i fancy them both

living the dream

argh i love her wardrobe (except the stuff that's a little too emo/goth for me). she dresses way too slutty for someone who isn't even legal yet though.

lily allen for russian harper's bazaar

i'm surprised no one else i follow on here has posted this, i expected a lot of people to go mental over them. i hope it's because no one really likes lily allen. i don't either but i think they're lovely photos. i still don't think she's attractive without make up on (but then who is?).

insert pun here

it's so weird that i just saw this on tumblr when only monday my sister bought me a card with this on as she thought i would appreciate it.


some stuff i've picked up in the post-christmas sales..let me know what you think

is this cardigan really wrong? i know its hard to make out as its too dark in my room but its a long purple leopard print cardigan. i never thought i'd wear a thing this purple or this leopard print but i actually really liked it and it's a nice fit. honestly though, is it hideous? (£8 from asda)

a new cosy big knit grey cardigan from asda £6 worn with my new faux fur scarf from h&m i got for christmas.

its not a real russian doll, its just a piggy bank but i thought it was very cute and at only £3 from next a nice little addition to my bedroom.

does anybody still read this?

hey everybody, sorry i've been a bit quiet of late, i've been working a lot and then it was christmas and then i worked some more. i hope you all had fabulous christmases and everybody got all the treats they wished for! i have now since left my job so expect a lot more posts from me. starting now.

christmas eve my dad took me and my older sister, lucy, to harrods. whilst we were there we couldn't help but check out the sales that had already started and daddy couldn't help spoiling us both. i am now the proud owner of these carvela at kurt geiger boots. its true love.

i honestly can't think of anything in my wardrobe they don't go with and they give me the added height i require on a daily basis without compromising comfort. win, win.

that's it for now but i will be posting up all the yummy fashion treats i got for christmas in a post soon.

yummy mummies

aww how cute. also, how much does harlow look like nicole richie and joel madden!?

good girl sounds bad.

i love leighton meester to bits, i really do but i am 100% against her music career. i'm sorry but she sounds bad and her dancing is just so wooden. its a shame i really wanted to like it.

just a small town girl living in a lonely world.

i reeeeeally want this cardigan. i hate taylor momsen/ jenny humphrey (yes, that's right both of them). i finally got my jay jay pistolet t-shirt yesterday, the package has been sitting at home for me for a long time and i love it, its a shame he won't be making music anymore.

songs i'm loving at the moment

except changing the lyrics to "new cross".

last night josh stole the club sandwich inflatable sandwich but unfortunately got taken down by security. we also had an improptu house party and i know the mess isn't going to get tidied up before my dad comes tomorrow to take me home. tonight is my last night in new cross for a while but i am so ready to go home and have a break.

mouse update : we've caught 2 now in our mouse trap set up in the kitchen. apparently they can't resist peanut butter.

ties from iceland

this woollen tie is amazing! not enough boys i know wear ties, especially now goldsmiths gentlemens' society is dead. i'm tragically single but ladies, encourage your men to wear ties and take you out to dinner. do it for me.

new boy obsession

welcome, daniel brühl.

yesterday i watched 'good bye lenin!', SUCH a good film. such an interesting plotline that manages to be moving and funny at the same time, i don't think anyone could not like it (its german and subtitled, get over it).

next films to watch - 'inglourious basterds' and 'the edukators'.

welcome to the jumble

so today me and rob made a trip to the amersham arms for the bi-monthly jumble sale, aptly named 'JUMBLE' where i picked up this crushed velvet night dress for £1. with a couple of snips with my scissors voila, i'm kicking off the velvet christmas, festive non?

then we headed to deptford market where i kicked off my christmas shopping where i made a bold choice of present for somebody who reads this blog ;)

this year, my present to you.

this came out last christmas but i didn't have a blog then. i was aware it because i'm a josh weller fan but paloma faith has made it big this year so its more relevant now anyway, also because i had the pleasure of spotting josh weller at deptford darling at the bunker club in deptford last friday. we had some eye contact.

kids are awesome

this little french girl is called capucine and her mum has made a whole channel of her own here. my personal favourites are how excited she gets opening her mail and the one where she wants to hide from her papa how many sweets she's eaten. argh man i want to have babies with a french man so they can speak french and be as cute as her. failing that i want babies with marshall from 'how i met your mother'.

films i need to see this month

i know time out completely poo-pooed 'nativity' but i think it looks good and a perfect christmas cliché.

and i can't wait for 'a single man' to come out.

very blair waldorf non? they also do adorable knickers, as well as sets of matching knickers and vests, very sexy to cover your love handles and also very practical in the cold weather we're having. i'm wearing a vest and knickers set today for the first time since i turned double figures.
