Lara I am so sorry for standing on your face.. I really like this battered old clutch, I found it in the attic- full of old money from all around the world. The title seemed most fitting.

Between two points




Top - Topshop, Boots & Bag - Vintage

The reason I have had less than the usual amount of posts as of late is that I'm in-between wardrobes, summer to autumn transition and general lack of funds. Waiting for my birthday on the 20th for shopping trips and spending money..

Sacré sucré!


Lace top & Broaches - Revolver Vintage, Polkadot skirt - H&M, Cameo Hair clip - Topshop
Sacre Sucre (Roughly translating to holy sugar! haha) also happens to be a little ice cream chain in France, which makes me even more excited for my holidays. Last year I went with my lifelong best friend Emily and had the time of my life can't wait for this year! I thought it was a fitting title for such a sickly sweet array..
Some other sweet things happened today- I found out I've been shortlisted for a national photography competition, very much doubt I'll win but hey I can stick that on my CV can't I?
Today was also my last day of filming for a short film that will be exhibited in a few weeks and with any luck submitted to Channel 4 for one of their '3 minute wonders'
ANDDD.. I am pleased to be the creator of a new header for the lovely Elena of Fashion Is Inspiration
OH, ONE MORE THING!
It's coming up to the 2 year anniversary of ESB, I'm thinking giveaway..
Cherry on top of the cake indeed.

Have you read any of the millennium trilogy? If not you must! I hate it when people think because a book is popular they are above the common so to speak. A good book is still a good book and these are bloody good books!
