I am a big believer that every emotion has its purpose. To me, fear is our body’s way of telling us, “hey this is new territory, let’s take a moment and evaluate the situation.” Is this a showstopper for you or a motiver?
As a fanatic reader I have learnt the importance of reading different styles of genres. This is something I thought I would never have done ten years ago. Before I opened my mind to all types of literature, there was a time when I would only read horror/thriller novels. If you […]

It’s November. The rents been taken out. The overdraft has been well and truly broken into, so Dominos Fridays are no longer a thing. What a sad, sad sentence. I will not however be deprived of my cheesy pizza and, as if I wasn’t procrastinating enough already, I decided there […]
A lovely selection of beauty products can help us to feel pampered and rejuvenated, but when you practically need a different product for every body part, the cost can really add up. But did you know that you can make a variety of products cheaply and simply at home? With […]
I used to think that my life was pretty great – nothing was going wrong, I had a good job, great friends, and no major stressors. The only problem was that I was just letting time slip by me without being proactive, or intentional, about what I was doing with my life. I was living a life but I was not living my best life. This revelation was a life-altering for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a night out on the town… but it comes to a point when you’d rather do something that doesn’t involve alcohol. There’s no harm in drinking every now and again, but it really isn’t the be all and end all of student life. […]
Living in a city centre certainly has its benefits; the proximity to shopping, restaurants and a plethora of indoor activities. However, as a student, moving into the city was a major change for me.
