Lookbook / Chictopia

So i didn't actually wear this skirt today, because i would of frozen to death, but i after finding it at the back of my wardrobe i thought I'd bring it out for some photos. I've teamed it with a blue Primark jumper which i have also have in this colour & this one. I was taking some nice photos, then got a bit giddy and decided this pics were too silly to not use. I also have straight hair for the first time in months, which has made me realise just how much it needs a right good cut. Must sort that out in the new year!

Myself and Matt decided to to the rest of the Xmas shopping, well in Matts case actually start it. I wanted to get in to town and back nice and early so we missed all the manic shoppers. I actually woke up at 6am so getting myself sorted wasn't that difficult this morning! The post office was empty, and we manged to get in and out of the shops in less than 3 hours. Just as it started to get busy! I'm so impressed and so very happy.

All the Christmas Scrabble orders have now been sent, but I'm still taking ones for after Christmas. After working it all out and realising just how many scrabble tiles i actually have i've manged to drop the prices, so massive yay all round!

We had about an inch of snow last night, so it wasn't a great amount, but it seems like a good enough reason to stay indoors and do nothing. Matt had all his deadlines yesterday, so this afternoon we've decided to just major chill out, watch films, eat rubbish food and will probably play the playstation. I'm going to try so hard to get some uni work done this week, but i can tell you now I'm already in total Christmas holiday mode. Roll on Thursday, because then ima coming home!

(thanks for your amazingly supportive comments in my last post, it means a lot)

  9. I love, love, love that skirt!!
    How clever getting up early to beat the crowds, I'm too lazy/disorganised to do that, though I think I have nearly all of my shopping done!

    You're chill out day sounds perfect, Mark has exams after Christmas so his days are spent studying, I get slotted in for evening attention! Supposed to be going out tonight but the snow might mess that up, wah!

    7 sleeps 'til Christmas! :D

  23. You look so lovely in movement shots! I think this is a nice departure from your more static poses. Congrats on the Xmas shopping.

    Also, I got the same annoying self-serving blog promotion comment on my blog that you did on this post. >_<

  28. Was so impressed when I read on your twitter you got in and out of town in 3 hours! especially with a boy in tow... JEEZ they do not know how to zip in and out of crowds like we do! I wish I had a pretty skirt like that to 'swish' about as SJ has mentioned above. xx
