Be Bold For Change 🌺

March 11th 2017

A letter to my 16-year-old self

January 14th 2017

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.

Timeless Thoughts: Rounders

January 7th 2017

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.

Fixer Upper

December 18th 2016

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.

Whirlwind

November 20th 2016

I haven’t been able to blog for the last week (or two now?) because my Macbook decided to die on me.

Remember the 5th of November

November 13th 2016

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, For Me

November 5th 2016

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.

Incorporating fitness into my life

October 22nd 2016

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 […]


Checkpoint #2:
Presentations & Projects

October 16th 2016

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: my grey console

October 8th 2016

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. […]


September, For Me

October 2nd 2016

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 […]


Exploring England:
Loughborough & Nottingham

September 24th 2016

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 […]


Pauline’s Pavourites: Apps

September 10th 2016

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 […]


August, For Me

September 4th 2016

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.


a long weekend

August 29th 2016

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 […]


Checkpoint #1: START

August 19th 2016

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 […]


Vestirse in España

August 7th 2016

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) […]


Experiencing España

July 28th 2016

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 […]

Life Updated: Almost There

July 12th 2016

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. […]


An unexpected trip

July 7th 2016

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 […]


Increasing my productivity with Bullet Journals

July 4th 2016

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 […]


☁️ Practicing Mindfulness

June 28th 2016

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 […]


Turning 20

June 24th 2016

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 […]


A Day in the Life: June 2016

June 21st 2016

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% […]


Weekly overview:
Where has summer gone?

June 14th 2016

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 […]


2 out of 3

June 8th 2016

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 […]


I’ve not failed.
I’ve just found ways that won’t work.

May 21st 2016

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 […]


From underground to uptown
-60m to 200m

April 18th 2016

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 […]


The walk down South Bank

April 8th 2016

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 […]


My time as a Creative Diva

Known for the innovative creations that help drive social change, they thrive to make a difference to lives and communities in the most […]


The One with The Movie

March 25th 2016

“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 […]


If you want to talk to someone, don’t talk to me.

March 20th 2016

“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 […]


Languages: Code

March 15th 2016

  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 […]


What’s your superpower?

February 14th 2016

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 […]


Wardrobe update must-haves

February 4th 2016

< 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 […]


A Lifetime of Adventures

January 1st 2016

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 […]


Theme

December 31st 2015

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 […]


Eye see a problem

December 29th 2015

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 […]


Using the force to obtain the Christmas spirit

December 24th 2015

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 […]


Water Under The Bridge

November 29th 2015

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 […]


A Day in The Life: Every November

November 12th 2015

Out on the verge

November 6th 2015

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 […]


Just up to my clavicle

October 11th 2015

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 […]


Eight Photos of Happiness

September 23rd 2015

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 […]


My go-to products

September 19th 2015

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 […]

Always covalently bonded

September 11th 2015

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 […]


Timeless Thoughts: Korean pop

September 9th 2015

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 […]


The Versatile Blogger Award

September 7th 2015

A big thank you to my lovely long-time blogging buddy Chynna for nominating me for the versatile blogger award! It does mean a lot to be tagged and nominated in these kinds of things and I really do enjoy joining in. It’s such a great thing to join in as I feel like it helps recognise […]


Goals & plans

September 3rd 2015

With the new academic year just around the corner for university students (and school starting for younger students), I decided to write this post about my personal goals and plans for my next university year. I feel like writing about it, would really help motivate me to keep my mind straight on what I really want […]


Learning to cook! (properly)

August 31st 2015

I’m a terrible cook. To redeem myself (sort of), I can bake (sort of) but cooking actual meals are a big no! When I do try to, it usually (almost always) turns out burnt and inedible or sometimes is just a mix of everything together to make a big lump of … smoosh. One of […]


York + OOTD

August 25th 2015

So today’s my very first fashion-related blog post (a little excited!) Over the weekend, my family spontaneously went to York for a nice relaxing shopping trip – let me tell you; we needed it! Over the last few weeks, my family have had a busy schedule and there was no point in time that everyone was together so […]


The princess in the oasis

August 22nd 2015

After my first year at university, I gave myself a goal to get back into reading books. I admit, the last books I properly read was my A Level books, sad but true #studentlife. So that I did, for the first few weeks, I started reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline! I often find myself […]


Livewire

August 19th 2015

So… this is sort of nostalgic! I haven’t written a blog post since like 2008/2009/2010. It’s been such a long time, it feels so strange that I’m going back into this world I literally grew up in! I have certainly grown and matured (I hope so) since my last blogs from years ago. For those […]
