Sunday Summary #14


1.The Shins new album 2.Archives 3.New fake tan to try out 4.Ella Tino competition - details below!

I know I've been going on about it for months but this will be the last time, I promise - my dissertation gets handed in on Tuesday!! I'm hoping to get it finished off tonight so I can get it printed, bound and handed in tomorrow with plenty of time to spare. I'm pretty happy with it, but it's currently about 1,600 words over the word count so I will have to do some serious cutting back this evening! I have strangely enjoyed doing the research for it but I will definitely be glad to get it out of my life and relax for a little bit. My first task will be going out on Tuesday night to celebrate and then next on my list is going shopping, which I haven't done for months!

I'm afraid I haven't got much to tell you in this week's post as all I've done is split my time between the Archives, the library and my desk (and by desk, I mean bed) in an attempt to get my dissertation finished. So I thought I would share a competition with you instead of boring you with details of all the estate papers I've read through this week! An email popped into my inbox earlier about the competition Ella Tino boutique are running on their Facebook page to win a whole outfit including dress, shoes and accessories. All you need to do is like the page and share the competition image (same image as the one above). The competition is on until April 13th so get entering for a chance to win! If you don't win you can still treat yourself to something with a nice little 25% discount using the code 'elevator' at the check out. I've got my eye on this Jewelled Skull Tee, hurry up student loan!

What have you been up to this week? Tell me about your adventures in the sunshine, I need to live vicariously through you while I'm stuck in front of Microsoft Word tonight!

  1. Good luck with your dissertation! Have fun on Tuesday xo

  2. I know exactly how you feel about your dissertation! I've been super lucky with mine and used newspapers which are all online so I haven't had to visit any archives, though I know many friends who have been in and out forever getting stuff and I still have to go for other modules anyway. Mines not due until 13th April though (Friday 13th of all days!) but I'm hoping to get it handed in next week once it's been proof read and bound! But I definitely cannot wait to get it out for my life and treat myself. Good luck with yours and enjoy your night out! xo

  3. Good luck on finishing off and handing in your dissertation!

  4. I've just bought The Shins new album, I hope it's good. Good luck with your dissertation, can't believe I was doing mine 3 years ago, it feels like yesterday :')

  5. Good luck wth your dissertation! And have fun tonight!

    xoxo, Laura
