It is starting to feel as if every time I sit down to write a post here, the first sentence that comes to mind is always something about how hectic the last week has been, trying to balance everything all at once and often making the mistake of over-booking myself in an attempt to fit as much into each day as possible. I think this lifestyle has actually become normal to me now, so it shouldn't really require a sentence describing it because I've had a hectic week every single week since I started college, and I am quite certain everyone else with studying and exams coming up feels the same way. This week was a particularly interesting one though as I have my AS art exam today and tomorrow, which has taken up a lot of time at school and in preparation. It's probably one of the nicest exams that exists though, and my piece for this project involves lots of draped fabric, layering and beading so I am quite content.
It was a slightly less sunny day compared to the first few of our holiday, so I ended up wearing a few layers (which I love to do anyway). I wore my leopard top and suede skirt from Beyond Retro, with a silky shirt from a vintage shop on Portobello road, H&M socks, Topshop coat and my bag from Mi-Pac. I feel so comfortable and at home when clashing patterns for some reason, and am still ridiculously excited to own a panelled suede skirt (especially as Beyond Retro make their own, so they have sizes that fit instead of the unusually big or small skirt sizes you often find preserved from the 60s).
I am really getting into wearing jewellery at the moment and have been wearing my stone necklaces from The Astrology Shop almost every day recently. The earrings were from a kilo sale.
We stopped outside a pub and once again I had a little experiment with my new polaroid (Fujifilm mini90). I still can't get over how it works so efficiently considering how tiny and lightweight it is. I bought it on a whim with a gift-voucher from my God parents and cousins as I'd wanted one for ages, but now don't understand how I lived without it - it's great to be able to get physical copies of photos straight away sometimes, instead of always having to wait for them to be developed.
We had dinner in Rojano's, which was a fantastic idea as it meant I got to comfort myself about going home with a crazily good chocolate sundae.
