Hearing advice about the first day of school and how to stay on top of school work is useful, but after a while it gets repetitive! I'll admit, I shared my own back to school advice in a previous blog post, but I think this post will be useful to a lot more of you. We all know how to stay organized and prepare for the first day back at school, but sometimes we need a little more... I really don't like seeing the summer come to an end, and I always make an extra special effort to do things that I love in September to make the whole transition back to school (or back to work, for some of you) a little less sad. I do things like making sure I get an early night, lighting my best smelling candle, and listening to my favorite music while taking a bath (sometimes I even whip out the Christmas music to cheer myself up if I've had a really hard day). It's these little things that I do each day that I can look forward to after a draining day at school (I know that sounds a little dramatic, but school is hard!) that make the back to school season a little more bearable. That's why I want to encourage all of you to have one thing planned for each day this September that will make you happy - a little treat that you can look forward to at the end of each day.
Do you ever get those nights when you're lying awake in bed listing out all the things you have to get done tomorrow? When your head feels like it's going to burst with all the odd jobs and to-do lists kept in there? And when you know you have endless amounts of things to do, but you just can't bring yourself to actually do them?
I hope you all had an amazing summer, wherever you spent it! And I really hope you enjoyed reading about my summer adventures and reading all the content I created for you guys! With it being back to school season, I wanted to share some important pieces of advice for going into this school year. But... I thought it might be interesting to hear what other people have to say as well! I asked a few other bloggers/Instagrammers what their number one piece of advice for going back to school is, and I compiled them into one huge back to school advice guide! They all had great advice to share, and even as I was putting this guide together I found myself thinking, wow... I should do that this year! So I hope you find this guide as useful as I do!
When I first started this blog my mission was to support as many expats as possible with their moves, and give them some guidance and support to get them through this huge event in their lives. Only a couple of days ago when I was talking to a friend of mine who recently moved from Dubai to Paris, did I realise that I hadn't addressed a very important subject that related to moving and being an expat. And that is how to make new friends, and deal with just being the 'new girl/boy'.
I can't believe that January is already over, that went really quickly! This month has been a very busy one, with new years resolutions, starting school again, the end of one semester, and being well into the Cross Country Season. In this post, I'm going to share with you what products I've been using a lot this month, and what I'm loving. And I'll also share what's been going on in my life, and what's coming in February. I hope you enjoy!
