How To | Survive University (+ University Tag)

Yes I know, this post is pretty late considering Freshers week is now well and truly over and all the new students have most likely settled in... But still, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to write a University post since now that I'm in third year I like to think that I have experienced enough to pass on a little bit of advice! So yeah, I decided to write a post sharing some tips about university that I thought were quite important to pass on, not only to the new freshers but also to anyone, whether you're in third year or thinking of going to uni in a few years. I also did a little University tag that was created by the lovely Alice Thorpe, aka ohhitsonlyalice (who's University videos I have been obsessing over recently - so if you're in the mood for some more University advice or vlogs that show a typical day at University definitely check out her YouTube channel here! Or you can check out her answers to the questions here!) I hope you find these tips helpful, if you think I've missed anything important feel free to comment down below and if you're a new student let me know if you're enjoying university so far!

September Favourites

I say it every month, but honestly September has been and gone in a complete blur! Like, where did it actually go!? I had to honestly double check to make sure I wasn't actually supposed to be writing my August favourites instead... I've moved house, started uni and now I'm starting to get back into the swing of things with blogging again and I'm so excited for things to get back into a relaxed routine like it was months ago, haha! I honestly haven't had much time to sort out what my favourites are this month (but let's be honest, when do I ever plan my favourites in!) and I've obviously done a lot of homeware shopping for the new house, so I haven't really bought or loved anything else this month. Speaking of which, if you're interested in seeing more homeware bits and bobs let me know and I'll do a homeware haul of some kind, probably featuring a lot of autumnal bits as I am definitely now starting to get into autumn and everything burgundy and orange and cinnamon and pumpkin!! Anywho, here is my very very last minute September favourites, I hope you enjoy and let me know what your favourites are this month down in the comments!! Oh! Also! Apologies if the quality of the pictures looks any different, new house and new lighting definitely took its toll.. also I have a new editing programme so I don't know what that's like... also, I think I messed around with the settings on my camera.. so yeah! Let me know what you think, haha!

Update #9 | Saying Goodbye To My First House

First up, yes I am back again. Ugh, the struggle has well and truly been real. I'm hoping I'm now back for good though, since I now have my new laptop and every actually seems to be working for once!! Just know that you can definitely expect more posts from now on, if not every other day! Yay, that makes me so excited - I've genuinely missed the blogging life so so much! I am also back at uni tomorrow though so we'll see how excited I am once the reality of coursework and the dreaded 'd word' (dissertation!!!) sets in! But yeah anyway, it happened, I finally moved house! I've actually been moved for a few weeks now (it's a long, boring story that's consists of one broken computer and one empty bank account!!) and I'm definitely still unpacking all of these bloody boxes that just never seem to end! Everything is starting to have a home though and stress levels are gradually decreasing, thank God for that!

Update #8 | Cornwall Holiday Snaps

I genuinely just let out a huge sigh before I started writing this post; two weeks ago I was sitting out in the Cornish sunshine with a glass of wine and here I am back home surrounded by cardboard boxes after a long day of work.. I am having serious holiday blues. I guess it's mainly because now I know that summer is pretty much over and it's time to go back to the boring stuff like work and uni.. ugh, oh well - at least I get to break out the spiced scented candles and winter coats soon! But yes, I really did have an amazing and relaxing week away in the sunshine with my lovely family and I wanted to share a few of the many many pictures I took whilst I was away and give you a little snippet into my week! Also, if you missed my last post and want to know what else I got up to this summer click here - I promise there will be cute kittens... I'm not even kidding, haha! Now if that hasn't gotten you interested I don't know what will!

Update #7 | Candyfloss, Cats & Cocktail Sausages

I've actually had such a good summer, despite the stress - the weather has been amazing and I've finally got a bit of a tan, woo! I'm definitely starting to get the uni blues again and I'm in denial that I have to go back to referencing and lectures in a few weeks so I thought now would be a good time to reflect; and since I've always loved reading 'my summer in photos' posts I thought I would do one big update post for a few of my favourite things that I got up to this summer! Although I didn't take as many photos as I would've liked to, I had some really beautiful and enjoyable days out in the sunshine and as I promised in my last post there are a fair few pictures of cute kittens.. so that makes up for it right?! Let me know in the comments some of your favourite things that you got up to this summer as I would love to know and I hope you enjoy these cute and also really cringey pictures from my summer!
