Daydreaming, ignoring the books...
After lots of daydreaming, I have decided to start a weekly feature, inspired by my favourite sneaky secret read the Times Sunday Style section, which has a hilarious weekly list of what is currently ‘Going Up’ and ‘Going Down’ and over which I chuckle and guffaw over such unfathomable assertions that this week ‘back cleavage’ is in but ‘frilly ankle socks’ are out.

Here’s my current list for this week. Enjoy! πŸ™‚


…Going UP…
Make do and Mend Trend!
Because when you’re a student and you’re obsessed by clothes and then your grandma hands you down a sewing machine… well a cashmere polo-neck which was completely coming apart at the neck seams is salvageable! And since I’m really into buying from charity shops, it pays to make a stitch in time…

Katie Melua: Whose songs are a mix of surreal, angry and inspiring! I especially love ‘Tiny Alien‘, a very sweet song that makes me smile.
Diana // retro cameras!! My brother and I have our hearts set on some sort of retro camera from the lomography range – not only that, but we want the full works: fish eye macro and wide angle lens, flash, 35mm back, filters, etc…

Thought this version is so beautiful that I’d be tempted to settle on this, just for its looks…

House Hunting

Well wouldn’t you fall in love if the bathroom looked like this?! I’ll just live in that little curtained space above the airing cupboard please !! πŸ™‚

Β 
Bakerella’s Cheesecake bars! Mmmmm I’m absolutely desperate to make these. So much so in fact, that I ran to the local Londis in time, 2 mins before it closed, last night to get the ingredients to make it. Unfortunately, Londis failed me and lacked cream cheese (we only have the Philadelphia with chives version at home, which I thought might give it an odd aftertaste…)
Cheesecake is my absolute favourite pudding, so I will certainly be giving these a go this week!

…Going DOWN…

Exam revision, when the sun is shining! Unfortunately I’m putting off the inevitable at the moment. I’m enjoying my creative projects so much!
Distracting me particularly: Bourton-on-the-Water in the sunshine… πŸ™‚


Inner critics. Time to upset that board meeting of critical dragons in my head! And put self-esteem in charge of the minute-taking…

Sneezing. I just spend the entire time at home sneezing. I seem to be allergic to my bedroom!! But back to uni today πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoyed my list! πŸ™‚
