I've recently joined the site Campus Society which is a brilliant way to connect with like-minded students across the globe. You can interact with other users all over the world. 

The blogging programme just involves creating blog posts regularly on topics that interest you and that you feel will be relevant to the student user base they have on the platform. You have complete freedom in how you choose to express yourself. 

You can post directly onto the platform or you can also share the content you already have on your blog. They provide great exposure by putting you in direct contact with an engaged, friendly, and community-driven audience, as well as through the sharing of quality content on all of their external social media pages, and through direct 'Push' notifications on-site. 

#NotAd - I just know someone who works there and they got me on to join!

Following on from the footsteps of Sophia from My Little Box of Beauty, I'm going to do the #10ThingsAboutMe tag for the #NetworkNewbie comp for this week so below are some facts about me. My original list was 30 things, so I'll probably wait a while before I do this post again and again...!

1. I started blogging in 2011 (it's been a wild 6 years!)

2. My brother named me

3. I'm a girl who likes to play video games (mostly open world games)

4. My mother was born in India and my dad was born in Kenya, but I'm British born

5. I'm that girl that takes photos of everything (including posting food pics on Insta!) - I have multiple external hard drives to prove it!

6. I am obsessed with stationery, makeup and clothes!

7. I spend way too much on the above...

8. I speak two languages fluently - English and Gujarati and know Spanish at elementary proficiency. I also know the bad words in Swahili!

9. I've been stung by a jellyfish THREE times (it was a baby one, so not lethal)

10. I sincerely think I am the luckiest person alive because of the family and friends I have

Christmas Wish List 2017


ASOS Soft Backpack with Zip Detail // Waterproof toiletry organiser // The Little Book of Hygge // Pandora Snowman Charm // Pandora Present Charm // LovexStylexLife Book // Makeup Brush Bag // Alexa Chung IT book // Lush Brazened Honey Face Mask // Fujifilm Instax 20 shot film // Cup Make up Brush Holder // The Little Book of Feminism // Lush Oatifix Face Mask // SkinnyDip Tangle Teezer // Capture Your Style // Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask // Inside Vogue // How to be Parisian book // The Little Dictionary of Fashion // Fitbit 

*Since this post went up originally I bought myself the Makeup brush cup holder, makeup brush case and a Fitbit Alta HR and a review will follow...

Despite the title of this post, I’d like to start with a caveat that I’m not under any illusions that I’ll be receiving any of these items on Christmas day. I’m very aware of my expensive taste and as such this wish list serves, if anything, as an aspirational list for myself. Things I want, and probably will buy (over time!) but certainly don’t need or expect to receive from anyone else on Christmas day.

With the disclosure now over and done with, I can carry on with the post. As you can see my taste is quite mixed, none of these things is necessary but nice to have. Every item above is self-explanatory but I'll walk you through a couple. 

I've gotten quite good at packing over the few years with my travels, and using packing cubes have been a life saver and I normally purchase mine from Amazon and I came over this toiletry organiser bag which is something I don't have at the moment and not something I need at the moment as I have no plans to travel at the moment. But who knows summer 2018 isn't far off! 

I've been wanting a new Fitbit for a while as my Fitbit Flex is having numerous issues and it's become outdated. I like keeping fit and the Fitbit has helped me so much in this instance.

I do facemasks every other day as I have dry-oily acne prone skin, therefore, I go through quite a lot of masks and need new stock plus once you've used your Lush pots you can give them back in-store and they'll give you a free fresh face mask in return with the recycling programme.

Whatever I get for Christmas I’ll be delighted. For me, I’m just excited to experience a Christmas with my lovely family, in the brisk Berkshire air. It’ll be fun to look back at this wish list next year to see what I managed to tick off throughout 2018!

What’s on your Christmas wish list?
