Just A Quick Thank-You From Me In My Hello Kitty Onesie

So lately I have got a mass amount of support, motivating comments and friendly remarks about my blog, blog posts and myself which has made me over the moon happy!

So I just wanted to say a thank you once again for the mass of support, followings and likes on all my social platforms and posts! You’re all wonderful followers and I love reading all your blogs just as much as you do mine, so in return here is a picture of me in my Hello Kitty Onesie smiling, I took this when I saw how positive my blog was doing lately!

10 Little Things About Me

Okay so I thought I would do ten little things I may not have mentioned before about me and I hope this helps you to feel like you know me better ūüôā Enjoy!

  1. I used to be Hello Kitty crazy – Quite literally not long ago everything I had was Hello Kitty, some may see it as babyish but quite a few people saw it as cute and I liked it so went with it. Now I am older I sort of fell out of love with the idea of Hello Kitty now I just buy my nieces pieces of clothing and things with it on instead of myself!
  2. I am not a big fan of the sun – This sounds weird, but sometimes I do not like the sun at all and would prefer if it rained or snowed. Although I am partial to some sunbathing when it is sunny outside!
  3. I was to scared to read the Goosebumps books – FACT. The front covers scared me and I never read them at all and probably wont ever.
  4. I am rather tall – Around about 5’8 – 5’9 something which I love and hate at the same time.
  5. I always used swap career aspirations – Until now I have always swapped career aspirations, you name it I wanted to be it once. Nurse, army soldier, firefighter, baker, lawyer, teacher… the list goes on but I think that partly is because when you’re growing up you do not know what you want to be therefore you imagine most jobs in a blissful and spectacular way when in¬†reality¬†there are advantages and disadvantages in every occupation.¬†Now¬†I am set on being a fashion journalist/editor and I am working towards that!
  6. I have a double jointed thumb – It sounds gross when you say it, but if you Google it or whatever all it means is my thumb can move back further than usual, hard to explain I am sure there are some YouTube videos you can watch that would explain it better visually ūüôā
  7. I love pets – I used to have to 2 Russian Dwarf hamsters, a goldfish named Jaws that came from the circus and a German Shepard dog ūüôā
  8. I used to be a tomboy РI cringe every time I think back to how I dressed and looked.
  9. This time last year I was worrying about… – Getting into University and getting a job!
  10. In A level we studied Frankenstein and Dracula, out of the two Franky was by far the best book and I learnt Dracula was just a book about sexually frustrated people according to my teacher.

Well that’s all hope you enjoyed ūüôā


4 Things I wish I knew before I came to University…

So just a few more weeks and my first year fresher life will be up and I’ll be going on Summer break and coming back a second year student! My life as a fresher has had its good points and its bad points and its damn well ugly points! So I was thinking what things do I wish I had known before I came to University last September? Well…

  1. Loans and Overdrafts run out VERY quick, It’s all cool when you look into your bank balance and you see a shining beautiful sum of cash within the thousands, but believe me that runs out faster than you can blink. I discussed this a lot of the time with my friends about where our money goes when we have nothing and everyone says roughly the same thing ‘I don’t even know what it got spent on?!?!’ Many times have I withdrawn ¬£20 and the next day it’s all gone and all I have to show for it is a packet of crisps and a basic shop? I’m not sure if there is a magical Uni overdraft stealing fairy but I wish I listened to people who warned me before I came that money goes so quickly.
  2. Pre-meeting your flatmates helps A LOT! I only met one flat mate before I moved in and we met over Facebook, but now looking back to it everyone had already met everyone by the time they got to Uni so I felt like that’s probably something I¬†should have¬†thought about before hand.
  3. I will be kissing goodbye the luxuries I enjoyed everyday. Now looking back I wish I didn’t take things like sweets, magazines and such for granted because now I rarely get a chance to get them because I’m so broke.
  4. Bring extra¬†cutlery. It’s not cool when you have someone over for dinner and you only have one set of cutlery and one plate…Awkward. Plus a lot of the time people either take/steal or ‘borrow’ your kitchen ware which can get annoying as most of it never actually returns! When I first came to University we only packed like one plate, few bowls and cups and couple knives and forks but by the end of my second semester I had like one plate left in my¬†possession. BUY EXTRA!

