NEW BEGINNINGS

Hi guys, if you weren't aware I recently got accepted into University (I say recently, I mean about a month ago). After much deliberation I decided to decline my offer.

I gave myself a couple of weeks to find something to do, I was pretty set on not going into a full time job and while I was looking on the site of a local college I stumbled across a Graphic Design course. I applied and went to a few induction days and then enrolled on the course.

I've been at college for a week already and have met some amazing people and the course is essentially perfect for me. I was so nervous about even applying but I have a feeling that the decision will be one of the best I've ever made.

I love art and drawing and designing so this course will give me lots of experience with all of this and more. I forgot how much I missed GCSE art and I'm so glad that I'm now on a course that focuses solely on it. I got my timetable last week and I'll have plenty of time to work and earn money while I'm studying, I'll also try my best to really focus on my blog too.

I can't believe that I spent the majority of sixth form panicking about the future and now I feel totally relaxed about it. I'm gaining another qualification and meeting loads of like minded people. I'm so excited to see what the future brings in the next two years of the course.

PRIMARK JEANS: HAUL

Hi guys, I've been shopping quite a bit recently and when I was shopping I realised I only owned one pair of jeans so I decided to pick up a few pairs.


The only pair of jeans that I had were a black pair of Topshop Leigh's. While I think a good quality pair of jeans is essential I decided to go for a cheaper option and had a look at the jeans that Primark had to offer. I picked up a blue pair of skinny jeans and two grey pairs. I really like the detail on the grey pairs and I can't wait to style them in some outfit posts really soon!

I also just wanted to mention that I paid around the same amount for all three pairs as I did for my pair of Topshop jeans. I think I'll probably still buy Topshop jeans because they are so comfortable and have such a lovely fit but I love these three pairs too.

Look out for more posts really soon and I'll see you soon!

MY 18th BIRTHDAY


Hi guys, I know I haven't posted in a while but I've been pretty busy and I'll talk about that more soon but today I thought I'd write a post about my 18th birthday because on the 18th August I turned 18!

I'd decided that I wanted to go to London for the day with a few of my close friends as I've never been one to have a big party or anything to celebrate my birthday, I just prefer a chilled day.

When we got to London we spent a good few hours on Oxford street then stopped for some food and then headed to a couple of the big parks. First of all we sat in Hyde Park for a while and then made our way to Primrose Hill when the weather took a turn for the worst and it started chucking it down.

Overall I had a really nice day doing a bit of shopping and just relaxing with my friends. I took a few photos too so decided I'd share them in this post.
