johnny's in the basement, mixing up the medicine.

hello again! i've been going a little stir crazy sat in the house by myself all day doing nothing but revising, and it's starting to get a little old. 
i walked down to the village today to get my hair cut, & i actually really like it! admittedly i was a bit dubious when i first got it cut, mainly because the mousse the hairdresser used makes my hair curl like crazy & when i got home i looked like a cross between bob dylan circa 1965 & little orphan annie. but i am used to this happening with my ridiculous mop, & frankly i was just pleased to finally get it cut, seeing as i haven't had that done since february!
i also thought i'd take this opportunity to show you a few new things i've acquired lately;
please forgive my case of the bitch face, i'm chronically tired at the moment! i put it down to revising & staying up too late to read the axe murder scene in crime & punishment (dostoevsky, loving it already).
so, yeah. the cardigan i bought from tesco a couple of weeks ago, the first time i've bought clothing from there actually, and in a size 14 because that was the only size left.
i have always loved bird print, & swallow print in particular, but until now i have never actually owned anything in that print, surprisingly enough.
now, when i was getting dressed this morning, my mind went; swallows - birds - doves - peace - john lennon - i must wear my john & yoko tshirt today!
this necklace has always been one of my favourites, sort of tacky but sort of lovely at the same time.
the skirt is also new, & i haven't really posted about it on here (although i did wear it in this post). i didn't buy it however, my friend joanna gave it to me because she was having a bit of a clear out i think, & i was pretty pleased as i was actually there when she bought it & thought it was pretty nice! the pattern is pretty ethereal & awesome, & i have loads of blue things for it to go with.
cardigan - tesco, tshirt - matalan, skirt - gift, necklace - afflecks palace, hair flowers - h&m, sgt pepper badge - gift.
i totally love that my hair gets a bit more textured when it's shorter, & i thought for a bit of a change i'd put two hair flowers in instead of one. i quite like the look actually, & the colours are pretty nice together.
goodbye for now! good luck to those who have exams this week, mine start soon, eek.


  1. LOVE this outfit so much, I can't believe they sell such cute clothes in a supermarket of all places! Also, I really love your hair this way, it looks so pretty with the flower clips :)

    If you're interested, I'm selling all of my clothes and I'm happy to ship internationally.

  2. Woah, cuteness. I've always wanted short, curly hair but don't have the guts to get the perm required.
