mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut-outs

Today has been amazing! Not only has the weather been a glorious 30 degrees in London today (a rare feat to say the least), Andy Murray became the first British male champion of Wimbledon in 77 years. I've loved watching the tournament over the past two weeks, from attempting to visit and discovering my love for Sabine Lisicki (most beautiful athlete alive), it has been amazing. The match itself was so intense but it was so nice seeing Twitter explode when he won! I love being able to witness British history - days like this make me so incredibly proud to be British and from the occasionally sunny region of SW London.

Other than the tennis-related glory, I had a lil' moment of glory when I managed to snap up the last navy 'Mari' tote in Accessorize for only £19.50, down from £39. 50% off is so satisfying, especially when you've had an eye on the bag for months. I plan on using it for school as it is so spacious; large enough to fit endless lever arch files and wads of paper.

I also got a haircut yesterday for the first time in ages, let's say - too long in reality. I desperately needed fresh ends as they had become dry and gross and meh; so a trip to the hairdressers was definitely needed. I got quite a substantial amount taken off, it used to reach my belly button but now it sits comfortably reaching the bottom of my ribs. I am actually delighted with it, which is great considering I am usually awful with change! I want to ease myself into more changes so I become more accustomed to them as in 5/6 years I hope to go and live in Australia. I'm somebody with a huge case of wanderlust and my half-Aussie genes and pride are encouraging me to live in a place of adventure, beautiful weather and family. And who doesn't want to have lived in three continents by their early twenties?! I certainly do.

Anyway - I'm off to soak up more of the evening sun and absorb the pride of the Brits that is surrounding me at the moment! Who else is secretly gutted Wimbledon is over for the year?
