jumpsuit sailors

I was  ever so productive today

like seriously I have never seen so much productivity ever.

it was mind blowing

here are the products of my labors

eve being productive = 2 hours spent making blue tack rabbits

see I made the first one, but he said he was lonely.

And I do not think it is right or physically possible to make little blue-tack rabbits cry

so I made him a brother.

and that was my day.

te he 

I despise exams. I hate their very essence and wish to banish them to some far off tundra of loneliness

urg, but there is a light on the horizon

my birthday

yep the 1st of May is in sight 

and thus I made a list 

1. Johann Animal Button Playsuit - £50 - Urban Outfitters
My mum says that I look good in pastels and pales hues. Probably because I'm a deathly irish pale, actually almost lavender, so bright colours wash me out. I don't know why but I really love the print of the lower half, I don't have much beige in my wardrobe (I organized it into a rainbow the other day) so this will make a lovely addition. Also it will go well with my clogs, which is a must.

2. Kimchi & Blue Tipped Wrap Front Playsuit - £48 - Urban Outfitters

I love playsuits. I don't know why but they make me look taller especially with heels, so this is perfect, espcially with nautical making a come back. I do love nautical, though not ancors. I like it when it's almost preppy. Well I do adit that I took the next step and changed my facebook language to pirate. Te he, ahoy me harties.  

3. Button Detail Bodysuit - £18 - Asos

I feel like getting a bodysuit. Though my mam said wear it at your peril. Mainly due to the fact that it is almost impossible to go to the toilet, in a dignified manner.  Though this 0ne is sweet, the blue suits me, and also is in size 6, I swear after asos's sale like everything is gone in my size! Though this lovely was kind to me, thankyou body suit for tailoring to my size, thankyou. Oo and a body suit will mean that I won't have any problem's with having to tuck it in constantly. I rejoice :D

4. '80's Fabulous Belt - £18 - Urban Outfitters
I basically decided to get my whole list from the Urban Outfitters site, before hand it was entirely from K Shoppers and Yes Style, but I'm now out of the shipping time. I do have a penchant for decked out belts, as they do so wonderfully tie together an outfit. This one works fantastically, with it's chain detail, so fancy. Te he, though I might have to punch some more holes in it, I've become quite skilled at it, using all my mum old surgical tools, I feel like I could be in Grey's Anatomy.

5. Metal Clip Frame Box Bag - £15 - Asos
Oh I do love my bags, the shape of this one is gorgeous, and the stextured finish is lovely, like insect skin, almost but not quite. I could fit my purse and oyster card in quite snugly. Lovely, and it has a clasp too, ooo goody. And its very slim and neat, that is a needed quality in a bag.

6. Nude Lace Gloves - £4 - Asos
I saw these delights, and just had to ask for them, they're lovely. The nude colour is lovely, and the lace pattern is different to anything else I have. Though hopefully they'll fit. I have builders hands, so that means I have very stubby fingers, they're disgusting, so these little angels should cover my fat sausages right up in their lacy love.

the total being £153 hopefully I might get some of them. My dad seems quite set on convincing me to get a camera, but I might dabble into my savings for that, I do have my eye on a panasonic lumix, as it is ever so small and cute. 

I went to the Grace Kelly Exhibition yesterday. She is my favorite actress and my ultimate style icon. So you can guess I was bubbling with excitement, clutching my  hermes style bag, complete in sun dress and stockings, channeling as much Kelly as I could. Until we got up the desk to pay for tickets, and they put up a sign saying 'Grace Kelly is sold out'


I could have cried.

So to quench my fashion needs, I sat by the Alexander McQueen case, wondering how if I was a master thief, I might swoop into it's glass perimeter and steal is insectine delightfulness

She is too beautiful. Oh I think I need to go watch 'Rear Window' again.

well after I've been to Wagamama's with my yaya

sadly I think it may end in being thoroughly embarrassed by my brother playing 'Charlie the Unicorn' at full volume and trying to catch people with his tongue.

    frol·icked, frol·ick·ing, frol·ics

    There is a man outside my window with a blowtorch

    should I be alarmed?

    yes, yes indeed

    summer is almost here. 

    Like actually near, as in I had to wear sun-cream today. 

    Factor 50 of course, if you want to be pale you have to prepared to get sticky

    And also Irish, which helps  greatly.

