back to blighty




top: topshop
skirt: H&M
necklace: rock n rose
rings: jwlry
lipstick: lime crime my beautiful rocket

HOME! The flight was a little hellish, quite a bit of turbulence and it just dragged like there was no tomorrow. I did however manage to complete to the third world of Angry Birds. Today I've been running my usual errands, picking up packages (had 7 to collect!) as well as taking a very charming (read:vile) photobooth photo of myself for my Young Persons Railcard. My hair was a "just released from a topknot special", I wish it looked like this all the time, but alas it doesn't. Its straight and flat. Boo.

  11. OMG U COPID MY TOP LOL. I think your photo is excellent, mine are always crap. Wish my hair would look like that in a topknot, always looks too 'done' when I do it! Do you start it off curly or straight? Makeup looks top notch too!

  46. Hello, Lily!
    Sorry for the comment out of question, but I was just wondering, what university are you attending? It's just that I was looking for a Graphic Desing course but found nothing I loved, but yours seem pretty fantastic! Can you give me the name so I can check it out? It doesn't have to be public, you can e-mail me to: gabuchita_@hotmail.com
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Haha tell me about it, I wish my hair looked like it does when I've just taken it out of a bun.
    I LOVE your outfit today, and in fact I've just featured you in a post about my favourite outfit bloggers. Would be lovely if you could have a look :)
