laters 2012



ah, 2012, so very glad you are coming to an end. the year of moving on, graduating, kim & kanye/kimye (with a mini kimye on the way...), quitting gilly, gangnam style, excessive eating (mainly cookies and discovering the mix of salted & sweet popcorn), dating the worst selection of men - ever (i'm sure i win on stories), hi tops, the olympics & generally being british (hear hear!). tonight i am celebrating the welcome end of this year with tash, we are aiming to be girly and make an effort with our appearance, drink copious amounts of alcohol in any form and probs shed a few tears (bless our emotional cotton socks). we've both got lots to look forward to, 2013 is set to be a corker... can't wait. happy new year Q. project readers!

sale picks


got to love ze british high street chritsmas sales. i'm quite chuffed with the actual decent discounts and actual decent stuff they've all put in. below are my favourite online finds...

/topshop - a surprisingly impressive sale. i've been in store also and there was a whole load of other stuff i've wanted for a while.
(knitted stud camouflage jumper - was £45, now £30) 


(chain insert cardi - was £55, now £25)

(acrobat wedge trainers - was £80, now £40)

/asos - not convinced this is their final lot of sale stock and reductions, i've got a lot of stuff in my save for later that has been in there for months and i'm more than sure these are things that will get reduced. anyway, these are my faves of their current sale stock.

 (prom dress with embellished bodice - was £120, now £84)

(fringed leather jacket - was £130, now £78) 

(mongolian earmuffs - was £22, now £15) 

(playsuit with knit print - was £38, now £26.50) 

/miss selfridge - again, clothes i would consider buying, especially with the hefty reductions. 
(printed organza dress - was £55, now £25) 

(tutu dress - was £79, now £40) 

(purple metallic dip back top - was £24, now £12) 

(slash back burnout tee - was £18, now £12)

zoological


guys, it's official, i'm feeling christmassy. finished work yesterday, shopped with mama bear, wore my furry hat (which who knew, boys seemed to like - instead of coming up and insulting me, i actually got told i was cute! yes, cute - i was shocked too. and by more than one of the man species! holla!), bought some presents and drank champagne on a roof with the coolest santa. going to finish my shopping tomorrow and monday (i like to be prepared) and if i had remembered, i would have bought these christmas cards for my teeny list of christmas card receive-ees. starting up the ives gingerbread factory tomorrow with jessie and going to listen to my banging christmas playlist. hope you all have a lovely pre-christmas weekend <3

bleurgh. having one of those crappy wednesdays. came across this picture of my unnecessary crush and thought that if you also are having a tad shite day, this could most definitely cheer you up. i have too much time for this boys face/hair/eyebrows/clothes. sigh.

new in / i





if you follow my instagram or twitter, you would have been aware that i got some very special burberry packages delivered to work recently (being surrounded by tech men meant it was a solo joyous dance)... and these are the goodies that were lurking in those beautiful boxes. they're an early christmas present (from myself to myself, and a little bit from my mama) and i couldn't be happier with what father christmas brought. i've been lusting after this perfect leather shearling biker since the summer, and now i earn money and shiz, i saved up and bought it. i'm horribly in love with it - the stitching of the upper arm of the sleeves, the removable shearling collar, its delightful leather smell, the grain of the leather and most importantly that the sleeve length is long enough for my monkey arms. sigh.
