Top 10 Tips for NQTs

If you've followed me for a while, you might be aware that I qualified as a primary teacher in June 2017, taking on my first class in the following September. When I think back to my first year of teaching, I instantly think of one word - EXHAUSTING! The move from training to NQT year is insane, and I don't think anything could ever fully prepare you for it. A lot of the first term was spent absolutely knackered and with a tear or two. Teaching is definitely not an easy career to go into, but that first year is one of the most rewarding - you get to call a class of children your own (after muscling in on other people's classes during training), you get to decorate and organise the classroom how you want, and you get to teach how you want - this is what you've waited all this time for.

My Top 10 Favourite Books

For as long as I can remember, I've loved having my nose in a book. I was always that kid who actually liked reading, I took that love for reading onto studying an English Literature degree, and now I'm a primary teacher, I try and ignite a love of reading into the children in my class. Unfortunately, teaching can be quite all-consuming so my time for reading has reduced quite substantially. But, during the summer holidays, I want to make a conscious effort to read a bit more. Admittedly, I'm two and a half weeks in and still on book number one, but I'm committed to reigniting my own love of reading. And I figured that the best place to start with this, was to think back about some of my favourite books of all time.

Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude Palette | Bronze Edition

If you've read my blog for any amount of time, you may already be aware that I love Bobbi Brown cosmetics. Bobbi products have made up a large proportion of my makeup collection for years - be it lipsticks, foundation, mascara and eyeshadows. I love following the BB Pros - Hannah Martin, Amy Conway and Aimee Morrison are my favourites - and keeping up with all the new releases. One of the recent releases is the Nude on Nude Eyeshadow Palette, coming in two variations, Rosy and Bronze. I love a good eyeshadow palette, and when I saw these, I knew I had to have one.
