and I've never felt so alive in the whole of my life

fluffy knitted cape; staple / cobalt blue t-shirt; forever21 / studded slippers; topshop / arrow necklace and studded bracelet; forever 21 / 'gothic' bracelet; pilgrim / citrine earrings; fashionology / rings; various
Please excuse the flash - it's too dark to get natural light.

Firstly; WOW. Thank you so much for all of the lovely comments on my last post. I'm actually a really rubbish blogger when it comes to commenting, I get a bit embarrassed about what to say (how daft!) But I've recently started to leave them when I visit a blog because, as a blogger, I know how nice it is to receive comments and a bit of recognition for the efforts we all put into a blog post. I'm hoping to keep up my commenting sprees - plus, I've found so many gorgeous bloggers with enviable wardrobes through my commenting sprees! And it may have helped me get slightly closer to my 500 follower aim for Christmas New Year!

These are a few new buys again, another piece of cobalt blue! This is a dead basic t-shirt from Forever21, but it's such good quality! It's that really gorgeous silky jersey which feels so much more expensive than it was - wish I'd bought a black and white one now! I paired it with my new necklace to add a bit more interest - another piece I can't stop wearing. I usually only wear real silver because I get so annoyed when costume jewellery tarnishes, but I had to make an exception for this beauty (and my bracelets in this post!) My favourite part of this outfit has to be my new cardigan! It's by Staple and I've wanted it for absolutely ages. When I was given my birthday money, and it had been reduced, I just knew I had to get it. I've already had 6 compliments on it and I've only worn it out twice - and once was just to get petrol! I can see this being worn to death.

I adore these earrings which are rough pieces of Citrine and, if like me you love knowing the meanings of crystals, is associated with the mind and psychic powers. I have lots of different crystal jewellery and I honestly do feel that they work - I've worn my health crystal throughout this past semester and not been ill once! And we all know how sickly I was last year...! I'm rarely seen wearing matching earrings, in my other ear I have a feather and a bird skull necklace. These were all gifts over my birthday from my best friends and flatmates. I can't stop wearing them and I'm amazed that they chose them as they are absolutely perfect for me, and I'm notoriously difficult to buy for! I also got €100 in vouchers for Fashionology for my birthday so now I'm spoilt for choice! I'm thinking of buying these, this and this, although I might wait until their new designs which will no doubt arrive in the spring!

I've babbled again haven't I? This really will be my last post until after Christmas, so I hope you all get exactly what you want and eat loads and loads like I will be! Thank you again to all of my new followers for helping me to reach my target, I really appreciate it. If you do any Christmassy posts with wish lists or what you get, post them in the comments because I'd love to see! Merry Christmas :)!
