Work in progress

So, being as exams are finally over and I'll be moving house (again) for the last time (hopefully) I'm considering filling my long summer with blogging! I've used this blog before to do beauty reviews etc. but didn't really feel like it was me. I love make-up but I wouldn't say I'm an expert and I think it's done so well by so many other girls that there really isn't any need for me to.

So, be prepared for me to get my act together sometime soon with a blog re-design!

You do something to me (Topshop)

Trying very very hard to resist the urge to go to Topshop today!
I'm already in my overdraft and loan day is at the beginning of April I think. I have some returns so I know I wont be able to resist purchasing more, its not real money when its returns right?
Just got a few essays back from marking and pleasantly surprised at how well I'm doing (not bragging, promise) considering I'm not putting in half the effort I should be. The problem with doing a reading based course, like my Literature course, is that by the time youre half way through one book its time to start another and I never manage to do all the reading I should. Most of the time essays are about 2 books and I only manage to read 1, if 4 essays are due at once 4 books seems alot more manageable than 8!
I've promised myself that over the summer I'm going to try and get the whole reading list for my final year (eeeek!) done so it wont be as overwhelming during the year to quickly re-read.
The woes of university are almost over for me, 2nd year has a few weeks left then its a long summer of hopefully getting a summer job and having a few holidays, lat year I found it so difficult to get a summer job! I signed up to loads of agencies for temp work, I tried in all the pubs and retail shops near me - nothing! Hopefully I will have more luck this year what with living in a new area.
If not my boyfriend said he will help me out with money, it sounds spoilt but he cant go on holiday and for nice dinners alone can he?

Weight-ing for the weekend

It's finally nearing the end of my week, I go to Uni Monday, Wednesday & Thursday so tomorrow is like my Friday! I'm going out tonight with a friend to TGI Fridays, obviously I'm having everything smothered in Jack Daniels barbeque sauce. I've been on Weight Watchers for a year this month and have lost 2 stones, I still eat naughty food though. What is life without naughty food? I could have lost the remaining 2 stone I need to lose but I'm really not strict enough with myself and I think life is too short to be strict unless you have a serious problem. I still weigh 12 stone (yes I started at 14 omg) but I'm a size 12 and 5'8 so people are quite shocked when I tell them my weight, thats nice to hear!
Weight & body image is something me and my friends disvuss alot. My opinion is that you should be gratefull and happy with what you have, dont compare yourself with others someone else will always have something about them you want. But they probably feel the same way about you! Confidence really does make you a more beautiful person on the outside and makes you feel better than any lipstick or blusher could. I wouldn't say I'm 100% happy (would love skinnier legs, flatter stomach, thicker hair, bluer eyes...) but I'm 99% happy, and that doesn't make you big headed or full of yourself, you NEED to love yourself... You're going to have to live with yourself for the rest of your life!

Late Update

Oops. So much for a fresh start.
The truth is I always have alot to write about I just never have the time. I'm constantly publishing short snippets of my life on twitter so why is it so much effort to take half an hour and write a potst? After all I.m not expecting anyone to find this blog amusing or interesting, its just my life.
I have moved house since my last post, I now live in a beautiful village in East Hertfordshire, but my Uni is still in west London. Big problem! Driving 25 miles there and 25 miles back is killing me! However at the moment I feel more than commited to my course (literature) I am so in love with it and cannot believe I've only got a year left until its all over. After that its PGCE though so I can teach, haven't decided on primary or secondary yet though I am leaning towards secondary.
The problems with my boyfriends family are pretty much the same, except now he knows. I can't change who I am but I can't really expect the, to change either so as long as things arent too serious (no engagement rings or house keys yet sob) then they dont really have any control over my life, although I'm sure they would like to!
Currently I am patiently waiting for my student loan at the beginning of April so I can go to Lakeside and raid Zara and their amazing refurbished Topshop!
I would imagine now that Im preparing for exams and trying to read a million books posts from me will be pretty rare but it might help me to vent some of my 'issues' with
Ife in general, I dont moan all the time promise!
