It's birthday weekend! I spent today at Colchester Food & Drink Festival with Daniel and my parents, which was pretty darn summery and lovely. Here are some laughable outfit snaps for you - that woman clearly had no concept of the blogging world, no?

I best get some zzz's now. I'm off to Thorpe Park in the morning for actual actual b-day! Toodle pip.

inspiration station

I've lost all kinds of inspiration when it comes to Carelessly Cut. But I miss it so much. My plan is to sort myself out next week and, in the meantime, I'm finding motivation in a tie-dyed Drew Barrymore: perhaps my ultimate fashion idol.

If you're wondering what on earth I'm up to, this weekend sees me enjoy Colchester's famous food and drink festival with lots of mine and Daniel's family as an early birthday get-together. On Sunday - my actual birthday - Daniel and I are off to Thorpe Park! I haven't rollercoaster-ed it up in an age, so I'm pretty darn excited.

How is everyone?

This is a speedy post because I'm leaving for London any minute - I'm going to Jewellery Week for work, which is primarily situated at Somerset House. I'm really excited and can't promise that I won't be ever so cheeky in making a purchase or two. Oops.

I hope you all have a bangin' Friday!

Despite loving my new job ON TWO MAGAZINES, I wake up in my new flat (!) with a grumble and long for more zzz's / I spur myself on by pairing jazzy new boots (from Glamorous) with my outfit / I meet my going-to-work buddy Holly and we natter as per usual, basking in the glorious sunshine / the working day is a good'un: I get lots done, get given a free Calippo, enjoy a walk to Tesco on my lunch break and find out I'm going to London Jewellery Week next Friday.

And now I'm here, writing this post. I don't have any firm plans for this evening but it's definitely going to include food and a big smile for Daniel when he gets home.

luxury wishlist

I've been torturing myself lately with Harrods. When I used to intern there, it was extremely difficult to keep focused on the job at hand when meandering around seven floors of utter luxury. And now, I find myself perusing the website on my lunch break and debating whether I deserve a little treat or not. Maybe once I've paid the bills.

I'm obsessed with all things House of Holland, Acne and Alexander McQueen so, naturally, they made it onto my wishlist. I've also been craving white dresses lately and the Saint Laurent number is heavenly. You can never have too many sandals in my opinion but my collection is severely lacking, so the Carvela ones would be dreamy, no?

I also have the biggest urge to combine those Miu Miu sunnies with a shocking pink lipstick - preferably Chanel - and dye my hair a lighter shade of blonde. You get me?

As for the Mulberry monkey bookmark, I don't need it. But I want it.
