Graduation!

                              Issa Graduate...
My type on paper ;)




3 Years all summed up with a cape and gown and a certificate. I still can't believe I've finally done it and how quick it has gone. Looking at these pictures, I am honestly proud of myself for coming this far and sticking with a course that my interest fizzled out for. Graduation was a hectic day, just as everything Sarahwise is! I was over an hour late and almost denied entry but somehow I ended up walking across the stage and collecting my certificate, (phew). But, anyway let me not waffle! Word of advice, what seems impossible can be possible with the right mindset and determination and with faith in God!

Sunkissed


                             Sunshine & Smiles...


So this is just a post of where I attempt to spread some positive vibes! I have just recently finished a three year degree and I cannot believe I actually made it and I cannot wait for the next step, Masters! Below is a few tips I would advise for those doing a University degree or anything that seems achievable or difficult to obtain. I know, I know, some of this advice has been said and heard before but it is never bad to have a friendly reminder!

1. Keep a tunnel vision - do not compare yourself to others, make yourself the focus.



2. Company - Surround yourself with those who motivate, uplift and support you. 




                      
                      3. Set yourself goals - this will push you to do better and get better.


      4. Problems/Stresses or issues - Ask yourself will this matter/affect me in a years time?

                           
    5. Mistakes - Don't beat yourself up for them, put yourself down or blame yourself. Instead learn and grow from them.

Hayu

                           A Night in with Hayu...


So with uni deadlines and exams approaching fast, I decided to take a break from essay writing and revision while I still had a chance. This meant finally I had some time to catch up on all the reality shows I’ve been waiting to binge! As a uni student it's not always easy to watch the most current shows, and it can be frustrating having to wait for episodes that are already released in the US to be released in the UK. Hayu for me is the answer to all those problems – it’s an amazing reality TV on demand app, which allows you to stream and download all the latest shows for only £3.99 per month and without the tedious wait! Even if I have no more data or I’m somewhere with no signal I can still watch my shows offline which is a huge plus! My personal faves on there are Keeping Up With the Kardashians, The Real Housewives of New York and Bad Girls Club... You’d be surprised how much you can find on there. You even get a free months trial once you've signed up, what's not to love?!?!




So much shows to choose from!



This cute little, but powerful speaker really brought my shows to life!


There's even a article section with goss, tips, fashion and more!



I'm off to watch my shows now!

Bandage Love

Pretty in Pink...





Part Two!



I have fallen in love with bandage and I do not want to go back! I have been eyeing up this dress for the longest time now and I just grabbed the opportunity when I could to wear it. For those of you who don't know I am a bit of a stay at home girl/grandma! So it was nice to get out of the house and dress up. I just love the way this bandage dress smoothed out my shape and fitted everywhere perfectly, as if this dress was personally tailored for me! I felt the colour of the dress looked good on my skin tone. I completed this outfit with my nude heels from PLT and my mauve faux fur/fluffy bag from Boohoo. I thought wearing three different colours would be a bit of a risk but it turned out that they all complemented each other really well.

LFW was absolutely amazing and was completed by the super cute Blogger Programme Hangout. I got to meet great people, tried flower making and received so many goodies! I wore a white square neck midi dress and a dusty pink/brown aviator jacket. I absolutely love the colour on this jacket and how warm it is. More on this outfit on my recent Boohoo Haul.

Burgundy Babe


  Fine Wine...




Happy March! So this is just another post from my trip to Malta. If you haven't already go and watch my Malta vlog and subscribe to my Youtube channel which I have just recently started. But anyways! This is just an outfit post of this cute little number from Whistle Candy. I absolutely love this playsuit! The colour just complimented and popped on my skin. It was also super comfy, but not wind friendly, as it was in Malta that day. I decided to team this burgundy number with my Boohoo choker, a perfect match.
