Radish Delight

I'm not a big fan of radishes as a rule...

They're bitter and hurt my tongue...

On a dress, however...

I think I'm in Love.

Wearing - ASOS radish print dress, charcoal lace up boots from Office, purple tights that were, for some unknown reason, stuffed in my pigeon hole (- when I had one, in 2nd year, as president of the theatre technician's association -) at the ADC Theatre and my trusty ToyWatch. When I went outside, I covered up with my (unseen) massive, comfy charcoal knit long cardigan that I filched from the mothership's wardrobe too long ago to remember... Click on the picture to see it bigger - the print is uber-cute and uber-wierd up close!

These pics amuse me... I look so darn crazeeeeee. Look! Insane glint in my eye? Steely set to my insanely strong jaw? Purple tights indicating I'm ready to attack any second? Stompy boots to kick my enemies out the way?

Oh yeah. Only I can see something fierce in the radish dress too... Radishes? They're like weapons of mass destruction right?

Hehe. Silliness (that I totally understand if you don't get... Don't think I understand the last two paragraphs ;-D) aside: I tried my best, but couldn't quite keep my new-on-today arm strapping out of the picture, so on the left pic, some white tape creeps around my arm. Sorry about that! Went to the physio this morning, and felt optimistic about my various joint-related ailments for the first time in ages... All the typing on an ergonomically unsound laptop has really aggrivated the damaged ulnar nerve in my right arm, but my amazing physio came up with some really helpful strategies to cope with the rest of exam term, and did some pressure point release therapy for my shoulder which has been getting really cramped to overcompensate for the fact my right arm just doesn't work properly.

I guess, what I'm trying to say is, don't type too much on your laptop! Everyone can have problems - not just totally broken me - especially in your back... from typing too much on laptops! They're like the worse thing ever for your neck and spine!

I'm doing the next best thing from getting a new desktop PC ( - hahaha, who can afford a new computer at the moment? - ) and both putting mine on a pile of books to raise my head and getting a separate keyboard and a mouse to go with it to try to reduce the flare-up of arm issues. It's bad enough in three hour exams when my arm goes dead every hour, on the hour, (for which I get legitimate extra time) without my fingers not working pre-exam due to typing on a computer that I shouldn't be working with!

I have to admit... The keyboard and mouse that is currently on its way to me, is not exactly standard. It may be incredibly, sillily girly.

Yes. This is the keyboard set I bought to assist my arm-recovery:
How cute is that?!?! (If you're equally enamoured, find it here.) Haha. Big change from the FIERCE-girl of yesterday eh! ;-D

So... Lecture over...

Two savings-codes today! And they're for reasonably priced but uber-kwl things!

Does anyone like Motel dresses? I got this email from their online shop, Motel Rocks this afternoon, giving people 20% off in their store JUST THIS EVENING so if you like something, type in easter20 at the checkout to get that discount!

Quite enamoured with these, and if I wasn't holding off on any more internet shopping 'til all the returns I've put in the post the past week clear, I'd be in there like a shot - especially that mesh back dress!


Also, the jewellery shop Lady Luck Rules OK are having a Secret Sale... Any purchases from the Fun Rocker Jewellery and Cute Accessories collections are 20% off if you enter the code CHEEPCHEEP at the checkout! That one ends MIDNIGHT (GMT) Easter Monday...

I'm rather enamoured with the "Playmates" necklaces and brooches, and am trying very very hard not to get me some!!!

I've also had a bit of a thing for the love letter from Paris and the bronze kodak camera necklaces for a while...



Sigh.

P.s. Find fashionable apparel and so much more online. No need to even leave the comfort of your own home. The best part is, they're for wholesale clothing prices!

Motel dresses are rad - too bad I don't have a penny to my name till next Friday, otherwise I would totally take advantage of that!

Radishes are pretty awesome, more so on clothes which begs the question: What is with the lack of vegetables on clothes??

Someone should get on that.

The dress is amazing! Love the soft colours, perfect for spring!

That ASOS dress is really nice. I think they should have fashion bloggers model their clothes because the images on their website really put me off buying the clothes but when I see bloggers wearing ASOS I like it.
