i went home to cambridge at the weekend as my baby brother had his secondary school prom and i was the awkward lone shot photographer (he looked über cute and horribly grown up). wearing the topshop skinnies recently purchased.
firstly, this week the Q. project blog got over 100 followers on blogger - very happy times! thank you lovely readers. secondly, the Q. project blog got its first hater! - bless them, as much as they hate the blog they still come back and check it. haters gonna hate. thirdly, these are my newbies. so for many a year, i never wore jeans (too chubs) and i then i set myself a target to get myself to a point where i would comfortably wear some. my target was the marathon and the skinny jeans i wanted were j brand, when i trained i envisaged them. i have a weird body type, i have a small waist and a huge heiny and thighs so my jeans tend to gape at the back and are too tight at the thighs. anyway, mama went to the states last week and said i should finally go and try some on so she could bring me some back (cheaper) and i nervously did so. and it was horrible. i went to harvey nicks, had some pretty shoddy customer service, tried my dream pair on and they were too sodding short. i tried on some others, they too were too short. i could have cried. the next day i went and tried levi's curve id bold curve's and they just were not perfect. again, could have cried. so i went to topshop, tried on their leigh's and they were perfect. they are a bargain, sit slightly higher on the hip, there are super amounts of stretch (for the thighs and bottom) and they are long enough (i got the 34") - amazeballs. to be honest they don't feel like a jean, more like a nice stretchy black cotton trouser but until i find my perfect pair of proper jeans, these will do. also got myself some high-tops, i had the low-tops but my mum washed them and turned them yellow (they were white) so thought i'd try a bit of ankle covering.
alexa looks amazing. i want to fall straight into that bear cuddle/boy cuddle. i'm driving back to cambridge today to see my beautiful boy and also keeping fingers and toes crossed for tash. good luck lovely.
just got in from the shoot (and some sneaky tash loving) in camden and had to document my beastly amazeballs eyebrows (courtesy of ru mel). i am in love with the monsters and am sad that they will be removed in t minus 5 minutes. will post pictures up from behind the scenes when i am allowed to, i think you will all enjoy the shoot though, was lots of fun. and now to bed.
i love these pictures they scream summer goodness and then i look out the window and am faced by rain and grey boo. all little cuties waltzing around italia in sorbet colours and fruit apparel. total perfection, take note boys.
i'm enjoying these prettyful photos of the uk and london that a little astronaut took whilst flying over my part of the world. reminds me slightly of lava and fireworks. beautiful. good night lovely people!
