I've been after a bodycon skirt for ages, mainly to go under things and to wear with long tops. So when i was retuning a coat to H&M that i never wore to London, i thought I'd pick one up seeing as though it was only £3.99. I can't say I'd feel overly comfortable having a top tucked in, I'd probably add a cardi to cover the back. I seem to look bigger in the second pic too but i think that's just the way I'm standing. Anyways, i really like this plain tee from Zara, it's so comfortable and i have it in this colour too! I'm wearing a cute butterfly print necklace i got from Primark years ago, and my own Scrabble necklace.

So this week is half term (or 'reading' week as we're degree students). My aim for the whole week was to go in to college everyday and put together my rough samples. This was until college decided to close. Well, college is open, but our room is locked. For the whole flipping week! It's messed me up BIG TIME, because now I'm even more behind than i wanted to be. So for the rest of the week my aim is to start a couple of briefs, and pretty much do a plan of action for the next 3 months. Oh, and finish my dissertation and sort out a presentation for it too. I've also found out my tutor is in AUS for another week (5 in total), not really much i can say about apart from the fact i am so close to having a nervous breakdown.

I signed up for website called Brandalley months ago, for those who don't know it's site where there is cheaper designer clothes/make up/ home ware etc and you get an email when a new sale starts. I've used the site before, and i was just browsing this morning when i saw new Make up has been added. I know what it's like not wanting to spend a fortune on make up, so i thought I'd show you the offers they have at the moment. Usually i don't find anything I'd like, but i have to admit I'm pretty impressed with this sale! Just reading that back it sounds like it's been sponsored, i just want to point out that it's not, at all. I just really like the website and i know you would too!

  3. I think you look gorgeous. I'd have to say that being more shapely myself, the more fitted the skirt the more flattering it is. Which i guess makes sense. When I wear looser style skirts I'm just adding bulk to my hips. Bodycon ftw! x

  8. Such a cute outfit! That pink marle sort of color looks amazing with the black bodycon skirt, and it definitely was a bargain!

    Hope your college work goes okay. It sounds quite stressful, but I sort of know what you're going through - my boyfriend is bashing away at his dissertation as we speak!

  21. Je trouve que la jupe H&M te va super bien, ca met tes formes en valeurs et le petit t-shirt rose ajoute une touche décontractée.
    J'ai les mêmes t-shirts de chez Zara et ils sont en effet super confortables!
    Niveau cheveux, rien à dire, toujours au top héhé!
    J'ai essayé de me refaire la coiffure que tu avais faite pour la fashion week *massive fail*
    Tu devrais faire une video genre une tutoriale spéciale cheveux :)
    Ah oui, aussi, bonne chance pour tes cours!

    Hehe ,so now you can practice your french ;-)
