One down

So I've just finished my Psychology exam and I'm trawling through a massive discussion thread on The student room trying to reassure myself. On the whole I think I've done ok, loads of people have missed out on 17 marks because one question ended half way down a page and peope didn't know to turn over. So I'm so glad that I did - the page was deceiving and I almost missed it. People are also saying that the grade boundaries might be lowered because of this. I'm really hoping so!

I have an english exam on friday and then I'm done for the summer!


New edition

Yay I love waiting for the postman. The other day I ordered this ring and it came 3 days later, it made me very happy. And what made me happier was the fact it was only £15 from Ebay. It is quite a lot for just a ring, but it's a lot less to pay £120. One day it shall be replaced with the real thing, but until then this will do nicely.

I decided to buy black because as you saw from my last post, all my rings are turquoise. And I didn't like the look of the thick, black, cracked lines. Also, it will match with pretty much anything.

I found only two sellers on ebay that sold these types of ring, one sold them for £25 and this one (that was more difficult to find) sold them for £15. So I'll leave a link for you lot.

Board revamp & ring pots

So after a year of waking up to the same old notice board I finally got round to changing it. If there's one thing I've learnt this year it's that I can't do work without the room being tidy, so doing this counted as cleaning. Sort of. In the process of doing so I came up with a little idea... ring pots! Before I show you what I did, these are the jewellery piece I bought the other day. I'm so glad that high street stores are finally embracing the whole 'turquoise-jewellery' look.

This was from Primark for £2.50. I'm pretty sure I've seen it all over the internet, so the price isn't that bad!

Another beautiful little piece from H&M, they never disappoint when it comes to jewellery. A few weeks ago I saw them doing rings like this in brown but it seems they've expanded their range to brighter colours now - which is great.

So I found some clear plastic lids and I pierced a notice-board pin through them, then pinned them onto my noticeboard. I thought it was a good idea because I only have a few rings and I tend to lose them easily. If I put them in these little lids I know exactly where they are and they look pretty displayed. If you want to do this there's nothing to it, you could put tissue paper in the bottom of the lid, a nice wrapping paper behind the ring or even try different sizes. For mine I just went to the bathroom and got the lids of this colgate toothpaste we have. Try it!

Off topic, but I'm really loving these at the moment!


Quick illustration

Whenever I'm revising I always see out of the corner of my eye an old ASOS magazine. And it distracts me because it makes me want to leave my revision and sketch some illustrations. So yesterday I decided to treat myself! My last exam is on the 24th and I'm already counting down the days. Is anyone else anticipating the end of their exams?
