New Year, New Blog.


Hi there loves, Remember me? Girl who used to blog a lot? Probably not.

As you may or may not have noticed, I took a LONG time away from my blog. I can't really remember why. A lot of bad stuff happened (vague, non?), things which meant uploading nice photos and looking at clothes was not exactly that high-up on my priorities. Then a lot of good stuff happened too (see images above), which meant I became a bit of a nomad, travelling a lot and never really touching base anywhere. It was nice to get away from the on-line world for a bit. Nice not to take pictures for the blog but to just pin on my wall. A relief to just to eat food rather than photograph it.

But then I got a really unexpected email from someone a few months ago saying that they missed my blog. Which led me to read back through my posts and read through so many lovely comments. Which all reminded me of why I started blogging in the first place.

It's nice to share what you're inspired by with other people who like the same things as you. It's nice to be part of a community, ya know?! It was nice to remember things in my life by flicking through each page of this blog.

I've changed quite a bit over the past couple of years, so I feel like a totally new blog is in order, rather than trying to revive this one. My writing style has no doubt changed, as has my taste in fashion, images - you name it, so you may not like the new place, but I really hope you do.

Pop round for a cup of tea if you can @


So...what did I miss?

Spending a lazy afternoon in bed catching up with some magazines & browsing eBay for a second hand bicycle to do up over the summer.

Boots & Trench: New Look
My dog was being a clingy bugger and wouldn't leave me alone so I had to include her in the picture taking festivities. This weather is seriously doing my head in, it's almost June and there was FROST on the ground yesterday. I brought this mac yesterday to get me through the transistion period and seriously abused my student discount around Oxford St. using the logic that I won't be a student in a month so I might as well spend everything I have for the reason of getting 10% off. You can prehaps see why I failed maths. I only have 4 days of lectures left then I am free as a bird, I've got a nice little internship waiting for me, travel oppourtunities and 365 days to learn how to use the washing machine without asking mum. perfect.

Assortement of Braclets, H&M teal&silver ring, vintage silver ring, Channel nail varnish in Jade, H&M maternity dress (I just thought it was oversized...)



So it's the bottom half of an outfit post...I'm getting there right?! The battery of my camera remote ran out and using self timer and leaping across the patio for a full outfit shot was far too much exersise to commit to before 9am. Tommorow you shall see my top half.
I'm probably closer to the people who sell my coffee than I am my own parents. Obviously I'm joking, I think. Nothing better than slipping on oversized shades to hide last nights sins and popping out for a trashy magzzine and a hot coffee made by someone else. I'm gradually trying to move my knee high socks down a little futher each day, exposing my casper white legs to the world, sunshine is such a hassle! I'm lightening up on my usually black nail varnish and going channel jade for the spring, along with wearing silver as a replacement for my usually gold encrusted hands. All I have to do now is tear myself apart from black clothing...

Images random via weheartit (please let me credit/remove if any of these are yours) & simplybreakfast

These pictures will sum up my day. Lazy Sundays are for indulgent hearty breakfasts, reading travel books, British Vogue, listening to radio 2 and booking tickets on the eurostar.

ps. my camera has been fixed & I've been reunited with my clothes, hurrah, outfit posts galore tommorow!

Jumper & Ring, H&M. Shoes: absolutelynoidea.

I am LOUSY I know. I've been hopping around the country crazily shoving neros espresso down my throat and jumping on trains with an overnight bag and smudged eyes. I've been going to places which tend to have no wifi, and I've realised having an internet connection is a pretty vital part of running a blog. I've also actually left half of my clothes dotted around the place (hense the incredibly lacking outfit post) & I'm pretty sure I left a shoe at Kings Cross station (yes just one of them, brogue style, if you see it.) So I'm waiting upon returned shoes, bin bags of clothes, a working SLR & prehaps the function of my brain, then I shall be back to my normal state and not be posting half-assed posts like this.
ps. I just joined the rest of the world and got a forumspring. It's a little bare at the moment so ask away chicos. Forumspring

Want some summer dreaming?

Wearing: H&M hat & scalf, vintage cardigans & t-shirts & New Look boots.

I'm not being pretentious posing with a Starbucks, honest. I was over the moon at finally being able to eat and drink again after a nasty stomach bug that has completely thrown everything sideways (including the up-keep of this blog- apologies). After enviously watching children munch down their eggs over the weekend, I decided it was high time I painted my lips red and walked into town for a much overdue chocolate fix. I don't normally put myself through the torture of Starbucks ques (what do they do, run to Brazil and fetch the coffee beans?!) but this craving overruled my impatience and one bluberry muffin & cream frappachino later I felt immediately lifted and walked home with a skip in my step through the spring sunshine. Many more outfit posts to come now i'm not hibernating in wife beaters and boys boxer shorts watching re-runs of jersey shore.
What did all you lovlies get up to on easter weekend? x

All items from Topshop.


There's truly nothing more distracting and grade lowering than having the internet at your fingertips during french lectures, and as much as I rely on my phone (although I do prefer my red mock croc filofax to organise life the traditional way), I have really had to cut down on how much I decide to enter the virtual wonders of Topshop whilst my teacher drills french politics into my head. But it's not all at a loss, these items would be perfect for my week ahead, cocktails with the girlfriends, dinner on the patio and walking along the city streets at night in the break of spring. These items boast a plethorum of gentle tones, light mesh fabrics and silk mixed with a heavy knit (my most loved combination.) My first item from here to go from wishlist to checkout will be the mesh maxi skirt, which I plan to wear with a mens vintage t-shirt, silver costume jewllery and if the weather permitts it, bare legs and gladiator sandals. Hope your having the best possible start to your week!
