Blogging Presentations, Egptians and New Apartments

BloggerpresentationI was recently invited to a secondary school in Birmingham to talk about the importance of blogging. I created my own presentation and talked to pupils about how successful people can be if they put enough effort into their passions. I mean, look at Zoella for instance! It was nerve-racking standing in front of a class of children, because you never know what they’re going to say or how they will react. I’m so grateful because every single person was polite and I was so honoured that a lot of them took the time to ask me questions. My favourite was: “Miss, are you a millionaire?”. Not quite, but I’m glad they saw the potential…

A couple of friends are moving to China, so we celebrated in style but dressing up as a country with the first initial of our names. I wanted to symbolise Egypt and it was fun dressing up for a change. I loved drawing on some winged liner.

ApartmentfindsI can breathe a sigh of relief, as I announce I’m finally moving in with my boyfriend after 8 long years. It’s been a long time coming, so whenever I go shopping now, a few items some how end up in my basket. I’m obsessed with white and our new apartment kitchen is red, so I definitely had to buy these canisters from Asda. Next up, I’m stocking up on towels, bed linen and a new bed and sofa. Exhausting, but so exciting!

Clearing out my work bag is something I now like to do after work, and there’s nothing better than going in the next day with an organised routine. I’m completely obsessed with this cookbook by Justine Pattison and I cannot wait to cook more of her recipes in my new place. This week I’m off on a road trip to Norway . What’s your July been like?
