Over and over again

Tuesday, 3 January 2012



Mum : Where is your coat Shirley?
Me : It's in the house mum, I'm just taking pictures. I'll put it on when I'm actually going out later. Promise.
Mum : Hmph. Ok. Don't come to me when you get a cold.
Me : You can't get a cold from standing in the cold mum. You get it from an infection.
Mum : Silly girl.


My mum still doesn't understand what we do here. Bless her.
This is me in my New snakeskin print waterfall dress. I'm so in love with it. I don't mind wearing it over and over again.

I'm off back to Nottingham today to face the books! I am excited because I do miss my apartment, my little space, and just being in Notts!
However, I'm not so excited about the Calculus Exam that awaits me. Oh the Joy!


Dress : Topshop (Cici London)
Belt & Hosiery : Primark
Boots : Forever 21
Bag : Zara
Coat (In the House, lol!) : H&M

That's a really lovely dress, i'm tempted to order it. But since i have to pay to get it delivered here to Australia i need to find something else on the site i want :)

Your hair looks amazing! Do you mind doing a review on the hair, where you bought it, how you take care of it etc. Oh, how much of your hair did you leave out?

Love the dress Shirley! Haha, my father is exactly the same, he thinks you can catch a cold from merely standing in the cold. I try and explain it to him, but he'll insist I go and get my scarf haha! You look gorgeous in this :) Xx

Looking fabulous as always! And lol, my mom's the same way! You get colds during the winter time because everyone is indoors and it's much easier to catch it that way. But alas... we still have to bundle up as if the weather is causing it haha Bless our moms!
