Braids & Feeling Lost!

Now that I've finished University until September, I'm feeling really lost as to what to do with my time! Does anyone else ever get that? I just feel guilty, like I'm procrastinating or something! I'd love it if you guys could recommend anything (literally anything: books, films, blogs, places to go, things to do etc) as it appears I have a lot of unfilled time on my hands!

I always think my face looks incredibly different on camera to real-life. That might be because I have absolutely no idea how to pose, but there you go. I just feel like you guys aren't able to see what I really look like haha!

This morning I found these adorable cacti in my room. I'd told my mum I wanted some, and she surprised me with these. I think they are so cute! I may have accidentally spent some money online due to my boredom, so there could be a haul coming if you guys want to see it! I may go for a run tonight too, as my crazy workload has meant some serious weight gain (siiiiiiiighhh).

Anyway, today, in my attempt to find things to do, I tried out this round-the-head braid. I simply plaited the front of my hair on both sides, pulled it loosely so it was a little more messy, and used bobby pins to clip it at the back! I think it'd look so cute if you picked some daisies and tucked them through the plaits, too! What do you think?

    1. I got my timetable on friday, and I'm off until october too! Soo much time off! I'm thinking I may read some of the books on my reading lists, but I've been going for a walk or a run every evening too which helps a little I guess! I'll let you know if I think of something a little more fun haha! xx
