I know we're all in this business kind of thing

Long time no see! Life's been a little hectic due to travelling for far too many hours, and immersing myself into another internship. This whole 9.30-6.00 business can be rather tiring! I admire those full-time workers who still find time to blog in their spare time. Thankfully I still manage to see my friends, including bloggers who know me well - hello Jade! - and I serendipitously work in the same building as Charlie, which means trips to our ninth floor cafe! Yesterday I managed to get some rays on my lunch hour by sitting in Gordon Square Gardens with an icy drink and a copy of Wish Magazine - a pretty perfect break, if I do say so myself.

Outside of the office, I've been up to Liverpool for a quick weekend to find somewhere to live next year, which is a long, boring, and incredibly stressful affair, but I believe we've got a nice pad now. We even managed to get back in time to juuust catch the Closing Ceremony which was only rounded up by the amazing bloody Who! Admittedly it was rather lacking in David Bowie and the Rolling Stones, but, as the Kinks got a look in, I'm a happy girl. And for those who fancy something new, I'm leaving you with a girl we've been listening to non-stop in the office: D E N A

  6. I'm not sure I could ever manage the 9-5+ thing (that said - someday reality will surely hit and I will find myself doing it). Love these shoes! Hope you're running around your office in some awesome outfits :)
