Life Update | Sixth Form, Disney, Spending Ban + Meet Up

It has been nearly 4 months since I last did a chatty life update post, in the last one I did I talked about how I had finally gotten a surgery date, that seems like ages ago! This post is a 100% positive update as well, I have so many exciting things to share with you, exciting to me anyway. I love writing these chatty posts as sometimes doing lots of beauty reviews and OOTDs draw the personal element out of my blog, a side of my blog which I really like. This might be a bit of a random post, I might end up just typing up anything and everything from the past 4 months (not really but you get the jist).

Sixth Form
Today after having 3 months off school I finally went back to Sixth Form. It was only for an hour but it is a good start! My recovery has definitely taken a lot longer than it should have but I'm glad I'm starting to go back to 6th Form now. It was so weird being back there, seeing lots of familiar faces and also finding out that I am now taller than most people in my lessons! One thing that is very different though is that I'm only doing English Language lessons/exam for the rest of the year now, I'll start sociology and psychology over again next year meaning I'll be doing an extra 3rd year at 6th Form. This is the best way to do it because I have missed way too much work now, it would impossible for me to sit all 3 AS exams this year! I'm really happy with how things have turned out.

Disneyland Paris

One thing that I have hardly shut up about on twitter, well everywhere really, is that me and my best friend who is also a blogger, Hannah, are planning to go to Disneyland Paris for my 18th next year! A lot of people go to Disney when they are younger but I have never been so I can't even explain how excited I am! I've got nearly 18 months to wait and about £800 to save up for the 3 day trip but we are both determined to get there, I'm so excited I might burst with joy. This is your official warning that due to extreme overwhelming happiness I will not stop talking about the trip for the next 18 months, apologies in advance. 

Spending Ban

This leads me nicely onto my next little update which is that I plan to do a 2 month spending ban starting in April and ending at the end of May. I'll of course do posts on it when that time comes around! I have no idea how I am going to save up for Disney so I can see myself doing many spending bans in the lead up to it, hopefully it will help me save money! Feel free to join me on my spending ban, I'll be starting on April 1st.

Blogger Event/Meet Up

Again leading on nicely, the reason I'm not starting my spending ban until April is that at the end of March I'm heading off to a Herts, Beds and Bucks Blogger Meet Up/Event in Milton Keynes, all my of close blogging friends are going so I'm really looking forward to seeing them and maybe doing a bit of shopping! I'm pretty sure I'll be well enough to go by then but fingers crossed anyway. If you are from Herts, Beds or Bucks give Trend Life Magazine/Trend Life PR a follow on twitter here or here to find out more, they are always tweeting about it, or tweet them for more info!

Let me know about what you have been up to, or have you got any exciting upcoming plans?
