Hallelujah!

*Drum Roll*

Today's post, for your viewing pleasure, actually features lovely, well lit, well shot on a proper camera, photography... This is because I (gasp!) told one of my best friends about the blog.

I had hoped to keep it a complete secret from my nearest and dearest, but when it comes down to it, TB knowing about it is a small price to pay, as I trust his discretion, for Actually Nice-looking outfit posts! 

My clothes aren't all the dingy nothings they've looked up to now... The light in my room and the crappiness of my camera just don't make nice images!

So... without further ado, let me introduce:

Frolicks, jumps and wanderings around the Backs: trampling a few crocii and swinging from a few bars on the journey...





Here we have moi in a Gap tshirt, the Rokit scarf, a charity shop skirt - Sally Anne's Salvation Army Store, Mill Rd, Cambridge is a treasure trove, Riva boots, my treasured but slightly beaten up Toy Watch (I'm currently coveting the Fluo Winter Purple and Winter Pink ones... sigh), Whistles gloves, Ark purple rose leather bracelet, green bead necklace - bought in Florence - worn as bracelet, and grandma's brooch...

Disclaimer: No I wasn't cold. It's quite warm out today, and I was bouncing too much to feel the breeze ;-D - though in case you were wondering, my cover up, which I left in the library, is a camel coloured Paul Costelloe princess coat. It's amazing. Everyone should have one. Get one in a John Lewis sale ASAP! So so so worth every penny in warmth and design.

Disclaimer 2: Sorry there are quite a few photos. I'm not a narcissist, honest. I just loved how well these turned out. And we took over a hundred, so getting it down to these was a task! ;-D

Oh, we did have fun! It was an excellent diversion from the essay I am supposed to be writing... Supervision in 2 hours 50 minutes and counting. 911 words written, probably 1,300 (+) to go.

This is going to be a shoooooort essay... My long-suffering, ever-patient supervisor's not going to be pleased. Oops!

Disclaimer 3: I wrote this as a draft a few hours ago... In truth, been there done that. Essay was fine, if a little lacking in cohesion.

That's all for now, folks!

It took me over a year to tell most of my friends about my blog, adn that was only because I got invited to the Absolut party and needed to explain!! Mostly very positive, actually, noone mocked or laughed like I was expecting them to!!

Didn't get anyone to take outfit photos for me though. Damn I know so few photographers! Your photos are lovely!!!!

Wow that is absolutely beautiful! haha some of my friends know I have a blog but apparently they secretly do too! haha. I guess it's easier letting strangers know the side of you than it is your friends.

Your photos are lovely, I myself partaked is some frolicking today. My favorite photo is the one were you are swishing your hair around.

These photos are so so so gorgeous! =) Woww I wonder when I'll have the guts to tell my closest friends about it. I tried to break the news to my close friend when she came back during the holidays but then it just felt too weird. Wonder when I'll be able to get over that barrier >< It's so great that now your friend will be able to help you with the photo shots! Where exactly is this place you took photos at? The scenery is so nice.... ;) dreaming of places like that to visit next time already.
