The Dress Up Gig Guide

Image
It's a weird time of year for gigs, you don't want to be freezing in the queue outside but you don't want to be melting when you get inside either. Having to carry a big coat around is no fun when you're someone who likes to go into the pits and have a jump about. There's that good middle ground really, between being warm but not boiling and dressing efficient. You also have to make sure you're comfy in what you're wearing because it's a lot of standing for something you're gonna be in pain in. I thought I would go through my guide for gig fashion, how to combat the sweatty heat inside and battle the cold in that long queue. 

Jackets are key here, the coats are all good and well but they don't belong at a gig unless you're lucky enough to find a place with a cloakroom in which good luck with that £3 cloakroom charge. For me I always take a jacket that keeps me warm but stops that sweaty feeling you get, the classic wrap the sleeves round the …

The Undergrad Guide To Graduating

Image
So it's final year, a bit of pressure on you to know what you want to do. Or you could be in the first or second year and just really want to get ahead, oh how I wish I was you. It's daunting to suddenly decide what you want to do, where are you going to go? Masters or graduate scheme or do you want to take some time out for you. Either way, it's hard to find the best places to get information from, so I thought I'd give you a little guide into the main things I've been using. 

First up get a notebook, sounds daft but call it your 'get your future sorted' list any careers events, post-graduate fairs and all the good stuff surrounding the future. This will help you get a timescale for things because everything starts to go soon and applications are due in usually around December. So once you get a timescale sorted you can see where your time is, nothing worse than going to apply for something to find out the applications closed 30 minutes ago (Yep that happen…

Losing Your Love For What You're Wearing

Image
For me what I'm wearing has a big impact on how I feel, I like to take the time out to decide what I'm going to wear and it's something that gets me motivated for the day. I switch between themes and colours and what's in at the moment and for me, I just love to change things up and re-design things in different ways. But I reached a point recently where everything was getting quite stressful and I didn't enjoy putting on clothes anymore. 

It's very weird for me to talk about this because I think lots of people have a similar feeling sometimes, but with everything that was going on I just didn't feel motivated to think about what I was going to wear and I lost the want to think about what I was wearing. I started just throwing on whatever and although there's nothing wrong with this, I just felt so unmotivated with what I was wearing. 

For me, I hate wearing the same things all the time it drives me mad. I wear jeans for so long before I get bored and nee…

Let's Chat For A Second

Image
So I've been a little quiet on here, it's been a busy couple of weeks and a lot has been happening behind the scenes here and it's been weird to sit down and write a blog post. I ignored everything for a little bit to get my head together and plan a few things: where I want the blog to go and also where I'm going to go after university. 

University and graduating are gonna get its own separate post as oh my I could write a book about that so that will be the next post to go up. I wanna do a crash course to being a good graduate before you graduate and so far I'm loving the post so expect to see that soon! It's final year and the pressure is on and my heads been in a bit of a funk as I've had to do a lot of thinking on a load of different things. 



Life has been a bit weird recently, it's been hard to get into a routine and I've felt a little all over the place. I need a routine to some extent and with deadlines, life, and changes hitting you it's h…

The New Coat October Splurge

Image
Yep, I got paid from work, I needed a new coat, fancied a new piercing and thought it's only right to document all of this. It feels odd sitting here and typing all this out. In reality, I've been all over the place really, I've not had some solid time to sit down and actually focus on my blog properly and it feels so odd and out of place for me, life gets in the way and this has gone to the back burner, unfortunately. But I have a cheeky 20 minutes and some new things to talk about so let's get going on this little splurge I had. 

First and most obvious is I have a new coat in my life, I fell in love with this a couple weeks ago and it's been love ever since. I'm gonna do another post soon and my lack of love for fashion recently I hit a bit of a slump and I just wasn't inspired by anything and it really sucked. But when I saw this I was in love with it, a cheeky £25 spent in Primark and this was coming home with me. I wanted a fluffy coat for a while but I…

A Bit Of A Guide To Getting Stuff Done

Image
I'm not here to sell you this amazing plan where all your procrastination issues are solved, sadly I'd need to put that into practice for myself first. What I can do however is talk a little bit about this, procrastination is such an odd thing. Everyone does it but sometimes it can feel more than that, you physically can't seem to get anything down no matter how hard you try. Some hours feel unproductive where others feel like nothing can stop you. It's a hard thing to tackle so I thought to help us all feel a little less guilty about it I'd talk about the things that tend to help me when i'm in the procrastination phase. 

Some weeks I struggle to get anything done, this isn't due to me being lazy or not wanting to do it but sometimes there can be so much going on I can't focus on one sole thing. With having constant alerts on my phone and laptop and notes everywhere it's not easy to just focus on one thing when there are about 15 other things you co…

Let's Get A Bit Of Netflix On

Image
Nope, this isn't a Netflix and chill situation, but Netflix is improving and adding more and more on every day. For me I've become sucked into the hype over it, I have it on my phone and my laptop and it's become my main go to whenever I want to watch something. I'm more of a tv show person rather than a film person, they don't have a great selection of films but they really are stepping up the tv shows.

If you're looking for something a little on the odd side Big Mouth is up there. It's a cartoon based show touching on issues such as puberty, porn, and slut shaming. It brings up these topics in a way that makes it funny, it breaks the ice and touches on a lot of today's humour. The episodes are short but it's something you can get easily addicted to. 



If you want something a bit more fictional, say you're a fan of Pretty Little Liars then Elite is one to watch. Based around a mysterious death you get to know the lives of each character, they all …
