"WOULD YOU BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU, YOU ARE THE QUEEN OF MY HEART."

Listening to: Love Buzz- Nirvana

Exciting news: I have won a show ticket will be going to London Fashion Week on Friday and I am VERY excited. I've been following all the excitement via twitter and literally cannot wait!

This jumper is my all time favourite jumper I own, and is my go-to item as soon as I walk in through the door, and I treat it somewhere between a jumper and a jacket.

Its MASSIVE!

My nan knitted it for me without measuring me, and was honest that she knitted it a 'little' big (I joked when she gave it to me if she had knitted it for my dad). It honestly was not THIS over sized when she knitted it but after losing weight and stretching its now as shown. I love it! This is the sort of thing I wear on lazy days- where I have no plan in the world of the house.



Jumper: Knitted by my Nan
Dress: H&M
Socks: Primark
Garters: DIY
Creepers: Camden
Necklace: Topman

I don't think you can go wrong with an everyday baggy jumper- and I am incredibly lucky my nan knitted me one. But if you were looking for something similar (or I am hoping next Christmas jumper) these are the ones I like.



I really like the two-tone effect of the first from ASOS Marketplace (and the unusual 'cut' of colour), and how versatile the second is; but I LOVE the colour of the third and especially its cropped sleeves.

I also wanted to show you my awesome eyebrows! I love adding a hint of colour to my brows but I realised I tend not to show you. So here they are in all their Petrol glory (eyeliner is from Topshop). Blue and purple tinted eyebrows are becoming my thing.

You can easily see in these photos that I have quite an obvious lazy eye going on. I have always had a little bit of an uneven-ness but it get worse when I'm tired- and I have been EXHAUSTED these last few weeks. A mixture of work (hours and stress), and a cyst on my ovary has been playing up massively (just burst already) leaving me a bit fatigued; I've been dressing for comfort as soon as I get home to unwind. I don't really mind having an unsymmetrical face but knowing that I can prevent it is annoying to say the least. I need a holiday.

  15. Oh wow, you're so lucky that your grandmother knitted you such a gorgeous jumper, it's pretty much perfect! I've never quite managed to find the 'perfect' oversized jumper, but this one suits you so well and I love the way you've styled it :)
    I do hope you're not self-conscious about your eye, I honestly don't think I'd have noticed anything if you hadn't said it - and your brows look awesome! xx
