Three Month Hiatus

Well, I have awakened from a three month slumber. But a LOT has changed during that time. I have officially been accepted as a PhD student for next year, finished two fatty essays, been a student advocate during a lot of department-related drama, traveled to Wales, had a nasty case of tonsillitis, planned a massive 3 week trip to the US in July/August, signed a lease for a flat next year, started digging into the research abyss that is MA dissertation, and started dating a boy who happens to be just as weird as me.

So, naturally, I’ve been a little busy. And blogging, unfortunately, has taken a bit of a back seat. But I’m back, hopefully to be a bit more regular and consistent. Grad school takes a lot out of my internet/blogging energies but I’ll try and make more of an effort to keep the anonymous internets updated with my life details. And before I go, here’s some beats that I’ve been listening to lately:


Winter in York


It’s been consistently snowing in York for the past few days. There’s something absolutely pure, silent, and magical about having familiar buildings covered with a fresh and fluffy layer of snow. York, as always, is gorgeous in any season. It’s been so great to walk to seminars and make my way through a winter wonderland.

Here are some snaps I’ve captured on my afternoon walks!




Bridesmaid Swag

So, I’ve got some fun news to share! I’m making an extra special trip to Los Angeles in August to be a bridesmaid for my friend Mandy’s wedding! It’s going to be an amazing celebration and I am honored to be taking part in her special day!
She’s decided to let her ladies choose their own dress style in a specific color, mint green. Ever since she told me, I’ve been scouting the internet and looking for the perfect dress. Here are a couple that I’ve had my eye on. I’m looking for something romantic, breezy, but still a style I can wear long after the bride & groom have made their getaway for the honeymoon.
Any thoughts? Have a favorite dress? What look do you love to rock at weddings?
