Hi I'm Ellie, I am from and live in England, 21 years old and married to the love of my life. I'm currently a third year undergraduate studying Ethics, Philosophy and Religion.

This is my blog on my life as a full time student, my marriage and my health and fitness, I post about all three of these things on here, as well as occasional pictures of myself.

I also like reblogging things about running, yoga, love, marriage, studying, happy words or sayings, anything Disney related, coffee, tea, vegetables, pizza, dogs, pandas and anything else that makes me happy! :)

Feel free to say hi, I don't bite!

my study tips

We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers—but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.

Got my glasses. They’re not as bad as I expected. But everything feels so weird. It looks clearer but strange at the same time. 

I think I can definitely pull the academic look off now. Time to do some revision so my grades reflect how smart I look…

"You wanna know what marriage is really like? Fine. You wake up- she’s there. You get back from work- she’s there. You fall asleep- she’s there. You eat dinner she’s there… you know? I mean, I know that sounds like a bad thing, but it’s not. Not if it’s the right person. Then it’s good, it’s really really good."

The recommended amount of sleep is between 7 and 9 hours.
Less than 7 hours sleep = weight gain
Lack of sleep activates your body’s SNS system (fight or flight response) causing it to store fat reserves and release hormones that keep you from winding down at night. 
Less than 7 hours sleep also results in reduced leptin production which causes increased appetite.
Establishing a regular nightly pattern will help you get better sleep and improve your health.
Go to bed and wake up within the same 60 minute windows everyday to establish natural circadian rhythms.

Like most girls, my daughter hears, “That’s a pretty dress, did you pick it yourself?” or “What lovely hair you have,” or “You have the most amazing eyelashes,” or “I like the bows on your shoes,” or “You are so cute” almost every time somebody engages in conversation with her.

If family, friends, shop assistants, complete strangers, and even Santa only remark on how girls look, rather than what they think and do, how can we expect girls to believe that they have anything more to offer the world than their beauty?
