Over and over again

January 3 2012

Mum : Where is your coat Shirley?
Me : It’s in the house mum, I’m just taking pictures. I’ll put it on when I’m actually going out later. Promise.
Mum : Hmph. Ok. Don’t come to me when you get a cold.
Me : You can’t get a cold from standing in the cold mum. You get it from an infection.
Mum : Silly girl.
My mum still doesn’t understand what we do here. Bless her.
This is me in my New snakeskin print waterfall dress. I’m so in love with it. I don’t mind wearing it over and over again.
I’m off back to Nottingham today to face the books! I am excited because I do miss my apartment, my little space, and just being in Notts!
However, I’m not so excited about the Calculus Exam that awaits me. Oh the Joy!
Dress : Topshop (Cici London)
Belt & Hosiery : Primark
Boots : Forever 21
Bag : Zara
Coat (In the House, lol!) : H&M

    That’s a really lovely dress, i’m tempted to order it. But since i have to pay to get it delivered here to Australia i need to find something else on the site i want 🙂

    Your hair looks amazing! Do you mind doing a review on the hair, where you bought it, how you take care of it etc. Oh, how much of your hair did you leave out?
