Sancte et Sapienter

Posted on

After four years of online independent study, I'm finally back to school... which could perhaps have something to do with the lack of blog posts as of late (not to mention the fact that I've been travelling around Europe all summer). This autumn I moved from Oxford to London to study English Literature at King's College London and it's safe to say that I've loved every minute of it thus far; I can't think of a better degree for me or a better place in which to read English Literature. Not only am I studying in the very heart of London, but I am living in Bloomsbury where the likes of authors such as Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf lived. Since starting university just over a month ago, I've learnt (and read!) so much and being in such a fast-paced city has made it difficult to process this surreal experience. The motto for King's is 'Sancte et Sapienter', Latin for 'With Holiness and Wisdom'— King's embodies these two principles and I'm beginning to see them being instilled in me.

Now that I'm attending classes in person and lugging books to and from the library, I have found myself in need of a new backpack. Coincidentally, I was recently approached to collaborate with a London-based label called Beara Beara. Not only do I love their high-quality and vintage-inspired bags, but their story and ethics really caught my eye. The British label began as a collaboration between Irish entrepreneur Jake Bullough and a small family-run business that has been making handmade leather bags for generations in La Pez, Bolivia. Beara Beara runs on a set of values that I really admire and the craftsmen in their workshop in Bolivia still embrace traditional techniques to produce a bag that will accompany me through all of my university adventures. Having been on the hunt for a practical backpack to fit all my books and my laptop, the Santa Anna bag ticked all of the boxes and its versatile design works with every outfit.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants
    to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
