When dreams come true…

As many of you know I was nominated for four awards – Best News Story, Best Feature, Best Reporter and Outstanding Commitment for the Student Publication Association awards. I was shortlisted for two: Best Reporter and Outstanding Commitment back in April this year. The website I edit – SR News, a news and current affairs website based […]

Old and New Makeup Haul

Woah, it’s been a long time since I last blogged – over three months. University has been super busy, so I’ve been focusing a lot on that, as always. But I’m back and I’m going to be focusing more on fashion and beauty posts because that’s what I enjoy! (It may mean a whole new blog, I haven’t decided […]

Ask Sophie Q&A: The Answers.

Freshers week has begun – that means new first year students; and it also means that I’m 8 days away from starting the second year of my degree (eek!). But really it means it’s time to answer the questions about university that I’ve had over the past few months.

Summer Book Haul.

I’ve been stuck in the house for a number of days now because of migraines. Ouch! So yesterday I decided to head into town to pick up a few things. And as usual I came back with a lot of new things. But this time, it wasn’t just makeup, I bought some new books too. It’s always great to go into a book […]
