X-Ray Spex

I had a lovely weekend filled with cocktails, dancing, hangover breakfast at Cafe 37 (best ever) and planning my playlist for the My Mad Fat Diary inspired 90s party I'm having in a few weeks time. I wore a lovely new French Connection dress on the weekend but I completely forgot to take a snap so you get me in some less interesting workwear instead sorry!

I also picked up my new glasses this weekend and after after the initial shock of wearing them again after five years of avoiding them, I think I quite like them. I picked up two pairs for £125 at Specsavers which is pretty good value. I can't buy mine online because I have a pretty weird prescription and I really didn't enjoy forking out that much money on such boring items. I moaned to my mum '£125 is half a Vivienne Westwood dress, four nights out, a weekend away!!' all true but I suppose my eyesight is very important and I wont be buying anymore for at least two years.

I posted a photo of me in my big tortoiseshell coloured ones on instagram on the weekend but I've mainly been wearing my purple Karen Millen ones to work as they are a bit more business like and professional.

Too much time on my hands posing in my new glasses...

I need a bit of help too, my current phone has really low internal memory and its driving me insane because I have to delete things all the time and I've tried moving all my apps to the SD card. I fancy the Galaxy Samsung which I can get on www.phones4u.co.uk any one know if it's ok? I'm useless with anything technology related and usually drop my phones in a sink of running water or lose them so don't want anything too expensive.
