SUMMER BALL

SUMMER BALL

Does anyone else like to plan for some things months in advance? I like knowing that I don't have to have any last minute wobbles trying to decide anything. At the moment, the next big event I have to think about is my Summer Ball, and currently I'm leaning towards wearing something like this. I imagine I'll change my mind a hundred times before the event, but isn't that part of the fun?

I have a bee in my bonnet and that bee is a pair of ripped white jeans. These bloggers (+ model) are all modelling them to their best potential and bringing out my green eyed monster. It looks like I'll be whipping out the scissors and gauging into my denim. ASAP.

GET IT OUT

ASOS SHOES / MONKI TOP / H&M SKIRT

Does anyone else have those items in their wardrobe that they've been dying to wear but just can't seem to find the opportunity? It's a friend's birthday... but they're just going to the pub. Out to dinner! Just casual. Everyone is going out, I have an assignment due. Let me out! Not for me, for my shoes-- how else am I going to learn to walk in them?

What better way to beckon Spring a bit closer than with a small compendium of colourful, pretty makeup. There is no palette fuller of the spirit of spring than than Chantecaille's limited edition 'Save the Bees' eye/bronzer quad. It's like looking at a newborn sheep or an easter egg, except it costs £74.

THE FOOD SHOP SHUFFLE


I am a terrible food shopper. I only ever go when I'm being forced to survive off the dregs and scraps that have taken residence in my fridge. Today, for instance, I had only eaten a piece of bread (stolen, and butterless due to pervading guilt that as I had thieved the bread I shouldn't be allowed to enjoy it) when I made the trip to my local Tesco.

However, I was determined that this time I wouldn't be beaten by my impulses and made a categoric list of food to put me through the next few days. I'm often milling about various houses, and so it's hard to get food in for a full week as I may quickly depart and leave a shelf full of food rotting in my absence, so efficiency and concision was key.

I bought a ton of produce (an onion, cherry tomatos, carrots, apples, bananas, spinach and basil), a small amount of dairy/meat poultry (natural yoghurt, turkey, eggs) and some bread and hummus.

With a few other ingredients I have already, I can make:
BREAKFAST: Egg on toast, omelette with spinach and tomato, yoghurt & Fruit (with granola), banana on toast (with peanut butter).
LUNCH: A week of turkey salad sandwiches
DINNER: One pot pasta (à la The Londoner) (with pasta from my cupboard)
SNACKS: Yoghurt, fruit, carrots and hummus (+pitta from my cupboard)

And it all only cost £11. Not bad for four breakfasts, a week of lunch, dinner and snacks to boot!
