What Makes Me Happy

*Sings Happy by Pharrell Williams*

Sometimes when I'm having a down day I need a few pick-me-ups, I've had a rough few days filled with work, a couple of 'let downs' and just an overall feeling of sadness. To give myself a boost I try and list all the things that are amazing in my life, and I read them over and over again until I'm starting to feel better about myself.

I thought I'd share with you some of the things that bring me happiness when I'm feeling low.

5 Wants Under £20: ASOS Curve

1 | 2  | 3  | 4  | 5 
Today's retailer in my 'five wants under £20' is ASOS. I adore ASOS Curve, I've been a fan for a while now and I love the fact they have so many plus-size brands under one roof. I decided to stick to ASOS/ASOS curve items instead of branching out to all the different brands they stock and there were my faves. I actually wish I had the money to just buy everything. It's a hard life being a student!

London Gay Pride 2015

London Gay Pride 2015 stage with gay pride flags
Yesterday was officially Pride Day in London, and like every year I just had to go and celebrate pride. I love pride day so much as the day is filled with good vibes, everyone is so happy and love is just in the air. It is the only day we are allowed to sit in the road in Westminster and drink alcohol without the police stopping us.

One of the best things about this years pride is the fact on Friday 26th (day before pride) gay marriage was declared legal across the US! This gave everyone an extra reason to celebrate.

OOTD: Cartoon Swing Dress

Multicoloured Floral Cartoon All Over Print Swing Dress print
Earlier on in the week I bought myself this beautiful Cartoon Swing Dress and I couldn't wait to put it on and show you guys. I'm not normally a fan of swing dresses as they make me look bigger than what I actually am and I am not normally a fan of wild/bright eye-catching patterns but I fell in love with this dress the second I saw it. Unfortunately Yours never had my size so I had to order in my size and had to wait three days which was like a child waiting for Christmas!

5 Wants Under £20: Forever21+

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 

Today's retailer is Forever 21+, they have to be my favourite plus-size store ever. I love the concept behind Forever 21+, I feel like they don't care about standards. They make bikinis, short shorts, crop tops and all other things that most people would say "you're too fat to wear" and I love that. I'm 21 not 91 I want to look sexy and wear what everyone else is wearing!

Blogging Tips: What Stops Return Visitors

I can't act like I have 1000s of readers who are loyal and read my blog daily but I know as a blog reader there are so many things that put me off reading a blog again or even giving the blog a second chance. There are loads of blog posts that tell you the obvious things like 'lack of content', 'slow/unattractive theme', 'being the same as every other blogger' and more but these things (listed below) are my personal pet peeves and I'm sure others will be annoyed with them too. 

I will refuse to return to your blog because of one of the following....

What To Wear To Your Graduation

My graduation may be in 15 months but I'm already starting to think about my graduation dress. I recently found out I am well on my way to a upper 2nd class honors (2:1) as long as I keep my grades up in my final year starting October. I'm so fussy when it comes to things like this that I know it will take me forever to find my perfect dress that I look and feel beautiful in. I know I'd of lost some weight by then but a girl can still dream and look.

Unfortunately as you can see my universities academic dress is navy and orangey/red depending on your degree, which would not only clash with my hair but many colours I love wearing. *cries* I've never really been a fan of orange so I'm already against my academic dress.

My Illustration by Murder of Goths

Yesterday I had a super long, boring day at work and I was feeling so down. My feet were killing, I dropped shoes and a metal bar on my head, lost my locker keys and so many customers were testing my patience. When I got out of work I switched my phone on and done the normal rounds of checking messages, email, Facebook, Twitter and then Instagram. I noticed I had loads of likes, follows AND I had been tagged in a post... It always worries me when I'm tagged in a post, some of my friends upload some very unflattering pictures then I noticed it was the lovely Murder of Goths who had tagged me. If you remember back to my interview week Murder of Goths was interviewed on day five and you can read it here

Anti Bucket List

My bucket list is a major feature on my blog at the moment as I have 21 things I'd like to do before my 22nd birthday in September as well as an overall 30 things I'd like to do before I turn 30. But I decided with my bucket list comes an anti-bucket list. Which is a list of things I never want to do before I turn 30 or before I die. A few of these things you'd find on any 'normal' person's bucket list, but not mine. You can stay away from my bucket list you horrid things!
