As you can see from the background in the photos below – I’m homeeee. I came home this weekend for my mum’s birthday and we all went out for a cute lilll family meal. This post completely mirrors another I wrote around the same time last year here, I remember at the time feeling so weird coming back home for the first time and sleeping in my own bed again, but now after being back and forth between uni and home for a whole year, this feels very natural. So much has changed between the time I wrote that post last year and now, I feel like a completely different person. I’m sure I’ll be doing a similar post next year, so it’ll be interesting to see how different things are then.
My absence can be blamed on the following three reasons: the internet, Virgin Media and general busy-ness. I moved into my new uni flat about two weeks ago, our internet was set up literally a day after visiting Virgin Media and everything was peachy. But then, a week into having our internet, it completely disappeared off of the radar. Calling Virgin Media, they said that we did not ‘activate’ our internet (even though we did), and that we’d have to wait another 7 days for them to activate it for us due to issues with the previous tenants. To say I was annoyed AND heartbroken is an understatement (it also took 8 days, instead of the 7 they said it would take). I don’t think you realise how vital the internet is until you don’t have it… those 8 days were spent in between Starbucks and our university campus, lugging my laptop around with me everywhere, doing what I needed to do and downloading as many shows and YouTube videos I possibly could to watch at the flat.
As we enter into the colder months, we’re all looking at updating our wardrobes to keep us warm over the holiday season. One area that we often overlook however is our home décor. If you want to give your bedroom a new lease of life, why not try out a few of these little treats for autumn 2014?
This month is Organic September – a month to celebrate all things organic. Not too long ago I received an e-mail from Green People asking if I’d be interested in trying out some of their certified organic products for Organic September, and I decided to try out their “Organic Skin Polish Pack” which comes equipped with a vitamin face mask and a fruit scrub exfoliator.
Recently, I’ve become so bored with my hair and have been weighing up many different options for a new look for autumn. I’ve considered all ends of the spectrum from a cut, to an all over deep red dye. A little while ago I picked up some BBlonde bleach, tried to apply it evenly to my hair to lighten it, and it came out looking more like highlights, except these highlights were actually barely noticeable. I decided the other day I was going to take the plunge and attempt to ombre my hair…
