I'm still alive!! (Valencia: Day 1)

Hey guys, I haven't been posting these past two weeks because of last minute uni stuff, and then I went to Valencia for a few days :P I hope you've all been keeping well!!

I guess I'll just give you all a quick update :)

My last week at uni consisted of a horrible viva, packing up my room into cardboard boxes, and plenty of sleepless nights before results day! I came home after getting my results, and packed that night for Valencia.


My flight was at 7.30am on Sunday morning so I had to get to the airport for about 5am >< I went over to Christine's on Saturday night so I could catch a lift with her to the airport :P


We got to Valencia airport on Sunday at about 11am, caught the Metro and reached the hotel around lunch time.




The hotel was beyond my expectations - it was so central, so clean, and so pretty :D


We had a mini balcony :P And this was the view from it!



Main square..


We wandered around the Old Quarter on our first day :P









I'll update more about my Valencia trip soon, but now I'm off to unpack all my university boxes!!

Hope everyone in London gets to go out and enjoy the sunshine this beautiful weekend!!

NOTW: Gunmetal & Crackle

Sorry for being so rubbish with blogging! I've started packing away everything in my room, and the fact I have trouble sleeping at night means when I wake up I feel rubbish and don't feeling like blogging :/ I managed to get out to town today though! Got myself some No 17 Silver Crackle :P I first saw it on Vicky's blog when she did a look with a Rimmel Sky Blue colour and wanted to try it out :)


I used E.L.F.'s Metal Madness under the crackle polish. The silver is no where near as nice as the O.P.I. because it's so matte and non-glittery in comparison. I don't own the O.P.I. one by the way, so I'm just going from swatches I've seen on the blogosphere :)

I'll try and start updating more often! I still need to finish off my China series ><

Hope everyone's keeping well!

Daily Life: End Of An Era, Cheesecake Factory & Keeping In Touch

Exams have finally finished for everyone here at SB, and with Tara's birthday coming up soon, we all went out yesterday for a kind of end of exams/birthday/farewell meal. It's kind of strange because the majority of our group still have a year to go. There are very few of us who are finishing this year. 

We went to Zizzi's. Even though there were 7 of us, the bill only came to £40.30 :P we'd managed to get hold of a voucher online - buy one meal, get one for £1! I think if you just google it you'll be able to find it.

Get ready for some picture spam.....


I couldn't decide which was less nasty so I stuck both in hahaha. These were the only photos that we took together that night, so I had to include them even though we both aren't looking our best.

Randomly took a photo of this because I thought it was interesting and because I love quotes:


And now for the FOOD!

Me and my calzone

I'd never been to Zizzi's before, AND I'd never ever had a calzone before. I had no idea what it was, and when I asked my friends, they described it as 'a giant pasty' XD They were pretty right!

Everyone went for drinks that night (and I think they ended up in Oceana), but Carey and I left in order to get back to SB earlier - I had work to do and she was tired from her early start. We'd also decided to go out to the Cheesecake Factory today to catch up.

........

In order for Carey to make it back in time for her lab prep today, we had to catch the 12.30pm back to uni.. so that meant catching the 10am out to town.. I was SO tired even though I'd come back early the night before >< Probably because I'd guiltily caught up with the latest eps of 'Ghetto Justice' and 'My Sister of Eternal Flower' (current TVB dramas) before I went to bed.

Anyways, so we went to the Cheesecake Factory.. practically for breakfast XD

Cake galore!!


Some 'action shots' Carey took of me XD


You can basically tell that I JUST got out of bed, right? XD I didn't even have time to pick out nice clothes to wear. I just made do with what I wore yesterday ^^"

'Double Decka Choco Mousse'
'Strawberry Shortcake'
Oh, the sleepiness in my eyes -_-zZz

We got talking about how fast the three years had flown by, and how fast the next year would go by. I seriously think that this has been one of the fastest years ever. I still remember taking my January exams like they were last month. On the bus back from town the night before, we'd reminisced about first year and all the nights out we'd had, all the flat-mate-get-togethers, the places that we said we'd go to but never went to, and Freshers' Week. I think for us, the memories of Freshers' Week were more about new experiences and friendships rather than the clubbing nights so standard of everyone's first week at uni.

I guess it was inevitable that we'd end up talking about the future today. Don't you think it's so strange how you can get so close to someone and drift apart so easily? To be honest, Carey and I were pretty close in first year but drifted quite a bit in second year. I really do think it's only through the effort of a close friend and our own efforts that we've been able to get our friendship back on track and back to what it was before. We spoke about how we'll meet up again in years to come, and I said how we'd meet up for dinner and there'd be mini Careys running around every where hahaha it kind of made me feel old. But in a good way.

A lot of stuff has happened in the past three years, but at the end of the day, I do want to keep this friendship, and I strive to keep as strong of a hold on it as I can. After all, she has been there for me during my darkest times, and reflecting has brought back so many good memories together. You know how people say that university friends are for life? For once in my life, I totally agree.

Do you still keep in touch with your old school friends?
