daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: week in photos, photo diary, university, southampton solent, what i wore
Pain au chocolat and a latte at Pret with Mandy · Outfit from Monday · It was sunny in Southampton, so beautiful · Procrastinating revision by watching Made in Chelsea in pyjamas · Ended up using this case in my law exam - Harry Potter til I die · Journaling happy lists · My third year mantra appears to have worked, just about · Catching up with Big Bang's World Stage on MTV · My final year work ready to hand in (sans magazine...) · Printing shenanigans in my room · Revision hair · Post-nine-hour-exam, frazzled face · Trying these MUA products out to review! · A celebratory Domino's · Bought some UO goodies yesterday, and also caved and bought my first Liz Earle product.

I officially finish University on the 9th May, so this week's photo diary is an obligatory mass of panic, procrastination and printing. Hola celebratory Domino's! I've been a bit all over the place this week, and am currently sitting in my bedroom, utterly refusing to pack to move home. Oh Southampton, it's a been a long three years...  As you can imagine, I haven't really been lugging my camera out with me, so we have one too many Instagram snaps to gawp at today, but it's a pretty accurate insight into what my week looked like.

Seriously looking forward to a night of weekend 'talent' shows and The Only Way Is Essex tonight. I think I need a hobby or something (aside from my blog) now that I don't need to spout theories about authorship and discourse, or remember anything remotely related to contempt of court. So far I'm considering watching paint dry and knitting(!) What are your hobbies aside from blogging? Going to the gym doesn't count!

Finally, I know every British blogger under the (non-existent) sun has been talking about it this week, but the Cosmo Blog Awards 2012 are here already and it would mean the world to me if you could pop over and nominate Daisybutter.com in the Established (oo-er!) Fashion Blog category. There are hundreds of amazing blogs out there, but it'd be ever so lovely to be recognised for something that I love doing!

  1. Since I left uni I've been baking a lot more than normal! I did buy a cross-stitch kit shortly after I left but it's been notably neglected since then!

  3. Okay that Dominos meal has me really hungry, and it's 10.30 at night! Ah, it's crazy that you're almost finished with uni, so exciting. I tried to think up some hobbies I like that don't involve the internet... and I have firghteningly few, actually. Reading and eating, I suppose, haha.

    1. Hahaha sorlee ^____^" hadn't had one in so long, but I figured that post-9 hour exam would be reason enough to order in :P I know, it's so scary, but exciting at the same time, I've grown so much while being at University, that I feel like I've outgrown my surroundings. Haha same, eating and reading are my other hobbies atm! xx

  5. I've already said it, but well done querida, it's amazing to be done with it all and here's to the next chapter.

    As for hobbies... since mine are my blog and watching whole TV series in a weekend, I'm probably not the best one to comment...

  7. Oh man, I miss uni, it was so hard and sad packing up all my things and saying goodbye to student life and my awesome housemates. At the beginning, 3 years seem like so far away but by the end, it's over in a blink of an eye and a very full car full of your worldly possessions. Hope you have fun in your final few days and celebrate properly :)

  8. That pain au chocolat and latte looks divine! It may seem like way too much effort, but I started playing the guitar a couple of years ago through teachers on Youtube and I honestly couldn't imagine my life now without it! You should give it a go :) xx

    1. It was SO so good haha, I can always count on Pret for some weekend eatin' on the go! Oh that's such a good idea (: I think I have a spare guitar in my attic at home actually! Failing that, I might resurrect my piano playing and learn myself a few new songs... xx

  11. Now now, knitting is a worthy hobby! I understand what you mean though, I need to find another pastime and I'm not sure if Zumba is enough! Well done on finishing everything and I hope you enjoy the last few days, feel like I didn't make the most of mine as I was delirious from no sleep!

    1. Hahaha <3 I'm a knitter myself, to be honest! It's been a good two years or so since I picked up the needles though. Gosh I wish I had the motivation to join a Zumba class, attempting it on the Wii is more than enough for me :P thanks Kbel, am soaking up the long hours of nothing before throwing myself into the world of work! xx
