this is today's outfit. i really don't have much else to update on, i have essays and no money, and therefore not a great deal of shopping has occurred. perhaps after christmas one's bank account will be replenished...

i've been rather busy at university getting drunk, writing essays and generally having an excellent time. but here are some tidbits for you all, in case you're still around :)
american apparel very briefly did this in forest, which is the colour i desperately wanted; however it sold out in record time. by the time i got to it there were only XS and S sizes left, and i'm a L in AA most of the time. i'm tempted by this blue - i'm attempting more brightness in my life.
i got this for £1 in a charity shop in falmouth; the charity shops here are absolutely incredible! there's so much houndstooth and tweed and suede and velvet it's making me cry with happiness.
l-r; skull ring, miss selfridge. blue stone ring, topshop. black sapphire and diamond ring, thailand. silver cross ring, urban outfitters. rust stone ring, my mama bought somewhere.

i've been incredibly busy lately. my results, seeing everybody before we go off to different universities, and the fact that there are builders tearing my room and bathroom apart. a few things.
- i got A*AB and will be going to exeter to read english.
- i have not gained or lost a significant amount of weight, just slightly tanner.
- i have been doing a lot of shopping, in both hong kong and england.
- i have now started watching jersey shore and cannot stay away from it. it makes me laugh so hard i cry a little.
in others news, i have new purchases from yesterday. in my hunt for a chunky black jumper/shawl type thing, i ended up purchasing a variety of other items. there's no place in my house i can take pictures with decent light due to the builders, so you'll have to live with stock photos.
this is the double u-neck dress that i already have in black, but this is sea blue. the model is posing in a seriously unattractive way, as she looks a little preggo. and she looks normal in the next one!
same dress, but in navy. however, i forgot that i bought one like this from h&m, so i will be exchanging in for the same one, in truffle.
this is truffle, which i adore. i don't have much of this kind of colour in my wardrobe, so i thought it'd be a nice addition. and it suits me - some colours are so gorgeous but they look terribly unflattering on my skintone/physique.
i've wanted this for ages but i never got round to buying it due to lack of $$. this is the baby rib dress, and even though it's one-size it fits me perfectly so i'm really happy with it. i look like a chinese morticia addams. which is basically all i ever want to look like.
it looks more of a very dark olive green, but this is a black chunky knit scarf from zara - it's super warm, and really basic with no fiddly sparkly bits.
american apparel are currently doing a 'back to school discount'; when you spend £50, you get £5 off, when you spend £100, you get £15 off, and when you spend £150 you get £30 off. i spent £104 so only paid £86.99. i was quite pleased with this.
spent the rest of the day with george, where i read david nicholls' One Day, then went to the last showing at the cinema around 11 o'clock. i actually cried in the cinema, which has only ever happened twice before. during harry potter <3
that's all i've got time for today, and again i'm sorry for being so absent. for anyone still reading this :)

SO I'VE BEEN RATHER ABSENT; i apologise profusely. i left my camera upload cable at papa c's house so am relying on other people's photos of me for this photo post. extremely tired, and extremely brown but quite happy. and the weather is incredible, if not a little too hot. all i can bear to do is lie by the pool and sweat it out. i'll be working next week so there'll be a distinct lack of opportunity to go out and get hammered, etc, so i am taking advantage of my last week.
looking pretty local getting my lemon tea onnn with andrett.
at cheung chau beach getting extremely extremely brown with chien wei and louise. the twins look a little odd in this photo, excuseeeee me.
same day at night, went to fly where they have these awesome swings by the entrance. chien wei's working here so we were showing moral support/getting ladies' night free dranks
carnegies one night, getting the bar dance on. ver ver ver drunk hence the ENORMOUS smiling
another night at fly, i look a little like a hunchback but it's a nice photo
some peculiar doorway in korea that i wanted to be like narnia. shortly after this photo was taken i stepped through the doorway and saw aslan.
okay i'm kidding, i actually managed to trip over the little step because i'm just graceful like that.
an adorable monkey at the safari park we went to, who everybody insisted looked like me. i insisted that he wasn't reading a book or sulking and therefore looked nothing like me. then he started scratching himself all over and i was forced to admit that we were indeed human/monkey doppelgangers
me and mama c getting all korean-ed up. i know it looks like i'm pregnant what with the position of my hands and everything but i'm not, trust me. there's been no coitus.
well that's basically what i've been doing. except i have no photos of myself at the pool because i'd look pretty damn odd taking photos of myself while i'm alone...

new dressssses, £20 for three. they're from h&m but they're pretty similar to the AA u-neck, just without the back dip. i'm verrrr happy. although i wish they had grey, green or a lighter blue. they do black as well, but i already have my AA one.
sorry for being kind of absent, i've been rushing around doing a lot of stuff, and also going out a lot... i actually have a birthday thing today so this is a really quick post.

floral playsuit/romper, h&m. this is a sort of unflattering picture, but i'm too tired to put it on and take more.
what i wore yesterday to go shopping. then to the club for sunbathing and samosas for dinner
wednesday nights wanchai - ladies night, free champagne at carnegies.
thursday night LKF - ladies night, free cosmopolitans at 97
friday night wanchai - beer night at carnegies, $10 coronas. which translates to 80p.
saturday night wanchai - jager night at carnegies - $10 shots, $30 bombs.
this is where my liver goes to die. also, i bumped into a bunch of people from high school, and one of them, mahira, was telling me that on wednesdays there's a place where you go in and drink beer, but you can't pee or leave otherwise you have to pay or something along those lines. sounded delightful.
gonna have lunch with my grandpa and cousin vera today. i love dimsum.

this is going to be mostly image-based, as a warning.
so last night as i was waiting for justin to turn up and have drinks with me i did a spot of shopping in wanchai's various cheap shoe shops and chain stores. i didn't photograph everything i bought; i bought two pairs of sheer patterned tights, lace pop socks, a black h&m skirt and underwear that i couldn't be bothered to take decent photos of...i'm lazy on holiday.
H&M olive green button-up top
H&M black shirt

papa cheung took me to page one and i got these three; i'm saving the stephen king for when i've finished reading all the books in my dad's house.
