Living In Leuven: Week 14 | Erasmus Law Dinner & Flying Back to Edinburgh

It's my last week in Leuven this year, and besides the obligation of having to study almost every day, my friends and I managed to fit in a couple of Christmas celebrations throughout the week. I also flew back to Edinburgh on Friday - it's a bit strange being home, but I'm enjoying catching up with my family and the comfort of my own bed, so I'm more than happy for the time being.

Eyelash Extensions: What to Expect & My Experience

(what to avoid!)
I hate my eyelashes. They aren't very dark and although they are quite long, the length weighs them down and they're pin straight. Not a day goes by where I can leave the house without using eyelash curlers blasted with the hot heat of the hairdryer and lashings of black mascara. I don't mind doing it (I LOVE makeup), I'm happy to sit for an extra 10 minutes to do my eye makeup, but I fancied a change.

Living in Leuven: Week 13 | 'I Survived Leuven' Party & A Day Trip to Cologne

I can't believe I'll be back in Edinburgh this time next week for Christmas - this semester has flown by! I'm actually really upset to be leaving Leuven next week, so I've been trying to make the most of my final few weeks with friends that are only staying in Leuven for one semester.

Living In Leuven: Week 12 | Shopping In Antwerp & A Weekend In Budapest

Monday began with a Constitutional Law class at 9am and I then decided to travel to Antwerp on a shopping trip (very last minute, might I add). Again, with the nerves I explained a few blog posts back about travelling to Brussels on my own, I travelled an hour away from Leuven and directed myself around Antwerp without feeling anxious or apprehensive at all!

Living in Leuven: Week 11 | Studying In The University Libraries & Lokomotion Party

As exams are slowly creeping up on me, I've had to devote any free time to studying, so it's a bit of a shorter and uneventful post this week unfortunately! I spent the beginning of the week catching up with my assigned readings for constitutional law- the textbook is very dry and boring to read, but it had to be done.
