Life Lately: Sun, Stress and A Very Nice Dress

Image-1

Finishing uni is fun and exciting, until you realise you’re probably moving away from your friends, your social life and you’ll probably spend a good few months skint and stroppy.

I’ve done it, I’ve finished. God knows how I’ve done but I couldn’t wait for it to be over and now that it is i’d quite like to start it all again. Uni for me was so great, I moaned my way through final year but looking back I’d take it over job seeking any day of the week.

As well as that, I’ve turned 21! I honestly had the best weekend ever of celebrating with all of my favourite people. We hired out a private terrace in Manchester overlooking the city, I created an A* playlist and drunkenly danced the night away. I wore a cute white frock from Zara because I figured there’s no point only wearing white on your wedding day – 21st birthday celebrations are equally as princessy.

I was spoilt rotten and recieved some lovely gifts and some very generous donations to the bank of Abbie and my unhealthy Topshop addiction. It’s very much all gone now but I doubt those who gave it to me wanted it saved for a rainy day… at least I hope not…

I’ve been very much on the move and haven’t actually had an empty suitcase for well over a month now, it’s been packed, unpacked and repacked more times than I care to count and while I moan about the tedious train journeys, I’d moan more if I was sat on my backside doing nothing. I’ve also moved out of my precious flat and I miss it so much! I bid it a fond farewell and was picked up by the mother who helped me stuff my entire life into a Mini. Note to all: Mini’s are not big enough for moving house, I have to go back for the rest of it at some point.

I’ve mentioned this in the last few posts but I’m very much into clothes at the moment, and beauty is taking a bit of a backseat (emphasis on the bit, I’m still more obsessed than is socially acceptable). I’ve also got a strong feeling of wanderlust and in some ways wish I’d saved to have a month or so of travelling before I enter the big wide world, but I didn’t and so that little daydream will have to go on hold. I’m going to put more of a fashion focus on this blog and also perhaps talk a little more about food; another thing I’ve grown more and more fond of. (She says, while setting up a flat lay of makeup… Old dogs etc etc) We’ll see how it goes…
