1. The gorgeous Autumn foliage in Southampton's Hogland Park. I walk through this every day to get to Uni, and it looks so pretty at the moment!

2. Just a little something for all the typography lovers out there ;) This is the cover for my Uni photography research portfolio. Font is called "Eminent" if you're interested, and can be downloaded on

3. Made a ham and cheese toastie. It got a little bit burnt. Oops.

4. I finally got round to buying the new 'I' newspaper. Despite it being a quick read, a bit like the Metro in London, I didn't really like the style of writing and will probably stuck to the Daily Mail for my news!

5. Stories like these (found in 'I', actually) make it all worth reading news stories throughout the week! Hands up if you're excited for Harry Potter!

6. Made this for lunch on Thursday, recipe as by my lovely friend Emily! Toast with a layer of pesto and grated cheese on top, grilled for 10 minutes. Absolute. Heaven.

7. I made this bracelet last night. Keep an eye out on the blog next week for this little beauty.
