Dear diary, it rains in the caribbean- I was not told this...

Dear diary, 
Today is the 4th day in the Dominica Republic, I expected to be bronzed and tanned by now- but unknown to my knowledge, it is hurricaine season and Hurricane Sandy just left us here and has gone to the US (to my US viewers; hoping you are not effected in anyway and you're staying safe). Unfortunately, we have been left we moments of showers from the sky instead of burning hot sunshine. Who wants to be sunbathing all day anyway? Oh right. me. 
So, i took this moment to write to you to let you know even though it has it's moments of drizzle here, it still has gorgeous soft white sand, the bluest clear sea and the coconut filled forest of palm trees. 
I'm quite enjoying being here. 
Hope to write you again soon diary.
Ps. please bring back some sunshine ♥

Let's go to the beach, each, let's go get away...

After what seems forever, I have finally completed the stressfulness of my college work and in 6 hours I'll be at the airport on my way to my 11 day holiday! -Thank god!- I'm away for 11 days in the gorgeous Carribean; couldn't ask for a better get away. Hello sun, sea and white sand. Goodbye rain, fog and cold. Hopefully will come back glowing, if anything just hoping to be rested! University applications done, assignments done, now just the busy rush of Christmas for when I return. :( Goodbye beautiful amber leaves, hello naked trees. 
p.s. I'm taking my laptop with me, so with a bit of luck (and wifi) I will keep posts coming- if not I have some scheduale; just for you!
Enjoy your Halloween break and stay safe! ♥

From a cold wintery day with hats and scarves, to the departure to my holiday. 
At the hotel near the aiport now. Hopefully will be sharing pictures from the carribean- we shall see.

Too Tired To Talk...

The problem when you sit down to do work, watch TV for 5 seconds or even come on here, when you have only been getting 5 hours sleep, 6 days a week for the past 2-3 weeks, is that you're eyes start going, your body falls asleep and you're so cosy you can no longer concentrate. 
Ugh - I'm off to get some caffeine. It's going to be a loooooooong night.
Oh, and i'm hoping this doesn't happen to me in a bit when I have to walk my dogs, maybe I should be writing about business and marketing right now and not Fenton the dog on youtube...whoops. ♥

H & M did good...

So, I was browsing the shops on my lunchbreak and spent a while picking up items in H & M... normally I find 1 piece I 'um and aw' about but I found a selection of items I really wanted! Their Autumn Winter collection is beautiful- definitely a favourite shop this season ♥

Can bimbos be smart?

So...I bought myself some glasses. -fake glasses- Yes. I wanted to join in with the geek chic, indie nerd look. When they arrived they looked 80's size massive! Always try on glasses before you buy- valuable advice there. 
So tell me- too big? ♥

With or without?

Autumn is not just for Halloween...

In the UK, Halloween is not as big as most other countries, e.g. The USA. 
This is partly why I don't like Halloween, Britain isn't as enthusiastic about it as the Americans are- jealous. I wish we got excited about things like them. Britain is very... conservative. Very private and a bit arrogant in themselves. Our people are not ones to make fools of themselves for fun or full of energy- we tend to moan at anything for the sake of moaning. (I could be just describing my mom here) 
ANYWAY. I've never had a good Halloween for as long as I remember, something has gone wrong, nothings happened, nothing to get excited about or to have fun with. This is the reason why I hate Halloween. But it's Halloween month; a reason for a week off College apparently, so I'm happy about that. But what I'm most happy about is the look of Halloween- the look of Autumn. You just think ORANGE, right? Pumpkins, tree leaves, sunsets. It's definitely the prettiest time of the year. So if you also don't enjoy Halloween, at least enjoy the environment. And Hey...
it's not long till Christmas!! ♥


When you go to a fancy meal...

You must wear a dress and heels... or so I've heard...

OOTD: Dogtooth

I spoke about dogtooth prints (here) being big this season, if you look online and around shops you'll see there are lots of items with the print on. So, of course, I had to go get an item myself! This top was from my collection of shopping I got (here), styled here with red scarf, nails and lipstick I think it fits nicely into my wardrobe

Top;    River Island
Jeans;  H&M
Jacket; New look

I know I've been a little MIA this week and it will probably continue till next Wednesday- for this I apologise in advance. This is the result of short deadlines for 6000 words for a 9 page assignments of about 3-5 this week. PLUS I have to do my 'personal statement' for University for the end of this month. Oh the fun!
