Been a while, once again. Have been enjoying my summer holidays with traditional British flair.
I am now officially unemployed. It feels oddly nice but will miss my pals at Whistles greatly! Am moving to Epsom in a week and a half to start another new phase of my life. Fashion journalism here I come! (though might be going to Bestival via all this...)

None of my recent purchases spring to mind when typing this but needless to say I have spent any earnings I have made recently.
Instead, here are a few possible purchases:

Am in the market for more tshirts. Might just buy one though. But which, Im more drawn towards the candy floss print tee.

Wow, been quite a while hasn't it. I seem to of neglected blog-land, both reading others and posting on my own life. This blog was originally started to document my life simply as a nostalgic tool for myself in the future but when I started to gain readers I began to enjoy the feeling of sharing my life with others too. Now it feels as if my life isn't very exciting for others-hence the lack of posts (though ironically has become more exciting for myself!)
Anyway, I am busy enjoying my summer. The last month or so has entailed countless meals out with friends and loves, Norwich visits, a house party, catching up with old friends, meeting new friends, a weekend in Devon, theme parks, working, many nights out, finishing my last shift at Topshop for the summer, finding a house in Epsom, lots of driving, becoming increasingly messy in my own surroundings yet tidier in others and alot of shopping.
The rest of my summer will prove to bring much of the same with a weekend away at Big Chill festival in a few weeks and a house sitting promise in Norwich. I will also be living alone as of this weekend so it seems I will continue in the Carrie Bradshaw dream.

I suppose what should follow are a few of my recent purchases..?

Am being quite lazy at the moment, my excuse being revision hell. Last exam tomorrow!!
My week since my previous post has entailed exams and work (both Whistles and Topshop), a houseparty last Saturday and casual park lounging with old friends.
Today I popped into Blackheath for a bite to eat at Cafe Rouge. As we were walking home we passed Cancer Research with a familiar jacket in the window-and what do you know, it's a piece from the Tux Delux Topshop limited edition range, if I remember rightly retailing around £70ish each. We went in and looked at it and it was in my size and £8!

In another spell of procrastination I found this summery dress on ebay-should I buy?

I returned the black ASOS dress and made up for my loss with these. Since the Steve Maddens were sold out everywhere in UK in my size (karma for deliberating about which colour to buy) I got these. They look cheaper then the Madden's (and YSL!) but they were half the price so!

Broadcast Yourself

Slightly sporadic post today. Summary of my week in short: Monday I went to Graduate fashion Week. Got a little starstruck from viewing Susie Bubble through her perspex 'bubble'. Tuesday called for revision and no play. Yesterday was J's 20th birthday and the first two of my four English Literature exams (this time next week I will be done for the summer!). Last night we had casual birthday celebrations entailing cake, wine and monopoly. Saturday we are having a house party.
Here is the cake I made for J, slightly girly for a 20-year old boy but yummy nonetheless.

Yesterday two dresses I ordered from ASOS arrived:

Am considering sending the black one back. Ironically it's the one in my size as I had to buy the second too large-if anyone knows a good tailor in South East London or London in general let me know!
Really want this dress now, although being about £100 more then the black one can I justify it?

Or perhaps a Markus Lupher tee?

As I seem to have no spare time on my hands at the moment, with revision and work I only seem capable of searching the easily shopped sites such as ASOS and Topshop. I haven't done an eBay trawl in weeks. Hopefully next week all of this will change!

In the summer time

Yesterday I wore my new Topshop Livid shoes over black skinny jeans with just a simple v neck tshirt. I loved it! Wish I had taken a pic to show as the shoes look their best hugging the bottom of jeans. really shows off the detail and embellishment.

Have been thinking alot about summer recently and although I am yet to book anything I am thinking of options.
Here is my swimwear shortlist thus far. Am limiting myself to one-but which?? Help!

Top three, American Apparel, O'neill @ Asos, Michael Kors.

Am thinking I will buy one one-piece and reuse my old bikinis. Although I do love this:

Mathew Williamson @ Net-a-Porter

This is me in my one-piece from last year: (Looking a little plump.)

Tiki Tikiiii

So, yesterday Florence came to visit, it was another sunny day, lush! We went to see Tracey Emin's new exhibition at White Cube- really liked some aspects of it, such as the light sentences, others made me feel that perhaps anyone could be an artist! Maybe that is just my non-artistic side showing through though.
In the evening we went to Mahiki with a few friends. It turned out to be a great night! Met some funny characters. (Special hi to Author? Oliver Haiste).
Today called for College and rests with J, watching a film and falling asleep. Comfort food of Spaghetti Carbonara for dinner.

My outfit for the evening.

Yesterday was so lovely. It really is the only word I can use to describe my Sunday. Lovely lovely- or meat filled.
About ten of us went to a BBQ at a friend, Binty's, house, who is a meat extraordinar. The sun was scorching and alot of pimms was consumed! At around 7pm when the sun started dwindling in the back garden we simply took the picnic bench and chairs into the front garden! What a revolutionary idea! I felt like the epitomy of student life. Once dark we toasted marshmallows on the previously meat filled BBQ. All in all a lovely lovely day.

Today Celia and I popped into Bromley for a spot of impromptu shopping (on my part). I purchased the shoes I previously deliberated about (few posts below) and a sequin trophy jacket. Really did not need it, especially as it happened to be the most expensive one from the range at £125, ooooops.
After spending too much money once again we relaxed in Cafe Rouge for lunch. Then homeward bound for revision.

Topshop trophy jacket, Topshop Livid shoe, the shoes on.

Am very much looking forward to tomorrow as my good friend Flo is coming to visit from Norwich as she has returned from travelling. We plan to stroll around the East End, possibly do a bit of vintage shopping during the day and stay hydrated by having regular pimms breaks! It's for our health. Then off to Mahiki in the evening.

Some pictures I got developed from last week using my SLR. However, the film broke in the camera so only a few came out. Even these are quite bad but I like the colours.

Am in process of adding my Daily Reads links.
