wait a minute mr postman

Upon hearing the the doorbell chime at around 11.30 this morning, the only thoughts running through my head were that of, 'please let someone else be awake so that I don't have to get up' and 'there is no way that i'm leaving the comfort of my bed', however, no footsteps where to be heard throughout the house and there was no opening and closing of doors. With this, the thought occurred to me that perhaps the parcel was mine and I near enough leapt out of bed. I was so glad to have forced myself out of bed. My absolutely incredible mother had sent me one of my favourite, but as good as unworn, dresses, my pearls and my headband for a 1920's themed night out that I shall be attending soon this month and some money to keep me going! This definitely made my whole day. Also, I got 99 photos for 99p from snapfish.com which were delivered today. How exciting!

Now, the money I was supposed to be using to 'keep me going' was probably intended for food and bills but upon a visit to Falmouth's vintage flea market with the darling Annie and Suzie, I found this Charlotte Halton shirt. I am led to believe (courtesy of my mammy) that before River island was River island, it was Chelsea girl, but before it was Chelsea girl it was Charlotte Halton! I love sheer shirts at the moment but topshop is just so expensive considering that I am a poor student, so this was not only vintage and beautiful enough to catch my eye, but was a purse stealing six pound! I am so pleased with my purchase, not to mention a lovely day with friends well spent!
