Moving On From Unhealthy Friendships

Recently, I've noticed myself transitioning. I mean, realistically, the whole of 2018 has been a year of growth, and recognition, but during this latter half, a change has happened that I didn't imagine would...

Reading is one of those things that will always be priceless to me. One book can change your life, and your way of thinking, and there have been a few over the years that have had that exact affect on me. 'Killing Honour' by Bali Rai is one of them.

How To Write The PERFECT Personal Statement

I'd be lying if I said that Year 13 hasn't been a challenge so far. From the moment that the term started back in September, I knew that the real pressure had begun. All of the focus was on personal statements, UCAS, revision, and preparing for a new period in our lives. It's quite daunting when you're still only 17 years old, let me tell you...

I'm aware that the majority of people who read my posts are either teenagers, or young adults, so presumably, a lot of you are in the same position as me right now, or you will be in the near future. As I've already sent off my personal statement (the deadlines fast approaching!), and got back offers from all of my choices except 1, I thought that sharing these tips may be slightly helpful, so let me know if you find that they are!

4 Fashion Trends That Don't Seem To Be Going Anywhere

Every fashionista knows that it is important to stay ahead of the latest trends! No one wants to turn heads for all of the wrong reasons. There is nothing worse than hearing someone say: ‘That’s so last season!’ The trends we are going to take a look at in this blog post have been in season for many months and even years now, and they don’t seem to be going anywhere…

Feminine – There is only one place to begin and this is with the flirty and feminine style, which is ideal for the summer months in particular but can easily be adapted to suit the winter. Think of tea-length skirts, skater dresses, and other fun, elegant and feminine garments. You don’t have to make the entire ensemble feminine and flirtatious. One of the biggest trends for this year is to wear contrasting styles as one. So, why not team your flirty skirt with an athletic crop top to create a funky look?
Bold Prints – Bold prints are fun, eye-catching and offer an excellent way of showcasing your personality. There are so many prints for you to take advantage of nowadays. If you are looking for something flirty and feminine, go for floral. If you want something loud and bold, opt for a graffiti print. Or, do you want something contemporary? If so, geometric prints are definitely the option for you. From small prints to loud patterns, there truly is something for all tastes and all personalities.
Futuristic – Futuristic trends are perfect for those who wish to make a bold impression yet maintain a hint of glamour. Opt for metallic shades, such as silver and gold. Shiny materials and striking silhouettes are ideal for this trend. The great thing about rocking the futuristic look is that you can easily go for something casual, such as a metallic silver jumper, a pair of leggings and some funky hi-tops, just as easily as you can go for something dressy. Why not team a metallic pencil dress with a pair of striking stilettoes for instance?
Classic  - Last but not least, classic fashions have been in trend for a long time. Fill your wardrobe with a selection of oxford shirts, which can be worn in and out of the workplace. Team with one of the stylish Lakeland leather handbags to finish the look. The tailored style is one that has long been popular. This is a great look, as it is chic, elegant and sophisticated, with a hint of sexiness. Wear with a dash of confidence and you will have all eyes on you no matter where you go.

So, which of these trends will you be rocking? Do you want to go for the futuristic look? Or, do you prefer something more flirty and feminine?

Deciding on the right career is a tough decision to most of us. You’re supposed to be in this field until you retire, after all, and the more time you give yourself to excel in it, the higher your chances are of becoming successful.

Yet, an increasing number of people seem to be jumping from one career to the other instead of diving deeper into the field they’ve chosen. We become bored with things, want something new, and need other kinds of challenges.

While there's nothing wrong with choosing a different career later on, you’re still going to miss out on valuable years that could have been spent in the right one. Here is a handful of tips to make sure that you’ve come to the right decision so that you can make the most out of the time you’ve got.
