Sick Tings 019

24 June 2018

A lifestyle roundup of my week at university featuring all I've bought, watched, eaten, seen and been up to. Featuring my first ever blog giveaway, a trip to Ikea and a gin filled afternoon at the pub with my dad
Ahh, don't you lot worry, I haven't forgotten about you since my brief Love Island twitter 'fame' this week. For those of you that don't follow me over there, I tweeted about missing Love Island on a Saturday, Love Island's official twitter retweeted it and it's fair to say my phone started blowing up. I'm used to 3 likes max and maybe a RT if I'm lucky, so the 183 retweets and 1796 likes was definitely a shock to my notifications. I'll link the tweet here if you're interested. 

On Sunday I worked an earlier shift than usual so was left with a half a day of freedom in Southampton. So, I headed to IKEA for a wander in the hopes of gaining some inspiration for when we move house in a fortnight or so. I didn't end up buying a lot, only a cushion and some fake flowers/plants. I did, however, have a hotdog and cinnamon bun on the way out so all was not lost, the latter are some top tier stuff. The current plan for my new bedroom is a boho theme maybe... I'm not sure, I'm hoping a few more hours of Pinterest scrolling will lead to the eureka moment. 

Last week I put a load of old clothes on Depop and slowly but surely they have been selling. I've been trying to get back into exercising every day, and have been combining the two and running to the post office with my Depop parcels and back. It's a couple of miles round trip and has made running a lot easier as it feels as though it has a purpose. Somehow I managed to pull my calf muscles this week, and so have spent the last few days hobbling around like a right goblin. Serves me right for trying to be too organised, hey? 

This week I hit 1k over on Instagram!!! I know it's not the biggest following ever, but for someone whose account is still relatively new, I'm really really proud! I'm hosting a giveaway over there right now and I'll link it here if you're interested. The prizes include a phone case of your choice courtesy of Caseapp, and a load of beauty products including some Stila, Rituals and Ren. 

The weather has been incredible this week, so I've been spending a fair amount of time out in the sun. I finally managed to catch up with my 'home friends' this week. We did our usual; head to the beach for some daytime drinking. It was bliss. We literally only see each other a handful of times a year now that we're at uni all over the country, but it's always so so nice when we do get the chance to catch up. This week I also went for drinks with my parents, and it was super nice to drink pink gin in a pub garden of a summers evening. Lush. If you still haven't tried pink gin, do it, it's life-changing. 

Since having a garden at uni this year, it's fair to say I've got in quite a lot of practice at BBQ-ing. So much so that I had a BBQ with my parents this week and was in charge of everything - something I've never done before, it's usually my Dads specialty.

Now, my sister and I didn't go to the same upper school, so I'm sure it'll come as no surprise that we have very separate social circles. Anyway, over the last week and a bit, four separate people have approached her to ask about me. We're both equally as shocked about this as we don't think we look anything alike? She's the other girl in the above photo and I'd love to hear your thoughts. How are all these people that don't know her but know me putting the two together?...

What have you been up to this week?

  1. Congrats on hitting 1K over on Insta! I've been debating selling clothes on Depop for ages. I have way too many clothes sat in my wardrobe which I literally never wear, I need to get round to selling them! Also planning on having plenty of BBQs this week since the sun's meant to be coming out again. Loved this post! X

  2. That feeling when your tweet goes viral, basically famous. Where’s your PLT deals at? I feel like the only person who doesn’t like IKEA, I hate the layout and there’s too much going on to find anything BUT I do love the meatballs, who doesn’t love meatballs? Congratulations on hitting 1K on Instagram, well deserved! We’re having a heatwave this week so more nights in the garden drinking whichever alcohol I can find in the pantry 🙌🏾 You and your sister definitely look alike! People always say my sister and I look alike and I’m like erm no but you can tell we’re related? I feel like it’s the same with you and your sister. Last week, I had 2 blogging days, 4 days at work, i got my first tattoo and went to a bbq on Sunday, perfect way to end a long week! Looking forward to your next updates Becca :D
