Summertime is probably one of my favourite times of the year. As much as I am a Winter baby, the sunshine and travels are what really excite me and what I always have on countdown. Summer is the season of happiness, where everything and everyone seems to be full of life and relaxation – I just love it. It makes me feel a little tingly inside. 2017 is the year of so many new and exciting things, and I’m so ready for this summer.
Every year since I can remember I’ve attended a music festival of some kind and this year (like last) I’m heading to Wireless again. I’m not one of those 5-day-festival kinda girls, so a day festival like this is perfect for me. It’s a London based festival with all kinds of acts, generally pop to hip-hop artists, and this year headliners include The Weeknd, Bryson Tiller and Skepta. This year I’m heading there on the Sunday, the day before I go on holiday so it’s all super exciting! I also love finding festival outfits and makeup looks, so if you know any good ones then give me a shout, I’m on a hunt.
As much as I like to be super busy with a million things on my to-do list (I know, mad aren’t I), it’s so nice to know I am done with education. This Summer I’m looking forward to doing things for me and the things on my to-do list will be things I want to achieve instead of completing essays and work, which is so refreshing. This freedom won’t last long before I look for a full-time career, but I’m going to suck up every moment of freedom I can.
A CARIBBEAN DREAM
I am a huge travel junkie, and when I have the time and money to go on a trip I always try to. I’m on of those who would rather save and spend my earnings on travelling rather than buying bits for myself, as after all it is those memories you will hold on to. This Summer I am heading to the Dominican Republic and with it being my first ever time to the Caribbean, you can just imagine how much I want to get there already. I can’t wait to take some chill time after the last stressful but fun three years at University, and also soak up some sun. I’m sure it’ll be over my Instagram and blog, so stay tuned!
Yes, you may have already figured out that I finished my degree this year, which means I’ll be graduating! I completed a BA (Hons) in Media and Cultural Studies and quite honestly, I enjoyed every single minute of it. I love to learn and I loved finding my confidence throughout University. It’s quite scary the thought of graduating but it’s a day to showcase and be proud of my achievements!
CHANGING UP MY INSTRAGRAM FEED
As a treat to myself for finishing my degree, I purchased the Olympus Pen EPL-8 in white and all of my dreams have come true. I’ve been a Canon DSLR girl for a couple of years now, but since having this it mean I can always take a quality camera on the go with me. Days out in London and wherever I venture to will be documented more, and with my new 45mm lens* it means I can finally get all those drool-worthy Instagram shots. I’m hoping this will make me more confident and motivated with my Instagram, so watch this space!
What are you looking forward to this Summer?
