'Allo Nighthawk, thees ees Bluetit...

I think the children I work with have been secretly reading my blog.  How else can you explain the fact that, a day or two after I featured the "best teecha" picture drawn for me by one little girl, a second little girl tried to one-up her by turning up with a pretty little friendship bracelet she'd made for me?

Very small fans who bring you presents, and all the free Key Stage One fruit you can steal.  Did I mention I bloody love my job? 

It's in my favourite colours too!  Look how well I match!

[What follows is a picture that shows why I should not be allowed to masquerade as a style blogger, that is because I am inept and can't take decent photographs of clothes, have no Photoshop skillz and in fact can seldom be arsed to actually take boring outfit pictures.]

Blue shirt dress: H&M via charity shop
Red cardigan: Warehouse via charity shop via Father Christmas
Sparkly beret (hair needed a wash): Primark
Swallows brooches: Sunday Girl Accessories
Bracelet: handmade by six-year-old girl
Shoes: Hush Puppy via charity shop via Christmas present.

My friend Tara said "Nice brooches Elizabeth!  Are they bluetits?!"  A-hem.

Also, Primark red lipstick may be cheap and cheerful but it bleeds like nobody's business.  You definitely need lipliner!
Tweet tweet tweet!


  1. I love it when chrilds give you presents. My most cherished one was a handmade card from a four year old saying "Dear Mel. I love you. I hope you have a great day. From Will" It was all correctly spelt too, which I was thrilled considering it was from a four year old.

  2. How sweet. But your friend's comment takes the cake. Blue tits, bwahahahaha!

  3. I love the bird pins!

    I left you a little award on my blog
