So my degree certificate arrived today, I officially have a Foundation Degree with Distinction. It’s nice to have the proper thing in my hands. I’ve mentioned before that in September I will be starting my top up year to get my BA Honours Degree, I’ve spent the past couple of weeks doing a lot of pattern cutting and I love it so much that I have been thinking about doing a post graduate diploma after the top-up. It’s something to consider, I’ve got other things in the pipe line but it’s something I think I would enjoy.
We’ve been having gorgeous weather this past week, it’s been so nice to actually wear some summery clothes:
I love these lacy ankle socks, I think they finish this outfit of just nicely too 🙂

I had a pedicure booked for today as a treat and for some reason was sure it was at 5pm. I planned my whole day around it, meeting and visiting various friends and family in various different locations. Just as I was setting off to meet my friend Rosie for a coffee this morning I had a phone call asking if I was ok because I’d missed my appointment at 10am, checked my diary and sure enough I’d even written 10am in there but was so sure it was at 5pm I hadn’t looked. Felt a bit of a twit really, I hate it when people miss appointments. So that was pants, but I’ve had a lovely day other than that, just got back from tea with another friend which was lush and spent a few hours out in my garden this afternoon too.
I bought these trousers yesterday in Topshop Oxford Circus (making the most of the 20% student discount offer at the mo!). Love, love, love them! Me and my sister Hannah spent hours in Topshop. We had an absolutely brilliant day fabric and trimming shopping and of course clothes shopping! Will tell you more about it and my purchase tomorrow as I’m rather pooped. You can just see Bracken lurking behind me in this photo, we gave up on getting one without him in it as he didn’t want to leave my side!

I can’t decide whether this outfit makes me feel more like a Russian princess or Cruella Deville!! It’s the faux fur scarf that does it either way. I got Dave to take a few shots as there are a lot of details I wanted to show of this outfit. My mum gave me the scarf on Saturday, she saw it in a charity shop and thought I would like to make it into something; I might do but I really like it as the scarf that it is. I’d also seen a pair of stripey Falke tights that I wanted, but they were far more than I could afford; imagine my delight when I saw a very similar pair in Tesco for £5!!!

I didn’t manage to post last night so this is what I wore yesterday……
The dress is about 5 years old from Warehouse and I still adore it, you can’t really tell from the photo but it has a lovely peter pan collar.
Two pairs of tights for extra warmth!!!
