"NO HELL BELOW US, ABOVE US ONLY SKY".

Listening to: Imagine- John Lennon

Lusting after the beautiful skull crop top in my previous post- I have gone a little skull print mad these last few days. Not only have I been adorning my hair in skull printed head scarfs, and filling up my skull piggy bank, I have also bought the most beautiful skull print dress from a charity shop- which I cannot wait to wear!

Such skull love inspired me to dust out my old long sleeve skull top for a surprisingly hot lazy day.

Top: Topshop
Shorts: DIY
Tights: Primark
Bracelet: Prairie Charms
Bag: Gift
Necklace: Gift (similar here)
Shoes: Not sure

I'm not sure why but I have always been very very attracted to anything with a skull on it, or in the shape of skulls (I'm actually attracted to anything to do with anatomy- and probably why I work in health care.) This top I bought 5 or 6 years ago and is still one of my all time favourite tops- although its slightly shrunk in the wash so the sleeves are a little short now.  Its just super soft and warm- even though it was very hot and warm out I still wanted the warmth- and I can dress it up or down (like with my DIY studded shorts).

New look have some right beauties in skull prints at the moment, like this sheer blouse, sleeveless shirt, and vest.
I had an unfortunate accident last night- trying to get to my boyfriends bed yesterday while moving round him I got caught up in his beanbag, and fell straight over. As I tried to more out of the way of my face hitting the wall I twisted so I couldn't put my arms out in front of me and instead when straight onto my shoulder and face. Chris was laughing for a good half hour- and I didn't stop laugh crying (as I have the unfortunate ability to do that) for ages!

In all fairness I was fine (although a little achy today) and looking back it was funny. But didn't stop me guilt tripping him into tucking me into bed and making me a cheese and pickle sandwich.

P.S. I have quite a few DIY posts lined up soon- as soon as I actually finish them (I need to get into the habit of finishing what I start before starting another).

    My boyfriend is ok, bless him. Some very drugged up guys just took a dislike to him, and as my boyfriend was drunk too, it didn't end well!

  25. You're a girl after my own heart, I love skull prints for some reason - maybe it stems from my childhood obsession with The Nightmare Before Christmas!
