I am a bit squinty in these snaps so I apologise, not actually giving anybody the evil canevils through my blog, ha. This is what I wore today on a little trip into town to sort some bits and bobs out. I ran into a friend from college in Primark and it was lovely to see her, we did some shopping together and had a cup of tea in Costa. I bought some new knickers, two really sweet notebooks from H&M and the cut out swan print dress from Topshop in the sale for £20. Very naughty purchases to add to the list this month. Opps.

As you may have read I have been on the hunt for my dream leather jacket for months. I bought the studded Topshop beauty on payday but refunded it a few hours later after I found this baby in H&M for £30, less than half the price. I have also really gotten in my new H&M hat over the last week, I love how it just adds a smart touch and hides the clips from my pinned back fringe. I have had this Topshop dress for SIX years, how crazy is that!? It still fits me and I still love it, especially with this little shirt underneath it. I used to wear it in exactly the same way at college, funny how things come back round again.

I've been busy working away again this week. I have also landed myself a new writing position over on the Propaganda Blog, my first piece on the band Deap Vally was published last week. In two weeks I will also be having a trial fortnight at 1883 Magazine, who I already write for, to be their features intern. I am super excited to start and really want it to go amazingly.

Todays song is the Arctic Monkeys cover of The Beatles 'Come Together' from the Olympic opening ceremony. I think the lads did an amazing job and seeing them on that stage giving it some but still looking so cool made me fall for them even more <3 p="p">
