Walks and Ponytails.

I was in the process of writing this blog post yesterday when my boyfriend Ross pulled the plug on my laptop and forced me to go on a walk. I wasn't happy to say the least but admittedly I really did enjoy the walk as it was such a lovely evening and there was practically no one about. If you follow me on instagram (safiyamarie) then you can have a looksee at some picture we took. 
 
Dress: H&M
Cardigan:Saved from being chucked out

Moving away from being forced to do exercise here is what I wore to my friends house on Thursday. I took these photos when I got back hence the flash and what not. I don't think they turned out too bad but I do prefer my normal shots. 


I bought this dress a couple summers ago and wore it for the first time at a house party. I ended up getting rather drunk and jumping out of a window (it seemed the best idea at the time) and catching the dress on the side of the window resulting in a giant hole. Upon discovering the giant hole I cried. A lot. 

I'm proud to say that I've recovered from the traumatic event and have since patched up the hole. 


I'm also wearing a cardigan? Waistcoat? Wooly thing without sleeves? Seriously someone one help me out here. Anyway, I retrieved this item from a bag of my dads clothes that my mum was chucking out. I just love throwing it over otherwise 'boring' outfits and is great for the summer if it's a bit nippy but not nippy enough for a cardigan. 


Going off track here, but wasn't the Olympic Opening Ceremony awesome? Well apart from the hobbit bit at the beginning of course. What did you guys reckon to it? Personally the best bit was the giant blow up Voldemort, I mean how awesome was that?



Just as a bit of a dread update: they're coming along nicely though some of them are still wrapped in wool and I've banded the roots of some of them as the roots are a tad loose. I guess only time will tell. I've decided to leave my top layer of hair loose as I think it suits my face better and still allows me to do other things with my hair. Perhaps I'll dread the whole of it in the future, we shall see.


Ross did my hair for me yesterday before we went on our walk, it turned out really pretty don't you think? I might have to enlist his help with my hair more often. 

Here's the Beatles:



Because I've had this in my head all day.

  7. It's good to get away from the computer screen! I seem to have a hard time doing it though. I need a boyfriend to get me out of the house, I guess!

    Also, isn't it the worst when you tear clothes you love? I just found an awkward boob hole in a favourite shirt (how it happened, I have no idea!) and am in great distress over it...
