University update

As you may or may not know i am currently at Uni and I'm studying Biomedicine ! its harder than i thought :(. In this post I'm just going to be giving you an update on Uni and some tips for those who are planning to go Uni or those who are already there. I'm living on campus which means that i have an easy access  to the University. I share   my flat with 8 other students, when i first moved in i found it very daunting and i was scared ! its hard to move in with people that you don't even know ! but here's my advice. Always be sociable even if you are scared of meeting new people try and make the effort to be friends with everyone and anyone, remembering that they could be your future best friends, soul mates or even your husbands or wives ! ;o. Make sure you bring food, that is very key because trust me you will be very hungry, studying makes you hungry lol. Another tip is to manage your money well, although you may be excited about getting your loan remember you have to pay it back ! so don't use your loan to pay for your topshop goodies -_-. Set out payments for things like rent, books, stationary the list goes on but make sure you purchase the important things first. There are soo much tips for Uni but this is just a taster for you, the last tip is to make sure that you revise everything that you have learnt in the lecture, take down notes and pay attention :). Also go over any notes a few days after you have written them, repetition is the key to learning. I've gone on a bit here but i just wanted to give you an insight on theeee uni life.

shopping for Autumn with Jade

Now that i've started school i haven't had the time to shopping for Autumn but i finally got something. it's not much but its a start. ;))

Both H&M
top 12.99
skirt 6.99

I love the colour of the top and I actually don't own any skirts that are autumn appropriate and this one will go with most of my tops (instead of wearing jeans all the time. Not that it's a bad thing but i just wanted to change my outfits a bit from time to time:) )

I'm really liking the emerald/ maroon/ royal blue autumn colours and adding a pop of colour to my wardrobe, (instead of black/ white and greys.)

Another Portobello post...

Now Jade very kindly gave you an insight of Porto market, i would now like to tell you what i think of this market ( don't worry pictures will be included ). Many people had said great things about this market and had purchased very nice things from there. So me and Jade decided to check it out. This was our first time going there and when i saw it i was amazed, it was colourful and very cultural. However i was not impressed with the shops -_- *insert posh voice here. Most of the vintage shops were closed during the day time and the ones that were open were very expensive it was crazy ! Me and Jade gave the place a chance and looked around a bit to see if we could find anything. To be honest there wasn't much there and we ended up walking to Notting hill ! Also i was nearly robbed by a charity collector person, who insisted that they look at my camera photos *how dare they :o talk about invading privacy. Overall it is a nice place to go to for a day out, but i prefer Camden market if you wanna actually purchase something. Please remember that this is MY opinion of what i think of the place and not facts x.

d.i.y denim shorts

Its been a while since I've done a post, but i have been really busy trying to get my self together for UNI -___- ( stressful). But i will be posting more as time goes on. Today you are in for a treat *jk lol. I purchased some vintage jeans from a thrift store ( charity shop if you wanna get technical) they was only £3.75 ! bargain, i really wanted to make some vintage-y looking shorts so i decided to use these jeans, its not really difficult but i thought i would show you how you can cut/make your own. Also if you wanna dye/cut/stud/thread your shorts please feel free to do so. :D 

You will need. Jeans, scisorrs and thats all folks x. 

Start with the jeans of your desire ;p

Lay the jeans down flat and fold them over, start cutting at the desired length. ( remembering that you can roll them up).

After you have cut the jeans they may look a lil strange, but once you've rolled them up they look perfectly normal lol as shown in the image above. The finished result.
This is how i have styled the jeans but once again this is totally optional. I must admit they was a bit tight around the thighs, so i had to cut the jeans at the sides at the bottom, then i rolled them up and they fitted comfortably.
A very funky shot of my shorts lol. This d.i.y only took me a few mins to do and it came out better than i had thought. You can also save money buy cutting/studding/threading your own clothes. Hopefully i will make a habit of pimping my clothes and i will let you know how i get on :0.

love Jazzy jasmine x.
