Hey Sweeties,

My current house has been my home for 13 years, every wall, door and window has seen my tears and heard my laughs. Many memories have been created here, too many good and a few bad. When I was 9-12 years old I had the typical girly pink room, 13-20 my room has been purple and white.

But now it's time for a change as my mum and I are moving.
Closer to family.

All my life I've lived in a 3 bedroom house, now we're downsizing to a 2 bedroom ground floor flat.
My mum says it's a new chapter of her life, in this house her marriage broke down and her partner died, now she's on her own, obviously she still has me.

For me, it's a new start to make new friends, not always be late for lectures. A new chapter to start my impending adult life, yikes! The end of uni going out into the big wide world. I will be sad to leave this house but I'm also extremely excited to move, hello new bedroom!
 (It's all planned out and everything, in my head)

Now, the stress begins packing everything up and reminiscing, living out of boxes and decorating, basically not so much fun times ahead. 
Just got to keep thinking of the end product.

There'll be many stressed tweets and photographs on Instagram, so I'm apologising in advance!

Much Love,
M! xo

Vintage Fair

Hey Sweeties! 

Last year a few friends went to Judy's Affordable Fair and they loved it, but unfortunately I was at work so I couldn't go.

Then I seen on Facebook the other week that the fair was coming back to Newcastle. I completely forgot about it until a friend asked about it the night before!

The event was held at Northumbria SU, now you'd think being a student at Northumbria I'd know exactly where to go in actual fact I didn't have a clue!
 I study at a different campus and I'm completely rubbish at directions, thankfully a few friends were already there so they came and met me.

On arrival there was a table out front with two lovely ladies and the cutest tea cup set I've ever seen.
To get in it's £2 but £1 with student ID.

As soon as you walked in you were hit with old rusty vintage smell, which to some people is like mustard, either you love it or hate it. All around the room was racks and tables full of pretty patterned clothes and cute  jewels. I wish I had more money because I defiantly would've bought a LOT more, it's so affordable.

And I bought these:

Much Love,

Amsterdam buys!

Hey Sweeties!
The photographs are what I bought in Amsterdam.
How cute,
they are SO warm!!
I thought these were little ornaments but then saw that
 they were magnets, completely adorable. 
I bought these on the actual boat using up the last of my euros. Each bottle was 13 Euros :) 
Teal the cows come home & Dim Sum Plum.

I wish I had of spent more time actually in Amsterdam as I know there would've been a lot more than this.
Seriously love the clog slippers, I want some more!

Much Love,

Hey Sweeties!

I've just came back from Amsterdam for the weekend, in going I had two main intentions.
1. Sit in the clog.
2. Have a space cake
I am happy to say I completed both of these!

Every time, I see that one of my friends has been to Amsterdam they always have a picture of themselves sitting in this clog.

This was just a typical tourist fancy, one of which I shall not be doing again.
Within an hour of eating it I went dizzy, completely thirsty and was having difficulty breathing. 
I had to see someone as I was scared to sleep, no matter how much water I drank it wasn't enough.
The medical guy asked if it was my first time I replied yes and he just laughed!
Completely normal reaction he said. 

Naomi, Emily and I visited the sex museum, red light district a tattoo shop and done some shopping.

Sex Museum - It was ok, for 4 Euro you can't complain. There was a lot of pornography and figurines I won't be going back, once you've seen it you've seen it.
Red Light District - We wanted to know what all the hype was, Naomi got a map and asked. Heading in the direction shown we found them. Women standing in the windows and at the doors with just their underwear on. I didn't know where to look, couldn't look at them in the eye at all too embarrassed! 
Hanky Panky Tattoo Shop - Naomi said we should all get matching tattoo's (don't worry we didn't), in the end it was too expensive just for a tiny little butterfly. 

As I have too much uni work to do, I shall leave you with some photographs.
I'll do another post on what I bought :)

Much Love, 
M! xo
