Posing like a Goon.

Since starting this blog I have been "attempting" to take outfit pictures. A number of reasons have been holding me back...

  1. A number of my friends have no idea about this blog, and therefore it is impossible to get anyone to take pictures without weird questions.
  2. I have no spacious rooms to attempt to work my timer (I live in a shared flat with some girls who hibernate like wild animals and store their stuff everywhere!!!).
  3. I probably spend more time choosing my sweets in Tesco than my outfit in the morning. 
  4. My pyjamas are probably my most worn clothes.
  5. I pose like a goon. :-p
Here is a sneaky peek at some of the attempts I have tried. I will continue to try in the future and maybe one day I will crack it.

Graduation Dress Hunting

I have recently been shopping for that "perfect graduation dress". I have to admit I was stumped at what I really wanted. A formal dress is just not me, I was searching for something cute and fun. Let me just tell you it was a nightmare- I must have pulled 100 dresses over my head. I thought I would show you a few of my favourites that I found. 

Miss Selfridge- Petites Printed Prom Dress £47

House of Fraser True Decadence- Crochet Back-less dress £54.99

Oasis- Lace Cutaway Dress Sale £40

Topshop- Heart Back Rib Prom Dress £55

Oasis- Hannah Dress Sale £25

Miss Selfridge- Print Mesh Detail Prom Dress £55

Dorothy Perkins- Scalloped Beaded Dress £60

I am in love with the Topshop Dip Dye Dress, it made me want to spin in circles and play pass the parcel sadly I felt it was more for playing tea party than graduating. 

I did not actually manage to buy one dress... I bought two (eeek)- one slightly more formal, one slightly more fun and poofy. Now I just have to decide which is more suitable (Be warned the following pictures do the dresses no justice- also the second dress is not that short, the models legs are obviously longer than my entire body!!!). 

Debenhams Julien Macdonald- Pink Pleated One Shoulder Dress Sale £27.50

Debenhams Henry Holland- Blue Abstract Flower Taffeta Dress Sale £32

Which of these is your favourite? Help me please. Also if you have any exciting suggestions for flat shoe that match, let me know- I am not taking the risk of falling over in heels.

Putting the Flo back in Flo-rence.

Sorry to be glum chaps but I need a bit of extra puff- I seem to have misplaced my glass that is always half full at the moment. I thought this was a good opportunity to apologise for my lack of blogging and give you a little explanation. You may know if you have been tagging along for a while I moved to London to start out on a new and exciting career. But being a paediatric nurse is sadly not all about playing games with children and cuddling adorable babies. Some days are pretty tough and I am finding my spare time to blog is limited. :-(

In an attempt to be less bitter I have spent the afternoon browsing the internet for nursing inspiration. What is even sadder than that is... I have not found a lot out there.

I never intended on blogging about work but I am hoping to incorporate an element of nursing to my little internet space. With the hope I can make myself and others smile (or cry- who knows?). Don't get me wrong, I love the job most of the time.

P.S. The biggest apology goes to my bister Sarah I know you check everyday for something to read before bed and  like to remind me of this.
