Desk Tour

I uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel yesterday:


I worked pretty hard on this video, so I thought I would cross post it over here, with a few extra pictures.

I'd really appreciate if you took 3 minutes to watch it!

Thanks!

Playlist of March

Hello everyone!

This month has been an amazing month for music, and I really wanted to get this out while I had time. By that I mean whilst I wait for my dad to come pick me up from university because I don't think I can carry this suitcase full of textbooks any further than straight to the car.

Anyway yes, I've gotten into tons of new music this month that I cannot wait to share with you right here!

You can check out last month's here.

Our Own House (Album) - Misterwives


I started this month with listening to Misterwives, a band I'd never listened to before! Their album, Our Own House, is so upbeat and uplifting, it's been really great to listen to on the way to and from university. The titular song, 'Our Own House' is my favourite, I also really like 'Best I Can Do'.

Reading, Read and to Read #3

Hello everyone!!

It's now Easter break, which is great, even though it means revision! I don't have a job at the minute, so that means I'm going to have plenty of free time. Sadly though, my flat in Liverpool is much more photogenic than my bedroom at home. It will do for a few pictures and videos though!

Today it's time for March's Reading, Read and to Read! These are my favourite posts to make, I'm not entirely sure why, but this month I have been reading loads and I've completely fell in love with it again. Though, I read in bed before I go to sleep, so my sleep has been suffering because I keep reading until 1am when I need to get up early- oops!

If you want to catch up on last month's, here's the link.

Let's dive in!!

Sometimes you're a caterpillar

Hello everybody,

I am sorry for my lack of posts right now, it's the last week of the semester before the Easter break, and it's been hectic! It's deadlines everywhere, plus I had a filling yesterday and my face is aching all over because of it.

So today I thought I would post a video that I think you all should watch:


It explains intersectionality and privilege in an easy to understand, and visually enjoyable way to watch!

This video is only 3 minutes long, and I think it's a very important thing to watch, and share. 

Privilege is a thing that is very easy to overlook, or not even realise you have. We don't come out of the womb socially aware after all, it takes time for us to realise what the world, and society is like. 

If you want to see more of Chescaleigh and Kat Blaque, click on their names to be taken to their Twitter accounts!

Thanks for reading, see you later!

Cards to brighten your day


A few weeks ago, after I (finally) received all of my coursework and exam results from this past January, my sister Suzanne posted me this card. The design is great, and she also says that it looks like me. Which it kinda does, only I have the top of my skull.

Robb Stark Art Print

Hello everyone, sorry I haven't posted as much as I usually do! The days seem to be coming and going so fast, and suddenly it's 5 days since I've posted anything.



Yesterday, I visited one of my favourite shops in Liverpool, Nook and Cranny on Bold Street. I need to take my camera next time, to take some pictures to share on here, since it's so nice and pintrest and has some absolute baller stuff. The cards are bloody amazing especially.

Pin board personality!

Hello everybody!

Today I'm going to be sharing with you the pin board that I have in my room at University.

Most university halls, flats and a few houses come with a pin board nowadays. Now I'm thinking about that, and I'm kinda confused. I guess it's to hang your timetable and university related things. 

That isn't what I've done with mine though!


Mine is covered in postcards and the such like!

Pretty much all of them I've bought from Paperchase, the best stationary store in the history of the forever, for 60p each!! That's a bargain!

Generally, I go in and buy 4 or so at a time, so it's only £2.40 at once!

Inspirational Women

Yesterday was International Women's Day, and thus I decided to tweet out pictures of a few women who are extremely inspirational.

This was actually retweeted by one of the women featured, Rosie, better known as Roxeterawr. And it ended up causing my notifications to go mental for a long time.

Here are just a few of the women who inspire me everyday:

Emma Watson


I've always admired Emma Watson for crushing it as Hermione Granger, and also for doing better than me in her A Levels whilst FILMING HARRY POTTER!

Her philanthropic work, especially in the UN, and creating heforshe  and her fight for equal rights for women, are few of the reasons why I find her so incredibly inspiration.

Star Wars Haul

As a celebration for good results, working hard, getting everything done days before I needed to, and because of a general need for a new pair of jeans, I went shopping today.

I don't go shopping that often, especially when considering I live within walking distance of a few shopping centres and a LOT of shops in Liverpool city centre/L1.

 Today was a treat. Especially as it's a Thursday, and I've spent the majority of the last few weeks working. At least during the week days. I know that's what most people in the world do, but even with having a day off or two in the uni week, I tend to spend it working instead of going out somewhere. (#dedicatedstudent-ish)

Here's what I bought:



Star Wars T-Shirt - £10 (£9 with student discount!) from Topman (in the sale!)

I LOVE this shirt! There are a billion Star Wars shirts out there, but something about this one made it a must buy. Which is odd, considering I tend to avoid anything featuring the 'bad guys' and would rather have a hero proudly adorned on my chest!

But the vintage looking shot of Vader looks amazing in the logo!!

Playlist of February

I probably should have posted this in February, rather than on 4th March.

Especially as now all the music I'm listening to can't go onto this post! I have to wait until next month! 

I generally intend to make this a Spotify thing, linking my personal playlist at the end, updated with all of the songs I have been obsessed with throughout the month, however for the majority of February, I was listening to an album that isn't on Spotify.

And you can probably guess what album that is, from the last sentence there.

Yes, I have been obsessed with 1989 by Taylor Swift. And I'm only a million months late to it!

DON'T GIVE UP ON THINGS

Hello everybody!!

Today's post is a casual reminder to NOT GIVE UP ON THINGS. 

So I used to run a lot. Like 3/4 times a week. And I did this in anticipation of doing a 5 mile run, which I ran and completed, without struggling too much! After that, I just stopped running. I had no goal in mind and never did it.

Here we are 2 years later, I went on a 3 mile run this afternoon. Which required a lot of stops and a lot of panting in front of many, many people, because it was 1:30pm in a city. If I hadn't completely cut running out of my life, this wouldn't be something I needed to do! Whilst, I am loving getting back into running, imagine how good I could be if I never stopped! I could have done 10kms, half-marathons, maybe even a full marathon!

I got to run past horses when I was at home. That was fun. Even if I look like I'm about to keel over.
