The Catch Up >> Style Evolution, Feeling Spendy & My Love Life

I'm going to skip straight past the "I said I'd post when uni started back but I didn't because I've been too busy" talk, because although true, I've said it before. I'll probably say it again, but for now it's summer and I don't yet have a job so I need blogging for my sanity. To get back into the swing of things, a quick catch up...

FASHION >> I had to talk about clothes, didn't I? I feel like I'm always experimenting with new things to wear, but I've really felt like I'm stepping into my own recently. I don't know if it's my recent working out that is simply making me feel more comfortable in different styles of clothing, but either way I'm flexing my fashionable (?) muscles. I don a different style every time I dress myself, but I have to say that I'm really enjoying the 90s teen style on myself right now. Chokers all the way.

BEAUTY >> As time has gone on, I've been reaching for higher end brands. I rarely impulse buy and instead like to save up to buy a few well thought out pieces that I know I will enjoy and that will last. The same goes for clothes, actually. Instead of having an over-spilling of products, I have narrowed down my stash into items I genuinely use all the time. Some favourite recent discoveries have been the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure and the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel.

LIFE >> My second semester of second year at uni went by in a bit of a blur. It was a lot of essays coupled with juggling a social media internship at the same time, but I actually really enjoyed myself and the subjects I was learning (particularly Film Noir - hello Harrison Ford in Blade Runner). My flatmates and I have sorted our new bigger and better flat which we'll be moving into in August, I got a tattoo, and I'm going to Cape Cod in the summer. A lot of life things to handle but I'm excited - as well as apprehensive - of the changes to come. Speaking of, I went and got myself a boyfriend didn't I? He's the sweetest, we have so much in common and he makes me feel loved every day - I couldn't be happier with him. He has perhaps pushed the cynical me aside. Just a tad. It feels a little self-serving to mention a relationship here, but we're all friends right? We can acknowledge my love life for a moment before the fashion and beauty resumes.

I feel like I'm in a happy place, the only thing missing being a job to tide me over summer. This year instead of going home to Glasgow to work, I've decided to stay in Dundee, and so I'm in the lovely limbo stage of waiting for someone to take pity and hire me. However, it does mean I have time to write again, and to throw myself back into this community that I miss so much. I would love to hear any suggestions for posts, and I hope you enjoy the content that is to come!
