Final Semester Life

The lace trend is one of my favourites, especially in sheer. I think it mixes an extremely feminine style with a slightly sexier and edgier one. It modernises it, if you will. Also, how cute is the wooden house in the background? So Austrian :)

Yesterday was the longest day I have had in a really long time. When I say long, I didn't get a moment to myself until around 10pm last night. University started back for  me, for the very last time, which is crazy to even imagine. My very last semester, and it's by far going to be the hardest of my life, as I prepare for the biggest exam. However, it's also exciting. I am getting to really get in on surgeries and experience the clinic life with a lot more freedom to practice.

It has been hard not to jump on that stress wagon, but I have been sticking religiously to a study schedule. It's what keeps me from panicking, because I am doing everything to plan. It's definitely what works for me, and it took a long time to figure out through trial and error. There really is nothing more to life right now than studying and school, but it's not half as bad as it could be. The cold, slushy weather has helped being inside and just creating a cosy environment at home to work in.

Sorry this is a bit long, I just wanted to share how things are, even if they aren't too exciting!

This is the outfit I wore to my mother's birthday, which we celebrated in Bratislava several weeks ago. As you can see there is snow on the ground, so it was freezing. As much as I would have liked to wear sky high stilettos, it was not at all realistic. Instead, I opted for my new boots which have a thicker heel that can handle a bit of snow. I love this dress. I picked it up in the sales quite a few years ago and still get wear out of it. It's the sort of dress everyone needs in their wardrobe. If you work in a corporate environment it's perfect. 

Today I am up earlier than usual (which is still super late!) in the hopes I can get myself back onto a normal sleeping schedule. I am naturally a night owl, and tend to get my best revision done come evening, but it means I can't fall asleep until around 4am which is horrific. I'm meeting my friend for lunch today, which is the only way I am getting through this revision, by getting out and taking breaks! Do you have any good study tips?

Sometimes studying at home all day everyday gets too depressing. My friends and I like to meet up in a cafe, have a hot chocolate or some pancakes and bring our revision there. It has really helped, and I think it's the best way to continue to stay motivated to study. This is a good representation of what I like to wear to town for a study session, simple and comfortable but still put together. 

I am looking forward to seeing Fifty Shades Darker this week. It will be a good reward for getting through all my revision for the 1st time (I typically like to read through it around 4-5 times if possible). What are your weekend plans? :)
