The Long Run


Ideally I would have worn this without the cardigan but I burnt my arms and got this weird shoulder tan line that I really do not want to get darker. So every day I'm in the sun it's a toss up between very accurate sun screen application or just bunging a top over it. I'll give you one guess which one always wins.
I love this top, even if my boobs make the dog's face look weird.

I feel like forgetting my blog's b-day two years in a row is pretty terrible. I know it's in July.
I just forget the exact date.
It was the 10th.

I feel like a terrible parent.

Happy Birthday Blog.
3 whole years of busting buttons.

Tennis Court

Things I like about this outfit is that when the heat gets, well, hotter, I can strip til I'm just in the jersey and lounge around my house like the sloth I truly am. If I'm honest, I did that pretty much as soon as I'd taken these photos. Maybe one day I'll OOTD that instead, if y'all are interested in seeing another British person deal terribly with the summer heat we all moan about not ever getting.

So whilst this is neither exciting nor particularly well shot. Here is a post. I'm enjoying the sunshine but it doesn't exactly inspire me style wise - I feel like clothes are evil if I'm honest.

Rings Rings Rings


The thinner ones are from a multi-pack but that chunky bad man was a 50p bargain I picked up whilst waiting to pay! I love it so much I may have to have a silver version made when I can afford it. Yeah, that's gonna have to happen.

Honesty is the best policy.
Honesty is my best policy.
Honesty is my best and only policy.
2013 has been a funny one so far. Looking back it's hard for me to say if I've had a good year or not.
Wait. No. Nope.
I've had a good year, I know I have, but I guess what I'm trying to say is that I haven't always been in the best state of mind where recognising the good things has been easy. And I realise that this blog isn't often a serious one but I owe some form of explanation as to why I've been so rubbish. And that's it.
I've been in a right funk.
And I think that's okay.

But if my choice to resume blogging means something, it's probably that my funk is getting distinctly less funkier.
So here's to the future.

Keep On Truckin'

My housemate wouldn't take photos unless I did some errr, "quality" posing, hence the two middle pictures m'kay.

All That She Wants


I don't know how you're supposed to wear this. It feels like something I should wear to bed, which is probably why I like it so much. I'm not usually game for clothes with random writing, and two people have already asked why I have a top with "Chips Life" written on it. I wish it said chips life, it would match my personality better than Ohio Life.
I've never been to Ohio, I don't know much about it. But chips, I am a professor of chips.

So I suppose it's not unfair to say that part of my prolonged absence was down to the weather.
Don't call bullshit just yet, I promise it makes sense.
It has been cold. Very cold. Cold as balls.
And I have basically been wearing the same thing every day:
Layers, warm/sensible boots, scarf, hat, coat.
I mean I am buying less and less clothes these days because quite frankly, eating is more important! So I just recycled the same 4 outfits this winter. With very little variation.
So yeah, warmer weather means more options, thus, more blog.
Also, summer clothes tend to be cheaper due to them not needing to be made of whole bears or whatever.

I'm glad the ice age is over.

Details of lipstick can be FOUND HERE!!!

Here It Goes Again


So, it's been a while.
Have a mildly pissed off looking photo of me.
No excuses or long winded explanation. Just life, real life, getting in the way like it does sometimes.
I'll try not to leave it so long next time :)
Hope everyone is smashing!

Happy Song

First day back at Uni after a few weeks break and it's an odd but good feeling. I feel a bit out of the swing of things and I've missed people a lot but I'm excited. All my modules are ace this semester and I'm just ready to bring my A game and learn, cos learning is fucking cool. 


The whole below the knee skirt thing is a bit weird for me but I'm loving it with my new chuck t's (thank-you 25% student discount at ASOS!!) It's really sunny today so I've dressed like it's warm but I bet outside is actually going to be awful and I'll have to cover this up with a huge coat. Ugghh.

It has finally arrived.
My Icelandic friend Elín thinks it's hilarious "2cm of snow and England is in chaos." and my house mate Phil who works for a supermarket laughs about people panic buying: "They've taken all the vegetables, the only thing left is peppers."
I love snow.
I've spent a good few winters now relying on the fur coat and docs combo. It is timeless and always a winner for warmth.Which is good. Because Worcester is blatantly entering a new ice age.The other amazing thing about DM's is the grip. Like Dude, I NEVER FALL OVER! Big Love for these boots.
On my last OOTD post I had a shitload of comments and page views and, just, everything really. And I wanted to say thanks :) AND KEEP IT UP! I freakin love you people!

All Work & No Play

Well, Christmas and New Year lulled me into a false sense of security RE work and uni and deadlines. And now here I am, fresh from a full days research in the library eating crisps and soup for tea and wrapping up in more layers than you can shake a stick at (I am poor and heating is expensive, creys).
I have two weeks off between semesters after this week and my plan consists of a lot of sleep, gaming as a way to stay in touch with the BFF in Exeter (also, I am an out and proud nerd). But most importantly, i plan on giving the ol' blog some new vizualzzz and chucking together a few posts.
Don't get too excited guys, no need for balloons or cake or anything.

Actually, cake would be nice.

Bringing this coat back from the depths of my wardrobe was either a great or terrible decision. It's really fucking old, it's broken and to be honest it might be about as fashionable as wearing a plastic bag as a hat.
Buuuuut, it is also warm, comfortable, surprisingly easy to wear with most outfits and comes with pockets full of teenage angst (well, Tesco receipts from when I was at college actually but that's basically the same thing).

I bought this top from ASOS what must be years ago now and I've nearly gotten rid of it so many times but something always makes me hold onto it. Not sure if it has appeared on here before or not but I honestly can say I still don't know how I feel about it.
 Yay or Nay?

I've noted a real absence of comments on the last few posts, I mean page views are at an all time high (thanks BTW!) but there's no vocal response coming.
I love hearing from readers, no matter if you've just dropped in for one post or are a regular and if commenting here doesn't suit you please feel very welcome to tweet or Tumblr me instead.
I also am very welcoming to suggestions for BMB, is there something in particular you'd like to see?

Teen Idle


I felt very much like I was inspired by my 16 year old self this morning. I'm wearing my Dad's "cool skull earring" in one ear and a classic pearl stud in the other. I have silk flowers in my messy up do and I've thrown a cut up home tie dye top over a dress. Add to that the fact it's freezing and I thought a hoody was a sufficient coat. I've basically regressed. I look back on most of my style choices with absolute embarrassment, but sometimes I can do a bit a of a throwback and not throw up.
