THE AUTUMN EDIT #8

So, this week hasn’t been the best for me and I’ve been feeling absolutely rotten! I had to take a say off school, leave early and cancel all my weekend plans which consisted of a trip to the Harrogate Christmas Markets with my bestie. As you can imagine I’ve been moping around most of the time – but managed to get some stuff done. Let’s see the Autumn Edit numero 8! Thanks to Moonpig, I am really in the festive mood this year!

HOW I GOT ON THE BBC

HOW I GOT ON THE BBC

So, around this time last year one of the most surreal and strangely incredible things happened. I ended up live on BBC Radio 5 Live. That may not be a bit thing to you guys, but for me it was HUGE. It all started a year ago back in April. I had moved back to my uni city of Manchester, although I had some family around, I lost most of my uni friends to their hometowns. So, when I moved back I didn’t really have many people to hang out…

GOING BANANAS THIS SUMMER WITH MUSTARD *

If there is one thing I love the most about Summer it’s being able to enjoy the outdoors! Reading, writing and eating!  It’s good for the body and for the mind.

What makes picnics even better is having the cutest tuppawear around! Mustard is making me literally go bananas…over it’s quirky snack boxes and accessories!…
