good times for a change

snood - H&M
shirt - Primark
jeans - Primark
bag - Primark
shoes - Faith
necklaces - Topshop & Claire's

Well the strike provided a rather nice amount of time for me to leisurely complete my english homework, as well as other much less productive activities. E.g. christmas cake making & hot chocolate drinking.
Hopefully the weekend (and the rest of December) shall be spent doing much the same.

White Winter Hymnal

top - Topshop
necklace - Topshop
skirt - Topshop
shoes - Faith
bag - Primark

I think I might actually be starting to lose my mind. Although I was in school at 9oclock, my brain apparently decides to switch off to the idea I actually have economics and instead I sit in the common room making economics notes for an hour. Having realised my mistake (3 hours later) I rush off to my economics teacher (who thankfully is lovely) and hand him my work and apologise profusely. Apart from that, my day's been pretty relaxed. Well, perhaps different adjectives could be used to describe my slightly chilly walk home, but it left me feeling in a seasonal mood anyway.
As a result I now have 'walking in a winter wonderland' running through my head. I shall be popular tomorrow.

the madder hatter

jumper - Tu at Sainsburys
shirt - Primark
skirt - Topshop
bag - Primark
hat - Disneyland
bag - Primark
shoes - Faith

I haven't posted in a while due to the ridiculous fact of me actually being busy (shock horror). Also I usually look a complete mess upon return from college having being savagely attacked by the harsh British weather, not really in a fit state for photo taking. I actually really like this time of year, especially the build up to Christmas and my birthday (two days before Jesus if you were wondering) although I never tend to make a big deal out of it. I also have a great deal of presents to buy with no money which shall be fun, if anyone has any ideas of presents for ahem, boys who are friends, do share your wisdom.

gunpowder, treason and plot

cardigan - charity shop
dress - Jack Wills
shoes - Faith
belt - Primark

Just literally ran down to the cricket ground by our house to catch the fireworks. I love how I get the same feeling when we go every year and how it's slightly cold and I'm surrounded by sparklers and hot dogs. I still can't believe how fast this year has gone though, and I'm imagining this one will be much the same.
Also, I'm actually selling this dress if anyone's interested do click here.

it's always darkest before the dawn

dress - Marks and Spencers
necklace - DIY
shoes - Faith

I wore this yesterday evening for my friend's birthday dinner, I love the forest green colour although it manages to look slightly more turquoise on the pictures. It was actually £13 from Marks and Spencers outlet, which I was dragged to by my mother, then spotted this tucked away in the clearance section.
Anyway, it was today Guy Fawkes planned to destroy the houses of parliament in which we now celebrate by eating jacket potatoes, toffee apples and nearly blowing up our own houses with homemade firework displays. Fingers crossed it won't rain, hope everyone enjoys their November the 5th!

Also, here are a selection of things I wouldn't mind purchasing from lavishalice, which I actually rather like. Prices are a tad cheaper than Topshop, although I thought some of the items were a little questionable. The majority is very pretty though, if only I had the funds.

you should have put a ring on it

Thought I'd show you all my natural look today.
Also, I know it's two days late, but I found a pair of ripped tights and I just couldn't resist.

look it's a lookbook look
