Lifestyle | My Top 10 Travel Essentials

As some of you may know, I’m currently an undergraduate student who lives in London, but studies in Birmingham (a whole 141 miles away). Which means, it’s fair to say that I’ve had my fair share of traveling to and from the two cities, via car, train, coach and even tube.

On Saturday, I moved back into halls after a three week easter break which inspired this blog post. I’ve decided to come up with a list of items that I feel are essential for travelling (inland). Here are my top 10 travel essentials.

I’ve tried dozens of different products by different make-up brands, but I have four that I LOVE and regularly alternate between.

Fashion | My Polyvore

So today I decided to set myself up a bloglovin account (which you can all follow ;)), and I came across a site called ‘POLYVORE’ that most users I follow use.

The site is perfect for creating ‘wish lists’ and using images without violating anything copyright infringement laws – perfect for bloggers.

Lifestyle | Tips to get Motivated

As a student, I can sometimes struggle to get motivated – whether that’s to complete my assignments, or get out of bed on my day off. However, I feel that it’s important to have goals and in order to reach our goals we need to be motivated.

So for today’s blog post I’ve listed below the ways I get motivated and the things that I do during the day to keep myself motivated and working towards my goals.

1. Start the day with a good (healthy) breakfast

I think it’s important to start the day right and with a healthy breakfast. However, I am the first to admit that I sometimes skip eating breakfast altogether. I’ve been told that it’s imperative to eat a nutritional breakfast as it acts as fuel for the brain and provides improved concentration and performance – two things needed to be motivated. When I do have a healthy breakfast (which is 70% of the time), I will usually have at least once piece of fruit with a bowl of cereal/muesli and a coffee.
