My watch was less than £2?

I’ve seen several blog posts about the ‘map watch’ that everyone seems to have right now, and I really wanted to get a similar one. I had a look on eBay and found it for only £1.59 with free delivery! They have several other designs, and I fell in love with the butterfly one. You can also choose the watch strap colour from white, black or brown. As it came from China, the watch took a few weeks to arrive, but I don’t mind that – it was only £1.59!  Continue reading

I got a scrapbook!

la-de-dah-1

It seems like everyone and their mum has a scrapbook, and I’m totally following the trend. I’ve wanted a scrapbook for a while, especially since starting University, so I can keep track of my pictures and memories. Project Life is probably the most popular scrapbook right now, but I wanted to get a more customisable / traditional journal-style scrapbook. I’ve been looking for the perfect scrapbook for me, and thanks to Aleelily, I came across La De DahContinue reading

Thoughts at 5am

memories

Sitting here alone in my bedroom back “home” in Devon, I realise how much I’ve changed over the last year. I started my BA in Ancient History in September, and since then, I’ve been on a rollercoaster of emotions and so many life-changing things have happened to me. Although I’m not always happy (like everybody else), I’ve grown up a lot and I feel like I can be myself now.  Continue reading

Wherever I Go

I made a music video!

I’ve been living in London since I started my BA in September, and I love it here. There are so many things going on, so many sites to see, and it’s beautiful. I wanted to capture my experiences of London on camera, and the perfect opportunity arose – Mark Knopfler (from Dire Straits) is running a competition to create a music video for his latest song “Wherever I Go” from his new album.  Continue reading

Woman In Black

First up, I apologise for the crappy iPhone-quality picture! Last night I went to see Woman In Black 2 with my friend, so of course I decided to wear black. I decided to write up a quick outfit of the day post because I actually made an effort and straightened my hair for the first time in forever. This skater dress is from Lipsy a few years ago, and it’s still one of my favourite dresses for going out because it fits so well. I could totally join the Coven from American Horror Story in this outfit…

Anyway, I really enjoyed Woman in Black 2. I still prefer the first film (mainly due to Daniel Radcliffe), but this one was definitely better than I expected. I found it a lot scarier than the first film – at some points I was literally clinging onto my friend for dear life!

My Fairy Lights!

pinboard

Today’s post is about the gorgeous fairy lights that I’m using to decorate the pin-board above my desk at university. Blaze On, an ethical company that sells fairy lights and candles, were kind enough to send me some handmade fairy lights to review. After much deliberation (they have so many beautiful designs), I eventually chose the “Chelsea Rose” ones in the colour “Summer’s Bouquet“, which is a lovely variety of pinks and cream. I got the smaller length, which comes with 20 LED roses – the perfect size to display around my university pin-board. I’ll be doing a post showing all of my bedroom decor soon, so you’ll be able to see how cute these lights look in the room: they match my bedding perfectly.
