sunday portrait week 70



001. Seriously how nice is the weather in the UK at the moment? Its so lovely to be able to sit outside and just chill with a glass of Pimms in the sun! Today I've been catching up on blogs as well as doing some university work. Actually had some good ideas for a project, I think being outside is inspiring! I also went shopping with my mother, who seems to be obsessed with buying clothes (where do I get it from?) since she lost all her weight on Weight Watchers!

002. I handed in my resignation to New Look on Saturday, I don't really want to leave if I'm being honest but I want to get university done with (only a month left! AAGHH!) and then travel over the summer before moving to a different city before the autumn. It just sort of made sense to leave now to focus on other things. I'm really bummed as I'll miss everyone I work with & totally miss the discount! I never did the Gap Yah thing before I went to uni, so thats why I want to go travelling now, Im thinking going around europe as I've not been to many places. However I'd love to go back to New Zealand/Australia again. Decisions!

003. Updated the shop with a lucky dip random mix of rings. Its £10 for 5 of them, there are a limited amount so if you want to bag a bargain lucky dip of rings be quick!

004. Follow: Juliett, Jaymie & Sally

  20. It sucks that you've quit, I think my dream job would be at either New Look or Topshop. But, you gotta do what you gotta do!
    If you go traveling, would you go by yourself? Or with people? It would be amazing, but I'll miss your outfit posts!
    Where do you want to move to?

  21. I just ordered a few rings! can't wait to wear them!!! xxx S.

  33. Your sunday portraits get prettier every week! You look so gorgeous in this.
    I handed in my notice at a place I'd been working at for three years a few weeks ago - it's such a weird feeling! Sounds like you're leaving at the right time though!

    You should definitely come to New Zealand again - I would love the chance to meet you!

    ReplyDelete

  35. That gap yah video is hilarious! Most people I met (actually on my gap year haha) when I was in the UK had never heard of a 'gap year' . It much be such a relief in a way to see that your heading in a new direction! Come to Australia!

  41. the weather has been ridiculously nice here! I've been doing my college work out doors too. It feels like I'm not actually doing too much work if you get me cause i'm doing it in the sun and outside! Good luck with everything, Travelling sounds amazing! xox

  42. come to australia! the gold coast is just a constant, massive party x

  43. Decisions are so hard to make! I'm finishing school right now (it's actually my last week of school) and I cannot decide, whether I want to take a gap year, do some work and more important travel or if I want to start with university right away. Do you think it's a good idea to take a gap year, do you regret you hadn't taken one?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm so mad at you for making that ring sale while i'm still on a shopping ban *sobs and weaps* LOL. Would have loved 'em
    So sad making a break from Uni life right? Gosh I can't believe its almost over...and yer, I'm doing the Gap Yahh thing after too. Need a break from the books

  48. I'm still dying over Gap Yah! So many people like that in my uni accommodation & 3 in my flat! Tragic.

  49. Loving the vignette on the photo, what other processing did you do to it?

    Its a shame about having to leave your job, hopefully they'll take you back after your travels?

    Exciting about your gap year. I'm from New Zealand and I'm not gonna lie it's pretty awesome... I have always wanted to travel round Europe, is a big dream of mine. So maybe we could just swap places? Deal?
