London Weekend!

So I went to London on Friday! What a weekend! Absolutely loved every minute of it and I wish I could do it all over again. I went with one of my closest friends Mitch and we got the coach at quarter past ten on Friday morning and got into Victoria Coach Station about half past two in the afternoon. It took is ages to find our hotel but we got there in the end.  Our hotel was rubbish though, but it was the cheapest and closest hotel we could find to Wembley Stadium (I will go onto why I wanted a close hotel to Wembley Stadium in a minute). It was a shock to find that there was no bathroom in out room and that it was a shared bathroom throughout 4 rooms in the hotel LOL but we did get used to it in the end and it was something to laugh about. We got settled into the hotel for a few hours and then we went out for something to eat and one of the best restaurants I have ever been to; Garfunkles. It is expensive but it is delicious and I have already been there twice before! We had a lovely meal. I did not take any photos of the meal because I was too busy enjoying it but I knew I had to take a photograph at some point so here's our deserts. Toffee waffle pudding with ice cream and chocolate fudge cake served warm with ice cream, YUMMY!!!
After our meal, we had a walk around to get used to the area and got a bottle of Martini to take back to the hotel so we could have a drink while we lay in bed and watched inbetweeners all night which was quite fun haha.

The next morning we got up very early to get on the tube to oxford street and I was absolutely amazed by the sales in the shops. WOW! I could tell Mitch was getting so fed up with me because I was in the shops for hours picking up clothes like there was no tomorrow. I was shocked at the sales in river island, everything had been reduced so cheap, absolutely loved it! I brought a lovely bag which was £15 and a lovely grey top which was £12 pound from River Island. I brought a pair of trainers out of Topman which were leopard print and were reduced to £10. Then I went into Primark which is absolutely MASSIVE! I was in love haha I love primark and I couldn't wait to go in there, and I brought a lovely floral top and a floral kimono which were both £10 pound each. I LOVE a bargain! Me and Mitch were so in love with oxford street that we have decided to stay up London for a week in a few months so that we can shop till we drop! I can't wait to go again, I'm so excited.

Me and Mitch, wearing my kimono from Primark which I am so in love with!

On Saturday night....... Are you ready for the big one? I WENT TO SEE EMINEM!!!! It was amazing and a once in a lifetime opportunity. It was so expensive but totally worth it. I went to see him with Mitch at Wembley Stadium where Danny Brown, ASAP Rocky and OFWGKTA supported him, they were pretty rubbish if I'm honest and I don't understand why they supported Eminem when they don't really have anything to do with him but oh well, I wasn't at the concert to see them. I was so happy with his choice of songs that he chose, and I loved the fact it was most of his old songs that he sung such as 'The Real Slim Shady', 'Stan', 'Lose yourself' and many many more. It wa a night I will never ever forget and I plan to go to all of his upcoming concerts in the UK. 

However, my feet were absolutely killing me because of the waiting around. We got into the stadium about 5:00pm and the support acts did not come on till 7:00 which was annoying. The wait was so long and I'm a very impatient person. Eminem did not come on till 9 and If my tickets weren't for standing I would have came to wembley at 9 so I could miss the support acts and just see Eminem: ugh. It took us ages to get out the stadium when Eminem had finished as well because it holds 90,000 people, use your imagination. The tubes were absolutely packed but we finally managed to get back to the hotel about 12:10am after stopping off at Burger King on the way back. We fell straight to sleep after we had eaten. 

On the Sunday it was time to go home (we were really sad) so we packed our stuff and left and made our way to Victoria coach station but we did have a Starbucks and a McDonald's on the way which was probably the reason we MISSED OUR 12:00pm COACH!!!!! Absolutely gutting but thank god my cousin is a Coach Driver for National Express and she managed to sort everything out for us. However, we did have to wait 6 long hours for the next coach but it was okay. We sat in a cafe for the whole time waiting because there was a space where we could charge our phones LOL.

My work!

I have now finished my first year of college. I have met so many new people oh I love and now call my best friends who I can tell anything too and I have had so many memories such as going to Italy for two weeks with everyone and going out clubbing over there. I will never forget Italy (we all went over there for work experience with college, it was amazing). At college I study art and design where I do Graphic Design, Illustration and Photography. I love it and I have learnt so many new things, especially photoshop. I have grown to love photoshop and my knowledge is slowly getting stronger of it. I aspire to be a graphic designer so next year I hope to go to University of Leeds or University of Northampton to study graphic design. I also have a passion for illustration too so I have decided that in the future or soon, I want to be a freelance illustration and sell my work on iPhone cases, T-shirts, prints, etc... And also have a job as a graphic designer. I make so many plans for my future! It will be hard work but I will do it! 

I have grown to love something called Vector drawing which I have been learnin at college and I think I am actually getting pretty good at it. We do it using Photoshop and it's basically where we draw a cartoon like image of someone or something (everyone has seen them before) using the pen tool. I did Merlin from the Tv Show, and Kat Von D, the tattooist.

Lazy day!

Well I've had a busy day today.. NOT. I've sat in all day and watched my favourite tv show ever.. Catfish! :) and also been drawing all day and annotating in my sketchbooks for college. Quite fun really as I enjoy doing the work. Took me ages though! I haven't even bothered to get dressed today either I've just been sat in my pyjama bottoms and a hoodie all day so I've been really comfy and snuggled up :p
Now I am in bed about to read some of these. I love fashion magazines because I love all of the models in there with their crazy style... I love the style. If only I could pull it off, and that brings me on to losing weight. All my life I have hated my body and the way I look so it's now time to do something about it. I want to look good, I want to be happy, I want to look good in almost every type of clothing and I can't do that, and these magazines REALLY motivate me because of the clothes and the models and their are also lots of articles about losing weight and being thin so I think it's time. I've just thrown all my chocolate and all that rubbish food away and I'm now motivated to just drink plenty of water with healthy food and do more exercise each day such as sit ups, squats, etc.. I'm also going to be signing up for gym soon if I can find one near me. I really want the body I've always dreamed of and I KNOW I will get the body I've always dreamed of one day and then I can prove all the people wrong who have ever taken the piss out of the way I look. Wish me luck guys :D

I am not happy with college!

Well today has been a shit day. I got up, got ready, waited for the bus which was 10 minutes late just for it to break down (I was not happy) and then got moaned at for being late which I couldn't exactly help. Then had to have a lecture with my least favourite teacher ever and then we get to our next class and there's no teacher and we find out that we don't have one for our next class either. What's the point in staying if we're not being taught? Ridiculous. My college is so unorganised it's unreal. Oh well. We all went home because we didn't have anything to do in lesson because of having no teacher and I get to go home, put my pyjamas on, eat food and carry on watching Primeval!
