In love with Ineffabless!

In love with Ineffabless!

Hi everybody!

Today’s blog is a little different, it’s about a piece of jewelry I absolutely LOVE.

I am 20, going on 21, so I have a year full of friends BIG birthdays coming up and finding a present that can stay with people for a long time is really important to me. This is where Ineffabless comes in!

A few weeks ago Ineffabless approached me to try out their jewelry. I’ve never had this before and so was – as you can imagine- super excited! I went onto their webpage and was overwhelmed with the choice they have. You can choose from rings, necklaces, bracelets, bangles and can even personalise them. How perfect is that for a present for a loved one?

Oh and the price is ridiculously affordable. It’s quality jewelry- for less.

I used to work in Ernest Jones and while it was quiet (which was a lot of the time!) I would pick out which pieces of jewelry I would choose for myself. But one of the things I noticed were that the styles were quite mature. Ineffabless offers really up to date, statement pieces of jewelry. The sort of statement pieces that define an outfit.

I chose these earrings:

I have seen this style earring in Accessories and Pandora, but not for the same price or quality. I had the hardest time choosing!

If you have a special birthday coming up- create your own ‘wish list’. It’s easy and then you can choose what you get!

If it’s your Mums/ Sisters/ Aunts/ friends birthday- definitely look here before any other jewelers. Or even if you fancy a pick me up- just do it!

Add a little sparkle to your life!

First Two Weeks of University

First Two Weeks of University

Hello everybody!

The last weeks has been such a bundle of emotions. I’ve been moving into the flat with the girls, celebrating 21st birthdays, getting back into the gym, pre-reading non-stop- aaaand eating a lot of chips from a lovely little kebab shop called ‘Viallis’ (that I totally recommend to anyone wanting to pile on the calories!).

I thought I would share with you a few photos and give a little life update as we go!

I moved in two days before University started, so that I could be super prepared for third year! This year I am lucky enough to be living just round the corner from my boyfriend which meant that we (Hannah and I) went round his house for a big catch up and a few drinks.

(Little heads-up: I live with two Hannah’s! Do I have a way of differentiating? Nope- we’re just winging it! At least I know if I call out, someone will come!)

On our way out, we took some photos up against the lovely brick wall of our block of flats.

IMG_6811[1]

Just want to point out- I probably won’t be taking more photos out in the hall, because some moron has dragged bin juice down the stairs. The entire hallways stinks and lordy does it make me mad. It’s a bit of a standing joke with my friends that I have a hyper-sensitive nose- so the smell is mega offensive. 
I thought to myself, we’re all trying to be friends, so I wrote a little (very polite!) note and stuck it in the hallway. I’m yet to have a response. But after following the Bin-Juice trail #callmesherlock, I know who’s done it. Safe to say I won’t take any parcels in for them. Ultimate sass. 

The following day we did a little bit of shopping, bought a gym membership and waited for other Hannah to move in. It was super rainy so we decorated our little flat! Living with two girls is awesome.

IMG_7050[1]IMG_7047[1]

On the Monday (aka first day of Uni!) it was Hannah’s 21st Birthday and we all went out to Kasbah. Kasbah is in Coventry, and we live in Leamington Spa, so we bought UniExpress tickets. It was super fun, getting all glammed up with the girls. I shall insert some pictures here.

We got some really cute face paints at Kasbah and some lufferly chips from a kebab shop (hence the need for the gym membership!)

We then had a standard first week of University. The usual- ‘this year is the most important year of your life’ lecture that I am pretty certain I have had nearly every year since the age of 13. Though, this time I believe them! So I booked myself a careers appointment for next week. One thing that does surprise me is how few career’s appointments there are on campus- Warwick University offers less than 10 slots a day for 24,000 students! Plus you can only book them 1 week in advance. I was sat on my laptop at 8am fighting for an appointment. Pretty frustrating.

So note to future or current Freshers- see a careers officer early on- get an idea of where to look and who to go to!

Here is a little picture I uploaded to my instagram (@abeesworldblog) of the beautiful autumnal leaves on the floor. LOVE IT.

IMG_E6905[1].JPG

Sort of sad story: I loved these shoes, I wore them almost every day on the cruise excursions and summer. A week before University I thought- they dont look as white as they used to, so I washed them. Rooky mistake- don’t do it! I melted the plastic and the soles fell off -.- so I used my sisters hot glue gun to glue them back together. I walked away feeling like a boss. Well, 2 days ago I was walking along and my big toe fell out of the side. Hot glue guns are overrated guys. RIP favourite, well travelled white shoes.

I posted a little bit about feeling homesick during my first week on my Instagram. If you’re someone feeling homesick, please do check it out. Whether you’re at University or started a new job away from home- it’s totally normal. So being brutally honest, I did feel a little bit homesick during my first week. Even as a third year! But one of my favourite things is getting little life updates from my family. So, incase you’re new to my blog (hello!), over the Summer we got a little/ actually rather huge golden-doodle puppy called Amber! And the little updates from my family are so funny! Top-tip for feeling homesick- get whatsapp, skype and keep in touch.

