TIPS ON MAKEUP & SKINCARE!

tempimageforsave

Back with another blog with a twist, I’ve decided I’m going to do a blog to help out the makeup amateurs, the ones in the middle and the highest up! And also you skincare lovers  I got products for you too.

Before we begin, I just want to let everyone know that this blog is for everyone, men/women every single shade of skin tone there is out there, men don’t be discouraged because even if you don’t wear makeup, your other half could,  sister, the mother even brother, I’m not a makeup professionalist and quite frankly wouldn’t want to be, but I’m learning and I want to bring everyone in, if you wanna save money buying products, then I can confirm you are at the right blog, wanna spend big amounts but still wanna have a lot to show for it? I can confirm you’re in good hands, either way, if you clicked this blog you’re at the right place.

Back in the day when I was in school I was so shit at makeup, and the products I used to use I thank God I didn’t get acne or any skin problems due to all the heavy shit I used to put on my face, been quite lucky to have skin with no issues, maybe a few marks here and there  and moles but nevertheless my skin is perfect, my undertones, everything is just good. 

From school to my now everyday life of me waking up early for work etc, I really don’t have time for makeup at all, and I’ll never understand how I had time for it back then.

Anyways enough chit chat, I’m purely writing a blog based around makeup & skincare because over the past two years I have been buying makeup consistently and I mean every month I’d spend around £150 – £200 on products, I’d constantly post what I ordered on my Snapchat and Instagram because I always get overly excited when an order for me comes through the post, except with Hermes I’ll find my parcel everywhere but my house, but that’s a conversation for another day… 

I always get questions on how I purchase items, where I buy, I get compliments on the stuff I buy THE STUFF I BUY not me personally, but all my palettes are bouji so the compliments are appreciated, I’ll be dropping links of the websites I use and the deals that are available, me? I love a sale but I don’t mind buying items full priced either. 

I’m one of those people that you’ll find on page 50 of google trying to find something new, or I’ll go through every website separately, I don’t buy items straight away because I know if I can get a better deal I will purchase it through them, but if there’s no free delivery after I’ve spent £50+ then soz hun I’ll stick with the more expensive price and free delivery, it’s just the way the cookie crumbles. 

Let’s jump straight into it, so I really only shop off of two websites when I buy makeup which are: 

Beauty bay (SHOCK HORROR) 

Fragrance Direct 

I also shop in store but very rarely, I don’t really shop in store for anything unless I’m in a rush and need it ASAP, so the in-store shops I use is just the basics boots & super-drugs, super drugs is actually a scam, pick up 3 items and the cashier will calmly say £63.99, like sometimes I don’t even let them say the price or look at the till, Apple Pay comes out, quick tappity slap, grab my items and go, fuck the receipt. 

Questions:

 How do you purchase your makeup? 

Very simply, I bulk buy from fragrance direct, things like foundation (Rimmel) Mascara (W7 or Rimmel) Bronzer, lip glosses

It seems crazy right, bulk buying makeup but it serves its purpose in the long run and I don’t do it often either because I expect my products to last very well. In my bulk buys depending on the deals I buy 10 Rimmel foundations, the Rimmel ones to me are my cheap go to makeup, if I have time before work I’ll slap it on, or even going out quickly, I buy 5 W7 or Rimmel mascara’s, and about five lipglosses all different shades, all in all I spend about £40 maybe a bit more because they don’t just sell makeup, they do fragrances, hair, body, face etc, you’ll sit there evaluating the price thinking why is it so cheap on here but expensive elsewhere, I can promise you it’s all real, just need to learn where and how to shop, if I can get something cheaper I will. 

Fragrance direct have so many deals, so many discount codes you can use on your order, you qualify for free delivery once you’ve spent over £20, they do amazing deals for example they do:

‘Buy any 5 and get the cheapest one free’

‘Buy 5 for 4’

‘Spend £50 and get 10% off’

Beauty bay is my top lover, that’s where all my big purchases end up being, I can buy palette after palette, make up brushes galore, but how do I really shop in beauty bay?? The question I love to answer, I go straight into makeup then into sets, honestly I don’t have time to be buying one lipgloss when I can buy the whole set, one highlighter when I can buy the whole collection, one brush, when I can buy a 25 piece set for £20, all this singular buying shopping in makeup is NOT for me, I really don’t have the time because I get frustrated so easily makes me want to scream sometimes, and I dip in and out of the outlet because you always find money off items you wanted for time but too stubborn to buy! There are so many products I’ve bought full priced then get an email the next day saying they’ve got 50% off, every time this happens I’m fuming because it happens every time I buy something, how coincidental❌

I feel the beauty bays pricing range is from affordable to OMG this shit is expensive! Sometimes I see products and I’m like ‘ew this stuff is cheap, do I really wanna put it on my face’ but I’m just ignorant as fuck, I buy some cheap ranges to test and try out but I can’t lie I give most of it away, mainly due to me not liking it, I give away makeup like I do sweets, joss take it and go aweh. 

