"You are lost, you can never go home"

dress: New Look
bag: Restyle.pl
sandals: Clarks
Evenstar: birthday present from O
bracelets: Accessorize, Christmas present from K



This is my hair on a good day.

One of my most prized possessions is this Evenstar necklace O got me for my birthday. She really likes Lord of the Rings too, so it was difficult for her to part with it! I adore jewellery from one of my many obsessions because I feel awesome wearing it, and it's a great conversation starter. For example, on the taster days for my new school two years ago I quite deliberately wore the One Ring round my neck in the hope of finding fellow-minded people. It worked a treat and I'm going to try it when I go to uni too.

Stripes


I've found that I pretty much never wear anything stripey. It's just not a part of my wardrobe. That's not to say I don't think they can look amazing though. I've also found that, whatever your size, you don't need to be scared of even the boldest of stripes, because it's all about balancing your shape out. (Take a lesson from Gok!) Here are eight of my favourite stripey looks I found on LB.

Pea Head

on deviantART
If you're my friend and it's your birthday in the summer holidays when I have sackloads of time, this happens. I spend one of my mornings staring at multiple photos of your face in an attempt to draw you something nice. It only looks a little like her and I ran out of space on the page to make her hair long enough but it will do.

"You may rise to find the sun"

I got into uni! And now I am really worried. I was so ready for this but now I feel I am really not. What's probably going to happen is I'll get there with all my stuff and sit down and cry for a week until lectures start and I actually have to start learning things again. Anywho.
One Ring: Mordor
t-shirt: H&M
bag: 'Made in Italy'
shorts: Peacocks
socks: Next
boots: Safiya

Aren't these little shorts the cutest? I'd been looking round for some ultra-comfortable loose shorts for summer, but was reluctant to spend £20 on them, but then I found these in Peacocks for less than £7. They feel like pyjamas, and because they're shorts, I can roll around in them without flashing any unfortunates who happen to be around.

Badge collection

In one of my drawers there is a medium-sized black box sitting quietly in the corner. Every now and again, this box is gently tipped upside-down onto the bed under the sun, and its contents come sprawling out into a pile of pleasing disarray.


This is my badge collection. Some are inherited from my sister, but I treasure every single badge in my box, because they each carry some kind of memory association, whether it with to a time, a place, an old friend, or a new friend. Many are souvenirs, a couple I found on the ground, some were gifts.

A close-up of a few of my favourites
My old-time favourite is the beautiful blue painted mask in the bottom left, which was a present to my sister from her friend. Since early childhood, I remember sneaking into my sister's room to take out her black box of badges (it was a watch box back then) to take out the mask and turn it over in my fingers, admiring its composure and elegance.

A badge with a lot of sentimental value for me is the white seal, also in the bottom left. My best friend and Wifey gave it to me in primary school, where I wore it on my jumper every day. It now lives in a special little blue box with a few bracelets and the treble clef, also presents from Wifey.

Of course, I also had to show you close-ups of my Pokemon and Zelda badges!
