001. These are a few pictures of my holiday to Florida. We went for a family wedding, so it was really lovely to catch up with cousins over there. After the wedding we went on a Royal Caribbean cruise, which I have to say was great fun, BUT/ there is no Internet out at sea! I didn't know this until I got on board, and a week away from the world almost killed me.. I'm not the type of person to switch off and relax; not having my phone actually really stresses me out. So all I can say is that it's so good to be back home and back to blogging.

002. My first year Uni results were a BIG wake up call. They weren't terrible, but I really was expecting more. My first year didn't really live up to any of my expectations, I didn't make the most of it, and I regret that. If anyone is starting Uni in September then make sure you don't miss out on any opportunities, whether it's out of laziness or fear of what others will think. You will regret it if you do. For me, I'm pretty sure that just because I didn't do everything I wanted to in my first year, it doesn't mean it's too late. In September I plan to get my arse down to the careers service, join a few societies that I'm interested in, and just put myself out there and meet more people. I'm also thankful that my first year didn't count towards my degree. I can pass it off as a 'trial run' and now having seen how much harder I need to work I can actually do that where it counts.

003. I've started driving lessons which so far are going really well. Fingers crossed I can pass before I go back to Uni.

004. Now on to the bloggy stuff - I heard that Google Reader/ Google Friend Connect were going away on the 1st of July, but mine is still working as normal.. Does anybody know what is going on there? I don't want any of you to miss my posts, so here are a few more ways you can find and follow me online:

Bloglovin': I've been using Bloglovin for a while now to follow my favourite blogs.. It's a whole lot nicer to look at than the Google version, and much easier to find new blogs to follow. You can also import all of the blogs you already follow with Google in one simple step when you sign up. Click here to follow me.
Twitter: I tweet everytime I post on my blog, so if you follow me you'll be sure not to miss any of my posts. I also tweet a lot about things that I've been doing / watching / reading, and if you want to ask me anything then  feel free to tweet me at @nishKpatel
Instagram: I Instagram alot more when I am at Uni, simply because I do more interesting things, but I post quite regularly. My pictures tend to be of food, drink, any shopping I do and any products I'm testing for HIW. Follow me @nishKpatel

005. Post wise, expect to see more of my holiday snaps and an America haul. I've also got beauty posts lined up of products I bought in the States. Is there anything else you would like to see?

006. When I started HIW I expected it to be more of a style blog, with me posting ootd's regularly. So far I've only done one, due to not having anywhere to take pictures at in my university halls, and no one to take them outside for me. L is going to take pictures for me starting in September, but for now I may do a few mirror snaps, particularly of some smarter outfits when I go for work experience in a few weeks.. Let me know if you would like to see more outfit/ style posts?

 007. Apologies for the long catch-up post, and have a great weekend everyone!
