Windy town

Back to London and back to work now. Ireland was lovely and peaceful but I am enjoying the hustle and bussel of London life again. Last night I went to see Black Swan with G and K, it was extremely intense but amazing, I definitely recommend you all to go and see it. The costumes and make up were beautiful and Natalie Portman's acting was divine, no wonder she won that Golden Globe. After the film I bumped into 2 old school friends whom I hadn't seen for YEARS, was completely random (like the film) but nice to have a catch up.

These are some pictures from my final day in Ireland, posing on the lawn. I hate doing 'photo shoots' they make me feel like a right idiot because I don't know what to do, where to look or how to act. I have no idea how all the 'big' bloggers manage to look so effortless in their photos. Seriously, how do you act in front of a camera? My normal hand on the hip and cheesy grin is getting a little old I imagine but that's really the only way I can poise so you just gotta put up with it!!

Short from Topshop
Tee and cardigan from H&M
OTK boots from Office

Mum bought me these shorts the other week and I just adore the scallop trim on them. I think they add a really interesting detail and still remain chic. Topshop also have some cute scallop trim vests in lots of different colour. I think I might buy one on pay day but not sure which colour, black, white or something bright? I think the shorts are a size too big because they are quite baggy, but when they arrived I really couldn't be bothered to change them for a smaller size so I'll just have to stick with them.

Ireland was really cold and windy hence my crazy hair. It wasn't a good idea to wear suede boots on the wet lawn either because I ended up with cold, wet feet!!

Seen some lush shoes in H&M on my lunch break x

  3. LOVE the boots. Really, really love them.

    I've never been to Ireland but I'm part Irish. I have Irish colouring too apparently — pale skin, freckles, reddish hair. Should pop over some time.

    I think you look adorable in your photos! I have no idea how to pose either; I just tend to pull face and wave my arms around.

  5. You look lovely here, I adore those shorts and Ireland looks beautiful.

    I kind of want to see Black Swan, but at the same time I tihnk it would just be too intense and harrowing for me.

  7. I hate having my photo taken by other people! I always end up grimacing. If I do it myself then at least I can take about 20 and then find one acceptable one! You look natural in these anyway and I love the scalloped shorts! x

    I'm glad you had a good time in my little Ireland, next time you're there I should hopefully be there too and then we can do a meet up and take craazy pictures and not feel awkward because we both will be acting like right idiots, being all modelly and sucking our cheeks in for the Vogue effect! :)

  20. I am aggrieved that the scallop shorts didn't come in big sizes. *wails* But they look nice on you! I think a orangey type of colour would be nice. I don't have a name for that colour - rust I think?
