you are what you wear by celeste

Just for a moment, think about what you would be if you were : a) what you ate and b) what you wore. I’m assuming that both answers will (in most cases) be grim. As someone with fashion and sustainability constantly on my mind, i think it is truly important to transfer one’s core values into their fashion and lifestyle. Above are some delightful designs via BOA’s hand-made, organic ‘Pamuk’ collection. This Istanbul-based brand is gaining global appeal (thus it is also relevant to all of us at st andrews), and embraces eclectic worldly styles as well as sustainability! Instead of describing them more, i will let you all look them up for yourselves on the internets. Still not convinced? I’m going to go off on a little tangent and leave you with some food for thought… Continue reading

This play is one of Shakespeare’s most well known pieces, and this weekend it will be performed in St Andrews by some of our finest¬†Thespians! Unlike the versions we have seen, this performance is taking the play back to its Elizabethan glory! It will have an all male cast (strictly no females allowed on stage!), with live music, period costume, sword fights, and lots of Shakespearean drama to take you back to fair Verona! The play will be held in Younger Hall, and for the true Globe theatre feel the audience will have the option of “groundling” or “balcony” seats. ¬†There will also be festive¬†refreshments to help you escape the books for a few hours!It looks like it is going to be a really good show – buy your tickets at:
