what to make of this?

i can't decide if paul and joe's new cat lipstick is completely adorable or verging on a little strange. if they did one with a bunny, on the other hand...

granny chic

i have heard the term granny chic banded around recently, and have seen countless knit cardigans and dropped hem skirts lately, but it was not until this morning that i really encountered a truly chic granny. i could definitely draw inspiration from her pearly pink cable knit cardi, floral print blouse, and even her high waisted trousers, but what i found truly charming about her ensemble was a long pendant necklace complete keys! forget about a dainty little key charm from tiffanys, next time i hit the town, i know i'll be sure not to get locked out of the house!

back in the swing

this past week has been a whirlwind of homecoming from france, diy around the house and a major overhaul of my 14-year-old self's bedroom. i am in love with my new, 'grown up' room, conveniently finished a month before i move out. at least i still have a few weeks to enjoy it before i am thrust back into the 'big smoke'!

as for now, i can tell i've settled back into my daily routine, purely because of the fact that i have already ordered my next hit, in the shape of a bling bling boyfriend watch. it has to be said, i often quite openly wish i was a chav, and this little number is going to bring me that much closer to my longed-for identity. sadly, i won't be rocking a full tracksuit just yet.

i am keen to point out though, the rise of the 'boyfriend'. first it was stealing your other half's shirt...which has evolved into actual men's clothing made for women - the boyfriend jeans, the boyfriend blazer, the boyfriend cardigan and, now, the boyfriend watch. have a great little selection and i'm looking forward to the postman's arrival on monday. i also splashed out on asos premier - free next day delivery for an entire year, plus first-looks at new collection and sale items, at the discounted price of £14.95 until the end of august. definitely worth it.
