january blues

HAPPY SUNDAY!

I am currently sat in my living room, by the warm fire, stressing about my exam on Wednesday. I am the WORST at taking exams. I hate being put on the spot. After Wednesday I am free to do whatever and start a fresh in the Uni year. I am going to create my 2018 Highlights video, revamp my Uni bedroom, blog a lot more and hopefully get myself a part time job. I have a lot of things to pay for this Summer so I better start saving.

January is the worst month of the year, you believe that Winter is over because Christmas has ended when really it has just begun.

This is a picture from Solly and Is trip to Rome over Christmas. I have serious travel bug at the moment and can’t wait to get away again. February is the month for a placement search and I am hoping to find one in a European country to get away for a whole year. Nothing appeals to me more than living in another country and learning about a whole new culture.

I have just sent in my 35mm film camera pictures to be printed. 34 pictures just of Solly in Rome! I am excited to share them all and start using this camera a lot more.

happy new year 🎆

WELCOME TO 2019!

Hello everybody, its 2019!! (Actually we are 3 days into 2019.) To celebrate on New Years Eve my close friends and I went to a Razzle Dazzle party at Bocabar in Glastonbury. What was so amazing is that not only were my close friends from home their, but my two house mates Ellie and Maddi also came with their friends. The only other people I needed their to celebrate were Katie (who lives ages away) and Kelsey (who is celebrating New Years in Tenerife with her boyfriend.) We celebrated New Years at Bocabar last year and it has never disappointed, it is the best local way to enter the New Year with my best friends!

Sorry this post is late, I have been very busy trying to organise all my University work and just my life in general. Today I woke up and went to a bootcamp at my local gym with my mum. I am now going to spend the day doing Uni work and detoxing. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE, lets make it a good one!

so much love!

THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

On Friday evening when everyone has broken up from work, my whole friendship group went out for a massive Christmas meal. This is the only time (other than Glastonbury Festival) where we can all be together because everybody is at University or full time work.

We went to The Crown in Catcott, the same pub we ate at Christmas 2017.

MY CHRISTMAS EVE EVE COCKTAIL

The skirt I wore is from PrettyLittleThing – this is where I have been buying all of my clothes recently. Although leopard print is not very festive. Merry Christmas Eve everybody, hope you have a lovely evening!

feeling festive yet?

Exactly 1 week until Christmas and I am feeling pretty festive. I am so happy to be home, sat in the living room by a Christmas tree and a warm fire, I am not used to this luxury at University. Home is where the heart is and I feel very content, so I want to share with you all some ways to get into the Christmas spirit.

DO YOU HAVE AN ADVENT CALENDAR?

You will never be too old for an advent calendar. Im turning 21 in 2019 and I have 2. I have a ‘The Book of Beauty’ which I will do a review on in the New year and a cadburys chocolate one!

PUT ON SOME CHRISTMAS SONGS & MOVIES

You won’t ever feel festive until you have listened to ‘Fairytale of New York’ and watch ‘Elf.’

YOU MUST VISIT A CHRISTMAS MARKET

The only Christmas market I have been to this year is Bournemouth market, but there is nothing more festive than sitting in a grotto with some mulled wine. I definitely want to do this again before Christmas Day.

BUY YOURSELF SOME BAILEYS

There is nothing more festive than a glass of baileys at the end of every day. There is no alcoholic bev I love the most!

BE SURE THAT YOUR HOME IS DECORATED

My home is more than decorated. I got home from University to the house being covered in fairy lights, ball balls and two Christmas trees!

Christmas Day is 1 week today, the countdown begins. Christmas Day also means the Victoria Secret Fashion show 2018!!

 

Mabel @ O2 Bournemouth

TUESDAY 11TH DECEMBER

Last night I went to the O2 Academy in Bournemouth to watch Mabel. I went with my course friend Tia and Mabel was amazing. I have seen Mabel once before at Love Saves the Day but last she was a lot better than I remembered, although Tia and I were the oldest ones there.

I have decided to go home for Christmas tomorrow as the boiler n our house is broke, so we have no heating or hot water. I am spending tonight at my Auntie and Uncles because the house is freezing at night! – and I get a nice, home cooked meal!! My mum got home from Saudi Arabia on Sunday so I am so excited to see her tomorrow evening!

My top is from PrettyLittleThing and the belt is from Urban Outfitters (it is my friend KTs.)

I can’t wait to go home for Christmas!!

THE PERFECT SUNDAY

On Sunday, the house made a roast dinner as a way to end the weekend and to celebrate semester one. How quickly has the time gone? Today Ellie went home for Christmas, Mads is travelling home and Katie and I are going home on Friday, leaving our cute, little house behind for nearly a month. This week I am keeping myself very busy – tomorrow I am going to watch Mabel, spending wednesday at a Christmas market and thursday I have my last lectures of the year, then Katie and I are going for food!! This weekend I am off to Birmingham to visit my sister, then drive her home for Christmas!

Who is excited for Christmas? I honestly cannot wait to get home to my friends and family. In just over 2 weeks I am off to Rome.

HUJI PICTURES

A couple of pictures of Els & I all dressed up before a night out. 

How is everybody’s week going? I went to the pub last night with a couple of my house mates friends from last year, I hadn’t had a pub night in ages. This week has been very productive so far, I am feeling extremely motivated with University and my fitness but the one thing I am struggling with is finding content for my blog to get me into the Christmas spirit. I seem to of lost my urge to take pictures of everything like I did last yea so I have not uploaded anything slightly Christmassy. I love Christmas so much that I find it hard to spread the love and happiness through my blog but that is something I really want to do.

Tonight I am going to a bloggers and vloggers meeting at University and then dinner at my auntie and uncles – I haven’t seen them in ages. Also how horrible is this weather? Makes me want to shut myself inside all day.
