So it seems like bleedin’ ages since I last posted on here! 2 weeks is a long time in the fashion blogosphere! So first of all, my life is all up in the air right now; I’m heading off to uni in a couple of weeks’ time and I’ve been busy sorting everything out for that, sorting accommodation, fees, things I need to buy, and enrolment blah blah blah etc etc etc.
So while all of that has been happening (on top of working 40 hours a week) my MacBook Pro (which is only 4 months old, might I add) decided to end it’s life on me. My laptop, in terms, committed technological suicide and I will now be without my beloved MacBook for *at least* a week while Apple and their ‘Genius’ *cough* team figure out what’s wrong with it.
So all in all it’s been a crazy couple of weeks and the next couple of weeks are looking just as cray so I apologise for my imminent lack of posting! I will be back into the swing of things (hopefully) when I get my laptop back next week!
I will hopefully be doing a blog post on my starting uni; what I’m taking, the course I’m doing, my personal thoughts etc. in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned!
I’m always one to have a book on the go, all does not sit well with me if I do not have a book to read. I will read ANYTHING. Obviously I have my favourite and least favourite genres, most of the time I like reading into people that I admire or who inspire me in some way. I’m currently reading Chanel: An Intimate Life by Lisa Chaney about Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, and it’s brilliant. Really well researched and with plenty of depth; the book is a must read for anyone interested in fashion.
It goes through Chanel’s life story, from her dire upbringing, to her love affairs and her eventual mega-success and the accompanying photographs provide a visual insight into Gabrielle Chanel’s personal life.
I would thoroughly recommend it, I haven’t yet finished it, but really wanted to mention it on my blog as it’s definitely a book that I’m so so glad I bought!
I bought mine from Harrods, but you can buy it from Amazon by clicking here.
So this is officially my 150th post here on my blog! When I first started my blog 18 months ago, I struggled with finding inspiration for posts, finding the time to write inbetween schoolwork, exams etc. But since having left school, taking a gap year and re-finding myself, I’ve found that my blog has come into its own too! I’ve really enjoyed writing on my blog for the past year and I can;t wait to see what the next 150 blog posts bring!
Thank you for your kind comments both on here, on my twitter and my instagram! You don’t realise how much it is appreciated and how much time it takes to blog when having a full-time job!
