I shall not rant about how terrible I am as a blogger so let me just go on to filling you guys in on what has been happening this past month of my absence. I left Nigeria over a week ago and I started school in Manchester. I have been running up and down the city in my Chuck Taylor's and jumping over pools of water trying to settle in well thanks to the bipolar weather over here.I love Manchester and the city has the vibe I really wanted for University so I am positive that I would enjoy it here. However, I have made sneakers, flats and boots my staple footwear because I do a lot of walking.Tons of exercise for me to loose those extra pounds I gained over a couple rounds of pounded yam and serious napping. Autumn is my favourite season because of how pretty the streets look with fallen leaves upon the green grass. My wardrobe staples include colourful knitwear, wool blazers and scarves from the vintage stores on Oldham Street, a bit of leather, sneakers and soon to be added to my collection, a vintage fur coat I am lusting after. By the way, notice my hair? I am still team natural but I decided to get some sort of afro weave for the sake of protective styling. I kind of miss my hair though but, thoughts?
After classes yesterday I decided to shoot some photos with my friend, Deola. Thankfully the rain had gone down and we were able to get some good shots despite the gloominess. I am wearing my all time favourite vintage wool blazer, faux fur leather shorts and earrings from H&M, black "uncomfortable" flats from Primark, ASOS (gifted) bangles I got as a gift from my friend, vintage sweater and this season's version of my old Mango bag from last Autumn.
I should be posting a couple artsy photos for lovers of photography like me in some days. Just hope the rain eases up a bit so I can get solid shots of the architecture here because it is really historical. Im off now to my Advanced Math class. Hope you are all having a great week.
