Tips For Avoiding Procrastination – Students

Ironically, I have been avoiding writing this post for quite a while now. I am the Queen of procrastination.

However, as this is my final year of University, I’m finally […]

So far, my Autumn hobbies seem to involve ridiculous amounts of fashion books, chocolate and romantic films… Therefore it’s only right that I dedicate this post to three of the best style and beauty reads I currently have on my Uni book shelf.
