Sleep is overrated:

At least, that is my motto for the next two weeks.  The past three months in London have gone by all too quickly, and now I have less than two weeks left… I know it sounds so cliché, but I feel like I just got here. There is still so much left to explore: museums to visit, buildings to tour, souvenirs to buy, markets to browse, and pictures to take.

But there’s looming project deadlines, papers due, and finals standing in my way.  As I’m a perfectionist, I’ve decided to sacrifice sleep. It’s the only option if I want to maintain my grades and still get the most out of my last two weeks living in London.

Even though it still doesn’t feel real, I’ve finally admitted it. I am leaving. Although, I truly hope I this is not the last time I will get the chance to live in London… because three months is just not enough.

Here are some photos from this past week in London:

I apologize for the short post, but I have a deadline tomorrow and I’m going to see Pippin tonight for my musical theatre class (I know, rough).  Actually, my analysis on The Naked Mannequin is what is due tomorrow. I’m not sure if I mentioned it, but for the past couple weeks I have been focusing on generating more engagement as part of a case study for my interactive communications course. I really appreciate all those that have been reading in the past couple weeks! I look forward to continuing to develop The Naked Mannequin and my communication with my followers in the coming weeks.

Cheers! XO

Current obsession…

My mustard colored skirt that brightens up any outfit.  Today definitely called for some brightening. I’m currently rocking the skirt with thick tights, boots and layered sweaters because my room is an ice box. The now unyielding cold weather is just another reminder that I only have three weeks left here…

Although, I am trying to make the most of it. Fortunately, everything in London has been transformed into a beautiful winter wonderland. There are Christmas lights and decorations everywhere, festivals, ice skating, and Christmas markets (which I am most excited about). My wallet is definitely taking a beating. Only three weeks left to shop in London? Obviously I am taking advantage of the opportunity. I still need to buy some souvenirs. But let’s be honest, I’ll probably end up purchasing more clothes than anything…

What’s on your holiday shopping list?

Love this skirt. With my sorority sister, Meg Ghezzi!

Obviously, not a winter outfit. That's because I was on a cruise from Greece to Turkey!

Did I say it was almost Christmas? Ehh, I'm still on holiday.

Cheers! XO
