(a wear via asos)

british weather is officially on crack. thursday was so humid i had to peel my jeans off, friday it semi-rained and now i am in wales with the most mismatched packed bag as i have no idea what my body wants to wear. well actually i do know it would like to wear this jumper, it is kind of christmasy but i think i could perhaps get away with it now.

this week i have been proudly sporting these beasts. the little bro lent me his headphones when i was home needing something to cover my ears for a jog (my ears + wind = tragedy), and i did not realise 1. how well they keep the wind out of ears (no ear ache for me, no no no) and 2. how much better music sounds with giant headphones. anyway, i then was on a mission to get me some beats by dr.dre. i chose the solo hd ones in red because i am a misery and never wear any colour and now i wear red headphones. every day. they are amazing, honestly, my music sounds so much better, the bass is banging. other pro's include - they are comfy, they do not fall off my head when i attempt to do interval training at the gym and you can't hear anything outside of them. totes recommend to anyone.

new child

i am quite the happy bean this week, so not only have i finished school forever but i have acquired a new bag baby. her name is jane, she is beautiful. sally and i poodled along to the selfridges sale after she finished work and we both saw the alexander wang bag sale stand. there really is nothing quite as exciting as that, well actually if celine or chanel had a proper sale stand i think i'd pass out, i'm even getting overwhelmed by the thought. anyway, we found ourselves walking around selfridges with a wang bag on both shoulders (we were coincidently wearing our first born wangs) and then, i don't really know how it happened, but i bought mine. rocco now has little sister jane. sally was a great role model for you all, she decided to save her money (she was carrying the jane shoulder bag, she bid a tough farewell). i however am a shameful human being, but i can actually justify this shiz - i needed a summer bag. and voila, i have one. and she's perfect. it looks like a backpack, but it isn't one. it is covered in wonderful gold zips. it has enough pockets i even have one to put my heinz ketchup sachets in (you can't risk a lack of good ketchup these days). it is a the most delightful toffee colour. and the leather is so soft that the man-friend will be sleeping in the spare bunk so i can cuddle/stroke her. aaah.

(backstage at lanvin autumn/winter 2011/12 via

continuing with my friend related posts, and well actually, continuing with my increase in a social life, i am seeing my favourite natasha this evening (my second favourite being of the poly kind, as above). favourite natasha no.1 has just got from barbados and i'm not sure i will be able to look at her (i'm see-through, she is the colour i wish to be) but i am most excited to poodle along to her new digs.

i came across these marvellous daschunds and they instantly reminded me of sally and myself, which coincidently is wonderful as i am having dinner to celebrate the end of uni with her this evening (most exciting as i have not seen her in forever/weeks). yes indeed peeps, i have finished my last bit of work for uni ever ever and am free! free to be social with all my neglected friends who now will not be able to get rid of me. hallo friends.

um so the non-perks of doing trend reports for uni is that you come across a lot of shiz you never knew you wanted. prime example being these beautiful anouk heels from jimmy choo. i saw them on angelica's blog and i'm kind of hooked... trying to decide if i like these more than the louboutins... important decisions.

i had an anklet similar to this years ago, i found it earlier this week looking all rusty and gross and actually squealed slightly with excitement when i saw that asos had this one for just £5. it's the small things hey.

there is something about the feel of these photos that i love, and the heavy black top eyeliner is always a winner with me.

most enjoying these shiny bras. sorry for the lack of posting, the countdown to my final ever hand in at uni has begun and the poor little blog has been feeling rather lonely (as has my social life), so please bare with me for the time being and once it is all over the Q. blog will be back on top form.

(fiona cairns jubilee cake for harrods)

my absolute favourite cake maker fiona cairns made this wonderful cake crown for harrods' display for the jubilee. the entire thing and the cushion it sits on is edible and encompasses the emblems of the four nations - the english rose, the scottish thistle, the welsh daffodil and the irish shamrock. i want an edible crown.