Well that’s a little bit more about Uni for you ūüôā

My 5 favourite items of clothing in my wardrobe

So being an avid clothes lover and fashion¬†conscious girl, my wardrobe is jam packed full of pieces of clothing. I openly admit I do not have enough storage space so much so my partner has to keep some of my clothes in his¬†accommodation¬†as well! & back home in North London before Uni I was in the same situation where I had to many clothes and not enough space. So putting all these clothes to use¬†I thought I’d share my 5 favourite items of clothing in my wardrobe with my faithful followers! ūüôā

  1. My dark blue denim skinny jeans – Obvious essential and easy to wear with near enough EVERYTHING.
  2. A red embellished teddy bear jumper I picked up from a vintage fair when I first arrived at University -It’s dead cute!
  3. My Hello Kitty onesie – There is nothing better than coming home from long seminars and snuggling up in it!
  4. A Gok Wan black formal fitted shirt which my mum brought me before I came to Uni – Perfect for the formal/casual classy look.
  5. A new tunic shirt I brought from Dorothy Perkins in the sale – It’s autumn colours are beautiful and it was a bargain! WIN.

Family Visit #2, Scorpion candy and a lot of walking!

So again I didn’t sleep very well last night and I had an early morning start as my parents were visiting which meant I was¬†completely¬†shattered and in zombie mode, but despite this I was extra excited to see my parents because I haven’t seen them in a few months since I got back to Uni.¬†This was the best visit ever as I’ve really felt a bit exhausted lately and this was the pick me up that I needed- so smiles all round! ūüôā

We spent the day venturing through Leeds, we started out by having breakfast in Becketts Bank (Wetherspoons)¬†and all ordered the standard traditional fry up! It was pretty tasty, so with my tummy filled we went to the new Trinity shopping centre (a second day trip here in a row for me) and I showed them all the new and vibrant shops that were attracting Leeds residents by the dozens! Despite the odd scramble for the escalators it seemed to be busy but alright. My parents haven’t really ever had the chance to roam around Leeds so I took this opportunity to show them all around, the walking has literally killed my feet but it was worth it! One place we went to was the Corn Exchange and I got to show them the restaurant I used to work at previously, then we made our way towards the market gazing into all the different shop windows as well strolled. The weather was not as bad as yesterday still horribly cold but least there was sunshine so I guess every cloud has a silver lining.

One interesting shop we came across that I only discovered today as well was ‘Culture Vulture’ a cute little shop that sells all unique and creative clothing, things like Adventure Time jumpers and Moomin teddies, retro bags, arcade game belt buckles and hand made unique¬†jewelry, in one of the pictures below you’ll see a really adorable looking tote bag I saw in there that says ‘Pugs not Drugs’ with a little pug on it!¬†So¬†productively¬†moving on with our day we went to another american¬†sweet shop¬†but this one had real dead scorpions¬†in lolly pops (Slightly cruel?) But I think I know what I’m going back to buy tomorrow…(Just so everyone knows, you don’t eat the scorpion¬†inside! haha)

I got a really cute Hello Kitty onesie today as well, my room always being similar to the¬†Arctic¬†is no natural habitat for me so I got a snuggly onesie so I don’t catch a cold! But we ended the day with a nice dinner out where I got a really nice cheesy¬†lasagna (a personal favourite) but I got more of the plate than I did actual food because the portion size was something resembling a child’s school dinner! So my parents being lovely let me order a excellent¬†Belgium¬†waffle with ice cream¬†and a tangy fruit compote- so I was over the moon as I love food!
So all in all it was a really lovely day ūüôā