Let’s be hella real, I give away expensive makeup away too, people are like “wHy DoN’t yOU JuST SEll iT” Personally I’m lazy I don’t have time nor patience to put listings up on eBay or Facebook, all people do on eBay is pree your product click the watch button to get you all hyped because you think someone is going to buy it, you get those cheap asses trying to get you to lower the price, bitch get your money up, Facebook I honestly do not have patience, so I’d rather give it away, I’ve given away Fenty Foundation, it was way too dark for my skin tone, when it oxidised and dried it was a wrap because it looked like I just returned from the Caribbean, I’ve given away Anatasia Beverley Hills eyebrow pomade, I simply got the wrong colour, Milani pomade, sigh that was also the wrong colour, can you see the pattern? Morphe eyeshadow kits, I really used to love morphe but the fall out is ridiculous and the palettes I had I really loved the colours to begin with then after a while I just stared at it for time, you know how you look at a photo before you upload it and after a while you’re like ‘NAH MAN’ that was me with morphe so I gave away like 3 big palettes and please I NEVER give away palettes with half of the product missing, I’m highly generous to what I give, but more time if I say do you want… Take it or it’ll sit on my makeup shelf for months.

Sigh, I’m getting tired of typing, bet Y’all are getting tired of reading eyy? Keep your eyes peeled because I’m about to drop some dope palettes, highlighters, lip glosses, one cheeky lipstick, skin care products, it finna be lit in this bihhh.

img_5599.jpgListen I queued up for three hours outside Harvey Nichols, 4 weeks after the launch date, I expected 0 queuing but there I was with my friend, out in the rain talking to random people giving each other motivation speeches saying we will get to the front, I got in before my friend, did I wait? Hell nah, I walked in without her, pretty much finished my purchase by the time she walked in, but I walked out with Fenty foundation (KMFT) and my number 1 lover Trophy wife highlighter, look at that sparkle! £28 was well worth my coins and even yours.

Beauty Bakerie all their products are the bomb, whoever is on the creative team just know you’re doing great hun, the packaging is ELITE! If you’ve never heard of beauty bakerie I suggest you learn today, this highlighter makes me shine like the star I am. Beauty Bakerie is highly inclusive, and also cruelty-free.

Beauty Bakerie Illuminator (Glistened) 

Beauty Bakerie blending eggs, as you can clearly see there are six blending eggs, one already used 📌 When I use any blending egg I wet them, then squeeze out the remaining water, leave it and watch it expand for two seconds, so much easier to use plus your face will be streak free and dewy.

In my opinion, these are 10X better than real techniques blending eggs, do the maths a 4 pack of real technique eggs are £18, but beauty bakerie have 6, cheaper price, the packaging is very enticing.

Blending Eggs RRP £16.50 

Beauty Bakerie Lip scrub, Highly recommended! It’s edible literally taste so so good, I put this on when I’m fresh out the shower waking up or going to sleep, only use a little bit on the tip on my finger and rub it into my lips, usually in a circular motion, it removes dead skin cells or even wear it before you apply any lip products it will prolong wear time.

Lip Scrub £10

BEAUTY BAY WENT INNN ON THEIR OWN PALETTES, EVEN THEIR COLLABORATIONS WERE ON POINT.

So I have all three of the colour Theory forty-two shade palettes, they’re all beautiful in their own way, you see me I love shimmers and each palette I got has at least 5- 10 shimmers in.

There’s also a going out-out palette

All the 42 shade palettes are £25 each, I bought all mine full price then a few weeks later they went down to £17.50 so if you want one with a lower price just keep checking in and out and I promise you, your time will come. If you’re impatient like me and want to try it out ASAP purchase it and give me your review because I promise you this will be one of your best palettes. 

Each palette has a different name:

Origin

img_5530.jpg

Evolve

img_5532.jpg

Identity 

img_5533.jpg

Going out out 

If you’re not a bad bitch already like moi, the going out-out palette will make you that bitch! Turn yo self into thotiana!

img_5527

Y’all think I’m done with Beauty Bay hell no, Beauty Bay X Jordan Lipscombe, that’s what you call a COLLABORATION!

