University Life.

So I've now been at uni in Newcastle for approx 6 weeks and I have experienced so much since being here already! The lack of recent posts is a reflection of how busy I've been! Living with 3 other girls I thought could be challenging however I am sure I have THE nicest flatmates, Beth, Ash and Crissi which has made the transition to uni much easier for me! Of course I miss home as well, especially my mum who is my best friend, but it's nice to know that she's excited for me here!

Ash, Beth, Crissi and me - Flat 57 Girliess! <3
Of course the main reason I am in Newcastle is to study! Absolutely loving my course at the moment - Fashion Communication! I was destined to work in the fashion industry since I was little as I've always had a passion for it and I'm so glad I followed my heart! I find the course fascinating, focusing on journalism, photography, branding and installation at the moment is giving me skills and confidence to pursue a career in this field. And with the possibility of a trip to New York Fashion Week in February I am literally about to burst with excitement!! The girls on my course are lovely as well which makes my lectures even more entertaining and enjoyable! A recent photoshoot with Megan and Vicki turned into cocktails at the Slug and Lettuce on the Quayside - I will definitely be doing this more often!
I think Photography is something I'll definitely pursue as I have a particular interest in styling and like to think I have a creative eye, so here are a few of my photos I have taken so far to end this post! I will keep you updated about anything exciting that happens here, as I'm sure there will be many more exciting times to come!
But for now, bye from Newcastle! xxx
