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.
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.
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!!
This year I did not go out on actual halloween as it was on a Wednesday and I had a presentation at 9:00AM the next day. But instead I went out on the Friday and Saturday before hand and dressed up as a devil one night and an angel the other – how original!
On Friday 26th October i went to a house party at my friends house. I am wearing devil horns from Wilko, matching with my friends Carolina and Kimia. I am then wearing a nice black dress from Misguided. On Saturday 27th October I went to block party in Bournemouth where you hop from club to club to watch different acts. I wore a white top from New Look and my tennis skirt is from Depop. As you can see it was a good night, I ended up behind the dj set.
Goodbye Halloween, it is time for CHRISTMAS!!
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!
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.