I couldn’t help myself I bought the whole set (three palettes) for £30 on sale, what a bargain, normally they’re £50 for three or £20 for one. 

Let’s have a look at these lil palettes then:

I’m still yet to try these shades but I’ve swatched some of the colours I know this will be a palette I’ll use then give away because some of the colours I’m not sure if they’ll go nicely with my skin tone, but I can always try so who knows this could be a keep or flog.

Okay, let’s swiftly move on…

img_5541

Anastasia Beverley Hill Glow Kit £46

This isn’t a cheap palette to me rather expensive I gripped my chest confirming the purchase with this included, but the metallic glow shades make my face every time I apply this, especially with the natural glow of sunlight gleaming through your window, I apply this on my cheekbones or when I get carried away all over my body, I honestly don’t have a favourite shade, the fall out of this palette is something else I always feel like I’m cleaning around it. Besides the pigments are so strong, the colours can certainly suit all skin tones no cap.

Is that Jeffree star? It is indeed! If you know the history behind Jeffree then you probably sighed at seeing his highlighter, is Jeffree he/she I don’t know, doesn’t even identify as a gender, the main matter is Jeffree is known for racism towards the black community, How did I know this my best friend told me as she bought me this for my 19th birthday, I’ve done little research here and there but I can’t excuse the fact that the makeup line is FIRE! This highlight compliments my skin so well, there are so many makeup brands that are racist yet we still wear them, will I buy Jeffree Star? Yeah, I would, his whole beauty line bangs.

Skin Frost – Sarcophagus: Currently sold out 

 

101% I’m obsessed with highlighters, anything to make my skin glow! This is the Zoeva plasir spice of life highlight set, you see how I say SET a lot, I ain’t no singular buying regular shmegular female, take my coins have them! 

Fun fact: I thought zoeva was Zoella’s brand right at the start, they both start with Zoe, easy mistake❌

img_5545

I don’t like zoella at all, buy me zoella makeup I will sell it on eBay same day, whoever buys it from me I promise you boo boo you’ll get that shit same day if anyone saw Zoella’s advent calendar yeah, kmt that shit was AWFUL, stick to being a Youtuber love, don’t come and ruin the makeup industry.

Anywho…

ZOEVA plasir Highlight set spice of life edition – £31

img_5550

The palettes I was in love with Juvia Place, the packaging, art, colours everything is perfect with these palettes, they’re cheap as well, between £20 – £30 you can clearly tell which palettes I’ve touched and haven’t😂😂 I’ve really abandoned these.

I only have five palettes which are:

The Zulu by Juvia’s £20

The Douce By Juvia’s £20

The Festival by Juvia’s £20

The Saharian II by Juvia’s £20

The masquerade mini by Juvia’s £30

Sunkissed shimmer, this shimmer will knock you the fuck out, you and the sun would end up competing with who’s brighter, but the price is a sweet one.

Sunkissed shimmer £2.99

Revolution, the copycats of the makeup game, Y’all ain’t slick at all. 

I decided to try the revolution liquid highlighter before I bought the cover FX one, of course, the two highlighters look exactly the same, but clearly, ones cheaper I tried this one, the texture is complete bollocks, I literally gave two away straight away, that’s why sometimes I don’t like buying cheap makeup, this stuff didn’t even get a chance to touch my face, quick squirt on my hand little rub in, analysed it “nah ain’t for me still”  

Revolution Liquid Highlighter £6

I love a good lip gloss, especially if it shimmers, shit I just love to sparkle, Ashely Tisdale has her own range of lip gloss, as in sharpay from High school musical she did that, these lipgloss tints are dreamy. 

Illuminate by Ashely Tisdale Enhancing Lip Gloss £2.70 

Shout out my one of my best friends for buying this for me, 25/12/18 from this day forward my lips just looked like sex, this isn’t lip topper you can let any man kiss off have some respect for the expense on your lips.

Rose gold collection long wear lip topper molten gold £13.50

The balm – Plump your pucker 

The set I bought is no longer available on beauty bay and did you see that SET, anyways long story short I believe I purchased these before Christmas, I really needed some lip glosses I DIDN’T REALISE THEY WERE LITERALLY LIP PLUMPERS. it’s literally in the name but when they arrived at my ‘house’ or did they, Hermes?  When they arrived I wore one of them and my lips started tingling I was like “Ight den this is weird lipgloss” until I checked the packaging, I don’t know how I didn’t realise because it even says, another dumb Teeks moment.

