bits and bobs

After having a fairly productive morning of handing an essay in and taking out books for another essay, I decided to have a wander into town. As you can see from the picture above, I treated myself to a few bits and bobs! I've been in need of a new foundation for a while and I finally settled on Clinique's Even Better Makeup. I then picked up the MUA Heaven and Earth eye palette from Superdrug, I've wanted it for quite a while! I'm not very experimental when it comes to eyeshadow so this palette contains the perfect everyday colours for me. Boots are currently running a 3 for 2 offer across loads of different brands and I chose the following things: Real Techniques Core Collection, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, and a Model's Own nail varnish in Utopia. The sunglasses are only £3.99 from H&M and I really do like them, I think I need a second opinion as to whether they really suit me though! I spent far too much money this morning but I felt like treating myself, also when I got home I ended up buying a Nars blush in Deep Throat!! I'm trying to convince myself not to feel too guilty about it as I bought it for about only £17!
Speaking of spending EVEN more money, on Thursday I managed to buy tickets for myself and my boyfriend to see Regina Spektor play at the Royal Albert Hall in London. How cool is that?!? I've been a big fan of her's for a while so I am beyond excited to finally see her live! I'm actually off to a gig tomorrow evening with my younger sister. Her and my dad are arriving in Liverpool at about lunchtime so we get to spend some time shopping together and I think we'll go out for dinner before the gig. We're going to see a couple of bands that I used to really like when I was about 15/16 so I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun.
I'm really looking forward to this weekend and then I get to go home on Monday and see my cats, hooray!

instagram update #3

 Nacho's from Barburrito, Wu-Tang t-shirt from Glastonbury, Chris (Simpson's Artist) replied to me!
 Urbanears, Tom bought me doughnut back from Manchester, pi's
 My friend came to visit me and we had a fun night out, so excited to see Say Anything, caramel macchiato
 New necklace from Cutie Pie, pizza for only £1, my cat being all cute when I went home at the weekend
Fred Perry, essay writing, one of my favourite drinks
Gave into my Subway cravings, clutch I got for only £5 from a new vintage shop in Harborough, what I wore today

I've not done one of these instagram posts in over a month! The collection of photo's might look like I've had a rather dull month, mainly filled with food, but it's been really great. I go home in about a week for the Easter holidays and I really can't wait. I actually did go home at the weekend (it was lovely as always) and I had to say goodbye to my boyfriend for a month. He's studying in China over the next few weeks and I am going to miss him so very much. Just before I left we booked a two week camping holiday in Cornwall and I am so excited for it! We went to the same campsite last year and it's so lovely. St Ive's and Newquay are only bus rides away, it's ten minutes walk to a beach, and it's right opposite a pub that serves fantastic Cornish ales! How brilliant!
I probably won't post again until I'm at home as I have another essay to do this week, boo! Once I get home I have quite a few nice days planned with my friends, I'm sure they'll take my mind off missing Tom too much and also give me some nice things to blog about!

someone who makes me feel seasick

Tom got the pictures developed that we took last Wednesday. For a first attempt with a camera that neither of us know anything about, I think they turned out okay! I look quite squinty in most of them but I'll put that down to it being rather sunny!
In other news, today has been a nice day. I slept for ten hours last night, but when I woke up I think I could have stayed in a bed a bit longer! I only had one lecture today and it was about the modules that I can choose for my second year. So far I'm thinking of studying Media and Gender in the first semester and then either Hollywood Cinema or Documentary in the second one. Exciting stuff! I've not done much today apart from attend that lecture. Tom and I did get a Domino's pizza each for only £1 with the help of a student voucher, so that was pretty good. The rest of my evening will consist of washing my hair and maybe reverting back to my old side parting, drinking my last vanilla FRijj milkshake, and watching HIMYM.

truck stop blues

Last Wednesday I made two new purchases! The print t-shirt was only £4.50 from British Red Cross and I think it will go with loads of items that I already own. For a while I've been wanting an over-sized camel coloured blazer but unfortunately I just can't find one anywhere, so I think this £10 blazer from Ryan Vintage will do the job in the meantime!

i love liverpoool

The weather was glorious on Wednesday so Tom and I decided to spend the afternoon down at the docks. For his birthday, Tom inherited a Canon t70 that hadn't been used in a while so we decided to buy a new roll of film and see if it still worked.

I love this part of Liverpool. Whenever Tom or I have shown our friends or family the docks they have always been very pleasantly surprised and I think they hadn't imaged that Liverpool has this lovely side to it. I couldn't be happier to be going to University in such a wonderful city.
