Dress £15 from Primark (on Asos)

I really don't suit hats :\

Graduation finally happened this saturday, feels like I've been waiting for it to happen for ages! me and my family drove down the friday night before hand so we could get there in good time for the morning ceremony. I was pretty nervous because I've never been to any graduation before, but it was a lovely day. I was on the front row in a big hall, so I was on stage 7th! which was a bit scary but I got to watch other people go before me, we got called out one by one and had to shake the chancellor and vice chancellors hands, then remain standing after we went back to our seats and they then said something in Welsh before we could sit down, it was all very formal and surreal!
They were filming the ceremony for a DVD which you could buy and being on the front row my face kept appearing on massive screens throughout the whole hour and a half! so hard not to burst out laughing! haha. Also had to look really interested at the not to interesting parts. The hall was boiling and wearing the hats only made it worse, but it was still pretty cool and I'm glad I went. Afterwards we had lunch at a local whetherspoons, nothing fancy but a cold pint was so well received after the stuff hot heat of the hall! Then we went home to change and spent the rest of the day at a beach near Conway in glorious sunshine, it was so relaxing and peaceful. Brilliant way to spend the afternoon, for tea we'd booked a meal out at a curry place called Spicy Vujon-if you're ever in Bangor check it out, it's excellent! Then back to the hotel for a much needed sleep, don't ever realise how much travelling and big events takes it out of you. It was a lovely day and I think it finished off my time in Wales perfectly, sunny, relaxed and slightly proud of myself! Now back to the job hunting task...which is slightly wearing me down :\

Little Spends

Even though I don't have a lot of money at the moment I could resist buying myself a few bits! the first is a clutch which I got from ebay, sadly I haven't yet had an occasion to wear it to but I think it'll be a nice edition to my wardrobe and I'll get a good few nights out with it! The pumps are ones I've wanted for ages, very late to the stud party but I'm finally there! plus they were a steal at £5 from Asda!

Life has been pretty boring at the moment, mainly been applying for jobs with little success and enjoying the nice weather alone (boo :( ) but I'm away for the weekend to graduate finally! dress has been bought, hotel book, meal booked and now all I have to do is turn up and wear the gown!

June Reads

So with being jobless and having a rubbish internet (can't watch any tv :( ) i've taken to reading again. When I was younger I used to whizz through books and really enjoyed it, i've got a little collection one ones I've bought myself and it was something I used to get a lot of enjoyment out of. Then, well I "grew up" and other things became more important, watching the latest ep of a tv show, films, social networking sites all that kind of electronic stuff that takes you away from sitting down and being able to let yourself be absorbed by a good book.

So far I've managed to read 3 books this month, not bad going considering I've not even read 3 in the past 3 years at uni! awful I know! I thought I'd start light and girlie, clearly these books aren't war and peace but it's a nice start to get myself back in to reading for longer chunks of time, as my concentration span has been awful with shiny fast tv shows and apps!

My thoughts on them all

  1. PS, I Love You- Very much a weepy girl book, but I loved it. I'm a sucker for a everlasting love kind of story and this was pretty sweet and cute. The main character is likeable and I was drawn in to the story and eager to find out how it was going to end actually. I can't say much because I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but a good read!
  2. A Place Called Home- This was totally not what I was expecting, the book is quite sureal and you'll have to go with the flow and be open to the weird going ons. Honestly, I felt a little let down in the end with the main womans story and felt it was kind of well...pointless. There is another male character whose sub-story is very engaging though and really made me think!
  3. Tenth Circle- This was a slow burn for me, took me ages to really get in to it. Rather a dark book about the after effects of rape, but if you can stick with it and give it a shot it's so good! The book revolves around finding out whether or not the victim is lying about who did it, but there are loads of twists, turns and surprises! really had me gripped. Another nice addiction is a comic strip after each chapter which links in to the main plot as the father of the girl is a comic artist for Marvel!
