Celebrate Good Times, C'mon!





So, I found out some VERY good news this week; I shall officially be graduating my degree with First class BA honours in Journalism and English! To say I'm happy, is an understatement. Uni was something I always knew I wanted to do, so to have passed at such a high level just blows my mind. 

Even though I'm no longer a student, I'm still just as poor as one. So despite desperately wanting to buy myself a treat, I can't afford to! :( Luckily, I was sent this lovely skirt from Pop Couture to take the edge off! Its a beautiful chiffon maxi skirt, with a cheeky underskirt in a gorgeous nude colour. I really like it and I like how it goes with my skin colour too. I wore it with a speckled dip hem top from New Look which I also wore in this post with a black maxi skirt. 

My heart ring, of course is from Marie Loves Jewellery ;) which you can find here. I thought the look was quite feminine so the pretty heart ring would accompany it quite well!



P.S, sorry if I sounded like I was bragging at all about my degree, just proud of myself for the first time ever!

P.P.S, I would just like to give a thank you to the talented Malia from Deep Fried Freckles, who ever so kindly sent me this wonderful illustration of myself! I will treasure it! It is a rarity, I think, to get to see yourself in the illustrated form! I have popped it in my side bar as my 'about me' picture as I don't want it to go to waste!

  25. Wow, well done! I did Journalism at uni, and I know how disheartening it can be when you have to study all the components that don't really interest you (for me that was media law - I'm much more into the actual 'doing' than the theory behind it!). Not sure if that was the case for you, but either way, it's not easy!
