Soo the new academic year has rolled around once again, and for a lot of people this means a new start and potentially a new house too! I've done my fair share of carting my stuff across the country, and here are the things I do to make sure I'm settled back into uni and back into a new place as soon as possible.

'Osaka' things I miss so much

Osaka is the best city in Japan. Just saying. And I know I'm being a cliché year abroad student who won't shut up about their year abroad, but I honestly think I left a teeny piece of my heart back in Osaka. So here are a couple of thing I miss about Japan, and particularly Osaka.

Guitar Wolf @Brudenell Social Club 21.03.18

Japanese punk band Guitar Wolf on stage
So in March I saw a band that completely blew me away- Guitar Wolf. They are a punk band from Nagasaki, Japan and they were absolutely crazy! So high energy and mad. We were really lucky to have them in Leeds as they only played three dates in the UK- London, Brighton and Leeds.
They played soo many great songs, like Jet Generation (which is my fave), yajyuu vibrator and Fujiyama attack. Their songs and music videos are slightly mad, and I hyped it up for myself quite a bit and was wondering if they'd live up to it: yes, yes they did.

New Youtube Video// My uni room tour/plant tour

After my plant tips post last week, I finally got round to editing my uni room tour <3

You can see how I made my room in an old Leeds terraced house as cozy and aesthetic as possible (mostly by filling it with plants). It's super real and I was just making the best of what I had, so although it's not the most pinterest worthy, hopefully it will be actual real life inspiration for how to decorate on a student budget.

I've been bleaching my hair for years now so I've tried my fair share of silver shampoos, as well as making my own DIY silver shampoo, to help maintain the colour. A good silver shampoo is an important tool in your arsenal if you have grey hair (notorious for washing out quickly), or if you want to keep blonde or white hair from going brassy. So here's a roundup and comparison of the ones I've used so far:

Why plants are the best & my tips on how not to kill them

silver haired girl and pothos plant
A lot of you might know that I'm a teeny bit obsessed with house plants. I've had a crazy couple of years at uni, and one thing that's kept me sane is having my room full to the brim with cute house plants (I called my fourth year room "the plant cave" and it was a pretty accurate name tbh. I've been meaning to make a proper post about plants for a while, and I got a comment asking for some plant tips recently (hi!) so here goes nothing:

my minimal (ish) uni makeup collection

I made a post of my minimal makeup collection on my year abroad in Japan, and it's been a couple of years so I thought I'd make an updated version. I'm trying to keep it minimal (kind of succeeding, although I've definitely collected more since I got back to the UK, oops)0 and I'm pretty happy with the little collection I've got here.
