TOPSHOP GIVEAWAY


I was doing a little shopping the other day (if you follow me on Instagram you will know that that 'little bit' was actually more like 'quite a lot') and I decided to pick up a Topshop Lip Cream for myself because I love me a little Topshop Beauty... don't we all? I also decided to pick up these two aswell so I could run a giveaway for you guys! The rules are as follows; you have to follow my blog on GFC and Bloglovin'. The rest of the entries are optional. The giveaway is open internationally and I will verify the entries using the rafflecopter widget. Good luck!!

17 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FRESHERS


1. Never seen anyone throw up before..? That will change.

2. Ridiculous health and safety precautions = queuing in the cold for parties.

3. People form clicks incredibly quickly during freshers so prepare to be more social than you've ever had or wanted to be.

4. Nine times out of ten you will not remain friends with these people you tried so hard to socialise with.

5. You will fall asleep during your lectures- I recommend sitting closer to the back of the hall.

6. If like me you don't fancy getting shit faced every night there are still lots of other cool events to go to.

7. You will be amazed at how fast your student loan disappears- remember you need to live on that money all term so don't waste it on alcohol.

8. Boys will lurk around in packs looking for suitable mates- don't be fooled by their semi-drunk cuteness because one ''amazing'' night with them won't be worth the stick you get from your friends.

9. Homesickness is a bitch. 

10. Clubs and societies are expensive so set some money aside to join whatever takes you fancy.. Quidditch maybe!?

11. Your flatmates will be with you through thick and thin all year so make an effort to befriend them all- organize a games night or something along those lines to get to know each other.

12. You parents will call.. alot.. but you won't mind.

13. Don't bother organising a budget until after freshers because the first week will be filled with necessary purchases replacing things you accidently left at home.

13. Freshers flu is a bitch.

14. Not having your pets around will be really hard!

15. Decorate your room and make it homely because having some where nice to hide when you can't be bothered is a blessing.

16. The first day will be terrifying but remember everyone feels the same way.

17. The week will go by quickly and some will say it was the best of their lives.. if yours wasn't don't worry. You've obviously had a better run up to university than most!

FAVOURITE AUTUMN NAIL POLISH


Dark polish colours are by far my favourite, I think they compliment my pale pink toned skin really well and these three seem to be constantly on my nails at the moment. Rimmel 60 Seconds nail varnish has the best shaped brush ever- it has curved corners which makes it so easy to apply. But the best colour out of these three has to be Revlon 570 Vixen. It's so dark but still doesn't look black which I love! Barry M 273 Raspberry is more of a typical Autumn colour and I've had this one for years yet it remains one of my favourites. I did this post last year too which you can check out here if you want to see more of my favourite Autumn nail polish.

WINTER KNITS FROM NEWLOOK



To be honest I'm not really sure why I needed to go shopping but it happened anyway so I thought I'd share some of what I got with you. I headed straight for Topshop hoping to pick up a nice jumper or two as it's starting to get a little chillier but instead left empty handed and disappointed. Unfortunately no real student can validate spending near on £50 on a jumper- that sort of money would last me two weeks in a supermarket! So instead I went to New Look and was pleasantly surprised at how on point their A/W collection is! I got the grey cropped jumper for £14.99 and the black midi cardigan for £19.99. The quality and look is exactly what you'd expect from Topshop itself but for a much more reasonable price. Also, just wanted to add- I will be hosting a GIVEAWAY really soon to celebrate reaching 2000 readers!! It will be a MAC one as per usual so keep a look out for that!
