Alex got me this galaxy-esque dress from ASOS for christmas and I love it sooo much I have barely stopped wearing it! It's getting a bit gross, really. It's got a really lovely purple, blue and black tie-dye effect on it, so isn't 'in your face' galaxy print. 

It's one of those 'smock' shapes that hide all manner of festive sins, but on the flip side could easily pass as maternity wear so either way you still kind of look a bit preggo. But I heart it. And only £25! (The gift was part of a wider ASOS haul, I don't just have the cheapest boyf of all time...)

Dress - ASOS
Pleather jacket - Topshop
Necklace - Me & Zena*
Boots - Jeffrey Campbell at Sarenza*

This is a snap of me from the Company Blogging Forum on Monday night, wear I was on the panel talking about bloggy things. 

Speaking of bloggy things, Alex and I are FINALLY moving to London. In under two weeks! We're moving to Angel to a fab flat in a divine location (not gonna lie, I burst into tears o' joy after viewing the flat... It had been a long day!) SO without the commute I'll have 4 hours of extra time in my day and can finally resume my blogging activities. I can't wait! 

So if any readers are still hanging on in there, firstly - YOU WIN, never liked those other readers anyway xxx, and secondly prepare to hear a lot more about my new life. It's gonna be fun-filled, action-packed and very foodie. 

Stay tuned. And wish me luck with my millionth house-move... Eurggghhh. *Stay focused on the pretty new flat*...

  2. I was going to ask how the house-things were going... Two weeks! How exciting! Very pleased that you've found a place and am looking forward to the forthcoming blogginess.

    Also- love that galaxy print dress and, weirdly enough, I've just written a post and am wearing one of those smock-types from Toppers and had just thought to to myself 'oh dear, I'm looking a bit chunky around the middle in this... oh well.'

    Hopef see you before you move, or maybe we could meet in LDN when I'm on one of my Google visits, although I'm not sure how many more of those I'll have :-/ xx

  55. Congratulations, its the best thing ever finally getting rid of the damn commute and actually having a life in the evening! My boyfriend and I were commuting for an hour and a half into Oxford but moved about a month ago into our own place and now I just have a 20 minute bus ride. Glad to have you back! And I'd love to see any home type posts, I am all sad and excited about decorating stuff now. And about all my lovely Joseph Joseph kitchenware!
