It’s been ages since I wrote one of these, well that’s how it feels! I have been so busy this week due to freshers so there’s no Sunday Post for me but I still wanted to update you with a couple of things.
1. Hootsuite has been my best friend this month. I don’t know what I would have done without it! I have learnt how it can help advertise and plan my tweets for promotion of my blog which certainly helps when trying to make friends. You definitely don’t want to be the one attached to your phone during lunch breaks!
2. I have been really wanting to change up some parts of my bedroom again, I found some lovely pieces in Ikea which is on my wishlist, just hope that I can afford them soon.
3. The digital recorder which I got given from Sight and Sound for my dyslexia really has been helping me through freshers week, I am now not so nervous about the lectures for my course which will be starting next week.
4. When other bloggers say that organisation is the key to a successful blog, they really aren’t wrong!! I wouldn’t know where I would be without the scheduling feature in blogger right now. I have been planning my blog posts until the end of the year including the #bigblogmasproject2014 days. You can also get involved to, just contact the lovely Nicole who created the project.
Last weekend I headed up to Edinburgh for a night out with my sister and her friends. It was enjoyable to say the least and I admit that I have come back to Newcastle feeling a bit hungover, oops! I really enjoyed spending some quality time with my sister as well as meeting her friends who will be attending the wedding next month. The quiet drinks turned into a full blown night out which involved dancing and a lot of vodka. Drinking isn’t really my thing but I suppose it was a bit of practice before University starts, right?! Some of the places we visited were a lovely Turkish restaurant for nibbles, Mercat Tours for a ghost walk, Shanghai for a bit of a dance and Bramble Cocktail Bar where we treated ourselves to some unusual cocktails. Mine was served in a teacup fit with a saucer!
When it comes to nail varnish Barry M have hit the spot, that’s my opinion anyway. If you read my review (click here) you will know I am a lover of their Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint collection. Coconut was added to the collection along with Almond, Olive, Elderberry, Kiwi, Damson and Pink Punch. Although the new releases happened earlier this year, I have just picked up Coconut and fell immediately in love with it.
I would describe Coconut as a lovely off white pastel shade. It is a perfect shade to go with everything because it is close to cream instead of being tipex white. As I said in my previous review, they are super quick when it comes to drying and it takes two coats for them to become opaque.
