INSTA WEEK #4


Back to Portsmouth today, and I really cannot be bothered for the drive.  I haven't even attempted starting to packing yet.  Whoopsies.  

I have also been completely mugged off, courtesy Diamond car insurance.  I've only just gotten around too putting my new uni address on my insurance, which may I add, is about three houses away from my old house.  They think that it's acceptable to charge me £70, because apparently I am now living in a much higher risk area.  Bullshit.  I know that car insurance is a massive rip off anyway, but I swear this is just blindly stealing from me.  Bastards.

This has been a very ranty insta week ahahaha, I just have so much rage for Diamond right now.  Soz.

  7. It's times like these that I'm thankful that I don't drive - the insurance is an absolute rip off! I love your polaroid camera though, I got one for Christmas, except not the mini but the chunkier version.

  13. Car insurance is definitely a complete con - you change anything and they charge you when it takes 2 seconds to update the policy. I need to use my Instax Mini 8 more! xx

  15. Omg that is naughty of them. Send them a tweet & we'll all retweet it and maybe they'll listen! Im about to renew my insurance so won't be going with them. You need some awesome playlists to get you through that drive!

  16. £70?! That's ridiculous! I definitely agree with Sarah-Jane that you should send them a tweet or something, companies are less likely to brush off complaints if they're public.
    I love your make-up in the last picture, by the way :)

  21. Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog :) So sorry to hear about the payment, that's so frustrating! I completely agree with you, car insurance is already ridiculously costly as it is. On another note I absolutely love your blog, and I hope 2015 turns around for you! Best wishes!

  33. On the car insurance subject - especially if your a student you can't afford anything to go up in price :( especially if you've only moved 3 houses away! & how are you finding your Instax camera? I have the pink one - I think the pictures look so nice, I love watching them develop.
