I've been so busy this past week. Firstly, one of my closest friends from home came to visit for a few days. It was so good to see her, being at uni has definitely made me miss my old maties, no offence to the new ones like, there all pretty top too. We went out a few times, starting with the Little Comets gig at The Cockpit, which I loved, its a mint venue, so cool. Then we went on to some legendary yet chavvy place called BED. Yep, that's right, bed. Great name. Totally didn't fit in with our gig attire but never mind eh. We just chilled in our hungover-ness the next day, went out on the night again, then mooched about Leeds on the Wednesday before she had to leave. I had a really lovely few days, despite the hangovers.

As well as that, I've had netball 3 times this week. At the start of uni I went to trials for the uni team and luckily got picked for the match squad. I'm loving playing again, I missed it when I stopped, and its always good to keep fit when your out drinking quiteeee alot and not eating so good. So anyway, we train twice a week and have a match too. We lost our first 17-8 but won our second 28-12, hopefully we can keep that up.

I'm insanely busy with uni work at the moment. The first few weeks seemed really laid back but now the works definitely piled up and I have lots to catch up on over reading week, which is this week coming. I'm hoping to go home at some point this week for a few days seen as everybody in my accommodation has. Should be nice to see the fam, hopefully not too boring, it'll save me some money though at least.

Here's what I wore just to go into town for a little shop today (PS. ignore the netball trainers haha)

One of the first tasks we were given for our course was a live brief from a company called Hebe media. They are a Leeds based creative consultancy who are organising Leeds' first ever digital fashion week. We were asked to go out and take street style photos that represented Leeds style.

I thought it was pretty hard at first, I'm quite shy so going up to people was the main challenge, luckily there were lots of 'fashionable' people milling about so I eventually got the task done after my initial wimping out.

 I loved this look, it was so well put together; very classic and minimal. 

 The above look is the one I chose to send to the company, as we could only choose one. Her outfit was a really good mix of shops, with some of the items being vintage, some from boutiques or market stalls with a few high street things thrown in. The look is quirky and effortless and well accessorised.

This week has been insanely busy, I've barely had chance to sit down never mind blog so after finally getting sorted with uni work and the like I'm sitting down to blog.

On Monday we were given our first brief and then two more as the week went on so work is already starting to mount up, hopefully I'll keep on top of it. One of them involved taking street style photos around Leeds to possibly be posted on a Leeds based communication website. We have to have ten by Wednesday which isn't hard in Leeds, I'm in love with the style of most people here! It's just hard plucking up the courage to ask strangers for their photo, you can tell their thinking 'weirdooooooo'.

The rest of the week consisted of netball training, in which I found out I made the squad after trials, yeyyyy! Then lotsss of student shopping events and therefore overspending...whoops, a few drinks mini session at Mojo, the besttttt cocktail bar ever! and a night out at chavvy favourite Oceana, which was pretty insane. So yes, a pretty busy week.

This is what I wore for our night out in town. I looked pretty under-dressed in my boots and skirt combo compared to the rest of the room but never mind, I hate wearing heels these days. Sorry about the blurriness of this photo, I have no idea why it is but this was actually the least blurry!

Top - Blue Rinse Vintage
Skirt - Topshop
