second year

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!

6 things I wont miss about university this summer

Okay so we are all excited that summer is upon us right? We are all hoping it’s going to be a ‘hot’ summer, but what us lot in England tend to strive for is a little bit of sunshine that lasts at least longer than an hour! We don’t often get amazing weather in England and when we do it’s sun glasses and ice creams all round and it usually only lasts for one day but oh well! So if you’re a student like me you’ll be coming close to ending your first/second or maybe even third year in university and looking so forward to the summer ahead, am I right? On that note, I thought I would do a post on 5 things I wont miss about university this summer when I’m at home! 🙂

  1. Getting up at 9am for a lecture or seminar and being to tired to even open my eyes.

  2. Not having any food in the house and mentally making note of the edible items I wish I had in my fridge or cupboards.

  5. Having to decide between buying toilet roll or chocolate when I only have enough left for one option. (Don’t worry it’ll always be the toilet roll! haha)

  6. Trying to get on an already overcrowded bus to get to uni on time and hoping I won’t be the one the driver leaves behind because the bus is to it’s maximum capacity.

The 90’s Kid Tag! The glorious year of 1993…

So I was looking at some other lovely bloggers blogs and I came across a 90’s kid tag on Lauren’s blog! If you’d love to take a look or go to her blog then you can check it out here – http://keepcalmitsonlyablog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/blast-from-past-calling-all-90s-kids.html

I was born in 1993 so I thought that I would give this a shot because it seemed cute and it’s always nice to be nostalgic now and then! So let’s get started…


1. Favourite Disney film?
The Lion King, The Little Mermaid and probably Snow White. (On the topic of films however, I did watch one with my dad when I was little called ‘The 10th Kingdom’ and it was one of my favourites for a while although it’s not Disney I thought I’d throw that in)
 
2. NSYNC or Backstreet Boys?
Neither personally, however my sister loved to listen to Backstreet Boys constantly.
 
3. Favourite candy/sweets?
I liked ring pops, nothing was more glamorous than them! 
 
4. Weirdest fashion trend?
I spent most my childhood happily dressing in camouflage clothing as I loved it! (Bearing in mind I am the daughter of a ex-soldier) and I also remember I had a two piece set, which was long trousers and a crop top in a bright yellow colour (Hahaha!) But I also had a pair of silver glittery jelly heels! 
5. Favourite music artist/band?
Spice Girls and S Club 7 for sure! (Personally my favourite song by S Club 7 was reach for the stars! hahah)
6. Favourite game? (board game, playground)
I had a favourite playground game, I can’t remember the name now but it was something to do with oranges! 
7. What would you watch on TV after school & Favourite TV shows?
Art Attack,Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hey Arnold, Arthur, Rupert, Little Bear,The Queen’s Nose, Rosie and Jim, Bill and Ben just to name a few! 
8. Favourite book?
I read mostly Saddle Club, Roald Dahl and Jacqueline Wilson books. Although I did have a lot of pet related books because I would always nag my parents for an animal, any animal and in this desire I would end up buying lots of animal care related books.
9. Favourite clothing store?
I can’t remember! 
10. 90’s beauty memories?
Bright blue & green eye shadow, roll on body glitter, crimped hair and hair braids. I also liked to get the children’s make up from the supermarkets, you know the kind that were in the toy area and smelled like plastic but were in ravishing shades of dark pinks and purples!
11. Favourite McDonalds happy meal toy?
I can’t really remember the toys I got from McDonalds back then sadly but I do remember going to McDonalds with one of my older sister’s and her friends.
 
12. Favourite toy?
I collected tons and tons of Pokemon stuff, cards, toys everything you name it. I also loved barbies, I had a mermaid one that when you put her tail in water it changed different colours! I also had a Tamogotchi a little baby pink one in the shape of an egg 🙂
So that’s my 90’s kid tag and if you were born in the 90’s why don’t you give it a go as well? Comment and let me know 🙂
