i'll have a cup of tea, and tell you of my dreaming.

Recently I've been thinking, and dreaming, an awful lot about what I want to do and achieve over the next few months, before deciding whether or not to return to college in September to complete my part time Foundation Diploma in Art & Design. I'm quite a simple girl at heart, so most of my list is quite doable and not very exciting, but I thought I'd share it with you nevertheless. This summer I'd like to explore more of London, visit some lovely places in the South of England, possibly spend a day in Paris, sell clothes online, save some money, write my cv, try to get a job, work with the Victoria and Albert museum more, try to stop being so pessimistic and unconfident, be spontaneous, eat healthily, try not to worry so much, see Legally Blonde the Musical for my seventh time, spend even more time with my family & visit more museums. What do you hope to do and achieve this summer? Happy Easter, everyone! Love, Jazzabelle.

  1. Deffo get into the selling clothes thing, that package was so beautifully wrapped I could hardly bear to open it. I bet you must come across so many amazing finds, might as well share them with others!

  2. My list is very, very similar.

    WE CAN DO IT!

    I really love that hat on you - must get mine out soon. Happy Easter! x

  3. I think things like that are always on my to-do-with-my-life list, especially eat healthy...! And the south of england is lovely - i live in cornwall in term time and west sussex during the holidays, it's so good!

    and, i think you should carry on with the diploma! of course, i don't know anything about your situation, but fashion! what a dream (:

  6. One of my fave Blondie songs :) I'm at a similiar stage too, finish uni in less than a month and have to decide what to do with my life- eeek! I quite fancy a day in Paris; definitely going to visit some fabulous city abroad to celebrate finishing! I adore that hat you've been wearing and the Starbucks looks yummy :) xxx

  7. Mmmmm Starbucks =) Sounds like you're going to be very busy indeed. Summer is the perfect time for healthy eating too because you can have lots of salads etc in the warm weather. I want to travel around the UK a little bit more too since there are so many places I've never been to before. Really want to see the Legally Blonde musical too =)

  11. Love the photos, there very lovely. My list is probably quite similar to you, i love a simple life! Hope you achieve some of them xx

  12. i love that cheeky pic of you enjoying your starbucks, yum! that sounds like a very admirable list of things to try - CV writing is so dull, i rewrote mine about a hundred times before i was happy, but if you get stuck, i could always have a look for you - i've had so many jobs already, it's unreal!
    i want to turn 18 in style, enjoy interning and become a proper fashion geek again, school's got in the way of my magazine and book bingeing :( xx

  13. I love your hat!
    On my list is definitely "make the most of affordable Starbucks when I get back to England"! Stupid European prices.
    I need to re-write my CV, apply for jobs in London so I can afford to live next year, and find a flat with my course-mates. And try not to freak out too much that I only have one year of uni left before I have to deal with the "real world". Scary stuff.

  14. That's a lovely to do list for the summer. I am trying to save money - a lot! But I still hope to do a little exploring around the UK - maybe some camping!! And to get a new job :)

    Good luck with everything you want to do. xx

  15. I love making lists, it gives you something to look forward to and its always a satisfying feeling when you tick it off your list. Love the hat btw xx

  16. Paris is on my list too. It's been a while since I went! I want to go to Brighton and revisit Oxford, but I just got a job, so I don't think I'll have a lot of vacation, so the major thing will be to save money.
    I do think you should go back to college (not my decision off course), but the student times are the best there are! I do tend to believe :)

    PS: lists are the best!

  17. You look lovely & definitely find a job since i'll be turning 16. I really want to save money & then shop till I literally drop. Wish you luck to accomplish your plans <3

  18. For now I just want to get a Merit or Distinction in my Foundation Diploma and get a good job! I hope you achieve everything on that list! xxx

  19. I'm going to encourage your to finish your course :) You've already started it... You should put more of your artwork on the blog, I remember it being so pretty.
    It would be mine
    Haven't had a Starbucks in a ridiculously long time. They seriously need to introduce a stamp card

  20. Your list is a really nice one for the summer :) I need to find a job and spend more time with my friends and family :)

  21. Happy Easter to you, too, Jazmine! Oh, I totally recommend getting your degree first. Trust me, I'm speaking from my own experience. I studied in university for long years, completed the classes but postponed my last five final exams to get my degree for different reasons. To cut a long story short, my dad had a stroke one day, hence, we were even worse economically speaking and I could never afford (time + money) to sit for those last final exams.

    I'm not trying to be negative, but from my own experience, I think it's always good push yourself to finish studying. Especially since you seem to be close to getting your diploma ;).

    All the best vibes your way! And have a nice weekend! :D Hugs!

    Miki.

