1st pic) I got my cork board from Ikea and the pictures are a selection of disposables/polaroid pictures, which I ordered from the app Printic (use my code 'CFBF16' to get £4 off your own!). The New York poster is from the shop Utility in Liverpool, the hand is from Urban Outfitters and the E mug is a present from a friend from Anthropologie.
2nd pic) The world map is also from Utility.
3rd pic) I got the string of stars from Tiger I think, the blanket is from Matalan ages ago, the duvet covers are from Ikea and the cushion cover is one I got from an indian market in Malaysia.

A conversation with a friend last night made me think about how different my 2015 could of been if I went to a different university. Before my gap year, I got accepted into Fashion Journalism at LCF and also Journalism at City. Sometimes I don't know whether I made the right choice because I genuinely have a ~passion~ for fashion (literally, I wanna die writing that. how cringey) and I miss London huge amounts. I love Liverpool and English, which is what I'm doing now, but I have a horribly irritating habit of romanticising 'what could of been' and nostalgia basically ruins my life.
In turn I think I've pushed away this blog not only because of choosing to not study fashion but because of the influx of professional bloggers and youtube stars and sponsored weirdness. I felt completely alienated from the blogging world which was much more casual a couple of years ago (this is not an insult or negative tone or shame on anyone btw, go bloggers!). But I completely lost an outlet to write about fashion and document cool places or cute clothes because of my self-imposed detachment. This coupled with the London/fashion uni sadness led to a sort of divorce with that ~passion for fashion~.
Fear not readers though (if anyone is still reading) I really want to make my blog back how it was kind of in the spring of 11' because I would genuinely come home from school and want to blog every night and take pictures all weekend and obsess over it. I have a lot of free time that I don't use constructively and seeing as NO-ONE IN LIVERPOOL will give me a job, I might as well fall back in love with my blog. So, this spring-cool chicks-tumblr-vision/moodboard is kind of a homage to that.
