I recently had a “weekend of awesome” with a few of my best friends. It really WAS awesome! We did crossbow training (I had pretty decent aim though hurt my hand, idiot), played tennis appallingly, falconry, faffed about in a giant spa for hours and hours, and took lots of walks in the beautiful countryside with birds and squirrels and swans, yay. Though my favourite was the 2am walk back to our chalet with about a zillion bunnies! Anyway, yes, awesome indeed.
One of our crew couldn’t make it, so this week we had a day of awesome instead where we went to London Ink and I am booked in for an omg 4realz tattoo later this month, for which I am both excited and terrified. It’s Wizard of Oz themed, since the film’s been a love of mine since the age of about 4. Ahh! After nommy Thai food, we then went to a preview showing of the new Kevin Cummings exhibition of Joy Division photos at Proud Camden. Most of the photos are well known but there were a few I’d not seen before. Some of the ones of Ian Curtis look SO much like my stepdad when he was younger, it scares me! Having found one of the closed off stables for a sit down Jayne took a few outfit photos on the platform, with a classy as hell lap dancing pole behind. Woo?

After seeing Alegra and Letilor in the cream and black versions of this dress, I thought I’d complete the set by getting the orange version, haha. Seriously though, it’s the kind of dress I know will get a lot of wear this autumn – it’s warm, fits like a dream and looks stylish and proper even though it’s really comfortable. Also you may have seen the floral satchel before – Rosie has one! There were various colours available but the red was by far the best. I’m completely in love with it – big enough to hold my essentials as well as the random crap I like to carry around everywhere. As for my boots, I can’t live without them. I recently got them re-heeled and soled rather than buy a new pair!
After the unfortunate posing, we headed down to see The Get Up Kids. Am trying to finish my review for Qro as we speak. It’s mostly just me reminiscing about when I was 15 and I thought I was soooooooo cool for listening to songs by emo, screamo and hardcore bands from America off Napster. Get Up Kids were brilliant, of course. In fact, you could say they were… awesome. Har de har.
