 Hey Guys,
So Spring is here, sun is out and we're loving the spell of gorgeous weather… or so we thought. Today we both came into school thinking it was going to be yet another glorious day in London Town, we were wrong. Dressed in skimpy chiffon and jersey, thank goodness we decided to wear opaque tights, we were freezing as we had to battle with the elements dressed like it was summer!

It's a serious problem us girls have to deal with, to brave a dress or not to brave a dress, boys luckily don't have that dilemma. Fingers crossed the warm sunshine will be upon us very soon, we've started to miss it already.

All this talk of summer is getting Paloma and I really excited about our holiday this year. A load of us are of to Benicassim festival in Spain and during the little study breaks we have, we're browsing the internet looking for skimpy bikinis and shorts to brave the heat, especially when camping! Wish us luck
Love, Jess xxx

Hey everyone,

These past few days have welcomed the first bit of sun here in London for the first time in months! I forget how much I love springtime until it comes around again, and Jess and I were determined to make the most of it.

On Monday we both turned up to Sixth Form in appropriately co-ordinated floral outfits (a coincidence I promise!) The sun, flowers and bees all made an appearance whilst shooting our outfits to our delight. Feeling ever so hippie we ended up having a the biggest conversation I have ever had about flowers (as you can see our life is super exciting...) and how florists are extremely underrated!

There is nothing better than a bunch of Spring flowers wrapped in brown paper, right?

Has the sun made an appearance where you guys are?

Loads of love,

Paloma xxx

Little Darling, it feels like years since it's been here, here comes the sun...

 Hey Guys,
So a couple of posts back I said went to Liverpool to audition for LIPA (a performing arts uni/drama school) and I received a recall. Well, this weekend just gone was the weekend I could become a tourist again in one of my favourite cities.

I had such a fun time roaming the streets taking numerous snaps with my Olympus Epm-1 round my neck and having a blast in movement, acting, vocal and speech workshops in LIPA itself.
Although I received a place on LIPA's foundation course, I realised it wasn't for me and i'd much prefer university - Exeter or Lancaster, decisions decisions!

It was such a lovely sunny weekend spent with my lovely parents who I dragged along, as they 'had to see the city', which I kept on reminding them since my last visit. 

I definitely recommend visiting Liverpool even if its just for the amazing architecture or numerous shops - yes, I managed to find plenty of 'zen' shops :)

Lots of love, Jess xxx

How do you like your eggs in the morning, I like mine with a kiss...

 Hey guys, 
So we've both been under a lot of stress recently, prom is finally coming together after an entire day frantically calling venues (with pancake intervals), coursework stresses and of course the social and work life balance. Does anyone have any de-stress tips? we definitely need some help :)

The only thing getting us through the pressure is the beautiful british blue skies. Finally the sun is poking through the clouds and we can see some rays…oops don't want to jinx it!
Have any of you got any days out planned in the sunshine? I'm off to Liverpool for my LIPA recall audition this weekend, so its highly possible that I might completely miss it :(

Happy Shrove Tuesday by the way! Pancakes are so easy and of course tasty, i've had 10 in total, i'm so gonna regret it, but they were lush while they lasted. Paloma and I had an early start today so for fuel for a busy day we flipped some pancakes to some 80's tunes, perfect wake-up routine.

Love, Jess xxx
