Don't you know i'd chop a limb off just to have a good time




Outfit:
Seaside print blue dress: Primark
Chunky cream cardigan: C/O Joe Browns
Grey tights: Primark
Grey pumps: Primark
Nail: OPI Strawberry Margarita and No7
Pearl and diamond ring: 21st Birthday gift

Not perhaps the most wintery looking outfit but surprisingly warm with my massive faux fur coat thrown on. This is one of my favourite dresses, I adore the print and colours. A bargain at £12 back when Primark used to be dirt cheap. Think it's from a few seasons ago. I tried an accent nail manicure today and really like the two colours together even if my mum thought I was mad having one nail a different colour. After looking at these photos I am not quite sure my legs are ready for coloured tights, look a bit of a chunky monkey haha! Ah well hopefully if I stick to my diet I shall be half a stone lighter by the end of the month. Wishful thinking!

If you follow me on Twitter you'll already have heard my amazing news. I have been offered a six month freelance paid journalism contract at the company where i'm currently interning! Someone actually believes in me to pay me for my writing! I am completely over the moon and in shock that I will actually be a proper journalist and no longer an intern. Fingers crossed i'll impress and there is the work there for the contract to be extended when it finishes in July. I have a list as long as my arm of things I want to buy and places I want to go. Hopefully this will start with a visit to Aberdeen to see a friend in March! It will be so nice not to be skint for a little while and know I have at least six months worth of money.
