I don't want to do college work so instead I will talk about artists and blogs and sale items.

I hate portfolios. And Unis. And Interviews. :(

However...Miranda July.
I love this woman. My arty farty friend Kendal got me to watch 'Me, You and Everyone we know' last night and, although there are so many things that either have no relevance to the world or are so deep that I just don't get them... I believe, in the hour or so that the film was played I connected with her amazing sense of humor and view of everything around her. The music is great, the characters are great and she is more than great. (I sound like an arty lesbian...)

After googling her today I found this quote which kinda sums up how I feel about the world -

"Life is just this way, broken, and I am crazy to hope for something else." 

So yeah...Not much more to say on this subject, I'll move on before I start rambling about love and life and stuff...

Another amazing thing I found today was this blog, or more specifically this post - Blair on a Budget - on Primark Latest offerings... I swear today is a day for extremes...I was SO HAPPY. I can't wait to go to primark..I especially love, on another of her posts, an amazing pair of high waisted skinny black jeans (something I've been on the lookout for, along with a few *perfect* blouses...) The other of my favourite items is the AHmazing floppy straw sun hat with the black band... I clearly plan to parade around all summer in beauifully printed dresses and crazy hats. Alot like this -

Right then - Sale Buys and Christmas Presents :D :D :D

 An outfit that looks much better on but I have had the chance to do an outfit post on it yet! The cardigan is from a Joules Outlet store, in the sale :) I'm not usually a joules fan but this cardigan caught my eye in the cold weather due to the thick knit and beautifully shiny gold buttons... This is actually a size 18 as I felt the 12 just was too short and I'm particularly partial to longer cardigans. The dress was from the amazingly chavvy company '24 Studio' (no offence to any fans, its just not usually to me taste...) but yes, another shock find, a beautiful ditsy print tea dress, fitted at the waist with a modest neckline. However I was disappointed by the length of this dress as it comes up just a little to short to wear without leggings when it gets warmer... Hmph!

 Been on the lookout for a nice winter coat for a while now, after losing mine sometime while looking for winter coats in town..FAIL. This one is amazing though, the teal colour sets off the crazy red hair I'm currently sporting while flattering my hourglass figure :) Win at £25 in the sale I think.

I was fairly amazed by the prices of these items, New Look and Republic were my favourite two sale shops this winter :D The shoes, from New Look, cost me a tiny FIVE POUNDS! I was so happy to find them as my giant size 8 feet rarely do well in the sales for actually nice shoes... I'm not sure when I'll pluck up the courage to go out in sky high heels though... :( 
The two Republic necklaces were kind of impulse buys, I love jewellery and have loads of it, even though I rarely seem to wear half of it (it just looks nice!) but who's going to say no to £2 a piece necklaces?!

I've been on the lookout for some kind of hair fascinator/headband thing for a while now, and this one was just so pretty :) I love that its an autumn/winter piece based on a crinkled autumn leaf :D Also, like the necklaces, it only cost £2 from Republic :)

So there you go, the ramblings of my procrastination... (i'm clearly not going to get into Uni if I do this much more...) Oh well, living up to the blog name I guess!
