Hi I’m Sophia, here’s a list of things I am sick of in my life that I am going to do my best to change:
1.) I am sick of the drama at college that seems to be the only topic of conversation. I don’t even know half of the people who are affected by said drama, so I just wish everyone would talk about the weather or something else instead. It’s getting boring.
2.) I am sick of the nervous feeling that comes with exams.
3.) I am sick of the male gender. Yes, I wore a short dress and heels for my girls’ night yesterday - that doesn’t mean you have the right to touch me up/ stare like a caveman on acid. Vom off.
4.) I am so tired of others relying on me with their own issues. Hello? Have you not noticed? I’m an emotional car crash at the moment and I have enough problems of my own as well as important AS exams.
5.) I am sick of people I care about enormously leaving my life for no reason (cough cough one person) the day before my first exam - which still went well - but that isn’t the point. I wish people meant the things they said. I wish things lasted. I wish people didn’t change their minds so drastically and I wish people had respect to understand that physically “moving on” within a few days of leaving my life is fucking heartbreaking. I’m not a rock. I have feelings and you have left me with absolutely no confidence.
6.) I want a job to kill some time and make some extra $$$$$ but I can’t get one until after August as I am off to France for three weeks. Whoops.

My sister took me to the beach to see the sunset the other day, because I was really upset and stressed with work. Reflecting back, it is crystal clear to me now who I can trust not to hurt me and to always be here for me no matter what. I have had such a lucky escape from someone who has proved that they really didn’t love me at all in the first place. Bigger and better things lie ahead in my future, which I know is going to be amazing.
Today’s attire! (Minus the shoes - I was in Lucy’s house.)
This is me, Sophia Stancer. Nice to meet you.
I love Samantha’s character. She’s smart, has a great job, she’s stylish and she’s hot! Serious role model! S.A.T.C makes me want to move to New York even more!
…For those of you who don’t know what I look like and have requested this.
Mummy and Daddy off to their “Oscars” themed party. :)
In Spring, most Fashion obsessives begin to look forward to wearing more colour, the occasional prints and less layers as the weather warms up a bit.
I, however, am already thinking about what coats I would like for this coming Winter… I have already got one in pretty much every colour and style, other than a maxi coat. I really want one for next Winter. A fitted black or Camel maxi coat, with a pair of chic Chelsea boots and a Prada? YES.
Oh my life I am completely off my trolley…
Today my family are going out to Sunday lunch with friends who we see every Easter! As my second Mummy Antonietta is visiting from Rome next week, we have had to bring it back to today! I really ought to get up and dressed… we are leaving in under an hour!
I wore this dress to college today under my black fur coat. My makeup looks non-existent here due to the rain washing off most of my foundation and my hair… well let’s not. Ew.
Thanks for all your support recently beauts! I haven’t replied to all your messages publicly as they repeat themselves and I don’t want to lose any followers by seemingly moaning about my life!
The latest on Edward is that he erratically decided to book last minute flights home this weekend to come and see me and I will be meeting him on Saturday for a chat.
On a more cheerful note, I have finished photographing and reading the beautiful Vivienne Westwood book I borrowed from the Library and I am ready to do a book review for the fashion lovers who follow me. I will be uploading said review tomorrow night hopefully.
Every year on Mother’s day I usually wake up early to make my Mummy a cup of tea in bed and we go to Church together. This year, unfortunately, I am ill in bed with the worst cold so I have stayed tucked up all morning feeling absolutely miserable!
Whilst Mummy has been at Church, my older brother Charles and one of my younger brothers, George ,have been wrapping her gifts, so that she will have them upon her return. Both Charles and I have bought her cards too, as sometimes we don’t know who is going to do it, so she will have two signed from the three of us and perhaps one from my other younger brother, Henry, who attends boarding school at Marlborough College and isn’t home this weekend as it is not an Exeat.
My Mother is an absolute Wonder-Woman and she is a huge inspiration to me. I have never met anyone so hardworking and dedicated to her job. She used to be a treasurer in the City and has worked for the Bank of Boston too, but gave up banking to have a family in the Country. Now, she is a qualified school teacher and spends every evening going over her lesson plans to ensure they are perfect. Both of my Parents have worked hard to put all four of us through a brilliant boarding school. When she’s not working, she’s running coffee mornings in Church or helping with the flower arrangements, walking Digby (my Jack Russell) or baking delicious cakes for visitors.
My Mother never really treats herself to anything, yet often gives me little bits and bobs to enjoy for myself. I think Mother’s day is seriously important to take time to spoil your Mum and to appreciate all of the things she has done, and mine has done so many for each of us. Happy Mother’s Day!
