term has now ended


Hey everyone! I’m writing this on Word in a cafĂ© 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.

Also, click here for a little piece about schwurlie on Olivia Swash's blog!

Okay goodbye, I am off to find some dinner!

so I didn't get an outfit photo EVERY day...


But I did get a few at least. Also, when uploading my photos I realised that despite what I said about having never included other people's pictures, this is quite simply not true. Why did I say that? haha

As it turns out, taking photos every day is quite a task indeed. It simply will not happen haha. OH WELL. Let me show you the photos I do have though.

These are the only photos I got of Cambridge. Mainly because the sheer number of amazing buildings makes photographing any of them somewhat pointless. You'll only get the full experience if you actually go there. So  yes, I do recommend you take a trip. Also partly because after a while I just wanted to put the camera away and have a nice cup of tea with the twin.

Oh and I just had to take a picture of the jellybean William / Kate picture just because it was brilliant hoho.

So yes. Wonderful to take a trip. I got to go to one of my sister's lectures haha (she is also a law student) so I didn't even have to feel too guilty about missing one of my own. 

Apparently I'm really bad at looking suave in photos. Not even 100% sure what day this was from. But anyway, another outfit photo. I've been debating whether or not to return these shorts for like a week. I've half-wanted leather (or 'pleather') shorts for about a year but have never been 100% into them enough to actually spend the money. I saw these in H&M the other day for £15 so I just got them but... slight regrets. They are really short. Not sure why I'm telling you this, but I just had to express hoho. Still love my Uniqlo sweater. Why don't Uniqlo make them anymore? The crew neck ones? They are clearly better than the v-neck ones. But moving swiftly on...

I got this shirt in the mail the other day, sent by Sugarlips Apparel!
I'm not sure it was supposed to be worn like this (as in kind of wrapped around), but I put it on and... it just felt right haha. That being said, it's supposed to be worn just tied in the front like this. Which is nice, and I've worn it like that since. So there you go.

Bit of an ANTM-esque wind machine type effect going on here but... it was just windy in there haha. But anyway! Yes! Thankyou very much to Sugarlips Apparel for sending it to me. 

Just before I go, here's Charlie looking suave.
