Hey Everyone! Hope you've all had a good week :)
Mine's been so nice relaxing and not having to revise or stress about anything!

A few weeks ago I went shopping and I found this pretty dress in H&M, it's only £10 and I got 20% off at the time so it was such a bargain! I love these kinds of dresses and it's so similar to a few I already own but they're so comfy and pretty so why not!

As the weather is getting warmer.. sort of haha! Hopefully it stops raining and the sun comes out, I decided to keep my outfit plain and not wear tights. I wore my trusty little Primark shoes, my big gold disk earrings are also from Primark, I love these as they're a really nice goldeny brown and they are sooo lightweight, so really easy to wear. I also wore my little gold apple necklace from Accessorize :)

At the back of our Uni there is a little hidden garden. A while back I took photos in front of it as it's closed on a weekend but last week we ventured inside. It's so peaceful and hidden away and it's actually really big! There are a few trails that lead round so you can walk in different directions or benches where you can sit down to relax :) I think it's nice that not many people know about it, I only found out about it earlier this year, so it means that it doesn't get busy :)

End of Uni!

Top- Hollister
Jeggings- Tesco
Shoes- Primark
Neclace- Accessorize
I did ittt! I've finished Uni! After a very stressful few weeks I finally finished all my exams and now I can relax :) I find out how I did in about 4 weeks time so fingers crossed! Although I'd be surprised if I don't have a 2:1 which I am extremely happy with XD


Jumbled Juleps
 I finished on Thursday and I was dead, I was so tired so I got into bed early and watched some films :') Crazy student life haha! But on Friday I woke up pretty early and went to do some shopping XD In the evening Emily and I headed out to Turtle Bay for cocktails as it was 2 for 1, we got the usual Jumbled Juleps but then she also introduced me to the Passion Rum Punch and I think it is my new favourite :) Afterwards we headed out to Vodka Revs for some dancing before calling it a night :)

The next morning we decided to go for Brunch at Trago Lounge, it was such a great idea! Emily got the Lounge Breakfast and I got the Lounge Eggs, both were good although annoyingly the toast and muffins were a bit burnt, which is annoying, I don't see why restaurants serve it when it's obviously burnt :') But we were both starving and it took a while coming out so we didn't bother complaining as we didn't want to wait longer :') Then last night I watched the Eurovision haha!

It feels so nice to be relaxing and not doing anything! On Friday night I wore my new jumper from Primark, new bardot top from Hollister, Jeggings from Tesco, Shoes from New Look and Statement Necklace from Accessorize :)

Hope you've all had a good week! Hope your exams are going well if you have them and good luck! :)

Exploring Malta with a Minolta X300s

Malta Minolta X 300s DSLR Sightseeing

Hey Everyone! Hope you're all well! I'm busy revising away as I've got all my exams on consecutive days this week.. waah but afterwards I'll have finished forever! And I actually can't wait! Today's post will be a bit different as my boyfriend Pardis will be stepping in and he will be sharing some photos from his recent holiday to Malta! :)

Valletta

































Hello, I’m Pardis, the guy behind the camera. I went to Malta a few weeks ago with a new (really really really old) film camera that I bought over eBay. It's a great place for sightseeing, especially due to the traditional architecture that they've preserved, and we visited some of the forts and markets on the island. I had the film recently processed and the photos turned out great for such a cheap camera so Nev’s asked me to share! Hope you enjoy!

Red Fort
























This was a fort on top of a hill to the north of Malta that was basically used centuries ago to watch out for pirates and raiders from the sea. I lost my parents on the way to it after making a detour to an abandoned building but found they’d already reached the fort so I thought it’d be the perfect time for a snap (my dad’s at the bottom left).

For this shot I was actually just using the viewfinder to have a look at the other side of the island through the camera. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed the ship slowly rolling in and as soon as it came into view of the viewfinder I noticed how cool the red looked against the blue so I rolled the film and pressed the shutter! I think it made for a pretty nice photo with the contrasting colours.

On this day we went to visit one of the markets further to the south of the island. As we got to the end of the market we saw an awesome view of dozens of quirky looking boats littering the water. I only had space for a few more photos on the roll of film but I thought the view was definitely worth it. 

Thank you Pardis for sharing these photos, I hope you all enjoyed the post! The photos came out really cool and actually quite good considering they were done on film! I'm looking forward to going on holiday this summer and relaxing :) I'll be back to posting next week, in the meantime I hope you all have a lovely week! :)

I love this little skirt from H&M, it's so lightweight and comfy yet really pretty and flattering, I literally wore it all summer :) I decided to wear it with my white New Look crop top :) This was probably my go to summer outfit and I can't wait until it's warmer so I can wear it again!

Notting Hill- Portobello Road Market


Hey Everyone! Hope you're all well :)
A few weekends ago I attended a #BloggersGetHulaFit event at Notting Hill so Pardis and I decided we might as well visit Portobello Road Market before hand as we'd both never been. PS. Apologies for the picture heavy post! :)

We decided to get off at Notting Hill Gate Station and we weren't sure where to go but we just followed the masses of people. It was soo busy! But it was exciting at the same time. The market was a short walk away and there were so many quirky stalls and shops everywhere. Some stalls had really cool stuff and quite a lot had bric-a-brac and odd bits and bobs, but it was cool to see :)

It was really weird, some places wouldn't let you take photos but I don't really know why XD Our ideas were.. they weren't allow to sell those items, they were fake, they didn't want people stealing their ideas or simply it annoys them when people take photos but don't buy anything.. I don't know, do you know? XD


After a while all the vintagey looking things stopped and there were loads of food stalls, it all smelt soo good but we didn't get anything as I was about to go to a fitness class and then go to lunch afterwards XD


Finally, we made our way towards the building where the event was taking place and we found this really cool painted wall so we decided to take some photos there!


It was a really fun day and I'm in love with the pretty houses painted in every colour, it just made everything look so much nicer! Especially with the pink blossom trees everywhere! Have you ever been to Portobello Market? :)

Thank you Pardis for being my photographer :)
