can you swear to me that you'll always be this way?

Hello lovelies. I feel like I need to restyle my blog. I like the greys and pinks together but it seems too dark and unfriendly somehow. I will come up with something good maybe this weekend. Let's see! 

As I said I went to that party the law society was organizing. It was pretty cool because as a part of them I got in free and I also got free drinks. It was a lot of fun hanging out with all the others and getting to know them a bit better. I had no idea which high heels I should wear so I ended up wearing some that I didn't feel absolutely comfortable in. By 3am my friend and I agreed that our feet hurt too much to party. The music was good - very mixed: songs from the 80s, RnB, pop, everything. It was a good night! :)

dress - Forever 21, bag - H&M, watch - my grandma's 

I went to Linz on Tuesday to watch some hockey. We are currently leading the best-of-seven series 3:1 (semi-finals!) so with another game tomorrow we might be able to get right into the finale already. Woo. Wish us luck!

i'm talking pedicure on our toes, toes

Hello hello. I had a week full of work and fun! I started working for the faculty of law on Monday so that means chores, chores, chores - but they're fun. Everyone seems absolutely lovely so far and I can't wait for tomorrow night when the faculty is having a party for all the law students and I'll be able to get to know my co-workers better. I first met everyone on Monday and had a full day of work on Wednesday already. I had to get up at five in the morning in order to meet everyone at law school at six thirty and hand out free breakfast to the freshmen (but at least we got to steal away a little cup of coffee for ourselves too!) Our office is still filled with bottles of Iced Green Tea and so-called Kipferln, croissant-like pastries. 

It was also the first week of the new semester.. or well, the first week of classes in the new semester. Last week was exam week. Pretty much all of my courses are in the late afternoon which is a little lame because it doesn't leave me a whole lot of time to meet up with my friends after uni but a semester's over faster than you can say blueberry pie anyway so it's okay. I took my first little expedition into the world of Criminal Law I, the actual Civil Law I (not the introductory type) and Roman Contract Law. Next week Intl Law classes start which I'm super excited about because International Law is exactly what I want to specialize in. I'm also taking another history class (yuck) since you have to do that at some point during university and I'm just trying to get it over with. All of that plus European Law means I will be a busy bee this semester! :) 

My outfit for hockey on Tuesday. We're currently leading the best-of-seven series in the semi-finals 2:0! 

They look so dirty in this picture. Oops. I swear they weren't!

My maple leaf necklace. Go Canada.

As you might have realized I have this little obsession with Chanel. :) Love my studs!

My grandma found this old watch and gave it to me after I fell completely in love with it. It doesn't even use batteries. How old school is that? :)

longshirt - H&M, blazer - H&M, leggings - Seductions, flats - Juicy Couture, necklace - random tourist store on Yonge St, studs - Chanel, watch - vintage
Oh, and I'm combining black and blue on purpose because contrary to popular belief I think they look good together :P

Is it just me or do they play Gossip's Heavy Cross around 395356 times on the radio every day? It's actually a decent song but it really gets on my nerves how I hear it so many times a day (and I never even listen to the radio anyway). Well, no, they still play Empire State of Mind almost as often I just noticed. Anyway. I like the song and I don't want the radio to ruin that for me :/

I went to the spa today and got my hair and nails done. Finally. My tips were basically falling off already. Poor lady had to redo them all. She's so awesome though, she's the nicest person ever. What's funny about it is my hair stylist is her daughter - coincidentally! After I had my hair done the girl suggested for me to try light brown highlights next time. I'm not sure. What do you think?

Cheerleading championships tomorrow. Aw, how I miss it lately. I'll probably burst into tears right there. Just kidding :) I wish I still had my outfit and pom poms just to remember the good times sometimes. I noticed there are two pictures of me on their official website by the way. Hah!

Last but not least: who watched the new Gossip Girl and 90210 this week? I'm usually more of a Gossip Girl but I must say the new episode of 90210 was probably even better. Both of them were absolutely awesome though and I am hooked once again. I can't wait for the next episodes. And it seems like Annie is finally stopping to get on my nerves. :) Yay. Alright. End of a long post. If you read until here you deserve a big hug!

Talk soon. x

i heard that you were trouble but i couldn't resist

Hello lovelies. I need to tell you how absolutely happy I am - I passed my history exam! YES! Now, I love law school because I like solving cases and finding two sides to basically everything there is but "History of Constitutional and Civil Law" has got to be the most boring thing ever. I was never much of a history person so that might be the reason I don't like it but it just seems so useless to me studying exact dates and institutions in the middle ages which were only used for 50 years anyway. I'm not saying all previous law systems are useless - in fact, I am possibly the greatest fan of Roman Law ever - but Constitutional History? I don't know. However, I'm DONE with that yipee and I'll never have to worry about it again.

Today, I'm going to a friend's house party and I'm going to see all the people I went to high school with again. My friend Mona just got back from Kenya where she spent the last 6 months helping little kids so it shall be exciting seeing her again. :)

Now that my next big exam is in June I will hopefully have more time to take some nice pictures and post them here. Right now I'm in the process of getting rid of the chaos in my room that I created while I was studying.. that should take a while! :)

This is what my last couple of weeks were filled with. Summaries. Summaries. Summaries. 

... but at least the books are pretty. Love the red.

Someone made it a little hard for me to concentrate sometimes. She's too cute when she starts jumping up at you when you walk by.

... that someone always has a dirty nose! 

I want to change a little something about the blog's layout. It looks a little boring so I need to come up with something. If you have any ideas go ahead and let me know! 
Next post will be an outfit post. Hopefully tonight's outfit :)

staring at the blank page before you

Uhm, so tinypic has decided to play a trick on me and moved/deleted/etc my pictures (edit: and they're EXCHANGING them with odd pictures of people I don't know.. whatttt)  for no apparent reason. Funny thing is they still show up on my account. I don't really know what's going on and given that my exam is tomorrow (panic!) I don't have the time to fix it right now.

Excuse the mess this is leaving the blog in - I will figure it out tomorrow night after my exam and I'm planning a new post as well :) 

For now wish me luck and have your fingers crossed. I'm reading the last script right now (oops, a little bit last minute maybe?) and I hope to be done with it tonight and revise constitutional history tomorrow before I go in. Yeah, sounds like a plan. One that isn't going to work haha.

Good luck, Laura! (I'm crossing my fingers for myself!) x
