jelly and marmite

Who remembers these classics from childhood? While visiting Manchester last weekend I decided it was the perfect place to release my inner child and whack out these babies... SPARKLY JELLY SHOES WITH A HEEL! And while everyone up North seemed to love them, some of my friends back home were a little less impressed with my choice of footwear. But love them or hate them, at £6 a pair, even I can afford to be a bit experimental.
(From Primark, of course.)

red lips even for lidl

As a girl that's very dubious about lipstick - especially the bright red kind - I think I have finally found something! The fact that it's more like a felt tip pen than a beauty product makes it v easy to apply (all those years of colouring in as a child have finally come into good use) AND its scarily durable. No matter how many shots or snogs, you can be sure that this sucker wont be smothered over your face, friends and wine glass after only a few minutes. An absolute essential on a  night out, it never lets me down. If only the same could be said about you, vodka. We need to talk.

 'Maxfactor Lipfinity Longlasting Lip Tint'. I use '09 Passion Red'.

car < chiffon

this summer i (hope) to spend lazy days lounging in lots and lots of chiffon! the idea of mixing it with leather accessories like belts and buckles will probably overpower my plans to save for a car. but we shall seeee

counting down the days til freedom

this blog has become a little crap. what with the weather, work, school and ultimately my lack of camera and free-time, all i ever feel like now is cuddling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a movie. blogging is one of those things that you can start to hate very quickly if it becomes a chore, and i hate hate HATE it when people post stuff just to post stuff (you get me?). so to sum up this very long and pointless essay.. bare with me guys!
jan 18th 2011 marks my first day of total relaxation and after that, it will be back to normality :)
have a happy xmas!
