Having been a total lingerie enthusiast for at least the last six years, you can only imagine my delight to come across the most charming website, www.knickerocker.com. As an independent lingerie business located in LA, Knickerocker creates unique and ultimately gorgeous underwear. I just can't wait for payday so that I can rush over to their etsy shop (Knickerocker Etsy) and buy everything I can afford.

It feels as though I've been hiding under a rock, I last blogged in February and it is now May.
A few changes, I cut my hair as you can see in the photos. Everything is all systems go at the moment with University and job searching. To all of my beautiful friends who are stressing to the point of break, I promise that we can do this!!
In the time that I've been away, I've turned 21, attended high tea at The Ritz London, made my own high tea with my beautiful mammy, celebrated my Dad's birthday, written a few essays and drunk wine by the seaside. I want to make the most of my last month or so in beautiful Falmouth.

It has been a while since I've written.
Much to my mother's dismay, I've had my lip pierced. It did hurt, but only for 3 seconds, and I do have a bruise from the clamp, which is hidden behind concealer in the photo above, however, I quite like it! The boy said that it didn't look as bad as he thought, and my mam is now considering getting her nose pierced (isn't she such an absolute babe?)! In other news, I've spent a week at home whilst waiting for semester two of third year to begin, it is ever so sad to think that it is so far into my last year. It will be heart breaking to leave my beautiful friends. Nevertheless, I will be returning to Falmouth shortly to begin semester two (and with that, dissertation number two, booo!). It will be lovely to see everyone after a week, but it is always so hard to leave Swansea - regardless of how disgusting Wind Street is, I still miss the place. Before I leave, I may pop into boots to pick up a darker eyebrow pencil and try my hardest to resist buying hair dye! What is it about us girls and our hair? I get so god damn bored so quickly. I think it's time for a fringe trim if nothing else.So, hopefully next time I write I will be in Cornwall with good eyebrows and better hair...but no promises.

1. Fox slipper socks to keep my toes warm 2. Red Velvet brown with White chocolate frosting 3. My favourite tree decoration
I do genuinely feel like I should be more full of Christmas spirit, however, the christmas tree is finally up and the cake is finally baked. It's my job to ice the cake so I shall have to think up some ideas before Christmas day. Also, I have 3 festice cookie tins that my mammy expects to be filled with Christmas biscuits by the time she and my dad arrive home from Venice. How exciting!!
Here are a few photos of my favourite outfits this week. The boy told me that I look like Minnie Mouse in the headscarf (haha!) but it kept my ears warm and hid my bad hair day! I'm really into shirts at the moment, these two being my favourite. I seem to be paring them more with jeans now as it is just far too cold to wear anything other than denim.

(All Topshop apart from the shoe which are New Look)
In just under two weeks I have my mum's fiftieth birthday party (not to mention Christmas eve and day!) and so, all I have been able to think about is 'what shall I wear?' As I have planned the party myself, I am deemed host and so must look the part but not steal my mum's thunder (not that I could ever do that as she is just the most incredible person!) I absolutely love the Topshop dress featured above, but I fear it may be a little too body-con for the festive food baby I intend to be carrying around the whole season. However, I shall keep my eyes peeled for a pretty party dress to host the special occasion in, any ideas are more than welcome!!
Concerning the party, I have planned to make cake pops and rocky road and cover them entirely with edible glitter as well as getting the old record player down from the attic and playing some of my mums old records. The fridge is already stocked with champagne, wine and beer and the invitations have been sent to the masses of friends and family. I really want to make it special.
1. Fruit tea with the Boyf 2. Messing around with specs 3.Cups of Hot Chocolate
4. Hangover days 5. Christmas tree shopping with my family 6. Champagne toasts
I couldn't even begin to tell you how happy I am to be at home finally! It is just so lovely to see my family and friends but I will admit, home is quite definitely missing someone special. The boy has been away in America for a few days but is soon to be returning thankfully, I do miss him a lot.

Apologies for the poor quality of the photographs.
Instead of doing my actual work, Painting has taken over. It's been a while and I've certainly lost the knack for it a bit, but I didn't enjoy it any less. I wish I could paint ever day.

The past few days have been nothing if not traumatic.
Whilst home alone, Brum broke down (he's okay now though thank goodness!), I got locked in the downstairs toilet and my laptop keyboard stopped working just before my deadlines. If that wasn't enough, a spider bravely crawled over my hand this evening. After such terrible luck with such daunting deadlines looming overhead, it's been difficult to stay positive. This said, I have managed to throw myself into the depths of Virginia Woolf (for my essay proposal) and have been quite productive regardless of the reoccurring bad luck. It wasn't all bad though, I went to Plymouth on the Saturday to see Ben Howard perform at the Pavillions. He was just spectacular and it really does make me so happy to be where I am at the moment. Falmouth has been second home for two years now and it is heartbreaking that this is my last year. It really is such a wonderful place. I love you Cornwall.
