One year of Little Pav: A reflection

One year ago today, this little sphere of mine, that sits quietly somewhere amid this scarily vast, yet somewhat extraordinary, space known as the World Wide Web, was born; my blog, my brand, my baby: Little Pav. And what a year it’s been; from deriving as a creative outlet on a whim one quarantine morningContinue reading “One year of Little Pav: A reflection”

What piece of advice would I give to my younger self?

It’s funny: I’ve asked every participant of my #LittleChats series so far what piece of advice they’d give to their younger selves, but I’ve never been asked the question myself. It’s a tough question and, unless you don’t think too much about it and stick to the cliché “be yourself!11!1!!”, everybody’s answers will be differentContinue reading “What piece of advice would I give to my younger self?”

How to: manage deadlines

As we approach the Christmas period, it is not uncommon for students to feel overwhelmed by the inundation of assignments; I certainly found it stressful. It’s almost the end of the semester.

My favourites on Instagram: Enhancing the Instagram experience

Instagram. Us millennials and centennials are all guilty of spending hours on end scrolling through the app, consecutively double-tapping on aesthetically pleasing images that comprise our feeds as a signal of our liking, even if we haven’t read their captions entirely. The platform is renowned for its toxicity in encouraging users – particularly young peopleContinue reading “My favourites on Instagram: Enhancing the Instagram experience”

How to: write a good essay

Essays. The bane of every student’s existence, one might agree. Me? I beg to differ… to some extent. Honestly, I quite enjoyed the essay-writing aspect of both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees; not only am I a passionate writer, but I was – and am still – deeply passionate about my courses of study, whichContinue reading “How to: write a good essay”

How to: proofread university work

Finally! At long last, you’ve reached the end of that seemingly endless assignment – the one that you’ve been working on day and night for the last 5 days straight, the one that you’ve been dreading most of all, the one that you deemed almost impossible – so, that’s it! Done! Finished! Complete! Right? Unfortunately,Continue reading “How to: proofread university work”

Undecided whether to do a master’s degree? Here’s my experience

You’re approaching your final year of university. It won’t be long until you’re due to enter the “real world” of full-time work. You have no idea what you’re going to do upon graduation. All your friends have plans – one wants to go into law, another is going to become a teacher and another ~Continue reading “Undecided whether to do a master’s degree? Here’s my experience”

How to: be more organised at university

Anyone who knows me knows that I am really (and, sometimes, annoyingly) well-organised. After my distinctively short height (which I recently evaluated in another blog), I’d say it’s one of the first characteristics that others notice about me. Just a couple of years back, I remember one of my (many) aunties explaining to me thatContinue reading “How to: be more organised at university”

Living at home for university? Here are some tips

University. When you think about it, what comes to mind? Living away from home, gaining a wealth of independence and having the time of your life as that independent young adult? While that is the traditional notion, living away for university is not for everybody, even when you think it might be (I lived awayContinue reading “Living at home for university? Here are some tips”

I didn’t realise how much I love makeup until I listened to Life and Lipstick

Before I began studying for my master’s in Global Marketing in 2018, I had the slightest clue about business and marketing. The only understanding I had of the subjects before then derived from my 12-week marketing internship in London three summers ago which I sought as an opportunity to spruce up my CV, incognizant toContinue reading “I didn’t realise how much I love makeup until I listened to Life and Lipstick”

How I learned that it’s okay to change your mind about your career prospects

From the ages of thirteen to nineteen, I was so sure I wanted to be a high school teacher. Certain, in fact. I was so sure, I was doing everything I could to gain as much teaching experience as possible alongside my GCSE, A level and university studies to add to my CV. Six yearsContinue reading “How I learned that it’s okay to change your mind about your career prospects”
