Officially No Longer A First Year Fresher At University

So it has been a while since I have blogged a post in relation to University, so I thought this was a good place to start 🙂 I have officially ended my first year of Uni and I am now home for Summer! I’ll be heading back to University in September for my second year (Fingers crossed I get good first year results!) 

So how was my first year overall? It was good & bad but it did teach me a lot, I learnt to cook, clean, DIY, how to survive without TV (no TV license sadly so had to survive by catch up TV on my laptop), how to ignore people that wern’t exactly nice and how to keep up with all the work.

So I thought that I would show you guys my old room in my halls, I lived in 13C and it was a super cute room, very cosy!

Upstaged Vintage In Leeds Photo Shoot Pictures

So a while ago I did a review on a shop I really loved in Leeds called Upstaged Vintage, the shop has clothes from decades past and stocks some really unique and colourful items.
In return for my review on their shop the owner asked me if I would like to have some complimentary photo’s done as a thank you and also to go on their shop website, I of course agreed happily! So on Friday just before I came home I went and had them done, I chose three outfits and these were the pictures – very happy with them! 🙂

What three things do you blog about most: I’m talking about fashion: inspirations, street style looks, new brands, … about music and travelling.
Name three words to describe your blog: Honest, young and different

When did you first start blogging: I created my blog in September but since January ’13 I’m really busy with it.

Why did you begin to blog: Of course because I’m always been interested in fashion, since last year I’m done with my fashion education but I still wanted to do something with fashion so then the most important reason came up: I’m 19 years old and I don’t have a designer budget. Most bloggers talk about high fashion brands and I want to show people that you can look good even if your budget is not that high. Fashion can be fun for everyone because you have many options and I like it to show people new things; ‘See things through my glasses’.
What’s one blogging tip that you would share with other potential bloggers: Be yourself, talk about the things you like and your interests. Be honest and kind because you can learn a lot of other bloggers/people.

Do you see yourself still blogging in three/five years time: Yes, I hope so! It takes time too reach something with a fashion blog.

What’s one of the best things about being a blogger: You get the chance to know many people. It takes you to many different places and that’s really one of the best things.

Has blogging helped you significantly in any other way: My English is way better then before and I get to know new products and people that I didn’t know yet.