My lips are big enough for me, all that unnecessary tingling ain’t for me.

They have nice shades though, they have singular ones on beauty bay.

Plump your pucker £6.50

img_5625

L.A Girl gloss topper £5

I saw this before I completed my order and grabbed it, I love it, keeps your lips moisturized too.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’m sure you can exactly see what this is, if you can’t it’s a penis lipstick, the veins, tip everything, I never bought this the same best friend that I’ve mentioned she bought it, I think I got this on the 18th birthday so nearly 3 years ago, I haven’t used it, it’s too beautiful to look at, I’m not sure on pricing but feel free to get your own.

These are the foundations I use including Rimmel Perfect Match and of course I use L.A girl concealer.

Makeup forever is my expensive foundation (R530) as in I went to get a colour match, as in I went all the way to Westfield white city for colour match, then smoked a joint after because that was hard work, this oxidises so well on my skin, you only really need about 4 drops on a wet beauty blender, it blends well, no streaks after, perfection.

L.A Girl pro coverage (Toast & Warm Caramel) I’ve only used it about five times, I got two different colours as I have yellow undertones, it works let me tell you that for free.

Rimmel perfect match foundation (Deep Mocha) I use this foundation just for work or if I’m going somewhere very quickly, this also works but I find I have to set it very well or I just see prints on my clothes, most of my clothes are FUCKING WHITE, do you see the problem? 

L.A pro concealer(Fawn) Whoever created these congratulations one of the only concealers I’ve used and now I don’t even want to try any other brands.

Makeup forever ‘Matte velvet’ £31

Pro coverage HD long wear illuminating liquid foundation £10

Rimmel Match perfect foundation  £4.49

L.A Girl PRO conceal HD £5

img_5603

Mario Badescu I love this brand, I’m saying I love the whole brand as if I’ve purchased everything from here just the facial mists that rejuvenate my face after each spray, just purchase the 236ml bottle.  

Revolution, I needed something quick but it works!

Mario Badescu facial spray £7-£11

Revolution Hydraulic fixing spray £6

Sascha Buttercup Setting Powder £24.95

One of the best setting powders EVER! Well worth your money.

Brushes

Let me emphasise something I buy brushes in SETS not singulars I don’t have time to scan every single brand and why would you buy a singular brush when you can buy a whole SET for a singular brush price If I vomit.

The brush sets I have:

Glam her booth Gold/Black oval set £25

BH cosmetics rose gold brush set £32

Beauty Bay rose gold glam 18 piece set with stand £39

Morphe set 700 8 piece candy apple  £12

Skincare

I only use 2-4 skin products on my face purely because I don’t have time for a breakout, the only time I break out is my womanly once a month twelve times a year where women get punished for not being pregnant unless you are🤷‍♀️ 

The Ordinary, cheap, affordable and helpful towards your skin, once you use them you won’t look back!

img_5622

My mum went away and came back with this, Lucky enough I realised they sold it here in the UK, I’ve used this so many times whenever a spot appears and it literally washes off your spots or will smooth them down. This is a wash of face mask and not peel off I put it on and leave it on for hours because more time I’m not ready to wash it off yet or things get in the way, but my face feels smooth as a babies bum when it’s all washed off.

Babaria Mascarilla Negra Detoxifying facial £5.99

img_5590

MY TEETH MY TEETH, I LOVE THEM! You only get one set of teeth, some of you really abuse your teeth by getting veneers at such young ages but whats my own, I love brushing my teeth and of course my tongue but I more time end up choking, these teeth whitening charcoal is just the greatest, I brush my teeth first with normal toothpaste normally just Colgate or Sensodyne and then I do my charcoal brush after I have a separate toothbrush for this, it was recommended and it was only 99p from Superdrug.

Activated charcoal whitening powder £9.95

Final words:

Finally, I’ve come to the end of another blog, hopefully, this is informative and it literally shows it’s not that expensive to have the best makeup or to look after your skin, beauty bay & fragrance direct are honestly my plugs for everything, please I even have beauty bay on WhatsApp so when anything drops I know about it straight away, if you find yourself obsessively ordering from beauty bay then get an account and join TRIBE for discounts and save points then use them to purchase something that tickles your fancy.

Every month I say I’m going to stop building my makeup so I can focus on other things that I want which I will but it’s so hard because I want everything on THAT FUCKING WEBSITE, do you see my problem? Real talk though 1/3/19 I’m going to stop buying makeup so I can refocus on buying shoes and clothes, this summer I wanna be on dRiP. 

