Alphabetights

The day before yesterday I was super pleased as I managed to find my Henry Holland 'Alphabetights' which I bought with some of my birthday money in late October. When they arrived through my letter box, I was SO excited and opened them immediately.
Then DISASTER! I lost them when I came home for Christmas and although I looked absolutely everywhere, I couldn't find them and had to go back to uni without them. Recently though I have really been into patterned sheer tights and so I made a concerted effort... and FOUND THEM! Of course I had to wear them as I love them so much :)
I wore them with my new purple skirt that I wore to my girly meet-up and a black top that I got from T K Maxx last year that I have worn about once. The top was just loose enough to not look slutty (hopefully!) with the rather short skirt. 
Excuse my crazy facial expression and weird hand! I was trying to show you the lovely plaited detail around the neckline and my ring and nail varnish (Opi Pamplona Purple)
UTTER GORM
Yes, my hair is naturally this huge :)
NOM. I love them so much!

These tights also provided me with a welcome break from my HORRIBLE Roman economy essay...I shouldn't have left it until the last minute (as usual!) but I have found it really difficult. The question is horrible and I missed a load of lectures as I was ill, does anyone have any tips for catching up? Or any knowledge about the  Roman economy for that matter?! ;) Luckily my younger sister made some chocolate cakes the other day, the perfect antidote to essay despair!
Luckily, there are plenty more of these bundles of joy to keep me going!
What has been bothering you recently? What is cheering you up?

Hey sweetie
I won some of these babies in a comp in Januaryish (I think) but alas I am a tights killer, I wore them three times until they were beyond repair having a ladder from the waistband down the bum all the way to my knee!

Those cakes look gorgey, Im munching on victoria sponge atm.

And you know whats bothering me right now but thank you so much for looking after me xx
