I have graduated!

So, that is it! That is the end of my three years at university, and I can say that it has been one of the best experiences!
I will be writing a ‘My University Experience‘ post tonight, so it will be up tomorrow.

I graduated in St David’s Hall in Cardiff on Thursday, which was a really nice venue. I was getting excited for graduation weeks ago, then I started to dread it incase I fall over – but it was actually an amazing day and I’m sad that it’s already over!
It was a really nice day, super sunny and it was amazing to see some of my friends (couldn’t see too many as we were so busy) before we all leave, as most people have moved home already.

We had tears of happiness, sunshine, Red Hot Buffet and such a good day with friends and family.
Here are a few photos of my graduation day, I wore a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Tartan Aztec Dress, with my Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Heart Sandals.

Also: 46 Days until Australia!

Liebster Award!

So, some lovely bblogger had nominated me for the Liebster Award on here! The only problem was that I was so busy at the time, that I am only now getting around to it and have completely forgot who nominated me – so I’d like to say: I’m sorry, but thank you for asking me to do this!
Here we go then..
What beauty product could you not live without?
I could not live without eyeliner, mainly for appearance-wise. I feel that eyeliner frames me face completely and can transform my ‘morning’ face and make me look slightly decent! My eyeliner of the moment is the KissMe Heroine Make Smooth eyeliner from Japan – it is literally like a sharpie to the eyes! I struggle to get it off with a miscellar water!

What beauty product could you live without?
I could definitely live without stuff like foundation, this is mainly because I only recently started to wear it – yes, it gives me coverage, but I don’t really mind if I don’t wear any! Although, my favourite one so far is definitely Rimmel’s Wake Me Up Foundation!

What is your favourite inspirational quote?
I’m not really a person for quotes, but an inspiration of mine is Anne Frank and I always love her quote:
“Think of all the happiness still around you, and be happy”.

What is your dream job?
My dream job would be in a design studio, either working on pattern design, illustration or web design. I would also love it to be somewhere else other than the UK, I love to travel too much.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I really want to travel around America and Canada – I would also like to live out there swell. I would then like to explore the more ‘hidden’ places of the world!
Although from August onwards, I am going to be living in Australia for 12 months, then visiting NZ, Fiji and America!
If you could meet anyone one person who would it be?
This was a really hard question. I would probably say that I’d love to meet Vivienne Westwood one day – she is such an inspiration and a strong woman. I love her style and how she presents herself!

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging as I wanted to become more organised and schedule things out. I thought that blogging would really help with this. Also, I tend to talk and talk about things that my flatmates are really interested in, so I thought that I should show my opinions and thoughts with likeminded people, that have the same interests!

Where do you get most your inspiration for blog posts?
I mainly like to blog about whatever comes from my head. My blog started out as mainly a beauty blog at first, but I have ventured into writing book reviews, film reviews, travel posts, technology.. My blog has basically turned into an ‘all of Zoe’s interests’ kind of theme!

Do you have any other hobbies other than blogging?
I really enjoy reading, illustration and running. Other than them, I really like to travel, see new things and meet new people!

How would you describe your style in 3 words?
I would say that my style isn’t really a particular style – I tend to change a lot and mainly wear certain things for comfort and my body type. I never use to wear dresses or be adventurous with clothing, but now I am completely a dress, tights and boots girl!
I do enjoy wearing a pair of thick leggings with a long tshirt though – comfortable, but not too lazy looking!

What’s? your favourite clothing store?
I don’t think I really have a favourite clothing store, I don’t tend to buy that many clothes now because I have to sort my old clothes out first and being low on money, with no job in my third year! Although, I am starting to grow a rather big love for ASOS, it’s just so easy to return items and they present the clothes really well on the website. I would say that I do like to shop in places like New Look, Urban Outfitters, Topshop (rarely, due to the price, but they do have some nice things every now and then – although quality is sometimes pretty bad in their tshirts). and H&M for the rare basics that I need!
