Ciaté Mini Mani Month

Although I promised myself that I wouldn't get excited about Christmas until exams finished on the 4th December, I can't help it - everything's just so damn Christmassy! 

Today, something really exciting arrived through my letterbox, the Ciaté Mini Mani Month advent calendar. 
I'm sure that if you haven't been living under a rock for the past couple of months then you'll know just how crazy the world has gone for beauty advent calendars - it seems to be the 'in' thing of the year. I'm not complaining though! 

Ciaté is definitely one of my favourite nail varnish brands, I think that the quality of the nail polishes and treatments are excellent value for money and I can't wait to try the new make up collections! 
Can we take a moment to appreciate the packaging please? 
Thank you 


So, inside the calendar are 3x nail treatments, 17x nail polishes, 1x mystery full sized bottle of nail polish, 1x glass nail file and 2x nail toppers (I think this is just glitter to you and I). 
The colours are featured on the description below 

So, if you're looking for a last minute advent calendar (or a Christmas present for a beauty addict) definitely have a look at this... 
Not sure it beats good old chocolate though ;) 

Hope you've all had a wonderful November. Have a lovely lovely 1st December and let me know what lovely advent calendars you have/ what you'll be up to this festive season.

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.

My parents and grandparents always made sure that I read or was read to every day once or twice minimum and some of my favourite memories ar…

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.

This trip seems like a lifetime ago ye…
