This is probably my favourite outfit combination and photo shoot in a looong time. Even though the weather has yet to make its mind up (apparently it’s meant to snow again?) spring is slowly starting to appear with the odd sunny day and some colour returning to the world outside. Despite the shock of losing an hour – not ideal when you’re panicking about a deadline – clocks going forward have officially marked later sunsets which gets me so ready for summer nights, no matter how far off they may be.
If you couldn’t already tell, I have developed a slight obsession with the colour pink. I’m not quite sure where it stemmed from, but it has taken over my bedroom: pink duvet, candles, throw, cushions… and now it’s gradually working its way into my wardrobe.
In honour of International Women’s Day, last week I was lucky enough to be invited to an incredible event at Surrey Business School to celebrate the successful careers of five very unique and individual women. Personally, I am an advocate of the idea that both amazing women and men should be commemorated every day, but sometimes it’s necessary to have that reminder of how special we really are, and this was the ideal event to do so.
I think I’m speaking on behalf of the whole UK when I say spring has never been more needed. If you’re anything like me, you’ll agree that snow is only exciting over the festive season or if you’re still in school and actually benefit from a snow day! Other than that it’s just pretty annoying, bitterly cold and disruptive to any kind of productivity (I realise I sound super boring and harsh, but it really isn’t my idea of fun). It’s pretty to observe when you’re curled up by a window swamped in jumpers reading a good book, but not so fun when you have things to do and places to go. Plus, in true Brit style, we can’t seem to cope with sub-zero temperatures despite being such a developed country, and so boiler problems take priority over uni work and we risk ending up head over heels on the non-gritted pavement during an expedition into town to stock up on essentials (wine).
