Break me on the thirty-seventh hour.

White tee: c/o COLLECTIVE. Leather skirt: £13.50, Topshop. Mug: gift (from my brother!), Cath Kidston.

For me, "home" means the Essex countryside. As far removed from TOWIE as feasibly possible (okay, about fifteen minutes drive from Sugar Hut, but we'll ignore that), I often find myself enjoying a good cuppa in the kitchen with whatever book I happen to reading at that moment in time; today's novella of choice happens to be The Great Gatsby. I do like the quiet of home, but I can't help but miss Liverpool's hustle and bustle more than a little bit. I'm looking forward to settling in again, i.e. cramming the heinous amount of clothes I've managed to build up over the past few months into my wardrobe, and catching up with friends I haven't seen for a few months. I hope the rest of you who are coming back from university are returning to homelife just as comfortably, and, if you need it, Yorkshire Tea's currently on offer in Morrison's, and everyone knows that it's the best one out there!

The finest clothes that you can find.

Silky collar tee: £18, American Apparel. Shorts: £69, Carven via Cricket. Denim jacket: £63, Hobbs. Shoes: 50p, Russell and Bromley via ebay. Satchel: Stylistpick. Watch: Rotary. Necklace: gift. Phone case: 99p, ebay. Lipstick: Topshop Mischief.

Who could possibly resist matching their nail varnish, phone case, and location? Magazines like to call it a "pop of colour", but I tend to call it a coincidence that Jazmine pointed out as we were strolling down Rodney Street. This isn't the most exciting outfit ever, I know, but I don't wear new things every day, and as this is one of my typical everyday outfits it only makes sense to document it.


Although this was photographed in Liverpool (one last one coming for you soon), I'm back home in Essex and acclimatising myself to the Southern temperatures and no internet (sob!). Everything's a bit up in the air at the moment, what with trying to move house, trying to find a job, and trying to learn how to draw on symmetrical eyebrows, but I'm sure we'll get there at some point. In the meantime I'll be sure to content myself with plenty of orange juice and afternoons spent reading the books I never got round to in the garden. I hope you've all got a lot planned for this weekend, let's hope it stays sunny!

I'm covering my ears like a kid.

Dress: c/o Karma Clothing. Shoes: £76.50, Topshop. Denim jacket: £63, Hobbs. Sunglasses: £2, Primark. Bag: gift from Jazmine. Lipstick: MAC Ravishing.

It's got to the time of year when I really ought to throw my weight past Primark's selection of novelty sunglasses. Thankfully I didn't purchase the pair that would result in pink glittery flamingos adorning each of my eyeballs however much I wanted to, and instead went for trusty cateyes, after I ceremoniously sat on my last ones. RIP dotties, you served me well. To tone down the in your face nature of glittery frames, I paired them with my new dress, black accessories, and my trusty denim jacket. I love the fabric and know it'll be perfect to throw on in summer, but I'd recommend you size up as the proportions of this particular piece run a little small.

On a day when I looked distinctly less glam (I was wearing jeans, okay), I went for a wander Northwards to visit the football stadiums Liverpool is a little (okay, a lot) famous for. I'm not a football girl, I go to the odd match when I'm home (I live with an ardent Leyton Orient supporter and my dad has a season ticket for Arsenal, so I've inevitably had my fair share of half-time fish and chips), but I'm yet to write up a match review other than to ask "did you see that ludicrous display last night? What was Wenger thinking putting Walcott on that early?". Living in Scouseland may not have got me glued to telly every Saturday, but I have my allegiances and thought it was only about time to visit the grounds. I, of course, paid my respects at the Hillsborough memorial erected by the Shankly Gates, and loved all the international (and even Everton!) teams' scarves showing their support and solidarity. After our seven mile round walk, we headed back to central and treated ourselves to Shipping Forecast's two for one burger offer, which I couldn't recommend more. Why do I always find the best things at the last minute?!
