As a sort of reward to myself after exams I went into town with a couple of friends for lunch and allowed myself to actually spend some money! Only at the charity shop though, obviously. The first thing I saw as I walked through the door was this Warehouse shirt in a size 10. I'm sure I remember seeing the same one actually in store not all that long ago, which may have been what drew my attention to it. It is a little tight around my chest and the buttons do bulge a bit if I move my arms weirdly, but other than that it fits pretty well. I really like it buttoned all the way up for a more quirky look.
shirt- thrifted/originally Warehouse, everything else- as before
hair bow- H&M
Best buy- a pair of boots! £3.75 from the charity shop. I have similar ones which you can see to the right in this photo but they have little heels, so I though as these are flat they would be more practical for walking on days out and such like. Mainly, as usual, I was thinking about the art trip to Paris in October! I now have plenty of clothes and shoes to keep me comfy yet relatively stylish whilst walking around loads of art galleries and museums.
Mum took me for a haircut in the evening, and they straightened it so it looks really long! Sorry about the rubbish photo but I only remembered to take one right before I went to bed.

I have also made one more plushie since I took these photos which is quite blue with a pink gingham background and a denim section around the eyes- it reminds me of something old american style, but maybe that's just an English stereotype haha!

I don't usually like candid photos of myself, or generally many photos of my by other people, so I really had to post this one taken by my brother when he hijacked my camera on the beach. Not only is it candid but i'm actually smiling and showing teeth which is something I would never have done a couple of years ago because I was so self conscious about my teeth. The reason for this was that my two incisors (?) are pointier than most peoples, so I thought that whenever I opened my mouth people were staring which obviously wasn't true. Although once at primary school I did have one younger kid come up to me in the playground, point at my teeth and say 'aaaaagh a vampire!' and then run away! It didn't particularly offend me at the time, I just laughed, but maybe that's part of the reason I was so self conscious??
I think this is one of the best things I've ever found in a charity shop! I used to be obsessed with jewellery and base my entire outfit around it, but for the past couple of years I just don't seem as bothered about it. I have a couple of simple necklaces which I wear often, but other than that having anything around my wrists or neck just seems to annoy me. I noticed this a couple of months back and decided that I had to find some cheap yet good quality vintage jewellery. Thing is, since then I've seen none whatsoever in the charity shops, and in 'proper' vintage shops in London everything is so expensive! But then yesterday I happened to glance over at the jewellery section in one of the charity shops, and alongside the usual bought-in cheap looking bangles was this beauty! It's fairly old and worn, and looks a bit like a mini tapestry around it. I've actually worn it every day since I bought it, which is saying something for me as it just goes with everything in a strange way. And it only cost £1.50! I don't think my love for charity shops will ever fail me....

These boots have been so great, I found them in a charity shop at Hunstanton for mere £2.50! Every time I've worn them since people have asked me where I got them, and is it bad that I kind of like saying that they were thrifted?? Haha, i'm one of those people who hates it when people have the same stuff as me, not because I want to stand out or anything but I would just rather my clothes only belong to me.

I got about three takes to do this one before we ended up leaving, but they all turned out surprisingly well compared to previous running photo attempts. My hair is growing out a bit more now which is great, especially for photos. This photo in particular reminds me of some of Hello Mr Fox's outfit shots, which by the way I loved!

So, we've put him in a big shrub pot with some small wire over the top so that he can't escape in the night, and he's currently curled up asleep at the bottom of the pot in the kitchen :) Sorry it's not a very good photo, but he moved so fast that they all turned out really blurry. Hopefully tomorrow we'll find somewhere to take him, whether that's to the owner or Woodgreen animal shelter.
Anyway I will be doing that post about my holiday at some point this week, it's taken me long enough! There will probably be a separate one about my pretty big charity shop haul, I did super well up there!
