A Little Life Update

Hey, hi, hello. Remember me?! I know, it’s been a little while since my last post. An entire month I think? (*cry*). I’m sorry!! I get so restless when I can’t post on here, I miss it! But don’t worry, I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth and I have so much exciting stuff planned. I CANNOT WAIT.

Buuuuut, basically, the main reason I haven’t been posting lately on here or my socials is because uni has taken over my life. I’m now even starting to dream about exams and lab reports haha. The final year of my degree is shaping up to be even more challenging than I expected! However, my hardest exam was completed yesterday (YAY) and I only have two more to go for this semester with my last one being next Thursday. I am sooo freakin’ excited. … View Post

Daisy Dukes and D&M’s

Hi friends!

Sorry for being a little quiet on the blog this past week but I have good reasons, I promise: 1) uni started back and 2) I’ve been busy working on my little project I keep hinting about which I cannot wait to show you guys! I must say though, this project is taking up much more time than I expected, but I’m sure it will all be worth it in the end. And of course when I start working on something, I tend to fixate on it and forget about my other responsibilities haha, so I’m trying to find more balance now that uni has started back.

So, as you could imagine, for the last few days I’ve been a lil’ bit boring; I’ve been glued to my computer working/studying or in a lab lol. BUT, last weekend I did go down to the coast to where Ryan lives (unfortunately we’ve always lived about an hour away from each other) and shocker, we went on a little sunrise adventure early Sunday morning. On the drive down to the beach we were a little unsure as to whether or not it would be worth it because as the beach drew near, so did gloomy rain clouds! Call me crazy, but I thought the rain clouds added a little something extra. They made it more interesting; beautiful, even.

Perhaps it’s just the long week talking here, but I like to think that goes for us as people too. … View Post

What To Expect On CL in 2017

Hey guys,

Whilst I’ve already uploaded all my New Year themed posts earlier this month, I never actually had a little chat to you guys about what you can expect too see here on the blog in 2017! First things first, I just want to thank each and every one of you that supports me and my blog, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the support. You are amazing.

Ok, now that the mushiness is out of the way, I want to share with you guys a little taste of what I’m planning for this year:… View Post

Reflecting Over 2016

And just like that, another year has passed. I love these quiet days after the excitement of Christmas passes and the New Year Celebrations have yet to begin. It’s the perfect little lull for reflection. It’s important to reflect over the year just passed before racing off to plan your New Year’s Resolutions, as it plays a huge part in how you tackle the new year ahead. Only through reflection, can you truly grow. With that said, find a quiet spot and rejoice over all your accomplishments (no matter how small!), mourn for your losses, find the hidden lessons within any of the darker moments, pat yourself on the back for anything you did well and think of how you can improve as a person in the next 365 days. To help you out I’ve compiled a list of questions to ask yourself: What was the best thing that happened this year? What was the most challenging thing that happened this year? What are the most important life lessons this year taught me? How will these help me in the new year? In what ways have I changed in the past year? What could I have handled better? What sparked a fire within? What brings me the most joy? Who were my most valuable relationships with? What was a positive habit I adopted this year? What bad habits did I drop? What things did I spend most of my time on? Do these bring me happiness? When was my time most valuably used? What was the biggest time-waster? In what ways did I grow career-wise? In what ways did I grow emotionally? How can I simplify or streamline my life? What were my priorities? Do these need revising? What should I limit or stop doing in 2017? What will I continue doing in 2017? To finish it off, celebrate every little victory and your general awesomeness 😉 Before I go, please don’t be hard on yourself if 2016 didn’t pan out as you had hoped. Even if you don’t feel like you achieved anything or reached any of your goals, no year is ever wasted. Being gifted 365 days of life is a pretty good year in my books. Not only that, but if you can reflect on 2016 and find the hidden life lessons and little nuggets of wisdom, especially in times of darkness, then you’ve had an extremely valuable year.… View Post

I’M BACK!

  Hey, Hi, Hello. It’s me. I AM BACK! And boy, am I glad. Seriously, three weeks away from the blog feels like an eternity. On that note, please forgive me for my absence. I have yet to master the fine art of balancing blogging with drowning in a heap of end-of-year university assessment. Plus, I refuse to share some half-assed post just for the sake of it (I’m a firm believer in always using your full-ass). However, I promise to make it up to you. As of now I’m on summer break and I have SO many exciting things planned. I can’t wait to share them all with you. Let the adventures begin… xo
