Hey guys! So this is from a couple days ago. Right after my bout of food poisoning, I caught a cold. This year has definitely not been going well so far for me. =( I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but I was completely drained. I had no energy whatsoever but I pulled myself together to take these pictures just for you guys! 
I normally don't like wearing bright colors but I thought I'd change it up since it was such a nice day and it'd probably liven up my spirits a bit. 
Today, I had to drop off my boyfriend at the airport. He's sadly going back to college in San Diego =/ I don't fly back to London for another 2 weeks. It was sad, but we promised not to cry...too badly. I won't be seeing him for 5 long months! That's crazy, but I know that we're going to stay strong. =)

Hey guys! Can you believe I’m already posting another blog post? I think my New Years Resolution is to update my blog more often. YAY!

Anyways, I’m so miserable today. I got food poisoning and a slight fever. It sucks to start off the New Year this way, but there’s nothing I can do about it but grin and bear it, right?

This is the outfit I wore on New Years. I wanted the start off the New Year dressed my best. I’ve never actually owned a maxi skirt before so when I saw this skirt in the Sale section of an Urban Outfitters store in London, I knew that I had to get it. The original price of the skirt was £40, which is a converted $65. However, I got it for £9 ($14.50)!! What a bargain!! I don’t even think Urban Outfitters sales here in America get that great.

The skirt originally had two slits all the way up each leg. At first, I thought those slits made the skirt unique, but after awhile, I realized that the two slits made it look like a loincloth because of the narrow strip of fabric that is used to cover the crotch. That's probably why the skirt was in the sale section in the first place. As a solution, I sewed up the slits! Took me 3 long hours. I actually watched the Ball drop on TV while I was sewing this thing up haha

Tell me what you guys did New Year’s Eve! I would love to hear it =)
