Summer Placement & Home Wear Galore!

Hi guys! 

I know I am really terrible at keeping my blog! But I have been up to a lot recently :) In fact I've not long come back from my two week work placement at Welsh Mountain Zoo! 

I had a great time there, but it made me realise just how much hard work it is being a keeper. Majority of the day is just manual labour, scrubbing, cleaning, scooping, lifting, carrying and walking up and down the welsh mountain! I thought I was relatively fit until I started there, now I'm investing in a gym membership. But interacting with the animals made up for it. I got so close to some amazing animals, brown bears, tiger, snow leopards, margay, meerkats and more. I was allowed to hand feed the margay which was the highlight of my whole placement! 

I took a few quick pics on my phone so sorry for the poor quality :) 

Now I'm back I've been spending most of my time looking and lamps and scatter cushion for my UNI HOUSE!! You may have guessed, but I'm very excited ;) I can't wait to be living in Chester! 

My favourite purchase for my house is this beauty...

My Abigail Ahern lamp from debenhams! How gorgeous is this! I love the colours and the textures too. The hare is felty so it feels a little furry and the shade is velvet. It is a bit pricey (£85) but I had some vouchers and I just instantly fell in love with it. I was the talk of the store when I picked it up on Friday! It was the only one in, as the designer wasn't officially launched until this week. 

I'm also a little bit addicted to eBay at the moment...

I picked these up at around £6 each! They are mini but very cute :) and as I've got a king size bed I'm going to just cover it in cushions :p 

My latest cushion was this....

I saw it in BHS and I'm a sucker for all things owl! Again a bit pricey for a cushion (£20) but there's a bit going on on there. Lots of floral fabrics, buttons, and textured fabrics. I really like it :) 

I can't wait to move in and put everything in its place :) 

Anyone else moving into a uni house? Or had any interesting trips this summer? 

Oh also still selling some clothes, accessories and other stuff on my eBay :) check it out
