Five ways I take time out


I'm always a busy bee whether its work, college, spending time with Calum, family and friends, etc. I just can't seem to get my brain to just stop and take time away from everything sometimes. So I thought I would write a few things I do to just "escape the norm".
1. Getting my nails and eyebrows done
Every three weeks I pop into the beauty salon, which I have been going to for about 5 years now, to get my nails and eyebrows done. My nails are Calgel, which doesn't ruin your nails (yay), with a shellac colour on top. The colour in this photo is Field Fox. They take about an hour to put on, but they make me feel like me when they're on and I love having a catch up with the girls! Regarding my eyebrows, they are HD. This means they are dyed, waxed, threaded and tweezed to achieve the perfect colour and shape.

Our Valentines Day!


So from my last post regarding what we were doing on Valentines Day failed, I thought I'd share on what we done instead! We were meant to go to the Highland Wildlife Park in the Cairngorms but the snow there was horrendous, so we decided to go to St Andrews Aquarium.. then the snow hit there too..

Do I regret not going to university?


When I was a little girl, I always said I wanted to be a nurse. I used to spend hours pretending my teddy bears and dolls were patients, or I'd pick on family members to have a bandage wrapped around their head.
When I got to high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I felt like I had to follow the crowd, so I applied to go to college for beauty therapy, but I didn't hear back in time as I got an apprenticeship by then. If you asked me what a business and administration apprentice was back when I was in high school I wouldn't have a clue. I don't know anyone who dreamed to be an office worker. I use the term office worker, as since I have left school I have worked for three different companies, firstly as an office administrator/receptionist, then senior administrator and now document controller.

Tips for working full time, studying and having a social life


People must think I'm mad sometimes when I tell them that I have a 42.5 hour a week job, studying a college course and STILL have the time to socialise!
I work as an Administrator for a construction company, so I've had to get used to the long hours quickly. The only two good things about working all these hours is the pay and finishing at 2:30pm on a Friday.

Desk Goals


Oh Pinterest, why do you taunt me?
I have a whole board on  Pinterest just covering the office area and desks. We hope when we eventually get a house to make the smallest bedroom into a little office area and I can't wait! It would be so handy for me for college work and for blogging. Calum also has a gaming PC so we would need to get a couple desks for the room.

Love is in the air!

I can't believe Valentine's day is nearly upon us already! Before Calum and I got together, I never really experienced Valentine's day. I think once I went to the cinema with someone I was dating but that was it - I don't think the cinema is the best date as you can't really talk. I also remember when I was a kid, my mum and dad would "post" a couple valentines cards though the door - I had a shock one year when I genuinely got a Valentines card from someone!
