twelve hours.
three 2,500 word essays.

In California, Joanna Newsom
this is one of my favourite songs in the whole wide world and though it's a little slow to start, as it progresses your heart will grow and swell,
with pride and you'll want to tell your dearest friends about this little song - i swear it's true (and just FYI, the best bit starts at one minute fifty-two).

residing in central london means that i pass a plethora of shops on a daily basis (sometimes twice or even thrice!) and temptation can be had to resist. so one day, i didn't and i bought these gorgeously elegant, jewelled chandelier earrings.
thank you accessorize!
ps. Lorna at Haphazard Afternoon has a wonderful little blog that is feeling rather unloved, so go over and check it out; she's even having a giveaway!

flightless bird american mouth, iron & wine

books thick and heavy with dust, making my eyes itch and twitch
and slowly rebuilding my trust amongst the pages
as my nose is buried firm for ages and ages,
inhaling in arguments and theories.
university does make me weary and tired with all these words,
but words are good as gold today, because today,
i finally TOLD.
