5 Things // April Edition

That time of the month has rolled round once more, where I share with you all my top 5 moments of the month. If you want to see what my top 5 of previous months have been, you can see all my “5 Things” posts here.  But for now, without further ado, here are my 5 Things from April:


1.  Really started to enjoy blogging again.

I’ve published 10 (11 now!) posts this April which is actually quite a lot for me! I’ve been feeling really inspired recently and have genuinely loved writing my thoughts down online. I feel like May won’t be as blogging filled, as my final year dissertation is due in, but I’m hoping to schedule a few posts in! Although saying that, I think I’m going to do a blogger > wordpress migration soon and change the layout of my blog a bit, which excites me! I’ve also decided to save up for a nice camera, but in the mean time, I can still take fairly good pics on my phone!
I don’t know why this month I suddenly started to blog loads more, but i’m not mad about it.

2. I got to get all dressed up and go to a fancy ball.


Earlier in the month, I attended “The Broadway Ball” which was in The Grand Hotel in Brighton, and it was so lovely! The ball was set up by the performing arts societies at my Uni, and obviously where I’ve been a part of the Musical Theatre Society this year, I was able to attend.

It was such a nice evening, and I haven’t properly dressed up in a really long time! We got fancy food, drank free alcohol, and danced a bit too much. I wore a fancy dress and some heels, and I even made an effort with my hair for once, which is really unheard of.








3. I turned 21!


Couldn’t really do a post about my top 5 moments in April without mentioning my Birthday! On April 22nd, it was my 21st Birthday- which is crazy, and can life slow down a bit please.


I have a whole post detailing what I got up to, if you’re interested. But genuinely had a really lovely time, and it was nice to take a break from uni stress / life stress / and work!







4. The weather was glorious, and I spent time with great people!

We had a bit of a heatwave here in England this month, and it was the week before my Birthday which was niceeeee! I feel like I definitely made the most of the sunny weather, and most evenings were spent sat on the beach with some fruity beverage in hand, watching the sunset. I absolutely love living in Brighton when the weather is nice!


Everyone, I feel, was in a better mood, and it was just nice to sit in the sun for once and chat with friends. Also discovered Iced Coffee, and now there’s no going back. When I say “discovered,” what I actually mean is, watched “Love, Simon” with Dan, saw the main characters addiction to iced coffee, got intrigued myself, and decided to try it. A great discovery. Would recommend.





5. I got accepted onto my Masters!

Last month in my 5 things, I mentioned that I had decided to apply for an Msc in Human Resource Management, and I just found out yesterday that I’ve been offered a place! It’s really exciting but also kind of scary at the same time!

At least now I know that I have something to do next year though, which is always nice!


So, that just about rounds up my 5 Things April post. I’ve had a lovely month, and I hope May will be just as nice, but deep down I know May probably could be the worst month to date, but I’m gunna try to stay positive!

How was your April, and what was the best thing that happened to you?

Thanks as always,


Lauren xx
