Hey Babydoll.



T-Shirt - French Connection
Cardigan - American Apparel
Snood - Topshop
Skirt - American Apparel
Tights - Topshop
Shoes - Urban Outfitters

As you can probably tell I'm a bit of a geek. I loved the film Kick Ass so when I saw this t-shirt in French Connection I knew I had to have it. It even came with a little booklet about the film which I thought was a nice touch.

I wore this for a walk around the shops in Leeds. I really wanted to get my eyebrows threaded as everyone says how good it is. I went to Harvey Nicks first but there wasn't anyone at the threading stand plus it was £24! So I had a look at the one in Debenhams but the woman there looked like she wasn't doing a very good job so I just came home and plucked them myself as per usual.

I also went on a hunt for some nice shorts. I saw the most amazing leather shorts in H&M but they only had a size 16 left, boo! I went to River Island as I saw some nicer but more expensive ones on their website. Couldn't see them instore so I tried these instead. They're so lovely and made my waist & legs look so skinny! Unfortunately they made my hips look wide and my bum look flat. I'm still undecided so I may go back for them but I think I would prefer some leather ones. Has anyone seen any nice ones that aren't too expensive recently? Let me knowww!

  6. I love that tshirt! I bought Kick Ass on DVD last week and I can tell I'm going to be watching it over and over. Just as good the second time as it was in the cinema.
    Threading should definitely not cost £24!! How can they get away with charging that! I had my eyebrows threaded in Debenhams once, and I liked how quick and neat it was, but I felt like the woman doing it kind of ignored my natural eyebrow shape and did what she wanted to do, so they came out a bit too thin. If you find someone who does it well though it's worth it, but I wouldn't pay more than about £8.

  14. Shorts wise, I bought the river island high waisted black leather ones, LOVE THEM! Although they came up HUGE, I bought a 10 thinking would fit perfectly, but they were more like a large 12 or even 14, could fit my fist width in at the waist! Just hung off me and looked terrible. So sent them back and waiting for refund and going to buy smaller and hope they fit better! None of the stores near me have them in and they wouldn't order them in for me either, annoying!! x
