Once again it's been proven that this tulle skirt is one of the hardest working items in my never ending wardrobe. It goes with absolutely everything. Pat on the back Sophie, pat on the back. I hit up the Topshop sale the day after Boxing Day and managed to walk away with these pumps - totally pretending to be a short Brooklyn Blonde - and two statement necklaces. I do love Topshop jewels but my oh my are they expensive. I can only justify the jewellery in the sale until I become a millionaire. I'm still working on that... These are the first pictures taken using my snazzy new Canon 1100d, a birthday present from my long-suffering boyfriend. Didn't he do well? I'm in love, completely and utterly in love with it.

So 2014 eh? Haven't you crept up on me quickly and who else thinks January is flying past?  New year, new starts and all that jazz. I've been having a think and my first goal of the new year is to try and perfect victory rolls and that elusive beehive. One day I will walk out the door looking like I've stepped back in time. Any tutorials you know to help me on my merry way? I also want to travel more, buy more midi skirts and finally run a 10k. But one step at a time eh?!
