My  most recent makeup purchase is this: Rimmel London's Wake Me Up Concealer. I have heard a lot of good things about this product so thought I would try it for myself to see what all the fuss was about. Well, the fuss was justified...

That's it. My first year of university is officially complete.
Yesterday, I submitted my last assignment, and I just wanted to write a post about my fresher experience...

I have honestly had the most amazing/interesting year. I remember the first day I arrived. Lots of my flatmates had already moved in and I was one of the last to arrive. Not only was I nervous because I was one of the last to arrive, but I had been at my school since I was 11, and hadn't been in a new educational environment since then. I've had the same friends since I was 11 and had forgotten what that "new school" environment felt like, where you don't know anyone and try and make new friends. Luckily for me, everyone in my flat was lovely and I settled in very quickly, despite being extremely homesick.

I loved the first few months. Getting to know everyone, in your flat and on your course; discovering a new city; learning how to cook; and trying to manage my money... (not so good at that last one). Everything was new and exciting and I felt independent for the first time in my life.
Freshers was an absolutely crazy two weeks. I never really went out clubbing before I came to uni so that whole scene was new to me too. Going out every night for 14 days straight was exhausting, but I loved it. Advice: definitely take advantage of freshers fortnight.
