The proof is in the pudding

Not a lot to blog about really. My life this week has mainly consisted of uni work and actual work. Although I did an interesting phone interview with a woman today who got her Christmas cake poisoned by a house guest and she only found out because the woman died 2 days later and her dying words were 'I poisoned Julie's Christmas cake' Pahaha how bizzare is that.

Also ordered my birthday cake today, eee! It's a giant pink strawberry flavoured cupcake from Lola's Cupcakes in London and I am trés excited to chow down on that bad boy. Also ordered two dresses off Asos because I can.

Thought the black one was a good basic and might be good for work placement at Cosmopolitan and the second one because I love the colour and I have various birthday/weddings events coming up.

Also Camilla at is having a giveaway so check it out!

Sad day...

Thoughts and feeling are with those who have been affected by the earthquake in Japan.

No such thing as a free lunch...

Today was a more interesting Thursday than most, my morning lecture was cancelled (yes!) so had a long lie in, did a wash, tidied my room and did some uni work - so far so boring. Although this afternoon we had a luncheon with our course mates just to get everyone together.

We got a free meal, free drink and a free glass of champagne - although the champagne tasted a bit like a flannel. While we we we're toasting our great successes on the course - ahem - I realised how little time we have left at uni. Only 3 weeks left before our Easter break and then our dissertation stuff is due 11 days after we get back. Not very much time at all.

Time really has flown and it's giving me a bit of a panic, soon enough I'll be moving back home and having to find PAID internships and jobs as opposed to the unpaid ones to get your foot in the door. Either way it has given me the kick up the arse to do some work and I am doing workbook stuff now before time really does run out.

A blog is born...

This is my first post on Go With The Fleur and to be honest I feel a bit out of my depth! I'm an avid reader of many fashion, beauty and general lifestyle blogs and since I'm doing a journalism course and hope to be a writer, having a blog seems the right way to go.

Saying 'Go With The Fleur' out loud kind of gives you a yorkshire accent which I do not have - how deceptive. I'm actually a midlander, from Northampton although I hope to make the move to London in the next year after I graduate (eep!) from SSU. In my last year of uni studying Magazine Journalism with a couple of internships lined up (Cosmopolitan and YOU magazine, if anyone is interested) so hopefully I'll have some interesting stuff to write about in the upcoming months!

I don't actually sure what this blog is gonna include yet...probably just day to day ramblings, maybe some uni work and a dose of fashion and current affairs I'm guessing - just gonna go with the fleur
