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.

i love u & the city

A LITTLE CHRISTMAS TRIP TO ROME

Here comes my non – stop pics of Solly and I’s trip to Rome. As I have said I took 3 different cameras –  my phone, Olympus Pen Canon camera and a Canon film camera (which I haven’t been able to get processed yet) so I have a lot of content to share with you.

Sol and I only spent 3 nights in Rome, with only around 2 full days to fit in all the sites. When I say all the sites… there is soooo much to see! On the first day we did a hop on hop off bus all around Rome, just to get our bearings. The first stop was the colosseum which is was Sollys main site to see. We decided to get skip the queue and a tour, just because this is one of the main sites in Rome and yes it was so worth it! If you haven’t been, the colosseum is incredible and so much bigger than I imagined.

These are not just photographs from day one, but a collection of some of my favourites. We stuffed our face with pasta, pizza and a little trick for anybody going to a busy city, walk down the back streets… you will find a lot of cheap food and cute little restaurants. Solly and I used an app called ‘YELP’ to help us find the best places to eat and drink.

This was such an amazing experience for Sol and I but I can honestly say it has given me a travel bug, I WANT TO BE ABROAD 24/7 to the point my friend Kimia and I are organising a cheap trip to Berlin at the end of January, to celebrate the end of a stressful month. Where would you like to visit in the EU?

ROME 2018

Today, Sol and I arrived home from 3 nights in Rome. I decided to take Sols to Rome for his 21st birthday and Christmas present, in between Christmas and New Years as it is an age to celebrate and when you are nearly 5 years in there are not any more jumpers or perfumes I could buy him. Rome is a very exciting city – I couldn’t even begin to describe how busy we have been. From the Colosseum to the Vatican to the Trevi Fountain, there is not enough time in the day to see everything. BUT… we did it. In just 2 full days we saw everything we wanted too.

This is just the beginning of the amount of photos I have taken. I took my phone, my Canon camera and my dads old Canon film camera. I love the way film cameras come out and I am so excited to get them developed. Italy is a very beautiful country and hopefully I have captured it the best way I could.

So, after 4 days of pasta and pizza it is now New Years Eve. How quickly is time going? January is going to be a stressful month for me. From January the 1st it is time to give myself a kick up the bum. University comes first! I have waddled along for too long and I will be beating myself up if I don’t get my act together. That is not just with University, but also with money and my fitness. My only New Years resolution is to PRIORITISE – and this is with absolutely everything!

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.
