A tribute

[Kir royale for breakfast… oh go on] [Verne & Kenny] [a crazy drunken night in a nightclub in Capetown for my 26th Birthday. we danced till 5am then strolled back to the hotel watching the sun rise over table mountain, despite warnings to get a cab ‘it isn’t safe’. We sat up talking on the balcony till 11am and the…

In which I love & loathe January & a week in pictures

[edit – Saturday 13.00. I will be quiet on the blogging front for a few days, I heard today that a close friend committed suicide yesterday in a very public way. It was not expected and nobody had any inkling that he had depressive thoughts, let alone the feelings that he was obviously struggling with, and some friends are not aware but…

In which I feel blue…

… well, not entirely, but I am wearing blue, and feeling slightly glum that my holiday is almost over and I have to go back to work on Friday! Coat: Mango, Dress: Asos, Shoes, Converse, Scarf, who knows?! (sorry!) Bag, Miss Selfridge The coat was a gift from my friend Emily, but I think it is still in shops now,…

In which I am flowery

Shorts: H&M Jumper: New Look Belt: Zara Shoes: Peacocks (£4!!) Necklaces: Hamsa hand from my mumma, and longer bow necklace, a gift from Sophie I completely forgot I owned this Jumper, and I reckon this is its 3rd wear ever. It’s slouchy and has a completely useless pocket on the left tit. I think I didn’t wear it when I…

In which I celebrate my birthday by showing you stupid faces

As I am currently pottering around Frankfurt with no desire nor ability to post, this is a scheduled post showing you all my squiffy faces and spazzy stances from various old outfit posts, the ones that didn’t make the cut. If you can’t look a fool on your birthday, when can you?   (the one on the right is my…

In which I video the contents of my bag

This is my favourite kind of video to watch, so an easy choice for a first video! I was inspired by Sophie (who incidentally sent me a completely unexpected birthday present in the post, that I am saving until I am back from my hols!) and I filmed this late on Friday night. I hate the sound of my voice,…

In which I discuss hair, again!

As promised I said I would update you on my hairs progress with using the new Pantene range (see this post). I’ve been washing and conditioning every 2 days, and deep conditioning every 4. Much to my surprise, my hair genuinely does seem healthier, the main reason I say this is because less of it seems to be snapping off…

In which I go to work

Dress H&M, Belt, absolutely no idea, I think either Miss Selfridge/Zara/Topshop, around 5 years ago! I wore this to work, hence the slightly dull nature of the outfit… but I haven’t posted an outfit for a while. The dress does look okay without a belt, but I prefer it with, and I need something to clip my keys and walkie…

In which I get foody 2

A photo diary of good food, from the last MONTH (I know.. slacker right?) If food doesn’t interest you, then I suggest you skip this post! China china (Preston street)  Perfect for cheap but GOOD Chinese food, and normally I am in the minority when eating here, so if the local Chinese student contingent swarm this place, I reckon its…

In which I explore Norfolk & take pictures

Dress: Newlook concession,Love. Boots: Newlook. Cardi(again): Peacocks Nice big back garden, fiancés mums, itchy eyes, models own. I would never normally buy a white dress, but I bought this back in the summer to wear to a friends 30th, and forgot about it, I especially like the little shoulder ties. It came with a fabric belt in the same material,…

In which I dress up for a NYE spent on the sofa

Dress: Topshop Shoes: Purple Suede snakeskin wedges,  Newlook The dress clearly needs an iron, but a) I rarely iron, and b) it had been in my weekend bag and flung in the back of the car. If we were actually going OUT out I would’ve, I’m no skank!! It is a black fine net over a cream under lining, with…
