's website, lusting about over their beautiful designs.

If you've never heard of the concept of writing a letter to your 16 year old self, let me explain.
The idea is fairly simple, you, whatever age you are now, write a letter providing advice or just general babble to what was your 16 year old self. You are writing from your present to your past.
I've been wanting to do one of these for a while and thought it would be interesting to share it on my blog and and encourage others to do the same. Here goes....
