Life After College, What’s Next?

So, I’ve finally finished my Art Foundation Course! Not only has this past year been one of the most stressful years yet, it also changed a lot of things. 

Let’s take it back to the start, ever since I was about 8 I’ve loved everything to do with fashion. I was obsessed with dressing up, swapping all the clothes on my Bratz dolls and making my halloween costumes. My dad was always very artistic and always taught me new ways to draw, I think that’s why I loved it so much!

By the age of 13 I had my whole life planned out, what GCSE options I was going to take, what college I was going to, what A level courses I wanted to do, I’d even chose a university! Moving to London to study Fashion Design with Marketing in Central St. Martins was my dream! 
I finished my GCSE’s, got into the college I wanted to go to and near the end of me completing my A Levels, it was time to apply for university, but now the idea of actually leaving everything behind and going to fend for myself in London scared the shit out of me. I didn’t want to leave home just yet, but I definitely wanted to go to university. So I applied for the art foundation course in the college I was already studying at. It is one of the worst decisions I ever made.
At first, the Art Foundation course sounded perfect. I didn’t want to go to uni just yet but I didn’t want to have a gap year either. So getting an extra qualification in something I loved seemed perfect, but I was wrong. This year changed everything for me, I now hate the thought of doing fashion design in university – i’ve lost interest altogether. I think the thing that put me off the most was the teachers, oh they were horrible. I just didn’t want to go anymore, I didn’t want to be anywhere near them. But I couldn’t waste the year so I just got on with it and got all my work done, got my exhibition up and proved a lot of people wrong. I’m currently waiting for my results (July 13th) and hopefully I pass, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
And so that brings me to where I am now, I’ve finished college and have absolutely no idea what I want to do next. I’d love to be able to do blogging full time as I absolutely love it, but wouldn’t we all?! I’m also going to teach myself Spanish and focusing on improving my digital drawings as I also love doing those! (The one above is of the beautiful Katie).  
But, since I have no idea what I want to do next I’m going to focus on working and saving money so that I can travel and hopefully somewhere along the way I’ll figure out what my dream job is!

Mini Tarte Haul

Okay so when I say ‘mini’ Tarte haul, I actually mean mini… Like two items mini hahaha! 

But I am far too excited about these products to not share them with you!

The first thing I picked up is something I’ve been wanting forever. Every time I went to order it, it was out of stock in the shade I needed! I finally got my hands on it when QVC had the lighter shades in stock! I’m obsessed with the applicator and I definitely haven’t been disappointed in the product! It is as good as everyone raves it is, trust me!!
If you can get your hands on it, definitely get it! It’s one of my new favourite concealers!

The last thing I picked up from Tarte is the limited edition Unicorn Magic Wands Brush Set.
How beautiful are these?!?!
I am absolutely obsessed, when I seen them I just had to have them!! They’re so soft and look so expensive! 
I can’t tell you what I think about these yet, as I haven’t used them haha! I’m too scared of ruining them hahaha!
Also, can we talk about how this is the prettiest tissue paper, EVER?!
Have you ever tried any Tarte products?!

Life Update!

Okay so this was supposed to be my April roundup post, as I had every intention of getting back into blogging at the start of May but that didn’t happen! Since we’re now halfway through May, I thought I should probably update you all on my life and why I disappeared from my blog for a few weeks. This past month has been very weird. There has been a lot of ups and downs and not a lot of blog posts!

I lost a lot of motivation for a lot of things, my blogs been all over the place and so has my health! But I’ve made some fun memories and learnt some lessons, so lets go!

My life runs in a routine of college, work, sleep, repeat! It isn’t fun. 

I’ve been doing a lot of overtime in work this month to start saving money, hence the lack of time to focus on my blog. I hate college, the teachers are so unhelpful and simply could not care less about my health situation! But i’ve got three weeks left, so I’m sucking it up and getting on with it because at least i’ll have an Art Foundation Diploma at the end of it! 
I’ve missed my blog so much, I love blogging and this is something I want to do forever! I can’t wait to finish college, so I have all day everyday to focus on my blog and make my content as good as I want it to be!
My health isn’t too good at the moment, although it is better than it was! We’ve – kind of – gotten to the bottom of what’s wrong with my heart and I’m now waiting round until my appointment in the Neurology clinic (June 26th) to figure out all the rest!

On a good note I’ve made some fun memories the past month too, we had our works night out which was fun! I went to Alton Towers, As well as other nights out and days spent with family, which are so important!! I also got a new tattoo, which I am obsessed with!!

The day this post goes up  (May 21st) is also the day me and Charlie have been together two years!
I am so lucky to have someone who makes me sooo happy and supports me in everything I do! I can’t wait for a million more years<3

Starting with the goals I made in March, guess what? I failed at them all!!
My first goal was to get ahead with college work – this didn’t happen. I lost all motivation with college a long time ago, I’m not behind on work but i’m not ahead either! But with only 3 weeks to go I need to get my ass into gear and get that diploma!
My next goal was to keep on top of my blog, another thing that didn’t happen! I lost all motivation with my blog this month, there has been so many distracting things this month, as well as a few negative things, it just put me right off! As well as sleepless nights leading to very unproductive days, which just made me even less motivated!
My third goal was to save money, haha next joke!
Finally, I said I wanted to get back into a routine with my weightloss, another thing that hasn’t happened! My health is still up and down so i’ve been as much junk food as I can handle and having a pity party for one in my bedroom!! 
So, not good on the goals so far! But this month I am determined to get back to it and find my motivation again. 
So, setting goals for this month! Some are gonna be the same as the last ones, but we’ll add a few new ones into the mix!
1 – Get back on track with my blog!
2 – Start Slimming World and get body confident again!
3 – SAVE MONEY!!!
4 – Experiment with my blog photography more
5 – Join a gym!

I tried to keep this post short and simple, but I can ramble on for hours!
Have you set any goals for this month?
