New Year, Same Me

So yes, it is that time of year when everyone sets goals and resolutions and saying sure it is the 'New Year, New Me' I can do this!! I don't mean to be a party pooper but anytime I have set resolutions I tend to break them within the first month if not sooner... so this year I don’t fancy finding a new me, I’m happy as I am.

With that in mind, I thought lets have a break from talking all about goals for 2018 (that's for now, that is).... And since January can be the really boring tiring month that drags, I want to share all the bloopers and outtakes from my posts in 2017. I guess this is me and I wouldn't change who I am or the people around me. I feel this truly shows how us bloggers are not the stylish creatures some people think they are 100% of the time, so feel free to have a giggle at the pictures of me whilst out shooting photos and probably receiving rather funny looks from people walking on by.

I guess all I can say is I am back and Happy New Year, from the same old me; because why constantly try change something when instead you can just learn to accept yourself for who you are and just live life to its full.

Enjoy, HM x

It is OKAY to not have you s*** together

Sometimes it’s okay to hit a bit of a slump…. Sometimes it's just difficult to motivate yourself to do anything, or whatever you are doing just doesn't make you happy and you know what, I've decided that it is okay. And it is totally okay to not have your s*** together!! I certainly don't have mine together.

Hitting a slump can just happen and you have zero control over it… and then everything builds up to the point of breaking, but the only option really is to just ride it outttttt//go with the flowwww.

For me, it can be in the form of creativity, when I have so much I need to do for uni and everything else I end up just hitting a block… Tends to be when I have had sooooo many ideas but when it’s come down to the actual doing part, it just feels totally overwhelming by everything. It’s kinda like I have all the thoughts, all the creativity flowing, and all the excitement, but at the same time am feeling totally swamped, and therefore do absolutely nothing towards any of it…

I often get mega shitty weeks and sometimes it can put me on a right downer where no matter what I do I am just never satisfied with what I am doing and the littlest of things cause everything to just come falling down and sometimes it's good to just have a little cry now and then. Bc, at the end of the day, are you even human if you don't cry once in a while?

However, after that shitty week it can sometimes give you the space to start again new with a fresh, clear your head and realise what you need to do so you come back thinking ~ HELL YEAH I got this ~ This is where I am right now and I know what I really wanna do, and for me it tends to be making and doing more of what I love to the best standard I possibly can.

Sometimes all it takes is a mini breakdown and the realisation of I really don't have my shit together but who cares. Your struggle and your mess is something to be proud of. One day you will be able to look back and know every tear, every mess you made, every hour you worked, and every hour of sleep you lost caused you to be the success you became.

SO! Then here is to a mini fresh start, plus who cares if it's nearly the end of the year when people say just do it in the new year... well no each day I wanna be able to do something I love and think yeah I got this, you got this, WE totally got this.

Dating On A Student Budget

Being in a relationship whilst being a student certainly, has its benefits. For me, I lurvvvve growing and learning alongside my boyfriend as we navigate and motivate ourselves through university life together. However, it can be straining amongst deadlines, essays and late nights in the library to have the time together doing something we both enjoy with very little cost. 
It's common knowledge that us students have empty purses... SOooo, a few week back we decided to make a list of fun (but cheap) date ideas to suit our student budget.

♡ Cook dinner at home as a date night
♡ Build a blanket fort
