I've been awful at posting of late. I'm sorry! I really want to get back into the swing of things and posting more often but it's just finding time and the inspiration at the moment. Again, still feeling out of touch with everything.

Our plans re New York are coming along and we might be buying our flights this week. One month left in the UK is scariness!!! I'm currently cleaning like a loon, trying to sort out my life (aka. my room).

Thank you all so much for your comments and advise, you guys have been amazing. There are some really kind people out there, and I appreciate all your pointers and contacts so please chuck me a comment/email if anything comes to mind.

Anyway! So in the midst of my cleaning and minimalising (is that a word?) my life, I'm putting a lot of things on ebay so if anyone's interested then you know have a little looky!!

Here's the link to my bits and bobs on sale, more items to come this afternoon when I finish tidying.

Hope you all had a really happy holiday and Santa was good to you.

Is it me or is AA getting more expensive? Am I just getting poorer?

Yesterday I got told I was being made redundant, not that I didn't see it coming, credit crunch and all that shizz. Now I really need to get my ass in gear and sort out NYC. I'm still desperately looking for somewhere to live. Any of you sweetcheeks out there got any contacts who might want to put a little english couple up for a while? Now it's my chance to leave this horrible job!!

A few little staples above that are on my list of current AA purchases. Must. Not. Eat. Too. Many. Mince. Pies!

Are you ready for Xmas yet? Not me!

Ahhh Rodarte. How beautiful and memorizing these pieces are together.

I am still feeling out of touch. I hope to resume normal service soon. I'm praying for some spare time to catch up on normality to come around this week. My bloglovin tells me have 249 posts to read, that number itself makes me anxious. I need time with some fashion magazines.

This week and weekend have been lovely and hectic. Me and the boyf went to London and did some shopping, no xmas presents I might add though. Went to see the amazing Vivian Girls at the Macbeth. Check them out, all girl trio who ooze coolness. They dress and play like they are exuding no effort and it works perfectly.
They have some pretty questionable tattoos though, which caused me and my boyfriend to chat at length about friends bad tattoos and how we really both really want to get something but don't want to end up being included in peoples conversations about friends bad tattoos.

Bumped into friends in Shoreditch, drank too much, slept in hottest hotel room ever = hangover. Did some shopping in Brick Lane, felt too awful to search in Beyond Retro, very disappointed in myself. Picked up a gorgeous nautical vintage navy blazer. Boyf got a lovely checked shirt and a vintage t-shirt with dolphins wearing sunglasses on it, you have no idea how pleased with himself he is with this purchase.

Spent way too much money in Urban Outfitters, me and boyf bought the same pair of acid wash jeans in the sale, same size and everything, I told him we should just buy one pair and share but he wasn't having it. I think it's thrifty, he thinks it's freaky sharing clothes, although he often wears my jeans and big checked shirts and visa versa. We are slowly morphing into each other and it's so funny, there's nothing we can do about it.

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend and are getting ready for Xmas. I am not. This week it's my mission. If there is anything important I need to catch up in the blog world, let me know. I have 249 posts that are dying to tell me stuff.

p.s. I ask myself, are acid wash jeans now "out' considering they were in the sale. I don't care if they are. I like them.

Hello hello, or should I say "dzien dobry".

It's so nice to be back although I had such a nice time in Poland. The people were lovely, it wasn't even that cold and it's really cheap there!

No style tidbits to bring back from there I'm afraid, I have felt very very cut off from things the last week or so, can't wait to see what's been going on in the blogosphere and think about clothes again!!!

Will be posting soon, once I reconnect with reality back in blighty.

Hope you're all well. xxx

So I'm having my haircut tomorrow and I'm currently looking for inspiration. I'm definitely feeling the looks above.
I love having a bob.
I love it being all messy.
I try and mess it up even more but it just wants to tidy itself.
Stupid straight hair.

I have a fun week coming up + a week away from my office.
Haircut. Pack. Go to Poland. Meet some lovely Polish people. Fly back. Tidy house. Laaanddaaannn fun with boyf.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.

p.s. Thanks for the NYC tips my lovelies, you have no idea how much I appreciate it. Now if I could just find somewhere to live, bob would be your mothers brother.

I saw this and I thought why not?

So a lot of stuff has been happening recently. I've been so busy with work and I'm going to Poland and it's Xmas coming and it's all so hectic!! For some crazy reason me and the boyf thought it would be a good idea to try and go in live in New York and get internships for a while next year. You know, as you do. Now it turns out that it might actually happen and soon. The prospect of being able to help out at fashion week has swayed me immensely. I need help, my brain hurts.

- where are we going to live?
- how are we going to afford this?
- are allowed to even go and do internships in the US?
- what am I going to do with all my stuff?
- how am I going to get this sorted by mid January?
- am I doing the right thing?

If anyone can answer any of these questions for me I'd be forever indebted to you. I need advice/contacts/anything you can give me! Bloggers please help a fellow blogger in need. If you know anyone/anything that could help us we'd be so happy.

p.s. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
