In anticipation of starting post-uni life, I used my rapidly dwindling student finance to buy some things. I've got so used to having my own room for three years now, that it's a little bit disappointing coming back to half a room, even though my sister is going off to uni this year. However, I've tried to make the space my own again, and have it reflect my new interests: white space; the colour blue (my favourite colour), trinkets and curiosities.
I briefly mentioned my interest in the fascinating (and very problematic) circus showman P T Barnum. I saw this circus poster on vinmag, which has stores in Brighton and London and sells amazing retro items like posters from classic and cult films. The blue is amazing; there is no way my iphone was able to capture the deepness of that blue. I also decided after five years that I would retire my poor old navy Kanken and buy a brand new one. This one is 'Estate Blue'.
On Sunday I met up with a couple of friends to go to see the London Symphony Orchestra at an open air concert in Trafalgar Square. We had to arrive really early to make sure we had space to sit down as it was estimated that around 10,000 people would show up. It was great, there were even kids as young as eleven playing in the orchestra, which was mind-blowing! Thank God for pushy parents!
