Day 3 – 5 things I dislike

So in this little post it is day 3 so I will be discussing 5 things that I dislike, I’ll make it short and sweet and to the point! ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Liars – What’s the point in lying, you only have to remember all the lies you’ve told and eventually liars always get caught out, plus it’s not healthy.

2. Tuna – Just yuck. It smells, it’s a fish and it looks unappetizing.

3. Bugs in my room at night when I’m trying to sleep cause they might crawl on me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

4. Eating healthy and then having a moment of weakness eat lots of rubbish and then feel bad afterwards.

5. When I do my make up and I have to sneeze or itch my eye ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So that’s 5 little things I dislike, there’s probably more but that’ll do for now! Tomorrow is day 4 which is what’s in my bag!ย giphy (1)

Uni, fashion journalism & blogging!

Hello, Bonjour, Konnichiwa, nว hวŽo, Guten Tag, Hallo!ย 

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  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 theย edible items I wish I hadย in my fridge or cupboards.

  3. The mountains of coursework, assignments and deadlines!

  5. Having to decide between buying toilet roll or chocolateย 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.

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 14 HANDMADE

So I went looking for something I handmade around my flat because today is the keyword ‘Handmade’. I love to make things, I’d say I am creative but whether I am any good at it is another story! The reason I love making things is because I personally find it fun and relaxing, so I tend to spend my time doing some arty things when I am not overflowed with coursework or doing seminar reading for uni! ๐Ÿ™‚

The handmade item I chose is something I did last Summer after a day spent in London, my partner knows I love sharks so brought me a 3D wooden shark model kit to construct from the natural history museum so I spent a whole afternoon fixing all the pieces together to make a 3D shark and then I painted it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Any things that you like to make or are proud of having made? Let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚

Well the things I am about to list are things that if I accomplished this year I would feel super happy about doing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Start learning to drive.
  5. Gain and complete work experience.

Well hopefully by the end of this year all five of these things will be ticked off and I will be putting posts up if I get round to completing and doing any of them to let you all know! ๐Ÿ™‚

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 12 LOVE

(Super lovey dovey post ahead! But don’t we all love a good lovey dovey post now & then anyway? ๐Ÿ™‚ )

So yesterday was day 12 of my photo challenge and the keyword was love which is such a simple but strong little four letter word.

My photo I chose was actually a collage I made (cheating a bit as I didn’t actually take a photo but made a collage) however I think it best sums up love for me.

20140306-081434.jpg

This is my partner, the reason I am using him for day 12 is because he showed me what loving someone and being loved was like (I’m talking about romantically, not the family kind of love) the kind of love that you feel when you think you’ve found your soulmate or the person you feel you could spend your life with and never feel bored.

That’s how I feel about my partner I’m in love with him for many reasons; we are best friends, we know every little thing about each other and we have so much in common, he makes me feel confident and like I can do anything, he does so much to make sure I’m happy and he’s just overall wonderful in my eyes.

I won’t lie though like all relationships we’ve had some super tough times and arguments but we always come out of them learning, forgiving and making steps forwards rather than backwards – there for each other through thick and thin ๐Ÿ™‚

Well hope you enjoyed my little day twelve post for yesterday. Today day 13 is a film! And shall be uploaded later ๐Ÿ™‚

How to survive at university – House hunting!

It’s the thing that every student faces once there first year of university is coming to an end – moving out of halls and finding a place of your own.

It can be tricky, infuriating, tiring and uninspiring searching for the perfect or near enough perfect place to live for your second year (&3rd!) at university believe me I’ve been there and done it! Before I started university I used to have this conjured up notion in my head that finding and buying/renting a house would be so much fun as an adultย (Just one of those things you see parents/adults doing as a kid and think wow I can’t wait!)ย but once uni came around and I had the urgency to find somewhere before the end of term I saw the realness of searching for your first property – It’s tough, but don’t worry here’s some pointers to help ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Estate agents, private landlords and other search engines will be your first port of call, get looking early to avoid lack of properties available and missing out on some great places.
  • Look for somewhere close to uni, these are sometimes more pricey than properties further away from your university but it’s worth it when you’re super tired and can’t wait to just go home and sleep!
  • If you want somewhere further away, make sure there is good transport links or walking routes to any amenities and your university.
  • Locate the closest doctors and dentists and get signed up! Looking for a house near these sorts of practices are beneficial, no-one wants to make a long journey to the doctors when they’re sick or injured.
  • Look for a property in a safe area, if you’re in a big city chances are crime is common but that doesn’t mean you have to be a victim of it – make sure there’s locks/burglar alarms and any other security systems.
  • Remember you’ll have to pay bills now, things like electricity and water so make sure you find a place where the rent isn’t to high and you can afford to pay bills still and survive!

Anyway I hope these little tips help! Everyone is different, you may desire a house with all modern furniture whereas someone may be looking for one with all vintage and traditional decor but these are just general pointers ๐Ÿ™‚

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 3 TECHNOLOGY

Hey everyone!

I just want to firstly say a massive thank you to the recent new followers, the followers who have been there from the beginning and the ones who joined along the way! Your support for my growing blog has been immense and I am so grateful there are people who appreciate what I write & enjoy looking at my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

I have received many comments over the past few days and they have all been so lovely! So thank you and please keep it up because I love to hear what you all think and if you’re enjoying it ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway moving on! Yesterday was day 3 of the photo challenge, I didn’t get to upload this yesterday because for some reason my WordPress wouldn’t load! But success because today it did and I am here writing this post! ๐Ÿ™‚ So choosing something that represents technology was tough because I didn’t want to go for the cliche things but after much deliberation I decided that the best photo is my iPhone background.

My iPhone is something I use everyday, I think to me it represents that technology has come so far considering the past that now everyone can have a piece of a growing industry themselves, not only this but I think it represents the amount of people that are technologically advanced nowadays and the growth in consumerism.

Well hope you enjoyed my 3rd photo, day 4 will be up tonight and it’s a pet/animal!
