Hi my dears!
The past two weeks I’ve mostly been instagramming about things I did from my january to do list, which was posted on my blog here. There are actually a lot of things from this list that I already did or already started working on. This post is going to be a combined Instagram and checks of my to do list post. You can follow me on Instagram by the name of RedSonjaFashion.
I already started working on all four blog wise points. Out of these, I’ve mostly been working on my layout. It will take a while before you will see the new layout, as I want it to be absolutely perfect before I put it online! As I don’t have Instagram pictures related to this, here are two random Instagrammies that don’t necessarily have anything to do with my january to do list at all. Haha!
From the fashion wise things, as you might know, I already went shopping at Action (see my buys here) and Primark (buys here, outfit here). I also started working on my first rockabilly dress, which I’m making from a blue-greenish fabric and went shopping for perfect bras, pants and jeans. I succeeded in buying exactly no pants or jeans and one bra, which I will be able to pick up in a few days, as it needed some adjustments. The point is, I have the non-average bra size of 60E. I actually never found a brand that sells this size, so I need to find bras that fit kind of right and are possible to resize. Wondering what this costs? Sitting down? My new bra costs… €86. Luckily, my mom is so kind to pay my bras! I still need to find more right fitting bras though, as all my other bras are very old and the wrong size. But I’m getting there!

Friends wise, I arranged a date with my friend from Antwerp for the 24th, celebrated the 18 birthday (i.e. anniversary) of the friendship with my best friend, waved my best friend good bye at the airport when she left to study in Edinburgh for 6 months and spend time with the boyfriend during most of his spare time!

Looking back at what I wrote under the random stuff, I see that I totally forgot about my masters thesis. I need to further specify my thesis subject and contact some professors about it, whether it’s a subject I’m allowed to do. This is actually the only study related thing I wrote on my list and I just forgot all about it, haha! Very typical really… Oh well, I still have two weeks! Procrastination anyone?
What I did do from the random stuff is hang my Elvis Presley poster on my wall and organize my vinyl record collection!
