The Superiority Of Coffee, Contentment & Passion

Evening all...

Whilst nursing my piping mug of inexpensive instant coffee, I sit here in a state of pure contentment. The harsh touch of the cold evening air seems irrelevant as I type to those of you who take the time to read my posts. And I thank you for that. The sense of contentment I feel is uncontrollable. The kind that completely consumes you, so much so that before you reach to check the time, it's been two hours and you've been sat in the same position, typing your heart out onto the digital page and pressing delete regularly in the fear of expressing too much. Recently, I've experienced a new beginning, a whirling rollercoaster ride of highs and lows; stresses and excitements; tiredness I've accepted as a part of me now, but also feeling the most alive possible. Truth be told, I am loving my newest chapter, and I've been trying awfully hard to embrace each day as it comes, and to make the most of every opportunity that comes my way. Granted, sometimes it doesn't work out the way you hoped. Sometimes you don't wake up to your 9am alarm and instead you recharge for a couple more hours and get a little less housework done than you hoped. Sometimes you can think of nothing worse than to get out of bed and stumble your way to the lecture theatre. Equally, sometimes you never want the day to end, because you can't quite get enough of the moment, and no matter what you do, time surpasses you and goes by faster than you thought possible. But I am enjoying my adventure, no matter how much it may wear me out to the extent I rely on coffee for a wake up call each morning. What I have most recently discovered, is that every day is a new beginning. A new start to achieve your dreams and goals. Every day is a chance for you to do whatever it is you've been planning. An opportunity to recreate the feeling's of yesterday.

The outfit displayed above is for sure a casual one. I've been wearing these items a lot in the last few weeks where the weather has turned much colder, and wrapping up in blankets of jumpers and scarves has become necessary. I would say this is a very day-to-day outfit, something I've been wearing both at home and on uni days. Its primarily a practical, comfort-based outfit choice, it keeps me warm and cosy when out and about. Its great for keeping warm outdoors but depending on how warm it is inside, I can also accommodate to that by removing/adding layers as I please, which has been a real life-saver because lecture theatres are unpredictable when it comes down to humidity.

I have had this bomber jacket about a year now, and I still think its the coolest jacket I own. I especially love the neon orange lining because it adds a little pazazz and makes it a bit different from other bomber jackets - its also vintage which gives this little number a little personality.

My trusty round metal framed vintage sunglasses by Hindsight Vintage are also never far from my side. I adore these shades so much and I try to get as much wear out of them as possible. As you may or may not know, I'm a keen sunglasses wearer, almost a sunglasses enthusiast if you will. So the slightest glint of sunlight and I am ready to go. On a side-note, I would highly recommend Hindsight Vintage for their sunglasses because the fit is perfect and they do some extraordinary styles of shades - I have my eye on a few of their range, and I will definitely be purchasing other pairs from them in the future.

In correlation with the title of this blog post, I think I ought to expand. So coffee. Its a real essential at the moment, racing ahead of a classic English cuppa, and as deadlines as drawing closer, I'm spending a lot more time tapping away at my laptop keyboard and a lot less time keeping watch of my sleeping pattern. The joys of university - and its only my first year - eek. So, in a nutshell, coffee is my saviour, the life and soul of my educational party and it really does lend itself in my direction multiple times daily.

Contentment. I feel like I'm always blabbering on about contentment, so I'll keep it short. I just feel content, truly content. Despite the fact I am buried in workload and the pressure of handing in my first assignments is intense, I still feel incredibly at peace with the world.

Lastly, passion. Now I am quite gutted I was not able to find a relevant word beginning with a C that would give my blog post title a fancy ring to it, and I am kicking myself for it, but I deemed passion as an appropriate discussion point. I feel as though people do not often feel passionate about aspects of their life, maybe they take them for granted or just accept them as part of their daily life. But I think it is incredible when you feel passionate about something or someone. It's like nothing can knock you off this little cloud of excitement and uncontrollable emotion. I know for sure that when I feel passionate about something, I am reluctant to let anything to get in the way, I just want to enjoy the feeling and to let it guide me in whichever direction feels right. Passion is crazy. Its overpowering. Its almost fire-like. Nonetheless, I feel passionate about a small handful of things at the moment, and personally, I feel on top of the world. A sense of appreciation comes out of passion I think, because now I feel strongly for things, I appreciate them more and more every day. 

Anyway, I hope this was an enjoyable read, and I hope in my dreary, sleepy state that I am making at least the slightest bit of sense. Lol. See you all soon!

The internet is such a strange world, and it is in fact its own world - so far from reality yet so close, it redefines society conceptually to be honest. The internet can bring such wonderful things into the world: the announcement of a new baby, an endless supply of fashion inspiration, the top news at the fastest rate, and so many amazing memories and conversations can be shared between the beautiful people on this planet. The internet is an extraordinary place, and even more so as someone who has grown up in this time of technology. I bloody love the internet and all it brings to the world, I honestly think the internet is such a great platform for humanity to connect, share and create.
However, I have been wondering my mind recently, quite intently, and have found myself shying away from the internet, and social media platforms. Despite the fact I have no huge following…

| Going Back To Basics | 10/10/17 |

Gooood morning, and welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to share with you another post from my first fashion photo shoot. This outfit, I feel, is perfect for this transitional period, and is also verging on the smart side of fashion (for me anyway, lol). I really enjoyed piecing together this outfit, and trying to experiment with my personal style. As you all undoubtedly know, I often opt for the comfier garments and that aspect of my style definitely is portrayed through most of my blog posts. But equally, trying something new is exhilarating, particularly with Autumn homing into view so I want to diversify my wardrobe. I am loving the tailored look, and am growing fonder of fitted tops that enhance my body a lot more than a baggy tshirt or oversized jacket would.

| The Truth About Student Life | 20/02/18 |

M O R N I N G 

I almost feel like I've forgotten how to write a blog post, so the format of this post might be a bit 'up in the air'. Therefore, before I delve into things, here's a quick disclaimer... On the 26th December, I uploaded a blog post surrounding the topic of social media, and the influence I feel it has on the mental health of its users. Since then, I have been absent from this blog, and largely absent from social media in general, because I feel as though I've had nothing worth saying recently. I would much rather only upload when I am bringing a little something useful to the internet that even if only one person found it interesting, it would at least have a purpose.
 This leads swiftly on to the subject of this post. Student life, and the truth about how it feels to experience daily life as a young adult, studying at University. I promise to not sugar coat the finer details, and to accurately portray the common notions of being a student. Shall we…
