today's outfit; the fog outside my flat last night; the marina yesterday morning at 8am

Bit of a filler post today! I was going to debut my new replacement feature for Wednesdays, but I just haven't had the time to prepare or write it, never mind arrange the photos and graphics that I wanted to go along with it. I've had a fever since yesterday, but I'm just working through it aha, I don't have time to nap in the day right now! Had Uni until 1pm as well which didn't help ): I managed a surprising amount of work today though, added lots to my Styling project and notebook, reworked my copy for an online feature, caught up with emails and wrote a book review for my feature portfolio, all motivated by the lovely Georgie who is sending me some Mulberry stickers! <3

Tomorrow I'm off to London with my University to visit the Barbican Art Gallery and get a bit of culture in our lives! For a course that incorporates fashion and culture, most of the people on my course complain a surprising amount about "having" to write culture essays and go to exhibitions! I'm actually looking forward to it, and having the chance to get out of Southampton for a bit, the exhibition we're seeing is Future Beauty: 30 Years in Fashion, and is centred around Japanese fashion, which I've always been interested in!

I'm also heading home straight from the exhibition for Chinese New Year! So excited to finally see my Mum and family again, it's already been a month since I've seen them, and hopefully we're going to get lunch while we're in London too. I'm don't think I'll be taking my laptop back with me, there's not really any point in me taking it to be honest, but knowing me as a huge Internet addict, I'll be sat blogging tomorrow night! I'll still be on Tumblr and Twitter, but probably won't be back to normal posting until next Monday, I think I'll enjoy a short hiatus from Blogger! (:
