close your eyes and cut…

16th December 2011
  Necklace – Topshop Dress – DIY H&M Leather Jacket – Topshop boutique Fur Stole – Asos Shoes – Office via eBay I think you should all know that I am now freeeeee from university for the christmas holidays…well kinda, I should really be doing dissertation but I may use my time in Verbier for that (obviously when I’m not skiing or snowboarding). So seeing as I handed in all my assignments on Wednesday I felt it rude not to go out and celebrate but I had an absolute nightmare trying to find a dress, Inlovewithfashion.com sent me the most beautiful dress the other day but I seriously couldn’t bring myself to wear it to a student night, it’s far too gorgeous for that so I took a little inspiration from it instead. I came so close to spending £48 on a dress in Topshop that I didn’t really want, Until the brainwave came to me, I’d seen this dress in H&M for £14.99 which I can totally justify spending, but the length was AWFUL on me. After checking the hem of the layers I realised I could rectify this so off I went. I decided I was going to give the dress a “mini” drop back hem, which meant it could be as short as I like (I love a batty rider) in the front and then I’d be ok with the length in the back because it would make the dress a little bit quirky. I didn’t really have time to measure and stuff so I just sorta grabbed the nearest white eye liner and drew a even line up to the point I felt the hem should sit, said a little prayer and cut. I had visions of it going hideously wrong but I was pretty happy […]

I had visions of it going hideously wrong but I was pretty happy with the results….just not with the overall warmth factor of the dress ha-ha when did I become such an old woman??

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
