it's a bit of a vacuous one this week, but it ties in with my best friend (claire at little love), because as aforementioned on this blog, she has an addiction to all things hello kitty (click here to see a nail tutorial I did for Hello Kitty nails, as an ode to her)! i miss her terribly - it's like one of my limbs has decided to wander off and not to return!

Laura Marling - Ghosts

the perfect pair of black skinny jeans has been something of an elusive pursuit for the last 5 years (and no my friends, that is not a hyperbole) but FINALLY, the quest ended yesterday. i found the most perfect pair in PRIMARK of all places, though this should have been obvious, as my one pair of jeans - now with a hole in the crotch due to 4 years of wear - are also from the same souless emporium. they're super black, not stupidly skinny (AVOID the "super skinny" jeans unless you wish for your legs to resemble blackened sausages stuffed into denim) and have a wee bit of stretch, meaning they actually accomodate the large amount of junk in ma trunk! 

and the best bit? they were only £9! i unashamedly bought three pairs, to make sure i've got these for at least another 10 years. 

i also bought the loveliest blush pink skirt (£12), which is wonderfully high waisted and falls just exactly on the knee (i'm so switching the belt for a leopard print one though, as soon as i get my paws on one!), as well as a jewel encrusted cheetah on a long chain (£4). no doubt it will turn my neck an appetising shade of green and break me out in a rash, but i'll try the old coating-the-chain-in-clear-nail-varnish trick.

has anyone else found a holy grail item in primark?

ps. Silhouette Skies is having a celebratory 200 followers giveaway complete with wonderful prizes (a BOOK! clearly a girl after my own heart!)

third week, and they say that the third time is the charm! this week i confess that i sit here longing, and hoping that someone out there in the big bad world will think enough of me to surprise me with a floral bouquet.

Regina Spektor - Field Below

it's been almost week since my best friend (claire at little love) in the whole in entire world - and the world is indeed large - packed her worldly possessions into material rectangles and moved across the big blue expanse! while i'm stuck on a tiny island named Britain, she's basking in Mississippian sun, in the U. S. of A!

this widening distance has left me to enjoy my vegetarian-friendly jelly beans, alone.

has anyone else had their best friend escape halfway across the world? how do you cope?

Realize - Natalie Duffy (cover of Colbie Calliat)

everyone has a failsafe outfit - one that you can throw on and you KNOW that you look nice and feel comfortable (for there's nothing worse than spending a day tugging and pulling at your clothing, feeling uneasy because of the high chance of bum-cheek exposure)! 

this is my failsafe outfit. it's appropiate in almost all situations - shopping trips, eating out, a date, the pub, a family dinner - it covers ALL! this is my favourite skirt in my entire wardrobe because of the wonderfully bright colours and the shape is perfect!

skirt - primark, green leotard top - AA

what is your failsafe outfit?

Hugo - 99 Problems

today, i straightened my hair for the first time in two years (normally i sizzle the frizzy mess into spirals and curls with a curling tong) and it looks so peculiar! like long brown reeds or masses of muddy threads, all pin-straight!

i think i much prefer my waves? what do you think? are you fan of straight hair or curls?

Wednesday, 10 August 2011

this is the first ever wishing wednesday, and all i can do is to sit, squeeze my eyes so tight my face crinkles and wrinkles into a little ball of scrunched up mush and hope that my wish comes true!


there is just one other wish alongside mine, making two wishes for this week (one is lonely and three is a crowd, so i'm quite content for now) - thank you clairey-bestbud-sista from little love!


i would love to hear from you if you have a wish you'd like to share - just write it down, scan it/photograph it.create something pretty and email it to me at

Donny Osmond - Puppy Love

lily never needs or wants anything more from me other than kisses, food, walkies and plenty of cuddles. oh, and to hog my entire bed whilst pushing me into a teeny tiny corner (her limbs stretched out seriously rival my length of 5ft and a half inch!). who or what else do i need?
