What did I do this Summer?

Friday, 2 September 2016

Having finished University late May, and officially moving out of Halls in June, I have had quite possibly the longest summer I've ever had. Yet, somehow it's also ended up being the busiest and most productive and rewarding summer too! I had a couple of weeks to rest before I jumped into my Summer Internship I had managed to bag back in May.

Summer wedding

Monday, 29 August 2016

 On Saturday I had my first and only wedding of the summer, the marriage of my cousin Sarah to Alex! It was such a beautiful little church wedding and an old barn reception, ultimate wedding goals! I wore a pinky peachy dress from Asos, paired with my Missguided clutch and New Look heels, although by the end of the night these had swapped to a much more comfortable pair of sandals!!

Comfort zone

Dress - ASOS // Heels - Office

I've been a truly awful blogger lately. I've been back at home for nearly 3 weeks now but just haven't had the drive to post. I've been busy writing essays, starting my revision for summer exams and spending time with my loved ones. I hate not being able to keep consistent with my blogging but I guess that's just the way I work at the moment! 

This is what I wore for a night out on campus when Jamie came up a month or two ago. It's definitely a bit more daring for me but I loved jumping out of my comfort zone and I'd love to do it a bit more often!

I'm back to uni on Friday for a fieldtrip to Devon, then have 3 more weeks of lectures before exam season officially starts. It's safe to say I'm super nervous! I can't believe my first year is almost over with! 

The tie-up

Saturday, 20 February 2016

top - primark // skirt - asos // shoes - office

The tie-up trend has definitely been a favourite of mine this autumn/winter, and I'm excited to see it continue into spring/summer. Primark has been my favourite shop as a student, and I loved this top so much that I got it in a second colour too! Their homeware is looking so gorgeous right now, I can't wait to spend some money on it for some goodies for my new room next year! We're signing for our house today, I can't wait. Posts may be a bit sparse in the next week, it always seems with my course you're free from work for weeks then all of a sudden everything comes at once! My deadlines are all in the upcoming week so I won't be quiet for long!

five product face

Wednesday, 17 February 2016

Being a uni student, I am one hundred times more in love with my bed than I should be. There are actual feelings there. This love means sometimes, my personal appearance is slightly neglected and my usual one hour to get ready is cut short. That's where the five product face comes along..

the £19.99 backpack

Bag - La Moda

I'm definitely a backpack-over-handbag kind of girl, throughout high school I suffered with my unpractical handbag.. having so much stuff but so little room you have to have a suitable highstreet clothing shop plastic bag (Hollister was always a keen favourite in my school) or walking home to a strap breaking from the sheer weight of all those books. In year 11 I ended my suffering by buying a rucksack, and I've been a fan ever since.

 This Christmas I decided it was time to purchase another backpack which I could use at uni. After pondering on a few websites I chose this one from La Moda, and I can't praise it enough. Although a gift, at £19.99 it's ridiculously inexpensive, it's the perfect size for all my books and also has plenty of nifty little pockets inside to hide my keys and phone - there is nothing worse than rooting in the bottom of your bag for them! It does have a slight bit of wear and tear on it, but I'm willing to overlook that. I'd never purchased from La Moda before, but after this experience, and by the looks of all their beautiful backpacks they have online, I'm definitely keen to purchase again!!
