A rare sighting of me with curled hair and a hat! · Made homemade chicken and ham pie with Ebs · Peppermint mochas, Juicystar07 style ;) · Lauren of Noir Nouvelle looking ever so profesh in my final blog portfolio for Uni · Pizza and Twilight Scene-It after finally seeing Breaking Dawn, which I loved and cried at (as well as lol'ed at beyond belief) · A much needed coffee break in The Lounge last weekend · Me browsing in Hepwright's Vintage once again, photo courtesy of the ever lovely Sarah · A caramel macchiato, my lens cap as ever, and new phone! · New shoes from New Look for a bargainous £15.99 · My finished magazine mock-up for Fashion Forecasting! Eeeeep! Guess the target publication? · An epic, epic hot chocolate that was about 30% hot choc, and 70% whipped cream... · The South Bloggers' Meet girls and I last weekend (big thanks to the randoms that we chose to take the photo!) Scroll down to see everyone's blogs!


So 6,500 words of essays, a visual research portfolio, dissertation proposal, magazine mock-up and free-standing University blog later, I'm back with a post for you! By the way, I hereby give you all permission to slap my wrist - and my wrist only - for failing to post the second part of my Ways to Wear Sequins post this weekend. On the plus side, I'm a mere four and a bit days away from seeing my Mama and being whisked away back home for family festivities, Christmas preparation and meeting my beautiful new baby cousin! Yup, it's been a busy week and my new cousin, Danny, made his first appearance in the world on Wednesday!

It's been a very foodie few days in the house, mealtimes seem to be the highlight of our days recently, and I've barely left my room since Tuesday! Hoping to get back in the swing of outfit posts next week when I'm reunited with my sister, but until then, I'm enjoying preparing some other posts and planning out some mini projects. Stay tuned! (Don't get your hopes up too much, I'm just introducing some video content to the Ways to Wear feature haha!)

I surprised myself with wearing a hat to Uni the other day: I've never been one to sport headgear of any sort, but I thought I'd give it a go because I'd just curled my hair and true to Sod's Law and typical British weather, it decided to bucket it down as I stepped outside. I think I might just invest in that Topshop pom-pom hat now that I've given hats a second chance! Finally, how perfect did the Bublé look on the, otherwise lacklustre, X Factor final last night?! I've had his latest Christmas album on repeat all week, and am in love with his duet with my babe Shania Twain.

  3. stop having immaculate work, it makes me feel bad ive prioritised sim playing. x factor was shambles last night, whyyy didnt they just do it in the bladdy studio with celebrities who actually have a career. i miss the cheesy, 'OMG, I never listen to this artist but can't believe im about to introduce to you all...'. xxx

    Your week looks lovely! Congratulations on getting all your uni work done, the mock up looks lovely. your hat looks great, I would say definitely go for the pom pom one (I'm dying to get it aswell, but I'm really not a hat person, sadly). and yum for hot chocolate/whipped cream concoctions! X

  13. It was so lovely to meet you finally! We should meet up again soon, seeing as we're so close. I go to Southampton a lot.In those photos of The Lounge, all I can see is all the crap in my bag.. I really need to throw my crap away haha.
    Looks like you've been having as many hot chocolates as me.. hope you've been having as much cream too. I eat all mine then top it back up again.
    Your hat looks good, you should definitely wear it more often.
    I can't wait to get this semester's uni work out of the way.. I should be doing it now really but commenting on blogs is much more interesting! xx

  15. I say you should wear hat's more often, because they really suit you! And especially with curly hair, its always a bonus :-) You little purdy lady you!
    I love how most of your photo's are hot drinks, this defnitely sums up our weather right about now!xx

  22. 70% whipped cream hot chocolate? Sounds good to me! I don't usually like hot chocolate because I find it a bit bitter if you get what I mean, haha. The bloggers all look lovely in that photo, and I'm excited for you to be able to finally go home for Christmas!
    Also - that magazine project looks amazing, well done, lovely!
