Oh man,
it is COLD today. I really resented having to leave my toasty warm house where only a dress is required, to venture out and about bundled up in cardis, coat, gloves and scarf.

How’s your Monday going? Do you live somewhere warm? (if you do, please kidnap me, thanks)



What are your plans for this week? I don’t think I have any? Weather permitting, hopefully I’ll make it in to Bristol for some Christmas shopping, but otherwise, not a lot. I must get my ass in gear and enrol on the media law course I want/need to do.

Anyone bought anything from the Giles Deacon for New Look range yet? I’m tempted by a couple of things, but want to check them out in store first.

  31. Love love your dress (especially paired with those bright tights). Wish I were in the beautifully cold England! ^__^

  32. Fierce dress!!! The shoulders are amazing!
    Well, I do live somewhere warmer than the UK, but it’s not like the tropicals either. I am planning a trip to my boyfriend’s town though this week… Maybe I should shoot some pics by the sea!

  33. awesome outfit girl =)

  36. Now that cold weather is the only thing that I do not like about being in London!
