Yeah, it's Tuesday and this is a little late. After recent events, blogging took a little back seat while I worked through my workload, but I'm back and ready to go. The past week has been full of travel and adventures - some welcomed, some not. It's nice now that everyones on university holidays though and back for the break so I get to catch up with friends again for some more exploring. Now, I'm going to watch some more True Detective with my brother before I get an early nights sleep, continue reading for my highs and lows of the week.
I go through periods where I collect make up, then clothes, then jewellery. I'm currently back on the jewellery craze, endlessly searching for the next piece to add to my collection. I think jewellery is really the only thing that I don't tend to ever sell or replace, so most of it collects a lot of sentimental value. I'm big on delicate pieces currently - mostly because I'm too lazy to take it off everyday so I like to go for pieces that I can leave on and know they'll go with pretty much anything. Here are a few of my favourites that are my go-to pieces when rushing out the door, perfect 'lazy girl' accessories if you're anything like me. Now, I'm off to continue packing for the weekend road trip ahead, hope you're all having a great weekend!
How a moment can make such a big change. From is to was. A simple instance that rewrites your history, the story of your life you planned to tell others. I've had a few of these lately, but today's makes all the others insignificant in comparison. It's on days like these you wonder why anyone really cares about following a set path - from school, to university, to career - if you're one of the privileged few that is able to make this choice for yourself. Why anyone lets others stop them from doing what they want. Why everyone is so quick to judge. But this is life, that's the reality and if you're alive to make the most of it, you're still one of the lucky ones. Enjoy yourself kids, you only get one shot at this life.
I've been running high on coffee and adrenaline for most of this week and now that it's Sunday night, I think it's time to crash. I've been really busy this week despite my exams, and I'm happy to announce I now (technically) have a degree. I never really pictured myself finishing, kind of like I'd just be in this limbo where I always had another paper to do to finish, so I'm pretty stoked that the day has finally come to say goodbye to that all - and I got to have a lot of fun celebrating the end. Now it's back to the 'real' work where I have to sort through all the work I've been putting off for the past three weeks e.g. my email inbox. Oh and with the end of my exams, comes the 6th Birthday giveaway winner, so keep reading for that and my highs and lows of the week.
It's been a while since I put a mood board together, and I miss it. I'm such a visual person that it's almost a relief when I get to work so creatively on my blog, after hours spent reading and writing essays. Currently craving a complete revamp of my closet to match the images above - I need to get my head around the fact that I need to 'break up' with the pieces I've become attached to no longer wear, let alone need, and there's a lot of them. I think I could technically be deemed a hoarder at this point. Out with the old and in with the new right? Just another thing to add to my "what I'm going to do once I finish uni" list, which has grown exponentially since I've been using University as an excuse for the past 6 months. Opps.
I've officially lost all sense of time and I feel like I'm about to repeat everything I said in the last re-cap since my brain = mush. This week has been crunch time for me since my
impending doom exams are less than a week away. It's kind of bitter sweet knowing that everything is about to change all over again, as I start my next chapter 'in the real world'. The routine of working is actually something I'm weirdly looking forward to and I can't wait to have a complete overhaul of my wardrobe. As with any other time I should be studying, I've managed to fill my days with a heap of procrastination and socialising, until my guilt has forced me back to the books. So here's another lot of highs and lows for the past week - how the hell are we already half way through June already!?
