Eyed Up Nails

I saw this design on Instagram recently (pretty sure it was from WAH nails) and had to try it out for myself. The eye shape was done with a small brush and pupil and iris were made with different sized dotting tools. They are a little creepy, but hey I've had creepier looking nails before.

All work and no play never made me lose it

Skirt - MaxMara (vintage), Jumper - Primark, Shoes - Office, Necklace - Accessorize, Sunglasses - Forever21

It feels good to get back to blogging after a week of being ill and having mountains of uni work (still do - don't let anyone tell you business degrees are easy. Okay, it's not rocket science, and I admit I'm a pretty good procrastinator, but still!). I'm thankful my friends keep helping out with taking photos so I can have different backgrounds instead of just a cream wall or wardrobe.

If you follow me on instagram you might have already seen this outfit. I was nosing around my mum's wardrobe and found this skirt she doesn't wear anymore, so I tried it on and luckily it fit me. I really like the midi skirt silhouette despite being a short person. I feel like no-one really cares about height and fashion rules anymore though. I decided to keep the top simple with a black jumper and paired it with my car necklace and retro looking sunglasses because the sun is finally starting to shine on London. Now all I need is some heels and a beehive hairdo, which is probably what I would've done had I not had uni. Or if I knew how to do a beehive properly.

Shirt - New Look, Jumper - H&M, Skirt - H! By Henry Holland, Shoes - Office

Attempting to make friends with a pigeon
Necklace - Gogo Phillips

I've been seeing a lot of 'all black everything' posts and outfits lately and while I'm usually one for living in black clothing, I thought I'd give my paler clothes the spotlight for this post. Props to my oatmeal jumper for toning down the dentist-approved-toothpaste-advert-white skirt. I wore the off-white collared shirt underneath to add another shade. Also layers are necessary in London right now. The 'I love coffee' necklace is a late Christmas present from a friend that I've barely taken off. I do love coffee.

Title stuff: I just listened to the new 2NE1 album today and Happy instantly became my favourite track. Anyone who's listened to the album, what are your thoughts?
