Hey guys! I'm posting again in under a month, let the celebrations ensue!
I bought these shoes for £2.99 in a charity shop quite near where I live in Sheffield. They are so cute and glittery! I literally couldn't believe my luck when I saw that they were my size, for a couple of weeks before buying these I was looking for some plain red shoes to do a glittery DIY with, but now I don't have to.
(This is me tapping my feet together in a "There's no place like home!" manner)
I wore them with my green tights to channel the Wicked Witch of the East, and the schoolgirl socks (that I actually wore as knee high socks when I was five?!) to channel Dorothy herself. I really want to put together a whole Wizard of Oz inspired outfit, perhaps with a blue gingham dress and my Glinda necklace from this post (and almost every other post ever).
They don't seem like they've ever been worn, they are pretty unscuffed and new looking. I'm going to try an wear them in around the house to stretch them a bit as they are a little stiff and uncomfortable. Very Christmassy though, so I might wear them to trot around the house in a glamourous (and annoying) way.
Happy Christmas!

Candyfloss and sorrys.

Hello guys! It has been almost a month to the day since I last posted on here, and I am SORRY! I AM A TERRIBLE HUMAN PERSON WITH A BLOG. There is no real reason why I haven't, I have just been in a completely different, I don't know, mindset or something since being in Sheffield. But I'm back home now, and will be posting a lot more often!
I bought this skirt a few days before I left for Sheffield in September in Topshop, and I am so in love with it. It feels like wearing a skirt made from pillowy layers of marshmallow or candyfloss, so floaty and ethereal. I LOVE IT. Pastel feminist actualities of wearing pink fluffy things and biting people's heads off. Anyway, yeah, I just really love this skirt! Equally beautiful is the fact that it was £15 reduced from like £38.
The reasons I haven't been blogging that much (or at all, really) while I've been at Sheffield are quite hard to pinpoint. It's a completely different way of living, I cook for myself, take up a lot of time washing, cleaning and shopping for food, and then I have work on top of that so I don't have as much spare time as I used to. Also, it just hasn't really been at the forefront of my mind as I've been trying to, you know, be ~sociable~ and everything with my flatmates and other people. I really do like university, but it is an odd experience. It kind of tiptoes the line between real life, adolescent life and adult life. (If there can even be a line between three things? Whatever). I am taking my camera back with me when I go home in January, so that when I do want to post (and I will), I can. Sorry, must try harder!
Perfect skirt of perfect chiffon perfectness.
I kind of love how long my roots are, I think it's really funny. I'm hoping they make me look a bit like Madonna, or Marina & the Diamonds (she says hopefully). My hair has miraculously gone a white/platinum blonde colour instead of its usual yellow nightmare, which I love. Despite saying how much I love my roots and my hair right now, I'm getting it cut, bleached & dyed this week, so it's goodbye again to this hair for a while.
Blue frilly socks to sort of match the pink frilly skirt. My necklace had flowers on in these exact shades (as well as cream), but unfortunately I didn't get a picture of them as I was in a bit of a hurry. I wore this outfit to meet up with my two best friends from home, which was lovely as we had a really great night. I hadn't seen them both in aeons, so it was brilliant to catch up again. It's wonderful to have people that you can fall right back into step with after such a long time.
