So I'm back at college after half term and I feel like I haven't had a break and not really accomplished much which is never a good sign. Because of this, I've decided to take a week or maybe two off blogging to have a bit of 'me' time and I know that you probably need some too! While the following things I probably won't get round to myself over my little break as I till have tons of college work which I can't choose not to do, I'm hoping that you might take some inspiration and have a little break from what you're doing.


For me it's reading. Having an acoustic playlist playing while I read a good book is what I love most. This is one thing I will make time for no matter how busy I am. Even if it's a book I'm having to read for English, I will make sure I'm relaxed and doing what I love. My kindle's been great for this as it's much easier to read a little bit before bed and the red tint to the screen option means I'll have no trouble getting to sleep after. 


I've done a whole post on pampering which you can have a look at for certain products. Pampering yourself is the best way to spend your down time. Put on a face mask, light a bunch of candles, get in your favourite PJs, grab a hot water bottle if you're always cold like I am and relax with your favourite Netflix show (I recommend Shadow Hunters!). 


You don't need to be the next Picasso to enjoy a bit of art. I've sadly not had much time to think about art since leaving high school but it's something I really enjoy doing when I have a moment and it's so relaxing. If you're not the best drawer, you've seen the latest colour book trend- there's some great ones and it's less messy than cracking the paints out before bed. 

This is just a quick post but I hope you liked it never the less. How do you spend your 'me' time. I'd love to know. I hope you don't mind me taking a week off; I think I just need to focus on college for a little while I get back into the swing of things. I'll still by on twitter and if you need some other blogs to read check out @alt_bloggers where we retweet some great posts that I know you'll love.

Hope you're doing great,
