hold me closer tiny dancer

And I'm back. 
For the last two thousand and twelve weeks I'm been scampering between home and school with a constant look of torment and anxiety on my face. My brain has been submerged by the definitions of mens rea and actus reus, historiography and film noir and legions of other facts that, as of yesterday, I will never need to know again! Yes, I had EXAMS! And they're over! .. Until November ...

Exam time has got to be one of the most unfashionable times of the year. I spent my time in black leggings, jumpers and maybe the occasional pair of blue jeans. 

Now that they are over I can finally do the things I just didn't whilst in my state of living-deadosity. I plan on painting my nails dark red and staying up until the wee hours watching the box sets (How I Met Your Mother & The Office FTW) and movies my sister hopefully brings home from overseas today!
Anyhoo, here's a picture of Anna Brewster who appears to have acquired blue hair.  
 love the chain gang & funkay grandma hair
Anna is from the sensational but short lived British TV show Nearly Famous, (no relation to the brilliance that is Almost Famous)
She starred opposite Aaron Johnson,(the 'sex god' from Angus,Thongs) and Talulah Riley (St Trinians and The Boat that Rocked) 
All of which are movies and TV shows I adore.. 

Hey look, it's Alexa Chung. Why are most of the things I ever talk about British?
I love these Jeffrey Campbell sandals Alexa is wearing and theBarbara Hulanicki for Topshop dress is brilliant!
Leopold spots & Penny Lane,
