20 THINGS I'VE LEARNT ABOUT MYSELF IN 20 YEARS

Since I recently turned 20, I feel like a know a fair amount about the sort of person I am now... though I definitely don't have my life figured out by any means! I also find posts that allow you to find more about the blogger interesting so thought I'd share 20 things about me here.
I love exploring and travelling - Whether it's a completely different country or even just a new place within somewhere I'm already familiar with, I want to visit as many different places as I can!Learning has always been something I've enjoyed - I actually really liked school but besides that, I just like to learn and expand my knowledge as much as possible.I'm generally a pretty calm and chilled person - Most of the time I'm a very laid back person and don't get easily stressed or angry.I'm a hard worker but also equally good at procrastinating - I always work hard at whatever I do but I would probably get it done much quicker if I didn't procrastinate as much!I e…

4 QUICK AND EASY HAIRSTYLES

There are so many different types of things you can try out on your hair, regardless of the length but today I've decided to go back to basics!

I love the beach waves look, it's so effortless and looks great on both long and short hair. I have naturally wavy hair but in order to tame it I will let it dry naturally almost completely and then I will use a little water and scrunch up the ends, almost to make them bounce. Not too much so that your hair is dripping again and I only go about half way up as I prefer the upper section of my hair to remain straight. Sometimes I'll actually use my straighteners on the top to give a more polished look as well If you have naturally straight hair and find that waves or curves drop out before the day is over then I would definitely recommend using salt spray. I love the Schwarzkopf got2b Beach Matt Salt Spray which is only £3 on Amazon!

One of the best quick hairstyles is of course a quick up do. Now I know that all of us have our own w…

AUTUMN JUMPER HAUL #2

Since I didn't include all of my jumpers in my last Autumn haul, I thought I would do it today as it has definitely got chillier recently! I love this time of the year when it's starting to feel Christmassy and you can wear all the cosy jumpers! Like before I will similar jumpers to the ones I have featured, as these exact ones probably aren't available now!
This Black and White striped jumper goes perfectly with jeans for a simple and sophisticated look. It's definitely a slightly tighter fit so if you like more over sized jumpers I'd recommend you go up a size or two! This was from H&M a while ago now, for about £15 but I'm sure you can find similar from a few places as stripes are so in right now! I like both of these options on Dorothy Perkins and Asos.

I love wearing thinner jumpers at Autumn when the temperature is dropping, they're so easy to chuck on and you can layer up as well if needed. This dusky pink jumper was a great bargain from good old…

BABY NAME TAG

Now I am definitely not planning to have any kids until many many years down the line, however I have seen 'The Baby Tag' grow in popularity and thought I'd give it a go today! I'm not sure where this started and I do not take credit for these questions but good on you! I'm really picky and indecisive with names (I would literally spend hours just choosing a name for a Nintendog back in the day) so naming an actual physical human is something I find very difficult, however I gave it my best shot!

1) Favourite name from UK top 100 (2017) Amelia & Archie - I don't particularly like to choose names beginning with the same letter but I really like these names and think they would suit someone throughout their life, there are always those names that you associate purely with young kids or elderly people but I think these are pretty versatile.

2) Least favourite from UK top 100 (2017)
Heidi & Jayden - I don't like to pick out names I don't like because …

OCTOBER MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Happy November everyone! I sort of feel like I spend this entire month counting down the days until December as I'm a lover of Christmas but I'm looking forward to the weather getting crisper. October seems to have flown by but here are some of my favourites from the month!

Food - Not the healthiest option but I love to snack on some Sensations Poppadoms whilst watching some Netflix. I had eaten the Lime and Coriander Chutney ones multiple times, however recently I had the Mango and Red Chilli flavour and I have to say I am a big fan of both! The poppadoms are a nice change from your conventional bag of crisps and I love both flavour combinations. I usually share them with my boyfriend and we always end up racing through them!

Music - After taking time off to write music I was so glad to see that Sam Smith had released new music. Technically 'Too Good at Goodbyes' was actually released in September but I've been loving it throughout October, as well as 'Pray'…
