How to Survive A Deadline

How To Survive a Deadline Motivation Productivity Tools for University Students

Hey Owlets,

If you’ve been a long time follower of my blog, you’ll know that I went from happy to miserable to happy again in the time that I’ve been documenting my life online. One of the biggest things I’ve learnt is how to look after my mental health. When I was younger I had a tendency to run myself into the ground when I had a lot of things on my to do list and I’d end up a stressed out mess that got nothing done. Since deadline season is coming up, I wanted to share some tips with you on how to stay mentally healthy when you’ve got a lot to do.

Follow Me To Spain in Wales: April Feria

Spanish Festivals Tramshed Cardiff Wales UK Arpil Feria Travel Blogger

Hey Owlets!

I don’t think I’ve done a “Follow Me To” post since I went to France in January, but the rain is getting warmer and my schedule is filling up so we must be getting towards summer! Today I wanted to take you to an event that I’ve never actually been to before.

Getting Organised: National Stationery Week

How To Get and Stay Organised At Work Productivity Tips National Stationery Week

Hey Owlets,

If you’ve been following me for a while then you’ll know that I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with stationery - for me I need to feel like my life is organised before I actually do anything (I know, that makes no sense but I promise it works). So this is actually my perfect week - it’s national stationery week! Every day has a different theme and I tend to have stationery but not know what to do with it, so I wanted to share a couple of tips I’ve found this week.

Restaurant Review: Don Diego, Birmingham

Best Restaurant in Birmingham Edgbaston Spanish Food Don Diego Review

Hey Owlets,

It's official - I'm an honorary Brummie now!! Well okay, maybe not, but a few weeks ago I managed to leave the comfort of Brum city centre, catch a bus alone, made it out to a suburb AND survived unscathed. I do love a good restaurant find, but I am very much guilty of staying within the safety net of the centre, so when I was invited for a girly blogger date at Don Diego in Edgbaston, I was a little nervous about getting there without the aid of a car or Uber, but it was surprisingly easy and well worth the trip.

Creating My Bespoke Fragrance: Review

Perfume Studio Bespoke Perfume London UK Make Your Own Scent Review The Owlet Blog

Hey Owlets,

These days it’s rare I bring you a straight review of a product, but when I find something I think is really cool I just have to share. I don’t know what’s happened but over the last few years I’ve gone from never wearing perfume or getting something *interesting* in a bright blue Avon bottle, to having different scents for different occasions, keeping an eye on new releases and loving trying new scents. I’ve written a whole post about my favourite spring scents, and I’ve gotten close to “the one” fragrance, but it’s never been perfect - so why not mix my own?

Las Iguanas Relaunch Review: Bristol

Las Iguanas Bristol Millennium Square Review New Spring Menu Refurbishment

Hey Owlets,

I feel like I've been bombarding you with food a little recently so apologies! Maybe it's the time of year but I seem to have been given the chance to eat in a lot of lovely places recently, so I thought I would share one of those with you today. You may remember that I visited Las Iguanas on Temple Street in Birmingham last year, and I wasn't overly impressed, so when I was invited to the relaunch of the Bristol branch, I wasn't sure what to expect. Having just been refurbished, it opened with a new menu for the spring/summer season which I was really excited to try.

Museum Review: Being Brunel at SS Great Britain

Being Brunel Exhibition SS Great Britain Bristol Harbourside Travel Blogger

Hey Owlets,

If you're from Bristol then you've probably heard that SS Great Britain (here's a review of the ship if you've not already visited!) has been building a new museum next to the ship. Named "Being Brunel" the museum lets people walk through his life, see where he lived and worked and everything that he created, and a few weeks ago I was invited to take a look on launch day.

I'll freely admit that me and museums don't perhaps go that well together. I have the attention span of a goldfish and that doesn't allow time to stop and read every sign and admire the finest details of an exhibit and I mainly accepted the invitation because I knew that Dad really wanted to take a look around. However, when Brunel himself shook my hand and welcomed me to his museum, I started to think I might enjoy this one (also, I think I wore the top hat with more flare!).

The Best Apps for Bloggers

Best Iphone and Android Apps for Bloggers Productivity Photo Editing Social Media

Hey Owlets,

These days you seem to be 50/50 bloggers and “normal people”, so apologies to the people who live their lives offline, as this is going to be another blogging related post. However, if you love social media (which I’m assuming you do, as you’re here), have a read and you might find something you love! When you decide to start a blog, no one seems to mention how much hard work it is and you can’t always afford to invest in smaller things like apps right away - but fear not, as there are a huge variety of apps to help you along the way, and today we’re running through my top 10.
