Far Away From Toil And Care


I was so chilly when I just did these pictures haha! I think through the progression of the pictures you can see that my nose is getting slowly redder and redder, I’m like Rudolph!! All the snow is finally starting to melt, it’s turning into ice in so many places though and it’s actually really dangerous. But I can see all the water from the icicles hanging off the building dripping past the window and I keep thinking it’s raining! Although it’s far too cold for that.

 Scarf: Birthday present
Pink Cardigan: TK Maxx
Yellow Long Sleeve Top: Calvin Klein
Floral and Lace Skirt: Zara via eBay
White Tights: (my sister’s) New Look
Brown Boots: Barratts

I really like the look of this skirt, but the problem is that without anything covering the waistband of it, it poofs out a lot on my hips. It’s originally from Zara, but I got it on eBay for £3 (yay!) with tags and all! Again with the cardigan, I’m sorry! It’s so snuggly and warm though!! And I paired the white tights with this outfit just because I think they have a sort of wintry feel, maybe because they’re the same colour as snow or something?? I also think they have a summeryness about them when I wear them in summer though haha!

There are more student marches in Newcastle today against the rise in fees, I think that’s why I had more problems with the buses today, along with the snow (but I won’t bore you with more stories, my family have all started groaning as soon as I mention the word bus!!). I’m not really sure what my opinion is on the rise in fees for university fees, I’m glad it won’t directly affect me, but I’m a bit worried in case it will affect the year I want to do a PGCE in Classics, I’m just going to have to wait and see what the outcome of the vote is anyway. I haven’t been involved in any of the marches, but I’ve seen them happening and been handed fliers. Mostly to me the marches are just annoying because they’ve made me late for uni because of the buses, but I can of course see their point. My sister actually got involved in a protest in her college, but this one sounded a lot more peaceful than the marches: they all ran outside at 10.30am yesterday, and all the students (must be hundreds of them!!) held hands around the whole college! That’s quite something to be a part of.
