So, I am currently lying in bed, with a headache and still completely exhausted. BUT, it’s just been so long since I’ve been able to write anything and I’ve really missed you all so much, so I thought I’d do a quick blog to let you all know what’s been happening! 🌟
I handed in both of my last assignments for my third year of university. This is my placement year, in which I bit off far more than I could chew and really struggled to complete everything! On top of my degree work alongside my placement, I undertook a Level Four Diploma, Microsoft Office Exams, two online courses and my personal hobbies – blogging, instagram and make-up! I do not regret a single part of this year, my placement taught me a lot about the business world, and mainly – what I didn’t want my life to turn into!
In June, I was working full-time at my summer internship. Plus, I had my placement portfolio due and my level-4 diploma coursework due. This combined to over 100 hours work, outside of my normal job, in a month
! 😴 On top of this, I re-sprained my ankle quite badly, and have been in and out of the doctors because I keep getting dizzy spells. All in all – it’s quite a hectic summer.
But it’s only four weeks,
Until I’m completely free to focus on the things that really make me happy, on experimenting with my make-up looks, my beauty boxes, learning the piano and speaking to you all about my experiences 💖 As lovely as my internship is, and as much as I do love the company, I genuinely cannot wait to get back to this.
Plus, as much as I’ve not been able to post, please know I’ve actually been saving up SO many blog ideas for you all once I’m back! These include:
- Potentially the absolute best weekend of my life
- Tips for maintaining productivity when all you want is to give up and sleep
- My first ever MAC purchase and review
- My last ever Birchbox
- My last ever Roccabox
- What I’ve learnt about all new beauty boxes – and which look the best!
- The start of a new diet
- The best cold-recipes for Summer weather
- The stationary edit
- Rose-Gold Make-up
Plus, my absolute favourite, and one I am so, so excited to write – my Mystery Blogger Nomination from Smarts and Sparkles. I actually received this notification when I was up late working on my portfolio, and it actually made me cry – it was that amazing to see! I’ve just looked at it all properly, and I am so, so excited to get to work on this for you all 💖.
So, please, keep bearing with me – I’ll be back as soon as I can and in four weeks max! Although, without the university work I do hope it’ll be before 😉 I hope you’re all having an amazing summer, and I’ll keep trying to catch up with all the amazing and inspirational blogs you’re posting!
