Hollywood infected my brain

The shorts I mentioned (ranted about) in the last post are finally in my possession! I'd honestly lost hope and then whadd'ya know - BAM! I went to a different topshop and reluctantly asked if they had any left in stock, expecting to be disappointed once again, but oh no! There they were, in all their fantastically peculiar glory...


Btw. are we all liking the larger image sizes?? I finally mastered the HTML thingy and well, ta-dah!

I bought September's (UK) issue of ELLE magazine. A strange fact about me is that I read fashion mags from the back cover to the front. I don't quite know why, I think it's just easier to flick through, and I always get a little excited when I look back later and find a page I overlooked, tehe. I'm sure you all wanted to know that...

I also bought some black lace and purple velvet-like material from a market stall because I am going to (attempt to) make a skirt! This may turn out to be an epic failure as, just like many others, I start with the mantra "how hard can it be?" ... well with my vast inexperience on the sewing machine, clumsy nature and haphazardly disposition, lets just say a lot could go wrong...

Ooh I can't forget to say a super big hello to my darling new followers! You guys are all so amazing for letting me ramble on like this - hope every body's having a lovely summer (or winter if you're living in Australia!)

TTFN lovlies!

  14. Yes, I'm a figure skater. I did it on a competitive sport niveau and used to exercise five times a week... But this year I may put a stop on it and do other things. 'Cause it's a hard sport and lately I got interested in fashion and that stuff. :-)
    So it's nearly impossible to do both.
    Can you do jumps and pirouettes?
