Weekly Round Up

001. Last Monday I totally re-designed my blog, I'm talking image mapping, HTML, CSS - you name it, I did it. It did drive me round the bend but I needed a change and I think it was worth it? I quite like design, so it might not be long before I change it again, maybe December. 


002. Journalism students at our university are being offered an all-expenses paid trip to China to report. This would be an incredible opportunity so I'm going to start my application this week!


003. I found out on Friday that I was one of two winners of Lara Lain (@LaraLain) www.ifeellikeidreamtit.com 's giveaway. I did a post on my excitement here and I'm looking forward to receiving it in the post. I'm going back to my parent's next Friday for the weekend so I'm hoping it will arrived by then so I can try it on and blog it :) 


004. Yesterday I went to TOWIB (The Only Way is Blogging) event for bloggers. Held at Babble Bar and organised by the lovely Hayley (@LBQblog) www.londonbeautyqueen.com , there were an array of workshops from make up tutorials, photography tips, HMTL lessons and a Q&A session with bloggers of the minute. It was my first blogging event so was quite nervous to go as I literally knew no-one. Luckily the girls I met were lovely and I hope to stay in contact with them! I'm going to be blogging independently about the event later on tonight, so I'll stop talking now and save the rest for later ;) 


005. Today my parents booked flights to Sydney for us to go next summer. We've been looking to go for years (as we have family over there), but we've never got round to it and added to the fact that it's very pricey! I'm SO excited to go as I've never been before. Although it's weird not being there when they booked it as I have no idea of the dates we're going, the time, where we're staying and who we're flying with etc. I just hope my mum's remembered not to book it when I'm graduating as I definitely don't want to miss that! Time to get saving :)
