We’re [I’m] Back! Here’s What’s “New”

If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been posting and reblogging regularly for the past few months. I’ve been dealing with some health issues.

Taken by Monica..jUST outside our window ūüôā I woke my house mates up this morning with my croaky dying voice, ranting this song aloud. I really I’m so hyped and excited about it snowing this morning. I mean, who blogs about this? hahaha. I don’t get to see this where I come from, Nigeria, so to me it feels so amazing seeing it. Only in deep freezers probably haha but trust me this is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen this week, this year to be honest. It isn’t the first time I’m seeing snow here in the UK ?but definitely the first time here in Brighton.
