style crisis

30th October 2011
Hat – My step mums closet – Vintage Peter Pan Collar shirt – American Apparel (for sale) Bow – DIY House of Fraser Haberdashery  Dress – H&M Boots – H&M Bag – Bayswater Mulberry     Good evening all! I’ve not had as productive Sunday as I had hoped but I’m blogging so that’s the main thing. I went out in town last night for the first time in 2 weeks and as it always seems to be recently, it wasn’t anything extraordinary…I’m not quite sure what it is but certainly I know it’s not the company, I love my friends. But I’m just not enjoying nights out the way that I used to and I’m certainly not enjoying being drunk…am I growing up? The thing with me is I like going places that have live bands and new talent. I’d definitely say I’m more at home in a dingy pub with a glass of wine and some real music than in some over priced bars with girls vomiting over themselves. Something needs to give because I can’t not socialize that’s for sure. I’m also having a bit of a style crisis, this happens when I’m not working in a store (I physically cant at the moment with my uni work load) I take a lot of inspiration from the places I work and really identify my style better. It also stops impulse buys because I have a good few hours to think a purchase through. Like the other day I stupidly walked into Topshop intending to buy a coat from the sale but instead I walked out with a £110 pound Gilet byThe Ragged Priest concession…I loved it but it was a stupid thing to do and when the buttons fell off it went straight back to the shop.

Good evening all!
I’ve not had as productive Sunday as I had hoped but I’m blogging so that’s the main thing.
I went out in town last night for the first time in 2 weeks and as it always seems to be recently, it wasn’t anything extraordinary…I’m not quite sure what it is but certainly I know it’s not the company, I love my friends. But I’m just not enjoying nights out the way that I used to and I’m certainly not enjoying being drunk…am I growing up? The thing with me is I like going places that have live bands and new talent. I’d definitely say I’m more at home in a dingy pub with a glass of wine and some real music than in some over priced bars with girls vomiting over themselves. Something needs to give because I can’t not socialize that’s for sure.

I’m also having a bit of a style crisis, this happens when I’m not working in a store (I physically cant at the moment with my uni work load) I take a lot of inspiration from the places I work and really identify my style better. It also stops impulse buys because I have a good few hours to think a purchase through. Like the other day I stupidly walked into Topshop intending to buy a coat from the sale but instead I walked out with a £110 pound Gilet byThe Ragged Priest concession…I loved it but it was a stupid thing to do and when the buttons fell off it went straight back to the shop. I think that was a sign.

I also ended up taking a Pleather skirt back to H&M which I loved more than anything and it took me forever to find but a size 8 was just too big and although I had every intention to have the skirt taken in….I knew deep down it would just sit in my wardrobe with its tags still on looking at me guiltily, So i exhcnaged it for this gorgeous snake print dress which will look beautiful with a cute little jumper over the top when it starts to get colder.

Before I sign off and head over to my life long friend Bruno’s gig at the Shisha Garden in Northampton I wanted to share this beautiful blog I recently found and am Obsessed with (aswell as the girl that writes it) unfortunately Northampton isn’t blessed with the London standard of charity shops otherwise I’d be giving this girl a race to every store ha-ha http://jazzabellesdiary.blogspot.com

Ciao for now

Everything feels a little more optimistic as March begins don’t you think?
It’s the start of spring in my book Evergreen shortly followed by the spring equinox so there’s ample time to prepare, nest and refresh. 
The light returns, hello March 🌱
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 🌱
