Sick Tings 015

27 May 2018

A lifestyle roundup of my week at university featuring all I've bought, watched, eaten, seen and been up to. Featuring mutiny music festival, a blogger event with Kaye Ford and a walk as the sun set
This week has been a rollercoaster of doing really fun things combined with not moving away from a textbook for a solid 8 hours. Pls can summer hurry up because I want tonnes more of the former and none of the latter please and thank you.

I attended a bloggers event this week hosted by Bournemouth Bloggers. It was held at The Kings Arms Hotel in Christchurch in one of their swanky function rooms. There were drinks and nibbles, and plenty of mingling to be done with the other 20-odd bloggers that attended. We had a presentation from Kaye Ford of Fordtography (aka that camera wizard currently shooting alllllllll those beautiful bloggers' photos) and it was genuinely really inspiring. So much so that this summer I am absolutely going to get into using my camera again, properly. I'm going to learn what every single button, dial and setting does and I'm also going to try my best not to use auto ever again. I've also decided that one day I am going to have Kaye shoot some photos for me. I think could do with some of those dreamy blurry aesthetic-y shots. 

My housemate and I went on a little adventure this week, I mean, I say adventure, it was nothing crazy, we only went the other side of Southampton. But we drove to a park the and watched the sun set, and it was bliss. It was all a bit last minute but we managed to get some beautiful shots, even if she was in pj bottoms and my hair was the same grease level as a chip fryer. For those of you Soton dwellers, the park in question is Royal Victoria Country Park and is highly worth a visit on a sunny day. 

Other more boring waffle aside, it's time for the pièce de résistance: Mutiny Festival 2018. I went to Mutiny last year for the whole weekend, camping included, and had the best time, and it's fair to say I wasn't let down this year either. My friends and I only bought tickets for the Saturday due to other plans as well as being slightly sensible and considering our impending exams. We had the best day ever in the sun, grooving all day, chilling in VIP and sipping bevs. I'm going to do a whole separate post on my outfit, which I absolutely loved after all the hassle I went through trying to find one, so do look out for that soon. The highlight of the day was of course SASASAS who I actually saw fairly recently which you can read about here. The whole day was just really really good fun, and I can guarantee I will be there doing it all over again next year.

This week a slightly controversial post went live - Blogging & Narcissism. This whole idea stemmed from a conversation I had with one of my housemates and I'd love to hear your input on the whole thing... Is blogging narcisstic in its very nature? Are we all just a a bit self-obsessed?  Lemme know


  1. I bet mutiny was amazing, I can't wait to get to a festival and have the time of my life!
