Looking out of the window at my office, it’s pretty clear that Winter is speeding towards us. Mostly because I work in Manchester and so the streets below are filled with Christmas Market stalls ready to open this weekend (& the mulled wine stall just so happens to be right outside of our front door!). Either way, it’s bloody nippy and difficult to work when you’re worried various appendages are going to drop off without warning, so here are my Winter Work Warmers.
Now that I’m almost a proper grown-up, I actually get real pleasure from looking at the homeware aisles of shops. I’m embarrassed to admit it, but it’s true and so I’ve decided to just embrace it.
So today’s post is just a collection of cute accessories that I think would really turn your living room (or whatever term you use) into a cosy autumnal haven in which to hide from the rain.
This might just be me, but when I have a huge amount of things to do, I tend to just bury my head in the sand a la the ostrich and hope that the To Do List Fairy comes along and does it all for me.
So, then, it is my task to catch up on all of the things and as something of a bit of a last-minute-Minnie, I feel that I’ve managed to try and test a whole host of ways to get my focus on. As a way of procrastinating from the things in my life that need doing, I figured I would share my tips with you. You’re welcome.
Today’s #BEDN prompt is “style”. I’m currently sat here in my PJs and a giant varsity hoody from a University I didn’t even go to – so safe to say that I am not the right person to talk style in regards to fashion! That said, I decided I’d do a little home office tour, as it’s the only room in the house that is entirely mine, (& the kitten’s too of course!) and I think it shows off my “style” the best.
Last time I went to an event, I did a full unbagging video of the goodie bag, however this time I was far too bloody excited to wait!
I’m on the train on the way home for the latest Liverpool blogger event and in my happy bubble of post-event euphoria, I figured I’d give you a little insight to blogger events and some tips on what to expect. This one was by Jenny who organised the first one I went to and has quickly become one of my favourite people in the blogging world!
An advanced copy of this book was kindly sent to me for review by the publishers.
This book follows super popular, football star (of course) Ryden as he navigates life with a small baby after the death of his girlfriend to cancer. So, it’s pretty heavy, though ultimately enjoyable to read.
Trigger warning, sexual assault
Consent is something that is very important to me, having launched the ‘EHSU <3 Consent' campaign at my Union when I was Vice President, and so when I heard of the #ConsentIs campaign, I knew I wanted to be involved - the fact that the lady I spoke to was a volunteer at the Peterborough centre (my home town!) felt like fate.
Last week, for Treat Yo’Self Day, I ended up having a hallowe’en makeover at Benefit – Check it out!
You may remember my Big Money Challenge post from a few weeks ago (& if not you should check it out immediately!) where I embarked on a number of Internet ideas to try and make some pennies. As an update, Prolific Academic is incredibly successful and I’ve already racked up over £20 with it being super interesting and enjoyable to do – Yay!
