Ernest Hemingway was born on this day in 1899 — if he were alive, it’d be his 115th birthday. To celebrate, we’ve wrangled up 15 photos that best illustrate his adventuresome spirit.

Driving through Solwezi..

Hey Guys! Want to know why I haven’t been posting regularly? Weeelll….its because I’m in Africa!!! I have been here for a week now and am on a one month internship out here with a construction company. There’s not much to my outfits here as there is so much dust it’s pretty much a case of wearing stuff you don’t mind ruining! Once I am back I will plan a few posts on packing etc and what to take for the flight etc but for now I may post some scenery photographs for your viewing pleasure :)

Take care guys,

found the right shade of turquoise!! Shame it’s sh*t qual. had to do three coats to get an even colour. lol. It’s Barry M if anyone is wondering. Usually I’m really happy with their colours. Ah well..

This whole outfit apart from the cardigan was bought in 2005 and it’s all from GUESS. The cardigan is from MANGO sale. Rings were Topshop and H&M.

Remember I said I wanted to cut my hair really short but was waiting for my cousin’s wedding to be over before I did it? Well, i did it.

Lol so I tried out hair chalk. Flipping hell. This is how I did it. Beware your hands and any clothing will get dirty and the chalk colour doesn’t wash out of clothing! First time my hair was damp, and the colour didn’t come out so then I read the instructions and realised your hair has to be wet, see fifth photo, and tried again. Damaged the crap outta my hair! 

What I wore to work! 

Jumper- Zara sale  |  Shirt- Primark  |  Trousers- Zara  |  Shoes- Minnetonka Kilty

Ha I look so miserable.. ah well who cares about my stupid face. This outfit was the result of a last minute dash to get ready for work in time!!!! 

This jumper from Zara has become a favourite of mine. The boxy shape suits my build and the cropped length adds interest to any outfit that calls for a plain grey jumper. 

I think a grey jumper is pretty essential to a wardrobe and I think I’ve found mine!! What’s your favourite grey jumper? Have you found it yet or are you still looking?
