stay real











skirt: primark
jumper: primark
necktie: H&M
watch: swatch
nails: elegant touch french nails * (review here)

Been working non stop today. Feels like I have little projects and jobs coming out of my ears, my to-do list is slowly getting ticked off though! Good Job I'm a Taurus and a ~workaholic~ or I probably would have lost the will to live. Keeping organized and top of things while freelancing has been a BIG learning curve! I've always been focused, but its just weird not having someone infront of you saying "do this this and this" its more like me shouting at myself saying "YOU MUST DO THIS NOW"! Like a Boss.

  7. Ahaha, I can find it really hard to motivate myself sometimes. Damn, I want that skirt so much! Also - I've had my eye on that watch for aggggessss but am determined to find one exactly like it but with a leather strap... thinking I should just give up and go to Swatch!

  31. I have side projects coming out of my ears as well. Every night I come home from work and then its a quick tea (esp if its at 9pm) then I start/continue a side project. I've managed to check off a couple though :).

    I love the primark jumper as well. I'm not really a jumper person but after buying one from my work, I think i'm in love :).

    Have a great week

    PS: I think I will buy the cat onesie from Primark that I saw the other day and tweeted about :)
