So I’ve missed a few posts. The last few weeks have been filled with a mess of exams, misbehaving technology and holidays. If you follow me on instragram you probably know that I was in Madrid last week with my friends (which I might do a post on it later). But before that I finished high school and we had our prom.

A testament to how pretentious my school is they couldn’t just call it the Prom. Oh no, it was the Ave Atque Vale which is Latin for farewell or something. I’m not really one for school events or dances. The only reason I was excited for it was to see what everyone was wearing. Despite that it was quite fun. 

These pictures are all kind of rubbish as I didn’t leave enough time to take descent pictures. Some are a bit of a weird shape because I had to cut people out of them. I was going to sort of retake the pictures the next day but I had got my hair cut. It’s now short and I have a proper fringe that sits right.

I kind of regret wearing so much makeup; my foundation is way too full coverage for me and I could of even gone without it. I also regret not bringing a spare pair of shoes. The heels were really tall and I have no experience of heels. I could walk ok-ish in them when I was there and I even somehow managed to ceilidh dance in them without breaking an ankle (just). But when it came to walking outside, well I nearly broke the shoes. At least I didn’t fall…

I’m wearing:
Dress from Lindy Bop for £34.99
shoes from Debut for £26
Bag from Debut (old)
Earrings (very old)
Necklace (vintage)

I’m listening to:

I’ve gone back to my 365 day project (if you can still call it that) and should start doing round up posts for that again. Also my friends have recently found out about my blog and I don’t know if they are reading this, but if you are, please don’t watch my youtube.


  1. Wow, you look absolutely beautiful! I love your makeup and dress; it just looks so classy :) I'm not one for school events or dances either, but last year I went to my senior prom as well and I am so glad I did! It's a high school memory most people should have anyway! I hope you had a lot of fun! :D

  2. You look gorgeous! Though you may have not been the most comfortable in the makeup or the heels, you pulled them off so there is nothing to regret. Congratulations on your graduation :)

Raccoons and Ringlets

After we went swimming the other day, I just let my hair dry naturally. This produced what has been dubbed as my “triangle hair”. My hair usually curls tighter when I leave it, but I’ve been straightening it a lot more often and it seems to have melted my hair or something because the last couple of times it was just straight frizz. The lighting is terrible in all these pictures so if I look a little red that’s why. The jumper I'm wearing is from the men’s section. I find that guy’s jumpers are a lot warmer and the neck-line is so high, you don’t need a scarf. In Primark specifically, the men’s jumpers seem to be less itchy and wash a lot better as they don’t shrink as badly. The styles are usually very similar to the woman’s and they seem to be in more muted colours which is something I particularly like.      I'm wearing: Jumper from Primark (they are  usually  £6 but I managed to get mine at the start of summer for £3.)

Writers block

So I haven’t posted in the last couple of weeks. I had everything ready for posting back however many Thursdays ago it was that I was supposed to post this except for the text. I had no idea what to write for it. I am the first to admit that I'm not very good at writing for this anyway. I’ve never been very good with non-fiction writing. It doesn’t come very easily to me and nothing interesting enough to write about ever happens to me. But ever since people I know in real life started reading this, I feel as though I should be better at this; and my technique for things I don’t think I'm very good at yet, put them off until last minute. One thing with not blogging as frequently as I promised is that even though I have had my hair short for over a month but I haven’t put any pictures up on here. I really like it; I'm even considering cutting it even shorter. I also want to dye it. I’ve never dyed all my hair a different colour; I had it dip-dyed r

M7974 at Ardoch Roman Fort

Last Autumn, I got a swatch of this lovely Atelier Brunette Viscose Crepe . At the time I was looking for a lining to a jacket (that I’m still working on) but it didn’t quite fit the bill. I absolutely loved the fabric though, so I kept the swatch. I had put off getting more to make a full garment because I didn’t trust myself to make something nice enough from it. At the time, I probably only sewed once a week for about 3 hours and the things I made were full of mistakes and dumb fabric choices. I’m going to stick some of these up on my blog at some point but even though I was proud of the fact I could make then, I didn’t really enjoy wearing the clothes enough to justify investing in nice fabric. Another issue was that I couldn’t decide on what to make from the fabric. I was jumping between a blouse or a wrap dress but none of my ideas felt perfect. I really liked the M7974 but I had it in my head that I only wanted to make view C in a light weight linen like fabric and
