Blouses and Hot Sauce // 04/01/12

| blouse: topshop | jeans: oasis |

I am absolutely in love with this blouse! I first spotted it months ago back when I was working there, I guess they've bought it back! So I snapped it up immediately before it scampered off again. Nice and baggy and comfortable, yet sheer to glam it up a bit! And THE NAILS!! I finally took the plunge and tried the magnetism polish, and man do I love it! Just shake the bottle, two thin coats on the nail, hold the magnet over the wet polish for about 8 seconds, then voila! And it dries very quickly, so no worries about ruining the effect.

On the life front, I returned to college today! Checked out some grades from last terms, distinction for my jazz exam, which I'm loving! And alas, only a merit for the group drama performance, 1 portion was a distinction but the rest were merits, bit disappointed but I know what to improve on for the next assignments and can still get three distinctions overall.
Also, as my Christmas contract nears the end at Oasis (I know, I seem to flit from job to job!) I'm on the job hunt again, my manager has said there's a possibility they'll keep me, they just need to check the budget for the next quarter to see if they can afford it, so I'm not taking any chances. I've actually already got an interview for the Quiz clothing concession in my local Debenhams, which would be GREAT, as I'm probably more likely to love the clothes there more than in Oasis.
How's everyone taken the transition from the Christmas hustle and bustle, back in to normal life?

Chelsea and Sophisticated Feathers // 02/01/12

 | jumper, jeans: oasis | earrings: primark |

I am in love with this jumper! I didn't really think much of it when it was hung up at work, but then I had to pop it on a mannequin, and I saw how it fell lovely and flattered the figure, and HAD to get it. Pretty steep at £55, I did get it for only £33, but that's a testament to how well it's been made, it's the comfiest thing ever. And those earrings were only..... ONE POUND... Mother got them for me for Christmas and I couldn't believe it when she told me, they're pretty neutral and lovely at the same time. Perfect for casual daywear or evening!

Long time no speak fellow bloggers! You know how it is over Christmas though, my Grandparents have been down for the last 10 days and they took over my room for most of it, so no computer/photo taking opportunities. I've had such a lovely Christmas though! And a hilarious new year party with my family and friends, I wish I'd got a photo of my outfit, it was a 70s gold jumpsuit! It was insanely authentic and epic. I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season!
