New Word #16: Words Recently Learned

Really enjoyed learning some new words from this post and decided to share it with you guys so we can learn them together 😁

Haoyan Do

sprightly: lively; full of energy. I learned this word from Pooja here. It also shows up in William Wordsworth’s poem, “Along the margin of a bay:/Ten thousand saw I at a glance,/Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.”

bugbear: a cause of obsessive fear, irritation, or loathing. I learned this word from Pooja here.

calisthenics: gymnastic exercises to achieve bodily fitness and grace of movement. I learned this word from Heterodox Buddhist here.

sitch: a situation or state of affairs, usually a bad situation. I learned this word from Bonnyword Manor here. This word is not to be confused with snitch, which means to secretly tell someone in authority that someone else has done something bad, often in order to cause trouble.

tendril: A slender threadlike appendage of a climbing plant. I learned…

Hi everyone. It’s just under three days to the live release of my new book; CROSSROADS (Winds of love) on Amazon.

In this post, I’ll be sharing clips from the Pre-order blog promotion tour. The blogs and websites that hosted and promoted this book are amazing so I hope you read on and explore them.

I’ve written and placed some poetry within this post, which is close to a few themes that are found in the book.

The ocean rages and the falls cascade
Thrills rise, then plummet to impetuous depths
And I think of you
Where once there was love
Now pain remains

If you have been following my blog for a while you probably know that I really admire Jude’s blog and I am a huge fan of his writing. I was so happy to hear that he had put out…

Tips for Dry Skin

As you guys know I have dry skin and I think these tips are super helpful especially with winter around the corner!

Beautyholics101

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

Getting A Job At Uni: My Top Tips!

Working while at university is harder then it seems so here are a few very helpful tips to help you find a job!

Abi Louise Allen

A longer post today focusing on what so many students worry about…

I think we all know university can be a huge financial struggle for a lot of people, some people only get a small loan that doesn’t cover their rent, some get no loan and others are not in a position to borrow money when needed. So, for many people getting a job is a necessity while studying.

For me, my loan unfortunately only covers half my annual rent total and all the money I saved working over summer just wouldn’t be enough to cover 6 months rent, food money, social money and transport and therefore, I had to find a job.

Whilst most universities are based in cities, and you’d think finding a job because of this would be easy, for students this just isn’t the case, for many businesses aren’t willing to…
