to the end of time







gilet: forever 21
dress: my yard *
necklace: forever 21
rings: jwlry and market stall
nails: models own juicy jules and OPI Rainbow connection

I have a thing about red and black at the moment. Taken over my obsession with black and pink and now all I want is red everything! Must have some psychological meaning behind it or something! Pretty terrible quality images, but it was actually so dark when I took them I had to over expose them, which obviously has made 'em a bit odd! Oh well!  This is the fur gilet I've been mentioning alot recently, Cant remember if I've actually worn it on here or not though! I'm tempted to order a few things from Forever 21 online, but I've not ordered with them before, if anyone has lemme know in the comments! Im really curious about their delivery times/returns!

Went shopping with my lil' stepsisters today to get my Dad his birthday present (some boots from Clarks, which cost £70, reduced to £34!) then I popped into Topshop and found this coat which I've wanted for ages. I nearly bought it full price during the summer, but when I saw it in my size and reduced to a mere £15, I knew it was meant to be! Had a mega fatty KFC and then we had a sly trip to pets at home to coo over chinchillas and bunnies!

  16. Loving the red and black Lily, still kinda festive!

    I think chinchillas are one of my favourite animals, they're like oversized mice with fur like velvet... amazing!
