Everything's Made To Be Broken

I bought this new top from eBay for mere pennies. It's so cute and I love the box shape of it. The back buttons are super fiddly but WHO CARES WHEN IT'S THIS NICE.

I wore it with charity shop shorts that I cut off myself. I bought these about two years ago but never wore them because they were knee length and looked pretty gross but last week I had the GENIUS idea to cut them short! I think I should probably copyright the idea of cutting things into shorts because it's so original and I don't know anyone else that does it.

 Top: eBay
Shorts: Charity Shop 
Shoes: Underground Creepers

These are new make ups I got for myself. Well, the MAC lipstick isn't new at all, I've already worn it on here before. The Max Factor lipstick is such a nice colour ('Mulberry'), but it's shiny nooooooo. That's why I've got the MAC Film Noir one there, because a little bit of it on top of the shiny yucky one makes it a wonderful, glorious UN-shiny plum colour! Both nail varnishes are Barry M ('Blueberry' & 'Mint Green'), and both are super summery colours. Fab.

Start over.

I've been neglecting this blog recently and for that I am extremely apologetic. Life seems to have got in the way of things lately and I simply have forgotten about this little space. Last weekend I was taken to hospital with appendicitis and this week has been recovery/trying not to get too far behind on college work. My body seemed to have got timings wrong on this one and I've missed the first week of Final Collection preparations. You would not believe how painful knitting has been for me this week after my operation. But things should be back on track soon, I'll just have to work harder than I would've done.

Other than my hospitalisation, nothing else of major importance has happened to me. I made this cake for a friend's birthday which is probably the most ace thing I've ever done/seen. It tasted real good too, with chocolate chips in the sponge and chocolate spread between layers. I must admit the white icing was ready-rolled, but I made the ducks myself.

Old Queenie came to my home town last month with was the most exciting thing ever to have happened to me ever. Unfortunately the press set up their cameras and step ladders right in front of us so the view wasn't very good. But luckily tall friend was on hand and he managed to snap this beaut of a photo.

I'll try to get back to outfit posting this month. I haven't been feeling very inspired by clothes recently, and that paired with a complete lack of money equals me not dressing so good. But I'm feeling more positive about things now so I should be able to get the fashion side of this blog up and running again. Peace out.
