MY MERCURY IN RETROGRADE.






Hello everyone! I feel like my posts have been a little slap dash over the past couple of weeks. Not so much lacking but somewhat irregular. It's because I've been like Super Woman dashing here, there and everywhere. In between working, eating, sleeping and doing coursework, probably in that order, I haven't had the chance to sit down and take proper pictures or write a really long post or if I have, they've not been at the same time. Anyway, I'm here now so I suppose that's the important thing.

I just wanted to say thank you to you all for the great response to my reflective post "Dreams unwind, love's a state of mind." I was really nervous about putting something like that up because I didn't want to come across all high and mighty or bitchy  at all and seemingly, it was taken in the way it was meant, so thank you. Unfortunately, I'm still getting the old "Let's follow eachother." comments which I am about to go on a deleting spree of. Perhaps I'll have a wall of shame! I am of course joking, but please do be considerate in comments girls.

Ok, so onto the outfit; I'm just wearing some Topshop dungarees and a H&M shirt. I don't own many shirts/blouses so I'm always a bit apprehensive about wearing them and whether or not they suit me but I do really like this one. It's just a bit quirky  and can really make a run of the mill outfit stand out. I love my Topshop dungarees. I was uhm-ing and ah-ing about whether or not to buy these for weeks until about a month ago now, I decided to take the plunge and I definitely made the right call because I love them. I bought them a size up because I like the baggy look where dungarees are concerned but it turns out that they're quite baggy as they are so in hindsight I may have got my usual size 8 (these are a 10 for reference). I don't know if you find sizing for reference helpful. I know that sometimes when I see an outfit post I want to know what size the blogger has gone for so I can get a rough idea of what to order if I'm doing it all online- particularly if something is oversized so do let me know if this is something you'd like me to carry on with.

Make up wise I'm wearing Bourjous Healthy Mix Serum in 52, an MUA dark brown shadow for my brows, L'oreal Falsh Lash Telescopic mascara, Revlon PhotoReady cream blush in Coral Reef and L'oreal Rouge Caresse lipstick in 401 Rebel Red.

I hope you're having a lovely day what with the sun shining and all. Alex has had the day off work today so we went and had a lovely little pub lunch. I'm now back at mine ready to crack on with some more coursework- two down, three to go. Fingers crossed that the sun stays out for the rest of the week so I can go and do my work in the garden.
