Not doing my lab report... Cheapest outfit ever

WHERE'S     IT     FROM?

Onesy: American Apparel (£4 from AA thrift)
Shorts: Vintage Levi 501 (A FIVER!!)
Belt: Primark (borrowed)
Tights: Stolen from my sister

Topshop - Gypsy Night 

Today was meant to be spent doing lots of hard work on my lab report (in for Thursday I might add) that I haven't started. Instead, I felt it necessary to spend ages doing my nails  and generally faffing about. I LOVE this nail polish, it reminds me of space/gothic disco haha! Needs a couple of coats to get the best effect but for £6 it's a bargain! A couple of months ago I went to the American Apparel thrift sale near Brick Lane, managed to pick up quite a few things and it all came to about £30 quid, I'll be showing more very soon :) Really hating uni atm so blogging has cheered me up a little bit, along with Haribos and fish fingers :) mmmm. Also can't stop wondering what I should do for my 21st birthday, not that I'm going to remember it......I know nobody reads this but any ideas? in London or Bristol methinks. ANYWAY back to Come Dine With Me.
I hope I'm not the only person who decides to dress up for not even leaving the house haha!

Look at me feckin nails !

WHAT      IS      THIS?
Nails: Nailene oval tips
Pink: Topshop - feisty
Black: Barry M - 47 Paint Black

Badass nails. 

I bought Nailene stick ons from eBay, even though living near Peckham means I have access to MANY cheap nail salons. Just goes to show how cheap I really am haha!  So I was very inspired by Rihanna's claw-like cat nails thought i'd try my own. Nice result I think, stayed on all night at Proud and I party HARD. 10/10 for Nailene. 

Slebbity Shopping.

WHERE'S     IT     FROM?
(Clothes on me)
Leather jacket: eBay
Sheer shirt: H&M
Jeans: Cheap Monday
Boots: Dr Martens 10 hole
Belt: Primark
Spotted bucket bag: Topshop
Dress - Long sleeved top - Bag: Topshop

Haven't posted for ages partially due to being hungover most of the time. SO SO SO excited about Christmas, got a really cute/tasty advent calender from Madelaine Chocolate courtesy of daddy dearest but that's the only luxury I've had this month, painfully skint ughh.
 Aaanyyyway, yesterday me and Emma went to the new Westfield Stratford for the millionth time and got treated to a personal shopping experience (quite by accident) in Topshop. Sharna picked out a few pieces for us then proceeded run around the shop finding us the sizes we needed and generally was just a complete babe :) . I LOVED this look with the Floral midi dress over the long sleeved top, v. nineties. I found this gorgeous top in cream for Emma in Topshop  who tried on MANY outfits whilst I  ate far to many Haribo's impulse bought in the Primark queue *only just learnt how to spell this word HOW WEIRD IS IT SPELT???? That'll have to change when I take over the world* . 

I'm writing this hung over and more than a little ashamed of myself after last nights antics at Netball initiation (no I don't actually play netball far too lazy for that, I'm a social member. It involved shots of vinegar, pickled onions, whipped cream, tabasco and gin shots and in the end I was christened with Xtina as my nickname, due to my tendancy to be X-rated hmmmmm ;) Still gutted I can't join Pottermore yet. Ramble over.

Bank, beautiful, Spoons

So Back in October one of my best friends Hanna Hillier who is an amazing photographer  and generally crazy legend asked me to assist on a test shoot she did for Next models where she works. Of course I accepted. Ended up having a lush day preserving GiGi's modesty in public, being a one woman wind machine and approving Hanna's styling (not that she needed my approval). GiGi was such a babe, literally stunningly beautiful and we all had such a nice day followed by a burger in Spoons :) Here are some of the pictures courtesy of Hanna Hillier. Note to self : Don't ever stand next to a model YOU WILL LOOK CHUBBB!

So already failing on the blog post front. Sorry about the awful photo quality ( photos were taken on the wrong camera setting). This is what I wore the day before yesterday, pretty standard, well impressed with the wedges though , SO CHEAP and real suede . Went to Proud Thursday night, wore a velvet and lace bralet I bought from H&M and a skirt I made (cheeky bit of DIY) H&M earrings and a Miss Selfridge bag that I LOVE!!! Proud was amazing: POLES, FREE DRINKS, POPPIES, TABLE DANCING !  Now I'm in Swansea being very hungover again after Sink at Sin City last night. It was my friend Anne-Marie's birthday party, I dressed as Josephine Baker :) Going to see Rusko tonight FUNFUNFUN!

What I wore to not leave the house.

WHERE'S    IT    FROM ? :
Jacket: Ebay BARGAIN, £30 + it's real leather!!
Tank: Gina Tricot 4 Kr
Leggings: H&M £7.99
Shoes: Office sale £30

Sorry this is going to be short, got an hour before lecture time :/Seeing as I've spent the past three days in my pyjamas I deemed it necessary to get dressed even if I wasn't going outside. My eBay find was this amazing studded soft leather jacket I got for £30 quid (just goes to show no life outside eBay pays off). Managed to paint my nails and not get bored halfway through and take it all off (common occurrence). I'll post a picture of my nails later.Sorry about the slightly dodgy picture quality, I'll sort it one of these days 

6 Coffees and 3000 words later..

I'm really excited about starting a blog..but that might be all that coffee. It's 8.30am and I still haven't been to sleep thanks to a hideous essay on cartography , the whole 3000 words could have been summarised with 3 (maybe 4 not sure) 'BUY A SAT-NAV'. On the plus side, doing my essay gave me the opportunity to play the best Christmas album ever interlaced with Black Sabbath (can't wait for their 2012 tour!!) and Mastodon, sing really loud and probably piss of the people in the flat downstairs hehe.
Looking forward to hitting Westfield today for a bit of H&M for Versace, hopefully I'll be able to grab a piece or two... SEE!!! Already spending money I don't have. Ffs.
