Also, last night I met Brendon Urie!!! (aka lead singer of Panic! At The Disco! :D)
They’ve been my favourite band for the past eight years and because my boyfriend is the absolute best, he managed to get in to the Panic! listening party in London and I was his +1! I reckon there was only about 100 people there so we were very lucky! :D
If only 12 year old Freya could see this now, she’d be sobbing for sure, haha! It almost doesn’t feel real, I can’t believe this was only 24hrs ago. Ahh! ^_^
Sorry I’ve been gone so long! The course really is taking up a lot of my time so I’m still being pretty blasé about food and having the same things over and over. I thought I’d have more time at the weekends to experiment but I’m spending those going to open days and seeing my boyfriend, so no such luck there, either!
Anyway, our current theme is ‘flight’ and I’m working on the supernatural ability of flight and superheroes as a whole, hence the costume, haha. So that’s the little update for now! (I’m sort of meant to be Black Widow, in case anyone asks. ^^)
Hope you’re all well, half term is only 3 weeks away and posts will return more frequently then! :D xo
I was finally able to meet Curits!!! :D
He’s absolutely lovely as you can all imagine and I had a fab time with him! Thank you for showing me around Victoria, Curtis! I hope the rest of your stay is fun. ^^
(and yes… I am that pale, haha.)
I finally filmed the first cooking video!!
Jamie Oliver has launched a competition on YouTube for the next Food Tube star and I thought hey, I could totally do that! So I’ve done it. Filmed the video, that is. My brother is currently editing it as he loves nothing more than editing videos (genuinely) and it shall be up here in the next few days!
The top five get selected by Jamie and his team (the deadline is 1st September) and then out of those five, whoever gets the most likes on their video wins the competition! So if I do get in the top five, I’m going to need your guys’ help! :D
You had to do something involving rice so I’ve done a simple white wine/pea risotto with a roast butternut squash and red bell pepper sauce. It’s vegan, gluten free and a much healthier take on the traditional risotto. Hopefully you like it!
Hugs and well wishes as always! <3
It’s my birthdaaaaaay! I’m one more year in to adulthood, woo-hoo!
I’ve gotten some amazing presents such as being treated to cocktails and Mexican food (as seen above) by my best friend last night, Nigella’s “How To Be A Domestic Goddess” book, a toy stuffed dragon fruit (to go with the stuffed carrot and broccoli that already reside on my bed) and a poster which simply says “Everything you see I owe to spaghetti,”.
I think it’s pretty blatant I’m a foodie, haha! Hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine and summer days. :)
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
