University Regrets - How To Get The Most Out Of University

university of Leeds graduation

Whether you’re starting University, going back to University or like me, you’re done with University *sob* (low key thought about applying to do a masters in New York recently purely so I can move there but that’s another story for another day HA). I’ve done a few of these University posts over the years including the motivation for deadlines/essays at University, how to get the most out of University and my most recent, everything about the University experience and even a video called the things they don’t tell you about University but hopefully this reflective post about my time at University, after graduating will help you get the most out of your time at University or maybe it’ll just bring back memories of your time there. I feel like every time Facebook gives me Timehop reminders of my time at Uni I come up with more regrets or happy memories of University so hopefully this blog post will help you. This year for the first time ever I genuinely feel emotional about it all being over.

I saw the recipe for egg, banana and baking soda pancakes on Instagram and knew immediately I needed to make this recipe work for me. I consider myself fully influenced haha and I love anything tasty, healthy but easy too. I hate faffing and weighing things out and prefer to quickly throw things in and then eat. I love sharing my healthy recipes (my healthy banana bread recipe is the latest) and I know you guys love my original healthy easy vegan pancake recipe but thought today I’d blog the perfected egg, banana and baking soda pancake recipe. Apologies this pancake recipe isn’t vegan as it uses eggs but it’s a quick and easy pancake recipe and once you’ve got the knack it’s super tasty. I'm also aware it isn't the prettiest BUT they taste nice.

Vitamin C in skincare has been discussed a lot over the last few years, with people wondering what the benefits of vitamin C in skincare actually are and wondering if you need to add vitamin C to your skincare routine and if you do, how should you add vitamin C into your skincare routine? The first vitamin C skincare product I used was by Kiehl's (the Kiehl's Vitamin C powerful strength line reducing concentrate) and to be honest, I didn't really understand what vitamin C was or why I was putting it on my face. I then started using a gentle, day cream, with a lower % of vitamin C by Beautypie (the Superdose Vitamin C Oxygen Boosting Moisturiser) which actually really gets on with my skin. That's as far as my vitamin C trials have gone, so you could say I have dipped my toes into the water. I heard a skincare expert say that at my age (teens and twenties) I should be wearing Vitamin C every single day and also take that into my 30's (as well as SPF but that's another blog post topic) so since then, I've made it my mission to get vitamin C onto my face and add it into my skincare routine. On todays blog post I'm going to be discussing the brand new Elizabeth Arden Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules which may just take my Vitamin C skincare to the next level and I guess look into the benefits of using Vitamin C in your skincare routine. Get comfy, it's time for a review of Elizabeth Arden's Vitamin C Capsules.
