Student Perks.

Student life sucks, let’s be honest.ย Exams, deadlines, all-nighters, alcohol, unhealthy food. It’s not good for you. The only perk to being a student nowadays are the discounts you get and the ‘student-focused’ campaigns from shops. However, the big chains don’t … Continue reading

OOTD & DDOA (Daily Dose of Adventures: Yep it’s a thing now)

Today’s family day was a what I can only describe as hectic-ly slow; my dad had a speed awareness course this morning so my mum and I were basically just trying to kill time. Though saying this she woke me up at 10am to make me take her to ASDA for flour for the takeaway haha, I know 10am seems pretty late but I hadn’t slept very well the night before due to having bites (from midgies I think) so they were driving me crazy with the itchiness. I’m so prone to bites I used to hate going anywhere but England but now they’ve reached me here!!! I clearly just need to move away to my own island where nothing can find me. Kinda sounds appealing!

Anyway so yeah after ASDA, my mum and I went to Matalan and Tesco just for a wonder and I started to get some stuff for uni, it’s only a little haul that consists of like 3 things but I’ll post that tomorrow to show you guys what I got so far in prep for my university life. This is what I wore today:

As you can see I am still loving my crop tops! I regretted this outfit later by the way because when we arrived at Preston, to meet up with family friends that we see like every Monday (<3), it suddenly turned horrendously cold ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyway as I said, we went to Preston to eat dinner, we had LOBSTER, it was pretty good but I still like the way my dad cooks it the best here is a gallery of events:

I have no idea what my fortune cookie meant but I guess I hope I don’t hear any news because otherwise it will be bad!

So that’s what happened today, hope you guys did something more interesting than me!

PS. Next door are having their roof fixed and the builders are really really creepy like:

Like seriously the kind that don’t even try and be subtle that they are checking you out and watching your every move.


PPS. I have been wanting to change my theme for ages because I realise the font is kinda hard to read (for you guys that are actually directed onto my page not guys on wordpress) but I want something pretty yet simple nothing too fancy or elaborate and I can never find something that satisfies those qualities. Just wanted to share this slightly saddening thing with you ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Yeah so guys, the plan fell through turns out both of those URL’s are taken! But you know what?

I kinda like just staying as EmeraldPhial, afterall as my dad says why change a good thing??

So I will be keeping this URL from now on sorry to mess you guys around!!!


This is a post about what I got upto (so if some of you don’t care this is a warning haha!)

In the morning I got ready to go have lunch with my parents (and claim my presents eheh):

IMG_0842 IMG_0850 IMG_0851

I really really REALLY wanted my hair to stay like that for the evening but unfortunately I had a nap and it squished ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

My grandma and I have developed this strange tradition as well that on my birthday every year she would make me boiled eggs for breakfast. Literally just boiled eggs. I don’t know whether it’s a chinese thing but I’m just gunna see it as my grandma and I’s own little tradition.


When I arrived at my parents, my lovely mother greeted me with this minging drink that was supposedly to help my throat get better quicker (on second thought I think it did speed up the process..). Guys it looks harmless but I swear to god it was rank ๐Ÿ˜ฅ She’d tried to sweeten it with honey bless her but that just gave it a really odd taste, sweet then with an after taste of bitterness.


After having lunch with my family, I went to tom’s in order to finally getย my present that he had been withholding the day before, it wasn’t fair! I was there when it arrived!!! Why would you torture someone like that?ย His parents got me loads of cute little things too mostly stationary but they got me this adorable little cake as well!

Due to the icing being quite hard, I improvised:


After spending a little time at Tom’s I then went home to get ready; two of my friends came a little early just to hang out because we’re all lonely. We started pre-drinking at like 8:30. I told everyone to come at 10. I swear we don’t need to go to AA.

(The ginger one actually went missing last night ahaha, she went out for a smoke and just never came back. I’d text and rang her with no reply! Then text me in the morning like I don’t know what happened but I’m home safe and sound. She apparently didn’t even smoke, she said she thinks she saw a takeaway, was gunna get food then come back and just didn’t and went home hahaa. Silly moo.)

This was my outfit that night:

And I got a lovely little snapchat from my work friends:


We went out to Poulton a little after 11pm, here’s a gallery of us: some funny ones were unfortunately blurry so I haven’t included them. Enjoy โค

The last one was my friend taking a picture, ON MY PHONE, without me hence my WTF face :’)

Anyway, we got in about 3 but I slept at 4am ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I rang my mum in the morning to see if we were going shopping today and she was like: I thought you wouldn’t want to go because you want sleep? I was like PFFFTTTTT do you know me? As a consequence I am insanely tired and cannot wait to just collapse into a comatose state.



[slyly taken in a changing room as I forgot to before I left the house. I blame my mum, she was rushing me and I was in no state to be rushed)

Good news! I found my camera cable so I can now take good quality photos for you guys! (I say this but I’ll probably still use my phone for most things because: I am sloth.) However, I did go through ordering a new cable since I thought I lost my old cable, then realising I ordered an incompatible cable, then ordering the right cable, then finding my old cable and now I am waiting for my two completely pointless cables to arrive so I can send them back in shame. It’s safe to say that when I found my old cable I wanted to weep slightly with joy and slightly with why-the-hell-does-this-happen-to-me-I’M-A-GOOD-PERSON-whyyyyyyyy?!

Anyway, so that’s us all caught up! You guys been upto much? I will be posting a shopping haul soon so watch out for it! I’m just waiting for everything to arrive ๐Ÿ™‚

I also signed up for BzzAgent as advertised by beautywiththeblogger: because it sounded cool and fun and I like free stuff. So hopefully I’ll get some cool samples too!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Hope you guys have had a good weekend! I have ๐Ÿ˜‰
