To be completely honest I have been a little overwhelmed the past 24 hours and so my time schedule is all a little mucked up. As in, I just went to the supermarket and it's 10 o'clock. This is what living alone slash travelling around every other day does to me. I went away for the weekend though and it was a welcomed break filled with too much sunshine, friends and nothing else. Another highs and lows of the week of course would follow...
I quite often spend late nights scrolling through Tumblr, dreaming of places beyond my little cave behind my laptop. It's sort of a tradition for myself to reflect on my week, to write down places I want to see and the person I want to be. I think I would forget half the things I want to do if I didn't write them down - scatter brain syndrome. I read this quote that said "I can't abandon the person I used to be, so I carry her" which kind of made me realise how often the past is meant to shape us, but I carry the burden of a lot of it with me, it's what I can't seem to forget. Anyway, these are just some thoughts after the week I've had and what I've decided I want to work on: letting go. Come join me on Tumblr for more incoherent rambles
I was in a bit of a panic when I realised almost everything I could possibly want to wear to my friends 21st on the weekend was in the HUGE washing pile scattered all around the house. To be fair I probably could have tried to sort through it all, but between moving around over the place the past three weeks I really didn't have a clue where anything was. Lazy girl fix: Kendra went shopping. Plus it was sale time so it seemed like a pretty logical solution. I picked up this Stylestalker leather like lace up skirt half price. It's really high waisted (although you can't tell in these photos) and sucks e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in. It's kind of borderline bondage and all sorts of badass so it had to come home with me. Now, I really need to start on that washing..
The heat wave that we've been stuck in has taken a serious toll on my productiveness, not complaining, but it's hard to get anything done when you just want to lye in the sun all day. The past week has come and gone in pretty much a blur and who can really believe that January is more than half way over? With that being said, I'm going to enjoy the rest of the night with pizza and Scandal with one of my favourite people, but first, a run through of the highs and lows of my week...
There's nothing quite like early morning exercise, followed by fresh fruit from the trees outside and a swim in the river. I came home to get some work done before I get too far behind and I did get to shoot some photos yesterday so suuucesss! Oh the things you are limited to when you take fast internet out of the equation (I miss Netflix). Now for essay writing before I pack to return to the city tomorrow. Unfortunately travelling around with my laptop means I don't have everything to sort my images out so they'll be up once I return so as per, here are some photos from my tumblr feed to match my current feels. They definitely have me lusting after beach sunsets, a really good highlighter and the freedom of living without a schedule.
2015 is going to be my year of experiences, and it has started in my backyard. I never really get around to seeing a lot of the local attractions and so when I had an unexpected visitor it provided the perfect opportunity. I'm definitely going back to take proper photos there because the grounds are gorgeous, but since it was a spontaneous trip I only had my iPhone to take these quick outfit snaps with. This outfit is pretty much my "i'm half asleep and can't find anything to wear in my floordrobe" look, which also translates as my casual wear. I got these suede converse before the new year but this was the first time wearing them out forgot how comfy converse are and perfect for unexpected adventures. Plus, they're suede so they feel fancy.
