Odds and Ends.

Attempting to get back in the blogger seat, whilst doing 2 assignments, revising for 3 exams and have a life..yeah it's not going great haha.

I'm very grateful for all you lot who have sympathised about my awful date last week, it was horrific and I'm glad I seem to entertain you with my dating life...my friends seem to enjoy it too!

Anyway, I was a very fortunate winner in Rachel's (http://sweet--rachel.blogspot.com/) giveaway :D
I won a cupcake cookbook and I'm so looking forward to trying out the recipes. 
hello more procrastination.
As I'm in uni halls atm, all my most goes to the security centre and then we pick it up- so when I went to check whether my cookbook had arrived, I also got another package. Not gonna lie - getting post makes my week, cause nobody ever sends me anything...so to have 2 parcels was very exciting!
I ripped them open (well, wouldn't you?!) and I found my cookbook and a parcel from my parents!
They'd sent me 'Narnia: Voyage of the dawntreader' with a note saying "Saw this and thought of you".
Day/week/month made.


(I know it says rental viewing only, they bought it 2nd hand from blockbusters)

I would also like to share a new love with you, a pair of really old denim shorts.
I bought them when I was like 13/14 to go on holiday and then never wore them afterwards and they somehow managed to get to uni with me. I've only started to wear them in the past few weeks but have discovered I love them! I do have another pair of darker ones which are just cut up jeans, and they're less comfy but share the love <3 
So a couple OOTD including them :)


I am aware I look incredibly rough in these, but they were both taken at the end of the day, and I was exhausted haha
L-R
Demin shorts- Romford market (I've bought the most random things there!)
Leggings- Tesco/H&M
Top - was in a goody bag from Varsity (the bar) and was miles too big, so I cut and sewed it into something I'd wear- the back has their drink offers on haha.
Vest- Peacocks
Cardigan- Peacocks.
Necklace - Avon

Denim Shorts- Romford Market
Leggings- Tesco/H&M
Jumper- Charity shop
Necklace - A present

Although I'm sure you all know of this fab blog already.
However if you don't, I was interviewed by the lovely Rachael of Island Girl Insights, if you'd like to take a peek and look at my answers, let me know what you think :)

On a completely different note- I was called a "Little Red Riding Hood skank" by a homeless man earlier. I was so offended!!
(I was wearing a red coat)

How are you lovely lot?

  6. What? A homeless man was making fun of your coat? That seems so weird...
    And your parents are so sweet to send you a little gift in the mail! I love opening my mailbox and finding surprises!
    Oh, and now I want a cupcake. Darn it!
