a heart so big, God couldn't let it live.

- this lyric reminds me so, so much of my Grandpa. I can't listen to it/read it without crying, even five years on. Love, always.

I adore this top by Evil Twin. MarketHQ sent it to me which is an Australian store which stocks all of my favourite brands. When it came, they'd kindly sent me some lookbooks for some of the brands which I can't wait to stick on my bedroom wall at uni. My favourite brands right now are all Australian, so postage and packing is so expensive! MarketHQ don't ship to the UK at the moment, but they keep dropping hints on their twitter that it's in the motions...I really hope so! Although I might have to find someone who loves their stuff just as much as me so we can split shipping! I hate paying postage and packing fees, I spend a fortune on it! Maybe I have an Australian reader who wants to be my pen pal....and by 'pen pal', I mean I'll just swap UK clothes for Australian? HA! Plus, Australia is getting all their AW stock now, and I just love AW trends.

I'M GOING ON HOLIDAY TODAY! I am so, so excited, and I can't wait to have a tan. I had planned to schedule some posts while I was away but I just haven't had time at all - but I do have lots of interesting things to show you when I get back! I'm refusing to take my iPhone or any technology (like, not even my camera!) apart from my old iPhod shuffle to listen to Morrissey and The Smiths around the pool. Sometimes it's nice to just turn your phone off and get away - but please don't forget about me! Haha that is so sad but like, I don't really fancy coming back to a reader-less blog.

I don't really have that much to say if I'm honest...I'm so busy trying to pack (14 days = 32 outfits, right? And 11 books? Okay.) although I am ridiculously pleased and proud to say that I got a FIRST in my first year at Uni. If you saw the photographs I made and edited in this post, I ended up getting a 76 on those, so I couldn't be more pleased! I probably shouldn't have posted that here, we all know what happens when I post anything positive about my achievements on here! ;)

Oh, and can this class as Sunday Shoes? I LOVE my new sandals! I don't know whether anyone else agrees, but I love shoes like this that I can wear with tights. Although, having said that I can't wait to wear them with a tan! They are so ridiculously comfortable and they were in office for £10! I've linked them just under the outfit post because you all need a pair in your life. I adore the pretty little buckles on them. They're also suitable for vegetarians! I had never ever thought about footwear when it comes to vegetarians, but I love it when I see a shoe advertsied as 'suitable for vegetarians' - it reminds me of that woman who eats sofas and tyres, like if you're a veggie you can so eat these ;)

I hope you all have an amazing two weeks, 'speak' to you when I get back :)!

P.S. this is my hair cut! these photos are from last week so it's already grown and the layers aren't as obvious, phew!)

  1. You look lovely! Congrats on your first year, i think i had a constant d average for first and second year then pulled it out the bag for my honours [stopped drinking every night.] Have an amazing time on your well earned break, I didn't have my phone on me at all on holiday and only went online to check for job related emails, it was so freeing, plus lovely to be sat having dinner with my boyf without one of us answering texts/calls etc! See [read] you when you're back! xx
