Flowers, ripped tights and computers
Well, it's been nearly a month since I've last updated the blog but I have good reasons. The first being the home Internet completely broke down and was only fixed yesterday. The second being I was working so much (10 days in a row) as I was helping out the boyfriend's mum (a florist) in a new wee adventure (which made me appreciate flowers a lot more even if my hayfever tablet was continually put to the test) while working my Saturday job in a school uniform shop (not extremely glamourous). And finally the graduation which was a drama in it's self though I am pleased to admit I didn't trip however I have been told that I did dart across the stage quite quickly (for photos). I went with clear nails, the dress from rise fashion, river island new shoes which my mum commented on being very Carrie Bradshaw and my green and navy necklace which ended up complimenting my gown ironically. I went with my hair having ghd curls which left the car journey up to graduation not the most pleasant with 'we are not going to make it' and 'I'm not getting out of the car because I've just ripped the only two pairs of tights I've brought with me' (how the boyfriend puts up with me I'll never know). Anyway it was a blast, the weather was gorgeous (if a little too hot) and the food was lovely in the hotel we ate at. The next day being extremely knackered the boyfriend and I went to Ikea and B & Q which on reflexation seems a bit daft. However went to Ikea for a Television stand for the boyfriend's pad and came back with a magazine rack for the fashion magazines that are currently taken over the apartment and which a certain someone (i.e. me) refuses to get rid of. In relation to more fashion-y news I have just fallen in love with new gladiator sandals out of river island and as I do not currently own a pair of flip flops or summer shoes I see them as a first priority. Also loving Time for new clothes (tfnclondon.co.uk) tempted to buy a black lace dress for the wedding evening reception on the 1st August though not sure if you can wear lace or black, anyone know? I think that is about it well all I can remember for the meantime, will have some graduation pics up soon.
Hi. My name is Helen and I am a 22-year-old journalism graduate with a passion for fashion especially vintage. I believe everyone is stylish in their own unique way and in fashion there are no such things as a mistakes. I am currently interning at a local fashion magazine and hope that one day I'll be a fully fledged fashion journalist but at the moment I'm having fun learning life's little lessons.
