I feel as if a lot has happened since I last posted. I've been very busy and the last week or so seems to be a bit of a blur.
I've been down to London again to watch Wimbledon, which is one of the most incredible experiences ever, may I add. I guess not many people know, but I've been playing tennis since I was under 5 and its a sport that I truly love and am very passionate about. I've had the opportunity to represent my county and my district on numerous occasions so it was truly a fantastic day watching matches last week. My sister and I only had tickets originally for Court No.1 but two lovely ladies came up to us and asked if we would like their tickets for Centre Court!!!! We couldn't believe it. We saw Venus and Serena Williams, Laura Robson, Patrick McEnroe and the Brian brother play. Now that Wimbledon is over I feel a little lost as what to do with my time. Yesterday's match was monumental and I never use to be a massive Andy Murray fan until I saw him cry over his loss. Love you Andz. xox But I'm a huge fan of Federer and I believe Andy Murray could not have lost to a more worthy champion. 
Moving on from my in-depth and passionate waffle about tennis, this is meant to be a fashion blog right? The skirt is very 'me' imo, I bought it from Primark last week in the wrong size and ended up queuing for about half an hour on Oxford Street for one that fit me. But you know what? I'm glad I did.  I've become a little obsessed with jewellery lately and I adore my new necklace from Romwe. Skulls and spikes, what more does a girl need?
My favourite place to take blog photos has to be the bridge I'm pictured on above. Its scenic, quiet and I like the lighting. However I've planned to go there a few times over the past few weeks only to find it inhabited by cows - see here! Its a glamorous life!
