Not long till Christmas now, guys! I hope you’re singing carols under your breathe and dusting off your Christmas jumpers because before you know it, BOOM. Santa’s come and gone, kind of like the year! It’s incredible to me to think that we’re closing in on the end of 2014. Usually I’m on holidays around this time, so I think the Uni schedule has messed with my mind a little.
Having said that, my parents sent Amy and I a package of gifts to open on the 25th, so that’s brought a bit of cheer! Other than that, I’ve enjoyed a couple of the loveliest Christmas dinners with some of the funniest, friendliest people I know here in Leeds. It’s really made me feel like I have a home away from home, and so I won’t lie; it seems I change my mind every time I post, but all I can think about is when I’ll be back. A small part of me really wishes that I was here for the whole academic year. Scratch that, a large part. I’ve adapted so well to this more independent life, which is something I just can’t have in Australia – guilty as charged, I live with my parents – because if I chose to move out then I wouldn’t be able to save enough to travel again. And without talking about things I probably definitely should not be mentioning, let’s just say I’ve got at least one good reason to stay.
Moving on, the outfit! Oversized t-shirts are something I can’t get enough of, they’re comfortable and some of the prints are super quirky! This awesome one is from Antwerp Mansion, a semi-ruin turned renovation-project just outside of Leeds that plays home to a number of talented musicians and artists. To try and capture those oh-so-creepy-but-cool Victorian vibes I went for all black trimmings, and a sneaky pair of midnight blue lace shorts.. *winks* unfortunately the shirt isn’t mine, so I will have to hand it back (maybe!) Haha.
Oh and before I leave you! I’d love to hear how you guys are celebrating Christmas, and what you do on the actual day – reading all the different traditions makes me smile! x
