Stationary Subscription | Papergang


Papergang Stationary Subscription Ohh Deer Kaleidoscope Peonies

 Papergang is a monthly stationary subscription box from Ohh Deer- a gorgeous and quirky stationary brand. I first found out about it when the lovely Sophie from SophiesNoteBook blogged about it. Her box was so pretty and the stationary was right up my street, so I decided to give it a go. Here's what I thought of the August box.

Liverpool & Life Decisions | Applying For A Masters

Applying For A Masters 

Applying For A Masters University Of Liverpool Kaleidoscope Peonies

When I first went to university in 2012 I didn't ever have plans to come back and do a masters. Even when I graduated in 2015, I still didn't have any plans to return to uni. When my degree was over I had only one solid plan: to travel. I worked all through the summer up until Christmas and then set off on my travels in January 2016. It was during those few months that I made the decision to apply for a masters.

This decision felt different to any other. Up until this point in my life all the major decisions were (in my mind) very clearly mapped out for me. But I had hit a cross roads where I couldn't just coast along with what everyone else was doing. Travelling gave me the confidence and also the thinking space to make the the right decision for me. So I decided I wanted to go back to university to do a masters. Which left a few things to consider.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Kaleidoscope peonies

I've never been that into lip products. I don't normally wear anything in the daytime except lip balm and if I'm going out I'll always wear a berry toned lipstick- my fave is Topshop Wicked. However, I've been wearing these little numbers every day since I got them, and absolutely loving them.

They are the Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks from Bourjois.  Here's why I love them.

20 Things That Make Me Happy | Me Time

'Me Time' Chat & Faves 

Me Time Chat Kaleidoscope Peonies

As I've gotten older I've definitely realised how much I value alone time. More than just value it, but actually need it to feel happy. If I feel like I haven't had enough time to myself I start to feel swamped and stressed. I need it to recharge. This makes one aspect of my personality introverted. When I feel like I need some space or 'me time', these are my favourite things to do, and they never fail to make me feel like myself again.
