Perfect Waste of Time

Dress, Tee & Rings - Primark // Sneakers - Nike // Bag - Topshop //  Sunglasses - Warehouse // Watch - Olivia Burton 

This dress is an oldie but a goodie, and one I rarely wear. But my pale legs have to see the Sun a couple of times a year and today seemed like the perfect day. Martha and I wasted some time today by walking through the park near our flat. Because my first year of university has officially finished, I have all the time in the world to while away! I'm so excited to put more time into this blog again. 

It's only starting to hit me that the year is over because people have started moving out. Campus is starting to feel like a ghost town and the park that was packed with students last week is now empty. Last Friday we attended the University Ball (in my next post I'll show you my outfit!). There were fairground rides galore and my flatmates and I spent the night riding the carousel and watching Ella Eyre and Annie Mac perform (it wouldn't be right if Leeds didn't throw some house music in there, right?) Needless to say, I've been listening to Annie Mac's mixes ever since. We ended the night, and first year as a whole, with sore feet and high spirits. 

These past ten months have thrown me out of my comfort zone and thrown so many beautiful people into my life. My year as a Fresher has given me so much more than I had ever expected; I have a new city to call home and a new set of people to call my family. I can't wait for second year to begin already, although I know it will be entirely different. Of course, you'll be hearing all about it!

It's time for me to sign off before I get too sentimental, though. It's just gone midnight and a song has just come on shuffle that always brings a tear to my eye. If you're not feeling in too fragile a state go and listen to My Sad Captains by Elbow. They're one of my favourite bands and the meaning of this song is beautiful and sad at the same time, and so relevant to my life at the moment. x
