Dirty old river, must you keep rolling.

18 and East playsuit: c/o fuse fashion. Angora jumper: £6, M&S, via charity shop. Bag: £4, vintage. Shoes: £22, Russell and Bromley, via ebay. Watch: gift, Rotary. Bracelet: gift. Rings: gift and vintage.

I'm not sure quite what's happening, but I think I'm going to need sunglasses. If you read any British blogs, you may have heard that summer may be just round the corner, and we're all rather excited by the novelty of it. I may not be a fan of my legs (go to the gym, Rebecca) but it was necessary to strip off the tights, and leave the house with a spring in my step in the prettiest 18 and East playsuit from fuse fashion, perfectly made for this kind of weather. To celebrate and send me off northwards for the final time, my friend
Harriet and I visited A Cherry On Top, a café we'd both walked past countless times, but never really tried out. Despite it definitely being brunch time, we both opted for cake instead of eggs benedict, which is probably the best morning decision I've ever made. Although those meringues do look good too...

Life is simple in the moonlight.

Geometric print blazer: £15.30, Warehouse. Body: £2, Primark. Easy jeans: £35, American Apparel, via asos. Hat: gift, Marks and Spencer. Bag: French Connection. Necklace: Vintage. Ring: £3.50, Topshop. Shoes: 50p, Russell and Broley, via ebay.

It's a bit odd to revisit these photos! Taken when it was quite windy (understatement, I'm clinging onto my hat to stop it from flying off into the nether), to showcase my persistent love for anything navy and oxblood on my old camera, in jeans I've since had to retire (sigh), and a necklace I'm pretty sure I've lost, but they weren't taken entirely in vain. This is just a quick post to say that you may have noticed me excitedly share on twitter and facebook that I'm currently featured on H&M's online source for inspiration, which I guess you could call a blog. If you'd like to read the rest of it, and see me placed alongside Tinie Tempah probably for the only time in my life, you can read it here.


Regarding, you know, life, I'm back in Liverpool this evening, and probably heading straight to the library to finish up an essay that's due on Tuesday, which realistically means having a cuppa on the sofa and waking up early tomorrow. It may be the final term of my degree, but that doesn't mean I don't like leaving things till the deadline - I obviously won't ever learn!

Who doesn't love a good wall? This one is a pretty darn good example, and is located in South West London, just a stone's throw from Jazmine's, where Olivia and I went for a sleepover this weekend. Within minutes of arriving in Clapham, we found ourselves warmed by a good ol' cup of tea (in a Cath Kidston mug, no less!), and having a natter about what's happened since we all met up in Liverpool. Jazmine's room is a little haven away from the hustle and bustle of London life, and left me feeling very sorry for the white walls of my student room, as hers are adorned with images of Audrey and wonderful illustrations by the very talented Ella and Jaymie. Dancing around in my new Shelikes pinafore (sorry, I'm still not a complete convert to the pinny trend, I'm convinced that they just don't suit me) to Beyonce left me with no alternative title for this post. We're well on our way to learning the single ladies dance too...

Outside of the boudoir, we spent our weekend wandering round Battersea, which included a trip to the beautiful Battersea Flower Station (you will definitely see more of this in a post to come), and a stop off at Il Molino on Battersea Park Road for a spot of rhubarb cake, which now comes highly recommended from the three of us! I've never really explored the SW postcode before, so it was a treat to be guided round by a real expert. I do love to find out about new areas of London, as there are only so many times that you can walk up and down Brick Lane! Are there any parts that you think are the best? I'm determined to make the most of the capital whenever I'm in the South, so would love to hear any and all recommendations.
