One evening before a night out I went to a friends room, saw her using the Naked palette and naturally ooh’d and aah’d allll over it. I told her that I hadn’t quite taken the leap yet to go out and splurge on a Naked palette and had actually instead bought the MUA dupe, but she assured me that is was truly worth the money. She’s never gone back to any other palette. A month passes and my birthday rolls by, a group of my friends put their money together to get me a House of Fraser giftcard (too cute – surprised me in our hall’s canteen at 12am on my birthday with a card, present and cake), and in the card I was specifically ordered to go out and get myself a Naked palette.
There was a three month period last year where I suddenly became obsessed with healthy eating and exercise. I would exercise everyday, even if it was just for a small amount of time and it got me to a point where I actually felt fine whacking out a bikini on holiday. It’s safe to say since that holiday I have slacked, my every day exercising stopped, and living in Central where there’s a McDonalds, Burger King or Subway literally around every corner, I’ve definitely lost all the fitness I gained around that time. Buttttttttt, I am hoping to get back on it now! Yesterday was my first ‘cheat day’ since I’ve hopped back on to this healthier routine – a BBQ.
Last week was my older brother’s graduation day; it’s crazy to think that in two years I will (hopefully) be following in his foot steps. I’ve always kind of looked at the day I start in a full time job as the end of my life. I definitely feel grown up now, living away from home and all that good stuff, but I don’t think anything is as grown up as a full time, Monday – Friday job where you only get 25 days of holiday. So really I’m just going to try and truly, truly enjoy these last two years in university whilst I can.
I’ve had my camera since Winter last year and I’ve only just discovered that there more settings to it than the usual flash or no flash options. I’ve been thinking all along that it was the most basic of digital cameras, but whilst playing around with it yesterday I was pretty shocked to learn that it can not only film videos, but has tonssss of settings that will hopefully allow me to now take better quality photos!
What’s this? I’ve actually gone and taken some outfit of the day photos outside my room?
You may have noticed I’ve been updating more recently, have switched up the blog layout and have edited a few pages here and there. I really am working on increasing the quality of this blog and one way I want to do that is by taking slightly more exciting outfit photos (at least every now and again, my bedroom photos will remain haha). These photos were slightly awkward as it was my first time being photographed by someone for an outfit post (I usually just use my trusty tripod). Sieving through the photos afterwards – most of them I hated (hence there being only three photos, two where my face is conveniently cut off); but I do want to do more of these types of photos so lets hope my awkwardness subsides over time.
