I have been blogging since the beginning of 2015. It’s nearly 2017, so that’s nearly 2 whole years I’ve spent rambling on the internet. I didn’t always have this blog though, no, this is my new blog that I have decided to start (quite late at night… I should be sleeping for school tomorrow) simply because I felt like a change. After a while, I found that I wasn’t really enjoying myself and blogging felt more like a chore than a hobby that I love to do. I feel like a change of scenery will cure this, so I’ve decided to throw caution into the wind and set sail on a new blogging adventure over the great ocean we call the internet.

We’ve all been there, the dreaded interview. Whether it’s for a job, work placement or academia, the phrase “we would like to arrange an interview to discuss your application further” is enough to strike fear into the hearts of all of us. I had a mock interview in uni this week, which I had to treat like a real interview that I would be likely to encounter out in the big bad world of work. I was nervous as hell (I’ve never been interviewed for anything before) so here are some tips to hopefully help anyone facing an interview in the near future!

The days are shorter, there’s a chill in the air and the leaves are changing to that beaut yellow and orange that we all know and love… yes, it’s autumn again! Continue reading “Falling into Fall”
Wow I’m getting really bad at posting regularly but I’m kinda done apologising for having a life and being busy so here is a come-back post sorta explaining why I’ve been a pure ghost on the blogging front… I went on a wee holiday! (wooh!) Continue reading “My Short Girls Trip”
I’ve been blogging for a good wee while now (not just on this particular blog- I’ve had others) and ‘Ciara’s Little Blog’ has become a complete passion of mines. I love it and this blog is the first one I’ve actually had success with; the first one where I actually have an audience (thanks so much BTW I love you all!!!).

A few weeks ago my family and my auntie’s family all went on holiday to Tenerife. It was their first time on a foreign holiday so they were grateful for some guidance and we were grateful for the company… the more the merrier! Continue reading “A Week in Tenerife”
It’s been a wee while since I’ve reviewed a book, not because I haven’t been reading (because I have) but because I simply couldn’t be bothered to sit and actually think about how I felt about those books. I have Goodreads and I’ve set myself the challenge of reading 50 books this year. We’re half way through the year and I’ve only read like 11 so I actually feel a lot of pressure to blast through books like there’s no tomorrow. Continue reading “Book Review”
It’s been a hot minute since I have done something completely spontaneous and outta the blue. I’m the kinda gal who has to have everything planned out by time of departure and activities to partake. So when my sister asked if I wanted to go on a road-trip with her and her boyfriend I was a bit apprehensive. After some persuasion I was convinced to go and I’m so glad I did!

Anyone suffering from any form of mental illness will know just how difficult it sometimes is to cope from a day-to-day basis. I actually often find that because I got a bit of help (6 weeks of free counselling and a few anxiety meds) there is an expectation for me to be completely fine all the time. This is ridiculous. Just because I’m ‘recovering’ doesn’t mean I can’t have bad days.

Every year there is a vintage car show held at Spring Hill House in Moneymore, and every year I go to it with my Dad. I’m not super into the cars (that’s more my Dad’s style) but Spring Hill House is one of my fave places in the whole world!
