London Adventure & so much stress!

Last week I went to London for the night with my best friend when I should have been studying (oops!)  but it was a nice little break. We first made a trip to Oxford Street where we had an itsu meal for lunch, I had a delicious duck and rice pot and my friend had a chicken and noodle pot. Afterwards we ventured on with our shopping trip where we always started with the HUGE Topshop! Usually I'm not too keen on Topshop but I absolutely love the one in London! I bought a Topshop lip bullet which was a plum shade (I think it's called wine gum), a Topshop matte nail varnish in mint and a new fluffy beanie (which Megan thought looked quite Christmassy!) Afterwards we went to Urban Outfitters which I also love! 

We then decided to venture into Chinatown which looked so pretty and go to Boba Jam for some bubble tea! I think I got a bit too excited and dragged Megan into nearly every shop where I bought asian cosmetics such as a Japanese hot eye mask (Kao Megurhythm Steam Hot Eye Mask) and a  Reifoy collagen hydration face mask. We also went into a cute store and had a go at Purikura (we had way too much fun with this! haha!) Our last shop was a shop with asian foods where we bought Pocky and other treats.

We then went to Leicester Square to go to M&M's world and we spotted a premier taking place, it was for The Wolf of Wall Street. I kind of wanted to hang around to see Leonardo DiCaprio but we saw Jonah Hill which was great too! So we went to M&M's world which was amazing because you were basically given free chocolate left, right and center and it was soooo colourful! After that we decided to call it a night!

The next day we went back to Oxford Street to go to New Look where I bought a new scarf, some cute socks, underwear, and some nice tops (which were in the sale!) We then went to Hamleys Toy Shop where we were welcomed in by a really enthusiastic guy blowing bubbles. I'd been into Hamleys a long time ago when I was younger but I forgot how many floors it had! There are a LOT of floors but I really enjoyed it. We were so tempted to buy a pug from the Build a Bear section :) 
We then took a trip to Carnaby Street a shopping street around Soho with various quirky shops such as David & Goliath, Dr. Martens, Irregular Choice, Johnny Cupcakes and there's a M.A.C store (which I didn't go in) and lots more! We then spent our last moments in London at a Wetherspoons for a yummy meal and went to Gosh! A comic book store which made me not want to go back home as we don't have things like this back home! Before going we decided to try out 'Snog!' a frozen yoghurt place which has bright lights on the ceiling which changes colour, oh yeah and the frozen yoghurt was delicious and refreshing! 
So our trip came to an end and we had to run to get our Megabus home and as a result of being late, the guy messed around with us telling us we couldn't get on and there was nothing he could do! But he was obviously joking and let us on. The good thing was that we made it but the bad thing was we had to sit in separate seats for almost 4 hours :( Ahh I miss London so much!

It's been a week since that all happened and I have been putting off writing a blog post this week due to being stressed over exams (which ended yesterday yaaay!) and I think I've possibly failed them all but I managed to get through it without having major panic attacks! To celebrate me and Lynette went to Starbucks and ate Crispy Creme doughnuts which she bought and then watched Devil's Due at the cinema. So I've been so stressed out lately because of my timetable changing for second semester and this has messed up other things which I do outside of uni, finding a place to live this year and other stuff. In order to relax my plans are to sleep, sleep, sleep, watch films and sleep! So I'm going to try and enjoy my week off before I return back to university!

Thanks for reading even though this post wasn't particularly interesting :) 

Happy New Year!!!

It's 2 days into the new year and so far so good! This is the first time in ages I have been excited for the new year. Before I would be dreading the new year and I would think 'oh great! Another year!' However this time things feel different. I think this was down to doing things in 2013 and achieving things which I thought I wouldn't actually do. I also met some amazing people last year who I'm so glad to have in my life this year and I've made so many plans already!  I don't usually come up with New Years resolutions because I don't stick to them but this year I plan to go to as many gigs as possible and a festival, so far I'm seeing Beyoncé, fall out boy, arctic monkeys and McBusted! And my friends are wanting to go to Download festival! I also want to travel a lot this year, I really want to go to China to do volunteering, Florida, Amsterdam, Disneyland Paris and Japan! I'm definitely not rich but you have to dream big, right? I'm currently looking for a house to move into this year with my friend, so that's going to be a huge change in my life but I'm really excited! 
I think helping others makes you feel like a better person, so I have booked an appointment to donate blood again this year on valentines day :D

This time last year I decided to make a memory box which was an idea I saw on twitter. This involved writing down all the good things which happened throughout the year and putting it in the jar so I could read them all at the end of the year! 

I finally got to read all the notes which I wrote this year. It was nice to read the little things I had accomplished this year and all the fun things I did! A few that stuck out was starting therapy, giving blood for the first time, spontaneous day & nights out, student lock-in and a eating a 3 course meal, completing the squat challenge, beating an anxiety attack at work, speaking japanese to a foreign exchange student at work, seeing muse, went to an ann-summers party, getting back into sushi, lots of trips to manchester, doing race for life in 28 minutes, youtubers replying to my comments! Passing my theory test, BBQ in the park, went to sealife in Birmingham, joining tea drinking society, Summer in the city 2013, London zoo, cooking a proper meal, going for a meal with my japanese class! And I saved lots of cinema & train tickets. 

Here are some favourite memories from 2013!

This year I plan to force myself to do more things outside my comfort zone, to be less scared and anxious of situations, travel more, work hard, have more me time and find time to relax and to just simply be happy!  

What are your New Years resolutions and plans? :)
