I'm SO excited for the summer!  

I was browsing the shops the other day and I think I have my summer essentials picked out:

I've always worn dark frames so these make a refreshing change, and they're the cat eye shape that I like.

I love this hat so much, it's bigger than it looks here and it has a big floppy brim <3 I tried it on and thought I looked cute ^^;;

I've really been into lavendar lately, and I think these are a nice subtle lavendar that will go with most outfits. They're made from the softest leather I think I've ever felt and I love the vintage feel of them.

I also really love Angelic Pretty's newest print, French Cafe. I totally hated it when I first saw it, but it's been growing on me more and more until I must own it! I love how cute and whimsical the print is, and I think it's really versatile and can be used as a regular summer dress too, which is better as it means I'll get more wear out of it. Thankfully it doesn't seem to be a very popular dress, so as I'm skint I'm gonna wait and hopefully snag it cheap from the comm sales or auctions.


My new dream dress ♥


I've also been doing a good amount of thinking, and I'm going to quit uni and move back home once I can. I have plans though: I'm going to do my best for a "regular" job to get some money behind me, and then train to do something so I've always got a career to fall back on. At the moment I'm thinking a hairdresser or a beautician or nail technician or something. That way I can still try aiming for the Disney thing, but I'll have a back up plan (which uni was supposed to have been if it had worked out). But I'm still going to go to Disneyland whenever I feel like and pop down to London for the day to go to loli meets and such. I'm so happy to have my head sorted out, it was driving me mad and I'm now looking forward to the immediate future instead of dreading and fearing it <3

Little Bears Cafe

I told myself I wasn't going to buy any more brand, but I've been pondering this dress for a while and when I saw it was still in stock I just had to have it. And I couldn't resist getting the matching muffler to go with it <3 Blouse, bag and shoes I already own but decided whilst I was on Polyvore I may as well go the whole hog and complete the outfit. The blouse actually matches the bag, bad stock pic.

As well as Halloween, today is also my step brother Ben's birthday. I was supposed to be spending the day with him, but feel so spectacularly crap that I had to cancel and have spent the day mooching around my flat instead (after getting up at 2pm). Because of how I've been feeling, I haven't done anything for Halloween. I've just stayed in watching Film4. So far it's been The Others, a film I've wanted to see and not gotten round to until now, and White Noise, a film I used to love when it came out and am now wondering on earth why XD And now The Innocents is just starting.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for me. And hopefully my new outfit won't take too long to arrive <3 Retail therapy is the best therapy.
