I looked back through my Instagram photos from the past year and not to sound like your mum, but where did the time go?! I'm almost finished at university (CREYS) and it feel like only yesterday that these photos were taken. Anyway, here is what I got up to in 2013:
JANUARY + FEBRUARY
I clearly discovered AWESOME jewellery in January and ASS in February ;) That ass belongs to Brooke Candy, by the way, who you should all check out if you like female body posi rappers.
MARCH + APRIL
In March I visited the V&A mueseum and found this dress by Alexander Mcqueen, from the last collection he designed in 2010. Makes you think of what Lady Gaga is harking on about lately, putting the art into pop culture. I love the digital prints around at the minute and a lot of them source their images from art, like this. I think Sarah Burton is doing a fab job, but I do miss McQueen.
OH, and I suppose I should talk about the BACON. RACKS ON RACKS ON RACKS. Haha. Have you ever been in a Costco? I have. I found stacks of bacon and stacks of Crocs. As a veggie (at the time) and someone that likes to not wear rubber, holey shoes, I didn't know what was worse.
MAY + JUNE
I adore that these two images are next to each other. You have the beautiful Lana Del Rey and my 'Fish are friends not food selfie'. I don't know which side I'm happier about.
My boyfriend and I went to see Lana and she was fab. Have you see Tropico yet? It's incredibly beautful, and of course ~whimsical~ and overuses hipster-esque Allen Ginsburg quotes, but it's LANA. Just enjoy her aesthetics and don't think too hard. My mate on the right was at Alton Towers, he was basically holographic, such a little fashion accessory.
JULY + AUGUST
I went to the zoo avec la famiglia in July and this absolute babe posed for me. She's adorable :) In August, I made it my mission to make a pilgrimage to the Jewish Museum in Camden to see the Amy Winehouse exhibition. She's undoubtedly one of my favourite ladies and it was an honour to see really intimate things like her old school jumper or family photos in the exhibition.
SEPTEMBER + OCTOBER
My boyfriend and I went to Egypt in September for a well earned holiday before the 3rd year of uni began. We both loved the weather and the hotel but we couldn't travel outside of Sharm during the unrest in Cairo, which was a shame. However something we did miss was WI-FI. All the wi-fi out there was shaky at best. It was HORRID. I COULD HARDLY INSTAGRAM ANYTHING.
October meant the start of uni and the first few nights out. I adore this photo for my friend's face. Pure, drunken laughter <3
NOVEMBER + DECEMBER
November signalled a momentous occasion, I wore jeans for the first time in years! I only bought them because of the paisley print (You can see the OOTD here) and I'd forgotten how constricting they can be. It's like when you notice your tongue, you can't get over how WEIRD it is. If you don't know what I mean by that, you've probably never 'noticed' your tongue, you sheltered being.
December means BIG assignments and one of mine is a field study into language, so naturally I picked the language used in rap, or my real title is Taking it back: Feminist reclamations of misogynistic terms in rap music. Fuckme, right?
Let me know if you do a post like this, I loved going back through my year and I lived it! Imagine the fun I'll have being nosy in your posts :P
