You may notice something a bit different about the blog today? I started working on a new blog design ages ago but finally got some time to finish the illustration and code the layout this week, and spent yesterday afternoon putting it up and doing a few final tweaks. What do you think of the new look? I've added some new pages too, like About and FAQ, so if there's anything you'd like to know or any questions you'd like answered, please get in touch! I also created a Facebook page for the blog, which you can find here. I will love you forever if you could give it a like!

I went shopping for new clothes earlier in the week, which I haven't done for months. I do love buying new clothes but I hate actually going shopping, anyone else?! Especially if it's busy and there are people everywhere and lots of queues. Yuck. I always start off really keen but half way through I get really bored and just want to sit down for a bit haha. On the way home, I met my flatmate at the Red Squirrel for a few drinks and some food which perked me up though. There was a powercut in the pub while we were there, had to eat our burgers by candlelight! The food was really nice though, would definitely recommend it if you're in Edinburgh! I got a few nice summery things while I was shopping but, typically, the sunny weather has disappeared and it's been pretty grey and horrible all week. Fingers crossed the sunny weather comes back soon so I can ditch the tights and jumpers again!

The rest of this week has mostly been spent trying (and failing) to sort out my life for after graduation and having duvet days at home with Netflix or a good book. I'm really enjoying having time to read novels again, which I can never really be bothered to do during term time. I started a Goodreads account here which will hopefully motivate me to finish books I've started and find new books to read. Let me know if you have an account too and we can be pals!

I'm going home to visit my parents tomorrow for a week or two which will be nice, looking forward to getting my meals cooked for me and such! I'm taking my grad ball dress with me so my mum can do few alterations to it. I'm way too useless with a needle and thread to attempt it myself!

Hope you all have a lovely long weekend, anyone got anything nice planned?

  1. Horatio Hog is hilarious! Strangest gum I've seen.

    I love new clothes, too, but I hate stores with huge crowds. On the flip side, I don't like stores with no one in them either. Then the store associates watch and repeatedly approach you.

    It's been grey and stormy here, too! x

  2. Love your new layout, it's so nice! Oooo I'm going to check out goodreads! x

  16. I actually LOVE this layout - it's different from a lot of blog layouts, easy to read and I can find what I'm looking for. (I'm a fusspot when it comes to how people arrange their sidebars!). My new layout is coming along very very very slowly - the footer was given me a headache until five minutes ago - totally feeling smug at my HTMl ninja skills right now!
