For a nail-biter like myself, finally getting the chance to paint my nails properly is kind of a big deal.
Being a new graduate - chuffff (see last post), I thought I’d take the time to sit down and go through some important (non-academic) things that I’ve learned at university.
I absolutely despise the word ‘haul’, but there really is no other word the correctly describes the sheer amount of boxes and bags the postman handed me this morning.
As I said in my last post, I went a bit crazy this payday. I’ve been in need of a summer wardrobe upgrade for absolutely ages, and since I’m finished uni and nearing graduation, I decided to treat myself.
Last week of the month can only mean one thing. Pay day. I have spent a lot more money than I probably should’ve over the past month, playing for trips away, graduation preparations, festivals, that sort of thing. So much so that a lot of the basic things I would normally buy with my leftover cash, have gone unfulfilled.
This month however, when I got paid, I was straight online shopping for all of the things I’ve wanted, but haven’t been able to get, this past month!
First on the list, make up.
I’m not normally known to branch out with my makeup, both brand-wise, and technique-wise, but I thought I’d take the plunge.
I normally buy my makeup on the high street, but have been wanting to try out Feel Unique for quite some time, as who doesn’t love a service that completely limits your human contact?
Okay, this one’s a pretty long one. Granted. If you’ll recall, last month’s playlist was 10 tracks maximum, this one’s a good 23. Nevertheless, there has been a lot of good music this month, that I’ve been dying to share.
I’m not going to babble on about all of them, I’ll really just let the music speak for itself (corny). But, here are the highlights.
Happy Monday, everyone!
Mondays are a bit of a pain in the arse for most people, but over the last year or so, they’ve fast become my favourite day of the week. Last semester at uni, Mondays were my day off, and since I work pretty much exclusively late shifts on weekends, Monday is now the Sunday that I didn’t get!
Anyway, this is what I’ve been up to this week.
Today I’m talking sport, food, entertainment, and all around family fun, in the form of Lane7 Boutique Bowling Alley in Newcastle.
