Fashion Takes a Day Off

Like the catwalk season, my mini-exam season has now come to an end until the summer! To celebrate I gate crashed a friend's house to gorge on strawberry cheesecake Hagen Daas ice cream, play Wii sports and make my Resident Evil 4 debut; my RE verdict : gore grows on you.

Up at 5.30 this morning to cram in the last few bits of revision before my 8.30 Politics exam, today was one of those days where I officially took a break from even attempting to look human, lettings fashion take a day off. Throwing on a black, bracelet sleeved, sailor necked top from Zara, a red and white tartan wool mini skirt from Mango, pair of black tights and my fail safe just-below-the-knee brown leather boots from Office, as an after thought to improve my 'Croydon face lift' ponytail and glasses combo. So, looking like a girl that needed a facial and a good night sleep, you can imagined how happy I was when my photography student friend whipped out her SLR and suggested a set of impromptu snaps. Despite frowning and avoiding the flash by fixing my attention on the Rubik cube I'd been playing around with, I really like how this photo came out : this girl's got talent.

Now, I think it's about time I got a good nights sleep, not before, of course, burning all my revision notes, I'm no pyromaniac, it's just SO CATHARTIC.

why burn them when you..can sell them next year to the poor things revising? :) i too think it's a very cool pic.

re: fixing that hole, u r right, i cannot undo the whole thing now. will try to stitch it with the remaining yarn in the end, or maybe leave it like this as a proof of it being hand-made!!! x
