Monthly Memo #4: Going Back to School

Going back to school….? Kind of. November had a lot going on. I’ve started prepping for Christmas, we’ve got our tree (put it up way too early, let’s not talk about that), we’ve got some decorations and we’ve got some gifts, score! November was also a month of trying to get that work/balance life right. And a month of trying to get plants to grow in the flat and how to make it less grimy and more Instagram. A month of trying to keep the flat clean. Also, it had a few weeks of rabid illness thrown in, and a bit of excitement here in there. Most excitingly, my work went on our away days and I started my new apprenticeship. Don’t worry, I’ll explain this whole brain dump.

Life Updates And Goals From July 2019

Hello, hello! Welcome to the first in my monthly life updates/chats series!

The ‘Monthly Memo Life Updates’ will look past at the last month – in this case July – and monthly goals will look forward at the month to come – August. First up is what I got up to in July!

The Dangers of Tinder Dating

So. I’ve covered a LOT about dating in my Carrie Bradshaw series. Since moving to self-hosting, I’ve been going back and editing everything. One theme stuck out, the dangers of Tinder dating. Not the obvious serial-killer ones, but the more sinister ones lurking in the back of your mind. How many disappointing dates do I have to go on? Will I know when it clicks? Will it just make me jaded? As someone who started out on Tinder and found success, I feel like I’ve got some authority on the topic now. Probably more authority than I actually do have.

Maybelline Un-Nude Liquid Matte Lipstick Review

Maybelline Liquid Lipstick Review

I’ve never received any products completely out of the blue like this before so I was surprised and excited to try these. I’m always a little hesitant when I receive a product for free. Mostly I’m thinking ‘if they’re sending it to me for free with no strings attached, how good can it be?!’ And that’s really just my own self-doubt kicking in, isn’t it? A lot of my favourite products are by Maybelline, but I have to say I’ve never been overly impressed by any drugstore lip products recently. Enter the Maybelline Stay Matte Ink, Un-Nude style.

I was instantly drawn in by the colour range in this collection. Not all of the shades are for me, and not all of the ones I love suit my skin tone nicely. But there’s really something for everyone here!
