SALES

Online shopping is already my downfall but this Christmas I discovered the joy of online shopping on my iphone. Bus journeys will never be the same again. This beaut is on its way to me now, I don't know why TS thought they could sell C.Kane at such ridic prices in the first place..

HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Blogging with a personal cheeseboard next to me and a generous glass of Baileys. Tomorrow normal eating (and life!) recommences, until then... Happy Christmas!

SWISH

I went to a Swishing** event the other week (**this is a well known term for clothes swapping apparentely. I must be the only person who had to google this). I'm not going to lie the clothes were a bit rubbish. I took 5 nice things with me and could only find one thing to swap in return, but the bar was free and the cupcakes were good and I got free tampax. Not complaining. Posts have been sporadic since I've sold my soul to the many bars of London in an effort to get in the festive spirit. I'll be better after Christmas, promise.

WEDGES



I have convinced myself that these are the only shoes that will stop me pining for leopard print Surface to Air's (and at £65 vs. Surface to Air's £245 probably the closest I will ever come, let's be honest). Somehow I completely missed these online and they only have two sizes left in store - neither of them mine. Woe!

Updating from the apple store in Westfield from a test iPhone. Thought I should give this thing a try since I have one arriving at my house on thursday and i'm stuck with it for the next two years.

In other news posts will be sporadic until my laptop gets fixed. I saw the blue screen of death this morning and I haven't been able to do anything with it since.

Exciting event to go to on weds hopefully I will have found a way to update by then. TTFN ha I've just worked out caps lock what a loser

MONKI

The animations on the Monki site freak me out a little bit. I'm not sure if they're scary or amazing.

WHATEVER YOU LIKE

I'm actually obsessed with this song since the amazing threesome episode of Gossip Girl. I love that she didn't change any of the original lyrics



And the original FYT It's kind of hilarious

ABBEY LEE

I'm still alive! I just got a little busy with Real Life. I do have plans for this blog, though I have gone off the layout somewhat. Hmmm. Working on a blog related project at work and signing in and out of different blogspot/twitter/photobucket accounts is tiresome not to mention I can't decide which content/ideas to put where. For now, I have a reason to buy D&C this month, I've been put off it lately, but I can't resist an Abbey editorial.



Outfit posts to come soon I think.

A MOMENT OF GRACE

"That was a stroke of genius on my side I think. I turned the cameras on you. And it just came to me, like I was walking along the corridor and I was like 'oh my god they're looking at my rack again, I can't'...Hang on a minute. I'll teach them"
Grace Codddington in The September Issue



I watched The September Issue again this evening and it's true what everyone has said, Grace Coddington really is the star of the show. I love her and her work!

INK

I've been watching reruns of Miami Ink all weekend and I can't stop looking at pictures of Tasha and Josh. I know a colour tattoo would never suit me but I love them on other people.

MCQUEEN



Did anyone actually manage to watch the show on the live stream? It looks absolutely breathtaking. I can't imagine what it would have been like to actually be in the room.

Apparentely we will be able to watch on demand in the next hour or so here http://alexandermcqueenlive.showstudio.com/ but for now we just have to make do with some amazing images.

ANNA & ALEXA

This image has been doing the rounds and I did laugh at some of the captions. Body language appears to say it all...



That was until I saw the shots that didn't make the tabloids..



I haven't watched The September Issue in full, but even so I decline to believe that Anna Wintour is that much of a snob that she would publically snub someone she doesn't even know (not to mention she is the editor of Vogue for gods sake, surely she cannot be that out of touch that she hasn't heard of Bob Geldof and by association his daughter?? Surely!)

LABELS I LOVE

I’ve posted about SHAKUHACHI before having coveted various things on pixiemarket.com. But I’ve just discovered mycatwalk.com.au where their SS09 range has just been made available for pre order. 6 weeks into the shopping ban and not a single item of clothing purchased, I might have to treat myself to one of these numbers. I’m a sucker for a cut out or a mesh/solid mix.



Studded Jacket will be even harder to resist!
