I'm Gonna Lift To Lift It Higher

This is going to be my new weekly feature which i'll post every Sunday. I've been inspired by a few other bloggers (Lily, Victoria, Aqsa, Kate and Jennie to name a few) who are doing similar kinds of posts and I always enjoy reading them so I thought i'd do my own. I've also decided to incorporate my Tumblr Ten and Monthly Playlist posts into these posts too. Each post will have my favourite Tumblr picture of the week and the song i've listened to most as well as the little highlights of my week. I hope you enjoy reading them :)


.1. My new layout has definitely grown on me; I love how clean it feels and it's inspired me to write better posts and take better photos to go with it. That's partly why i've decided to do this feature as it means I won't be spamming you with lots of Tumblr photos and music which I know some people won't be that interested in. I've also been reading through some of my older posts and there are a few reviews which i'm going to re-write as a lot of you won't have seen them and they are badly written!

.2. This week has actually been quite eventful for me. I turned 18 on Tuesday (thanks for all your tweets and comments) and went out for a meal with my family. It was really nice except for being given a children's menu when I was clearly wearing an 18 badge! I then went out with my friends on Thursday night and had an amazing time; I found out on Friday that birthday cake makes a nice hangover cure ;) 

.3. I went to a university open day last weekend and I left feeling so inspired. I wasn't completely sure what I wanted to study so I went to visit a uni which was only 30 minutes away. I wasn't expecting much but it was actually really good; it has brand new buildings and I felt like I would really fit in. I was talking to one of the tutors and she was so helpful; she told me which course she thought would be right for me and told me how much confidence moving away to uni would give me. I will probably apply there but i'd prefer to move somewhere a bit further away but as it's a really good uni I would still be more than happy to go there. It has also inspired me to work harder as I know now that I really want to go to uni and i'm more determined to get the grades. I've got a few more unis that i'd like to visit so hopefully they'll be just as good.

.4. The lovely Sarah recently interviewed me for her blog which you can read here. She has a lovely blog so i'd really recommend heading over there and reading some of her posts :)

.5. I'm currently listening to The Saturdays - Higher (title song), The Pictures - Tears (even though I didn't watch Must Be The Music) and Kings Of Leon - Radioactive.
