Life Lately: Lush, New Starts and Bumble & Bee

Things have been a little bit quiet over on Essays & Wine the past month, but it's been a very busy month for me, if you've been following me on social media then you might have kept up with whats going on with me. I figured that you might have missed a few important life updates so it's time for a little Life Lately. You can check out my previous updates here.  

Finishing Uni 

I FINALLY finished Uni! It's taken me a bit longer than most people, but I finally handed in my dissertation and took my final exam and I am now done. It's been a hard year, but I've managed to get through it and I'm pretty proud of that. Now I'm no longer a student and I'm officially an unemployed adult. Time to get my life together I guess! 

Lush Milton Keynes 





I recently attended my first Milton Keynes blogger event at Lush. It was a really fun night and I got to meet some lovely fellow MK bloggers and also learn about some of the new Oxford Street exclusive products that have been rolled out into other stores. After a game of throw the jelly where we all introduced ourselves we split into groups and heard about the new bath products, face and body products and soaps. The experimenter (first photo) makes an amazingly colourful bath and i'm so excited to try that out when I need cheering up! 

I fell in love with so many products and picked up a few bits, as well as coming home with a little goodie bag. I'm hopefully going to be showing them in a haul soon (on youtube!) so look out for that. 

Essays and Wine

You will have most likely noticed that Writing Essays With Wine has had a little makeover and is now Essays and Wine. A new design, a sort of new name and to go along with that I hit 1000 followers on bloglovin! I'm so unbelievably happy, I can't believe my little blog has grown so much and I'm so proud of every little milestone I reach. I'm also in love with my new design, it's not exactly how I'd like it but that's just me being picky. 

Thank you to everyone that follows my blog, reads my posts and connects with me on social media, it means the world to me. You're all amazing. Heres to Essays and Wine growing even more! 

Bumble & Bee


Finally, let me introduce you to the newest members of my family, my baby girls; Bumble & Bee. These beautiful sisters are very tiny and very adorable. Bumble The Explorer is all black and very adventurous, she's under sofas, behind beds and always getting herself into mischief. Her little sister Princess Bee loves a bit of love, and likes being close, she naps pretty much constantly and wants to get her nose into any hot drink despite every effort to keep her away! They both love to climb all over my laptop, go crazy for chicken and have settled in amazingly. 

I'm so happy to have them and they really are my babies, when Bee meows at me it slightly breaks my heart that I don't know what she wants! However, kittens poop smells bad. I can't wait for them to be able to explore outside and poop in places I don't need to clear up! Bumble is very excited to explore the outdoors and has already attempted an escape out the back door! 

So my life has had some big changes recently. Im gradually getting back into the swing of blogging and hope to get back to schedule. I'd love to know what you've been up to recently, and please leave me links to your blogs because I really need a catch up! 

You can find me in all of these places:
