Rounding up another month – thank you for being amazing April!
In the past, I never really appreciated Easter weekend as much because as a student I would get 3 weeks off where I had much more flexibility with my time.
…I see you facepalming through the screen. Today I’ll be talking about part 2 of my Euro trip to Southern France with my best friend, Hamdah.
Sometime in November, I remember feeling bored with my current everyday life – not necessarily in a negative way – I was craving to do something somewhere that wasn’t in Sheffield. Last year one of my new year resolutions was to travel more.
At the start of March, I couldn’t believe how quickly February went by but March has definitely been the quickest month this year! I’ve not blogged as much as I would have liked to (I had planned once every week) because I was all over the place (literally) but now I have so much I […]
I always want to blog events in my life as they happen but being such a perfectionist, I find it a challenge. Also juggling what I post on social media about events in addition to writing a post about said event seems a lot to handle at once. I’ve been involved in a lot of social […]
Last night, I attended the International Cultural Evening, it was pretty cool. The International Cultural Evening (ICE) is an annually organized show which features multicultural performances. I enjoyed the competitive edge to the show – the energy the different societies (representing different cultures) was amazing and contagious too. I naturally have a lot of energy […]
The end of the month is always a great opportunity for reflection. February has especially been a great month for reflecting – it’s been so exciting packed with lots of key events that brought amazing new experiences! With some changes in my life right now, I’ve also had the opportunity to find more about myself and found […]
Yesterday I attended my first conference (outside of my placement!!) on a topic that is so important to me: women working towards a career in an STEM-related industry, more specifically, in tech. I’ve talked about this topic a lot on my blog including past stories and experiences – you can read up here if you’re […]

I’ve been pretty loud on social media about this, so you probably already know but I have to share the exciting first week of February with you. Besides being extremely busy at work with the new semester starting tomorrow, Code First: Girls (CF:G) courses started this week. I’ve written about CF:G in the past, including when […]
What a crazzzzzzzy month! Looking back, I’m happy with how my year has started. In fact, I’m feeling the most positive (wait, this is possible?!) and happiest I have ever been in the last few months. Very thankful for the love, patience, and kindness everyone has shown me. And the amazing opportunities I’ve been blessed with! MAIN […]
Over the past week, I’ve cheated a little bit with my clean eating streak and treated myself (and was treated) to a bunch of awesome places to eat (with equally amazing company!) Whenever I plan to go out and eat out with friends or not, I naturally sway towards Italian food but I’m glad I […]
After reading Chynna’s series of letters to herself, Georgie’s recent letter to her 18-year-old self and laughing at all tweets from the hashtag #WhatIWouldTellMy15YearOldMe this morning, I was inspired to write a letter to 16-year-old Pauline. 16-year-old me would’ve finished GCSEs and going onto A Levels at this point (I think) and would be in the midst of a toxic relationship. […]
Being sick wasn’t the way I wanted to start my New Year. I had to take a few days off work but thankfully, my flu has now almost completely gone! The good thing that came out of being sick was that I got talking to a few of old friends who I went to primary school with.
Happy new year!! Before we dive straight into 2017, I wanted to share my accomplished goals and my plans for the year ahead. If you’re interested, I also wrote a post on the top 5 lessons I’ve learned from 2016. 2016 “resolutions” I achieved: I joined Zumba again and although I don’t attend the classes regularly it has helped […]
The last month of the year is already coming to it’s end – how weird. I say this every year but it’s just crazy how life passes by so quickly – which is why we should always strive to do things that make us happy and be with people who make us happy!
With 2016 quickly coming to an end, I wanted to share five life lessons I learnt in 2016. 1. My free time is worth a lot more than a purposeless feed As a student, I often had (a lot more than I’d like to admit) lazy days where I’d just aimlessly waste my time away […]
Hi, I’m Pauline! Folks also call me Paw and some send me emails with my name spelt Pawlean which I find awesome. I’ve been compared to the big ol’ powerhouse of the cell before because of my constant energy. This energy is mostly gained from the golden hour I dedicate to myself every morning where […]
With only one week of work left, I’m feeling pretty Christmasy! Seeing most of my friends travelling back home is a little strange to me. Usually, by this time I would’ve finished my last lecture, planned out my revision for the intense January exam period and gone to my retail job to help out with […]
*Title reference to one of my favourite electro swing songs right now. Does anyone else feel incredibly happy when a certain genre pops up? For me, electro swing is one of those genres! Some of my all time favourite electro swing songs include Dramophone – Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar – The Mojo Radio Gang. Have a […]
Hello, December! I can’t believe it’s already the final month of 2016. This year has been an aggressive roller coaster ride, but despite the difficulties I’ve faced, I’m determined to finish the year with the biggest smile on my face and a positive reflection of what I’ve achieved this year! Let’s take a quick look […]
The past week has been pretty busy as usual despite my two days off, I had a lot of social commitments and although they were very fun, it’s always great getting back to my room and catching up with my personal tasks and goals. On Tuesday I spent my evening with the weekly Code First:Girls […]
I haven’t been able to blog for the last week (or two now?) because my Macbook decided to die on me. Honestly, I was shocked more than upset when it wouldn’t switch on despite having full battery and having the cable in because compared to my previous laptop (a Toshiba) my Macbook was amazing – […]
I usually don’t do anything for Bonfire Night. I never have really. The last time I really hyped up about Bonfire Night was when I was in primary school and we sang songs, read history and poems about the fireworks. At my old house, we lived up a hill (one of the many hills in Sheffield) […]
