check that line of dead pixels out... I NEED A NEW CAMERA ):

Afternoon lovers! Hope you are all doing well on this, um, fine(?!) Monday? I've been in the worst mood known to man today. I had next to no sleep because I wasn't tired and my back was aching, I woke up to the sound of rain which usually leads to a bad mood, the bank were unhelpful again, the Post Office lady was rude to me, I dropped my purse and most of its' contents in a store... Basically, it was a day I'd like to write off!

I think I've mentioned this before on my blog somewhere, I can't find where I wrote it haha, but I don't buy everything I feature in my Wednesday Wants. I tend to use those posts as a generic way of seeing how my tastes and style is developing, and to motivate myself to save a little money towards certain pieces (: This week was an exception though: I went shopping on Sunday with my friend Mandy, and bought the New Look sheer shirt and the secret garden double finger ring from Accessorize, as well as a few other things that I'll be wearing over the next few weeks. A bit of retail therapy never goes amiss!

Had a bit of Formspring action and the like last night. I'd been doing so well with deleting hate and all that, but I've decided just to disable anons, so now to ask me a question, you must be a Formspring user. I'm really sorry if this is inconvenient to any of you, I know I do get some genuine questions on there, but you can always email me as I always reply, give or take a few days! I think this will work out better for my Fashion Q&A posts as well, so I'll be able to credit whoever asked me the question!


As you can see in the photos above, I received my Wallpaper Rose Golden Snitch necklace today! It is the cutest thing ever, and I fully intend to sit and watch Harry Potter tonight while wearing it (: Also, how cute is their packaging?! I also received two Next Lookbooks for their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which I will be flicking through today. I will report back if anything catches my eye!

PS. Returned the Canon EOS 500D this morning. I wish I would have had the common sense to snap photos before I returned it, but no, back to the grainy quality of my usual point-and-shoot!

  1. Ooo I heard on the news this morning that it's the most depressing day of the year today, I'm sure if they didn't tell us we'd all be cheerier, but now we use it as an excuse... or at least I do :P
    The ring is so pretty, it's fairytale-esque!!

  13. ha, i had a similar crap start to the day today - far too much rain, got stuck at the barrier because my oyster card was out, dropped my card-holder in a puddle, then squished onto a sweaty commuter train and went a couple of stops before I realised I'd left my phone at home + i had to go back home for it! d'oh! then i got back and found out the resturant i'd arranged for my friends to meet at tonight was closed... since 9:30 things have been looking up though :D
    that ring is wonderful and the necklaces look gorgeous like that!

    Sarah: Thank you (: Yeah, apparently it's Blue Monday? I was annoyed before I even knew, and its just affecting my mood even more now aha! From everyone's Tweets, it looks like I'm not the only person in a crap mood though! xx

    Vicky: N'awh thank you. Receiving goodies in the post made up for it all a little bit though!

    Aimee: Bleugh, I've had it for about four years now, so I'm prepared that its probably going to break soon! The photos just come out so grainy, no matter how I adjust the settings! Thanks lovely (: x

    Rachel: I know, it is lovely! Thank you so much Rachel, hopefully it turns out better than today did! I start back at Uni tomoz though, so who knows!? x

    Courtney: Thank you! (: I had to snap the ring up, it's so cute and I hadn't seen another double finger ring like it anywhere else. xx

    Bee: Oh yesss it was, especially with the gold and purple! Very Hogwarts-esque (: Buy the shirt sweet, nab a student discount from a friend, I bought mine for £17 with discount! xx

    MonsterManiac: Thank you! Eeek really?! I don't know how to make them work again ): Sucksss. xx

    Sarah Maria: Eee I know! £8 from Accessorize ;) My day has been okay, definitely picked up a bit, spent a good portion of it on the phone and tucked up in bed! x

    Gem: I just had to, was so cute! Awh noo ): <3

    Ellio100: Ugh I hate bad starts to the day as well! I can't even remember which bag my Oyster card is even in, its been lost for a good few months now! I'm glad your day picked up though sweety, hope you have a good time at the meal with your friends (: xxx

    Lydia-Lee: Thank you!

