Wilderness Wanders

The other day whilst at University, me and Sheri decided to throw caution to the wind and find somewhere nice to finally take some outfit photo's. We're pretty lucky with our campus, with quite a significant part of it being a bit of a wilderness, so what better place to explore as a little break from dissertation work. Although, we did stumble upon a very unusual sculpture that reminded me of something from Harry Potter, let's just say i'll be avoiding that area after dark! If only the bitter cold wind had decided to rest too (which explains my messy hair and grimaces!) I've been lax (just a bit!) with blogging recently, what with dissertation work, essays, visiting home, and being disinterested in my blog. I'm constantly comparing it, and myself, to others, and I no longer want to feel down in the dumps with it! So, after a little blog makeover, thanks to Sheri, and attempts to improve my confidence blog-wise, I am giving myself a kick up the bottom and getting back into the swing of things. So hello *waves*. 

Right, back to work. I'm sat writing this in the library, whilst attempting to force my eyes to stay open after a pretty miserable couple of hours. But it's just one of those days. After spending a good few weeks hoping and crossing all my fingers to hear some good news regarding something that I so badly wanted, I was left feeling pretty disheartened today. Initially feeling a little disappointed and angry with myself, i've realised that it just wasn't meant to be, or maybe just not yet, and that there are plenty more jobs in the sea, right? 

Oh, P.S. I've started selling some clothes on my blog, (just up there ^^^ at the top) where it says 'SHOP'. I've got a lot of peter pan collars, polka dots, and prints to sell, so you know what to do, ha! 
     
Love, Charlestown xoxo

  3. I agree with Julia - the collar on top of the sweater is so lovely! I actually thought it was part of the sweater and nearly had a heart attack because of how great it looks!

  6. love the fur collar on your coat! and don't feel so disheartened about the job, i'm not sure if it was full time or what, but would you really have been able to take that on at the moment on top of all your uni work? unfortunately it's not the right timing at the moment but who knows what will happen in the future or where you'll end up? and i'm sure if you're meant to work there and want it badly enough then one day you will. :)

  17. I know how it feels to compare yourself to other bloggers and feel very much lacking! There are so many talented bloggers out there, I have tried to stop measuring myself against other people - it's a flawed system as we're all different no matter how similar we appear :-)

    Really like this look!

  19. I love these pictures! You always dress so impeccable, I can never fault it. I love your boots too, I've been looking for some like that.

    I do that with comparing, I want to spruce mine up a tad, it's putting in the effort though, I need to get my thinking cap on. Yours look great
