This is also the perfect opportunity to show you another beautiful case I have. I've never actually used it yet, it's one of those things that i'm waiting to use but have never has a good enough excuse really. My sister bought me it for my birthday about two years ago, so far it's just been storing some of my many scarf's. It's beautiful, I love the 1920's style design.

For something a bit different I wore blue mascara which I only put on the ends of my upper lashes which are really blonde, it looked good and I tried to show you in a photograph but you can't really tell. You can see better my favourite lipstick though which is Pro-to-go from Avon. The shade is Provocative Plum.

My lilac sunnies came in handy today too as my nephew's scratched my old favourite's and inbetween the rain today it was very sunny!
Now this was all very exciting, but my postman brought me another exciting thing today. As I received my ND Photography certificates the other day I am now finally able to apply for my accommodation at uni, and got the forms through today. Woo! Things are moving very quickly!

I love this dress, it always reminds me of this one that Twiggy modelled in the 1960's.
Now, i'm not usually one for painting my nails, I can never seem to find a colour that matches my skin tone. I'm the same with eyeshadow, I never wear it. But i've taken a fancy recently to light grey nail varnish so I decided to try some today. It's Beautyuk, glam nails nail polish in Soft Grey from Superdrug. I love it, it's a really nice shade and I will definitely be wearing it through the summer.

There were a few things I spotted in the Urban Outfitters sale too that were just too good to resist and while looking at them a purse, a t-shirt and some sunglasses accidently fell into the shopping basket and got paid for. Completely by accident of course. I won't spoil the suprise now but i'll upload a couple of photos when they arrive.
Anyhoo, must dash i've got a Rhubarb Crumble in the oven and tuna pasta bake to stick in!

It's also the detail on this jacket which makes it really special. The brand crest and even the lining is beautiful.
My dress was thrifted a couple of years ago and I also highly suspect hand made too. I teamed it with black biker boots from New Look and grey socks.
Here I was on my way to my final british sign language assessment for my level one certificate. I get the results in a couple of weeks so fingers crossed! Also my other birthday present is on it's way and as soon as it arrives i'll be sure to show it off!

I did feel a little bit like I looked like I was off to a festival this day rather than going to my nephew's first sports day but I was comfortable and felt good that i'd not had to get rid of these jeans completely, just the knee downwards. I wore my "new" shorts with £3 sand shoes from Primark and a jumper that was on sale from Peacocks. The last one and it was in my size, would have been rude not to!
To accessorise I wore a cameo necklace and some little anchor stud earrings from Topshop and a thrifted satchel bag which only cost £3.50, as soon as I saw it I needed it and doesn't it make you feel good to find something amazing in one of those shops that costs so little!
