Apologies for the poor quality, but here is my new dress that I'm pretty sure I tweeted about. It's from Dorothy Perkins, got it with 30% off, yay! I love the colour, you can't see it too well here but it's basically the same colour of that dress that Kate Middleton wore when she announced her engagement.

Hopefully get to wear it out and about soon :)

PS Sorry for the headless-ness, bad face day ;)



It's gruesome that someone so handsome should care

Got used to me looking constantly sleepy? Yep? Good.
Shoved this on before Uni one day and got rather alot of compliments! I always put this dress on when I'm feeling lazy cos it's so comfy, and put the top (which is my sister's, Grace you left it in your wardrobe and you'd gone to York, I needed a pretty top!) on over it.

My dress came from Alice & You today, but I'll post about that some other time. It's such a lovely colour and fits, thank God!

Tonight I was supposed to be going to the neighbouring halls' bar to cheer on my coursemate and his band, but sadly I need to write up (and try and understand) 12 pages of maths and physics notes! Yay!



It's always darkest before the dawn

Bonsoir lovely readers. Hope you're all well :)

This week has been rather up and down to say the least. Mainly because Uni seems to have hit a brick wall at the moment, my course is getting very difficult and I'm already worrying about my January exams. Eeep. I'm also struggling on the money front so have had to hunt for jobs like a madwoman. I hadn't got anything back from lots of stores, and stupidly realised I'd put my wrong phone number on my CV! Idiot! Anyway that's been changed now, and I've recently applied for a job at a theatre, so wish me luck! :)

True to form I'm having a cosy night in on a saturday, and going out on sunday instead. Seeing as the flat is like a ghost town (everyone's gone home!) I thought I'd give you some random pictures from the past few weeks! Mainly nails of course ;)

Iya eye. These were my nails for Halloween, just a blood red colour with black tips.

Standard red nails.

My recently crafted black shirt - it originally had very puffy black sleeves but I snipped them off. Just need to tidy the sleeves up now!

Me (with my attractive halls in the background) with my favourite spotty dress from Daisy Lane before a night out with the girls.

Three of the best things in life, no?

Leopard-style nails!




Oh I can't explain my happiness about getting this little gem in the post today! Finally took the plunge and ordered the purple-blue Beetlejuice nail polish from Model's Own. The formula itself is thin-ish, you need 2 to 3 coats on each nail. Saying that, the tips on my nails are very white so I'm thinking two would be enough. It shines all sorts of colours in different lights: a deep purple, slate grey/silver and a soft pink. Absolutely love it :)

Lovely lovely.

I was toying with getting the emerald one too, and I would definitely consider getting it now!

Also I have just started my first listen of "Ceremonials" - Magical already, how does Flo do it?!



Green Gloves

Alright my dears. Hope you're all well, sorry for the absence!
There's been no major changes in life since my last post, not that I can recall anyway :) University's going well, halls is fine, people are lovely, simple. Going back home in 2 weeks and I'm so excited! Missed my mum, dad and cat so much, not to mention my own bed and lovely food!

Thinking of doing a nailsy post sometime soon as I keep photographing my nails, they're adding up!

Here's what I wore to Uni yesterday:

The blazer is my lovely charity shop find which I've been obsessed with as of late, the tunic was from the Republic sale aaaand the bodycon skirt a topshop standard one. I like the combination of the peter pan collar and little locket :)

My hair's been doing well lately, it's gone really soft and messy in a nice way thanks to Herbal Essences "Tousle Me Softly" shampoo and conditioner! Keep playing with my hair now haha.

Anyway, there you go, still alive ;)
