09.07.17 // My First Year Uni Room

It took me quite a while to really settle into my room at uni and make it homely, which probably explains why I'm doing this post at the end of the year! I had an en suite room in halls which I've totally grown to love, there's something so exciting about being able to start a room completely afresh and make it your own. I thought I'd share some pics of the how my room was, partly for my own memories but also potentially as inspiration for any of you heading to halls. As you can probably tell fairy lights and pictures proved to be firm favourites as I found both really good at brightening up the room with colour and lighting, and they were both quite comforting to be surrounded by!
And just for contrast, this is how it is empty:
I also think I want to do before and after pictures of my new bedroom, for the same reasons as I've done this post so hopefully that will be coming very soon!

09.01.17 - Interior Wishlist

Living at uni is a lot of fun as your room becomes a blank canvas that you get to design exactly how you want (as long as you don't have garishly coloured walls!). I eventually decided to go with the colour palette of greys, mints and turquoise as it fulfilled my love of neutrals without looking too bland or clinical. I thought I'd share my favourite homeware items available now, with a few of them already being on my wishlist...

Buying my Macbook...

So yep it's finally happening. I'm going to be buying my macbook in about an hour and I'm so freaking excited I think I might burst. It was about a year ago that I decided I wanted one, because my laptop is pretty bad (not going to lie but I feel like I'm about to cheat on it, I'm slagging it off whilst writing on it!) and it's just so pretty and such a good investment and ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I have spent so long counting the pennies, scrimping on makeup, walking away from Costa (apart from the occasional times when it's cold, and I've had a bad day cause a girl's gotta get her happiness from somewhere). But after a whole year, and a trip to the bank that made me realise I have more money than I thought, it's about to happen.

I am a little worried though...my student discount card runs out tomorrow so I hope I don't lose the major money off offer, and I changed the macbook I wanted a week ago, I have changed my mind so much so I just went back …

A Quick Catch Up

I'm officially back, something I've said many times before but now it's for good. Sorry not sorry. My exams are all done and now I'm free to do whatever I want (within the law and my work schedule, obvs). I have kind of missed having my little space on the internet, and the number of posts that I've drafted but never posted has been a little bit ridiculous. Now I'm back and completely ready to share more of my thoughts with you all, and I've got a fair few ideas in my head right now.

Realistically I have a lot of time now to devote to the blog, but long term it would be naive to believe that I'll continue to be able to dedicate so much time. Therefore it's important to me that I not only push myself in terms of different and challenging post ideas, but I also include posts that are little more than my thoughts and therefore fit in well with my everyday life. I want to continue to do Life Updates because I think they're a really easy way to check …
