Happiness this week is... #35

A few days off uni this week, actually four, I've had no lectures since Monday! I thought it'd give me the chance to start a revision plan but also relax...not so much but at least the days off meant I could sleep and recover from another migraine!

A seriously needed catch up with a seriously good friend. She cooked me a great dinner and we basically sat in the same spots from 9pm to 4.30am! Clearly we had a lot of ground to cover! 

Getting into another new series, Once Upon a Time. But of a strange twist on a bunch of classic fairy tales but I love how they adapt the story to fit with new characters and so that they can intertwine all the fairy tales.

My mam, dad, and sister came down to Portsmouth for Mother's Day (Sunday 15th March) to go out for pizza! We went to pizza express which is my fave! Then we went for quite a long walk along the seafront and I showed my parents a few places, like hot walls, where I used to go with friends last summer. It's a bit cold now to spend a day at the beach!

Being ridiculous posing for photos.
Despite it being Mother's Day and us giving our mam a few gifts, she brought down a huuge stack of New Scientist magazines and National Geographics for me! I've already read one article called The War on Science, I wish it was online so I could share it! Goddamn real printed magazines.

How are all of you? I'm shattered so here are more photos than writing! Link me to your latest post and I'll go read and comment, I'm so far behind on catching up with everyone's blogs but I'm trying to still comment now and then :) xo


  1. I love these happiness posts, it makes me think about the nice things that have happened in my week too, so thank you :) When I'm not at uni I live nearish Portsmouth and your photos are making me want to go back haha. Hope you get time to relax and feel less shattered!

    I feel very very cheeky posting my latest blog post, but this is it: I wrote a list with some of my tip for going cruelty free :)

  2. Aw you're very welcome! Portsmouth is the best! I'm very lucky to be at uni here. come visit aha! I've been relaxing this afternoon although I should have been doing coursework really...

    Don't feel cheeky! ;) while I can't keep up with everyone's blogs right now I still want to be making effort, thank you for leaving the link, sounds like a great post too! Gonna read it now while I'm still chillin' ;) xo

  3. haa tempting! relaxing time is definitely needed too though :) Thank you for having a look! xx

  4. I love the photo's you took! I have been thinking about watching Once Upon a Time, just didn't get into it yet.

  6. Thank you :) I'm pleased with them too, the sea here isn't usually that peaceful and it just looks stunning. It's pretty good, I haven't watched it in a while 'cos I find it kinda drags and I'd rather it was more focused on the big storyline than all the little ones now :/ x

  7. Aw thank you that's very kind of you :) x

  8. I haven't read New Scientist in ages, not since my first year at uni. I quite enjoyed getting my subscription of Nature though in my last year. Since coming to Belgium, I've not read any science magazines. Or much science for that fact. Sigh.

    I really enjoy Once Upon A Time, I think it's a pretty alright show :)

  9. I love it! My mam buys them for me and then sends me a huge stack hehe, my housemate reads it too though he doesn't study science, I think it's great how it's written so it's understandable to wider range of people! :) Oh dear :( can you buy New Scientist in Belgium? If not, want me to post you on a stack of them once I've read them? I have a huuuge pile to try to get through right now haha!

  10. I think I've seen New Scientist here, I think I remember seeing it in the post office down the road, and it's in English :) I can also get National Geographic haha :)

  11. I love your style girl and these photos are beautiful!! I can't wait to read more of your blog!!
