How is it September already!
The summer has flown by in a blink! But then I guess that’s just what happens when you’re busy! August was such a busy month for me, but I was lucky enough to take 10 days off in the middle, where I got to spend some quality time with friends and my boyfriend. Around working full-time, I haven’t had a lot of time to myself, so knowing I had these 10 days coming up, I was more than excited! I planned in advance how I would spend my time, fitting in a trip to see uni friends, friends from home and then finally spending the last few days with my boyfriend. These days that I spent with him we decided to take a trip into london and then a couple of days later, a trip to Brighton! Both days were amazing! I always love the hustle and bustle in central London. Everywhere you look there is something going on and it’s so easy just to lose yourself in your surroundings. Going to Brighton had to be my favourite day of my time off. Brighton is one of my favourite places. Theres so much to do, from shopping in the centre, to sitting on the beach. Collection vintage keepsakes from the lanes, to eating donuts on the pier! You just can’t be bored! The trip was eventful too with prying seagulls eyeing up our donuts, we tried to keep the hidden, but within moments of taking the first bite… a gigantic seagull landed straight on Chris’ head! It scared the life out of me, but I can say that moment wont be forgotten easily!
As summer draws to an end I am finishing my last week off at work before heading back to uni on the 16th of September. The time has disappeared before my eyes and I can’t help but feel sad that I have not been able to do as much in the time that I had; but that was my choice. I knew working full-time would take it out of me, but being a student, I was keen to earn as much as I could for the upcoming year.
Have you guys started back at school, uni or work? Let me know what you are up to in the comments below!

It’s that time of the month again where I fill you in with a monthly update and what a month it’s been! Sorry its a few days late but it’s here now! I have hit the 100 followers mark! And not only for my blog but my Instagram too! If you haven’t seen my feed check it out here! I want to say a big thank you to you all for the support you have given me over the past 7 months! All the support has made me not give up on blogging. There have been times where the amount of posts have dropped and there has been a lack of content, but knowing you are all out there reading my words and letting me express myself has kept me going! So thank you again!
Outside of my blog, I have been back at home for about a month now and I have started my fourth week of work. It has been crazy busy and I did struggle with the first few weeks. I was so out of routine that being thrown back into 6 days of work a week tired me out, leaving me drained and grumpy. Three and a bit weeks on and I am back into the swing of things. I love staying busy and learning new things each and everyday.
With two months left of summer, I am looking forward to my week off very soon where I hope to be spending some quality time with some of my friends from uni, as well as hopefully having a few days away with my boyfriend! The summer is flying by and I know that I’ll soon blink and it will be that back to uni time. Although I am struggling to fit my blog in around my full-time job at the moment, I am trying my hardest to make it work and hope that I can stay onto of my weekly posts for you all!
What have you been up to over the summer break? Would love to hear from you all!

