Hello folks. I have fully accepted that summer is no longer with us, and have decided to embrace autumn instead of refuse to believe it's here again already. I had a pretty amazing summer, and have actually had a great start to this academic year, so instead of rekindling last autumn's doom-and-gloom mentality I have decided to really get into the spirit of fall and enjoy it while it lasts. Autumn used to be my absolute favourite season, and I'm starting to remember why...the crisp mornings, colourful leaves, hot chocolates and cinnamon tea...what could possibly be more cosy and comforting?
My mock exams begin tomorrow (help me) and so I've spent the majority of this weekend holed up in my house, desperately trying to teach myself the difference between the intermolecular forces in a giant ionic structure and a giant covalent structure (I suck at chemistry). I did, however, go on a spontaneous outing to homebase on saturday evening to buy a frame for my art coursework...and somehow also ended up with a 99p houseplant and an orange orla kiely lookalike tray. Right.
I made a break for it today by going out on a morning walk across the heath, which was heavenly as I love being outside and it was a reason to dress up in autumnal colours and wear my new coat, which is the warmest thing and makes me feel like a bear. It's fake fur guys, don't worry I made 100% sure.

So that's my little update out of the way...I hope you all understand if I don't post as frequently this week as my exams might take up a lot of my time, but I'll try and keep this blog as up to date as possible as and when I can.
Also, I have two very exciting things coming up....my very first blogiversary (I have no idea how you spell that) is coming up on the 22nd of November, which is the anniversary of my very first post. Crazy how much can change in just one year. I'm also coming up to 400 followers (which is incredible and I love each and every one of you) and so to celebrate them both am planning a fantastic GIVEAWAY! I did one when I hit 100 followers, and so thought it might be nice to do it again.
love and hugs
