What I wore: The Kids Section

So here's the top I gave a sneak preview of on Sunday. It's so lovely, the collar is just beautiful and I love all the little hearts. I'm glad I had my burgundy jeans on when I tried it in the first place because I don't think I would have figured out this outfit had I not.

The lighting for photo's these days is rather rubbish, no sun + lots of rain and floods = rubbish photo's. But it's okay, I don't have to leave the house until 6pm today so I'm hoping it'll lighten up/stop altogether! I've also found out the real way to dry your hair, so I don't even miss my straighteners anymore, because I think this looks super as it is :) I don't want to get you too excited.. but.. I think I've found a dress for graduation! I found it on ASOS and it should be here by Thursday, so keep an eye out ;)

How I spent my Monday

So, I'm waiting for a lecturer to get back to me about an essay plan (no point starting it if it's wrong now is there... :p), and I tried to book poor Daisy (my car) into the garage for a diagnostic check as her check engine light came on, but they're busy and I have to go tomorrow. So today, apart from some reading, I'm a little free.

Have you ever done one of these before? I remember doing them as a kid :)

the magic flannel

you unwrap, 

pop in the water,

swish it around a bit/leave it alone

watch it expand (magically)

the finished piece! What a lovely flannel, ha. 

p.s. I have a lovely new perfume, it's this one. If you're in the body shop check it out- it's amazing!

What I wore: Movember edition

As I'm sure you're all aware, it is movember. To read more about Movember see my friends movember page. I have been wearing a variation of this t-shirt and my jewellery collection (earrings, ring and necklace courtesy of Kate!).

Sorry I have been so absent, I've just been so busy! It took me 11 hours to get back yesterday because of that darn flooding, mother nature was not my friend.

I'm back to uni now so hopefully some semblance of order shall return, although I am beasting my way through 2 x 6,000 word essays so I might need some inspiration. are you guys doing anything for movember?

Weekly Roundup #16

I haven't got many photo's to share with you this week unfortunately. I've been really busy with uni work and then I've also made a quick trip home!

It's been Kate's birthday and her mum sent a huge cupcake and champagne

She also had a Harry Potter themed party!

I made a gammon and pea risotto 

I have ridiculously weak tea!

Casual night out (didn't end up wearing it) and a crazy friend

I've been riding my new bike

I'm a regular cat lady and new aunt :D

Toad in the hole at nan's! 

Busy week. and I think I'll be doing a lot less work this week and a lot more catching up with my new niece.

What I wore; Holy Moley

No, surprisingly this post isn't about moles! it's instead about holes! I got this top a longggg time ago. perhaps Autumn of second year. so like two years ago haha. and again, I haven't really worn it because I didn't know what to put it with but I think I'm gona brave this. On a day where I'm mostly inside because surprisingly it's not all that warm!

Casual leopard print slippers, courtesy of mumsy.
