A Winter in Paris

8 December 2010

Polyvore always turns into my saviour in cold dreary weather. Best thing to do is get cosy and let your imagination dream off into a different - more bareable - scenario!

Happy Birthday...

25 November 2010

 ...to me! Hip hip!
I don't mean to blow my own trumpet here but I am SUPER excited for today's (and tomorrow's) celebrations. Litres of alcohol will be consumed and there is a strong possibility I will fall in my heels. But, does it matter when you have an obnoxiously large pink birthday badge on?! Ha!
It's been a stressful and adventurous 24 hours. I woke up drained yesterday morning, only to face a gruelling 12 hour day of studying and coffee. Then, after I arrived back at the flat, ready to slump in my pyjamas and drink wine, the electricity completely cut out so I had to reluctantly come home.. I guess it's quite comforting I woke up here on my birthday though. Especially so when there's a snowstorm occuring right now.

Hoping to be out for a bit of Christmas revelry & cheer tonight but, if not, there's always tomorrow!

Love Love xoxo

Happy Hallowe'en!
 Betty Grable
Haven't visited my own blog in a long long time; just over two months it seems!? So, I reckon it's time for an update on my life, even if it is less than cute as my previous posts have tended to be. Maybe I'll revert back to posting all the lovely things I still collect (in the hope one day I'll have time to sit down & post them)..

A lot has been going on -
♥ I've moved to a new city
♥ Gained a lovely new bunch of friends
♥ Gotten a pretty ~high profile~ job
♥ Gotten obscenely drunk and discovered I am definitely the creep magnet
♥ Spent far too many £1s on iced starbucks lattes at lunch
♥ Bought The Greatest Winter Boots™
♥ Gained three flatmates
♥ Procrastinated but, overall enjoyed/ing my course
