Opted for the lazy option with variations of stir-fry noodles for dinner • Bought some adorable new dresses... In the wrong size, damn you misleading Primark hangers! • Saw 'The Adjustment Bureau' with my flatmates - it was v. good but a disappointing ending • Sunsets are getting pretty again (: • Tried on this adorable dress in Topshop • Bought The Breakfast Scrub, a new mascara and some Creme Eggs • ME. Posing as per usual! • Cheap reading material for the week: Stylist is free, Look was £1! • Drank a lot of coffee and nommed many a triple chocolate cookie • Dithered (and am still dithering!) between options for my final year at Uni • Rock 'n Roll, catching up with Eastenders in the dead of night • Sneak preview of some still-life work for my Styling portfolio


Disclaimer: I didn't include photos of aforementioned stress. I've boxed that part of my week away now, SO ready for a new week!

  4. I've had my eye on the Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub for a while now! Luckily my neighbour brings round magazines she's finished with so I never have to buy any! :) x

  6. You look gorgeous in that Topshop dress! :)
    Hope you have a less stressful week this week! I saw The Adjustment Bureau and I also thought that the ending was a bit of a let down, I was waiting for a bit climax at the end but nope. happily ever after.

  10. Thank you Rose ;) I'm getting too good at stir-frys if I must say so myself hahaha! I want the TS dress so much, not that I have any occasion to wear it to at the moment. I fell out of reading Look magazine for a while, but it's been getting really good again lately! xxx

    Haha I don't blame you, I enjoy a Creme Egg like many others! It's a really good film Mollie, I'd totally recommend it but I just thought they could have done much more with the ending! x

    Indeed I did! Food is always good during a time of stress Rachel ;)

    Oh I'm totally in love with my Breakfast Scrub now! I've heard that you can buy it a little cheaper on ASOS, so gogogo Vik! Aaah lucky, I'm studying fashion journalism so it's a little inevitable that I spend a fortune on magazines and newspapers! x

    N'awh thanks Beth. I love the covers too, the colours are all so beautiful! x

    Thank you Patsy, its the most perfect dress ever. Haha I'm glad you thought so too, it was a good film overall though! xxx

    Aw thanks Courtney (: The stirfry was too good, totally making another one tomorrow! Thanks sweet, next week will probably be worse if I'm honest but I'm going to try and make more time for myself! xx

    It's really lovely Grainne, the fit is just perfect!

    I haven't been back to exchange it yet, going to pop in tomorrow! Aaah that sucks Heather, although it'll probably mean less impulse buys which will be good in the long run! xx

  11. Your options look so good, jealous but then mine was made easy by the fact there was only 2 I wanted to do.
    That Topshop dress is lovely on you and I really really want a creme egg even though I just went co-op for biscuits and maltesers

  12. I love the pearl necklace in the last post, I've been looking for one like it for ages! Where is it from please? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I need to get my hands on the breakfast scrub :) and you can't miss eastenders! x

  14. Ah gutted the adj B had a rubbish ending, was really looking forward to watching it! Xxx

  16. Hmm I really need a cuppa coffee now Michelle!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh that's the problem with my options at the moment Chlo, I literally cannot decide what to pick! Which options and dissertation/FMP did you choose? Thanks lovely! Oh I've totally OD'd on chocolate this week, forcing myself not to buy/eat any next week! xx

    Hurry up though, think they're going pretty fast Lydia!

    Thanks Laura (: It was from a vintage store in Southampton, but I'd assume New Look, Miss Selfridge and Accessorize would have similar ones in! x

    You definitely do! Its the nicest smelling product ever! Haha oh Ellie, I'm an Eastenders addict, its awful! xx

    I'm sure you'd still enjoy it though Gem, I thought it was a really good film, but I'd been expecting a totally different ending :p xxx

    Thanks Lily! Mine too, it makes a really nice and easy read! xo

    Aha I always need coffee Helen! Should have given up caffeine for Lent :p xo

  18. Nice photographs! My mum bought some of those biscuits and I basically eat them all without realising, they're so nice when dunked in tea! I also hate it when that happend in primark, I only realise when I get home sometimes so I have to take another trip to switch it.. grr!

