5 Days in Lincoln: A Travel Guide

Earlier this year, myself, my family and boyfriend ventured off for a staycation in Lincoln. Obviously, this year travel abroad has been a no-go but we still wanted to get away somewhere and Lincoln was where we ended up! It's a part of the country we'd never really explored before, which was odd considering it's not that far away from us (about a 2-hour drive). Lincoln completely exceeded my expectations and it was so picturesque!

6 Things I wish I Knew Before Starting University

University was something I always knew I wanted to go to and after completing my second year studying English I've realised that were definitely some things that I wish I'd known about before going. Whilst I really enjoy university and my degree is something I am genuinely interested in, uni did not live up to any expectations and it was a complete contrast to anything I'd imagined. In reality, it's actually quite dull with films and TV making it out to be so much more vibrant, exciting and interesting. I really wish I'd known the reality of university before I went so I thought I'd share some things that I wish I'd had an idea about before embarking on a degree!

How to Beat Impostor Syndrome

Guest Post by Wool of the King


Hi everyone, I’m Lauren from I am a third-year Communication and Media student at Bournemouth University and I am going to be giving my advice on how to beat Impostor Syndrome. I am not an expert on mental health by any means, I am just sharing some tips that I use to help me. If you’d like to learn more about me, read my 20 Facts About Me post over on my blog.

“Impostor Syndrome refers to an internal experience of believing that you are not as competent as others perceive you to be. While this definition is usually narrowly applied to intelligence and achievement, it has links to perfectionism and the social context” –
