Brighton with Hillarys Blinds and Make Do and Trend

So you guys may know how much I like making stuff, and you may know how stressful my new job is and how little free time I have, so it'll be no surprise to hear that when an email popped into my inbox inviting me to a crafting event on my one free Saturday, I jumped at the chance!

8am Saturday morning, wearing something other than a suit for once (my brand new fluffy coat!), I jumped on a train and made my way to Brighton! I've never been to Brighton, and the little I did see of it before the event made me 100% sure that I will be going back after the Christmas shopping madness has subsided - it all seems so exciting and interesting!

Mustard has fast risen to one of my favourite colours to wear, but unfortunately, I own very few things in that shade! When I saw this kimono on Boohoo I knew I had to get it!

Jay took these photos for me whilst I was visiting him - I insisted he take some as I had to show you all the necklace!

Outfit of the day - Galaxy Converse

Fun fact: This is a scheduled post as today, July 15th 2014 is my 21st birthday AND my university graduation. I am now officially Helen Louise,  BSc, legal adult everywhere. Pow. [That is assuming everything went as planned - this is scheduled like I said, so everything might have gone horribly wrong. I'll guess we'll find out if I pop back up on the internet in a few days time...]

This is yet another Helen and Nina trip, this time on my last day in Cardiff. We went to the really cool garages we found and tracked down this one.

Galaxy Converse: Schuh
Satchel: Ollie & Nic
Top: Primark
