Good news everyone! It is currently 2:31pm and I have JUST clicked the submit button on the very last essay that I had left. That's seven essays and 28,000 words of pure stress out of my hands now so everyone keep your fingers crossed that at least some of what I wrote made sense and I don't fail miserably...
Now that massive deadline is out of the way I should have a lot more time to devote to blogging so there won't be another massive two week gap for a while, unless of course I DO fail and then I'll probably just run off into a desert somewhere and never come back.
Recently I received a very intriguing invitation from Voucher Codes UK and last week I went along to one of my favourite events that I have ever been to, the Most Wanted Swap Shop. The basic premise was that you brought along up to five items that you don't want or wear anymore, get given a number of stamps depending on the value of your item and then swap them with other people's stuff! I took along a few bits that haven't seen the outside of my wardrobe in months and came home with a Zara clutch bag and blouse, a gorgeous ASOS dress and a lovely summery maxi-dress by a brand I hadn't heard of up until now.
As well as coming away with what basically amounted to a free shopping trip there was also a customisation table, a manicurist from Blossom & Jasmine and as many cocktails and sweeties that could be consumed. Plus the holy grail of all press events, a photobooth with jazzy accessories. I spent a good couple of hours chatting away and messing about with my friend Izzy who I dragged along with me and longtime blogging pals Hannah, Rosie, Sarah and Chloe. What a wonderful interlude to a fortnight of library stress it was!
