Item Of The Day

I may be on holiday but I have tried to still do my schedule posts and today's is this dress which is my Item Of The Day.
This dress is definitely something I'm considering buying one my student loan comes in - you can never have enough dresses after all!

Topshop Dress. £38.00

The Next 2 Months

The next 2 months are pretty exciting – finally something good to look forward to! Yay. Today I go to Mallorca for 2 weeks which is extremely exciting – Sun, Sea and a lot of Relaxing will be the main orders of the day. Away from reality, away from drama and just the chance to let myself rest and prepare for my final year of uni (hurrah).

Then as soon as I come back I have a few days at home with the family before going back to real life – unfortunately – but to ease that pain I get to see one of my best friends and celebrate her birthday which is great considering it will be probably a year since I’ve seen her properly. Of course this is far too long but life just sometimes gets in the way.

Then of course it’s back to uni and LOANS come in which every student knows is literally as good a feeling as Christmas. Not that I can spend it but least all my rent, bills will be paid and I may even have some leftover to start paying off my debts and maybe a cheeky thing or 2 for myself as a treat!

Then October and it’s my birthday! Admittedly not till the end but still it’s my birthday month and it’s always an excuse to get all my closest friends together and have a good night out!

All in all I’m feeling positive about the next few months which is certainly never a bad thing – any of you got anything nice coming up or planned? Or any of you starting uni or college?

Little Catch Up

August was a long month!

So I promised that I wouldn’t go slacking on the posts and then what do I do? Completely manage to go and do just that all over again – I never seem to be able to juggle everything. With working and having to revise for resits August literally went by in a complete blur and daze! I blinked and suddenly I was in September although at the time with the pressure of exams it certainly didn’t feel like that. But resits are done (results I don’t even want to think and about) and tomorrow I am off to Mallorca for 2 weeks and I can’t wait.

Holiday packing......

…..just isn’t going well at all. I managed to overload my case on my journey home (home to see the mum and sister before holiday) and as I am writing this on the train I can truly say that my mum is going to probably wonder how long I am planning on going for! Plus I know I have clothes at home that I am going to want to take so all in all I feel that tonight and tomorrow my packing nightmare is going to continue.

How many dresses is it acceptable to take for 2 weeks? And am I really going to go running whilst away?

These are the questions that I keep asking myself and for the dresses I think 10 dresses is an acceptable number but I probably have more like 20 in my case currently and will I go running? I really don’t know but I know that I really want to and if I take my trainers that at least there’s one step in the right direction for motivation – if I don’t take them I have NO motivation. Then it’s the same question as to if I should just relax and enjoy my holiday but I won’t lie I love to do nothing sometimes but too much of doing nothing and it drives me to the brink of insanity and I honestly mean that. I would rather have too much to fit into too little time than the other way round.  Probably one of the reasons whilst I actually enjoy work.  After all there’s only so many times I can watch episodes of Beverly Hills 90210 and ER in a day.


So my mum was forever a ‘I love Iphone’ fan but 2 weeks ago she went and changed her phone to a Samsung Galaxy S4 which was ironic considering a year ago when I went and upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S2 from my old Nokia she told me I should have got an Iphone. Then she went and dropped that my sister had also upgraded (understandable her phone still had a key pad) so I was like oh whatever I don’t care but then I thought well if they have then maybe I should. So 2 days ago I went and did the same and OMG compared to the S2 it’s amazing – I mean I loved my S2 but all the gadgets and different things you can do to it I have to say it is definitely a worthy investment and I am going to spend the next 2 weeks whilst away figuring it out!

So that’s all the latest and up to date in my life – nothing too exciting (if only I had an exciting life) but 2 weeks away and then back for the my third and final year of uni! Yay! Although I know it’s going to be the hardest slog so far I actually am quite excited as well as nervous for what comes after but for now I’m focusing on the fact that in about half an hour I will be home and having my first roast dinner in literally months – too excited for words. Eeepppp!
