LIFE LATELY #3 [FINISHING EXAMS, GRADUATION, SC PERFUME, ETC.]

Hey Everyone,
I hope you are all well!
It's been a while since I've posted an update, and I'm very happy to say that exams are over and I have about a month to party before graduation! :)

TIPS & TRICKS | THE SMART WAY TO SHOP ONLINE

Whether you're on a tight budget or live for a good deal (I'm going to have to raise both hands), online shopping ticks quite a few boxes. I love using coupon codes and deals when I checkout, because this means I often don't have to pay full price for anything!
I use Cuponation* to find and keep track of all the different coupons and fashion deals, including:
(Please note most of these are Australian offers, but most do ship internationally)

ASOS: Free express shipping on orders over $125 (Code: AUEXPRESS)
Bardot: Up to 50% off leather and knits
The Iconic: Up to 75% off dresses
A lot of stores and brands offer 10-15% student discounts as well, so keep your eyes peeled for them!
Are you a coupon code/online deals fanatic?

BEING CONFIDENT WITHOUT MAKE UP | #PROJECTBAREALL

#projectbareall is an initiative started by the gorgeous Megan at ThumbelinaLillie. After reading Emily's post, I was really inspired to spread this great idea. I'm still coming to terms with going out without make up, so I thought I'd share my experience and encourage a few of you to try it out too!

This is the first no make up and non-edited photo I've uploaded on social media for over two years
(Besides the occasional water polo selfie, where I'm usually wearing waterproof mascara)

MY EXAM PLAYLIST

Hey Everyone!

I'm sorry I haven't posted any content in a while, but I have been in the midst of studying/sitting for my most important internal school exams ever. I'm quite proud of myself for surviving the first week (still relatively happy and sane). I've only sat 4/7 exams, and I still have another week and a half to go, but I'm getting there!

Either way, I seriously rely on good music to get me through the treacherous studying. I thought I'd do a 2-in-1 and share my some of favourite songs, and chuck in a little study tip ;)


A couple of weeks ago, I read on Sjana's blog that repeating the same song in the background can create a sensory trigger for memory/information recollection. So, essentially, having your jam on repeat whilst studying can be helpful for absorbing, retaining and remembering that information. So I've been playing random songs on repeat when I feel like it, and in some ways, I think it has helped me concentrate on the task more than anything.

I created a playlist a week before my trial exams, allocating a song to an exam. I'd play that specific song whilst I was studying for that exam, and then the morning of the exam I'd do a little revision/meditate whilst playing the song to jog my memory. The play count is a really good indication of what subjects I have/haven't studied haha!
