Scalloped

A pretty terrible post I know- the camera was just not cooperating today...it's raining out so no chance of outside photos either. Anyway I'm trying to give these old Topshop jeans a new lease of life as shorts (looking like cycling shorts at the mo, is that two trends in one?) with scalloped edges- although said edges do need a bit more work. The necklace is my mum's though she seems to have abandoned it, I always coveted it, and seems like my patience paid off! (it's from UO).

I'm furiously applying for jobs left right and centre, and even a couple of internships- furious being the operative word as I cannot wait to leave the current job and several people there have my blood pressure sky rocketing with their behaviour.
D's new job seems to be going ok, I think it'll make him a more rounded individual, there's no way it can't really seeing as he's spent the best part of the last 2 years working for his dad, with his brother (who I despise profoundly- I've never met someone so lazy and selfish in my life. Oh and he called me the C word the other day too, in a very casual yet serious way. I could go on and on but then the bottom line is, he'll always be D's brother so there's nothing much I can do).

To make up for terrible outfit photos, some more from my Cordoba trip (plus the first one):

  1. Hahahaha I took photos almost identical to the first and last one when I was in Cordoba over the weekend! such a beautiful city!

    Really clever idea with the jeans, i have cut my jeans into shorts several times, but never thought to try something like that!

    Good luck with the job search! xx

  2. WHAT? I hope D had something to say to his brother about that! That's bloody disgusting behaviour. I'm so cross on your behalf!

    On a more positive note, I love your scalloping. Such a cute look.

  3. Stunning photos of the flowers, I love the one of the poppy so much!

    They say you can't choose your family...but in a sense you sort of can. I mean it is much easier to avoid dealing with unpleasant family members of one's own if the matter comes down to it, because that choice is up to you. When it comes to family members of other people, you kind of don't have that much of a choice no matter what wankers they are. I absolutely LOATHE my boyfriends brother, he is also very lazy, but by lazy I mean 21 years old with not even a basic high school education, never had a job and never even intends on getting one. Pretty much his ambition in life is to get welfare and live with his parents. He sits around all day screaming profanities at the computer screen and is an unbearable person to be around in all manner of ways.

    Unfortunately this whole brother of the boyfriend thing is kind of a grey area for girls like us... I feel like I have to avoid saying anything negative no matter how true it is and just avoid the whole situation in general unless given very good reason to say what I think.

    Honestly though, if D's brother called you the c-word, then that really is a cause to be an utmost bitch to him and make a huge scene about it, or at least that's what I would do!

    Hope you have some good luck with finding a better job, chin up lovely :)

  4. Oh don't even get me started on lazy selfish people...there were so many at my hubby's last job that it was utterly disgusting. I can't imagine what goes through the heads of people like that.

    Anyways, you look beautiful and that is such a nifty idea with the jeans..love the scallops and that headband is divine!!

    Best wishes as you continue to job hunt. Hang in there. The right one will come along:)

  6. Ugh he sounds like a complete idiot to put it nicely. Its hard when you dont get on with your boyfriends family members. I feel like my boyfriends sister is rude to me but yet if I say anything I am the one in the wrong. Its alright though for her to ignore me? Its such a grey area.

    Good luck with applying for jobs, im in the same boat and its so frustrating. I have had two interviews but they are for internships so not paid. Its a worrying thing to have to work 3 months with hardly any wages coming in. Ill be getting £120 a month from my Sunday job!

  11. I love what you've done with the shorts - get you hitting two trends at the same time ;)
    And god that must be frustrating having to deal with someone like that. Especially when you can't really keep moaning about him to D... or does he agree haha?!
    Hope your job hunt is successful - I'm in the same boat now,

  13. I hate it when camreas become trouble makers!
    Anyway, hell yeah, bring back life in this pair. it's so annoying to throw something that you know you can fix, or make something new out of it. I love your hair bow :) xx

  16. Such an adorable idea for shorts, absolutely lovely! I'm sorry I've been absent as of late dear, I shall be away a little while longer but I just wanted to pop in and make sure you know how much I miss your sweetness.

  17. You take such beautiful photographs, and I love how you have reinvented the topshop jeans into shorts. It's unfortunate that you don't get along with your boyfriend's brother. That's a toughie because you have to be pleasant to them otherwise it might cause trouble. I hope you find a new job soon, I have my fingers crossed for you!
