As of late

Here's what's been happening in my life lately. Nothing major, I'm bunkering down for exams! Some photos are ones which didn't make it into the post they were intended for, or didn't warrant a post of their own.


I finished Rebecca in about three days; it was really good. The narrator did get a little irritating, and the ending was a bit too open-ended for my liking, though.

I had a pie craving, but I didn't have time to go somewhere nice. Luckily, there seems to be a Pie Face everywhere, and the steak pie was adequate. I also picked up this mini chocolate pie, which was cute but not amazing. I'm certainly taking myself to the Pie Tin or Harry's after exams.


Keeping warm.

Rainy Sunday.


Of course I gifed it.


We had a couple of days of terrible weather.

I made myself the best lunch the other day. It's been total chips-and-gravy weather and I've had massive cravings, so I bought gravy mix (just add water!), baked some potatoes, and added cheese for good measure. It was amazing. I'm going to add gravy to everything now.


The copy of A Game of Thrones I ordered came too early, and now I'm going to fail my exams because I can't stop reading it.

So I'm currently tied up with studying. I think my brain is about to explode. It's been one looong semester, I am so ready for Winter break!

  2. Winter is coming...

    That book ruined my life, too. I'm currently on the fourth one, and it's a total time suck.

    1. I'm probably not going to be able to function normally until I've read all the books...

  5. Amazing pictures :)
    That pie looks so amazing
    Good luck on your exams, I'm sure you'll do well - Game of Thrones does that to you haha. I've only watched the television series though, don't have anytime to read the book

    1. Trust me, don't start on the books until you do have lots of time to spare - it's 10x more addictive than the TV show!

  8. this is such a lovely post! these pictures are so lovely and everything looks really amazing - particularly the rain and the animated gif! Good luck with your exams, I had the same problem with Game of Thrones - at the end of last semester I just bought A Storm of Swords and I had to resist throwing in the towel of my uni career, haha. xx

  9. The food looks delicious - I think I'm going to try to make one since usually I just dislike potatoes (and rice) which is hard since I live in Aus hurhur.

    I'm seriously considering the game of thrones. I don't watch the shows nor do I read the books (too thick, too lazy) but I am veeerrryyyy curious

    1. You dislike potatoes? I didn't realise that was possible!

      I'm finding the book to be an easy read so far, the TV show is worth watching as well.

  12. I have Rebecca in my collection and I still haven't read it! The weather has been terrible in London too. I had a pair of tights in purple similar to yours but it ripped so I had to throw it away. Your gif is cute! Woah, that book looks like a big read.

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, you are right! I am quite organised in general and also 'cos I hate things looking messy. You should see my planner/notebooks - so neat ;p A 'what's in your bag' post from you too?

  16. The rain GIF is stunning! Rebecca... I remember the narrator and the many [MANY] descriptions of rhododendrons annoyed me, but I really liked the unexpected ending.

  19. all this reading you're doing is making me want to pick and finish all these half-read books i have lying all over my apartment. it's quite embarrassing to know that once i was done with school and into the work routine that i haven't had a good read since then. thank you for reminding me how important it is to step away from the computer and just remember how good it feels to read something sweeet x

  20. Nice collection of photos! We've been having bad weather days, well it always looks like it's threatening to pour but never does. How is studying and everything going?

  28. Good luck with exams! I really want to read/watch GOT cos all the cool people are into it, but my boyfriend said it wouldn't be my thing, so I haven't made any attempt. I don't like things that are too intense, I get stressed out.

  29. Aaaaaaaaaah Game of Thrones! LOVING it!!!

    Good luck with your exams!

    And now STOP reading that GoT book! Do it! Put it down!! You can do it! ;-)
    (I know exactly how you feel.. I always order books I desperately want to read shortly before I finish my exams, to reward myself, and they ALWAYS arrive too early!! Oddly enough they never arrive that early when I actually do have time and can't wait to get it..)

  30. i like how the book matches your coat, and that .gif is nice as well :)
    and oh - how i wish i could wear winter sweaters... i always miss them a little when the days get warmer.
