Besides the dresses mentioned in my last post, I also bought some shoes (the 6 pairs pictured above), a cheap parka from Primark, a super cheap black miniskirt from Topshop, a petticoat, a real leather jacket, a lipstick, 3 books, 2 magazines, loads of tights, a lip balm and a pillow case. Phew, quite a list right?
Yesterday we just got back from London and our trip was amazing. I’ll do a recount of it in another post (I don’t have all the photos yet) but since I couldn’t wait to share at least something with you, here all the stuff that I bought! London is a major shopping event for us. In the photo above are all of the dresses I purchased. Yup, I bought 9 dresses. I also bought some other wonderful things but in this post it’s all about the dresses: Continue reading London Shopping Pt. 1
The day of my exam I bought this lovely playsuit over at Topshop and I originally picked out two more dresses but then I decided only to buy the playsuit. It was the last one available and it’s two sizes bigger than my size but I thought I’d just adjust it with mmy sewing machine at home, but when I tried it on later that day, I decided the only thing it really needed was a belt to clench it in (also getting rid of the cut-out, I’m not really a fan of cut-outs). I wore the playsuit Wednesday night to go to the movies. It was a great night and I was so happy to have my exam done with.
Friday M and I went to dinner and then I stopped by H&M to buy a pair of shoes as the ones that I was wearing were KILLING me. The irony that they were a casual pair of flats is not lost on me. I think I generally get waaaay more blisters from flats shoes than I’ve ever gotten from heels. Continue reading Leopard Print is a Neutral
So I postponed my pending exam that was to be this Tuesday for health reasons (I had a pretty bad fever over the weekend and still am sick now but it’s gotten better). It’ll be on the 25th instead (and I have a different exam on the 23rd and a dentist appointment on the 24th, urrghh!) so on the one hand it’s great to have more time but on the other if I hadn’t been forced to just sleep and do nothing over the weekend, I’d have preferred having my exam over with. But life is what it is. No time to feel sorry for myself, I still have today to get better and then I need to do some SERIOUS studying. I don’t know how much blogging I’ll be able to do but hopefully I’ll manage a couple of posts.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, we visited London again in July 2012 for another wonderful vacation (although it had rained almost entirely throughout our trip). This time we stayed for 6 days (5 nights) so we got to experience a tad more than on our first trip. The photo below is one of my favorites from our trip because that dog was adorable and oh so cuddly and also because it is the only photo I have of that scarf (which I sadly lost during this trip).
There’s still a whole month left before M and I go on vacation. But in the midst of “studying” (I need to up my game as I’ve been slacking off too much lately!), I’m daydreaming of our pending London adventure and remembering the trips we have taken in the past. So today I thought I’d post my favorite photos from our past London visits.