October was the month where I saw a lot of progress in my fitness journey, became busier at work and connected with some great people professionally and outside of work. It’s also gotten colder, as many of you have probably seen from my many tweets about the weather – I can’t help it; it won’t be very […]
As many of you probably know from following me on my various social media accounts and from previous blog posts, lately I’ve been obsessed with fitness. Some friends have joked that I’ve hit a phase that will go away soon, but I like to think of this to be more of a lifestyle change which […]
As always, my week as an intern at the University has flown by! I’ve been especially busy last week mainly because of various networking events I was invited to, lecture briefings I had to assist with delivering and initiating action on projects I’m leading. I’m still in disbelief that I’ve been on placement for 8 weeks […]
Timeless Thoughts is a monthly link up hosted by Georgie and Tara, where bloggers write about something from their past – it could be an item, a place, an event – anything that evokes a trip down memory lane. Timeless Thoughts is held on the first Saturday of the month, and runs for two weeks. […]
Writing up my second-round up post feels unreal, I can’t believe how quick September went by! September always tends to be quite fast-paced for me as a student and now, a member of staff at University because on both sides of the spectrum it’s always busy with preparation for the new term. Despite being busy […]
This post is a little late because it has been crazy since September started. Work has been getting much busier due to the start of a new exciting term at University. If I hadn’t taken a year out for my placement, I would be in my final year. Seeing all the new students over the […]
How great is tech right now? I’m so happy to be living in a time where apps can help make things in everyday life much easier. I was reminded how great technology is from my busy week interning. Last week, I had the opportunity to attend an innovative conference, generate very forward ideas with other […]
This is the first time I’ll be writing a round-up post, I usually jump into the next month without reflecting on what I did the month before but I wanted to change that for August.
For the first time in two years, I managed to have a bank holiday weekend off, which means no work, no deadlines, no nothing and let me tell you, it’s so refreshing! A lot has happened over the past 3 days but I’m going to highlight the 3 main things; I tried to utilize as […]
So August has started off very exciting and very busy – just how I like it! There have been a number of big changes in my life since I last blogged ranging from personal changes to more exciting and positive opportunities – today I’ll be sharing an adventure I have just begun: starting my placement and becoming an […]
My holiday blues have yet to disappear but looking at photos of it has helped make the transition to grey weather better. Prior to going on holiday, I spent a reasonable amount of time shopping for holiday clothes. Since my wardrobe consists mainly of Autumn/Winter clothes (because let’s face it, UK weather will never get better) […]
Hola! If you follow me on any of my social media profiles, you’ll know that I’ve been on a week trip to Spain. I’m (sadly) back in England now, with an uneven tan and beach blues. Although my dad is Spanish, I’ve not had many Spanish influences in my culture growing up so it was interesting […]

I just keep my head down, run hard and am always surprised when I look up and see where I am. – Grant In my (only) post back in January, I outlined some of the goals I wanted to achieve for the year. I used the new year to push myself to tick off as many goals as I could. […]
Tweeting on Monday, “This week is the week” I hadn’t realised that it was going to turn upside down real fast. Travel-wise, anyway. It all started on Tuesday, I was planning to meet a friend and wanted to take some pictures for the day, so I went to get my camera where I usually put in a drawer […]
The majority of us use Google Keep, notes, to-do list apps on our phones to help us keep productive. Why? Because it’s obviously so much easier to type things on our phones, tablets and laptops/computers. I’ve been using Google Keep and Calendars to keep track of everything in my life from shopping lists, events, to-do […]
During university, it was often quite easy for me to lose track of myself, because of the continuous heavy University and/or work-related tasks that I needed to complete to for a certain deadline. My second year at university really overwhelmed me, to say the least. I found myself juggling so many tasks to the point of mental and physical exhaustion all […]
Today I turn 20. Well… to be more precise I turn 20 at 11:15 pm tonight which actually means my birthday is only 45 minutes on the 24th of June every year. I don’t feel any different. When I was younger I used to think that going into 20, I’d have my whole life together and […]
Today I’m participating in Georgie’s monthly link-up “A Day in My Life” – be sure to join, I’m always curious about how other people spend their day! I haven’t been up to much; I spent most of it resting, getting through my to-watch list (today I watched Monster’s University, yes I’m very late but 100% […]
Following my previous blog, I’ve been trying to keep myself as busy as possible and away from indoors, my room and laptop. I have to say this was a success because since then I’ve been working, hanging out with friends and finding more beautiful places in my city. A few days ago, I planned to […]
Yesterday I sat my last exam in Anatomy and then just like that – my second year of university was over. My summer exams turned out easier than I thought, don’t get me wrong though, I still found it difficult but it wasn’t as bad as I imagined. Fingers crossed with the results in exactly a […]
Apologies for the lack of posts recently, it has just been over a month since my last one but, I have an excuse which all student bloggers will all feel me on: it’s exam session. How am I? Still alive but I’m barely breathing. I finish my second year of university 4 weeks – a part […]
My second day in London involved eating the best sushi I’ve ever had, admiring London even more from a skyscraper and covering the final places I had on my list. You can read about my first day in London here. A morning in Archway I was actually pretty anxious that morning, because I was expecting […]
I’ve had the busiest week ever. And I loved it. This week I managed to complete one of my year goals of leaving my city to visit at least 2 other places in England. As you may know, I decided to stay in my city of 8 years for university so unlike others, I didn’t […]
If you follow me on my social media profiles, you probably know that over the past week, I’ve had a wonderful opportunity to work with the leading creative marketing business – Diva Creative.

