Conto Lounge, Winton
On a rainy, autumn day my friend Katie and I went for a nice coffee (she got a hot chocolate) at the Conto Lounge on Winton high street. I think I spend around £20 a week on a nice coffee, the addiction I getting a bit ridiculous.
So the weather has taken a turn for the worst, it is officially winter and my mood is at an all time low. It is the beginning of my reading week and I am spending it at my boyfriends house. The fact I have the whole week off is stressing me out, I have so much I need to do and feel like I won’t get it all done. Solly also has his exam to become a qualified electrician on Friday. I am staying with my boyfriend all week as my Mum has officially moved out to Saudi Arabia to be with my Dad and I am not going to see either of them until Christmas. My house is so cold and empty.
The weather is definitely affecting everybody’s moods, it is dark by 5PM and I just want the Summer back already.
Happy November everybody! Time to get into the Christmas spirit.
SOPLEY FARM – PICK YOUR OWN
Is it halloween season if you don’t pick your own pumpkin? Today my friends and I went to Sopley farm in Christchurch where you are able to go and pick your own pumpkin. In the Summer it turns into a strawberry farm and in the Winter you are able to cut your own Christmas tree. I never really get into Halloween, I never get that dressed up or decorate my house, I just never understood the point. But this year has been so much fun! Although I’m not actually going out on Halloween, I spent the whole weekend dressed up with my friends.
Maybe next year I will make more of an effort, who knows.
SUBU Summer Ball – Bournemouth University
At the end of the year, Bournemouth University puts on a a Summer Ball which is more like a festival, where all the students dress up as anything they want and spend the whole day partying. This year the line up was not as good, last year they had Chase & Status and My Nu Leng! But this year they had MK, Friction and a couple other DJs. The whole event was put on amazingly, although it was quite small it was like a festival. They had lots of different dance tents including a Bestival, Foreverland and Apple Bum stage.
As you can see, myself and 4 other girls dressed up as eggs. It sounded like a good idea and we got a lot of compliments but it was absolutely boiling. By the time it got to me taking off my egg and wearing my Topshop glittery dress, I was so sweaty it didn’t look good, haha!
The whole day was absolutely amazing, the best send of to first year with all my friends – I couldn’t ask for a better group of people at University!
Roll on the rest of the Summer!!
On Tuesday evening, my mum and sister drove down to Bournemouth from home so Alice could join me on a night out at Toast Tuesdays. She arrived to my accommodation at around 6:30, I gathered all my Uni girls together for pre drinks and we had the best night!
The next day mum picked us up from my accommodation and we went for lunch at The Stables Restaurant. They sell dishes such as thin pizzas, pies, wraps and big salads. All 3 of us got the pizzas and they were lush. I love thin pizzas because they don’t fill you up to much, so it meant were able to do a bit of shopping before I went back to my halls. Luckily I have found a lot of my Christmas presents which I am going to shop for on Black Friday.
I really love it when any of my friends and family come to visit me, although I am home a lot it is still so nice to take them around Bournemouth. It is definitely somewhere I can see myself living in the future, or even a big city.
