12 Lies everyone tells you about university

  1. You’re flatmates will be instantly become your life long friends

You’ll probably end up strongly detesting the majority of them by second year.

  1. You go out every single night and return with wild and ridiculous stories

  1. Everyone experiments with drugs

I don’t think weed really counts anymore hun.

  1. That you’ll attend every single lecture and make the most of your massive loan

Big-Bird-Past-My-Bedtime-Weekend-Update

Paying £9k to nap everyday could be seen as a waste of money by some…

  1. That you’ll practically live in the library

200_s

lol where’s the library?!

  1. That halls is really, really fun.

Halls is really, really shit.

  1. That you’ll graduate with a 2:1 and 50 sexual partners

  1. That your long distance relationship will definitely work out

Not gonna happen.

  1. Students eat beans on toast and super-noodles 24/7

If this was true we’d have a generation of very malnourished 20 year olds.

  1. You’ll have loads of opportunities to visit your friends at other unis

Think again…

  1. Your uni is inadequate because it’s not in the guardian top 10

  1. You won’t miss home that much

The British Tag

Hello people who read my blog, I’m Faith and i’m bored so I’m going to do the British tag as I am in fact British. I was born up north in Blackburn, then have lived in Lincolnshire for about 19 years and am now down south for uni so I like to think of myself as multi-regional which you may see reflected in my stupid answers below…

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day and how many sugars?

Am I the only Brit who doesn’t like tea? I’m a coffee/hot chocolate kinda gal

2. Favourite part of your roast?

YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS

 3. Favourite dunking biscuit?

Bourbons, bourbons – bury me in bourbons.

4. Favourite quintessentially British past time?

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm, tutting at queue pushers?

 5. Favourite word?

‘Eggnog’ is the first thing that pops into my head and I can’t think of a more sophisticated answer…

 6. Cockney rhyming slang?

My flat mate literally just taught me a load yesterday, ‘put a smile on yer boatrace love’ (boatrace= face)

 7. Favourite sweet?

Stupidly long jelly snakes rock my world

 8. What would your pub be called?

I’d like it to be Harry Potter themed and called “The Chamber of Swagness”, As long as I wouldn’t get sued by JK Rowling

9. No.1 British person?

There’s so many people I could put here but off the top of my head Jimmy Carr

10. Favourite shop/restaurant? 

Zara and well it’s not strictly speaking a restaurant but Spoons (wetherspoons, specifically The Ivy Wall in Spalding)

 11. What British song pops into your head?

SOME WANT TO KISS, SOME WANT TO KICK YOU – THERE’S NOT A NET YOU COULDN’T SLIP THROUGH…

12. Marmite

LOVE

As you can see I have now flown the nest from halls and am living in a shared house ( with 9 people – I know crazy right?!). I got the loft room – it’s rather quaint and makes my feel a bit like Harry Potter whilst he’s still living with the Dursleys but in a good way. Anyway thought I share it with you now that I’ve finally unpacked …after 2 weeks.

Looks, Out and About

“Surprise bitch, bet you’d thought you’d seen the last of me”.

HELLO MY LITTLE BLOGGING CHERUBS, I HAVE RETURNED AFTER A REALLY LONG TIME

Sorry for the lapse of posts over the last few months – but fear not, I have many excuses in the form of essays, deadlines, laziness and drunken nights out (but we won’t discuss those). Oh and also I’m now the social media manager for a new up and coming luxury menswear designer Helen Anthony, so I’ve been rather busy with that (I would appreciate it if y’all had a gander/follow and made me look good merci merci)…

I have also been dabbling in the not so wonderful world of modeling, I’ll explain about that more later but I’ll just give you a little taster below

New Year…Not so new me

Image2

 

Above is my friend Steph and I before we ventured out on the town for NYE.

Steph (left), is wearing a mesh H&M dress with shoes from Primani Primark and I’m wearing a dark green play-suit from Missguided, waist belt (that kept falling off) from New Look and shoes which I sort of accidentally bought from Just Fab, for £35.

Now to the point of this post…

I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of a new year’s resolution this year but nothing’s coming to mind. I don’t smoke, I’m not over weight and I don’t shoot heroin into my eye balls so all of the obvious options are fairly futile to me. Then I thought why should I change something about myself just because it’s time to buy a new calendar again? The only thing I could maybe promise for 2014 is to keep my room tidy but I don’t make promises if I have no intention to keep them sooooooo – that’s not gonna happen!

Instead I think I’ll make some goals for myself…

Some more ambitious than others but I’ll take a punt at it at least!

Rita Ora named new face of Rimmel

Image

Rimmel, an iconic high street make up brand with a legacy dating back to 1834. Previously the likes of Sophie Ellis Bextor, Georgia Jagger, Lily Cole, Zooey Deschanel and the legendary Kate Moss have been used to front Rimmel’s ad campaigns. What do all these women have in common? They’re all classy, chic and sophisticated, so the mind boggles as to why Rita Ora, a gobby Rihanna wannabe with a fairly middle of the road range of chart hits – none of which are particularly inspiring, would be given such an honour.

Ora is an attractive girl with a fairly unique look but when it comes to make up all she’s really known for is a bit of red lippy and her bleach blonde hair – hardly anything worthy of a brand with Rimmel’s status. Constantly being the subject of the tabloids and maybe better known to some for her friendship with it girl Cara Delevingne, Ora most certainly is not known for her style after being photographed at several events in very questionable outfits, my advice to Rita would be to either sack the stylist or bloody get one!

Photographed above at a Chanel show of all places, Rita thought it’d be a spiffing idea to pay homage to her feathered Image

…friends also known as ‘birds’. I can only imagine the look on Karl’s face when Rita rocked up looking like a budgie who’d manage to escape the aviary! I personally think that Rita will lower Rimmel’s credibility and respect in the industry, unless they’re suddenly buying into the whole beanie hat hipster style which to me is just cringe worthy. Beanies are something which should have just stayed in the 90s where they belong and that’s a fact.

Maybe I’m wrong, Rita might pull in a whole new demographic to buy Rimmel products or maybe we’ll just see chavs adopting the red lipstick trend and ruining it for the rest of us – only time will tell.
