A Festive Day in London

Last Saturday me and my best friend decided to visit London and pretend to be¬†tourists. As I haven’t done any vlogs since I was traveling in the summer I missed vlogging so much! So I decided to use this opportunity and film a nice festive vlog for you guys ūüôā

We arrived in London just after midday and after we both bought a Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks at Victoria Station we made our way towards Buckingham Palace. We always do this “tourist-walk” as I like to call it: after seeing the palace we went through St James’s Park and found the Big Ben with the London Eye, then we headed towards Trafalgar Square.¬†

Of course, as all the tourists do, we had to take some pictures at the most iconic spots! Here’s a little comparison of me in London now and exactly one year ago (because I love recreating old photos!) (also, I really miss my long hair) :

I still do not know how, but we also managed to finally take the picture that I wanted of me for years! Me standing in the little tunnel opposite Big Ben. Everytime I went there it was so crowded¬†that it was just impossible to take a photo of me alone without any other tourists, and we almost gave up now as well after standing there for approximately half an hour waiting for one person (!!!) to take a picture. But as we were about to leave… suddenly the tourists have disappeared for a couple of moments, and we quickly took the photos. We were so lucky! I can’t even believe it. And here’s the iconic photo that will probably remain my profile picture on Facebook for at least a year:

How amazing is that?

(Can you spot the cheeky seagull? I would’ve been surprised if none of them had decided to ruin my perfect picture. I can still see myself sitting ¬†on Brighton Beach eating my fish and chips without the fish. Since then I am at war with every seagull in the world.)

After this, we continued our sightseeing tour at Baker Street, Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street, Soho, Leicester Square and Covent Garden.

I love going to London in the festive season, the Christmas lights are amazing and the atmosphere of the city is incredibly exciting. I wouldn’t recommend going on a Saturday evening though, especially not during Black Friday weekend, as it was very VERY crowded. But that was kind of expected, and I think it also just added to the excitement of the day. I think my favourite part was Oxford Street because the huge shops are very exciting for me (you don’t see shops like these¬†in Hungary, that’s for sure!) and that’s also the place where they go all out on the Christmas lights. It was just amazing!

I just had the best day ever at my happy place with one of my favourite people! I hope you will all enjoy the vlog as well as my little additional stories in this blog post. Let me know what you think in the comments! Would you like to go visit London in the festive season or would you rather avoid the crowd? What other cities do you like visiting before Christmas?

Hope you all have a great day and are getting as excited for Christmas as I am!

Morning Routine – At University

In this video I’m showing you what my morning routine looks like when I’m at university. I think it’s really important to have a nice morning routine that you enjoy doing, because it can put you in a good mood for the entire day, so I thought I would show you mine today. Let me know what yours looks like in the comments!

I always put on the radio while I’m getting ready, because some good songs and jokes always wake me up and make me happy. I always find myself laughing during the radio 1 breakfast show ūüôā My favourite part of getting ready is probably doing my makeup, because I love how confident it makes me feel. You can’t even imagine how much I care about matching my makeup and hair with my outfit, I am so busy thinking about this every morning that I basically forget to worry about university.

So after I do my morning routine I am ready to face the challenges of the day, or most of the time just ready to sit in the library then go to work… and live the fabulous life of a student you know.

University Room Tour 2016

First video from my new room! Since I moved back to the UK at the end of September I have been constantly buying decorations and trying to organise everything in the best way possible. I was very excited to make this video so I hope you will like it. Let me know what you think!

Some information about my accommodation: I live halls at the University of Southampton, and I have a non-ensuite room. I have 5 flatmates and we share 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. I think my room is amazing because it’s modern and the colour of the furniture definitely goes with my aesthetic so it was really easy to make it feel my own. Regarding that I am an international student I obviously possess way too many unnecessary things, like decorations etc, but I have already given up on trying to¬†restrain myself from shopping so it doesn’t really matter anymore haha. It was also a challenge that I’m not allowed to make any drastic changes such as changing the curtains or getting new furniture. So I had to use little bits of decoration like colourful pencil holders and fairy lights, and I think I did a really good job. I absolutely love this room and I’m a bit sad that I only have it for 10 months haha.

Here are some little pictures of my room:
