OOTD // No diamonds in the trees, just leaves of gold*

Monday, 24 November 2014

Hello there!
Am I the only person in the world that sometimes has trouble finding dresses? Surely not! There is always that dress that has too small a waist or shoulders and it feels like it can be nearly impossible to find a nice dress that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and hours of wasted time in cramped fitting rooms. If you sweat about this as much as I do (which is quite a lot - I do like a nice dress), your saviour may come in the form of eShakti.

LIFESTYLE // Autumn Essentials

Friday, 21 November 2014

Hello there!

Autumn has well and truly landed in Van and I am finding myself reaching for scarves and jumpers every single day. There are a few bits and pieces that I also keep reaching for at the moment – not clothing wise – so I thought I’d share them with you!

OOTD // Granville Island

Tuesday, 11 November 2014

Hello there!
A week with no labs means I have a lot more time on my hands. I managed to get last week's lab reports done last week and they aren't even due for another week. Let's just say I am very happy about that! I decided to use my time wisely and go spend the day at Granville Island with my housemates. It's so lovely - definitely worth visiting if you are ever in the Vancouver area!

STUDY // Study Abroad: 2 Months In

Sunday, 9 November 2014

Hello there!
Yes, that's right. I have been here for two months now - TWO MONTHS.
It has been two months since I have seen my family. It has been two months since I have seen most of my friends back home. It has been two months since I last saw my cat. If I was in the UK, I'd have visited home at least 3 times by now - crazy. Do you know what? I'm okay with that. I'm STILL not feeling homesick and I'm super duper surprised.

Don't get me wrong, I do really, really miss everyone back home. I miss being able to text them randomly during the day and get an instant response. I miss just phoning someone up for a chat. Now I have to Facebook them and say 'SKYPE SESH THIS TIME OKAY' and it just gets rid of the spontaneity a little bit.

Excitingly I am coming home for Christmas! I really want to do some travelling but I just need to get out of Van - can you believe that?! Don't worry - I'll explain later.

Anyway....time for an update!

LIFESTYLE // #lalalove #2

Thursday, 6 November 2014

Hello my lovelies!
What happened to this being a biweekly thing eh? I have had the craziest time at uni recently. Last week I had 8 assessments due in 7 days (yes - I haven't handed one in. I feel like such a rebel. It's quite liberating. STICK IT TO THE MAN) Anyway, if you want to know more about that I'll be doing a study abroad update post in the next couple of days so stay tuned for that.

Today I am finally going to do my second #lalalove post! Even though it has not been so lovely these past two weeks (because come on - there is not enough time in a week to do 8 assessments including 3 mid-terms) I have been trying to cling on to some happiness and here it is!
