he's a real live wire, he's the best of his kind.




my sketchbook from two thousand and eleven and one of todays efforts. i have missed making things, so today i sat down demolished a packet of tesco cookies, drank a cup of tea and drew for two hours. all my thoughts of missing my boy, money and everything else left my mind. i think I'm going to have to do this more often, its very therapeutic (catrin does the same with baking)
what do you do to relax lovelies?

i'm under your spell.







this beautiful little number from asos that was a steal at £20 and is for my boys ball in march, so being the little bargain hunter that i am i started looking for a dress in the sales and found this beaut, its a little big on the waist as they didn't have any eights so i settled for a petite ten (hence the belt). i have been experimenting with some accessories and i have settled on my accessorize clutch and my rachel simspon shoes that i was given as a gift from jo when i was working at bridal path (they're a little bit grubby so if anyone could give me tips on how to clean them that would be fab). i know its a couple of months away but i love an excuse to dress up and look for pretty things! 
sorry that you have to see my duvet cover as a background again, but halls are not a pretty place to take pictures.
I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself (feel like someone has kicked me in the ribs for some reason) i start my new timetable for uni tomorrow so hopefully i will get back into the swing of things quickly.

sweet nothings.



cardi:zara  shirt:new look  belt:gift  shorts:rokit  tights:marks and spencer








hello sweeties! just a few photographs of my life lately. there is a cheeky attempt at an outfit picture has got in there, i think I'm going to attempt to take more pictures of my outfits however halls are such a boring place to take pictures (they're also rubbish for light) and i don't think I'm brave enough to go out on the streets or so'ton with my tripod. i have developed a serious ebay ring habit really.need.to.stop! mama sends me little cards with messages in to cheer me up if I'm feeling a little down, love her! i haven't had much uni since i have been back so i feel like i have had a little bit of an extra holiday, kind of wish i had known before so i could have gone home and seen my boy and the fam a bit more but c'est la vie!

black treacle.

boots-£5.50

newlook-£4

primark-£3

topshop-£2.50

zara-£14.99

i braved the sales today with aston, i surprised myself with a couple of cheeky bargains. i am completely in love with my fur trimmed cardigan, it was originally £45.99 (i hardly spend that much on anything!) i almost bought the same shoes in river island for £12 so I'm glad i waited till i had looked round other shops first before committing! i think I'm going to call them my magic shoes!!
 how did you all do in the sales?

we put our feet where they had, had to go.









before i left to back to so'ton mama and i went to london, we saw the grayson perry exhibition at the british museum, sadly you couldn't take photographs in the exhibition (it would have been tricky anyway as it was very busy) however i enjoyed it as the craftsmanship was amazing and such high quality as well as being very detailed. we went for lunch at one of our favourite spots the cafe in the crypt and headed over to the taylor wessing photographic portrait prize exhibition at the national portrait gallery (one of my favourites). i had seen some of the photographs featured already in elle magazine but the whole exhibition was brilliant. 

hope everyones having a lovely start to their year.

somebody told the stars you're not coming out tonight.






happy new year lovelies! i went up for norfolk to stay at my aunty and uncles and had a quiet night in watching jools holland and drinking too much baileys. as my beautiful cousin phoebe is always willing to let me photograph her i made use of her and her collection of hats.

love livvy
