If you've ever been a student, then you know how hard it is to achieve a balance between school and your personal life, especially as you get older. It's something that all students struggle with some time during their education, and it's something that we all had to figure out. Some students really enjoy learning and going to school, but for many of us, it's a chore to do homework and complete the necessary study every week. There are . . .
Have you ever thought about where your clothing originates from? Ever considered buying pre-loved items? Recently, as more as more people and more people raise the question of sustainable and ethical fashion, thrifting clothing has become a popular alternative to investing in good quality, sustainable but expensive clothing. So you may be wondering, what are the benefits to thrifting your clothes? Why thrift? In the age of fast . . .
Since I was introduced to the concept of thrifting two weeks ago, I've fallen in love with it. For a thrifting newbie, this haul was very exciting for me and I managed to find a few gems. Despite it being summer and scorching hot here in Australia, I seem to be focusing my thrifting on outerwear, strangely, but perhaps I'll end up thrifting summerwear in the winter, so it'll all even out. I found this lovely blue jacket at Vinnies for only . . .
It's officially the school season again! Young hopefuls all over the world pack their bags and head off to school to gain knowledge that will (hopefully) allow them to pay off the debt that they slowly accumulate every day... (but that's a post for another day) This post is all about school organisation, specifically how to get organised for school with diaries and planners. Most students look for three things in . . .
Why do we call them New Year's Resolutions? Is it just because we set them at the beginning of a new year? Or perhaps because that's the only way we'll be motivated to set them? I'm trying to be more honest with myself and I know that I most likely won't complete those that I call New Year's Resolutions so this year, I'm calling them 'Goals that I won't berate myself for not completing this year'. Focusing the year on self. We get so . . .
Time. It flies by fast, doesn't it? It seems like it was only yesterday that I was still in high school, a fresh-faced student, eager and ready to learn. That was six years ago. Now, I'm a high school graduate, having completed another stage of my life and ready to step into the next one. This year was not easy for me. It was the year of my HSC, my final high school exams, the ones that would dictate my entrance into university. To say . . .
I tried making chocolate balls today. Now, I wouldn't go as far as saying that it was a success, but it definitely wasn't a failure, so that's something at least. I'm famous among my friends for being unable to bake, so despite the fact that this recipe did not require baking, I'm still considering it quite an accomplishment. You can find the recipe I used here. As you can see, I decided to forgo the coconut because frankly, I'm not the . . .
It's Christmas Eve, officially one day away from the long-awaited celebration of Christmas. We finally put up lights outside so they're currently twinkling away merrily for Christmas. Christmas in my household is usually more of a low-key affair, and while I want to celebrate it extravagantly, I'm a bit lazy to put up all the decorations and I can't really imagine myself cooking an entire Christmas dinner so my dream Christmas will have to . . .
As it's the holiday season, it's the perfect time to curl up with a good book and a blanket on the couch. For me personally, I enjoy reading books that warm the heart and give me a good laugh, especially during this time. For those who don't know, I'm an avid reader. I could go as far as classifying myself as a bibliophile, which refers to someone who collects or has a great love of books. This means that I read a lot of books during the year, . . .
Is it just me or are anyone else's friends all getting into relationships? Inevitably, there will come a time when you realise that all of your friends are getting into relationships while you're not. It becomes a little more obvious during Christmas, perhaps it's because the holiday season inspires people to be a little more romantic. Although, it does make sad, little me look more depressing. While I'm not really an adult yet, I do know . . .
