magical day (and golden leaves)

I fell in love with St Fagans. Does it even need any words of explanation? It's my place, beautiful and calm, where I can walk and walk surrounded by autumn trees and have a mini picnic in the forest and have a truly magical day.

more autumn vibes soon~

autumn days

Autumn came to the streets and parks and it even sneaked through the window to my room, so I'm sitting in jumpers, drinking hot ginger tea, listening to melancholic tunes and drawing, drawing, drawing.
Sweater weather.
I got an adorable raccoon jumper and some plain gloves (yes, I'm gonna embroider something on them!). I was in some interesting places, found some good charity shops, bought some books.
I have so many creative ideas, I don't know where to start - drawing, writing, embroidery, crafts, everything at once. I'm working on the project about phobia for the uni and I'll definitely share that online later. 

what are your autumn thoughts? xx

a student's diary ✿

And just like that the induction week ended. 
On Tuesday we went to the Bristol zoo to sketch animals and have lunch and get to know each other a bit. I loved it, especially the magical underwater tunnel and huge, beautiful beetles and butterflies. 
I love my uni, I love my teachers, I can't wait for my classes to start and I am such a nerd, one of the first things I did was running to the library and borrowing myself some interesting books to study during the weekend. I think I should just live there, get a sleeping bag under a shelf, smuggle some good coffee and make friends with books. 
[That's my freshers week. Yes.]

Beside that, I'm walking long distances in Cardiff and try to know the city. I'm not really hopeless, I met amazing people and went to some really cool pubs like Full Moon, listened to some great music and some great stories.  I discover amazing places, like Cinnamon Sticks or cool charity shops. Here are my new finds:

The vintage patterns in my wardrobe collide which is kinda cool I guess.

Tomorrow - a pancake morning with my new housemates and new "Doctor Who" episode. Sometimes life is nice.

thanks for reading! xx

the day at the bay~

We used another day of good weather to see the Cardiff Bay - I'll certainly return there to visit Doctor Who Experience, but on Wednesday we just wanted to spend a calm time together. We took a long walk from city centre and we ate lunch sitting on a terrace and looking at the water. We had delicious iced coffee and at the end we took the boat to the Bute Park, which was so nice (and we saw so many beautiful swans on our way back!).

Cardiff, I'm in love

Finally! I have internet in my new house which means that I can finally tell you something about the big change that happened this week!
I've already moved to Cardiff. I was also in London for an hour, so I was able to do a quick walk and I know I'll come there in the future. The photos below show fragments of my new room - I'm trying to decorate it and make it more mine, putting my favourite illustrations everywhere. The room is antique, but I like the vintage feel!

The city is awesome and I dedicate this week to sightseeing. City centre, beautiful parks, castles, museums and endless walks (with stops for a coffee). This is my first time in UK, but I think I love it.
My street is quite quiet (I wonder if it will stay that way when more students move in) and my new campus looks like an amazing place - very modern and well designed.
What I love the most is the fact that I can walk to almost every place and everything seems to be near.

I took a really long walk on Tuesday, walked aroung the Cardiff Castle and then I went into the charming Bute Park. I think I found my new green place to sit with a book and a cup of coffee. The weather is beautiful whole week and I managed to catch the light between trees and make photos of my impressions of this place.

I will share with you more thoughts and places when I get to know the city and the people.
see you! xo xo
