24 3 09

Phew! It feel like it's been forever since I last did a proper post! I have been so busy lately I just haven't found the time. As well as working in the shop, I am now the official blogger for Vivien of Holloway!! Woop! You can read the blog here.

I was buying a birthday gift for my mum earlier in the month and spied a lovely dress in TopShop that I had to get. I mostly love it for the print, which reminds me of tea parties, but it's also made from jersey which makes it super soft and so comfortable to wear. The weather was nice for a while but has been getting rubbish again lately so I have put myself in a more idyllic location!



I also spent a whopping £16 on magazines! Oops!! The first one was Lula, which is the first ever issue I have bought and I was not disappointed! It has the most beautiful photography I have ever seen.



And the second one was a magazine called Amelia's Magazine, and it said it was the last issue that they were ever going to publish so, of course, I had to have it! I flicked through and it looked really cool, with loads of illustrations:









So, how have you all been? Done anything exciting lately? xxx

That dress is gorgeous!

And great choices for the magazines. I bought Amelia's magazine a while back - isn't it great? It's worth the price since it's so jam-packed with content! Shame it's the last issue though :(
I'm hoping to get Lula very very soon.

Those magazines look cool, just look at them as an investment. Might plump for Lula next time I get paid. Have you found anything interesting in the shop? Might pop in next time I'm in London, it sounds cool. Annoyed today as I lost the scarf that I knitted, so may have to knit it again, so not a very interesting day.

I want to go to wherever it is you photo shopped yourself, it looks beautiful! I'd also like my Lula magazine but alas I'm still at university and my subscription gets mailed home..
