Well hello friends,
One girl, one suitcase, six months. GAME ON.
Long time no see! Yep, I'll own it I've been a slacker. I've finally got a lil bit of downtime in Orlando, so I thought I'd smash out a little blog post for you all. For any of my Tessa Charters Instagram followers, I sincerely apologise for the spam coming your way as I document this trip. My loyal Fields of Harper peeps, I am trying to keep up with my social media pages, but being the perfectionist I am, the struggle to get blog worthy photos has been real. You'll be seeing a lot of pieces you have already seen, but I don't have a lot to work with.
Okay so the trip so far. LA I may or may not have fallen in like with you (yes I am using the word like because I have severe commitment issues and I can't throw around the l word). It was honestly some of the best days I have ever had. This whole trip is such a bucket list tick for me and LA did not disappoint. We saw and did some amazing things, but the highlight for me was definitely the Museum of Ice-cream, a close second going to Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach, with a strong third place finish by Runyon Canyon. LACMA you were up there too don't worry, but you just don't make the cut for top 3. I do have a vlog of all of this goodness on my channel which I'll link ya to so you don't miss out.

For a girl with a fashion blog the whole one suitcase thing is suiting me fine currently. However, my bag is sitting at 22.8/23kgs, so I don't have much room to play with. I'm dealing well atm, but when I start to run out of outfit options, shipping to Australia is going to be my new best friend.
I've been having a ripper of a time, but with that we have had an unlucky streak. For example, I had to dump 10kgs of my suitcase right before my flight, my suitcase broke, followed by my camera, followed by my handbag, which I wouldn't say is ideal. One of my internal flights overcharged me 6 times for my one piece of check in luggage, and then made me check my carry on at the gate because they had run out of room, yes that means I had to say goodbye to my laptop, both cameras and all my other important documents and medications. Let's just say it was a stressful overnight flight. Follow that all up with food poisoning on day one of Orlando. All I'm saying is it better be looking up from here.
But here I am, I have survived, and I learnt to cope with these sorts of things under pressure. This my friends is why you over budget so you have spare money for extra unexpected expenses.
Well this is all from me for now. I'll try get back in touch with you before I get to campus. But if not I hope you are enjoying yourselves where ever you are in the world.
P.S. if anyone wants to know where any of my outfits are from just hit me up.
Lots of Love,
Follow me :)
