Dancing on my own

Term is finally over and it's eerily quiet in work. All the students have gone home so Cathays is like a ghost town, very odd. It does mean that I work 9-5 instead of 10-6 so I have more time in the evening to myself. I have joined the gym (shocking behaviour) and I've been reading some great books (some trashy ones too). Got any book recommendations for me?

I feel like I can be a little more casual in work over the summer because there aren't many people in so I wore some shorts and converse today, nice and comfy.

casual, shorts, new look, floral jumper,


Jumper: New Look
Shorts: Primark
Shoes: Converse c/o Spartoo

Been enjoying some quality time with Sookie and watching loads of E! with my brother, loving my three day weekends. I'm not going to spend my whole summer at home though, going to see Marina and the Diamonds (eeek!) and Kate Nash next week.

I'm going out with some lovely people from work this weekend to Jamie's Italian in Cardiff and I've got a 30th birthday party to go to. Just need to decide what to wear now...

p.s. got lots of ASOS Curve things on ebay

  2. Aww Sookie! Love your outfit :) I've got loads of books to take on holiday, most excited to start reading The Snow Child and The Night Circus (although they are both hardbacks so are taking up plenty of room in my case!)
