Life Update – School, University and Blogging

Dear you, just to warn you in advance, this is going to be a hell of a long post. Although no apologies, sorry. Oh I guess that was one, oops.

I am writing this now late on a Sunday night in March because my mind is overfull and I just had to write about so many things that are going on and that I am planning (for this website as well woohoo). 

First of all, I know I haven’t been blogging that much and that is because I have been so busy with school and finding the right university for me that I have just kind of put this blog to one side. I really tried to do everything together but it has been a month now since I last posted and that is waaaaay too long I know. SORRY. 
School is really my priority at the moment and working in retail aside that just does not give me much time left to spend blogging. 

Luckily, spending so much time researching universities, visiting open days, applicant days and trying really hard to get into the University that I wanted to go to has paid off because I have been offered a place at London College of Fashion! AAH! This has been my number one choice and I spend this past year working on my personal statement and ensuring that I met all the criteria. I still can’t believe it and I am so grateful already. I do have to get certain grades to fully confirm my place which is why I am focusing so much on school at the moment. If I get the right grades in my subjects, I will start the course MSc Strategic Fashion Management in September. *fingers crossed*
This is an integrated master course which means even more years of study woohoo, just when you think you’re finished with school, ha. 

I honestly hope that this is going to work out because I really want to go to LCF and study that degree, I think I have mentioned it once on my blog somewhere before but what I look for in my dream job is fashion, business and travelling. I think this is the perfect course for me and I think it will help me continue my path to my dream career!

So back to this blog again, now you (hopefully) understand why you haven’t heard from me in awhile and are probably not going to much for the next couple of months. I am trying to finish all my coursework by May and my last exam is at the start of June. 
After that, I will have all the time in the world to spend blogging! I am so excited for that time already!

I have recently been thinking about the content of my blog and at first I thought I needed to make it more professional, with more ”how to” and fashion posts but then I also don’t want to lose that personal touch. So I decided my blog can be both professional with personal posts as well, I don’t have many of those anyway yet because that was not what I was going for but I sometimes I have so much to say and I can’t write it all in an outfit or beauty post. I think I am going to add another section to my website called ”Diary” where I can just write about my thoughts and opinions and more chatty posts in general. This way, people who are not interested in my personal life can just choose a category to read such as fashion or beauty and don’t have to scroll through these long paragraphs. Although I must say, I personally love reading long posts sometimes because I feel like you get to know a person a bit better. I do try to express myself and the way I am through my short posts where it is mainly pictures, but this is much easier and I don’t have to cut out everything I typed because the post is too long, which is what I normally do with outfit ones. 
Can I just say, how hard is it to write something nowadays without using emoji’s?! I even put the laughing faces next to some sentences in my head but it just does not give the same effect. (laughing emoji right there)

So that is it for school and this blog so far, good things are coming, promise! 
I hope you like the idea of a different ”diary” section, it will certainly help me organise my posts better and I personally think it will all be better structured and I can really separate my content more. 

Now, can we all take a moment of appreciation for Ed Sheeran’s new album please? Supermarket flowers made me cry the very first time I heard it, woah.
I don’t know when my next post will be but if all goes as planned there are so many great things waiting! 

Hope you had a lovely weekend and let tomorrow’s Monday be a great start of the week for a change.

Love as always,
