I thought I should write a blog post kind of explaining my absence. I know I mentioned on the blog that I went for an interview for an internship, and I did actually get it. However, because the place I was interning for decided to cut editorial content, it meant that the internship program got cut as well. So, I am left without much to do for the uni break, and I'm pretty disappointed. Mostly because I had four more articles to write based on interviews I've done, and I feel like I'm doing the interviewees a bit of a disservice by taking up their time and then... nothing gets done. I'm sure it is all part of being a journalist, but still.

I'm also in a bit of a style rut - I can't really blame it on the weather, it's more that I'm just over everything in my wardrobe. I feel like my style was veering towards wearing crazy statement pieces just for the sake of it, when it's really not me to dress that way all the time. I went on a bit of a spree last night (with a staff discount and myriad gift cards, so not too extravagant) which will hopefully inspire me a bit.

Anyway! Sorry for the rather gloomy post (and picture, which I actually think is quite cool. I found it on tumblr, if you know where it's from please let me know!), things aren't all that bad really. I'm kind of glad that for a while at least, I'll have more time to spend with my boyfriend and family, and writing blog posts, of course!

Thanks for reading while I'm in a bit of a lull, and hopefully things should liven up around here soon!



  1. You could always write the interviews anyway and shop them around as a freelance. AM

  2. That sucks about the internship, but I am sure you will still find some super way to spend the summer! I know what you mean about a style rut as I am going through something similar. It can be hard to break out of, I just hope some European shopping will inspire me.

    Enjoy the Perth sunshine!

  3. What a shame! These things happen though I guess. I went through a rut very similar not long ago- the way I got inspired was to cull a lot of stuff, then I was able to look at where the gaps were in my wardrobe and start lusting over new things :)


Thank you for your comment! x
