Never ask for what oughta be offered.

- Winter's Bone (2010)

There is a chill in the air now! I defrosted ‘Mavis’  (- yes, I’ve named my car) this morning, and nearly cried while doing so. Don’t get me wrong; I like Winter… when I’m inside watching films with the fire blazing and a massive mug of tea - and a whole pack of custard creams. Other times, me and Winter do not get along. I will continue to dress inappropriately until such time as the Scottish snow forces me otherwise, today’s choice was a lovely flower pattern dress… but I layered a cosy jumper and paired it with leggings. 

jumper: charity shop     dress: new look     belt: ebay

I did also wear my ‘wonder-coat’, a beautiful burnt sienna number found for under £5 in Oxfam. I’ve left that in the car though, as I’m a smart cookie.

Speaking of cookies…

(Oaty) Snacktime made (and burnt) by my fair hands! I put berries on the side so I can pretend it’s healthy... 

This week I watched ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ with Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper. I wasn’t blown away, but there were a few giggles and is definitely worth a watch if you can catch it! Plus, boy is Mr. Cooper a tasty bit of eye candy…

(Tastier than these cookies, for sure. Back to the recipe book!)

I'm a sure thing.

- Pretty Woman (1990)

I’ve decided to start this blog as recently my graduate life seems to be significantly lacking in discipline and structure (It's 11pm on a Wednesday night, I'm watching Pretty Woman and stuffing my face with Chocolate Orange... I wish I had Julia Roberts' hair.) Also I’m incredibly nosey and love having a snoop around other people’s lives, in all honesty. 

So here goes nothing, welcome to my blog! (full of sporadic ramblings no doubt, bear with me!)
