Life Lately #2

'It's not you, it's me.'
 'I've just been so busy recently.'
'I need to focus on myself'

We've all heard these clichés a million times. It's been a few days since I last posted and I didn't want this little update to be full of excuses explaining my silence on the blogging front. Although, clichés are undoubtedly all rooted in truth. Let's just say I've been preoccupied with university planning, almost going through a break-up, salvaging my relationship by traveling down to Portsmouth, and now everything is fine and dandy. Plus, I met one of my absolute favourite beauty bloggers - LilyPebbles - in Oxford Circus on Thursday so it's not all been a massive downer. Despite having a mini blogging break this week, my brain never fully shuts off and I always seem to find inspiration when I'm not looking for it. Particularly during train journeys... don't ask me why. But during those quiet five days I've still been pretty good with my camera (which has fast become one of my most prized possessions) and have documented my everyday routine. Here are my highlights.
A last minute trip to Oxford Circus - my way of saying goodbye to my beloved city before going away to Uni.
What's a trip to Oxford Circus without a look in Topshop? Naturally, my quick look turned into shopping spree. But hey, I needed some Freshers outfits. I couldn't resist this LBD. It's a little sexier than I would normally go for but is so easy to throw on for a night out. I was pleasantly surprised by how great it looked with biker boots. Ignore the messy changing room - I'm a hardcore shopper.
Obligatory photos of my animals here. The hardest part about moving away is leaving them. Having a house full of animals isn't quite the same as living in Halls of Residence. I took these photos to look at when I'm feeling homesick.

 Django has an unhealthy love for cardboard - he couldn't resist a warm pizza box. And I couldn't resist taking hundreds of photos of him.
My parents got back from their New York escape today. Naturally, I gave my Mum a Sephora wishlist and she didn't disappoint. Even surprising me with my favourite Bath & Body Works candles in Autumnal scents and a gorgeous pair of Madewell skinny jeans which didn't hurt.
Which brings me to now. I'm leaving for Southampton tomorrow and I can't wait. I can't believe it's been six months since I made the terrifying decision to leave university and move back home. I'm proud of what I've accomplished in that time - mostly, plucking up the courage to start LydiaLulu. It's gone so quickly but I'm ready to throw myself into a completely new environment and see what happens. Plus, I'm studying English Literature which gives me flexible hours to work on my blogging too. This is such an exciting time and I will be, without a doubt, documenting it all here on my little internet space. Here's hoping Southampton will be everything I've been dreaming of. But as you can tell from the state of my room, I need to get my packing sorted!