Might even do a makeup giveaway soon.

I hope everyone that asks me questions day in day out finally has their answers to how I shop!

Any other questions, feel free to comment below or message me on either one of my platforms.

Until next time

UNIVERSITY: OUTSIDERS VIEW IN

university_students_mental_health

Finally I’ve decided to end the fraudulent university lifestyle that I’ve perceived for nearly a year now but I really started joining the game of it a few months ago, a lot of people I’ve spoken to ready decided within themselves that I went to university honestly I never knew where people came up with that, so random honestly, sometimes I’d get random messages of being in certain locations Leicester came up a lot along with Coventry and Bedfordshire, I’ve been to Coventry once, Leicester never been there and Bedfordshire once also Hull, it really got to a point where I thought ‘fuck it, if that’s what you want to think let me play along as well’ What’s the university I decided to perceive? Of course, it was Leicester I came up with a made up course called ‘Bodycount Management’ along with a real course called ‘Computer Science’ Let me tell you now a lot of you lot believed it, but how? I’ve never posted me going to lectures or me being in a library, it’s the tweets and snapchats that got a lot of people and for a while I’d think I’m actually a student got myself back onto UNIDAYS, but this whole time I’d be working and living in a town and city! Life has been great!

University, the good, bad and damn right stressful…but what do I know I’m just an outsider right?

*Disclaimer*

I did a poll on this blog to receive answers but silly old me didn’t screenshot in time and the replies got lost in my mentions, I tried for a good day to scroll through my mentions but they stopped at a certain point, so I’m going to do this blog in a different way!

If you don’t know me from the TL, every time I do a blog I do a poll to go with it, it’s so I can interact with people and find out their views and opinions, a lot of the views I get are extremely interesting.

I always start of my polls with the first question being ‘where is everyone from?’ And do 4 options for the vote and do ‘Quote tweet others’ so people can pinpoint exactly where they’re from.img_2159

Okay, let’s get into it then!

I stated the 4 universities in a poll, that I generally hear about most and where a lot of the people I know attend & also where most of the fuckery happens NN2 (Northampton) you’re also up there with these 4, I’ll never forget about you lot.

img_2160.jpg

The one thing I’ve noticed with a majority people living in halls, some of you live like actual tramps, and you bring that same wayward dirty behaviour to when you move into a house with your mates! Do you not have any shame? I’ve been to university accommodation *Brunel University* to be exact and the communal kitchen was filthy like it would be a rodents best friend to live in.

The mindset some of you have to live in your own dirt, yuck!

Even the cheek to invite people to your accommodation looking like a dump site

img_2182

ACS should be called ‘AS’ because really no Caribbean people are involved that much, correct me if I’m wrong but it has more Africans, even  ACS is very dumb, that one debate on the twitter TL where a white girl decided to run for ACS president, it was actually the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard, how and why would you want to get involved in something that has nothing to do with your race.

img_2176

This one gets to me a lot, for someone that doesn’t go to university this is my pet hate, I know there are fire drills for testing I understand that but some of you wayward people can’t cook and are setting off the alarm for burning common toast, not being funny but how do you burn toast? How can you forget about your pizza in the oven? How can you burn rice? Oh yeah, you’re not a serious weed smoker if you don’t know how to put a sock over your smoke alarm if you can’t do it successfully go and sit next to a window and smoke or better yet, get the hell up and stand outside.img_2188

Personally, I feel 9k for a university is a bit of a stretch, I feel it should be free but with Theresa May in charge and the current state of the UK, I feel we’ll never get that. The fact your university fees cover lectures, where you are practically reading from a powerpoint which is probably 20 years old, used over and over again per year is ridiculous, paying for ‘contact hours’ where you can reach your lecturer is rather bizarre, you’re practically paying for a university library absolute nonsense, deep this you’re paying for student services, the same student services that love to sweep issues under the carpet.

img_2167

I really needed to ask this question as when I’m on Twitter mostly I always see complaints on group work, back in school I was one of the people that will let one person do the work while I sit back and relax, but in university, I’m guessing it’s highly frustrating and from the votes it proves a high majority of you don’t like it, you 2% that said yes, you must be lying, you other 30% you are definitely the ones who sit back and do nothing.

