Canadian Living in the U.K.

about arcticsabrina…

My blog focuses on the three pillars of blogging: beauty, fashion, and lifestyle For beauty, I write about hyped up products and decide whether or not its worth taking the $$ plunge. For fashion, I write more organically about how to develop a sense of personal style, different up and coming trends, and issues in the fashion industry. For lifestyle, I write about more open ended things like travel, baking, music, and my personal life.

about me…

The boring basics: I’m 22 years old, I’m from Thunder Bay, Canada, and in 2018 I moved to Edinburgh, Scotland. For the past six years blogging has been a hobby for me while I focus on my studies. I have an HBA in History, Specialising in Military History, and now I work as a Freelance Writer and Tour Guide!

I am a wild Harry Potter fan. On one hand I’m a Leo (also VERY into astrology and a bit of a horticulturalist), but to the HP fans here, I’m a Gryffindor, and a Thunderbird, so I’m always striving for challenge and change!

to really know me...

I love soft things and sweet colours like pinks and peaches and yellows. I love being by water and I love taking pictures on polaroids and disposable cameras and not really knowing how its going to turn out. I love sparkles and shiny things, I love small plants and big leaves and being with my dogs. I love comfy jeans and oversized sweaters, I love changing my hair and wearing red lipstick. I love talking about clothes and style and new beauty products and I love talking about history and socialism and the legacies of imperialism (but youย probably won’t see that here). I’m always a little of this, and a little of that, which makes it hard for me to find a blogging niche without hiding important parts of my dynamic. I have big, big plans and still no plans at all.

  1. Hi, I love reading your blog every time a new post comes out. I am a gamer and design student not a blogger but I was wondering if you had any advice? Thanks!


    • I would just say blog about things you’re interested in because your enthusiasm about it can be felt by the reader. Also make sure you use tags (but only 15) so you can have your posts be found by more bloggers. Play around with WordPress themes to pick one that you like and play around with the different settings they have and get to know it a bit better! As you write more posts you’ll find posts that you like writing and posts that you don’t like writing as much! For me, I don’t really like doing favourites of the month but I really like doing reviews! Just start writing and feeling stuff out, make friends with some other bloggers by looking at tags you’re interested in and commenting on posts you like!


  2. you know what we are similar.
    i am a 19, full time student. I just started blogging (didn’t post yet). I agree with you. It’s hard to manage the time especially when you have a lot of school related stuff. And also you don’t have to buy expensive products to have a good blog/posts. I really like your blog.Keep going. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. It’s wonderful to “meet” you Sabrina! I’m impressed that you’re able to maintain this blog so well while also going to school full time and working. If you don’t mind, how do you find time for all of this? I’m about to be going back to school too, and am wondering how I’ll find time for blogging when classes begin.

    • Thank you! For me blogging & YouTube are my absolute favourite hobbies because I can work on them and still feel like I’m working towards a finished project, all the effort I put in is tangible. I honestly just really enjoy blogging, so when I’m fed up with school work or just want a break I tend to turn to my blog to do some work there instead. I’m always writing about things that I’m already interested in or know a bit about, and I just put in the work whenever I have the time to and then schedule it to be posted at a decent time of the week. Usually it all works out to being around one or two posts and at least one video a week, but the work goes in whenever I can find the time ๐Ÿค—Hope this helped! Good luck ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    • Thanks Sabrina! I definitely like the idea of writing about things that you’re already thinking about or know something about, because researching totally new topics can take a lot of time. Since my classes will be somewhat related to the theme of my blog, I suppose I could write about the things I have to study for school anyway.

      I’m glad it always works out for you in the end! That makes me feel less worried about how I’ll keep up with my own blog.

      Thanks for your response! It’s been very reassuring!

  4. I can totally relate as a full-time college student myself. As much as I love trying new products, a lot of the time it’s just not all that possible. Blogging is a very new hobby of mine as well. I’m trying to find the time (and motivation, if I’m being honest) to be consistent with my posts. I look forward to following and seeing more of your posts! ๐Ÿ™‚
