April Reflection

april reflection

Hey… where did April go?! So, we’re back at it again! How did I do with my April goals?!

What I Achieved

Personal

  • I tried out a new foundation! The L’oreal Infallible 24hr one to be exact and I was super impressed. I wouldn’t say it was the best but I would say it is as good as my Double Wear which gets a seal of approval from me considering the price difference! If you have pale skin, the shades are great. I’m using the 2nd/3rd lightest shade and it is still too light for me.
  • I booked a trip for June. It is not Lisbon or Dubrovnik which I was hoping for but I am really excited to say I’m going back to Barcelona for 6 days!
  • I have also been working really hard for my Volunteering Events Fundraising position and I’m loving it. I have been given a lot of responsibilites which is super exciting.

Blog

  • Guys… I hit 600 followers! I am so so grateful for all your support – thank you so much for getting me to this point. 
  • I have been loving speaking to more of you on Twitter! I have been so much more interactive over there and it’s great. My twitter is linked at the bottom of the page so I would love it if you joined me over there.

Academic

  • I have been spending hours and hours and hours in the library revising so hopefully this will pay off in May for my exams. Myself and a friend have been booking at least 12 hours a week so fingers crossed.

Better Luck Next Time

  • WHO CAN BE BOTHERED TO MOISTURISE AFTER EVERY SHOWER
  • I have been proof reading my blog posts more but it is definitely something I need to work harder on as I am still making silly grammar errors *slap on the wrist* that would probably make my lecturers cry.
  • I was reasonably proud of my God & Morality essay but I think it could have been better so I’m very worried about getting the result. Who knows, eh, could be a masterpiece?!

 

Well, not too bad overall! How did your April goals go?

    Big congrats on the 600 mark! And also I’ve heard of a few people heading off to Barcelona recently and they’ve absolutely loved it (I’m not jealous, not at all…!!) Are you doing a package holiday, all inclusive, etc? x

    • April 29, 2017 / 4:21 pm

      Thank you so so much! I’m over the moon about it 🙂 Just flights and hotel, we loved getting food in all the different cafes and markets etc last year so we wanted to do the same again! xxx

      • April 29, 2017 / 4:29 pm

        I’d probably want to do something similar to be honest, you’d be able to venture out and try more things if you don’t feel as though you’ve wasted money on food in one place. Did you use a tour operator like Thomson or book things separately? (Can you tell I’ve never been on a proper holiday and the thought of organising it, let alone sorting out health supplies for a trip, confuses the heck out of me!) x

          Definitely! I always use Expedia for city break type of trips because you can search for the best deals and it is so easy to use! You get nectar card points which is great for some too. I’m not surprised, that would confuse me too haha! I am very very picky with my hotels – I want to get the absolute best possible for the cheapest price – so it often takes me several hours for a few months before I find something perfect!! Adam hates me for it hahaha xx

    Congratulations! 🙂 Told you before…but I’ll say it again! You have a lovely blog and some really interesting posts too…I’m still getting to grips with Twitter! 🙂 xxx

    • May 1, 2017 / 3:32 pm

      Thank you so much for supporting me 🙂 Yeah Twitter is something I am always trying to get my head around so don’t worry!! Haha xxx

    This was really interesting to read! Have fun in Barcelona-I love the city, I have been twice. And good luck for your exams!! Mine aren’t till June, but still pretty scary

    • April 30, 2017 / 1:17 pm

      Thank you 🙂 such an amazing place isn’t it? Anywhere you recommend going?? Thank you! Good luck to you too xx

      • April 30, 2017 / 9:58 pm

        I would definitely recommend Park Guell, though apparently you have to pay to get in now unfortunately. La Rambla is also pretty incredible (just to see what is going on not just for buying things) and La Sagrada Familia is pretty cool, although it can be super busy!!

    Yayyy congratulations on 600 followers! That’s amazing! A trip to Barcelona sounds like the best way to celebrate 😉 Good luck for your exams – you’ll do great! xxx

    • April 30, 2017 / 1:16 pm

      Thank you!!! I’m so excited to go ☺️, definitely the best way to celebrate for sure! Thank you lovely, fingers crossed! Xxx

    Congrats on a new record and reaching a milestone number of subscribers!

    Good luck for your upcoming exams! You’ve been working hard so I have no doubts that you’ll ace your exams!

    Moisturizing after EVERY shower can give me a miss, too!

      Thank you so much! Ahhh I know, I’m so excited!! xxx

  11. May 2, 2017 / 10:46 am

    Nice sharing 🙂 This is one of my favorite posts that you’ve done.

  12. May 2, 2017 / 7:40 pm

    congrats on 600 followers! just discovered your blog and i love it. xx

  13. May 3, 2017 / 7:57 pm

    Congrats for reaching 600! I will go on my twitter either tonight or tomorrow and follow you. I hate when I make spelling mistakes! Every time I read one of my blog posts, I’m like argh..how could you have posted such a grammatically bad article! And moisturising after the shower is annoying. I try to do it every morning – I find that using a lighter lotion is easier than with a thick cream. Try mixing sugar and olive oil every once in awhile in the shower. It makes your skin so smooth and lasts a few days. xx

    • May 4, 2017 / 12:04 pm

      Thank you so much lovely! I will give you a follow back too 🙂 I know, I think it’s because I get in the flow of writing and then I just don’t check it over – I often do it with comments too and I feel so stupid! What an amazing tip! I will try that next time, thank you so much 🙂 xxx

      • May 4, 2017 / 5:41 pm

        Ok I added you, but I need to work on my twitter because right now, it’s a bunch of blog links! Bad twittering I know. I guess it’s a natural thing though with spelling mistakes. It just shows you are truly focused on the actual topic! 🙂 That’s what I tell myself. xxx

        • May 6, 2017 / 10:41 am

          I need to do the same, don’t worry! I always neglect it too because I don’t have the app on my phone! xx

          • May 6, 2017 / 2:12 pm

            I don’t have the app on my phone either!xx

  14. May 3, 2017 / 8:56 pm

    Moisturizing after showers is so hard! I used to try and keep my lotion by the shower so I could use it right after I got out, but even that couldn’t keep me on track!

    • May 4, 2017 / 12:03 pm

      I’ve managed to do it every day this week but it has been a struggle, haha! I tried that too… didn’t work!! xx

  15. May 15, 2017 / 9:16 pm

    Good luck with your exams by the way! I got my third GCSE tomorrow and I want to die ahh!!! X

    • May 15, 2017 / 10:31 pm

      Oh gosh 🙁 Good luck! They’re not the be all and end all, don’t fret! Mine were 4-5 years ago now and I remember being so worried, it all works out ok in the end!! xxx

      • May 16, 2017 / 4:24 pm

        Thank you! I really needed that, you are so lovely:) xxx
