Wednesday's outfit; didn't really do much, just a bit of uni work and shopped for the rest of my Halloween costume - 1 more day! Oh, and excuse the hair...sometimes I go out in public with wet hair!
We've been tagged! This time by the lovely Victoria-Olivia of Kiss My Sass. It's called the happy tag, the rules are; mention the person who nominated you. list 6 unimportant things that make you happy. tag 5 blogs. state the rules. notify them with a teeny comment on their blog that they have been nominated.
Ok, so six unimportant things that make me happy;
1. Naps. I nap most days if I have the time!
2. This robot dog in my Mum's office, she works in the University in a sort of geeky computer department and they have one of those i-dog things, it dances and fetches its little toys. It cost £1,600 though so no chance of getting my own!
3. Thinking about my future. Sometimes really far ahead like when I'm old and grey, will I have acomplished everything I want to. Sometimes only as far ahead as Graduation or the middle of next week.
4. A nice cup of tea.
6.Tuna sandwiches. My favourite food!

I am in such a happy mood this week, for a number of reasons! My mouth is ALMOST completly healed, hooray! Been a tough few weeks, so take my advice people; TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR TEETH! DO NBOT TAKE THEM FOR GRANTED!
I do realise this whole surgery thing was NOT my fault but let me just say, when you've been through the annoyance and problem-atic issues with your teeth, it is NOT fun! brushbrushbrush peeps! I will never play hockey again after all of this! Not that i have, but just to re-assure, hockey is evil! (No offence to anyone who may play hockey who is reading this, but it's not as fun when someone raises the stick away up at their head and hits the person behind right in the mouth, at a very fast speed! Yup, thats what happened to me *sob).
Anyway, enough about that! Yesterday was an unjoy-ful meet up with my dad then shopping on my own, woop! I got the remaining things for my very good friends' birthday present. Then I popped into H&M and got myself (bad me!! I should be saving, ack well) a lovely wool dress and a cream lace shurg/bolero thing. I am currently wearing the dress just now so it will appear in my outfit pics!
Faux fur shurg; New Look. Dress; H&M. Tights; Primark. Boots; I cannot remember, possibly New Look too? Not 100% sure, oops. Bag; vintage (through eBay). I also have some jewellery one here which consists of a vintage pearl necklace (a gift), all my rings are from Accessorize (the bigger the better in my opinion! I adore huge stone, fabulous rings!) & my silver chain necklace is by Dolce&Gabbana, a gift from a close friend.
This look was also posted on www.lookbook.nu, check it out ^_^
Before I go, my sister had borrowed a friends mask for an art project she was doing, I simply HAD to put it on, look how FAB it is!
HOW amazing?! The feathers, the jewels. I wanted to change me entire Hallowe'en costume and go with this but i was not allowed as the mask is merely for show/display as it cost ALOT. Probobly better as I would've broke it or something.
3 whole weeks without a cigarette, how good am I?! Give me praise ;)
These are all from here, it's my favourite street style site - it lets you view Tokyo fashion by area, sweet!
These are just OMFG. No other words...
As are these;
The last two are both from Schuh. They're not cheap but boots are one of the few things I am actually willing to spend a bit on, since I tend to live in them! The second ones I guess could be DIYed...but I'd probably rather just buy them!

Did anyone see the new episode of Gossip Girl? Awesome...plus Blair's outfit with the green and purple (if I were an editor right now I'd say "jewel tones"...) makes me need something purple to wear with my new skirt.
ps We've had a little make-over, do you like it?

This was my outfit from Yesterday, Sunday. I had an amzing roast dinner at my Mum's (this picture was snapped in her bedroom!) don't know why I look so scary in the photo...and also chubby, I swear this skirt isn't as unflattering in real life!

I suppose the moral of the story (if there had to be one) is that shopping in your own wardrobe and re-discovering lost items is awesome. But real shopping is better.
ps It's not immediatly obvious so I should point out that last Halloween (see this picture Sea posted) I was supposed to be some sort of mid-eighties Maddonna, hence lace gloves! Basically I found an awesome '80s dress, fell in love and based my costume on the dress!

Again, apologies for lack of updates from me. I've had such a stressful week, both at home & at work!
Today however, is my day off and I did a little bit of looking around shops and seeing if I can purchase anything ^_^
Most of my money went on a very good friend of mine. She turns 21 next week, so a gift is of course needed. We are all going out on Hallowe'en for the b-day celebvrations, here is char and myself last year LOL;
I loved the colour of the fabric and took it instantly *woop*. Its also faux fur, kinda funny material, not sure which! But it is cosy, I think it shall look good with alot of things, such as day dresses and of course, I'll probobly wear it in the evning with a nice dress or top. It could also jazz up some jeans/smart top?
I also bought some Benefit make-up for myself (its pretty expensive but alot of people i know SWEAR by it, so I got some awesome concealer stuff that the counter girl - who was just, so lovely! - offered to put on for me and how to put it on so that itll maximise its use. And honestly, it SO SO good. So long to my usual Rimmel concealer *sorry Rimmel!*.
Here's my outfit from today's little shopping trip;
This photo does not really so this skirt justice, i love this skirt! It can be worn high waisted or on your hips - versatility is fab. Personally, I love wearing it pretty high up!
Shoes; Primark. Tights; also Primark!. Skirt; H&M. Top; Primark. Cardigan; H&M. Jewellery; gifts/accessorize/vintage.
The title of the post comes from where my clothes are from; cheap and cheerful places! & also from;

Just a quick post, an inspiration board/things I'm loving right now/that I own or want(!)

Excuse the weird pose! This is today's outfit, after being reminded of the comfort of these old boots I decided to wear them again today - it's not often my feet are dry, warm and not sore!
The skirt is actually a dress, from Topshop, I probably shouldn't wear it under t-shirts as it does make me look like I have waist! The t-shirt is from H&M and the tights are tightsplease, the studded cuff I bought in some random goth shop!

These boots were from Logo (Ican't even say it without an involuntary shiver of digust) last winter but I swear last year I wore them more than any other shoes I own...maybe time to bring them back? The socks are from Topshop, I love them 'cause they are so soft and the exact colour of ballet tights! The lace ribbon in my hair is from the local fabric shop. The tights are H&M, the dress is Zara and the neckalces are H&M and Topshop. I thought the little ballerina was appropriate;
Both taken from facehunter.
When I was little, I honestly though I'd grow up to be Princess Peach from Mario Brothers (a brunette version, obvs). Probably a sign that, even though I was a girly girl in the extreme, I spent a lot of time playing Nintendo games with my brother and his friends...also, why was she called Peach if her dress was pink?

I have not been updating this week as, on Monday, I had awful dental surgery. I mean, I've had some dental treatments in my time but MY GOODNESS this was really bad! I won't go into too much detail but now, my front gums are now all stiched up - HOW horrible?!!
Anyway, gross surgery aside, I cheere dmyself up today with a few purchases; (Both from New Look)
And earlier in the week;
Really rubbish pic, but they sold out on the website and my camera died of battery after taking a picture of the garments above, lol. They're from Topshop and I love them, lots! Comfy too.
Thats all from me, I'll do a better post later, when my mouth has completly healed!
They didn't have a picture of the Rr version (explanation of R here) but it does exsist!
