Picture Perfect Polaroids*

Summer is a great time to show off your home, the garden is full of flowers that are looking the best and everywhere just looks better with that summer sun shining through! I was recently send a Instax Mini* To show off my house and share the images with you! I decided on the colour light blue and I love the colour, it is definitely a summer colour! 

Here are some of the images I have taken, I had so much fun organising my rooms and making sure I got the perfect picture, this was also the first time I have ever used a Instax Mini so I loved learning all about it and it was so much fun to take the picture and instantly have a printed version. 
I think now a days it is all too easy to take thousands of pictures on digital cameras but never get around to having them printed and I think it is really important to have printed photos and cherish the memories from them. 

I take massive pride in my house and love to share off all the new interior products, so getting the chance to actually appreciate my house in photos was a really great experience! 
Recently I have been redecorating and just adapting my house to reflect more of my personality and I think this shows in the pictures, I love the picture of my garden and think its a really cute photo! 

This post is in conjunction with a project from Ocean Loans, the main aim of the project is to celebrate our homes this summer and to take pride in every element from the garden to your office! Our homes can offer so many great pictures from family pictures from your living room to wildlife photography in your garden. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! What is your favourite place in your home and where would you take a photo if you could choose anywhere? Let me know in the comments! 

*Disclaimer, I was sent the Instax Mini to use to take images around my home but all views and words in the post are my own*

Dropping out of University

I like to think of myself as a very positive person. I always try and look on the bright side and appreciate the small things in life that make me happy. This past year has been one of my worst years, I dreaded getting up in the mornings and I just felt pretty crap and miserable. I was constantly stressed out over exams and coursework deadlines and I slowly started to stop seeing my friends. I was not myself at all and this was clear to everyone around me, except me.

Deep down I knew where all the feelings were coming from but I didn’t want to admit it and let myself down but most importantly anyone else down. I had been struggling with university for the majority of the year and although I love all the friends I made there I couldn’t find one other positive thing about the course.

I decided I will not be returning to university and I think it is going to be the best decision I have made. I already feel like myself again and a massive weight has been lifted, I’m not ruling out ever going back to university but for the minute I don’t want to return and that’s okay.

I’m not someone who gives up things lightly either I like to stick things out till the end but I have never ever been so unhappy in my life. My course was awful, tutors wouldn’t turn up and if you read my post about Poland you will know how the other students treated me.

I have realised that there is more to life than just studying and that’s okay! Not everyone will choose the same path in life, there are so many routes to get to the same place, it might take longer but you will still get there if you set your mind too it.

I know this is probably a bit of a rambly post but I thought I would share a life update to let you know where I am at. Life is too short so I’m not going to please others, I am going to start doing things that make me happy and get to be where I want to be regardless of what other people think.
