The little things..

Cardigan + Tights:  New Look
Top: River Island
Skirt: Urban Outfitters

I've always adored this cowl neck top but surprisingly even though i've had it for yonks, it's never actually been worn. Shame to waste such a beautiful top! It's something i'd love to wear to a really posh do, but due to being 18, unless i'm going to a big family party where everyone is dressing up there is not really any other occasion to wear it. I personally love how the cowl neck sits when worn, and it's different to many other tops around too. It sits nice and lightly and is very thick so it's probably not the most practical thing to be wearing with weather like this. Sometimes you've just got to make those sacrifices though, all for the love of fashion! I've dressed the top down a bit by wearing a simple black cardigan instead of opting for an obvious choice of the blazer. I've left it untucked sitting over the skirt loosely as opposed to tucking it in which would still look appropriate and wearable!

I haven't really being doing much recently, i still am finding it incredibly hard to do anything out of the house but i'm trying, just got to take everything day by day. I'm not sleeping either which doesn't help anything, so i've been sent a prescription from one of my doctors for a short course of sleeping tablets which should hopefully help! I've been spending practically all my time with my best friend Chelsea who might as well be living at my house! It's funny how spending time with someone who you are extremely close with makes you realise just how much the little things matter! I've been laughing so much, acting mischievous and just being a bit of my old self really, and it's made me realise how much i miss that side of me. Something i'd of never even taken much notice of before!

Insomnia is a bitch,
I've depended on sleeping pills for years now, which isn't ideal!

Hope they work for you xx

It's a lovely top, indeed.
Sleeping-wise... Do you know that your habit of spending too much time indoors may be directly related to the insomnia? You see, when you get outside, your body produces vitamin D (from the sun), which then works with the hormones responsible for healthy circadian rhythm. So instead of swallowing drugs that may not improve the situation long-term, you'll need to look into what you eat and your lifestyle - less PC, more outdoors. :) I am surprised your doctor didn't explain this to you.
