term has now ended


Hey everyone! I’m writing this on Word in a café right now (Blakes in Newcastle to be precise). The internet isn’t working for some raisin but I don’t want to waste any time in getting this done gosh darnit. I just ate a very expensive cookie (£1.50) and let me tell you that never again will I buy a cookie while oot and aboot because they are invariably disappointing. But the latte was good. So on we go.

We were bored the other day (as one tends to be in Durham when basically the entire town leaves for break) and went up to the Cathedral. If ever I become disillusioned with university life, the best thing to do is to get out of town for a bit. Hence my going to Newcastle a lot! If this is not an option due to being low on money, the next best thing is to go to the Cathedral. So that we did, and as the light was so nice and I just happened to have my camera with me (ohoho), we took some pictures.

The dress is from Sheinside.com... for which I have a coupon code!

...and also, the bag is from H&M, coat + fur is vintage! Charlie has recently started a Lookbook so click here to see it.

So what else can I ramble on about? WELL. Next week we're going on an Englandy holiday. We're going to London, then Brighton, then back to London, then to Bristol and Bath, and then back to London again. I can't wait! Many photos will be taken. The only downside is that we're going to London by coach which will probably be horrific, but still. I'm also going to Leeds the week after to visit some relatives which will be fun because I haven't been there for... what, 15 years?

New tutorial coming soon though. Yeah.
