PGCE Diaries: Week 1


I thought, as a little series, and so I'll still be posting some sort of material here on the blog while I'm studying, that I could do a weekly update on how my PGCE is going. As it's only been my first four days on placement, I've not got too much to say this week but come along for the ride anyway! :)

Birthday Thoughts and Resolutions


As I start to write this post, it's 9:59pm. Exactly 23 years ago, I'd just been born. And 23 years later, here I am. How amazing is that? Against all the odds, I made it through childhood, my teenage years and into real adulthood. I know most people do, but today I'm proud of myself. Really though. I've come a hell of a long way.

A Life Update


I'm not sure if you've noticed or not but for the last couple of months I've not been posting entirely consistently. I mean, I've not been doing bad, but a lot of the time, if I've not had chance to write or photograph, I've just missed a day when I would post. I'm not unhappy about this and since taking blogging slower I've actually been liking it more, but I think my posting is set to get even more sporadic. Here's why.

Achievements | August


For one of the only times since I started writing this series, I'm scratching my head and struggling to think of what I've done over the last month that I consider a good thing! As I wrote in my monthly summary, I've been really relaxing this month and having a bit of a slow season. So I'm sorry if there's only a couple of things on the list!

Book Review | Harry Potter and The Cursed Child


This is the only book I managed to read in August (oops to my reading list...I'll get back on to it). But I think it was definitely a case of quality over quantity; I rather enjoyed this play-script book so I thought I'd review it here on the blog! IT'S OK, NO SPOILERS! At least, not plot spoilers. I will include names of characters, just because it's impossible to really talk about the script without them!

Review | La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Unifiant*



It's the worst kept secret on this blog that I am a big fan of La Roche Posay (LRP)'s Effaclar Duo [+]. I have in the past suffered with adult acne and now I have still have scars, a few blemishes and a lot of redness. I also have a bit of uneven texture around my nose (the kind of skin that makes you just want to grab a scrub and exfoliate til you have a new face). Basically, I am the kind of person for whom Effaclar Duo [+] was invented. And so when I heard about the latest incarnation of what's probably my favourite skincare product EVER, I was intrigued at the very least.

Love, Lipstick and Life #20


I've had another month where I've not blogged that consistently (sorry!) so this post seems to have rushed up on me. It's one I like making the time for though because it's always interesting to look back and see what I was up to a few months back or even this time last year. Anyway, this is how August has looked for me!
