Spread Your Wings.

I'm currently working my way through a bag of mint Werther's Originals and quite frankly they are delicious! My sweet tooth just cannot be contained. I'm going to be one of those people that just lives off sweets at university. With no teeth. 

Anyway, my car boot venture at the weekend went pretty well if I do say so myself. I picked up a couple items and will share them with you as soon as they're out of the wash. As much as I love charity shops and car boots the clothes always stink. Always. So a quick spin in the washing machine is a definite must.

Dress: Charity Shop
Cardigan: Internationale (back in the day)

 This dress is one I picked up a while ago from a charity shop and posted about in my charity shop treasures post. I must admit I don't know why it took me so long to finally wear it. Its a gorgeous dress (even if it does make my boobs look a tad too big) and is great for both summer and winter. I can see myself getting a lot more wear out of it in the colder months by layering it with wooly tights and thin tees underneath.

Here I paired it with a lemon yellow cropped cardigan that I have had for literally years. It's great for throwing over pretty dresses without ruining the shape of the dress. I love the cropped length as it sits nicely on the waist and looks really flattering.

You may notice that my hair looks different. And by different I mean more curly and just darn right pretty, haha. I got my hair like this in one of the simplest ways possible: a french plait. Literally just got out of the shower and plaited it whilst it was wet then took it out in the morning, ta da! I really like how it looks and don't know why I never thought of doing it before. The plait even made my dreads go curly and it lasted right until the next day without any hairspray at all. Score.

So expect to see curly locks more often.

*Another interesting way to show off my rings*

I've been busy getting things sorted for university today but I feel like I'm a lot more on top of things now. I picked my modules for my English course and then threw in a beginners Arabic course as a wild module. Gonna have three languages under my belt then, hell yeah. I also bought my freshers week pass thingy which I had to use my overdraft to pay for. Can't wait to have all my loans and bursaries. Just going to be rolling in it, haha. 

Just going to say a big hello to my new followers, welcome to the ever growing family. I reckon as a way to thank you all I might to a post dedicated to all my fave blogs and what not. What do you think? 

In the mean time have some of this:

Because this has been in my head all week.
