a little ice and gin

Coat - Vintage // Dress - Topshop (eBay) // Moccasins - Minnetonka // Lipstick - Rimmel Kate Moss 110

Everyone loves snow, right? Apart from the inability to get anywhere and the general panic everyone embodies as soon as the first flake settles, it's good fun. Seeing the children playing out all wrapped up is heart warming and takes me back to my childhood. The snow is able to turn a grown up into a big kid for the day.

My addiction to eBay is getting worse, they must have meeting for this sort of thing surely. "Hello my name is Laurie Rose and I bid until my eye balls fall out." Okay a bit extreme but sometimes I find myself browsing half asleep often mid-dream, I sleep bid, this is not always a bad thing. In one of my midnight bidding frenzies I bagged myself this 100% wool coat for just £8! Warm and a bargain, everyones happy, well just me actually.

  3. Jealous of that coat. I bought one in a charity shop the other day, but unfortunately it's far too big, even to wear as a big coat :(
