A little trip I took..

A few months ago myself and my best friend began talking about travelling and wanting to see the world and going on little trips. We decided that this summer we'd start our travelling journeys with one another by going to London for a few days. And then my other best friend joined in with our discussion, and before we knew it we were planning a few days there and excitedly talking about what we would do while we were there. And then, our talks about London calmed down and we hadn't mentioned it for a while (mostly due to the crazy amount of uni work we all had), however, one day a couple of months ago we talked about it again, and then a few days later we suddenly had a hotel booked and train tickets ordered. It was happening. We were going, and we were so excited! 

Roll on a couple of months and the day arrived...due to out insane level of excitement, none of us had realised that we had booked to go on Father's day (oops) so we got up early, messaging each other in excitement, rushing around to get ready before heading to the train station. We took our seats and in a matter of minutes we were laughing so hard, and that's how the rest of the journey to London went. We arrived there, went to the hotel and headed to Nando's, because what else do you do when you need to wait three hours before checking in?!? Let's be real here, Nando's was the only option, and it went down a treat. 

After checking in, we headed straight for Covent Garden and wandered around the shops, taking in the sights and smells(despite having eaten Nando's until we felt like we couldn't move, we were left with our mouths watering at the smells of crepes and pies) and people watching. We moved on to Leicester Square, among the hustle and bustle and evening entertainment, went in a few shops and found ourselves making many jokes leaving us crying with laughter. Moving on from there, we headed towards the South bank and walked on the embankment, taking in the lovely views and just having a good old laugh. 

We walked a lot and our feet were hurting us so we decided to grab a bag of sharing doritos and head back to the hotel where we enjoyed our pre bedtime snack. After the exhausting day we'd had we drifted off to sleep(after making our stomachs hurt with laughter) and woke the next morning ready to explore London. 

I'll upload in a few days about our second day in London as these posts are fairly long! But for now, enjoy some of the photos I took from our first day :)

Finished second year of uni!

Well the title says it second year of uni is all over and done with. I can't believe how quick this year has gone, it only seems like two minutes ago since it started! It's crazy that I'm 2/3 of the way through my course already! 
Anyway, now that my essays are all done, all I have to do now is revise for a couple of weeks and then I have my exam, but I am now basically free for a few months! It feels so good! I have so many plans with my family and friends so I can't wait for all my friends to be back so that we can do what we do best: get messy at Welly and Spiders ;) If you're wondering what I'm talking about, then I'll explain...So, Welly and Spiders are two nightclubs in Hull that we go to quite a lot and we love them and often end up in a bit of a state but who cares?! we have so much fun there! I actually went to Welly last night with my best friend and it was hilarious and we celebrated finishing this year of uni with a bang! So yeah, there will be many more nights like this coming up as well as breaks away and holidays and days out and adventures which I cant wait to share with you!

Let me know what plans you have over this half term and the summer!

Essays, essays and more essays..

My life at the moment seems to be focused entirely on one thing: Essays
I have four essays due in all around the same time (one on Friday, the other three all next week), so my days are currently spent on the laptop trying not to go over the word count by too much! It's been a crazy few weeks planning all of these essays and researching and typing them up, but I'm getting there. Earlier today I handed one essay in (finally!), I have another complete and I'm about half way through my third one. So hopefully by next Tuesday I will be essay free for a few months, and along with that, my stress should just drift away...hopefully..
Is anybody else writing essays for university/college/school? If so, I have a little tip: don't try and cram loads of work in each day, just pace yourself out...I usually plan to write between 500 and 700 words a day when doing an essay, that way it keeps me calm(ish) and I feel as though I'm more focused and word things much better!
And have breaks! This is vital and very important! Make sure you have a quick breather for every half an hour of typing you do. Walk away from the laptop/computer, stretch your legs, drink some water...get a bit of fresh air for a few minutes! A few minutes of space can really help you when writing essays, so make sure you don't over exert yourself because it will just make you tired and then your focus will fly out of the window!

I've basically finished my second year at university now so I can relax a little bit more and get started on all the plans I've made! But for now, it's back to writing this essay...I'll be back soon!

It's been a while...'s been a long time since I last made a post and there are quite a few reasons for it, but I'm not going to bore you with all the details. To cut a long story short; I felt as though I wasn't very organised with my blog and at the time I started it, I was applying for uni and things just spiralled out of control and I kind of forgot about it. However, for a while now I've been wanting to start a new one up, but I decided to just re-start this one up and go from there.

So....I am back. I'll be blogging more often from now on, and nothing has changed really..I'll be blogging about essentially everything, although I feel it will be more interesting this time around! So I guess I'll 'speak' soon!

Thanks for reading!

Hey beauties!

I've had a tumblr for quite a while, and I must admit, I am a little bit obsessed with it. I can spend ages on it, reblogging images and quotes, lyrics etc, and I love doing it. I thought I'd share the link to my tumblr; I'd love it if you checked it out!

I hope you like it, please let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading,
