Bad Blogger!

So I haven't posted in so long! Such a bad start to the year blog wise! My resolution was to blog more regularly and clearly we all know how well that's going!

Weight Watching & Fashion: A teen's perspective.

Kids are mean. It's a sad fact of life but it's still a fact. When you're at school most kids won't care if they hurt your feelings they'll just tell you what they think whether you want to hear it or not.

Review: Maybeline Fit Me Foundation

Looking for foundation is something I absolutely dread. I'm very pale and don't have a massively prominent pink or yellow skin tone so I always struggle.

Review: Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes

I usually use the normal 'Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes' by Simple but they were 3 for 2 when I went to buy more so I bought a pack of these to try too. So far I'm really impressed with them.

A Little Update...

Ok so uni life really got the best of me for a while and I haven't posted in well over a month! Time completely got away with me and I have a lot of blogging to do! Here's what I've been up to since I last posted:

Life - You Are On Hold

So I've been at university for just over a month now and I'm finally feeling pretty settled. I get on with my flatmates, I have friends in my classes, I haven't died from food/ alcohol poisoning yet and I been run over by the crazy cyclists yet. Overall, a raging success. There's just one small problem. My friends are coming to visit. That's not the problem, I can't wait for them to visit but it does mean that I need to do loads of work now, in order to clear it off my to do list before they get here. An example? Well this is my to do list for today:

Uni Diary: The Grand Arrival!

I am writing this post from my new home. Bournemouth! Yesterday was my arrivals day and we were told to arrive between 3 and 5pm so we packed up the car (just about squeezing all my stuff in my dad's car) and arrived in Bournemouth at about 4pm.

My name is Nicole. I am a Potter nerd.

Ok so I haven't done anymore uni diaries recently mainly because all I've been doing for it is preparing and buying things but as soon as there is more I'll write another blog. I spent today at home and decided to check the 'anytime' feature on my sky box and found that they have just put Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 on there. When I was growing up I was a massive fan of the series. I went to the shop at midnight when the books were released and read them all very quickly, I saw all the films as soon as they were released and came to appreciate them all the more when I got older and realised how good the writing was and how the stories and characters matured as the series continued. I realised this when I wanted to be a writer but anyway! This film was released last year, 2 days after my 18th birthday and I always intended to go and see it in the cinema but I just got carried away with all the celebrations and didn't get round to it. I then watched it online a while ago but the quality was pretty terrible. After watching it today I have been reminded of how much I love the series. I'm thinking of having a Harry Potter movie marathon with my friends at some point and I'm going to attempt to dig out my copy of the books so I can read them again :) anyway that's all for now! x

Uni Diary: Day 5

Today's the first day I haven't done much for uni since results day. I went to town and bought a few bits but that was it. I went to open my student account but they said I can't do it yet so I'm doing that on Monday hopefully. But my nan came over and I showed her all the bits I bought for uni which was nice. Can't wait to get accommodation sorted now! Anyway I'm going shopping for the last uni bits tomorrow and when I've got everything I might do a haul of everything :) Until tomorrow! x

Uni Diary: Day 4

I have spent all of today reading through all of the stuff the university has sent me and organising everything that I can as soon as possible. It only really sunk in this morning that I actually get to go to the university I want! They sent me something that said 'Welcome to Bournemouth - your new home' and that's when I realised I actually get to live there!! I think I'm honestly still a bit overwhelmed by it all and it's slowly sinking in. More updates tomorrow!
