I'm going on a road trip with Emily to stay with our friend Hannah tomorrow after work. Can't wait!!! I do have lots to do before hand so will try and keep this brief, but I know I never do! (EDIT: I failed).
Firstly, I HAVE to share this epic Primark bargain with you. I know it isn't the height of aesthetic excitement, but at only £4, this navy striped jersey skater style dress was a must-buy. They do it in loads of other colours too. I bought a black and white striped one. It's quite loose fitting so is very forgiving. Handy in the midst of a Jaffa Cake addiction relapse.
My ASOS/Groupon purchases arrived, including the Katy Perry OPI 'Teenage Dream' polish. I couldn't decide whether to get the set of mini polishes or just one full size one. My Twitter homeys and SJ's (Cowbiscuits) handy review made me realise Teenage Dream was my favourite, so I decided to get a full sized one.
Isn't it just the glitteriest dream of a polish? I used three coats but it dried super quickly. It is so much more mesmerising in real life, it's always a bitch photographing glitter polish!
On the subject of hands, Sarah, the designer behind Magasin, sent me these two awesome rings the other day. Sarah specialises in creating genius cross stitch jewellery and accessories, and is also a blogger! I have had so many comments whilst wearing these babies - everyone is in agreement that it's a pretty ingenious concept! Being an OAP at heart (and often on the surface) I enjoy any nod to granny culture, and these cross stitch cuties are no exception. Anyway, it's not all yaaaay-look-at-my-freebies, as Sarah has kindly offered you all 15% off in her etsy store using the code GEMFATALE15!
In other news, I borrowed a swishy Canon 500D camera from uni today for my project, so tested it out earlier on my gorgeous little model, Roxy. I've never been able to get such close/clear pictures of her with her eyes open as the flash on my little Nikon turns her eyes into squinting, glowing orbs. Isn't she just a beaut? I was going to just post one picture, but I couldn't choose my fave!
By the way, I call that little platform she's sitting on her Perch of Terror
