As I write this, I am listening to David Bowie's 'Changes', a song that will embarrassingly enough always remind me of Lindsay Lohan dressed in that God awful pinafore in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (which incidentally I think was highly overlooked and is potentially the best film ever - this coming from a Film and Literature student at the best Film department in Europe...yep...) ANYWAY, this post's intention was to discuss my recent transition into a '9 year'. What can I say, I have been raised by a numerologist.

The 9 year is a year of clear outs; decluttering, abandoning bad habits/people/attitudes, and generally making room for all of the wonderful new things to come in the following year. This will last until next August, when my 20th birthday will come around (how terrifying), meaning that Warwick Year Two will consist of a tidy, organised, hard working Lauren. Hopefully.

So in the spirit of my new womanhood, I have made a list of New Year/Nine Year resolutions. Make me stick to them please.

Become (and stay) tidy
Read books in advance, NOT the night before the seminar
Read around the subject and for leisure
Read every article in Vogue, don't just look at the pretty pictures
Go to lots of galleries and museums
Become fluent in French (again)
Go for FREQUENT runs
Eat healthily and learn to cook properly
Sketch, paint and design more
Meditate and start yoga
Become financially independent and in control of shopping urges (maybe don't hold me to that one...)
Shop wisely - investment buys, NO primark
Learn to spend save money
Sing in public

If I stick to all of these, I will be the tidiest, most intelligent, most fashionable, fittest, cookiest, relaxed, rich, musical, French speaking woman EVER.

Holiday Snaps: Sorrento, Positano, Pompeii and Rome

In my last post, I said that I'd be uploading lots of lovely holiday pictures for you all to see. I am currently looking outside my window and weeping at the grey, (I am exaggerating a little, my diva fits at the ever-disappointing weather are minimizing - slightly) and thus I'm sure that popping these photos on here will induce a pathetic fallacy related thunderstorm. Nontheless, here we go.

P.S. Expect architecture, art and food amongst the usual holiday snaps. (I am somewhat obsessed with all three)
