Mi Amigo


Another day lazing about in the sun. When there are no assignments to be handed in, uni life really is the dos they talk about :)
One of the perks of having an art student flatmate is they can work your big DSLR and take your photos with no fuss, one of the downsides, i suppose, is that they insist on "experimenting" by putting their sunglasses over the lens...
Hence the sepia, gradient shit going on! But it's okay cos she's a free photographer and i am eternally grateful!

mint humbug


This is what i wore on my actual day of birth on Wednesday. I had a very, very chilled out day but it was no less lovely and big thanks go out to the people who made it so :)
I'm very much in love with this shirt at the moment because it stops me getting fried by the sun but doesn't make me stupidly hot (who loves sheer, i do!!). These jeans were a gamble though, i love pastels but mostly on other people or in accessory form so i was a bit nervous buying them, i love them now though so i guess they just needed gothing up a bit!

Just because i can, here are some other photos from the day:

I asked my flatmate to take OOTD pictures and she started with snapping me trying to get up. Nice!

Here's me and the flat mate responsible, 'scuse my eye, it was trés sunny.

Finally, here's a picture of me cruising round campus on my friends bike: loving life <3

I turned 21 on Wednesday 23rd May.

instead of rambling on and on about time flying and growing up and all of that. I'm just going to post pictures from the party i had last friday, which was glitter themed. (I had glitter tequila jelly shots and a pint of glitter to glitter bomb people with and glittery cake and glitter nails!!!) It was beautiful. I just typed the word glitter SO much! :)


I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can’t do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can’t vomit from drinking at 26. I just can’t! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We’re obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It’s kind of sad actually because I don’t think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We’re so concerned about doing things “the right way” that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young.

u n i


I just thought i'd share a few uni night out outfits. The pictures are fairly typical university night out pictures and i'm not trying to be all like "ooooh look at me and all my alcohol/ciggies/awesomeness" but that is a part of my lifestyle so, yeah, hope no one is too offended :)

It's all coming to a close here now, lots of people have finished everything and moved out, i can hear suitcase wheels outside my window as we speak! I however still have two assessments, so no 3 week end of freshers binges for me! I get home on June 10th but i have no idea what i am doing with my summer yet. I've applied for a lot of residential jobs working with kids so i could be living anywhere, wish me luck with those pleeaassseeee :)

I am dreadfully sorry posts have been so sparse but it has been quite difficult, much more so than i anticipated, to keep this little gem updated. I'm going to work harder at it over the summer, time allowing, and hopefully maintain a once a week ritual next uni year :)

I hope all readers are well and happy and beautiful and things. Big Love <3
