My Leeds bucket list// Places I want to go in Leeds this year

It's my final year of university, and this year one of my goals (apart from studying and all that) is to really get out and enjoy Leeds. It's such a cool, vibrant city and I want to make the most of it- I don't have long left as a student and I also don't know if I'll be here after I graduate (probably not, sadly). So here is a list of places, some I've been to before and some I haven't, that I want to go to this year in Leeds.

Year 4 of uni goals ♡

studying flatlay
So my final year of uni is gonna start in a week or so, (I study Japanese at Leeds) and I'm super nervous. I think because it's the last year, it feels like my whole future is riding on it. Which is kind of true, but it's also silly to worry too much about it I guess. I both love and hate the feeling of a new academic year: a whole new leaf, but at the same time a tonne of different stresses. I have a lot of goals for next year, and while I really want to do well in uni, I also want to do well outside uni: spend lots of time with my friends, get out and explore Leeds more, and carry on blogging regularly. So here are my goals for final year:

Autumn vibes collective haul// Lush, The Ordinary, plants etc,

autumn vibes collective haul
Cliché as it is, I loooove autumn, so without even realising it most of the things I've bought recently have tended to be cozy and perfect for autumn, like tea and candles. Fellow autumn lovers, read on!

Empties #7// Lush, Crazy Color, Lee Stafford, Etude House etc.
I'm still trying to use up and slim down my beauty products, and this is the latest batch of empties. A lot of the products this month were things I really love and old faithfuls that I buy time after time, and there were a couple of little treats as well.

OOTD// My Uniform

OOTD my uniform
Anyone who knows me IRL knows that I'm a pretty serial outfit repeater... I tend to buy a new piece and then get absolutely obsessed and wear it again as soon as I've washed it. This shirt is definitely one of those pieces. I picked it up from depop a few months ago (I blogged about it in my new in fashion haul) and it's been on heavy rotation ever since. It's thin enough for summer, but the colour means it's also perfect for autumn/winter too! I hadn't planned to take outfit photos that day, but when I saw this wall, I had a classic blogger "this wall is cool stop everything and take my picture!!?" moment and made my sister take a few snaps.

I made a Youtube video!! Makki grey

Exciting news today! As you'll have gathered from the title of this post, I made my first youtube video! I decided to film myself dying my hair grey because my review of Makki's hair colouring mask in grey is one of my most read posts by far. I figured that if I was going to make a Youtube video, I might as well make it useful!

I've been mulling over trying youtube and teaching myself how to edit videos for a while. So when I had some free time this summer I decided to take the plunge and film myself dying my hair! It was suuch a learning curve, and it really made me respect youtubers for how long editing takes...

So here is my baby! I hope you enjoy it!

I have a couple of other videos I want to make, definitely a room/plant tour of my uni room in Leeds, and I might do some more fashion/ hair dye reviews depending on how much time I have, so go ahead and subscribe to my youtube channel if that sounds like your cup of tea <3 <3

Thanks for reading/ watching!! If you have anything you want me to film, let me know and I might do it??
