pink flamingos

BFF, who is currently in Amsterdam on her year abroad and having a great time eating pancakes and cycling round town pissed on gin, sent me the BEST present everrr in the post on Tuesday;

A Jip & Janneke watch! AMAZING. My mum grew up in Holland, and she used to read me these stories when I was little, and I love them in the same creepy weirdo nostalgic way I love the Moomins. i.e. A LOT. Thanks gurrrrl.

Also yesterday I hit up the Topshop sale to buy these bad boys;

The earrings are HUMONGOUS and have gems for eyes. They make me want to dress up as Divine for Halloween and get my John Waters creep on.

(...Has anyone else started thinking about Halloween, or is it just me?)

why yes, it's just the rain, the rain, always the rain

Dear LORD the weather in Aberdeen has turned abysmal. I am giving up on cocktails and dancing, I finally admit defeat - it's too cold to do anything but stay in bed and eat oranges and drink Lemsip and feel sorry for oneself. Last night one of my flatmates and I went out on a labyrinthine journey which lasted an hour and a half and ended in confusion, 10,000 grey streets, drinking in the rain, and meeting a dead cat. I may as well be living in a Neil Gaiman short story at this point.

completely unedited view from my window this afternoon, i.e. dramatic representation of what it's like to live underwater

Sigh. Back to hate-watching Geordie Shore wrapped in my duvet.

Just got my snaps back from me and the boy's adventures in the marvellous land of jonge jenever, kroketten and stroopwafel. BFF has just moved there for her year abroad - I now feel it would only be RIGHT that I save up and return as soon as poss. For FRIENDSHIP.
