Animal Nitrate

Hello! sorry about the lack of outfit posts recently, my brother is the photographer and he is refusing to get up in the morning to take photos, how rude! So I've done a self timer effort on the fireplace, very professional non?
I wore this outfit to work yesterday because I'm doing a lot of shelving at the moment and sorting trolleys so I want to be in something practical and bending over to shelve books in a dress isn't a good look.
Top: Next
Cardigan: Asda
Shorts: New Look
Brooch: Accessorize

I've been wearing my orange YSL lipstick and gloss this week because it was quite pricey and I never wear it, it seemed like such a waste. I love it even though my mam says I look like La Roux. I really need to cut my fringe...

I wanted to show you this ace brooch that my brother bought me, it was on sale in Burton for £2! It pays to have a look in the mens accessories section,  Charlene from Dainty Dresses has a really cool key necklace from Topman and I wouldn't have really thought of looking in there.

My copy of Fat Quarter arrived yesterday and I was super excited and flicked through to find the article I wrote about Cardiff in it. Fat Quarter is a great magazine 'for, about and by intelligent, savvy, creative, crafty women' so check it out. 





What are your plans for the weekend? I guess a lot of you have exams at the moment so good luck with those!

  13. I love that stag brooch :) I only ever buy jewellery from topman and burton if they are reduced loads because it costs like £15 for a ring and they last like 2 weeks and the colour fades or they break... so I wait for sales when they are £2 haha :) xx
