So on a totally vain & shallow note (hey, at least I'm honest!) I FINALLY, FINALLY got my Alex Monroe Baby Bee necklace yesterday. And I am totally in love with "him". Anyone that knows me will be sick of hearing about said necklace. I fell in love with it when I first saw it being worn by Lesley Sharp's character on "Scott and Bailey" last year. When the second series started again in March, I decided that I *had* to have one. So I've spent the last 3mths saving up (not so) patiently. To rub it in, every celebrity worth their salt seems to be wearing Alex Monroe in some form recently! I don't usually wear gold, but I thought it looked better & as he's an investment, is classier. I love how unusual & quirky the bee is, whilst still understated and dainty. I love it!
Now I'm debating how certifiable naming a necklace is...?!
Enjoying this sudden outbreak of good weather. (In July. Who knew?!) Legs fake tanned, 50s style sundresses & skirts out quickly- I don't trust it to last, therefore am making the most of it!
My TV shows of choice at the min are definitely full on girlie guilty pleasures. Am catching up on Pretty Little Liars season 1 (would kill for Spencer's wardrobe!) & totally addicted to Revenge. Have loved Ashley Madekwe for years, so am glad she is doing so well- regularly crush on her featured outfits & it was her Ring My Bell blog that inspired this one. Love the clothes envy, glamour, intrigue & pure escapism of both shows.
Also, been totally obsessed with Fifty Shades. Not been so into a book since Twilight. Sebastian Stan or Armie Hammer are my choice Christians, with the wonderful Troian Bellisario or Emilia Clarke as Ana. And have just started recording Maison Close. As the girl well at ease with reading Secret Diary in public years ago (and being chastised for "brandishing that smut!"), I welcome this sexual revolution!!
Having a poppy, feelgood soundtrack to my summer: Fun, Ok Go & Foster The People. Oh, and The Dark Knight Rises OST. (Not so poppy!)
No mani news as my nails are still a bit shot from the Coldplay nail wraps. They may have looked fab, but they've left my nails brittle and breaking so they are still uber-short and being given serious TLC daily! I don't like my nails being in bad condition :(
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Abby :D
