Sheffield and a cape

Today was a good day. I took the day off school to go to an open day at Sheffield uni and bought a new coat. I've never been to Sheffield before so I really hoped I was expecting to get lost and I did actually very nearly step onto a tram that was going in the opposite direction of where I needed to go. When I realised, I had to sort of cool-y cross over to the other side of the road as if I meant to stand on the wrong side on purpose! I think I pulled it off. But God must have sensed my presence in Sheffield because it was stupid spray rain all day and it was really foggy, so apologies to anyone who lives in there; that was probably my fault! Anyway, there's not much to say about the open day. I thought the uni was nice, especially the student union but I'm still no closer to deciding between London or Sheffield. If anything, going there today has closed the gap and made it a slightly harder decision -_-

Enough education, onto material goods.
Cape - Primark
(Pyjama bottoms - Primark)
I couldn't help but stop in town on the way home from the train station. The Photobooth photos are just so you can see what it looks like on because being a big, continuous piece of material, the cape doesn't photograph very well on its own -It's NOT gold, by the way-. I had just got back and was straight into my pyjamas so excuse them!  I am beginning to get an annual habit of buying coats after Winter but I don't have anything like this and all the other usual excuses for buying things I don't need blah blah blah. It was only £10 reduced from £25!

I also bought a pair of sunglasses because they were so cheap (£2), not that I'll be needing them anytime soon.

And finally, my food 'thing' this week is houmous and taramasalata with breadsticks and warm pitta bread. But more houmous.

  1. Firstly the sunglasses are uber cool! Haha, I actually love them, definitley going to get myself a pair! That cape is a bargain as well, plus I'm EXACTLY the same! I literally just bought a knitted cape because it was on sale, completely innapropriate for S/S but ah well. Oh and warm pitta with houmous is the one. I eat it every day - like seriously! :)

    Shope, xxx

  3. My friend went to Sheffield and LOVED it. However being Londoners we appreciate other cities a whole lot!! I really do recommend studying in London, Jade. The opportunities are endless. London is amazing. If you get to experience it at your age you're super lucky. It will be in your heart forever. Which unis are you looking at in London? And yes it is fairly expensive but completely 100% worth it!

    Love the cape. Suits you so much! xx
