In which I get foody 2

A photo diary of good food, from the last MONTH (I know.. slacker right?) If food doesn’t interest you, then I suggest you skip this post! China china (Preston street)  Perfect for cheap but GOOD Chinese food, and normally I am in the minority when eating here, so if the local Chinese student contingent swarm this place, I reckon its good! Amazing healthy buffet at Foodilic on North Street Amazing roast chicken at the Caxton Arms, my local. Everything is homemade and nothing is frozen at this place & less…

In which I explore Norfolk & take pictures

Dress: Newlook concession,Love. Boots: Newlook. Cardi(again): Peacocks Nice big back garden, fiancés mums, itchy eyes, models own. I would never normally buy a white dress, but I bought this back in the summer to wear to a friends 30th, and forgot about it, I especially like the little shoulder ties. It came with a fabric belt in the same material, but I wore the trusty primark horse belt. Are you sick of seeing this bloody cardigan yet? I wore this for a trip to Holt, a lovely little village in…

In which I dress up for a NYE spent on the sofa

Dress: Topshop Shoes: Purple Suede snakeskin wedges,  Newlook The dress clearly needs an iron, but a) I rarely iron, and b) it had been in my weekend bag and flung in the back of the car. If we were actually going OUT out I would’ve, I’m no skank!! It is a black fine net over a cream under lining, with an elasticated diagonal waist, that you cant really see here, as stuck a belt from a pair of H&M shorts with it. The shoes were a bargain £9 in the…

In which I organise my makeup collection

Just before Christmas I had a sudden urge to sort out and clean all my makeup out. It was previously cluttering up my dresser top and was stored in various cases and boxes and tubs. I emptied it all onto the floor of the living room and got to it… with the help of my friend Carla, who made me clear out stuff that I had had for too long… The extent of it, minus whatever is in various handbags   Lippy (I rarely wear anything on my lips, so…

In which show you my past and present hair

I’ve got the finest hair ever (apart from a new born baby/really old lady I guess..) Its in awful condition & I have the odd stray grey hair (I KNOW, I’m too young!) Currently the ends are blondey and the top is my natural dark brown (I could say chestnut or auburn, bit I would be lying. It is brown) Because the bottom half has been bleached and then toned a few times its obviously not in good nick, but I find someone to trim the ends for me (the…

In which I go to the Ballet

On the 22nd December I went to see Peter Schaufusses Nutcracker, which was a (very) contemporary take on the traditional ballet. I Danced from 3 until 21, and only really gave up because I didn’t want to do it professionally and don’t like small children enough to teach them, (I did help out at my school though sometimes) and living in Brighton meant spending money on rent and not competition fees, costumes and ridiculous amounts of pointe shoes. I love to watch live dance shows, and it always makes me…

In which I get festive!

A Christmas Day stroll… Brighton pavilion & pier. A little picture post of my Christmas. Midnight Mass – at the tallest parish church in England (built to the dimensions of the Ark, supposedly) There was huge fight at the end of the service, swearing and punches being thrown, this really common looking and very drunk clan of people were so out of order its untrue! A plate of pottery christmas shapes in a shop window on the way home (& me with not a scrap of makeup on due to…

In which I Suffer (and wear shorts)

Shorts – Primark Top – Topshop Cardigan – Peacocks Wooly headband – Primark Normally I change the buttons on anything from primark, but these are little bows, which I approve of, they did however come with braces, which I didn’t approve of, they were attached at the front, and buttoned at the back, they got snipped off sharpish! (excuse slippers!)   Wore this earlier in the week for a Christmas Drink with my old flatmate. These shorts are in a size eight. I am not a size eight, so if…

In which I buy an unsuitable jacket

Jacket –  H by henry Holland (website) Dress – Rare via ASOS Lace body – Primark Leggings – topshop midget section shoes – primark? maybe (I know they don’t really go but I have hardly any shoes that fit anymore due to the great shoe size shrinkage of 2011) scarf – camden somewhere or other   The dress has pockets (LOVE dresses with pockets) and tiny gold stud detailing round the neckline and pockets, and a tie at the back. I’ve lost weight since I got this so the top…
