hot weather and tescos

So Britain’s rainy streak has finally finished! For a while, at least. And that’s always great – tans get darker, clothes get smaller and brighter, and everyone seems so much more cheerful.

I mean, I walked into the JCR the other day to students singing along to bad 90s pop. Last time that happened was around Christmas time, to the High School Musical soundtrack. We have a collective great music taste. Honest.

This was the other day. I’m still not sure whose glasses they were, or why we decided to have a photo, but this is me and Connor, and I think this is when we all got ice creams (aka the food of the gods).

Given it was our first day of A2, it was actually a really good day! Gorgeous weather, slightly darker tan, and nice cold food.

Enter Tescos. It’s literally a 1 minute walk away from college, so it’s the main shop for us. These water guns were reduced to £1. They sold out by 10am. A lot of people got soaked through in water fights in the JCR and generally around town.

Tesco, being the angels they are, put ice creams on offer as well, so lunch is nearly always ice creams at the moment.

In short, it’s been an amazing day (thank you friends and Tescos), and it’s going to get even better with my friend’s birthday party this weekend!

student life and shoes

As any other student will know, right now is the middle of exam season. Aka, cue the insanely late nights, marathon revision sessions and stupid amounts of tea (or coffee). Thank god I’ve only got two exams left – Physics, and Mechanics. Okay, they’re not exactly the easiest, or the most enjoyable, but it’s eleven less exams than I had left 2 months ago. Phew.

On a positive note (for me, anyways), the college trip to Greece is coming up, which means new clothes, and as you’ve probably figured from the title, new shoes!

Contrast Block Heel Sandals from Matalan (£15) [x]

I saw these beauties, and ended up trawling around three shops and a lot of web pages just to find my size! It was definitely worth it though, given that they were £15 brand new!

Also managed to get my hands on another bargain, thanks to Depop (the best thing to happen since sliced bread in my opinion) – two pairs of heeled Jujus (black and pink) for £18.50! Been looking for a nice pair of Jujus for a while, and to get two for less than the price of one pair brand new has made me beyond happy.

Super sorry that this has only been a short post, and that I haven’t been active too much lately, but I promise to try and correct that after exams and in the run-up to Greece! Time to break the revision books out again, I guess…
