The October Post

A few days late, but who's counting? For once, I'm really stuck while writing this post. Normally I give a quick overview of the previous month, and talk about my goals for the month to come, and it's all fine and dandy. But in September I went through a breakup and started my final year of uni within five days, signed up for a bunch of uni events I never normally would, and had a mighty cold for a good week+ of it. I've just been in a strange mood between pushing myself to make this year great, and wallowing in self pity because a massive chunk of my life is now gone. But anyway, I do have plans for this month, so here's what I've got on...

Here are my tips to stop your rented room feeling like an non-permanent place, and more like home...

Everyday Makeup Loves

Here's a simple post for you, the makeup I'm currently wearing most days! In short, I've been enjoying a simple but bronzy base, a sheer wash of pearly colour over the eyes, and a pinky nude lip. It's the kind of look that suits most occasions, and can be amped up with a stronger lip or winged liner if you want to take it from day to night...

The September Post

August included moving back to Dundee and settling into my new flat, working my uni's open day and getting to tell a whole bunch of worried applicants and parents about my amazing course, and soaking up lots of family time before I and everyone else get back into the swing of non-holiday life. And as cliche as it sounds, I can't believe it's September already! I'm actually looking forward to having a proper schedule again, but wow did summer go by quickly. Here's what I've got coming up this month...