img_2174

The outcome of this vote left me so surprised, all I hear people rattle on about is Lidl or Aldi, the fact that Tesco came out on top is laughable, the same Tesco that sold horse meat that is where you want to go and fill your baskets. To be fair I shop everywhere but mostly Costco, however, I prefer Aldi & Lidl as they’re so cheap as a student I’m guessing you wouldn’t want to spend £50+ on food as things can go off very quickly as none of what we buy is even natural produce anymore. Fruit and Vegetables are twice their sizes always being injected with some sort of formula so they’re more than likely to go off twice as quick.

img_2185

The statistics to this one didn’t really surprise me, I’ve had friends where the family would have input in the course they choose, which I will never understand because at the end of the day they can put all the input they like in, but who is completing the course it will be YOU! You will be studying, dealing with the stress, graduating and of course going into the particular field, why would you let your parents choose a course for you which they will not be participating in? Sorry but I wouldn’t attend let alone apply for the university if my parents would’ve picked a course, for example, if my father picked my course I’d be doing ‘Music Management’ or anything to do with music, my mum, on the other hand, I can’t even give an example, because she certainly wouldn’t tell me, as far as I’m concerned I’d turn off, Imagine going to university between 3-6 years on a decision that isn’t yours, no thanks!

img_2164

Wasn’t surprised at this result at all, I don’t even go university but I get stressed by keeping up the persona that I attend, besides from that I couldn’t imagine what you university students must go through, the revision, assignments and most importantly the exams (If you have any) but a lot of you end up doing so well coming out with 2:1 or even better 1st’s.

“Your positive action, combined with positive thinking results in success” 

Shiv Khera

img_2166

Surprise Surprise! Honestly, there was no surprise here because the result I wanted to win did, whenever I check snap stories I always see ‘fUcK lEcTuReS’ or ‘fUcK 9ams’ Sometimes I don’t understand lectures that much, you’re literally sat down for hours looking at a powerpoint from 1956 with a tutor doing up voiceover.

img_2168

First of all, if you’re between 20/30% how are you still a student because I swear you can get kicked off your course for low attendance? Anyways what’s my own

img_2187

Whoever said ‘everyday’ someone has to be lying because I want to know what club is open every day for raves, who even has the time to do up ‘move your waistline’ every day of the week, 1/2 sounds more reasonable.

img_2193

The end is near, well from this blog, this topic was meant to be 100 times better than what I’ve just written but sometimes work with the resources and content you have, I received some interesting replies from this and if I ever find them again (Very much doubt it) I shall add them in.

For those of you who attend universityplease continue to prosper and persevere, if you’ve just started the end seems so far away yet once the first year finishes you really don’t have a lot of time left unless you plan to stay there for 4 years +, honestly the saying ‘time flies’ I never believed it till I reached 20. If you’ve made a solid friendship group they’ll always be around, but assignments and exams are vital for you to get where you want, and of course sleep and food use your student finance money wisely, I see they don’t dish out money easily in this England, I believe that everyone that goes to university can and will be successful in life if they focus on what they want!

For those of you who are planning to go university, continue to work hard, work for your grades, nothing in life comes easy and a university will only get harder but the results you’ll see at the end will amaze you, hopefully, this blog can be a small learning curve for you.

I’ve had to add my dry banter into this since I lost everything and I had no energy nor time to do another question thread part 2.

PHYSICAL & MENTAL HEALTH

Over half a million people a year make the transition to student life, for some students, it could be exciting but others it can also be incredibly daunting, universities say they have a lot of student support in place but I think that can and should be strengthened with more mental health services and wellbeing programs installed within the university, half a million people spread out between the UK can you imagine how many people can be affected from previous issues and new ones, I don’t think enough help is given. With higher study costs and career markets getting extremely competitive there is a whole lot of pressure. An annual student report from September 2017 showed that 87% of students struggled with social or academic aspects while at university, other issues that were highlighted was isolation, balancing work, financial difficulties and living independently.

Personally, I think a lot more services should be available on campus, living on campus their should be people to call at any time of the day.

This is where I come in, I’m not student support I’m really just Teeks, but I’m available a fair amount of my day despite me working, but any problems and you feel like you want someone to talk to (text only) I’ll try my best to help (07925672594) 

*Disclaimer* This isn’t my main number, any abuse I will straight block your number

img_2196

Okay now let me wrap this up, this university experience has been immense been at work or in my house for the past year and a half, thank you to all the fakes that said they’ve seen me in Luton or Leicester I did not appreciate that at all! Bodycount management is a fantastic course, highly recommend it, it’s only available at DMU (Obviously) This university persona has been fun but I think I’m finished with it now.
