Finished.

My exams are finally over, thank goodness. How are other people with exams doing?

To celebrate my coursemates and I went out for a three-course lunch at a mexican when we finished our last exam, and then that evening the boy and I went out for dinner as well. I think I ate enough to feed a family of four in one day. Oh dear. But celebrations involving food are always my favourite it must be said!
I wore this Topshop dress in the day, which I wasn't sure about at first - I only got it as the "Get One Free" part of the sale deal, but I'm glad I got it now =]


It appears I dressed down rather than up for the evening, I'm not sure how that happened!! I love the simplicity of a bandage skirt and striped tee at the moment. Primark keep bringing in new colours of the ridiculously cheap tube-tops, which I wear as skirts, and I couldn't resist this electric blue colour!
Oh and my housemates for next year and I (my current house is dispanding and we're all going to live with coursemates) picked our bedrooms yesterday. We did it completely fairly, picking a numbered room out of a bowl one by one, and I managed to pick myself the really TINY room that everyone was hoping they weren't going to end up with.
I can't remember exactly how small it was and now have visions of it having only a single bed or no wardrobe or desk or something - ARGH! Trust me to accidently pick the pea-sized room. I really want to see the room again to put my fears at rest, but won't be able to until August.

Where am I going to keep my shoes?!!

  1. No shoe storage...I don't think I like the sound of that! The single bed...at a stretch...but no home for my beloveds (hmm) can you back out it or have a flatmate deported or kicked out of school?

  8. Try keeping your shoe boxes & leave your shoes in them. Label the box at the side. Stack them up against a wall, so it looks neat and arranged. Simply pull out the box you want to wear. (like a shoe shop).

  27. A tiny room can be cosy! I'm sure you'll manage..Or you just attach wires all across your room and throw your shoes (with their heels, or laces?) over it. (watch the head)
