JUST DON'T CALL ME WHEN IT FIZZLES

 Hi!!! I am so sorry for neglecting this blog and I blame it on a combination of college and general ennui. I spend something like 12 hours a week travelling, plus classes and coursework and in my spare time am usually too exhausted to do more than huddle in a duvet burrito and try and catch up with tv shows. Dressing for college is also sometimes a chore because it's just so cold at 7am and I mainly wear a lot of black and baggy jumpers. It's a disorientating change from the claustrophobic grammar school I spent 4 years at- notably that there are boys, there are people of all ages, everyone has piercings/tattoos/dyed hair, everyone swears constantly and it's cool to discuss your sex life with teachers. Most of the time I feel like a child who has wandered in by accident and at any moment will be kicked out.
 Today I finally photographed an outfit though as I am at least partially awake and made a slight effort. Seriously, one day last week I realised by mid-afternoon that I had just put a coat and jewlery on over my pyjamas and gone to college like that.
 This coat is vintage Burberry and I can finally wear it without sobbing about Castiel. My leather choker is from eBay, moon necklace was made by me and my citrine healing crystal is from Wild Ones in London.
 My jumper and shoes are Primark (DON'T JUDGE ME I COULDN'T FIND A DECENT VINTAGE ONE OK) and my skirt is from Portobello market. I spent a weekend in London during half term which was lovely and at times it felt like summer.
 Tights are from eBae and I dreading the day I have to start wearing woollen ones as I have a truly impressive collection of opaque ones.
 Also hair! It took seven rounds of peroxide to strip out the ghastly faded green dye and at one point the hair dresser got desperate enough to try coating it with ketchup in an attempt to neutralise the colour. So I am blonde at last and I love it.
 What else is there to say? My darling little hamster Puffy was put to sleep after developing a brain tumour which was tougher than I expected and felt like the end of my childhood.I came home from college one day with a little dwarf rabbit (now called Nutmeg) and she is adorable if a bit antisocial.
 The lovely Etsy shop Miss Fluff sent me these feather earrings. They're so light and delicate and don't feel like they're going to catch on something or fall apart like most pendant earrings. Plus they're nicely subtle and blend into my hair a little and are generally magical. I drunkenly pierced my own ears last summer so they are understandable lopsided but it works with these as they waft around. Their Etsy shop is full of beautiful hand cut leather jewellery so check it out.

MY HEART IS LIKE A STALLION

Hello! I started college a few weeks ago and am finally feeling sane enough to start posting again. College is amazing, it is situated in the middle of a forest and it is completely normal to walk out the doors and find a herd of wild ponies or baby donkeys being fed by their mothers outside. My train journey is also beautiful, every morning and afternoon I pass cornfields, farms, wild rabbits and deer and all the best British countryside. My courses are all highly enjoyable. It can be quite lonely though as I left behind a very solid group of friends. Also my iPhone was stolen on the train though which has been really frustrating, especially when it seems like such a friendly place. Anyway, these are some outfit pictures I took on the last day of summer.
 This was the first and last time I wore dungarees all summer actually which is odd as I wore them constantly last year. Mesh is my new love in life.
 I am in serious need of new tights. I always buy them from obscure Chinese sites which yields interesting results although waiting 1 month+ is tiresome so for now I shall have to keep wearing pairs like this which are riddled with holes.
 These shoes are absolutely incredible, I'm a normal height in them which is nice. I seem to be having really bad luck lately though because the soles split after a couple of wears so fingers crossed I can get them repaired. I am 17 on the 30th September so if anyone feels like throwing some size 6 platform shoes my way hmu (not desperate I swear.)
My hair is just sort of doing its own thang lately, I'm growing out the colour so it can be thouroughly rebleached and hopefully I can attain a paler shade of lilac.

KEW KEW KEW


 This is going to be a very long post and I am not sorry at all. After interacting online and writing to each other for FOREVER Sinead and I finally met up in London!!
 We went to Kew Gardens in London which was the fabbest and most tumblr place imaginable and now I wanna be a tiny pixie who lives on plants.
 It was nice to be around someone who didn't get annoyed at me for following them with a camera (bloggers unite.)
 The antique green houses were stunning and one of the best parts.
 We drew up plans for a tumblr themed theme park, with free Starbucks, goals boyfriends/girlfriends to hire for a day, lots of plants, roman statues and pools, obligatory platform shoes and a clothing store full of tie dye, tattoo chokers, mood rings and polaroid cameras. If anyone wants to donate like £10 million to make that a reality hmu!!
 Pics taken by our imaginary friend. I am wearing Undeground creepers, Primark socks, AA skirt, vintae bra top, Primark shirt (dnt judge), homemade rucksack and a leather jacket H&M sent to me.
 We were dressed cohesively which was exciting and how cute is her backpack/hat/existence????
 Sinead took some film pictures which I can't wait to see.
 ~architecture porn~
 My camera is still being weird about focusing but this is too cute not to post.
 We talked a lot about kpop, the internet, college, plants and movies and as always it is amazing to meet someone with similar interests which is why I love the internet.
 Tumblr user in her natural habitat.
 It has all given me an even bigger level of appreciation for plants and how diverse and smart they are.
 Ultimate cutie.
 The hot houses were wonderful and the heat was pretty welcome as it was quite cold.
 The photobombing mom makes this tbh.
 This was one of our favourite flowers (I think it's a hibiscus????) because of the pastel barbie pink.
 Cohesive colours.
 SoOoO much green.
 Sinead's adorable Doc Martens.
 Ultimate pastel hair princess.
 Me being awkward with hair in need of re-dying.
 The waterlily house was magical and we were transfixed.
 The people in the background give some kind of sense of just how enormous the lily pads were and the temptation to jump on one was strong.
 Sinead's adorable camera.
 We also met some cute geese, ducklings and this peacock which looked a little bit out of place.
Sinead on the subway. After Kew we went to Oxford Street and tentatively explored American Apparel before getting the train home. Thank u Sinead for being so lovely and I hope we can meet soon!!
