quicksand






shirt: new look | skirt: h&m | necklace: accessorize | ring: made by me | nails: dainty nails

My new tripod, which is probably the most confusing piece of equipment ever, finally arrived meaning I can replace the one belonging to my Great Grandad which was driving me crazy because I had to hold it together with a scarf to stop it collapsing! Hopefully this will mean I will post more outfits!

This is what I wore last night to a bloggers even held at Zen Lifestyle in Edinburgh. It was such a lovely night and was nice catching up with some of my favourite bloggers. I've got some photos and a little review of the treatment I had done coming up later in the week.

I think it's time to admit that my love affair with this skirt is over. It's a little too big for me (yet the size below was too small) and I'm constantly tugging at it to stop the zip sliding around to the back. It's just typical that I decide this only after the other leather skirt I wanted is out of stock in my size!

I'm also really excited to find out that Where Are My Knees?, the diet, healthy eating and exercise blog I run with four other bloggers, has been shortlisted for a Cosmo Blog Award within the health diet and fitness section! It would mean the world to me if you could vote for us in that category! I'll admit that I've not had much success with dieting and exercise so far but the other girls have worked so hard and some of their results are so amazing that I think they deserve some recognition!

  1. I want a leather skirt so bad! In fact I think I might buy one as a present to myself to spur me to lose weight after this baby is born!

  8. I broke my second tripod this week! ): I say "I" broke it, but I'm sure my Dad knocked it over when snooping in my room, so I'm gonna make him get me a new one! I adore your shirt Charlene, the colours are so lovely together. I love the necklace as well, little working details on jewellery always makes me happy (:
