Welcome to my blog! My name is Manisha. I'm a 17-year-old Lifestyle Blogger from Northamptonshire, UK I am a 2nd year A-Level Student currently doing Politics, History, English Literature. In my spare time, aside from blogging and reading, I co-host the @Sixth&ME podcast 🤍
I love reading fiction. More specifically, romantic fiction and chick-lit. I know, I know it's not the most exciting to read and can be very mundane and cliche. That's why this summer I decided to widen my literature range. I discovered new and exciting authors and I definitely won't be going back to chick-lit for the time being (even if it is easy-reading and heartwarming). DISCLAIMER: This blog post includes spoilers! Below, are five books (not chick-lit, you shall be pleased to know) that I thought were truly remarkable. They have all been published fairly recently, maybe one day I will give myself the challenge of branching out to classical novels!
Glossier launched in the UK in February 2018 and has made a name for itself ever since. This sought-after beauty brand is sure to knock those bags off out from under your eyes. With around 35+ products on their website, you may find it overwhelming to decide what you should purchase. Lucky for you, I will be sharing my top 5 products in this post!
Ever heard of a 'GYST' day? A Get Your Sh*t Together day? A day where you can take the time to organise, tidy and rejuvenate yourself. You might be thinking of a 'Sunday' however, 'GYST Days' - a term created by Kalyn Nicholson, a Canadian YouTuber are crucial to being successful in either work or your studies because here's the truth: Everyone, including you, needs a break. Yep. You heard (well technically read) it. You must allow yourself time to reset so that you can come back stronger. However what exactly can you do to reset? Well, you have come to the right place!
I sat down to write this week's blog post, unsure of the theme or content but determined to get it done. This, of course, is impossible when you have no idea what to write! I reviewed my list for backup ideas for moments like this, but none of them really struck me. Eventually, I thought I would write the post that I have been saving. A Q&A. So let's dive right in!
It's that time of year again. That new academic year feeling leaves us all feeling inspired. The physical reset that comes with September is refreshing for us all, but oh do we know that after a few weeks, THAT feeling will go. So here are some things that I like to do to keep myself motivated throughout the day. These tips are applicable whether you go to work, school or work from home!
Not sure how to revise? Is anything sticking at all? Are you constantly overwhelmed and frustrated with revision? If yes, this blog post is for you! If not, perhaps have a read anyway to see if there is anything useful for you to implement.
2020 WHAT A YEAR! A year that took us through many lows and a few noticeable highs. You were different. You gave us a reality check, it was needed but you were brutal. You taught us not to take life for granted and to make the most of every moment. You coerced us into politics and the news. You told us to open our eyes to the wider world around us and to listen to what was going on and to take action. But most importantly, you took too many lives for which you will never be forgiven.
What a long month January has been! At the same time, I can't believe that we are almost into the second month of 2021. The lockdown days are going by pretty slow, but the weeks are flying by! In that time, I have compiled a list of my favourite edible products, pamper must-haves and my chill time accompanies. What activities/shows/products have you been LOVING in lockdown?
