It's official... this neon sock and ankle boot combo makes my legs look SO stumpy! Like i've never seen my legs look so short before, it's weird.

Do you ever look back at old posts on your blog and think "WHAT was I thinking"?! I totally just deleted a load of posts because I can't bare for anyone else to see some of my old atrocious outfits. My style changes every day, i'm like a chameleon. One day i'm a goth, the next i'm super girly. Sometimes it's annoying because I can't just settle for one style, I get bored so easily. If I had one particular interest I could focus my whole wardrobe on that style, but with Tumblr being my biggest inspiration, I see so so so many amazing different styles that I take my inspiration from, so my wardrobe is pretty much all over the place. It's actually overflowing. I can not. Stop. Buying. Clothes!

I AM LITERALLY A SHOPAHOLIC!

I am absolutely skint yet definitely still managed to find the pennies to order myself another pair of Jeffrey Campbells yesterday. I don't know what is wrong with me, if I see something I want on eBay, I convince myself that I am NEVER going to find that thing again, it'll NEVER appear on eBay again and I absolutely HAVE to buy it then and there. I get such a buzz from having a bidding war, I always go in at about 12 seconds and pretty much always win the auction, 99.9% of the time. I hate people who bid days before the auction ends. WHY? Why bump up the price when you could wait till the end and get it way cheaper?!

In other news, I FINALLY GOT AN IPHONE! I rang up Vodafone to complain about my stupid Blackberry, which I couldn't stand any longer. They weren't having none of it and told me to wait till December before I could upgrade. The next thing I know, my boyfriend has ordered me an iPhone with his network Three. I died! He never sneakily surprises me, I always have to buy my own presents. So it was a pleasent surprise indeed, to be told my new shiny white iPhone will be arriving in a couple of days. And here I am now, addicted to Instagram and the front camera.

Follow me on Instagram @lulutrixabelle ... although be warned, I post a lot of photos of cats. But i'm sure you don't mind ;)

Speaking of cats, my poor fluffy baby keeps having seizures/fits. We went to get her checked and it turns out she's got "an overactive thyroid", whatever that means. But they said she only has a couple of years left and she needs to go on medication for the rest of her life :( Just look how cute she is. I don't want to lose her!
No idea why i'm babbling on so much today, i'm so bored.
Have a lovely day wherever you are!

LOVE LUCY
xoxo

  11. That shirt is amazing, you're really good at shopping aha.
    Also my cat had thyroid problems recently, luckily she's had the operation and is better, but it's so sad that she's getting old. Definitely don't want to think about how much longer she's got! Yours is adorable, bless her.

  26. ohh you look so cute! i think i may have this beanie! mine seems to be neoner but i don't know if its because my hairs so dark that it makes me look like i should be wearing it to go out running in the dark. either way, you look waaaayyyyy better in it than me you babe!

  27. I love the matching socks and beanie, matching socks to things in general looks great. Your legs look long crazy girl. Looking forward to seeing your new JCs. Dont worry about your kitty mine went through something similar but is still alive and well. you can tryb weaning her to a half tablet eventually so it's not so bad on her liver x MIAOLIVER.BLOGSPOT.COM

  28. lovely, love how you matched your socks and beanie!
    and your cat is gorgeous xx

  29. I ABSOLUTELY share your ebay angst. WHY DO PEOPLE BID 5 DAYS BEFORE THE END?! And then they don't get outbidded, but they decide to bid again anyway like a couple of hours later? As if that extra bid is going to scare of any lurking potential bidders like "oh shit yeah this guy means business bidding twice in one day better leave it". So annoying. But I love your shirt! 30p amazing. I hope your cat gets better too :( x
