OOTD // Hudson Taylor at the Kings Cross St Pancras Renaissance Hotel

Last night I was ever so lucky to win tickets to see Hudson Taylor live at The St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London as a warm up to their set at Glastonbury today. I've been a fan of Hud Tay for at least two years now and have never had the chance to see them. I'm so glad that I have finally had the opportunity - they were absolutely fantastic live!

My third instalment of my weekly posts: Wishlist Wednesdays (I know I've taken this alliteration thing too far!)

I'm going on holiday in a little over a month and am in desperate need of some new swimwear. I'm not the smallest girl in the world and so do not want a skimpy bikini that would leave absolutely nothing to the imagination. That lead me on a hunt looking for as many swimsuits and high waisted bikinis (that aren't ridiculously expensive or horrifically frumpy). I had to look at ASOS and managed to add almost £200 of swimwear to my basket. How am I going to choose?!

MUSIC // Ed Sheeran - Multiply review

Today Ed Sheeran's new album was released! I've been waiting for it for absolutely ages and recently have definitely been keeping up to date with the new tracks as he has released them. I finally got my paws on the album this afternoon (before listening to it on Spotify all morning) so here is my review for Music Monday!

In short: 4/5 stars

READ // Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Introducing part 2 of my weekly posts: review friday! Every friday I'll upload a review of some sort. This week - Life As We Know It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Now I've finally finished university for the year I have time to read again (when I'm not working!) This is the first book that I have read this summer and it was okay. Sure, it wasn't the best book to start the summer with but it was worth a read.

In short: 3/5 stars

Company Style Blogger Awards

Last night I went to the Company Style Blogger Awards in London in association with Missguided. It was a really lovely night and, not gonna lie , I really want to go again!

OOTD // Walking the Norwich lanes

On Thursday I popped up to Norwich with Hannah (who I hadn't seen for ages!) It was such a lovely day, showing her around Norwich. It is crazy how I've lived there for 2 years and still have seen so little. Shopping definitely happened and a post for that will be uploaded soon!

Introducing: Music Monday

Hey y'all (yes, I went there).
I've decided I want to post much more regularly than I have been. Therefore, I am introducing three weekly posts this week starting with MUSIC MONDAY. I absolutely love making playlists (I think one of my dream jobs may be being a Radio 1 DJ) and I've made a few playlists in the past so now it's time to make this a weekly thing!

Hope you enjoy!

OOTD // Leather in london

Hello there! I've had such a busy week this week and I hope the summer stays just like it! I popped into London on Wednesday to see QI being filmed (after being told it was postponed from the Tuesday - what a nuisance!). After a lot of rearranging I eventually made it (and got within the first 10 people due to the others seeing Loose Women first. Brilliant!)

Goodness Gracious....

I'm going to miss Norwich.
I was so lucky to get a place at UEA two years ago and now there is quite a high (well kind of) chance that I will be spending next year in Canada, studying at UBC. Although both universities have abbreviations of three letters I know that it is going to be a huge change if I do go. I'll have really moved out...well moved country! I cannot just pop home for the weekend if I want to go see my cat or it's my friend's birthday. It's crazy to think that in three months time I'll be living over 8 hours away by plane.

Anyway, on my final day in Norwich me and the girls decided to wander about the lanes and have a cup of tea. There is no better way to go out in style than with vintage tea pots and freshly baked victoria sponge cake if I do say so myself.

Time flies when you're having fun....

Well, I wouldn't exactly say the past three months have been fun. I looked at my blog for the first time since April today and was astounded/gobsmacked/disgusted/surprised/any other adjective that I hadn't blogged at all. To be fair, my exam season was tremendously long this year. After 10 lab reports, 3 assessments and a course test I still had 5 exams to revise for during April, May and June (and that's just second semester!) However, I am finally free from exams (well I'm revising some physical in case of a resit) and I really want to get back into blogging. The weather is lovely and I'm just so busy right now with driving, work and the other commitments I've somehow made along the way that I feel like I finally have things to talk about.

It's crazy what a bit of good weather will do to a girl.

So now, I'm starting again with this whole blogging malarkey. I'm currently organising certain weekly posts and how I'm going to do outfit posts and what I really want to talk about. My first real post is coming today and I just can't wait to get back into blogging. I have the whole summer ahead of me...what could go wrong?
