my favourite songs at the moment


I've been listening to these songs an awful lot at the moment. I bought tickets to see Bombay Bicycle Club this morning and I am very much looking forward to seeing them! I saw them at Glastonbury on the Sunday and really enjoyed them so it'll be great to see them again, I can't imagine the weather will be as wonderful as it was then though!

recent things

(The view of Liverpool from it's Big Wheel, another afternoon spent at the docks, yummy creme brulee macchiato from Starbucks, and my new favourite place to grab a snack!)

I've had a lovely but rather busy past few weeks. Both mine and my boyfriend's family came up to visit and it was so nice to see them all. We took each of them out to dinner at The Pumphouse I couldn't recommend it enough, really delicious pub food and puddings! I went on the The Big Wheel, visited the Merseyside Maritime Museum and also did a bit of shopping with my family before they went back, I'm already looking forward to their next visit!
 I've also been kept very busy by uni. I've recently changed part of my course at University and I am now studying European Film and Communication Studies and I love it! I wish I'd changed earlier but I am so glad that I have now, and as I studied Film at A Level I haven't got that much to catch up on. I handed in my first essay as well for Communications and I already have another one to hand in soon. I guess this is a taster of what the next three years are going to be like!
As busy as I have been with seeing family and uni, I have managed to do loads of nice things like cooking (I'm making chilli con carne tonight), win a beer pong tournament, Skype my cat, go to the top of the nearby Anglican church, get tickets to see a few bands I used to really love when I was about 16, drink red wine a lot with my flatmates, and make awesome plans for Halloween.
I really am going to try and post more often on here I think!

wonderful weekend

I went home for the weekend and it was absolutely lovely! Here is my weekend in pictures:

 I had a rather horrible and long journey back to Leicestershire. I listened to The King Blues for the majority of the journey and have come to conclusion that I must see them live!

My friends and I had lunch at Pizza Express and it was great to catch up with them. They're currently applying to university and it felt weird that I was doing exactly the same only a year ago! It feels ages since I used to check track on Ucas everyday without fail!

We all opted for a mini pudding with either a hot chocolate or a cappuccino. I had the semifreddo and it was delicious!

I went out for a drink with my Dad and afterwards he let me borrow this CD.

I'd missed my cats very much so it was very nice to see them and give them lots of cuddles. This is Phoebe.

This is my cat Whisper and we spent lots of quality time together over the weekend, this included activities such as her sitting on my laptop when I was trying to use it and trying to stick her head in my mug of milk. 

I went shopping on Sunday and I picked up a few things. I'd wanted a black pleated skirt for ages and I found a reasonably priced one in H&M. I also bought these shoes from Topshop, after being disappointed that they didn't have a pair in my size we discovered that a mannequin was wearing them in a size six! It's getting incredibly cold in Liverpool so hopefully these tights will keep my legs warm over the next few months, I'm not exactly sure how I'd wear the dark red ones just yet.

Tights from New Look.

These shoes are so comfy, I wore them on my journey home today and they were the perfect choice of footwear I think.

My current mascara is Bad Gal Lash Mascara by Benefit and it has just run out and being a student I can no longer afford such luxuries (sorry short eyelashes) so I bought this one by Maybelline. I also bought a Carmex lip balm.

I acquired a variety of treats over this weekend, Dairy Milk Whole Nut is my favourite chocolate. I'm looking forward to trying the Jelly Squirms!

I hope everyone else had nice weekends too!

I've recently moved to Liverpool to study Communications, Media, and Popular Music at The University of Liverpool and I absolutely love it here. All my flatmates are very nice and all have very good taste in films! We watched Fight Club the other night and after studying it for my A Level Film Studies exam it was fun to watch it without having to constantly analyse it.
With my boyfriend only living a 40 minute walk away, I haven't felt too homesick. We've cooked some really good meals together over the past week (spaghetti bolognese, shepherds pie, steak, bangers and stilton mash, and a curry) so I feel like I've been eating quite well here. I enjoy cooking and tonight I'm going to attempt a spicy vegetable pasta bake!
The weather has been bizarrely boiling over the past few days so I have spent as much time as I can down at the docks with my boyfriend, it's so lovely there. I don't have any lectures or seminars on a Monday so I've had a nice relaxing day and caught up on all my homework!
