I've got a heart full of soul

Wednesday, 29 January 2014

Today has been one of the slowest days of the year so far. I blame having Physics first lesson...it's hardly motivation for the day. I seem to have survived though, despite being rained on several times and having to dodge multiple ping-pong balls in P.E, and am now looking forward to a nice evening in sewing up some samples for my Textiles coursework and watching the new Outnumbered which is on TV later. I loved the old series and hope they manage to make it work, even with the actors being much older.

Please excuse my lack of good quality photos - the rain has not made shooting very easy however I do intend to make up for it with some better ones this weekend. This outfit was from Monday...I was feeling very autumnal (what a surprise) and felt like whipping out my comfy old cardigan I bought from Clothes Show Live last year. I wore it with a shirt from Blitz, tights from H&M, dress from Camden Passage and shoes from Clothes Show. The shoes are adorable and incredibly granny-ish, however they are not very practical for winter as they are absolutely freezing.

In other news, my hamster Elvis is doing well...we've had him for just over a week now and he is really starting to settle in, although as you can see he still can't hold still for pictures very well.
I also got some old film developed, and as is my resolution to post twice a week I may as well show them to you now, even though they are a little jumbled (but then again so is this entire post).

1) The room we stayed in on our one-night Geography field trip to Guildford 2) Pretty lights on during the day in Oxford 3&4) On Boxing Day my family and I went on an early morning walk around Exmouth Market and it was really tranquil and quiet and I found a cool bike

1-4) I turned 16 in November last year and had a really awesome day, finished off with an amazing chocolate orange marble cake in the shape of a record from the fabulous Coco's Cakes

1) My cousin & I on my birthday 2) I had a sort of slumber party thing with my friends, which of course meant Clueless and a pick and mix cake 3) We discovered a diner in France that sold the most incredible passionfruit milkshakes

I apologise for the fact that this post made absolutely no sense whatsoever...I will be back to more structured blogging soon I promise.
In the meantime, I hope you are having a good week,
