Saw these occupiers camping out in St Pauls square they have been there for 100 days! - thought it was pretty impressive and pretty crazy this is going on right on our doorstep

Had a quick trip to the Tate Modern, saw with a friend that came down from Glasgow which was larvley, the Poetry and Dream Exhibition was fantastic - love Joan Mitchell! I also thought the instillation was incredible- the picture doesn't do it justice, it was huge but really fragile and elegantly done. It was meant to be bolt of lightening... stood and stared at that one for quite awhile.
I ended going straight to Woodford (first trip to essex oo-er) and celebrated chinese new year with a MASSIVE order of chinese takeaway with a few friends - I think the chinese have got it right, certainly when it comes to food!

Brick Lane Booze & Food

My mental friend Alice enjoying her pina colado. Was going to get a piccy of the Mexican restaurant we popped into to refuel - had some AMAZING nachos but we had to escape quickly for not paying service charge- err compulsory?? NO

Was totally worth it- these were what all nachos should taste like

"Malibu Beach"
mmm ..makes me think of sun and sand

Had a sneaky pint at Vibe Bar in Brick Lane - major 'cool' hotspot real nice seating outside and inside open all day, centre of Brick Lane and £4  pints - best!

My amazong flatmates Sonam and Emily

Me and Sonam on the way to shoreditch - had the best night out we've all had in awhile definitely recommend it - we will deffs be going back. Loads of really cool bars and places to dance and drink and chat and all in walking distance of each other- finally! Just head to Old street and your sorted lookout for TRAFFIC and CONCRETE and THE BOOK CLUB those were are faves...okay v.hungover from extensive beer consumption so I'm going to go locate something with nutella on then snuggle with Sonam for a day under the duvet - I'm sure portobello market will wait x

Long Blues

Rifling through old pictures and i kinda miss my hair.. what do you think - to grow or not to grow?


Had a few pints down at the local for open mic night, one of our friends does gigs around London so we went to cheer him on. The Globes on Mile End rd. and always packed with students if you fancy a cheap pint and a chat! Note for a thursday, must be intoxicated to deal with the hour wait to be served, however the smoking area (the road) serves as a nice breather but you may get honked at and shoved around a little bit by big burly bouncers but its aall cool -the barman's really fit

Got this skirt in the sale, pretty good for £20, sort of stiff woollen material, bit prom-ish so i wore with my baggy grey and denim

 Love this shoot from RUSSH - a lot of flimsy and delicate pieces, definitely channelling the Chloe S/S 12 collection, here are some pieces in my wardrobe I will definitely be wearing this S/S

Cant wait till it gets to summer so i
can start wearing these beauties I'm not too
sure with tights?
Purple: Topshop
Pink: RiverIlsand

This is a favourite and goes with everything


Bought this the other day.. WATTA BEAUTY is all I can say

Thinking it will go wonderfully with my post-christmas sparkle skirt
So glad i caught this in the last to buy section - v.v.happy

Topshop sale wasn't half bad, trifled through and found some fabster finds here are a few
This blazer which i tried on at full price £75 (no thanks) went down to £35 - perf! Will be fab in summer with a white pleated dress (cricket style esque?)

As I'm working to bring brights in to my wardrobe and as it looks like colours going to be huge this S/S this skirt was basically a v.orange dream and the flowery lace just adds a bit of a quirky edge
Went to the till £15 - errrr you sure?

Sadly this wasn't a sale purchase but it was too beautiful. Fancied a tea dress for a while and the colour and fit of this one is to die for. Thought it went pretty nicely with my linen blazer
Blazer: Topshop

Now this was an excellent find. Still considering if it will be worth when thinking about how often i will wear it BUT I don't have anything this cool in my wardrobe
plus the leather feels like butter which is a pretty nice
Gilet £75 (hoping it was reduced from a hefty lot more)
Also this galaxy tee was quite cool so i popped him in the basket too
Tee: £22

Another bright achievement, more orange but pleasantly cosy

Tee: Topshop (SALE)
Cardi: Topshop
Skirt: AmericanApparel 
Another sale item - fab jewel green skirt £25 squids
Top: Topshop
Shoes: Urban Outiftters

Outfits for uni, comfy shomfy..

Really quite like this top
Also Im pretty sure I should get some type of discount for the amount of time and money i spend in bloody Topshop
Vintage shopping down Brick Lane this weekend
will post my finds...
