It literally feels like forever since I’ve been sat here writing one of these blog posts and boyyy have I missed it ✨
Here are some updates and a little explanation as to where I’ve been 💓
End of Placement
If you’ve been reading my posts you’d know that for the past year, I’ve been on my placement year – meaning that I took one year out of university to work – and it has honestly been one of the best years of my life and I can’t believe I was so close to not doing one! For the first six months I was working for a designer accessories brand as a Communications intern and for the second six months, I worked as a Press and Marketing intern at a lingerie brand. The day after I finished work I had a week away in Bristol with my family and this was the first time that my boyfriend got to meet them all 🙂 I wasn’t really fair because I literally threw him into a house with my parents and all of my extended family too haha!! Luckily he’s just as weird as all of them and he fit in perfectly ☺️
I’m very lucky that my best friend and my boyfriend both have houses in Spain so I thought this was the perfect time to go out and visit 🙂 I went out and met a lot of my friends for my best friend’s 21st birthday in Mojácar, Spain. This was my first time in this beautiful country and it was exactly what I needed with everyone 😌
I was here for five days before my boyfriend flew out and picked me up from Mojácar and drove us to his dad’s place in Frigiliana which is literally a stunning place in the mountains near Malaga 😍😍
We spent the week relaxing and tanning of course hehe and going on walks over the mountains every morning, which was so incredibly beautiful and needed, but I bloody developed hay fever didn’t I! I didn’t know all week why my eye was red and itchy so I just kept going on all these walks everyday lool silly me.
Moving Into My Uni House
Just before I moved up into my uni house I had a few days living at my boyfriends house down in Surrey and we just spent it going out and shopping in London and watching movieeess. It sounds so silly because I see my boyfriend Sean all the time but for the past year we’ve always had work the next day, so it was so lovely to just have a few days to chill and not have to worry about being up at 6am the next day!
To finish off my placement year I decided to treat myself as well with a little help from my beautiful mama.. I ended up buying myself a Gucci bag! Whoops!!! My fingers must’ve slipped at the till again :///
Then I was off to Portugal!! With a few of our uni friends we visited Lisbon for a week and it turned out to be some crazy Geordie Shore holiday and going out EVERY night which I literally can’t hack anymore haha but we definitely made sure to do fun, touristy things during the day too which made it literally the most fun holiday 😍😍
Now I’m sat at home in Hong Kong and I’m here for a month so I should have plenty of time to get back into blogging 🙂 I’ve just got back from Thailand to see all my family which was so incredibly nice but having lived in England, I literally CAN’T TAKE THE HEAT! I kept wanting to go out but the air con was just bloody beaut.
I’m so tempted to do a post on all these updates individually because I could talk about Spain and Portugal allllll DAY but I don’t know if you’d be interested?? Let me know – but for now I hope you enjoyed this and this clears up why I haven’t been able to stick to my schedchhh (impossible to spell lol) 😅
ALSO.. (btw thanks for sticking with me and this post for this long) but I’ve managed – by some MIRACLE – to reach over 200 followers and I couldn’t be happier and more thankful, thank you for making my life seem like it’s not lived by an absolute potato ❤️❤️ I’m sorry I’ve barely read any of your posts the last couple months as I haven’t been able to but WORRY NOT, as all I have now is time 😎 😎
