A glimpse of summer and a new dress.



By C.Elizabeth



I first will start by saying how interesting it was to read about how so many people are also into vampire stories. I say it once more, if you get the chance, read "Salem's Lot". I still haven't finished it but so far, it's the perfect book.

I've always been a big reader. Sometime reading 3-4 books a month, depending on my mood. I simply think it's such an important thing to do...You can learn so much on life by doing so! Nowadays, people are more interested in watching TV or reading tabloids: easy options for a lazy society. Just like fast food. So just like fast-food, if you look a big further, you discover there are so many healthier options! Also... what's better than the smell of a book?

Last weekend was a real glimpse of summer... a very short one though as it's been raining almost everyday since. Except yesterday. Today's not too bad either, but very windy and chilly. When will nice weather finally settle in?
As usual, since it was nice outside, we went out for a walk.







White top from Marks & Spencer, Brown vest top from Garage, Denim skirt from Simons, leggings from H&M, sandals from Aldo (I think).



On Thursday, I went shopping during my lunch time to get a little present for a person from work who finished on Friday. As I walked through H&M, I saw a dress. Well, I actually think the dress called me. I simply fell in love with it. Though, as I was a bit on a rush to get back to work, I thought I'd come back the following day to try it on and buy it. Of course, when I went back on Friday, they only had size 12, 14 and 18 left. I was gutted. Fortunately, a very helpful sale assistant gave me the number of the Manchester City Center H&M, which is much bigger. Since I planned on going on Saturday anyway, I thought I'd give it a try. They had only one size left, which was my size so I managed to reserve it until the following day. I don't need to tell you how excited I was (Yeah, I know, it's just a dress but...). I ended up buying it. The style is very 1950's like, which I absolutely love. I just can't wait to get the weather for me to wear it! Anyway, here it is:
