A fashion that does not reach the streets of Paris is not a fashion.

It has been snowing for 4 days. Pretty much a week of none stop, icy cold, white dancing, silver glittering snow days.
This morning however the sun is shining and the 8 inches of snow surrounding me are beginning to melt. Usually i'd be sad, but being snowed in for 4 days is not fun. There is only so much enjoyment you can get out of this weather when you pass the age of 7...
Snowman, igloo, snowball fight, fire lit, The Holiday DVD and hot chocolate have all been checked about 5 times over (bar igloo maybe that one was more difficult than i thought!)
I was shocked to realise that being snowed in can actually become tedious. You can actually get angry at the snow!

Anyway, as it's Christmas EveEve, mum & dad have decided to go out for the first time in a couple of days, for lunch without me, which is really lovely. So what would any other girl do in these times of boredom and hopelessness - Visit
Lucky for us all they have a Spring Summer preview which has just shed some Parisian sunshine onto my day. Looks like we're turning to the fashions of France again next year. I am SO eager for some dark romance, stripes, ruffles, ladylike silk and baby pink. Who wouldn't want to look like Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl Queen) or be dressed by the woman herself, Coco Chanel.
With the dark cloud of modular exams looming, and with the exhaustive Christmas build up well, exhaused, the sneek peek of next season collections has got me sportively wired for next year and whatever it may bring.
Well that and the fact that i am hitting the sales on boxing day.

Final thought: Lanvin Lanvin Lanvin (pictures!)

At the cutting edge

I am at the cutting edge, just like the title of my (for loss of a better word) FAT A-Level Textiles textbook which i have been carrying around in my sporty Topshop leather slouch bag for the past 2 days and 10 lessons. Which, for those of you don't know, leads me to the fact that my 'free' or 'study periods' (as my school likes to call them) have been zero to none so far this week.
If you like me, have lept onto the educational discovery band wagon, that is 6th Form you will have noticed that there is never enough free periods in a week - in my case there is 2.
However with 2.5 days until Christmas holidays there is little reason for me to complain.
It is certainly Karma to blame, in my free periods so far I have visited the student library about twice - it is not my fault that Ms Snow-something-or-othermakes sure that you feel so self concious of whatever music might be leaking from your iPod earphones to the rest of the room because, yes, it is that quiet.
Luckily if you manage to blag yourself a lap-puter as i like to call them, the humming may just about cover it up. No more EsmeƩ Denters album for me. I'm always there too late, a bit like my Textiles revision.
Additionally, mum has immerced the Christmas tree in COLOURED lights so I am pulling an all nighter to rid them, it looks like a small child attacked it with neon paint.

1st rant absolutely over. Love to Robertfoxdavies who is, may I say, as cute as flavoured mini chedders, for launching me into the world of blog.
Just darling.
I WILL pass my textiles theory.
Final thought: How beautiful did my garden look this morning?
