Rain down on me

#teenvogue // Topshop dress, misc jewelerry and bag

I remember the first time we came to this island, I was about 9 and we stayed in a house not far from the one we have now- it had a tin roof (like the one we have now). What many Londoners don't realise because of our nicely clad roofs, is that rain is in fact quite noisy. The small pitter patter you hear on your window is nothing compared to roaring noise it makes late at night when it hits the tin roofs- the first time I heard it I thought there was literally a tsunami coming and I spent all night crying my eyes out- until I realized we were a good 900 feet above sea level and if the tsunami was coming, it probably would have by now.
Odd to think that falling asleep to that roar is my absolute favorite thing now.
Excuse my nostalgic, melancholic tone- we're heading home on Saturday and I just read the London weather report. I would say 'not cool guys'- but it is cool, no literally, it's freaking cold.
Hope you all had a lovely jubbly chocolate filled Easter weekend- time to hit the treadmills! Luckily they don't hit back.

P.s thanks for all the kind (and unexpected!) support regarding my upcoming exams, your words of wisdom have definitely been encouraging and I may not be that kid who cries after every exam after all! ;)

  16. Beautiful photos of what a island holiday would be like! I love the rain though - the sound it makes on the roof reminds me of my childhood! I love that you can't even talk over it and have to wait until the storm has passed - it makes you listen when nature is talking!
