I can barely contain my excitement lately. I found out yesterday that I've been offered a place at both London College of Fashion (!!!!) and at the University of Westminster. I'm still kinda in a state of shock as there are hundreds of applicants but only a very small number of places on the Fashion Management courses I applied for. But yeah, on the condition that I get my predicted grades - I'm going to LONDON BABYY! Who needs love on Valentines day when you get offered a place at your dream universities?! 
This skirt is something a bought off eBay a few weeks ago. I'm such an ebay addict - I should probably restrain myself sometimes! I love the turquoise-mint colour and I can't resist a pleated skirt! I paired it with my new leather jacket from H&M which I bought when I was down in London a couple of weeks ago. 
In other news, I was featured on the real life pages of Company Magazine. Check out the picture below and make sure to grab a copy! It was in an advert for the Company Mag Website which I was featured in last month - pretty cool! 
Love Monica,xxx
