Velvet










                                    Dress - Thrift Shop
                                    Boots - Cans
                                    Jacket - Primark 

On Thursday this week, we had the wonderful opportunity to attend a conference with all the colleges in Ireland, some UK colleges and a few international ones.

I was really hoping the event will help guide me towards not only a college but a course that'll be suited for me. I've bounced between career options for the last few years, all seemingly related to the TV series I was addicted to at the time. Surgeon ( Grey's Anatomy), Lawyer ( Suits) and even criminal ( White Collar, OITNB). 

In a month or two I have to fill out an application with the courses and universities I want. There aren't many chances after then for a change of mind for an indecisive person like myself.

Thankfully the Prospectuses I spent half the day logging around are giving me a lot more information than the few people I spoke to that day.

I don't know what I'll be when I grow up...yet but I'm ready and searching high and above within myself to find out!

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

It's a shame Ultimate Thrift Shopper isn't a recognized job title...anywhere. I found this gem of a dress tucked in between a tightly packed line of clothes. Midnight velvet with an oriental touch. It was definitely love at first sight. So much so that I hid it, deeply, within the clothes and went back for it the next day! If that's not commitment, I don't know what is!

Also, It's exactly one more week till my birthday!!! Yaaas!!!! *insert appropriate party emojis*

  1. Honestly, I did an entire undergraduate degree and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up! I remember when I was very young I wanted to be a teacher, but that thought is long gone - it's definitely not a 'me' thing. I hope you find yourself having an easier time with it. But, if you don't, just remember so many people are in the same position :)

    I love your dress! You seem to be so successful with second hand/thrift shops. I really like it paired with the jacket, the combination of such different, diverse fabrics is so brilliant!

    2. @Erin you're like a hub of comforting words!! I also wanted to be a teacher but I totally get the 'me' thing. It's a lovely idea I like to entertain but it's not for me either.

      Thrift shopping is borderline unhealthy for me. I live a few minutes from our local thrift shop and I don't think I've ever walked in there without leaving with something, hahaha I'm terrible for it but this dress was a total gem and thank you so much for your kind words!

      I love the Leibster awards, thank you so much for the nomination, it's amazing that you'd even want to nominate me :O However, I've participated in it a few times with past blogs and although I won't be fully partaking this time, I have a few blogs I know would be perfect for this award and I'll link them to your site for more details.

      Thank you so much Erin!! xxx
