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
Current Mood: okay

I really like the hat. Also, I think French Café is quite nice (I usually like anything with cake in the print :D). I wish they made the print round the border a bit smaller though.

Yeah, the border bit is my least fave part, I gotta admit. I think I'd of liked it slightly more if they hadn't bothered with the border and just kept it as a repeating print like with Little Bear's Cafe (my other favourite print <3)

Vocational careers are the way to go for steady work. :D Glad to hear you've got everything planned out!

Thats what I thought, and it's easy to get a job as a hairdresser or whateer once you're qualified and it's always something I've been interested in doing throughout my life (when I was 14 I had ideas of owning my own hair salon). I dunno why I didn't consider it before, I kinda got it into my head that uni was the only way for a career ><

Whoa, new layout! So many eyes! :)

Love the things you've picked out! They're adorable and definitely seem like you.

As for uni--YOU know what you need to do. I know it wasn't easy to come to that decision and it's incredibly brave of you to do it. *hugs*
