Sixth Form Outfit Ideas // Minimalist

So I'm approaching sixth form soon, it's pretty daunting. But one thing that is keeping me going is the fact that I'm never going to have to wear uniform AGAIN. That also terrifies me. 

Here's an outfit combination, that is marginally expensive, but on the grand scheme of things, it's not that bad. One item I will be purchasing are those brogues, which might not be to everyone's taste, but I LOVE them. (Kind of inspired by London Fashion Week S/S 15 Collections)

If you want to see this on my polyvore, click here.

Coat - Mango £40
Trousers - Topshop £30
Shoes - Office £65
Turtle Neck - Uniqlo £6.44 WHAT
Headphones - Nastygal £25
Bag - H&M £25

Hopefully I'll continue this series throughout the year, to help inspire outfit combination ideas for the future. See you next week!

8 School Bag Essentials

Ah, what a generic post. Was lacking originality and just bit the bullet, a (what's in my school) bag. So  here we go, it's a bit of a short one.

1. Pencil case - Mine are always from Paperchase, they look pretty

2. Glasses - Maybe not an essential for everyone, but as I'm short sighted, I always need mine on me. Mine are by Tommy Hilfiger

3. Deoderant - Now my school doesn't allow spray cans, but I think it's an essential regardless. Mine are from 'Charlie'

4.  Water - I LOVE Sparkling Water personally, I don't know why. Don't really have a particular brand that I like.

5. Good quality headphones - I personally love the ones that completely block out the world, where I can listen to my loud music. I LOVE my Beats by Dre personally, but in school i sometimes sneak some apple headphones.

6. Lip Balms - I NEVER take makeup into school, I do wear makeup before hand though, but I don't get the time to even consider reapplying. I've never really understood the stigma of people reapplying makeup whilst in school, I just don't understand it. I have a mad collection of lip balms, my favourites are from The Body Shop and Boots own brand.

7. Hand Sanitizer - I can't stand germs in school. Can't stand them. If you take nothing else from this post, please take this one and invest in a good hand sanitizer. It's life changing. I love the smell and texture of the Primark sanitizer.

That's all.

Some Spring 'Roomspiration' | Tumblr ❁

So, as part of BLOGMAS, I found some 'wintry room decor ideas from tumblr' and posted them. Decided to do the same thing but for spring this time. I love the minimalist theme, and when I move out I will definitely design my house in this way!

Let's Chat // 1. School and Organisation

A little break from my usual beauty posts (i feel they're becoming a little repetitive and I want to spice things up a little) , I've decided to create a series on my blog for advice called 'Let's Chat'. Hope you enjoy the more lengthy posts!

This time of year has been HECTIC (this blogpost alone is scheduled). I rarely get a second to myself nowadays, and even when I do, I automatically feel bad for not revising/working. Some might say I'm only 16, therefore I shouldn't be stressing or worrying about what the future has to hold. 


I take 11 subjects, that's maths, statistics, english x2, spanish, chemistry, biology, physics, history, art and religious studies. It's a lot, and some do even more. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm incredibly grateful for my education, as I realise some aren't as fortunate as me. That's not really what I'm getting at. What we need as a group of individuals is a way to organise ourselves physically and mentally. Here are 3 ways to keep yourself organised and on top of your work.

1. 'Procrastination is the enemy of progression' - Just thought of that quote on the spot, feeling pretty proud :). But seriously, don't procrastinate, by definition it seems daunting. Try your absolute best to do your work when you get it, not the night before. 

2. USE A TIMETABLE/PLANNER - This is THE most helpful tip anyone can ever need to keep organised. If you have an event, pencil it in. If you have a deadline, pencil it in. If you want a day off every now and then, pencil it in. I can't stress it enough how useful it is to have a timetable, it's so handy.

3. Make sure your workspace is neat/colourful/peaceful - The last thing ANYONE needs is mess whilst they are working. Piles of papers, Masses of books, it's just daunting. If all you need is your laptop and some pen and paper, that's all you need on your desk. If all you need is a book and your phone, that's all you need on your desk. 

Minimalism is key to organisation.

Now I'm not saying that if you follow those three steps you'll be the next einstein. All I'm saying is slowly you'll feel more organised and in control of what's happening. That's all for today's 'Let's Chat' Post. Have an amazing week and hope you stay organised!
