the last ever episode was on tv today & i had a really nice time watching that, it was sad but it made me feel all happy & stuff.
yes alright, it doesn't look all that appetising. but it was really nice! made me feel all healthy too, which i really need to feel more as i didn't really pay much attention to the doctor's orders =S
also, the weather perked up a little bit before (and then it rained buckets!) so i decided, briefly, to break out the summer clothes.
vest: h&m. i love this top, you can't really see on the photo, but it has little black hearts on it.
skirt: topshop. i looooove this skirt! had my eye on it for ages but it was too expensive, then i finally bought it last week in the sales. the zip is a bit dodgy, but i love the floaty sticky-outyness of it.

i haven't listened to it yet as my record player lives at my dad's house & i'm not there at the moment, but i'm contemplating buying one that i can keep at my mum's house, so therefore i can listen to records here as well. i mean, i've got my ipod speakers, but it just isn't the same thing is it?
i'm already a pretty big fan of bruce so i know i won't be disappointed by the record, & one of the songs on it is already a favourite of mine (spirit in the night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Iwz5uslQEM) so i know it's going to be pretty damn awesome - and i know, especially after watching bruce at glastonbury (sadly from the comfort of my own home), that guy does a fabulous live show.

although, one of the main things in buddhism is no material possessions, and hard as i try i highly doubt i could do that. you see, sometimes people just need nice things to make themselves feel better - this is where the more cheery aspect (hopefully!) of this post comes in.
going clockwise from the top left: be on your merry way carousel necklace, drip drip drop little april showers earrings, letter to my love necklace, summertime valentine eiffel tower necklace, a grand day out bicycle necklace, under lock & key eccentric edition.
the other website i found is more of an arty website called https://www.redvelvetart.com/. it's got loads of really cute crafts & things on it, i especially love the vintage paper pack (https://www.redvelvetart.com/craft/vintage-paper) and the bows (https://www.redvelvetart.com/accessories/limeandwhitepolkadot-bow). god help me, i love bows.
anyway, i hope that cheers everyone up a bit :)

(yes, i'm an addict and i am not ashamed to admit it.)
i had the most AMAZING time ever! seriously it was just fantastic, i stayed in the hard day's night hotel & went on 2 beatles tours; the magical mystery tour & another tour where we actually went inside john lennon & paul mccartney's childhood houses. i cannot believe i've actually been there, it was just so cool! and bob dylan was there 3 weeks ago, EEK!
anyway, i think i bought a few too many things. as i inevitably always do. but they were pretty damn awesome things! i'll stick a few pictures of them up in a bit, there's some which i may transform into some jewellery - specifically my souvenir penny (yes, i am just that cool).
in the mean time, here's a few shots from the tours:
