Finally, finally finally finally showing you were I live - kind of. My room anyway. Absolutely love my uni house, not completely in love with its placement (its down the side of another building) but its definitely really clean and very cosy. Ignore my bin in the corner, I hadn't been bothered to empty it when I took these pictures and wasn't too bothered to empty it and take it again afterwards. Laziness not a virtue, I know, don't judge me K?

So my room is number 3, which is quite apt and genuinely a coincidence (because we drew numbers out of a hat), because 3 is my favourite number! 

FYI I have much nicer bed covers but I had literally just changed them and tidied my room (particularly after Freshers' week) but when the nicer cover is on I'll show you guys what that looks like cause its super cute, and only from Tesco too! 

Also can we momentarily discuss the cuteness of my light? £2 from Ikea, now that is a bargain if I ever saw one! Took about 4 people to figure out how to put it on but now its on and it looks 'awsummmm'. 

...and now for the obligatory panoramic shot of my room just cause:

Uni life has become cray cray. That is both a good thing and a bad thing. Its good because it means I'm constantly doing something and I'm actually enjoying 2/3 of my modules, but its a bad thing because at the moment I am seriously struggling to keep up with the core reading let alone any secondary or private research reading :/ Ahh well, I suppose I'll get in the swing of it soon! Life is all about learning I guess, learning to be all adult and responsible and all the scary stuff o_O is a truly cliche but awesome song

I should really be asleep right now, but I'm hanging out with my friend (by hanging out I mean we're doing two separate things but in the same room haha), but I suppose I can always nap tomorrow. I do love my naps!

Here's some cake...forgive me!

Firstly I am sooooooooo sorry for the lack of posting over the past few weeks! I have been busy busy busy with uni and getting back into the swing of things as well as not once having had a completely tidy room to take a picture of and show you! I haven't even been instagramming that much, and that is crazy! Cause I love me some instagram!

Forgive me pleaseeeeeeeee.

Moving on swiftly! This time last week I went to Sainsbury's and bought a whole load of baking ingredients to last me for a while. Unfortunately I used all the buttercream I bought and the cocoa power was just about enough to make that chocolate cake. Needless to say, I'll make the trip down to Asda next time I need some cocoa powder or buttercream! Anyway I made that chocolate cake, and my housemates, well, lets just leave it at that shall we ;)

Prepare yourself for some major foodgasming if I may say so myself! (and yes I am aware that foodgasming is not an actual verb but for this moment and in this blog today, it is!)

Can we just YUM at all that chocolatey icing goodness. I have to say, that is possibly the best tasting icing I have ever made. Also other than a fraction of a side, the cakes themselves came out of their tins almost perfectly! I think I might enjoy baking in this house a lot more than I thought!

I will try and post more but its likely to be one post every two weeks rather than once a week as my workload starts to increase and the library becomes by best friend. That being said, I will do my very very best to post at least once a week and keep you guys updated on what's going on with me, even if it doesn't include mouth-watering pictures like these!

Also if you haven't heard John Legend's new album 'Love In The Future' yet I suggest you give it a listen! Here's one of my favourite songs from it:
