two words...

....Christopher Kane

thats all and i am, in the words of my boyfriend, stupidly happy


yeah I will update...sometime soon...promise


if you don't tell my boyfriend then neither will i

i'm beginning to think i have a problem...but then it's a good problem surely? its not like i spend all day eating crisps and downing bottles of wine, shoes never hurt anyone...sprained ankles aside. Went shopping yesterday, spent far too long in h&m then nipped into new look - i do love their footwear department at the moment so many lovely pairs of shoes and boots. anyway these - £30 and leather? couldn't really say no.

on a side note, how come the years when i need a new coat, the shops are full of hideous things, but the years i really, really, don't need another coat, i like nearly everything i see? unfair

please go buy the coats so they stop tempting me!


i treated myself

after almost two weeks of feeling awful (who knew antibiotics could make you feel worse than an infection?), I needed a treat:

They turned up yesterday morning and I love them, haven't taken them off yet. Bought them with money made on ebay - paypal money isn't really money right??

boots: ASOS


pretty nails

quick trip to the shops, took advantage of the models own offer at boots to add to the collection

From L to R: Purple Grey, Pink Blush, Nude Beige (new), Raspberry Fool (new)
Front: Fuchsia-full lipgloss (free!)
(missing: Lilac Dream nail polish - gone walkabout in the flat)

Models Own has quickly become my favourite polish; usually polish starts chipping the day after I put it on, but I've managed almost a week without losing any Models Own polish



over the past two months I've been getting increasingly busy having decided to move out of my student house at the end of contract into a flat with my boyfriend, whilst working on my MA dissertation and job hunting.
after two weeks of working until 5am trying to write the 20,000 words they wanted amidst piles of boxes, I finally handed it in last week so have spent the last week and have so spent the last week sleeping and occasionally unpacking.
finally today we get the internet at the new flat (i'm not happy sky not happy at all) and I feel slightly more like a human being again.

so my life now:
am working through the 400 odd posts stacked up google reader
am going to Bath on thursday
am going to Ikea on wednesday for a sofa..and maybe a chair...or a dining table
can finally blog/online shopagain...yay!!
am still waiting for british gas to call me back .. boo!! being an adult is not fun

EDIT - first of the forthcoming changes - the blog is on twitter (here: twitter.com/thisisyourlot)...umm not much there yet but soon


Almost did astrophysics. sometimes really wish i had.
