I Won The ENTIRE L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Make Up Range!

During December, Boots UK ran a 12 days of Christmas campaign on their Instagram page. As part of this, one of the prizes was the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect makeup collection.

My Experience of Jury Service (UK)

This week, I completed my second and final week of jury service. For those who aren’t aware, jury service here in the UK requires you to go to court and form part of a 12 person jury to hear and try cases.

Many of you will soon be returning back to university after a (hopefully) very relaxing Christmas break. The dread will soon kick in, the panic about graduate life will start and you will realise it’s all coming to an end sooner than you would like it to.  The period from January to the end of my degree went quicker than any other semester, and looking back, I could have done and seen and experienced so much more.

Shyness Is My New Superpower

It’s something that has been said to me a lot recently and got me thinking. The phrase “you’re shy aren’t you?” I’ve been pretty shy for most of my life, which can make navigating the adult work pretty tricky.
