Hello, hello, hello!
Mid-March, an act of God occurred and my parents to let me return to the UK for a short while. Sadly, my time here is up and in a matter of days, I am hopping back on a plane to Seattle. I can’t complain too much though – I mean, just think of all the SkyMiles I am going to earn.
For the benefit of my 2 readers and my nosey friends, I feel as though I owe a brief explanation for my lack of blogging. For many weeks, this blog has been the last thing on my mind because, well, in short: My life is a mess. I don’t ever want to share personal details here but all I want to say is it’s no big deal, it’s just that everything is very ‘up in the air’ at the moment.
Moving on, I spent the weekend in London with my sister. Despite having an insanely frustrating cold, I had a wonderful time. (Side note: I am very sick while writing so if any of this reads badly, I neglect responsibility.) I even managed to convince her to be my personal, unpaid photographer. Anastasia, if you’re reading this, I can’t promise you fame or fortune but I can drop your Instagram on my blog with the guarantee that at least one of my two readers will click on it: @starzibear.
I am really excited to share these photos with you all as they are the first set that I used Lightroom to edit. As far as editing Instagrams go, I have tried pretty much everything. I could talk endlessly about what apps I use etc. but I am going to stop myself because this post would never end.
Yellow, yellow, yellow!
Something came over me in February and I decided to buy a lot of yellow clothes. For some reason, I had never attempted to wear yellow before but now I can’t remember life without it. When I ordered this dress, I had low expectations of the quality but I was pleasantly surprised. I know spending £50+ on a day dress is painful. Especially, if you live in the UK and take into account how rarely you’ll be able to wear it. I say, dress for the weather you deserve.
Having said that, after we took these photos, I immediately changed.
