When exams take over…

June 5, 2015


Hey everyone, so you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been a little quiet on my blog lately and that is due to the fact that I’m busy writing my final year exams.

I decided to put My Life in Pink on halt till I’ve finished writing on the the 12th June. Honestly I think I may cry when I finally finish writing, I’ve had marketing research and strategic implementation coming out of my ears for the past six weeks!

So for now it’s back to the books and the life of a BBA student…


p.s good luck to anyone else who’s writing.

The pinafore dress… the more girly version of good old dungarees. It’s the perfect item to indulge in school girl chic. With it’s striking simplicity, ease and comfort it’s hard not to love.

Last week I posted an article all about dungarees and how to wear them, the same applies with the pinafore dress, except this time theres more room for more of a girly attitude.
