Loving my pink cat hat from Oasap – it’s so kitschy I may die of happiness. Also got some gold rings – triangle, circle and square – which I adore but (typically) rub green off on my fingers. Have overcome this by painting them with clear nail varnish. Such a girl scout.
I got a collar as well: blue leopard print with spike studs. Yes. Yes it is good. Will post that when I can.
So busy right now kids, lots of roller coaster activity going on. Job, freelance, life in general – it’s just all mental.

Well guess what? My article about Royal Albartross on HOWL has led rather pleasantly to writing a few news stories here and there for the company.
If you didn’t see that piece, Royal Albartross make the most beautiful golf shoes in the world. Now, I’m not golfer. But these shoes are to die for whether you’re a sporty type or not.
Check out my latest piece for The Golf Wire, an American online publication.

Just informed my boss that I have today come to work as a Victorian Cyber Vampire, then got up to show him my shoes as if to illustrate that point for him more clearly. He didn’t disagree.

Yesterday my new Rookie roller skates from Surfdome arrived. I instantly put on a more appropriate outfit (fluffy purple tutu and bow tie), then cooked dinner wearing them which was dangerous but fun.
I had been trying to coerce my friend Andy into getting some skates so he can come out to play with me but Boyfriend accidentally let slip that HE used to be a bit of a devil on the dance floor at 90s roller discos, so I may in fact be forming a sort of roller CLUB in Haslemere town. And Haslemere is not ready for us.
Now, I loathe exercise but roller skating is FUN time. You have a hilarious laugh and also get somewhere (looking fabulous) while toning your bum, thighs and stomach muscles. What’s not to like? At the ripe old age of 23, I just do not care any more abut people looking at me.
I just want to have FUN.

Incredibly, this skirt is the perfect length for me. Every single maxi I’ve ever owned has required some clever hitching up or towering heels, as I am about the height of an Ewok. But THIS skirt is obviously designed for tiny little Asian girls, so it’s 100% perfect. Don’t worry if you’re normal though – this is literally brushing the ground on me (I’m five foot one) which is how I like it.
I like that the underskirt is separate from the netting because I often wear sheer skirts over a black mini skirt or gold dress, so it just gives me more options. I quite like the idea of the shiny green bit on its own but I think that may require further experimentation…
This skirt also comes in lilac, which I think would be VRAIMENT beautiful for the summer, and with lots of white and silver in the winter for melancholy moor wandering. With big chunky Dr Martens and a cable knit cardi. Mmmm.
You can see more of how I styled my new skirt on Chictopia.
