I literally had to swim to uni this morning, this weather is an absolute joke! I was one of those losers who's umbrella turns inside out and everyone laughs at, today has not been my day. On a brighter note, I found out that I got an internship in London which I'm really happy about. The next stage is to start looking for somewhere to live which is a little scary but hopefully some friends off my course will all join together. I managed to take some outfit photos today despite the awful weather and as a result, my now frizzy hair. This is the jacket I bought from Zara the other day, it is different to the one I originally showed in the 'Today I bought' post as it has gold detailing and a fold-over collar but I can't find this one on the website. I love the combination of the light khaki canvas fabric with the PU leather-look sleeves, I always buy garments with contrasting textures so this is right up my street. I wore it with this plain off-the-shoulder-marl grey jumper and my shiny lycra AA leggings which I practically live in. Can't say they are too good on a rainy day though...they are currently drying over the radiator in my room which isn't even switched on.

I'm off to 'Bed' tonight for a friend's birthday night, unfortunately I do wish I was heading to my actual bed! I'm not a fan of nights out when the weather is so bad, my fake tan runs and I end up looking like an orange zebra and in turn being miserable for the night! Hopefully it might calm down by the time I need to start getting ready so fingers crossed - that's what you get for living up North though I've learnt!

    1. Sorry I haven't got a hair tutorial! I literally back-comb all of my hair, spray with hairspray, brush it all backwards and then tie it up with a bobble. I then spread it out to create what my friends call the 'croissant' shape! I've tried to do this on other people's hair but it doesn't work, I've got permanent extensions so I think that's what makes it stay in this shape x
