Picture Perfect

Picture from Hanneli

Jeez these models dress well. That floral body suit is gorgeous and the print trousers are the perfect fit.
Today my rings that I ordered from the asos sale arrived in a box far larger than necessary. They were nicer than I imagined, a pleasant surprise with internet gambles. I then went window shopping where another ring caught my eye. A ring so beautiful it hurt to leave it in the store. A ring so beautiful I plan to buy it on Saturday to put away until my birthday. Rings will always be my Achilles heel, a girl can never own too many.
Yesterday I stumbled into a job. With only a few weeks left in Nottingham I will soon be filling them with long days of work, hopefully resulting in some extra cash for Leeds festival and Freshers, providing I curb my spending.
Goodbye free time, lie ins, lunchtime gin and tonics and social life.
Hello public transport at rush hour, early mornings, wage slips and a hell of a lot of coffee.
In other news, I'm going car booting this weekend. I'm so ready to rummage for some bargains.

Educate Me

I wanted to see "An Education" as soon as I saw the trailers but as per usual I only got round to watching it when it had been released. But it was so worth the wait. The soundtrack was beautiful and the outfits were even better. It makes me want to move to Paris, wear pearl necklaces and scrape my hair into a beehive. I thought I'd share some of my favourite screen shots which have left me undecided as to whether to dye my hair chestnut brown or keep going lighter till winter approaches.
In other news, exams are over and freedom reigns. I'm in a routine of staying up late and waking up even later. A rut that is encouraging laziness. Tomorrow may be the day to begin doing something worthwhile. I'll start with attempting to transform an old dress into a playsuit. Despite my A* in GCSE textiles my needle skills are less than impressive and tomorrow will no doubt end in a ruined dress and frustration.
Hello to all my new followers too. Reading all your comments never fails to make me smile.
