Announcement: Site Changes 2020

Hello everyone!

As you have already noticed, this website has been quiet in the past several months. The reason for this is that I am going through a bit of a change of passions lately especially since my university graduation is nearing. There are certain aspects of my life I want to switch around so I know I am doing something I love rather than feeling obligated.

Therefore I will converting this blog! The main posts will consist of topics related to writing and reading fiction (both original and fan works) along with some sprinkles of music themed posts. I love makeup but it is definitely becoming more of a personal interest rather than something I want to pursue in my career.

Hopefully you understand this change. Life is so unpredictable and you never know where it is going to lead you but one thing I know is that this decision makes me the happiest. I really enjoyed creating makeup related posts but I am also looking forward to opening this chapter.

Thank you for reading!

– Ashley.

After going through my first year of university, I’ve decided to compile a list of things that I learnt and that would be useful for you once you start this new point in your life. Let’s get started!

Benefits of Travelling

Travelling can sound like a stress trigger in itself when you think about all the planning and organising to do. But it can be an important tool for people to refresh their mind a little. Seeing the same house, sitting at the same table and eating the same food can get redundant at times which can put a damper on your mood as well.
