It sounds daft, but if there's one thing I miss about books from my childhood it's the illustrations. I'm like a magpie when it comes to bright, vibrant colours and pictures and can get stuck for a good ten minutes just looking at one image I really admire. Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman had been on my wishlist for a very long time after a recommendation from Carrie Fletcher, but when it arrived and I discovered that it was illustrated? I cursed myself for not having bought it earlier!

In case you haven't noticed, I haven't had a huge amount of time to post on the ol' blog any more. Third year apparently eats up an awful lot of time leaving with me with not that much left to write up posts for all you readers. I thought at the very least I could start actually telling you what I've been studying, week to week. It may even give some of you an idea of what to expect in your final year of uni.
Week Two - I did have this idea a while ago but I haven't had the chance to put it into action. This leaves me with a bit of back tracking to do...

I saw this idea on Tumblr and it seemed to good to not try myself. The idea is simple, every time I wear lipstick I just kiss the page in my notebook then write the date under it. It's not looking very impressive at the minute with just four marks and a lack of continuity in formatting but eventually it will become a gorgeous visual documentation of my life in lip colours. I love finding new ways to use up my notebooks and think this is such a pretty idea... remind me to keep it up!

Every other blogger seems to have anxiety these days so I'm not going to sit here and talk about my experiences with it. My opinions on anxiety blogging can wait for another day but, in short, I think the number of bloggers claiming to have anxiety following Zoella's confessions makes it difficult to be taken seriously when you start talking about your own experiences with it.
Instead, what I'm talking about today is CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. CBT is a form of counselling shown to be particularly helpful with anxiety disorders though many people have never even heard of it.

I'm sure you remember how excited I was last month when I unboxed the first UK edition of 'My Little Box' - a beauty box concept that originated in Paris and brings with it all sorts of french goodies. I couldn't wait for my next box but when I found that designer Diane Von Furstenberg had curated this months edition I can't say I was over the moon.
