Top Tips for Affordable Travel

Hello!

I’d promised I’d write a post on this a while ago now but – as with most things lol – I got distracted and completely forgot.

As a student who travels a lot, I always get asked “but how do you afford it?!” – understandably. Especially when I’m normally complaining how poor I am (while simultaneously buying more clothes and booking more holidays haha). So I thought I would share with you all my top tips for affordable travels! Continue reading

Dealing with Negativity in a Competitive World

Hello!

A bit of a different post today that I think will resonate with a lot of people. I know from experience that when you decide to pursue something you are passionate about, you get a lot of criticism and negativity. Sometimes it comes from a good place, where people want you to improve or do better, but more often it comes from bitter, competitive people who don’t want you to succeed. What do we do in these situations? Continue reading

The DOs and DON’Ts of Charity Shop Shopping!

Hello all!Β 

So, despite my New Years Resolution being to dedicate more time to my blog, third-year uni work has thoroughly engulfed me so far. I have a 5000 word essay due on Thursday that I’d neglected over Christmas and which I am now regretting… very VERY much.

Anyway, as a break from crying over my essay (I so wish this was a joke lol), I am FINALLY getting round to writing this blog post I have been really excited about creating!! The Dos and Don’ts of charity shop shopping!

When an outfit gave me confidence…

Although you might think a person who starts a fashion blog must be a confident, assured person – you’re wrong. I really struggle with my self confidence and find some days extremely difficult. I think social media only makes this feeling worse when it’s so easy to see ‘likes’ as a reflection of your worth. You see all the examples of perfection on your feed and feel like you just can’t live up to them. Even though I know its stupid to feel this way, I do. Recently I’ve been doubting myself so much, wondering if I was stupid for starting this blog as I feel like I’m neither pretty nor do I have a great body.

My winter outfits in Austria / Germany!

So here I am with my first ever official blog post (oooh!) I’m really nervous about starting this new journey so thank you all for your support so far in helping me set up this blog, I really am so grateful (cheese!!!)

I got back from Austria on Wednesday this week and although I have a stack load of uni work waiting for me to start, I’ve been desperate to get this blog post out as I’m so excited to show you all what I’ve been wearing while I’ve been away – am I the only one this obsessed with clothes? Lol. It was freezing the entire time we were gone, around -5 degrees or less each day, so it was a great opportunity for me to get all my warmest gear out (although lets not lie in England we pretty much need our warmest gear for 10 months of the year too haha).

Starting a blog?!?

 

Hello!

So here I am, writing a blog post. I’ve been debating for the past few months whether or not I had the guts to do it, but here I am!

My name is Lydia. I’m a third-year history student looking for a new outlet for my procrastination (lol). I love fashion and travelling, but at the same time, have no money and an overwhelming debt on my shoulders. So how is it I afford to travel, look good and still have money to live?
