Sob Sob, To go with the fact my laptop is super glitchy and not working properly, hence why I couldnt post yesterday, and now to make things worse my cameras lens has broken. It wont auto focus correctly, so I have to keep manually resetting it after each photo. Basically effort, it still works but it makes things take 100 times longer to do. Forked out the money to get another one while muttering under my breath about shoddy expensive cameras and how nothings built to last (sound like my Granny!) so I should have another in a few days.

Today I've been chilling, havn't had much to do today so I've spent hours causally browsing the internet and writing blog posts, As you do. Just went for something easy, its really cold in my house so I wore my trusty massive grandad cardigan that I got for a pound! Its literally the warmest thing I've ever worn! Im well and truely obsessed with that Primark skirt too, shamefully worn in about 5 times since I bought it last week!

Posted about Octobers Glossy Box on my other blog today!

  14. the exact same thing happened to my camera lens after my friend dropped it :( (i have a canon 450d) but after about six months it's started working properly again (though not nearly as quickly as it used to). Such a pain having to manual focus everything!

  16. Lovely all-black look! I went into Primark in Birmingham yesterday in search of that skirt and that black jumper you had the other day but, alas, couldn't find it :'( That nail polish is crazy cool!
    Know how you feel with your camera frustrations. Mine's had a busted display screen for two years.

I'm definitely going to try and find the skirt in Primark this week too :) Shame about your camera, I've had problems with mine this week where it wouldn't autofocus on manual mode.

  46. You look so great in everything and I truly agree with the statement nothing is built to last. I find myself getting a new Laptop and Phone every year! Along with every other thing that breaks for no reason.
