Impulse Reunion!!!

I think every girl had a can (or twenty) of Impulse when they were in primary school. And, if you are like me, it was probably the beginning of your 'I'm growing up and wearing perfume like Mummy' and also the beginning of obsessions over nice smells and morning beauty routines.

So when I received an Impulse gift set for Christmas, I was dubious at first. I thought my days of £1.99 body sprays that I had picked because of the pretty packaging and girl bands on the adverts were over. However, it seems that you can never grow out of Impulse.

Firstly, I'd just like to point some things out about Impulse that are not appreciated when initially used:
1) It's £1.99. And smells brilliant. Need I say more? You shall no longer feel guilty for spending excessive amount on perfume. AND you can buy many.
2) You can slot it in your handbag/school bag.
3) This sounds strange but it never breaks. Sometimes the aerosol breaks on products similar but Impulse has never failed me.
4) The packaging is super duper cute - they have also re-packaged it since I was 10.
5) All of the above again.


So, I received this gift set for Christmas:
From left: Very Pink body spray, toilet bag, Hot Pink shower gel
And I decided rather than worrying about my DKNY, Marc Jacobs and Jean Paul Gautier bottles getting smashed, I would take this. It was like a time vortex. I know I am not very old but sometimes it is really lovely to just be taken back to when life was much simpler. I used to love Very Pink along with True Love and Romantic Spark (back on my shopping list) and I realised quite how practical and brilliant Impulse is. 

The toilet/make up bag is brilliant for travelling and I remember Impulse shower gels being lovely too. 

I know this post is a bit strange but I do highly recommend repurchasing some of your favourite primary school 'beauty' products and taking a trip down memory lane. I have to say, the purchase has spurred many long conversations about Impulse at lunchtimes!

What were your favourite products?

P.S. I would like to add I was very grateful for the Christmas gift - when I said I was dubious I didn't mean unappreciative at all.

Sixth Form Tips

Hi everyone!

If you're in the UK you might be preparing for GCSE results day (good luck) and there's a good chance you'll be planning on starting sixth form in September - you may have already had an induction day or week.

A few of you have messaged me on Instagram asking for tips about how to approach Sixth Form so I figured it was a concern for a reasonable amount of readers. Beginning P16 can be quite daunting and I wasn't really sure what to expect so I've put together this post to give you some tips that I've discovered over my time studying A Levels.

First up, a little bit of (school) background on me just in case you're new here: I'm a 17 nearly 18 year old about to start Y13 in September at a Sixth Form in a school in North East Derbyshire (although for arguments sake we'll just say near Sheffield). I have been at the school since Y7 however the Sixth Form is quite separate from the rest of the school and so nobody walks in to A Levels knowi…

The Books That Made Me

I'm a bookworm and proud. Before I made my YouTube channel private, I made a video defending the Twilight books (or rather all books) using the collection to argue my case that if a book gets someone to read, don't shame them for reading it. I stick by that absolutely. Any reading is beneficial to a person's development, especially when that person is a child.

I've been putting off writing this post for a while because quite frankly choosing my favourite books through the years is like choosing a favourite child and it's far too difficult. Therefore, please note that not all of my favourite books will be in here.

So maybe you're looking for some holiday reading material, inspiration for books to read to younger children or just fancy reading a nice, wholesome blog post. Here is my life through books.

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.
