Life Update: I graduated!

scarlet forrest

So last week I graduated from the University of Leicester with First Class Honours in a BA (Hons) Politics Degree. I am so proud and pleased that I got to share the day with my very best friends and family members! I just thought I’d share with you some pictures of the day with my thoughts!


We went up to Leicester the night before and went for dinner at my favourite Indian restaurant in Leicester, Poppadoms. Seriously, everything is so yummy there and the naans are enormous! If you’re around the University area you have to check it out. Anyway here’s a picture of me and the mumma at dins, excuse the fresh face.


Here are a few pictures my Dad took  (he’d just bought a new camera and was super excited to be using it, love you pa!), of the Student Union building which was my home for three years and my place of work for my final year. I couldn’t have found a better job during my time at uni and I will miss it and the people there so very much!

Obligatory throw your hat up photo with my very best friend. We look ridiculous but I love this picture so much.

And last but not least, the only picture my brother (gotta love him) was (kind of) smiling in.

At the end of the day we went to Frankie and Benny’s for late lunch/dinner which was nommy but we were so so so tired. Didn’t stop us dancing on the way out though. Perfect end to a wonderful day!
