Drinking champagne from a paper cup.





brown faux fur double breasted coat; topshop / dalmation print shoes; topshop / rings; fashionology and eBay.

These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago but I completely forgot to post them! This is another one of my new fur coats. It went in the sale for £68, and I actually only ended up paying £18 for it because I had an exchange and also signed up for an Outfit credit card just so I could get the £20% off! I really love it. It's completely different to my black fur so I felt like I could justify it - this one has a real vintage 'car coat' feel about it! And it's brown...although that's pretty axiomatic!

I've included some extra pictures in today's post because, HOW strange are they? I love how they turned out but it was completely unintentional. When I imported them they just ended up like this, I really panicked that I'd broken something! I recently came across Dan Mountford's work with double exposures (I know these pictures aren't the same thing!) and I absolutely love them. I'm doing a photography module again next semester so I hope that I can do something inspired by him.

It was my 21st birthday yesterday! I got thoroughly spoilt and I've still got presents from my family to come! I might have to be really self indulgent and dedicate a whole post to birthday shenanigans! For those of you who don't know, I am a twin, but my beautiful sister (we're non-identical, I'm aware that comes across massively arrogant for those who don't know us!) lives in Surrey at Uni so I couldn't spend the day, as I always have, with her. I also had loads of work due in so, apart from the evening (another day, another blog...) it just felt like any other day. This weekend will be our real birthday, Rosie is coming to my house on Friday and we're spending the evening at something called Winterfest - it's effectively Keele Univeristy's winter ball but a lot messier! Then Saturday we'll be visiting family - and she's being spoilt rotten! I can't wait to see her face when she get's her presents :) Wow, I think this is possibly THE most self indulgent post (the irony) of my entire blog - which evidently, turns 1 soon!

I'm absolutely shattered now, so I'm going to watch The Shining (I'm terrified already) with my flatmates and gorge on Eton Mess! Hope everyone's uni assessments are going ok - it'll be Christmas soon!

P.S. Did I really put 'shenanigans' in my blog? Dear lord.
