Goodbye January Blues

Queue the 15,000th time you've probably heard this this week but January, you have felt like a lifetime. But alas, the wait is finally over and that means we're one step closer to bare legs and ice cream weather. Though getting into the habit of shaving my legs again is probably not ideal. 

(lest we forget that pancake day is around the corner either, hallelujah)

Whilst I've been busy wallowing in my Christmas chub pity and leaving deadlines til the last minute as per, my baby blog was boxed into a corner. So I thought I'd dust away the ol' Velvet Spring cobwebs and get back into the swing of things just in time for February. So what have I been doing? 

I spent most of my Christmas break finalising deadlines and project work, whoever thought it was a bright idea to give us deadlines over Christmas was the actual devil incarnate. I kept getting pangs of guilt whilst trying to enjoy my yorkshire puddings. But I made it by the skin of my teeth and I'm now moving into my last ever semester as a Fashion Communication student. The sheer thought makes me want to do an excited wee and simultaneously vomit at the same time. 

I also successfully accomplished Veganuary, yes you're hearing right. The self confessed cheese connoisseur turned her back on her beloved, and honestly, I have no regrets. I'm drafting a seperate post talking about my experience and why I've decided to stick to my vegan guns, so I'll leave the juicy bits for that. But, I will say I feel like a new gal and I love it.

And, I think thats about it? Thrilling I know. But I'm glad to be back and finally getting back into the ol' swing of things. What blogposts have you enjoyed reading lately? Leave me some links to have a gander. Thanks for reading and putting up with my absences as per usual. 

PS, the lovely Megan from What Megan Wears is responsible for taking these photographs and I 100% think you should give her blog a little read because she's fab, that is all x
