So that's it. 16 years of education is over!
As much as I feel relived now this huge weight is off my shoulders, I miss it. My daily routine for the past three years is no longer a journey i have to follow any longer, and the people, especially those amazing people who've made this journey so much easier and bearable. I love you guys!
Through these past few years as much as I've laughed, smiled and grown as an individual, I've also cried, pulled my hair out, made feel so incompetent and like crap off someone's shoe. There was that point this semester that I wanted to give it all up, even at the final hurdle. I was at my lowest.
BUT I made it to the finishing line though, and it was all thanks to the beautiful people around me. Whether I've known them for years, months or days, I'm so glad they are in my life. I was able to confide, rant, cry, sit in a comfortable silence with them. One of my best friend even brought me a 'book of encouragement' a cute little book full of encouraging quotes and sayings, as cliche as some of those phrases were, they helped and I bring it with me wherever I go.
I don't what I'm trying to say here, but I guess i Just want to let it all out :)
Cherish those around you, they are special and rare. Thank them, hug them, tell them they're the best.
I'll take this opportunity to thank you guys too. Thank you so much to every single one of you guys who read and follow my blog. It's been less than half a year since I started this blog and I would never have thought that I would get so many followers. You guys are amazing, thank you for your support! ♥♥♥
In celebration of my first day of freedom, I decided to shop till my heart's content.
Oh but before I go into the haul, I received a few things in the post this morning. My first excitement for the day!
ASOS: I love this gorgeous necklace, the length is perfect for the summer. The plait detail is really pretty, and the trio of birds is such a cute touch.
And yay! My first piece of Disney Couture jewellery, and it fits! My arms are really small, so i was really happy that this bracelet fits. It had a magnetic clasp and along one half of the band is 'think of a wonderful thought' so cute!
Love Me (130), Pink Excess (010), Be Bold (120)
These Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipsticks came in three separate packages! One for me, Two for my sister. We won them!! I was super excited when I opened all three of them and immediately messaged my sister at school. I haven't tried them out yet as I didn't know if they were shades that would suit us. I swatched them in Superdrug later that day, they are really lovely colours, still not sure whether i would use them...but was still happy nonetheless and they smell amazing. Sweet.
Make sure you sign up to Rimmel's website, where you can enter their promotions for a chance to win products. They also occasionally send you emails to enter competitions too. We've won a few times, so chances are pretty good.
Ok, so onto the haul. After taking the train and arriving into London Bridge, I contemplated on whether I should go Convent Garden or Bond Street. I decided Bond Street as there were less interchanges and I was lazy :P
Today they had 10% off all beauty and fragrance, I picked up this opportunity to had a snoop around.
D&G Mini Collection. SJP NYC (The perfume next to SJP is Diamond from Next)
I went perfume crazy today. The D&G collection came with a free pouch, these are five of D&G's popular fragrances in 20ml bottle, all are unisex smells. My favourite is 18 at the moment.
SJP's new fragrance was a instant love, it's smells so light and fruity. I bought the smallest size to fit in my bag!
I can never resist Selfridges!
MAC Paintpots in Groundwork and Coral Crepe
Both from the Prêt-à-Papier collection. These paintpots are lovely and creamy with a hint of shimmer. The staying power is amazing, I tried to washed off the swatches with water, does budge. With soap it was easily but still tough to completely wash off.
Topshop Nail Polish in Sunset.
A lovely corally pink shimmering shade, can't wait to try on!
Topshop Blush in Butterscotch
A lovely shade to highlight, or just to bring a glow to your cheeks. I can't believe i missed it when I first checked out the range.
Freedom leaf ring (adjustable). Diva ring set.
My favourite is the crown ring, it's so cute! I have the leaf rinf in gold already and decided to get the silver too :)
Finally back in town, from TKMAXX
I really like the floaty look. The ruffles are really nice along the neckline and at the bottom.
That's it! I dread to think how much I spent... XD
Hope you have a lovely weekend, and good luck to those who still have exams and assignments!
