A Wonderful Day...

Well, this has been such a good day!
The weather picked up a fair bit from being snowy and cold, so I figured it was high time for a trip into Exeter, since I haven't been for some time! So I got up bright and early and headed into Exeter for a good old fashioned look around.

Took a while for Joe, my boyfriend, to meet me, so I killed some time by looking at graphic novels in Waterstones, contemplating whether or not to buy any. I decided against it for the time being, but I will undoubtedly be picking up a couple on my trip to Birmingham next month!

So then we had a look in Topshop. Lots of Sale items casually tossed everywhere, which were tempting, but in the end I settled for some sweet yellow plastic bow earrings with a diamante middle and some gold owl earrings, setting me back a comfortable £9 out of the £80 I'd taken out for the day. Then it was straight onto The Shopper's Secret Weapon, Primark, where I managed to pick up a quilted chain bag for £6, some matching shoes for £6 and a boyfriend-fit nautical sweater for £9, adding up to a lovely £21. So only £30 gone so far, not too shabby! We had a coffee each in Costa Coffee, one of the best coffee franchises around if you ignore Starbucks, which is kind of too expensive but SO worth it. Then finally, a quick trip to New Look, where I picked up a 3/4 sleeve bodycon black and red floral print dress for £9 and a gorgeous black wait belt with a gold knot in the middle for £2. So I made my money go quite a long way, really.

I'll put up photos of my purchases ASAP :D

Beginnings :)

So I'm pretty new to this whole "blog" thing. I guess my friend Hannah inspired me to start it up, after constantly seeing updates all over Facebook and Twitter about her blogs, so I thought that maybe this was something I could have a go at.

I guess my life is pretty boring in comparison to a lot of peoples'. I guess to sum myself and my life up, my name's Ellie, I'm seventeen, I study English, Law and History, I'll listen to pretty much any genre of music and I love style. Oh, and you'd be most likely to find me curled up somewhere comfy with a book and my iPod.

My iPod is my child, I love the thing. I have a few artists I listen to a lot, which are mainly Imogen Heap, Tori Amos, The Dresden Dolls, Emilie Autumn, Amanda Palmer, Counting Crows, Horrorpopz, R.E.M and The World/Inferno Friendship Society. Liking similar music to me is always a plus.

My style is pretty varied, though I have a slight penchant for historical fashion, particular the War period and for some reason I love Victorian and Tudor fashion too. Depending on the weather, I tend to wear dresses over jeans or skirts with shirts and sweaters or cardigans. I usually prefer ballet flats to most other shoes, and I pretty much live in cardigans.

Well, that's about it for now, I have work soon, then I need sleep.
Peace and love :)
