Week 9

This week my second essay of semester two was due. I am feeling a bit stressed about exams as they are approaching way faster than I expected. I just want to stay in college forever. 

I received this as a present from my cousin. SO EAGER. It makes me feel so summery. Perks of summer - in season watermelon that's slightly cheaper. 

The evenings are noticeably brighter and I'm thankful. I hate the period where it gets dark around 4pm. I always get so unproductive around that time of year.

I went for lunch with my parents to Fioretina, Dublin. This was my stater: beetroot, rocket, goats cheese and walnut. I got crab gnocchi for my main. 

Birthday gifts. 

I filled up my Kokoro loyalty card and got a free hot bento. I am so eager about this place. I really want to go down near closing because everything is half price then !! They also got a new veggie bento option - butternut squash curry which I can't wait to try. 

The lovely people at Revive Active sent me a gift! For a while I had really low energy and I had tried loads of things to try and improve it - teas and other energy supplements. Someone recommended I try Revive Active and it is a game changer. It appears to be a product that is backed up by a lot of research. I can't tell you much about the science behind it all but all I know is it works for me !!! I take it with orange juice because I am not great at drinking drinks that are powder dissolved in water BUT I can drink this with orange juice no problem. I might start trying it with just water now that I am getting used to it though!!! This is what is going to get me through my final year exams. My sister is taking it daily too - she is doing her leaving cert.

I got some new sports gear (leggings etc) and this pastel purple sports top from H&M. I personally find exams really draining so I have to literally TRAIN for them haha. I want to start being more active in the run up to exams. My aim is to be as healthy as possible for the exams - especially being my final year. 

I am so eager for this range to come out in H&M. I want it all!!!!!!

My guilty pleasure!! I got these for my birthday - don't worry I am not that crazy that I would buy this many. UGh I didn't win anything. The THRILL THO hahah.

I have started using gel eyeliner more often. I love it but it's so much more effort than the liquid liner pens....So keeping my liquid liner for those 9am lectures. 

This emoji symbolises how I feel about the library!!! I have a love/hate relationship with study. I really enjoy my course and I can study what interests me for hours but doing an essay this week that I am not interested in at all and its a draggggggg. 

Sent a letter to my mum because I wont get to see her for Mother's day. I also love snail mail.

I went for a drink with an old friend in the Porter house pub this week and it was so nice!! The best thing about meeting old friends is spending hours talking about old memories - We spent 3 hours talking non stop!!

This weekend I plan to spend 90% of my time in the library to make up for my lack of study last week (and last month). Feeling positive and motivated.

Week 8

This week was a bit of a roller coaster. Some highs and some lows.

I got my eyebrows done for free at Benefit because it was my birthday. I was so pleased that I spotted this offer as I always notice 'birthday offers' when my birthday is nowhere near close. As per usual they did a perfect job. Right now this is the only place I go to get my brows done because of their expertise when it comes to brows and they have a pretty bomb loyalty card - next time I go in I will get a free shellac mani because of it.

I visited my boyfriends family home in Dundalk and his brother made us 
home-made granola and his mum bought us a tonne of fresh fruit. For college students like us this is v. luxurious.

I had an essay due so this week was coffee filled. I have started drinking Starbucks filter coffee because: its cheaper, free refills and its so much more flavoursome. SO over lattes, mochas and all other sugar filled coffees they do. The cost and the cals are TOO HIGH.

I got my nails done at Tropical Popical. I got gel nails - plain black. Last time I got gel nails done I felt they were too 'in your face' and I wanted to get something more toned down - very unlike me but that was just the mood I was in. The girls at Tropical Popical are so friendly and talented. Also the d├ęcor is to die for. They pay so much attention to detail. They offer you a Lilt as soon as you arrive. V. Tropical. I also got to read Kim K's interview and cover shoot for Love magazine while there which was a sneaky bonus.

I went to TRASH club night in the Academy on Thursday night.
I won bottle service and free in with their Twitter account.
I got some bad news while I was getting ready to go out and I was nearly going to stay in but with a lil pep talk from Eoghan and a vodka & cranberry I was convinced to go. I was so glad I did. As soon as we got their we skipped the line and were brought to our table and given absolute & diet coke. The music was on point (until one DJ came on and kept cutting songs short and playing The Killers - I just gave up trying to dance to that ha!). They have massive blow up toys and bouncy balls thrown into the dance floor. Also the toilets in the academy are the best - weird I know but I am so over night clubs in Dublin with awful bathrooms. These ones were v. clean and pretty big. I remember going to the Button Factory for The Malibu Club and they took the locks off the doors - I do not appreciate having to 'danger pee'. 

Hangover treats to help cure a hangover from hell - but a sign of a good night!!
I am 22 now. Yikes.
