Hello everyone

29.1.12

Currently experiencing what is probably my third hangover ever. It's kind of horrible, and yet, and yet, and yet, it makes my room seem especially cosy and this porridge taste especially comforting. And it makes writing this blog post and reading seem like the perfect thing to spend my afternoon doing! So there you go.

What to update you on? I'm back in Durham for one thing. It is now officially my home as my parents are off in sunny ol' Sydney for good. But that's fine! Durham may be a little small but it has everything you need, plus Newcastle is only a few minutes away by train. So yes, all is well. I've had massive amounts of work to do but I've taken this week to relax a bit, read some non-law related things and generally pretend I have nothing to do. Feels good. Oh, and yesterday I went to a Burns Night dinner party and had haggis for the first time. For some reason I thought haggis was some kind of horrific offal sausage, but... it wasn't! It was actually really good. I could go for some more right now. But ANYWAY, yesterday I got some outfit pictures for the first time in what feels like ages. I haven't worn something so prissy in a long time. I felt a bit like a walking cream cake. But kind of in a good way.


I love this lion brooch. I got it for £2 from Topman! For some reason the Topman in Durham has a lot of jewellery I like. Much more than the Topshop downstairs, certainly. Very strange indeed. I actually bought my sister five Topman necklaces for Christmas just because they were all so good. ...YEAH.


Now, let me tell you about this dress. It was sent to me by the lovely China Doll Boutique and it is... awesome. It came with a slip which I stupidly forgot to put on, but no matter. It's lovely soft stretchy lace, super comfy and pretty. I will probably wear it a lot when it gets a bit warmer. But for now, luckily it looks febulous with a collared shirt underneath.

Aaand this was Charlie's outfit (the very kind photographer for the afternoon). And also a very nice door. Kind of feel like I should have taken pictures of Palace Green for this post, just because it's so nice. But I didn't, so oh well. Is this a strange way to end a post? I'm not sure. Anyway, goodbye!

    1. They really do! Sometimes it's basically the same as they sell in Topshop only massively cheaper. The other day I bought a necklace in topman for £1, went upstairs to Topshop and they had the same necklace but in gold tone for £8. Horrible of them really haha!
