Time to relax.

As of 1.30am last night I received my exam results. I should be very pleased. But its bittersweet, y'know? I'm one of those people that enjoys the buzz around exams. Perhaps that is because I studied two subjects I loved (art history and history) instead of a 'proper' degree. I'm a dreamer, always have been. I hate numbers, languages dislike me. I am fussy with what I choose to remember. I really don't know what the future holds now and its terrifying.

Anyway, I have my 2.1 and I can only cross my fingers and toes that Glasgow will have me!

Pinafore, H&M. Jumper, H&M. Flats, Office.

Over the weekend I went to the Irish Museum of Country Life outside Castlebar, Co. Mayo. It was quite busy as a couple of buses of tourists had been dropped off and the weather was quite pleasant. I hadn't been since secondary school and had forgotten how lovely the gardens were surrounding the main house and galleries. The woodland held colourful little surprises, like these miniature houses and boats.

I add another reason to go to Mayo, I wanted to pop into their New Look store there. I hadn't been to New Look in so long and I was disappointed, I left empty handed but ended up picking up a crazy pair of floral cropped pants in Next. I'm still not sure what I think about them, so the tags are staying on for now until I'm inspired. I'm even playing with the idea of buying a maxi dress. Me!

  7. Hello Zoe. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I've enjoyed looking at yours. I like the photos of you - you have great style! I have to tell you that I gave a lecture on William Morris to younger art history students when I was a senior in college. I share your love of his work.
