To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again.

Hiya! It's been a week since I last posted, oh no! I am so rubbish, but I'll explain why later!
Bit of an impromptu outfit post today! I went out for afternoon tea to celebrate a friend's birthday, and I originally planned to wear something else entirely (my vintage ebay dress which I will post about soon, I promise!) but it was really cold & windy today so I quickly threw this on instead. Nothing fancy really, this dress has become my can't-be-bothered wardrobe staple. I've worn it so many times recently! Also, sorry for the umpteenth appearance of this headscarf on this blog, sorry! What can I say, I'm a creature of habit.
dress - dorothy perkins, cardigan - charity shop, belt - free with a pair of trousers, brooch - gift, necklace - vintage, headcarf - vintage.
Really don't know what I'm doing with my arm here! Awkward pose is awkward. My hair is very funny looking here, it's become almost a magenta colour. Very strange. 
I also did a bit of cat eye eyeliner today, for the first time in a blue moon. I really love the look, just need to get some more practice and a less wobbly arm so I can do it more often.
I've been feeling so down lately. Just out of ideas and inspiration for everything. I got rejected by Durham on Wednesday as well, which didn't help. Hopefully I will get out of this mist soon.
PS. I'm having a sale over in my shop, almost half of my stock is 10% or 20% off, so please have a little look if you have the time.


  1. LOVE your hair this colour. Really suits your complexion :)

  2. that dress is lovely! be careful, if i knew where you lived (and had the figure to wear it and not look like a stuffed goose), I'd break into your wardrobe at night and steal it. ;) seriously: it's totally adorable!
    i love your outfits, they're really special and you have a unique style! i adore that!

    sorry for my ignorance, but what is "durham"? (when it comes to rejections, though, i know how you feel; i want to be an author for almost ten years now and so far, i have been rejected by close to thirty publishers... :P nyah, but that shouldn't keep us from doing what we love to do! you're a great person and you will get the appreciation you deserve sooner than you think. ;)


    1. Oh thank you so much!
      Durham is one of the universities I've applied to. That's true, I think I've kind of got my head around it now!


the wrote and the writ.
