Hello again. I have had literally the craziest week, and am finally sitting in front of my laptop and able to show you what I've been up to. This week has been half term, and so I've been off from school (yay). I spent the first few days in my pyjamas, desperately trying to finish some long overdue artwork and various other schoolwork I have been meaning to do for about three years. On wednesday I met up with my school friends and went to Camden, where we took a few pictures and I did a little shopping (mainly american sweets from cyber candy...come on, where else can you get strawberry freddo frogs?!) Then on thursday, I met up with the amazingly dressed and super cool Sinead of Peppermint Whiskers. We looked pretty rad in our flower crowns, and as you can imagine attracted a few slightly confused looks from the less interestingly dressed people of Brick Lane.
Sinead is really awesome and so lovely, and as you can tell from these pictures her fashion sense is A*. If you aren't following her blog you are seriously missing out.
We thought we'd broken the rough trade photobooth because our picture wouldn't print, but it turned out it was just stuck on the way down. Also notice how I hadn't read the instructions and so was reading them in the first photo. oops.
Beyond Retro photobooth...hell yeah http://beyondretro.com/en/photobooth_cheshire
Picking out next seasons trends. Don't lie, you want that shirt.
I seem to have a problem with smiling and so end up grimacing in 99% of photos. The sofa is super cute though. (this & above photo taken by Sinead)
Presents from Sinead...we did a little in-person gift swap, and I got the cutest handmade collar, earrings and hairclips (will be in my next outfit post) a little heart cushion, CD & handwritten lyrics and a gorgeous illustration to name but a few of the lovely things she got me. It felt like christmas!
I ordered two little pins from the Etsy shop hoodratroughdiamond, and they came really quick and in the cutest envelope. I suggest you check the shop out!
Arrived home last night to a lovely letter from my new penpal Maija of The Sequined World. She is so lovely and wrote me the sweetest letter, and sent me a cute little hairclip and some bindis, both of which I am in love with and I'm sure will be seen lots in future posts.
second photo featuring lyrics by Sinead, pink bow and bindis from Maija, Green Day tickets, red clip, hair bow, cushion, card, feather, candles and balloon from Sinead.
Maija also sent me a Zine that bloggers from Galway publish every few months. It is so awesome and like a little magazine full of amazing fashion and photos...I absolutely love it, so much inspiration!
On Friday I went to my cousin's wedding, which was such a lovely day and went so well. The bride looked absolutely stunning in a 50s-ish white dress with a red netting underskirt, and they even had a pork pie wedding cake (pictured above). I also love the second picture of me and my cousin's girlfriend Dru, who is awesome and looked like a prom queen.
They had a little photobooth in the corner of the venue of the wedding reception, and so I ended up with these pictures which I love. I had an awesome evening, the highlight being dancing to Modern Love with the best man, fondly nicknamed auntie Jamie.
On saturday I saw Green Day at the Emirates Stadium...they were absolutely incredible, and let's just say I danced way too much and definitely should have gone to bed earlier, as today I woke up at half past two in the afternoon. So worth it for such a crazy week.
