the harsh light of day ♥



The weather has been lovely for the past two days so I'm taking full advantage of wearing my black maxi dress. I say 'my' maxi dress but I actually stole it from my sister - she should be aware that she is never getting it back muhaha. I'm currently at my desk in Red typing away while I wait for the features team to select what news stories could be feature idea worthy. It is unreal how much I have learnt in terms of how a magazine is put together. Everything is thought out carefully and research is very important - I really admire the content that Red produces, even though it's aimed at a slightly older readership. I still find myself flicking through all their magazines at lunch - especially the food section ;) My plan for shopping tomorrow is still in order, I hope they have the skirt in stock! We all know with my luck though I'll end up having to glue pink bird feathers on a bin bag, sigh... I ran to Boots this morning and bought a big tub of vanilla flavoured Slim Fast - now I know it doesn't sound like a healthy idea but instead of me chomping down on four chocolate bars for lunch (with a sandwich and crisps) I'll have a slim fast and then a healthy dinner when I get home. Then I'll actually have to start exercising - great -_- I think we should all naturally have Adriana Lima's figure, I would wear underwear to work everyday if I did haha. Sounds like a good idea right?!

Today's outfit is nothing fancy, its just a plain black maxi dress from New Look (it's from last year), the cropped leather jacket is £30 from Vera Moda and the sandals were £9 from Primark. The second photo was me giving my brother a confused look because I didn't think he pressed the right button. I wrote the first half of this post at work and now I am back home and exhausted, I watched a few Criminal Mind episodes (of course) and now I'm going to exercise..I dont want to! I might start with some yoga, yoga counts right?! Oh before I forget, I got an email today about a competition - I just wanted to show you all the link so you can enter. http://www.layezee.co.uk/news/best-of-british-bedrooms-competition/ Basically if you post a picture of your bedroom you could win £100 worth of Zara vouchers - this probably means I'll have to clean my room... The deadline is the 22nd of June so get tidying! I'd like to thank Sara for telling me about this competition - she's well aware of how much Fairytale Kiss readers love Zara clothes ;) I'm off to exercise but let me know if you've bought any nice maxi dresses or if you're entering the Layezee competition! ♥
