1. UV bubbles on a night out. 2. Cherry blossoms on the Meadows. 3. My goldfish, Bryan.

I thought I would start a new feature on the blog - a monthly round up of what I've been up to, with lots of pictures! (As always, click any picture to view it bigger). So here's what's been going on in April...

What I've Been Doing:
Not an awful lot, really! Started up the blog again, which I'm loving. I really missed posting stuff and being part of the blogging ~community~. I felt I was a bit behind the times so I finally joined twitter (I'm @elevatormusik if you would like to follow me) to keep up with everyone.
Apart from that I have mostly been studying, or at least pretending to! I've had two exams so far and there's three more to go. The last one is on May 17th, I can't wait to be done!

1. Fairy lights round my bed. 2. Lots and lots of revision. 3. Blue skies.

Where I've Been Going:
Sadly, because of revision, I haven't had the time for any adventures so I've pretty much just been going between my flat and the library and back again! I have managed to have a couple of nights out with my friends and a few trips to the student union bar at Teviot. I've also gone for some munch at Illegal Jack's, their burritos are amazing!
Earlier in the month it was my friends' 21st birthday so I got the train through for their party. They are triplets so there were sooo many people at the party, it was great. I did lots of dancing and got tucked into the delicious buffet before going back to their house for a massive sleepover, it was braw! ♥

1. New CDs from Fopp. 2. The Library Bar in Teviot. 3. Sunglasses weather!

What I've Been Buying:
Got a couple of dresses delivered from the ASOS sale the other day, one which I love (but is mega see-through, will need to invest in an old lady slip from M&S!) and the other which I'm not sure about yet. I'm sure one or both will be featured in an oufit post soon!
I also went shopping to Fopp to buy actual CDs. Remember those disc things? Before iTunes was invented? Yes! It's been years since I just had a browse of the CD racks and I was loving it, felt like I was 15 again when buying music was much more important than clothes! I've been listening to a lot of Mogwai recently, it's great for studying because most of the songs don't have words so I can't get distracted and sing along haha. This is one of my favourite songs just now.

1. Dancefloor in Cav. 2. Bryan again. He's named after Bryan Adams! 3. PomWonderful juice.

What I've Been Loving:
The weather! It's so nice to be able to go outside without a jacket. Although, I am a true Scottish girl and the second it gets over 25 degrees I think I'm going to die and have to go sit in the shade for fear of burning to a crisp. I'm loving the weather at the moment though, it's the perfect balance of nice and sunny without being too hot.
I'm also liking the fact Desperate Housewives is back on the TV, it's one of my favourites and I'm going to be so sad when it finishes. Can't believe I've been watching it for 7 years!

What have you been up to this month?

  1. My life has also pretty much been library, work and back home again with the odd bit of shopping in between. Not overly exciting. I've been invited out tonight but cannot actually be bothered haha - what's happening to me? x

  2. oooo looks so lovely and fun! i love burritos mmmm

    blogging is really hard to put time into but I find it rewarding :)

  3. April has been a pretty boring month for me as well, the only major thing that happened was starting my Internship!

  4. I love the photos with the bubbles and your fairy lights!

  5. your blog is lovely so i'm glad you're enjoying posting again! :) xo

  6. I love Bryan, he is so handsome hehe.

    I used to keep fish in my old office, and I loved them all! Made me so happy every Monday cos I could see them after 2 days away on the weekend. :)

  10. Enjoying the weather as well. Great to get lost of those scarves, gloves and other winter accessories

  11. Fellow Edinburgh student, cant beat Teviots nachos! Yom!! Shame about all the revision darling but at least its almost over. Good luck in all your exams x

  12. Good luck with the revision. I'm never sure if it's better to be revising when the weather's nice or when it's horrible, but at least you get to enjoy it in your breaks I guess!

  13. Nice month eh? I've done lots of sightseeing in April!

  14. this is a really nice round up. I bought a few things from ASOS too but that's nothing special since I'm addicted to that website!!! Hope all the revision and exams go well, i've been there and it feels horrid at the time but all the hard work will pay off in the end
