10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE AUTUMN!

Autumn is almost here, or is it here already? 
I think it is too hot to be autumn now, dont you think?
Did you know that spring is my favourite out of all the seasons? To find out more about me, 
click here ---> [ABOUT]. 
I don't mind the autumn season at all, but the reason why it is not my favourite is because it is closer to winter haha. I am not a fan of cold weather, I prefer cool weather with less rain. 

Anyways, Here are the 10 reasons why you should love Autumn: 

- The Leaves on the trees are so beautiful.
- The ground is covered in colourful leaves. 
- Foggy and cool in the mornings. 
- Hot Chocolate season!
- Almost Christmas [Boxing day sales!] 
- The sun set early and the sky gets darker. 
- Cosy lie-in on the weekends, while it rains outside. 
- Halloweeeeeen!
- You get to wear comfy Jumpers. 
- Almost New Years! 

Why do you love the Autumn season? Share it with us in the comment section below, dont be shy!

ADDING COLOUR TO YOUR WARDROBE USING DYLON UK DYES

Hey Babes,

Thank you so much for the feedback from my last post on Jay Manuel Beauty! However the competition is still going, so I would definitely check the post out if I haven’t! Take a chance and apply, it ends on 1st of October.

Click this link to view the giveaway post – 10,000 VIEWS GIVEAWAY! 

Anyways, in today’s post I am going to be sharing 5 reasons why you should dye your old clothes and how you can add colour to your wardrobe using DYLON UK. Firstly, DylonUK is a company that celebrates a colourful world. That is, bringing colour to the wardrobes, homes and lives of people for over 60 years now. Dylon UK kindly sent me some of their dyeing products to try out and so far I love it. The products are well packaged and I believe the colours will definitely transform my clothes to something fabulous! I can't wait to use it on so many of my old clothes especially my white t shirts! I will be sharing a before and after post very soon, so make sure to keep an eye out for it! 


Here is a little quote from their website that describes what they represent as a dye company,

‘’Recycling is big news and people are choosing to change things rather than chuck them. As the Evening Standard newspaper recently commented “make-do-and-mend” is back in vogue and with DYLON you can make a change for the better.’’ 


Here are 5 reasons of why I think you should try dyeing your old clothes,
- Get a chance to get creative with your clothes by making it into your own!
- Saves you money from getting new clothes, when you can just dye your old clothes to look brand new again!
- You get to recycle your favourite clothes.
- The instructions are easy to follow! Not a long process at all.
- It gives your clothes great quality. 

Below are also some tutorials from a few YouTubers you could look through for help and guidance when dyeing your clothes for the first time with Dylon Dyes,


Dylon UK has a broad palette of colours that you can choose from. It is showcased on their website, so you can have a look by clicking on this link ---> DYLON COLOURS


Remember guys, Recycling and dyeing is the new vogue!
Make the best of it. Go get yourself a Dylon Dye to transform your oldies to newbies!

UNIVERSITY FRESHERS CHECKLIST || HALLS, LECTURES, ETC. #UNI-SERIES

Hey Babes!

This is the end of my Uni-series! Hope you guys learnt a thing or two from the other university related posts. I decided to save this one for last because it’s the most important one. I wish I had this straight forward, broken down checklist when I was going to Uni as a fresher. I am going to get straight into it now as it is a very long checklist, and I don’t want you guys to get bored. I will also leave links below for other websites to look at because they have a longer and more detailed list! 
Source: Tumblr.com
Halls:

Kitchen: Peeler, tea towels, sponge, dish washing soap, other washing up items, plates (x2), cups (x2), Mug, cutleries, sieve, cooking spoons, food containers,  scissors, bowls (x2), tin opener, chopping knife, grater, potato masher (if needed), freezer bags, tin foil, cling film, oven gloves, tray (to eat in your room), Store cupboard ingredients (e.g. Pasta, sugar, cooking oil, salt and pepper etc.).
I would advise to make sure you have your own things because some kitchens in halls tends to be really messy, and you wouldn’t want to touch most of the things, as well as use them to cook your food or clean your plates.

Bathroom: hand wash, shampoo (hair/body), shower basket, toiletries, bathroom cleaners/house-keeping (gloves, bleach, scrubbing brush, febreeze, duster, cif, washing liquid/powder, door wedge etc.), toilet roll, and diffuser.

Bedroom: Duvet (x2), Bed sheets (x2), Quilt covers (x2), Pillow (x2), Pillow-cases (x4), Blankets/fleece throw [soft and comfortable], diffuser, studying lamp, fairy lights, framed/printed pictures, and magazines.

