It's the little details...

some close up shots of my room at university.
1.my precious moleskine, flower enamel necklace, the bow ring I never quite managed to give back to Kim 2.A framed photograph from Newquay this year in ornate black Paperchase frame, my Newquay 2011 wristband, and a scented reed diffuser in the background 3.Calvin Klein Beauty perfume and white tin tealight holder 4.Pretty bunting from one of my favourite shops, New England Store in Worcester 5.Pillows on my bed including my Beatles pillow, which is so comfy but I feel that Paul McCartney judges me as I flail around doing my exercise dvd... 6. the dreamcatcher I've had since I was about ten! Its from the Native american bit of Epcot, Florida 7.Well worn New Look moccasins and the paper bag I keep uni work in (got it from the freshers fair even though I'm not a fresher, cheeky) What can I say I'm a sucker for cute typography 8. Elle, my academic diary organiser and black/gold Skullcandy lowrider headphones 9.A wicker basket (you have no idea how many of these I have in my room...) and a couple of my ever growing pile of Vogue UK..I love to stack them. Its not my fault that they are beautiful enough to incorporate into decor!

A little tribute to two of my favourite pretty blogs, Ciao Domenica and This Is Glamourous
I don't know when I turned into an old lady, but recently have got really into cosy interiors, home baking and decorating! 
Coveting Le Creuset cookware and Mason Cash mixing bowls.
Loving anything berry coloured, honey and almond porridge and pumpkin pie.
Must be autumn setting in.


from the picture my mind drew, i know i'd look good on you

I have very veeeerry thick hair, and if I'm not careful the sheer weight of it makes it go flat. Flatlined. Even when it's short. 
So the other day I used my carefully hoarded Boots points to treat myself to Charles Worthington Volume Blow Dry Spray. I liked the shampoo from this range so thought I'd give it a go and holy cow it actually works. I don't know how it would perform on hair that's flat because it's thin, but for hair that's flat because it's heavy bish bash bosh jobs a goodun. 
Have any of you tried it?

BIG LOVE (and big hair.) x

I ♡ knitwear...

...don't you?



more inanimate than amateur

could I just say that this is my favourite website? and that you should browse it whilst wearing something fancy and consuming an entire cheesecake. Envious facial expression optional.


my my my, what have we here

wow woah well wouldja look at that, it's been almost three months since I posted on here.
here are some photos of me pulling faces and ting.

I would not be surprised if there are none of you lovely readers left, but those of you that have stuck around  thankyouuu for remaining subscribed, I shall lob some content at ya very shortly

The last few months of summer were spent soaking up the lingering last rays of evening sunshine, wandering through the Yorkshire countryside, eating far too many of my mothers peanut butter cupcakes and generally wasting time in the best ways possible.
Since moving back down to Pompadomp a month ago I have moved into a beautiful (not visually, but in soul) terraced house with four brilliant housemates and despite the second year workload piling up I can already tell that its gonna be a good year. Those of you that have been reading my blog for more than a year will know I had a rough old time of it as a fresher but all that is changing ohh yeaahh

I'm gonna make these blog posts brief but regular, (hopefully with lots of pictures, be they photobooth or not, and I'll still use it to pile up arty things I like) and even if nobody reads them it will be nice to prove to myself that I don't always give up on everything ;)

Hope youre all well, I have of course been reading blogs as regularly as ever all summer
