BONJOUR MES AMIES!!!!!!!
Ahhhh words can't express how much I've missed you guys and I'm hoping some of you have missed me too seeing as I was still getting new comments right up until yesterday and even more mind blowing was still getting hundreds of hits a day despite not posting for nearly two months. God I love you guys.
The really annoying thing is I'm not even here to stay!! Don't call it a comeback just yet; call it the beginning of something that looks like a comeback. Sort of. Kind of. Not really. You seee my beautiful fashionable darlings, whilst I have been fashionably MIA huge changes have been going on in the real life world of your virtual English Rose. I started my three year course two weeks ago at England's 'prestigious' Cambridge University which, although the most amazing experience of my life which I am dying to share with you all means:
1) I'm no longer in London =( (Don't worry, terms are short and as I obviously won't be the smartest person here I may as well be one of the best dressed, I've done you all proud so far). I feel so 'out of the loop' with everything. There are cows and sheep here darlings, cows and sheep.
2) My usual photographer is in London so I can't even show you guys my amazing 'college chic' look and wardrobe that I've been rocking (I'm trying trying to correct this by setting my camera to self timer but the town and especially my college King's (see all photos), where supermodel Lily Cole is currently a third year - no sightings yet though, plus she understandably lives away from campus, but still, is RIDICULOUSLY beautiful, it would be such a shame not to make the most of it and show you guys so i'll wait until I feel I know, trust and feel more comfortable around people here a bit better before I let them into my virtual world and ask them to take posy 'high fashion' photos of me)
3) This sentence stresses me out to write; no one I've met so far reads I-D - I tried to hide the shock and disgust when someone who was hanging out in my room asked me "what's this?" and preceded to put her greasy hands on MY. I-D and complain about the amount of nudity that was in it. I tried to explain it was art and she just looked blank so I realised it was a lost cause and gave up. The search goes on for someone else who knows and cares who Marc Jacobs is.
4) I'm busy. Like ridiculously, fantastically, tiringly, amazingly, wonderfully busy. Regular readers know I'm in a constant happy state of so-little-time-so-much-to-so (does anyone else remember the MK+Ashley show and books? Ahh I digress!) but this is busy on a whole new level. Between socialising, making friends, work, going out, having fun, activities, societies, calling home, paperwork and so much more, I haven't had time to breathe, let alone do stuff I have to do, let alone do stuff I want to do like catching up on Glee or blogging. I have been here almost two weeks and this is literally the first free moment I have so I'm trying to cram a whole load of stuff into this evening because who knows when i'll get to write again.
You will be hearing from me soon-ish hopefully when things settle down a bit and I start to get something resembling a routine and a sense of normalcy and calm that I am severely lacking at the moment. Having said all of this, I'm absolutely loving it, which is where the reason I decided to write this post without the whole long essay came in. Right i'll make it a bit clearer so people who don't like to read my essays can just skip to this section. If you actually read the above you sure must of missed me.
YOUR FASHIONABLE HELP NEEDED MES AMIES:
Right, so in addition to my weekly college 'formal halls' which are insanely amazing events complete with candlelight Harry Potter style dinner hall, waiting staff, a 'wine butler' (I kid you not), sophisticated 3 course meal and loads more, I also have a 'Fresher's Ball' to go to on Friday which I am BEYOND excited about. The theme is 'Black and White' black tie ball and I had brought two options with me but now I can't decide between the two. I was like ahh I can't ask my mum who is usually my go-to for fashion advice, who can I ask?! Then I had a lightening bolt. My amazing and super stylish readers!!!!
Ahhh, I'm running out of time, I just want to talk to you guys forever! Here's the deal. Two amazing dresses. Both black and white. Both perfect for the event. If you see this before Friday, write below which dress 1 or 2 you think I should wear and i'll love you forever. You guys are awesome. I've missed you. I hope you are all amazing and your lives have been nothing but immense. I'm looking forward to visiting your lovely blogs and having a proper catch up/update soon but until thennnn,
Stay safe and chic mes chéries, (feels SO good to say!)
English Rose x
