When she wakes up in the morning she writes down all of her dreams

Cream skater dress: H&M
Heart patterned tights: Primark
Black faux suede wedges: New Look
Leopard print faux fur coat: Next
Gold ball necklace: Topshop
Gold round wire earrings: Topshop
Assorted gold bangles: Topshop, Acessorize and Primark
Red plastic watch: Toywatch

Yes yes I know I have worn this dress in my last proper outfit post but I am a pauper and don't have any money to buy any clothes. Plus everyone wears an outfit more than once right? Soz for the awful facial expression in the first picture, my camera is complete poop and it hates taking more than one picture.

I have not had this coat off my back since last Tuesday, it is perfect for winter. It has really gone cold recently. I also feel a bit like Bet Lynch in it which can only be a good thing as she rocked the old animal print back in the day. So pleased to be busting out my patterned tights, shamefully found about 7 new pairs in my drawers. Too pretty to be kept hidden away!

Off out for the first time in four Fridays, just a shame it is only to the local pub for some karoke. Quite a few people are work are leaving as they are opening up a Next Home store in town so they are transfering over. For £3 we get a the back room of a pub, as much buffet as we can eat and the chance to laugh at colleagues destroying their favourite songs. What more do you want from a night out eh? I have also been giving the weekend off work. Score! Going to try and source out some indoor bootsales or jumbles to visit. Seeing Foster the People Sunday night, guess I actually need to listen to a few of their songs. I only booked a ticket for a night out!

If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I have had some good news. I will working full time back in London as from the week after next. I have been offered a two month internship in Hoxton with the possibility that it will be made into a more permament position is all goes well! Fingers crossed that I impress eh? I cannot wait to be back in the city and writing again!

What have all you lovelies got planned for weekend?
