Yes I am back... and I promise this time I am back for good!
You'll have noticed that I've been taking a break from blogging these past few months. I guess I just wanted to concentrate on the remainder of my studies, and also with the changes going on at Chictopia, I just wasn't feeling up to blogging for awhile.
But now I am definitely ready to start blogging again! I have been meaning to get back into it for more than a few weeks now, but I tend to procrastinate, and also, a lot of things have been happening these past few months. The most major thing was that I passed all my uni subjects, which meant that I finally finished my Bachelor of Arts degree (with majors in Art History and Cultural Studies) which has been dragging on for quite a few years now! I even had my formal graduation on Monday, which was fun in parts but not so fun in others... (a separate post about that to come.)
So now I am currently looking for full time work, as I want to take time off from studying (after studying for 17 years in a row!). I've been applying for lots of things but no luck yet. I do want to continue studying at some point in the future, though I don't know what yet. I do miss seeing my friends at uni and will miss the atmosphere though.
Meanwhile... my closet has been expanding and is now overflowing into my tiny bedroom. Even though I've been buying new things, I've also been going through a bit of a style drought where I'm not really feeling very inspired or fashionable, which is also why I haven't taken any outfit pics in awhile. I am currently trying to cull my wardrobe and refine my style.
As I mentioned, I haven't taken any outfit pics recently, and have a lot of older outfits which you guys haven't seen yet, I'll still be uploading those so it might be awhile until you see some really recent shots!
Just to leave you with some oldish pics- awhile ago, my friends and I decided to dress up and have a picnic at Hanging Rock. Yes, the real Hanging Rock which was the basis of the novel Picnic at Hanging Rock, written by Joan Lindsay and also the film adaption from 1975. We decided to dress in our best 1900s inspired garb and cavort around the rock formations for a few hours- and got some pretty cool photos from it!
these were taken by my bestie using the iPhone app Instagram (i'm sure she won't mind me putting them up on here cos they turned out great!)
Photo of me up near the summit. Ironically, even though I brought my DSLR to take photos, this quick shot turned out to be one of the best photos of the day as the wind caught my skirt perfectly and the vintage effect is awesome!
Lovely picnic on the grass. So much delectable food!! My feet look odd from the angle in the photo though!
Schweppes Agrum + plastic wine glasses + parasol = great photo!
Anyway, thank you for reading!! I know my long absence will have cost me some readers, which is why this time round I'm going to dedicate myself to this blog and update regularly. Also thank you to any new followers who started reading even with the lack of posts recently!
You'll hear from me again very shortly... Hope to hear from you soon!
