Babysittter to the Prime Minister's tortoise.

So this week has been manic.
But I'll start where I left off, Wednesday we went out, and it was Mexican night!
Yup, I've no idea where they get these themes from...but they do come up with some odd ones.
Unfortunately, I didn't dig out my sombrero or poncho, but lots of other people did! It's not free to get in if you're in fancy dress anymore so we don't bother. However it is hilarious to see everyone else's costumes! So many people took it so seriously, and was head to toe Mexican. It's even funnier when you know them haha, one of my friends dressed up and it was really difficult to keep a straight face whilst talking to him! 
As I mentioned in my last post, Tuesday night didn't go to plan - but even more so that someone stamped on my foot really hard. Which at the time I didn't think too much about, as I was looking after my friend. But then the next morning discovered a very cut up foot staring at me, so I dressed it appropriately and got on with it...however Wednesday bought more foot drama! As it was so packed, lots of people were being pushed about - and someone landed on my foot,  cue pain.
So I hobbled about for the rest of the night, and managed to get a piggyback off a very drunk guy (he lives in my building and is best friends with my flatmate, so not a complete stranger!) and have had a poorly foot since!
Also on Wednesday night, I got hit in the face! Yeah, I wish I knew why too. He even knew us! He was walking past, literally hit me. Zara then swore at him, he turned around - shrugged and swore back and stormed off! Charming. It didn't leave a mark and didn't hurt after a few hours. But still wasn't pleasant.
Anyway, this is what I wore:

Top: Primark? I got it for Christmas :)
Shorts: Primark
Belt: Came with other trousers
Tights: Morrisons

Thursday and Friday are more relaxing days, as I've only got a 2hr lecture on Thurs, but that meant plenty of time for assignments and revising for my exam! Yaay. It's ridiculous the amount of things they put on at the same time, in very short time scales. In fact, I should be working right now. But I've been neglecting blogging like crazy!

On Saturday I went to 'Pure'. If you've been reading a while, you'll know I'm a Christian, and it's a massive part of my life. So 'Pure' was a day about Sex and Relationships. It was actually really interesting and I learnt a lot. But that was my Saturday.
 Saturday night I worked the cloakroom for a student club, last time I did it, we made £108, so 108 coats to hang up/take money etc. Last night, we had 17. It was a quiet night!!
On the plus side, I had a drunk guy to keep me company who's planning on becoming Prime Minister and he was telling me his policies. And once I told him I didn't understand politics too well, he told me I could look after his pet tortoise whilst he was busy running the country! Demoted from being part of the cabinet to tortoise babysitter haha! ...and then he spilt his drink on me, I was sticky.

An OOTD for you :)

Dress: H&M
Cardigan: Peacocks
Tights : Generic black tights
And I curled my hair cause there was no other way to control the mess on my head!

I hope you're all well :)