    Katie. x

  19. Thanks Katie! Oh I'm exactly the same, I hate that sinking feeling when you grab the last one haha! xx

    Thanks Zoe (:

  20. I did Fashion and Difference and Styling as options then theory dissertation (based on Consumption in department store)- bane of my life right now but I'm still glad I did all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Such beautiful dresses, I love the one on the hanger it looks like the perfect summer dress. Oh and such a lovely sunset, that is one of my favourite things about spring time too, the sky seems to always look so pretty! x

    ReplyDelete
  22. It looks rather carefree to me:)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Aaah really? I'm thinking of doing the theory dissertation, Fashion Buying and Forecasting, and The Title Race, but I'm not completely sure yet. Eeep. Thanks Chlo, that's helped me a little bit, edging towards the theory diss now (:

    Thanks sweety, going to exchange that badboy tomorrow ;) x

  36. Haha Danni, I even use it in real life now, most of my friends are like, "you WHAT?!" ;) Thanks sweet, I'm an overworrier when it comes to Uni work, and there is just so much of it at the moment. Comfort food is much needed to be nommed aha! xx

    Eeep I know right Hayley?! Shame it costs about £50+ which is approx £50 more than my budget allows!

    Mm I'm totally making another one tomorrow. Primark is the worst for it, I could've sworn I even saw it on the swing tag, but apparently not ): Get it Bee, you won't regret it at all! xxx

    I've only used it once and I'm not too keen on it at the moment Cherry! The brush is quite hard to use compared to my usual mascara!

    Me too Krissy aha ;)

    They're too good Laura! Thanks sweet, I need to chill out a bit really, so much stress with my Styling shoot at the moment though! xx

    Oh it's so stressful trying to decide, isn't it Ella?! Hope you manage to make a choice soon, I think I've decided on mine now (: Eastenders is a bit blah at the moment don't you think? Still a nightly must-watch for me though! xxxx

    Literally have so much love for your comments Emma. Shop slut indeed hahaha! TS is a place I hate to love! I'm test-running it this week so will probs pop it in a blog post somewhere at some point lovely! xxx

    Aw thank you Fern. Mm me too, Soap and Glory have truly outdone themselves with this bad boy! xx

    Thanks Charlotte! The sunsets are so beautiful from my flat's view (: Haha I've heard they are a smidgen cheaper on ASOS, definitely get another one ;) xx

    Eee I know right! So much chocolatey goodness! Thank you Jessika, they take a surprisingly long time to set up, pesky still-life photos! x

    Thanks Katie! x

  37. the last photo is really well styled and beautiful. I didn't mind the adjustment bureau but i agree the ending was odd, i think they could have done so much more with the concept.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The stir fry looks delicious, may give it a go this week. Diddn`t see LOOK was only £1 may treat myself since my first issue of instyle won`t get delivered until next month and I don`t want to pay for the issue thats out now.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Everyone seems to be talking about the S&G scrub - I need to check it out! The Topshop dress is gorgeous too! Good luck with your uni choices :) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  40. Aw thank you Emma. The still-life task is proving much more difficult than I'd anticipated. Oh me too, it was such a clever story and concept but I did feel something was lacking! Emily Blunt is so beautiful as well!

    Oh you should ;) I haven't subscribed to a magazine in ages, but InStyle is one of my favourites. We have to meet up soon Mandy, I'm almost heading home for Easter already! xxx

    Haha you totally should pick one up ;) I scoured the beauty blogs before deciding to take the plunge and I totally do not regret it! Thank you Caz, I think I'm almost finalised with my options choices now, eep! xx

  41. Ohhh goddd. I work in Primark and honestly the staff spend so much of their time putting things on the right hanger! I dont understand how they end up on the wrong ones, ahaha XD

  42. Oh gosh I don't envy you Alex, it always looks like mayhem in there! It's almost as if standard store etiquette isn't regarded at all in Primark! :P xx
