Blogtober #19 // Being a Better Friend

Hey Spookies! Lately I've been thinking I could be a better friend. I'm absolutely guilty of waiting for people to contact me first, then being sad when they don't. I think this is a habit plenty of people have but I want to make an effort to break it.

Blogtober #9 // Self Care Favourites

Hello Spookies! Today I thought it'd be groovy to talk about self care. Self care is so important to stop yourself from getting burnt out. If you need to take some time to look after yourself there is nothing wrong with that. It's not 'weak' or 'lazy' or any of those things. In fact, I think everyone should take time for self care, even if you don't think you'll need it. Here are my favourite things to do when I need some TLC.

Blogtober #8 // #LPP Event

Hello Spookies! Today I thought I'd blog about an event I went to what seems like forever ago. It was in July, so it basically was forever ago. The wonderful Liverpool Period Pride event was hosted by Alisha and Samantha and it was wonderful. LPP was in aid of The Whitechapel Centre, a very important cause. Many homeless people have no access to hygiene products during their period, which can lead to really serious health problems. We all donated plenty of menstrual hygiene products and raised money through a raffle and a second-hand stall and I'm super proud of everyone for how much we raised!

Blogtober #6 // My 4 Favourite Vinyls

Hello Spookies! Today for Blogtober I thought it'd be great to talk vinyls. My record collection is definitely in its infancy and is predominantly made up of second-hand eBay finds and charity shop gems. I had a rifle through my tiny collection to pick my top 5 out and they're pretty groovy.

Blogtober #4 // A-Z of Me

Hello Spookies! I thought today I'd do an A-Z of me post! I loved reading Jemma's and really wanted to do my own. So go forth and take an alphabetised look into the weirdo who writes the blog.

Blogtober #3 // Does University Change You?

"You'll totally change at university!"
"Everything will be different at university."
"You'll be a completely different person when you go to university!"


As an 18 year old with serious confidence issues, who was becoming increasingly terrified about going to university, these were the responses I was almost always met with. Even by people who had never been to university. But was this well-meant advice helpful, or true at all?

Blogtober #2 // Viva La Vegan

Hello Spookies! A wee while ago, Freddie and I went to a vegan festival in Liverpool run by the brilliant Viva! and of course, it was jam-packed with amazing vegan brands, from food to clothes to beauty products. Among the many gems was a brand called Viva La Vegan who sell some really fabulous vegan-themed clothes.

Blogtober #1 // Shiverpool

Hello Spookies! It's October, the best month of the year, and time to embark on Blogtober! I've never tried Blogtober or a blogging-marathon before so fingers crossed it goes well, eh? I have a pretty intense month ahead, having just begun a Masters degree and being about to start working as seasonal Halloween staff in a costume shop, so hopefully that will give me lots to talk about rather than making me produce an inconsistent mess of posts.
