Today I welcomed the return of my favourite season, started back at Uni, and embraced student life with a customary gossip and mooch around town. The first day back is always a weird one, isn't it? Feels like I've forgotten how to concentrate for more than ten minutes on something that isn't a film or other tele-visual entertainment! Lucozade in copious amounts was much needed.

Nothing new to see as usual! There's a student shopping lock-in event at West Quay on Thursday (or so I'm told!) which is exciting, I'll probably head over after lectures with my student loan in hand and stock up on some essentials and generic cosy clothing goods! Really want to have a look in H&M for basics, and in Topshop for something to make me smile. Today I wore a little dress, which is literally "little" because it keeps shrinking in the wash to the point of indecency, and my trusty Boohoo jumper. Love these colours together at the moment! No jewellery except for my little white gold ring: my Grandad gave this to my Mama for her 21st birthday, and she passed it down to me before I moved back for Uni, d'aw.

Had two of my first lectures today, which were Publishing the Package, and Fashion Analytics. I say this every year, but I'm genuinely excited to get going with my modules this year. I'm also studying Buying, Forecasting and Trend Analysis, which I'm most excited for, I think. PtP is pretty much a blogging module, and I've been told to compare and contrast three blogs for next week which is crazy! I'm half expecting to see some familiar faces in my lectures!

I also came home to a little package from the lovely Skye today. She designed and made me a little Hufflepuff Hogwarts crest! Needless to say, it is now sitting in pride of place on my bedroom wall, I can't wait to phone my Mama and tell her all about my new Hogwarts/Uni escapades haha. In other news, Archie has taken to spending his days curled up in my throw, laddering my tights for me so I don't have to, and napping on my windowsill. So adorable! Anyway, I'm going to go and rearrange my furniture (pretty standard Uni student practice in times of boredom) and then rustle up something for dinner! Hope everyone is having a lovely start to the week!

  19. Btw I'm not sure why links aren't working when posting them on the comment field on your blog - doesn't seem to happen anywhere else for me! The link I posted to my blog above is redirecting/meshing with your blog's post and the link I'm trying to post. Just FYI... it's not working :x

  20. Thanks for all of your lovely comments girls! In case anyone was wondering, the phone case was just from eBay, if you have a smartphone, they are pretty easy to find it you type Rabbito phone case into the search (: xo

  22. So cute and casual! I approve of the polka dots especially (as usual). Archie's adventures with your legwear sound super adorable, hahaha. What a little menace, and I want a Slytherin cross-stitch!

  23. As soon as I saw this, I guessed it was the Primark Dress ! It's so nice when it's paired with that jumper ! Isn't it too hot in the U.K to wear it at the moment ?
    It's a gorgeous outfit though, looks really comfy !
