The Spice of Life

Earlier this week, the awesome Nicole (Rosie match made us, and we're now Legal Buddies) and I were talking about my schedule and when she said that variety is the spice of life, it made me think, maybe I should try something new this week, to get me out of the pre-exam/pre-research project hand in rutt.

First.... A different type of outfit...

Shirt, H&M (Germany 2009)
Grey Vest (worn under), H&M (Spain 2010)
Leggings, H&M
Shoes, DIY (see HERE)
Glasses, Prada
H&M rediscovery/addiction, Models own.

I have seen other students wearing shirts/leggings as a combo, personally, it's something I would never usually put together. But.... spice of life they say, and you know what, it was the perfect combo for a bright and slightly breezey day at uni, and my youthful face means I could probably be mistaken for an undergrad... so nobody was judging.

What else have I done to spice things up around here this week? I popped my eyelash cherry. That's right, at (almost) 23 years of age, I've never used false eyelashes before, but for several reasons, now is the right time to change that. I picked up these from Bodycare for £2.99 which I gather is a good price for Eyelure and I've been reliably informed that Eyelure are good quality, so I should be able to reuse these?

I also joined the #fbloggers chat on Twitter this week. I've never joined the chat before because I'm not really a fashion blogger and felt a bit of a fraud when I've considered it in the past, but this week I happened to be free whilst it was running and I decided to give it a go anyway. I'm so glad I joined it, some great comments and some awesome new blogs/people to follow, as well as gaining a few new faces myself **WAVES IDIOTICALLY AT YOU ALL** Hi!

One last thing I did to mix it all up this week? I tried my hand to making Chloe Likes To Talk look a bit sleeker and a bit less scruffy. I know naff all about blog design, but the awesome tutorials from Girl Does Geek have been enough to help me make the small changes to CLTT that make it a bit more pleasing on the eye. What do you reckon folks? Liking the new look?

And now, back to my research project. Final editing of which needs to be done by Monday so it can be printed, bound and handed in on Tuesday! Then it's down to hardcore revision. JOY!

P.S. I'm also selling a few bits and pieces on eBay inc a Zara leopard print dress (worn only a handful of times) a Kate Moss for Topshop dress (worn once) as well as some DVD's, shoes and Spanish bits. Take a peek?

If I had legs like yours, I would wear shirts and leggings too but I always look stumpy in them!

Which is funny, because it always looks like you're taller than me (that said, it can be hard to tell on pictures). I only stand 5'5, and trust me, there are at least a dozen things you pull off that I so don't...

Lovely post :) and I love the long shirt & leggings look, it suits you! Good luck for the final editing! xx

Awwww love the new blog background! So cute! And in reply to your comment-YES 100% WORTH IT. I didn't buy it I won it because I was always sceptical about just how good it could actually be but I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out! xo

Thank you, really enjoying having a fresher look on the blog, your own redesign is looking pretty damn good too! 

And thanks for the heads up. Umming and Ahhing between NARS Sex Appeal and one of the new Mac Sailor ones...
