Hello! If you didn't already know, I am off to University very very soon and I am very excited (also very proud of myself for going through with it) and I have written up a few things that I am going to be taking with me to survive my first term there.. And if you've found out that you're going to University in the next few months (a HUGE well done by the way!) then this might help you along the way (if you're anything like me then you have to be prepared!) Boohoo have also designed their very own Student Hub where all-things-freshers are discussed which you can check out here! This post is kindly in collaboration with Boohoo but as always all opinions are my own, thank you!

1. Starting a conversation with everyone you can will make such a difference to that persons day! You'll probably find that person wants to talk to you, just as much as you want to talk to them. Meet and talk to as many people as you can because everyone will be in the same boat and everyone wants to be making friends. It's a strange environment for people who have moved away to study and they don't know anyone, so having a conversation with them can put them at so much ease.

2. Say yes to everything - what I mean by this is there's going to be lots of different clubs and societies and these are the perfect ways to get to know new people and learn new skills. University is a great place to get involved with things that normally you wouldn't get involved with - grab them with both hands. I've done a little research of different things and by the looks of it, there's a club for absolutely everything.

3. I plan to start all my work when it's set and I am quite adamant to stick to this and put my work first. I don't want to be that person that is constantly unorganised and rushing to get work completed and I guarantee you will enjoy it loads more if you're organised! Also, being organised is key for University such as things like packing your bag the night before, so you know you've got the right things for the things you're going to be doing that specific day and then even if you hit that snooze button a few more times than you really should have then at least that's one less thing you've got to do!

4. This brings me on to my next point, designate a day to sort your stuff out! This includes books, folders and notebooks because from time to time, we all just throw things in anywhere and eventually if we keep doing that then we're not gonna know where anything is when we need it and the thought of that stresses me out so much.

5. Budgeting, yay! Yes we all get money for 'free' and that's fab but we've gotta live off it, especially if you've moved away. My biggest tip is to divide your money up so you have an equal amount each month to live off because it's gonna be the worst thing ever when you have nothing to eat and you can't go out because you've blew all your money.

Hello! Following on from my Relationship post back in 2017 (which I had so much support on so thank you so much for that!) where I spoke about getting cheated on and basically everything that went wrong in my last relationship, I wanted to do this and part of my brain knew that I wanted to write this at the time, ya'know because I knew that I'd be fine now but at the time? No. Of course not, it's almost like I got sucked into this world of 'never escaping this horrible feeling of loneliness and betrayal' but looking at myself now and looking back on what happened, I am so (insert f word) happy.

My first tip and the first thing that I did was to block them on everything. Block them out, literally. I don't know if i'm the only person that feels like this but when you miss someone and you're constantly being updated on what they're doing it makes you feel even worse - it's strange when I put it like that but it's true. I hate knowing that the person that has done me so wrong is having a good time, i'll be honest. Plus, why would you want them as your Facebook friend? Because they're not your friend. Reality. It's important to be hard on yourself because like I said in my last post, you have to look into the future because for example, if someone eliminates your trust (cheating etc) then how are you going to enjoy being with them when trust is such a big thing in a relationship?

When I had my experience, I remember ringing up my best friend straight away and telling him what happened and I straight away caught a train the next morning to go visit him and that was fab at the time but I think if I had gave myself time then it would of been a lot quicker to process because I had ignored the situation instead of thinking about it (which isn't the best for everyone but I'm just speaking regarding what I learned in my experience) so my next tip is give yourself time. It's okay to cry, it's okay to be sad. Someone has come into your life and left. It's fine to be sad, its normal to be sad.
I am always the type of the person in these certain situations where I think far ahead and I think as realistic as I can. I always told myself how this isn't going to be affect me forever. Because it's not. Everything seems like such a HUGE deal when it's happening but in six months time, will you still be crying over it? I guarantee you won't. Everybody goes through break ups, some worse than others but it's how you react that can make such a huge difference to how you feel and how you look on the outside. You've met this person for a reason and as much as it's shitty at the time, you've learned so much about yourself through this whole process that you can take away with you. Everything that happens in your life is a lesson.

There is nothing wrong with talking to people. If you find yourself wanting company then get your friends round because there is nobody better at talking about these things to than the closest people in your life because they understand you and want the best for you.

And remember just like everything in life, everything gets better and everything happens for a reason. If you're a friend of someone going through a similar thing then just be there for them, they will appreciate it so much x

MY ULTIMATE TIPS ON 'GETTING OVER A BREAK UP'

Hello!

LO'real Men Expert have truly won the award for the best men's skincare in my eyes. Their entire range features a number of different products from deodorant to shaving essentials in heart of making people across the world look their best.

I'm not gonna lie but I had zero idea that this particular product even existed until I found it kindly gifted to me. It is designed to soften your stubble whilst also softening and giving moisture to your skin, making it easier and more comfortable for you to shave. One of its main technologies is the clever skin hydrater which works to replenish the loss of moisture on your skin. It's very natural for the moisture in your skin to reduce when it's exposed to a lot of sunlight, dirt and grime. I am a huge campaigner for products which contain Vitamin E in as it kinda gives my skin the kick it needs in time of need.
To use, I massage a small amount onto my face after it has been freshly washed. You can either do this right before shaving or the night before to prep your skin for the morning. This goes without saying but avoid your eyes (come on, we've all done it before) but overall this product has amazed me so much and has quickly became one of my favourite skincare products!
