A bit of a waffly one...

So, it's a sunny sunday for once :)  This post is just going to be a stream of consciousness-what-I've-been-up-to type of post. Sorry if you don't like that!

On Friday evening I went to Oxford to meet one of my friends. We went to a formal at her college (I miss uni!)
It was 5 courses! 5 courses people! The food was pretty good, but I focused mainly on the wine as usual. Oops.

On the train, primarily checking that I applied my lipstick correctly (w/o a mirror!) but turning into a bit of a pose with my book. Yup. The lipstick is Nars 'Shanghai Express'- a colour I love, but don't feel that I have occasion enough to wear it- and the book is Marya Hornbacher's 'Madness'. I am a massive fan of marya, and have the same curious fascination with the (mal)functioning of the brain as she does. Plus, she writes beautifully.

Did I mention that Oxford is beautiful? Especially when the sky is blue. Looks great against the perfectly manicured lawns.

Not a particularly flattering picture of me, but oh well, it's one of the only ones of me by myself!

So yah, that was my weekend. I went swimming today (60 lengths, my number) and am going to go to pilates at 3pm- one of the only classes that was available. I do like a bit of pilates, but every single other class I tried to book at my gym was full! Every one of them! And there are lots going on people. I wish people would fall off the post christmas/pre summer dieting bandwagon already, cos I certainly need to get on it!

Books wise, I am about to start reading 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and will be continuing with 'The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest'. (It's too easy to buy books on the kindle!)

So...sorry for this waffly post. It echoes the mish mash state of my mind at the moment, and I wanted to post if just to say hi, y'know. Hope you are all having good weekends, I'm off to catch up on some bloggies now xx


  1. Wine is is pilates. Ah yoga teacher warned us we may have to start booking on classes as the class was getting too full. Yep...wish people would fall of the Christmas/new year bandwagon already! They sure do seem to be taking longer than usual this year.

  2. Wow Oxford is pretty stunning, as is the colour of your lipstick.

    Fashion, Well Done

  3. I am the WORSE about appling lipstick without a mirror! I think my lips are actually larger then I realize because I always end up missing half of my top lip! =D You've got skill lady and that color is wonderful!

  11. Hey :)

    I love Oxford too! My Dad does a lot of work for Oxford Uni so I sometimes head up there with him and go shopping or take photos while he works. In September I start University in Cheltenham which is so close to Oxford so I cannot wait to spend loads of time there. My Uni looks really old fashion like Oxford but no where near as rated :L Beautiful pictures and lovely pic of you!

    Great post :)

  12. Oh, I love this post! <3 You have something special that fascinates me (sounds a little creepy, hm? :D).

    Marya Hornbacher is great, but I just read this Alice-book, kinda hard stuff, but really good.

    Hope you're fine, lovely!


  13. I read the Marya Hornsbacher book for my extended project as part of my research and ended up loving it! :)
