Final Major Project

Well my three years at Roehampton University are over
I am now a bum
I graduate in July and intend to just enjoy myself for a while before then
I've posted some photos of my final project for photography
One of the reasons for my stressy nature recently
and also the reason for a lack of blogging!
The projects called 'Transitions' and is about the transitional object
If you want to know more just ask

I've bene celebrating with jelly tots and shopping 
and intend to get nicely drunk tomorrow night


'cause this ain't wonderland...damn sure ain't narnia

I know I've been away for a while but I've had a stressful couple of weeks
Always excuses!
I'm back on the right track now though
I now know what I want to do with my life so to speak
Taking a year off after my degree is now over and going to do a PGCE course next year and get into teaching
I'm excited :) 
Just a quick outfit post 
 Playsuit: Primark, one of my new purchases not sure if I find it flattering yet
Cardigan: Topshop
 This has pretty much sums up my life :P
I love this polish
Goes on well, two coats, and lasts ages too

Birds of a feather....

My last deadline ever for uni is tomorrow...
Three years of my life is very nearly over
I have to get my images put onto a wall at uni and then I'm done
I've been super busy recently with uni work and other things
Bought a few bits and pieces so I'll do a collective haul type post some time next week when I finally have some free time
Went to Thorpe Park on Thursday this week which was awesome!
I've been so stressed I actually lost half a stone in a week, hope it stays off, but spending a day with some of my favourite people really helped me relax
Today I've had a real family oriented day
Most of the day was spent with my Grandad, his wife Mary, and my cousin Kayla at an adventure park called Knockhatch in Hailsham
We had a birds of prey experience voucher my Mum bought off of Groupon, £29 each instead of £80
It was a fantastic day, got to hold various big birds and flew some too 
After that I went round to one of my Aunt's new house and had a bbq for her bf's bday
Was so lovely :) 
Here's my outfit....

Blue and White striped Jacket: Topshop
White Top: Topshop
Dark Skinny Jeans: Torrid
Worn with brown loafers: New Look

 Wearing my new MAC Hibiscus lipstick...a darker more daring colour for me but I love it
 This little fella was called Zulu
He was a little cutie :) 
And me and my beautiful cousin on the way there 

I should be back to regular posting soon

'I'm a genie in a bottle...'

I don't know why but the sun makes me want to listen to old school songs from my childhood
Beenj loving these long weekends, most of my friends work 9-5 mon-fri so I only get to see them at the weekend...samne time I see the boy so it's hard to fit everyone in...oh god that sounds ridiculous!!
But anyway I digress... I've been loving my breaks from uni work to just chill in the park or elsewhere with some of the greatest people :)

When the student loan came in I designated myself a tiny amount of money to have a little splurge
Should get the goodies up soon I guess..
One of my favourite things I've bought recently are these trousers, which I've decided to call my genie pants, hence the post title
 They are seriously some of the comfiest trousers I own and were only £24 from Next, with a £15 giftcard only £9 wahey :D
This is how I wore them to work, super casual to be comfy all day
Striped Top: Topshop
Brown Cardigan: American Eagle
Red 'Genie' Pants: Next
Sand Flats: Next

I've recently rediscovered a few items of make up
One being Benefit's Coralista and now I remember why I love this so much
Perfect amount of colour for natural rosiness
and it smells gorgeous too

Hope everyone had an awesome couple of long weekends

Nail of the day...

O.P.I Bright Lights Big Colour

I let one of my male friends chose this colour...he said orange and this is the closest I had
I'd say it's a golden toned coral shimmer polish
Very summery
2 coats and top coat, very smooth application
Not gritty at all from the shimmery glitter in it
