Anyone who knows me will know that I am a total Friends addict. So when I saw that there was such thing as Friends Fest and it was coming to OXFORD I could not pass up the opportunity to go. No way. So I invited the lovely Heather of heatherlerrynphotography.com to accompany me as I knew she was as obsessed as I am!
So I have finished my first year at university! I definitely had some ups and downs and things I wished I was prepared for, so I thought I’d share a few things I’ve learned already!
It’s finally my 20th birthday in a couple of days time! I have definitely learned a lot in 2 decades of life, through lots of ups and downs and experiences. So here are 20 things I’ve realised so far and need to keep reminding myself of!
As soon as I returned from the South of France, I was lucky enough to be jetting off on another summer holiday, this time with my boyfriend! We travelled to Tenerife last year and thought we’d book a holiday to another Canary Island this year as we loved it so much there!
A summer break was exactly what I needed after my first year of university! I visited my lovely friend from uni in the South of France where I had a lovely week in the sun, of course had some amazing food and visited some beautiful places!
River Island are KILLING IT with their holiday style at the moment! I love treating myself to something from River Island every now and again. Emphasis on the word ‘treat’ because it’s definitely not the cheapest of clothes shops but the quality is so high and I love some of their statement pieces.
I recently worked as a catering and events assistant for a couple of weddings at the most beautiful venue in Oxfordshire. As I am studying event management at university, pretty venues make me very happy. I had been told this was a high end and exclusive wedding location and I couldn’t wait to visit.
I know I get a little peckish between meal times and I’m sure many of us do! I know I also end up snacking if I’m bored doing essays at uni, but snacking doesn’t always have to be unhealthy or something you might regret! I’ve made a list of some of the snacks I reach for if I want to satisfy that little bit of hunger. Or boredom…
A few days ago, I was invited by the lovely Heather from heatherlerrynphotography.com to attend the book launch of Freedom Seeker by Beth Kempton. I had never heard of this book before so I did a little research and it looked amazing!
I went shopping around Valentines Day and I was desperately looking for a good quality foundation that didn’t make my face look orange. I have fairly pale skin and struggle to find a foundation that doesn’t make me look like a satsuma. This is the issue with buying foundations I find, as even though you test the colour on the back of your hand in the store, it never seems to look the same when it’s actually on your face. Then you’ve spent the money and there’s no way back.
