Hello world! So I guess it's time for a little update, as I feel as though I've been kind of MIA for the past few days. Ahem, where do I start?

Let's start at the fact that I've only gone and gotten an internship at Company Magazine of all places!! I start at the beginning of April, and I'm hoping to do a little vlog (or at least a blog post) on my experiences there at some point, so if you have any questions shoot them my way!

The next update is something regarding the blog - no no, I'm not eloping to yet another website again. Instead, I've decided to dedicate every Tuesday to some blogging/career/life tips and tricks. Nothing profound, but just a few things I've picked up throughout the past few years of internet-livin' that I get asked about quite a lot. The first #tiptuesday will begin next week, and I'll be focussing on how to create a Media Kit (which is pretty damn important when dealing with PR and potential partners). Any questions? Shoot them down below!

Other updates include: getting a new sofa, getting a new rug, eating dominos pizza twice in 48 hours, generally suffocating myself with university work and oh, I'm casually working on producing a lifestyle and culture magazine. You know, just so you're in the loop..

Update me on your life!?

So here I am in all of my boyish glory - a complete polar opposite to any Youtube videos or tit-picks I've been showcasing on the blog recently. I feel like during the last year my style has gone from something that I guess you could call somewhat minimalist to a complete car boot disaster, in the best possible way. If you told me I would be wearing culottes, faux fur accessories and a man's jumper in public (let alone on the internet) a few years ago, I'd have laughed in your face. Ironic really, considering that that's pretty much the exact reaction I get when I step outside in this little number. H8rz gon h8.

How has your style changed over the past year?

Talk about first world problems - this week I've been in the midst of moving house (if I haven't already mentioned that enough times) so my connection to the digital world has been somewhat non-existent. I've said it once and I'll say it again - thank the lord for coffee shops with free wi-fi. I've potentially consumed more iced lattes in the past week than I have in my entire life, which says a lot. But despite the caffeine shakes and having to actually get dressed before leaving the house, I've really enjoyed working out of the house for once. Who would have thought there was a life outside of the internet? Maybe I'll make this venturing out ordeal a weekly tradition.

YES it's true - I'm off on my travels once again! Although this time I'm hoping it'll last a little longer than a few weeks. I've been back at home in Cornwall for not even a month yet, but it's already time to start packing everything up again. This time though, I'm staying South and actually going to somewhere with real shops and roads as opposed to cows and lanes. And get this - I'll have fast internet for once in my life! Oh lordy, this is gonna be good. That combined with a brand new Canon 6D (hello!) and a little DIY surprise I'm working on (read: I used a saw..) means yesterday was definitely one of the best days Ive had in a while.

What did you get up to in the past 24 hours?

IT TAKES a lot of time and effort to fill a wardrobe with just leather jackets and monochrome basics - in fact, I like to think of it as a skill, requiring a fully trained eye. But to make sure I'm not walking around in the same all-black ensemble day after day (although that does seem to have been the case lately) I like to mix it up with some slight variations. The black tee has now become the black TEAM tee (only a few years too late on that bandwagon) and the black heels have merged with my trusty sneakers, resulting in a sort of halfway height-helper. Am I making sense here? The more the merrier.
