Just a little something

I read this earlier and it certainly made me realize how much time I waste in a day, but thought it was quite moving and wanted to share it with you. Counting down the hours until I go to London for a few days to visit one of my besties, I have only been to London once and it feels like a completely different world!

Ladies and Gentlemen... I am back, I have returned, I am present in the blogging world once more.

In the past few weeks I have been super busy working all the hours legally allowed at my current job and saving like crazy to move into a flat with my lovely boyfriend and move to his delightful (perhaps?) hometown of Doncaster. And it seems like the days of being a social hermit have paid off as I have somehow managed to save enough money to move and also... GET MYSELF A JOB! Woo! That's not to say that it came easily, since the beginning of this year I have probably applied for nearly 50 even 60 jobs and most of the time I didn't even receive a response. I don't think anyone can predict how hard it really is to find a job (at least a decent one that's full time, with some prospects)after graduation. But anyway, hard work and perseverance pays off if you have faith :) and now I cannot wait for this new chapter of my life to begin!!!
Luke and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary this week and we went out for a (cheap) meal to celebrate :)

Dress: French Connection
Shoes: Miss Selfridge

We decided to be tourists in my hometown of Scarborough for a day. I think the town and the bays are beautiful, but it's incredible how much you take it all for granted when you live here, infact I only really do go to the beach and things when I have a visitor!

The hat that got the cream

So then, whose up for a casual stroll wearing one of these bad boys! After reading about Philip Treacy recently in an article (sorry, I can't remember where!) I have come over all hat obsessed. Personally, I don't even wear your bog standard woolly hat in the winter never mind anything this flamboyant, but I cannot help but admire the shear creativeness and clever aesthetics as seen in these pieces crafted to look as if it were effortless. My personal favorite is the butterfly piece, so much detail and incredibly beautiful (but I also can't help but think that it could make a great light fitting hanging from my ceiling!)

Sugar, Spice and all things nice

So, anyone who knows me will know I have a particular 'thing' about cakes. Funnily enough, I'm not actually that keen on cake, but I LOVE making them! Whilst looking for some inspiration for a close friend's up coming birthday I came across this blog called Jackie's creations and these are possibly some of the best home made designs I have ever seen. I am particularly fond of the Louis (obvz)but my favorite has got to be 'Twin story'. What do you think?

To check out more mouth watering fancies, go to Jackie's blog here to check it out

Came across this amazing shoot with Gwen Stefani from V magazine in 2008, oh how the girl crush intensifies! Lovely to see a slightly edgier, darker side rather than the bubble pop shots of her solo career. Slightly reminiscent of an young Madonna (particularly the cover shot) and, of course, these days one can't help but think anything slightly eccentric/out of the norm/anything in general is Gaga-esque. The Ladies' inspiration perhaps (it was '08!)? Who knows!


It's a Pug life

Thought I'd share some snaps of my fave ickle puggies featured in editorial and on the catwalk (bravo Mulberry). One day I shall own one myself!

Still being a terrible blogger while I sort my life out post-graduation and working an all hour job! Sorry!

Let's get back to business

Top: Debenhams
Skirt: Miss Selfridge
Shoes: Miss Selfridge
Cocktail: Very Berry Jerry!

Oh God, So long since I last posted! So there's been the end of Uni, the Graduation, a holiday, a house sitting adventure and the grand old move home... so much to post about!!! In the mean time, this is what I wore on a night out in Sheffield for one of my friend's 21st. The shoes... The shoes!!! I actually wore them for Graduation originally (6 inch platforms, yes I dared and no I did not fall over!) and they were the comfiest thing ever, I've literally not taken them off!

The happy ending

Bonjourno style twigs! It has been a while since I blogged last, been incredibly busy!! First off I finished uni FOREVER, quite mixed feeling about it all, indeed very relieved and happy that the work side of it has finished but so so sad thinking about going away and leaving what has become my life, and the best damn life it has been indeed! So, I finished on Friday and was greeted by my three very good friends who I lived with for the first two years of uni...

The drinks flowed!! Only not too many as Saturday was the ball!! And what a ball it was! I wore my dress which i previously posted about here, and it's fair to say it wasn't looking particularly pristine by the end of the evening!! Here are a few snaps...

Me and Luke

It really was just the best night ever!!! In other news, I'm now on the job hunt. Me and Luke attended a graduate fair the other day and has turned out to be relatively successful, had some e-mails, a telephone interview (sort of!) and an offer of an actual interview... So far so good!!!
