A bit of a gloomy day here in Belfast, but my little sister and I decided to take ourselves out to browse the shops and drink peppermint frappuccinos. High point had to be me seeing a tv crew, trying to run away and managing to go "uhhh what?" and try to run away again when some man asked me if I was a Libra (I'm not). Then I was so stunned I signed release forms and apparenly will be on BBC1 for some show about mindreading....uh, great. GO ME.

My nails are Fuzzy Peach by Models Own and I used their nail pen for the leopard.

I picked up this dress in a teal-ish colour today as well. I love it! There was a lovely floral patterned version but I already own so many florals. I thought they would be good to take to Japan with me since they're quite light and it'll be really humid there. I also bought something semi sensible, eggcups! But even when I buy sensible things they have to be a little silly - so they're Hello Kitty.

We really went to the shops to get my little brother a birthday present, he turns 20 tomorrow, scary! I somehow found myself in Topshop, oops. But I got all the 5 things below for a total of £14.85! Sale + Student discount = I love Topshop. I'd wanted this necklace since forever but originally it was £20, then they must have brought in a new price point because it was £14, still a bit much for me, but I managed to get it today for £6.70. The ring was £2.50, the pencils £2 each and the shadows only £3 for the palette. I've said it before, I love Topshop make up.

Topshop sale goodies.

I've been attempting Dissertation work, first chapter submission is next week ahh! I have mostly been distracted with Game of Thrones though. How amazing is it? I can't believe the first season is over already. They're coming back to Belfast in July to film season 2 though and I plan on doing a little stalking...ahem. I just bought the first book and plan on starting it once I finish Caitlin Moran's How to be a Woman which will be soon I'm sure as it's so, so funny and I'm flying through it! Speaking of Game of Thrones I did a little post on my other blog about the women in it, and there's a good few other ones I have written over the last few weeks which I would love you to check out if you like film and feminism.

I'll try to most more regularly, at the minute dissertation work and moving (on Monday!) are keeping me busy! A bit of a change of music I'm leaving you with this week, but this video is so bizarre and adorable and the song is great. Not my usual singer songwriter finish but I hope you like it all the same.
