There is thunder in our hearts.

Ah shit. How did I miss my blogging birthday AGAIN?!

I always seem to think its Christmas Eve and its not, its a few days earlier than that. I would just like to say to everyone who ever bothers to read my ramblings, that every comment and page view is very much appreciated. This blog has brought me many great opportunities and, especially at the moment, helps to keep me positive about hopefully doing something vaguely creative with my life, rather than being in M&S forever. Although, saying that, please do give me some ideas about different types of post you would like to see- the blog in its old format just doesn't work anymore now I have to wear a uniform. I must expand and develop!

Anyway, so this is what I wore on Christmas Eve. Apologies for all the cars, I got my sister to take this in rather a rush before we went to the Nativity in our neighbouring village, complete with a real live pony/donkey! The top is a new one I purchased the other day whilst in Cornwall last week. Its from a range called Bonbi Forest, which are items printed with work by Lee May Foster Wilson. I bought it from a shop in Penzance which I absolutely adore, called Space. Its a little big for me since I bought it in a large (the actual sweatshirt is an American Apparel one, and I thought their sizes were tiny, but apparently a large is a 14-16) but it is great nonetheless. I really love the thunder and lightening print and the slouchy fit. I wasn't quite sure what to pair it with since this is probably the first pale blue item of clothing I have ever owned, but I quite liked it with the orange, and the mini-ness of the skirt stopped me morphing into a shapeless mess.

I was going to post some pictures from last week too but to be honest, I've just looked at them again, and they're not terribly interesting. I took many a macro shot of the amazing imported goods they had in this food hall we stopped at (ok, I know that sounds weird but some of the packaging was pretty cool, and I have a slight obsession with macro) and not very great pictures of Mousehole's Christmas lights, since my little point and shot just could not do them justice.

I have a very interesting life.

Tomorrow I'm going sales shopping with my mum and sister, although I must admit I don't have a huge amount of energy for it. We shall do our usual and select specific shops to go into before making a swift exit. Hopefully I might have something exciting to show you though!


  1. I am delighted to see some more Hattie action, I check your blog Every Day ^__^ Does that merit some sort of fan award? Methinks yes. Regarding future blog content, could you maybe work in some food related posts? Mainly because your kitchen excites me and I want to look at pictures of it <3 Or perhaps some sort of running thing on Beautiful Things I Saw on the Way to Work today - Plymouth station could surely provide lots of material for this! Love love xx

  2. I love this outfit, that skirt is fab! I like reading all about your life and all the different things you do, I think we are on very similar paths at the moment! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year :D

  3. I love the colour combination here, truly envious of your skirt too! The shoes - also a massive win. Hope the sales shopping went well :)
