As I sit and write this, and put words into order, I feel blessed. As my first year at college is coming close to the end its time not to say goodbye but to say see you later college.What a year it has been. Packing away everyone that I once brought up nine months ago,wow where did the time go? It’s mad to think that new friends are made and the results I have achieved. As I pack away the last bit of clothing, as I cook one last dish, as I pull over the bed sheets for one last time and shut the door on my way out, it’s an adventure and something I won’t forget. 1st year may be over but the journey still exist.
Okay guys and dolls so basically for the next few days I am changing the layout of my blog. A new design will be issued. I haven’t changed my blog since I first started it over Two years ago so it’s time to change things about.
Dont worry I will still have my fashion posts! Although I will be introducing a ‘Steal her style ego’, ‘Five words to shop for’ and ‘Makeup blog of the week’. I am looking forward to expanding my wings with this blog. So stay tuned for more!
Happy Monday folks!
Yes yes again ‘Hit the Trend’ is back giving you all the most on what’s trending in this fashion world. First up it’s the boots! Heel ankle boots always make their comeback every year as the same with patterns and animal print.
Photos courtesy of River Island, Topshop and my favourite Miss Guided. Prices range from €50-80 and above but perfect with dresses, skirts and jeans for this time of year.
The only time I seem to be able to blogging is when I’m commuting to college as final year does take over.
Enjoy and hit the trend!!!
Whether your a fresher in uni or like myself in final year you can’t help but not what to be a fresher again. First and second year of college are really where you can grab every opportunity and go for it. As you wind down to third and fourth year (depending on the course and the number of years you have to do) the last two years of college are all geared for results and marks.
My article for HER CAMPUS DCU is now on their site on tips I would give to myself year self. Check it out with the link below. https://www.hercampus.com/school/dcu/what-i-would-tell-my-first-year-self
In the article I give advice and tips on what to look out for and do as a fresher. I think most importantly just mind yourself and enjoy college. In one way I’m ready for College to be over but in another way I want this College bubble never to end.
I’m even questioning how my articles will get themselves out there as the two sites I write for are for students so that will be a change.With final year hitting the ground running I find it hard to balance my blog with time management but I will try and post as much as I can!
Best of luck to all those freshers out there!
Not sure why or how but somehow animal print has made its comeback for A/W18. From tops to belts it’s all animal print style.
(All clothing below is from Topshop) which there is 20% off student discount right now online and in store.)
Okay so teaming up the animal print can be difficult if you want to play it safe teaming an animal print top up with a black skirt or a black pinafore is a good look. For jackets depending on the colour but use the Autumn colours like browns, blacks, reds and wine colours.
This yellow jumper can be really nice and causal look. Good for a catch up with the gals teamed with a pair of jeans and white runners.
You can use the blue in the top to use for earnings or a touch of blue for your handbag.
Okay so for some people they may not know I’m currently the College Life editor for the site Campus.ie. This is an Irish site aimed at student issues.
I recently wrote a personal experience about my jaw surgery in the aim of helping others. Have a read and enjoy🗞📝!
My yearly college post is up! Where do I start? Honestly I feel like this year has been over in a flash😭.
Now I suppose I wasn’t back in college until the end of September and then I was mostly out for my surgery (Post coming soon!) so I wasn’t back until November and soon enough it was Christmas holidays. Next thing you know your back on placement and it’s exam mode.
So here is May and third year is completed ✅Here we are writing about finishing up college for another year. Only one more year left and I’m an NQT 👩🏻🏫 something emotional always sets me off when I’m writing these posts. It’s like the whole routine of college you’re in this bubble that just pops and it’s back to working and travelling for the Summer.
Blood, sweat and tears is something to some up third year but through it all I got here. College flys by like in September I’m going into MY FINAL YEAR! No more student discounts after that. To think a year or two ago I was still in school to almost finish college.
Reflect, reflect, reflect, thats all what this year consists of. It’s been year third year!
Roll on final year ✅📝
So as you can get by the title what the post is about, honestly these last few months I’ve been the realist with myself. I’ve experienced pain, hurt, rejection like everyone does but most importantly I’ve experienced self love the most.
I found social media really toxic so I spent less time chilling on Facebook and more time on me . I’ve booked holidays and read more books.
Some of the above quotes are so inspiring and I hope it inspires others too!
Whatever your struggling with whether it’s exams, heartache, rejection you got this. Day by day nothing has changed but when you look back months later so much has changed and you will realise how far you have come.
Firstly the post is about losing people and wondering if they lost you should you try and hang on. Honestly it’s totally up to once self on that matter.
Secondly life goes on! Whatever happens happens if people don’t make an effort in your life they show them where the door is. Negativity ruins your day. So screw it!
If something is bothering me a quick gym session is on the cards just to escape the madness.
Okay so if you are like me and living on the great island of Ireland we are a long way off summer and sun, but here are what’s trending this year.
The bigger the sunglasses the bigger the joys! That’s my motto for this season.
All of these sunglasses are from Miss Guided ( an online shop I LOVEEE).
From rose gold to white shades they have them all and a seeker pun- All these shades and we still can’t block out the haters!!!
Baggy eyes (P.S the bags under your eyes are Chanel!), lazy day whatever it is sunglasses are for the win.
