I finally dyed my hair red! I’ve wanted to do it for years but never got round to doing it as I figured I’d have to bleach it first, but I gave it a go without bleaching and I love it! I think I’ll be sticking with this colour for a while.
(although saying that, it’s likely in a month I’ll be bored and dye it something different again, haha!)
Hi there! Not dead, don’t worry, haha. It’s lovely that some of you ask how I am because I don’t really update you on, y’know… the person behind the oatmeal. I’m fine, promise! ;D
Anyway, after a week of some virus thing, being told I need glasses (secretly always wanted them anyway, shh) and having my art foundation interview, I’m a little knackered but still otherwise good. :)
And to those who care - I did get the interview, so I’ll be doing art for a whole year next year and then who knows what degree after that! It was an hour long interview but within 10 minutes I was told I would be offered a place on the course so that’s nice. :)
Hope everyone else is alive (and hope that part is a given) and well! ♥
So I’m pretty sure I’m going to leave university and pursue the life that I actually want, dream of and feel destined to do. I feel so much more calm already - soon I might actually feel happy with myself! ;D
It’s only five weeks until I’m home. My tenancy agreement doesn’t run out until July though, so I might come back up to Sheffield and gain experience in a big city whilst I still can but just not go to university any more. I’m pretty attached to the city already, and a few people, so it would be a shame to leave that behind.
Anyway, I’m smiling, I’m pretty content and I feel like my whole body has given a huge sigh of relief. I’m in the best place I’ve been in for years. The difficult part is staying in this mindset.
I hope the rest of you are all as stress-free as I am right now. :) ♥
One month of university = done! :D
I know the names of each building, I know how to get to each lecture hall, I know where the short cuts are, I know how the library coding system works, where the health centre is and how to use the gym equipment. I’m all set, really!
I haven’t been so lucky job wise but I’m not going to stop trying, I just have to hope more come up in January. I’m enjoying my course so far though, other than the business modules which are… to put eloquently - bleh. Just bleh.
But one of my best friends is coming down (up? I keep on forgetting I’m not in the south any more…) to see me and stay over and we’re going to make a lemon meringue pie so that’ll be awesome.
I know, I know, I’m still being inconsistent with this blog and I am sorry, but I’ve been having a lot of the same meals again and again as it’s cheaper, and I’m not sure you’d want seven photos of the same pasta dish. Yeeeeah.
Anyway. Hope all is well with everybody! Good luck and break a leg to anyone who needs it. :)
First week of university is overrr! (and the second week has begun)
Sheffield air has surprisingly done wonders for my skin. I’m glowing.
My first essay is done and the second and third have been set already! I’ve also applied for a job at a health food store, signed up for the Create & Craft society (baking, tie-dye, clay etc.) and the Pole Fitness society! And I have my gym induction tomorrow, so I’m going to be a busy bee.
I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you guys a little - I’m not used to having a social life, haha! This month’s money has now come in so I can afford food and therefore there will be more food photos/recipes!
Hopefully school/university/life is going well for all of you. :)
(ehehe I love my new lippy.)
I might actually be able to pass for 18 now! When I was 16 I was asked for ID when I tried to buy Mean Girls. Mean Girls is rated 12. Yeaaaah.
But oddly enough I’ve ordered two cocktails since being 18 and I haven’t been ID’d despite actually HAVING an ID. It’s weird how the world works sometimes!
Anyway, I’m rambling - I hope everyone is wearing a wide smile today and to all of those starting uni - have a ball! :D
Did I mention how much I love those peanut butter cake pops?
Because I do. I really, really do.
There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did and who always will. I sincerely hope you never leave my life, Megan. c: <3
Completely shameless self pic. I’ve been teased for years and years about my curls but screw ‘em, I’m pretty fond of my curly mane. :3 (Taken with Instagram)
Favourite outfits of this week. :3
I know you can’t really tell but the outfit I’m wearing on the left has bright purple tights and I’m absolutely in love with them. I should really be cutting down on my tights collection… I have about 30 different pairs - all different colours and patterns, but I can’t help it. Hi, I’m Freya and I’m a fluorescent tights addict.
Just to add to the bright leg craze - I’m loving all the coloured jeans in shops! As a former wannabe ‘scene’ kid I owned many a pair of coloured jeans - the craziest being a glittery silver pair, which I sadly outgrew. For some reason metallic jeans are now on trend; I’ve seen them in quite a few stores lately, so I’ll be sure to get some when I stop being so poor!
And yes, those are toucans on my shirt. ;D
I’m back from the Olympics! :D
It looks like we chose the best day to go! We had tickets to the athletics so we got to see all of the action! 6 golds today for Great Britain. Well done Jessica Ennis!!! You did us all proud. :’)
Long skirts and maxi dresses are the best trend of the summer because you don’t have to shave your legs and you still look awesome.
You guys have been extremely nice with all my birthday posts and seem to love my clothes! I figured you’d hate if I posted me/about me because, y’know. This is a vegan blog. But it is ~my blog, so I can do whatever I want, right? ;D
Don’t worry if you only follow me for food posts. My blog will still be 90% that. However you might see the occasional ‘me’ post, too. I’ve got to stop worrying about others’ opinions so much!
Thank you again for all the lovely birthday messages. I’ll soon be back home - then I’m off to the Olympics, woo!
(P.S. gurl look at dat booty.)
My main presents this year are an iPod and jumping out of a plane, but my parents still wanted to get me something to have on my actual birthday, so they bought me a courgette, haha! And my brother made a slide-show of all the best things about me. It took all of minus 3 seconds for my Ma to start crying.
Here’s to the next few years! (and thank you for all the lovely messages! :’) )
My brother and I always have a jumping photo when we’re together, haha.
I’m 100% certain I was the palest person there.
I’m having a moment of positivity, thus I am documenting it, so when I am sad again there’s proof I’m not always miserable!
I’m feeling smiley, content, relaxed and even somewhat body positive. Today shall be a good day. I’m happy for no particular reason - which is awesome, because I’m happy for the sake of being happy.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day - love and embrace the body you’re in! :)
