Pink, Polka Dots and Photography

I'm mentioned before that I'm not really a bag girl. I have about three bags, and 9 times out of 10 you'll find me carrying my big, black, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink Mulberry Roxanne. It fits everything in it and goes with everything so I rarely swap around. However, when this beautiful pink Knomo bag arrived I was in love. It might just be the most beautiful bag I've ever owned. Plus it's perfect for work- I can even fit my Macbook and a notebook in it for meetings! I decided to pair it with my new pink heels (even though they don't quite match perfectly) that I bought to go with my birthday dress. They're a little bit high for work but I thought they were a great way to brighten up my favourite spotty dress.

I started my second photography course last night! I'm so excited because it definitely seems a step up from my last one. I'm going to start trying to spend two hours every Sunday working on my photography and practicing what I'm learning in class. I just don't spend enough time working on it- perfectly demonstrated in these photos which were taken in five minutes before work. I'm also considering taking a qualification in photography if I enjoy my next class. God there's just so much I want to do. Does that every stress you out? I started writing my 23 before 24 list the other day and I found it so exciting but so stressful at the same time. I mean realistically, can I really take more photography classes, take French classes, and start singing and dancing again? While also maintaining friendships, planning to move out in a year or so and progressing at work? Does anyone else get stressed out about this? I've done all these things in various parts of my life and I miss them. I miss dancing at uni, I miss singing in bands when I was 17 but I've always wanted to learn a language and I want to progress with photography. Maybe it's a one step at a time thing.
 
Well I'm off to do Jillian Michaels and have an early night. I'm off to see Frank Turner for the seventh time tomorrow, yay! I'm also going to see Matchbox 20 on Friday and I'm so excited. Partying like it's 1999 right?

Have a lovely evening!

  1. I admire your ambition and enthusiasm for life. I had the opposite problem when trying to write a list like that - I couldn't think of enough things I wanted to do! I'm naturally apathetic and lazy, I think! Much better to do things your way and grab life by the lapels - don't worry about juggling all the things you're enthusiastic about, embrace them! :-) x

  2. I am similar - full time job makes it so hard to fit in everything and I have loads of hobbies and interests. I end up focusing on one for a few months/year and then another. There aren't enough hours in the day!

  4. Love the dress! Do as much as you can/want to. I think it's better to have too much going on and then have to cut back. Rather than regretting not giving something a try . .

  5. I always have that feeling of wanting to do too much and it being impossible to fit it all into my life. I just try to do what I can and hope it's enough to be fulfilling!
    Anyway! I love this polka dot dress so much and I think the tall pink shoes are wonderful with it. I'm not a bag girl either and really enjoy your new one! The color is fantastic!
