A Leopard Doesn't Change Her Spots

No exam today and having spent most of my day at the desk wearing my favourite and comfy jersey trousers, I felt the momentous occasion that was heading to the gym warranted some proper clothes. I love my track pants as much as the next student, but there'd have to be a drastic wardrobe disaster for me to leave the flat in them. In that respect I hope I never change, superficial though it may be, I like to try and present if not my best, then at least a face that has had some effort put into it, to the world.

Martha Jeans, Topshop
T-shirt, ASOS
Cardigan, H&M
Necklace, Temporary Secretary
After the devastation of finding a hole in my favourite pinky/nude coloured H&M cardigan, I thought I'd have a quick look on their website and see if I could replace it. I thought I'd hit the jackpot when I saw this one, the colour was called beige pink, but on the picture it looked the right colour. It appears that it is in fact beige pink, but I decided to keep it anyway, as it's the kind of colour I am likely to wear, particularly with the plain basics I'm so fond of. What do you guys reckon? Good colour? Awful colour? A bit odd?

  Anyway... speaking of leopard, I had my first go at leopard nails over the weekend- I was feeling the need for a study break!

Base, Nails Inc x Diet Coke in Caramel with an unknown shimery colour over the top
Spots, OPI Alice in Wonderland in Mad Hatter
Accent, Models Own x WAH Nail Pen.
My left hand came out ok except for the little finger, which was a surprise to me as my hands are a bit shaky. The joy of leopard nails (or so I have found) is that actually they don't have to be super precise and so there's room for error (or shaky hands).

And on the topic of nails, can anyone recommend a reasonably priced top coat? Mine's almost run out and I could do with a new one.

Right, back to the books. Spanish tomorrow and there's plenty of room for improvement, but before I go I wanted to say HI to all the people following- those who have been here since the beginning and those of you who have come by more recently. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy.