“If ever I’m in a scene where I have to cry, I cut a hole in my pocket, take a pair of tweezers and just start pulling.” – Joey Tribbiani ** (The One With The Race Car Bed) Back in 2013, filming of the movie “X+Y” was happening in my hometown. At my school’s common room were […]
“myoSINcerely” is part of a science-led series where I talk about cool science stuff and relate it to situations or experiences I’ve been in. Maybe you’ll learn something you didn’t before, I know writing posts for this series always teaches me cool things! 😉 “Y’know I have a torn rotator cuff, a hairline fracture in […]
Most people already know this but I love project work. There’s something about having a team with differing specialties, all with great ideas, managing everyone to their ability and working together towards a set target that really makes me have an optimistic mindset for team-based work. So, my first project for this semester was […]
In my last post, I introduced a monthly blog post – < STYLE > – I will be trying to do in order to blog more frequently, today I’ll be introducing another one I’ve named: “myoSINcerely, P.” For those who don’t understand the name, let me explain! Myosin is a protein in muscles that allow […]
< STYLE > It’s been a very long two months of hardcore revision, exam stress and breakdowns but today finally marks the end of my first semester exams! I went to celebrate with an Asian-style buffet and will reward myself later with sleeping in tomorrow until 9 pm. Ah, the three days of freedom (until semester […]
The new year is upon us! Happy New Year to all my new and old readers, I hope you’ve all stuffed yourself with food and had lots of fun over the holiday season. Unlike most years, I didn’t stay up to midnight like I usually do and that’s because of the lack of sleep the […]
The current theme is: Addition by Subtraction which is one of my favourite quotes from the book, “Everything that Remains” by The Minimalists. The aim of this theme was to reflect my more minimal approach to life and to focus on the content of each blog posts. Designed on the Twitter Bootstrap framework and went […]
If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw a rather angry tweet about my recent visit at my local Boots Opticians. My mom recently got back home from a visit from The Philippines and found that there is a hereditary history of glaucoma on my mom’s side of the family. For those who don’t know, Glaucoma […]
Happy holidays fellow bloggers! I hope you all enjoy time with loved ones whilst eating lots of yummy Christmas food! I have to say, despite dressing up all festive for work, listening to the same Christmas playlist on repeat and having to post christmasy instagram shots – I have never felt less festive in my […]
As I’ve said on my previous post back in October, there is a Christmas market every year in the city centre in my town. There was also a Christmas light switch on event (where everyone gathers to see some well-known person switch the lights on) which I usually watch every year but I didn’t get to […]
☁ Today, I’ve decided to do Georgie’s link up this month. Day in the Life is a monthly link up where bloggers document their daily life on a designated day each month to show what a typical day is like. Make sure to join in! I always love reading what people have been up to on a […]
It’s crazy how time goes by so quickly, I can hardly remember how this year started, the middle bits then next thing I know it’s already close to the end of the year. John Lewis has already released their next Christmas advert, which means it’s close to Christmas which in turn means, I need to […]
Wow, is all that I can say. It’s been such a crazy, information-packed last few weeks since I returned to university for my second year, I’ve been meaning to make some time for blogging but honestly, the workload has been so overwhelming. My schedule has been: lecture, labs, lecture, labs, study, study, study, remember to […]
I have to say, it was quite difficult to find 8 photos of happiness specifically because I have SO many photos I’ve been collecting over the years all with absolutely lovely memories attached to them. I’ve enjoyed looking for photos of this blog post and finding some videos too, I’d like to share those with […]
I’m not one who usually sleeps in during the mornings, I usually wake up and get up bright and early (or gloomy and cold if you’re in England!) before anyone else in my family. I’ve been described as a morning person because of how I always am every morning: cheery and overly-energetic (regardless of the […]
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
I usually am very busy during the week with my part time jobs and/or working on university-related things. But, I managed to have some time off this week and spent some quality time with my non-identical twin sister. Although it was a little chilly, we spent a lot of time in town shopping and just […]
Firstly, a big thank you to TC & Georgie for creating this blog column – it’s such a great way to go down memory lane with the blogging community! So for my very first entry of ‘Timeless Thoughts’ I’m starting off with my long love for Korean pop (K-pop) which I’ve been missing a lot […]
