Evening girls and guys! I'm currently finding it a little hard to come to terms with how dark it already is, and it's only 4:30pm! However, it does mean Christmas is well on its' way! I have pretty much wasted my day away, but hey, that's just the way it goes sometimes. I snoozed for a good two and a half hours this morning, so I only managed to fit in about an hour of Uni work before I had to leave! I'm really struggling to feel inspired to write about and analyse the effects of globalisation on fashion - bleugh!

(Tunic, Topshop;
Tights, Primark;
Brooch, Primark;
Necklace, Hepwright's Vintage Stall.)

Apologies for my awkward poses ;) Today I went for a pretty demure look. I'm still loving my peter pan tunic from the tempting shiny haven of Topshop; been experimenting with ways to wear this recently, but I haven't photographed any of them yet. I popped into Primark last week, in search for a nice ring to add to my ever-expanding collection, but walked out with this adorable brooch instead. It's a little brass swallow(?), and only cost a £1! So I popped that on my collar, and tucked a set of pearls under the collar too.

Had a driving lesson this afternoon as well, which went well! I'm getting seriously nervous for my test, because even though I know I'm test-standard blahblah, it really is a case of luck and other drivers around me on the day. But all that aside, s'all going well, I just want my pink license and a Nissan Figaro, and my life will be complete ;)

Right! I'd better go and fit a bit of work in (i.e. planning my essay, or more likely planning a plan, etc.!) before dinner. Going out for drinks after dinner with the girls so we don't go completely mad from Uni work stresses! Thank you to everyone who has entered the ol' Christmas blog giveaway, I'm adding another piece to the overall prize, as I've now reached over 700 followers, which is ker-raaazy! (HUGE thank you to Lily for the link last night ) Hope you all wrap up warm and have nice evenings, we're predicted snow this week - eek!
