Today was my first day back at university as a second year, as if that wasn't stressful enough I started at a different uni to last year as a transfer student. So as well as not knowing my way around the campus, I don't know anybody on my course! Luckily I seem to have become BFFs with my course leader/ personal tutor so at least I have one friend!
Because I'm knew to the uni I had to take part in some introductory lectures with the new freshers (who were all looking a bit worse-for-ware after a few heavy nights!), this made me feel a lot more at home because at least I knew some of the lecturers already and knew the ins and outs of a sports science degree. In one of the lectures we had to discuss what we knew about Biomechanics, and because I had already studied this module in first year I was singled out to tell everyone what I knew, kind of embarrassing there to start off as a know it all!
The most exciting part of the day was probably receiving my new student card (as my old one is for the wrong university now) which comes in a little wallet with a cute smiley face on the front. It was a mammoth task getting it though as everybody I went to see sent me off to see somebody else.
I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of this week and my next two years spent at this university.

After watching countless youtube videos with the beauty gurus (in particular 'makeupkatie95' and 'macbarbie07') raving over Maybelline's baby lips, they have finally brought them over to the UK!
As soon as I saw them appear in boots I just had to buy them, I got 'cherry me' and 'peach kiss'. They are honestly the best lip products out there, they are offer long lasting moisterisation and a subtle hint of colour..I can definitely see why beauty gurus have been raving over them for so long.
Next time i'm in boots i'm certainly going to purchase some of the other flavours/colours.
The other day I celebrated my 20th birthday (I know I may not look 20 but its true!). To put an immediate downer in the day I had to be up at 5:30am to be in work for staff training at 6! It wasn't too bad though as everyone sang Happy Birthday to me.
Later on when I got back from work I opened my presents, I received a white iphone 5 and case, as well as some bedding, bath/hair products and a gorgeous tortoise necklace off my sister.
My sister and I then spent the rest of the day shopping where I treated myself to a new pair of jack wills sweatpants as my primark ones should never be seen outside the house!
In the evening we went for a lovely family meal at a local Chinese restaurant where the food is to die for, literally the best Chinese food I have ever eaten in my life!
All in all I had an amazing birthday and I'm very thankful to have spent it with my nearest and dearest.

Last week I went on a family holiday to Jersey. It is such a gorgeous island with loads of beaches and plenty of sunshine.
On our first day we explored the capital, St Helier, which has all the main high street shops as well as some little independent stores. Over the next couple of days we ventured out into many of the other little towns on the island via the local bus services. Because Jersey is an island most of the towns are on the coast and therefore have great beaches with lovely views, made better by the sun.
On our third day we did an island boat tour which took two and a half hours and sailed around the coast showing us the historic features and scenery.
The last day we decided to visit the zoo as it is apparently world famous, and it definitely didn't disappoint. They don't have all the animals typically found at a zoo, but they specialise in gorillas, orang-utans and tortoises (all of my favourite animals!)
It was a great week spent with my family and I think we all enjoyed the stress free time spent away from work!
