My week in pictures #189

(From top left) My new phone case arrived from GoCustomised* on Monday - I'm planning how to do a full review soon. I went bowling with the geology society and I got s strike! MacDuff on Wednesday to do fieldwork was beautiful. On Friday we had a movie night with my flatmates family - we watched Pan! Dinner at 'The Light of Bengal' on Saturday night with Scott was AMAZING. Stress of geology mapping...  Every time I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing. 
Last week went fast! Probably because I have so much going on. After getting back to Aberdeen on Monday then going to the only lecture I have my friends and I went to our first geology society social. We went bowling and had a fews drinks - it was nice to meet new people. I even got a strike while bowling which made me competitive. After a few drinks at the pub and a trip to McDonalds it was time for bed.

Tuesday was quiet with the normal 9am start then the gym after class. I also finally got time to go to the library and get a new book to read. On Wednesday I had a field trip to the beautiful MacDuff. We got to spend all day outside in the sun looking at rocks which is fine by me. When I got back to the flat I had enough time to relax before Scott came round for tea. We made fish tacos which are one of my favourite things then watched TV.

I woke up after a restless night on Thursday feeling horrendous. A cold crept up on me from nowhere and made me want to stay in bed all day. I did have to go to class for a few hours and try to do coursework but I was dying for bed by 8pm. I didn't feel much better on the friday but I had coursework to finish so I had to get out of bed. I didn't get much done before I started getting cabin fever so I went for a swim. That evening I went with my flatmate to her aunties for tea, we played air hockey with her cousin and watched Pan then Strictly Come Dancing. 

Scott and I had plans on Saturday we he came round about midday, we went to pick up something for his work then for a walk in tyrebagger woods. I was really excited because we were going out for tea at 'The Light of Bengal' which Scott has raved about for months. It was really really good aswell - I can't wait to go back already. Afterwards we went for a few drinks before getting a taxi home. 

Sadly Scott had to leave for the football on Sunday so I walked with him to Pittodrie, the coursework I had needed finished so I went to meet my friends in the library - not something I want to make a habit of on a Sunday. I got finished just in time to get back to the flat and change before my parents picked me up for dinner. After failing to get into any of the three Pizza Expresses in Aberdeen I had a delicious calzone at Ask Italian. I said goodbye to mum and dad because they were off to a concert and I needed to catch up on sleep. 

My weekend was so busy, lovely and I had a great time. I hope you all had a good weekend too.

A Super Soft and Cosy Cardigan for Autumn

Cardigan: StyleWe* | Shirt: Primark | Jeans: Levi's | Boots: JD Williams*
This is my first autumnal look of the year - oh no! Although some days are still warm more often than not you need a jumper aswell. There has been a big cardigan shaped hole in my wardrobe for years. Considering I have so many dresses that need some extra warmth it seems silly.

This grey cardi arrived from StyleWe last week and it is gorgeous. It is partially wool so it is really cosy but it's also really soft. It is lovely, slouchy and I'm sure it will go with a lot in my wardrobe - I only wish they had it in navy too.

My favourite thing about the StyleWe website is all the different designers they have. Once you find something you like you can click to see the rest of the designers items. That way you can browse things that are more your taste. One of my favourites is Toyouth because it is so fun and colourful. Their red coat would be perfect for autumn.

Have you heard of StyleWe before? What do you think of the cardigan? They also have pinterest full of inspiration and a blog too.

My week in pictures #188

(From top left) On Monday night we watched 'Before I Go To Sleep' which I loved. This week I went to sort out my gym membership and have been twice already. After a break over the summer we've finally watched the end of season 4 of 'Prision Break'. Cuddles with Bernie the puppy on Thursday. This very cosy cardi arrived in the post on Friday from WeStyle*. A casual toilet selfie while at the pub on Friday night.
Week one of third year is over already! It has been a good week too - getting to start new things but not being buried in coursework. I can see things are going to get more difficult soon though. On Monday my lecture isn't until practically the evening so I had a chilled morning before going to collect my new student ID and going to pay for my gym membership. The one thing I hate more than exercise is wasting money so hopefully that will keep me fit this year. Later on in the evening I made myself dinner and watched a movie with my flatmate and her boyfriend.

Tuesday is an early start day but after my class was over I went to the gym with a friend. It was good fun working out with someone else. Wednesday is another day with quite an early start but after my classes were finished I had time to properly unpack and tidy my room before Scott arrived. I walk into town to meet him and we went to morrisons to get food. Lots of fajitas and two episodes of Hell's Kitchen later we were ready for bed. 

It looks like my busy day this term will be Thursday. I'm in for three hours in the morning followed by another two in the afternoon. In the hour break we have I was able to go and see my friends puppy who I'm just a little bit in love with... any excuse really. I don't have classes on a Friday this year so I was able to get up early to go to the gym then have time to pack before meeting Scott later on. We drove home then decided we fancied a drink so went to the pub. Several hours later and even more drinks we stopped off for Pizza on our way home. 

Surprisingly Scott felt worse on Saturday morning than me. So while he was sleeping off his hangover I was able to catch up on some blog admin. It was a very lazy day, we went to the supermarket before Scott dropped me off at home. Mum and Dad have a friend visiting this weekend so it was nice to have a catch up and a good meal.

Sunday I really wanted to practise my driving so after a lie in and breakfast we headed out. Luckily I've not totally forgotten what I'm doing but I can't parallel park to save my life! The rest of the afternoon was spent pretty chilled at home, we took the dogs for a walk and I'm about to finish making a tart tatin. 

I've not been on Instagram at all this week but you should definitely give me a follow on bloglovin' so you don't miss any of my posts!
