Hey everyone!

I'm sticking to my comfy clothes this week, as British Summertime seems to have officially finished. It has rained almost everyday this week, so to cure my boredom, I've dug out the old Playstation and have been playing a mixture of old school games such as Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon and Tony Hawk Pro Skater... three of the greatest playstation games ever if you ask me, so many childhood memories! Take me back to the days when it was more important to complete the next level, or collect all the hidden crystals, rather than completing several reports for uni or meeting coursework deadlines... Blehhhhh.  

I love my tartan shirt from Topshop that I picked up in a charity shop a few years back. It's always been a great piece to throw over a basic outfit to add some colour and slight grunge edge. I'm also wearing my new shiny shoes from Topshop. I usually hate it when people wear fancy shoes and no socks (minus ballet pumps) , but I was tempted to give it a go for this outfit, and I think it works quite nicely, also allowing you guys to see all shoe detail - pretty!

Anyways, must go, Crash Bandicoot calls...

More soon, 

Helen
