Lace-d up and Fancy Free

Morning! ('s 11:59am, it's all about the details, folks!). I'm so excited to read that some of you actually like tennis. REVELATION. This is awesome because I pretty much know zero people who can even muster up the tiniest lip-twitching smile about the sport. And now I have made this discovery, I will hesitate much less when I want to fangirl ridiculously over a tennis match/player/fact :p

It's been another sweltering week in London. It's like stupid hot. Well, I say stupid but I love a hot summer! I think we deserve it after the freak snowstorms and don't even get me started on the rain...

So with the sun beating down relentlessly, I decided to throw an impromptu barbecue on Sunday with ma famille and the boyfriend. Good times were had by all and I even took a pitiful shot of my outfit

It may look like my gladiators are undone and that's because, well, they are. I was traipsing in and out of my house and I couldn't be fussed with doing the million buckles (there's actually only four, but exaggeration was called for, non?)

The top is something I nabbed just the other day from the Topshop sale <3. I'm ready for my close-up...

Haaa, don't worry, I wouldn't put a close up of my face. I wouldn't want to punish you lovelies with something so terrible!

I even managed to snap a photo of the boyfriend. I will admit right now it's a pretty lame attempt at anything close to a good shot, but I gotta take what I got

I ambushed him whilst he was tying his shoes and he still looks cute! <3

I am in super good/invincible mode right now. My degree results came in and I did well! I got a 2:1 (:
 And as an added bonus, all my friends from my course and all my friends at other universities did equally well!
Good times.

The super-scary-terrible-but-potentially-good-thing is tomorrow so keep the support rumblin', yo! 

Much love