    So seeing as my sister is on the other side of the planet, instead of act mopey, we went up to London

    And instead of going Brick Lane or Portobello or Oxford Street 

    We went to Marylebone

    And walked out of the station to be swept into a testorterone filled sea of blue clad Chelsea fans.

    Gosh, I though I was going to be eaten by those footie chanting men

    it was literally like a choir of dinosaurs.

    Narrowly avoiding being devoured I naturally directed my family in the wrong direction.

    And ended up in front of a church

    Now this is the point where I say I was wearing a jumper and a knee length skirt, modest.

    haha, yes right. Well actually I was wearing a khaki body con skirt, a cream lace vest and a vinatge bolero.

    A dressed down salute to my sister former modelling days, yep still thinking of you, you lucky skiing git.

    So we passed into an alley beside the church and into the most adorable little market.

    The Cabbage and Frocks Market to be precise

    my face is so hideous it gone and pixilated. Thankyou mum's phone, thankyou

    emerald bolero vintage 
    elephant broch vintage and then futher cumstomisation
    lace vest primark - £3
    brown buckle belt sisters
    khaki body con skirt topshop - £25
    white socks
    pilmsoles L.K.Bennet
    peacock print bag Paul's Boutique

    How awesome was this little market? Vintage beauties, Handmade delights, and a selection of High Fashion stars (*cough* Chanel *cough, cough*)
    It was like a divine apparition. 

    Sadly moving on we  found Marylebone's high street, which was wow

    even the charity shops had Jimmy Choos.
    I was in heaven. 

    Until my delightful dream ended and I was back in bustling London. 

    yep the Tweed Run in all its glory. 

    I'm hoping to do it next year, as its on my 101 things to do before I die. 

    right next to swiming in a bioluminescent lagoon. 

    for real.

     okay so I got my allowance on monday, and I had a little left over from easter, basically £20 burning a hole in my pocket

    so I spent it naturally on this summer frock

    I feel like frolicking around in this and drink cranberry tea.

    okay so it's a definite now.

    summer is a'coming

    I have offically lived 19.2% of my life and will die when I am 80

    It's true, my dad told me so

    He also told my brother that he would die when he was 75 in the same year as me

    To which my brother started to cry.

    And simply said 

    'I know why'

    And sulked off, motioning a cigarette to his lips

    And such is the life of the Archer family on easter Sunday.

    Okay so apart from being told I will die in 24,583 days my life is pretty damn fantastic

    do you know why?

    Because my sisters presence will be leaving our household tomorrow

    to go to Boston

    leaving me with 8 blissful days of silence. 

    only 25 hours left

    Hellz YEAH.

    so to celebrate I painted my nails


    See it's the American Flag. In a nail polish form

    I love holidays

    especially when your feet are attached to a pair of the most beautiful shoes in the world




    and have literally not left my feet. I did actually sleep in them yesterday

    te he

    see there they are on my feet. Glowing with awesomeness

    That was my outfit to GK's 16th. 

    I was a Seadragon

    Well actually a seadragon who's bestriend is a seahorse, who's husband is preganant.

    But just saying a Seadragon is less of a mouthful.

    I made my outfit too, and I litearally put my blood sweat and tears into it.

    Well I burnt my fingers and sewed into them a few times

    Put on my deoderant whilst I was in the dress so it went all over the place 

    And then shoved my finger in my eye and cryed all over it.


    Actually it was very, very fun

    Amazing actually.

    So to continue the high I was on, I decided to go up to Brick Lane to go to the American Apperal Rummage Sale.

    But some idiots decided that they didn't  like to queue anymore.

    God Sake, we're in bloody England! Queueing is the only thing we're actually good at!

    So I go up there, get soaked and then find out its shut.

    Big Frickin' Pigs!

    But thankfully all the other shops were having their price reductions and sample sales, so I got to run from shop to shop looking at all the vinatge goodies.

    And I found in Traffic People they were having a 3 for £20 sale on everything. 

    So I perchased these lovelies

    Oo Oo For anyone who wants to ask me any questions, I now have a formspring account 
    go on ask me anything, it could be the most randomest of questions like, how do you cut your sandwiches, or have you ever seen a floating skull
    well maybe not the last one, it would lead to the explanation of a very strange story
    te he tummy tums
