an (industrious) week in photos29.1.12
Bought a Keep Calm x Harry Potter inspired poster after spying it on Franky's blog! · The sky just before it hailed on my walk home from Uni · A vanilla spice latte and doughnut with the lovely Kat on Wednesday · Pretending it's 2004/MySpace at Chinese New Year! · Working by candlelight while it poured down with rain on Friday · InDesign at Uni · Chilli chicken in honey and soy sauce with 白菜 for Chinese New Year - cooked from scratch by yours truly ;) · Lunch with Lauren and Leanne at Coffee Nation · Pretending to be Elle Woods in my law seminar · Had an indulgent Dominoes with the girls after spending a LOT of time perusing a leaflet that fell through our door (standard student mail!) and deciding that ordering pizza online was better than cooking. By far. · Went for a walk to the Southampton Docks to walk off said pizza and ice-cream · Brushing up my Chinese reading skillz with some extra dissertation research.
Happy Sunday, Daisybutter campers! (Still struggling with a name for my readers, as you can see.) How are we all? I can hardly believe it's the last day of the week already, I haven't given myself much of a weekend but I've finally made a breakthrough with my dissertation, and I'm feeling much better about the prospect of final semester. Time to chill with coffee on tap (we bought a coffee machine for £5 so the theory is thereabouts), lovely blogs and some films.
This week has basically seen me dive headfirst into silly amounts of work, eat double lunches on more occasions than anyone should, catching up with the girls and mentally prepare myself for travelling to London and back twice in two days next week. Eep. I'm venturing outside of my bedroom den in a little bit to pick up some essentials and have a wander in the shops for something to wear tomorrow night to the #ZOMGbloggersbash. So excited to see Zoe and some of my other blogging friends, as well as meet many more - namely Abby, who I've failed at meeting for two years now. If you're heading over on tomorrow too, I'll be the short one...
By the way, I just wanted to say a huge 'thanks' to anybody who voted for Daisybutter in the Marie Claire Blog Awards last week: I was announced as one of the ten shortlisted blogs on Monday, and am heading to the awards in Mayfair (swish, I know!) on Tuesday morning. Never been so proud/excited/nervous about something before! I know there's a little bit of, er, controversy surrounding blog awards and magazine affiliation, but in my eyes, the chance to write for MarieClaire.co.uk is huge for a fashion journo undergrad, free or not. Just my two cents on the matter! My money is on Audrey/Frassy to win the fashion blog category anyway!
Oh and as a mini update of my 2012 goals... I failed one of my goals this weekend. Stayed up til about 3am, oops. How are you all getting along with your New Year's resolutions/2012 goals? ♥
