UAL Degree Show

Another few days in London, this time blessed with gorgeous sunshine and this time to celebrate the finalization of Agnese's time in University. I can't believe how quickly three years has flown by! 
Wednesday I arrived around midday and met her back in the apartment. We then caught up got ready and made our way to London College of Communications where her final show was going to be. At 6pm it began and quickly filled to the brim with people. It was such a good night, and such an amazing show!! I didn't get a chance to see everything, but spent a lot of time next to Aggie's piece. If you're interested I'll link her website >>here<< and it has a good description of what her piece was on under 'Nostalgia for a Future'. I absolutely loved it (and yes I know I would say that) but I'm always amazed by just how good her work is. The detail put into her piece, how everything from sound to the visuals was coordinated was so amazing. I was so impressed!! 
At 9pm everyone was made to leave so most of the students moved on to a pub to fit in some more socialising. Around 12pm we got kicked out of there onto the street haha and then we went back to some friend's of Aggie's house until everyone was ready for bed.
The next day was another stunning day. Slightly hungover we waddled our way to a cafe for an incredible veggie breakfast (to share) and some pick-me-up drinks. By midday we felt completely revitalized and met Aggie's family - who also came to the show. We drove to Victoria Park and then spent a lovely afternoon soaking up the sun and nibbling strawberries.
It was such a good few days, but as ever always too short. Soon I was on my coach back home to good old Cardiff.

I'll write again soon

Kind of feels strange writing a blog post promoting a product, but I just really wanted to let people know about something that I was completely unaware existed until about a month ago. So sorry for the cheese but...

Welcome to the New Period! 

I can't believe that I've only just discovered such a life-changing product... It's been a week of use and the ease of it has completely transformed how I feel about 'that time of the month'. 
For those who have no idea what I'm on about, I'm talking about a Menstrual Cup! Oh how the times of endlessly purchasing tampons and pads galore are gone. This clever little product cleans the slate of all that consumerism and puts the control in YOUR hands. 

I first noticed menstrual cups from an AD on Facebook believe it or not (you may have noticed the same AD yourself). Well I was curious so began reading through the comments only to discover that for once it sounded incredibly positive! A click through to the website and I was instantly convinced to buy one. A menstrual cup lasts years, is completely hygienic, is chemical free, causes no irritation and lasts way way longer than a tampon in terms of each day (up to 12hours depending on your flow!) You can even wear it swimming - finally periods will not hold us back from that beach holiday! What's not to love!?

So now it's my turn to tell you ladies to go order the product for yourselves, I guarantee you won't regret it! The website is amazing and totally answers any questions you may have. It's around £20 for one cup and I really do think it's worth the investment. 
Also with the discount code "befree" you can get free worldwide shipping :)

If you do have any questions you can send me either an email or comment down below.

Lots of Love

Rosary Vine

So I've been meaning to do a post with all my plants for quite a while now. 
I've tried to make it an annual thing where I show the growth of my pretty plants (in size and collection) around this time of year. 
But I am yet to do it this year. 
Partly due to the fact that I just have so many now... I think around 46+ So yeaaaah taking photos - especially getting the right photo of them each takes some time. 
I have taken some pictures, but I was taking some pictures today of my Rosary Vine and I realised, why don't I just do a post per plant. 
I know it sounds quite a ridiculous idea because that would mean nearly 46 posts of just plants. 
I don't think I want to do that. 
But I kind of enjoying focusing on one plant with my camera and just trying to capture the essence of it. 

So for now here's just one of my many plants.
My Rosary Vine, bought this year at the RHS Flower Show in Cardiff, it's growing very quickly and I will have to move it to a higher shelf eventually (which is awesome).
I'll make the effort to post again soon.

Stop Time

How to stop procrastinating that is the question. How to make meaning from my time. I've only just realised its stopped raining. How long haven't I looked out of my window. How long into my laptop screen. I've written already today, I don't feel so much like writing now. 
I had work this morning, again. But I didn't mind. It means I have the whole of the rest of my day to do what I please. In this case it's lay on my sofa with a throw over me and my camera by my side. I'm trying to take pictures. I have a few. But my cable is far away and I haven't summed up the effort to go get it yet. I will. 
I went to the gym after work which went really well. Two classes and 10 minutes on some machine that works my legs. Cycling in the rain was nice, but I got wet and it's lead me to this point now. I did finish off my essay however, which is always a good thing. Its due tomorrow. I got an A- for my last module which is really satisfying. I want to try and get even better next time. I haven't watered my plants today... I bet they hate it when I don't stick to a routine. 
This evening I feel like eating sweet potato and lighting all my candles until I'm too tired to stay awake. Tom will be home soon, which is good. It's so nice not having evenings in work. 
I've taken a few pictures today. Don't know what I've been so stubborn to use the Aperture and Shutter Speed settings on the camera until today. They're so simple to play around with. 

I'll do another post soon
