last week topshop hosted an event called "wish you were at topshop" which, as it coincided with the end of my exams (no longer can anyone tell me to "down it fresherrrrr"- hooray!) i headed down to liverpool one to see what was happening. one of the girls persuaded me to actually get involved, so i put on the blazer and got my photo taken (since when did ipads have cameras?), bought myself a ring and a cream tea from patisserie valerie as a treat for surviving year one, then returned to topshop for the dazed digital talk, which was stupidly interesting. (then i bought a bottle of rosé and discovered there's a lambanana in heebie jeebie's, but that's another story entirely).

hopefully as i'm back home for summer i'll be able to post more regularly, thank you so much to all my followers, and those who comment (arghhh, stop being so gushy, rebecca). are any of you going to the midlands meet-up in birmingham? i'm thinking of popping along!

  16. Thats such a cute outfit, sounds like you had a lovely day, especially the treating yourself to a cream tea part : )
    I've only just heard about the middlands meet up, it's something I'd love to go to but I get so so nervous with people I don't know and would probably just be one big blushing freak : /

  19. I wish we had proper Topshop stores here. We just have this... (I don't even know what you'd call it, a boutique isn't quite correct) place... thing, that stocks some Topshop and Topman, but everything is in limited numbers and it's on the far far side of town :(

  50. Can't believe I missed your little ebay sale - there must have been some lovely things :( and almost missed the meet-up shenanigans - this is how much I've been living in a cave for exams! Anyhow, it's so good to catch up on your blog, even if you say you haven't posted frequently it's so much fun to not check your favourite blog repetitively only to return to an indulgently long list of posts! I'm so gutted I leave on the 21st to go on holiday so I will miss the meet-up, it seems like we are so similar in our interests/tastes we could talk for hours on end! If you randomly feel like meeting one stranger as opposed to 20 - don't see why you would - we should do something... *imagine's rebecca's horrified face*... ok maybe not! :D
