Pinterest Post: BEDROOM IDEAS


In February I'm going to be redecorating my room as it hasn't been done for about 6 years and is a little bit 15 year old me and just doesn't suit me anymore. I'm going to be shabby-chic'ing my old furniture and adding some floral decorations to some! These are the colours I'm feeling right now. Really pale greys and creams, with some muted pinks or purples. A really cool toned room with a few subtle splashes of colour. I shall keep you posted on the developments! And if my wardrobe painting goes well I shall blog it!

I've done it, I've finally done it. I bought some Nike SB Janoski's! I've wanted some of these for ages now and I have finally purchased some. They arrived in the post today from Schuh, which might I add, I ordered these Sunday night and were here this morning (Tuesday), I'm so pleased with the postage. I'd recommend buying online from them. I got these beauties for an amazing £38. They should be £60 but as I have the feet of a child I can fit into the youth size, which are a hell of a lot cheaper. They should have been £43 and  with my 10% student discount they were £38, INCLUDING POSTAGE. I am a happy bunny right now.

Pinterest Post: SUIT UP


I'm loving this look right now. Whether it be a full on suit, adding a blazer to a casual outfit, or just pairing some cigarette pants with a cute tee.

Pick The Right Degree For YOU


I started University in September 2014 at Nottingham Trent, after deciding to defer my place a year and do an Art Foundation. I had decided to do a History degree as I had always enjoyed History from a young age. I didn't do it at GCSE as my arty subjects were more my thing then (and still are). I picked Art, Drama, Media and Product Design over picking anything to do with Humanities. But, at A-Level I thought it was time to take my passion for History a little further and do it at A-Level. Truth is, I'm not naturally good at History. Everyone has that one area or subject they are just effortlessly good at, mine seems to be Art/Media/Fashion or performing.

My chosen career path is one involving the media industry whether it be TV presenting, research or working for some kind of fashion/lifestyle magazine. So in reality I probably don't need a specific degree to be doing TV Presenting but I felt that a History degree would grow my passion for History more and make me look like a person who is a good researcher and committed (History takes up a lot of your spare time, trust me)

My first day of uni consisted of people asking me if I was in the wrong room because they thought I was a fashion student. And this just stuck with me. Whenever I get asked what my degree is and I respond with "HISTORY", I just get blank looks and people telling me "Oh really? I'd never thought you'd do that! You look like a more creative person!" And this just bothers me because deep down I know Art/Media and Fashion is what I'm good at but I chose to ignore it as I thought this would be the better degree for my career. I'd been told by somebody in the media industry that doing a degree in either Broadcasting Journalism or TV/Film (Which I had planned on doing) was not taken seriously, and that a subject like History would stand out and is a "proper degree".So I thought, great! I love History. But in reality it's not what I expected. I should have just done a degree in something I really do have a passion for and that isn't a chore. History is a chore to me now, and that should not be the case when I am doing a degree in it(and spending a shit load of money on it). I should be excited to go to lectures and discover more about the world but I hate it. The only essay I have enjoyed writing so far has been a Media based one, about History in the film industry. I find myself sat in lectures trawling through fashion blogs, finding internships for MTV or drawing on my notebook instead of taking notes. I should be excited. I decided to write this blog post to tell people to ignore doing a degree they think "looks better" or is a "proper degree" or that someone wants them to do (i.e parents).

In my opinion, a degree is a degree. It shows you have spent 3/4 years of your life studying and working hard on a subject you love. People should just be able to pick whatever they want to do, whatever makes them happy. And this is something I wish I had done. It's constantly on my mind as to whether I should switch courses, and to be honest if I could right now I would, but then there's the voice in the back of my mind telling me to stick at it.This is also why I created this blog. I needed somewhere I could write about what interests me and write for enjoyment, not because I have to.

Sorry for the personal rant,
