University, 4 things they don’t tell you in the brochure.

I’ve been at university a few years now. In fact I had to drop out of my first course due to the lack of support, that isn’t something we’re going to get into; not today anyway. I have to admit, when you come to an open day the university has a way of making everything flow; they look perfect and you just can’t wait to start. However I’ve a few years under my belt and sometimes that just isn’t the case. I mean if I knew everything I know now when I started things would have turned differently. So I wanted to pass a little knowledge and wisdom onto the freshers and hopefully you’ll learn something new along the way. 1, Freshers flu, it doesn’t stop. If you haven’t heard of freshers flu, buckle up! It sucks, if you’re a fresher you need to pay close attention. Current students will…

The Photo Booth you need this Christmas!

So I love having a play around at Christmas, who doesn’t. Endless selfies, the occasional pea flying across the table and monopoly that may end ugly. Everyone loves having a laugh at Christmas and it’s the best time of year for it. Last year we decided to give Cards Against Humanity a try and loved it, this year we wanted something a little more hands on, something that we could all get involved with! I had a look around and after I got chatting with Paladone they decided to send me out this wicked photo booth for a try and to see if it would be worthy to star in our Christmas day antics. I had no idea what to expect so when it arrived I was over the moon and couldn’t wait to dive on in! On a side note, if you’re stuck on what to get a geeky…

Snacking, the low calorie snack helping me lose weight with Somebody!

Losing weight can be difficult, I know first hand. One mars bar and I’m putting on enough weight to sink a ship. I also find it really difficult to find anything that taste good with a low calorie count. I use MyFitnessPal to help me lose weight which is all about counting calories, so finding low cal snacks is top on my list! Counting calories is one of the reasons why I love Muller Light yogurts, however I can’t carry them around with a trusty spoon wherever I wonder. Imagine the damage if one of them split in my university bag, carnage! Instead I had a look for some other helpful treats, asked about and finally Superdrug were kind enough to send me these little beauties to try out, who wouldn’t want to be sent yummy treats to test! So let me kick it off with the popcorn, who doesn’t…

3 ways bloggers forget to use when generating new blog posts!

I get to a point sometimes where I end up writing so many blog posts and have loads of ideas, it’s great! I then get to a point where I’m sat on the sofa, at my desk or at university in a boring lecture and I can’t think of anything to write! It sucks, writers block is terrible. I sat down and had a good long think, I needed ways in which I could generate blog post ideas without having to spend too much effort. I mean no one likes to sit around for hours and go through various tasks in order to have an idea for a couple of blog posts. After a couple of days of thinking about all the possible ways I thought of three! Sure it could be more but you get what you’re given in life and you roll with it right? So without keeping…
