Today Aimee and I went to Portobello Market and High Street Kensington for some vintage and high street shopping therapy. I bought 2 vintage leather bags, one in these photos and the other a mini leather drawstring bag which is the perfect size to lug around my camera (seeing as the 3 I've bought for it are-albeit pretty to look at- all boxy= really impractical. le sigh.) I love the shape of the bag in thses photos, the rounded shape is quite a quirky detail and I love the smell of it. That vintage smell...it may sound weird but I love walking into a vintage shop and just smelling...vintage...just me? I also bought a metal necklace from h&m and a vintage burgundy speckled jacket with anchor buttons (I know) for £2 (I know). I'm currently lounging around in it, it's a weird shape as it's a mens jacket but it's super comfy.

I have 6 mock AS exams coming up next week and no time this weekend to revise. Exams + no revision = inevitable panic in the mornings. I planned to do some during the christmas break but never got around to doing it. Why do I always do this?? I hope my parallel self in a parallel universe is doing better at this. My mind drifts a lot. Le sigh.

    I'm supposed to working on journal work, it's in for Monday and I've strung a long a few sentences today, I'm hoping tomorrow the panic will set in and I'll just be a machine! Good luck with your exams, just try your best and I'm sure you'll be great!
