Uni, fashion journalism & blogging!

Hello, Bonjour, Konnichiwa, nǐ hǎo, Guten Tag, Hallo! 

So I have been gone a long time and haven’t posted in a while, however I am back and I am hoping that this summer I will get time to blog quite a bit so fingers crossed! Since I haven’t blogged in a while, I think you all deserve a reasonable explanation and that is because last month I had an incredibly difficult amount of university work due in the same week and it meant a lot of hours staying up till the morning, barely eating and being overly tired 😦 Luckily however now I have finished my university work and my second year at university and I am home for summer!

Before I broke up for summer I was planning on doing quite a lot of things this year and I am still hoping to do them at some point like first aid and learning to drive but something which I have been thinking about more lately is my old dream of becoming a fashion journalist. For those of you who were with me from the beginning, you’ll remember I wanted to be a fashion journalist and I put all my time and effort into juggling my university work and writing for various magazines, in total I wrote over 30 articles published both online and in print format so that was successful for me however eventually it all got a bit much and I couldn’t juggle the two much longer, so I gave up writing for magazines and at this point I was writing for at least 6 or 7 different upcoming or amateur magazines so it was a lot to give up after working so hard on it but it had to be done. After a long long long break of not writing, lately I have been looking into getting back into the fashion world! I want to write articles again, so I went and started writing for some of the ones I use to write for but now I am looking into other areas of fashion as well which might be interesting like photography and styling (I don’t know if I’d be any good but that’s why you learn and try!).

I’m not completely sure which direction I want to go into for my future career but there is three different industries I am thinking about which is fashion, teaching or health care and I have routes planned for all of them – so we will all have to wait and see what next year holds 🙂

Other than that, I’ve been worrying a lot about various things like finances and health, but I am still smiling so that’s good! 🙂

Well I hope you’re all well and I am back now!

8 random little things I love!

If you had to think of 8 random things you love, what would they be? Some may come to you straight away and others may take a while and then you think “I love that!” and you had forgotten why you love those things! Well I thought I would do a list of 8 random things I love, some might even be the same as you! 🙂

  1. The sound of rain – There is something so peaceful about the sounds of rainfall, I like when it properly pours down heavily and the sound as it hits the ground and all the houses. (I don’t however like getting cold and getting my hair wet though!)

  2. Eating delicious goodies – muffins, cakes, cookies, brownies the list is endless and to me nothing is better than coming home from uni, sitting down with a cup of tea and a muffin with a magazine or newspaper!

  3. Honey Boo Boo – If you don’t know who this little girl is Google her! To some she’s an inspiration, to others she’s full of comedy gold as the quote goes, I remember watching her and her family in the first series like WHAT AM I WATCHING?! but I love it and I love the meme’s and GIFS that come with the fame of being Honey Boo Boo!

  7. Holiday excitement – You know when you’re going away on holiday or you just booked a holiday and you imagine yourself chilling on the beach, relaxing with a cocktail in hand or trekking and seeing all the sights and you get all excited inside!

  8. When I write blog posts + other bloggers appreciate them – Okay so sometimes I lack motivation to blog, but I love it when I put up posts and I get lots of lovely comments and likes, it’s always lovely to talk to other bloggers and see that they like my little blog 🙂
