The Royal Wedding

What a fabulously proud moment in our British history. As I watched Catherine Middleton step out of her car and walk demurely down the isle of Westminster Abbey, I nearly shed a tear. Looking positively stunning in a fairytale Alexander McQueen dress designed by Sarah Burton, I and I'm sure many many others, thought what do I have to do to become a Princess?
Whilst Catherine seemed to get it very right in her choice of dress, others seemed to lack the same sense of style. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie looked far to try hard with what can only be described as ridiculous hats and shoes so vertiginous they could barely walk.
On the other hand, the Middleton family looked absolutely spectacular. Not only did Carole Middleton look elegant and sophisticated, what a wonderful tribute to Princess Diana as she proudly looked on at her daughter as she wore Catherine Walker.

Fun in the Sun

It's amusing what the British find fun, isn't it? I'm currently in Wales enjoying some beautiful sunshine over a lovely Easter weekend. On a trip to the beach my family, friends and I considered buying swimsuits to go swimming in the sea. On reflection I'm so terribly glad that we didn't. Instead, we dipped in our toes which then went numb from the cold considerbly quickly.. Like I said, amusing what we find fun...
I decided it would be appropriate to wear this fun summer dress with boats on to a trip to the seaside. It made me so happy I very nearly forgot the pain in my very blue toes, but at least they matched the dress!

Obsession Du Jour

I am currently having a moment with Childrenswear. I've recently acquired a new brother, and he is as sweet as they come. This in mind, it is only natural that from time to time I may want to indulge him with lovely gifts.
Evidently, my focus is fashion and styling in particular, but this is a whole new realm I've never even considered before. Why is it that everything looks so much cuter when it's small?
Anyway, I've been indulging his tastes, and mine, with the most gorgeous clothes there are. I recently bough him a very snazzy pair of red trousers and a beautiful pyjama set.

When the time comes for me, this is the style and inspiration I shall be looking for..

Glad to be back

Well, I think it's safe to say that my preempted thoughts about having a life as well as balancing a job and uni failed spectacularly! I think this is clear from my very severe lack of blogging. But, with my last deadline looming I think it's safe to say I'm back in the game; and very excited I am about it too.
Last night I enjoyed having a social life whilst out with friends, although it was a strange feeling seeing as it's been such a long time since that happened. Today I am making cupcakes.
Its going to be an exciting time from now on.
