Monochrome Dress with a Red Lip

Primark Lipstick red super matte liquid lipstick monochrome dress

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! I feel like all of my weeks are just blurring by as it's a similar routine every week and before I know it, it's the weekend again! Two of my best friends came round to visit this weekend and we had a lovely little catch up! Then during labs this past week I did a transfection. I basically have a gene of interest which I inserted into circular DNA (plasmid) and I put it into bacterial cells so they'd grow up loads up my DNA for me, I then extracted this DNA and mutated a few different base pairs. On Thursday I tried to insert this "bacterial" DNA into human cells and hopefully they took it up into their cells and expressed my gene of interest. So on Monday I am going to find out whether it actually worked or not and if there are any interesting results, so fingers crossed!

Embroidery Dresses

H&M Embroidery Dress Bodycon

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! Labs are pretty much back in full swing so the long grueling days of DNA extractions have started again. I have to extract DNA from 350 samples and I'm currently on 230 I'm nearly there :') It's a bit of a pain as I can only really do 12 samples in a day and it takes forever!I should be done in the next few weeks though and then it's on to the next step :)

Prague 2016

Prague Vlog Things to do

Hey everyone! I hope you've all had a good week! I've had quite an easy week in labs, I didn't give myself too many experiments to do but it's going to pick up from now on, waah! I've also been trying to get back into gym and I actually went everyday which is surprising XD I've been trying out classes to see which ones I liked so I ended up going to the gym as normal on Monday where I mainly did squats, Tuesday I tried Yoga, Wednesday Pilates, Thursday Zumba and then Friday was in the gym and the main exercise was deadlifts. I'm hoping I can keep some form of exercise going for a while haha as I'm actually very unfit and I have no stamina at all!

Monochrome Trousers at the Shard

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I had a lovely time in Prague and I went a bit snap crazy so I need to sort through the photos and somehow cut them down to fit in a blog post XD It's been really nice to have a week off from Labs and switch off my brain so I don't have to keep thinking about how my experiments are going and what I need to do next. I kind of wish I had another week off though! :)
