Wait...no colour?!

12 July 2009

I have been carrying around my sisters Snoopy thermos for the entire week. I've been ill but it was definitely NOT swine flu in case you all ask! Though having said that, the midland area of the UK has now become a hot spot for the virus. Oh Joys.
Thankfully after the doctor put me on a strong course of antibiotics I am pretty much all better and today I actually have an up to date outfit photo for you guys! I was experimenting with more neutral colours seeing as it's a look I rarely attempt. So looky here, almost no black at all and there are definitely no leggings (which I know I seem to live in) It's also way easier to wear neutrals than to go all black. I've come to the conclusion that wearing entirely black just doesn't work for me. Oh and yes as you can see, I kept those shoes. They are super comfy.

I attempted to make a cherry crumble today. I cheated with the custard but I need to work on the recipe. My family still cleared their bowls so it can't have been all that bad... More cooking planned for the week with more cupcakes on the agenda at some point. I plan to make some Bento during the week! See Yvonne's Blog for her version! It looks awesome! Ahhh can't wait.

  16. hot damn the cherry crumble looks and sounds good. what's that syrupy stuff? icecream? I wanted to have ice cream with brownies for the longest time, and yesterday went to check the ice cream prices and they were all like 6-7 dollars. Kerazy.

    i cannot wait to see ur bentooooo.... this is so fun cooking the same thing and then comparing and contrasting. I'm glad ur into cooking/food.

    I love the simple neutrals themeee. omg even the cherry crumble fits into that theme!!! lol how did u plan that so perfectly. It's neutral on the outside and colorful and flavorful on the inside. ;) wink wink.

  42. Haha thanks for your comment! That's exactly what I do! I currently have some tapered trousers and that lace top on my blog on hold, and am desperately trying to sell stuff so that all my wages aren't cancelled out by my purchases! It's impossible to have a shopping ban working there! Mmmm yummy post, so many bloggers are baking at the moment. My Mum banned me as I ruined the last cake I made :(

  43. Sorry to hear you've been ill! It's definitely going around at the moment. I'm living in slight curiosity of swine flu, wolverhampton's got it a alot more than is public knowledge, I know a guy who works at the NHS. Fun times!

    Your dress is so pretty, I love illustrated people, all their designs are so amazing.

    God I need to buy some new clothes, I'm having withdrawal. I saw this lace bodice, I reeeaally want it, what do you think? I reckon it would be cool layered under other lace tops http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=19551&storeId=12556&categoryId=152529&parent_category_rn=58908&productId=1292166&langId=-1&cmpid=sn_wk46a