Healthcare: It’s good to have a few off the counter medications (paracetamol, lemsip etc.) for flu, headaches etc. Just in case you catch the fresher’s flu!

Lecture/Seminars:

A Bag: A bag that can fits all your things is very essential! I wouldn’t go for a small bag personally. It just helps to have something with space in case you are handed loads of papers for example.

Notebook: You should probably get a notebook with demarcations, if you don’t fancy carrying too much stuff in your bag.

Stationary: pens, pencils, erasers, stapler, paper clips, highlighters, folders, post-it notes etc.

Phone/Tablet/Mini-IPad: I would take something you can use to browse in lectures just in case your lecturer wants you to look up something in class.

Diary/planner: I would highly recommend this one! Few lecturers tends to tell you all your assignments information on the first week, so I would definitely have this in hand to keep track of dates and so on. You could always record this information on your phone as well, it’s up to you. This is just a good thing to have for good organisation. 

Textbooks: You should check your Uni library on the website or student central to see if they have the textbooks you need available. If they do, don’t waste your money and get new ones because they sometimes have EBooks for these textbooks. If they don’t, then I would advise you to get used [slightly new] books on Amazon.com.

Food/snacks/drink: Okay I don’t know if someone would have mention this to you but you need to have something to eat or drink! Why do I say this? Sometimes you don’t get to have a long break between lectures and seminars to go and get things in your Uni shop, so I would advise you to definitely have something packed in your bag! You will thank me for this later, you’ll see.
P.s some lectures are so boring, it will tire you out. You will need this food/snack/water to help you regain your energy for the seminar.

Bonus: I know packing can be a lot of hassle especially when you are going to university for the first time! And I know how difficult it is to get all your things in one or two suitcases. Do not worry at all because I have got a special deal for you lot. DAVPACK is the solution to all your packing problems! Not only do you get a low cost moving kit designed to help students move into their accommodation, you also get a 10% discount code [STUDENT10]. How amazing it that?!

Hope this is helpful!

MOVING INTO HALLS || #UNI-SERIES ROOM DÉCOR

Hi beauts,
Ok, moving into halls… where should I begin?
Source: Tumblr.com

Moving into halls wasn’t as nerve-wracking for me because I attended boarding schools from year 9 till A levels, so it wasn’t a new thing to me. As for other people I met at Uni, it was their first time leaving home, and basically packing their whole life to somewhere new.

If I were in their shoes, I would probably be pooing myself too.
Source: Tumblr.com
Moving into halls is a lot of chore especially when you start packing and stressing about what to take with you. One thing that is exciting about it all is your bedroom. How you are going to decorate it and make it feel homely. I don’t know about you, but that was the most exciting bit of it all. I literally went on Tumblr to search different bedroom décor to see if I could get any inspiration on how I would decorate mine. As you all know, I love interior and just being creative in general; so all this decorating was up my alley. 
Source: Tumblr.com
If you are into interior like myself and you want to search for any form of inspirations then I would go on places like,

Tumblr.com
Pinterest
Instagram

These are the top 3 platforms I go to for stuff like this.
Sometimes YouTube is also a great platform to go to, because there are loads of university room tour videos. This will kind of give you an idea of what to buy for your room and so on.

BONUS: Top 3 you tubers/bloggers with the best room tours are,

Zoella
Niomi Smart
In the frow

Last but not the least, also look for university room tour blog posts! They are also very helpful as they would list the things you should take and should not take to halls. When I was moving into Uni, I thought I was moving into a big house. I brought so much stuff with me that I didn’t even need, and I didn’t even use half of it. So I would definitely read all these blog posts for more information on things to take to Uni.

Check out these university room tours blog posts:

I will be doing a university room tour blog post very soon, so you could always check mine out as well!  Click this link to check out a similar post on my blog-

Until next time!

NEW READS || SUMMER 2016

Hey Beauts!
Sorry for the lack of posts for the past week. I have been busy doing a lot of behind the scenes planning, and also just coming up with ideas for the blog. Its taking long but hopefully everything will be great in the end! I am very optimistic about it. 
 So, I have been reading alot lately and I just thought, why not share my new reads with you! I am currently reading 'Me Before You' and can I just say it is definitely one of the best books I have ever read in my life. it is A to the Mazing! The movie came out on [4th of July] I believe, which is great because I cant wait to see how it actually plays out on film. I have watched the trailer on YouTube and I feel like they have altered some parts in the story [I could be wrong!] but its all good. I still think it will be a great movie.
 List of New Reads: 
  1. Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives by Lola Shoneyin
  2. The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes
  3. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
  4. Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
What have you been reading lately? Let me know in the comments. 
Would love to add new novels to my list! 

Until next time! xo
P.S Happy New Month!
