velvet vans and chicken...


Meet my lovely boyfriend Curt. We spent Wednesday doing what we do best: eating lots of chicken. It was safe enough weather to wear my favourite shoes! I picked up these red velvet Vans on sale in an outlet store when visiting Florida over Christmas and they were such a crafty find. The only other place I've seen them is on Tumblr in a glorious petrol-blue shade but I imagine they would be trickier to wear with blue denim.
I know it annoys people when a cult product like Vans become trendy, but I find it kinda funny seeing them all over town. I can't afford to keep up with trends, and most of the time hunt for a quirky alternative instead, but if  trusty, smelly black-but-greying trainers are considered cool, even if only for a couple months, that's fine by me!

good news and flowers...

I've got a job!! Hurrahhh! I don't know about you lot but where I live, getting a job is pretty much impossible. But I was lucky enough to land myself a job as a Sales Consultant!

Can't stop wearing this
 Rose-Gold/White ombre H&M necklace, it's definitely fun to play with -an important factor to consider when purchasing jewellery, in my books! There's a pink vibe going on in this post, not a bad thing.

Had my induction on Saturday (aaaagh!) and then went hunting for flowers with Papa, he for the garden, me for the painting, and it made for a rather beautiful, very British-Countryside afternoon. So tomorrow I'll have some time to whip out the watercolours.What a splendid week x
