Dear Deadlines


Throughout December I've been busy writing my assignments. I'm still writing them and they haven't finished them yet. Which is why I thought I'd add a little humour to the situation. Maybe some of you have assignments due soon and need to vent like me. Maybe what I have to say will be relateable to you?

Make Up: Maybe There's More To It


I'm aware it's now December so a little late for my November post, I've been busy with uni work and I came upon this concept yesturday when I was out (30/11/2017) and didn't get a chance to write it. So since this is a late entry I'll keep it nice and simple.

Yesturday me and my sister met up so she could help me buy make up. I don't wear any, unless it's for a special occasion and have someone do it for me. Now that I'm going to leave education and enter the real world, it'll be a useful skill to know how to "groom myself". Maybe I'll even like it, if I learn it and feel as if I'm in control, I can do it by myself.

Here's a summary of our day: we arrived to stratford separetly, met up and went to a few stores like H&M, Office and Clarks. I looked around the shop myself, didn't buy anything. However I learnt that I'm a standard (I think that's the term for people with narrow feet?) size 3 and a 1/2 at Clarks and that there are a lot of different types of trainers out there. I know tgey're different but they seem similar to me? If I'm interested I'll look into them more online and see what I like. We then went to John Lewis to have my make up done at the more expensive counters. I think this was to see what works on me, what shade I am etc. I felt relaxed during the process. Although I couldn't see what my face looked like once the make up was done (#blindgirlproblems) , I was told I looked nice. We then had lunch at a Mexican place and went to Boots, where a nice lady put some make up on me, I think it was a cream or concealer, blusher and the lipstick froendship. Once she was done,  my sister and I decided it woyld be easier for me to start off with the basics. I swatched some NYX lipsticks on my hand picked out the ones I like, helped her pick some too, got some lip liners (side note: they don't have to match your lipstick), blusher and  some Real Technique brushes. Lastly we went to a shoe shop where we both got some nice boots for winter and I also got cute trainers to work out in. Overall I had a nice time.

Illuminate Freedom: A Place for Health, Fitness and Fun


This blog post is about my experience at a free taster dance class for visually impaired people. Illuminate Freedom is an organisation that provides a variety of gentle movement, health, fitness and dance programmes for visually impaired people. The activities increase body awareness, confidence, balance and participate in accessible classes. They use audio description and careful pacing to make the tasks creative, lively and most importantly easy to follow.

Second Year Struggles


The last time I wrote anything on here it was back in 2016, so it's been a long time. To be fair I have been busy and today I'm going to talk about what I've been doing. As the title suggests this post is about my second year of university and the lessons I've learnt through some tedious tasks.
