Vomit pink

Hello! I'm trying to get back into blogging again, and now I'm on reading week I have a little more time than usual to fit it in, which is good! I also have quite a few deadlines flying about, and lots of things to do, but here we are! I bought a jumper from H&M last week, and I thought I would show you my favourite outfit I've put it with so far;
(Sorry for the slightly poor image quality! My good camera, tripod & remote are all at home.)
This, strangely, is a very H&M-centric outfit, the jumper, skirt & blouse are all from there, although I did get the blouse in a charity shop!
The jumper is so cute! It's a pale pink with blue, green, yellow and darker pink glittery threads running through it, and it is the perfect accompaniment to my Glinda necklace!
H&M skirt, buttons changed by me.
My hair is such a funny colour now, I think the shampoo I washed it with yesterday washed some of the colour out & made it go a bit yellowy, which kind of sucks as I was hoping the purple would last until December. It does go very well with my pom pom headband though!
Embroidery DIY detail.
1. I have joined the uni women's magazine, which sounds really amazing! I've had to send off a 500 word piece for them about "switching seasons" for fashion, and the entertainment team want a little paragraph about what my favourite song says about me. The fashion piece was a bit tricky as I basically just wear the same things all year round with slightly thicker tights on, but I think it went alright. The editor is so lovely & she seems to really like me, which is brilliant! She writes for a music magazine & I was talking to her about bands & happened to mention my favourite band (Slow Club) were from Sheffield, and she seemed really interested, I think we might even be doing a piece with them, and maybe AN INTERVIEW which would be so cool, except I'm not sure if I would be getting that, but fingers crossed! Woops, long sentence is long.
2. I'm hopefully going to be re-opening my shop in a couple of weeks for the Christmas trade, I will let you all know when that happens! I'm really looking forward to it as I miss my little trips to the Post Office.
3. I'm going to a vintage hair & make up tutorial session tomorrow with the Burlesque Society, which will hopefully be amazing! I'm really hoping to learn how to roll my fringe under (a la Betty bangs), I'm so excited! Two of my friends are coming up this weekend & we're going to a big burlesque show, which will be really cool! I might try & take some pictures (:
See you soon.

    1. If you mean my necklace, no I didn't! I bought it about three years ago from a boutiquey shop in Affleck's Palace in Manchester. I really wish I'd bought the whole range at the time!
