♥ Current Loves

While I've been back in Birmingham I've been able to really indulge. I've treated myself to a new tattoo (and ruined my overdraft in the process) eaten loads of junk food and treated myself to some stuff I didn't need because I have similar products waiting for me back in Cornwall... But, I figure it's ok to treat myself while
I'm in Birmingham! It is my month off from the stress of uni, after all! 

First things first: FOOD! Being home is such a luxury because I don't have to buy my own food. There's no worrying about mouldy bread or gone off milk as my parents always see to those sorts of things and I don't have to pay to stock up a fridge. My mom and dad also get little treats in too, as they are aware I never treat myself at uni! Because of the time of year in England, in the run up to Easter Hot Cross Buns become widely available. This is brilliant because they're my favourite thing to have for breakfast! Sometimes I will treat myself to cinnamon and raisin bagels which are really similar in taste, but there is nothing like a hot cross bun covered in butter on a Sunday morning! 

Secondly, I dyed my ombre very blonde! It was a home job so it's far from perfect but this will give me a chance to get used to my hair being so light. Naturally I have quite dark brown hair so the blonde is quite shocking at the moment. I used a Jerome Russell Medium Lift Blonding Kit (the link is maximum as the medium isn't available online!) and I will soon be purchasing the same box dye again, along with a light ashy brown, and completely dying my whole head blonde and then working through light brown at the roots! It's going to take a few weeks to get my hair exactly how I want it but I've learnt to become patient. After all, going from a very dark brunette to blonde was never going to be easy. 

I gush about loving Birmingham to everybody. I've lived in the city my whole life and being away from such a busy place does dampen my spirits sometimes. Luckily during my first weekend back there was plenty of sunshine. Check the snap of Council House in the city centre! It was a really sunny spring afternoon and it just looked so pretty. Sadly, though, the fluzy fountain wasn't on so people were sat were there is normally a flow of water! After taking this picture I headed to lunch at Nando's - another thing I really miss when I'm in Cornwall as there isn't a Nando's down there.

Lastly, I've kicked myself back into the habit of drinking water. Lately my skin hasn't looked as nice as it could and I picked up a bottle of Glaceau's Vitamin Water in Defence for my walk home from work yesterday. The flavour for this one is raspberry and apple and it wasn't too overpowering but still really tasty. The brilliant thing about vitamin water is definitely that they're packed full of really good stuff for your body so if you're busy and know that you're not going to get all the vitamin c you need you can pick this up for £1 at Tesco at the moment!

Before I finish off this post I need to say a massive thank you to anyone and everyone who has followed my blog. It's in its very early days but I'm super excited about getting 40 followers in just over twenty days! Hopefully you'll all enjoy my content and I'll try my best not to feature products that have been tried and tested hundreds of times in similar blogs. I'm going to work out a blogging schedule and get really serious about my blogging as I feel like this could be the career for me when i leave university. For now, every other Thursday will see a 'Current Loves' post and I'll surely figure out some other weekly or monthly feature posts! Hope to chat to you all really soon!