Here is a little picture of Amber and Jim from today:

IMG_7045[1]

The little brown dot, yup, that’s Jim- our ten year old border terrier. Amber loves him so frickin much- it’s adorable. When I first saw this today, I thought the brown dot was part of the dog bed!

After my little homesick spell and at the end of our first week, we all went out again. Which was also great! I am usually not one to go out clubbing. I have always been more of a coffee shop girl (and still am!) but we had such a lovely time and took some more pictures!

IMG_6937[1]

Other than that, I’ve been doing the shed loads of pre-reading for my course, going to the gym with the girls, taking photos of pretty Leamington houses, eating delicious lacto-free pizza, drinking Soya Hot-Chocolates and getting more and more excited about the Autumness!

I hope you enjoyed reading my little life update- I hope to be a lot more present on this blog again now that I’m all settled in University!

Have a wonderful week everyone,

I shall end this blog with an adorable picture of my gorgeous puppy 🙂

Girl Struggles

Girl Struggles

There are so many reasons that being a girl rules. For example, we never catch anything when pulling our flies up! Plus, on a more catastrophic note, the world literally wouldn’t exist without women #girlpower.

But in today’s blog I’m going to talk about the realities of being a girl. The #girlstruggles. Here are the things us girls have to put up with:

  1. Dry Shampoo- either a life saver or adds 30 years onto your age, most of the time I find myself weighing up whether to look like Mrs Claus in August or Filch, from Harry Potter.
  2. Having “Man Dolphin” legs- a term I use to describe my legs when I haven’t shaved for a while (when I have they are as smooooth as a dolphin- for like a day!). I feel like “Man Dolphin” is a winter comfort!
  3. Having one “Man Dolphin” leg… how I forget one entire limb I don’t know.
  4. Shaving your armpits- I’m sure there is a perfectly good scientific reason for having hair under your arms, but sometimes it seems like it was part of God’s punishment to Eve. Like why is it there? Why does it grow so fast? Why do I always manage to miss some?
  5. Owning ultra-comfy/mega-old bra- that one you hang onto even though it’s slightly grey, ripping at the seams and the underwire will shortly try and burst a lung. But you can’t find it anywhere else soooo…
  6. On a similar note, the “holy pants”- (I really friggin hope others have this too!) a pair of pants that are your favourite. Super comfy, probably from M&S, that have been worn within an inch of their lives. And are ultimately holey, aka “holy”. Amen.
  7. Strapless bras- a seemingly good idea, until two hours into wearing it, it’s hugging your belly button.
  8. Trying to gracefully get out of a sports bra- an impossible task.
  9. Sanitary Products- needs little explaining. They’re expensive and annoying.
  10. Getting a ladder in your tights- the MOST frustrating thing!
  11. Thongs- weighing up whether the lack of VPL (Visible Pant Line) is worth the hours worth of wedgey.
  12. Jean sizing- every shop is different. I don’t ask for much, I just want something that sucks everything in, holds it in place, makes me have a Kim Kardashian bum and look two sizes smaller, please, thank you, ta.
  13. Bobby pins getting into every nook and cranny- hoovers, washing machines, handbags, pockets…
  14. Smudging freshly painted nails- super frustrating.
  15. Losing earrings back- who hasn’t been on all fours scanning the carpet looking for one of those sodding things?
  16. Streaky fake tan- the patchy, albino cow look is never a good one.
  17. Major break outs- usually the day before you need to look good. I find it’s before school photos, parties or dates.
  18. Hair getting everywhere -.-
  19. The aftermath of heels- blisters and sore soles of feet are enough to make any gal mad.
  20. Losing your underwear in the laundry- besides the usual loss of knickers at home, genuinely through the washing machine, I had one super creepy encounter at University. If you didn’t get there in time to take your washing out of the dryer yourself- people sometimes nicked it! Tell me, who actually wants someone elses knickers?!
  21. Asking for a trim at the hairdressers- and coming out with a friggin bob.
  22. Legs rubbing- the bane of my life on holiday. It’s the worst feeling.
  23. Applying eyeliner- one wing is always higher than the other and I literally cannot talk while I apply it.
  24. Wearing a skirt on a windy day- how did Marilyn Monroe make it look cute?!
  25. Queueing for the girls loo in any club or even event *raises gun to head*
  26. Trying for a smokey eye look- experimenting with a new eyeshadow but ending up sporting the “black eye” look.
  27. Jumpsuits or bodysuits in the toilet- like a friggin puzzle. Not only do you need a wee, you’re worried everyone in the queue thinks you’re taking ages to pee and, as the random spurt of claustrophobia kicks in, you end up hitting your desperately flailing arms on the cubical walls. It’s a mess really.
  28. Windy days + lipstick.
  29. The word “smart-casual”- what does that mean?! For guys its shirts, jeans and a decent pair of shoes… but girls?!
  30. Sneezing when you just put your mascara on.

So there you go, 30 #girlstruggles! Hope you enjoyed reading,

Bee
