From The Archive: 2011

From starting university, to making the decision to leave (and winning my first blog award) - the year of 2011 was a big one for me- and I finally moved back to London to intern and dedicate a little more time to the blog...

Style

the tactful cactus by your window, surveys the prairie of your room

So, last week I had a moment of absolute compulsion. After seeing these trousers had sold out on the Topshop website, after pondering on whether to buy them I suddenly needed them- no other trouser would suffice. Anyway, after phoning up several branches across the U.K (the perk of studying up North and having family down south) and having no luck, I decided it probably wasn’t to be. However, after discovering a Topshop in a spur of the moment trip to town in Nottingham, I came across two pairs, and nabbed them in seconds, and I’m really pleased I did. Despite feeling slightly concious and overly-theatrical when wearing them, part of me knows they are awesome, and I cannot wait to style them more. Here’s some of the pictures inspiring me to parade them around town!

How would you wear these uber cool slacks?

P.S As many of you know, and may have woken up to this morning, the sad sad news of Steve Job’s passing. Such an incredibly talented and inspiring man. Here are a couple of quotes of his I’ve felt particularly inspired by:

“We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.” – Fortune

&

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs’ Stanford Commencement Address

What an amazing guy. R.I.P Steve.
