GETTING BACK INTO STUDYING

Everything else has taken a backseat lately as I recently started a course with the OCA, I knew I wanted to get a degree but had no clue what and didn’t want to rush into something after school. I’d always planned to something based around creativity but could never decide on a certain aspect. The Creative Arts degree that the OCA offers allows you to study a range of topics, to begin with (Contemporary Art, Creative Writing, Visual Communications, Photography, Textiles) and then you choose 2 of these to develop further. This is perfect for me as I’ll be able to explore the different avenues and can make a better-informed choice on what I’m more interested in. Right now, I think I’ll choose writing and photography since I enjoy them both and think they could be pretty useful in terms of the potential careers I’d be interested in - another positive being the fact that hopefully, this will open up new job opportunities too.

So what is the OCA? Well, the Open College of the Arts is for th…

20 THINGS I'VE LEARNT ABOUT MYSELF IN 20 YEARS

Since I recently turned 20, I feel like a know a fair amount about the sort of person I am now... though I definitely don't have my life figured out by any means! I also find posts that allow you to find more about the blogger interesting so thought I'd share 20 things about me here.
I love exploring and travelling - Whether it's a completely different country or even just a new place within somewhere I'm already familiar with, I want to visit as many different places as I can!Learning has always been something I've enjoyed - I actually really liked school but besides that, I just like to learn and expand my knowledge as much as possible.I'm generally a pretty calm and chilled person - Most of the time I'm a very laid back person and don't get easily stressed or angry.I'm a hard worker but also equally good at procrastinating - I always work hard at whatever I do but I would probably get it done much quicker if I didn't procrastinate as much!I e…

WHAT I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY

On Sunday it was my 20th birthday and it feels pretty weird to not be a teenager anymore, I'll admit (though in reality, I feel no different) but I had a lovely day and thought I'd share some of the gifts I kindly received!

Globe Necklace
I've had my eye on one of these for the longest time now, I'm pretty sure I even tweeted about it a while ago and I've definitely liked a lot of photos on Instagram! Unfortunately, I'm not sure which brand this is from but there are so many great places that sell them and you usually choose from gold, silver or rose gold. I really like the design and since I have such an interest in travelling, I thought it was perfect. 
Jumper
I've been meaning to buy a more boxy style jumper for a while now as I really like the cut of them and this particular one from Topshop is also an off the shoulder which I think can really add interest to an outfit. Grey is one of my favourite colours to wear too so I know it's something I'll…

FEBRUARY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

So January took forever but I blinked and February was basically over! Although I’m pretty glad about that as March is my birthday month so it’s always one I look forward to! However, before I start thinking about that I thought I’d go through some things I enjoyed throughout the last month.
Beauty 
I was recently sent a couple of product samples which were a lovely thing to receive in the post! The first being a Rituals Shower Oil which has a really calming scent and I'm looking forward to using it. Also, I was gifted two small perfume samples - the Black Opium Intense from Yves Saint Laurent and the Yes I Am from Cacharel. I always like to try out new fragrances and am really pleased to have been given these samples!


Weather 
We’ve had some pretty interesting weather recently, firstly with the snow that we had at the start of the month. I really love the cold weather and was looking forward to taking some snowy photos with my camera so was definitely pleased when I got that oppor…
