Pretty Procrastination

With Reading Period and Finals Week fast approaching, it is hard to avoid the onslaught of work to be done, but even harder to walk to the Reg and actually do it.

Being buried under the cold and gloom can make it hard to open our eyes to look forward to the amazing things the next few months have to offer: sunshine, festivals and most importantly, a new lease of life to our wardrobes.

Wear and Where: Lillie’s Q

Walking down a street, you would never guess that an unassuming gray-colored storefront on the corner of a street would be home to a bustling restaurant full of people in line for gourmet barbeque.
