I’m really feeling a haircut. My hair has gotten quite long and it’s nice, but it’s just too much work! My hair wants to dreadlock itself to be honest, so annoying! So tempted by a long bob, think I might have to go for it sometime soon.

Lately me and my fiancé have been so ill- coughing, wheezing, nose blowing kind of ill. It sucks, especially when I had to take two days off college for it. On the upside, one of those days was my boo's toenail surgery which was fun. Maybe not for him since, ya know, he was the one getting his big toenails pulled out, but it really was quite interesting to watch! Anyway, enough with the toe talk!
College has been going so well. Like, SO well. Never in my life have I been so motivated or interested in going to school and it feels like I've finally found what I'm supposed to be doing, which is so amazing for me. My mental illness is still prevalent, more so recently than before, but I think I'm handling it ok. I've got an appointment with a counsellor soon, which I think is going to be a really positive step forward for me. It just feels nice to not feel like a complete and utter fuck up, you know? Anyway, my courses are amazing and I'm so happy I decided to do A Levels. If you don't know, I'm doing Sociology, Government & Politics and Religious Studies. They all mesh really well together, and all of my tutors are really good. I'm super happy with it!
That's enough rambling for today though! Thanks for reading if you did!
Here's an unrelated picture of a meal from Shake Shack from when my mum visited me from Norway.
As you can see, there's quite a few bits I've got my peepers on. And yes I'm into stripes at the moment? Idk. I only own one striped top myself, and as it's one of those "fat people" rules to avoid horizontal stripes, I want more stripes cause fuck it. Anywho, this is just a quick post, mainly because I don't have much to blog about at the moment haha. Thanks for reading x
I just got these amazing platform Vans the other day, and they are amazing! I have a pair like these already that aren't platforms, but I've worn a hole in the sole so bad it reaches my foot. You may be able to imagine how wet my feet got when it rained, haha.
So enough was enough! Platform it was! They are so comfy; because of the thick sole, it feels like you're walking on cake haha.
I'm in love, they're amazing.
Well... here's to my first two days at college being over! Woo! Tomorrow I start my actual lessons; yesterday and today were just enrolment and induction. Boring days but necessary, so good to get it out of the way. I'm lucky, as I'm only in for two hours tomorrow, so will be a nice, gradual start for me!
(Don't have any current pics, so have a throwback of me and my boo.)
For anyone wondering, I'm doing my AS Levels this year, then A2 next year. I'm on Religious Studies, English Literature & Language and Sociology. They're all subjects I'm interested in, and I think they'll be useful to me in the future. Especially if I ending up going to university like I plan to.
I'm feeling pretty confident about this whole college thing. A hell of a lot more than I did last time I went, for hairdressing. There's a whole different vibe with AS courses, which I'm really digging.
Anyway, I better go. Early start tomorrow!
Yesterday, me and my boo decided to upgrade or bedroom a little bit. Well, I decided, and he went along with it haha. It was long overdue though, our bedroom has looked to drab and bleugh since we moved in 4 months ago!
I bought these prints from an amazingly talented guy, who you can find here.
They're just our style, and go really well with our black & white colour scheme. We put them up with hanging strips instead of nails, as we're renting. The lamp is from B&Q, and the sheets are from Primark. In case you were wondering haha.
Gorgeous, aren't they? Hope to be tattooed by this guy some day.
That's all for today. Thanks for reading!
Hi! So today I went and got all the things I need for school! Pretty exciting. I love stationary, so safe to say I had a field day today. Can we just talk about how annoying it is to find school supplies if you're not 12? So much of the stuff I found was covered in emojis or cats... I'm coming up to 20, not really my style lol. Regardless, I found some pretty nice stuff, as neutral as I could haha.
All the stationary is from Tiger and Tesco, pencil case is WH Smith, rucksack from Tesco, and the t-shirts are from the men's section in Primark. T-shirts aren't exactly school supplies, but hey, needed some basics for going back to school! That's the excuse anyway.
Thanks for reading!
(P.S. Please pardon my awful pictures.)
Hi! So today something pretty damn sweet happened; I got into college! I'm going to be doing 3 AS Levels- English Language & Literature, Religious Studies and Sociology. I am so excited. It's kind of a secret I've kept to myself until now, (only my mum and fiancée knew) so it feels good that it's all official. I'm so excited to start learning again, and try and kick my mental illness' arse a bit. It's honestly about terrifying, but I've just got to give it a go. Don't want to let myself be held back anymore.
Kind of weird to think that I started this blog just over two years ago, when I was about to move to Wales and start college for hairdressing. Yet here I am two years later; living with my fiancée, had two jobs, left college, supported myself and developed an awful Starbucks habit. Good times :)
Enough rambling from me. Just wanted to get this all out while the emotions are still fresh in my brain.

So, I'm engaged! My partner proposed to me on Christmas Day last year, and we're hoping to tie the knot by the end of next year. We've been gradually planning things, mostly just deciding on our theme and what not, what kind of decorations etc. Pinterest has been a huge help for this, and that's what I'm here to share today! A little moodboard, if you will, of some wedding inspo!
That's all for now. I'd like to keep posting about wedding-y things as time goes on, especially when we start planning and booking things properly. Saying that I've already bought my gorgeous wedding dress, but that's for another day haha.
