OOTD: work hard, play hard.

Excuse the terrible student house lighting and grainy finish!

These past two weeks have been incredibly boring. All I’ve done is get up, type up essays, go to the gym and go home. I’ve hardly even left the house except to work out and it was really starting to get me down. I’ve been feeling really guilty for doing anything other than university work but this week my housemates were heading out and dragged me with them. Even my dissertation supervisor advised me to go and blow off some steam… If  your tutor is telling you to go out and party then it would be rude not to, right?!

It felt really good to get dressed up properly and to wear a full face of make-up and to do my hair. I’ve just been living in my gym kit and comfy clothes for the past two weeks so it felt great. I wore a dress I bought from River Island over a year ago and have only worn once along with my trusty neon shoes (also from River Island) and a turquoise clutch bag which I bought whilst on holiday in Greece. I decided it would be good to inject a little colour into my outfit, despite the dark, dreary weather.

It was a really good night and I didn’t get in too much of a state as I wanted to get up and do work the next day and didn’t want one of those hangovers which would make me want to eat everything in sight. Thankfully I got everything I wanted to do done yesterday so it just goes to show; if you work hard, you need to make time to play hard too!

Lots of love, 

Jessie. xoxo
