revision musings


I should probably be revising rather than writing this post but I thought it would be fitting to do a little update as I never really chat with you on my blog.

Starting with recent blog updates I’m only going to be posting once a week for the next month or so; you might’ve already noticed I didn’t post last Thursday (I’ll try to post more but it probably won’t happen soz) due to end of year exams. I would love to be able to write more however it’s just not doable if I want to get good grades, they’re meant to be like mock GCSEs so I’m not stressing too much but then again I don’t want to get bad results then kick myself for spending too much time on my blog opposed to if I did a substantial amount of revising. I also don’t want to post anything that I’m not totally happy with and after exams are over I’m going to try and learn more about my camera so I can produce better quality photos alongside my posts. There are definitely other posts that I want to write and they’re not all about beauty or fashion – I wanted to take other directions on my blog and I hope you’ll enjoy what I post as I love writing for this blog so much, regardless of the genre or ‘niche’ that it falls in.
Other than drowning in the depths of revising and procrastinating (it once resulted in me folding my jeans and putting them into my drawers, save me pls) I also got back from my practice DofE expedition on Saturday. Anything I learnt? It was my first time camping and all I would say is my feet are currently in pain. It’s also made me realize just how unfit I am as I was trying so hard to keep up with the boys in my group (there were five boys and two girls including myself) and I think once my feet have recovered I’m going to hopfully, possibly, maybe start running. Improving my fitness was something I want to do in my summer bucketlist as well but doing DofE was almost a wake up call and it’s made me really motivated to improve my health in general. Other than my feet being in pain it was great and I can’t wait to do the final next month (if anyone doesn’t know what DofE is it you basically go on a camping expedition/walk twice and help the community etc). 
On a beauty related note I haven’t bought any makeup since the start of April which is shockingly suprising (I did buy a nail varnish but that doesn’t count… I think) and I actually don’t feel any lust to buy any new makeup which is due to the fact I have no money, but also because I haven’t really seen any makeup I need *stares at screen in shock*. I’m still feeling like I need the ABH brow pomade in my life though, so please leave me your opinion in the comments as I’m very undecided. Do I need this product in my life or don’t I? #lifedecisionswitheleanor 
In other news I’m looking forward to this summer a lot, I have some excited things planned both in my personal life (aka getting tickets for the Catfish and the Bottlemen and the 1975) and for my blog so look out for some exciting things coming this way!  
My friend sent me this photo so I’m not sure what the source is but it’s prettyyyy and I wanted to included it, Esme if you’re reading this I’m sending it to you as well because the 1975 :)))
Listening to:
Is there anything exciting happening your life lately? I felt like this post was needed just to update you all on life happenings right now 🙂

    Good luck with your exams! I got tickets to see Catfish too and I can't wait! I'm nearing the end of my year abroad in Germany and I can't wait to moe back to England and see my family, and it's nearly my birthday :D. Getting fit for this summer is totally on my things to do list (I say this as I'm currently sat eating a biscuit) so I really need a kick up the bum hahaha.

    Good luck for your exams hun! The dreadful season has arrived, and I think pretty much many of us going through this phase are taking a break for a while or being less active, and perfectly fine. Enjoy your holiday trips when they arrive, and I will be looking forward to upcoming blog posts 😀

    Lovely post! Good luck on all of your exams! I have also got loads of end of year exams coming up and they are such a pain! I have only heard one song by the 1975 but I really like it so I really need to listen to more of their songs! Is there any really good ones that you recommend? X

    Posts like this are my favourite! It's completely fine not to post often, but don't over-stress yourself with exams I hope you do well, so good luck! I also definitely need to get fit this summer, as next year my roommate says she goes running almost every day and wants me to come along! That's scary as I'm not that fit, but at least I have two months to work on it.
