Real Self-Care for Students | rosie abigail

In the land of undergraduate (and postgraduate study), a cold chill has fallen across the kingdom. Assignment titles have been released, all are behind on the reading lists, and even the strongest of students have succumbed to the flu. Stress levels are peaking, and people are forgetting what normal sleeping hours are. Two years on…

My 2019 Vacation Reading List | rosie abigail

I’m so excited, I may actually burst! Alright, that is severe exaggeration but it is kind of close to how I am feeling. At the time of writing, I have only ten days left to go until I travel to Florida for a two week holiday. Whaaaaat?! I still can’t comprehend the fact that I…

Alternative Halloween Ideas | rosie abigail

(I've just realised this title makes it sound like I will be discussing emo and indie inspired Halloween plans, which I am unfortunately not - although, I think I am on to something here...). Anyway - It’s spooky time! Time for pumpkin carving, Beetlejuice, mulled cider, and a heck tonne of sweets. It’s also when…

How to Get That ‘Work-Life Balance’ | rosie abigail

Last month, I was scrolling through my blog feed and a post immediately caught my eye. I excitedly scrawled down the title in my blog planner, to be saved for another day. Lo and behold, the post was 'Adventures of a Bibliophile’s' Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag! I have never done a tag, let alone a…

Switching to Cruelty-Free Beauty & Skin Care | rosie abigail

Look, I’m not the most environmentally friendly person out there; I forget my metal straws, I still use clingfilm, and I simply can’t be vegan because of my allergies (that’s another blog post for another time). But, I am trying to be the best green version of myself I can be (green as in ‘caring…

Eating Out (& Surviving!) with an Allergy | rosie abigail

When I was born into this world, I was truly blessed; blessed with creativity, kindness, and a life-threatening nut allergy. In the first few years of my life, I miraculously avoided nuts. My parents only found out about my allergy in my toddler years because, being the greedy sod that I am, I snuck a…
