7th May



trying to get my hair out of my face


To combat some of my stress today, Erick and decided to go to lunch and spend some time together. It was nice to have a bit of a break from worrying about revision and my finals and meant I could stay in and do homework and go to bed early tonight. We are both hopeless at making decisions so he made me decide where to go for lunch. We had a great lunch at Amazing Grace, a gorgeous little cafe and visited the Maritime Museum down in Canal Park in Duluth and I asked him to take some pictures.



if I look super happy, it's because my boyfriend is a babe.

I admit, these photos turned out pretty well. The weather was reasonable but super-windy so I moaned that I'd probably hate all the pictures because the wind was getting my hair everywhere, but I actually really like them. I did not like Erick climbing on the rocks over the lake to take some of them. I don't care if he's really into rock climbing- I don't want him to do it in front of me!!




I'm having a pretty chilled weekend. My stress levels are still reasonably high and were raised slightly more today by trying to sort out the huge stress that is sorting out shipping stuff home. I can't wait to have everything packed and ready to ship so I can have that huge worry off my mind. I also can't wait until finals are over. So basically, by Friday, things should be a little less stressful in my life. I hope.

shoes- blowfish
socks- H&M


I feel as though I've progressed from wearing red all the time to wearing blue all the time. At the moment I'm drawn to anything blue. I also really, really love the combination of navy blue and brown, so my navy trench coat has been out a lot the last few weeks. It's my proper summer coat- warm but light enough for summer. I lost a button on the shoulder today though- damn! Oh and shush, but I'm wearing tights again on these pictures. I bashed my knee against the door last night so I have a big purple bruise on my left leg, and it was a bit chilly. I wore these shoes last night and got so many compliments! One guy shouted "crazy shoes!!". I took a lot of photos at one of the concerts I went to last night so I might upload the good ones tomorrow.



Back to the grind!!
Have a great weekend!!

  18. Great photos! I just found out my budget is tighter than expected so I may just wind up with some Blowfish shoes like these too instead of the Jeffrey Campbells I dream of. But if these get you so much attention I can't go wrong hah.