  22. You can totally achieve all of that this summer :) it's gonna be a good one...i can feel it! like Kristabel says, i'd love you to set up an online shop- your thrifting skills are unbeaten, and it'd be awesome to have the chance to buy some of the great things you find.
    I want to get a job too, and start doing some form of exercise. Also want to travel a little, see places i've wanted to for a while - i'm figuring this is the last chance i'll get to do so ....scary! x

  27. hehehe, it's not my home. although, I do wish it was! wouldn't it be nice? we just found a bunch of pretty houses to take pictures in front of, they are just so nice.. :D

    Also, I wish I could go to London one day.. you honestly live in the most beautiful and inspiring city. I'm sure you will have the loveliest time exploring more of it. Make sure you take lots of pictures!

    So, to me, it sounds like you will have a beautiful summer.

  28. Your summer plans sound lovely:) My plan is to do something new or exciting every day of the summer holidays, so that when I go to university in september I know I will have squeezed every opportunity possible out of my time off:) ♥

  29. Happy Easter to you too! By the way, just wanna let you know that I love your hat and I think it looks great on you. Have a nice week ahead! :)

  30. I love that first shot. Very incognito.

  31. What a lovely post, Jazz! Love that floppy hat on you, as always.

    I'd like to achieve lots this summer. I want to find something new to work on/with, get a tan, buy a vintage bicycle, grow my hair out, go on an adventure and get fitter. x

  32. i think one of the things i need to put on my list is to stop spending ridiculous amounts of time in starbucks, why do i have a funny feeling i might fail that one? good luck with your decision about college (: xo

    ReplyDelete
  33. Mmm Starbucks.. Is that a cocoa cappucino? :) Do come to the south, it is lovely here! (and I live here too, heheh).

    Your summer list sounds lovely, I finish uni in a month and I think I need to start a similar list! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have been doing the exact same thing recently. Since visiting London from Australia in December I haven't been able to think about anything else and why life has been thrown up in the air. I am so consumed with moving over there that I am willing to give up uni and my life here. But I need to really consider this more.

    I like your list, especially how each thing seems not too big a task so you can work with achievable goals. Good luck with ticking off your list dear :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I definitely need to explore more of England - I've missed it, studying up in Scotland. Good luck with your lovely list :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ahhhh, want to see the shorter hair! Bet it looks great. Also, this summer, I want to do my internship and also hang out with YOU. :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have just been cacthing up with all your latest posts - you look gorgeous in all of them. I have a very similar hat to the floppy brimmed one you are wearing here, although mine is black. I love how similar the colours of your outfit and your Starbucks drink are!
    Your list shares a lot of similarities with mine (especially exploring London, Museums and eating healthily - I am feeling a little guilty by the amount of Easter chocolate consumed), although I have also added 'Write more' and 'Pack in as many photography projects as possible' to my ever growing list.. My last exams are in the middle of June, and then I have ten weeks of creative freedom. I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your list sounds amazing. Mine is quite similar, I wish I could go to Paris even if it is just for a day. And I definitely need to sell some clothes or I will be completely broke from all the new ones I have been buying recently :)

  39. I like your hat! Been doing similiar thinking, planning on making a few new life choices myself! It's exciting to have good things to look forward to :-)

  40. Oh,I miss Starbucks so much !

    And I think you should reconsider your diploma : it's a must ! I mean it ! And being optimistic is so easy when you live on the small things in life <3

  41. That Starbucks looks soooo yummy! My summer is gonna be really boring: working loads to save money for uni. But I am going on holiday with my boyfriend for a couple of weeks which will be good! Love the hat x

  42. Beautiful photos, once again!
    Great list, too. My summer list would be saving money, too, clean my room, throw away stuff, and i'll be going on a holiday with a friend to the south of England, too.
    Oh, and i also finally came around using your photos of London you posted in January. Here's the link: http://nylndntwilight.blogspot.com/2011/05/home-is-where-heart-is.html. if i didn't like you good enough, just say.

  45. Such a nice post :) I love your list and I think it's a really good one. I'm hoping to see some more of London too this Summer and I'd also love to get a job and earn some money. Confidence is always an important thing to work on, I'm hoping I will build up mine some more as well over Summer. I suspect a job will push me to do that. Hope you're having a nice week xx

    ReplyDelete
  46. Definitely go to Paris for the day! Bloody good idea, I might try and fit that in. PS. I think I'm definitely going to have to get one of those hats, you look so nice in it!

    ReplyDelete
  47. PPS Thanks for lovely comment, as always

  48. Most definitely achievable goals dearie! Paris especially sounds very exciting. My summer is just full of work placements *sigh* I can't decide whether to be apprehensive or excited, one of them involves a two week stint in London at the RGS again though so maybe we could arrange an anniversary rendezvous? :) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  49. I think this my be my favourite outfit of yours, that shirt is beautiful! I managed to get the day off work, can't wait to see you next week :D
