Sleep and Cycling

Ehy y’all
The exms are finished! Done, finite, over. I am so happy that I can finally start relaxing and having a life outside of my uni bubble. Granted I do still have one more deadline remaining, but the main long hard slog is over. I did plan a whole host of celebratory activities, but to be honest for the last week I’ve just wanted to sleep, and chill and do absolutely NOTHING to allow the cortisol and adrenaline to slowly decrease in their levels, plus as soon as this happened my immune system gave in and I became poorly.
This is me post exams

 I do however I live a stones throw away from Windsor great park so I went on a long bike ride led by my cycling enthusiastic boyfriend. It was lengthy and my legs felt beaten after two months of sitting and reading, but I felt really great for doing it.
We caught a glimpse of some beautiful horse and carriage trial of sorts set in the backdrop of Windsor Castle.
 We sat on the lush grass by the lake and ate ice cream in the sun, wandered through the rose garden and watched the horses at Guards. 

 My bike is a Dawes Duchess 2011 version I received for Christmas from my Chap
Skirt is actually a dress from Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan received from my mum as a hammy down. 
Shoes are Primark a couple of years ago. 

Sorry about the poor quality of the photos, all taken on my iPhone.
Until next time!

It all started with a bang

Hi everyone.
My very first post. Starting a blog is something I have been debating doing for some time. Quite literally maybe two years. And now push has come to shove I am struggling with what to say.
Therefore I think we should start with some sort of introduction:
Hello, My name is Steffie. I am an undergraduate student of The Royal Holloway University of London (in Surrey actually) and I am in my final stages of my BSc in Biomedical Science.
I am in love with vintage fashion and the general nice things of the mid-century era and try my hardest to encapsulate that in my everyday life.
This blog will primarily be about my fashion, my loves, my interests and general musings that swim around my head. With possibly the odd scientific post thrown in there, but rest assured these will not be lengthy and indepth, as if they were I would send them to New Sicentist, not post them here. Plus, Despite being a soon to be graduate of the School of Biological Science, I neither have the knowledge nor experience to write the lengthy articles like the ones I have to study. But as the name of the blog suggests - it is just a small nod to my scientific background.
I am in no way a vintage 'purist' and doubt I ever will be, but I let it influence my style, as I have done since I was about 17.

So like my profile says:
I love Sience. I love high heels. I do science wearing high heels.

this is me:

And yes, I am sitting in a lecture.

Talk to you soon!
