On the Road - Nottingham

Me and mum had a 260 mile trip to Nottingham University so I thought I'd take a few unnecessary snaps.
The University campus itself is outside the city on a beautiful 300 acre plot, mostly made up of amazing green open space and a boating lake!
However this was my first visit, and I thought it would be a bit strange if I was more concerned with taking pictures than my degree!
Here are some on-the-road pictures, mainly lorries, hah.

Trip to the Tea Room

I skipped a day of college today (I have pre-Easter-Holiday blues) which was stupid I know but the sun was giving me a big warm hug and I thought I better enjoy myself before the Exam stress kicks in.
After Mumma B had got back from work me and her went to the tea rooms in our village, and also the most beautiful and homely vintage shop, that I will introduce you to soon.
More after the Break.

The Art Trail 'Gangster Route'

I took a trip with my mum who looked completely and utterly adorable to Chelmsford to take a quick look at the Art Trail.
Its a little route hidden away that I only noticed when I was staring out of the train window.
They do an Art Trail every year, and you follow a route around the town and look at all the local art!
This is a section that has been left, and they're all on boards that surround the building sites in that area. 
I love, love LOVED it, if you can, come and see these beauties in person.
I'm not usually that interested in graffiti, but there's something about this that is just gorgeous!
These are only some of my favourites, more after the break.

It goes on and on and on, it took us 20 minutes to get round!

Dressing Up 22-03-2K12

There was gorgeous weather in England today, my knees demanded exposure. 
Here are the stupidly cheap threads I wore to college.
Spring is my BFF.

Hello pasty legs.

  • Jumper - Thrifted: £2.50
  • Shirt - Thrifted: £1
  • Shorts - Cut from old trousers
FYI: I use the word Thrifted now because a) It sounds like I hunted my clothes down in a dramatic way and b) Americans say it how it is.

  •  Necklace - Small Jewellery shop in Southend: £1
That badboy has the best plastic stone rip-offs I have ever seen.
Pairing high necklaces with collared shirts is my favourite thing to do at the moment. 
Had to pin between the buttons to avoid the awkward 'boob hole' however, I hope that makes sense because that could sound dangerous. 
  • Shoes - Ebay: £5
  • Cheeky tattoo show
I have a tattoo on my leg which I'll post about soon, it is actually black but my tights are making it look a little lighter. 
I suncreamed this guy quite a bit before letting him out.

  • Nails - Collection 2000 'Angel Wings' from Superdrug : £1.79
  • Ring - Dorothy Perkins: £1
I am defiantly on the hunt for more cut-out rings.
