black.and.gold.


I have been so busy doing really unproductive things lately. Like browsing online shoe stores, buying in real shoe stores and watching more internet TV than one ought to.

I have done one productive thing today though, as I bought/hired what I need for my (circus ringmaster style) halloween costume. I'm pretty scared about spilling something on the hired jacket, but fingers crossed there will be no accidents. I'm excited to get all fancy-dressed up on Friday, though my friends and I haven't yet decided which club we're going to. Decisions, decisions!

Also, is it only me who forgets how dark it goes so quickly in winter?!
Since the clocks went back it now gets dark at 5.30pm, which is insane.
Plus it is far too chilly and my nose is cold, even indoors, boo!

  1. Oh Gosh, you're so right about winter time and getting dark so soon...

    Here traditionaly we don't celebrate halloween, but some clubs are trying to introduce it, it's a way to do more business ;)

    Everything will be ok and your costume wouldn't be damaged.
    Looking for pictures...

    Love that necklace
    xxo

  3. i've been so unproductive too.. shoe stores, the fashion spot, blogger... and i have exams tomorrow, so yours is really going to be the last i comment!

    i'm excited for halloween too.. i will be free from exams, and get to dress up! i think i'm going to go as marie antoinette circa petits trianons phase, either that or blair waldorf from gossip girl. ah the possibilities!!! maybe i'll go have a look at possible costumes... No, hannah, do some worK!

    okay. we're going into summer, so it's all dark and hot and blah. in winter it's all dark and cold... but i love it! cold weather is my favourite thing in the world.

    the clothes are much better for the winter, you see?
    hahaha. i love your necklace!

  16. My nose is always cold too! It has suddenly got much more cold and dark, hasn't it? Proper winter time I think! I love the circus ringmaster costume idea too, I was gonna buy one of those mildly slutty pre-made ones in the same vain and "hollaback girl" it up a bit, but I changed my mind to Minnie Mouse. God, I love Halloween! Char x

  17. I don't like it getting so dark so soon:( I feel that I'm missing half the day!
    Ha, thanks for the comment on my blog. High School Musical has been a nightmare but I must admit to spending half my shift sneaking into a screen to watch it hehe

    Other than that I kind of like the fall and winter, the clothes are better and it gets cozy inside when you light some candles an tealights :)

  23. omg ok this is going to sound very weird but did you get on a bus in withington last wednesday?? i was on the way back from work and i swear i saw someone who looked just like you and thought hmmm that girl looks familiar but didn't think much of it, now i'm going through my google reader and came to your bog and i think it was you! big apologies if not, this might seem a bit crazy! btw i'm going to 5th ave on friday for halloween, although my friends are no so up for dressing up much, but i have tricks up my sleeves! we figure it will be the only club that will be fairly full, as sankeys and tiger are doing nights but it's reading week so most ppl are heading home
