The temperature has plummeted here in New York but the leaves have yet to look as stunning as they do above. This photo may be two years old but an annual autumnal reposting feels obligatory.

'I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.' -Jorge Luis Borges //
#librariesweek has me dreaming of paradise at the Bodleian. Using their special collections and writing parts of my dissertation in the Duke Humfreys Library and Radcliffe Camera were some of the utmost highlights of my masters degree. Missing those stacks, the smell of old books, and a scholarly atmosphere conducive for an incredible amount of focus and concentration. #shelfie #therestrictedsection #tbt #victorianstudies

Weekends in New York best spent visiting the Met, picnics in Central Park, and wanders around Brooklyn scouting street art and coffee shops. // Incredibly thankful for Catherine's desire to see Sargent's 'Madame X' on Sunday as it led me to the uncharted American painting and portraiture wing where I discovered this stunning painting of Queen Victoria by artist Thomas Sully. By far one of the more sensual portraits of Victoria and an excellent reminder to catch up on the new season of Victoria.
Also photo 3 makes it look like not much has changed over the centuries 📱😂 #victorianart #queenvictoria

You didn't see me I was falling apart; I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in the park. You didn't see me I was falling apart; I was a television version of a person with a broken heart. // Fucking hell. So incredibly stoked to finally have seen The National live. Every song was so gorgeous and heartbreaking and brilliant in person. A bit gutted they didn't play England but it's probably for the best as I would have disappeared into a puddle of tears far worse than any song from the new album or Trouble Will Find Me. I'm always completely overwhelmed by the depth and complexity of emotion they articulate; it's all so tragically beautiful and beautifully tragic.

It's fry-day, I'm in love #animalstyle #doubledouble #innoutburger

We can be heroes, just for one day // Home for one day only and all I wanna do is hang with this majestic beaut

Cold brew, an absolute necessity after a day of bowling and laser tag with the team #dartdayout #newyorkcoffeeshops

Autumn is on pause here in New York. Nearly the end of September and still feels like summer.

From yesterday's Brooklyn Flea Record Fair // I honestly tried to diversify my collection by looking for some new additions but still ended up taking home Laura's 'A Creature I Don't Know.' Wishing @hannahvettese and @sonyacansingh could have joined me and offered their wisdom and keen insight.

It's been one of those weeks where I'm so knackered, all I can think about is curling up with a cuppa and watching new episodes of Victoria, Quacks, and all the other period dramas on my list. Vintage shops and Victorian facades will have to do until the weekend arrives #wonkyfacades #tbt

Blue Bottle just opened a new location on my route to work. As my boss said, so begins our descent into bankruptcy #pourover #newyorkcoffeeshops
