Cosy Cartharsis.

Word Vomit...

This blog post was supposed to be about my love for vintage clothing but i'll be honest and admit my brain feels a little fried this Sunday morning, and the thought of having to think and type intelligently is giving me a migraine. Instead i'm going to just type and I apologise for the word vomit in advance but sometimes a girl's gotta just type right? (see what i did thurr hehe). This week has been figuring out and finalising the teeny details on floor plans in Revit, constant scribbling in my sketchbook, mild stress, crying with laughter over whatsapp video calls with friends, eating hella dairy knowing full well i'm lactose intolerant and subsequently dry sobbing over the cramps and uh other side effects (TMI - soz), and doing this face to quite a few things. I've got about 2.5 months left of postgrad and all I can say is HALLELUJAH, THANK GOD! I have never wanted to finish something so much in my life, I have nothing left to give y'all (slightly overdramatic) but i-am-exhausted and getting irritated at seeing my own work aha! Another thing that has been on my mind is the struggle that i'm finding in writing blog posts nowadays. Give me the works of Bachelard to write an essay on and I could probably write a fairly compelling piece, but being able to write about myself in clothes, i simply don't know how to anymore, i'm not sure if it's because my outfits are based around comfort, practicality, longevity and things i can wear cross legged in studio, or that i'm just not that into fashion anymore? (probably the latter given the cosy outfit I'm wearing in this - deff not on trend heh!) The joys of being a broke student eh.

The Barbican Conservatory & An Ode to Exploration.

A Green Getaway.

Whilst the idea of a bikini clad, coconut wielding me on holiday somewhere warm, digging my toes in the sand and splashing about in azure waters is something that i dream of on an almost daily basis, it's not something my bank balance will allow for unfortunately *sobs in exhibition and printing money*. What I like to do, (usually with my sister in tow) is find places somewhat locally that i've yet to explore, it could range from a new coffee shop to a museum i've yet to visit. Over summer we did a lot of these 'mini trips' and it made us really fall in love with London again. I'd been seeing a lot of images from The Barbican Conservatory floating around social media and I actually hadn't a clue that The Barbican even had a conservatory but after seeing how beautiful the staircases and plants were, i knew i had to see for myself and scratch that botanical itch.
The conservatory itself is absolutely idyllic if I may say so myself, a quick walk from Barbican station and you're transported to an exotic oasis in London filled with over 2000 species of plants and trees. The second I stepped into the conservatory i felt a twinge of excitement in my chest like i'd come across a pot of gold at the end of a very green and lush rainbow. There's something about exploring places you've never been to that just makes ones heart sing and puts a spring in your step, particularly when you discover places with a loved one. I'm planning on putting on my travelling hat and hoping to explore Oxford, The Lake District, Chester and maybe even York after easter.
