Whoooooops, I realise my last post was two months ago! （◎ー◎；） I have been SO BUSY! Well, at least I have the “it was summer”-excuse. And I think it’s a valid excuse because my summer was really good!
My summer was so adventurous and filled with fun people and fun memories [and many fun photos that I really want to share!!] that I am really sad it is over! But on the other hand I am also reaaaaally excited about the academic year starting again. I am starting my third [and final] year at the University of Leeds. I’m taking lots of interesting modules and also have to write a dissertation. SCARY!!!
But, it’ll be fine, I hope. I have a lot of positive energy right now and some good intentions that I hope will become habits. On my list of things-I-would-like-to-keep-up is obviously this blog! And I thought instead of making really big posts once every month that drag me down, I should probably make shorter ones and update a bit more often. So, here I am, let’s just go for it!
Angelic Pretty PARTY DOLL SKIRT
So, catching up from April. I received an AP buy, a very simple skirt in my favourite colour, mintgreen. It is called Party Doll and it has a beautiful velveteen bow that sort of makes it look like a present! The fabric and tulle is so soft and lovely! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
Someone I follow on Tumblr was offering it for a very low price and it was just sooo perfect! My favourite colour, a cute skirt for casual wear, my favourite brand, how could I say no!?!? So I said yes, of course!! Buying via someplace that isn’t an ‘established’ way was a bit worrying to me, but she did have feedback and it was in the EU and she was very friendly in her messages – so I paid and hoped for the best. Luckily everything went well! Of course it was secondhand and there are a few flaws, but honestly, I don’t even care. This quickly grew to be one of my favourite things to wear in spring and summer, hahaha.
THE SMOOTHIE COMPANY
On a grey april day I went for lunch at the Smoothie Company. This is a cute little place really close to campus that is a bit further hidden than the other cafés right opposite the Parkinson building. However, if you are in Leeds and craving a smoothie, you definitely need to check this place out!
Reason number one: The smoothies are yummy!! Fresh fruit and all sorts of options you might want! [I had something super awesome with cinnamon! yummmm]
Reason number two: They also do food, it’s very reasonably priced, actually pretty cheap compared to other places in the neighbourhood, and it’s taaaasty! [A bagel with peanut butter and banana pictured here, super yummy. I have recently tasted their soup and it’s awesome soup! – that’s like “awesome sauce”, but with soup, just sayin’.]
They will toast bagels and sandwiches for you at no extra cost. [I am looking at you, Bakery 164…]
You can also choose to sit outside. The staff is super friendly, and they have good ethics regarding fresh products using local ingredients. Yay!
And it’s really super duper super super super close to campus!
Well, that was my random post for today, hope to catch up some more soon! o (◡‿◡✿)
