I Got into University !

Hey everyone ! ūüôā

So as you can probably gather from the¬† Title…I GOT INTO UNIVERSITY !! Wooohoooooo. I cant believe I did it. I was looking at apprenticeships before my results even came out as I was sure that I would not get in.

So in September I’m off to do a Television Production degree and I’m buzzing ! I’m so excited ! Although I have so much to sort out its crazy. I literally haven’t bought any of my stuff for Uni as I didn’t even know I was going ! so I have a month to sort it all out which is a bit stressful haha. But Oh well ,I’m sure that I will get everything sorted in time.

But I will also admit . I’m so nervous ! Not about looking after myself though. I know that I can. I can cook, clean, budget and I’m very responsible. No, I’m worried about the home sickness, and loneliness. Particularly my little brother. He’s only 7 and I’m fiercely Protective of him. I’m worried that because he is so young that if I don’t see him for long periods of time , we will lose that special relationship. But there is always Skype I suppose, and I’m only 2 1/2 hours drive away so you can go there and back in a day.

So expect a Uni home ware and kitchen¬†haul coming soon hah…you have been warned ūüėČ

And I hope that you all had a fab results day ! lots of love xxx

Festival Fun Times…Hopefully

Boardmasters_Festival-Surf-Music-017-credit_Callum_Morse

Hey everyone !

Tomorrow I head off to Bordmasters which is¬†a music festival in down in Cornwall, and so far everything is going smoothly…no sign of rain in the forecast¬†for this weekend….iv got my tickets…im going with four of my best girls friends….there’s just one problem. I HATE CAMPING. I know you’re probably wondering why I even decided to go on this trip, as I will be camping for 4 nights. Well when September rolls around we will all be going our separate ways and will not see each other very often. So this is one last chance for us to all go and have a good time.

But I’m planning to make the camping part as bearable as possible by making it as cosy and comfy as possible. we are sharing two tents between the 5 of us, a tent of 3 and a tent of 2. I’m in the tent of 3, and we have decided as well to draw on and decorate the outside of the tent as well which should be fun.

I get home on the Monday and then 3 days later is results day ! eek ! I’ll update you either on results day or the day after on how both Boardmasters and Results day went .

see you then ! xxx

 

How to Survive Results Day

Strawberry-results-day-blog-1200x675

A little while back I made a blog post entitled How to Survive Exams. So as a continuation of that I thought I would write about how to survive results day.

Just writing about results day is giving me butterflies haha. Is that a little sad ? probably. But with it looming around the corner I’ve found myself thinking more and more about it. What will my grades be ? will I go to university? will I get an apprenticeship ?¬†will my family be proud of me ? will I be proud of myself ? But here is some of my advice for you (and myself) on how to get through it.

Get some sleep the night before

I know from experience that this can be a hard one. When I’m nervous I don’t sleep. But if you are tired then you will be less able to function correctly and on results day, especially for A levels you need to be able to make smart decisions. For example if I do by some miracle get into my first choice uni then I still have to book accommodation and pay deposits. If I don’t get in there are many decisions I will have to face. Like potentially going through clearing, or deciding not to go at all, or even undergoing the task of cancelling student loans. All of which I will need to be well rested for.

Maybe go without your friends and meet them later 

Going with friends can add extra pressure and concerns. I always used to worry about if my grades would be so much worse than everyone else. Also I was less able to show my emotions. I’m one of these people that if I want to cry , I hold it in entil I am in private. Equally if I am happy with my results I’m gonna want to shout it from the rooftops and allow myself to be happy. However when you’re with a friend who is upset about their results, you cant exactly act like you won the lottery. You end up having to down play your achievements and look after the other person. Which of course I would always want to comfort and look after my friend, which is actually what I ended up doing on AS results day. But still it kind of means I cant be proud of myself as that could be seen as rubbing it in to everyone else.

Grades don’t define you and have a back up plan

And remember even if it all goes wrong its not the end of the world ! I know it can feel like it at the time but as one door closes ,another opens. Take my friend that I mentioned earlier. She revised and worked like a trooper and yet on AS results day found that she had not achieved grades that allowed her to continue with A levels. However she is now doing a Btec in Health and social care and has realised that she wants to go into nursing ! if she hadn’t failed her AS levels she would never have discovered her passion !

I hope that this helps anyone who’s having kittens over results day like me ! do you have any ways of dealing with results day? if so leave them in the comments ! I would love to hear them and we can all support each other ūüôā

I wish you all lots of love and luck xxx

 

 

A Trip to Primark

DSC_0126

Good morning/ afternoon/ evening lovelies

I went on a bit of a road trip with my Dad and Sister the other day and found my self in the middle of a 4 story Primark !!! My excitement was uncontrollable haha. So I thought I would show you what I bought, seen as Primark is beginning to slowly but surely swap out the strappy tops and flip flops for warmer clothes, marking the approach of the colder months !!

DSC_0127This cosy sweatshirt was definitely the best bargain  I bagged as it was only £2 in the sale section !! I was actually looking for something like this to take to a festival I am going to in a week. As I am going to be camping I wanted something warm, cosy and comfortable to throw on in the evenings or if I got a bit chilly.

This top will also be ideal in the colder months for just wearing around the house, so this will be added to my collection of comfy chill out cloths haha.

This Jumper is just perfect. I find that with most jumpers I have to wear a top underneath as the woollen material, although warm, is very itchy and irritating on my skin. However the material on this jumper is quite smooth and not scratchy at all ! I can wear this without a top underneath no problem.

Its slightly cropped at the bottom, but not enough that my stomach is showing. If I wear high wasted jeans with it then my stomach stays warm ! haha

Again this skirt was definitely a savvy buy in terms of price ! I had been looking at buying a skirt like this for ages. And one my friends own an almost identical skirt from new look for Twenty something pounds. I got mine….drum roll please…. for ¬£8 !!! so I am chuffed to bits with this purchase.

And I could get away with this skirt all year round. Im thinking add a jumper tucked in at the waist , black woollen tights and boots In the autumn/winter. Then wear it with a crop top and converse or vans in the summer ?

 

 

Finally I picked up a pair of these black Chelsea boots. I actually bought this exact pair of boots last year from Primark and they quickly became my go to shoes. However I wore them so much through out the year that eventually the sole ended up separating from the boot itself ! But considering I wore them constantly, and I mean like 5 or 6 out of the 7 days in the week in all weather and terrain they did me well. So I decided to pick up another pair for this year. If you’re interested I actually got them from the children’s section as I have size 5 feet and that’s the size shoe that the kids section in Primark goes up to.

I hope you enjoyed this little haul , I’ll see you next time ! xxx
