history

I can't believe its been over 4 months since I last posted. I want to apologise to you all for having gone MIA here for so long and also say a great big thank you to how many of you have stuck around and kept following. You really have no idea how much it means to me, so thank you so much.

To put the past 4 months or so in a nutshell, in April my mental health took a turn for the worse and I had to withdraw from uni. Not only that but one of my rabbits was diagnosed with cancer in June and then died only two weeks later. To say it was a horrible, horrible time would be a huge understatement. However, after taking the time to get better and reassess things I decided that I wanted to go back to uni and resit 1st year again, so I could have a fresh start. I'm gonna really, really miss my friends who are moving on to 2nd year but I'm looking forward to going back with a lot more confidence and a more positive outlook. I'll still be living in my flat and I plan on living there for as long as I can and I also plan on paying a lot more attention to this 'ere blog! 


So, anyway, I thought I'd share with you a few sets of photos I'd actually managed to take over summer, so this post is gonna be a bit of a bumper edition! First off is some pictures from July when me, my mum and my dad traveled a bit around Northumberland and visited a gorgeous little village called Corbridge. The weather that day was amazing and we had a really posh Sunday dinner in a local pub and then went for a walk along the river which you can kind of just see in the first picture. We also went on a bit of an expedition to find Hadrian's Wall and after driving a long way we managed to find a section of it we could stop by and have a look round, in the second picture you can see me stood on one of the turret sections of what would have been a fort I think. Always nice to have a bit of 2000 year old wall to stand on for outfit pictures isn't it?

The second set of pictures was again from sometime in July when me and my mum just went for a walk in one of my favourite places, Golden Acre Park in Leeds. As you can probably see I have been favouring the maxi length recently as over the past few months I've ended up putting on weight and I've just felt more comfortable wearing longer skirts and dresses.

My last set of photos are from when my mum, dad and I spent the weekend in Bath. We visited the Roman baths (there's a bit of an unintentional Roman theme going on here) for what must be the third or fourth time because my mum loves it there. I love it as well, it just has this really amazing atmosphere that's really hard to explain. It was quite a warm day so I went for a slightly shorter (and longer!) skirt by the brand Love that I got from Topshop and a black bustier top from H&M. The bustier was originally covered in embellishment but my mum and I spent one day a few months ago painstakingly removing them all, as I'm really not into sparkles. Now that its just a plain bustier top I literally wear it all the time, so expect to see it a lot more in future!

Just on one final note I wanted to thank you all so so much again for sticking by this little blog while I've been away, knowing that there are people here who are still interested in what I get up to has been a real motivation towards getting my self back on track, so I am really grateful for that. 

Anyway hope you all have a great weekend!
