1. As I'm sure you've heard me complain over Twitter and in this week's posts, I've got a seriously sore throat at the moment. When I woke up this morning, my throat felt so closed up; I'm just hoping I don't lose my voice as I've got a lot planned this upcoming week. I've been drinking this all week, its 念慈菴, which is a Chinese honey mixture.

2. Been reading up on fashion photographers for University this week. I'm thinking of writing my 2000-word illustrated essay on Annie Leibovitz, I've been reading about her work and herself, and she really interests me!

3. My Fashion & Styling assignment brief. Look at me, all organised with highlighters and coloured pens! My essay plan is all colour-coordinated as well, just the way I like my University work!

4 & 5. Thought it was about time I treated myself to a new pair of shoes! I picked these up at the Topshop student shopping event, so I got 20% off them, making me feel a LOT better. These are the VINE Flower Mesh Pumps in black from Topshop. I love them to bits, and there have a little star pattern on the mesh! Yay for new shoes!

6. Wearing the new shoes with my outfit on Friday. I took this in the lift, while toting a Uni camera, my bag and with headphones on. Must've looked like I was moving out or something!

7. HAM & CHEESE TOASTIE. I've been eating these constantly all week, which cannot be good for me! They're so yummy though, I'm gutted now I'm almost out of ham and haven't got a food shop planned until next Friday!

8. The view from our living room on maybe Wednesday night? I don't know why my camera likes to make it all yellow, the view does look a lot lovelier in real life, trust me!

9. Playing around with a Canon 400D that I've got loaned until tomorrow morning. It's taken me ages to get used to it, I usually use my friend's Nikon DSLR for Uni photoshoots, but she's not on hand for me to borrow the camera!

10 & 11. Some failed outfit photos ;) Clearly the settings are all wrong, making my skin look grey, no flash, too close... Just a massive fail on all parts!

12. A failed macro shot! Was trying to get it to focus on my necklace, and clearly it just wouldn't do it. Must. Get. Better.

  2. I love this idea! I really want that cup, where is it from?! You've made me really hunry now too, haha, must get food after this. Your shoe purchase is so cute! I missed the Topshop 20% off thing, I am so gutted, I hate that the city is so far away from me! I think your photo's have turned out pretty decent for a first try and you just reminded me I really need to start researching photographers for my university interview, oh lord :-( X

  7. jessie: i love toasties! once i get a job, i'm gonna invest in a toastie machine or panini machine, i love my food! thank you sweet, hope you had a great weekend too!

    naomi: thanks sweet! i've seen it on abby's blog (abbzzw.blogspot.com) as well as a few others, and sundays are too lazy for me to sit and write a "proper" post! i bought my mug from the disney store on champs d'elysses in paris! awh thanks lovely, i'm not amazing with a camera, but i'm willing to try and learn for the sake of my degree and blog! good luck with the researching <3

    gypsy: thank you! oh i've just made and eaten another one, no more ham now, booo ): thanks lovely!

    irene: they're so yummy aren't they?! thanks sweet (:

    aimee: i love mugs as well! i don't like using glasses because i'm so clumsy and accident prone, it's safer to use a mug with a proper handle ;) my ring is from dollybowbow.co.uk! was just under £5!

    nathalie: thank you lovely! it was a playsuit with a slouchy top worn over the top!