Find June’s update here
June is over and can I just say… how fast is this year going!
I can’t get over how fast time flys by when your busy! Like always June was a very busy month for me and it had a lot of changes in store. The first big change was me moving! It had got to that time of year where I needed to move out of my uni halls accommodation and I was lucky enough to be able to move straight into my flat for next year! I have been staying here the last month, making the most of the last few weeks of independence before summer and I have fallen in love with this place! Majority of people at uni go into shared houses after staying in halls, but due to some complications I have ended up living by myself. I was worried about it but I love having my own space and knowing how busy I will be with uni next year I think it has worked out for the best. I have been working on a ‘Truth about my first year ar uni’ post where I go into more detail about living situations.
The second major change that I cam across was my boyfriend moving away. After getting a new job he has ended up moving further away from me. It’s a big change for the both of us and it’s still taking some getting used to but we are working hard to still see each other and as the saying goes, distance makes the heart grow fonder and I can say that, although its hard, I can see that this saying is true.
I move back home next week for my full-time summer job so got the business of that to come yet! But I also can’t wait for it!
What have you been up to recently?
I am hoping to do a Q&A at some point over the next month, please leave any questions you have below!
I hope all is well with my new 50 followers! I would like to thank all my followers for getting me to the 50 mark. It may not seem like many followers to some but as my blog is still fairly new , it is such an achievement for me!
I sadly missed last months update post due to being incredibly busy with deadlines and can say that I miss these more chatty posts! Now where to start on the past few months… I have been stressed to begin with. I had a deadline in March, another in April and a third and final coming up in just under three weeks time. The work load has been high but I have loved staying busy and being creative! My current project is a Communications module, involving illustration and photography! I have had my on and off days with my work but over all I have been loving it and a few photography posts will be coming up soon, so keep a look out for them!
Like many I had an easter break where I went home for a few weeks. During this time I got the chance to take a trip up to Wales with my family. It was a great escape from everyday life but almost left me more stress as I returned home to even more work! This aside, I did have a good time. It was nice to throw on a raincoat and walking boots and just walk for miles and miles. It also gave me the opportunity to capture some great photography shots of the scenery. I am thinking of featuring these photos in a blog post! I did a post about Cornwall a few months back and was thinking of creating another post along these line.
The next few weeks will be busy with working towards my deadline but once this is out the way its my summer break! From June onwards, I am hoping to start blogging more! I currently try to post every Wednesday afternoon and the odd Sunday with my monthly updates! I want to try and up that to every Wednesday and every Sunday and possibly a third time in the week depending on how that goes! So with that in plan I will give you a peak of the posts to come.. There will be some fashion photography, an exciting make up haul featuring newly released products and what I eat on my cheat day (credit to Chelia from Pink for Days for the suggestion)
What have you been up to in the last month and what have you got planned for the upcoming weeks? Can’t wait to hear from you all!

Stressed… that’s the first word thats pops into my mind when going to write this post. I’m writing this later that what I would have wanted because of the level of stress my head is at right now! February was such a great month but also a crazy busy one too and as I’ve entered March the busy spell has not ended but in fact the opposite! Before I summarize how my month has been I want to firstly say a big thank you to my followers for getting me to the 200 mark on Bloglovin’, I couldn’t be more grateful and secondly a quick apology about my lack and disorder in my posts!
February started on a high with my trip to Paris! After returning from Berlin in January, Paris was what was getting me through my work and when the day came I was filled with excitement. I had such a great time, experiencing many different things while I was away and gave me a nice break to start off the month. The hard work began when I came back from my trip though, with deadlines on consecutive Fridays, meaning I had to up my time spent on my work, resulting in a drop back on my blog. My first deadline was my shoe marketing project, which I received a great grade for and couldn’t be happier about. The other project was done in two weeks and unfortunately I feel is not my best work, researching, designing and making a shirt in two weeks is always a challenge. Now those deadlines are out of the way I have just begun with my Fashion Communication module! Time to draw, draw, draw!
I would love to hear what you have all been up to the last month! Has anyone else had a busy schedule? Let me know below!
January 2017, a new start to a new year; a year where an indefinite amount of opportunities lay ahead of me, waiting for me to discover. I was so excited to enter this new year as I knew this would be a year of change and adventure. Entering January I already had lots planned for the upcoming months and I was eager to get started! As the clock stuck midnight and the fire works went off, the new year began being slightly tipsy and laughing away with my best friend, full of hope and ambition; and I was more than right to be excited. Although it was an eventful month with a few ups and downs, there have been many highlights, the bigger ones which you would have seen throughout my blog posts and as for the downs from the month, I have decided not to dwell on them!
Firstly I started back at uni after Christmas ready to go with a new project and with less than two weeks now until my deadline, although being slightly stressed, I have loved every minute of the work I have done and am looking forward to sharing the final product with you all. Next there was Berlin, as you will have seen from posts I had an amazing time, experiencing incredible sights and absorbing myself into the world of fashion! Shortly after coming back from Berlin I took part in the Fashion ID exhibition with the final year fashion students, more of which you can find out in my previous post about it.
Alongside the activities that I have done I have also been managing to keep up with my new years goal of being in a more healthy routine and have managed to go to the gy regularly as well as eating three healthy meals a day! Let me know if you would like to see healthy meal ideas or what I eat in a day?
Overall I have had a brilliant start to the year and I am looking forward to carrying it on during February. I have a Paris trip coming up, alongside two major deadlines and some events with friends planned! I hope to keep you updated throughout the next month!
