my uni room revamp

On the clear desk by my window I keep all my books, diary and other Uni bits and bobs. I keep my Sonic Bomb and I have a mini table where I keep lots of pretty flowers. These are actually all from Lidl.

This Ivy is from Haskins Garden centre which is also where I got the plant pot that it goes in. This stands on top of my Alexa Chung book, where I keep my JBL speaker and a cute little pumpkin from Lidl. The cactuses are from Ikea and my incense is from Glastonbury high street. On the end of this shelf I keep my nice perfume. Underneath is an electric fire place which actually doesn’t work, ahah!

Around the top of this wall opposite my window, I have stuck up all my disposable photographs that go years back. On the left is my full body mirror which is from the Range, my frame is also from the Range. The aloe vera is from Haskins garden centre and I love it! The cute little mirror I got from Asos and next to it I keep my lavender and coconut spray from Holland and Barrett. 

In the corner of my bedroom is my double bed where on the sign I hang a Moroccan style spread which adds to the room completely. All my pillows and the blanket are from the Range.


Since coming back to University after Christmas I have completely redone my bedroom. I wanted to make it a lot more cosier so that I actually want to hang out in there rather than always in the kitchen. After adding lots of little bits I have made it a lot more comfortable and I absolutely love it.

This was after all the help of my lovely mother! 🤩

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.

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.

nearly time for Christmas

Bournemouth Christmas Market

It is beginning to look like Christmas!! Christmas is probably my favourite time of the year, everybody is jolly with not a care. Although November is a bit of a no mans land, it does just make me so excited for the 1st December.

On Monday night my friends and I went down to the Bournemouth market at got a warm hot chocolate and sat in the grotto. Bournemouth is so beautiful and Christmas so you will be seeing a lot more photos. I can’r wait to visit even more Christmas markets!!

Remember, remember the 5th of November

Yesterday I was in a huge rush to get back from Univesity to watch a fireworks display at my old work, The Ashcott. I had drove back to University on the Sunday evening as on the Monday I had training to become a blogger and a vlogger. This means I will be writing articles and make videos for Bournemouth Uni, which is great experience for what I was to do when I am older.

I left the training early before my 2 hour drive home to make it in time for the fireworks. I hadn’t seen any yet this year, but it seems like they have been going off absolutely everywhere, all week. I am now on reading week, where I am getting an extremely long list of Uni tasks done before I go back on Saturday. I am on a tight schedule as I need most of it to be done by Thurday, as I am spending the day in Exeter visiting my younger brother at Uni. Then, on Friday, my boyfriend has his exam and will be finished by 1. So I want to feel like I have accomplished enough to spend the whole day with him without worrying.

Hope you all have the best week!
