Eye See You.

As I grow older, I'm finding that I don't quite have a consistent style. Instead, I pick and chose and mix and match, sometimes I don't quite get it right, other times I do, but i've discovered that finding good investment pieces in basic colours like black and navy coupled with some stand out accessories, works really well, especially if you're a student like myself and your spending choice is between food or new clothes. Food always wins.

My everyday university winter wardrobe generally works along the lines of all black with a spattering of colour  via jewellery, hosiery, makeup or bags, today I did all four. Jess and Kayleigh at Sour Cherry were kind enough to send me this wicked cool "Eye See You" necklace from their A&E collection. I can't quite choose what i love the most about it. Between the chunky gold chain, the blue glitter and the fact that it was made by hand, i'm a little bit in love, plus the compliments i've had whilst wearing it are hilarious, whispering eye jokes galore ha!

In less glittery news, my dissertation draft is in on Monday so i'm currently losing a serious battle with sleep and making BFF's with the library ugh! Oh, the winner of my giveaway has been announced on twitter! I'm off to get a bit of evening shut eye before tackling the rest of my diss! Hope you all have an awesome weekend!
