I know it's really stereotypically Scottish of me, but as soon as I woke up and saw the sun yesterday, I straight away decided that it was to be a dress and sunglasses day. Got to make the most of it - that was probably like a third of the amount of sunny days we'll get this year! My friends and I decided to go to Glasgow's Botanic Gardens to have a picnic to celebrate the good weather - how cute does it look!?
Does anyone else do what's apparently backwards, and dye their hair darker in the Spring/Summer months then go lighter in Autumn/Winter? This must be the third year in a row now I've followed this pattern, dark from March and then dip dye and highlights from September... Though I'm not entirely keen on what I've dyed my hair like today! This was L'oreal's Casting Creme Gloss in the shade of "Chocolate"... I don't know, I haven't tried it out with make-up yet so my eyebrows and pale face are probably making it look worse, plus I was used to having light hair. Knowing me though, it'll have changed again in a few weeks!
I can’t believe it’s taken me nearly four
months to notice this…
I’ve just been blogging whenever something
happens and I think “yeah, that’s worth posting and being read”, but I’ve
literally only just realised something – I haven’t even explained who I am,
anything about me… Why has it taken this long for this to be noticed!?
So, I’ve decided to do a “20 questions”
style blog post for today, except more like “20 answers” because I’m an idiot.
1.My name is Hannah.
(This is me, btw.)
2.I’m 18 years old
3.I’m an International Business
student, though I’m really into media so this blog is supposed to be like a
5.I was brought up on a tiny
island, but I now live in Glasgow for university
6.I’m a huge Manchester City fan,
and our dad brought my brother and me up that way… Forever grateful for his
7.I like to claim that I’m really
exotic as my maternal grandfather’s side of the family are Ghanaian, but I’m
actually really stereotypically Scottish thanks to my dad’s side haha
8.I would be a Disney Princess if
it were possible
9.I’m naturally a whole mix of
hair colours – brunette base with blonde and red through it, though now I
couldn’t even pinpoint what colour it is now. Brunette, red in natural light
and blonde appears every so often?
10.I’m definitely a pink girl. I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of
pink since my Barbie days
11.I swear everyone says it, but I couldn’t live in a world without
12.I’m obsessed with Lush products, and can’t wait to move into our new
flat – it has a bath! (yay)
13.I’m actually a naturally outgoing person, but I worry waaay too much
about what people think. Definitely needs to stop
14.I’d love to travel the world once I graduate, though I don’t think I
could ever permanently move from Britain. Also, I’m pale and Scottish – it
takes like two hours of sun to make me look like a lobster
15.I would love to have a YouTube channel at some point – I did try it
out when I was like 14, but I’d probably be a whole load more serious about it
this time round!
16.I’m determined to own a Mini Cooper at some point in my life –
preferably when I actually have the money and no student expenses to worry
17.If someone bought me a Pomeranian, I would love them forever
18.It’s only just recently been brought to my attention that I will be
bought into anything. Recently as in last night, where I went out in search of
glitter foam and came back with a bike horn, an Easter rabbit headband and
19.I love love love printing out photos just to have them to keep. It’s
easy enough to just upload them onto Facebook or whatever, but I love having
them up just to reminisce and I’ve even ended up trying to fill my wall board
thing in my halls room with them all – more on that later haha
20.I love music festivals, though I’ve never been able to go to any of
the big weekend-long ones. I’ve got tickets for T in the Park this summer
though, so hopefully that won’t be true come July!
I think that’s it for now haha, I was
literally sitting trying to come up with ideas for posts and kept thinking “have
I mentioned this before? ... no… what about this? Wait, what have I mentioned?”
Gaaawd. Anyway, now you’re informed!
Btw, what I was going to expand on with no.19
was that I’ve just come across this amazing app called “FreePrints” (http://www.freeprintsapp.co.uk)– I’m not
entirely sure how well known it is just now, but it’s so good – you can pick up
to 45 photos to have printed off for FREE every month, and all you have to do is pick out
which ones and put in your delivery address. There’s a delivery fee but it’s never any
more than £3.99, obviously depending on what you’ve ordered and what class of
delivery you’ve picked. I’m currently waiting on my first order, so I’ll maybe
do a review when they come through!
It’s been nearly a month since my last post…
I feel so bad!
To be fair, it’s been a mad month of no
sleep, stress and feeling like I’m ready to rip my hair out… but I think I’ve
just about made it out okay!
University’s starting to wrap things up so
the workload has increased like 100x, which has pretty much been the entire
cause of the stress, but me and my friends have also been freaking out about
finding a place for next year. We’re all in student halls just now seeing as we’re
in first year, but we really wanted to find a flat of our own for next year, so
we’ve spent weeks searching for somewhere. We had a flat viewing on Friday at
one that we really, REALLY wanted, which I was going to put on here but I didn’t
want to jinx it… But we got it!!
This is the living room - isn’t it so cute!? I’m determined that we’re
having a vintage themed living room, not sure how everyone else feels about
that but I really think the windows would suit it. Gaaah I’m just so happy
right now. It was a really panicky situation cause there was a load of us all
after it, but we’ve said that we’ll move in next month so we’re all just so
relieved that we’ve secured somewhere.
That’s literally all I’ve done the last few
weeks, so it’s a really short post for now but I figured I should update where
