What It’s Really Like – Not Making Close Friends at University

What It’s Really Like – Not Making …

In life, and particularly when you’re young, the focus seems to be on having a big group of friends and seeming “cool”. I’ve had people shocked to the core when I admitted I sat in lectures alone, claiming a lecture wasn’t worth going to if you weren’t there to socialise. But a lecture is always worth going to. After all, they exist as a teaching tool. University is primarily about getting a degree. And if you make friends, great! But if not, that doesn’t mean you’ve failed. No matter how hard society pushes on you that a social life is more important than anything else at that point.

Review – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

Review – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

But when my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil ran out, and I didn’t have the money to order a new one, I swallowed my pride and went in search of a good drugstore dupe. A quick online search led me to Maybelline for a similar pencil. And whilst there, I decided to try some other things that had a good reputation, before being drawn to the foundations. Having done most of my makeup shopping online, I was pretty impressed to see a display that talked through each foundation type and told me which one was for each skin type. After a little swatching, I settled on the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid.

Why I’m Taking the Beauty out of this Blog!

Why I’m Taking the Beauty out …

In recent weeks, I’ve lot my passion for beauty blogging. New products have piled up and not been used, despite me photographing them. I’ve struggled to keep up with trends and have found that most of my beauty posts get seriously low engagement. I have tried to move towards promoting small brands and seriously niching this blog, but I have barely had the drive to do it.

Review: Café Society Aberdeen

Review: Café Society Aberdeen

When I got back to Aberdeen, I started my search for independent coffee shops and Café Society, then called Quality Treats, was one of the first to pop up. I live right in the city centre, and this lovely café is only a five minute walk away. Shortly after my discovery, I was devastated to find the inside of Quality Treats ripped out and the branding gone. I was so sure I’d missed my chance! But after a few weeks out reopened as Café Society, and today I finally went in.