    Tazz: Thanks lovely (:

    Jennie: Thank you so much Jennie (: Feeling a lot better now that I've calmed down and had a mini snooze in my room! Bad mornings are the worst though, they leave that horrible feeling throughout the day! xx

    Kate: It's so cute and unique! The Snitch even opens up, and has a little red gem, although my photograph was crap and didn't show it ): xxx

    Katie: I lovelove it! Mm I do try to keep positive, but once things go downhill, they just seem to bounce off each other? Looking forward to an evening in front of the TV with the girls tonight though! Eeep, thanks lovely. xx

  21. Anna: Haha I hadn't shopped for over three weeks, which is pretty good going for me! Felt like a mini splurge before Uni started up was in order (: A lot of my clothes don't fit me properly at the moment too, so I thought I might as well! xx

    Amey: I know, Wallpaper Rose have some of the nicest pieces on their website. I ordered a few bits from there for my sister's Christmas present in November (: Aww thanks lovely, hope you do as well, TV is looking v good tonight in all honesty! xx

  23. Aaaw i feel your loss- hated having to give my borrowed SLR back. My fujifilm is an old faithful but nothing can compare now I've used a 'proper' camera!

    The snitch necklace is fab! I ordered one as a gift...their birthday's not til december but as an avid HP fan I didn't want to lose the chance to buy the perfect pressie! Thanks for including a close up - great to see how cute it really is!

  29. I love the snitch necklace, I will admit I never really got the whole Harry Potter thing, I read some of the books when I was younger and I've seen some of the films but it just doesn't do it for me, but that I like! It's so pretty, and so clever!

    Danni: Waaaa I'm so sad I don't have it now ): Really want to save for once, but on a tight £10 stretched budget a week, I srsly can't even attempt it at the moment! Oh that's a good plan, they've been selling like hotcakes from what I hear! xxx

    Caroline: (: Such a pretty take on the double finger rings which seem to be quite tough looking everywhere! I'm not cool enough to hang with the cool kids! x

    Irene: Bleugh, I'm dithering over asking the 'rents for a new one as an investment to the blog, but my sister's told me what I'm potentially getting for my 20th and I'd much rather have what she's told me! Thank you sweety, really hope you carry on blogging! xxxx

    D: Thank you! It was from Accessorize!

    Sofia: It's so beautiful isn't it?! :( It was just a combination of things really... All I wanted was for someone to pick me up, give me a hug and drive me home! I felt like such a baby! Oooh it was the Uni's, I loaned it for the weekend ^___^ xx

    Ellen: Awh thank you so much! (: <3

    Little Mittens: :O I'm a tad obsessed with Harry Potter aha! It opens up and everything, just like in the books/films!

  44. We all have those days when we feel as if the day just keeps getting worse and worse! My monday wasn't the best either however chocolate soon cheered me up and today I'm right as rain! So hope you cheer up, it'll all come together soon love! :)

    The necklace is most unusual! It's a lovely little gem, I'm rather jealous!

    Why did you return you camera? I'm on the look out for an slr however I'm not sure what route to go down!

    Katie: It wasn't my camera (: Was just a DSLR I loaned from Uni for the weekend! Think I'm going to get hunting for a relatively affordable new camera soon too! xx

  46. Sorry to hear you had a rubbish monday lass :( but glad cute little snitchy came to cheer you up! just wanted to say again thank you so much for what you said in my last post - your supportive words mean a lot to me and I dont mean to be all dramatic or whatever, I just had to get it out there while it was in my noggin! thanks again though, you are super :) and hope you get your hands on another dslr! try befriend a film student... I bought mines from one super cheap from a friend who was upgrading to something else stupidly expensive! so his junk was my luxury :) haha that sounds wrong though eh?! xx

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sorry you had a sucky Monday dear! Hope today is a little better.

    I love both pieces of jewellery - the ring is gorgeous and I'm a sucker for anything Secret Garden, it was my favourite book growing up and I recently introduced my niece to it! The snitch necklace is adorable too, was looking at that the other day and thinking of you!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ayden: I honestly was cheered up by the Snitch! You're welcome lovely, your post really struck a chord with me, it was everything I've been feeling but struggled to articulate properly on here, feel a bit blah with trying to blog and balance everything else at the moment :/ Ohh that's so good! Come to think of it, my Mum's best friend is selling two (YES TWO!) of her old SLR cameras atm, I might see what she'll offer me it for! xxxx

    Sarah: Today was a bit better thanks lovely, despite an ugly early wake-up call for Uni! Me too, I absolutely loved The Secret Garden, I have a spiral bound copy of it at home (: Eee I'm such a HP fanatic, promise I don't obsess about it this much "IRL", the "fashion girls" at Uni would probably ditch me :p xxxx
