daisybutter - UK Style Blog: photo diary

(1. Outfit from yesterday - Ever Ours peach deer blouse and Zara circle skirt;
2. Working on some magazine layouts and copy for University;
3. My lonely tripod set-up - "I'm er, working on a project for Uni...!".)

Tiny bit of a filler post while I'm off wreaking havoc and doing my weekly rounds on the trains! I'm probably still in London while you read this - hello scheduled post, you're ever so useful for when I have writing inspiration in ungodly hours of the day! Last night I finished the full draft of my dissertation and I'm so over the moon that the words are all there, now I just need to take a few days away from it before revisiting and reworking the chapters. My full acknowledgements go to Cadbury's for their ridiculously good chocolate, JK Rowling and Warner Bros. for Harry Potter film and narrative goodness and my housemates for coping with my breakdowns over endless coffees in the kitchen.

Today I've been in London for a few things with the ever lovely Elle, Lucy and Cigdem, but I'll reveal more about that in due course. I also popped over to Earl's Court again: my parents' business is exhibiting at the Ideal Home Show which I'm so proud of them for. I've been telling anyone and everyone, so now you know as well! If you have the time to or you've already made plans for Ideal Home, hunt my Mum down and tell her she's amazing!

What else have I been up to? I've been busy writing copy, designing templates and selecting paper stock for the magazine I'm producing with Lauren, I've been making up all manner of excuses when strangers - mostly adorable little old ladies - ask what I'm doing when I shoot outfit photos and part-time interning on top of all that. Third year, be gone! (I kid, I nearly had a mental breakdown on Wednesday when I totted up the amount of weeks I have left.)

Right well I'd better wrap this up then, I'm no good at prewritten blog posts and I'm sure if I've posted them before, you'll have known in an instance! I'm off to celebrate draft completion with Ron Weasley and friends. Lovelovelove.

    Congratulations on finishing your draft as well, you must feel so relieved to be almost there!
    I know how you feel on the Cadbury's and HP front, there's not much they both can't soothe between them, and I am eternally grateful to them both. Enjoy your weekend xo
