Popcorn, please?

Skirt - Republic, Top - Matalan, Cardigan - Matalan, Leggings - New Look, Boots - Tesco, Scarf - H&M

This is what I wore after I got home from a hard day of looking after 20 8-12 year olds in a busy leisure centre. I needed to wear something other than jogging bottoms or a massively oversized polo shirt. Although I feel comfy at work, I don't exactly feel myself. I even had to buy a pair of trainers to work there...

My Art Deco fork bracelet from Covent Garden Market.

I am going to the cinema tonight to see 'Youth in Revolt'. I love Michael Cera, it's ever since 'Superbad' and 'Juno'. I just love the character he plays in those films.

Empire gave 'Youth in Revolt' 4 stars which is means this film is going to be pretty damn good. I am a bit of a religious Empire reader and I do rely on Empire to dictate which films I see (I am reluctant to see a film with less than 3 stars nowadays). I am also a bit of a cinema geek, I try and make it once a week to see a film (Thank you Orange for your Orange Wednesdays - you do make my week).

The next film on my agenda is the 'Princess and the Frog'. I am a not-so-secret Disney fan. Any non-Disney fan would tut and shake their head in disapproval at the state of my DVD collection. I can't help myself though. There is something about Disney that I can't help but love.

Anyway, I am about to head to the cinema. Maybe I will write my own film review... Watch this space!

Over and out... xx

Bye Graham!

This is a very sad post. One of my favourite people in my life is moving to Australia to four years to do a PhD. As we live in not-so-sunny England, it's going to be so hard to see him from this side of the planet. Luckily, we are going to Australia as part of our travelling so it's not actually too long until we see him but it was still very sad. It feels a bit like the end of an era.

This is Graham. He is holding a piece of art my friend Claire made for him. It is beautiful. For more info on it go to her blog:

Oh Graham, I will miss you and the hilarity you bring to every situation.

Since it was a special occasion, I told this as an opportunity to take another outfit photo...

Dress - Topshop / Cardigan - Primark / Tights - Topshop / Heels - New Look / Earrings - Topshop / Necklace - Primark / Watch - ASOS

I figured that I don't write enough about music on my blog. Especially considering I teach it all day, then rehearse in the evenings, go to piano lessons and the like... So I thought I would mix two of my favourite past times - fashion and music.

So this is my fabulous piano. I bought it last summer. It has been well played by me already. You wouldn't think it was made in 1979, would you? I think it's beautiful and although it cost me a lot of pennies, it will be with me for my whole life.

I am currently learning "The Heart Asks Passion First" which is the main theme from the film "The Piano". It is a beautiful piece by Michael Nyman.

This is what I wore yesterday evening:

Skirt - River Island, Top, tights and belt - Primark, Ankle boots - New Look

I wore this just to the local pub but I was dressed rather boring at school so felt the need to dress prettily. Plus, I had just got back from a trampolining session and needed to feel a bit less ick.
I am getting so inspired reading other people's blogs. I find them fascinating. I can't help but nose at other people's style.

I think I should probably write about what my friends wear more as they inspire me the most. I like that we all have our own styles yet they can still influence what I wear. There are aspects of their styles which look amazing on them but wouldn't suit me at all. I think that's the main reason I love fashion - every gets to be as unique as they want to be.

Until next time.

Over and out x
