Hi readers!

I would like to wish everybody a happy Easter 2021! I believe I’ve appreciated spring coming more than ever.

Two years today our journey began.

Hi readers,

So I thought I would do a celebratory blog post. As two years ago Ben and I began our relationship.

There have been many obstacles along the way, such as distance and a pandemic. However, I think it has made us stronger in the long run.

It’s funny how much we have both changed during these two years. I believe as we have grown as people our relationship has to.

Thank you for always pushing me to be my best!

Thank you for reading.

How positive comments make an impact.

Hi readers,

So I have been reflecting on my “thank you readers” post. Mainly the feelings I had whilst receiving positive comments from other bloggers.

It honestly made me feel so good. Getting congratulations from people I had never met. That people had taken their time when they didn’t need to.

It has taught me a life lesson. Words are so important. One nice comment could make a massive impact on someone’s life.

From now on, I’m going to try to make an effort to give a positive comment. As now I’ve realised even more the impact it has.

Thank you for reading.

Hi readers,

Since I have never done things you probably don’t know about me post, I thought it would be fun, so here goes.

  1. I’ve always lived in the same house- In a place called Kent in the UK.
  2. I’m a little short- Being 5’1 I’m not always the tallest person in the room.
  3. It took me five attempts to pass my driving test- My nerves always let me down. Funny enough I passed during the lockdown.
  4. My first job was as a lifeguard- I was seventeen at it was at the local leisure centre.
  5. I’m an only child- People are surprised to hear I’m an only child.
  6. My favourite animal is a dog- Always has been since I was a little girl.
  7. I’m afraid of birds- It’s pretty random, but it’s a genuine fear.
  8. Pokémon Go is my guilty pleasure- I started it during lockdown boredom and now I’m pretty hooked.
  9. My favourite subject at school was Drama- I would’ve done this subject all day at school if I could’ve.
  10. I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie- I love roller coasters and theme parks. I’ve been on Over the Edge in Amsterdam. the highest swing in Europe.

Hope you enjoyed reading.

The Silent Daughter Book Review- Claire Amarti

Hi readers,

So it’s been a while since I’ve done a book review. I’ve just finished reading the silent daughter. This book is available on Kindle Unlimited.

The silent daughter features Sadie Kelly, a teacher at a school with a haunting past. Suddenly, a school-girl she teaches goes missing. Will she cope with the secrets revealed to her. How will Sadie cope when she realises someone knows her secrets?

This book has unexpected twists and turns. I like how this book addressees lots of sensitive subjects (mental health etc). In my opinion, this makes the story seem real and relatable.

However many good points. It is still another book that wouldn’t be a stand out to me. Even though I did still like it.

I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys a good page-turner with lots of suspense.

I would give this book a 3.5/5

Thank you for reading.

My tips for studying at home.

Hi readers,

So as some of you know, I’m currently an Open University student. When I began studying from home, I struggled a little to adjust. Here are some tips and opinions I’ve come up with that helped me study.

Chose a designated space- A space free from distractions, and gets you in the mindset of studying. I find having everything I need in that space helpful.

Create a schedule- I like to know how long I need to spend studying. A routine allows me to use my time wisely.

Take regular breaks- Give your brain time to rest.

Remove distractions- I try to go somewhere quiet where disturbance is low (easier said than done)

Join groups- I learnt so much by joining WhatsApp and Facebook groups of people, who are studying the same as me.

Believe in yourself and work hard- Whether it’s online or in a school. Have the confidence in yourself. Try the hardest you can and be proud.

Have fun- I know how stressful studying can be, but I try to enjoy it as much as I can.

How do you guys like to study from home?

Thank you for reading.

Take care Lauren x
