Glads & Tags

Firstly, I bought this ice cream today - if you haven't had one before you have to push it up and then when you've finished there are Smarties in the little stick bit. I was trying to get the stick out to enable me to consume the rainbow goodness, got a little too enthusiastic and dropped them all on the floor. They were gobbled up by pigeons almost instantly.


Secondly, the boyfriend got me these Gladiator sandals for part of my birthday present (only a month and a day late) from River Island. I'm not usually a massive fan of theirs because they stamp their name on EVERYTHING, but these lovelies have avoided the branding which means that they can come home with me.


My feet aren't really a strange colour like this.

And finally, I was tagged by Ruta from Look Ugly in Photograph last week and have only just got round to doing it:

what is your current obsession? Fruit Punch Vitamin Water.
what are you wearing now? Katherine E Hamnett T Shirt, Pale blue button down skirt, Charity shop blazer, Harry the Parrot and my new gladiator sandals.
do you nap a lot? Not so much but I'd love to have one now instead of doing revision!
what is on your desk? Loads of revision notes, text books, a couple of boxes of accessories and a vase with a bunch of flowers in.
what would you like to learn to do? Learn how to fly a helicopter.
what’s for dinner? Tuna salad.
what was the last thing you bought? Employment Law textbook.
what is your favorite weather? Sunshine and snow!
do you believe in love at first sight? No, but it would save a lot of time!

what would you like to have in your hands right now? The winning lottery ticket or a blueberry muffin - either one.
what would you like to get rid of? Employment and Medical Law exams!

+ what is one of your biggest pet peeves?
I hate it when people leave rubbish in my car!!

I don't really know who to tag so if you fancy doing it.. consider yourself tagged!


  1. love those sandals.. river island usually looks like the designers sneezed crystals all over the clothes x

  2. Love your blue toes and glads and your tag answers, too! So cool to learn how to fly a helicopter! And bravo on the languages!


  3. I LOVE this post! Delicious!


  4. I forgot to tell you, thanks for the anecdote about the "Poo Police." I needed a laugh...and uh, fecal humor will always get that out of me. What can I say, I'm five.

  5. Cute sandals and nail polish!

    I would love to speak German too. I tried a few years ago but only got the very basics. xo

  6. love the sandals and are you officially in law school? or are you still doing your undergraduate degree?? i wanted to get into fashion but the spots available are very small. around 12 people to 1 spot so i've decided to go and study law. undergrad for 4 years and then hopefully i can get into a good law school. :)

    i hate when people leave rubbish in the car as well. yuck!

  7. I'm digging the shoes and the blue nail polish;)

  8. those sandals are killer!
    love 'em(:

    love your blog!

  9. Cool sandals, I know how you feel about River Island, they seem obsessed with putting their logo on everything or adding tackiness to things.

  10. I LOVE your shoes!!! They are truly amazing! By far some of the best gladiators I've seen. Your bf has good taste!
    I love your answers! Wow, you speak a lot of languages, I'm jealous! When did you begin learning another language? Because I hear if you learn a second language before you're 12 it's much easier in the future.

    The snakeskin trousers were actually men's trousers but Ioved them so much I bought them and am now attempting to make them into a pair of skinnies :)

  11. I am SO jealous of those shoes!!!

  12. awesome shoes

  13. k, well I guess your bf's taste probably isn't that great in shoes but yours certainly is!!!
    Sounds like the rumours are true, learning a laguage before 12 is a great idea! I didn't learn a second language until I was probably 14. Well actually I take that back, I took a tiny bit of spanish when I was like 10, Latin when I was 14 or so, and I'm attempting to teach myslef Greenlandic/Inuit because I'm obsessed with Greenland for some strange reason I don't even know myself. I would also love to learn Russian because it sounds really beautiful when spoken or sung -like when I first heard it, French because it would be handy for a career in fashion, and Italian because in my dreams I want to spend my vacations there. :)
    ps- I think we have a talent for leaving really long comments to each other!!

  14. Yay, i want to be fluent in German too!!=)
    Looking forward on your next post girl.Have a nice day ahead.=)

    A Writers Den

  17. Aww, poor you! I'd be upset if I dropped the smarties. But hey, at least you've got a pair of gorgeous gladiators!! :)

  18. Lovr the colour of your nails...what nail polish is it? The gladiators look awesome and nooo to those pigeons who gobbled up all those precious smarties!
