My name is Imali (although my more commonly used nickname is ‘Mali’), a 17 year old college student and Virtual Assistant from the UK.    I am currently studying ICT (As I am a total nerd) and I also like reading books!   I love designing websites, helping my fellow students achieve their goals and making (what I like to think are) vaguely useful posts to share with others around my age.   I’m continually trying new things, which I like to document on this blog, as well as trying to manage several chronic health conditions (as well as being a part-time wheelchair user),  shopping on a budget and looking after my gorgeous black lab!


I’m honestly not one for videos and vlogging (although I try occasionally!), So for now I’m sticking to blogging and social media!


A couple of my other constantly expanding interests are Science, all things nerd, music, makeup and NASA.


I try to fill this blog with positive vibes – my aim is to help you college/uni students be as organised and prepared for what each day brings as possible, as well as show you that just because you have a health condition doesn’t mean you can’t accomplish your goals!    If you have suggestions or ideas for what you’d like to see more of on my site – let me know!


Thanks and have a great day!




About my blog:

I started this blog way back in 2015, as a way of connecting with my friends and getting to practice I.C.T. and web design.

Whilst I’m still very much a beginner in the world of website and blog design my blog has grown well and is starting to look a bit more professional compared to the first draft I ever made!

Over my time blogging I have been sponsored by many major companies, including:

  • Maybelline New York cosmetics
  • Paperchase UK stationers (X2!)
  • Yorkshire Linen homewares
  • Passion Planner agendas
  • Penguin Random House book publishers
  • Hey Little Magpie
  • April Olander designs
  • Help me organics
  • +++ More.


I really love working alongside companies on these types of posts and hope to do more of this kind of work in the future!  If you’d be interested in sponsoring me or advertising your products on my homepage or social media, please send me an email at: pumpkinsandplanners@gmail.com.
