Fall Appreciation Post (Part 2)

This is the second batch of my fall photos…I love the color of the leaves during fall! This was such a depressingly short period though. I can already see the leaves dropping and soon it’ll be just dark and cold with no colors anywhere. Nope, not a big fan of winter – although I adore Christmas.

Trip to England Part 2

After the London part of my study trip we headed to Stratford where we ended up seeing four different plays (all of them amazing). There I also got to see the fabulous David Tennant – drooool – I think I got way over excited but really — can you blame me?

It was strange to be in a town where the stores close already around 4 pm. After the first few days we had explored the whole town and didn’t have much else to do except to eat dinner at a pub (which was closer to our student budget than any proper restaurant) and wait for the theater performance to start. It was a lovely trip nonetheless, and we even managed to snap pictures with a few actors on our last evening there.

Our last day in England was spent at the Warwick castle – and getting scared in a tower (or more specifically, getting scared while walking the stairs inside one of the towers)…This was because of a fire alarm and an announcement to empty the premises immediately. Luckily we were allowed back inside soon enough and the trip wasn’t a total bust.

And now I can start saving up for my next trip!

Trip to England Part 1

I recently went to England for a study trip with a group from my university and I thought I’d share some memories from the first part of the trip which took place in London. After the three days that we spent in London we took a bus to Stratford and did a Shakespeare and theater -course while living in a cute little b&b. I’ll make a post about that later as well.

In London we had a relatively free schedule, which enabled me to meet my friend and hit the Harry Potter studios…and it was brilliant! I loved every bit of it – all the props, sets, and costumes looked fabulous. I think my favorite part was seeing Luna’s costumes and Umbridge’s office.
In addition to Harry Potter studios I managed to do some shopping, a trip to a museum, and see three Shakespeare plays. The plays were amazing, especially Macbeth and Midsummer night’s dream, which we saw at the Globe theater. I don’t think I’ve ever understood or appreciated Shakespeare so well.

I realized during these days how much I had missed the busy streets, the friendly people and, of course, the drool-worthy accent since my last trip to London.

All in all, the first part of the trip was —-

Fall Appreciation Post

I recently did a photography session with my friend Anna because it was such a nice fall weather. Don’t you just love it when the leaves turn red and yellow and the air is crisp and cool? I certainly do – fall is my favorite season! I always look forward to a new school year, new challenges, mulled wine, Christmas shopping, and pumpkin spice lattes.

Project Self-Expression: New Blog!

Hiiii and welcome to my brand new lifestyle blog! I’m starting this blog as a part of my self-expression project! I’m completely nervous about posting my thoughts and opinions for all of you to see but hey, that’s just part of being an introvert…I’m trying to get over it!

I’ve always wanted to write a blog and now I’ve finally done something about it. As you might notice as time goes by, sometimes I’m a bit slow to start something new – or then I might start something but forget about it in the next minute – but I’m hoping this’ll keep me active and interested for years to come.

I love fashion, art, books, and design and I’m gonna try to incorporate all of those in this blog. I tend to take all the photos on this blog myself unless otherwise mentioned. Hopefully I’ll also be able to showcase my illustrations and other projects to you later on!

This little Polyvore set was basically just me brainstorming ideas for a party outfit for the coming Thursday when my uni subject organization is having a Christmas party (I revised an old set) . I can’t wait to see all my friends and go out!
