Bourjous So Laque Ultra Shine Nail Enamel in Bleu Model

Why? I popped into Boots to collect a prescription, was looking for a green Bourjois eyeshadow, but this spoke to me instead. There were no ifs, no buts - I was buying this nail polish. My nails look glorious.

Miss Selfridge Slouchy Spot Jumper

Why? Because it is just so fluffy and spotty and slouchy and lovely. I am a bad person.

Miss Selfridge Grey Knit Sweat

Why? Because Durham will bypass summer and whilst yes, your new bikini is pretty, I am cold and need more jumpers.

Topshop Thin Cross Pendant

Why? Because I have no willpower.

Topshop Drawstring Cord Cross Necklace

Why? Because I love God.

Topshop Enamel Stone Band Rings

Why? Because recently, I have been really into wearing false nails - and as my hands are looking so good, why not decorate them accordingly?

Dress Up Topshop Sequin Prom Dress

Why? Because in a few weeks I am attending a family wedding and upstaging the bride in something sparkly is compulsory. I'm like a gypsy.

River Island Asymmetric Hem Vest

Why I realised a short while ago that I do not own a white vest as a result of deploring the cheap ribbed cotton that most are made from. This is chiffon and the keyhole detail at the back is cute.

River Island Cream Leopard Print Mini Skirt

Why? Again, alternatives to jeans. Love me some leopard print!

River Island Black and White Striped Shorts

Why? Fed up of wearing jeans, looking for alternatives. These shorts are pretty and can be worn during the day with opaque tights or at night, with bare legs and killer heels.

Rare Lace Hi Lo Hem Dress

Why? For the Halfway Hall - the ball at Durham Castle to celebrate the halfway point of my degree. Yes it is black and gothy, but that is why I like it.

The Great American Novel

Still on the theme of literature, I have come to realise how few of 'the greats' I have actually read. I've hardly touched Dickens or Austen and I can't really stomach Bronte. Why? Because I just don't get on well with the English greats. However, I do very much enjoy a good American read. So here, for personal use, is my to-read list of American classic novels, to add-to and cross-off in the, hopefully, near future.

  • Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

  • Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger

  • Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell

  • Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

  • The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

  • The Sun Also Rises by Earnest Hemingway

  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Recent Reading Haul

Books are something, like shoes, that I have no issue spending a lot of money on. Recently, having discovered some fabulous new authors and rekindled my romance with some lost favourites, I have been reading and therefore buying books a lot. Now, I am all for public libraries, but there is something alluring to me about owning literature. I aim to create a vibrant and varied personal library that I can treasure forever. These are my latest additions.

Yes, I am a massive John Green fan.
