Just making and fixing things.

Hello chums,

Firstly, hope you guys have had an awesome week (: You must must must forgive us for the lack of posts this week. WE HAVE NOT ABANDONED YOU! Plus we have ample reason... WE GOT ZE GSCE RESULTS YESTERDAY !!!!!! We're so "hkahbvsnc" and happy with the outcome, we hope and pray that those who collected GCSE's are as proud of yourselves as we are *synchronized scary grins*

Right on with today's post...
I think my style is quite London Girl,with a massive dose of the 60's. And I tried to channel that through this outfit post. To be quite fair, it's a lazy outfit, not really deserving more than an appreciative nod. But that's because I really wanted the jumper to be the focus. It's something I made through the summer to build up my wardrobe for sixth form (argghhhhh!!!). It says, Insouciant which means care-free and unconcerned, which I really need to be as I am such a STRESS HEAD. Oh yeah, and when I say I made it, I mean my beloved nana sat adjacent to my hip, insisting that she "fixes a few things".I am sooo not a perfectionist.



Friends I must also share with you what I discovered whilst cleaning out my jewellery box. Yonks ago, I broke my fave River Island necklace (oh how I love the RI sale). It was one of those 'un-fixable' breaks because the actual chain had snapped. But then I was thinking, what could I do with it as their was NO WAY I was just chucking it away and admitting defeat. I found my answer in the form of a lonely earring (it's lonely because I lost the other one).

Step 1: stick the lonely earring into the hole of the chain.

Step 2: Secure it by putting the butterfly back at the end of the earring

Step 3: Use the hook and put it through the butterfly back.


And juuuuuust to show you it works ...
Any comments and feedback would be appreciated, thanks for bothering to read though, I know I waffle :P.

  14. Following you back, really, really, really love your blog!! It´s very nice and wellcoming!! And I´m glad my spanish is helping you! hahahah

    And I´m gonna use your trick right now because one of my necklaces broke last week... I put a safety pin because that´s my solution to everything, but I´m pretty sure your idea will work better!

    This week we´re going to Madrid Fashion Week and we´ll be telling everything that happens there in our blog, starting this friday! It´s gonna be madness!! You can check our blog to see what happens besides the runway shows at a fashion week!!

    kisses!! Have a great week!

  18. Oh wow! I never would have thought of that earring thing before! I usually just use a safety pin when that happens to me... your solution is much classier. ;D
