week in photos: 25/04-01/05

Went for a Pret lunch, gossip sesh and catch-up with the Uni girls after a month away! • Some dutiful shameless self-portraiting happened • Took part in Sarah's Royal Bloggers' Takeover with a lot of bunting and thousands of pounds worth of clothing • My final to-do list for my final second year assignment! Eep! • My feature portfolio all bound and ready to be handed in • I've overindulged on Tumblr this week, more is only to come so my apologies for spamming you with reblogs and mundane photos of my daily life! • I went to the Marina for a mini still-life photoshoot • Union Jack nails, with polka dot and heart detailing • Attended the Newcombe Royal Rave, Solent knows how to party! (: • Egg on toast: one perfect and one fail-egg • Went out with my lovely flatmates • Catching up on American TV series with choc and full-fat Coke • V. sunny in my living room and rocking the trademark Vivatramp pose ;) • Sweet pepper, chicken and tomato pasta - NOM!

I hope you've all had a lovely week readers ♥ Can you believe we've already reached May?! All of these Bank Holidays and it being the end-of-term has made me a very lazy girl and blogger indeed! It's my little sister's birthday on Wednesday and I'm so gutted that I won't see her ): I've also been ridiculously busy with tying up the odds and ends of my Styling portfolio this week, as you probably know, but am about 97% finished with it now. As a result, I haven't been commenting on blogs etc. as much recently, but please know that I do read them all religiously and I 'like' them wherever I can! I'll see you all tonight for a TOWIE liveblog/Tweetathon?


My favourite reads this week: The beautiful Beth looking like a fairy in an outfit post, Some vintage interior inspiration from Ella, Sarah hosted a Royal Wedding blog takeover, Hannah shared some wedding fever and Harry Potter excitement, and the wonderful Bee brightened my week with another Vivahearts installment!

  11. Me too Sarah (: Thanks for letting me be a part of it all, it was both amusing and lovely to see everyone's reaction on Twitter to about 8 simultaneous, Royalist-esque posts haha! Hope you're well honey! xxxxx

    Thank you Elodie! Oh gosh, I am so proud to be British at the moment, I had a mini weep watching some clips back of the wedding haha, Wills and Kate are so perfect together! x

You're welcome sweet, good to share the love and all ;) I've been such a student this week haha, nothing like a massive pasta dish to keep the smiles up. Love you too. xo

  31. oh thank you for the link lady - i only just saw this and had linked up your gorgeous kimono jacket too:). looks like another lovely week. i found out that your friend in that street party picture (Emily I think her name is) is housemates with a girl who is friends with my my Uni friend. I hope that makes sense, but my point is that its a small world! xx
