Tulip Shaped Dress - Topshop (£20.00)
Cardigan - Primark (p/s)
Wellies - Hunter (£69.00) 

Well, well, well i thought i'd reign in this last post of 2011 with two of my great loves, one new and one old. The newest being the theft of my dad's fancy SL R camera (something Cannon) and my brand new set up for 2012 once i've mastered the art of the self-timer button. And secondly, my old love - a bargain Topshop dress i bagged in the sale last week. 

The past year has been a pretty damn good one to say the least, i hit my two year blogging anniversary, worked my arse off doing my dissertation, graduated with a first class honours degree in Magazine Publishing, sunned my self silly relaxing and soaking up the culture of Cuba, met many faces of the blogging community (much to my grans horror), treated myself to Mulberry Alexa, braced the world of contact lenses, hit my eight year anniversary with Matthew (shudder), grew an amazing pair of eyebrows courtesy of Charlotte and M2Beaut, all my glasses of fine champers were always on the house (an achievement right there), discovered the genus Stieg Larson and Jo Nesbo, listened to Etta James on repeat and my hair finally grew past that sodding length. And on the downside i gained a gammy leg and still remain a job-hunting graduate, whose perfectly happy looking for the perfect career. 

Some of the blogging beauts i met this year..

And finally, what would a new years post be without one little resolution - to stop fooling oneself and everyone that your saving for that dream Chanel bag when we both know that £4.20 you saved all year wouldn't even buy you a tube ticket to stroke one, let alone buy one. So heres my very own money box, a horrendously wrapped tissue box that will be filled, and not emptied in emergencies that include needing that Topshop dress or taxi fare. Heres hoping in 2013 i will buy one, not 2012 of course, we are in a recession don't you know? ;) 

(And yes it near killed me to cut up my Chanel shopping bag to stick that on the front).

See you next year my sweets. x

(yes i plan to show allllllllll my sale purchases, and christmas presents when they arrive..boys)
