Welcome to my little corner of the internet....

Hey everyone (presuming there is anyone reading this, who knows?!)

Well, this is officially my first post so I feel it is fitting to introduce myself, right? I'm going to kick of my blog with a few facts about me, so here goes...

1. I'm from a lovely little village (practically a hamlet really) in the North of England - don't get me wrong I adore living in the countryside but sometimes the life of a country-bumpkin can get a tad boring - lucky for me Manchester is only a short train ride away so I can still get my shopping fix pretty easily :)

2. Living where I live, I was naturally brought up with horses, my first birthday present was a pony and I've been obsessed ever since. At the minute I have two ponies and I have had them for so long now that they have become part of the family - like pets. I've never been into competitive jumping or cross-country so I just ride and practise those disciplines for fun. I am also learning to carriage drive because I have sadly outgrown one of my ponies but I still want to be able to spend time productively with him :)

This is on my campus - how pretty?!
3.I just started uni, (nearly a month ago now - wow; that seems to have gone really fast!), so I'm just settling down after a big upheaval in my life. The decision for me to go to uni was an obvious one for me, as it was necessary for me to undertake higher education in order for me to work in the NHS, but the choice of which uni to go to was really difficult - part of me wanted to stay at home as I'm such a home-bird (I love my family too much to leave them) but part of me wanted to follow in the footsteps of my besties and 'fly the nest' and move to a completely different part of the country and 'go it alone'. Eventually, my desire to stay near my family swung the decision for me and I was so lucky to get accepted by my first choice uni which is just half an hour away from my house - win! - and it's a beautiful countryside campus so I feel super at home there as soon as I step on campus. So, please don't hate me if I post a few 'feeling-sorry-for-myself' reminiscing musings because I am finding it so hard to not be near my besties anymore.

4. I have always had a strong desire to travel - having spent nearly all of the holidays in my childhood in the same destination (which I absolutely loved, don't get me wrong!) as I've gotten older I've realised how many more places there are in the world out there that I have yet to experience; Venice, Madrid, Australia, New York, Milan, Nantucket, Kentucky, The Hamptons...the list is endless! So be prepared for many musings and endless wanderlust on here :)

American Road Trip - yes please!
5. The place I most want to visit is America - I can't believe that I have gone all of my 18 years being surrounded by American TV, books, food (Reese's - ohmylife!), etc. and yet I have still not visited the Land of the Free. As an off-shoot of this I have become utterly obsessed with everything Southern, Country and Preppy; my wish lists are filled with Sperry's, Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, Campfires, S'mores, Critter-adorned everything, Nautical accents...I feel like after surrounding myself with 'Southern' and 'Preppy' blogs and tumblrs - and loving everything! -  I really am a Southern Belle at heart!

6. I have an unhealthy love for buying clothes, accessories and make up (be them high-end or high-street) - fab for blogging I'm sure but not so great for my bank balance! So many hauls and presumably a few reviews are bound to follow, I'm sure :)

7. I have quite a varied sense of style; one day I feel like being ultra preppy; the next I'm wearing a band tee, skinny jeans, vans and a hoody; and the next I want to dress like a Newquay surfer - I tried to mould myself into just have one clear sense of style but I have since realised that my sense of style is influenced by all these different styles and that a mix of all these different 'looks' is my style - if that makes sense?! :)

8. My music tastes are pretty random too, though mostly I tend to listen to indie, pop/rock, pop and my guilty pleasure - a little country (in respect of my inner Southern Belle - obviously!)

So, I hope that after reading this you feel as though you know me a little better and I'm sure I will be posting again very soon :)
