Hi everyone! I apologise for the lack of posts recently but I had two essays due in for the taught component of my masters so I’ve been a bit busy getting those done! Hopefully you’ve seen me around on Twitter though – unfortunately I wasn’t able to resist the lures of scrolling through my Twitter feed!
So the taught component of my masters is over, and now I have until October (or January if I take the free extension) to do my dissertation. I will let you know how I get on with that with updates from time to time. Would anyone who’s considering doing a masters after their undergraduate degree like to see a post about the differences?
I have a couple of events and products that I want to blog about this week, so there will be lots of lovely new posts to sink your teeth in to. I’ve also got a giveaway coming up so if you’re going on holiday this year you might want to keep an eye out for that!
I’ve got a really good couple of months ahead of me, lots of events planned and things! Tomorrow I’m hosting a Macmillan Night In with my mum, which a few companies have kindly donated gifts for so I will be doing a post on that and letting you know how much we raise! The aim is £100 but hopefully we will get more!
I’m headed to an event by Oriflame on Saturday in Leeds, I haven’t travelled to Leeds by train before so I’m slightly nervous but I’m sure I will be fine! I will be there again at the end of May too for the Leeds May Meet, as well as an event called House of Fashion. I’ve also got a Pandora eventand a Laundry Boutique event in my calender, I love having a packed diary!
Finally, my dad and my stepmum have finally adopted two lovely girls who I am enjoying getting to know, one of them has her birthday on Tuesday so I’m excited to spend it with them. I am thinking of doing a post on adoption from a siblings point of view!
Sorry for the long winded post with no pictures but I wanted to let you know what I had going on recently and coming up, I’ve missed blogging! What has been going on in your life?
I thought I’d kick this week off with a tag post, why not eh? I’ve had this one saved for a while, and as I’m currently half way through a lovely 4 days off spent with my boyfriend, it’s perfect timing.
Firstly, a little about him. My lovely boyfriend of nearly 5 and a half years now is called Christopher O’Neill, he has a degree in media production which he isn’t using any time soon and he wants to be a teacher. I am trying to persuade him to start his own blog at the minute and was thinking of starting off with him doing a fortnightly post on here. Let me know what your thoughts are on this!
Before I got picked up last Wednesday for the Paul Mitchell event I talked about in my last post I spent a few hours in Starbucks with a caramel macchiato, doing some reading for my masters. I’ve not been taking my iPad 2 out and about with me recently because the case I was using was pretty knackered and I didn’t want to risk breaking it. However, last week I received my new iPad case* from Mr Nutcase.
I apologise for the lack of book related post yesterday! I had it all written up but forgot to schedule it… Oops! Here it is now for you though.
Lectures for my masters finished last week, and I had missed a few down to health problems. This had meant the past few weeks I’ve been concentrating on writing up lecture notes and getting prepared for assignments, in the times I would usually spend reading. So instead of a book review today I thought I’d show you the books which are on my reading list at the minute!
The Bloggers Snail Mail is another box swap I did this month, organised by Gemma of Lipsticks and Lashes. We were paired up with another blogger and after a month of getting to know each other we had to send a box of little treats up to the value of £5. I have to say though it was tricky sticking to the budget!
Happy Monday everyone, hope your week has gotten off to a good start! I am hoping that the start of this week goes better for me than the start of last week did, however things are already looking a bit dreary!
My dog Bailey has popped up a few times on my blog so far, but today he is getting his very own post!
