brb, Los Angeles

I'm all packed and ready for two weeks in LA. I've waited six months for this trip and I'm so excited! There are so many things I plan on doing and seeing, but if you have any other recommendations let me know. I might attempt a bit of mobile blogging, or I'll try and get on Sams macbook.

smile now, cry later

 dress: H&M
shoes: new look
bag: avon
watch: red herring
rings: ebay, primark

I’ve spent all night giving my blog a bit of a revamp when I should really be packing for LA - I go on Tuesday! I hope you like the new design. I haven’t made any wild changes because if I’m honest I’m not sure what I’m doing, so if any of you are any good at that sort of thing, it would be great to get some help. When I get back from LA I am going to sit down and re work the whole page. I seemed to know more about HTML when I was about 14 on MySpace than I do now.

I bought the dress on Monday in the H&M sale. I tried it on during my lunch break and was going to put it back. I don’t know what it is about it that I’m not keen on; whenever I saw it at full price I liked it. I got it anyway and ended up wearing it to a funeral on Tuesday where the dress code was ‘colour’. It is quite a flattering shape, although it does have an annoying fit on the shoulders. For less than £15 though I can’t complain.

the girl with the pearl collar

 top: H&M
skirt: topshop
flat forms: n
ew look
rings: primark, accessorize

I tried the top on with so many different bottoms before settling with my pink skirt. It is definitely one of my favourite blouses at the moment. I wore it to work and I got so many customers asking where it was from. They were shocked when I said H&M and I kindly pointed them in the right direction (bit of cheeky advertising). It worked anyway; I think I sold two during my shift.

given half a chance

 dress: H&M
jacket: ebay
necklace: primark
shoes: primark
rings: H&M
nails: barryM

This was a look from the Queen’s jubilee last week, hence the tacky nails. We had to wear white on top to work, I don’t know whether it was jubilee related or just to try out a sort of uniform, but I thought I’d wear my white dress on the Monday considering I don’t own that much white.

I don’t know why I’ve been so absent the past week. Apart from me working almost every day over the holiday I really haven’t done anything of any importance. I did come down with something on Sunday (one of my days off - unlucky!) And I’ve spent most of this week recovering. I can always tell when my immune system is a bit run down because I get cold sores, but I’ve feeling much better now, and a lot less lethargic.

red, white, blue

playsuit & belt: primark
shoes: primark
sunglasses: H&M
watch: red herring

Not a lot has been happening this week, apart from me working every day. My family have gone away for the week to visit my Nan and Grandad in Hull, so the house is lovely and peaceful on my own with five less people in it.

I wore this playsuit last week when the Olympic torch came to town. I thought I’d fit with the Union Jack and stick with the red, white and blue. It is definitely my favourite playsuit, and the shorts are so flattering, even though the crotch creases after 2 minutes of wear because of the material it’s made of, but the little cute duck print makes up for it!
