99: Pink hair again and weekly outfits #4

These outfits are from around exam period... I was super stressed and wanted something to cheer me up, so I did my hair pink ^^ I wanted something that would fade out quickly, so I chose Bleach London's Rosé again.
I liked it best when it was a couple of washes in and a light shade. 
Aanyway, here are my outfits from that week:

This 'odango' twin buns style seems to be more fashionable since the '90s trend :D

Thanks for reading! *\(^o^)/*

98: I'm going to Japan (^O^)/ 日本に行く予定です!

Sooo, I've been putting off this long, explain-y post for a while, but as the title says, I'm going to Japan!
I'll be studying abroad as an exchange student for a year at Osaka University. Im leaving in mid September! I'm super excited and obviously, I'll tell you guys all about it ☆
So soon I'll be making some Japan posts (!)  
And before that, expect some posts about Leeds, studying Japanese and Uni life in general ^^ 
Thanks for reading ☆〜(ゝ。∂)

97: CDs I've picked up lately: SuG, Nirvana, David Bowie, Ramones

Hey guys ☆〜(ゝ。∂)
I haven't blogged about music much lately... Mostly because I haven't seen any lives since November.... Not happy Amy. However, I've picked up some CDs lately ^^ 
I always forget how awesome physical CDs are~ 

So, the first CD I picked up was SuG's new album, 'Black'
I bought this from Amazon for about £20, making this the priciest album I've bought for a while ^^;; but it was worth every penny ♡ for me the stand out tracks are 'SOS', 'dead or dead' and of course their singles 'B.A.B.Y.' and 'sweetoxic' 
It's no secret I love SuG, and their latest offering does not disappoint in any way ♡
I'd recommend this to anyone ♡
Here's the music video for 'B.A.B.Y.', go check them out ♡

My friend Tasha got me 'Bleach' by Nirvana
I had 'nevermind' before and I'm always listening to it, so I asked for another of their albums ^^ it's so great ♡ the version I got also includes recordings of a live they did, which is great~
standout songs for me include 'negative creep', 'Swap meet' and 'Blew'
Nirvana's earlier stuff is well worth checking out ^^ it's not all just 'smells like teen spirit' (which is still an awesome song though)
I can't find this album on their Vevo YouTube channel, so here's my favourite from their most famous album, Nevermind, 'Lithium' 

I found 'Ziggy stardust' by David Bowie in a charity shop for just £4, score ^^ 

This includes some of my favourite songs of his, like 'starman', 'ziggy stardust' and 'suffragette city'. 
But also some I hadn't heard before. Standout tracks for me -that I hadn't heard before- include 'you better hang on to yourself' and 'lady stardust'.
Here's a link to 'ziggy stardust', if you haven't heard Bowie before ^^

I bought Ramones greatest hits album the other day~
I'd never properly listened to Ramones before a few weeks ago, and I got hooked to their catchy songs ^^ I picked up this album for £6 in HMV (proving that sometimes it's cheaper to buy a physical copy than the digital one.... Although as somewhat of a technophobe, I'm bound to say that ^^;;)
My favourites so far from this album are 'do you remember rock and roll radio', 'pinhead' and 'I wanna be your boyfriend'.
(I can't find an official-type YouTube channel, so no link unfortunately. However, I super recommend you check out the Ramones ^^

What music have you guys been listening to lately? 
Thanks for reading ♡

96: weekly outfits 3

Hey Guys (^O^))/ 
another outfit post here~ actually it's a bit more than a weeks' worth, because I am behind with posting these ^^;;
It's slowly starting to get warmer here in the UK, so you'll see me slowly wearing less of my beloved sweaters :o I'm not well adapted to the warmer weather and burn easily, so I'm not wholeheartedly welcoming the summer... At least there's sunglasses and ice cream, right? <3

Thanks for reading <3
I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather~ Or are you secretly wishing for autumn, like I am?

95: my summer goals~

So, I've finished my first year of uni (!!) and I have a long stretch of summer ahead of leaving for my year abroad in Japan (more on that in a later blog post though) 

So these are my goals for this summer:

  • Start running and get more toned up
  • Spend more time on the blog
  • Revise Japanese for at least one hour a day
  • Sort out all the paperwork for the year abroad
  • Meet up with my friends more
  • Practise guitar for at least 20 minutes/ day 
  • Fix my broken sleep schedule ^^;; 
  • Eat more healthily 
  • Go to the theatre
  • Have a picnic
  • Go to the beach

Obviously, Japanese is the priority.... I need to still be able to understand people next year ^^

Do you guys have any exciting summer plans or goals? 

Thanks for reading~

92: Primark haul~

Hey guys~ 
So I wanted to show y'all a couple of pieces I picked up from Primark lately :)
Mostly it was useful stuff, I'm proud of myself (^O^)/ 
Firstly, I got a new bag and purse because my old ones were sooo worn out ^^;;

Then I saw these lights for just £1 (plus of course I needed batteries) and added them to my room~ I think they look all right ^^

Do you like Primark?
Thanks for reading ♡
