Birchbox 3 Months On

Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

Goals For Second Year Of University

Tomorrow I start my second year of University. There's a part of me that is excited and nervous but I've decided to change my game plan around a bit. I want to be more organised and focused this year throughout. I found myself hitting a point after Christmas where I really lost my motivation but this time round it's gonna change.

So let's kick off with the first goal, I want to actually write down notes this time. I spent first year typing up word for word the lecturer said. But honestly this just didn't work for me, I am a sucker for writing down little notes rather than typing them up so it's time to get back to pen and paper. It's a lot easier to summarise when writing down rather than when your typing, you fall into this mindset of needing to save every single word they say.

I am going to cook food from scratch at least 4 nights a week. Now this sounds dumb but I really just don't cook a lot of meals from scratch. I find myself getting tired and worn out so I resort to the simple and easy ready meal. Which in turn makes me feel lousy anyway so what's the point. I've set out a meal plan for a week in the hopes that I can keep it up all throughout second year. I'm not going too strict on myself because come on that would last a week at best.

I want to get as much exam practice as possible. I dread doing mcq exams and I think this fear got the better of me. I didn't want to do the exams because I knew I would get caught out which isn't the best mindset to go into. I've decided to get more information on the exams and practice practice practice until I feel confident to sit the exam.

Being more sociable, in first year I didn't really branch out too much. I've made a great group of friends but I didn't really feel like I'd got far in terms of getting to grips with social life at University. I'm taking part in more activities closer to my course and I really couldn't be more excited.

I want to go into second year optimistic, I plan to do my best and take on board any opportunities that come my way. Let me know below if you are starting University and what your goals are for the year.    I have a new Blog post up every Wednesday and Sunday and a new Bloglovin post every Friday.
