Today is one of those nondescript days, trying to pass the time with some home-baked savoury pastry goodies, a Harry Potter film because we all know I don't watch those enough, and playing with my new Boudoir Prive box of treats. Perfect. I actually have a driving lesson later this afternoon, at 2:45pm, which is the most awkward time to book for. No idea what goes through this mind of mine!

I took this random little webcam photo of my nails with all the intention of Twitpic-ing it, but completely forgot, so thought I'd just include it anyway. Check out that freshly washed, bouffant hair! I should really get on with my packing instead of taking webcam photos of myself... Also, has anyone read the Stop magazine that was shoved in our faces at London Fashion Week?! While there are some interesting reads in there, I can't help but think the magazine is geared towards some sort of anti-blogger movement.

I received my Boudoir Prive box this morning, having completely forgotten about it. I'm quite impressed by what's in there, and I personally like that there isn't a full-sized product in there to overshadow the others. Doused myself in the Agent Provocateur perfume and immediately realised that the musky, dark scent is definitely an evening scent. I'll be back tomorrow with a Ways to Wear edition, I think. Those are always my favourites to compile, edit and write! Oh, and before I forget, I received an exciting surprise email about my blog working in partnership with Grazia magazine - so exciting! Happy weekend! ♥

PS. Bonus outtake of an outfit "photoshoot" during the weekend, simply because who the heck walks like that?! ;)

  11. Hahaha! If you think that is bouffant, you should see mine! My hair is so thick that anything and everything gives it volume (and far too much might I add)! Anyway there is no point worrying about things I can't really do anything about so...I guess I'll stop talking/typing now! :D xx

  13. Amy: It goes all fluffy and big after a wash haha! Thanks sweet ;) xxx

    Isabela: Thank you so much, I adore your blog by the way, it's one of my longtime favourites! x

    Jane: Such a chilled out day haha, I'm such a loner, I love spending days in on my own, getting things done and organised in my own time (: Thanks lovely, driving went really well, packing... not so much! x

    Corrie: Aw thank you lovely! Eeeeep I know, I'm so excited about it, not sure what happens next but I'll be keeping everyone posted on here and on Twitter of course. And yes, we should go for a coffee or something when we're both back around (: x

    AdmiralBiatch: I was absolutely terrified to start my lessons, I started them last summer and honestly space my lessons out so much that it's taken me forever to learn. You'll be fine with the right instructor and the right mindset sweetie (:

    The Style Box: Thank you girls! I'm really excited to see where the Grazia partnership goes, one of my all-time favourite magazines. xx

    Elise: I'm really excited about it all, it was such a surprise when the email popped up, I squealed like a child and went to tell my Mum haha (: Ahhh student life, you can't beat it, right? ;)

    Georgie: Just a few smarmy features that sounded really bitchy and awful, I'd scan them in but my scanner is in blimmin' Southampton :-P The rest of it is a lovely read though, some beautiful editorials and shoots. xx

    Courtney: Thanks sweet! I drove through and around Potters Bar earlier by the way, your high street is a nightmare for traffic! Hope you're doing well Courtney (:

    Sophie: Ooh you should, not to blow me own trumpet, but they look so cute IRL, makes for a great conversation starter too (: x

    Claire: Haha aw! I'd love mine to be a little more voluminious, mine is huge post-wash, then goes awful and flat when I step outside :-P x

    Rubie: Thank you! x

  18. That's exactly my idea of a perfect day. Any time I get I literally watch harry potter movies and/or read the novels over and over again. Love the nails. :)

  23. I love your nails, I'm gonna have to try this! I wish I'd signed up to Boudoir Prive this month, I intended to but I completely forgot!

  24. I recived a Boudoir Prive box too and love the nail varnish and the body scrub smells delicious! Really liking how you've created those nails too, stunning.

  25. Hi Michelle! I actually loved STOP magazine - I thought it had some intelligent entries and really didn't see it as anti Blogger at all. I thought what it was getting at about street style snapping/posing was quite correct although I am probably guilty of it myself!
    On a different note - those pastries look blooomin good! :D nom! xx
